Hudgeons/Hudgens/Hudgins
Buckingham and Cumberland Counties, Virginia Gleanings


The following gleanings were found during my research on the Cumberland and Buckingham Hudgens/Hudgins. Related Hudgens records have been found in Amelia, Goochland, Powhatan, Buckingham and Cumberland Counties. I use both spellings of the Hudgens surname, however, if the official record shows one preference it is the one I use. This does not mean that it is the true spelling used by that individual. As anyone who has researched the Hudgens knows the surname spelling can change in an instance between records. Spellings I have encountered during my research are: Huchens, Huchins, Hugin, Hugen, Hudgin, Hudgen, Hudgeons, Hudgens, and Hudgins. It is hoped that these gleaning will help sort out the numerous Hudgens families found in these areas.

I am not including the Tidewater Hudgins in these gleanings. There is a possibility that these two families are related but no documented proof has been found to prove it.

My Maternal Grandfather was Benjamin Joshua Hudgens of Madison County, Kentucky. His father was Thomas W. Hudgens and his father was Benjamin Hudgens/Hudgins of Cumberland County, Virginia. Thomas W. Hudgens served in the "Black Eagle Rifles" of Cumberland County, Virginia during the Civil War.

I have tried to include the sources for most of the information found here. If you have questions regarding the information listed here please email me at:

Marriages


NOTE:
From: Katherine B. Elliott. Marriage Records 1749-1840 Cumberland County, Virginia. Privately published, 1969. "Many of the marriage bonds of Cumberland County have been lost, and many of the surviving bonds are now fragmented. All of the bonds for the years 1766, 1777, 1778 and 1781 have been lost, apparently, as none for these years were found among the bonds now extant. Only one bond for the year 1782 is now extant. There are no extant bonds for the years 1783, 1796, 1799, 1800, 1801 and 1802."

John Hudgens: Statement of William Gibson, Amherst County, Virginia (Stated before Charles Munday, Justice of the Peace in Amherst Co., Virginia on April 11, 1820: William Gibson states that the allegations are not true. The several deeds were signed by several persons therein. Those persons were legally entitled to the land in contest as heirs of claimants under John Hudgens, Senior and John Hudgens, Junior (both at this time deceased). He knows of no other will. He denies that Boaz Ford or any other executor had any power to make any contract in relation to the sale of the land in contest. He believes Boaz Ford never did exercise or attempt to exercise that power. He doesn't believe Ford gave Carson any assurance whatever that Carson should have land. He believes that Boaz Ford is dead (as well as James and Moses Hudgens, but how long he doesn't recollect). Boaz Ford had a son who lived in Green COunty and the son is dead. He knows nothing of the heirs of Boaz Ford now living in Green County. If there be 7 heirs, then defendant can show them. He further states that James Hudgens was alive on the 16th day of July 1810 and made a deed and he knows nothing of his death since. The tract is small and not conveniently divisible.

Possible Early Records of Hudgens in Virginia

Edward Hutchings, Record Bk. 16, p 100. 10 September 1703. "Notice that there be no trading or dealing with Ann Hutchings, wife of Edward Hutchings of Southfarnham Parish, except at their own peril." Signed Edward Hutchings. [Some Ambrose Hudgens, contemporary of Robert and John Hudgens, lines show his father as Edward Hudgens]

Jane Hutchens of Southfarnham Parish, Essex County, Virginia Deed Bk. 14, p. 89. Deed of Gift, gives "my children Richard Hutchens, John Hutchens, and Catherine Hutchens" 25 pounds sterling to each child to be delivered at coming of age Date 10 November 1712.
[The Holloways, Parkers, and Meadors families are all living in Essex County at this time]

John Huchens, Carpenters Mate; These men Whose names are heere vnder written belonginge vnto the Friendshipe of London, nowe ridinge att An Ankere in the reuer of Themes bound for Vergenia: March 1636 From: The Original Lists of Persons of Quality, ed. John C. Hooten

John Hodgen 18 February 1638, Patent Bk #1, pt. 2, Mr. Robert Bennett, 200 acs, for transport of 4 persons; John Hodgen.

John Huchins Patent Bk. 5, 5 April 1664, p. 302 Nancimum County, Virginia. transport of 12 persons; John Street, William Jones, Mary Watkins, John Huchins....

John Hugens Certificate of the Disposall of the Rebels sent by Mr. Nepho. Second day of February 1685, Sir William Booth's receipt for the Prisoners within mencon'd on the Account of James Kendall Esq. to be sent to Barbados. [includes the name of Mathew Hughens] Later John Hugens is indentured to Capt. Tobias Frere. John Hugens departed England from Weymouth, England.

Richard Huchens Record Bk 16, Essex County, Virginia, p 253. Account of tobacco due the estate of Phill Parr dec'd, 10 June 1704, Richard Huchens

Richard Hutchens Essex County, Deed Bk. 14, pp, 84, 87, 88, Inv. of the estate of Richard Hutchens, 1 ferry boat, 2 ropes, a plush sadle for a woman and hackney, 5 books, 4 runletts 1 washing tubb, 1 little piggin. 9 October 1712. Presented by Jane Hutchen and Robert Parsons, Execur's Wit: Francis Adcocke, James Webb, William Broocke
[This is probably one of the more interesting early records I have come across in researching the Hudgens surname. Most family legends regarding the Hudgens revolve around the notion that they were involved with ship building. The inclusion of a ferry boat in this inventory is not conclusive evidence but merely an interesting coincidence. Robert Parker (sub sheriff) signed the Bond to the Will of Richard Hutchens. Robert Parker's daughter Martha Parker would later marry in ca. 1739, Robert Hudgens of Caroline County].

William Huchins: 8 August 1735 Caroline County, Virginia Order Book, p. 305. Petition. Roger Quarles agst. William Huchins. Judgement is granted plaintiff for 2.15.11 current money

William Hutchings: 14 May 1736 Caroline County, Virginia Order Book, p. 341. Jonas Meador, overseer of the road from the Doag Town road to William Hutchings (this same William's last name is spelled Hutchins and Huchins in other court documents)
Another interesting record. Many people record Francis Hudgens as the wife of Jonas Meador. Francis would have been a contemporary of Robert, William Sr. and John Hudgens. I personally believe that this "William Huchins/Hutchins" is the William Hudgens, Sr. who would move to Cumberland County, Virginia. Other names closely associated with the Hudgens family living during this period in Caroline County: John Holloway, Hans Hendrick, and Robert Parker, and Jonas Meador.
