Egypt, and expected to go on to Palestine, but Mrs. Rice pre-
ferring the overland route — like the Israelites — they missed the
once a month boat by the water way. One night in the desert
with its Bedouin camps, peculiar moonlight and countless millions
of fleas, was sufficient, so they fled back to the flesh pots of

in Cumberland county. Here Thomas Carter married, July 10,
1764, Winifred Hobson, eldest daughter of Adcock and Joana
Lawson Hobson. She was born July 15, 1745, in Northumber-
land county, and died Dec. 3, 1831, in Pittsylvania.

Hobson and Lawson Excursus.

Adcock Hobson is supposed to have been a grandson of Thomas Hob-
son, who was clerk of Northumberland for the long period of fifry-two
years — 1664 to 1716. July 30, 1741, Adcock Hobson married in Richmond
County, Joana, eldest daughter of John and Mary Lawson, born March

136 GENEALOGY OF THE CARTER FAMILY

Tiny 15, 1751 — all born in Northumberland; and Lawson, Lucy, Edward
?nd Elizabeth, born in Richmond and Cumberland counties. Joana Lawson
Hobson's mother, Mary Lawson, died July 16, 1740, and her father's will
was prob. in Richmond County, Feb. 2, 1761. They had issue: Christopher
Lawson, whose will, prob. in Sept., 1772, names wife Sarah, and children
John, Betty Digges, Epaphroditus, Joana, Katy and Lucy ; Elizabeth, born
Feb. 17, 1719, wife of a Mr. Barber in 1758; Joana, wife of Adcock Hob-
son, and Catharine, wife of Isaac White, twins, born March 17, 1721 ;
Lucy, born March 3, 1732, married George Booker after 1758.

The parentage of John Lawson of Richmond County, but the names of
his children and grandchildren show positively that he was a member of
the Lawson family of Lancaster County, which is descended from Row-
land Lawson, the elder of three brothers — Rowland, Richard, and Epaphro-
ditus — w : ho came to Virginia prior to 1637, when Epaphroditus Lawson
had a grant of 1,400 acres of land for their transportation. Between 1649-
1656 they had large grants of land in Lancaster and Gloucester counties.
Richard settled in Gloucester, and died prior to 1662. He was probably
the ancestor of the Middlesex Lawsons. Epaphroditus and Rowland set-
tled in Lancaster; the former died in Lancaster in 1652, and seems to have
left but one child, a daughter, who married Robert Davis. Rowland Law-
son was a justice of the Lancaster court, 1652-1656. His will, probated
May 8, 1661, names wife Letitia (named in the head rights in 1637) and
children: Rowland, Jr., a justice of Lancaster, 1684, died in 1706, leaving
sons Rowland 3rd. (died 1717), Henry and John; Elizabeth; Henry; and
John, who died prior to 1703, leaving sons John, Jr., and Epaphroditus, and
daughter Elizabeth. Rowland Lawson II. 's will in 1706 bears a seal show-
ing a chevron between three martlets. Burke gives the arms of the Lawsons
of Brough Hall, Yorkshire, and of Cramington, Northumberland, as — Arg.
a chevron, between three martlets sable. See Mr. W. G. Stanard's inter-
esting notes of the Lawsons in Virginia Historical Magazine, Vol. IV.

After their marriage Thomas and Winifred Hobson Carter
lived in Cumberland county until 1783, when he purchased 467
acres of land in Pittsylvania known as "Green Rock." Here he
built a log house, and in 1787 a frame house, which was consid-
ered very fine at that time, part of which is yet standing. In
1 797- 1 798 and 1802 Thomas Carter, Sr., had grants for 1,193
acres of land in Pittsylvania. In the census of 1782 there were ten
white members of his family and seven servants.

His great, great granddaughter, Mrs. N. E. Clement, Chatham,
Ya., has given me great assistance in collecting data of this family.

She tells an interesting story, as follows : "YVinif red Hob-
son Carter became converted to Methodism in Cumberland
county, but found no Methodist church in Pittsylvania. She knew
Bishop Asbury and wrote him to stop at her house in his journey-
ings north and south. At his coming she notified the people of the
county, who gathered at her home to hear the bishop preach.
Bishop Asbury was a man of low statue, so in order to address
the crowd, called for something to stand on. The most conven-
ient thing at the time was one of Thomas Carter's liquor cases.
They are stoutly built, covered with leather and lined with velvet,
and are now owned by Mr. Scott Carter, Chatham, Ya. The
bishop preached from the liquor case and Thomas afterwards
teased his wife so much that before another visit from the bishop
she had a small pulpit built in her parlor." Later Thomas Carter
gave a piece of land called the "Bold Spring Tract" for the erec-
tion of the first Methodist church in Pittsylvania.

Thomas Carter's will, dated Sept. 16, 1803, probated Aug. 18,
1 81 7, divided a good estate between wife and children. The
personal estate included books, a large set of pink rose china,
two sets of large silver spoons and six sets of small ones, besides
a good lot of furniture, negroes, etc.

Lanier was a captain of Henry County militia in the Revolution, which
saw service under General Green. In early days the Brunswick Laniers
intermarried with the Surry County Washington family, over which a
heated genealogical controversy raged for a long time, until settled by a

crossed the stone wall at Gettysburg on July 3, 1863. An ac-
count of this by the color corporal in The Times-Dispatch,
says : "When the brigade reached the wall there was few men
left and General Armistead, turning to Colonel R. W. Martin,
said, 'Colonel, we can't stay here,' and Colonel Martin replied,
'Then we'll go forward' ; and over the wall the few remaining
went, but there were only seven or eight men left — General Ar-
mistead, Colonel Martin, Lieutenant Hutchings L. Carter,
Thomas Treadway, James C. Coleman and some others. When
Color Sergeant Jones fell from the wall, Lieutenant H. L. Carter
seized the colors and ran forward among the artillery, which
the enemy had abandoned. But reinforcements coming up they
returned and retook the guns, there being no one left to hold
them, and opened fire again on our lines. General Armistead
was killed while trying to turn a gun on the enemy; Colonel
Martin was wounded, his leg being shattered by a ball, and his
friend, Thomas Treadway, who ran to his assistance, was shot

and fell dead across his body. The others fell also, and Lieutenant
Carter finding- himself alone in the enemy's line surrendered and
was sent a prisoner to the rear, leaving the flag among the guns.
He had seventeen bullet holes in his clothes and yet was without
a wound. Thus he carried the flag of the 53rd Virginia to the
farthest point in the enemy's lines that day. Of its ten guards
eight were killed outright, and Jones and myself were severely
wounded."

plains below. The rooms have the corner fireplaces, with tiny cupboards
budt in the chimneys just above the mantles. It was the first weather-
