David "Good Ole Captain David" Crawford II1

M, b. circa 1662, d. July, 1762
FatherDavid Crawford I2,1 b. circa 1625, d. circa 1710
     David "Good Ole Captain David" Crawford II David Crawford was appointed as Captain of a troop of cavalry in the Colonial Virginia Militia. In this capacity David was given the honor of proclaiming George I, King of Great Britain, when George ascended the throne on 1714. (Memoirs of the Crawford Family, p. 19 & National Society of the Daughters of the Am. Colonists, Vol. XVIII, Item 17768) He rode from settlement to settlement in New Kent County announcing the reign of the new King.

David and Elizabeth resided in New Kent County until the place where they lived was divided off to form Hanover County. David became prominent in St. Peter's Parish of New Kent County, where he was elected vestryman on June 23, 1687. This was followed by him becoming warden in 1698 and holding this office in 1700, 1701 and 1704. The church offices of vestryman and warden of the Church of England may not seem as though they carried much importance, but it should be kept in mind that in Colonial Virginia the Church of England was the established church and is essentially part of the government. Citizens were required to attend services and pay a tax in support of the Church. The offices of vestryman and warden were only filled by the most respected and trustworthy citizens in a parish.

St Paul's Parish was split from St Peter's Parish in April 1704. Nicholas Meriwether and Captain David Crawford were appointed trustees for St Paul's Parish to settle the financial accounts between the two parishes. (Memoirs of the Crawford Family, pg.. 19) Hanover County was formed from New Kent County in 1720. At this time David's place of residence fell in Hanover, where he remained until joining his eldest son, David, moving west to Amherst County, Virginia.

It appears that Captain David inherited some of his father's property in New Kent/Hanover, as well as possibly acquiring some on his own. It is difficult to obtain an accurate account of landownership in Virginia because over the past two hundred years many records have been destroyed or lost.

David's father also left at least one four hundred acre tract of land to one of his Meriwether grandsons, William, and two hundred acres to his grandson, David Meriwether. (Hening's Statutes-at-Large of VA, Vol. 5, pp.257-259 and pp.300-302) Captain David Crawford's plantation in Hanover County is believed to have been situated on a 1,300 acres tract in Hanover in St. Paul's Parish. He also owned a 196 acre and a 277 acre tract of land near his primary residence.

Captain David moved with the family of his son, David, to Albemarle County, which later became Amherst County Virginia. The best estimate of the date that Captain David migrated westward is 1752. (Memoirs of the Crawford Family, pg. 13) With both Captain David Crawford and his wife Elizabeth being quite elderly at the time of their move, it seems likely that their son's family took them in because they would probably not be fully capable of taking care of themselves. Yet, there are references to Captain David settling in the area that would become Nelson County.

Captain David passed away some time in 1762 as evidenced by the probation of his will on September 6, 1762. (Memoirs of the Crawford Family p. 19 & Register of Ancestors of the Col. Dames of Am., p. 27). David's will was dated December 1, 1761 and in it he refers to himself as "anciant" (sic). A copy of his will has been found and its transcription will be a feature in a future article. Based on his estimated date of birth, Captain David passed the century mark, which seems quite remarkable for the age in which he lived. Nevertheless, there are so many references to David living to see his 100th birthday that it is difficult not to accept his longevity as fact. According to those who researched the Crawford family in the late 19th century, of which there were several, David was interred at the forks of the Stony Battle Road, just east of the Three Ridge Mountain in Nelson County, Virginia.

Not to be out done by her husband, Elizabeth Crawford outlived him. Proof of this is that she is mentioned in both her husband's and son David's wills. Her son's will was drafted in June 1766. This assures us that Elizabeth at least witnessed the 101st anniversary of her birth. Again, both David and Elizabeth enjoyed extreme longevity during a time when medical treatment and the simplest understanding of daily health care were primitive at best. What medical care that did exist was extremely scarce on the western frontier, which Amherst County was in the 1750s.

David Crawford II

David Crawford II, the son of Captain Crawford reached his maturity in the lower end of Hanover County, Virginia. He was reared in the emerging life style of a Virginia gentleman, yet retained enough pioneering spirit to venture west to the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains when it became too costly to expand his land holdings in Hanover.

Before moving west David II married Ann Anderson in Hanover County in about the year 1728. Ann was the daughter of John and Sarah (nee Waddy) Anderson of Hanover County. There is some evidence, although only circumstantial, that the Crawfords and Andersons had connections dating back to their homes in Scotland. In fact, it is possible that a union existed between branches of both respective families who remained in Scotland, as evidenced by the union of one George Crawford, Esq. of Glasgow to a Peggie Anderson of the same town. We know about this marriage by a letter that has survived dated 1748, which would make George Crawford, Esq. a contemporary of Captain David and David II. More research is required to verify this possible connection. It could prove to be no more than an interesting coincidence.

Following their marriage, David and Ann Crawford farmed on land located on the South Ann River, near Beech Creek Ford, in Hanover County. (Memoirs of the Crawford Family, pg. 22) In 1752 David II moved his family, including his parents, to what was than Albemarle County at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. It should be recalled that it was about this time that Nicholas Davies resettled in Albemarle County. The place where both David Crawford and Nicholas Davies settled eventually became Amherst County, although a portion of the hugh land grant owned by Davies was situated in Bedford County, Virginia.

Reviewing various surviving land records in Albemarle and Amherst Counties indicate that David II owned relatively modest acreage, especially when compared with Nicholas Davies' one tract of between 31,000 and 34,000 acres in Amherst and Bedford Counties. David II purchased 411 acres in Albemarle County from Mr. Robert Barnett in 1752. Between 1752 and 1758 David added about an additional 200 acres to his holdings in Amherst County and possibly another 400 acres purchased in 1752 in the part of Amherst County that became incorporated into the new county of Nelson. It is unclear whether the Nelson County land was purchased by him or his father, Captain David Crawford. Since the deed states that the land was sold by Landon Hughes to David Crawford, Jr. the author favors the assumption that this land was purchased by Captain Crawford. The Memoirs of the Crawford Family, however, suggest that this acreage was bought by David II, the son of Captain David.2 He was buried; He was interred in the forks of the Stony Battle road, about one hundred yards west of the spring, in Nelson Co., east of the Three Ridge mountain at its base, about one mile west of the house owned by Ryland Rodes, at a large stone pile.1 He was born circa 1662 at New Kent Co., Virginia.2,3,1 He married Elizabeth Smith circa 1696 at Virginia.2,1 David "Good Ole Captain David" Crawford II died in July, 1762 at Amherst Co., Virginia.2,1 He left a will on September 6, 1762 at Amherst Co., Virginia; Will of David Crawford Dated Dec 1, 1761 and proved Sep 6, 1762 in Amherst Co., Virginia. In the name of God, amen, I, David Crawford , of Amherst County, am ancient and not in health; but in perfect senses, and not knowing the time of my death, do make this my last Will and Testment. First, I recommend my soul to Almighty God, that gave it, trusting through the merits of the exalted Redeemer to receive free pardon for all my sins.

Champness to have Ben, Elizabeth to have Abram, and if any of the above said children of my daughter Judith should die without issue, that then legacy to descend to my daughter Judith's youngest children to be equally divided among them. Item, If my son-in-law Joseph Terry, should prove any right to my negro wench Annekey, which I have given to my son David, by this will, and by deed of gift recorded in Hanover Court, which I know of none he has, then my son David is to have a full right and property to three of the said negros I have left my daughter Judith above mentioned, the right to cease in my daughter and right to cease in her three children as above mentioned and the right to be wholy invested in him and his heirs forever, namely, Savory, Abram and Ben, is the negros to be returned to my son David.
