3 Dec 1700 December 3, 1700, sailed on the NASSAU of Pool from England, original papers Bodlein Library in England. According to Shaffett Family -------------------- Son of General Amos Maupin, an officer in the army of Henry Navarre, Gabriel Maupin was born in Pyrenees Department of France. After the revocation of the Edict of Nantes, he fled to England. While in England he married Marie, daughter of John, Earl of Spencer. Then Gabriel Maupin fled to America, arriving in Yorktown, Virginia on the Nassau in March 1700. Gabriel Maupin was a very religious man. The vessel on which they were sailing, sprang a leak and they were in danger of sinking. Fellow passengers requested Gabriel Maupin to pray for Divine Assistance. Gabriel prayed and the leak was stopped. When the company landed, a large fish was found tightly wedged in the opening. Gabriel Maupin was the Commandant of the Royal Arsenal at Williamsburg, Virginia. The MAUPINs were among the original French Huguenot settlers at Manakin Town, Virginia, and they were related to the DABNEYs, BALLARDs and HARRISes of Virginia and Kentucky by intermarriage. Gabriel Maupin was born on 12 Feb 1655 in Gordo. He was baptized in 1688 in Nord Holland, Amsterdam. He died in Oct 1720 in Williamsburg, King James, Virginia. He was buried in Williamsburg, Williamsburg (city), Virginia. He signed a will. was in American Revolution Va. Will Records, Baltimore Gen. Publishing Co., 1982: pg. 881 will of Richard Taliafero, witness Gabriel Maupin (not sure is right Maupin) Some Wills from the Burned Counties of Va and other wills not listed in "Va. Wills and Administrations 1632-1800" by William Lindsay Hopkins, Richmond Va, copy 1987, pg. 67: Gabriel Maupin James City-Williamsburg 2 Sept 1719/ 30 Apr 1720. Daughter Mary Maupin. Wife Mary Maupin. 2 sons Daniel Maupin and Gabriel Maupin. Witt. Christopher Smith, Richard Brand, William Thorpe, Joseph Sutton, John Davis. The Maupin Family, pg. 11-12 by Nell W. Sherman -------------------- French General, a Huguenot -------------------- A General.."Gabriel Maupin, the French Huguenot exile --- was a French officer who incurred the displeasure of the King on account of his religion, and fled the Kingdom in 1699, with his wife and son Gabriel. They went first to England and remained there for some time; it is probable that their second son Daniel was born there in 1700. Gabriel Maupin had married a daughter of Lord John Spencer of England. (This reference to Lord Spencer appears to be erroneous. Gabriel married another French Huguenot, Marie Hersent, rather than Mary Spencer.) The Maupins emigrated to Virginia in 1700, and settled in Williamsburg. He was there indentified (sic) with Masonry-- and in that first Masonic lodge in Va., served in several important offices.He built and maintained until his death the Inn at Williamsburg, and teh Masons used the big dining room for Masonic purposes until they could arrange for their own temple. When Williamsburg colonial buildings were recently "restored" the old Inn was given its orignial appearance as far as possible, and the old fashioned flowers are expecially attractive. The will of Gabriel Maupin the 1st--- was dated September 2, 1719 with a codicil dated December 1, 1719; and was probated in General Court at the Capital, April 20, 1720, his wife Mary Spencer being executrix." A common tradition among Maupin descendants says Gabriel Maupain, a large land owner, was a Huguenot general who left France because of religious persecution (Genealogies of Virginia Families, 3:685). He married Mary Spencer, a daughter of the Earl of Spencer. They stayed with the Earl when they left France, during which time Daniel was born in 1700. They immigrated to Virginia that same year and settled in Williamsburg (Genealogies of Virginia Families, 4:305). There is reason to doubt Mary was the Earl of Spencer's daughter and reason to doubt our ancestor was a general. Shaffett's research "proves" Gabriel Maupin, son of Amos de Maupin, was born in Jargeau (near Orleans), France, in 1666, and that he married Marie Hersent, daughter of Louis Hersent and Marie Pillion. Apparently the Hersents and Maupins moved to Holland to escape religious persecution in France, because it was in the Walloon Church, Amsterdam, Holland, that Marie Hersent and Gabriel Maupin were married on August 18, 1691. He was a tailor by trade in Holland. Several of their children were born in Holland, and a complete list of them includes Magdelaine, Claude, Mary, Sara Caterine, Daniel, and Gabriel. [(Huguenot Emigration to Virginia listed Gabriel Maupain, sa femme and 3 enfans (page 29), as passengers). The journey lasted about three months, which was normal for that time, and arrived in Virginia on March 5, 1701 (Complete Book of Emigrants, 1700-1750, page 14).]

3 Aug 1701 Margaret VIA born at White Hall, Albemarle, Virginia; baptized at St Peter’s Parish, New Kent, Virginia [Margaret became the mother of Thomas Maupin Hanover Co., VA. At 18years of age Margaret became the mother of Gabriel Maupin in Williamsburg, VA, 1720. At 21 years of age Margaret became the mother of Mary Maupin Louisa Co., VA, 1723. At 23 years of age Margaret became the mother of John Maupin Hanover Co., VA, 1725. At 25 years of age Margaret became the mother of Daniel "Cuff" Maupin Hanover Co., VA, 1727. At 30 years of age Margaret became the mother of William G. Maupin Hanover Co., VA, 1732. At 32 years of age Margaret became the mother of Zachariah Maupin Hanover Co., VA, 1734. At 34 years of age Margaret became the mother of Margaret "Peggy" Maupin Hanover Co., VA, 1736. At 36 years of age Margaret became the mother of Jean Maupin Hanover Co., VA, 1738. At 38 years of age Margaret became the mother of Jesse Maupin Louisa Co., VA, 1740.]

1720 father Gabriel MAUPIN died; Daniel inherited the Tavern at Williamsburg, VA [
Market Square Tavern was owned by Daniel Maupin and Margaret Via Maupin in the 1700's. This photo was taken in the 1940's. The tavern is located in Historic Williamsburg and is still functional and used as a concession stand and Bed and Breakfast. Gabriel Maupin's will, dated September 2, 1719, with a codicil dated December 1, 1719, was proven in General Court on April 20, 1720, Williamsburg, Virginia. Mary, his wife, was the executrix (Genealogies of Virginia Families, 4:305).

Children: Daniel; Thomas; David; Matthew; Gabriel; John; Bland; Judith; Susan; Peggy; Ann; Fanny; Joel. Served in Rev War [Gabriel Maupin of Free Union, married Ann Ballard, daughter of Thomas Ballard a son of Thomas Ballard, who (the latter) settled on 320 acres of land near the foot of Piney Mountain, as early as 1738] [Reverend Edgar Woods says: "Gabriel died in 1794. He seems to have lived in the vicinity of Free Union, and Thomas, Bland, Daniel and Gabriel were the names of his sons," and further says: "The truth is, the families of this stock were generally so numerous, containing hardly ever less than ten, and sometimes thirteen children, and the same names were so often repeated in the different households, that it would be well nigh impossible at this date to make out an accurate statement of their lines of descent. They frequently inter-married among themselves, and with the Harrises, Jarmans, and Via's and their descendants are widely scattered over the West, particularly in Kentucky and Missouri. They seem to have been in their generations an industrious, quiet and home people." [Daniel and Margaret are believed to have remained in Williamsburg only a relatively short time after their marriage. Their oldest child, Gabriel, was born there in 1720 at the home of Daniel's father] [June 11, 1784 Petition of Gabriel Maupin shows that early in the late contest with Great Britain in the year 1776 he received an appointment as Keeper of Magazines in and near the City of Williamsburg, in which capacity he acted until the close of the War. For this service he received the rank and privileges of captain. He asks that he be granted the same bound of land that is usually granted to a captain. A note on the reverse shows that his request was rejected.]

20 Sep 1745 Charles Moorman deeds land to Daniel Maupin in Albemarle, VA (Albemarle Deeds index cited by Davis 296) at Moorman’s River (?). [this is 23 years before the Rev War so this should dispel any family rumors/stories that Daniel and brother Gabriel came to America as French soldiers who crossed with LaFayette to fight in the Rev] [appears that he amassed over 1,500 ac in the Whitehall area in the years after received this land deed]

Abt 1747 About 1747 they removed to Albemarle, and settled on Moorman's River near where the village of Whitehall now stands. The Homestead was purchased from Thomas Moorman, the original patentee, but Daniel also had a land grant from the state for 1188 acres. (Va. land grant Reg. Book 31, pg. 652) date of 9/20/1745. At the time of his death he owned 1500 acres [When Daniel Maupin moved from Hanover to Albemarle, he found the latter county on the frontier of white settlement. The county had just been organized and contained about 4000 inhabitants, black and white. These settlers were not all within the present confines of Albemarle, for at that date, Albemarle included Buckingham, Ammherst, Nelson, Fluvanna and parts of Appotomax and Campbell. The settlers on Moorman's River had to make a long, disagreeable journey to the James in order to reach their supplies. From yet another source, we may gather a few ideas of life in the days of Daniel Maupin, Sr. Charles Brown of Albemarle tells of those times in a letter written in 1848. His grandfather was Benjamin Brown of Brown's Cove, and a neighbor of Daniel Maupin, Sr., settling in the county at about the same time. The wife of Benjamin Brown was a niece of Margaret Via, the wife of Daniel Maupin, Sr. No doubt the families were intimate and lived much the same kind of life. At the time of the settlement of the families in Albemarle, Mr. Brown says that the top of the Blue Ridge was the boundary between the whites and the Indians. The latter were friendly and came often to visit with the settlers. Game was abundant at the time of the first settlement and buffalo were to be seen west of this ridge, at long intervals. The distance to a market was the greatest obstacle to prosperity in Northwestern Albemarle; but with the building of roads and the founding of Charlottesville, a great change for the better took place. According to Mr. Brown, Charlottesville was founded as follows: When the legislature agreed to divide Albemarle, which consisted of several of the counties of today, the Courthouse was at Scottsville. As this was to far from the center of the new county, the legislature made Dr. Thomas Walker, the agent, select the site of the new courthouse. Dr. Walker rode direct from Williamsburg to the home of Col. Nicholas Lewis, bought the land of the courthouse, sold the lots and with the money received, built a courthouse and jail and paid the county levy for two years. Speaking of the main road to the James he says, "The Three Notched road was the main center of travel by which the settlers of Northwestern Albemarle reached a market on the river. Charlottesville was laid out on this road and from that point it led to Ivy Creek thence to Woods Gap, where there was a considerable settlement. The road was called from notches made in trees along its route when it was but a trail. I can still find a few of the old trees between Charlottesville and Mechum's (1848." Along this road and to the north, near Nixville were the homes of the descendants of Daniel Maupin, Sr. Dr. Brown says further, "My recollection of the years following the Revolution are vivid. The people ate little meat, except pork, although they sometimes had beef in the fall and at rare intervals, venison or bear meat. The main vegetables were cabbage, turnips and Irish potatoes. Between 1790 and 1800 a few people began to raise beets, carrots, parsnips and tomatoes. Tea was drank at all times, but I believe that there was no coffee used prior to 1798. Brown sugar was used, probably fifty or a hundred pounds a year." The Indians were never troublesome in Albemarle, but during the Colonial wars, they were very threatening along the western boundary. A company of troops was raised to protect the frontier and for the service in Augusta where constant Indian raids were taking place. This company was organized in 1758 and three of Daniel Maupin's sons, a son-in-law and two grandsons were members of this militia. They were John Maupin, Daniel Maupin, Jr., William Maupin, Matthew Mullins (the son-in-law) and his two sons William Mullins and John Mullins. Matthew Mullins was the husband of Mary Maupin, the eldest daughter of Daniel Maupin, Sr., the granddaughter of Gabriel Maupin, the immigrant.]

1748 Daniel MAUPIN obtained a patent for land on Moorman's River in Albemarle County, Virginia. He entered more than fifteen hundred acres in the White Hall neighborhood. [The Homestead was purchased from Thomas Moorman, the original patentee, but Daniel also had a land grant from the state for 1188 acres, VA land grant Reg. Book 31, pg. 652, date of 9/20/1745. At the time of his death he owned 1500 acres]

24 Jun 1750 Thomas Chambers of Louisa Co., VA deeds to Daniel Maupin for 50 pounds, 100 acres on the north side of Rivanna adjacent to the county line and the Ivy Creek mouth (Albemarle Co., VA Deeds Book 1, page 281) [Moved to Blue Ridge section at Brown's Cove - Free Union area just above Charlottesville. "Gabriel Senior ran a tavern in Williamsburg and seemed to have done well. At his death his property went to his son Gabriel, who was the oldest and Daniel, who was with his uncle. William Via, along with his sister, Margaret Via Maupin, went to what is now Albemarle County. Daniel settled at White Hall on the old Maupin place, and William, who also had a son named William, and as far as we have been able to learn, he was the one who settled near Doylesville on what is known as the Rhodes Via place. This was around 1750."]

10 Sep 1755 Virginia. Land Patent Book 31, p. 652. Daniel Maupin, the father of Jesse, received a land patent 10 Sep 1755 for 1,188 acres in Albemarle on the South Branch of Moreman's [Moorman's] River, on Spring Creek adjoining his own two surveys & Samuel Jemison [Jamison].
