Possession was obtained by Delman Youdaley on the same day. It is to be noted that Delman Youdaley must have had a small family at that particular point in time as his daughter named Frances Youdaley ("Frances Eudaley" & "Frances Eudaly"), later apparently married a Hugh Cavender who would have been about 7 years of age at that particular point in time, and who later began working as one of two overseers on Paulin Anderson's ("Pauling Anderson"?) 2221 acre plantation in Raleigh Parish in Amelia County, Virginia about 1762 when he was about 24 years of age and also had a very young family as his oldest child Joseph Cavender was born about 1760. 393 & COB-189 1745/06/09 James Cavender married Mary Craddock in Portsea, Saint Marys Parish, Hampshire County, England. 399 1745/06/09 James Cavender was baptized in Hampshire County, England.399 1745/11/15 The county court of Amelia County, Virginia empaneled a grand jury comprising 16 men regarding the presentment of the fact that the road from Flatt Creek Church (“Platt Creek Church?”) to the property of Mr. Henry Anderson was out of repair.

He paid 2 tithes (i.e. poll tax on each man who was at least 16 years of age, and on each adult slave). In subsequent years up through 1755, Delman Youdaley paid only 1 tithe and was not shown as a slave owner during the total period. 393
(NOTE: The noun "tithable" when it appears in the 17th or 18th century records in Virginia, refers to a person who paid, or for whom someone else paid, one of the taxes that the General Assembly imposed for the support of the civil government of the colony, usually in the form of a poll tax or a capitation tax. By 1658, persons defined as tithable was either free white males age 16 or older (i.e., not females), plus all male and female Negro slaves and Indian servants, however procured, who were at least 16 years of age. Subsequent laws made the immigrants' descendants tithable also. Slaves and servants did not pay their own taxes; their owners or masters were therefore "tithable" for both themselves and for the their servants and slaves.)

The land was located on Bull Run adjacent to the property of James Smith, brother of Robert Smith and the wife of Thomas Smith, Elizabeth Smith, released her dower rights to the property. Apparently, the land was part of the original grant on June 30, 1712 of 1160 acres originally in Stafford County, Virginia on the North Run of the Occquan River, then in Prince William County, Virginia in 1731 and then in Fairfax County, Virginia in 1742. 393 1747/10/15 John Cavender, and others, were listed as debtors of the estate of William Burston ("William Bornston") in Fairfax County, Virginia by the Administrator, Henry Trenn. It is to be noted that the John Cavender who was the son of Francis Cavender of Richmond County, Virginia is now of record in Fairfax County, Virginia. However still another John Cavender now appears in Richmond County, Virginia. He is probably a first cousin of the first John Cavender, and the son of either David Cavender or William Cavender. Like many in the family, he was bound out to service, but he was married with at least one son by 1762 named James Caviner (“James Cavender”) who he apprenticed to Samuel Harrison of Cople Parish of Westmoreland County, Virginia until he became 21 years of age to learn the art and trade of a shoemaker. 393 & Richmond Cnty.

Both laws provided that no minister was to celebrate a marriage without a lawful license, OR thrice publication of so-called “Banns”. If the bride and groom lived in different parishes, the banns were to be published in both parishes. The bann was just a public announcement of the intent to become husband and wife from that day forward.

1750/02/04 A complaint was filed in the county court of Richmond County, Virginia by John Caverner (“John Cavender”), a servant belonging to William Brown, for so-called “ill usage” from his master. The complaint was adjudged to be reasonable. 393 1750/05/12 Margaret Cox, daughter of George Cox, was born on this date in Virginia near the James River, maybe in Westmoreland County, Virginia where Cavenders were then living. Her father later moved the family to the upper part of North Carolina where she met William Cavender "several years" before they became engaged in 1775-1776 and shortly before the outbreak of the Revolutionary War. The “upper part” of North Carolina had just recently become a State which included Washington County, North Carolina which later became the State of Tennessee.
Her father and William Cavender both joined the North Carolina Militia under General Gates and her marriage to William Cavender was postponed. After the defeat of General Gates in the battle at Camden, both William Cavender and her father returned home. Both William Cavender and George Cox later joined Colonel Cleveland and were at the battle of Kings Mountain. They later were with General Morgan in South Carolina and in the battle of Cowpens where William Cavender received 2 bayonet wounds in the thigh and leg, plus a bullet wound in the calf of his leg. Following the battle of Cowpens, they were pursued by the British and Tories under the command of General Cornwallis during their march toward and across the Catawha River, the Yadkin River, and the Dan River where they were joined by General Green and where William Cavender stayed when the American forces reversed their march in pursuit of the British and Tory troops and subsequently engaged in the battle of Guilford Old Court House.
William Cavender rejoined General Green at Ransays Mills after his wounds healed and was in the second battle of Camden where the Americans were defeated, and he remained with General Green and fought at the Siege of Ninety-Six and at Eutaw Springs where George Cox was killed as witnessed by William Cavender.
The widow of George Cox moved her family to Wilkes County, Georgia. Sometime in the early part of the Spring of 1783, William Cavender arrived at the home of Margaret Cox where they were married on May 12, 1783 in Wilkes County, Georgia, with acting Justice of the Peace, Henry Ware performing the ceremony. In the Spring of 1791, William Cavender died at his sister's house while on his way to North Carolina to obtain his share of the inheritance of his parents who had just died. When Margaret Cavender (“Margaret Cavinder”) was a little over 100 years of age, she applied for a Revolutionary War pension application No. W6903 on August 9, 1850 while residing in Lumpkin County, Georgia, which application was granted. 101, 255 & 281
According to military records, another William Cavender joined the Continental Army in Hillsboro District ("Hillsboro County, New Hampshire") and was granted pension No. 459. Also, a James Cavender joined from the Halifax District ("Halifax County, Virginia"?) and was granted pension No. 141. 101, 102 & 281 1750/05/18 - 1750/06/04 According to “The Report: Board of Trustees of the Public Archives of Nova Scotia for the year ending November 30, 1941", sometime between this time frame, the following persons immigrated to Halifax, Nova Scotia: Mrs. Cavenor (“Mrs. Cavender”?); Charles Cavenor (“Charles Cavender”?); Darby Cavenor (“Darby Cavender”?); Moris Cavenor (“Morris Cavenor”?, “Moris Cavender”? & “Morris Cavender”?); Penelope Cavenor (“Penelope Cavender”?); and, Simon Cavenor (“Simon Cavender”). It is believed that Mrs. Cavenor immigrated with her 5 named children.
1750/05/25John Cavender of Taunton, Bristol County, Massachusetts, married second wife, Mrs. Hannah Caswell, in Taunton, Massachusetts, with Baptist Minister, Isaac Backus performing the ceremony. 231 & 306 1750/07/26 James Cavander ("James Cavender"?) married Anne Williams in Saint George Mayfair Parish, Westminster, England. 140 1750 (1) Isaac Cavender was born on this date, apparently in either Maryland or Delaware. He died in 1825 at the age of 75 years. He may be the same Isaac Cavender who was assessed a so-called "War Tax" in 1783 in the Upper District of Dorchester County, Maryland. 269 & 279
(2) A Charles Cavender was born in Wexford, Ireland in 1750 and arrived in Boston, Massachusetts as early as 1774. On August 30, 1832 he was deposed in Francistown, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, even though he was then living in Greenfield in Hillsborough County, and stated that he was then 82 years old on the date of his affidavit. In 1775, he volunteered to served in the Continental Massachusetts and New Hampshire Rangers as a private in the company commanded by Captain Reach of the regiment commanded by Colonel Starks stationed at Winter Hill. On January 1, 1776, he again volunteered for a period of 1 year. In the fall of 1776, he was ordered to Trenton, New Jersey and was in the battle at that place in December, 1776, and was discharged after having served 6 weeks in addition to the 1 year for which he had volunteered. He again volunteered in the summer of 1777, served 2 months and was in the battle of Bennington. In the early summer of 1778, he again volunteered at Salem, Massachusetts, served for 6 months as a private in Captain James Barry's Massachusetts company. He again volunteered in the early summer of 1781, mustered at Amherst, New Hampshire, under Colonel Nichols, served as a private in Captain David McGregor's company, Colonel George Reid's New Hampshire regiment and was discharged after having served 6 months. He died May 25, 1833 in Greenfield, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire at the age of 82 and where he lived almost 60 years and where his survivors had filed and application No. S17875 or pension which was finally granted October 23, 1832 as Certificate No. 956 and payment of $80 dollars per year was retroactive to March 4, 1831. It is believed that he married the Mrs. Hannah Cavender who died September 29, 1834 at the age of 42 in Antrim, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire. In his affidavit he stated that: in 1775, he was at Winter Hill serving under General Sullivan, Colonel John Stark, at Bennington; in 1777, he served under General Stark, Colonel Stickney and Captain Clark; in 1778, he was at Fusk? under Captain Barry and Colonel Thomas; and, on 1781, he was at Saratoga under Colonel George Reed and Captain David McGregor. As personal references, Charles Cavender listed the names of William Whittemore, Esq. ("William Whitmore" & "William Whitemore"), Paul Cargin, Esq. and Deacon Joshua Holt. A William Dickey, William Ramsey and James Shearer filed affidavits stating that they had served with Charles Cavender in the Revolutionary War.
It is to be noted that it is recorded in the D.A.R. Patriot index that a Charles Cavender was born in Ireland in 1736, married an Elenor Addison ("Elanor Addison", "Elenore Addison" & "Eleanor Addison"?), was a Corporal in the New Hampshire Militia, and died about 1824. However, his stated date of birth is believed to be in error because, according to one IGI record on file in London, England, the particular Charles Cavender who married Eleanor Addison was born in Lyndelboro, Ireland about 1756, and according to another IGI record on file in London, England, a Charles Cavender was born about 1756 in Lyndoboro, New Hampshire. There appears to be no Lyndoboro or Lyndelboro in present day New Hampshire, but there is a town in New Hampshire called Hillsboro and a county called Hillsborough. In any event, the date of birth of 1756 of Charles Cavender corresponds to "THE HISTORY OF HANCOCK, NEW HAMPSHIRE" by W.W. Hayward which states that Charles Cavender came from Ireland to Newfoundland about the year 1775 at the age of 19 years; thus, again, he would have born about 1756 contra 1736. However, the place of birth of New Hampshire is contrary to the stated place of birth of Ireland. 255, 290, 265 & 325
