William Mabe was born in Bridstow, Herefordshire, England. He came to America as a bonded passenger in 1720. On February 1, 1738 he received a land grant from King George II. The grant, located in Hanover County, Virginia, was for 204 acres. To keep the land he had to improve five acres per year.
William was married to Elizabeth and they had five sons, John, Charles, Robert, Phillip, and William. They are all mentioned in his will which was probated in 1762. Each son inherited 40 acres. His descendants have fought and/or died in every major conflict in the nation’s history. Today, the majority of his descendants live in Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Texas, California, and some in Florida.
I created this web-page to give folks an opportunity to exchange information about his descendants. Even though researchers have put in many hours researching and crosschecking facts do not hesitate to interject your thoughts or ideas. In other words, do not assume everything in the reports is gospel. I know there are errors in the report.
Even though there are over 3,300 families in the book, there are still a lot of Mabe or Mabe-related families not accounted for in the book. Let me know if your family line is not in the report and I will add it.
The main report is in book format and has eight generations of William Mabe's Descendants. By using the Table of Contents, the back button on your browser, and the Index feature you should be able to navigate through the report easily. I included the Descendants of Abraham Mabe and other Mabe families in the report I have no idea where their families fit. I have sections about John Mabe's Revoluntionary War pension, Wills, deeds, the Civil War, and a bibliography. The bibliography lists the sources that I used to compile the information. One of the major sources was a book written about the Mabe family that Virgina King and Georgia Thomas wrote a number of years ago. Sorry to say that book is out of print. Other contributers are Mary Jo Loyd and Mary Kay Mabe (Wythe County Mabes), Stan Cornelius (Family of Winefred Mabe), Clifford Sands (Family of James Isaac Mabe), Barbara Cheek, Billie Edwards, Darrel Warren Mabe, Darrel Lee Mabe, George Norman Mabe, Pamela Hill, and many others that have sent me their family history.
I did not footnote each item because I did not want to overburden the report. I'll send source information to anyone that wants it.
