Here, gathered in our beloved South Dakota, are a few members of our Williamson / Mattson Clan. Charles and Luella are to be blamed (be kind, they didn't know what they were doing). We're generally a happy bunch and somewhat intelligent (notwithstanding our tenuous grasp on reality). I'm also proud to say that most of us still have our teeth.

And Now, Possible New Williamson Ancestors.

From the Fortress of Solitude
Pleasant Grove

Hello Williamsons,
I'm hoping you read my last post on the breakthrough in our family Williamson line.
If you didn't then please do not read this post until you have.


Now, if we assume I'm correct in my reasoning, and I believe I am, (until I find evidence that I'm not) then we blast through the brick wall that has stopped us from getting past Matthew Williamson, our common grandfather and father of George Matthew Williamson.

I'm now prepared to introduce you to the following ancestors that I believe make up our Williamson line to England. Once again, this is not 100% certain. It is based entirely on my line of reasoning in my post of last Saturday.

So, without further fanfare, may I introduce you to our new 'possible' ancestors:

George Matthew Williamson married Margaret Ann Willis

George, son of Matthew

Matthew Williamson married Selena Dandridge Jeffries

Matthew, son of Cuthbert

WILLIAMSON, Cuthbert b 1739 d 1812 Charlotte County, Virginia married Obedience Price.

  • Rebecca b 1754
  • John
  • Elizabeth m 12 Jun 1783, Charlotte County, Virginia Samuel Bland
married second wife Susannah White b 1754 d 1840 Charlotte County, Virginia, daughter of John and Mary White on 7 Sep 1772 Charlotte County, Virginia. Their children:
  • Mary b 1773
  • Matthew
  • Martha ("Patsey") m 5 Dec 1796 Charlotte County, Virginia John Roach
  • Nancy m Nathen Harraway
  • Charles b 1781 m 11 Oct 1806 Charlotte County, Virginia Elizabeth Smith Brown
  • Susannh Price b 14 Jan 1783 m 27 Mar 1804 Charlotte County, Virginia Achilles Jeffries
  • Cuthbert b 7 Oct 1791
  • Samuel
  • Sallie b ca. 1778
  • William Barrett b 1794
  • Daniel White
  • Frances White m 13 Dec 1822 Charlotte County, Virginia Jordan Taylor
  • Catherine
Cuthbert, son of Cuthbert

WILLIAMSON, Cuthbert b ca. 1711 Henrico County, Virginia d 20 Apr 1786 Charlotte County, Virginia married ca. 1731 Elizabeth Allen

Their children:

  • Cuthbert b 1739
  • Susanna b 25 Aug 1735
  • Mary Price b ca. 1738
Cuthbert, son of John

WILLIAMSON, John b 1687 England d 1757 Henrico County, Virginia married Rebecca Chamberlayne. Their children:

  • John b 1708
  • Thomas b 1708
  • Cuthbert b ca. 1711
The only evidence for the John as the son or gandson of Sir Joseph is that John named his place opposite Jamestown, Cobham. There is another theory regarding John's ancestors that appears to be more realistic. John was elected vestryman for Curl's Church on 17 June 1735

John, possible son of Sir Joseph Williamson

WILLIAMSON, Sir Joseph b 1630 England married Catherine O'Brien Stewart.
Their child:

  • John b 1687
Sir Joseph purchased the estate of the Duke of Richmond in Kent, England. Its seat was called Cobham Hall. He served as Secretary of State and was once imprisoned in the Tower of London for allegedly taking part in a plot to permit Catholics into England.
