“Attached three head of cattle, also attached in the hands of Thomas Hightower and summoned him garnashee.”
Also written on the back side of the summons was the notation:
James Griggs to Jno Cavernor. Work done- 1 pound, 10 shillings, 0 pence. And below that notation “3 Ells Ozna and Oz thread at a total 4 shilling and 6 pence”, thereby giving a grand total of 1 pound, 14 shillings and 6 pence.
“Ozonabruck” was a common cloth to make clothing, which suggests that the unpaid bill is for work by a tailor. 393
1768/09/23 Joel Meadows ("Joel Meador"?) and his wife, Agnes Meadows ("Agness Meador"), of Raleigh Parish, Amelia County, Virginia sold to Abram Whitworth of the same parish and county, for 100 pounds 300 acres and houses thereon which were located in Raleigh Parish of Amelia County, Virginia adjacent the lines of Hugh Cavender and Thomas Green. The indenture was witnessed by John Wright, Francis Hopkins and John Bagbey ("John Badgley"? & "John Bagley"?). DB10/48 1768/10/23 Marriage license was issued to John Cavender and Elizabeth Franks (formerly Elizabeth Thomas) after her father, Robert Franks, formally gave his permission to the Court Clerk of Norfolk County, Virginia, for them to be married. They were married the next day in Northumberland County, Virginia. Apparently his daughter was not then of legal age to be married without her parent's consent. John Cavender probably was the son of Henry Cavender and Elizabeth Cavender of Westmoreland County, Virginia. It appears John Cavender and Elizabeth Cavender moved to Summer County, Tennessee and had a son named John Cavender, Jr. 133, 222 & 294 1768 (1) A Hugh Havener, Hugh Cavener or Hugh Caverner (actually "Hugh Cavender"), William Ware, Thomas Shelton, Thomas Atkinson, William Crenshaw, Sr., Benjamin Shelton and Thomas Hightower were listed in the 1768 poll lists for election of Burgesses taken of Raleigh Parish in Amelia County, Virginia by Mr. John Scott, and which listed all landowning males over 21 who were then eligible to vote. Also, a Hugh Cavener is listed in the same 1768 poll of Amelia County taken by Colonel Thomas Tabb. It is known that Hugh Cavender was then living in and owned slaves in Amelia County, Virginia. The above Hugh Havener and Hugh Cavener are therefore a misspelled duplication of Hugh Cavender due to the fact that there are various duplicate names on the above Scott and Tabb listings. Paulin Anderson ("Pauling Anderson") paid tithes on 2 white male adults then working on his 2221 acre plantation named Henry Buchanan and William Weatherford and on 11 slaves. Hugh Cavenor ("Hugh Cavender") paid 1 tithe and taxes on 150 acres of land. William Ware did not pay any tithe. Therefore, sometime between the summer of 1767 and the summer of 1768, Hugh Cavender must have stopped working as an overseer on the plantation of Pauling Anderson. 281, 350 & 393
(2) John W. Cavender ("John Cavender" & “J.W. Cavender”) was born in 1768 in Sussex County, Delaware (or Maryland), and married Charlotte T. who died on November 16, 1823.

Actually, the signature of Moses Youdaley is written as Moses Eudaley.DB10/48 1769/03/17 James Smith sold to James Cavender ("James Cavinder"?) a tract of land located on the borders of Dorchester County, Maryland containing 108 acres and known as “Smith’s Folly”.302 1769/04/xx Charles Cavender died in Dorchester County, Maryland.

The indenture was witnessed by Edmund Booker ("Edmond Booker"?), Francis Hopkins, and Henry Meador ("Henry Meadows"?). DB11/55 1769/06/23 Paulin Anderson ("Pauling Anderson") brought suit in Amelia County, Virginia against John Townsend, apparently one of his overseers, to collect a debt.

Hugh Cavender also paid taxes on 150 acres of land in the same area. Apparently, Moses Eudaley ("Moses Youdaley") was the son of Delman Youdaley ("Delman Eudaley") who apparently had died by this time.393 1770/06/16 James Cavender and Hannah Dole filed their intention to be married in Newburyport, Essex County, Massachusetts. Apparently this is the second marriage of this particular James Cavender. Note that James Cavender and Catherine Cavender are listed as the parents of subsequently born children in Newburyport, Essex County, Massachusetts.283 & 305 It is believed that James Cavender and Hannah Dole had a daughter named Hannah Davis Cavender (“Hannah Cavender” & “H.D. Cavender”) who married Thomas Downs in Newbury, Newburyport, Essex County, Massachusetts.email@example.com 1770 (1) The New York Supreme Court claimed Vermont as a possession of New York.261

He could have been an orphan son of Delman Eudaley ("Delman Youdaley") who is believed to have died before this time.393
(6) An unknown Cavendar ("Cavender"?) was born about 1770 in Maryland? and later married Rachel Ann Widener ("Rachel Widener" & “Rachael Widener”?) in Maryland?. 397 1770-1780 During this time period, the Wilderness Road across the Cumberland Gap opened, through which emigrants entered into Kentucky and Tennessee areas.

This particular Ezekiel Cavender is believed to be either the son of Dorset Cavender who died about 1738 in Dorchester County, Maryland, or the particular Ezekiel Cavender who eventually went to Jasper County, Georgia in Indian Territory.392
1771 (1) John Cavender is listed as owing Court Costs in Cecil County, Maryland. 317 He probably was the same John Cavender took an Oath of Fidelity in Cecil County, Maryland in 1778. 313 & 336
(2) Sometime between February and April of 1771, Hannah Cavenagh ("Hannah Cavenough", "Hannah Caviner" & "Hannah Cavender"?) left the port of Bristol ("Bristol County, England"?) aboard the ship Thornton and arrived in the colonies as an indentured servant. 363

The executors of the estate of Robert Jones were Thomas R. Walker (“Thomas Walker”) and his son, Robert Jones and the witnesses were Thomas Leslie and Joseph Wood. The audit of his estate was completed on August 13, 1773 by Edward Cannon (“Ed Cannon”), Lemuel Cormick and Jacob Allegood.
The Last Will and Testament of Mary Jones, who was apparently the widow of the above Robert Jones, was executed on January 12, 1791 and was probated in Princess Anne County, Virginia on February 6, 1792 with her son Enoch Jones being the named executor, and the Will was witnessed by Hillary Whitehurst and Evan Leggett.

He gave his estate to his wife during her widowhood, and then to his sons: William Jones, Robert Jones and, James Jones, and to his daughters: Rebeckah (originally “Rebeckah Jones” or “Rebecca Jones”) and Mary (originally “Mary Jones”) and probably the one that married Henry Cavender and had a daughter named Mary Cavender.

Joanna Cavender died on August, 28, 1775 in Middleboro, Plymouth County, Massachusetts, according to the records of Rev. Isaac Backus, Plymouth County, Massachusetts. Apparently John Cavender died without executing a will and his widow, Joanna Cavender, exercised her right of dower and was granted one-third of the house and land of John Cavender. A William Cavender was mentioned in the appraisal of the estate as having purchased a fat hog from John Cavender. Also, apparently other family members were then living in John Cavender's household because his widow, Joanna Cavender, was given the front or largest room of the dwelling house and one-third of the cellar, together with the right to bake in the oven in the kitchen. An inventory of his estate was taken on December 9, 1772 by Ichabod Wood, Ebenezer Spoonet and Silas Wood. John Montgomery was the Administrator of the estate which was apparently finally settled on August 1, 1774.

The Will was probated June 9, 1773 and James Cavender was one of the appraisers of the estate. James Cavender also was one of the appraisers of the estate of Sarah Cannon (apparently the wife of Thomas Cannon) whose will was executed September 11, 1773 and probated January 17, 1774 in Dorchester County, Maryland.393 1773/04/22 Francis Hopkins of Raleigh Parish, Amelia County, Virginia sold to John Green of the same parish and county for 5 pounds 10 acres and all houses thereon in Raliegh Parish in Amelia County, Virginia, which acreage was located adjacent to the lines of Thomas Green, Hugh Cavender and William Crowder.

The indenture was witnessed by John Adams, Moses Morris, Paulin Anderson, Jr. ("Pauling Anderson"), William Ford and Joshus Chaffin (“Joshua Chaffin”?). This is the first known recorded instance which shows that Paulin Anderson, Jr. was living in Amelia County, Virginia even though his father, Paulin Anderson, Sr. apparently never moved from King and Queen County, Virginia even though he owned and operated a 2221 acre plantation in Raleigh Parish of Amelia County, Virginia and on which plantation Hugh Cavender was one of the 2 overseers.DB12/32
