    1. [VAISEY] Re: The Vasey family
    2. Peter Walker
    3. Ben, Not sure that there's anything I can say to confirm or deny a connection between the Vasey family and a Pheysey family. My own Vasey line starts in South Shields in the late 18th century and moved down to London around 1812. I had a researcher tell me that Vasey was a corruption of 'de Vesci' and that this line came over with the Normans. Take you pick! However, I'm copying to the Vaisey list where there might be some other researchers for whom this might ring bells.

    1. [VAISEY] Yorkshire Vasey's
    2. Hi .. I have been checking out the archives and it appears there is no mention of any Vasey families in the WRY. Well here is one now ....My mother was Margaret June Vasey daughter of Joseph Vasey and Gertrude Evelyn Lee. She was born in Dewsbury WRY in 1934 one of 7 children. I have only just started looking at the Vasey line but in the 1881 census only two Vasey families lived in Dewsbury one of the families was from Ireland which I suspect is the family from which my mother was decended (all Catholics) I will keep the list informed as i go on or you may like to check out my website occasionally.

    1. [VAISEY] Martha Frances Veazey's mother Mary Ann
    2. afallon/lee
    3. The Veazey book states that Martha Frances' mother was Mary Ann Lucas who married William Cain Veazey in Sept of 1840 (there's a record of the marriage in Greene County, GA) and that her father was a jeweler who went back to England. No other information is given and I took that as fact till I began to look at the Attala County Cemetery Book. There are a lot of Lucas's buried at Liberty Chapel Cemetery, along with a lot of Veazeys. The Lucas's seem to all stem from one family--Edmond and Frances Copeland Lucas of Greene County, GA (the same place most of the Veazeys who came to Attala County originated--well before coming from SC and Maryland) This family of Lucas's arrived in Attala County sometime after 1842 and before the 1850 census. They had a large family and several of the daughters married in GA. Now while it is true that the Lucas's still had a daughter named Mary living in their household in 1850, it doesn't mean they could not have had two. One Mary Ann and the remaining daughter Mary A. H. Families moved in patterns, mostly coming to a new area because it had just opened up from Indian land or because relatives of theirs were already living in that area. Why would the Veazeys have come to that Particular place and live near particular people if they weren't related or knew them. Anyway here's a pieced together list of this family (except for Mary Ann Lucas Veazey the rest of the children should be pretty accurate). Edmond Lucas April 3, 1790 SC (no clue on his parents yet) died Oct 21, 1853 Frances Copeland November 2, 1796 GA (d/o John) died aft 1860 children: Elizabeth F. Lucas August 10, 1819 (married (The Attala County Cemetery book says his name was George but Greene County Georgia Marriage records say his name was Thomas Thompson--marriage date 12/24/1841--he dies before 1850 and she is living with her brother John) Mary Ann Lucas September 5, 1820 (married William Cain Veazey December 5, 1840) died abt 1895 John Lucas 1821-1887 (married Elizabeth ?) Nancy Lucas abt 1822 (this may be a cousin since she does not move to Attala County) (married Joseph Thompson July 15, 1841) Mary A. H. Lucas June 12, 1826 (married J. B. Hines aft 1850) died 1899 William Jap Lucas Nov. 5, 1829 (married Mary Ann Hovis) died Sept 11, 1898 Edmond E.A.P. Lucas April 25, 1832 (married Amanda Sweatt) died April 4, 1907 Sarah R.D. Lucas abt 1833 Martha J. abt 1834 Washington F. Lucas abt 1837 Martha Susan Lucas June 29, 1838 (married Franklin Turner) died May 21, 1910 Thomas J. Lucas abt 1839 Does anybody have any info on this family? thanks Lee Caldwell-Owens

    1. [VAISEY] Martha Frances Veazey abt 1844
    2. afallon/lee
    3. Here's some things I know about Martha (Fannie Mae to her daughter and step-children) She married James Franklin (Frank) Tidwell sometime after 1880 and before 1882. He had at least 6 children and together he and Fannie had one daughter Eula Lee Tidwell (not Etta) born about 1882. Eula married William Reason Evans (they are buried at Hebron Cemetery in Montgomery County). Fannie was completely blind by the time her grand-daughter Joy was born in 1915 and was living with her daughter in Montgomery County, MS--this house was Fannie's property as was the land in the Pine Bluff Community (at some point there were two houses with Fannie living separately) --Sometime after she married Frank Tidwell the family moved to Montgomery County. She allowed her son-in-law to sell the house and property so the whole family (9 all totaled) to move to TN where some of her step-children had moved---that didn't pan out so to speak--a series of misfortunes befell the family ---from rabies causing a number of livestock to have to be destroyed to a tornado---Fannie and her daughter's family moved back to Montgomery County within 3 years of moving to TN. It is unclear on whose property they lived at that time or where the money came from. Eula sold butter at one point and William was a moonshiner(he spent every little of what he earned on the family and seems to have rarely been at home except for meals) Sometime near Fannie's death, her eldest grand-daughter walked all over Jackson trying to get Fannie a pension from her husband's service in the Confederacy. She got the pension but died after only receiving it for possibly 2 years. There were 6 grandchildren and her son-in-law only out lived her by 7 years ---he was shot in 1930. Fannie died November of 1923 and was taken back to Attala County to be buried in Liberty Chapel Cemetery (if her parents are buried there their tombstones were unreadable by the time the Attala County, Cemetery Book came out) but a number of Veazeys and Lucas's (her mother's relatives most likely) are buried there also. Her tombstone is concrete and hand hewn by a relative of her son-in-law's Pete Herring. The family was so poor Fannie was taken back to Attala County on the back of a flat-bed truck. My grandmother says someone arrived late (she can't remember if it was a step-child or not) for the funeral --after the coffin had been lower in the ground---whomever this was had them lift the coffin out of the ground and open it so he could get one last look at Fannie. Here's what I don't know exactly--when was she born? The Veazey Book says 1844 and so does the tombstone but on 1880 census her age is given as 30. That would make her 6 years younger than the tombstone says. If she was really 36 and didn't marry for another 2 years, she would have be 38 at least when she had her first child---that's not impossible but not the usual way of things(not for a first child anyway) It would stand to reason that the census age is right and the tombstone age is wrong. But I don't know? The other thing I don't know is about her mother, but I will make that a new post. lee caldwell

    2. Corinne Thompson
    3. Hello All, This was sent to me and as I feel that it is most appropriate I am passing it on: "Is your Mothers maiden name on her headstone? Does anyone but you know who that dear person was ? Let's all go into our cemeteries and identify as many of the women as we can while we can and record them in as many places as we can. Let's give a name to our Mother's, Sisters, Aunts and Grandmothers while we can. Let's also, from this time forward, put a maiden name on the headstone of all our women. They loved their people. They will love you for seeing that their identity is not lost. I hope that you all think about it and help to spread the word to give our women their names." Kindest Regards ...... Corinne.

    3. Does anyone have info on this line--his parents were William Cain Veasey and Mary Ann Lucas. All the John Veasey book says is that it is the Coldwater group--which I suspect means he went to live in the Coldwater community of MS since his parents and a number of William's sibling all moved to Attala County, MS before the 1880 census. (Attala County is middle of the state--Coldwater which I beleive is in Tate County is near the TN line) lee caldwell-owens

    1. [VAISEY] Will of Daniel Veysie
    2. Linda Barraclough
    3. Hi List, Looking through some old papers, I find I have this will. I cannto remember where it came from, and I cannot prove any relationship, despite the family being from Wotton-under-Edge (Glouestershire), near my Kingswood Vaiseys. Thought it might mean something, so I am posting it to the list. The will reads: 1647 Effingham P.C.C. (Three pages in regsiter) Daniel Veysie, clerk, R. of Plymtree, Devon, whereas when a marriage was in contemplation between me and my present wife, Anne, the 4th dr. of the late William Arnold Esq, of Queen's Square, London, the said W.A. did transfer to William Moreton and James Byrn ...... [pound symbol]1500, 3% reduced Bank Annuities in trust, and whereas a marriage settlement made previous to the said marriage, and bearing date 27th April, 1798 - whereas the said W.A. by his last will and testament did appropriate a share of his personal estate to the use of his dr. Anne my present wife - the whole in the hands of the trustees ammounting to [pound symbol]10,000, 3% reduced bank annuities - now direct them to pay the interest to my wife Anne for her life, and then to transfer the [pound symbol]10,000 among all our surviving children equally ... my eldest son Daniel Veysie and to William James Arnold, Esq, of Exeter College, Oxford, [pound symbol]1200 ...% consolidated Bank Annuitites, on trust to pay the interest to my sister Anna Veysie of Wotton underedge, Gloucestershire, for her life, and then divide the capital among my three daughters Anne, Mary and Penelope-Gertrude. My son William Veysie. My leasehold cottage in the parish of Plymtree. I do give to my wife all my plate that greater part of which came from her father. Residue to my wife. She sole exix. 10th Jan 1814. Proved in London, 1 Dec, 1817 by Ann Veysie relict and exix. I think what follows is a note that was not part of the will: William James Arnold matric at Oxford 29 June, 1813, aged 20, as son of Wm Arnold Esp, of Grenada, Wiltshire.
