Some Descendants of Warwick Cammack
and his wife
Margaret (Maiden Name Unknown) Thatcher
Generation No. 1
1.Warwick5 Cammack(Sussex4 Camocke, 1st, Thomas3, Robert2, John1) was born between 1636 and 1639 at Malden, County Essex, England1, and died after February 26, 1679/80, in Old Rappahannock County, Virginia.He married Margaret (maiden name unknown)2,3,4 between 1667 and 1672, probably about 1668, in Old Rappahannock County, Virginia.She died about 1715 in Richmond County, Virginia5.
Information on Warwick Cammack from VIRGINIA COLONIAL ABSTRACTS Series 2, Volume 3: THE VIRGINIA COMPANY OF LONDON, 1607-1624 by Lindsay O. Duvall.
Warwick Cammack was in Virginia by September 2, 1664, on which date he witnessed a power of attorney from Eliza. Catlett to Capt. Thomas Green.He appears prominently thereafter in Rappahannock County records.On April 22, 1670, he patented 1,923 acres of land in Rappahannock County "in the freshes on the south side of the River and on the south side of the main run of Puemondsen Creek adjoining Hen. Peters & Jno. Mader" for the transportation of 39 persons into the Colony.That he could pay the passage of so many people indicates that he possessed substantial financial resources.

MARRIAGES OF RICHMOND COUNTY, VIRGINIA,by George Harrison Sanford King
"(Warwick Cammack) appears prominently on the Rappahannock County court records.By purchase and patent he acquired considerable land in the area which became Richmond County in 1692.His only son, John Cammack (1667-1717), d. s. p. and his three daughters gave rise to a numerous progeny."
The names of Warwick's children are found in the will of their mother, Margaret Cammack.
(Richmond County, Virginia)March 24, 1709 - March 7, 1715.Will of Margaret Cammack
In the Name of God Amen. I Margaret Cammack being very ancient and Weak in Body, but of good and perfect Memory thanks be to God - and calling to mind the uncertainty of this transitory life, and that all flesh must yield unto Death, Do make this my last Will and Testament in manner and form following revoking and annulling all will or wills heretofore by me made and this to be taken only for my last Will.
First I bequeath my Soul to God and my Body to the Ground to be decently buried at the discretion of my Executors hereafter named, and my Estate which it hath pleased God to lend me, it is my Will and desire that it be divided into three equal parts, the one of which parts I give to my Daughter Margaret Micou, the Second I give to my Daughter Susan Foster, and the third it is my Will that it shall be divided between my Daughter Mary Sterne, her Son William and her Son David Sterne, and if either of these should die without Heirs his or her said Estate to fall to the Survivor to have the Whole.
Secondly And forasmuch that my two Sons Sylvester Thatcher and John Cammock and my two Daughters Mary Richardson and Elizabeth Deane hath an Estate from their father, I give to each one of them one Shilling, the said Shilling to be the Conclusion of their position.
Thirdly I do Constitute and Appoint Mr. Paul Micou and Mr. John Foster to be Executors of this my last Will and Testament. In Witness whereof I have thereunto set my hand and Seal thisTwenty- fourth day of March, One thousand Seven hundred and Nine.
/s/ Margaret (X) Cammack
Signed and Sealed in the presence of us
Isaac (X) Truck
This will was proved in Richmond County Court the Seventh day of March 1715 by the oaths of Isaac Truck and John ?Phaile witnesses thereto and admitted to Record.
John Cammack was the son of Warwick and Margaret Cammack, and their daughters were Margaret Micou, Susan Foster and Mary Sterne, all of which can be proved by records of Essex and Richmond Counties, Virginia, and by an English source to be mentioned here later.
Mary Richardson, Elizabeth Deane and Sylvester Thatcher were Margaret's children by her first husband, Sylvester Thatcher (Sr.)
This is the last appearance in the records of Old Rappahannock County, Virginia, that I have found for Warwick Cammack:

. . . I have recently turned up some very clear documentary evidence in the Essex Record Office.
Letter from Gilbert METCALFE, of Rappahannock Creek Virginia. (Essex Record Office. Round Family of Birch, Colchester and District, Ref: D/DRb/F13)
"Virginia Decem'r ye 15th 1721. Mr Rich'd Freman,
Sr, the 2d of this instant broth'rs Paul Micou and Isaac Truck sent me yrs and wid Susan Denssires Letters to Jo'n Cammack, Decess; about an estate falling to him by death of Mr Sussex Cammack his unkell, which you say he mortgaged to a man in colchester but ye short in not telling his name and pertickerler place where he lives, and ye time Mr Sussex Cammack dide, and ye name of his estate and place and of him yt took adm'n on his person'll estate and when ye mortgage was maide and ye names of ye tenantes in possession und'r ye man yt ye estate is mortgaged to and desire youll inquire of Ms Denshire which was ye oldest Sussex or his brother Warwick and if ye latt'r did not mortgage sum estates himself before he came to this Land which I've often heard poore Jo. Cammock say he did who dide a bachelor and without will haveing littell to give now we maring his sisters are intitl'd to his inheritance Sir ye answer to this will oblidge ye freind unknown.
Do rite to me at my plantation on Rappahanock Creek in Rapp: Rivers. Gilbert Metcalfe."
END OF QUOTE FROM TIM SYLVESTER'S MESSAGE
This letter is proof that Warwick Cammack of Virginia was the brother of Sussex Cammack (Jr.) of England, and that Warwick Cammack's children were John, who died without heirs, a daughter who married Gilbert Metcalfe, a daughter who married Paul Micou, and a daughter who married Isaac Truck.We know from Margaret Cammack's will that Warwick and Margaret did have a son John, a daughter Margaret who married Micou, a daughter Susan who married Foster, and daughter Mary.Her surname was Sterne when her mother wrote her will, but by 1721, when Gilbert Metcalfe wrote the letter to Mr. Rich'd. Freman, Mary's husband, Francis Sterne (Sr.) had died and she had married Isaac Truck/Trocq.So this letter is all the proof we needed to prove Warwick Cammack's ancestry.

More About Warwick Cammack and Margaret.Their marriage has to have taken place between the death of Margaret's first husband, Sylvester Thatcher (Sr.), in about 1667, and September 5, 1572, when Margaret signed a power of attorney as Margaret Cammack.I suspect that the marriage took place not very long after Sylvester Thatcher's death, and I have given Warwick and Margaret's children dates of birth beginning in 1669, but that could be a mistake.All I really feel safe in saying is that they were born between 1667 and 1680.

Generation No. 3

William Cammock is appointed Guardian to George, William, Robert, John & Christopher Cammock, Orphans of William Cammock, deced., the said William entered into & acknowledged a Bond with security according to Law, which Bond is admitted to Record
From Mary Gregg:The William Cammock who is appointed guardian to George, William, Robert, John and Christopher was their grandfather, the William Cammack who was the son of Mary Cammack, and who died in 1783 in Spotsylvania County, Virginia.
I believe - but cannot prove - that he was appointed guardian to these five children because Mary, their father's widow, was not their mother.I believe that she was the mother of only Richard Roy Cammack and Jane Beverley Cammack.
