===
What follows is excerpted from Lou Poole's HEARNE Chapter...
===
In writing of the Hearne family in 1897, W. T. Hearne stated that William Hearne had a little book that had passed down from previous generations to him which did record his genealogy back to the days of the Norman Conquest in 1066. This book remained a treasured family heirloom along with other family records until the 1800’s, when, unfortunately, it was destroyed by a fire. The writer had talked to older members of the family who ad actually seen this book. If such a record did exist, (and I have no reason to doubt that it did) then what a tragic loss!

The name appeared on American soil at an early date. John, Thomas, and Robert Hern arrived in Virginia in the years 1636-1667, and William Hearne (our direct ancestor) had settled permanently in Somerset County, Maryland, by 1688, as had as two of his brothers.

In any event, we continue with the known facts of the life of William. He was about fifteen years old at the out-break of the Civil War in England in 1642. He enlisted with the forces of Oliver Cromwell, and rose to the rank of Captain. It seems safe to assume that William and his family were devout Protestants, since there were two officers and several ministers who served as chaplains of the same surname, and history tells us that Cromwell chose his men as much for their religious enthusiasm, as their military ability. However, he trained his men well, never losing a battle. These men were given the name ‘Roundheads;’ so called because they wore their hair cut close to the head in contrast to the flowing wigs affected by the followers of Charles I. They were also called ‘Ironsides’ because of the iron courage shown at the battle of Marston Moor.

After the execution of Charles I, the officers of the army drew up the ‘Instrument of Government’ and named Cromwell the ‘Lord Protector.’ He ruled, with the support of the army, until his death in 1658. William remained as an officer of the army during this period.
With the restoration of Charles II to the throne in 1660, it would certainly seem logical that William would not consider it wise, or even safe, to remain in England. In any event, he left England in 1660, and went to St. Christopher’s Island in the West Indies.
While we do not know details of the financial status of William, it would appear that he had ample funds when he migrated to the Islands. There, he was able to establish a large trade which flourished from 1660 until 1688, between England, the West Indies, and the American Colonies. Perhaps my greatest curiosity about the life of William is what type of cargo his ships carried on board during these trips, but I have not been able to find this information. While this ‘triangular’ trade is suggestive, later descendants referred to him only as ‘William, the Merchant’ or ‘William, the Immigrant.’
In his writings of this William, in the Hearne History in 1895-1898, William T. Hearne stated that one old ledger, giving details of his business had been preserved (others, as well as the before-mentioned book on his genealogy having been destroyed by fire). He stated, ‘I have the old ledger before me now, and though greatly mutilated, enough is left to show us clearly his line of business and the character of the goods shipped, and though written in plain hand, and the ink clear and the words and letters perfectly distinct, and more than two hundred years since written, it is very difficult to decipher the many abbreviations and characters, as they are so different from those now in use.’

Efforts to locate present-day descendants of William T. Hearne, or the ledger he had of this first William, have been fruitless. However, he did include a few copies of invoices... From the invoices, we do know the names of the following ships:
1. The Golden Fleece, with Jno. Leech, Commander.
2. The Eagle Tower, with Wm. Webster, Commander.
3. The Globe, with Nathaniel Saunders, Commander.
4. The St. George, with Thomas Dann, Commander.
(A brief and limited search at the National Archives has failed to find additional information on these ships. Possibly, research of British Naval records would be more fruitful, however, it is not possible for me to do so.)
William Hearne, the merchant, did a large business from London to the West India Islands from 1680 to 1688 (mostly at the islands of St. Christopher and St. Thomas) and back to London, shipping large cargoes of goods of all kinds from London to the islands, and on the return trip taking back shipments chiefly of Muscovada sugar, in hogsheads, as his old ledger shows, from 1683 to 1688, inclusive. I have the old ledger before me now, and though greatly mutilated, enough is left to show us clearly his line of business and the character of goods shipped, and though written in a plain hand, and the ink clear and the words and letters perfectly distinct, and more than two hundred years since written, it is very difficult to decipher the many abbreviations and characters, as they are so very different from those now in use. I note one abbreviation that I thought was modern; that is St. Xtopher’s for St. Christopher’s, as in Xmas for Christmas. Opposite is a perfect copy of one-third of a page from the ledger, as photographed and then engraved from the original.
Then follows the entire account of several pages, continuing the above, of various kinds of goods, making a total of £631 14s. and 9d. On the return trip to London, I copy as verbatim as I can.

This old ledger of 1681-1688 has been handed down through six generations, from the first William of that early date, and brought to Kentucky 1798 by Clement Hearne, and now, 1907, in the possession of the author of this book, at Independence, Missouri. There were quite a number of blank leaves in it, many of which have been filled by different ones through whose hands it has passed, with a variety of things and subjects, all of which are interesting to look over and read, some of which I copy verbatim as follows...
Two of the merchant Williams’ old Ledgers or invoice books, and a Small book of his genealogy descended to his great-grandson, Clement Hearne, who brought them to Kentucky with him in 1798, and one of the old ledgers is still in the family. The book of genealogy traced back in an unbroken line to the time of the Conqueror, 1066, to an officer, a standard bearer to the Conqueror, bearing the family name Hearne. This much-prized little book of genealogy was seen and read by several of my generation of the family, who were much older than I; among them were Mrs. Eveline Allen, a granddaughter of Clement Hearne, and William L. Hearne, a great nephew of Clement Hearne, who then (1836) lived in Delaware and died in Wheeling, West Virginia in 1895. They were both full grown people when they saw the book, and told me how Grandfather Clement prized it and how carefully he kept it, and with what pride he showed and explained it to them. I remember quite well myself the two years I lived with him, though only five and six years old, of his keeping these old treasure books, in a small book case in the wall, always under lock, with the key in his pocket. His wife died in less than two years after that, and he had to go to live in a room built for him in his son Joseph’s yard. In the meantime, Joseph had married his second wife; that rendered both his and his father Clement’s life unhappy, and she knew not the value, and perhaps cared not, for these old books of such inestimable worth; hence they were lost or destroyed, except one, which was an invoice book of merchandise carried between London and America. The house which William Hearne built in 1688 was occupied by some of his descendants for nearly two hundred years, and the land has never passed out of the family being owned now, 1907, by the children of Elijah Freney, lineal descendants of the first settler, William Hearne.

William left St. Christopher in 1688 and settled permanently in Somerset County, Maryland, on a tract of land he named ‘St. Kitts.’ However, it appears he had spent some time in the colonies before this date, even if not on a permanent basis. By 1681, two brothers of William had settled in the same area, near the Maryland/Delaware line where William built his home. Early marriage records suggest that William was married there. Perhaps he was, and at a later date married the wife that became the mother of his children. William’s wife at the time of his death was Mary Cuthbert, who bore him two children. Since William was sixty-one years old when the first son was born, I am led to believe that Mary was a later (and younger) wife.
We do know that William became the father of two sons by his marriage to Mary Cuthbert, both being born in Somerset County, Maryland. Rather surprisingly, (and fortunately, for later researchers) he had the children’s birth recorded in Princess Anne, Somerset County, Maryland. These records show that the first son, William, Jr., was born 24 September 1688, and the second son, Thomas, was born 31 May 1691.

William made his will on 28 March 1691, shortly before the birth of his second son. This will was probated on 10 November 1691. His death was apparently in October of that year.

The following is a copy of William’s will and other documents relative to his estate, copied from the Maryland records.
Will: "In the name of God Amen. I, William Hearne, of Somerset County in the Province of Maryland, being sick and weak of body but of sound and perfect memory (Blessed be God) and calling to mind the uncertain estate of this life on earth and being desirous to set things in order do make this my last will and testament in manner and form following:
"First and principally: I command my soul to God that gave it assuredly believing that I shall receive full pardon and free remission of all my sins and be saved by the precious death and merits of my blessed Savior Jesus Christ, and my body to be buried in such decent order as to my executrix hereafter named shall be thought meet and convenient. And as touching such worldly estate as it hath pleased God in his mercy, hath been pleased to bestow upon me, my will and meaning is (that after my real and just debts be paid) that the same be disposed of as by this my last will is expressed, and first I do hereby revoke, renounce and make void all former wills by me made and declare and appoint this to be my last will and testament.

"Item. - I give and bequeath my whole estate both real and personal to be equally divided between my loving wife, Mary Hearne and my son William Hearne to be delivered to my son when he shall arrive to the age of twenty-one years. And whereas my said wife being now with child, if it should please God that the child or children with which my said wife now goeth with should live, then my will and pleasure is that my said estate both real and personal be equally divided between my said wife and children when by said children shall arrive at the age of one and twenty years, then to have and receive their said parts, and portions paid them. And in case my said child or children should depart this life before they arrive at the age aforesaid, then my said estate to be equally divided between my said wife and the surviving child or children. And I do hereby nominate, constitute, and appoint my said loving wife, Mary Hearne, to be my executrix of this my last will and testament. And Mr. Francis Jenkins and Mr. John Cornish overseares of this my last will, whom I request to help and assist my said executrix in the performance of my said will.
"In testamony whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal this 28th day of March, Anno Domini 1691.
William Hearne (seal)"

"When we consider that William was born more than three hundred fifty years ago, we conclude that we actually have quite a lot of information on him and his life. Certainly, more than is known of many later generations. I believe that this is due to the personality and character of William himself, more than any research efforts of present ‘ancestor hunters.’ In my mind, the mental picture of William emerges as a shrewd businessman, successful, well educated, meticulous about details of record keeping, with a keen sense of history. Obviously, he was concerned with preserving family history - he had the births of his two sons recorded in official records at a time it was almost unheard of to do so. This gives additional credence to the story that he had in his possession a book tracing his genealogy to the day of the Norman Conquest in 1066. I believe such a book did indeed exist.

“Nothing is known of his life in the West Indies, except he lived there for over twenty years, and carried on a trade in goods between the Islands, Britain, and the Colonies. Considering history, one can hardly fail to wonder if part of his trade was connected to slavery, even while hoping otherwise!

Regardless of our personal curiosity and speculation, we return to the known facts. "William was buried on an elevated piece of ground on his farm which became a family burying grounds for himself, his wife, son, and other descendants. A permanent granite monument was placed at the site in later years, and this small cemetery is still in existence today. I quote from a correspondent who visited this cemetery. ‘... the little cemetery is enclosed with a wrought iron fence, and the stones are in good condition. Pretty, old-fashioned roses growing... It was in the midst of a barley field with no evidence of any old residence nearby.’

Phyllis Ehlers writes... "My documentation for his (William Hearne) life before America is supplied by Magna Carta Dames. Actually, they gave no documentation. They simply said this is it. William Herne(Hearne) was the emigrant born in England. He and his twin brother Robert were christened Sept. 2, 1627 in St. Vedasts, Foster Lane, London. He may have been married first in 1649 to Mary Kinsman (St. Peter Poor,Middlesex). She died in the West Indies. He married second, Mary Cuthbert (Ref. pg. 110, Series 1 , East Anglican Marriages, London). Died, will proved Somerset Co., Md. No. 10,1691.

Remember that there are about 4 or 5 William's roaming around here and England at the same time. The only 100% facts in above paragraph is that when William died in 1691 in Maryland, his wife was named Mary. Again, according to Magna Carta Dames, William was the son of Nicholas Herne, Gentleman of London who married 1612 his first wife, Elizabeth, daughter of Nicholas Hooker, aLondon goldsmith. The marriage date of Nicholas and Elizabeth can be confirmed. I have no actual proof that they were William's parents. Nicholas Herne was the son of Richard Herne, merchant tailor, elect
Alderman of London Oct. 20, 1618. Died Feb. 24, 1624. Married Alice Paske, daughter of John Paske of Cambridge. These facts can all be documented. 
HEARNE, William (I7629)
 
5207 William Hearne, tanner and carpenter, son of Thomas and Sarah (Newbold) Hearne, was listed in his father’s household in 1743 tax list for Wicomico Hundred, Somerset Co., and was mentioned in his father’s will (1762): ‘Also I give and bequeath to James Hearne the son of William Hearne one hundred and ffifty Acres of Land taken out of a Tract of Land Called Stains.’

William Hearne was named with ‘Brothers and Sisters to the Deceased’ in an account, estate of his brother, John Hearne (d. 1765) (even though William pre-deceased him). Inventory of estate of ‘William Hearne Jun.r’ was taken on 17 Apr 1754 by Robert Twilley and William Vennables and witnessed by brothers George and Thomas Hearne, jr., and George Parker. Inventory totaled £129.18.10 and included a Negro woman called Judah, one Negro girl called Meritty, a desk and bookcase, ‘one small Dear Skin … Parcel of Tanners Tools’ and many carpenter’s tools. Susana Hern verified, on 18 June 1854, the inventory of William Hearne ‘that came to her hands or Possession … at the time of his Death.’

Written on cover of original account for William Hern, submitted 5 Feb 1755, is ‘James & Purnall, Children to Inherit the Ball.’ An additional 10 shillings was added for a ‘Steel Trap found since the appraisment,’ bringing total of William’s estate to £130.17.11.

Hearne, BRIEF HISTORY AND GENEALOGY OF THE HEARNE FAMILY; 1627-1907; 1907, Examiner Printing Company, Independence, Missouri; pp. 467-468; FHL Microfilm #0553999; NOTES: Emigrated to Onslow Co., North Carolina, about 1767; moved to Montgomery, NC near the Yadkin River. CHILDREN: Hearne lists 12 children in this order: "Thomas, George, Nancy Rachel, William, Ebenezer, Elizabeth, Abner, Edmond, Howell, Stephen, Drewry, and John W." However, the birth dates he provides for some of the children conflict with this order. He provides no explanation for this inconsistency.
===
Tucker in Montgomery, see LIFE sources. Tucker names the 12 children in this order: William, Stephen, Edmond, Elizabeth, Drewery, Abner, Ebenezer, John, Howell, Nancy Rachel, Thomas, George. Tucker notes that William, Ebenezer, and Stephen stayed in Montgomery, while all the other children moved to Tennessee.
===
CONFLICTS: The order of children offered by Hearne, and Tucker are different, but the names of the children are exactly the same. Tucker's order does not significantly better match the dates provided by Hearne.

RESEARCH: 7/8/98. Yadkin River flows from Yadkin down on the west of Montgomery and flows into the PeeDee river.

!CENSUS: There is a Thomas is found in Montgomery, N.C. in 1790 census. See sources. This Thomas has one male over 16, one under 16, and one female.

!MILITARY: "Thomas prosepered in North Crolin, till the outbreak of the Revolutionary War, since he had taken an oath of allegiance to the King, he refused to bear arms against his neighbors, which cost him to lose most of his property. Some of his sons, however, did serve for the Americans in the War." (Tucker, in LIFE sources.)

Thomas Hearne (Heron) (31 May 1691-1762), Gent., planter, son of William and Mary ____ Hearne, inherited from his father part of plantation, St. Kitts, although there was no clear title until Thomas Hearne had tract surveyed and patent for 50 a. was issued 11 Dec 1759.

In 1709 Thomas Hearne witnessed will of Hugh Porter, and he is mentioned in will of Thomas Newbold (1712) [Chapter 16], states, ‘to my daughter Sarah, wife of Thomas Hearne…’ Judicial records indicate that Thomas Hearne was involved in lawsuits with Thomas Layfield and Thomas May in 1718. Thomas Hearne first appears in Somerset Co. tax lists in 1724. In 1728 he was the official who authored, in a strong, flowing script, ‘A trew List of taxable persons of Wekacomocoe hundred’ [see signature from this tax list above].

In 1739 tax list for Somerset Co., Wicomico Hd., he lived in Household 692 with his son, Nehemiah Hearne, and one slave. On 19 Aug 1730 Thomas Hearne, with his brother William, bought an 850 a. tract called Stanes (Stains), originally patented by Col. William Stevens 2 July 1682, from Thomas Layfield, Gent., and his wife, Catherine (Katherine, nee Newbold, who m., second, 15 May 1733 - 9 Feb 1736/7, James Breeman), Thomas Hearne’s brother-in-law and sister-in-law. Thomas’s share, 425 a. on westernmost side, was paid for with 10,000 lbs. of tobacco.

In a 1759 boundary dispute between Md. and Del., ‘Thomas Hearne, Gent., Aged Sixty nine’ deposed that in 1732 he was ‘Sub sheriff to Joshua Caldwell high Sheriff of then Somerset County’ (now Worcester Co.), and in 1731 was present when ‘John Caldwell [Chapter 14]then Deputy Surveyor of Somerset County’ surveyed lands which were ‘the Division between the Province of Maryland and the County of Sussex.’ Hearns Venture (Adventure), a 100 a. tract, was surveyed by David Wilson on 28 Nov 1740 for Thomas Hearne, although it was not patented until 29 Sep 1760. The tract, ‘lying of a branch of ye afsd. River commonly called Chaldwells Branch,’ had 19 a. of cultivated land ‘with fence railes’ and included ‘two hundred & twenty eight apples trees, one pare tree, a hundred peach trees & eleven Cherry trees,’ and six log structures: ‘a Logged Tobb.o (tobacco) house twenty & Sixteen an old Logd house fifteen & twelve one d:o (log house) ten feet square & three Loggd Corn Stacks.’

In addition to corn, Thomas Hearne also grew tobacco for a number of years on his plantation: not only did he have a tobacco ‘house,’ he possessed more than a ton of tobacco, recorded in an additional inventory of his estate on 3 Aug 1762, valued at £13.8.4 (by Joseph Scrogin, sub sheriff, Elijah Hearne, and Jonathan Harne). In an account filed 2 July 1764, Thomas Hearne, Jr., paid 1036 lbs. of tobacco to officials (Ephraim King, Thomas Holbrook) for fees regarding his father’s estate; he allowed £2 ‘of this accountants account for finding Two Tobacco Hogeshead and Prising2147 pounds of Tobacco and Carying it to the warehouse.’ Thomas Hearne deeded part of Stains, for 10 shillings each, to two of his sons in 1745: on 21 Sep Nehemiah Hearne received 125 a., and on 11 Dec George Hearne received 150 a. In the tax list for 1754, five Negroes were listed in the household of Thomas Heron, Sr.; and on 10 Apr of that year he patented Eagle Tower, a 100 a. tract, which he deeded to his son Thomas Hearne, Jr., on 17 Nov 1759.

Thomas Hearne m., before 9 Feb 1712, Sarah Newbold (b. Somerset Co. 1 Nov 1691), dau. of Thomas (Justice of Peace, d. 1713) and Jane Newbold, of Acquintica, a plantation on Pocomoke R., and had issue: (1) William, before 1727, (2) George, before 1718, (3) Ebenezer, before 1730, (4) Thomas, before 1717, (5) Nehemiah, before 1717, (6) John, (7) Elizabeth, (8) Jemima, (9) Mary, m. Joshua Morgan, (10) Sarah, (11) Ann(e), (12) Esther, m. Benjamin Vinson. It has been stated that Thomas Hearne m. Sally Wingate, but no substantiating information has been found. Presumably Sarah (Newbold) Hearne, d. before 1745, as there is no record of her releasing dower rights in any of the deeds in which her husband transferred property to his sons. Among bequests in Thomas Hearne’s will, all to his children and grandchildren, were 11 Negroes, farm animals, various household items, including 2 ½ dozen large leather chairs, 2 Indian bowls, 3 silk rugs, old books, 4 old account books, a Bible, testament, a prayer book, an 80 gal. Cask, and 11 other casks of different sizes. John Hearne received 100 a. of Hearns Venture, 50 a. of St. Kitts, and 50 a. of Tower Hill. Thomas’ inventory, dated 16 June 1762, totaled L631.8.3.”

Abstracts of the above mentioned deeds of Thomas Hearne to this sons are as follows:
Indenture dated 21 September 1745. Thomas Hearn, Gentl. of Somerset County to Nehemiah Hearn, sadler, of same county; for 10 shillings, 125 acres of a tract called Staines (originally granted to Colo. Wm.
