     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
Col. William Overton died in 1690 at Albemarle Co., Virginia, USA.2
Col. William Overton was buried in 1690 at Cedar Hill Cemetery, Hanover, Hanover Co., Virginia, USA,

;
from Find A Grave:
     BIRTH     3 Dec 1638, England
     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 lived at Glen Cairn, Hanover Co., Virginia, USA.6 GAV-8.

Col. William Overton immigrated circa 1669 to Hanover Co., Virginia, USA; per Boddie [1960:127]: "It is believed and family tradition has always had it, that [Robert's] son, William Overton, came to Virginia in search of his father about 1669 and failing to locate him, remained in Hanover County, Virginia, where in 1670 he brought over his fiancee, Elizabeth Waters..."7
Col. William Overton was mentioned in a land transaction on 23 April 1681 at Falling Creek, Hanover Co., Virginia, USA,
Memo: per Boddie [1960:127]: "The Virginia Land Books contain records of a deed for 4600 acres on the south side of Pamunky River on Falling Creek april 23, 1681, to William Overton for transporting ninety-two persons to the colony."7
Col. William Overton was mentioned in a land transaction in 1690 at St. Peter's Parish, Hanover Co., Virginia, USA,
Memo: per Boddie [1960:127]: "...deed to William Overton in 1690...for additional land in St. Peter's Parish."7
In Ann Peake's will dated 29 September 1697 at St. Sepulchre Parish, London, City of London, Greater London, England, Col. William Overton was named as an heir;
Per Baskervill [1921:151] "...it names "son John ·Waters, who for divers years hath been gone to Virginia, five shillings and no more; son Samuel Waters and Margaret his wife ten shillings apiece; daughter ELIZA­ BETH 0vERTON, now in Virginia, ten shillings; and William, her husband, ten shillings; son in law, Mr. William Goodwin, ten shillings for a ring ; brother in law, Caleb Millett, ten shillings; son Thomas Waters residuary legatee, and he the sole executor."7,8

Per Spraker:
     “The first known member of the family was Major Robert Harris (born 1630; died 1700), who emigrated from Wales during the period from 1652-1659, and settled on the James River, near Weyajioke, in Virginia. By some it is thought that he was employed in the tobacco house of a man named Rice, who soon died, and that Harris married his widow. At any rate about 1650 he married Mrs. Mary (Claibourne) Rice, whose mother was Elizabeth Butler, and her father, William Claibourne (b. 1587; d. 1676). (a)
     “(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 (6), Kings of Scotland, Odin and othet kings of Escardia and Eric, King of the Goths 751 B. C. He was appointed Surveyor General at the solicitation of his cousin Ann, Countess of Pembroke. He was a member of the Virginia Council; Secretary of the Colony from 1625-1635, and again from 1652-1660. In 1642 the king (Eng.) describing him as "My well beloved servant," appointed him Treasurer of the Colony for life. Four ancestors of William Claiborne signed the petition demanding of King John the Magna Charta.) (c)
Spraker cites:

     “(b) "William Claiborne of Virginia," John Herbert Claiborne, M. D; F. A. C. S (1917) p. 2-3. (G. P. Putnam & Sons, New York Pub.)

Per Miller:
     "Since the above was written we are indebted to Mrs. Cassius M. Clay, of Paris, Ky., for the following additional facst [sic]: 'Major Robert Harris was a member of the Virginia House of Burgesses from Hanover County, 173 6-17 3 8, 1740-1742, and Justice of the Peace of Louisa County in 1742, and Surveyor in 1744.

     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."
The Knight is dust--
His sword is rust---
His soul is with the Saints we trust."

     This book claims he is a descendant of Malcom of Scotland and of Bardolph, descended from Rolf "the Norseman" who conquered Normandy in 912 A.D.

     "It is, of course, possible that Col. William Claiborne married twice. If he married Elizabeth about the time that the dower was given, in 1644, she could hardly have been the mother of the eldest son, who as "Captain William Claiborne" received a grant in 1657. Contrary to what has been frequently stated, infants could, and frequently did receive grants, but they were not captains of militia in boyhood.
     "The tradition that Col. Claiborne married a Buller can perhaps be accounted for by a statement in a letter from Governor Leonard Calvert to his brother, Lord Baltimore, written in 1638 (to W.H. Browne's "George and Cecilius Calvert," p. 68, &c.) in which he says that on Kent Island John Boteler, or Butler (he writes the name in each way), William Claiborne's brother-in-law, was at first disposed to resist the Maryland authorities, but afterwards submitted. Mr. Browne says that Boteler was appointed by Calvert commander of the militia of Kent Island, and held various offices of trust in the colony until his death in 1642.

Wyatt in 1621; member of the Governor's Council from 1625 to 1660; secretary 1625 and treasurer of the Virginia colony; had one grant of 24,000 acres of land in King William County; established a trading post at Kent Island in 1631 which was later claimed by Gov. Leonard Calvert as belonging to Maryland Claiborne was appointed one of the three commissioners to rule Virginia under Cromwell. They arrived at the head of an English expedition in March 1652, overthrew the Cavalier Government and established a Roundhead Governor and Claiborne as Secretary of State. In 1658 the Province of Maryland was restored to Lord Baltimore. William Claiborne was colonel of a command against the Indians and in 1653 deputy governor. Seated at "Romancoke," King William County, he died 1676, having married in London about 1638 Jane Buller

;      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." (See Torrence 1948)
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]. Richardson's lineage appears to be based on the work of Torence (1948).1,15,12,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23 GAV-9.
Col. William Claiborne was educated on 31 May 1617; Per Torrence: "Claybourne, William, Adm[itted] pen[sioner] (age 16) at Pembroke [College] May 31, 1617; s[on] of Thomas, of Crayford, Kent. Matric[ulated] 1617."24
