Richard Kenner III From Ron Kinner Melbourne Beach FL 32951: Richard Kenner and Elizabeth Winder had four children that I know of: Winder, Richard, Rodham, Elizabeth, and Frances. Winder m. Elizabeth Brereton ( I'm thinking she was a Brereton anyway since they had Brereton, Richard, Winder, and Mary) , Richard m. his cousin Hannah Kenner dau. of Matthew per her father's will, Frances m. Ewell (or Yowell). Nothing on the other two except they were mentioned in Daddy's will (of 1718 - not 1725 as many people will have it - That one was a son of Rodham.) so I suppose they may have died young. All children were under 21 when the will was written. Supposedly Richard and Hannah had a son Rodham who had an 1801/2 will in Northumberland Co, VA. I believe this is my line as well as the line of the William Kenner who founded the LA branch of the family but have no real proof of this 1801/2 Rodham being the son of Richard and Hannah. All I have is a claim from the Brent family (descendants of William) in an old SAR book that this is so. Has anybody seen any original records or transcripts/abstracts of same which would prove or disprove this connection? Also interested in any other descendants of this Eliz. Winder line since I have another family I'm trying to connect up. There were two brother Winder and Rodham born in Old Salem (now Marshall) VA supposedly sons of Rodham Kenner and Jemimah Barker (wrongly transcribed as Jenny Burke in some records). Winder moved to Front Royal VA and Rodham went to MO. From the name Winder it would appear that this is probably the same line but no connection yet.1 He was baptized in the LDS church on 27 September 1932.1 He received his endowment on 13 February 1933.1 He was sealed as a child to , son of Capt. Richard Kenner Jr. and Elizabeth Rodham, on 12 December 1962.1

Capt. Richard Kenner Jr. Posted by Jack Kinner on April 01, 1999 at 17:47:54: The Kenner/Kinner/all spellings originated in the Pictish race who arrived in Scotland from northwest France in the 15th century B.C. It is one of the oldest recognized as the founders of the British Isle. The name began to appear in writings such as the Chronicles of the Pics and Scots, the Exchequer Rolls of Scotland (1264-1513),The Ragman Rolls (1291-1296), the Black Book of the Exchequer,in Fifeshire well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William of Hastings in 1066 A.D. The name emerged as a Scotish Clan and appeared as MacEnnor,MacEnnir, and MacEnnire as well as other spellings for nearly two centuries.Scribes and Churches usually selected their own spelling based on what they thought it should be. During the 16th and 17th centuries Scotland was ravaged by religous conflict. Many Scots fled and dropped the Mac in favor of a less hostile spelling.Thus Kennor/Kenner/Kinner/Kinnear/etc. Richard Kenner/Elizabeth Rodham (Rodden,Rodein,Roden etc.) connection through William Kennor, is thought to be from the MacEnnor Clan of Fifeshire.

Elizabeth Rodham Elizabeth's son Francis, in his 1725 will, calls George Tuberville 'brother-in-law'. Since George Tuberville's three wives are known and none of them was a 'Kenner', and since George was named 'sole heir' in the 1728 will of his father John Tuberville, George must have been half-brother to Francis Kenner. The terms were interchangeable in the 18th century. Thus Elizabeth Rodham Kenner married John Tuberville as her second husband, and they had one child together, George.1 GKJ-8.

Capt. Francis Kenner CODICIL.1

Capt. Francis Kenner Be it known unto all men by these present that whereas I Francis Kenner of St. Stephens Parish in the county of northumberland and collony of Virginia Gent: have make and declared by the above writing my last will and testament herein date the 21st day of April 1725 in which said will I have bequeathed unto my son Rodham Kenner several slaves and several other legasies of good value as by the said will may appear and where, as as also by my said will I have divised unto my son Howson Kenner and my daughter Elizabeth Kenner several legasies as by my said will may also appear NOW if my said son Rodham Kenner should at any time or times here after molest, sue, trouble, Implead or Defiesed under any coulour or poach as heir at law or other way as to either or any lands or Negroes nominated or mentioned in my said will to be given to my before named Howson Kenner or my daughter Elizabeth Kenner by any way means prevety or procurement whatsoever and I do hereby order and determine that all and a singular of the legasies in my said will which I have bequeathed unto my said son Rodham Kenner or is any ways made in his favour shall after revert and become the estate or estates property and properties of my said son Howson Kenner and my daughter Elizabeth Kenner and their heirs and assignes forever to be Equally divided between then and my said son Howason Kenner (in case aforsaid) to pay unto my said son Rodham Kenner one shilling current money if demanded and my will and desire is that this codicil be faithfully -- as fully in every respect as if the same were to declared mentioned and set down in my last will and testament in testimony where of I do here unto set my hand and affix my seale this 23rd day of April Anno Domini 1725.1

Capt. Francis Kenner Francis and Hannah (Howson) Kenner lived at Cherry Point in Northumberland Co., VA near where the Potomic River flows into the Chesapeake Bay. Francis, as were so many of the plantation owners of that period and area, was a tobacco farmer.1

Capt. Francis Kenner Now the question is....why did Francis Kenner think that his son Rodham would interfere with the legacies to his other son, Howson, and daughter, Elizabeth? I think this is boilerplate that the lawyer put in because Rodham was the oldest son and thus under the old law of primogeniture could have made a claim for all of it. I've seen very similar language in other wills. Is this Rodham Kenner the same that married Judith Beverly? And was he a preacher? Yes to both. He was educated in England. There is a newspaper notice of his return from England by way of Port Royal. (don't have the date handy) Their son George had a son Rodham who m Helen Landrum but had no issue and a daughter Judith who married your Howson's son Rodham who was also a preacher. Rodham and Judith had son Lawrence and daughters Lucy and Judith. After Rodham's death they all moved to Hawkins Co. TN.1 GKJ-7.

Capt. Francis Kenner As mentioned in the will Francis Kenner had three children. Rodham who later became Rev. Rodham, born September 28, 1707 and died about 1735 in Caroline county Virginia and married Judith Beverly, daughter of Harry Beverly. After Rev. Rodham Kenner died, Dorothy Roy, mother of Thomal Roy, a man that did not have much success in business adventure, engeneered a marriage to Judith Beverly Kenner, who through her inheritance from the Beverly's was one of the richest wonen in the county.1

Capt. Francis Kenner This time Thomas justified his mother's faith because he not only succeeded in gaining control of all of Judith's property, but also embezzeled trust funds belonging to her young son by the Rev. Kenner, without getting caught. Her son's name was George, and to save his inheiritance from Thomas and Dorothy Roy, the court transferred custody of George's property from his mother to his uncle, Howson Kenner. George Kenner died a rich man in 1772, and his widow, Margaret, promptly remarried. Her new spouse was John Dugard, an adventurer, who only recently had moved to Caroline from Baltimore. This marriage displeased her son, Rodham Kenner, II, a sporting youth much given to betting and drink, and when the newly wed pair cut down on his allowance for dissipation, he took a trip to Baltimore to see what dirt he might dig up on his step-father. He dug up plenty. Dugard already had a wife in Maryland when he married Margaret Kenner in Carolina. Yound Rodham got affidavits to prove this from the Rev. Thomas Chase, rector of St. Paul's Parich, Baltimore, and the Governor of Maryland and returned home with these documents. The Caroline court speedily convicted Dugard for bigamy. But, Dugard refused to accept this conviction and employed Patrick Henry to appeal his case in the general court of the colony of Williamsburg. Henery was successful in the appeal and Dugard returned to Caroline a free man. But, he refused to pay Henry his fee, and Henry who was a close collector, turned on him in his wrath and saved the Kenner fortune for Rodham,II. Rodham Kenner,II, later distinguished himself as a naval officer aboard the PROCTOR and the DRAGON during the Revolutionary War.1

Capt. Francis Kenner G326, p253 & p258 b: per Wm & Mary Qtly, 1909-1910, vol 18, pg131 ww 21 Apr 1725, wp 23 Apr 1725 mentions brother Mathew and his son Francis brother-in-law, Capt George TURBERVILE Francis' brother, Rodham, mentioned in his probated will, 21 Aug 1706, that his brother Francis was a Capt. b: per 'Genealogies of Virginia Families, Vol III, He->M', [Wm & Mary Qtly], p256. This data is from Virginia Cottrell * 2013 Cherry Lane * Durant, OK 74701-8923, 15 June 1994: Francis Kenner is listed in records with two different birthdates. One, 27 Dec 1677, which is the birth date given as his brother John, so they may be twins. The other date is 18 Dec 1681. His sister Elizabeth is shown to be born 19 Mar 1682 or 18 Dec 1681, so it appears Frances was a twin to either John or Elizabeth. It is known that twins are found several times in later family lines. (Most Kennner descendants are using the 1681 date as his birthdate.) Francis' will was pro. 18 Apr 1728 in Northumberland Co. VA. He married Hannah Howson, daughter of Leonard & Elizabeth 'Lee' Howson.1

Capt. Francis Kenner The statement appears on print that Capt. Francis Kenner married Elizabeth Turberville, but it is doubtful that a woman of that name and generation existed. John Turberville seems to have had but one child, George, and George seems to have been half-brother to Francis, rather than a brother-in-law inn the modern sense. (See notes for Francis' mother, Elizabeth Rodham).1

     Rev. Rodham Kenner and an unknown person were divorced; N.1 He was born on 28 September 1707 at Cherry Pt., Northern Neck, Northumberland Co., Virginia, USA.1 He married an unknown person between 1 June 1729 and 1730 at Spotsylvania, or Louise, Virginia, USA.1
Rev. Rodham Kenner died circa April 1735 at Caroline Co., Virginia, USA.1
     Rev. Rodham Kenner As mentioned in the will Francis Kenner had three children. Rodham who later became Fev. Rodham, born September 28, 1707 and died about 1735 in Caroline county Virginia and married Judith Beverly, daughter of Harry Beverly. After Rev. Rodham Kenner died, Dorothy Roy, mother of Thomal Roy, a man that did not have much success in business adventure, engeneered a marriage to Judith Beverly Kenner, who through her inheritance from the Beverly's was one of the richest wonen in the county.1

Rev. Rodham Kenner Rodham died approx 26 years of age.1

Rev. Rodham Kenner This time Thomas justified his mother's faith because he not only succeeded in gaining control of all of Judith's property, but also embezzeled trust funds belonging to her young son by the Rev. Kenner, without getting caught. Her son's name was George, and to save his inheiritance from Thomas and Dorothy Roy, the court transferred custody of George's property from his mother to his uncle, Howson Kenner. George Kenner died a rich man in 1772, and his widow, Margaret, promptly remarried. Her new spouse was John Dugard, an adventurer, who only recently had moved to Caroline from Baltimore. This marriage displeased her son, Rodham Kenner, II, a sporting youth much given to betting and drink, and when the newly wed pair cut down on his allowance for dissipation, he took a trip to Baltimore to see what dirt he might dig up on his step-father. He dug up plenty. Dugard already had a wife in Maryland when he married Margaret Kenner in Carolina. Yound Rodham got affidavits to prove this from the Rev. Thomas Chase, rector of St. Paul's Parich, Baltimore, and the Governor of Maryland and returned home with these documents. The Caroline court speedily convicted Dugard for bigamy. But, Dugard refused to accept this conviction and employed Patrick Henry to appeal his case in the general court of the colony of Williamsburg. Henery was successful in the appeal and Dugard returned to Caroline a free man. But, he refused to pay Henry his fee, and Henry who was a close collector, turned on him in his wrath and saved the Kenner fortune for Rodham,II. Rodham Kenner,II, later distinguished himself as a naval officer aboard the PROCTOR and the DRAGON during the Revolutionary War.1

Rev. Rodham Kenner However, wasn't Capt. F's son Rodham known to be, shall we say 'irresponsible'? Even the very mildly spoken text of Meade's 'Old Churches' portrays him as unable to hold any position for very long. I suppose you mean Meade's comments about him being like '...a rolling stone' and that the parishers were glad to see the last of him. Don't know that because he moved around a lot and wasn't well-liked (maybe he was a little too hard on the sinners) that he was a bad fellow. In any event, he had no need of his dad's money when a year after his dad's death he married into the very rich Beverly family. Then again, he only outlived his father by about 7 years so maybe he was a bad boy.1

Rev. Rodham Kenner Rodham was a Church of England Minister in St George's Parish, Spotsylvania Co. He married Judith Beverly in 1730. After the death of Rodham, Judith married Thomas Roy. CURRY DESCENDANTS by Judge Noble K. Littell pp24 ref#852.1

Elizabeth Kenner Eliz. Kenner orphan dau of Francis Kenner chose George Turberville as her guardian 17Jul1728. She was Howson's sister if I [Ron Kinner] remember correctly. Francis mentions him in his will as his brother-in-law and there was speculation that Francis's second wife may have been a Turberville but there is no proof. I [Ron Kinner] have also seen it stated that Eliz. Rodham Kenner married (2) a Turberville but I [Ron Kinner] think this is incorrect since I [Ron Kinner] have a citation of a will of an Eliz. Kenner which I [Ron Kinner] think is probably hers.1

That I John Row late of the County of Craven in the Province aforesaid, gentleman, being in health and perfect mind and memory, calling to mind that it is appointed for all men to die, I therefore make and ordain my last will and testament as follows: I first recommend my soul into the Hands of God who gave it me, secondly, my body for to be buried in a decent manner at the discretion of my executors and also all my just and lawful debts to be paid out of my estate and the remainder to be divided as follows, to-wit.1

This being my Last Will and Testament whereof I have to set my hand and afffixed my seal the day and date above written.1

John Roe ________________________________________________________________.1

John Roe John Roe first appears in Halifax County, August 14, 1749. On this date, Book 3, Page 368, William Reeves sold 200 acres of land to John Roe. There were no identifying streams or water courses mentioned in the deed. At this same period, there was another John Roe in nearby Lunenberg County, Virginia. On May 18, 1751, Lunenberg Deed Book 5, Page 124, John Roe and his wife, Frances sold James Tatum 100 acres which John Roe had received by patent dated July 12, 1750. On February 19, 1754, John Roe and Sarah Roe sold to Sherwood Grimsley 200 acres of land 'where Grimsley now liveth.' Book 4, Page 553. Robert Williams and Charles Daniel were witnesses. On the same date, John Moorland and Dorothy, his wife, sold John Roe (spelled Rowe) 300 acres on the West side of Little Creek, South side of Roanoke River. Book 4, Page 555. On October 7, 1776, Book 13, Page 512, John Roe sold this same land to George Morris. No wife signed the deed, and since it would have been necessary to the legal conveyance of a homeplace, it must be presumed that Sarah Roe was dead by this date. Our next record of John Roe is that found in his Will, April 20, 1778, reciting that he then lived in Camden District, South Carolina, but formerly of Craven County, of which Fairfield was later formed. This establishes, of course, that although John Roe sold out in Halifax, North Carolina, more than two years after the date of the Coleman sale, he very promptly joined them in Fairfield County. At some later date, he moved lo Pendleton District, now Anderson County, South Carolina, as shown by the following Will made twenty-four years before his death.1

John Roe John's son, Andrew, was in what later became Anderson County earlier than February 9, 1796. On that date, Book C, Page 155, Andrew sold Isaac West 200 acres on Twenty-three Mile Creek. Andrew was still alive on March 29, 1806, for on that date he sold land in the same locality to Richard Robinson, Book H, Page 307. John's son, Solomon Roe, was in the area as early as 1788, as we shall see hereafter. John's son, Benjamin, went along with the others, as shown by a deed in which he sold 69 acres of land to Abraham Duke, Book K, Page 108. Hancil Roe, the ninth son and fourteenth child of John Roe, was in the same area as early as June 25, 1792. Book B, Page 21. On that date, called 'Anselm' Roe, he purchased 150 acres from William Jackson on Twelve Mile Creek. His name regularly appears thereafter in the old Pendleton District Records (now at Anderson, South Carolina) through the year 1827. His wife's name was Mary, and she was the daughter of Thomas Watson. Deed Book L, Page 227. On November 7, 1809, Abraham Duke, Hugh Tatum, John Roe, and Nancy Roe recite themselves to be the heirs of Solomon Roe, deceased. On that date, they sold land on Rock House Fork, Eighteen Mile Creek, Seneca River. The deed recited that Solomon had acquired this land in 1788.1

John Roe 'THE FAMILY ROBERT COLEMAN FAMILY' From Virginia to Texas 1652 - 1965 By J. P. COLEMAN.1

John Roe One might wonder if the John Roe of Lunenburg Co. might be the John Roe of Pendleton Co SC while the John Roe of Halifax County might be the John Roe of Fairfield Co SC, BUT: 1) The Bible record that gives the births of the same kids that are named in the will in Pendleton (Anderson) District, is in the pocession of the family of John's daughter Elizabeth (Mrs. Robt. Coleman) of Fairfield Co SC, so the lineage of who owns the Bible shows the Roes of Fairfield are the same Roes of Anderson County and 2) the will of John probabted in Pendleton/Anderson Co has the heading 'Camden District' & reads '... 1778 ... I John Row late of the County of Craven'. Fairfield & Chester Counties were cut from Camden District & Camden District was cut from Craven County. Anderson District was cut from 96 District which was not cut from Craven County. So neither Camden nor Craven overlap either Anderson nor Pendleton Districts, at all. So the will shows John Roe of Camden (Fairfield) District is the same man as John Roe of Pendleton (Anderson) District.1

John Roe This Tatum connection makes me think we should look closely at John Roe & Frances of Lunenburg Co VA & see if we can find his parents, relatives, since our John of Halifax Co NC may be the same man or may be a cousin or son of John of Lunenburg. We should also look for where John of Lunenburg went to & what children he had to make sure he is not the same man as our John of Halifax, Fairfield, & Anderson Counties.1

John Roe In J.P. Coleman's book, he mentions there is a John Roe & wife Frances nearby in Lunenburg Co VA who sell land to a Tatum in 1751. I think J.P. means this as more of a warning not to confuse the 2 John ROEs who have different wives (Frances & Sarah) in about the same time period (1751 & 1754) but to note that later a daughter of Solomon Roe (son of John Roe of Halifax Co.) marries a Tatum in Pendleton Dist. SC where John Roe of Halifax Co. dies.1

John Roe The 1st record of John Roe is 1749 when he bought 200 acres in Halifax Co NC. In 1754, John & his wife Sarah sold that land & bought 300 acres on the west side of Little Creek in Halifax Co. Sarah died & in 1776 John sold the land & moved to Camden District (Fairfield or Chester County) SC. By the late 1780s he & his sons had moved to what became Anderson & Pickens Co. SC where he died ca. Jan. 1802.1
