(VI) JAMES CAVENDER, SR. born about 1739 in Maryland?, married Jane Conner (sometimes "Jane Connor" & “Jane Cannon”?) in Dorchester County, Maryland, and died in October 1792.

James Cavender apparently was living in Spring Garden, in Spring Garden Addition? and in Thomas' Addition ("Thomas Addition"), both located in Dorchester County, Maryland from about 1756 to about 1758. On March 17, 1769, he purchased from James Smith a tract of land located on the borders of Dorchester County, Maryland containing 108 acres and known as “Smith’s Folly”.302 In 1769, he was surety for Kendal Jacobs ("Kendall Jacobs"?). In 1773, he was a witness to a legal document of Thomas Cannon ("Thomas Connor"?) in Dorchester County, Maryland. He enlisted as a private in the Revolutionary War on May 27, 1777, was made corporal on March 1, 1777, made sergeant January 1, 1778. Apparently Jane Connor ("Jane Conner"?) was the daughter and administratrix of the estate of Sarah Connor ("Sarah Conner"?) whose Last Will and Testament was probated April 17, 1761 (some say April 17, 1796 269) in Kent County, Delaware and whose husband, Thomas Connor? ("Thomas Conner"?), had predeceased her. Jane Cavender's Last Will and Testament was executed October 16, 1788 and probated October 24, 1792. Although there were other heirs named in her will, only the following names were legible: James , Thomas, Charles John and Mary. The Last Will and Testament of James Cavender, Sr. read:

Actually, the Last Will and Testament of the above James Cavender, Sr. read as follows:

In the name of God Amen. I James Cavender Senior of Sussex County in the State of Delaware, Planter, being of sound mind, memory and understanding, do make publish this and declare this my Last Will and Testament, in manner and form following viz

First of all, I give and bequeath unto my son James Cavender one shilling sterling for his full part of my estate and money & no more;

Also, I give and bequeath unto my son Thomas Cavender one shilling sterling for his full part of my estate & no more;

Also, I give and bequeath unto my son Charles Cavender one shilling sterling for his full part of my estate & no more;

Also, I give and bequeath unto my son Henry Cavender one shilling sterling for his full part of my estate & no more;

Also I give and bequeath unto my daughter Mary Cannon my best feather bead (“bed”), furniture and bedstead, one large puter (“pewter”) dish and half a dozen new pewter plates, one large iron pot, and one cow & calf or yearling and likewise? my larger chest to her and her heirs forever;

Also, I give and bequeath unto my son David Cavender all the residue or remainder of my personal estate to him and his heirs forever.

Also I do hereby nominate and appoint my son David Cavender executor of this my Last Will and Testament hereby revoking all former Will and Wills by me heretofore made.

In Witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and Seal this sixteenth day of October in the year of our Lord, one thousand seven hundred and eighty-eight.

Signed, sealed, published and declared by the above named James Cavender as and for his Last Will and Testament in the presence of us who have hereunto subscribed our names as witnesses thereto in the presence of the Testator and in the presence of each other.

Signed: James Cavender, George Cannon, Newton Cannon & Robert Juett (“Robert Jewett”?) who was the brother to Betsey Cannon (“Elizabeth Cannon”).

Note the fact that James Cavender apparently personally signed his signature. As his signature is quite difficult to read, he apparently did spell his name corrctly. As his signature is quite shaky, it probably was either very sick or of advanced age. This is quite unusual as most Cavenders during that time frame signed their name with an “x”.



The Testamentary Bond was posted by David Cavender and Newton Cannon about October 24, 1792 which stated:

Suffex County ss, Know all men by these presents, that we David Cavender of the county aforesaid, yeoman, and Newton Cannon of the same county, yoeman, are held and firmly bound unto the Delaware State, in the sum of five hundred pounds of lawful money of said state, to be paid for and use of the same, to which payment well and truly be made and done, we bind ourselves, our heirs, executors and administrators, jointly and sevraly, firmly by these presents. Sealed with our seals, and dated the twenty fourth day of October one thousand seven hundred and ninety two. The condition of the above obligation is such, that if the above bounden David Cavender, executor,l of the last will and testament of James Cavender late of the county of Sussex, deceased, do make, or cause to be made a true and perfect inventory of all and singular the goods, chattels, and credits which were of the said deceased, at his death, which have, shall, or may come to the hands or possession of him the said David Cavender or in the hands or possessions of any other person or persons, for him and the same so do exhibit or cause to be exhibited into the Register’s Office of the county aforesaid, on or before the thenty fourth day of January next ensuing: And the same goods chattels and credits; and all other goods, chattels and credits, of the said deceased, which at any time after shall come to the hands or possession of him the said David Cavender or to the hands or possession of any other person or persons whatsoever, for him do well and truly administer according to law; and further shall make, or cause to be made, a true and just account of his said administration, on or before the twenty fourth day of October next ensuing. All the rest and residue of the goods, chattels and credits of the said deceased, which shall be found remaining on the said executors account, the same being first examined and allowed by the Orphan’s Court for the county aforesaid, shall deliver and pay, distribute and dispose of, according to the tenor and effect of the last will and testament of the said deceased: Then the above obligation to be void, orelse to remain in full force and virtue.” Signed by David Cavender (apparently in his own signature) and Newton Cannon. Signed and delivered in presence of Phillips Kollock

Sussex County, ss, Memorandum the 24 Day of October 1792 before me Phillips Kollock Register appointed for the probate of wills and granting letters of administration for the county afsd (“aforesaid”) appeared Newton Cannon, and Robert Juett, two of the Witnesses to the within Will, who being duly sworn on the Holy Evangels of Almighty God did severally depose and say that in their sight, presence and hearing the testator James Cavender did seal, publish, pronounce and declare the same to be his Last Will and Testament and that at the doing thereof he was of a sound and perfect mind memory and judgment and that they and each of them together with George Cannon, subscribed the same as witnesses in the presence of the Testator and at his request.

Signed, Phillips Kollock, Regr

Thus, it appears that James Cavender, Sr. and Sarah Cavender had 5 children:



JAMES CAVENDER, Jr. On April 21, 1808, apparently this particular James Cavender sold to his brother Thomas Cavender for 50 pounds current money a house and its contents located in Dorchester County, Maryland and which purchase was witnessed by Levin Marshall;

THOMAS CAVENDER believed to have been born about 1762 based solely on his marriage to Sarah Wheeler (“Sarah Wheeler” & “Sarah Wheelor”) in New Castle County, Delaware on either August 9, 1792, 269, 335 & N.C. Cnty. Del. Vol.15, pp 194 or in 1783 N.C. Cnty. Del. Vol.54, pp 69 Apparently, Sarah Wheeler was the daughter of William Wheeler (“William Sheeler”?) and an Alice and was appointed the Administratrix of her father's estate. Thomas Cavender and Sarah Cavender apparently had 7 children:

CHARLES CAVENDER born in either Altoona, Pennsylvania or in New Castle County, Delaware, and moved to Altoona, Pennsylvania. In 1800, a Charles Cavender was living in Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania;

HENRY CAVENDER born born about 1790 near Brandywine Hundred, New Castle County, Delaware where he married an Elizabeth and spent his whole life there as a farmer. In 1920, a Henry Cavender family was living in Christiana Hundred in New Castle County, Delaware and his family at that time consisted of 2 males under 10 years, 1 female 10-16, 1 male and 1 female 16-26, and 2 males 26-45. As there were Scotch-Irish Presbyterians living in Brandywine Hundred in 1809, it is probable that Henry Cavender and Elizabeth Cavender were likewise Scotch-Irish Presbyterians. Elizabeth Cavender is believed to have died on July 25, 1865 at the age of 70 years.Del. Archives, Dover, Del. Henry Cavender and Elizabeth Cavender are buried in Greenhill Cemetery near Brandywine Hundred, New Castle County, Delaware;
