She was at this time only 10 or 12 years old. At the age of sixteen she was married to the son in the family-John Cooper. She brought with her to Virginia her Bible which is now in the possession of the Pagett family in the west, her doll which was stolen from a descendent in Ohio which was stolen some years ago; and her lace frame or loom which is said to be in possession of descenents now living in Texas.

     Col. George Eskridge QUERY: Does anyone know the names of Colonel George's parents? Information I [Sylvia Cates] have (that I [Sylvia Cates] got from my aunt) connects Col. George to the Eskridge's in Lincolnshire, England, including 'Edgar de Eskridge' who 'had a mansion in the time of Edward the First.' However, there is no 'proof' of this. The information we have says Col. George came from Lincolnshire about 1670 and located in Westmoreland County, Virginia at Sandy Point. I have a transcript of his will, but there is only mention of wife and children, no other relatives.

Apparently there are a lot of English records filed at Somerset House, London, starting from the year 1704 and continuing through 1729, regarding his landholdings. Has anyone seen these? I wonder if there is any genealogical information in them.1

Col. George Eskridge QUERY: Col George's will apparently states: 'I give unto my son Robert and his heirs all my land at the marsh in Price William County upon the condition that he pay all my debts that I now owe to any person in Whitehaven, Great Britain.' Does anyone know what this is referring to? When (if) did Col George live in Whitehaven? I am interested in finding out more about Col George before he came to Virginia and his immediate ancestors.

ANSWER: Whitehaven was a port city that was built from, basically, nothing in the mid-1600s, and is about 50 miles north by northwest of Lancaster, and is 15 miles or so due west of the Lake District. It was a major center for trade with the West Indies and American colonies and was particularly prominent in the tobacco and slave trades. I was in Whitehaven in the fall of '96 and had a chance to look through the Cumbrian Archives there and found no birth, marriage or death records of any Eskridges in or around the vicinity of Whitehaven in George's era, save for the afortementioned son Robert. I would imagine that ol' Colonel George owed money to the tobacco factors in Whitehaven who in turn for his tobacco shipped him the English goodies that Virginia planters needed to live in the accustomed style. Like most Virginia planters of his time, George was playing a losing game and was in debt.

As for poor old Robert, he met an unhappy fate. A will on record there says that he left a small estate to his wife and young daughter, after his death in the 1740s, which apparently occured at sea while he was serving as ship's doctor aboard a slave ship. Not the most lucrative, or desired work. I believe the will mentioned that he may have been killed in a fire aboard the ship.1

Col. George Eskridge There is a wealth of information about Col. George Eskridge at the Westmoreland County Courthouse/Museum in Montross, Va. I visited there a couple of years ago and talked with a very helpful curator who knew all about George and his wife, Rebecca Bonum. In fact, there are portraits of the two in the museum. Although his early life is sketchy, it is believed he was orphaned at an early age in England. It is also known he first came to Virginia as an indentured servant, won his freedom and went back to England for a short while. He then returned to Virginia and became a fabulously wealthy landowner and had four (if I recall correctly) sons. I am a direct descendant of him, through a line of descendants who moved to North Carolina, settled first in Caswell County and then to Cleveland County (Shelby). Eskridge is a fairly well-known surname in North Carolina, at least with the old-timers. There is an unconfirmed story that George had been kidnapped as a youth when he was originally brought to Virginia. Anyhow, he was in servitude when he first got here. You should also know that he was the guardian of the mother of George Washington. Hence, he's the namesake of the father of our country. I'd like to know more about the origins of the Eskridge name, although I thought it came from an old English market town called Askrigg in Yorkshire.1 GKJ-7.

Col. George Eskridge Rough River Lake is situated in Breckinridge, Hardin, and Grayson Counties of Central Kentucky. The dam is located on Rough River 89.3 miles above its juncture with the Green River, 6 miles upstream from Falls of Rough. Elizabethtown (first known as Hynes Station) was settled in 1780 and Hardinsburg (known as Hardin's Station) was settled in 1781. The farmland of Rough River was not developed until 1810, at which time George Eskridge, a Revolutionary War soldier, built a cabin and settled near the present location of the dam.1

Col. George Eskridge Notes for George W. Eskridge: From WFT Vol 1 #2687.1

Col. George Eskridge From 'Cleveland Co. Heritage' pages 218-222.1

Col. George Eskridge Col George Eskridge came from Lancaster, England. In 1670, he was seized in Wales by Press Gang, who carried him aboard a ship bound for Virginia, where he was sold to a planter as an indentured servant for 8 years. When he was freed, he returned to England to get his Law Degree and then he came back to Northern Neck of Virginia, between the Potomac and the Rappahannock Rivers. He settled in Westmoreland County, Virginia in 1696.

George was an eminent lawyer. He served 10 years in the House of Burgesses and was a member of Quoram & Kings Attorneys. His plantation of many thousands of acres (Land Grants(below) show 12, 644 acres), was called 'Sandy Point', and was located on the Potomac River.

George played an important role in the life of our first President, George Washington. George Washington's mother was named Mary Ball. Her father called her his 'Little Rose of Epping Forest'. Mary's father died when she was 3 years old. Her mother died a few years later, and in her will she named George Eskridge as the guardian of Mary. Mary spent her childhood in the Eskridge home, and later married a neighbor, Augustine Washington. The wedding took place at 'Sandy Point'. When Mary's first child was born, he was named for her much loved guardian, George.

Col George Eskridge was neighbors and friends to the Washingtons, Lees, and Carters of Virginia. He was a Vestryman of Yeocomico Episcopal Church in Virginia. He was the first Eskridge to come to America. His portrait hung for several years at Mount Vernon Plantation, but is now in the Department of Archives of the Virginia Historical Society in Richmond, Virginia. Further reference to George Eskridge is in the Eskridge drawer in the Westmoreland County Museum, Virginia.

From a story about George Washington's baptism (where he is named George after Col Eskridge)...'One of these is a certian important gentleman from 'down the river', Col George Eskridge of Sandy Points--he so belongs in the picture. He is a full-faced, dignified man, an eminent lawyer, and of high standing in the community. He long was the faithful guardian of young Mary Ball, now the wife of Augustine, and the mother of the child to be baptized. Much honor is come to him this day.'

From WFT Vol. 6 #3663:

Written and Published in the book 'Kin of my Grandchildren', by Judge Noble Littell

Colonel George Eskridge was reportedly shanghaied in his youth while walking along a wharf in England about 1670. He was brought to America and sold as an indentured servant. When his term expired, he returned to England, studied law, and came back to Virginia.

He was a member of the Virginia House of Burgesses for many of the sessions from 1704 through 1734.

George Washington was very likely named for him, Douglas S. Freeman so stated in his biography of Washington.

Mary Hewes, (the mother of Mary Balland and Mary's older half-sister, Elizabeth Johnson, who married Samuel Bonum), named Colonel Eskridge as the guardian of Mary Ball (George Washington's mother). He served in this capacity from the time Mary was 13 years old, until she married Augustine Washington (George's father). Mary Ball was reared in the home of Colonel Eskridge and her marriage to Augustine Washington took place in Colonel Eskridge's home. It was George Eskridge who held their first born, as he was christened George Washington. A highway marker near Sandy Point, Westmoreland County, Virginia attests to this fact.

Freeman commented that Colonel Eskridge was a lawyer of distinction, a land speculator of skill, and a gentleman of character. He was the father of six children by his first marriage (Rebecca Bonum). He married the second. Elizabeth Vaulx, and was the father of a 7th child.

(Col George Eskridge, of 'Sandy Point,' Westmoreland County, was long a prominent lawyer, and was a member of the House of Burgessess for Westmoreland at the sessions of October 1705, April 1706, Oct 1710, Nov 1711, Jan 1712, Oct 1712, Nov 1713, Nov 1714, April 1718, Nov 1718, Nov. 1720, May 1722, May 1723, May 1726, Feb 1727-8, May 1730, May 1732, and August 1734. He married first, Rebecca daughter of Samuel and Margaret (Philpot) Bonum of Westmoreland, and secondly Elizabeth daughter of Robert Vaulx, of the same county. All of Col Eskridge's children except his daughter Elizabeth, were of the first marriage. George Eskridge was gaurdian of Mary Ball, the mother of George Washington, from the time she was thirteen years old until she married. Portraits of Col Eskridge and one on his wives were bequeathed in 1913 by General P C Rust to the Virginia Historical Society and are now in the portrait collection of the Society.)

George died 25 NOV 1735 in Westmoreland, VA, at 80 years of age.

George the first of the line in VA Prob born in Lancashire, Eng. Most likely in Bolton le Sands Parrish However have not found birth of christening record assigned to George.

Numerous stories have been written concerning his early life, including one which stated that he had been siezed by a press gang while studying law in North Wales and spend eight years in VA as a bound servant. No documented evidence has been found except records show that George was in VA in 1690's where he proceeded to make himself the most wealthy land owners in Westmoreland Co and a Lawyer of prominence. He was a member of te VA House of Burgesses almost continuously from 1705-1735.

The Queen's Attorney for Queen Anne and the King's Attorney for King's George I and George II, Coroner for the Patomac District, Member of the VA Quorum, Tobbacco Agent for Northumberland and Westmoreland Co's, Legal Council in hundreds of Civil and Criminal court cases, Executor in dozens of Wills, and most important of all the gaurdian of Mary Ball, Future mother of George Washington.

Mary Ball's early life was plagued with deaths in the immediate family. Her mother married three times, outliving three husbands; her father, Joseph Ball, died in 1713 and her mother, Mary in 1721. After her mother's death, Mary's closest living relative in VA was her half sister, Elizabeth, who was married to Samuel Bonum III, a nephew to George Eskridge's wife, Rebecca Bonum.

In her will, Mary's mother designated George Eskridge as guardian of her thirteen year old daughter Mary. From that time until her marriage in 1731, Mary lived as part of George Eskridge's large family at Sandy Point, Westmoreland County. An article in the DAR Magazine, April 1927, titled 'The Christening of George Washington', describes how George came to be named after his mother's guardian, George Eskridge.

Section 2, Carter, Robert (1663-1732), Letterbook, 1727-1728 This section consists of two items, a letterbook and index, 13 May 1727-23 July 1728, of Robert 'King' Carter. An index prepared by the staff of the Virginia Historical Society is included. The letterbook was kept at Corotoman, Lancaster County, and Williamsburg, Virginia. Among the items are documents of George Eskridge (of Westmoreland County, Virginia, concerning the sale of slaves).
