Notes for John Faulkner:
[James Williams.FTW]

John Faulkner's will, dated 9 May 1727, spells his name as Falkoner. It identifies him as a planter in Queen Anne County, Maryland and leaves his estate to his wife, Sarah, who also has charge of the sons, Thomas, James, William and Emanuel, until they are 21 and of the daughter, Ann, until she is 18 or married. The will is in Volume 6 of the Maryland Calendar of Wills. Note that this does not mean that John did not have eight children. Francis and John would have been over 21 and Temperance over 18 at the time the will was written, so they were not included in the assignment of custody.

In various places, John Faulkner's name is spelled Falconar and Forkner.
4. JOHN FAULKNER (THOMAS, JOHN) was born Abt. 1678 in Maryland, and died 1727 in Queen Anne's County,
Maryland. He married SARAH ELIZABETH FORD Abt. 1705 in Queen Anne's County, Maryland.

Sue and Mike:

I retrieved your FAULKNER lineage from your homepage and appreciate the
information very much. Sue and I are 7th cousins, twice removed. Not very close but still cousins. My FAULKNER connection is shown below.

I also noted that you do not show Ann, Emanuel and William as children of
John Faulkner and Sarah Ford. These children are specifically mentioned in John's will: "The Maryland Calendar of Wills, Falkoner (Falkner), John, St., planter, Queen Anne's Co., 29th March, 1726-7; 9th May, 1727. To wife Sarah, extx, entire estate and charge of child. Sons Thomas, James, William and Emanuel of age at 21 yrs., dau. Ann at 18 or marriage."

  Notes for Francis Faulkner:
[James Williams.FTW]

Claude W. Faulkner reports that Francis Faulkner and his sons began moving about 1760 to the Cape Fear River-Black River area of Cumberland County, North Carolina. The John and Thomas Stanfield families, close friends, lived just across the Cape Fear River.

Claude W. Faulkner says this Francis Faulkner appears on the roster of Captain William Eaton's regiment of Granville County, North Carolina 8 October 1754 and on a list of Granville County taxpayers in 1755. He says also that this Francis Falconer and his brothers in law, Corporal Burton Francis Falconer and Private John Rakes, appear on the roll of Captain Emory's company 6 February 1748/49.

Holly Forkner names a sixth son of Francis, Nathan Faulkner.

James Falkner gives Francis Forkner's date of death as 1794.
