Children of Charles and Johy Grizzle or Grissel

Narrative

     Charles Ford went first to Kentucky according to a letter written to Charles by his brother Elisha Ford. Based on family records in a file folder for Patriot James Ford Jr., grandfather of Charles, found at the DAR Library in Washington, DC, on census notations therein, Charles evidenly lived in Alabama for a period from at least 1832 through 1847 as his children born in this period are indicated as being born in Alabama. There also seems to be a conflict on marriage dates for Charles. The DAR papers indicate that he married Iphey Grizzle/Grissel in 1827 in Jackson Co., Alabama. Knox Co. Marriages 1792 to 1900 by d'Armand lists a Charles Ford married to Ithy (Johy) Grizzle on June 13, 1825. He eventually went to Missouri.

Children of James and Ann Bondurant

Narrative

     At the time of his birth, Manakin Town was in Henrico County, in 1728 it became Goochland County, in 1749 it becamd Cumberland County, and since 1777 it has been Powhatan County.

     James Ford was granted 1600 acres in Albemarle Co., Virginia. He sold his home place in King William Parish, Cumberland County (now Powhatan County) in 1751 to Thomas Posser and by his deed 200 acres to his daughter Mary Ford Agee (now married). Between 17 December 1751, and 28 February 1761, he moved up the James River to his grant of 1600 acres in Albemarle Co., Virginia, Tittetson Parish. Tilletson Parish, Albemarle Co. was then cut off to form Buckingham Co. in 1761. On 28 February 1761, he deeded 100 acres to Ann Chastain "for good causes and valuable considerations."6

     James Ford fought under George Washington in Washington's first military engagement at the Battle of Great Meadows which is in that part of the Ohio Valley that is now in Pennsylvania. George Washington wrote in a ltter to his brother John Augustine Washginton on 31 May 1754: "Three days ago we had an engagement with the French, that is, a party of our men with one of theirs. Most of our men were out upon other detachments, so I had scarcely 40 men remaining under my command, and about 10 or 12 Indians; nevertheless we obtained a most signal victory. The battle lasted about 10 or 15 minutes, with sharp firing on both sids, till the French gave ground and ran, but to no purpose. There were 12 killed of the French, among who was their commander, and 21 prisoners … P. S., I fourtunately escaped without any wound, for the right wing, where I stood, was exposed to and received all of the enemy's fire … I heard the bullets whistle, and, believe me, there is something charming in the sound. " James was wounded in the eye with a musket ball and in 1770 was awarded a pension by the House of Burgesses.

     From DAR file folder for James Ford Jr. we find the following information on James Ford Sr. -- French & Indian War 1754: "In the Journals of the House of Burgesses of Virginia 1770-1772, page 31, we find the following: Tuesday the 29th of May to George III 1770, A petition of James Ford was presented to the house and read; "setting forth, that the petitioner being in the service of the Colony, at the Battle of the Meadows in the year 1754, received a wound in his right eye, by a musket ball which deprived him of sight thereof and that he is growing old, and become week [sic] and therefore praying the House to take his condition into consideration and grant relief. Ordered, that the said petition be referred to the consideration of the Committee of Public Claims; and that they do examine the matter thereof, and report the same, with their opinion thereupon to the House." -- Page 49, Wed. the 6th of June to George III 1770. Resolved, that it is of the opinion of this Committee, that the Petition of James Ford, late a soldier in the service of the Colony, under the command of Col. Washington, is reasonable; and that he ought to be allowed the sum of five pounds for his present relief; and the future sum of five pounds per annum during his live in consideration of the would he received at the Battle of the Meadows and his being thereby rendered incapable of getting necessary substance."

     James also is on the DAR records has a patriot having supplied bacon to the Army during the Revoluntionary War.

     Revolutionary Public Service Claims: -- This is to certify that the following is a true copy of a Certificate issued to James Ford, Sen'r for supplies furnished for the use of the Army during the Revolutionary War, which said Certificate is now deposited in the manuscript division of the Virginia State Library, Richmond, Virginia, and designated "Buckingham County Public Service Claims." -- Buckingham County 22 lb Bacon @ 9d is 0.16.6 "Received of James Ford, Sen'r Twenty Pounds Bacon at Nine Pence per lb. Specie in Sixteen Shillings & Six Pence. Given under my hand this 21st May 1781." Thomas Anderson, D.C.P.

     Like his father, James was involved in several land deals. He sold 95 acres of land on 20 March 1731 to James Robinson. Then two months later he purchased 95 acres on the south side of the James River in Goochland County from Peter Buirit. His largest was a purchase of 1600 acres in Albermarle County on 17 January 1747/48. He deeded 200 acres in Albermarle County to his daughter Mary and her husband James Agee on 31 October 1751 "for in in consideration of the love and affection which he bears to … his daughter and son-in-law." He sold 200 acres on 17 December 1751 in Cumberland County to Thomas Prosser. Then on 28 February 1761 he gave 100 acres "for good causes and valuable considerations to Ann Chastain" (his daughter).

     According to a tax list that can be found in the Virginia State Library, James Ford Sr. was recorded as living in the home of Stephen Ford of Buckingham Co., Virginia, in his old age.2 Therefore, it is believed that he died in Buckingham Co.

Children of Jean and Ann Tanner

Narrative

     Jean was also known as John Peter.

     Jean Pierre was first baptised a Huguenot, then at the age of seven rebaptised a Catholic in order to preserve his right to inherit family property. With the Revocation both of his parents, and his grandfather and step-grandmother renounced their Huguenot faith and were "newly converted" Catholics.

     He was orphaned and left in the guardianship of his cousin, Andre Bondurant who was an apothecary and also the mayor of Génolhac. In September 1697, with Andre's consent, Jean Pierre's property, the mills at l'Aribal and Calquières inherited from his parents, were sold. Jean Pierre left France and arrived in Aarau, Switzerland in February 1697/98 where he joined his maternal uncle, Guillaume Barjon, Pastor of the Huguenot refugee Church there.

     On October 3, 1697, Jean Pierre recanted the Catholic faith and became a Huguenot again. The following is recorded in the congregational record:
The 3rd of October 1697, Seigneur Jean Pierre Bondurant, apothecary, presented himself in front of us, claiming that he was extremely affected by the fault he committed in his youth, which was to attend the worship of the Roman [Catholic] Church; showing his repentance by asking God to forgive this sin and after he claimed that he would live and die in our Holy Religion, he was admitted into the peace of the Church and to participate in the Holy Sacraments.
He signed this present deed along with us: Henry Malbois and Pierre Brochet, both hat makers who took refuge in the town of Aarau, and undersigned by myself:
[signed by]
Barjon
refugee Pastor
JP Bondurant
Henry Malbois
Brochet4


     Because Jean Pierre had left France with money from the sale of his mills, he did not appear on the Swiss charity records as did the Barjons and most refugee Huguenots. Being financially independent also shielded him from scrutiny and perhaps enabled him to buy his first land when he later went to Virginia.5

     He was listed as a "fugitive from the Kingdom because of religion" in 1712. This late date is not significant, as such listings were normallly late; and his father's cousin was Consul General in charge of the listings.

     In 1699, in the company of Pastor Barjon and other refugees, he went to Karlshafen, Germany. There is no record of his travel from Karlshafen to England, but he was among Huguenot refugees arriving at the mouth of the James River in Virginia on 20 September 1700 aboard the ship Ye Peter and Anthony which had sailed from England. This was the "second transport" of Huguenots from London.

     The immigrants were taken up the James River in smaller boats as far as the shoals (present day Richmond.) They went overland to Manakin Town, where they joined the "first transport" settlers who had occupied a deserted Monacan Indian village near Fine Creek the previous year. Jean stayed with the colony until 1701 and then, as a single man, went elsewhere looking for more opportunity. He practiced medicine in Henrico County (part of which later became Goochland County) for many years.6

     Jean Pierre's grandfather was a Doctor of Law and was apparently successful. His father, Jean Pierre Bondurant, Sieur de Cougoussat, Advocate, did not seem to be as successful as he was in debt when he died. At one time, Jean Pierre, the immigrant, was forced to accept public assistance from the Church of Rome. He was apprenticed to his father's cousin, Andre, a Master Apothecary, where he learned enough medicine to be accounted a Doctor in the Colonies in Virginia.

     In 1704, the Huguenot men petitioned to become citizens of the colony and by an act passed in 1705, they, including Jean Pierre, were granted citizenship by the Governor and House of Burgesses.6

     Jean Pierre obtained 200 acres of land on Old Town Creek, near present Matoaca, across the Appomattox River from Petersburg. He sold that on 29 Dec 1708 to John Wilson Sr., acknowledged in court 1 June 1709. In 1711 he registered a cattle mark with the Virginia governor. On March 24 he purchased, from the King of England, 400 acres on the south side of the James River located on Jones Creek and Matthews Branch in Henrico County, later part of Goochland County. In 1729, sons Peter and John were listed as tithables on this land, but the father does not appear on the tithables lists until 1730. This seems to indicate that the parents were living elsewhere and the sons had come ahead to prepare the new land. This land was divided among his sons in his will in 1734. Jean Peire was elected to the Vestry of King William Parish Church, but died before he could take office.7

     It is not known if he was married more than once and, if so, which children belong to each wife. A wife Ann, the mother of his son Peter, is mentioned in his will. Many researchers had thought that his wife was Ann Faure but this appears incorrect. She may have been Ann Tanner. The will of Mrs. Mary Tanner, Albermarle Co., Virginia, in the 1760s, left $1 to her daughter Ann Bondurant. Whether this is the widow of Jean Pierre has not been proven. Also, the marriage date cannot be confirmed. The date shown is given by some researchers but it has never been proven.

     In 1990 the Bondurant Family Association erected a fence and placed a commemorative plaque at the posited graves of Jean Pierre and Ann Bondurant. The graveyear is located on Birdsong Lane (Road No. 1217) near Powhatan, in Powhatan County, Virginia. The plaque reads:
To the glory of God and in memory of Jean Pierre
Bondurant and his wife Ann. Born in Génolhac,
France 18 July 1677, Jean Pierre (John Peter)
Bondurant escaped to Switzerland in 1697, and
reached Jamestown with other Huguenots in 1700.
Trained as an apothecary, he practiced medicine
in Virginia where he married Ann. Members of
King William Parish. He died near Manakin
1734/35. Their five children were John, Peter,
Joseph, Ann and Frances.
          Erected 1990 by descendants.
