CHARLES CAVENOUGH/CAVENDER line (1678 - ? )

INTRODUCTION: It is recorded that, in the late 1600, two of Sir Morgan Cavenaugh’s sons, Charles Cavenaugh ("Charles Cavenah"? & "Charles Cavender") and Philemon Cavenaugh ("Philemon Cavenah"? & "Philemon Cavender") immigrated to America and settled in St. Mark's Parish in Essex County, Virginia. Philemon Cavenaugh has many descendants in Virginia, Kentucky, Indiana and Tennessee and several books have been written of his descendants. Another historian states that Charles Cavenaugh ("Charles Cavenah" & "Charles Cavender") and Philemon Cavenaugh ("Philemon Cavenah" & "Philemon Cavender") came to America late in 1660, but that Charles went back to France. However, in 1705 a Charles Cavenaugh (or “Cavenough”), late of Essex County, Virginia, was granted a patent for a parcel of land in Edgemont County, North Carolina. This may be the same Charles Cavenaugh who came to America in 1678 via Barbados according to Hotten's list of immigrants in that year and later moved to Virginia and later to Kentucky and Tennessee112 380 and is considered the first American ancestor of this particular line and is believed to be the grandson of Sir Morgan Cavanaugh (Sir Morgan Cavender"?)of Ireland who was exiled to France. The second-named Charles Cavenaugh ("Charles Cavenah"? & "Charles Cavender"?) died on April 8, 1756 in Edgecombe County, North Carolina, and from his Last Will and Testament, he names his children, most of whom migrated to Georgia, particularly to St. George’s Parish, Georgia which later became Burke County, Georgia in 1777, and they received numerous land grants for several hundred acres, apparently from the so-called Georgia “land lottery”. The 9 children listed were:

MEMORIAL CAVENAH ("Memorial Cavenaugh? & "Memorial Cavender"?) who married a Pollard (“Memorial Pollard”);

Of possible relevance, a Nicholas Cavenah is listed in the Georgia's Roster of the Revolution, by Knight, as being from Georgia and a Captain in the Revolutionary War. Henry Cavanah (“Henry Cavender”?) of St. George's Parish, Georgia, who married an Ann, and who, on January 5, 1768, sold 100 acres of land in St. George's Parish, Georgia to Nicholas Cavanah, which land is located approximately 120 miles from Savannah, Bryan County, Georgia.

PHILEMON CAVANAUGH/CAVENOUGH/CAVENDER (1690-1744)


On July 7, 1733, the Last Will and Testament of Jael Williams, wife of William Williams, apparently was executed on this date and was proved in the Spotsylvania County, Virginia court on September 4, 1733. (Spotsylvania County, Virginia was named for Alexander Spotswood, lieutenant governor of Virginia from 1710 to 1722. It was formed from Essex County, Virginia, King William County, Virginia, and King and Queen County, Virginia in 1720.) The Will of Jael Williams was witnessed by Antro. Rhodes, Jr., William Call, Jr., and Sarah Garton. The executor was Richard Tutt. Jael Williams apparently was formerly Jael Tutt as she named her son Richard Tutt in her Last Will and Testament. She also named the following persons: her son James Williams; William Williams; Betty Marshall ("Elizabeth Marshall"?), fromerly Elizabeth Williams; Sarah Cavanaugh (“Sarah Cavenaugh” & "Sarah Cavender"?), formerly Sarah Williams; Jael Cavanaugh (“Jael Cavanaugh” & "Jael Cavender"?), formerly Jael Williams; James Williams; Richard Tutt; and Philemon Cavenaugh ("Philemon Cavenaugh, Jr."?, "Philemon Cavender"?, "Philenon Cavender"? & "Philmeon Cavender"?). However, it is to be noted that Jael Williams is said to be formerly Jael Harrison (maybe by a former marriage.).462

The 12 children of William Williams and Jael Williams were:



John Williams who died at infancy;

James Williams who married an Ann;

William Williams who died about 1778 in Culpeper County, Virginia, married Lucy Clayton (“Lucille Clayton”?) and had 5 children;

John Williams;

Elizabeth Williams who died after 1757 in Caroline County, Virginia, married a William Marshall who died about 1757 in the same county, and they had 9 children;

Sarah Williams first married Philemon Cavanaugh (“Philemon Cavenaugh”, “Philemon Kavanaugh” & “”Philemon Cavender”?), and later married Richard Covington when Philemon Cavanaugh died in 1744, and she died about 1768.

It is believed that she married the Philemon Cavanaugh or Philemon Cavenaugh who was born in Ireland, or in exile, about 1690, that he and his brother Charles Cavanaugh or Charles Cavenaugh (“Charles Cavender”?) immigrated to the Virginia Colony about the year 1705.

It is to be noted that a Charles Cavanaugh ("Charles Kavanaugh" & "Charles Cavender"?), son of Charles Cavanaugh ("Charles Cavender"?), was baptized in St. Michaels Parish on the Island of Barbados on January 14, 1678, and apparently he was buried the next day. It is said that the elder Charles Cavenaugh later moved to Virginia and later to Kentucky and Tennessee.112 380

On motion of Mr. Zachary Lewis on November 7, 1728 to alter the way from Northanna, Virginia to Fredericksburg, Virginia over the Hazel Run, it was ordered by the Spotsylvania County, Virginia County Court that William Livingston, Phillemon Cavenaugh ("Philemon Cavenaugh", "Philmeon Cavender" & "Philemon Cavender"?) and James Williams, Gentlemen, or any two of them were ordered to view the same and make a report of their opinion about it to the next Court.

On September 28, 1729, Philemon Caverner ("Philmeon Cavender" & “Philemon Cavender”?) purchased 4477 acres of “new and old” land in St. George’s Parish, Spotsylvania County, Virginia. The land was located in the (“gr”?) fork of the Rappa River (“Rappahannock River”) adjacent to the lands of Robert Slaughter, Colonel Alexander Spotswood, Philemon Caverner’s patent, and the land of Colonel Henry Willis. The land crossed the Muddy Run River by a branch of Mountain Run, to James William’s line.Pat Bk 13, 485 The Muddy Run River was originally in the State of Virginia, but when Kentucky became a State, it included the Muddy Run River formerly in Virginia. Apparently the land was also adjacent to a 3,277 acre tract of land commonly called “Parker’s Land” which was granted to Colonel Henry Willis who apparently sold the land to Philemon Caverner ("Philmeon Cavender" & “Philemon Cavender”?) and another 800 acre tract of land which was formerly granted to Philemon Caverner. Apparently, Philemon Caverner only paid 40 shillings for the 4,477 acre tract.



On October 7, 1727, Phillemon Cavanaugh ("Philemon Cavenaugh", "Philmeon Cavender" & "Philemon Cavender"?), overseer of the Rappahannock Road petitioned the court of Spotsylvania County, Virginia for an order and directions where he may have timber to build the bridge ordered to be built over the Hazel Run (because) Mr. James Williams, owner of the land adjacent, has forwarned him not to fall any trees of his. It is considered by the Court that there is no great occasion for building that bridge. Ordered that the said Petition be dismissed. Old Rappahannock County, Virginia was later split into Richmond County, Virginia and Essex County, Virginia, with Richmond County being the portion lying northeast of the Rappahannock River on the Northern Neck of Virginia, and Essex County being that portion of the old county lying to the southwest of the Rappahannock River.

On February 18, 1734, an Order was entered by the County Court of Orange County, Virginia (which was formed from Spotslvania County, Virginia in 1734) that stated “all male titheables belonging to Philemon Cavenaugh and his son-in-law, Lewis Yansey (“Lewis Yancy”) are to assist and observe the surveyors orders and directions .... “
