BENNETT1 TUCK

Notes for BENNETT TUCK:
this parentage is an educated supposition - not yet confirmed.

The following is taken from the beginning of Aletha Jane Macon's book "John and Edward Tuck of Halifax County, Virginia and some of their descendants" You will find it referenced as source for the greater number of entries in this accounting - The book is now out of print and even contacting the publishing company did not help - I have lost touch with her descendants who had been selling it at individual requests - but they have moved or moved on and I cannot find them -

I did not do the following typing - this is pasted in from an entry on the MYFAMILY.com Tuck website - - In Aletha's book, there is a lot of room for supposition - I did not take the view that Bennett was married to Cary

Descendants of BENNETT TUCK


Generation No. 1

1. BENNETT(1) TUCK was born 1710 in ENGLAND, HALIFAX, VA. He married CARY UNKNOWN.

Notes for BENNETT TUCK:

THE TUCK'S WERE EARLY JAMESTOWN, VA. SETTLERS. THEY CAME FROM ENGLAND ON THE SHIP "ASSURANCE" IN 1635. THEY WERE FIRMLY SETTLED IN HALIFAX COUNTY BY 1750. WOODHAM TUCK IS THE EARLIST KNOWN TUCK TO ARRIVE IN AMERICA. AT THIS TIME WE CANNOT LINK HIM DIRECTLY TO BENNET OR JOHN, BUT HE IS BELIEVED TO BE CLOSELY RELATED, ALONG WITH ROBERT 1641; JAMES 1650; AND THOMAS 1719.

*****

THE TUCK'S OF VIRGINIA ARE DESCENDENTS FROM AN ANCIENT ENGLISH FAMILY CHIEFLY OF THE COUNTY OF KENT, BUT ALSO OF LONDON AND NORWICH. TODAY PERSONS OF THAT NAME ARE FOUND THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE OF ENGLAND, ESPECIALLY IN LONDON, WHERE NUMEROUS PAGES OF THE TELEPHONE DIRECTORY ORE REQUIRED TO LIST THE TUCK SUBSCRIBERS.

THE EARLIST APPEARANCE OF THE NAME IS FOUND IN A GRANT TO CROYLAND MONASTERY IN 1052. FIVE CENTURIES LATER, IN 1510, SIR BRIAN TUCK, SON OF RICHARD TUCK, WAS CLERK OF THE COUNCIL OF CALAIS AND LATER SECRETARY TO CARDINAL WOLSEY AND HENRY VIII, KING OF ENGLAND. HIS DAUGHTER MARRIED A MEMBER OF THE ROYAL GUARD UNDER THE DUKE OF NORFOLK, IN THE REIGN OF QUEEN ELIZABETH. ANOTHER RICHARD TUCK, A GREAT-GREAT-GREAT-GRANDSON OF JOHN TUCK, COUNTY OF KENT, WAS GRANTED A COAT-OF-ARMS.

IN 1649, ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT FIGURES IN VIRGINIA WAS LORD CULPEPPER, A KINSMAN AND COMPANION-IN-ARMS OF COLONEL SAMUEL TUCK. THIS TUCK IN 1661 WAS THE AUTHOR OF A PROPOSAL FOR THE REGISTRATION OF PLANRETS AND SERVANTS OR SLAVES IN COLONIAL PLANTATIONS, WHICH WAS DEBATED IN A MEETING OF THE PRIVY COUNCIL.

IN THE SEVENTEENTH CENTURY, MANY TUCK'S MIGRATED FROM THE OLD COUNTRY TO THE COLONIES. ROBERT TUCK, A CHIRRURGEON, VINTER AND TAILOR, CAME IN 1636 FROM SULFOLK COUNTY TO SETTLE FIRST IN MASSACHUSETTS, LATER IN NEW HAMPSHIRE WHERE HE FOUNDED A MUMEROUS FAMILY. AMOUNG THOSE OF THE NAME WHO CAME TO VIRGINIA IN THE EARLY YEARS WERE; WOODHAM TUCK IN 1642; ANN TUCK IN 1652; AND WILLIAM AND ROBERT TUCK IN 1657, WHO HAD HEADRIGHTS OF 730 ACRES OF LAND, EACH IN NEW KENT COUNTY. NOTHING FURTHER IS KNOWN OF THESE EARLY VIRGINIA SETTLERS, AS THE RECORDS OF THE TIDE-WATER COUNTIES WERE ALMOST COMPLETELY DESTROYED IN THE WAR BETWEEN THE STATES.

WE DO KNOW THAT JOHN AND EDWARD TUCK, AND A THOMAS TUCK, WHO MAY HAVE BEEN A BROTHER, APPEARED IN HALIFAX COUNTY, VIRGINIA ABOUT THE TIME IT WAS CUT OFF FROM LUNDENBURG IN 1752, AQUIRED LAND, ESTABLISHED HOMES, AND REARED LARGE FAMILIES, THE DESCENDENTS OF WHOM ARE NOW SCATTERED THROUGHOUT OUR NATION.

THAT THESE BROTHERS CAME TO HALIFAX COUNTY FROM ONE OF THE TIDEWATER COUNTIES IS CERTAIN, BUT THE LENGTH OF THEIR RESIDENCE THERE IS IN DOUBT. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THEY ARE DESCENDENTS OF THE WILLIAM OR THE ROBERT WHO SETTLED IN NEW KENT IN 1657. A FURTHER THEORY IS THAT THEY ARE COUSINS OF A GRANDSON OF ROBERT TUCK OF NEW HAMPSHIRE, WHO IS SAID TO HAVE COME TO VIRGINIA. THE REMARKABLE SIMILARITY OF THE GIVEN NAMES FOUND IN THE MASSACHUSETTS AND VIRGINIA FAMILIES AND THE PRESENCE IN BOTH OF THE UNUSUAL NAME, MARSTON, WOULD INDICATE A CLOSE RELATIONSHIP. A FAMILY TRADITION, WHICH HAS BEEN FOUND EXISTING IN WIDELY SEPERATED GROUPS OF DESCENDENTS THROUGHOUT THE SOUTH, IS THAT JOHN AND EDWARD TUCK, WITH THEIR PARENTS AND OTHER MEMBERS OF THE FAMILY CAME DIRECTLY FROM ENGLAND. BY MANY, THEY ARE BELIEVED TO HAVE SETTLED IN WHAT IS NOW KING WILLIAM COUNTY, WHERE MOST OF THEM ARE SAID TO HAVE REMAINED WHEN THE BROTHERS LEFT TO MAKE THEIR HOME IN HALIFAX. SUCH UNUSAL NAMES AS BENNET, CARY AND JOSIAH ARE FOUND IN THE EARLY RECORDS OF BOTH THE KING WILLIAM AND THE HALIFAX TUCK'S, SUPPORTING THE BELIEF THAT THE TWO FAMILIES HAVE A COMMON ORIGIN.

WHILE IT HAS NOT BEEN PROVED, BUT IT IS THE OPINION OF MANY THAT THE FATHER OF JOHN AND EDWARD ( AND PROBABLY THOMAS TUCK ) WAS ONE BENNET TUCK. IT IS SAID THAT MANY OLDER MEMBERS OF THE FAMILY IN VIRGINIA HAVE FOR YEARS MAINTAINED THIS BELIEF. THAT THERE WAS A PERSON OF THAT NAME WHO COULD HAVE BEEN THE FATHER IS PROVED BY A NOTE IN THE JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF BURGESSES ON JUNE 6, 1740 IN WHICH ONE BENNETT TUCK WAS MENTIONED. THE NAME OF
HIS WIFE DOES NOT APPEAR, BUT THE FREQUENT USE OF THE NAME CARY IN SUBSEQUENT GENERATIONS MIGHT INDICATE THAT SHE WAS A MEMBER OF THAT FAMILY. ****This is where I did NOT put in that Cary was Bennett's wife - use your own interpretation****

THIS BENNETT TUCK MAY HAVE BEEN THE SAME AS THE BENNETT TUCK, SR. WHO IN 1776, WITH STEPHEN AND ANDREW WADE AND GILBERT AND ANDREW HUNT, SIGNED A COMMUNICATION FROM HALIFAX COUNTY TO THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY (PETITION OF 1776---ARCHIVES DIVISION, VIRGINIA STATE LIBRARY). THE NAME OF BENNETT HAS THROUGHOUT THE YEARS BEEN A POPULAR ONE IN THE TUCK FAMILY. IN THE LINE OF JOHN TUCK ALONE, AT LEAST ONE OF THAT NAME HAS BEEN FOUND IN EVERY GENERATION DOWN TO THE PRESENT, A BENNETT TUCK HAVING BEEN BORN IN GEORGIA IN 1951.

THAT THEY WERE BROTHERS OF JOHN AND EDWARD TUCK IS PROBABLE. ONE OF THE MOST LIKELY, AS BEEN SUGGESTED BEFORE, IS THOMAS TUCK, WHO SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN THE FIRST TO ARRIVE IN HALIFAX, AND LATER BECAME SECURITY TO JOHN TUCK WHEN HE WAS MADE EXECUTOR TO THE WILL OF EDWARD TUCK IN 1781. THERE WAS A BENNETT TUCK WHO SERVED IN THE REVOLUTIONARY ARMY TH THE COMPANY OF CAPTAIN WILLIAM MOSELEY, 7TH VIRGINIA REF. (PAYROLL W.D.156,9 ). IT IS POSSIBLE THAT IT WAS HE, WITH A CARY TUCK, WHO APPEARED IN THE CENSUS ROLLS OF KING AND QUEEN COUNTY IN 1783 TO 1838 AND RECORDS OF KING WILLIAM COUNTY IN 1806 AND 1802, RESPECTIVELY. A JOSHIA TUCK FIGURED IN KING WILLIAM RECORDS FROM 1799 TO 1838 AND AN EDWARD TUCK FROM 1779 TO 1808. FINALLY, IN OLD KING WILLIAM HOMES AND FAMILIES (CLARK) IS A REFERENCE TO HANNAH CARY TUCK WHO IN 1809 MARRIED GEORGE BUTLER POLLARD AND WAS THE DAUGHTER OF COLONEL CARY TUCK OF THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR PERIOD.

SINCE ALL THESE TUCK'S----THOMAS, BENNETT, CARY AND JOSIAH, WERE CONTEMPORARIES OF JOHN AND EDWARD, AMONG WHOSE DESCENDENTS IN HALIFAX, THEIR NAMES CONSTANTLY RECUR, IT DOES NOT SEEM UNREASONABLE TO SURMISE THAT THEY WERE BROTHERS.

ALTHOUGH MANY TUCK'S MIGRATED TO AMERICA IN THE EARLY DAYS AND SETTLED ALONG THE ATLANTIC SEABOARD, OUR BRANCHES LANDED IN JAMESTOWN AND THEN MIGRATED WESTWARD STEP BY STEP TO WHAT IS TODAY HALIFAX AND MECKLENBURG COUNTIES NEAR VIRGILINA, VA.

About Halifax County, VA
Halifax County, located in Southside Virginia, was created in 1752 from Lunenberg County and named for the British statesmen George Montagu Dunk, Earl of Halifax. At the time of its creation, its territory included what is today Pittsylvania, Patrick and Henry counties and parts of Franklin and Floyd counties. Its present-day boundaries were established in 1766 when Pittsylvania County was created from the western portion of the county. In addition to the Virginia counties of Pittsylvania, Charlotte, Campbell and Mecklenberg, Halifax County is also bordered by the North Carolina counties of Caswell, Person and Granville.1,2

Numbers of Halifax County families joined the great western migration out of Virginia in the period after the Revolutionary War. The destination of many were the Middle Tennessee counties of Davidson, Sumner, Smith, Williamson, Rutherford, Wilson, Overton and Maury.3

Present-day Halifax County covers an area of 800.41 square miles with a poplation of over 37,000. The county is mostly rural with the towns of Clover, Halifax, Scottsburg, South Boston and Virginila within its borders.2 The once-independent city of South Boston, with a population of over 7,000, reverted to town status in July 1995.4

Church Parishes in Halifax County, VA





The established Church in Colonial Virginia was the Church of England. As in England, parishes were "local units of ecclesiastical and community organization".1 The Virginia General Assembly, through legislation, created parishes and defined their boundaries. Although the Church of England was dis-established as the official Church following the American Revolution and most of the duties of the vestry turned over to county officials, the parishes continued in existence. The parish boundaries were also used as geographic designations with the residence of parties to deeds being given by parish and county.

Antrim Parish was formed at the creation of Halifax County in 1752 and their boundaries were identical. When Pittsylvania County was cut off from Halifax County in 1767, the boundaries of Antrim Parish remained identical to the boundaries of Halifax County.

Halifax County, VA Historical Tidbits
Halifax, county seat since 1800, changed its name in 1890, from Banister to Houston in honor of a railroad executve who was to be asked to send factories into the town. Unfortunately, the committee sent to NY to tell the magnate about the honor they had done him, mispronounced his name, and the town received no largesse. In 1920, the town went back to its designation as the county town of Halifax County, named for the Earl of Halifax. The first county seat was at Peytonsburg, now in Pittsylvania Co.

I recently received a number of forwarded messages from Brenda, all related to TUCK family and including email addresses for each of you, so thought I would respond to all of you at one time.

The TUCK family has had numerous Phaltiel's; to confuse the issue, for those of you who have access to Macon's book, it does not include the two most recent Phaltiel Franklin TUCKs.

Starting with John TUCK, b1730, three of his children are involved in the following description of a number of Phaltiel TUCKs:
Edward "Ned" TUCK b. 10 Dec 1762 who md Nancy WINFREY;

Mary TUCK b. 12 Jan 1765 who md Nathan FLETCHER;

and Richard TUCK b. 29 Dec 1795 who md Mary Jane DEWBERRY.

Phaltiel TUCK, son of Ned TUCK, b. 27 Jan 1800, d. 1865, md 1) Sarah Catherine TUCK, his 1st cousin, dau of Richard TUCK. He later md 2) Lucy P. SEAT and 3) Larcany/Lurena DANIEL.

Phaltiel Winfield Scott TUCK, b. 19 Jul 1833, d. 7 Nov 1882, was the son of Phaltiel and Sarah Catherine TUCK. Powell TUCK, son of Ned TUCK, b. 26 Dec 1787, d. Jan 1859, md 1) Mary FLETCHER, his 1st cousin, dau of Mary TUCK and Nathan FLETCHER. He md. 2) Edney Willingham.

Phaltiel Franklin TUCK, b. 14 Sep 1834, d. 4 Jan 19ll, was the son of Powell and Edney. He md. Caroline WILLIAMSON who was probably the niece of Edney.

Paul TUCK, son of Ned TUCK, b. 18 Mar 1793, d. 19 Aug 1865, md Nancy TUCK, his 1st cousin, dau of Richard TUCK.
Phaltiel Monford TUCK was one of their sons, b. 17 Dec 1827, d. 9 Jul 1862.

Richard Thomas TUCK, son of Paul and Nancy TUCK, b. 3 Sep 1824, d. 18 Nov 1888, is erroneously listed in Macon's book as Thomas TUCK who died as a young adult. Actually he left VA and went to TN and then KY. He md. Sarah Elizabeth Jones TUCK, b. 18 Feb 1832, d. after 1915, his 1st cousin, the dau of Powell TUCK and Edney WILLINGHAM. Macon was unaware of this marriage.

Phaltiel Franklin TUCK, son of Richard and Sarah TUCK, b. 15 Jul 1855,d. 26 Feb 1918, md. Alice Susan ORANGE and later moved to Bollinger Co, MO.

Phaltiel Franklin TUCK, son of Phaltiel Franklin and Alice TUCK, b. 5 Apr 1888, d. about 1980, md. Mary GRIMES.

Emulus Pendleton TUCK, son of Paul and Nancy TUCK, b. 4 Apr 1817, md. Balsora TUCK, his 1st cousin, dau of Edward TUCK and Margaret DEWBERRY, gdau of Ned TUCK.

Phaltiel E. A. TUCK, son of Emulus and Balsora, b. 11 Jan 1847, md. Ellen HEDDERLY.

There may well have been other Phaltiels, these are some of the earlier ones in VA, TN, KY and MO who are descendants of Ned TUCK. As many of us have noted, marriages between 1st cousins were common in the family in the 1800s.

Some of the information above comes from Macon's book. A word of caution--just as I found erroneous info in my line, others have found inaccurate data there as well. The data given on Powell TUCK's descendants has been verified at least with family records and in some cases with official records.

Hope this helps; a great many people have confused Phaltiel Franklin TUCK who md Caroline WILLIAMSON with the Phaltiel Franklin TUCK of the next generation who md Alice Susan ORANGE.

My own family line includes both Ned TUCK and Richard TUCK, sons of John TUCK, as my 4th great grandfathers. Powell TUCK, his brother Paul TUCK and Richard's dau Nancy TUCK were all 3rd great grandparents. Sarah Elizabeth Jones TUCK and Richard Thomas TUCK were 2nd great grandparents; Phaltiel Franklin TUCK and Alice Susan RANGE were my great grandparents. Their oldest dau, Icy Aldora TUCK, md George Frederick BUCHNER, my grandparents. Aldora BUCHNER, their dau, is my mother, still living at age 98; my father was Harold Cecil LORENZ. Interestingly enough, there was no family record of Richard, Paul and Nancy TUCK, although the actual TUCK name came down through Paul's son. I suppose it was because it was the Powell TUCK line that moved to TN, KY, MO, and also Richard Thomas TUCK died at least 27 yr before his wife Sarah E.J. TUCK. Early genealogical work in the family, using Macon's book easily identified Sarah as a TUCK ancestor, but it took a while to connect her Thomas TUCK who had died, with the Richard Thomas TUCK who actually moved west!

Paddy - Brenda - I am finally getting a bit of time to get caught up just a bit - I had been too focused on getting Aletha's book typed in figuring it would be easier to edit that way - HUH!!! - I am going to be bald and committed - why did I ever pick genealogy to RELAX???

When I try to correct the date I have for Richard Tuck - son of John - per your information below - it comes out that he is about 20 years older than his siblings and his mother would have been over 50 when he was born ??? The date I have for the Richard - son of John & Mary is July 12, 1773 - I did have him married to Mary Jane Unknown . With Nancy - Asa - Sara - Alfred - Elizabeth - Richard Jr. - Mary Jane - Jane - John - David -& Munford (which is the right spelling - Monford or Munford? - (Poor woman - I guess she never could see her feet - her belly was always in the way!)

I am going to leave the birth date I have in there and keep on plugging - will you please let me know what to do - I trust you tow explicitly as great sources! Thank you

Their oldest dau, Icy Aldora TUCK, md George Frederick BUCHNER, my grandparents. Aldora BUCHNER, their dau, is my mother, still living at age 98; my father was Harold Cecil LORENZ. Interestingly enough, there was no family record of Richard, Paul and Nancy TUCK, although the actual TUCK name came down through Paul's son. I suppose it was because it was the Powell TUCK line that moved to TN, KY, MO, and also Richard Thomas TUCK died at least 27 yr before his wife Sarah E.J. TUCK. Early genealogical work in the family, using Macon's book easily identified Sarah as a TUCK ancestor, but it took a while to connect her Thomas TUCK who had died, with the Richard Thomas TUCK who actually moved west!
