Buckingham County

GILLIAMs of Buckingham County
Updated June 24, 2012

Background
Buckingham County was named for either the English county or for the duke of Buckingham. Some sources say that the county's namesake is Archibald Cary's tract of land called Buckingham, on what was then Willis's Creek. It was formed from Albemarle County in 1761. Its area is 582 square miles, and the county seat is Buckingham. Buckingham is one of the Commonwealth's Burned Records Counties. Its county court records were destroyed by fire in 1869. One plat book survived and some wills and deeds were later recorded.


Parishes
Tillotson Parish, 1761
GILLIAMs were also active in Maysville Presbyterian Church, est. 1842.


Overview
Numerous GILLIAM families settled in Buckingham County. One of the earliest was that of Epaphroditus who settled along the branches of the Willis. From the Buckingham Plat Book we know that Epaphroditus and Richard, the son of Epaphroditus, lived along both sides a fork of Willis River adjoining William Morris Sr., McCormacks, Thomas Blackburn, James Routon. From the Bible of Richard Holland GILLIAM we know that Epaphroditus died in 1789.

Another GILLIAM line is that of John GILLIAM and Susannah Richardson. John and Susannah were the parents of John Richardson GILLIAM, Richard Curd GILLIAM, Isham Richardson GILLIAM, William Richardson GILLIAM and Martha "Patty" Curd GILLIAM. Some of the descendants of John Richardson GILLIAM settled in and around Rockingham County, NC. See North Carolina Wills.

Who is the Widow GILLIAM of Buckingham.
It has been proposed that Widow GILLIAM of Buckingham County is Mary Jarratt GILLIAM, the wife of William GILLIAM, for Widow GILLIAM is, according to several bounds, the wife of a William GILLIAM, deceased. However, from these same grants, one learns that Widow GILLIAM lived along the Branches of the Holloday River. Since William and Mary are believed to have lived along Wreck Island, Widow GILLIAM is most likely not Mary Jarratt GILLIAM, but rather the widow of another William GILLIAM.

In 1794, Widow GILLIAM is mentioned in the Buckingham records as living adjacent to William Morris, Jr., etc. On 7 Feb 1797, David GILLIAM, receives a grant for 460 acres on some of the waters of Holloday River and south side of the Buckingham Road, adjoining Joseph Brown, William Morriss, Crouches, Richard GILLIAM, James Walker, David McCormack and Olive Branch. (Land Office Grants No. 39, 1797-1798, p. 135; Reel 105). From the adjoining lines, it is apparent that David GILLIAM lived adjacent to Richard GILLIAM, son of Epaphroditus GILLIAM, who according to the Buckingham Surveyor’s Plat Book on 13 Mar 1795 owned 413 3/4 acres on the branches Slate River; joining William Morris Sr., Olive Branch, Robert Smith and John Webb. Therefore, it is most likely that Widow GILLIAM belongs to the Epaphroditus or David GILLIAM lines.

Petition of inhabitants of Buckingham County to the House of Delegates showing that in the year 1780 the high Sheriff, Mr. Charles Pattison appoint certain times and places for the petitioners to pay their taxes but that neither sheriff not any person for him attended. As a result, the petitioners were deprived of the opportunity of paying their dues. The taxpayers had in their possession at that time sufficient paper money to pay taxes, but now the money has depreciated in value, and the sheriff refuses to accept payment at the former value of this money. The petitioners request that the sheriff be compelled to accept the paper money they kept for that purpose:

A second petition, same wording, requesting relief from difficult economic conditions.
Richd GILLIAM

30 Oct 1790
Sundry inhabitants of Buckingham county petition the General Assembly to repeal an act previously passed allowing a town by the name of Greensville to be established near the courthouse on lands owned by John Cox. At that time it was felt that the establishment of a town would attract industrious mechanics and tradesmen and would be of service to the community. The residents now find that industrious citizens can easily acquire fertile lands on the western waters and that all hopes for a considerable inland town must be postponed. The petitioners believe that the buildings and tavern at the courthouse owned by John Cox, deceased, will continue to serve the residents and strangers sufficiently if operated in the same manner as Mr. Cox had done previously.
