COWNE

Cowan, Keown, Cown, Cowin, Cowine, Coune

Information from "Windows Into Our Past A Genealogy of the Cowne, Gough & Associated Families, Volume 2", compiled by Judy Parsons Smith 1998.

The Cowne surname originated on the Isle of Man prior to 1266.[i]  The name Cowne was originally a Meath surname, being used through out Ulster , Northern Ireland and in various spellings.  The name first appears with:

         Goidelic Mac Comghanin .  Mac Comghanin meaning "son of Comghanin" twin or co-birth.

The name becomes Mac Eoghain by the time that it reaches the Isle of Man.  Mac Eoghan meaning "son of Owen ".  While on the Isle of Man the name changes to Mc Cowyn andthen to Mc Cowne .  Later the "Mc" prefix is dropped and the name becomes Cowne[ii].

The principal parish of residence for the name of Cowne was in Kirk Lonan, the Isle of Man.  However it can also be found in the parishes of Maughold, Kirk Michael, Patrick , Braddan, Douglas (St.George), Onchan, Kirk German, and Andreas

         In 1575, Patrick Cowne  was the Slater at Castle Rushen.  He was paid a salary of 13 shillings and 4 pence.
        
In Devonshire , England :  Devonshire lay subsidy roll in 1332, there is recorded a John Coune  of the village of Yarcombe in East Devon , whose tax assessment was eight pence.

The name Cowne is the very old version of the present day Cowine and Cowin in the Isle of Man.  The pronunciation of the names Cowne, Cowin, and Cowine are identical, as the letter "I" is silent.

Apr 1781; m 1st 17 Mar 1743[xiii], Spotsylvania Co., VA to[xiv] Elizabeth Grayson  Hill , widow of Thomas Hill , of Spotsylvania Co., VA[xv], d. prior 1755; m. late 1756 to Elizabeth "Eliza" Smith Aylett, widow of Philip Aylett e , of Spotsylvania Co., VA, daughter of Augustine & Sarah (Carver)  Smith  of Shooter's Hill , b. 8 May 1722; d. 27 Mar 1781, age 59 yrs 10 mon 19 days; bur. 6 Apr 1781.

Found in a survey book of Campbell County Court , Campbell County , Virginia , Survey No. 36 is made for William Coune  (Cowne), for 1,165 acres on 9 Feb 1754.

William Cowne  "gentleman" a Devons Presbyterian from England came to Caroline Co., Virginia in 1733, he noted as being a merchant, slave dealer, a henchman of James Taylor .  It is this same James Taylor who purchased his headright in 1754, Caroline Co., VA.  While William Cowne was residing in Caroline County , he became aquainted with Thomas Hill  and his wife Elizabeth Grayson  Hill, who were residing in Spotsylvania County .  After the death of Thomas Hill in 1741, his widow married William Cowne of Spotsylvania County .

William Cowne , Gentleman, both bought and sold slaves while working at Aylett's warehouse in King William County, VA during the 1740's.  During this time he traded with the American indians from his boat landing and wharf on the Mattapony ( Mattaponi ) River.  He was considered a wealthy plantation owner in the local area. [xvi]

In an interesting court case we find the following account:

"With this second loss of Abraham decided to buy a Negro.  The law did not forbid a Jew to own a Negro slave.  But he made a mistake in the type of Negro he purchased.  Instead of buying a domesticated servant, he purchased a slave recently imported from Africa because the latter was cheaper.  He made this purchase from a batch of Negroes recetly brought into Virginia by James Taylor , the Younger, and kept in the cellar of a tobacco warehouse at Ayletts, their port of debarkation, under the supervision of William Cowne .  Abraham carefully looked over the lot and picked the fattest Negro, against the expressed disapproval of no lesser personage than Nathaniel Burwell  of King William, who warned him that skinny Negroes lived long and made better servants.  After the transaction Abraham took his servant and set out for his home in Caroline selling goods along the way.  When he reached his destination the Negro was ill.  Abraham immediately put the black fellow in a feather bed, and his wife nurse him and sent for a doctor.  But for all this tender care the Negro died.  Afterwards one of the most unusual suits in the history of Caroline County arose.  Abraham accused Taylor and Cowne of selling him a Negro whom they had made ill by keeping him in a damp tobacco cellar and demanded that they return the purchase price.  Taylor and Cowne countered that he Negro was in good shape when they sold him, but that Abraham had impaired his health by forcing him to sleep on the wet ground on the selling trip from Ayletts into Caroline, giving him little to eat because he was fat and forcing him to drink much water.  Dr. Campbell  of King William testified that the Negro was all right when he left Ayletts, and Dr. George Todd  and Dr. John Sutherland  of Caroline testified that he died of pleurisy, but they both refused to state where they believed he contracted the disease." [xvii]

 

"The magistrate ruled that he might recover the profits that Taylor and Cowne made on the sale of the slave, which amounted to twelve pounds." [xviii]

In June 1743, the Cownes left Spotsylvania Co., VA to reside in King William Co., VA.  However, William returned to Caroline in 1755, at a time designated for the head of each family to appear in Court and to give the country of his birth.  On that day he came into court and proved by oath that he came to the Virginia Colony from Great Britain in 1733.  He states at this time he is a resident of King William Co., VA and serving as one of the three gentlemen justices of King William County , Virginia .  He served in this capacity with Thomas Moore  and Robert Campbell .  He also served as Sheriff of King William County.[xix]

It appears that earliest record concerning "Cowne's Store Plantation" and it's ownership appear in a patent dated 13 Aug 1763.  The patent is taken out by Wiliam Cowne on a tract of land containing ___, 100 acres on Herring Creek and Mattapony River , which had belonged to John Caesar , the younger.  This was part of the tract of land which has since born the name "Cownes".[xx]

"In 1865, Gus  and Amanda  had two sons and were expecting their third.  Mosby had been calling several times, trying to get Gus to join his Raiders.  The young father did not want to leave his pregnant wife or his farm, and besides he wasn't in accord with how Mosby was fighting the war.

 

No one knows exactly how it happened, but one morning Gus Cowne  was found in the woods behind his house, hung by a rope around the neck from a tree limb.

 

Soon after her husband was found hanged, Amanda gave birth to her third son, whom she named Cameron .  Grandma Cowne was now left with three small children, no money and a farm growing up in weeds.

 

The three little boys spent their childhood with soldiers from both the North and South fighting almost as near as their yard.  They of course clung to their mother day and night and to each other.

 

This closeness stayed with the boys all their lives.  They adored their mother and could not recognize the fact she had to do something to keep them in food and a roof over their heads.

 

Rumor has it a man by the surname of Williams  moved in with the family and farmed the Cowne farm.  This was something never talked about."[lvi]

Warrenton Cemetery, Warrenton, Fauquier Co., Virginia.

CAMERON BUILDS HIS HOUSE[xciii]

Cameron Cowne Sr.Cameron  was thirty-five when Will  married and he decided he need his own place.  Their mother, Amanda , had died in 1892, and the two boys decided to divide the farm.

 

Cameron built a house on his portion of land about one fourth mile from Will's.

 

As soon as he got a roof on his place he moved in.  He and a black man named Sol Gibson  operated the farm. Sol lived in a one-room house in the corner of the yard.  Sol was still there when Cameron died forty years later.  Sol's sister Sally  cooked for the family for many years.

 

Cameron's house was built in stages.  The last stage was the new kitchen and pantry, along with the long back porch the length of the house.  The kitchen had steps to an upstairs.  This was the cook's room for years.

 

Steps led to an upstairs room from the old kitchen, too.  We children remember there were some old broken chairs stored up there, and a fine leather side saddle that had been Effie Boteler's .

 

DADDY PRACTICES DRIVING[xciv]

 

Daddy bought a Hupmobile in 1917.  That was really a big deal.  He practiced driving in the field in front of our house.   I {Frances Amanda } was seven years old.  I begged him one day to let me ride with him while he practiced.  After several turns around the pasture, he decided to put the car away.

 

We didn't have a garage and kept the car in the barn.  As we neared the bar, I can still see Daddy pulling back on the steering wheel and calling "Whoa! Whoa!"  We went through the barn, broke the door down and if there hadn't been a straw stack on the other side we may still be going.  I never rode with Daddy again when he was practicing in the pasture.

 

It's true what they say about everybody knowing you - for instance, nobody had to use signals when they were driving, everybody knew where you were going to turn!

 

Up until the day he died in 1940 he drove a car as if it were a team of horses, and expected everyone to get out of his way.  It was always, "Can't that darn fool see I'm coming?"

 

1921[xcv]

 

Effie Cowne  raised turkeys and bought her own Model T Ford in 1921.  Her father, my Pop Pop, may have helped her pay for it.  She used to say she didn't mind hauling the turkeys in the car because they had paid for it.

 

This car was her liberation.  No other woman they knew or ever heard of would have owned or driven a car.  I {{Frances } guess I take after my mother in this way.  Mama always thought that she could do anything she wanted to, and never worried what the neighbors would think or say.

Cameron & Effie (Boteler)  Cowne  had five (5) children:

I MEET JOHN DEPUTY [cii]  


Frances Amanda Cowne

Daddy {Cameron } was shipping his milk by truck now, instead of by train.  When I'd gone home by myself, I would go back to Washington on the milk truck.  Sometimes by train, but most times on the milk truck.

 

A man by the name of Lertie Cook  was the truck driver.  His wife was very jealous of me and I didn't dare use the milk truck too often.  On one of those trips on the milk truck, which always ended up at the dairies in town, I met the man who was accepting the milk from the truck and testing it for the butter fat content.  His name was John Deputy  and I began to see him socially.

 

When I finished school in DC without a job, there was nothing else for me to do but return to Midland and the farm.

 

John would drive to the farm on weekends.  My family thought he was the best thing since sliced bread.  He ate meals with Aunt Linda  and Uncle Will , down at Pop Pop's and up on the farm.  I began to see him as a meal ticket and a way to leave the farm.

 

We were married in December just before Christmas, 1931, in Warrenton, Virginia.  The Rev. Charles Herndon , a Baptist minister, married us.  Mama, Daddy, Uncle Will and Aunt Linda were the only ones there.

Augustine Cowne graduated class of 1934, from Virginia Polytechnic Institute, receiving a Bachelor of Science Degree.  He began working for the Industrial Rayon Corporation in 1936 and remained there until he joined the Army in 1940. [civ] 

Augustine Cowne  served as a Lieutenant Colonel in the United State Army and gave service for his country in Great Britain in England during World War II (1942-1944), preparing for the Normandy invasion under General Dwight D. Eisenhower.  During WWII he reached the rank of Lt. Colonel.  After the war when the Army was scaled back he reverted to the position of Chief Warrant Officer and served as such for 17 years.  He retired from the U.S. Army on 1 Aug 1962 with the rank of Lt. Colonel, after just short of 22 years of active duty. [cv]

Following his "retirement" he taught English, History and Economics at Hamilton Holmes High School (a black High School) in 1966 and 1967.  In 1969 he taught high school (grades 8-12) on the Mattaponi Indian Reservation.  He has fond memories of his time there. [cvi]

Elisabeth Cowne, after graduating high school in 1920, taught school in a country school in Bess, Virginia.  The following year she attended the College of Wiliam & Mary, until 1923.  It is interesting to note here that Elisabeth never intended to teach school.  She had been offered a scholarship at William & Mary, which she turned down because she would not commit to teaching school upon graduation. [cvii]

After leaving William & Mary she once again began her unintended teaching career.  She taught high school in 1923 in Irongate, Virginia.  The next year she started substitute teaching for the Covington schools.  She remained in this capacity until approximately 1929.  She then remained at home raising their young son, while traveling the world during Augustine's army career.  In 1969, she once again began to teach, this time at the Mattaponi Indian Reservation, located in King William Co., VA.  She taught the lower grades (1st-7th). [cviii]

Elisabeth & Augustine Cowne met one another quite by accident at the Eppworth Methodist Church in Covington, VA.  Both had arrived at the church to attend a youth meeting.  One arriving at the back door to the church the other the front door.  Both found the door locked and began to walk around the church to the other door, where they literally bumped into one another.  That evening after church Augustine asked Elisabeth if he could walk her home and thus began their three and one-half year (3 1/2) courtship. [cix]

Augustine & Elisabeth Cowne found their lives to be very active and became quite the travelers during their early years of marriage, as Augustine was in the U. S. Army.  Some of the places that they set up housekeeping are: [cx]

Baltimore, Maryland
Ft. Belvoir, Virginia (with Elizabeth living in Washington, D.C.)
Covington, Virginia (Elizabeth lived here with their son during WWII)
Williamsport, Pennsylvania
Huntsville Arsenal, Alabama
Toole (near Salt Lake), Utah
Fort Benning, Georgia
Karls Ruhe, Germany (the name means "Carl's Rest")
Near Bordeaux, France

Munich, Germany
Fort McClellan, Alabama
Richmond, Henrico Co., Virginia

Yet their travels also included:  Italy, Rome, Monte Carlo, and Oslow, Norway.[cxi]

John and his colt "Jack"[cxii]

John never was a "farm boy" and seemed always to get out of farm chores.  His only love of the farm was the horses.  He carefully tended a colt after her mother weaned her.  He named her "Jack" which was nickname of his - John.

 

He rode Jack from the time she was about a year old.  Jack was never broken to harness, and always remained John's riding horse

WORLD WAR II[cxiii]  

John, joined the C.B.'s and fought in the Pacific arena.  He joined rather hurriedly and left his wife with two small children to care for.  I {Frances Cowne }, cared for the children until Mary  could get a job with the Federal Government and arrange for them to go to a local Jack and Jill day care center.

 

Washington, D.C., being the Capitol of the Nation, was in fear of being bombed during the war and we decided the best thing to do was take the children out of the city for the duration.

 

John  remained at this job in town and ws with us on weekends.  He stayed with his sister Sally , and we rented the house on twenty-sixth street to our mailman.

John Boteler  & Mary  (Shanholtz) Cowne  had two (2) children:
