Kansas.), and died 1654 in Northumberland County, Virginia. He married

1624, and died Bet. 1666 - 1670 in Northumberland County, Virginia.
- Notes for JOHN
VA Genealogies #3 1600s-1800s p470.
Northumberland County was originally divided into two parish. The upper
part of the country was called Chicacone and the lower part Wicocomoco,
from the two small groups of Indians living in these sections.
- On Feb 4, 1664,
a member of the Court purposed that the name of the parish of Chicacone
be changed to Fairfields and that of Wicocomoco to Lee Parish...Colonial
Richard Lee had lately seated a plantation on the Diving Creek and the
change proposed may have been in his honor, or it may have been in honor
of Hugh Lee Clerke.

of Counties of Virginia web site:
Upper Norfolk name changed to Nansemond. Northumberland was part of
the Northern Neck of the Fairfax Grant, and it was created in 1645 out
of the former Chickakoan Indian District.

Sowa her book My Ingram Family: During his first few years in Northumberland
county, 1651 through 1654 John Ingram was a juryman, a Government agent,
owned a large amount of land, owned a boat, and made many transactions.
His land was said to be upon Dividing Creek. Dividing Creek is a stream
following 3.5 miles into Chesapeake bay. It is said to be called Dividing
Creek because it divides a short distance upstream from its mouth. (Place-names
of Northern Neck of Virginia, by Mary R. Miller, pub by Virginia State

Sowa: Wicomico in the early days of settlement probably around the south
of the Great Wiciomico River and south of the Little Wicomico River,
and north of Lancaster County. Wicomico Parish was established by the
General Assembly about 1648.

neighbors and acquintances were Thomas Gaskins, Henry Mayes, Lawrence

- John Ingram's only
son Thomas was about eight years old when his father died. Thomas Ingram's
young life came under the control of a guardian at the time of his father's
death. This guardian was Thomas Hopkins who would marry his mother Jane
within the year.
- During the time
of the history women probably married very young and did not live very
long or died during childbirth. If a woman became a widow it would not
be long before she was soon married especially if she was economically
- Some researchers
have Jane's last name as Coker
- Notes for JANE:
After the death of John Ingram, Jane married married Thomas Hopkins.

- John Ingram was
the first son of Thomas Ingram his father. The law in those days was
that the father passed on the land to their first sons, and if they
did not have heirs it seems to be that Thomas left his estate to John's

JOHN1) (Source: Iona Ingram Sowa book My Ingram Family, William and Mary
Quarterly Vol IV and Virginia Genealogies V25.) was born Abt. 1680 in
Wicomico Parish, Northumberland County, Virginia, and died 11 Feb 1760
in Northumberland County, Virginia. He married (1) ELIZABETH DAMERON (Source:
Virginia Vital Records #3 1600-1800's cd #187.) Abt. 1701 in Northumberland
County, Virginia, daughter of GEORGE DAMERON and ELIZABETH TAYLOR. She
was born 1681 in Wicomico Parish, Northumberland County, Virginia. He
married (2) MARY WADDY (Source: Iona Ingram Sowa book My Ingram Family,

1716 in Northumberland County, Virginia, daughter of BENJAMIN WADDY and
JANE WADDY. She was born Abt. 1701 in Northumberland County, Virginia,
and died Bet. 1754 - 1760.
- Notes for CHARLES
Through Charles Ingram's marriage to Elizabeth Dameron a part of the
Dameron line begins.
- 1702, April 15.
Upon petition of Charles Ingram, the Court appointed Mr. Hancock Lee,
Mr John Harris, Mr James Waddy, and Mr Bartholomew Schrever to divide
the estate of Mr. George Dameron, deceased, into four equal parts and
possess the said Charles Ingram, Who married on ofthe said Dameron's
daughters with her part of said deceased's estate. This daughter was
Elizabeth. Note that this made Charles 22 years of age at this time.
- Katherine Ingram
probably died during childbirth or shortly after. I wonder if the guardianship
of her children was placed in the hands of her father Thomas Winter
Sr? It appears that Thomas Winter Sr must have loved Charles very much
to give him two hundred acres as seen in the description of the deed
- Thanks to his maternal
uncle, Thomas Winter Sr, Charles became a property owner. In the Record
book 1706-1720 p 14. Thomas Winter, for valuable consideration, granted
