    • Biography

      Residence: Lower Norfolk Co., VA.

      Samuel Maund Cherry [C1a7], son of John Cherry Jr and Rebecca Maund, was born about 1682 in Lower Norfolk Co VA. He married Frances Ballentine, daughter of George M Ballentine Jr and Frances Yates, about 1710. Samuel lived along the south branch of the Elizabeth River. He was on the tithable list in Norfolk Co on 10 June 1730, as was his brother Lemuel. Hence they were between the ages of 16 and 60. The 10 June 1734 tithable listing is the last one for Samuel, until June 1751 when his son Samuel was listed (the lists from 1737 through 1750 are missing). Since Samuel Jr wasn't named on any Norfolk Co tithable list until after 1736, he couldn't have been born before 1721, thus placing an approximate marriage date of about the 1710s. Samuel Maund left his will, dated 19 January 1733, and proven on 16 May 1734, in Norfolk Co (it is now at Portsmouth, VA). It was witnessed by George Ballentine and Solomon Cherry. Samuel left 200 acres to his wife, land along Indian Creek. He only named the eldest and youngest two children in his will. Youngest son Dunson received 80 acres on the north side of Deep Creek, and son Samuel Jr received 200 acres lying at the head of Indian Creek. Samuel did not name his wife in the will, but her father did in his 14 November 1733 will. Samuel signed his will with a mark "M" which would be a very poor letter M, or just a scribble of an illiterate person. Samuel's sons listed in his will (Sam Jr and Dunson), and others claimed to be children by Thigpen, were-

      a. Elizabeth Cherry, b abt 1710s
      b. Patience Cherry, b abt 1710s
      c. Frances Cherry, b 1710s?
      d. Samuel Cherry, b abt 1721
      e. Dunson Cherry, b 1721-1735

      Frances Yates was a daughter of Richard Yates and his wife Joan. George Ballentine, called "Senr" in his 14 November 1733 will which was proven four days later in Norfolk Co, named his son George as the executor, his daughter "Frances Cherry" (received "one looking glass"), "son Sam'l Cherry" 200 acres of land, and named other children (George Ballentine, Mary Deale, Susan Bishop, and Dorothy Tucker) and grandchildren. It was not uncommon then to name a well beloved son-in-law as a son. George Ballentine Sr of Lower Norfolk Co left a will in 1703 naming his son George. (57,69, 114, WD,28p) [1]

      Research Notes

      So much confusion among the Samuel/Lemuel/Samuel Maund/Samuel M Cherrys. George Ballentine, Sr., (1636-1702) had a daughter named Frances who married Henry Deale (named in his 1700 will, proved 1702). George Ballantine, Jr., (1663-1733) had a daughter named Frances who married a Cherry (named in his 1733 will).

      The case is made above that Dunson could have been born 1721-1735, but Samuel died in 1733. Was it even legal to leave land to a minor?
