HERNDON

 

Our links to the huge English Herndon family come from the marriage of my grandparents, Ida Josephine “Josie” Herndon to Robert Marion Best, on 22 October 1907 in Judsonia, White Co., AR. She was the daughter of James Milton Herndon and Mary Catherine “Mollie” Riley. “Josie’s” youngest daughter, Nellie, married John Rudolph Helbron on 31 Oct 1937 in Little Rock, Pulaski Co., AR. Our branch of this Herndon family came initially from England to Virginia, then moved westward to Kentucky, then to Randolph County, Missouri, and eventually south to Judsonia, White County, AR.

 

 In The Herndon Family of Virginia, Volume. One, The First Three Generations, written by John Goodwin Herndon, Ph. D., originally printed in 1947 and reprinted in 1986, the first Herndon of record in the U.S. was William Herndon. His exact immigration date from England is not known, but one published source indicates that he arrived in Virginia between 1673-74 since he patented lands in New Kent County, VA in February 1674. William Herndon married Catherine Digges, daughter of Edward Digges, Governor of Virginia, in 1677. She was the granddaughter of Sir Dudley Digges, of Chilham Castle, Kent, England. Of William’s three sons, there is apparently record of only one, Edward Herndon (1678 – 1758). Edward married Mary Waller, daughter of Colonel John Waller and Mary Pomfrett. They had six sons: John (ca 1700 – 1786), Edward (ca 1702 – 1759), William (1706 – 1783), Richard (ca 1708 – 1754), David (ca 1712 – 1795), and James (ca 1716 – ca 1764). Descendants of these six brothers are legion.

 

Much of the lineage information on earlier generations presented below was taken from The Herndons of the American Revolution, Part VIII: #57 Lewis Herndon by Dudley L. Herndon, Jr., published in 1994. No attempt has been made to include all of his material here; only the descendants of Lewis Herndon (my RN=112) are included here. Researchers are encouraged to consult Part VIII and other parts of this vast collection for connections to other lines. His material has been augmented with data available via various on-line sources and many Internet contacts, including recent information on four of the earliest known generations in England.

 

One final comment – recent information has surfaced that raises the issue that William Herndon, cited above, did not marry Catherine Digges and claims that the information obtained in the two primary references cited above stem from  circumstantial evidence vs. factual evidence! In some cases, factual evidence is limited or even non-existent, leading to reliance on circumstantial evidence, which can raise some concerns as to validity. That being said, in this compilation, the information contained in these two cited references will be used here and Catherine is assumed to be the daughter of Edward Digges and Elizabeth Page! Appropriate caution is advised pending further confirmation.

Born ca 1800 in Franklin Co., KY; died ca 1872, probably in Randolph Co., MO, although no gravesite there has ever been located. RN=28. 1830 Census, Scott Co., KY, 1840 Census, Shelby Co., KY, 1850, 1860, 1870 Censuses, Randolph Co., MO. Moved from Kentucky to Randolph Co., MO ca 1845.

Occupation: Farmer.  [NOTE 1: One published source indicates that his second wife, America, and two sons moved from MO to White Co., AR in 1873. No evidence has ever been located to indicate that James moved with them and is assumed to have died in Randolph Co., MO, a year prior to their move to Arkansas.]

 

Married (1) Unknown ca 1825 in KY. She was born ca 1804 in KY; died pre-1839 in KY. RN=660. [NOTE 2: The only known indication of her name located to-date is from the 1912 death certificate of her eldest daughter, Mary Jane (RN=656), but the informant did not appear to be an immediate family member. The informant listed her mother’s name as “N. Tolward”and the father’s name as “And. Herndon”, but the informant may have been confused with RN=657. The 1830 Census of Scott Co., KY indicates that there were two daughters, both under 5 and one son, under 5. The 1840 Census of Shelby Co., KY indicates that there were two sons living, one between 5-10 and one between 10-15, but only one daughter living, between 10-15, so the younger daughter must have died young. The 1850 Census of Randolph Co., MO does not mention Elisha, indicating that he also died young.]  [NOTE 3: A search of the 1820 & 1830 Censuses of Kentucky failed to locate any surname similar to “Tolward”.] Children:
