Major Edward Dale

Pedigree Chart A W Cox (Indented) (#2)
     Major Edward Dale was born in 1624 at London, England.1 He married Diana Skipwith, daughter of Sir Henry Skipwith and Amy Kemp.2,3,4 Major Edward Dale was living at Rappahannock River, Lancaster, Virginia, US.5 He held the several offices in Lancaster Virginia. In a few years Major Dale began taking a prominent part in county affairs, and from 1655 to 1674 served as clerk of Lancaster nineteen years, justice of the county court fourteen years, high sheriff four years, and member of the House of Burgesses two years.

Edward Dale appears as clerk of Lancaster county in 1655 and continued in this office until May ioth, 1674, when John Stretchley took the oath of clerk of the county. March 8th. 1670, Major Dale's son-in-law, Thomas Carter, Sr., was commissioned deputy clerk. In colonial days the clerk was probably the most important officer next after the county lieutenant, and besides belonging to the local gentry, was one of the leading men of his county, which needs no other proof than the mention of such names as: Sir Marmaduke Beckwith, Sir Grey Skipwith, Peter Beverley, Benj. Harrison, Wm. Nelson, Wm. Stanard, Robert Bolling, Wm. Randolph, Wm. Fitzhugh, Thomas Lee, and dozens of names of other men of equal prominence who were clerks of their respective counties.

In the years 1670, 1671,1679 and 1680, Edward Dale was commissioned High Sheriff of Lancaster. He was a justice of the county court from some time prior to Feb. 8, 1670, to April, 1684, when his name appears for the last time among the members of the court, which included such men as Col.John Carter, Mr. David Fox, Mr. Wm. Ball, Capt. Thomas Carter, Mr. Raw Travers, Mr. Rich. Parrott, and Mr. John Curtis.

In November, 1677, and January, 1682-3, Edward Dale received pay in tobacco for services as a Burgess-eight thousand eight hundred and fifty-five pounds for each service.

His part in Bacon's Rebellion seems to have been that he represented Lancaster county "Att a Committy (by Order of Ye Grand Assembly) for Laying a Levy in the Northern Neck for ye charge in Raisinge ye forces thereof for suppressing ye late rebellion mett at Capt. Beales ye 14th of August 1677 being present Mr. Wm. Presley, Majr Ed. Dale, Major Isaac Allerton, Mr. Peter Presley, Coll. Wm. Travers, Coll. Sal! Griffin, Coll. George Mason, & Mr. Martin Scarlett."5,6
The Lancaster records show no deed for land to Major Dale prior to May 6, 1663, when he had a certificate for 750 acres by assignment from Rich. Perrott; and on the same date five hundred acres by assignment from Richard Merryman. March 30th, 1662, John and Margaret Paine sold to Richard Merryman "the plantation whereon Mr. Edwd Dale now liveth."

Feb. 2, 1664, Major Dale had a deed from Edward Lunsford for three hundred and fifty acres of land on the easternmost branch of Corotoman River, and Dec. 14th, of the same year, a deed from Wm. Chappan for seven hundred acres on the same branch, for the two of which he paid eleven thousand pounds of tobacco.

Feb. 1, 1668, he paid Wm. Cappel, "Maryner," twelve thousand pounds of tobacco for five hundred acres; and in May, 1681, the same amount to Thomas Chetwood, merchant, for six hundred acres. Of these thirty-four hundred acres he deeded five hundred to his daughter, Catherine Carter, in 1674, and six hundred acres to his daughter, Elizabeth Rodgers, in 1677.

His home plantation in St. Mary's White Chapel parish contained some six hundred acres, and the remainder he sold before his death.7
The tax lists show that Major Dale kept from two to four servants, so he could not have done much farming. In all of his deeds and other papers he was always styled, "Edward Dale, Gentleman," a title that in the seventeenth century was defined with legal precision and its use not permitted to anyone who had not the right to it.4
Major Dale and wife in consideration of the love they bore their daughter Katharine wife of Mr. Thomas Carter conveyed to them two negro boys. After death of Carter and wife the boy named Robin to go to his grandson Edward Carter, and the boy James to the rest of his Carter grandchildren.8 He left a will on Aug 4, 1694, "Edward Dale of the County of Lancaster in Rappk. River in Virga. Gent." made his will, and after commending his soul to God and his body to be decently buried icwthout any wine drinking" disposes of his worldly estate as follows:

1st. If his wife should happen to outlive him he gives to her the profit of his entire estate-"it being * * * had to her as an honest woman, a Gentlewoman, and a great many years my wife."

2nd. After the death of his wife he gave his home plantation with all tools, etc., to his grandsons Peter and Joseph Carter, equally; also a negro, James to Peter Carter and a negro Robin to Joseph Carter, when they should arrive at the age of twenty-one years.

In January 1711/12 they divided their grandfather Dale's plantation in St. Mary's White Chapel Parish.

3rd. To granddaughter Elizabeth Carter his best bed and furniture and a trunk.

4th. To daughter Elizabeth Rogers twelve pounds in full of all claim upon his estate.

5th. The residue of his estate to be divided equally between his grandchildren Elizabeth, Catharine, Peter and Joseph Carter-all of whom were at that time under legal age.

6th. His daughter, Katharine Carter to have control and use of entire estate until the above named grandchildren should become of age.

Appoints daughter Katharine Carter and grandson Edward Carter executors of his will. It was probated March 16, 1695.

The Inventory of his personal estate returned to court March 30th, 1695, amounted to ten thousand six hundred and seven pounds of tobacco, and included besides the usual household and plantation furniture, a parcel of books, 3 pictures, two silver dram cups and a pair of silver tongs.

The original will of Major Dale, like all other original papers of his, has disappeared from the Clerk's office at Lancaster Court House, but fortunately his son-in-law, Thomas Carter, sealed his will in 1700 with a seal that has been recognized as the crest of the Dales.8 He died on Feb 2, 1695. His son-in-law Capt. Thomas Carter Sr. wrote the following in his prayer book on Feb. 20, 1695 -"Mr. Edw: Dale Departd this life on ye 2d Day Feb: 1695 and Mrs Diana Dale on ye last of July."

"He descended from an Ancient Family in England & came into ye Colly of Virga after the Death of his Unhappy Master Charles First. For above 30 years he enjoyed various Employments of Public Trust in ye Coty of Lancaster wch he Dischred wth great Fidelity & Satisfacn. to the Governnor & People.

As neighbor-Father-husband he excelled and in early yeares Crownd his other Accommplishments by a Felicitous Marriage wth Diana ye daughter of sr Henry Skypwith of Preswold in ye Coty of Leicester Bart who is left a little while to Mourn him."2,9
Major Dale was a man who held tenaciously to his opinion and one who demanded from all the proper respect due to his social and official position-characteristics that are illustrated in the old records at Lancaster Court House.

In the fifteen years that he was a member of the county court he was the only one of the Justices who frequently dissented from the opinion of the others and had his dissentions recorded. February 8th, 1670, he routed the entire court and caused them to adjourn without transacting any business, as besides the date and names of the justices the only record made of the meeting is as follows: "Mr. Edward Dale, Clerk of this County & in Commission for the peace, and high Sherriff of this County conceiving himself sufficiently qualified to sett covered in Court wch some of ye sd Justices would not allow of they did thereupon adjourn till ye second Wednesday in the month next."

Another story that has come down through his descendants related how in his loyalty to the King he transgressed one of the strongest of Virginia's unwritten laws-the law of hospitality.

The story relates that upon one occasion a stranger stopped at Major Dale's house just about the dinner hour. His horse was sent to the stable and he was invited to join the family at the dinner just then served. When they were seated at the table the visitor immediately bowed his head and offered a long puritanical prayer in which he asked rich blessings for Oliver Cromwell, and especial curses for King Charles II. This so incensed Major Dale that he ordered the man from the table, sent a servant for his horse, and told him to hunt for dinner elsewhere. after 1696.10
