********************
The following notes were taken verbatim from the Gill Family Homepage. These Gills, Joseph, Stephen, John, and Peter immigrated to Chesterfield County, Virginia (which was cut off from Henrico County); it is not known at this time which was the ancestor of our Joseph Gill, so all the notes are being retained for further research. **See copyright information at the end of the notes.**

In Peter and Robert Gill Their Ascendants and Descendants, by Joseph S. Rowland, Jr. 1986, copy in the Library of Congress, Mr. Rowland offers evidence that at least John Gill, Joseph Gill, and Stephen Gill were original immigrants. Joseph, Stephen, Webster, Peter, Daniel, and John may have been sons of John Gill married to Mary Webster, but it is conceivable that Joseph and Stephen were brothers. They may also have been older children.. Mr. Rowland points out the entry record in Cavaliers and Pioneers, Vol. III, Page 89, a Henrico County Patent stating entry of John Gill, Joseph Gill and Stephen Gill (Chesterfield County was cut off of Henrico). Thanks to Mr. Rowland for this well researched work, and thanks to Martha Holmes for copying this document in the Library of Congress for us! Three Gills were naturalized in Virginia in 1705 by the names of John, Joseph, and Stephen Guil. They were not English, but French Huguenots.

Isaac Guille born before c1656 was alive 1685, and his wife Anna Guille were Huguenots, probably from the Guilles on the Island of Guernsey. Children:

1Magdalene Gill 1John Gill 1Peter Gill 1Stephen Gill 1Joseph Gill
(aka Mary) <(1673-86)-1723 1674 alive 1686 1676-1753 1677-1732
nfi Mary Webster nfi Martha Elizabeth
Children: Children: Children:
Webster Gill Wm Joseph
Peter Gill Joseph Peter d1755
Daniel Gill Robert Jacob
John Gill James William
Amy Francis
Martha Ann

(1These are original immigrants, French Huguenots.) We know about John, Joseph, and Stephen Gill being immigrants. We saw where Charles Cousens was given land to help pay for their passage. 1704. We also have the long list of people who, in 1705, were naturalized. Names were John, Joseph and Stephen GUIL.

We also have the list of Gills that Katherine Elliott had found, dating back to 1685 when Richard Kennon received land for their passage:
Isa Gill, John Gill, Steph Gill, Joseph Gill, Peter Gill, Anne Gill, Mary Gill. (From records of the House of Burgesses).
Today I checked a large book of immigrants, and did find a reference to John Gill. A source reference was given, which was another book that just happened to be at the very same library. Found:

Guille, Anna. wife of Isaac Guille, q.v. Bound for 4 years.
Guille, Isaac, his wife Anna and children Magdalene, John, Peter, Stephen and Joseph. All bound to Augustine Boullay in Virginia.
September 16, 1685. 14/404

Guille, Isaac. Bound for 4 years. See above. Guille, John. Bound for 5 years. See Isaac Guille Guille, Joseph. Bound for 11 years. See Isaac Guille. Guille, Magdalene. Bound for 5 years. See Isaac Guille.
Guille, Stephen. Bound for 7 years. See Isaac Guille.
This seems to be the very same list of people that we figured was ours. But for the first time, we see the relationships listed out. The first book, which was simply an index had them all lined up as son: dau:, etc. I think the Mary Gill on the first list is the Magdalene. With that simple change, it's the exact same list.

So, it would seem that John, Joseph, and Stephen----and Peter, were all brothers! Another generation back in time to Isaac. This group of people sailed from England, and the names are listed in the Record Office in London. Can't wait to hear what you think.

Joseph Gill b<1694 d1732 of Henrico Co., VA, wife Elizabeth.

1721: Peter Gill & Joseph Gill his guardian against Abraham Burton, case of trespass heard by the court in August & 3 following months 1721, Henrico Co. Why was Joseph Gill appointed guardian of a Peter Gill in 1721, and which Peter Gill was this? This Joseph Gill has to be 21, or born on or before 1700. Therefore, this Joseph Gill must be Joseph Gill b<1694 d1732, wife Elizabeth, and this Peter Gill apparently is his son? I do not understand the "guardian" appointment. Maybe this is the Peter Gill brother of Webster and Daniel who was not yet 21. Perhaps his father, whom I believe to have been John Gill married Mary Webster, was either dead, or very ill. This Peter Gill, guardian by Joseph, was therefore born 1701-21 (he was not yet 21 in 1721).

Charles Cousins Dr. 1736. 4 levys. 550 acres, Yr. order to Col. Kennon. Paid." By Dale Parish for Elizabeth Gill 1200 Lb. tobo., by Co. Kennon. (p35 Fleets Colonial Abstracts, V21, Henrico Co., Sheriff's Acct. Book, Henrico Co., S. side of James River).

Joseph Gill of Bristol Parish, Henrico Co., VA, will 19 June 1732-6 Nov. 1732. To wife Elizabeth. To children: Peter Gill, Joseph Gill, Jacob Gill, Francis Gill, William Gill, and Ann Gill. "Land on which I now live to son William when he is 21; reversion to son Francis." Ex'rs: Sons Peter and Joseph. Wit: Wm. Halpin, Wm. Stiles, Mary Bligh. Wills & Deeds, 1735-7, p375. (Mrs. Clark p76)

6 Nov. 1732, will of Joseph Gill of Bristol Parish. Sons Joseph & Peter to be executors and to divide estate between wife Elizabeth and Jacob Gill, Francis Gill, William Gill, and Ann Gill. To son William, the land I live on at 21, and if he die, to son Francis Gill. "Item. I give to my sone William the Land I now live on when arrived to the age of one and Twenty but if it should pleas God that my aforesaid sone should Dye before he should arrive to the age of one and Twenty it is my will and pleasure that my sone Francis Gill shall inherit the said Land which is my last will and Testament." Dated 19 June 1732. Wit: Wm. Halpin, Will Stiles, Mary Bligh. Recorded 6 Nov.1732. (p133 Colonial Wills of Henrico Co., VA, 1677-1737, Weisiger 1976, but quoted text is from Mr. Rowland's book, and from the actual handwritten will.) Clearly William was not yet 21 in 1732, while it would appear that Francis was 21 in 1732, so Francis was born <1711, William between 1711-32. (p133 Colonial Wills of Henrico Co., VA, 1677-1737, Weisiger 1976)

Children in will: Joseph Gill, Peter Gill, Jacob Gill (not explicitly stated as son, just heir), William Gill, & Francis Gill, Ann Gill (explicitly stated as heir not daughter).
