     Anne Floyd in "VA Governor's Council President George Percy (1580–1632 or 1633)" @ Encyclopedia VA.org: "Some seventeenth-century pedigrees at Alnwick Castle -- featured in the Harry Potter movies as Hogwarts Castle, and in many other films -- insist that Percy married Anne Floyd or Lloyd in VA, while others include no reference to a marriage. One pedigree compiled around 1673 states categorically that Percy died a bachelor, that he 'left noe estate.' None of this can be taken at face value. Many family pedigrees from the 1670s were 'adjusted' either to refute or sustain the claim of James Percy, who, with the earldom vacant for want of a male heir, maintained that he was descended from one of the ninth Earls brothers. When the genealogist Sir Thomas Banks visited America early in the 1800s he met two brothers in VA who claimed descent from Percy. Banks pointed out that if what these men said were true, they would be 'the right male heirs of the Earldom of Northumberland of the de novo creation, the ancient one being suspended in the crown.' The claim seems never to have been pursued in ENG."

Cockacoeske "Queen Anne" Powhatan1

F, #86324, b. 1634, d. 1686
Last Edited8 Apr 2018
     Cockacoeske "Queen Anne" Powhatan married Toby "Chief Totopotomoy" West, son of Governor Thomas West Knt., 3rd Lord De La Warr and Rachel Matachanna Powhatan.1,2 Cockacoeske "Queen Anne" Powhatan was born in 1634.1
Cockacoeske "Queen Anne" Powhatan was buried in 1686 at Pamunkey Indian Reservation, King William, King William Co., Virginia, USA; from Find A Grave website:
     Birth:      1634
     Death:      1686
     Queen of the Pamunkey tribe. Daughter of Nectowance, Werowance (Chief) of the Powhatan. Granddaughter of Opechancanough Mangopeesomon Powhatan and Cleopatra Powhatan, the sister of Pocahontas, and great-granddaughter of the Great Powhatan, father of Pocahontas, and therefore grandniece of Pocahontas. Some family trees show Nectowance as a son of Opechancanough while others say nephew.
     Opechancanough and Powhatan are reportedly buried here also.
     Wikipedia gives her birth as circa 1640. Worldcat.org gives her birth as circa 1630. Wikipedia also incorrectly shows her as Opechancanou's daughter rather than granddaughter.
     Cockacoeske died before July 1, 1686, when her interpreter George Smith reported to the governor's Council that she was "lately dead."
     Queen Cockacoeske was the first signer of the Treaty of Middle River Plantation that ended Bacon’s Rebellion in 1677.
     First married to her cousin Chief Totopotomoi ("Toby West")(c.1625–1656), son of Thomas West 3rd Baron de la Warr and "Rachel" Powhatan. Rachel Powhatan afterwards had married Joseph Crowshaw and reportedly borne his daughter Unity Crowshaw who married her half-brother Toby West's first cousin, Col. John West II, son of Gov. John West.
     Totopotomoi (Toby West) ruled from 1649 to 1656. After his death, his widow Cockacoeske ruled from 1656 to 1686. Depicted as an intelligent and powerful seductress, Cockacoeske took her sister-in-law Unity Crowshaw's husband from her, Col. John West II, and bore him a son, Maj. John West (1657-1716).
     Later renderings of her likeness often show her adorned with the black pearls that were the signature jewelry of the Pamunkey tribe.
     Cockacoeske is possibly buried in the burial mound on the Pamunkey Reservation. The Pamunkey Reservation was confirmed to the Pamunkey tribe as early as 1658 by the Governor, the Council, and the General Assembly of Virginia. Cockacoeske became Queen of Pamunkey in 1656 and signed the Treaty of 1677 between the King of England, acting through the Governor of Virginia, and several Native American tribes including the Pamunkey. It is called the most important existing document describing Virginia's relationship towards Indian land.
The reservation is located about 12 miles north of the Mattaponi reservation which is near West Point, the site of the West family home.
     According to historian William Deyo, it is doubtful that Cockacoeske is buried in the so-called Burial Mound at Pamunkey Reservation where Powhatan, Opechancanough, and other important leaders are said to have been buried, but likely closer to Richmond. The remains were supposed to have been brought here from the sacred Uttamussak temple.
     Powhatan’s Mantle p.255: “Cockacoeske’s romantic liaison with the English colonel, John West, an important Virginia official, supporter of Governor Berkeley, and grandson (sic) of former Virginia governor Sir Thomas West, Lord De La Warr, may have furthered her insight into the machinations of colonial politics, and the presence of their son as a future go-between may have given her an added measure of influence.” (The correct relationship was this: Her first husband Totopotomoy/Toby West was the son of Gov. Thomas West; her second husband being Toby’s first cousin Col. John West, son of Gov. John West, the brother of Gov. Thomas and sons of Thomas West 2nd or 11th Baron de la Warr.) “The account of Cockacoeske’s appearance before the governor and council reveals that she was a person of imposing dignity and that she understood the English language. Cockacoeske’s appreciation of European goods is evidenced by her possession of ‘pieces of Lynnen, Broad cloth, and divers sorts of English goods wch the Queene had much value for’ when Nathaniel Bacon’s men raided her encampment. But there are equally strong indications that Cockacoeske remained true to her native cultural traditions.”
     The AAANativeAmericanArts.com website gives her birth and death dates much later, circa 1650-circa 1725, the most important reference being to her appearance in 1715: "The widow of Totopotomoi, the Pamunkey chief, Queen Anne became the chief of the tribe following the death of her husband during the battle in which he supported the English against other Indian warriors.
     "Due to her authoritative position, she was always called "Queen Anne" by the colonists. In 1675 she was called upon to furnish warriors to fight with the Whites during Bacon's Rebellion; this was her first appearance in colonial history. Her appearance at the colonial Council, in which she scornfully rejected the request to furnish warriors for the Whites on the grounds that her people had been neglected for the past 20 years, in spite of their friendship to the Whites, was a dramatic confrontation between Indian and White." (Strategically, appearing before the Council with her in capacity as interpreter was her son John West, the son of councilman Col. John West and in whom the other councilmen took great interest. See: Maj. John West.)
     "It was only after strong promises of better treatment by the colonists that Queen Anne agreed to provide the needed assistance. Following the end of the Rebellion, a silver headband, or coronet, inscribed Queen of Pamunkey was presented to her by King Charles II.
     "Little more is heard about her following this period, beyond an appearance in 1715, when she visited the colonial authorities to request fair treatment for her people."
     The Englishman eyewitness who recorded her appearance before the Virginia Council in 1675 described her as "Majestic."

     Tribal historian William Deyo said, Nov. 7, 2014, "Cockacoeske being the daughter of Necotowance is probably a theory, but I came up with the same theory a few years ago based on some good evidence. I do not believe that I published anything on it, however, and it is comforting to know that someone else has independently come up with the same theory. We know for a fact that Cockacoeske was the granddaughter of Opechancanough, who was the head of the federation because of the matrilineal royal succession through his mother. If Opechancanough's wife was Cleopatra, sister of Pocahontas (also of the royal line of succession), his son could succeed him as leader of the federation. Necotowance was the next in line who became the head of the federation. Totopotomoi was the next to succeed and was the husband of Cockacoeske, who succeeded in her own right after Totopotomoi (who was killed in 1656). I believe that Necotowance married a woman of the same line as Pocahontas and Cleopatra, which gave his daughter, Cockacoeske, the right of succession after her husband."
     Cockacoeske's daughter Susannah West married Cornelius Dabney, the interpreter and produced several of his children, including Patrick Henry's grandmother Mary Winston, who was also Dolley Madison's great-grandmother. Among Cornelius Dabney's other descendants, besides Patrick Henry, the orator and Governor of Virginia, and Dolley Madison, wife of President James Madison, were Dabney Carr (1743-1773), Virginia burgess and brother-in-law of President Thomas Jefferson; Lady Nancy Astor, first woman to sit in the British House of Commons; President Zachary Taylor and his daughter Sarah Knox Taylor, the first wife of President Jefferson Davis of the Confederacy; Confederate Gen. J.E.B. Stuart; Gen. Edmund Pendleton Gaines; Col. George Strother Gaines; and numerous other notable Southern families.

     He was the son of Col. John West II and grandson of Governor John West of Virginia. He was great-grandson and grand-nephew respectively of the second and third Lord De la Warr. Col. John West II is said to have left his wife Unity Crowshaw for Cockacoeske, Queen of Pamunkey, a niece of Pocahontas, and had by her a son John described as "a stripling twenty years of age" when he accompanied his mother who spoke before a committee of burgesses and governor's Council members in Jamestown in the summer of 1677. He signed the Virginia-Indian Treaty of 1677/1680, after his mother did, as "Cap't John West, sonne to the Queen of Pamunkey."
     Cockacoeske was previously the wife of Col. West's first cousin, Totopotomoi (Toby West) who died in 1656, the son of Thomas West, third Lord de la Warr, and "Rachel" Powhattan. Toby West and Cockacoeske had a daughter who married Thomas Harrison. Mrs. Harrison's half-brother Maj. John West provided for several of Mrs. Harrison's granddaughters in his will.
     At the death of Cockacoeske in 1686, the English had hoped her half-English son John West would succeed her as king of the Pamunkey and thus help further their mutual goals, but the leadership, by tranditional Pamunkey succession, passed to Cockacoeske's niece Queen Betty.
     "Narratives of the Insurrections, 1575-90" by Charles M. Andrews, quotes Thomas Mathew's account of the visit of Pamunkey Queen Cockacoeske to the council with "her Son to whom the English tongue was familiar, and who was reputed the Son of an English Colonel." (page 26).
     Page 25 footnote says: "Pamunkey seems to have designated the triangular section of country formed by the two main branches of the York River, with West Point at the apex. The Pamunkey tribes, however, occupied parts of New Kent County also. The queen represented the chiefs of the Powhatan group of Indians, her husband Tottopottomoy (Tatapanoi) having been killed in 1656. She had a son, John West, from whom came the name of the locality West Point."
     Maj. John West who died in Stafford Co. in 1716 left land at Pamunkey and West Point in his will. The 500-acre tract he owned on the Pamunkey River was originally owned by his grandfather, Gov. John West, which appears to prove that he was the John West who was the son of the Pamunkey Queen.
     William Deyo, official Pamunkey tribal historian, wrote, "The more that I search, the more that I find items in support of Leonard's (West's) theory (that Joseph West was a son of Cockacoeske and half brother of Maj. John West). Note that Joseph West was at one time a resident of Stafford Co., VA, and was associated with Maj. John West, formerly "Capt. John West" who appeared in Stafford by 1678 and was, I am convinced by overwhelming evidence, the same Capt. John West who was the illegitimate son of Cockacoeske, Queen of Pamunkey, by John West, son of Gov. John West (brother of Thomas West, Lord De la Warr)." (Dec. 6, 1998.)
     James Bish wrote: Major John West (1657-1716) rose to the rank of Major in the county militia for the defense of the frontier primarily against an Indian threat. Most likely was buried at the "West Grove" site south of Great Hunting Creek. Major John West had at least three sons, 1, John West Sr., who was the father of Burgess Hugh West, John West [died with no children], William West, and Thomas West; 2. Pearson West [died with no children] and 3. Burgess Col. John West., father of Roger West.
     Highlights for Major John West include:
     1686-1715 He purchased and obtained Northern Neck land grants amounting to over 2000 acres in present day Fairfax County and Alexandria Virginia living at his plantation "West Grove" rising over Great Hunting Creek and the Potomac River. Not only did he build a substantial home, but he built boundary fences, a tobacco landing onto the Potomac River, which became a primary landing for the region, and also improved his plantation by planting fruit orchards.
     1689 - involved with Rev. John Waugh and Burr Harrison in incident known as John Waugh's Tumult.
     1692 - selected as a Stafford Justice and designated the Secretary for the Stafford County Court.
     1692 - paid by the Stafford County Court for entertaining the English and the Indians.
     1701 - Virginia's Governor Colonel Francis Nicholson appointed John West, along with George Mason, Robert Alexander, and John Washington among a few others as Commissioner for the Peace in Stafford County.
     1703 - John West and his son, John Jr. were among twenty-two Stafford County leaders that signed a Memorial to Her Majesty, Queen Anne, in regard to the death of King William.
     1703 - John West was selected as a field officer at the rank of Major for Stafford County serving with Colonel George Mason, and Lt. Colonel Rice Hooe.
     1715 - John West died and not only left land but also left a legacy of public service for his descendants. Three of his descendants served in the House of Burgesses in Williamsburg almost continuously between 1752 and 1776 from Fairfax County. This represents twenty-five years of political service during the most critical years leading up to the American Revolution. No Fairfax County family had more influence in terms of length of service during that Pre-Revolutionary era. During and after the Revolutionary War, three other descendants served as Delegates in the new capital of Richmond.
     Maj. John West first married Susannah/Sarah Pearson by 1686.
     Some erroneous family trees show his wife (and mother of John West the Elder) as Sarah/Susannah Harrison, sister of Thomas and Col. Burr Harrison. Some others say he married Elizabeth Rose and had 4 children who moved to Chowan Co., N.C. One John West will filed in Chowan County, N.C., in 1713 named his wife Elizabeth Rose, and Elizabeth Rose (not West) signed as executrix. Another record in Chowan County refers to him as Indian John West. This is repeated in Shawnee Heritage by Don Greene.
     Whether the second and third marriages are correctly ascribed to the same man or whether Maj. John West has been confused with another John West, it is certain that Maj. John West did not die in 1713 but in 1717 and his last lawful marriage was to Mrs. Elizabeth Semmes Turley, widow of John Turley; she was his lawful widow and later became the wife of Charles Broadwater.
Maj. John West and Sarah Pearson had a son John West (c1681/6-1717) who married 1st unknown (some say Sybil), and married 2nd (1702-04) Ann (Harris) Owsley, widow of Thomas Owsley. Some researchers call this John West (c1681/6) John West the Elder. He had a son Hugh West who married Sybil Harrison and had Captain John West "Jr." born ca. 1727 making him 21 or 22 years of age when he surveyed the new town of Alexandria, VA in 1749.
     Maj. John West and Mrs. Elizabeth Semmes Turley married c1710 (by 1715) and their only son was born, called John West "the Younger" b. c1710 who served almost 20 years in the House of Burgesses.

     "Hugh West and the West Family's Momentous Role in Founding and Developing Alexandria and Fairfax and Loudoun Counties, Virginia," by James Bish, The Alexandria Chronicle, Spring 2010, pp. 1-26.
     Some researchers confuse Maj. John West (1657-1717) with his half-brother John West III (1676?-1734), son of Col. John West II and Unity/Ursula Crowshaw -- perhaps because these two half-brothers also are sometimes called "the Younger" and "the Elder" by different researchers.
     "John West III (1676¡V1734), son of Col. John West II, was a justice and sheriff of King and Queen County and a House of Burgesses representative for King William County.
"John West III lived at 'West Point', the seat established in Virginia by his grandfather, Governor John West. In 1692, he was appointed justice in King and Queen County and also as a sheriff of the county. He represented the newly formed County of King William in the House of Burgesses from 1702 to 1706 and was also a justice of the peace.
     "On October 15, 1698, in Elizabeth City County, he married Judith Armistead, the daughter of Captain Anthony Armistead. They had the following children:
     (1) Major Charles West, who inherited the 'West Point' estate of some 4,000 acres (16 km2). Charles died unmarried and without issue. His will dated 1734 bequeathed 'West Point' to his first cousin Thomas West, the son of his uncle, Captain Thomas West. He served in the 3rd Virginia Regiment with the rank of major from February 1, 1777 to July 6, 1778.
     (2) Luranna West, married William Pace."
Some family trees show as many as six more children.
     Maj. John West, son of Col. John West II and Cockacoeske, and half-brother of the elder John West III above, was also called Capt. John West and Indian John West. Like the elder John West III, he was a large landowner.
     In his will, he bequeathed 500 acres "at Pamunky" to his son John West (IV) after Elizabeth Turley's death. This is believed to be the original 500 acres of land for which his father Col. John West II's first cousin Col. "Toby West" (Totopotomoi) had a patent. (Toby West was the son of Gov. John West's brother Thomas West, lord Delaware, and "Rachel" Powhattan.) The Toby West tract was later taken up by Col. Joseph Crowshaw when the Indians were dispossessed, and as his daughter Unity/Ursula Crowshaw married Col. John West II, the latter passed it to his son by Cockacoeske who was Totopotomoi's widow also.

Toby "Chief Totopotomoy" West1

     Toby "Chief Totopotomoy" West married Cockacoeske "Queen Anne" Powhatan.3,1 Toby "Chief Totopotomoy" West was born in 1616 at East Sussex, England.1
Toby "Chief Totopotomoy" West died on 1 January 1656 at Battle of Bloody Run, Richmond, Richmond City, Virginia, USA.1
Toby "Chief Totopotomoy" West was buried after 1 January 1656 at Pamunkey Indian Reservation, King William, King William Co., Virginia, USA; from Find A Grave website:
     Birth:      1616, East Sussex, England
     Death:      Jan. 1, 1656, Richmond, Richmond City, Virginia, USA
     Known as Thomas West or Toby West to the English, and Totopotomoy (also Totopomoi) to the Powhatan and Pamunkey Indians, pronounced "To-Pot-omy."
     The Chief of the Pamunkey tribe, he gave his life in the Battle of Bloody Run, helping the English Colonists.
     He was the son of Thomas West, third Baron de la Warr, and "Rachel" Powhatan. Some researchers refer to Toby West as nephew of Pocahontas while other family trees show his mother as a first cousin of Pocahontas. Some say Rachel's father was the brother of Chief Powhatan while others show Rachel's mother as a sister of Powhatan. It is possible, however, perhaps even likely, that she was a double first cousin of Pocahontas. Toby West married his cousin Cockacoeske, the granddaughter of Pocahontas' sister Cleopatra Powhatan. After his death, Capt. John West, the son of Toby's first cousin Gov. John West II, took Cockacoeske as his "Indian wife" or mistress.
     Rachel Powhatan accompanied Pocahontas to England where Toby West was conceived and, by some accounts, born. Pocahontas and her entourage resided at Lord de la Warr's country estate, Blackhurst Park, in Sussex while in England. Rachel married or took up with Col. Joseph Croshaw from Virginia either while in England or after her return to Virginia. He was the son of Capt. Raleigh Croshaw, one of the founders of Jamestown, but was in Bermuda and also England (ref., Shawnee Heritage by Don Greene; also Monteith Family and the Potomac Indians by William Deyo).
     Two infant baptisms recorded in England for Thomas West, son of Thomas West, one Catholic, one Protestant:
      Christening Date: 16 Feb 1616
      Christening Place: Rodmell, Sussex, England
      Baptism Date: 20 Apr 1616
      Baptism Place: Bath, St Michael, Somerset, England
     Toby West patented 500 acres in Gloucester County on 27 May 1654, the same day that Capt. John West, Esqr, patented 1000 acres in Gloucester Co. (Cavaliers and Pioneers, Abstracts of Virginia Land Patents and Grants, by Nell Nugent, p. 232).
     Tototomoi became Chief of the Pamunkey and married his cousin Cockacoeske, grand-niece of Pocahontas. He supported the English Colonists, serving with Colonel Edward Hill in the bloodiest battle known to have been fought between Native Americans on Virginia soil, the war between the Siouan and Algonquian tribes, and was slain at the first Battle of Bloody Run on January 1, 1656.
     After his death, Toby West's property passed to Cockacoeske's son, Maj. John West.
     Cockacoeske later became the wife of Toby West's first cousin Capt. John West II (son of Governor John West). Capt. John West II was married to Ursula or Unity Crowshaw, daughter of Toby West's stepfather Joseph Crowshaw and Rachel Powhatan. So not only was John West the first cousin of Toby West, but Cockacoeske took her sister-in-law's husband.
     The burial site of Toby West is not proven to be on the Pamunkey reservation which was officially established as the permanent home of the Pamunkey tribe as early as 1648. But the remains of earlier leaders Opchanacanough and Powhatan were said to have been brought to the burial mound on this site for interment, according to legend, so likely Totopotomoy would be moved here as well, although he probably was buried originally on the battle field at Bloody Run where he died. The bones or mummified remains of earlier leaders were entombed at the sacred Uttamussak temple.
     Posted online by Paul Brockman, Dec. 6, 1998: "Looking for confirmation or refutation of Leonard West's thesis that Joseph West, of "The Joseph", Frederick (now Montgomery) County, MD, may have been son of Totopotomoi of the Pamunkey Nation (Powhatan Confederacy), and that Totopotomoi may be the Thomas or Toby West who patented land above John West of West Point and the same Thomas West who was sent to school at St. George's, Bermuda."
     William Deyo, official Tribal historian of the Pamunkey, wrote: There is overwhelming evidence that Maj. John West was the son of Cockacoeske and her second husband John West II.
     Among the descendants of Toby West and Cockacoeske were: Patrick Henry, the orator and Governor of Virginia; Dolly Madison, wife of President James Madison; Dabney Carr (1743-1773), Virginia burgess and brother-in-law of President Thomas Jefferson; Lady Nancy Astor, first woman to sit in the British House of Commons; President Zachary Taylor and his daughter Sarah Knox Taylor, the first wife of President Jefferson Davis of the Confederacy; Confederate Gen. J.E.B. Stuart; Gen. Edmund Pendleton Gaines; Col. George Strother Gaines; and numerous other notable Southern families.

Rachel Matachanna Powhatan1

F, #86327, b. 1600, d. 1646
Last Edited8 Apr 2018
     Rachel Matachanna Powhatan married Maj. Joseph Croshaw.2 Rachel Matachanna Powhatan was born in 1600 at Virginia, USA.1
Rachel Matachanna Powhatan was buried in 1646 at Pamunkey Indian Reservation, King William, King William Co., Virginia, USA; from Find A Grave website:
     Birth:      1600, Virginia, USA
     Death:      1646, Virginia, USA
     First cousin of Pocahontas.
     Her birth date is uncertain. Some say circa 1595. Widely varying theoretical dates are given in internet postings by professional and amateur researchers.
     She accompanied Pocahontas on her trip to England in 1616.
     Mother of Toby West (Chief Totopotomoy of the Pamunkey) by Thomas West, 3rd Lord de la Warr, circa 1616.
     Her Powhatan name was Matachanna. Some family trees and the book "Shawnee Heritage" by Don Green give her name as Rachel Matachanna Powhatan. Early West family historian Leonard West theorized her Christian name was Rachel Powhatan, based on the frequency of the name Rachel among the Croshaw descendants. (ref., Shawnee Heritage by Don Greene; also Monteith Family and the Potomac Indians by William Deyo).
     William Deyo, official Pamunkey tribal historian, said, "Rachel Powhatan would not have been a sister of Pocahontas but a cousin (born about 1600). For Rachel to have the bloodline of the matrilineal royal succession, she had to have been a daughter or granddaughter of Powhatan's sister, whom I believe was the wife of the Great King of Patawomeck. When the King of Patawomeck called Opitchipam his brother, it was because he was actually his brother by marriage rather than his real brother, as by the words of Powhatan, himself, he only had 3 brothers by his mother (Opitchipam, Opechancanough, and Keckatough)."
     Tribal historians say she later married Col. Joseph Croshaw, burgess, and became the mother of several of his children, including possibly (as some say) Unity Croshaw who married John West II, nephew of Thomas West, Lord de la Warr, and first cousin of Toby West. (See Shawnee Heritage by Don Greene.)
     Death date is UNKNOWN, but 1646 according to several family trees on Ancestry.com (sources not shown).
     SHE IS NOT KNOWN to have been buried on the Pamunkey reservation which was officially established as the permanent home of the Pamunkey tribe as early as 1648, but since the remains of earlier Pamunkey leaders Chief Opchanacanough and the great Powhatan were indeed brought to the burial mound on this site and interred here as legend says, with the remains of other tribal leaders, and her son Totopotomoy is here as well, then it is possible Toby West's mother Rachel Croshaw could be here, too.
     DNA RESULTS: DNA results for descendants of Unity Crowshaw West show varying degrees of Native American ancestry. One descendant shows .51 percent Amerindian while another descendant shows 3 percent.

Jane Totopotomoi West1

F, #86330, b. 1650
FatherToby "Chief Totopotomoy" West1 b. 1616, d. 1 Jan 1656
MotherCockacoeske "Queen Anne" Powhatan1 b. 1634, d. 1686
Last Edited8 Apr 2018
     Jane Totopotomoi West was buried at Harrison Cemetery, Prince William Co., Virginia, USA; from Find A Grave:
     Birth:      1650
     Death:      unknown
     Born in or near the Indian village of Chopawamsic, home of the Pamunkey tribe, probably between 1650-60 She was the daughter of "Toby West", Chief Totopotomoy, and the Pamunkey Queen Cockacoeske.
     Granddaughter of Thomas West, third Baron de la Warr, by "Rachel" Powhatan, the daughter of Powhatan.
     Whether she and/or her husband Thomas Harrison were buried in the Harrison family cemetery on the Harrison family's Chopawamsic Plantation is not documented, but as they lived very near it is a strong possibility.
     Her Christian name is unknown but some researchers show her as Jane Totopotomoi, perhaps only a “placeholder name” but one as good as any. She married about 1671 Thomas Harrison (born 1647), brother of Burr Harrison, and was born circa 1648 (before 1655), the daughter of Cockacoeske and her first husband Toby West (Chief Totopotomoy).
Native American genealogy includes many fragmentary records and much supposition and theory. Tribal historian William Deyo says that “Of the three women named Seth mentioned in John West's (1716) will, one may have been a daughter of his sister or half-sister who married Thomas Harrison and the others would have been her grandchildren, OR all three could have been grandchildren.”
     John West is thought to have provided for the children and grandchildren of his half-sister Mrs. Harrison, but the relationships are not clearly set out in the documentation.
     Shawnee Heritage by Don Greene, vol. IV, p.393, gives her birth as 1641 and death after 1661.
     The daughters of Thomas Harrison and Jane Totopotomoi are thought have been:
      1. “Ann” Harrison (or Daughter 1) (circa 1668) possibly married George Short who is said to be the father of Seth/Sythia Elizabeth Short (born c1678) who married Thomas Harrison (1665-1746), son of Col. Burr Harrison (born 1637). If this is correct, Seth Short married her mother’s first cousin. Most family trees online show Seth or Sithia Elizabeth Short as a daughter of George Short and unknown first wife. One shows her (born April 1674 in Charles Co., MD., d.13 Aug 1746 Stafford Co., VA.) as a daughter of George Short (1649-1718 St. Mary's, MD) and wife Martha Ann Barnes (1650-1718), daughter of Henry Barnes and Suzanna.
     4 Mar 1719: Short, George, planter, Charles Co., 17th Oct. 1718; 4th Mar., 1719. To wife Anne, extx., dwelling plantation, -----, and personal estate during life, at her decease to be divided bet. son Daniel and dau. Eliza: Dent. son Daniel and hrs., 60 A., Smith's Purchase"; he dying without issue) to dau. Elizabeth Dent and hrs. son George and dau. Elizabeth Dent, 50 A., "Simpson's Supply"' during their lives, after their decease to grand son George Short and hrs. Shd. he die without issue., to dau. Elizabeth afsd., absolutely. Test: John Bucknam, John Cadell, Susanah Bucknam. 15. 315.
     Elizabeth Short Dent, half-sister of Seth/Sythia Elizabeth Short Harrison, was the wife of George Dent who d. 1750 St. Mary's, MD. Their son George Jr. married Elizabeth Harrison (Burrell, some say) and died 1757 Fairfax, VA., and John Summers appraised his estate. Elizabeth Harrison Dent was said to be the daughter of Richard Harrison, son of Joseph (and wife Verlinda Stone, 3rd-great-granddaughter of Joseph Crowshaw), son of Richard, son of Joseph, son of Cuthbert Harrison and Susannah Burr.
      2. Seth Harrison born circa 1670 (by 1671) who married Jacob Anderson, the son of David Anderson and wife Elizabeth, the widow of John Hallowes who had owned Burr Harrison’s indenture. Their daughter was Seth Anderson who married Dr. Richard Bryant.
      3. Margaret Harrison (circa 1672) who married Moses Linton and had a daughter Seth Linton who married Moses Quarles.
      4. Daughter 4 (born circa 1676, died by 1716) married Robert Blake and had (1) Seth Blake (born circa 1695) who married first Henry Lucas and second John Summers; (2) Benjamin Blake; and (3) John Blake.
     Tribal historian Bill Deyo generously provided most of the information and theories in this sketch and developed this outline of the daughters of Thomas Harrison and Cockacoeske's daughter. Bill Deyo's ancestor was Seth Anderson (#2 above) as well as Susannah West Dabney, the daughter of Cockacoeske and her interpreter Cornelius Dabney, and a sister of "Jane" West Harrison. Some family trees suggest Susannah could be much younger and a daughter of her sister Mrs. Harrison, but most references agree she was Cockacoeske's daughter. Shawnee Heritage IV by Don Greene, vol. IV, p.396, shows Susannah as born c1653, and married first 1666 Cornelius Dabney and c1669 David Anderson (see #2 above). If she was born as early as 1653 or 1649 (as some suggest) she had to be the daughter of Cockacoeske, not granddaughter.
     Descendants of Cornelius Dabney and Susannah West include William Deyo, official tribal historian of the Pamunkey; Patrick Henry (the orator and Governor of Virginia), Dabney Carr (brother-in-law of President Thomas Jefferson), Nancy Astor (first woman to sit in the British House of Commons), Zachary Taylor (President of the United States), and his daughter Sarah Knox Taylor, the first wife of President Jefferson Davis of the Confederacy.

Thomas Harrison1

M, #86331, b. 1647, d. 1716
Last Edited8 Apr 2018
     Thomas Harrison married Jane Totopotomoi West, daughter of Toby "Chief Totopotomoy" West and Cockacoeske "Queen Anne" Powhatan.1 Thomas Harrison was born in 1647 at North Yorkshire, England.1
Thomas Harrison was buried in 1716 at Harrison Cemetery, Prince William Co., Virginia, USA; from Find A Grave:
     Birth:      1647, North Yorkshire, England
     Death:      1716, Stafford County, Virginia, USA
     Baptised 20 Oct 1647 at St. Margaret's Church, Westminster Abbey, London, England.
     Died before 1716.
     Possibly buried in the Harrison family cemetery at Chopawamsic near his place of residence located near the Harrison family's Chopawamsic Plantation.
     Sometimes called "Capt. Thomas Harrison," though possibly confused with his nephew Capt. Thomas Harrison (1665- ), the son of his brother Burr Harrison.
     Thomas Harrison and his elder brother Burr Harrison were sons of Cuthbert and Susannah Harrison who came from England to then Stafford County, Virginia (now Prince George County) and settled on the north side of Chopawamsic Creek.
     Thomas Harrison's wife was three-quarters Native American, being the daughter of Cockacoeske, Queen of the Pamunkey, and Chief Totopotomoy (also called Toby West) who was the son of Lord de la Warr and Rachel Powhatan.
     "The First Harrisons to come to Virginia, according to the best information obtainable, were Cuthbert Harrison, Esq., of Ancaster, Caxtn and Flaxby, Yorkshire, England, and his son, Burr, II, who according to the reister of Dettingen Parish, Prince William County, Virginia, was baptised in the Parish of St. Margaretts, Westminster, England, on the twenth-eight of December, 1637, and on this register he is spoken of as "Burr Harrison of Chappawmsic". . . son of Cuthbert Harrison." when Cuthbert Harrison, Ind his son, Burr, II, first came to Virginia is unknown.
     Cuthbert Harrison I, with his son, Burr II, settled in then Stafford County, Virginia, on the northern side of the Chappawamsic Creek near Dumfries and there today lies the old estate called "Cahappawamsic," with its quaint old grave yard, where once lived and now rest, so far as known, the first Harrisons of our line who came to America. Old deeds in Prince William and Stafford Counties show that in the latter part of the seventeenth century large tracts of land on the Chappawamsic Creek were granted to Burr Harrison, II.
     The site of this estate is easily accessible from Washington. A ride of about an hour over the Southern Railroad brings one to Quantico and from Quantico to Chappawamsic Creek is only about one mile. Crossing the creek you turn inland and a ride of a few miles will bring you to a quaint old grave yard where now rest the earthly remains of the first Harrisons of Virginia."
     WIFE OF THOMAS HARRISON - Born in or near the Indian village of Chopawamsic, home of the Pamunkey tribe. She was the daughter of Toby West, Chief Totopotomoy, and the Pamunkey Queen Cockacoeske.
     Her Christian name is unknown but some researchers show her as Jane Totopotomoi, perhaps only a “placeholder name” but one as good as any.

Historian William Deyo says that “Of the three women named Seth mentioned in John West's (1716) will, one may have been a daughter of his sister/or half-sister who married Thomas Harrison and the others would have been her grandchildren, OR all three could have been grandchildren.”
The daughters of William Harrison and Jane Totopotomoi are thought have been:
      1. “Ann” Harrison (or Daughter 1) (circa 1668) possibly married (George?) Short who is said to be the father of Seth/Sythia Elizabeth Short (born c1678) who married Thomas Harrison (1665-1746), son of Col. Burr Harrison (born 1637). If this is correct, Seth Short married her mother’s first cousin.

      3. Margaret Harrison (circa 1672) who married Moses Linton and had a daughter Seth Linton who married Moses Quarles.
      4.?Susannah Harrison (circa 1674)
(possibly confused with her aunt Susannah West who married Cornelius Dabney, official interpreter to Cockacoeske, as his second or third wife)
      5. Daughter 5 (circa 1676) married Robert Blake and had Seth Blake (born circa 1695) who married first Henry Lucas and second John Summers.
