James JOPLING, Son of THOMAS, on 1820 Albermarle, CO, VA Census, lived 3 houses from Thomas JEFFERSON, grandfather of the President. Early tax records show Peter JEFFERSON, John FARRAR, Ralph JOPLING as neighbors on the Rockfish, a tributary of the James River, untill their deaths - JOPLIN - JOPLING FAMILES Note: Henrico County, formed from the original shire in 1638, was subdivided into several smaller counties, Goocland was cut off from Henrico in 1727; Albemarle Charlottesville area was cut off Goochland in 1744. Peter JEFFERSON, the third or fourth settler to the Albemarle area, is thought to have moved there about 1737 Thomas JEFFERSON,s sketch of his family firstland patent for the area, dated 1727. \\\\\\
Thomas JOPLING son of THOMAS, moved to KANAWHA County, now West Viginia.
Ralph Joplin descend came to Pettis County Missouri . I belive this family is family of Robert Joplin , they were all from Virginaia and they all live close to each other. They all were in N.C. at the same time, all had same names. And they all lived in county's close by, this is the way I have found them before and after they left North Carolina. It seem that there one from every line that seem to follow the, other line of Jopling - Joplin. I, feel sure that, Robert Joplin who lives at Wilson TN, and who is Allen G. Joplin father are eather brother of Mark Jr or a, cousin to him at this time don't no which. But most every thing point's to brother.

There is many storys out of this book in this family history. connections are strong ( With Robert Joplin family from WAKE CO,NC. I wanted everyone who our descandents of Robert and Jane Joplin to no how I, found the story of there life and how closes they had with the Ralph Joplin family line.) and I hope that I do them just. Iam sure there will be some that are not, the way some think that it go's but, there is room for there story's also. I, can not tell this Robert & Jane Joplin line with out the story of Ralph Joplin line. I live in Kansas and I, have been to Moniteau County many times. I have found that it is only 25miles from Pettis County,MO and Moniteau County,MO. Moniteau County, is in the boot hills of the Ozarks and a very pretty town. In no way is this ment to be a copy right story only what I, see.
When I, read the Book about the Joplin / Jopling, Ralph Joplin story I was so confused when i first read this book because i new not one thing about Ralph Joplin. I, could not understand how some of the Ralph Joplins family that i had found with my Robert Joplin where not family. They lived right next door hope this will help you understand what iam trying to understand and that why some of the pages from this book is in this home page.
There still many of Robert and Jane Joplin descendants liveing around Moniteau County and Pettis County as well as Ralph Joplin descendants.
Dorothy Jopling Eason wrote a good book on the Joplin / Jopling There could be some erros but she never had our Robert Joplin family.

Robert Jopling***** The only other Jopling family that we ( Eason) have found in America at this time was that of Robert Jopling of North Carolina. His sons were James and Mark. .
Among the English records we ( Eason) found only one Mark Jopling, who died in Esh parish of Lanchester, in 1719. However, beginning in 1613, Nov 14th, we find many records of the name Robert there.

1719 May 25 Mark Joplin buried.
1722 May 30 Mary wife of Robert Jopplin buried.
it seem very likely that this North Carolina family came from Esh,parish Lanchester.
Only three times did we ( Eason) find a James mentioned in the English records. The two in Newcastle were probably one and the same.

When ever we( Eason) found Jopling in England we found the name Robert but Robert of North Carolina seems most likely to have descended from one of the above mentioned families. In 1768 was living in Johnston Co,. N.C. which was intermingled with Caswell, Caldwell, Orange, Wake and Granville Counties during those years of frequent boundary changes. Benjamin and William, sons of Ralph Jopling II were living in this same general area by the late 1780's.

I will send you info I have on Robert Joplin. He was around the same age as Ralph I's two sons. All three died around the same time. If Robert was not on of his son's he was close to Ralph I's family. In 1752 Robert Joplin was a land owenr in Halifax CO. N.C. He was listed as a land owner in Johnston in 1758. Listed in Edcomb Co. in 1758. He was in Edcomb Parish of Halifax Co., in 1785.
SOURCE: WILL & DEED BOOKS : WAKE COUNTY, N.C 1781
On June 5, 1781 Robert & Jean or Jane gave Mark Joplin a deed to some Land. 150 In October 14, 1785 he gave his plantation house, land and orchard to James with the understanding that Robert and his wife could live there the rest of their lives. \\
Robert and his cousin Thomas Gill were surveying land with John Haywood. They surveyed land for John Grimsley in 10-4-1754. They surveyed for several land owners. I think that some how Robert was closely related to Mordicah Mobley. They farmed together for years. In 1768 Mordicah Mobley gave or sold 300 acres to Robert Joplin. Mark,s will listed his plantation had 150 acres. It would seem that Mark and James both received 150 acres from Robert. I have seen a family tree that listed Robert wife as a Mobley. I belive it but have no proof. I think the boys were given land when they married.

The Jopling s etc. all came from the south of Northumberland and the north of County Durham. The first reference I have is to a Robert Joplyn in 1499 who was then renting land in the south of Northumberland Newburn - see http://uk.multimap.com/howto.htm ). Jop was a knickname meaning fool or jester and ~ lin` is little one - in the sense of ~ son of ` . A large branch of the Joplings were baptists and founded the baptist church in the north. \
A John Jopling lead a rebellion againts the parliament who were keeping the baptists from worshipping - in the 1600's. The first Joplings to go to the USA in the 1600's were escaping persecution because of their baptist faith.
