This William Cochran families in 1830 era are having lands dealings with Elisha Dodson and Josiah Johnson

                                                                        


Of Note is the marriage of the Shelton Families to my Matlock families and to the families of Patrick Henry whose families will marry into the Dodson families and his Half Brothers family are those coming off Capt. John Symme-John Simms whose cousin is Adam Symes and Wife Mary Isham and this line goes to Bartlett Simms of Washington Co NC, in what lands are now in Hawkins Co. Tn. The neighbor of our Hudson Johnson

Patrick Henry’s first wife also connects back to the Shelton- Matlock lines and to the Dodson Lines of Colonial Virginia. Patrick Henry’s half brother is Capt. John Symes. He is also related to the Colonial Darby Families of Virginia

SPECIAL NOTE OF INTEREST: SIR JOHN NORTON CONNECTING TO A DODSON

At the outbreak of the Civil War, Miles Dodson, in common with most of the local gentry, sided with the King, though he managed somehow to escape punishment and the confiscation of his property.

In July, 1648, he and Francis Steele, of Barrowby, were indicted for that they had acted as Commissioners of Array and had collected moneys for the Earl of Newcastle, and had also ridden in his army.

These charges they confuted, and on the 11th January, 1650, they were dismissed. But Dodson's sympathy, if not very truculent, was decidedly for the Royal cause, and he was implicated in the charges brought by Sir Richard Hawksworth, of Hawksworth, in the parish of Otley, against Sir John Goodrick of Ribston, his brother-in-law Sir John, who was a Colonel in the King's army, had in October, 1642, sent one of his Captains with a squadron of horse to Hawksworth Hall to arrest Sir Richard. The latter thereupon was taken to York and kept a prisoner for nearly two years. Sir Richard had married a sister of Sir John Goodricke, from whom he was separated, and Miles Dodson, it was stated, had been active in fomenting the feeling of animosity that existed between the Goodrickes and Sir Richard Hawksworth. He had persuaded Lady Hawksworth to live apart from her husband, who seems to have been a man of peculiar temper, and contrary to every tradition of his house, had taken up arms against the King. It was further stated that Miles Dodson and others had been party to the appropriation of lands, &c., at Mitton in Craven, belonging to Sir Richard Hawksworth, and that they had compelled the tenants to pay their rents to them during the time of the hostilities, and moreover it was affirmed they had been to Hawksworth Hall and carried away all the deeds and writings appertaining to the above property.* These charges were wholly denied, and although Hawksworth recovered the property, yet Sir Richard and his wife were never reconciled. Let us hope, however, that the character borne by Miles Dodson was justified by the terms of his epitaph in the church, I quoted, that he was " a peace-maker amongst his neighbours." At any rate the verdict of the Commonwealth judges was in his favour. He died in 1658, and his will, a copy of which I append, was proved in London before the Judges for Probate, 20th May, 1658, by Lucie Dodson, hiswidow. This was during the Commonwealth.


The cousin, Thomas Dodson, mentioned in the will, married a

Norton of Langthorne, in the parish of Bedale, of the same family

who, purchased the manor of Kirkby Overblow in the time of Queen Elizabeth. In 1667 Thomas Dodson of Kirkby Overblow, and Ellen his wife, obtain leave to bring an action to recover money due to the said Ellen by a settlement made by her father, Thomas Norton, late of Langthorne, in 16 48. There are three daughters recorded of the marriage, Dorothy Norton, Katherine Norton, and Ellen Norton, and the last mentioned was married, apparently, to a kinsman, Edward Dodson.
William Goodricke, of Skidby and Walton Head, was a colonel in the Parliamentary army. A long account of him will be found in Mr. Goodricke's valuable history. He was concerned in the disputes with Sir Richard Hawksworth and his wife, the friend of Miles Dodson, of Kirkby Overblow (see page 80). Colonel Goodricke married Sarah, daughter of Mr. William Bellingham, of Bromby, in the parish of Frodingham, co. Lincoln, by his wife Frances, only daughter of Alex. Amcottes, of Aisthorp, co. Lincoln, Esq., and sister of Rich. Bellingham, Esq., who became Governor of Boston, New England. By indenture, dated 20th August, 1613, Sir Henry Goodricke, of Ribston, settled upon William Bellingham, Esq., Sarah's younger brother, and Sir Francis Baildon, as co-trustees, a moiety of the manor of Walton Head for the use of Sarah Goodricke during her life. Col. Goodricke died in January, 1663-4, at the age of 80, and in his will describes himself as of Walton Head, in the county of York. Apparently he resided there during the latter years of his life.

Notes Goodricke- Goodrich will be found on Tuckahoe Creek and are families of Sir John Norton and his allied familes of Sir Thomas Mith, Sir Thomas Middleton, Sir Thomas Johnson and Alderman Robert Johnson
Notes Re Check Walton Head as this is in Sir? And his property at one time. Waltonhed-Walton Head

Home of Sir Thomas Johnson then home of his son Henry Johnson married to Elizabeth Norton daughter of Sir John Norton and wife Suzanne De Neville


WALTON HEAD.

WALTON Head is the range of high land lying to the east of the turnpike road between Harewood Bridgeand Harrogate. Near Buttersyke Bar (3 miles from Harrogate), there is a guide-post at Dawson Lane end (1½ miles from Kirkby Overblow), and in the perambulation of 1577 mention is made of two stones standing in this lane, the spot being now marked by one stone bearing the letters and date, " K. F., 1767," on that side of the stone next to the lands of the Forest. Mention is also made of " ye Wynd Mill at Walton Head, adjoining upon ye common of Swindon." Following this lane (in the perambulation of 1767 stated to be " the church-way from Rigton to Kirkby Overblow "), we pass in half-a-mile the solitary farm of Walton Head, the representative of the capital mansion of the manor of Walton mentioned in Domesday. It is now the property of the Earl of Harewood, and is known as Low Sneap House. The original mansion has apparently stood within a piece of moated ground situated on the south side of the existing homestead. The space encompassed by the moat measures about 100 yards by 8o yards, and there is also a smaller area of about 45 yards by 30 yards, similarly enclosed by a broad ditch and inner rampart formed by the soil thrown out of it.


At the period of the Reformation a family named Pool was living here, and one Henry Pooll of Walton Head, died in 1550, and his will was proved August 7th. It was doubtless a member of this house who became rector of Kirkby Overblow in 1496.
In the 16th century the estate was held by Sir Thomas Johnson, Kt., of Lindley, one of whose daughters married Richard Fawkes, of Farnley, who died in 1587, and was brother of Anthony, whose widow married Philip Bainbridge of Scotton, kinsman of Guy Fawkes.

Henry Johnson inherited large properties from his father,* most of which he sold during the troublous times of the Catholic conspiracy that led to the great northern rebellion in 1569. Joining the insurgents, he was in consequence attainted, and his lands forfeited. Subsequently however, he obtained a pardon and his lands were recovered. See Surtees Soc., vol 106, page 205.

Henry Johnson, my grandfather, removed from Pennsylvania to North Carolina during the Revolutionary war, in which he served as a private, under what command or in which of the campaign I know not. He settled near the forks of the Tadkee, a few miles from Salisbury, where he resided until the year 1796, when he removed to Robertson county and settled at a place now belonging to the family of Ben Porter, deceased, tow and a half miles east of Springfield.
He afterwards purchased on Karr's Creek, about three miles south of Springfield, where he died in
1815. His place was sold lately to Walter Bell. His wife was Rachel Holman. Of her family I knew nothing, except her brother Dave Holman, who lived many years in Robertson county near the Cross plains,
where he died, leaving a large family of sons and daughters. She died about the time of her husband, leaving the following children:

William,

Thomas,

Henry,
Issac,

Joseph,

Jacob V.,

Rebecca,

Mary, and

Rachel.

Rachel died before she became of age and unmarried. All of them moved from North Carolina and settled in


Robertson county, with their families, except Thomas, who had settled there in 1789.

William Johnson, first son, married Diana Adams; had a large number of children, of whom


I knew Thomas, Henry, and Elizabeth, afterwards married to James Burton. Thomas removed with
Morgan and settled in Carroll county, Tennessee, and afterwards to Arkansas, where his family still
resides. Henry removed with his father and family to Green county, Alabama, where William and
wife both died. Henry and most of the family afterwards removed to Mississippi, where they
now reside. Dianna and William are buried at Beulah Church in Newton Co., MS.

Thomas Johnson, second son, settled in Robertson county s a surveyor in 1789, when to


Kentucky the next year, and was married to Mary Noel at Craig's Station, near Versailles, Ky, and
brought her to Robertson county in 1790, then Davidson county. He was actively engaged as
a captain of a company in suppressing Indian hostilities, and rendered much service to the
frontier settlers, and went with the company to Nick-a-Jack on the Tennessee River and was
in the battle. He and his company were compelled to cross the river by swimming on logs and surprised
the Indians and killed a great many. After the treaty of peace with the Indians made at Greenville in 194,
he engaged in surveying, was elected Colonel of his county, and was a member of the convention which
famed the State Constitution in 1796. After the organization of the State, he was elected the Clerk
of the County Court of Robertson county, and in 1800, he was elected Brigadier-General in preference
to Colonel John Shelby, of Montgomery, when it was apprehended that we should be involved in a war with
France, if not a civil war with the Federal party, then headed by John Adams and Alexander Hamilton.
He was the active, decided and efficient friend to Jefferson, and warmly and zealously opposed to
the doctrines, as well as the leaders, of the Federal Party. Contact: DARLA COLLINS

1771 January, Griffith Rutherford, a member of the Assembly from



Rowan, introduced a bill for ascertaining the boundary line between Rowan

and the counties of Mecklenburg and Tryon, which lay to the south.47 This

measure was expedient because the settlers on the borders of the three

counties refused to pay their taxes in any of them. Lord Granville's

line had never been surveyed so far westward. Thomas Neal, Thomas Polk,

Matthew Locke, Griffith Rutherford, and Peter Johnston were appointed to

run the line, and the inferior courts of the three counties were

authorized to levy a tax sufficient to defray the expense.48 At the same

session the General Assembly recognized the urgent necessity of setting up new

counties within the vast territory embraced by Rowan. A bill was passed

establishing Guilford County and Unity Parish in the region lying between

Salisbury and Hillsboro.49 (Guilford, which was named for Francis North,

Earl of Guilford, and father of Lord North, Prime Minister of George III

during the Revolution, was composed of territory taken from Rowan and Orange.

The portion taken from Rowan was that which now makes up the counties of

Guilford, Rockingham, and Randolph. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ncrowan/rowanhis.txt
