Re: EZELLs in VA

Surnames: Ezell
I am descended from an Ezell family of Southampton County, Virginia. This is the information I have rounded up from relatives and off the internet.

Timothy Essell who may have been born about 1635, in the small village of Ezalle, France was married to Mary Weeks (or De Torres) born about 1657. She was the Administratrix of the estate in 1696. In the census of 1683 appear the names of George, Michael, Timothy,Sr. and Timothy Jr. Ezell. Apparently Timothy Ezell, Sr. was the father of the others. The county was either Surry or Sussex, Virginia.

Michael Ezell's will was probated December 18, 1719. He names a daughter Elizabeth and her husband John Atkinson, and a son William Ezell. Michael Ezell's wife was Elizabeth the daughter of Joane Bowman and Thomas Bowman, a Quaker who died in 1699. Michael had a brother George Ezell for which I have better documented information.

George Ezell died in Surry County, Virginia, in 1693. His will was proved in Surry County Court in April 1693. He names his wife Elizabeth and children: George, Elizabeth, Mary, Lucy, Sarah and Timothy. Notes in the margin say that George's wife was Elizabeth Clarke, daughter of Henry Clarke.

Timothy Ezell, son of the above, was born around 1689 and died about 1759-60. His wife's name was Mary (perhaps Bradenton) He names children: Elizabeth Gilbert, Lydia Ezell, Mary Rose Ezell, George Ezell, Thomas Ezell, Timothy Ezell, Jr. and John Ezell.

Thomas Ezell, son of the above, was born about 1715 and married Anne Rose about 1749 in Sussex County, Virginia. Their children: John Ezell (b.1742), Thomas Ezell (b.1744), Anne Ezell (b.1746), William Ezell (b.1749), Frederick Ezell (b. b.1752, Balaam Ezell (b.1756) and Abel Ezell (b.1758).

Could this be the Frederick you are looking for?
