Jonathan Gibson Part One

I suspect this newspaper article from The Courier-Journal (Louisville, Kentucky) Sunday, September 19, 1897 may be the reason so many people want to connect Jonathan Gibson to the Charles City County Gibson families.  They may very well be related, perhaps someone may discover a document that connects them or even DNA matches.  If you have anything at all to connect Jonathan's family to the Charles City County Gibson line I would love to hear from you.







The information published in 1897 is not correct - Jonathan Gibson was born 1668 in High Knipe, Bampton, Westmoreland, England. He was the son of Richard Gibson and a Miss Wilson.  Richard was the brother of Thomas Gibson who married the granddaughter of Oliver Cromwell and also the brother of Edmund Gibson who married to Jane Langhorne, the latter being the parents of the Bishop Edmund Gibson. 

Jonathan Gibson the First married to Elizabeth Thornton, he  made his will on 30th of 7ber 1727 and it was  presented into court in King George County on the 5th of December 1729 by his widow ELIZABETH and admitted to record.  He was the father of Jonathan Gibson the Second born about 1700 and died by accidental poisoning in Faquier County, Virginia in 1724. 

Jonathan Gibson the Second married to Margaret Catlett. In 1732 Jonathan Gibson the Second penned this letter to the Bishop Edmund Gibson, a cousin of his father, as Richard Gibson and the Bishop's father, Edmund Gibson I were brothers.

His brother James GIBSON became incumbent of Wootton Underwood co Bucks and was the father of the a/m Executor James GIBSON (Jesus College, Oxford in 1712 aged 15, Rector of Hockerton, 1722). It has not been possible to identify with certainty the other Executor. Edmund GIBSON was probably a cousin - he was the son of Edmund GIBSON of Knipe co Westmorland.

Sometime in the 1980s or 1990s this was re-published in the KENTUCKY EXPLORER but they left off the last paragraph in which G.G.A is asking if there is any truth to this claim.

Langhorne-Gibson
Very early a family of Gibsons settled in Charles City County,Virginia, on the James River. It could have possibly been the family of Jonathan Gibson. Some of the family records show that he came later to the Rappahannock. Jonathan was sheriff of King George County in 1701-2; burgess for Caroline County, 1736; in or about 1740 became the second county clerk of Orange County; and in 1744 he died from accidental poisoning. He was a brother of Edmund Gibson, bishop of London. They were the sons of Edmund Gibson and Jane Langhorne Gibson. Bishop Gibson wished to adopt one of his nephews in this country. Col. Catlett Gibson, of Culpeper, read the letter to his grandfather on the subject. The unexpected and uncongenial marriage of the bishop, late in life, broke off the negotiations.

Jonathan Gibson, according to the Catlett records and the universal traditions of the Gibsons, married Margaret Catlett, daughter of Col. John Catlett, of "Green Hill Estate;" at or about where is now Port Royal. This Col. John Catlett came from Letterbaume Parish, Kent County, England, and owned lands there, which his grandchildren inherited. He was killed by the Indians in 1670, at the attack on the fort near Port Royal. Margaret Catlett was an aunt of Rebecca Catlett, who married Frances Conway, and was the mother of President James Madison; hence Jonathan Gibson became sponsor of the president.


Rebecca Catlett Conway married James Moore. Their daughter, Jane Moore, married Erasmus Taylor, of Orange County.

Rachel Gibson Taylor was buried in the old Taylor graveyard, near Orange Courthouse; and her husband, George Taylor, who died in 1792, long after Rachel, was buried at her side.

Bishop Gregg, in his History of Old Cheraws, says, "In 1735 two important settlements were made on the Pedee, South Carolina. One of these was in Button's Neck, 20 miles below Mars Bluff and 40 miles above Georgetown. The other settlement referred to was made at a point on the east side of the river, called Sandy Bluff, two and a half miles above Mars Bluff. The families of Crawford, Saunders, Murfree, Crosby, Heighly, Berry, and shortly after, the Gibsons made up this community.


"Of the settlers at Sandy Bluff, the Murfrees, Saunders, Gibsons, and Crawfords accumulated the largest properties and became most prominent. Of the Gibsons, Gideon and Jordan were brothers. The latter went to the West as companion of Daniel Boone. Gideon Gibson came with his father from Virginia to Pedee. There is a public record of a grant to him for 550 acres of land, as early as April 1736. He settled at a place called 'Hickory Grove,' five miles from Sandy Bluff, on a large and fertile body of land, long after noted as the most valuable in that region. He had three sons. Of these, Stephen became wealthy and removed to Georgia about the year 1800. Roger, another son, removed to the West before the Revolution. Gideon Gibson was a man of very marked character, of commanding influence, and prominently connected with the leading events of the region, in which he lived. His death took place during the Revolution. He was shot at his own front door by his nephew, Col. Maurice Murphy, because he blamed Murphy for unnecessary cruelty to a Tory prisoner. Murphy was a man of ungovernable passion, which was often inflamed by strong drink."


The tradition in the family is that Gideon Gibson's father, who came from Virginia with him, was the "emigrant," and the father of Jonathan, Jordan, Edmund, the Bishop, and the first husband of Mrs. Saunders Murphy; who never came to this country, but whose five sons came with their mother.

Jonathan Gibson Part Two

Misc Notes

Jonathan Gibson married Elizabeth Thornton Conway.


William Thornton, late of Gloucester Co., but not of  Stafford Co., Power of Attorney to Jonathan Gibson of Richmond Co., to acknowledge D. of G. to his 4 children,  1708

Jonathan Gibson established Gibsons Tobacco Warehouse on the Rappahannock on the dower land of his wife, Elizabeth Thornton Conway Gibson; it was located immediately opposite Port Royal in Caroline County across and on the south bank of the Rappahannock River.

Jonathan Gibson -Bishop Gibson and Governor Gooch

161-2. Jonathan Gibson to George Gibson, Apr. 27, 1731. He has refused a post under the tobacco law, as duties and penalties are too heavy, but he hopes that a word from the bishop will prompt the governor to favour him in other ways. Refers to an uncle, Matthew Gibson. Letter is brought by (Rodham) Kenner, curate of the parish, who is returning for priest's orders.

175-6. Francis Peart to George Gibson, Apr. 15, 1732. He is settled in a parish (St. Stephen's, Northumberland County) largely, he thinks, due to Gibson's good offices with the bishop. He introduces John Boyd, who has been practising medicine in Virginia, but, unwilling to charge the exorbitant fees exacted by most practitioners, has decided to enter the ministry. Regrets to hear of death of Lady Cromwell. Jonathan Gibson is well, and so are 'the old gentlewoman' and her family.

177. Jonathan Gibson to (George Gibson?), Caroline County, May 4, 1732. Asks him to secure the bishop's intercession with Governor Gooch to give him the next vacancy as naval officer or clerk of the county court. Encloses letters to uncles Matthew and George.


207-8. William Gooch to Bishop Gibson, June 20, 1734. Apologizes for not having found a post for Jonathan Gibson. Offered him the post of tobacco inspector, but he declined, though he obtained it for a friend. Only naval-officer post available would have required him to move from his plantation. He will give him a clerk's place when one is convenient to his residence.

215-16. Governor William Gooch to Bishop Gibson, Jan. 14, 1734(5). Grateful to the bishop for accepting his excuse for not doing something for Jonathan Gibson.

251-2. Governor William Gooch to Bishop Gibson, Mar. 3, 1736/7. Introduces --- Read, who is going home for priest's orders. Governor has not yet been able to find a post that will suit Jonathan Gibson.

293-4. Jonathan Gibson to Bishop Gibson, May 9, 1741. He has finally obtained a lucrative post, that of clerk to the County of Orange, but he credits it to John Carter, the Secretary, not to Governor Gooch.

William Gibson - Nicholas Catlett

Wm. Gibson's will (Old Rappahannock Wills, #2, p.68), dated May 14, 1676, was probated Feb 7, 1677/8. In this he mentions his wife, Mary, his daughter, Elizabeth, to whom he devised land bought of Nicholas Catlett."

"On March 18, 1722/3, he (Thomas Powell) and his wife, Mary (Essex Co. Deed Book 17, p.159), conveyed to John Jeter one moiety of a tract of land granted to Richard West and Roger Clothworthy and by said Roger conveyed to Nicholas Catlett and by him sold to Wm. Gibson. John kept the property only a few years and his deed of sale, besides reciting the above facts, adds that Wm. Gibson devised the land to his daughter, Elizabeth Gibson, who was the mother of Mary Powell (ibid. D.B. 19, p.190), the wife of Thomas,(Jr).

These are the siblings of Jonathan Gibson, sons of Richard Gibson


Descendants of Johnathan Gibson & Margaret Thronton

This is not my direct line but notes and such that I have saved over the years in search of the ancestors of Thomas Gibson of New Kent/Hanover County, died 1734.  To date I have not been able to connect this family to any other Gibson family although the William Gibson of the Rappahannock appears to have settled in Virginia before Jonathan.  There is also a George Gibson that does not appear to be a descendant of Jonathan.

You will no doubt find mistakes, or you may have additions, etc., please let me know if you can fill in any of the blanks.
