James and Elizabeth resided in Abingdon and Ware Parishes in Gloucester,where James died in 1734, leaving a son James and many other children.Elizabeth lived to be very old, about 98, when she 'was buried Aug. 2,1748'.

There is a question as to the date James died - it was evidently prior to1734, because in that year she is called a widow. James Shackelford andElizabeth Robins, his wife, left a large number of children, includingJames, born June 10, 1690, Mary, John, Charles, Roger, Robert, Richard,Jane and Diana.

All of 'Tidewater' Virginia is full of Shackelfords, even to this day,and they must be descendants of the immigrant, Roger.

Pertaining to James' wife, Elizabeth Robbins Shackelford :

Below is 'part' of a Petition by Ann Robbins Freeman & sister, ElizabethRobbins Shackelford for land given in a Will. Their petition was aprovedand they moved in a body with their children and grand children to StGeorge's Parish Spottsylvania County, in 1736. In the petition Ann andElizabeth mentioned as widows in 1734.

After their arrival in Spottsylvania the Family Fortunes must haveimproved vastly, as the County records show many land transactions,purchases, sales, with records of slaves - et cetera.

'Ann Freeman and Elizabeth Shackelford, and the heirs of the body of thesaid Christopher Robbins, forever; and that all and every person orpersons whatsoever, who by the last Will and Testament of the said JohnRobbins, might have claimed the said first mentioned intailed lands nowvested in the said Henry Willis, by virtue of the limitations of the saidJohn Robbins' last Will and Testament shall forever hereafter, hold andenjoy all and singular the said last mentioned lands and premises, withthe appurtenances, successively, one after another, as they might haveclaimed and held the same intailed lands, if that or this act had neverbeen made. '

James and Elizabeth Robbins-Shackelford, are the ancestors of many of thepeople of the name that later settled in Culpepper, Fauquier, Orange andAlbemarle Counties, Virginia.

Below is 'part' of a Petition by Ann Robbins Freeman & sister, ElizabethRobbins Shackelford for land given in a Will. Their petition was aprovedand they moved in a body with their children and grand children to StGeorge's Parish Spottsylvania County, in 1736. In the petition Ann andElizabeth mentioned as widows in 1734.

After their arrival in Spottsylvania the Family Fortunes must haveimproved vastly, as the County records show many land transactions,purchases, sales, with records of slaves - et cetera.

'Ann Freeman and Elizabeth Shackelford, and the heirs of the body of thesaid Christopher Robbins, forever; and that all and every person orpersons whatsoever, who by the last Will and Testament of the said JohnRobbins, might have claimed the said first mentioned intailed lands nowvested in the said Henry Willis, by virtue of the limitations of the saidJohn Robbins' last Will and Testament shall forever hereafter, hold andenjoy all and singular the said last mentioned lands and premises, withthe appurtenances, successively, one after another, as they might haveclaimed and held the same intailed lands, if that or this act had neverbeen made. '

James and Elizabeth Robbins-Shackelford, are the ancestors of many of thepeople of the name that later settled in Culpepper, Fauquier, Orange andAlbemarle Counties, Virginia.

Note-ShackelfordRoger Shackelford The first reference we have ever found of Roger among the Virginia landrecords, is a grant of land to Roger himself, recorded in Land Book VI,page 665, and dated November 20th, 1678. But by this record itself, it isshown that Roger already had one plantation.

The name of Roger is last found on the Quit Rent Rolls, of King & QueenCounty, in 1704. He was a member of the Vestry of Petsworth Parish in1679. He was Church Warden in 1680 to 1683.

Roger was one of the persons transported to Virginia (USA) by EdwardPalmer, who received 400 acres of land for so doing. This Roger wassupposed to have fled England to save his head. He is likely the sameRoger baptized April 23, 1629. He would have been about 20 in 1649, thedate given by Minor Gibson as the date of entry into the colonies. Hearrived in VA on 6/4/1658.

ROGER, THE IMMIGRANT

It is generally conceded by those who have been interested in studyingthe history and genealogy of the Shackelford family in Virginia that theimmigrant was named Roger. One writer has stated that the immigrant wasJohn, but it is my belief that John was a son of Roger. The abovereferred to writer states that John was living in King and Queen Countyin 1649. I have not been able to substantiate this. King and Queen wasnot formed from New Kent until 1691.

It is known, however, from the records that Edward Palmer, from England,received a patent or grant of 400 acres in Gloucester for thetransportation of eight persons, including Roger Shackelford. The date ofthis grant was June 4, 1658. The actual arrival of those transported musthave been a year or more before this date.

Edward Palmer had a sister, Mary, on this list and there is good reasonto believe Roger Shackelford married Mary Palmer.

The following land grant (Land Book VI, p. 665) to Roger appears underdate of Nov. 20, 1678, during the Governorship of Sir Herbert Jeffries.'Roger Shackelford-313 acres of land in Gloucester County, Virginia,beginning to be measured at a corner chestnut tree standing nearMataponyold path and touching the land of Edward Parker (or Palmer?), Mr.Patridge, by the branch on the back side of the said Roger Shackelford'snow plantation. The land being due the said Roger Shackelford by twoseveral purchases and by virtue of a deed of sale from Mr. SamuelPatridge and Thomas Hawks (?) who are now both deceased and now plainlymarked with lines and corner trees according to the above mentionedbounds'. (Note: - By the wording of the above it is seen that Rogeralready had one plantation.)

In Virginia Quit Rent Rolls taken 1704, 'a true account of the lands inKing and Queen County, Virginia, as it was taken by Robert Bird, Sheriff,we find the name Roger Shackelford, 250 acres'.

Roger Shackelford appears as a member of the vestry of Petsworth Parish,Sept. 13, 1679. On October 14, 1680, Roger was appointed Church Warden,in same Parish for the 'ensueing year' for upper part of Parish.

Roger was present as a Warden at a Vestry Meeting, Oct. 24, 1682 andagain Sept. 24, 1683. At that time in Virginia's history Vestrymen andWardens and those elected 'to procession', were chosen only from the mostsubstantial citizens.

I do not know the exact location in either Gloucester or King and Queencounties where Roger and Mary Palmer, his wife, lived. Search has beenmade to find Roger's will, but without success. The date of his death andplace of burial are also lost to any records I can find, but he must havedied after 1704, as he appears on the Quit Rent Roll for that year.

It is not definitely known how many children he left to survive him, butcertainly James, Francis and John were his sons, also Zachariah and veryprobably others.
