Featherston Findings Volume 4

Featherston Findings Volume 4

Vol. 4. Forward

Volume 4 of FEATHERSTON FINDINGS has now been completed. As you know, these volumes have been published at 2 and 3 month intervals up to this point. I am sure somewhere down the line the information will not be forthcoming in such quantities and therefore there will not be this same frequency of publishing these booklets. I am overwhelmed by the response I have had so far. It is quite apparent that Featherston researchers have felt a need for a publication such as this. Through these pages, we may share our information with each other now and have it recorded for future generations.

It is important for the continuing success of this series that you send in your miscellaneous Featherston information and your branch for inclusion in future volumes. Some of you may feel you do not have enough information to send in your branch for our Branches section. Let me encourage you to send in what you have. Perhaps there is someone else who may be able to give you just the needed data to tie you into another line, as has been done in this issue. Volume 1 contained Branches #1, *2, *3 and #4. Branch #3 has now been linked to #4. Hereafter, this Branch will be known as *3 and Branch *4 will no longer be used. It is our goal to eventually eliminate all branch numbers, except one, joining us all into one big family!

Because there is a limited number of Featherston families, ^as compared to Jones, Smith, etc.), perhaps at some time in the future there will not be enough data submitted to continue publishing lineages in the Branches section of our booklets. In the event these should become unavailable, would anyone object to having booklets published using only miscellaneous material?
Your suggestions for bettering these booklets will be greatly appreciated and your contributions are most welcome.

1. Charles (?) Featherstone m. ca. 1675? Rebecca Stratton Patram b. ca. 1637 b. ca. 1649 (see below) d. August 1782-Inventory date d. aft. 1726 In his will dated 1688 Edward Stratton, Jr. lists his “loving sister Rebecka Newman” which seems to prove that she was Rebecca Stratton. However Edward Stratton, Sr. lists only his wife, Martha (2nd wife-widow of Thomas Shippy) and his son, Edward Stratton. Jr. Rebecca is mentioned as one of the heirs of Reginald Evans (Henrico Record Book 5. p. 176-No date). At that time Anthony Patram was still living. The date of his death is not known but as Francis Patram was the only child of that marriage, it is possible that Anthony died soon after his birth in 1671. (“Francis Patram, age ca. 21 yrs. gave testimony – Aug. 1, 1692 – Valentine Papers 111. p. 1790 1692 Ct. Rec.) It has been recently proven that Charles Featherstone had four children. If Rebecca were the mother of all four, she must have been married to Charles as early as 1674/5. There has been no indication that Charles had been married before. (Proof of the four children-Colonial Wills of Henrico., VA Part 1 1654-1737 by Benjamin B. Weisiger 111 p. 109. “Rebecca Newman, wife of Samuel Newman, age 77, 18 Sept. 1725 deposed that she knew Charles Featherstone, dec’d, & that he had at the time of his death 4 children, lawfully begotten, a son Henry Charles Featherstone & 3 daughters, Anne, Sarah, & Susanna. (This proves her birthdate as about 1649).

Issue: 1. Anne Featherstone b. ca. 1674/5 m. ca. 1692 to Abraham Eurton
2. Sarah Featherstone – no other information
3. Susanna Featherstone – no further record

Although many notes have been made, the ones used here are only those which might fit the dates for Charles Featherstone who went to VA in 1653 aged about 16. It is possible that his father may have been a Henry Featherstone as he named his only son Henry Charles.

From Mrs. Ann H. Klein
This is a letter I received in answer to a request for the book “Good Morning, Mr. Featherstone?” by Eula Perkinson. This information is on page 13 of
Jan. 2, 1990
Mrs. Anne H. Klein
Dear Mrs. Klein.
In reply to your letter about our book, I’m sorry to have to tell you that we have sold all of them and we do not plan another printing. From an original printing of 500 most of them sent to Perkinson descendants. We donated a few to libraries, a few libraries and genealogical societies ordered books. We did not advertise the book so it has been fun getting in touch with many families from many states.
There was no Featherstone genealogy relating to Featherstones of the U.S. – the title refers to the Featherstones of England from whom, according to sources, the Perkinson family descended. Elias de Featherstone was the ancestor in Northumberland, England for whom Featherstone Castle was named – the family was seated there for several generations from about 1100. There were 3 brothers, descendants of Elias who had three sons. one of whom was named Perkin, Celtic for “Peter”. Perkin Featherstone had a son named John who was called John-le-Perkinson meaning “John the son of Perkin”. John adopted the name John Perkinson and dropped the name Featherstone. This is documented, ca. 1500, and on records in genealogy of that family in England.
A book titled “The Parkinson’s of Lancashire” by Richard Ainsworth gives the origin of the Perkinson family in this book which we found at the Society of Genealogists in London: Perkinson was the original spelling of the name dating from around 1300’s and gradually evolved in the Parkinson spelling. The book by Ainsworth has been out of print since 1936, we were told by a bookstore in London. We have never been able to find one from “old books” dealers.
We did visit Featherstone Castle – it is about 3 1/2 miles out of Haltwhistle. a medieval town in Northumerland Co.. England. It is beautiful on the bank of the Tyne River. The old pele tower and a certain doorway area dates back to the time of Elias de Featherstone, ca. 1100; it has been added on to down through the years and is now quite impressive. In Elias’ day it was called a “hall house”. It is near Hadrian’s wall in that part of England. In doing our Perkinson research in colonial Virginia we found a Charles Featherstone who married I believe. Anne Burton, living in that part of Henrico Co., VA, 1700’s, in which our oldest ancestors (Perkinsons) lived. I suspect many of the present day Featherstones descend from Charles.
Thanks for getting in touch and sorry I’m not of much help to you.
Sincerely yours,
Eula Thomas Perkinson
Note: Thank you Ann for sharing this letter with us.(JFH)

The BRANCHES section of FEATHERSTON FINDINGS presents an opportunity for all of those interested in our heritage to record our direct descent. These BRANCHES are not confined to the spelling of Featherston, but may also include Featherstone, Featherstun, etc. If you have not yet sent in your BRANCH, please do so as soon as possible. I encourage you to take advantage of this FREE SERVICE.
These BRANCHES will be published in the order in which they are received or at my discretion. Every effort will be made to transcribe material exactly 33 it Is submitted. However, if errors occur in this transcription process, please let me know, so I can make corrections in a future volume. If, while typing your lineage for publication, there is a doubt as to the spelling of your surname, the spelling of Featherston will be used. These BRANCHES may be added to or corrected in future volumes. Therefore, it is not necessary to wait until you have completed your research before submitting your lineage for publication. Although we all may have best intentions of permanently recording our findings, too often the family historian passes away or becomes too ill to continue research work and those years of research are lost forever.
By publishing your BRANCH and research material in FEATHERSTON FINDINGS you not only protect your family information, but help future researchers find their elusive family heritage.
You may submit your lineage in the form found in this section or you may submit the information on Family Group Sheets. It is not so important how you submit your lineage, but that you do submit it. Please cite your sources whenever possible.
If you find you are fortunate enough to connect with an established branch already in print, please let me know. The branches will be merged in a future volume, the earlier branch number will be maintained, and later number be eliminated. Perhaps we may eventually find a common ancestor and become one large family!
