It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

To the poor of the parish of Christ Church, in London, he gave L10 sterling, and the same amount to the poor of North Aston in Oxfordshire the place of his nativity. To his wife, Elizabeth, he gave a gold watch and L1,000 sterling and her part of his negroes for life, and after her death, to his son, Armistead; he gave her besides “my new calash I expect out of England.” To his daughter, Priscilla, L1,000 sterling, and to his daughter, Elizabeth, L100, leaving his wife to advance her fortune out of her own.

Armistead Family # 1

1. Anthony Armistead (Ar12) of Kirk Deighton, York Co., England, m. Frances Thompson. It has been a tradition that the Armisteads derived their name and origin from Darmstadt, and that their seat, Hesse, in Gloucester Co., VA, also derived its name from the same source. Without deciding when or whether in modern times they crossed the German Ocean, it is sufficient to say that they were Englishmen for several generations before William Armistead came to America, the name, with varied spelling, frequently appeared in Yorkshire records of the time of Queen Elizabeth. The emigrant to Virginia seems, from the names of his children, Anthony and Frances, to have been the son of Anthony “Armistead” of Kirk Deighton, Yorkshire, and Frances Thompson, of the same place, who obtained a marriage license in the year 1608. On 3 Aug 1610, William y son of Anthony Armsteed of Kirk Deighton was baptized at All Saints Church, the only church in the parish.

2. William Armistead (Ar11)b. bef 1610, Kirk Deigton, baptized 3 Aug 1610 at All Saints Church, Kirk Deighton, York, England, buried before 1660 m. Anne (?). William was the emigrant and progenitor of the VA family. He came to the Colony about 1635. William received a patent in 1636 from Cap. John West, then Governor of Virginia, for 450 acres in Elizabeth City County; among his headrights was his wife, Anne. William was the builder of Hesse, which he built high on the bank of the Pianketank.

3. John Armistead (Ar10), Col., b. 1635, d. 1698, m. Judith Robinson, (daughter of John and Elizabeth (Potter) Robinson). John was also known as “The Councillor” Sheriff of Gloucester in 1675, Burgess in 1685, and appointed to the Council in 1687. After the accession of William and Mary to the English throne, he, with Isaac Allerton and Richard Lee, was dropped from the Council for refusing to take the oaths. Obviously they were more bothered about the question of the rightful succesion of James II to the throne than his Roman Catholic tendencies, as recognizing William and Mary as King and Queen might well have been deemed high treason had James II ever returned to power.

4. Elizabeth Armistead (Ar9-2) b. 1667, m(1)1687 Ralph Wormeley, Col. (son of Capt. Ralphe and Agatha (Eltonhead) Wormeley), d. 1710 [see our descent from this match in Wormeley], m(2) in 1703, William Churchill of Middlesex, VA. Ralphe of Rosegill.

Henry Tasker, to Spencer Mottrom Ball, Capt., b. 6 Aug 1762, Coan, Northumberland Co., VA, d. 28 Feb 1832, Portici, Prince William Co., VA, (son of Spencer Mottrom and Elizabeth (Waring) Ball, Col.). Elizabeth’s will was written 9 Apr 1841, and names children Fanny Tasker Lewis, Alfred, Elizabeth Lucy Carter, Louisa and Adaline. The other children were deceased by then. Portici occupies a portion of the Manassas Battlefield and is known in history as the Lewis House. Spencer’s will was proved 4 Jun 1832.

8. Elizabeth Lucy Ball b. 16 Aug 1791, Nomini, Westmoreland Co., VA, d. 1855, Mountain View, Fairfax Co., VA, m. 5 Mar 1807, William Fitzhugh Carter b. 16 Aug 1782, Sudley, Prince William Co., VA, d. 27 Aug 1836, Mountain View, Fairfax Co., VA, (son of John and Janet (Hamilton) Carter).
