      SOURCE: THE ELKINS EAGLE, VOL. II, NO. 3 - AN ELKINS SAGA THE ELKINSFAMILY CONTRIBUTED BY: MISS WILMA BUSH TO: CAROLYNE STULTZ MAY 1987 (Taken from a North Carolina Genealogical Book) (Page 79) "TheEnglish surname Elkins is said to be a corruption of the name ALCHEN(a holder of lands in Shropshire under Edward the Confessor, the lastSaxon King of England). Ella and Alla were such frequent names amongthe Saxons that Englishmen in general were often called "ELLA-KIND,"the race of King Ella. The name appears in the Domesday Book, a greatcensus which William the Conqueror, the Norman who overcame the Saxonsin 1066, caused to be compiled. It appears in 1274 as Elekin." "Thefamily has always been small in numbers. It was early seated inLondon. There a Robert Ellkyn held office about the time when DickWhittington, owner of the famous cat, was mayor for the third time(early part of the 15th century). (NOTE: This same Whittington is adirect descendant of this compiler's two sons, Robert & WilliamWethington, and this compiler, Sandra Lee Elkins Juhl, is a directdescendant Elkin(s) as well. Interesting how the two familiesconnected again centuries later.) Somewhat later a Richard Elkins wasgranted a coat-of-arms. Still later, 1586, a William Elkin wasalderman of Cripplegate, London. In 1559, George Elkins received theBachelor of Arts degree at Oxford." "In America, the states ofVirginia, New York, and Massachusetts are associated with the name.It is listed among the Colonial Families of Pennsylvania. the nameappears in New York in 1614, about five years after Henry Hudsondiscovered the Hudson river. A Henry Elkins of Amserdam was an activemember of the Untied Company of Merchants, afterward known as the NewNetherlands Company, formed for the purpose of discovering "any newpassages, havens, countries or places." A Captain Jacob JacobsenElkins representing some London Merchants attempted to trade with theIndians in New Netherlands, later New York. The Dutch directorgeneral refused to allow him to ascend the Hudson, but Elkinsnevertheless did so. One of his men wrote: "After the fator (Elkins)had landed a good quatitie of goodes, and had erected a tente, andtraded with the Indians some few days; the Governor of the upperforte, belonging to the Dutch cominge to the said tente with otherDutchmen with him, and perceivinge, that the said Jacob JacobsenElkins was very well acquainted with the Indians, and speake theirlanguage very well, and was much beloved by them, and that they were agreat deal more willing to trade with him than with the Dutch; thesaid Governor envied att the said merchants factor and the reste ofthe Englishe, and tould them that they should trade there no longer.But the said factor thold them that they were (Page 80) the King ofEnglands subjects, and that that land was within the dominion of theKinge of England." "But the Dutch authorities by force of armscompelled Elkins to sail back down the Hudson and home to England."

      SOURCE: THE ELKINS EAGLE, VOL. II, No. 3; AN ELKINS SAGA, CONTINUED;PAGE 80 - EXCERPT - "A Ralph Elkins family in Virginia received fromGovernor Francis Moryson, a patent of land in York County January 13,1661. But he did not live there. Shortly afterward we find himlocated between the Potomac and the Rappahannock Rivers in what wasthen Westmoreland County, later King George County. He was a planterof tobacco, and his early shipments show his prosperity. He had sonsRalph and Richard, and probably others." The rest of the pages gointo two really wonderful stories about the North Carolina Elkinsfamily of Archibald Elkins. There was an Elkins family that came outof North Carolina and settled in Kentucky around the same time thatour family Elkins were there in Kentucky also. The Elkins family fromNorth Carolina married into the same Spark's family that our Elkin(s)family married into as well. So, it's quite possible that theArchibald Elkins mentioned here maybe even distantly related. Yearsof research are yet to be done on these families, but hopefully oneday we will know for certain if they are connected. [Transcribed 16September 2008, SLJuhl, Compiler]

Thus, theNorthern Neck Proprietary encompassed an area of 5,282,000 acres andincluded the present counties of Northumberland, Lancaster,Westmoreland, Richmond, Stafford, King George, Prince William,Fairfax, Loudin, Fauquier, Rappahannock, Culpeper, Frederick, Madison,Clarke, Warren, Page, Shenandoah, and in West Virginia, Hardy,Hampshire, Morgan, Berkeley and Jefferson. In 1745, much of this areawas still an unsettled wilderness. The final survey of theProprietary was accomplished by a joint commision in 1746."

Land under these companies was held as in a jointventure....ownership in the colony became a reality with the residentgovernor, acting under royal authority, granting title to specifictracts through a document called a patent. No matter the basis of thepatent - whether by head right, treasury right, or military right - ANANNUAL QUIT-RENT PAYMENT WAS RESERVED FOR THE CROWN." [Transcribed15 September 2008, SLJuhl, Compiler]
