|Si10 Mary Sisson b about 1635. Although she may have been in Bristol prior to her father's arrival in Virginia about 1621,
it seems more likely that the latter came with a young bride or first married in Virginia, since ocean voyages
were an extreme hardship in those days and took as long as nine weeks. A voyage with small children was
indeed tedious and many a strong man died of disease und malnutrition on the way.
Died: after 1705 (which also indicates a birth between 1630 and 1640)

"25 November 1755 William Browne, of the colony of Virginia, age 70 or thereabouts, saith that he hath many times been informed in his youth by the ancient inhabitants of his neighborhood that a certain David WICKLIFFE together with Jane Brown who was this deponent's mother, about 100 years ago had been obliged to fly from the province of Maryland to this colony to avoid the violence of a Roman Catholic faction there or to recieve or be brought up in the Protestant religion here, and that they were at the time of their coming and landing at Mattox Creek (where they lived their whole lives) "infants of tender years." That David Wickliffe lived many years in sd. Mattox Neck and that he remembers often to have seen him and that it was curently reported that David had married a widow of one Nicholas by whom he had issue, David, Robert, and Deborah all with whom the deponent was well acquainted. The said Davd,the son, m. Elizabth Cullum, and had issue, Isaac his eldest son, who had issue David Wickliffe who is about 30 years of age. He saith that he hath many time heard that David Wickliffe the elder was the first male child born in the province of Maryland of Protestant parents."
|For decades Mary's maiden name has been variably thought to be Lisson, Sisson or Sissons.
Even a website about the Washingtons and Popes and also calling by the
name of Sisson went on to mention her brother as Captain Daniel Lisson, who took the
Northumberland Oath in 1652 (see below for this). This
seemed to be a break through to learning more her real family name.
Mary (Sisson) Pope, alias Bridges, gave a calf to her son Nathaniel
Pope, alias Bridges, in 1675. As Mary Nicholas, widow of Lewis Nicholas,
she made presents in 1677 to her son Nathaniel Pope, alias Bridges, and
to her son Lewis Nicholas. She married again, Daniel Whitley, who promised
to keep her children "so farre at school as to write and reade". Mary Nicholas
refers to her brother and sister, Captain Daniel Sisson and Jane, his wife.
The will of John Rosier (will, September-October,1705) leaves land to Nathaniel
Pope, clerk of Stafford and practitioner at law; and the rest of the estate
is given to his wife, Mary Rosier, who was Mary Pope, alias Bridges.
But finally Judith Sisson Hynson, Director of Research & Library Collections, Stratford Hall has weighed in to correct this confused reading of old script that let an "S" look like an "L". Only the Sissons can know that they have always gone by this name.
|Si12. Richard Sisson b 1571 England Progenitor
Si11. Thomas Sisson b about 1590 in ?London d about 1650 in Va.
Considering his experience in trade and his son's linguistic accoplishments it seems likely that he traded with the native Americans and that at least his son Daniel went along on these adventures at a young age.
The first bearer of the SISSON surname to sail from England for Virginia was "SISSON, Thos, of London Towne, haberdasher." He is of documentary record as resident in the Tidewater region of Virginia in 1623, among the very earliest settlers there. Nothing more than that is known of him, . . . . (Ref: "Some Emigrants to Virginia, compiled from records by W.G. Standard" [Richmond, Va: Bell Book & Stationery Co., 1911]; also Virginia Magazine of History & Biography, Vol 19, p 132.)
|Another reference to Thomas SISSON (1) appears in the Minutes of the Council and General Court, 1622-1624, the original of which is now preserved in the Library of Congress at Washington, DC. It reads: "Court held . . . [torn] . . . 1624/L. Pott -- The oathes of Supremacy & Alleg./ To these whose names are underwritten . . ." whereafter the list includes: "Thos. SISSON of london, haberdasher." All immigrants on this list (one of the two earliest extant for Virginia) arrived before Feb 1622, because many of their names likewise appear in the Colonial census taken then. (Ref: Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, pub by the Virginia Historical Society, Richmond, VA, 1911, Vol XXIX [a mistake for vol 19].)
|As aforesaid, Thomas Sisson (1) emigrated from London, where he had been a haberdasher, to Virginia, shortly before 1622. Nothing else concerning his personal career is known, but it is assumed that he was the father of Capt John Sisson, Robert Sisson, Daniel Sisson, Mary Sisson, and Nicholas Sisson.||To date only one of the name Sisson has tested in R1b1a2+.||There was also a Richard SISSON b c 1608 in England d before 26 Feb 1683/1684 in Portsmouth, Newport Co., Rhode Island founded a considerable New England branch of the family.
Then there was Edward Sisson m Elizabeth Carr b c 1563, who may have been ancestors of all shown here or more remotely related.

John Sisson's will, probated 16 Mary 1663 in Anne Arundel County, names wife Frances, eldest daughter Jean Sisson, daughter Eliza Sisson, brother Benjamin Sison, brother Cornelius Howard (i.e., brother-in-law) . . . John's wife's Frances Gorsuch's sister Elizabeth Gorsuch Howard, the wife of Cornelius Howard. The land of Jane and Elizabeth SISSON is included in the Maryland Rent Rolls of Baltimore and Anne Arundel Counties in 1666 and 1667

|Captain Daniel Sisson acted as interpreter for negotians with the indians.
Governor Berkeley’s treaty of peace after the end of the 1646 War with Opechancanough prohibited all emigration to the north side of the Rappahannock River. This restriction was repealed in 1648, and immigrants poured in from England, Maryland, New England, and previously settled portions of Virginia. Hercules Bridges, Henry Brooks and Nathaniel Pope were the early patentees of the Mattox Neck area (of three creeks, Mattox, Bridges, Popes) destined to become part of Westmoreland County.
The Henry Brooks patent of 1657, reissue 1662, included 1,020 acres (4.1 km2) bounded: “on the northwest side to a marked corner hickory with a creeke [unnamed Bridges] that divideth this land and the land now in possession of Daniel Sisson on the northeast side with the Potomack river on the southeast side with the Creeke [unnamed Popes] dividing this land from the land of Col. Nathaniel Pope to a marked red oake on the southwest thence with a line of marked trees running west and northwest 60 poles northwest half a point more westerly 310 poles and west northwest somewhat more westerly 140 poles to the aforementioned hiccory and place.”

Mary SISSON (not LISSON) was the second wife of David WICKLIFFE.
(The problem with the spelling of Lisson was the way the L's were written
at the time, if you look at texts on graphology. For Wickliffe, there was
also probably still a reidue of old Angle/Saxon dialect in some people's
pronunciation in the 17th century, where some still spoke the gutteral
"gh" in "Leigh" but others could not and followed the Norman fashion clipping
it or shifting it to "ff", so Whightleigh would become either Wickliff
or Whiteley, depending on which clerk had the ordeal of writing down the
illiterate person's name) The following will send you to the approprite

It should be noted that it is not unusual for the surname WHETTLEY to
be used in referring to the WICKLIFFE family. In at least two other
court records, David WICKLIFFE is referred
to as both David WHITLEY and David WHITLIFFE (or other variant) in the
same entry. Note also the correct usage of the name in the record
narrative - such variations in spelling are common in records of the period.
Therefore, it must be concluded that David was married prior to his marriage
to Mary SISSON.

If you check the records far back enough, you find that Mary SISSON was the sister of Daniel LISSON. She was never the wife of any Robert LISSON or SISSON. The confusion may come in the reading of Daniel LISSON'S probate records, as he died without issue, and his relatives from Bristol, England had to settle his estate. One of them was named Robert, and had a wife named Mary, but this was after David WICKLIFFE married Mary SISSON.
Mary SISSON was not a LISSON by either marriage or birth. She was b. Mary SISSON, as per the following:
Westmoreland Co. Deeds, Patents, etc.
20 July 1677, Mary NICHOLAS, widow, to my loving son Lewis NICHOLS (here listed property). In case it shall please the Almighty to take to himselfe my sonne Lewis NICHOLAS...then all the aforesaid estate to my loveing sonne and his brother-in-law (meaning stepbrother) Nath: Pope alias BRIDGES (because he was the stepson of a man named BRIDGES),...If my sonnes should depart this life before the age aforesaid and myself be deceased alsoe, then the whole estate both of Nath: and Lewis to be equally divided between the surviving children of my brother and sister Mr. Danill LISSON and Jane LISSON.
There is a similar entry on the same date regarding her son Nathaniel's
estate. This establishes her maiden name as LISSON.
She was married to Nathaniel POPE, by whom she had a son Nathaniel. She then married someone named BRIDGES, and then Lewis NICHOLAS.
There are many court records to support this, but this one contains
three husband's names in one record:
8 June 1675
Mary BRIDGES of Westmoreland Co. unto my loving sonne Nathaniel POPE alias BRIDGES. (The term alias was used frequently in the colonial records, sometimes to identify a woman by both her maiden name and married name simultaneously, as when the first Nathaniel POPE transferred property to his then married daughter as "Ann POPE alias WASHINGTON", or because a stepson was sometimes identified by his stepfather's name)...For natural affection. One mare...Below the entry is added on 25 August 1675. Acknowledged by Lewis NICHOLAS who married Mary POPE alias BRIDGES after his marriadge.
After Lewis NICHOLAS died she married David WICKLIFFE:
"25 July 1677. Marry NICHOLAS, widdow, hath by three severall deeds of gife made over to her chilldren Nath: POPE alias BRIDGES and Lewis NICHOLAS severall goods and chattles.
Mary hath invested me David WHITLIFE with the care and tuition of Nathaniell and Lewis and allsoe with there estate.

"The Englishmen on the banks of the Potomac mingled elegant pleasures
with rude labors and perilous enterprises. There is a record of a contract
in 1670 between John LEE, son of Col. Richard LEEE, then deceased, Henry
CORBIN, Isaac ALLERTON, and Dr. Thomas GERRARD, for building a banqueting
house at or near their respective lands. The English colonist acted as
far as the circumstances would permit, precisely as he would in London.

FURTHER DETAILS OF HIS LIFE FROM THE RECORDS
OF WESTMORELAND CO., VIRGINIA
BY THE EDITOR.
The important paper of Mr. Stanard in the last issue of the "Quarterly"
concerning the Washington family may be supplemented by other information. It
appears from the records of Westmoreland County that the Washington Family
from the earliest times was one of great distinction in the Northern Neck. John
Washington, (1) the emigrant, was a leading Justice and military character, who
like most of the men of wealth was a loyalist in Bacon's Rebellion.
That celebrated commotion in Virginia was preceded by difficulties with
the Indians in Stafford County. In the summer of 1675, a herdsman named
Robert Hen was slain there by a party of the hostile tribe of Doegs. Col. George
Mason and Capt. Brent with some militia pursued the offenders, and in the
hostilities some Susquehannocks, a friendly tribe, were slaughtered. These latter
had been recently expelled from their own country at the head of the
Chesapeake Bay by the Senecas, a tribe of the five nations. Encompassed on
all sides they took refuge in an old fort erected by Maryland for the protection
of the frontier. At the invitation of Maryland this fort was besieged in the latter
part of 1675, by a joint army of Marylanders and Virginians. The Marylanders
were commanded by Major Thomas Truman and the Virginians by Col. John
Washington and Major Isaac Allerton. Before the siege commenced five Indian
chiefs came out for a parley; they were seized and put to death. This action can
hardly be justified by the rules of war, and it goaded the savages to desperate
valor and occasioned a universal Indian war. But it is sufficiently proved by these
papers that Washington and his Virginians were not responsible for the deed:----
June ye 14th, 1677. A narrative of ye Susquehannocks ffort soe fare as I
know concerning ye killing of ye five Indians. As soone as our Virginia forces
were landed in Maryland we found five Susquehannoh Indians under a guard &
inquireing ye reason of their restraint were answered they endeavoured an
escape & thereof were secured till our comeing in ordr to a treaty wee informing
ye Marylandrs our businesse was first to treat & require satisfaction for ye murder
perpetrated before wee declared ourselves open enemies and proceeded to
hostile actions. Lt. Coll. John Washington and Major Isaac Allerton upon this
information thought it convenient to have them stronger guarded & themselves
alsoe during ye treaty weh being done & Coll. Washington & Major Allerton
accordingly treating there first demand was satisfaction for ye murder & spoyles
committed on Virginnia shore Major Trueman in ye interim remaining silent. After
long debate somethings therein-made by Coll. Washington & Major Allerton ye
Indians disowned all ye was Aledged to them & imputed it all to Senecas. Coll.
Washington & Major Allerton urged ye sevrall Cannoes loaded with beefe & port had bin carried into there
fort alleadging yt there enimyes would not be so kinde as to supply with
provisions & farther yt some of these men had a little before bin taken on
Virginnia side who had ye Cloathes of such as had bin a little before murdered
upon there backes, which made it appeare that they had bin the murderers, for
these reasons Major Allerton & Coll. Washington demanded satisfaction or else
they must proceed agt them as enimyes & storm there fort, and commanded the
interpreter to bid them defiance. During ye time of this treaty Major Trewman
came & asked ye Gentl whether they had finished, saying when you have done I
will say something to them. And when Coll. Washington & Major Allerton had
ended their treatie he send and commanded his interpreter, John Shanks, to ask
them how theire Indians came to be buried at Hursons & after a little further
discourse caused them to be bound & told them he would carry them to ye place
& show theire nine Indians where they lay dead. Major Allerton asked him what
he did intend to doe with them? Afterwards Majoy Trewman answered he
thought they deserved ye like to weh Major Allerton replyed, I do not think soe.
Noe sooner was this discourse ended between Major Allerton & Major Trewman
than ye Marylandrs carried away these five Indians & before they hardly got five
hundred yards distance from the place of this discourse & treaty spoken of, ye
Marylandrs killed them & further saith not.
Sworne before us by virtue of an ordr to us from ye right Honble ye
NICHO SPENCER, June ye 13th, 1677, recorded.
June ye 14th, 1676. A narative of Treatment at ye Susquihano
fare as they concern ye killing of ye five Indians. As soon as we were landed in
Maryland wee found five of ye Susquihano Indians under a guard of two files of
Marylandrs. Coll. Washington & Major Allerton enquired the Reason of it and
were answered yt they had endeavored to gett away, the Coll. Washington &
Major Alerton acquainted Major Truman, there orders were to treat with them and
demand satisfaction before they proceeded in a hostile way & after they had
drawne a strong guard about ye said Indians they began to demand satisfaction
for ye murthers and spoyles don in Virginia, but they would owne nothing, saying
ye mischieffs were done by the Senecas & not by them. While this lasted, Major
Truman said severall times Genttl have you done, for I resolve to say nothing
untill you have donne. Answer was made him by our Genttl when wee have
donne, we will give you notice. Our Gentl having done, Major Truman called one
John Shanks his interpreter & began to demand satisfaction for ye murders
donne and thereupon ye weh our Gentl withdrew themselves & after Major
