     Nathaniel Butler became a privateer who later served as the colonial governor of Bermuda. He had built many structures still seen in Bermuda today including many of the island's coastal fortresses and the State House, in St.George's, the oldest surviving English settlement in the New World.

     Comments:     son of Matthew Jouett, was born in Albemarle county, Virginia, and kept the Swan Tavern in Charlottesville. On June 3, 1781, he was in the Cuckoo Tavern at Louisa, when Tarleton's troops swept by, intending to surprise the legislature then holding its session at Charlottesville. Suspecting their design, Jouett mounted his horse--a very fleet Virginia blood horse--and rode on at full speed by a shorter and disused road and arrived in Charlottesville in time to give notice to the members, who thereupon dispersed to meet in Staunton. On his way to Charlottesville Jouett stopped at Monticello and gave information of Tarleton's approach to Governor Jefferson. Without this timely notice it is probable that the whole government of Virginia would have been captured. After providing for the public safety Jonett mounted his horse and went leisurely along and was pursued by some of Tarleton's troopers. He let them come quite close to him, when giving his fleet horse the spur he was speedily out of sight. He owned considerable land in Albemarle and many lots in Charlottesville. He kept the Swan Tavern till he died in 1802. He married Mourning, daughter of Robert Harris, of "Brown's Cove," Albemarle county. His son Matthew was a captain in the revolutionary army and fell in the battle of Brandywine. His son John succeeded him in conducting the Swan, but later moved to Kentucky. His son Robert was also a captain in the revolution and was afterwards a lawyer. He died in 1796, leaving a daughter Alice, who became the wife of James W. Bouldin, of Charlotte county; ; VIII--Prominent Persons

     Note: Will is at Richmond County. The name of county changed to Columbia two years after his death. DAR considers Columbia as his death county.
     American Revolutionary Service: Joel and family moved to Stephens Creek, Edgefield District, South Carolina in 1779, about 30 miles from Augusta, Georgia. The following winter, all of South Carolina was over-run by the British Troops. Joel was seized and thrown into the Camden jail. Gaunt, hungry and miserable, he was subjected to taunts of passing Tory. Without medical aid and a scant supply of hard bread, Joel and about 250 others remained prisoners the greater part of the summer. Some of Joel's loyal neighbors gained his release. His house was burned twice by the Tories. In 1783, he and family moved to Georgia.
