Notes about Nicholaus Gillentine

[Lila Garner]

Nicholas GILLENTINE was born about 1676 in England, and had immigrated to Virginia by about 1710, when he married Eleanor Echols. Francis Gill[1] writes,
“I am very confident of the information back from us [he brings some lines of descendancy lines down to the present about 2000, but our line enters the family with Richard and Sarah (Hillsman) Borum] to Nicholas Gillentine, because I have done the research myself.
“Nicholas Gillentine…seems to be the immigrant for the family. There are no others of the surname, or likeness of that surname, in Virginia earlier. His birth year does fit the second marriage of John Girlington [the man thought to be his father]…. As with other cases in genealogy, a ‘leap of faith’ is required.”
Two things make it certain that Nicholas Gillentine was the immigrant: Francis found no others of that surname or likeness of that surname, in Virginia, earlier than or contemporaneous with Nicholas; and Echols[2] signed a family genealogy[3] on 14 June 1850, in which he writes in his own quaint style,
“Old English John Echols--had 3 Daughters which I would have inserted had Known enough about them to give any satisfactory account of them---I only Know they married Outlandish men-one an Englishman named Nicholas Gilington---of their family I know nothing….”
By “outlandish”, Milner certainly means that they were immigrants, although the term in today’s usage does not suggest that definition. Wading through Milner’s history is difficult and he gives no dates, but his outline of the family has been found to be surprisingly accurate by those who have followed his clues and used census records and state and county documents to prove his statements.
Nicholas and his wife were the parents of one son and four daughters. If there were other children, they have not been identified.
I have seen conjecture that after his wife Eleanor died, he married an Elizabeth Ricketts. I do not know whether this is correct.
A transcription of his will follows:
“In the Name of God, Amen. I, Nicholas Gillington of Halifax Co., being weak in body but in sound and perfect sense and memory, thanks be to God for same, Calling to mind that men must die and after that must come to judgement, do consider that what of our affairs are not settled in this life cannot be settled hereafter, do make and ordain this, my last will and testament, acknowledging this to be my last will and testament, disannulling all other will wills whatsoever, and to proceed, I shall give my estate as followeth, to-wit: I give to my daughter Catherine Brown one feather bed, to her and her heirs; to Elizabeth Collins I give one feather bed, to her and her heirs; to Elizabeth Chisum, daughter of John Chisum, I give one feather bed, to her and her heirs; to my son John Gillington I have given 400 acres of land which I intended should be his full portion, nevertheless, to take matters out of dispute, I give to his heirs five pounds cash. To John Chisum I give the land and plantation which I now possess in Amelia Co., containing 300 acres, to be at his own disposal for which reason he is to pay to Catherine Brown or to her heirs, -20. current money; to Elizabeth Collins or her heirs, -20.; to Ann Hillsman or her heirs, -20.; to Eleanor Chisum or her heirs, -20.; to Priscilla Hendrick, my granddaughter, or her heirs, -20.; and as for my negro woman Rose, she shall choose her mistress among my daughters, and they that she shall choose shall pay -20. to be equally divided among all my children now living and my two granddaughters, which is Elizabeth Chisum, wife of John Estes, and Jerushea, daughter of John Gillington, deceased. I therefore make and ordain John Chisum my whole and sole executor of this, my last will and testament, made in the year 1772, and on the 21st day of October.
“In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand.
“Nicholas Gillington
“Witnesses:
John Dyer
John Templeton
Elizabeth Lack”
He died in 1774 in Halifax County, Virginia, and is buried there.
There is a hand-drawn picture on the outside of Nicholas’ will, believed to have been drawn by Nicholas himself, that purports to look like Thurland Castle in Yorkshire. Francis describes the drawing as bearing a remarkable resemblance to the left wing of the castle as it looks today.
There is no question that the name was earlier “Girlington”, and a Girlington family inhabited that castle, having been driven out during one of the revolutions there.
A ‘genealogy’ for Nicholas follows, which Francis Gill believes is accurate but requires a ‘leap of faith’, because it cannot be, or at least has not yet been proven; note that the name ‘Nicholas’ was in the family early:

[1] See the Research Overview within the biography of Person Number 23.
[2] Milner is descended from an Elizabeth Milner who married first John Palmer and second James Echols. She is not the Elizabeth Milner, born about 1680, daughter of John Milner and Katherine, who is a sibling of Person Number 1239 in this compilation; the time is wrong by about 100 years. There was a Milner in Virginia by 1624 when he is found on a census, while John, the immigrant Milner in our line, arrived in North America in 1659.
