  Notes for Samuel Nuckolls:
From NKW Nuckolls Web Page: Posted by Neil Shelton on June 15, 1998:

Neil discovered an unrecorded will for Samuel Nuckolls in Louisa County, VA. In the will Samuel list his executors as his son-in-law Peter Shelton and "my beloved brother James Nuckolls". Neil also found evidence that Samuel was born in 1702 in New Kent County, VA and James was also born there in 1695.

The will was discovered in a small volume entitles "Wills not Fully Proved" which consisted of such wills from the period between 1757 and 1905. The book consists of photocopies of the originals wills and contains the signatures on Samuel, James II, Peter Shelton and Thomas Shelton. The bond date on the will is August 23, 1757. The signatures are also dated 1757 but the month and day is illegible.

Charles Yancey and Miss (Mary?) Bartlett
About 1675-1745

The earliest valid documentation of a YANCEY is found on a list of land owners called a Quit Rent Roll. In 1704 Charles Yancey is listed on the Quit Rent Roll for King William County, Virginia owning 100 acres. The actual relationship of this Charles to the immigrant brothers is not clear. However, if the story of the brothers is true, he would most likely be a grandson to one of the five. Most researchers are also in agreement that around 1704, a Charles Yancey married Miss Bartlett. Some sources record her name as Mary. It would seem that Charles and Mary continued living in the area that would later become Hanover and Louisa Counties, formed in 1720 and 1742 respectively. These counties were formed from New Kent and King William Counties. One source records their marriage on January 14, 1704, although no known documentation exists to support this claim.

Family tradition has it that Charles of King William County was the son of an earlier Charles Yancey and his wife Mary Leighton. It has also been reported that Mary Leighton was thought to be a descendant of Alexander Leighton who was cruelly persecuted for his religious teachings. However, after centuries of searching, no evidence has been found to confirm or even support the above information. It should not be considered true until such documentation is discovered.

In 1722 Charles of King William County and his wife Mary Bartlett lived and owned land between North Anna and Little River. Charles later received land grants totaling 448 acres in Hanover County. These grants were issued on behalf of King George II between 1725 and 1730. The last date Charles was known to be alive was 1745 when he deeded a Negro slave to his son Robert. No will has ever been found for Charles but it is believed he died shortly after the deed of 1745. There has been very little information recorded about Mary Bartlett. No birth or death dates are known for her. She did, however, raise a large family. Mary gave birth to seven sons: John, Jechonias, Robert, Richard, James, Archelaus, and Charles.
