     Reference:
Woods [1901:151]: "The Brown of Brown's Cove were a Hanover family. Its head, Benjamin, and his eldest son Benjamin, patented a large area of land in Louisa County, both before and after its establishment in 1742. They began to obtain grants in Albemarle also soon after its formation. From 1747 to 1760 they entered more than six thousand acres on both sides of Doyle's River. Benjamin Sr., married Sarah Dabney, who according to Dr. Charles Brown's will, was descended from the Jennings that left the enormous estate in Engalnd, which such a multitudinous posterity in this country has coveted, and which prompted Dr. Charles to cross the great sea twice in his old age. Benjamin died in 1762, leaving eleven children, Benjamin, William, Agnes, Barzillai, Banajah, Bernard, Bernis, Bezaleel, Brightberry, Elizabeth, the wife of John Price, and Lucretia, the wife of Robert Harris..."3

     Col. William Overton was born on 3 December 1638 at England.2 He married Mary Elizabeth Waters, daughter of Samuel Waters Sr. and Ann Peake, on 24 November 1670;
per Boddie [1960:127]: "... in 1670 he brought over his fiancee, Elizabeth Waters...and they were married on board the ship November 24, 1670, it having cost him fifty pounds of tobacco for her passage from England to America."

per Boddie [1960:127-8]: "William Overton's marriage to Elizabeth waters, daughter of Samuel and Ann Waters of London, is proven by the will of Ann Waters...."Igive unto my daughter Elizabeth Overton, now in Virginia, the sum of ten shillings and to my son-in-law, William Overton, her husband, ten shilings..., I give unto my son John Waters who for divers years past hath gone to Virginia...etc."1,2,4,5

     DEATH     1690 (aged 51–52), Albemarle County, Virginia, USA
     While I maintain this memorial I do have questions whether he is actually buried here. Wm. was granted 6000 acres of land on the Anna river. Next to his grant was the Harris grant of 6000 acres. The land the cemetery is on was that of the Harris family. It would make more sense that he would be buried on his own land.
     William was born in 1638 - sources are the two books ----"Winston of Virgina and Allied Families" and "William Cross of Botetourt Co., VA and His
Descendents".

Col. William Overton was mentioned in a land transaction on 23 April 1681 at Falling Creek, Hanover Co., Virginia, USA,

Col. William Overton was mentioned in a land transaction in 1690 at St. Peter's Parish, Hanover Co., Virginia, USA,

     A very good biography of Wm. Claiborne can be read in Claiborne, John H, William Claiborne Of Virginia, 1917. In that book one finds that he was born on Creyford, Kent, England, where he was christened 10 Aug 1600. He immigrated to Virginia in 1621.
     William Claiborne obtained a license in 1631 to establish a trading post on Kent Island (Maryland). He settled the island with settlers creating a Virginia Hundred and a post from which he traded furs with the Indians. Lord Baltimore, Calvert was later granted Kent Island by Charles I, and brought settlers there about 1636 . There was a skirmish between the two sides and long years of legal dispute. Claiborne lost the legal battle with the King after twenty years of claims and settled in New Kent County, Virginia. New Kent became a county under his leadership; it was named for his home county in England. He settled on a land grant of 5000 acres he had received in 1624 from the Virginia Assembly in recognition of his military service against the Indians.
His plantation was "Romancoke", where he was buried, near West Point on York River. He had acquired a total of 45,000 acres by the time of his death. (De Courcy Thom) He was the first Secretary of the Treasurer of the Virginia Colony.
     His biographer says of him "He was a clever and resourceful politician, an accomplished courtier who knew how to wear the silken glove over the iron hand; a man of powerful, magnetic and compelling personality , who bound his friends to him with hooks of steel, harrassed and exasperated his enemies with undying pertinacity, and met aggression with aggression, reprisal with reprisal. He was proud, imperious, persistant, indomitable; he loved Virginia with a burning love that still lives in the hearts of his descendants. He was the champion and defender of her territorial rights, of constitutional and personal liberty, and, finally, was essentially and altogether human."

Col. William Claibourne      There is, in the various sources, a disagreement about the ancestry of this William Claibourne, including two contemporary authors that I have generally consider reasonably authoritative on most issues of English noble heritage: Douglas Richardson and the late Leo van de Pas. While continuing to examine the issues through more research, I have decided for the present to use the "non-royal" ascent for William, which is based on the most recent research.
     William Gleason [1998] (an article republished The National Society of the Claiborne Family Descendants [NSCFD Website]), summarizes the disagreement as follows:
          "For generations, historians thought William Claiborne descended from the ancient Cliburn family, a Westmoreland, England, clan who traced their lineage to Malcolm II, the first King of Scotland. William Claiborne of Virginia reportedly used the Cliburn coat of arms on his official documents, and the Cliburn heraldic emblem is on numerous Claiborne family gravestones, especially in Virginia. But in the 1940s, a Virginia genealogical researcher dispelled Claiborne's Westmoreland lineage after determining that Claiborne was the son of Thomas Clebourne, a Kent, England, native who once served as mayor, alderman and justice of the peace in King's Lynn, a Norfolk, England, village. The researcher suspected - but never determined - a link between Thomas Clebourne and the Cliburn family of Westmoreland."
William's Royal Descent:
     Two early books, Claiborne [1917] and Spraker [1922] stated that he had a royal ancestry.
          1. Spraker [1922:531] states that "William Claibourne came to Virginia in 1621, and was of royal descent. Through the De Toneys and Cliffords, he was descended from Edward III, King of England, Duncan and Malcom, Kings of Scotland..."
          3. Claiborne [1917] lays out this heritage in detail, back to Malcom of Scotland and Ethelred II of England.
     Using a third source, Leo van de Pas' website "Genealogics" presents essentially the same ancestry for William as that laid out in Claiborne [1917], and cites Browning [1969] as his source (the 7th edition published in 1969 is apparently a reprint of the 1911 ed.)
     In all of these sources, William is stated to be the son of Edmund Cleburne/Claibourne and his wife Grace Bellingham.
The Alternative Ascent for William:
     In both of his two major works concerning the medieval English ancestry of colonial American families (Plantagenet Ancestry and Magna Carta Ancestry), Richardson calls William the "2nd son of Thomas Clayborn, of Crayford, Kent, by his wife, Sarah Smith." Richardson cites several more recent studies, including Dorman [1995].1,6,3,7,8,9,10,11,12

Col. William Claibourne      From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
     William Claiborne also, spelled Cleyburne (c. 1600 - c. 1677)[1] was an English pioneer, surveyor, and an early settler in the colonies/provinces of Virginia and Maryland and around the Chesapeake Bay. Claiborne became a wealthy planter, a trader, and a major figure in the politics of the colonies. He was a central figure in the disputes between the colonists of Virginia and the later settling of Maryland, partly because of his earlier trading post on Kent Island in the mid-way of the Chesapeake Bay, which provoked the first naval military battles in North American waters. Claiborne repeatedly attempted and failed to regain Kent Island from the Maryland Calverts, sometimes by force of arms, after its inclusion in the lands that were granted by a 1632 Royal Charter to the Calvert family (to Sir George Calvert, first Baron and Lord Baltimore, (1579-1632), by the reigning King of England, Charles I, (1600-1649, reigned 1625 to execution, 1649), thus becoming Maryland territory.
     Clayborne was an Anglican (William Claiborne was one of the signers, along with Virginia Governor John Pott, Samuel Matthews, and Roger Smyth, of a letter to King's Privy Council, dated 30 November 1629, complaining that Lord Baltimore refused to take the Oath of Allegiance and Supremacy (Oath of Allegiance) to the Church of England[2]), a Puritan sympathizer, and deeply resentful of the Calverts' Catholicism.[citation needed] He sided with Parliament, during the English Civil War, of 1642-1651 and was appointed to a commission charged with subduing and managing the, British colonies of, the Province of Virginia and Province of Maryland. He played a role in the submission of Virginia to parliamentary rule in this period. Following the restoration of the English monarchy in 1660, he retired from involvement in the politics of the Virginia colony. He died around 1677 at his plantation, "Romancoke", on Virginia's Pamunkey River. According to historian Robert Brenner, "William Claiborne may have been the most consistently influential politician in Virginia throughout the whole of the pre-Restoration period".[3]
     Early life and emigration to America
     Claiborne was born the county of Kent in England in 1600 to Thomas Clayborn, an alderman and lord mayor from King's Lynn, Norfolk, who made his living as a small-scale businessman involved in a variety of industries, including the salt and fish trades, and Sarah Smith, the daughter of a London brewer.[4] The family name was spelled alternately as Cleburn, Cleyborne, or Claiborne. William Claiborne, who was baptized in 1600, was the younger of two sons.[5] The family's business was not profitable enough to make it rich, and so Claiborne's older brother was apprenticed in London, becoming a merchant involved in hosiery and, eventually, the tobacco trade.[4]
     However, Claiborne was offered a position as a land surveyor in the new colony of Virginia, and arrived at Jamestown, on the north shore of the James River in 1621. The position carried a 200-acre (80 hectare) land grant, a salary of £30 per year, and the promise of fees paid by settlers who needed to have their land grants surveyed. His political acumen quickly made him one of the most successful Virginia colonists, and within four years of his arrival he had secured grants for 1,100 acres (445 hectares) of land and a retroactive salary of £60 a year from the Virginia Colony's council. He also managed to survive the March 1622 attacks by native/Indian Powhatans on the Virginia settlers that killed more than 300 colonists. His financial success was followed by political success, and he gained appointment as Councilor in 1624 and Secretary of State for the Colony in 1626. Around 1627, he began to trade for furs with the native Susquehannock Indians from further north on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay and two of its largest tributaries, the Potomac and Susquehanna Rivers. To facilitate this trade, Claiborne wanted to establish a trading post on Kent Island in the mid-way of the Chesapeake Bay, which he intended to make the center of a vast mercantile empire along the Atlantic Coast.[4] Claiborne found both financial and political support for the Kent Island venture from London merchants Maurice Thomson, William Cloberry, John de la Barre, and Simon Turgis.[6]
     Kent Island and the first dispute with Maryland
     Map of the Virginia colony showing its location relative to the proprietary colony, Province of Maryland controlled by Lord Baltimores of the Calvert family.
     In 1629, George Calvert, 1st Baron Baltimore, arrived in Virginia, having traveled south from Avalon, his failed colony on Newfoundland. Calvert was not welcomed by the Virginians, both because his Catholicism offended them as Protestants, and because it was no secret that Calvert desired a charter for a portion of the land that the Virginians considered their own.[7] After a brief stay, Calvert returned to England to press for just such a charter, and Claiborne, in his capacity as Secretary of State of Virginia colony, was sent to England to argue the Virginians' case.[8] This happened to be to Claiborne's private advantage, as he was also trying to complete the arrangements for the trading post on Kent Island.
     Calvert, a former high official in the government of King James I, asked the Privy Council for permission to build a colony, to be called Carolina, on land south of the Virginia settlements in area of the modern-day North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. Claiborne arrived soon afterwards and expressed the concerns of Virginia that its territorial integrity was being threatened. He was joined in his protests by a group of London merchants who planned to build a sugar colony in the same area.[9] Claiborne, still intent on his own project, received a royal trading commission through one of his London supporters in 1631, one which granted him the right to trade with the natives on all lands in the mid-Atlantic where there was not already a patent in effect.[10]
     Claiborne sailed for Kent Island on 28 May 1631 with indentured servants recruited in London and money for his trading post, likely believing Calvert's hopes defeated.[11] He was able to gain the support of the Virginia Council for his project and, as a reward for London merchant Maurice Thomson's financial support, helped Thomson and two associates get a contract from Virginia guaranteeing a monopoly on tobacco.[12] Claiborne's Kent Island settlers established a small plantation on the island and appointed a clergyman.[13] While the settlement on Kent Island was progressing, the Privy Council had proposed to Sir George Calvert, former Secretary of State for the King that he be granted a charter for lands north of the Virginia colony, in replacement for the unsuccessful settlements of his earlier colony of Avalon in Newfoundland (eastern modern Canada), in order to create pressure on the Dutch settlements further north along the Delaware and Hudson Rivers (modern states of Delaware, New Jersey and New York). Calvert accepted, though he died in 1632 before the charter could be formally signed by King Charles I, and the Royal Grant and Charter for the new colony of Maryland was instead granted to his son, Cecilius Calvert, on 20 June 1632.[14] This turn of events was unfortunate for Claiborne, since the Maryland charter included all lands on either side of the Chesapeake Bay north of the mouth of the Potomac River, a region which included Claiborne's proposed trading post on Kent Island, mid-way on the Bay. The Virginia Assembly, still in support of Claiborne and now including representatives of the Kent Island settlers, issued a series of proclamations and protests both before and after when the news of the granting of the Maryland charter reached across the ocean, claiming the lands for Virginia and protesting the charter's legality.[15]
     Claiborne's first appeal to royal authority in the dispute, which complained both that the lands in the Maryland charter were not really unsettled, as the charter claimed, and that the charter gave so much power to Calvert that it undermined the rights of the settlers, was rejected by the Lords of Foreign Plantations in July 1633.[16] The following year, the main body of Calvert's settlers arrived in the Chesapeake and established a permanent settlement on Yaocomico lands at St. Mary's City.[17] With the support of the Virginia establishment, Claiborne made clear to Calvert that his allegiance was to Virginia and royal authority, and not to the proprietary authority in Maryland.[18] Some historical reports claim that Claiborne tried to incite the natives against the Maryland colonists by telling them that the settlers at St. Mary's were actually Spanish and enemies of the English, although this claim has never been proven.[19] In 1635, a Maryland commissioner named Thomas Cornwallis swept the Chesapeake for illegal traders and captured one of Claiborne's pinnaces in the Pocomoke Sound. Claiborne tried to recover it by force, but was defeated; although he retained his settlement on Kent Island. These were the first naval battles in North American waters, on 23 April and 10 May 1635; three Virginians were killed.[20]
     During these events, Governor John Harvey of Virginia, who had never been well liked by the Virginian colonists, had followed royal orders to support the Maryland settlement and, just before the naval battles in the Chesapeake, removed Claiborne from office as Secretary of State.[21] In response, Claiborne's supporters in the Virginia Assembly expelled Harvey from the colony.[22] Two years later, an attorney for Cloberry and Company, who were concerned that the revenues they were receiving from fur trading had not recouped their original investment, arrived on Kent Island. The attorney took possession of the island and bade Claiborne return to England, where Cloberry and Company filed suit against him. The attorney then invited Maryland to take over the island by force, which it did in December 1637. By March 1638 the Maryland Assembly had declared that all of Claiborne's property within the colony now belonged to the proprietor.[23] Maryland temporarily won the legal battle for Kent Island and won again when Claiborne's final appeal was rejected by the Privy Council in April 1638.[24]
     Parliamentary Commissioner and the second dispute with Maryland
     In May 1638, fresh from his defeat over Kent Island, Claiborne received a commission from the Providence Land Company, who were advised by his old friend Maurice Thomson, to create a new colony on Ruatan Island off the coast of Honduras in the Caribbean Sea. At the time, Honduras itself was a part of Spain's Kingdom of Guatemala, and Spanish settlements dominated the mainland of Central America. Claiborne optimistically called his new colony Rich Island, but Spanish power in the area was too strong and the colony was destroyed in 1642.[25]
     Soon after, the chaos of the English Civil War gave Claiborne another opportunity to reclaim Kent Island. The Calverts, who had received such constant support from the King, in turn supported the monarchy during the early stages of the parliamentary crisis. Claiborne found a new ally in Richard Ingle, a pro-Parliament Puritan merchant whose ships had been seized by the Catholic authorities in Maryland in response to a royal decree against Parliament. Claiborne and Ingle saw an opportunity for revenge using the Parliamentary dispute as political cover, and in 1644 Claiborne seized Kent Island while Ingle took over St. Mary's.[26] Both used religion as a tool to gain popular support, arguing that the Catholic Calverts could not be trusted. By 1646, however, Governor Leonard Calvert had retaken both St. Mary's and Kent Island with support from Governor Berkeley of Virginia, and, after Leonard Calvert died in 1648, Cecil Calvert appointed a pro-Parliament Protestant to take over as governor.[27] The rebellion and its religious overtones was one of the factors that led to passage of the landmark Maryland Toleration Act of 1649, which declared religious tolerance for Catholics and Protestants in Maryland.[28]
     In 1648 a group of merchants in London applied to Parliament for revocation of the Maryland charter from the Calverts.[29] This was rejected, but Claiborne received a final opportunity to reclaim Kent Island when he was appointed by the Puritan-controlled Parliament to a commission which was charged with suppressing Anglican disquiet in Virginia; Virginia in this case defined as "all the plantations in the Bay of the Chesapeake."[30] Claiborne and fellow commissioner Richard Bennett secured the peaceful submission of Virginia to Parliamentary rule, and the new Virginia Assembly appointed Claiborne as Secretary of the colony.[31] It also proposed to Parliament new acts which would give Virginia more autonomy from England, which would benefit Claiborne as he pressed his claims on Kent Island. He and Bennett then turned their attention to Maryland and, arguing again that the Catholic Calverts could not be trusted and that the charter gave the Calverts too much power, demanded that the colony submit to the Commonwealth.[31] Governor Stone briefly refused but gave in to Claiborne and the Commission, and submitted Maryland to Parliamentary rule.[32]
     Claiborne made no overt legal attempts to re-assert control over Kent Island during the commission's rule of Maryland, although a treaty concluded during that time with the Susquehannocks claimed that Claiborne owned both Kent and Palmer Islands.[33] Claiborne's legal designs on Maryland were once again defeated when Oliver Cromwell returned Calvert to power in 1653, after the Rump Parliament ended.[34] In 1654, Governor Stone of Maryland tried to reclaim authority for the proprietor and declared that Claiborne's property and his life could be taken at the Governor's pleasure.[35] Stone's declaration was ignored and Claiborne and Bennett again overthrew him, creating a new assembly in which Catholics were not allowed to serve.[36] Calvert, now angry at Stone for what he perceived as weakness, demanded that Stone do something, and in 1655 Stone reclaimed control in St. Mary's and led a group of soldiers to Providence (modern Annapolis). Stone was captured and his force defeated by local Puritan settlers, who took control of the colony.[37] Given the new situation, Claiborne and Bennett went to England in hopes of convincing Cromwell to change his mind but, to their dismay, no decision was made and, lacking royal authority, the Puritans gave power over to a new governor appointed by Calvert.[38] Going behind Claiborne's back, Bennett and another commissioner reached an agreement with Calvert that virtually guaranteed his continued control over Maryland through the remainder of the Protectorate.[39]
     With no authority left in Maryland, Claiborne turned to his political offices in Virginia. However, as a consequence of his continuous conflict and disruption, over several years, of authority and government in both Maryland and Virginia in pursuit of his commercial interests, as well as his alliance with the Parliament faction during these activities, upon the restoration of the British monarchy in 1660 he had few friends left in government. Claiborne therefore retired from political affairs in 1660 and spent the remainder of his life managing his 5,000 acre (2,023 hectare) estate, "Romancoke", near West Point on the Pamunkey River, dying there in about 1677.[40]
     Family life and descendants
     In the midst of the political turmoil of the conflict over Kent Island, Claiborne married Elizabeth Butler of Essex, who would remain his wife at least through 1668.[5] Claiborne was also the forebear of a number of lines of American Claibornes, and among his descendants are William C. C. Claiborne, first governor of Louisiana, fashion designer Liz Claiborne,[41], the late minister Jerry Falwell, Folk musician/science and linguistics writer Robert Claiborne, and a number of political figures from Tennessee and Virginia.[42] Descendants of the Claiborne family have formed a society to advance the genealogical study of Claiborne's lineage.[43]
