Re:Joseph Pendarvis and wife Elizabeth Stonewall came to America (one of them was the indentured servant of Thomas Hart) with the First Fleet and brought their children,John, Mary, and Ann on the ship, Carolina.
Joseph and wife Elizabeth Pendarvis did not arrive in Charleston together.Elizabeth and her daughter Priscilla arrived in the First Fleet of 1669/70.Joseph arrived in August 1671 as servant to Thomas Hurt.Joseph was a free man less than a year later, and so was probably an employee or apprentice, rather than an indentured servant.Another servant to Thomas Hurt was Elizabeth Stonehull, but she was not the wife of Joseph Pendarvis.This mistake has been circulating for quite a while, but is unlikely.Of the children, only Priscilla was born before Elizabeth arrived in Charleston.John, Mary, and Ann Pendarvis were all born later than 1671.
Re:Joseph was the son of Alexander and Alice Humphrey Pendarvis of Cornwall County, England. Alexander died 28 July 1684 in Cornwall County, England. Alexander's parents were Thomas and ? Pendarvis. Thomas was born in Camborne, England, no dates given. His parents were David and Mary Sperron Pendarvis of Crowan, Cornwall County, England.
Joseph Pendarvis was not the son of Alexander Pendarves and Alice Humphrey.Alexander died in 1624, not 1684.The above pedigree has also circulated for years, but is in fact, faulty conjecture.There is a slim possibility that Joseph was a grandson to this couple, but that too is unlikely.At any rate he was probably the heir male to this family in 1763.He was dead, of course, but his male heirs would have assumed that situation had they been aware of it.His probable ancestor was Alexander's brother Ralph Pendarves by his wife Anna Eva.Their son John's oldest son John was born in 1622 and died in 1656.Though I have yet to prove it, he is in my opinion the most likely father to our Joseph.
Re:Also, has anyone else found that William Pendarvis born in 1729 (son of Joseph and Parthena Pendarvis) was married to Catherine Pound or Pfund?
Evidence of their relationship, which was, at least in the beginning, not a legal marriage, can be found documented in the Giessendanner Record.Pfund was the correct spelling, though the family later anglicized to Pound.The 1729 birthdate is an estimate and not a fact.
Re:William and Catherine Pound Pendarvis were the parents of William 1754-1782 (killed in Revolutionary War, he was a Tory), Anne 1756-?, and John 1759-?. Does anyone know to whom the William that was born in 1754-1782 was married to? He seems to be the lost link to the William and Margaret Vance Pendarvis of Smith County Tennessee.
William is the father to the William born circa 1754 and died in 1782, but Catherine Pfund is not necessarily the mother.She is documented as mother to Anne and John, but not William.William, Sr.'s brother Brand also had a son named William who was killed in 1782 while fighting for the Tories.Brand also lost his son John in the War, but William's son John survived.I agree that William, son of William, of all the male Pendarvises of the right age, is the most likely father for William Pendarvis of Tenn..
