Elias Yates (or Yeates) (About 1620-1693)
Elias was born in Old Rappahannock County, Virginia. Elias married Mary Hudson (bef.1663-aft 1692) in Virginia in 1679.¹ The couple married in North Farnham Parish, Richmond County, Virginia.
Rappahannock County, Virginia (1656)
The Rappahannock County of today’s Virginia is not the same as the Old Rappahannock County where the Yeates family lived. The Old Rappahannock County does not exist any longer as it was divided into two new counties, Essex County and Richmond County.
Rappahannock was the name of the local native people of that part of what is now Virginia. Rappahannock meant “the people of the tidal river stream that changed with the ocean tides.
The present Rappahannock County was created in 1833 in a different location. It was created from part of Culpeper County, and named after the Rappahannock River.
The Old Rappahannock County was one of the areas just north of Jamestown (James City). The settlers migrated from the old 1620 Colony. In 1653, the County of Lancaster was divided and the upper part became Rappahannock County. At the time, the waterways were the mode of transportation and tobacco was the currency. The county was divided into “Parishes”. The first Parish was called Sittingbourne. In 1981 Sittingbourne Parish was divided and St. Mary’s Parish was formed.The Church was pretty much in charge of the people.
