The Chilcott family of Dorchester County, Maryland

Journal by 141957

MY CHILOTT FAMILY WAS PROBABLY FROM FRANCE, GERMANY, OR ENGLAND.
ANTHONY CHILCOTT, SR. CAN BE FOUND FROM CENSUS RECORDS, LAND RECORDS, AND WILLS IN DORCHESTER COUNTY, MARYLAND CIRCA 1640. ANTHONY CHILOTT AND HIS WIFE MARGARET ?? WERE PROBABLY FARMERS. ANTHONY CHILCOTT RECEIVED A PATENT FOR 300 ACRES FROM MAJOR THOMAS TAYLOR. TAYLOR RECEIVED HIS LAND FROM LORD BALTIMORE (I DO NOT KNOW FROM WHICH ONE)
OF THE CALVERT FAMILY. THE 300 ACRES OF LAND AWARDED TO ANTHONY, CHILCOTT, SR. WAS CALLED "WORLD'S END" THERE IS STILL A MARKER IN DORCHESTER COUNTY, MD. A CHILCUTT COUSIN FOUND IT ON A TRIP TO MARYLAND, AND IT STILL SAYS "WORLD'S END". THE PICTURE HE TOOK IS VERY GRAINY, BUT YOU CAN MAKE OUT THE WORDS. IT IS ON THE EAST SIDE OF CHESEAPEAKE BAY, AND THE NORTHWEST RIVER FORK OF NANTICOKE.
MY LINE GOES NEXT TO GEORGE CHILLCOTT (CHILCUTT, CHILLCUTT, OR SHILCUTT)WHO MARRIED SARAH ??. THEY LIVED AT "WORLD'S END". GEORGE LEFT A WILL FOR HIS 3 CHILDREN AND WIFE SARAH. HE GAVE THEM LAND, CATTLE, AND HORSES. JOHN CHILCOTT, GEORGE AND SARAH'S OLDEST SON, WAS BORN IN DORCHESTER CO., MD. HIS WIFE WAS REBECCA ??. THEY HAD 12 CHILDREN. THIS CHILCUTT FAMILY MOVED TO GUILFORD COURTHOUSE, NC. JOHN CHILCUTT MAY HAVE FOUGHT IN THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION IN THE SOUTHERN BATTLES AGAINST THE BRITISH. (NO PROOF) THE EIGHTH CHILD WAS JAMES LEWIS CHILCUTT AND WIFE DEBORAH WEATHERLY.(NOTE- ON OLD MAPS WE HAVE FOUND THAT THE WEATHERLY FAMILY ARE MOVING WITH THE CHLCUTT FAMILY FROM MARYLAND, NC., TO TENNESEE.) THE CHILCUTT AND WEATHERLY FAMILY MOVED TO CLEVELAND, TN.-BRADLEY COUNTY. THEIR CHILDREN FOUNDED A CHILCUTT SCHOOL AND A CHILCUTT METHODIST CHURCH 10 MILES FROM CLEVELAND, TN. THE CHURCH IS STILL USED BY THE SMALL COMMUNITY THERE. IT IS IN GREAT CONDITION. THE LOCAL PEOPLE IN THAT AREA ARE TO BE ADMIRED FOR TAKING SUCH GREAT CARE OF THE CHILCUTT CHURCH AND CEMETERY. JAMES WRIGHT CHILCUTT AND DEBORAH ARE BURIED IN THIS CEMETERY. THE CHILCUTTS, IN TN., MARRIED INTO THE GOINS, COWDEN, WEATHERLY, STARRAT, EDWARDS, WIMPY, DEARING, LEE, AND LAWSON FAMILIES OF BRADLEY CO., TN. THEIR OLDEST DAUGHTER, DINA MARRIED INTO THE GOIN'S FAMILY. THIS IS ABOUT THE ONLY FAMILY MEMBERS THAT STILL LIVE IN BRADLEY CO., TN. JAMES AND DEBORAH CHILCUTT'S SON ANDREW CHILCUTT MARRIED ELIZABETH WIMPY. THEY ARE BOTH BURIED IN BRADLEY CO., TN. THEIR SON, JOHN ADEN CHILCUTT, MARRIED MARGARET JANE SMITH OF POLK CO. TN.
THEY MOVED TO TEXAS IN THE 1870S. THEY HAD THEIR SECOND CHILD IN ARKANSAS ON THEIR WAY TO TEXAS. JAMES CORNELIUS CHILCUTT WAS BORN IN 1873. JOHN AND MARGARET MOVED TO WEATHERFORD, TX.-PARKER COUNTY. THEY WERE FARMERS. JAMES C. CHILCUTT MARRIED WILLIE SUE STRICKLAND OF PARKER CO., TEXAS. THEY WERE MY GREAT-GRANDPARENTS. THEIR SON DANIEL LUKE CHILCUTT MARRIED ALTA SALOMA RICH IN PARKER CO., TX. MY MOTHER MARGIE ALENE CHILCUTT MARRIED MARVIN PIERCE LOTT, JR.
A LOT OF SMITHS CAME WITH JOHN ADEN AND MARGARET JANE CHILCUTT TO TEXAS. THEY ARE ALL BURIED IN THE SPRINGTOWN CEMETERY IN PARKER CO. TEXAS
EVERY OCTOBER, ON THE FIRST WEEKEND, WE HAVE A CHILCUTT REUNION WHERE ALMOST 100 OR MORE COME. I CURRENTLY RUN THE REUNION--FOR THE LAST 10 YEARS! ANYONE WHO IS INTERESTED IN THE CHILCUTT REUNION IS INVITED.
