‡ General
  • Richard Gissedge's land was in Pamunkey Neck, on the east side of Cohoke Swamp, extending downward from the tract which had been patented by Ambrose Lipscomb, and which lay below the courthouse. He gained title to 2000 acres, within the Indian Ring, in June 1699, by the action of a committee appointed to settle the claims to land in Pamunkey Neck already developed [Malcolm Hart Harris, MD, OLD NEW KENT COUNTY; SOME ACCOUNT OF THE PLANTERS ETC., IN KING WILLIAM COUNTY, ST. JOHN'S PARISH, Vol. II, privately printed, West Point,

VA, 1977, 671]. He previously had received a patent to 337 acres in St. Stephen's Parish of New Kent County, for the transportation of seven persons into the colony [SHELTON FAMILY GENEALOGICAL NOTES, Manuscript Collection #30057, LVA]. The will of Richard Gissedge, written 3 Mar 1702/3 and entered for probate on 20 May of the same year, no longer exists. Richard Gissedge divided his real property into four parts, but does not specify to whom it was to be left. He is more specific concerning Mr.Gissedge's personal property which was divided into three parts; one-third to his widow, Sarah, one-third to his daughter, Mary Lipscomb, wife of Ambrose Lipscomb; and one-third to his daughter, Christian Gissedge [who married a Poindexter, and one of their descendants was the Hon. George Poindexter, first delegate to Congress from the Territory of Mississippi, later a governor of the state and a U.S. Senator]. Bequests were made to his friends William Noyes, Daniel Miles, and Robert Sercey.
