Who Do You Think I Am? Wow! Part 64

Hubert Patey is the earliest known of my Petty ancestors. Evidently he had such a reputation that his children changed their surname to Petty. For a court to declare that Hubert Patey "as a violent man who cannot conform to Man's Law" (me with a tear in my eye beating my torso surface covering my heart).

HUBERT1 PATEY was born Bef. 1650, and died Bef. 1687. He married (1) REBECCA. She was born Bef. 1662, and died Unknown. He married (2) FAITH UNKNOWN. She was born Bef. 1670, and died Aft. 1700.

Hubert Petty (Patey) arrived in America as an indentured servant of William Turner and family in June 1650, in Maryland. He claimed his freedom from the Turners in a court case in 1654, and moved to Norfolk Co., Va., where he was working as an overseer in 1660. By 1666 he and his wife Rebecca were purchasing land in Lancaster Co., Virginia from Abraham Bush on Morratico Creek. This was the land later given to Thomas and Katherine Petty.
Hubert PATEY is found in many times in the Lancaster County, Virginia, Order Books 1656 to 1681. He apparently was a very colorful type of character. He appeared in court several times for public drunkeness and assault. He broke out of prison and is described as a violent man who cannot conform to Man's Law.
