King Family

Allied Families: The KING Family
Updated June 29, 2011




Background
The KINGs are chiefly found in New Kent, Spotsylvania, Goochland, Albemarle, Halifax and Bedford counties. Records relating to the KING family are listed below in chronological order.


Overview
Martha, likely the oldest daughter of James GILLIAM of Littleton Parish, Cumberland County married Martin KING. The births of their children are listed in the Douglas Register: Martin KING and Martha GUILLAM a son Martin KING born 21 Apl. 1756. Baptized 1756 Jun 27.
Martha's son GILLIAM KING is mentioned in the Will of his grandfather, James GILLIAM.

Marth
a and Martin KING are of great interest as they give early insight into James Gilliam for whom there is very little known before he appears in Cumberland in the late 1750's.
It should be noted that in 1729 there is a Martin KING living on the Great Licking Hole and that on 14 Nov 1757, a John Gilliham of Henrico purchases land from Obadiah Patterson in Goochland on the Branches of the Great Lickinghole. Obadiah Patterson sells to John Gilliham of Henrico Co. For 200 pounds, 400 acres of land on branches of Great Lickinghole. Bounded by Edward New, Charles Christian.
Wit: Alex Fowler, John Payne, Jos. Davis.
Rec: Nov. 16, 1757
From the Orders, some of the same families (Pattisons, Paynes and Christians) that were associated with Martin KING was also associated with this John Gilliham.

KING research is made difficult by the presence of numerous Martin KINGs, some apparently, nearly the same age (likely first cousins) living near one another. The KINGs of Albemarle are referred to as Martin KING, "the elder," "the younger," "Senior," and "Junior." One of the earliest ones married a Mary. Another one married Martha, too early to be Martha Gilliam. Later it appears that one married a Nancy that should not be confused with Martin KING that married Ann Dennis (Nancy is mentioned with Martin prior to the recorded marriage of Martin KING and Ann Dennis.)

On the Rivanna associated with one Martin KING is a Joseph KING. Joseph KINGs may be found in Stafford County, Patents and Orange County Road Orders.

Indicates that I have on file a copy of the original document.
