Bio

John Bourne was born September 1707, ‎(Bourne Genealogy" by Helen Bourne Joy Lee –family bible)‎, he was raised on his father’s plantation on the south side of the Rappahannock River near Snow Creek in Fredricksburg, Essex County, Virginia. He wa s the son of John and Elizabeth Johnson Bourne. His father died early, leaving his mother with 7 young children. John was the oldest at 14 years of age. The family’s survival was probably aided by their Taliaferro relatives. In 1728 the area wher e he lived became part of Caroline County and earlier in 1720 Spotsylvania County had been formed with its boundary along Snow Creek and just west of where the Bourne family lived.

His father’s will stipulated that John would gain his inheritance at 21 years of age or upon his marriage. John was married at 19 years of age, thus gaining his inheritance early, to Sarah Ramsay ‎(North Farnham Parish (recs 1672-1800)‎ Richmond Co . Va 16 March 1726/27 Miss Ramsey). Sarah gave John 3 children, Sarah about 1726, Francis 12 September 1727, and William about 1730. William died young but we do not know the date.

In 1734, when John was about 27, Sarah passed away leaving him with three young children ages 8, 7 and 4. After the death of Sarah in 1734, John sold the plantation and moved to St. Marks Parish ‎(soon to be Culpepper County)‎, Virginia on the Rapida n River, with brothers Andrew and Henry. There in 1736, John married Eleanor Davis, daughter of Thomas & Susannah ‎(Wyatt)‎ Davis of Virginia, who in the following years would give him 11 more children.

John and Andrew obtained land from the Spotswood estate ‎(see Orange Co Deed Bk 5 p 210-218)‎ In a first deed dated 31 Mar 1742 John, and his son Francis, ‎(see note following this paragraph*)‎ obtained 150 acres. in the second deed on the same day his brothers Andrew and Henry, also obtained 150 acres. This land became the base of the Bourne family in VA until the later move to Kentucky.

‎(* Having not seen the deed book I think it unlikely that John’s 15 year old under–age son Francis purchased land with his father. Perhaps it is more likely that Francis, the co-purchaser of this land, was John’s brother. -Jane)‎

Helen Bourne Joy Lee states in her book “Bourne Genealogy” that John Bourne died suddenly in Culpepper County, Virginia during March of 1774, possibly from a fall from his horse.

Note
Ed Baliff research in Virginia: "Ann Miller, of Orange County Historical Library, said that the Bournes bought or leased lands from the Spotswood Estate along the Rapidian River just west of the old Orange Co. Court House located on the south side of the Rapidian. The location is in the area of the intersection of County Road 522 and 636. County Road 636 was designated as th River Road and said it was the road the Bournes traveled 200 years ago."

RESEARCH - Location Notes

The County of Rappahannock originally formed from Lancaster County in 1656 was later dissected into other counties which were dissected even further into Essex and Richmond in 1692 Spotsylvania, Orange and Culpeper were all later divisions each bei ng even further divided. A person could never have moved from the same home and have lived in several different counties during their lifetime. The then Rappahannock County is today referred to as “Old” Rappahannock County to differentiate it f rom the extant same named county. – 14 December 2007 Jane
