Notes for Charles Dodson:
There is some conflicting information on Charles Dodson, depending on which genealogist you read. I'll give both versions and the reader can decide which is more nearly correct. Some of the discrepancies are the result of new and additional information being made available. Some of the records stored in Richmond, VA were destroyed by fire and most of the available records are church (parish) records.

Charles Dodson, born about 1649, died 2-6-1705 Richmond Co., VA. Married Ann Dodson (Daughter of Benjamine Dodson, who gave his daughter a legacy of land on the James River in Essex Co., Va., May 1652. This joined John Hill Sr.'s land) (This Benjamine probably came from England.) Ann was married, before 1680, to Charles Dodson. Her second marriage was to John Hill, Jr., after Charles' death.

On July 8, Charles Dodson leased land in old Rappahannock Co. Rappahannock Co. became extinct in 1692, being divided into Essex and Richmond counties. Charles Dodson owned land in both counties by resided in North Farnham Parish, Richmond Co., Va., where he became a large land owner.

The records show that from 1680 to 1692 he was busy acquiring land which he and his sons proceeded to improve, and indicated that he had the confidence of his neighbors. We find him witnessing various documents and on several occasions he is named in wills as Executor. In a will of John Lincoln, dictated Dec. 18, 1686, the comment was made in the affidavit of witnesses that the maker of the will "would have no other but Charles Dodson as his executor although several insisted that he have his wife."

Until 1686 the Episcopal Church was the State church in Virginia. All children, regardless of religious affiliation, were required to be baptized by the minister of the church. Dates of birth and names of their parents were recorded in parish registers. The same information was taken of marriages and burials. The church records are preserved. They are available in the Virginia State Library in Richmond, Va.

In the life time of Charles Dodson there were many new imigrants arriving in Virginia from England. They came in boatloads almost every month in the year. More and more settlements were established. By 1700 there were more than 80,000 persons living in the tidewater region of Virginia.

During this time the colony was in almost constant trouble with their ruler, the English government and its representatives. Mainly the colonists objected to the arbitrary action of the colony officials and their ruthless demands.

The ancestry of the Dodsons of Pittsylvania, Halifax, Henry and Patrick Counties, Virginia has definitely been traced back to Charles Dodson of Old Rappahannock County and it seems quite probable that all the early Dodson families of this section of Virginia were descendants of this Charles Dodson.
However, there are a few instances of Dodson men who are mentioned in early records of Virginia who were possibly adventurers and speculators, and who, in all probability, did not become permanent settlers and who did not leave descendants in the American colonies.

Charles Dodson, Sr. is the first of the line of whom we have any record and we are accepting him as the immigrant ancestor, based on family tradition, but without definite proof of his arrival in America. We first find him in Old Rappahannock County where he made a lease of land on 8 July 1680. Rappahannock County became extinct in 1692, being divided into Essex and Richmond Counties. Charles Dodson owned land in both counties but resided in North Farnham Parish, Richmond County, where he became a large landowner.

The records show that from 1680 he was busy acquiring land which he and his sons proceeded to improve, and the indications are that he had the confidence of his neighbors. We find him witnessing various documents and on several occasions he is named as executor of wills. In the will of John Lincoln, dictated 18 Dec. 1686, the comment is made in the affidavit of witnesses that the maker of the will "would have no other but Charles Dodson as his executor although several insisted that he have his wife."

Charles Dodson, Sr. was born c1649 as proven by a deposition sworn in court on 6 March 1699/1700 stating that he was "aged fifty years or thereabouts" (Richmond Co., VA Miscellaneous Record Book Oct. 1699-Sept. 1724, page 4). Charles died in Richmond County in 1704/05, leaving a will in which his wife, Ann, and eight children were named.\\

Charles Dodson, Sr. married Ann (surname unknown) probably about 1678-80. After the death of Charles Dodson, Ann married John Hill. She had remarried by 3 July 1706 on which date John Hill and wife, Anne, executrix of the Last Will and Testament of Charles Dodson, dec'd, petitioned the court for an appraisement of the estate. The court ordered John Rankin, William Smoote, John Mills and Richard White, or any three of them, to meet at the house of John Hill and appraise and inventory the estate and report to the next court (Richmond Co. Order Bk 4, Page 171).

Thomas Dodson brought an action in court "against John Hill marrying the Executrix of Charles Dodson." The action was dismissed by the court on 3 April 1707, "the plaintiff not prosecuting' (Richmond Co., Order Bk 4, page 262). The reason for this court action was not explained.

In his will, Charles Dodson, Sr. bequeathed to his wife, Ann, and to his daughters "moveable estate." To each of his sons, he gave a tract of land with the restriction that the land not be sold out of the Dodson name "except that one brother selleth to another and if no male heir appeareth by none of my sons that then my Daughters may inherit the land." This proviso caused some consternation and problem for those of his sons who later wanted to sell out and leave the area. Several, upon deciding to leave, sold to brothers; one leased to another man "for three natural lifetimes."



       Children of Charles Dodson and Anne Dodson are:

1476 i.   Thomas Dodson, born May 15, 1681 in Old Rappahanock, VA; died November 21, 1740 in Richmond, VA; married Mary Durham August 01, 1701 in VA.

ii.   Lambeth Dodson, born 1689 in Richmond Co., Va.

 
Notes for Lambeth Dodson:
Lambeth was born in the late 1600's in Richmond County Virginia. The births of three of his children are recorded in the North Farnham Parish Register between 1724 and 1734. Thus it is assumed his marriage took place during the early 1720's. His wife was named Sarah and some say she was Sarah Harris, daughter of Philip Harris, and that she may have died on 21 February 1736 as the parish register records such a death for a Sarah. It is not confirmed that this refers to Lambeth's wife, but if so, he quite likely remarried. However, there are no records showing the name of his wife.

Lambeth received by will from his father, Charles Dodson, Sr., his father's
"new dwelling plantation with 100 acres of land belonging to it." Lambeth evidently sold this land to his brother, Thomas Dodson, Sr., before 1739. A deed of conveyance has not been found, but on 17 February 1739 Thomas Dodson, Sr., bequeathed to his son, Greenham Dodson, "the whole tract of land I bought of Lambarth Dodson."

I appears evident that Lambeth left Richmond County before 1739. His whereabouts are unknown for several years. The Old Halifax County Virginia Plat Book 1, page 20 records a plat for 190 acres on Falling Creek for Lambath Dodson, 11 November 1747. In the same book, page 39, is a plat for 400 acres on Sandy Creek, dated 17 February 1755. Falling Creek may have been meant for Fall Creek and both these locations are probably in present Henry and Patrick counties.

Lambeth's name appears on a poll tax list in Halifax County in 1753 taxed for 1 poll over 21 years. The same year, in July 1753, Wm. Bean, John Stone, and Redmon Fallen were ordered to mark a road from Bean's on Dan R. to the Courthouse, and in October they reported the road viewed and marked. Thereupon the court ordered: "Peter Wilson is appointed Surveyor of that part of the road as leads from John Russell's Mill to Fall Creek, and Samuel Harris is appointed Surveyor of that part of the said road as leads from Fall Creek to Sweating's Fork." The surveyors were ordered to open and clear the roadway using the following tithables, who lived in the vicinity of the road: John Russel & Son, William Mobberly, James Duncan, David Lane, George Chadwell, Lambeth Dodson, Thomas Williamson, John Yates, William Stevens, Silvester Junal, Thomas Smith & Son, Isaac Little & Son, Abram Little, Charles Little, William York, James Wady, John Railey, James Cargill, Redmon Fallon & Son (HISTORY OF PITTSYLVANIA COUNTY, VA.,
Clements, page 61).

On 22 June 1765, according to the Pittsylvania County patent book, Lambeth patented 400 acres on the main fork of Mayo River which he transferred to George Gibson on 19 September 1766. Since Lambeth Dodson is found involved in affairs of the Gibson family, it is a probability that his daughter married a Gibson.

The Halifax Patent Book 1, page 121 shows that on 25 August 1775, Lambeth patented 200 acres on the South Fork of Mayo River. This may be the patent for 200 acres issued to him on 1 December 1779, by this time located in Henry County.

Lambeth entered 228 acres in Guilford County, North Carolina on 9 January 1779. It was surveyed 10 June 1779 by Joshua Smith, with William Kellam and Joel Gibson acting as chain carriers. The grant was issued 1 March 1780, 228 acres below and in the fork of Mayo River, beginning at a poplar on the south bank of the North Fork of Mayo in the Virginia line, adjoining Joel Gibson and Philip Angling, and including the improvements of Thomas Gibson and Esaw Dodson. On 9 July 1784, Lambeth Dodson of Henry County, Virginia sold 153 acres of this tract to Zachariah King of Guilford County, North Carolina. Lambeth signed the deed by name. (Guilford deeds 3-212). The remainder of this tract was sold in 1814 by Dodson heirs. It would seem evident that at some point Lambeth Dodson, Jr. took possession of the land and that some of these records may refer to him.

Nothing has been found to indicate when or where Lambeth died, who his possible second wife was, or to prove who his additional children might have been. The births of three of his children were recorded in the North Farnham Parish Register. The others are included with some reservation, but, family records suggest the connection to Lambeth Dodson. There was a George Dodson (Dotson) who may belong to this family. He appeared one time only on Surry County, North Carolina tax lists, in Cleveland's District, assessed for one poll. In the records of Burke County, North Carolina is found mention of George Dodson. On 13 February 1778, William Roberts entered for 200 acres on the north fork of upper Little River including improvements Roberts bought of George Dodson. On 2 January 1779, George Brown entered for 300 acres on the forks of 2nd Little River and Zack's Creek "including improvements George Dodson lives on." (BURKE CO., NC LAND RECORDS (1778), Vol. I, Edith Warren Huggins: taken from the Land Grant Office, Raleigh). Thus, George Dodson was living in Burke Co. in January 1779. Just how long George lived there cannot be determined due to the severe loss of record in Burke County.

There is no record that George Dodson had any children. The first will recorded in the first will book of Carter County, Tennessee is that of George Dotson. His death occurred while the Tennessee territory was the "Territory of the United States of America South of the River Ohio." Before that, the territory was part of North Carolina. The will, dated "June ye 17, 1794," stated simply that his debts were to be paid and "I bequeath my estate to my wife, Elizabeth." It was signed by signature, George Dotson. There was no probate date (Carter County, Tennessee, Wills of Record, June 1794-March 1851, page 1). Nothing else on George Dodson has been found in the records of Carter County or of Washington County from which Carter was formed.

William Russell died between 1775 and 1777 in Pittsylvania VA leaving a will in which he named his daughter, Lucreasy Dodson. This has not been proven, but it is possible that she married into the Lambeth Dodson family. A Russell family lived near Lambeth Dodson.\\
