Descendants of William Boddie
Generation No. 1
1.WILLIAM4 BODDIE(JOHN3, THOMAS2, JOHN1) was born 1633 in Essex, England, and died Abt. 1717 in Isle of Wight, VA.He married (1) ANNE CHILD.She died Abt. 1683 in Isle of Wight, VA.He married (2) ELIZABETH BENNETT Abt. 1683.She was born 1650, and died 1699 in Isle of Wight, VA.He married (3) MRS. MARY [HUNT] [EDWARDS] GRIFFIN Abt. 1700, daughter of WILLIAM HUNT.She died 1732.
Notes for WILLIAM BODDIE:
The parentage of William Boddie is not definitely proven, he was probably the son of John and Mary Boddie of London and Ingatestone, Essex.
Emigrated with his first wife, Anne, and his daughter Mary. [HISTORICAL SOUTHERN FAMILIES, VOL. 1, John Bennett Boddie, p. 340.] to Isle of Wight, VA. in 1661.This wife Anne [or Anna] appears as the joint signer of his deed up to about 1683, and she probably died about that time.
He received a grant of 6,700 acres of land in Isle of Wight, VA for taking with him 67 servants.
Eventually owned about 8,000 acres of land in Wight County--some of it he purchases, most of it was grants for bringing colonists from England to Virginia.
SEVENTEENTH CENTURY ISLE OF WIGHT COUNTY, VIRGINIA,. p. 339, 341, 345, 347.
Became a Quaker about 1672/3.
He resided in Cypress Creek District in Isle of Wight near the Nansemond County lne.This was across the line from Chuckatuck in Nansemond County where the Quakers held their meetings.
He married his second wife, Elizabeth, about 1683, and since that marriage was outside the Quaker order, he seems to have changed his wording of legal documents from the Quaker style about that time.
He was one of the largest speculators in land in Virginia at that time, and besides dealing in land was in the business of dealing in servants."These servants sometimes came over in strictly immigrant vessels in which they made the chief if not the only cargo.They were indentured for from 5 to 7 years and were used in clearing land and planting tobacco."SEVENTEENTH CENTURY ISLE OF WIGHT, Boddie, p. 350.
Wrote his will 17 December 1712, wp 25 Feb. 1717, Isle of Wight co., VA.
[He was probably about 85 years old when he died.At this time he had been nearly sixty years in Virginia.]"In the Name of God Amen:I, William Boddie, of the Isle of Wight county, being sick and weak of body, but of sound and perfect mind and memory, do make this my last Will and Testament in the manner and form following, that is to say, first and principally, I give and bequeath my soul into ye hands of Almighty God my Mker and Redeemer Christ Jesus, hoping through His merits, death and passion, to have full pardon and remission for all my sins, and my body I commit to the earth to be decently buried at ye discretion of my Executor, hereafter named, and as for my worldly estate, which it hath pleased God to lend me in this world, I give and dispose of as followeth, after myd ebts and legacies are paid.
I give and bequeath to my grandson, William Brown, one shilling.
I give and bequeath unto my grandson, Thomas Brown, one shilling, and also I do give and bequeath unto all their sisters, my grand-daughters, one shilling apiece.
I give and bequeath unto my daughter, Elizabeth Matthew, ten thousand pounds of good tobacco, as also one feather bed and bolster, one rugg, one pair of blanketts or sheets.
I give and bequeath unto my living son, John Boddie, all my lands, houses, orchards, and plantations, with their appurtenances to him and his heirs forever, excepting my now wife, Mary, her third during her natural life, but in case my son, John should die without issue, without disposing of the old land by will or otherwise, then I give the old land to my daughter, Elizabeth Matthews and her heirs forever.
I give and bequeath unto my dear and loving wife, Mary, one-third part of my personal estate to be delivered to her in specie and as for ye other two-thirds, I give and devise the same to my loving son, John Boddie, whom I do appoint whole and sole executor of this my last Will and Testament, herby revoking all former Wills by me made.
In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set me hand and seal this 17th day of December 1712."
Signed, sealed and published and delivered in presence of John Jones, Joseph Chapman, H. Leghtforth, 1712.
At a Court held for the isle of Wight county, ye 25th of February 1717.
The last Will and Testament of W. Boddie, was presented in Court by the Executor, who made oath thereto, and being proved in court by ye oaths of H. Lightfoot and Joseph Chapman, two of the witnesses, is admitted to record.SEVENTEENTH CENTURY ISLE OF WIGHT, Boddie, p. 352.
Buried 23 Feb 1717 at Isle of Wight, VA.
This is Chapter 1 from the unpublished McCarty manuscript dealing with the
The Boddie line to which the McCartys trace their line of descent is the South
Carolina line. It is traced by John Bennett Boddie in his "Seventeenth Century Isle
of Wight County, Virginia." In his book Mr. Boddie says the Virginia Boddies
probably are descended from William Boddie of Essex, England, who was a
captain in the English Navy during the time of Henry VIII, serving there 40 years.
He says, however, that this connection has not been proved.1 This William had a
son John, who was buried May 22, 1591 in London. His wife was Thomasine
Mildmay, who died in 1613. Their son Thomas married his cousin, Mary Mildmay.
She was buried July, 1634, and Thomas was buried in 1627, both in Freyering,
Essex, England. Their son John and his wife Mary are thought to be the parents
of William Boddie of Isle of Wight County, Virginia, ancestor of the Virginia
William Boddie was baptized in 1633 in Essex, England. His will was pro-bated
February 25, 1717 in Isle of Wight County, Virginia. He married, first, Anna, who
died about 1683 in Isle of Wight County. He married, second, Elizabeth, about
1684, who died about 1699 in Isle of Wight County. He married, third, Mrs. Mary
(Edwards) Griffin about 1700. William Boddie became a Quaker about 1672.3
William owned about 8,000 acres of land in Isle of Wight County, some of which
he purchased but most of which was grants for bringing colonists from England to
Virginia. On October 20, 1661 he received 550 acres for transporting 11 persons
to Virginia. On July 12, 1655, he received 3,350 acres (including the above 550)
for transporting 56 other persons. For transporting an additional
1. Seventeenth Century Isle of Wight County, Virginia, p. 339
2. Ibid p. 341
3. Ibid p. 345, 347
67 persons to Isle of Wight County on April 26, 1684 he received another 3,350
Since the Boddie line married into the Bennett family, the connection between the
two families might be clearer if the Bennett line is set down here and now and the
Boddie line connection is shown later.
Edward Bennett was christened February 2, 1577-78 in Somerset, England, and
died before September 20, 1664 in Isle of Wight County, Virginia. He married
Mary Bourne, who was born about 1600 in Middlesex, England. She died after
1635 in Isle of Wight County. Edward founded a successful Puritan colony in
Virginia; he transported about 600 immigrants to Virginia; he was a member of the
London Company of Virginia; and he was a member of the Virginia House of
Burgesses, May 29, 1628.5
Sylvester Bennett, daughter of Edward, was christened October 25, 1630 in
London, England. She died about 1706 in Isle of Wight County. She married Col.
Nicholas Hill about 1658 in Isle of Wight County. He was born about 1620 in
England. He was a member of the House of Burgesses 1659-1666. His will was
probated October 20, 1675 in Isle of Wight County.6
Elizabeth Hill, daughter of Sylvester Bennett and Col. Nicholas Hill, was born
about 1670 in Isle of Wight County. She married William Thomas before 1692 in
Isle of Wight County and died after 1702 in Isle of Wight County. He was born
about 1660 in Isle of Wight County and died about 1710 in Isle of Wight County.7
Elizabeth Thomas, daughter of Elizabeth Hill, married John Boddie, a son of
William Boddie, the first Boddie to settle in Isle of Wight County, Virginia. She was
born in 1692 in Isle of Wight County and died about 1752 in Bertie precinct,
4. Seventeenth Century Isle of Wight County, Virginia, pp. 342-343
5. Ibid pp 14, 34, 38, 41
6. Ibid pp 276-78
7. Ibid pp 255-57
North Carolina. He was born about 1685 in Isle of Wight County and died March
1720. They married in Isle of Wight County about 1708.8
On December 7, 1734 William's son, John Boddie, Jr., married Elizabeth Jefferys
in Bertie County, North Carolina. He was born between 1710 and 1715 in Isle of
Wight County and died after October 6, 1777, in Edgefield County, South
Carolina. Elizabeth was born in 1718 in Isle of Wight County and died after June
20, 1742 in Granville County, North Carolina, or Edgefield, South Carolina.9
Their son John Boddie III, a Revolutionary soldier, was born before 1750 and
died between the census of 1790 and 1800 in Granville County, North Carolina,
and Edgefield County, South Carolina.10 He married Hannah before 1770 in
Granville, North Carolina. Hannah was born about 1745 and died after 1830,
probably. She maintained a home until 1810 but she does not appear in the 1820
census. However, her son, Nathan Boddie, in the 1830 census has in his
household one female between the ages 80 and 90. This, no doubt, is his mother
Hannah. Nathan himself is between ages 60 and 70, and his second wife,
Elizabeth is between ages 20 and 30.
John Boddie III was a soldier in the company of his uncle, Captain Osborne
Jefferys, in the North Carolina Militia for Granville County in 1771. (North
Carolina Col. Rec. Vol. 22, p. 161) He was also a soldier in the Revolution. The
North Carolina Revolutionary Army Accounts on file in the Historical Mission at
Raleigh show that he received 40 pounds as a soldier of the North and South
Carolina Militia. (Book C, P. 147, #5049. See also Vol. 1. Folio 44, p. 44.)10
Nathan Boddie, probably the oldest son of John Boddie III and Hannah, was born
between 1760 and 1770, as his age is given in the 1830 census as between
8. Seventeenth Century Isle of Wight County, Virginia pp 352-53
9. Ibid pp 355, 377-79
10. Ibid p. 379
60 and 70 years. He died November 8, 1841. He married between 1790 and
1800, probably about 1792. He appears alone in the 1790 census, but in the
1800 census he has a family consisting of two boys and two girls under ten years
of age and a wife between ages.
Allen Boddie was evidently Hannah's second son, as he was probably born about
1774. The 1800 census shows that he is between the ages 16 and 26. This
census also shows that he has three girls and two boys under ten years of age.
Allen died about 1826, as administration papers were taken for his estate in that
year. He married Elizabeth, who had married Elisha Jones before the estate was
settled in 1832.11 Philip McCarty, husband of Allen's sister Mahala, was made
guardian of his children.
Joshua Boddie died during or after 1830, as he appears in that census as being
between ages 50 and 60. He was, therefore, born about 1776. His estate was
settled in 1839 when his heirs named were his widow and 15 children.
John Boddie married Sallie Mitchell in 1802, daughter of John Mitchell. She was
born in 1780 and died in 1820.12 He was born about 1778 and died before 1820.
They had eight children. He had been married before he married Sallie and had
Obediah Boddie was born in South Carolina in 1786 and died in 1864. His first
wife was Margaret Durham. His second, Jane, was born in 1804. Obediah had 13
children. He lost three sons in the Confederate service.13
The other son and two daughters of Hannah and John Boddie III have not been
traced. One girl was born about 1780 and the other about 1792. The boy was
born about 1790.
Nathan Boddie and his first wife, name unknown, had eight children: David,
11. Seventeenth Century Isle of Wight County, Virginia p. 385
12. Ibid p. 385
13. Ibid p. 380
Mahala, Wesley, Hannah, Nathan, Jr., Mary, Joseph, Rhoda. The four born
before 1800 were David, 1793; Mahala, 1795; Wesley, 1797; and Hannah 1799
or 1800. Mahala was between ages 16 and 26 in 1820 and between 30 and 40 in
1830. Therefore, she could not have been born after 1800 or before 1794.
Hannah was between ages 20 and 30 in 1830. That would place her birth about
1799 or 1800. Wesley's birth is known to be 1797. That would place the birth of
David, the other boy born before 1800, at about 1793.
David Boddie married Elizabeth Mitchell, daughter of John Mitchell. David died
about 1823, as administration papers were taken out on his estate October 20,
1823. Wesley Boddie was born in South Carolina in 1797. He married Hannah
Smith, and they had six children. They lived in Batesburg, South Carolina.
Hannah Boddie was born about 1800 in South Carolina. She married Thomas
Bartley, and the 1830 census shows that they had three boys and one girl.
Nathan Boddie, Jr., was born in South Carolina in 1804 and died in 1873. He
married, first, Edna Eidson; second, Elizabeth Warren; third, Nancy Warren,twin
to Elizabeth. He had a large family.
Mary Boddie was born about 1806 in South Carolina. She married Alexander
Gregory and the 1830 census shows them with three children. Mary died
between 1841 and 1843. In 1841 she signed a court petition concerning her
father's estate, but in the settlement of the estate in 1843 Alexander is named
"guardian of his minor children."
Joseph Boddie was born in South Carolina about 1808. Whether he is married is
Rhoda Boddie married Lewis Herlong. She was born about 1812. The 1830
census shows that they have four children and that she is between 15 and 20
14. Seventeenth Century Isle of Wight County, Virginia pp. 389-90
Nathan Boddie married second, Elizabeth, who was between ages 20 and 30 in
the 1830 census. They had two children, Elizabeth and Michael. In 1841 Michael
was 12 years old, as shown by guardianship papers, and in 1830 Elizabeth was
between five and ten years old. That would suggest that Nathan and Elizabeth
were married around 1822. That would mean that he was some 50 years older
than she was. Before Nathan's estate was settled in 1843, Elizabeth had married
James B. Boddie. This fact was stated in the settlement when she was paid $400
and given other property which Nathan "had of her at marriage."
Mahala Boddie married Philip McCarty probably in Edgefield County, South
Carolina about 1817. Their first child, William Allen, was born in 1819 in
Tennessee. They had six other children: Alsa, Wilson, Tillman, Mary Ann,
Martha, Elizabeth. Mary Mitchell, daughter of Sion Mitchell, had taken care of
Mahala in her last illness, and after Mahala's death, Mary and Philip were married
at least by July, 1832. Twins were born to them April 8, 1833.
The history of this McCarty family is told in the chapter on Philip McCarty.
