      Charles Fleming was descended from Sir Tarleton Fleming, second son ofthe Earl of Wigton, Scotland, who married in England Miss Tarleton;emigrated to Virginia in 1616, landing at Jamestown, but settlingafterwards in New Kent County, (VA), where he died. He had three sonsTarlton, George and Charles -- and several daughters.
      From Descendents of John Woodson pamphlet

      Charles Fleming of St Peter's Parish, New kent, (whom Mr. Brown, in "TheCabells and their Kin," styles Colonel Charles Fleming) patented land inthat county in 1688, and in King and Queen Count in 1701. He alsopossessed considerable landed estates in the present county of Goochland(then Henrico). Accounts of surveys by Rich'd Ligon, surveyor ofHenrico, include, on November 15, 1706 one of 1430 acres for Chas.Fleming; on August 11, 1709, one of 1429 acres, and in November 1709,another of 670 acres. There is on record in Henrico, a deed, datedOctober 1717, from Charles Fleming of New Kent, 500 acres in Henrico,adjoining Fleming's Plantation. In December 1720 there was a suit inHenrico by John Fleming, executor of Chas. Fleming. The latter diedbetween 1717 and 1720, and by his marriage with Susanna-----------------, had issue:

      1. John Fleming, born November 1697; died November 6, 1756, marriedJanuary 20, 1727, Mary Bolling
      2. Tarleton Fleming
      3. Judith Fleming married (first) October 16, 1712 (St Peter's Register)Thomas Randolph of "Tuckahoe", and (second) in 1733, Nicholas Davies ofGoochland. Their marriage contract, in which John and Tarleton Fleming,gentlemen, were trustees, was dated December 24, 1733 and recorded inGoochland.
      4. Susannah Fleming married (first) John Bates of York County, and wasancestress of Edward Bates, Attorney General of the United States;Frederick Bates, Governor of Missori; James Bates of Arkansas, M. C.;and Thomas Fleming Bates, member of the Virgiia Conventon of 1829 and(second) John Woods (Wm. & Mary Quartery VI, 123 and "Cabells and theirKin"). There is on record in Goochland a ded dated April 17, 1736 fromTarlton Woodson of Henrico, to Col. John Fleming of Goochland, conveying1290 acres in Goochland (part of "what's known as the Lickinghold survey"--500 acres of said land had been given by the will of Charles Fleming tohis grandsons Charles Jordan and George Bates. And also a deed inGoochland, dated April 1736, from John Fleming to his "cousins" (nephews)Charles Jordan, George Bates, Samuel Jordan and Matthew Jordan, conveying500 acres in Goochland, which he had bought from Tarlton Woodson.
      5. Unnamed daughter Fleming married Unknown Jordan, and was mother ofColonel Samuel ordan of "Seven Islands", Buckingham County, member of theHouse of Burgesses for that county ("Cabells and Their Kin" and deedcited above. (It is believed this is the "Elizabeth Fleming" shown belowas "8."
      6. Unnamed daughter Fleming (probably) married Unknown Hughes. There ison record in Goochland, a deed dated May 20, 1729, from John Fleming ofGoochland, to Stephen Hughes of the same county; conveying 732 acres inGoochland, the upper end of a tract of land called Fleming's Park, beingthe land directed in the will of Charles Fleming, to be conveyed by hisheirs or executors to the said Hughes. Possibly, however, this was onlya sale in which Charles Fleming had not had time to make a deed.
      7. Unnamed daughter Fleming (probably) married Bowler Cocke of HenricoCounty. In 1725, Tarleton Fleming and Bowler Cocke, "devisees of CharlesFleming' received a regrant of 1430 acres, formerly patented by CharlesFleming.
      8. Elizabeth Fleming "daughter of Charles and Susanna Fleming, bornOctober 23 (or 28) 168-- (St Peter's Register). She may have been one ofthose, noted above, whose Christian names are unknown (Genealogies ofVirginia Families - From The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography)"
