The Chatham News – November 26, 1931 December, 1931, Marks 161st Anniversary of Chatham County Has Enjoyed Steady and Phenomenal Era of Progress Since Its Formation in December, 1770 Has Given to World Some of Its Leading and Most Successful Men and Women A Review of Chatham’s History From Formation Thru 1924 By Hon. Walter D. Siler, Pittsboro, N. C


For twenty years immediately preceding the organization of Chatham county, the territory now embraced within its boundaries was a part of Orange. Orange had been formed in the year 1751 from Bladen, Johnston and Granville, and as our county lies within the original domain of the latter, it may be properly termed a daughter of Orange and a granddaughter of Granville.

Among other provisions, provision was made for the nomination by the Inferior Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions of Chatham of eight freeholders at each term just preceding the Superior Court for the Hillsboro District to serve as Grand and Petit Jurors in that court, this county being in that district, and another for the employment of workmen to build a Court House, jail and stocks at some place to be selected by a committee or commission composed of Edmund Fanning, Mark Morgan, Richard Parker, Stephen Poe, and Richard Cheek.


To the Assembly, which met in January, 1773, Chatham again sent Isaac Brooks, and as his colleague sent William Grave. To the session of 1774, it elected Richard Parker, who had for some time been one of the Justices of the Court, and Captain Stephen Poe. The latter died before the convening of the Assembly.


During the period extending from its organization until its formal severance of relations with Great Britain, Chatham’s Justices were Richard Parker, Robert Rutherford, James Sellars, Francis Drake, Abner Hill, Jeduthan Harper, Joab Brooks, Isaiah Hogan, Matthew Drake, Mial Scurlock, Samuel Stewart, Alexander Clarke, John Thompson, and Balaam Thompson.



“November 5th (1792. )Viewed the Tignal Jones place, commonly called Parker’s, but no proposals were offered by the proprietors. However, Tignal Jones, Jr., and Robert Cobb offered a donation of 500 acres of land adjoining the place.”


Members of the General Assembly from Chatham Under the Colonial government, Chatham was represented in the legislative assembly by the following of her citizens, viz: 1770-1771 John Wilcox Isaac Brooks 1773 Isaac Brooks William Grave 1774 Stephen Poe Richard Parker


Seeking the father of Richard PARKER who was in Orange County as early as 1753. Is listed in "Orange County Court

of Pleas and Quarterly Sessions" as a 'Justice'. And in 1766, "Richard Parker, Esq. presents his commission as Captain of Foot in the Regiment of Orange". He bought land

"on Waters of New Hope", which, later was located in Chatham. Several deeds names wife, Ann. In 1771 a deed of sale was witnessed by James Turner,LEWIS PARKER and JOHN BOOKER. Lewis believed to be son of Richard. Lewis's wife believed to be Sarah HATLEY.

Seeking information on RICHARD PARKER who was in Orange County when it was created from Granville in 1752. Did he leave records there? Is he named in Probate Records? Deeds? Who were his parents? Will exchange information.


http://www.bauer.uh.edu/parks/genealogy/nash.htm#cp this site has some more info on this family.



Audrey Young send me (W.N.P.) the info below.



of Orange and Chatham Counties in North Carolina and Green County in Georgia

Another member of the Nansemond Parkers that needs more research is RICHARD PARKER

who left North Carolina and came into Georgia. In the Parker search many facts were gathered

about this man, but the search has not been completed. He is an outstanding Parker and should be

properly placed.

Jonathan(4) and Jonas(4) Parker, sons of Richard(3) Parker, went to Granville County. Their

brother, Francis Parker, has never been carefully traced. Some researchers have thought that he

was the Francis Parker who made a will dated 1791 and probated in Gates County, North

Carolina. That Francis Parker appears to be a younger man than Francis(4) Parker, son of

Richard(3) Parker. As has been stated before, the Nansemond Parkers were "land hungry" and

their love of the land makes them easier to trace. Francis(4) Parker, son of Richard(3) Parker, like

his brothers bought some land in Granville County.

William Bennett to Francis Parker, late of Chowan Co. N. C., 450 acres on both sides of a creek

of N. E. Prong of the Tar River in Granville Co. April 4, 1756 wit. Jonas Parker, Jno. Edwards,

Temperance Bodie

Since in the year 1756 there were few Parkers in Granville Co., and Jonas(4) Parker, son of

Ricahrd(3) Parker, had a brother Francis(4) Parker, who had been living in Chowan Co. and there

was no other Francis Parker in Granville, Jonas(4) Parker was most certainly witnessing a deed

for his brother Francis(4) Parker. Francis(4) Parker sold the land to Benjamin Wade on February

20, 1759 {159}. The same land is mentioned in a deed from William Taylor to Phillip Taylor for

"250 acres in Gran- ville Co., North Carolina, land on "Lick Branch" a prong of the Tar River.

This land was granted to William Bennett, April 20, 1745 and by him sold to Francis Parker and

by him to Benjamin Wade who sold to Wm. Taylor (160}

Jonas(4) Parker, son of Richard(3) Parker named sons Richard Parker and Stephen Parker.

Richard Parker of Orange County named sons Richard Parker, Stephen Parker, and Daniel

Parker, all names used by descendants of Richard(3) Parker. No records are available to the

author on the descendants of Stephen(4) Parker, son of Richard(3) Parker.

Orange County was created from Granville County in 1752. Major Richard Parker was in Orange

County owning land on "Lick Branch". Richard Parker of Orange County, North Carolina was

made a J. P. in March 1757 {161}, He proved the will of Wm. Milton in 1759, {162} had his

mark recorded in 1761 and in August {163} 1763 he "presents comm as Capt. of Foot in Regt. of

Orange County {164}. Again in 1764 he was made J. P. {165}. He and Patience Booker were

granted "Letter of Adm." on the est of Patience Booker, dec'd, about 1764 {166}. He made an

inventory of the estate of Patience Booker to the Court in 1764 {167}. In 1765 he, with two other

men, was to attend court at Halifax as Petit Jurors {168} and in 1766 Richard Parker as Adm.

was involved in a law suit. {169} One reference referred to "Maj. Parker" {170} in 1787 so

evidently Richard Parker had been promoted from Capt. to Major. Richard Parker received a

number of Land Grants in Orange County. There are four grants recorded for 700 acres {171},

300 acres {172}, 148 acres {173} and 345 acres {174}In the early days of Chatham Co. North Carolina there appears to be only two families of Parkers

-- Richard Parker who was from Orange County and Robert Parker, son of Simon and Judah

Parker of Edgecombe County, who has already been traced. The first recorded deed to Richard

Parker was on February 17, 1771 when he sold to Oldham Hightower 180 acres on Newhope

where Hightower was living. The deed stated "Richard Parker of the County of Orange" and was

witnessed by James Turner, Lewis Parker and John Booker. {175} There were many deeds

recorded in Chatham County made by Richard parker and by him and his wife Ann Parker. A few

that give information are given here.

Richard Parker to William Griffin, land on New Hope includes plantation where Stephen Parker

now lives... 300 acres... on North side of Haw River, East side of Pokeberry. Jan. 8, 1783

Stephen Parker, Daniel Parker Rich'd Parker

Richard Parker to Lewis Parker 643 a. on waters of Newhope on Lick Branch... 400 pounds Wm.

x Copeland, Edward Edwards Rich'd Parker

Daniel x Parker

Richard Parker and Ann Parker to John Hogan of Orange County land on both sides of

Newhope... 120 acres being a part of a tract of 300 acres granted to sd. Rich Parker by Earl

Granville by deed bearing date of 12 May 1755. 13 Oct 1784 Rich'd Parker

James Sellars, Robt Cobb Ann Parker

Richard Parker Sr. of Chatham Co. to Tignall Jones Sr. of Wake County.. 700 acres.. parts of

three surveys.. sd. Parker's plantation where he now lives.. land on Pike- berry Branch mentioned.

6 March 1784

Francis Jones, Tignall Jones Jr. Rich'd Parker

Lewis Parker

Maj. Richard Parker was closely allied with the Hogan Family. He sold Isaiah Hogan land on

"Lick Branch". {180} Isaiah Hogan died and on February 12, 1782 Nancy Hogan, Nancy x

Hogan, J. Williams and Rich'd Parker were appointed "Executors". {181} By 1785 John Hogan

was appointed administrator of the est- tate of his father. {182} (One deed states that John Hogan

was the son of Isaiah Hogan, dec'd.) In 1787 Nancy Hogan was appointed administrator of the

estate. {183} John Hogan came to Georgia about the same time Maj. Richard Parker and his

family came. Further proof that the Hogans were relatives is that Lewis Parker, who seemed to be

the oldest son of Richard Parker, named his oldest son, Isaiah Parker

There were many changes in the county lines in Georgia about that time. Washington County was

created from Indian Lands in 1784. Greene County was made from Washington in 1786, and in

1793 Hancock was made from Greene and Washington. Warren was an adjoining county to

Hancock. In 1825 Taliaferro County was formed from Green, Hancock, Warren, and Wilkes

Counties. The Parkers settled in this area and are found in the records of several of them.

Major Richard Parker and Ann Parker moved to Georgia. In Wilkes Co., Georgia Court Minutes

of 1784, p. 29, is a notice, "Ordered that Richard Parker have a Warrant for 200 Acres on the

Waters of the Ogeechee, on his own Head Right". At the same time Warrants were issued to

Lewis Parker and Sherwood Hatley, both from Chatham Co., North Carolina. In the Tax Digest

for Wilkes Co., Georgia for 1785, Capt. Thompson's District, the following men paid tax:Richard Parker

Richard Parker, Jr.

Stephen Parker

Daniel Parker

Lewis Parker

In the Minute Book Powellton Baptist Church, Mayfield, Hancock Co., Georgia (organized in

1786) for the year 1786 were the names of Richard Parker and Ann Parker. Although recorded

deeds have not been located to show how much land was owned by Richard Parker, he acquired a

number of acres. On April 1, 1799 he made a deed to his son, Richard Parker Jr., giving him

some slaves and 516 acres of land. In this deed he mentioned his "other children" but did not

name them.

Richard Parker, Sr. of Greene County, Georgia, to son, Richard Parker, Jr. for the consideration

of the love, good will & affection which I have & do bear toward my son Richard Parker, Jr. &

further for the con- sideration of ten dollars, four negroes, to-wit, Cader, Judah, James & Jincy;

also one tract of land which I now live on, containing 516 acres, lying on Powells creek, part in

Greene & part in Hancock, adjoining land of John Cain, James Alford & John Johnston; together

with dwelling house thereon & all furniture, stock & ______ of all kinds, together with all my

substance of any kind whatever not posted to other children before this date. April 1, 1799

Richard Parker (Seal) {184} Signed, Sealed and delievered in the presence of Reuben Slaughter,

John C. Mason, Tho. Baldwin, J. G. Recorded the 6th of April, 1799. Tho. Carleton, Clk.

By 1799 Major Richard Parker was growing old. When and where he died has not been found but

he evidently died between 1799 and 1811 as shown by this deed, recorded in Chatham Co.

Richard Parker of Grreene County, Ga. to Francis Jones land on Pokeberry Creek granted to

Isaiah Hogan and from John Hogan, son of Isaiah, deeded to Richard Parker, Sr. Apr. 1, 1811

Matt Jones, Lewis Parker Richard Parker

Of the four men, Lewis Parker, Stephen Parker, Daniel Parker and Richard Parker, Jr. Only one,

Richard Parker, Jr. is actually mentioned as a son of Richard Parker, Sr. However Richard

Parker, Sr. mentioned "other children" in a deed and Lewis, Daniel and Stephen were so closely

associated with him they had to be his children. He sold the land on which Stephen Parker lived

in Chatham which certainly shows a close relationship. No doubt, Major Richard Parker and Ann

Parker had some daughters but their names are not known. Until proven other- wise Lewis,

Daniel and Stephen Parker are here considered sons of Richard and Ann Parker.

        • Wayne, YDNA group 12 has Joseph Crockett Parker of Accomack, county North Carolina. She was wondering about Indiana lineage. I do think that the YDNA of Parker may have that information. I will double check my records right now. I have it right here.
          Quanah Parker abt 1845 TX P43 in the 2018 YDNA Parker records. Here are the testing numbers: 13, 25, 14, 10, 11, 16,12, 12,12,13,13,29,18,9,10, 11, 12,25, 14, 19, 30, 15, 15, 16, 17. The Parker story is this, Cynthia Ann Parker was captured by the Indians, and Quanah Parker was either her husband or son. I think those numbers I gave do not include Cynthia Ann Parker white father since she also had an Indian father, and the numbers did not match to group 1 or 5 which I think is Cynthia Ann Parker white father.
          • Correction P117, Group 12, Joseph Crockett Parker born Accomack County, VA or NC not sure which, died 1843, wife: Mary Ann AMBROSE, born 1806 County, Cork Ireland. Others in Family Group 12, P70 John Parker abt 1569 Eng, P81 Peter Parker 1783 MD/KY, P93 John R Parker 1861 MO, P99 Ayres Parker 1755-65 MD, P117 Joseph C Parker 1800 VA, P167 Peter Parker 1910 MS.
