Temperance Johnson 1
- Born: Abt 1670, Northampton Co., VA
- Marriage (1): Jacob Johnson before 10 Feb 1696 in Northampton Co., VA
In Whitelaw, Richard Teague was assigned 350a in tract N101 by Nicholas Waddelowe in 1656. Waddelowe had received the patent for the land that same year. This is the same land Richard Teague leaves to son Gabriel and Richard in 1660. This land in the modern day (2017) is on the north side of Nassawadox Creek and adjacent to and east of the hamlet of Jamesville, VA. Gabriel Teague deeded his interest to John Custis representing Col. Francis Yardley's interests in 1673. Francis and Argoll Yardley sold the entire 350a to Obedience Johnson in 1675 and Johson deeded it back to Custis alone for life and his son John a storehouse and one acre. In 1696, Johnson gift-deeded the land to his daughter Temperance and her husband Jacob Johnson (see below). By 1716, the land was in the possession their daughter Mary who had married Dingley Gray. Mary Gray, in her will, mentions Jacob Johnson Gray and Benjamin Dingley Gray. Jacob J. Gray must have died or moved as Benjamin D. Gray ends up with the land in 1750.
On Feb 10 1695/6 Obedience Johnson, Gent. of Northampton County made a deed of gift of 350a on the north side of Nassawadox (as Nusswaddox) Creek to his daughter Temperance Johnson and her husband Jacob Johnson.
Temperance married Jacob Johnson, son of John Johnson and Sarah Shepherd, before 10 Feb 1696 in Northampton Co., VA. (Jacob Johnson was born about 1672 in Northampton Co., VA and died before 21 Mar 1711 in Northampton Co., VA.)
