Will of John Champe of Truroe Parish, Loudoun Co., VA, 1763

"I am contributing the will of John Champe, born ca. 1698, died 1763, with the thought that having it available will help clear up some of the confusion that exists due to the unusual coincidence of another John Champe in the Virginia colony having a will probabted the same year. The latter man, known as Col. (or Major) John Champe of Lambs Creek, King George Co., VA, born about 1702, died 1763, was of considerable wealth and position in the colony. His wife is given as Jane Thornton, and the couple had two sons and numerous daughters. The sons were John Jr., and William, who married Anne Carter and Mary Thornton, respectively, but neither marriage resulted in children. The Lambs Creek line continued through the daughters who married, among others, into the Taliaferro, Carter, Brokenbrough, Fleming, Willis and Washington families. An account of this family is set out in a study by W.B McGroarty, "Champe of Lambs Creek", Genealogies of Virginia Families I, A-Ch, Virginia Magazine of History and Biography. According to McGroarty, there were no male Champes from this line, and therefore the burden falls on any present-day Champ(e) claiming descent from Col. John to prove McGroarty incorrect."

"For those who are interested in the will of Col. John Champe of Lambs Creek, drawn up in 1759, it was posted, April 24, 2000, by Jim Burgess on the RootWeb page for King George Co., VA Wills."

of "Lamb's Creek", King George Co, VA. "There are many references to John Champe of Lambs Creek in the public records of King George, Stafford, Essex and other counties on both sides of the Rappahannock river, prior to 1763, the year of his death, and for long after, which show that he was a man of large affairs, and of great wealth, and that he was held in high honor; he was appointed sheriff of King George in 1731; Lieut. Colonel of the County in 1752. Col. John Champe was appointed one of the executors of the will of John Spotswood, one of the second set of trustees of the town of Dumfries; one of the trustees of the town of Falmouth; appointed to settle the accounts of the militia in 1757; church warden, Lambs Creek Church, 1739 (Meade)." See FTM, CD162, p. 722.

Col. Champe had six daughters, all noted beauties. Elizabeth married Judge Plemlng; Jane married Col. Samuel Washington; Mary married Col. Lewis Willis; Lucy married Austin Brockenbrough; Ann married Col. John Tallaferro; and Sarah married Col. Edward Carter of "Bleinheim," Albemarle County. See FTM, CD186, p. 742.

1738 March 2 - King George County, VA Deed Book 2 Pp 251-255 Indenture between Major John Champe, Gent., and Jane his wife, and James Jones, bricklayer, by deeds of lease and release land in Parish of Brunswick up main road to North West side of Poplar Swamp to Mathews back line, down that line to a swamp or run which had its fountain from a spring on the land where RICHARD ELKINS SR, deceased, formerly lived.... to first bridge ..... the same being a part of 200 acres formerly granted unto Lt Col Sam'l Mathers by letters bearing date Patent under the seals of the Colony of Virginia at James City the 7th Sept 1654 by Richard Bennit Esqr. which piece of land is the dwelling plantation where Jones formerly lived. Presence: David Seale, Peter Nugent, John Taliaferro. At a court held 2d March 1738.

Jane THORNTON died about 1767 in Fredericksberg, Va. She married John CHAMPE.

There were several persons named Jane Thornton and several persons named John Champ or Champe, all of whom were born or died around 1763. Many researchers have mixed these people up and therefore family trees dealing with these names cannot always be trusted.

What makes this especially difficult is that John Champe and Jane Thornton, whomever they might be, produced numerous daughters, who married into almost all the prominent families or Virginia. Two daughters in the Champe line married relatives of President George Washington. Others married into the Taliaferro, Carter, Brokenbrough, Fleming and Willis families.
