James Griffin III

M, b. circa 1707, d. before 20 January 1761
  • Last Edited: 21 Feb 2019
  • (Child) Birth*: circa 1707; Nansemond Co., Virginia
  • (Groom) Marriage*: say 1738; Bride=Jane (?)
  • (Deceased) Death*: before 20 January 1761; Chowan Co., North Carolina
  • Biography*: 21 February 2019; When James Griffin II died in 1749, he gave his "eldest son James Griffin ye Plantation he lives on being 200 acres ye Middle of ye Plantation I dwell on it being (page torn) by line more or less." This land was more or less between that of his brothers Joseph and William, who each got 200 acres in the will as well.

    Just after his father died, James III gave his brother John land in Perquimans County: "James Griffin of Chowan, for the natural affection I bear unto my brother John, and because my father James Griffin (II) made a deed of gift unto said John for a parcel of land in Perquimans, on the N.E. side of the Perquimans River, I do assign all the land on the North side of Plum Tree Branch to the said John Griffin where he now lives" (Perquimans Deed Bk. E, p.159).

    In November 1750 James III sold 400 acres in Perquimans to his brother William. The land had been purchased by James Griffin II in 1729, and was "at the mouth of a small branch that issueth out of the west side of the Perquimans River" (Perquimans Deed Bk. F, no.16).

    In March 1750/51, James witnessed the will of William Hill of Chowan County. It is possible that William Hill's wife was a Griffin, or that James' mother was a sister of William Hill.

    James probably died around December 1760. On January 20, 1761, his widow Jane, Timothy Walton, Esquire, and Captain William Walton were appointed administrators of his estate. The sale of his estate was in March 1762. Among the buyers were his widow Jane, Timy Walton, Henry Walton, William Walton, James Griffin, William Griffin, Elisha Hunter, William Hill, Guy Hill, Aaron Blanchard, and others.1

  • Biography*: In February 1754, Joseph Griffin sold John Evans 50 acres adjacent to James Griffin, for 40 shillings. The deed was signed by Joseph and James Griffin, and witnesses were Amos Blanchard and Amariah Blanchard (Chowan Co NC Deed Bk G-204).
    Joseph, along with James Griffin, Joseph Griffin, Jr. and John Evans, appears on a Chowan County Militia List in November 1754, with the notation "the following are Quakers:" Twenty-one Quakers were listed. A similar list in 1753 included James Griffin, Sr and James, Jr., but omitted Joseph, Jr., who must have just come of age in 1754.
    In August 1761, Joseph sold his brother James Griffin part of two tracts formerly beloging to his father James Griffin, dec'd, adjacent himself, William Hill, and William Walton, for 10 pounds. Elisha Hunter and Jacob Winslow were witnesses.
    In March 1763, Joseph, as heir to his father James Griffin, sold Henry Walton land which was part of a patent of 600 acres to William Hill, for 70 pounds. Witnesses were Robert Walton, Timothy Walton, and William Mabry (Chowan Deed Bk M-181). In 1764, Joseph was the executor of the will of his brother-in-law, John Evans. That will mentioned Amariah and Hannah Griffin, William Griffin, and John's sister, Elizabeth Evans. Micijah Hill, Amariah Griffin, and Aaron Hill were witnesses. No further record of Joseph has been found.

  • Biography*: John was not mentioned in his father's will, but James II had already given John 150 acres of land in Perquimans County in July 1740. The land was on the N.E. side of the Perquimans River, "at the mouth of a branch called Plum Tree Branch" (Perquimans Co. Deed Bk. D, #12). James Griffin II had purchased this land from Francis Smith 22 years earlier, in 1718, and John may have already been living on this land most of his adult life. John's brother, James III, acknowledged John's right to this land in April 1749, after their father's death James mentioned that this was the land "where John now lives" (Perquimans Deed Bk. E, p. 159). In October 1743, John acquired another 40 acres on the N.E. side of the Perquimans River from Elizabeth Brazier, widow of John Brazier, and her mother, Susannah Smith, widow of James Smith. The deed mentions that Susannah had gotten the land from her father, George Simmons. Susannah Smith, Elizabeth's mother, gave consent. So Susannah must have married first George Simmons, and second James Smith (Perquimans Co. Deed Bk. D, #122). In 1744, John appears on "a list of house-holders" in Perquimans Co. "as taken by John Perry."1 In January 1747, John bought another 160 acres from Joseph Winslow (Perquimans Deed Bk. E, #89). In April 1753, Pleasant Winslow, widow of Joseph Winslow, re-affirms John's right to the land, as apparently there was some dispute over it. It seems that the "upper part" of the land had originally been granted to Pleasant (Perquimans Deed Bk. F, #94).
