 Sally's great-great great-great-great Grandparents:

Humphrey Deggs Hudgins 1735 - 1796his parents 
& Joanna ?
  |  her parents
of Gloucestor County, VA


    This is my working hypothesis - the way I see it as of this moment!! 


      Humphrey Deggs Hudgins was born 1735 in England and came in 1742 to Virginia with his father Robert Humphrey Hudgins 1710-1791. He married a young woman named Joanna who was born in England and their two sons are in the Kingston Parish records in Glocester Co, VA. 
 
Ref: Hudgins, Virginia to Texas, by Edgar H. Hudgins. 

      "Humphrey probably lived in the Peary Area (Potato Neck) between Winter Harbor & Horn Harbor. His son John's land was listed as Winter Harbor & Horn Harbor. Humphrey owned 300 acres 1782 - 1787. 180 acres 1788. 205 acres 1789 - 1791. 155 acres 1792-1798. First listed as estate in 1797. Land transferred to John in 1799."  Allen Hudgins in Jackie Hudgins notes

e-mails from Chelsi Green, MO
Hi Sally it is Chelsi again. I have been doing a ton of research and have actually traced my ancestry (yours also) back as far as I could get online to a gentleman born in 1595 in Llandoff Wales. His original last name was Rhwwttchen but the English couldn’t pronounce it when he moved to England so they gave him the name Hudgens which transformed into Hudgins. His son was Thoma Hudgins born in 1620 in Lancashire England (spouse was Elizabeth Morgan). Then Thomas’ son was Robert Hudgins born in 1660 in Lancashire England (spouse was Charlotte Lewis. Then we get to Roberts son who you have listed as the last person on your page. Mr. Robert Humphrey Hudgins, born in 1710. I thought you could add all this to your site if you would like. If you need it I can try and remember where I found all this online! So that you can go and look also!!

I am the Great Grand Daughter of the just very recent Deceased Harold Rockhold Hudgins. He is the great grandson of John Foster Hudgins.

(A)-Origin of the name of Hudgins. In a collection of manorial documents possessed by the estate of 
a certain Robert Blondell of Nottage Court in Llandaff, Wales, their is one dated 1505 which shows the 
original Welsh spelling of our family name, as follows: RHWWTTCHEN (which means, 'Lord of the Far 
Seas'.) 

At some time, not now precisely known by anyone, a man by the name of Rhwwttchen moved from Wales to Liverpool in Lancastershire County, England. The English authorities found it difficult to pronounce the name as it was spelled but simple to spell it phonetically as it sounded 
to them. There were many common English names of similar sound such as Hutchins, Huggins and Higgins. This new name, as pronounced had some new sound; it started with a gutteral Celtic rolling "Rh" followed by a sound like "udd"-in the middle and ending with a soft sound like "jinz". It was 
simplified by phonetics into Hudgins, pronounced Hud-Jinz. and thus it has been ever since. 
Occasionally one sees the name spelled in other forms, such as Hudgen and Hudgin, but the plural 
form of Hudgins dominates.

Thomas Hudgins had a son, Robert Hudgins, born in Lancaster in the year 1660. Robert Hudgins prospered greatly, maintained a large shipyard and ship-building enterprise and had homes both in Lancastershire and in the family hometown of Llandaff, Wales. In 1686 he was appointed Sheriff of Llanthony, a position which he held to the day of his death. Robert Hudgins married Charlotte Lewis, daughter of Henry Lewis of Trelech, Wales, in 1701. They lived thereafter in Liverpool but maintained his family home in Llandaff. (Note how often in succeeding generations the names Charlotte and Lewis recur. As you will see later, Robert and Charlotte educated and raised their grandson, Houlder I and he had great affection for them). 

Robert and Charlotte Hudgins had four children, all sons: 

William Hudgins 1702-1771 
John Hudgins 1705-1784 
Lewis Hudgins 1706-17* 
Robert Hudgins 1710-1791 

This data continues from the previous issue of this feature and since the Hudgins family connects with many other Tidewater families, this space is allowed. The name connects with Gloucester, York, Elizabeth City Co. (now the City of Hampton) and Norfolk Counties, Virginia. This issue begins with the Mathews Co., Va. Brothers, so we continue: “In the year 1743 William Hudgins, his three brothers and their families left their homes in Liverpool, England to settle permanently in the Dominion of Virginia. They had frequently visited the Tidewater area in prior years in their capacities as captains of the ships owned and operated by their father, Robert Hudgins. The locality appealed to them as a good base for shipbuilding and as a staging point for their trading business. The farming and fishing opportunities were also great, their prospects were bright and their hopes were high.” William (Hudgins) selected Milford Haven in the County of Gloucester as the most likely place to live and purchased there a small manor known as ‘Hesse Castle’ from a retiring army officer named John Armistead. He had purchased from the Crown considerable lands in the nearby Counties of Middlesex, York, Elizabeth City and Hanover which he and his brothers worked as plantations. The group prospered, exchanged and purchased more land, ever closer to the base in Milford Haven. Within a period of a few… <illegible> …almost the entire shore of the Planketank River from Gwyns Island to Hampton. Most of this land was in what was then Gloucester Co.” “By the act of the Virginia Assembly of December 16, 1790, the County of Gloucester was divided and that portion in which the Hudgins family lived became Mathews County 
effective January 1, 1791. Mathews County was named in honor of General George Mathews, and Indian fighter and officer in the Revolutionary War. He was famous for his winning command at the Battle of Point Pleasant which was said to have been one of the bloodiest Indian wars in history. In the Revolution he distinguished himself at the Battle of Brandywine and at Germantown. 
Following the Revolution General Mathews moved to Georgia where he became the Governor of the new 
state, and office which he held from1793 to 1796.

John Hudgins 1762 - 1803   |  his parents
& 1780 Amelia Foster 1760 - 1794

      John Hudgins was a builder of ocean-going sailing vessels and his yard was at Potato Neck, VA.
 He was known as "
Noble John" and also " Potato Neck John" to distinguish him from the other nine John Hudgins. John‘s birth is recorded in Kingston Parish, Gloucester County, VA records as 8 Oct. 1762 son of Humphrey Deggs Hudgins 1735-1796  and wife Joanna.  
Amelia Foster was born 9 Oct, 1760 daughter of John Foster Jr 1728-1784 & Rosanna who had married in 1749.   John Hudgins and Amelia Foster were married in 1780. 
Their children births are recorded in the Kingston Parish records. 

Amelia Foster Hudgins
died at age 34 in 1794.
