Hi Judy!

I have three Francis Lakey's with a son William. Francis Lakey & Elizabeth Randal had one baptised in 1814 - he wed Mary Luscombe and had at least three children: Harriet, Robert and Ann. Francis Lakey & Mary Partridge had a son William baptised in 1781. Francis Lakey & Mary Roberts Mudge had a son William Henry born in 1863. Is one of these "yours"?
[All events took place in Devon, England]

Stephen , Thank you for your fast reply ! The William born to Frances and Elizabeth and baptised in 1814 would have been about right because my great grandmother was born circa 1833[which would have made him about 19 years old when she was born. Also her name was Georgia ANN. Also ,I always heard my grand mother refer to William and his family as Irish Immigrants ,but I suppose they could very well have come here by way of England . The one thing that DOESNT fit at all is that My Williams wife and the mother of GEORGIA ANN was named SARAH,, I know they ended up in North Carolina before later coming to Texas . It seems I remember hearing somewhere that they were Mormons . But not positive on that .Do you have anything anywhere that says this particular William had more than one wife ?With so little to go on , I suppose its possible that Im ONE GENERATION OFFalso ,but all the dates for this William fit so well. I truly wish I could be more helpful . Do you happen to know when your ANN was born, or WHO SHE MARRIED . Let me hear from you and THANK YOU SO MUCH for your help ,Judy.

Surnames: Lakey; Boyd; Jefferson
My grandfather was William Francis Lakey, born July 9, 1846 in North Carolina to Benjamin W. Lakey and Malinda Cook. They moved from North Carolina when my grandfather was about 2 years old, to close to Talladaga, Alabama. When he was 13 or 14 years old, he enlisted in the Confederate infantry, the 46th Alabama unit and that unit surrendered at Vicksburg. He was sent to a prison camp on one of the great lakes. He and another guy used whiskey jugs to float out over the lake to escape and they walked back to Alabama where he was discharged. The next I have on him is when he married Martha M. (Mattie) Jefferson in Trigg County, Kentucky. They, and the inlaws (Jeffersons) moved to McLennan County Texas near Waco where they were on the US federal census. They had 3 girls, and the next I know he moved, with the girls, to Comanche County Texas. He married my grandmother there and they had ten more children, the youngest was my dad, Boyd Herbert Lakey. William Francis is buried beside my grandmother, Emily Jemima Boyd Rogers in the Sipe Springs cemetery. His first wife is buried in another cemetery, also in Comanche County Texas. If this William is connected to the Francis Lakey of Devon, England, I would appreciate any information. I don't know much about his dad, Benjamin W., only that he was also born in North Carolina, probably about 1822.

Last Saturday (Oct. 14) we were within almost one and a half miles of Shallow Ford when we heard a foray. Thinking our light infantry was engaged, we advanced up with all possible speed,
and discoverd that the Virginians and some Surry troops had attacked three hundred Tories under Col. Wright. Our only loss was Capt. Francis killed and four wounded. Fifteen of the enemy was found dead on the ground, among which were Captains Bryan and Burke. Capt. Lakey is mortally wounded and is now in our hands with three more wounded prisioners, which is all we took.

Among the early settlers in Surry (now Yadkin) County were the Lakeys. No one can tell us the exact date of their arrival in the county, but the 1775 Surry County tax list contains the names of William and Henry Lakey. Land records show that Thomas, William and Elizabeth Lakey (Wife of William Leakey 1) owned land along Forbish Creek as early as 1778.
On the 4th of 5th month 1782, Mayner, Francis, James and Susana Lakey, probably brothers and sisters, obtained a certificate of removal from Cane Creek Quaker Monthly Meeting, Orange County, North Carolina, to Deep River Monthly Meeting, Guilford County, North Carolina. Soon their names appeared in the minutes of Deep Creek Monthly Meeting, Surry County, North Carolina.

Information: Gilbert M. Lakey

C White, further: Note the following court minutes, taken from the data in this file:
13 Feb 1828 Eli Vanderpool appointed guardian to Margaret Lakey, sec Josiah Vanderpool $100
12 May 1828 Ct ordered Reuben Laky be permitted to remain with his mother
Thomas Lakey, age 12 the 4 Aug next bound to Solomon Lakey until 21, to be given 1 yr schooling, Horse-saddle-bridle ~ $50 and 2 suits of clothes.
Ordered Cynthia Lakey aka Speer permitted to remain with Miss Elizabeth Lynch
The above actions regarding the children took place relatively recently after the known death of Mayner Lakey; these are not the known children of Francis Lakey who d 1822, having lived in the neighborhood. I believe that there is some chance that these 4 children are also those of Mayner and Elizabeth Speer Lakey. Incidentally, Thomas and Reuben are Speer names; Thomas Speer had a daughter Elizabeth, as well as sons Thomas and Reuben.


Notes for Elizabeth Speer:
An Elizabeth Lakey is on 1835 Surry County Tax List with 17Acres worth $17. She is not on the 1830 Surry Census, nor is Mayner on the 1820 ( C White)
Elizabeth Lakey is in the county through 11 Feb 1836 (presumably) when she was called as a witness in the case of NC vs Joseph Murphy and Susanna Melton, and failed to appear

Francis Lakey is found in the 1790, 1800, 1810, and 1820 census of Surry County. He purchased land along Forbush Creek and became involved in community life, witnessing his neighbor's deeds and serving on a committee to view and turn the road near Rockford.
Francis became a prosperous farmer, although he could not write, he often posted marriage bonds for friends and relatives and put up money for county constable's bond. The court minutes indicate he did his public duty by serving as a juror on the Superior Court and the Grand Jury.
On his farm he raised corn, wheat, rye, cotton, flax and tobaco. He kept bees for honey and wax. When Francis Lakey died in October 1821, he owned 447 acres of land along Forbush Creek. He had four horses, fourteen head of cattle, thirth-six hogs, twenty-three sheep and twenty-six geese.
His widow Hester (Maiden name unknown) applied for a year's dower for herself and eight children. At the February court 1822 the following provisions were laid aside for the widow Lakey and her family - Sixty barrels of corn, five hundred pounds bacon, thirty pounds of hog lard and five barrels of corn to purchase sugar and coffee. The widow had her choice of six shoats and five barrels of corn to fatten them, one beef, two cows and calf, five head of sheep and four hogs, She retained the flax and cotton, two hides of leather, spun cotton and thread and one barrel of salt which they had on hand and ten bushels of corn to buy salt. Included in the dower were four choice fodder stacks, one stack straw, one stand of bees and two and one half bushels of potato seed. The other belongings, furniture, silverware, pewter, deft ware, tools, cooking utensils and so forth were sold at a publicauction held on March 14, 1822. The children purchased many of the items. The proceeds totaled $370.74, with the horses bringing the most money.
Little data is available on Hester, wife of Francis Lakey. According to census records she was born between 1770 and 1775 and died before 1850. Francis and Hester are probably buried in Lakey Cemetery overlooking Forbush Creek in Yadkin County.(Mrs. Robert [Ethel M.] Taylor

Notes for William Leakey:
There is no proof that William Leakey is the son of Alexander Leckey

William Leakey born about 1728 possibly in Prince Georges County, Maryland

1730 Monoquesy Meeting was formed in 1730 and was under the Monocacy Monthly Meeting in Maryland and the Fairfax Monthly Meeting in Virginia. At that time the Monthly Meeting alternated between the Monocacy and Fairfax Monthly Meetings. The Meetinghouse at Monocacy was accidentally burnt down in April 1759, and was never replaced; as such the records of both were at the Fairfax Meeting, even though the Monoquesy Meeting still met in Maryland. Elizabeth Bray belonged to the Monoquesy Meeting also.

1745 William is first found when he joined the Friends, or Quakers in the Monoquesy meeting in Monocacy Hundred, in Prince George's County Maryland in 1745.
Lackey, William recrq 31-5-1745; dis 27-8-1750 for neglect to attend meetings and removed without cert. Understood within the compass of Monoquesy (Cane Creek M.M.N.C. reveals that region in 1751)

As for Monocacy, I have a 1919 map (Atlas) showing Monocacy in Montgomery County, on the Potomac River, very close to Frederick County (Montgomery County was part of Frederick County in those days) and this Monocacy is just across the river from Fairfax Virginia.
Another map shows Monocacy Manor (Hundred) in the middle of the County east of the Monocacy River, just above the town of Frederick. Incidentally__ Hundred was about the same as a township. (Gilbert M. Lakey June 11, 1996)

Mattapony Hundred was in what is now southern Prince George's County, along the Patuxents

Almance County North Carolina formed 1849 from Orange County N.Carolina

"The Great Wagon Road"
The "Great Wagon Road" from Philadelphia to Salisbury, N.C. crossed present day Yadkin County and part of "Granville Tract"" was here. The Moravian bought 98,985 Acres around present day Winston Salem and came down "The Wagon Road" with thousand of Quakers, Germans, Scotch Irish, English and so forth. (Robert Bray)

As a Quaker community, Rocky River dates back to the early 1750's when the first families from Virginia, Pennsylvania, Nan Tuckett, England & Ireland began arriving and building crude log cabins. The first meetings for worship were probably held in the homes, as was the case in other pioneer communities. According to Cane Creek minutes for 1753. "Friends inhabiting on waters of Rocky River request to hold meetings for worship amongst themselves ---"
Little is known about the first meeting, but a deed drawn up in 1792 is most revealing. David Vestel out of love and esteem that he has for that people (Quakers) and for the sum of three shillings granted a tract of land for the use of a meeting house and graveyard. This area had originally been part of a grant that William Leakey obtained from the Earl of Granville in 1755 and sold to Edward Bray 15 May 1758. Edward Bray sold this parcel of land to James Vestal who in turn sold it to David Vestal.
Rocky River Monthly Meeting was in Orange County North Carolina, now present day Chatham County, North Carolina north of Siler City. There is a Lacys Creek nearby that runs into Rocky River.

Cane Creek Monthly Meeting was in Orange County North Carolina now present day Almance County, North Carolina

June 12,1987 from Gilbert M. Lakey
I feel sure our Lakey's were here long before our Boyces. William (m.Elizabeth Bray) first shows up in 1846 and there seems to be no mention of his being foreign born- so feel sure he was born here. I feel sure its safe to say Our Lakeys and Boyces met in Oklahoma, according to Ann Boyce's letter.

October 5, 1988 From Gilbert M. Lakey
Im still convinced you found our Elizabeth Bray. I did some checking on the Land Warrant to William Lakey, Prince George Co.,Maryland and it states "Containing and now laid out of Eighty acres of land to be held at Calverton Monocacy Manor. Surveyed this 1st day of August Anno Domi seventeen hundred and forty four." This sounds like both William and Elizabeth were in Monocacy Hundred. It just has to be our Elizabeth.

July 1,1988 from Gilbert M. Lakey
You certainly came up with a lulu that time. Its not as bad as you thought. William and Elizabeth were married in 1750-- but that is still too young. I have an old atlas and it shows Monocacy in present day Montgomery Co.,Md.(formed from Frederick Co.) and believe it or not but this is right across the P atomic river from Waterford (or Fairfax) Virginia. (actually seven or eight miles) where they had the Quaker Fairfax Monthly Meetings where William and Elizabeth belonged. This just can't be a coincident. There just has to be something wrong with the birth date-- could be the date she was baptized ??? There should have been some sons also . Edward & Henry at least. If these were Quaker records for some reason or other they kept the female and male in separate books so the most likely the only records.
They belonged to either The Reformed Church or Lutheran Church.
Monocacy in present day Montgomery Co. Maryland (formed from Frederick Co.) just across the Potomac river from Waterford (Fairfax) Virginia where the Quakers Fairfax Monthly Meetings were held. This is where William and Elizabeth belonged

Notes for Elizabeth Bray:
Baptized September 21, 1740

Elizabeth Leakey, wife of William Leakey, Sr. transferred her membership in the Quaker meeting to Guilford County, North Carolina in 1779. So most likely her husband had died befor that time. Elizabeth (Bray) Leakey married (2nd) William Poe.

William Francis Lakey Sr. Was my Great Grandad. His father Benjamin was the first to use the current spelling. His Father was Amos Lackey, son of William Hamilton Lackey, son of John Wilian Lackey who immigrated from Ireland and settled in Iredell, North Carolina...... I also grew up hearing that escape story... Actually it was most likely his older brother Henry cause the family never had anything to do with him because he left W. F. Behind. William F and his younger brother Jim remained friends and my grandfather William Francis Lakey Jr lived with Jim in Parker Cnty for a while....
