AnneClaiborne Abt. 1639. 5605.AnneClaiborne Notes for Governor/ Captain John West: From Paulette Ownby: When decision was reached, 1630, to plant a settlement on the York River, Colonel John West was among the first to patent lands there and by 1632 was established on his plantation, which, sold to Edward Digges, 1650, was then known as the "E.D. Plantation" and later as "Bellefield." From York, John West removed to his plantation at the fork of the York River on the site of the present town of West Point originally called Delaware. This tract of 3000 acres may be identified in a patent issued to him 6 March 1653, which included 850 acres granted to him, 3 July 1652. In addition, he was granted 1550 acres, 6 May 1651, about 6 miles up York River up the fort (fork) on the south of the River." which he subsequently sold to Major William Lewis, who included the land in his patent for 2600 acres issued, 20 January 1656. On 27 May 1654 West patented 1000 acres in Gloucester County, on the "N.E. side of the Mattapony river." Colonel John West died at his West Point plantation, 1659, and March 1660 the House of Burgesses passed a resolution of good will in recognition of "the many important favors and services rendered to the countrey of Virginia by the noble family of West, predecessors of Mr. John West, their now only survivor ..... It is ordered that the levies of the said Master West and his family be remitted, and that he be exempt from payment thereof during life." The Honorable John West was the twelfth child of Sir Thomas West, Second Lord De La Warr, and his wife Lady Anne Knollys. The Honorable John West matriculated at Magdalen College 17 February 1603/9 and received the degree of Bachelor of Arts on the 1st ofDecember 1613. He came to Virginia in 1618 and immediately associated himself with the military life of the colony. After the massacre of 1622 he commanded a company of men against the Indians. Great unrest arose in Virginia in the spring of 1635, and the Council advised that Governor Sir John Harvey return to England, whereupon Colonel John West was elected Governor and Captain General of Virginia and served until 18 January 1636/7, shortly after which he was appointed to the office of Muster Master General of Virginia by King Charles I of England. Child of Governor/ West and Anne Claiborne is:

Notes for Major Joseph Crowshaw: From Paulette Ownby: Major Joseph Croshaw probably was educated in England and had legal training, for he appeared often as attorney in the County Court. A pronouced Royalist, he had no love for Cromwell and his objection to the succession of Richard Cromwell, 1659/60, when serving as a member of the House of Burgesses from York County, brought about his suspension by Governor Mathews from his office as Justice of York County, The first of Major Croshaw's numerous patents for land was that for 600 acres in Charles River (later York) County, dated 9 August 1637. He lived at "Poplar Neck" on the south side of York River, which tract of 1000 acres patented by him 10 December 1651 is described as across from land of Richard Croshaw. His will dated 10 April 1667 was proved in York County 29 July 1667. Joseph II (April 1667-8 August 1682) born less than a month before his father's death was devised the bulk of his estate with reversion to the Wests if he died childless. This occurred and the Croshaw land passed into West ownership. Children of Major Crowshaw and ?? are:
