Notes for EDWARD TIPTON:

 

It is most likely that Jonathan went to Jamaica with the Venables army and after the battles there ended up in Maryland.†† Edward I ,may have been in the shippingbusiness and Jonathan probably was in the business with his father between England and Jamaica. It has been written that Edward came toMaryland at age 60 after retiring.

December 15, 1709.He married (2) MARY CHILCOAT.

 

Notes for JONATHAN TIPTON:

Lived to be 118 years old

 

†† There are many tales and legends of how the Tipton's came to the New World. At first the glamour and excitement of the unknown and greener pastures of some other place may have beckoned.†† Secondly, the political and religious conditions in England became difficult. It is thought that the Tipton's came by Venables Army and by way of Jamaica and some by direct passage from England.

†† According to family tradition, the TIPTON family originated in Scotland. The ancestors left the highlands of Scotland and immigrated to Ireland in early 1600's. Tradition says "Jonathan and William Tipton with other brothers took passage on a ship bound for America; that this ship was attacked on the high seas by the vessels of some American Colonies, and that before the mistake was discovered - the brothers were killed except for Jonathan and William."

†† Jonathan Tipton, Sr. was born at Kingston on the Island of Jamaica circa 1739 according to the Maryland Gazette of January 27th, 1757. It states his age as 118 years at the time of the month (January 1757).The earliest date for Jonathan Tipton, Sr. in Maryland is found in the records of St. James Parish on Herring Creek, Anne Arundel, Maryland. Three sons of Jonathan and Sarah Pierce Tipton were baptized here on the 25th of April 1699, the oldest then being almost six years of age and the youngest just one month old. The spelling of Sarah's surname has been seen many different ways, so it is spelled per the data quoted in all cases. Sarah Pierce, the first wife of Jonathan Tipton, Sr., was the daughter of William Pierce. This fact is proven by two Maryland Court Records (1) the application of Jonathan Tipton for a warrant of land "in his right of his wife, Sarah, the daughter of William Pearce" which was granted on July 11, 1705, and (2) the will of Sarah's brother William Pearce, Anne Arundel County, Maryland September 12, 1719 in which he directs that his nephews, Thomas and William Tipton, serve as overseers of the administration of his will. The Rev. Henry Hall, Witness of the will of William Pearce, was the first rector of St. James' Parish where J Jonathanís children were baptized in 1699. It is very likely that Sarah has died before Jonathan made his application for the warrant in 1705. She had died previous to 15 December 1709, because on this date Jonathan Tipton was married second to Mary Chilcoat.

†† Jonathan Tipton, Sr., first appeared in Baltimore County, Maryland before 1714 and owned 50 acres of land which he called "PORT ROYAL" in remembrance of Jamaica's only port that suffered a horrendous earthquake in 1692, virtually wiping out most of the town and killing hundreds.Here he dealt extensively in land for a period of time. There are many conveyances to his children and his grandchildren - most of them are deeds of gift or for small monetary considerations.

Mary Chilcoat, second wife of Jonathan Tipton, Sr., survived her husband, but was deceased circa 1763 as shown in certain deeds of Thomas Tipton of Baltimore County, Maryland.

From St. James Parish Records of Anne Arundel County, Maryland;

St. Paul's Parish Records of Baltimore County, Maryland and the Tipton History by W. Hord Tipton, the genealogy of the Tipton family is set up to facilitate further research.

†† A study of the history of Jamaica convinces that the immigrants Silvestor, Edward, Jonathan were seamen or soldiers under Robert Venables, Governor of Ireland and General of the forces that captured Jamaica on May 20, 1655. History, however relates that many of the seamen and soldiers remained in Kingston and Port Royal and cultivated the soil thereabouts. Shortly after the fall of Jamaica to the English, the Tipton's appeared in Maryland. First, Silvestor in 1657, second, Edward in 1668 and Jonathan in 1670's. If dates are correct, stating Jonathan born in Jamaica, at least he, maybe others were Spanish subjects for 17 years.

There is a statement referring to a document of 1668 which indicates that Christopher Miller - master of vessel "Friendship of London" assigned to Daniel Jennifer, nine rights of land for the transportation of Edward Tipton and eight others to Maryland. Court Records prove that Tipton's were in Charles Co., Maryland, on the Potomac, in Northumberland County, Virginia, Anne Arundel County, Maryland and Gunpowder River in Baltimore County, Maryland.

Shortly after the fall of Jamaica to the British, the Tipton's began to appear in Maryland and Virginia. First, there was Silveston or Silvester in 1657, Richard, who witnessed the deed of Gibson and Downham 3 December 1666, Third, Edward 1668, Jonathan, the progenitor in 1690's.

†† The English conquered Jamaica from Spain in 1655 and before that time English settlers were not allowed on the island, so that Jonathan Tipton could not have been born in Kingston in 1639, and is believed to have been born in England. March 25, 1699 is the first documented date of his being in the state of Maryland. September 16, 1948 issue of St. Johnsville, New York "Enterpriseand News", gives Jonathan asbeing in the Mohawk Valley Genealogy and History as coming from Bermuda in 1668 to Baltimore Co, Maryland, where he married Sarah Pierce of William Pierce. There is a Jamaica on Long Island. Jonathan dealt extensively in land for a period almost unbelievable for a man his age. Jonathan left Jamaica for Maryland shortly before 1693 after an earthquake there in 1692. He did not die until 21 Jan 1757, in Baltimore County, Maryland, reaching the advanced age on 118 years. He married second Mary Chilcoat of Humphrey Chilcoat 15 December 1709 who died 6 December 1736. Jonathan married third Julianna ______. His original home in Baltimore County, Maryland, "Port Royal" later resided on "Tipton's Puzzle".

††† The first four generations of Tipton's in America were members of and strong supporters of the Anglican-Episcopal Church, the state church of England. There are fourteen (14) towns and cities in America named for the Tipton's, also two counties. Then the Borough of Tipton in Shropshire, England. There is a Tipton Ridge, Tipton Mountain, Tipton Dome, Tipton Corners in Tiptonville, Tennessee. There were at least three hundred fifty (350) officers and enlisted men by the name Tipton in the First World War. There were over 24 cases where they married cousins.

†† The Tipton's were an English family and probably, descendants of Edward and Samuel Tipton, called merchants who operated sailing vessels between England, the Barbadoes, Virginia and Maryland. Edward Tipton was living in Northumberland County, Virginia and married on of the Downings, the widow of Capt. William Downing, and some of his sons are believed to have been of the Baltimore County family from which Jonathan, the father of Col. John Tipton.

The Tipton-Haynes site represents various periods of Tennessee history, from pre-colonial times to Reconstruction. An ancient buffalo trail ran near the site of the "bold spring," and the grounds were frequented successively by the Woodland Indians, the Cherokees, and European explorers and traders.

 

The site's first white resident was Colonel John Tipton, a former member of the Territorial Assembly, U.S. Territory South of the River Ohio, who built a substantial log house in 1784. His career embraced the controversial State of Franklin and early Tennessee statehood. Tipton was also a member of the Tennessee legislature and a signer and a framer of the first Tennessee Constitution. In an area including this site, the Battle of Franklin was fought in 1788, the only armed skirmish between supporters of the proposed state and their opponents, who were loyal to North Carolina. John Tipton, Jr. inherited the home in 1813. He served in the Tennessee General Assembly from 1803 to 1819, and was lieutenant governor and president of the senate for the last of these sessions.

 

Col. John Tipton was a man of many talents as a Statesman, Soldier, and Planter.

There is a monument at his old home the "Tipton-Haynes Place" on the Ashville national highway 1 mile south of Johnson City Tn.

He moved to 9 miles east of Jonesboro then (NC, TN after 6-1-1796) in 1782 and lived there until death in 1813.

20.SARAH ADELINE19 TIPTON (ISAAC18, SAMUEL17, THOMAS16, JOHN15, JONATHAN14, JONATHAN13, EDWARD12, RICHARD11, RICHARD10, EDWARD9, THOMAS8, WILLIAM7, JOHN6, WILLIAM5, JOHN4, WILLIAM3, ANTHONY TIPTON2 JR., SIR ANTHONY1 DE TIPTON) was born August 13, 1862 in Cherokee County, Texas, and died February 17, 1933 in Foard County, Texas.She married JAMES BUCHANAN GRAY July 16, 1878 in Probably Richland, Navarro County, Texas, son of JAMES GRAY and JANE MCDOWELL.He was born July 11, 1858 in Cherokee County, Texas, and died October 15, 1939 in Foard County, Texas.

 

Notes for SARAH ADELINE TIPTON:

also known as "Sallie"

According to a letter forwarded to me at some time in the 1980's, the following was written in 1966, to Fanny T. Webb, my grandmother by Jo Erma Housewright who signed as " your cousin."†† "The Tiptons at Breckenridge are descendents of our Col. John of Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, and Tennessee.The State of Tennessee has bought his old home making it into a Shrine."†† Ms. Housewright was, apparently, a well-known genealogist in Cherokee County.††

 

One of Sarah's sisters married Andrew Paine who was a Justice of the Peace in Navarro County, TX. in 1897.Grandmother Fanny revealed on the tape made in 1976 that she and Wilson were married at her home in Navarro County, she thought in Richland by "my uncle...mother's brother in law...his name was Andrew Paine."They then lived with her parents, the Grays.She also said that she became acquainted with Wilson when he worked for her father.

Notes for JAMES BUCHANAN GRAY:

Letter from Ysleta Heale June 5, 2002 "...but nothing could compare with Granddad Gray's annual birthday parties. Entire community turned out for the pot luck affair, the highlights being making ice cream in that huge ice cream freezer and waiting impatiently to get some.The happiest of all happy times..."

 

According to Doris Webb Mann, in a letter some years ago, James Gray's sister "had enough Indian heritage to get in on the land claim in Oklahoma.My Grandmother Gray certainly had a very few gray hair in the temples when she died at 71 years.Grandad Gray was very much Irish in looks. "Her grandfather would have been James B. Gray.Her grandmother Gray was Sarah Adeline Tipton.James B. Gray's father was John Gray according to records I have.His mother was Jane J. McDowell.The surname McDowell could be either Irish or Scots.There is no evidence that there is any indian heritage.

 

James Buchanan was the 15th President of the United States 1857-1861He took office the year before James was born.It is likely that he was named for the President.

 

 

Beverly Williamson (descended from Malissa Helen) wrote, "James may havecame to Navarro Co because of his sisters Malissa lived inPursley ,Navarro Co.and Cassenia lived across Pin Oak Creek at Pisgah Ridge,Navarro Co.Malissa was widowed in 1877And Cassenia in 1874. both had young children . He may have come here to help them.???I would like to think they were all close.Cassenia & Malissa was married to brothers. I have found court records that Malissa's son in law tried to get the land and minor children??? just aguess. There is paper's on the family in Jacksonville,Cherokee Co, Texas library."
