Notes for GULIELMUS SMITH:
GULIELMUS SMITH, some say GULIELMUS is Latin and some French, but all agree it means WILLIAM. It is not his middle name, he has none, but can be found under Gulielmus or William depending on the document. It is not known who his parents were, but I believe he was born in Hanover Co, VA in about 1735.He moved from Hanover Co, VA to Granville Co, NC around 1766.I believe he went there for free or cheap land from the Military. (I just recently found out that many people were leaving Hanover Co, VA because of the Indian problem they were having there, this may be one of the reasons so many from that area left and went to Granville Co, NC.) He was a wealthy land and slave owner in VA, as well as NC. He was very active in Granville Co, NC. He is listed in numerous court reports and his estate was enormous upon his death.He is listed in Granville Co. on tax rolls of 1769, 1771, 1784, and 1785.He is listed in DAR for having servedin the NC Militia in 1775 in the Revolutionary War. In May 1776, he is listed in court records of Granville Co. as a Juror. On January 15, 1787, he and John MACON, John Williams DANIEL, Pleasant HENDERSON, and Benjamin HAWKINS reported as Commissioners for the Dividing Line between Granville County and the new Warren County.He is listed on three various Warren Co. court records for 1794, and three in 1795, one in 1796, one in 1810, and one in 1813.He is listed on the tax rolls in Warren Co. for 1811, 1812, and 1813.His Will is recorded in Warren Co, NC on May 10, 1814. He leaves a wealthy estate in NC when he dies in 1814, where his son, Wiley or Willie, as he is refereed to sometimes,inherits much of his father's estate, but he was not the oldest son . This may be that the others had or planned to moved away. Many of his children were born in Hanover County, VA or Granville County, NC. Many were married in Granville/Warren Co, NC and many moved to Claiborne and Campbell County, TN. It is not known where Gulielmus is buried but I believe he is either buried on the last plantation he owned in NC or in VA, in a Family Cemetery.
Historical Facts About Hanover County, VA
Hanover County is located in the east-central Piedmont and Coastal Plain areas of VA, between the Chickahominy and Pamunkey Rivers. It is approximately 90 miles S of Washington, D.C. and 12 miles N of Richmond. It is a part of the greater Richmond metropolitan area. The County land area is 471 square miles and is bordered by the Counties of Caroline, King William, New Kent, Henrico, Goochland, Spotsylvania and Louisa. There is one incorporated town in the County, which is the Town of Ashland (www.town.ashland.va.us).
The County was settled by planters and plantation owners. It was officially formed on November 26, 1720. Gulielmus Smith was born about 1735.Patrick Henry was born in Hanover County in 1736.Patrick began his law career with an impassioned plea against the King (known as the Parson's Cause case) at Hanover Courthouse. He also worked at the Hanover Tavern, located across the street from the Courthouse. Hanover County was named for King George I of England, who was Elector of Hanover in Germany when he came to the throne. Tobacco barges came up the Pamunkey River to Hanovertown to load and unload goods in an area that had been the home of the Chickahominy and Pamunkey Indians, whose reservations are located nearby.
During the Revolution, Lord Cornwallis stayed at Hanover Tavern on his way to Yorktown (it's said that he left without paying his bill), while General Washington followed a short time later for a stay (and it's said that he did pay his bill). Colonel Tarleton and General Lafayette traversed the County several times. The Copt de Rochambeau also marched through the Courthouse on the way to Yorktown. Dolley Madison was a resident of Hanover during this same period.
Vice President Henry Clay of Kentucky was born in Hanover, as was South Carolina Senator Thomas Sumpter. Edmund Ruffin, the great agronomist, was also born in Hanover. It was Mr. Ruffin who fired the first shot on Ft. Sumpter, beginning the War Between the States. (It was said that he later became so distraught over the Confederacy having lost the war, that he took his own life rather then live under the Union.)
Hanover County played a major role in the Civil War. Many battles of the war were fought in Hanover, including some of the bloodiest conflicts as the Union tried to take Richmond. Those battles include Mechanicsville, first and second Cold Harbor, North Anna, Hanover Courthouse, Gaines Mill, Seven Days and Watt House.
Per Hanover County Government Online
There is an interesting court case posted about Hezakiah STRUM, following the death of Mary Mcgeehee GOOCH, wife of Gideon GOOCH of Granville Co, NC. Hezekiah married Gideon's daughter, Susannah, and lived on a neighboring 80 acre parcel of land in Island Creek District.This is proven by tax records.After the death of Gideon, Hezekiah moved to Gideon GOOCH's farm, where his two slaves, joined the other three slaves of Mary GOOCH's, to work the farm jointly. At that time, many of Mary's children had moved to White Co, TN.Apparently, Mary's heirs sued Hezekiah since he took over the farm and property for his own.A deposition by a man named JOHNSON relates that before Hezekiah came to live with Mary, she kept a plentiful table, but afterwards, she was destitute.Rachel STRUM, comments in her deposition on Mary's drinking. Rachel my have been Hezekiah's second wife but not proven.No marriage bond is found. It is unclear whether Mary's downfall was Hezekiah or her drinking. Hezekiah's father was Christian STRUM from PA.
This is the same land that Gulielmus owned upon his death.Gulielmus knew how to take advantage of a good opportunity.
Gulielmus's wife is not known. Back then, women were not allowed to own or sell property and I believe this is the reason that she is not mentioned in any of the documents. Also, there is a strong possibility that she was either Mulatto or Indian.It has always been rumored in the family that there was Indian blood in us but none has been proven. Smith is a German name. One would think that we would be blond haired, blue eyed, fair skin, but we have olive skin, high cheek bones, and dark hair. Gulielmus's wife is not named in his will, indicating that she had already died. But she must have moved with the family to Granville Co, NC. After moving, Gulielmus had more children born to him in Granville and Warren County, NC.

More About GULIELMUS SMITH:
Burial: April 1814, I believe it is on one of his plantations in Granville/Warren Co, NC. I went to Granville to do research and found out that most likely his plantation is under water now, being Kerr Lake.
Children of GULIELMUS SMITH and UNKNOWN SPOUSE are:
i. JACULIN 'JACKEY'3 SMITH.
Notes for JACULIN 'JACKEY' SMITH:
Not much is known about Jaculin Smith, son of Gulielmus Smith. He might have been born either in Hanover Co, VA or Granville/Warren Co, NC. He is sometimes refered to as Jackey Smith. His birth and death dates are not known, but he must have died after his father's Will was made since he is mentioned in it....I give to my son, Jackey SMITH, one Negro woman named Amey, to him, his Heirs and Assigns forever.
