GOOD NEWS!  She's Back!  This newsletter has another shipment of books from the lady that had such a hit with her Scotch-Irish books.  Her last shipment sold out in four crates, she already has her check, and her shipment of a new set of ten books arrived by UPS last evening!  I know you are anxious to see what she sent me, but it does take a while to write these newsletters up, so this crate will contain only three of those books and the other seven will come next week. 


PK CRAZY CRATE 05 BOOK 1:  DENIZATIONS AND NATURALIZATIONS IN THE BRITISH COLONIES  IN AMERICA 1607-1775.  By Lloyd deWitt Bockstruck.  Genealogical Publishing Company, 2005, 350 pages, indexed, paper bound, 6" by 9" with slick, sturdy covers.  Colonial denization and naturalization records can be difficult to find, since their location varies from one colony to another.  Lloyd Bockstruck has made the task of locating such records much easier by compiling a comprehensive Register of British Denization [A denizen is an (1.) inhabitant or (2) one admitted to residence in a foreign country esp. an alien admitted to rights of citizenship (3) one who frequents a place.  Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary] and Naturalization Records between 1607 and 1775 from a large body of published literature.  He then expanded and improved on the information by examining original source material not previously available to scholars.  More than 13,000 persons are listed. The introduction should definitely be carefully read because he explains the sources of his information there, so you will know the vast number of sources he has already entered in this book.  I was pleased to confirm records I had already found elsewhere, but a list of what appears in this book on this one ancestral line was more than a little amusing.  My maiden name was Van Treese, the spelling my grandfather, father, uncles, brothers and I all used, but times have changed somewhat!  When I researched our family I found over forty verified spellings of that name as used by various members of my family.  Here is a sample of my immigrant ancestors as found in this book.  There are zero Van Treese names, but here are the entries that are direct relatives of mine that ARE in this book.   


Verdress, John, He was naturalized in Maryland19 October 1743.   


Verdris, Valentine. He was naturalized in Maryland on 25 September 1743.   


Vertreese, Frederick, He was naturalized in Maryland in April 1749.  He was from Frederick County, and he is mine.   


Vertreese, Jacob.  He was naturalized in Maryland in April 1749.  He was from FrederickCounty.   


Vertrees, Hartman, He was naturalized in Maryland on 7 May 1767.  He was a German from Frederick County.   


All of these belong to the immigrant family of John and his six sons.  Earlier records than these will be found in Chester County and Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.   


Do you suppose this is where they got the idea to all spell their names differently?  They could read and write English by the early 1800s, because one of the next generation was the county clerk in Daviess County, Indiana, and his Spencerian Script  cursive writing is a delight to the eyes, whorls curls and spirals, curliques, abound, but beautiful and surprisingly easy to read.   


[Pat's indignant note to the world, as if it cared. As a teacher who taught cursive writing to several generations of children, I strongly deplore the decision to drop this skill from the curriculum.  We would be doing a disservice to future genealogists to deprive them of the skill of reading thousands of records, poems, stories, letters, cards, etc. left by past generations in their original form.]   


This book is in very good condition, clean pages, tight binding.  PRICE:  New $30, here $27


PK CRAZY CRATE 05 BOOK 2:  JAMESTOWNE ANCESTORS 1607-1699.  COMMEMORIZATION OF THE 400TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE LANDING AT JAMES TOWNE 1607-2007.  By Virginia Lee Hutchinson Davis.  GPC, 2006.  The Jamestown Church 1639 Restored! is the caption of the picture  that greets you when you open the book.


The Preface gives you the basic facts upon which this book is built.  The goals and dreams of these brave men and women who left their homes to embark on a perilous sea voyage to go "somewhere else" in search of a better life were mostly lesser scions of the gentry, craftsmen and laborers - not the cream of the crop, but not the bottom of the barrel either!  They might have come so they could get land, a chance to earn a higher station in a smaller community, an opportunity to work hard and maybe get rich, to have greater freedom or maybe, all of these!   


King James I just wanted to extend his reign over more people, more wealth and more land.

On Saturday the 20th of December, 1606, three ships left England.  After an arduous ocean voyage 104 English colonists aboard the Susan Constant, Goodspeed and Discovery reached the Vrginia coast at Cape Henry.  Sailing west up the river they named for their King, these men and boys stepped ashore on May 14, 1607, at the marshy peninsula now known as Jamestowne Island.   


This list is made up of those who are known to have come to Virginia before the year 1616, who survived the Massacre, and/or appear in the Muster of 1624/1625 as then living in Virginia:  


(This book gives full name and documented references. I only have room for surnames here: Allington, Andrews, Askew, Bagwell (2), Baker, Bainham, Batt(s), Bayley, Baywell, Beheathland (2), Beriston, Biggs, Birchett, Booth, Boulding (3), Boulton, Boyce, Brewer, Brewster, Buck, Burditt, Burrows, Capps, Cawsey (2), Chaplaine, Chapman, Claiborne, Chandler, Clark, Clause, Clay, Cobb, Cole, Collins, Coltman, Coxe, Croshaw, Davis (2), Dawkes, Dixon, Dodds, Downman, Dowse, Dunthorpe, Evand, Fairfax (2), Farmer, Farrar, Fisher, Flint, Flinton, Flood, Gany, Garnett, Gates, Godby, Graves, Gray, Greenleaf, Grendon, Grundy (2), Gurgany (2), Harris, Hatton, Heyley, Hospkins (2), Jenkins, Johnson, Jones, Jordan, Julian, Key(2), Kingsmill, Lane, Lansden, Laydon, Lightfoot, Lupo (2), Mason, Maye, Morgan, Mountney, Old, Pace (2), Parker, Partin, Paul, Perry, Pierce, Poole (2), Powell, Price, Pricket, Proctor, Rolfe, Safford, Salford (4), Savage, Sharpe (2), Sleight, Smith, [3 are John out of (4)], Sparkes, Spencer, Spelman, Stepney, Sully, Taylor(2), Thornbury, Tucker (2), Turner (2), Waine, Ward, Waters(2), West (2), Williams, Wiloughby, Woodlief, Wright, Yardley and Yonge.


Only about twenty of these were women.  Additional names turn up in the list of Jamestowne ancestors which runs from page 27 to page108.  In this list you get the surname, first name, time period and roll or office held and dates plus you get their origin, or county they represented, for an average of thirteen settlers per page.   


Also included are wonderful maps, especially the Zuniga's map of James Fort in 1608, followed by the James Fort Map plotted from the Jamestowne Rediscovery Archaeological Studies in 2003, then the two-page spread, "Map of James City, Virginia - 1607-1698" with the very informative key to that map. Lastly the 1634 map of Virginia's original counties on page 21 shows the range of counties in which your Jamestowne ancestor could reasonably have been expected to settle. Many of the references from which this material was assembled are also listed.  The sixteen Hereditary Organizations/or Societies qualifying for descent from Jamestowne also appear in a list on page 10.   


Commemorative books are highly desirable for the general public as well as for descendants of the actual early settlers. Clean, no marks, like new!  NEW PRICE: $20  Now $18


PK CRAZY CRATE 05 BOOK 3:  SURRY COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA WILLS 1771-1827.   Annotated Genealogical Abstracts.  By Jo White Linn.  Clearfield Company, indexed, 215 pages, 6" by 9",With slick, sturdy covers.  As you know, this author is one of my favorite speakers and authority on all things North Carolina.  Her work is excellent and extremely well suited to use by researchers.  Surry County was formed in 1771 from Rowan County, and lay within the Granville Proprietary.  After Lord Granville's death in 1763, that Land Office never reopened.  From 1763 to 1778 there was no way to get a land title to vacant land in the Propriety, but that didn't stop people from moving there.  The records in this book help to establish the residence of many people.   


Read the introduction to see what surprised this compiler! She also found out most of the State Grants were not recorded in the deed books of this county.  She tells you where to get them.  She also tells you these wills are not in consecutive order.  She also read all the wills over again making corrections and additions, when necessary.  The original wills can be consulted in the NC State Archives in Raleigh.


Abstracts of wills are particularly difficult.  The book begins with a map of Surry County with the Waterways shown and labeled.  Wills often included legacies to heirs and it was the custom to describe land in deeds with a reference tothe water course that drained the property as a means to locate the property.  It does not always mean the property sat along, or touched, the waterway.  Besides the wills, there are powers of attorney, bonds, inventories, bills of sale, etc.  Read this Introduction carefully.


The index begins on page 177.  Surnames with less than 4 first names(n) or pages(p) are not listed here:  Adaman 7p, Adams 30n, Adkins 9n, Aldridge 7n, Allen 12n, Anderson 4n, Angel 19n, Anthony 10n, Apperson 6n, Armstrong 12n, Arnold 9n, Ashby 22n, Ashley 6p., Austin 5p., Ayres 8n,
