folio 297 Henry Fetherston & Thomas Babb vs Thomas Santley
16 Mar. 1635/6
Thomas Beale of Colchester, sailor, aged 48.
Witness says that part of the “Hopewell’s” lading was to be delivered at New England and part at Virginia, but witness does not know if Thomas Santley had any lading in her. After loading in London the ship sailed for New England with the intention of going to Virginia thereafter. When she arrived at Plymouth in New England she fouled a quay and was damaged. Richard French, her master, gave her up for lost “and bade Thomas Babb, the merchant of the said ship to save what goods he could”. Witness was quartermaster on the “Hopewell”. Since all the mariners did not think she was seaworthy and capable of continuing her voyage to Virginia. Thomas Babb sent some of the passengers who were to go to Virginia in another ship, which he hired in New England. The “Hopewell” was damaged in November last past”. (1635).
“In that part of the world at that season of the year the winds blow westerly for 3 or 4 months together continually from November to February. This is a bad wind to take a ship from New England to Virginia, but a good wind to bring it back to the Downs, and those westerly winds do make the seas betwixt New England and Virginia very troublesome and tempestuous, but a ship that is strong and sufficient may perform a voyage from New England to Virginia without any great hazard or danger, but there is a great deal less danger in coming from New England to London at that time of year.

Witness says that some repairs were affected in New England, but it was decided to come home, and on the homeward voyage the ship was very leaky. The “Hopewell” arrived at New England during the latter part of October or early November last past (1635) and returned to London 3 weeks ago (end of February 1635/6).

folio 337 Same case. 4 Mar 1635/6.
John Herringman of Lymehouse, sailor, aged 24.
Witness says that there were 10 or 12 passengers to go from New England to Virginia. He was not shipped to go in the “Hopewell” until after she had taken on all her lading. He was shipped first to go to New England and then to Virginia. After the “misfortune at Plymouth, New England, the passengers, which came in her from London bound for Virginia left her after she came to Boston, which is distant about ten to twelve leagues from Plymouth. Witness was hired by Thomas Babb to go as carpenter to New England and then to Virginia”.

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 as 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!

shown). Mary lived near Pendleton in the village of Huntsville. She did not ever live in Anderson. Her residences were De Graff, OH; Huntsville, Eagle Village, Indianapolis, Traders Point area and Zionsville, IN. Her father was Darius R. Huston. Delete sentence about Victor Beck (vol. 1, near bottom of p. 18). Silver also lived in the Traders Point area.
Issue by 1st wife:
There is no issue by the 1st wife; if there was they left with the wife. So Charles Morgan (listed as child 2.) is not a son of Silver. I have recently found some old papers of my grandfather’s which reveal that “Mary Helen Huston already had Chas.” She was not married before so far as I know. This makes Chas. illegitimate and he adopted the Penrose name.

II Henry Charles Featherstone – d. by 28 Sep 1747 at Henrico co VA source: ., Henrlco co” VA’ Deed Book, 1744-1748, p. 324-son Charles sold to brother Henry 300 acres of land ‘which belonged- to their father.
That item led to this info:
Same Branch as above (3), same volume as above (4), but pages 19 and 20- page 19 shows that Henry Charles Featherstone-s son Henry was b ca 1738 d 1760 Chesterfield co.. VA, and was unmarried. It appears that the “about”‘birth year (1738) for this Henry is confusing with the “b. ca. 1738” birthdate of his nephew Henry Featherstone, top of page 20. What I have for birth years of Henry Charles Featherstone’s sons follows: (Sources: family group sheets sent me in 1987 by Elmeree Oakley )
1. Charles, b. ca. 1716 (agrees with Volume 4)
2. Henry, b. ca. 1718
Additional info on Henry
He d. 6 Apr 1760 at Chesterfield Co.. VA, the day after Randall Johnson wrote his will for him which was not signed nor witnessed. This nuncupative will [delivered orally to witnesses] was “presented by brother and next of kin Charles Featherston” to the November 1760 Chesterfield Co.. VA. Court. In it. Henry bequeathed the 300 acres of his father’s land purchased from brother Charles in 1747 to Charles- son Edward Featherston. Henry’s will also names “brother Charles, sister Mary ” and Thomas Jeffres- and Thomas Sadler’s children.” Sources: Chesterfield Co. VA, Order Book 3, page 88; Chesterfield co., VA. will Book 1, p. 360.
There is an additional record on that 300 acres of land—on 5 Sep 1775 at Chesterfield Co., VA. Henry’s brother Charles and Charles- son Henry sold the 300 acres to Edward Featherstone. Edward named in will above ——Source: Chesterfield Co.. VA. Deed Book 8, page 33.
Correction – see volume 7, page 21:

08-01. Seeking information on the descendants of Rebecca Featherston and Thomas Sadler. Their grandson, Zachariah Sadler (son of Henry) was born 1780-84 poss. Brunswick Co., VA, d. ca.

08-02. Does anyone have birth, marriage, and death dates and locations for Mrs. Elizabeth Featherston [not proven 1817-1862] who lived her married life in Waldron (Scott Co.) AR, but may have died in Arkadelphia (Clark Co.) AR.
She was second wife of William Grandison Featherston [1807-1873]. Three of her great granddaughters (ladies born about the turn of the century) say her maiden name was THOMPSON which is the middle name of her daughter (their grandmother) Harriett Thompson (Featherston) Ellington. Was it? Two of Elizabeth’s grandchildren give different maiden names for her: POPPINS AND PEEL.
08-03. I would like to find birth, marriage, and death dates and their locations for Mrs. Isabella Featherston who lived in Arkansas Counties of Crawford and Scott about 1828-1835. She was first wife of William Grandison Featherston [1807-1873]. Isabella died about 1835-1837 and may have had some family or property in Franklin Co., AR, as in 1840 her husband was appointed guardian there of their two minor children. George Washington and Robert M. Featherston.
