DUDLEY

Another name in the ancestry of the Hicks/Kennedy families is Dudley. Mary (Dudley) Jeter, mother of Catherine "Caty" Jeter who married Bishop Hicks (not to be confused with Willis Bishop Hicks) was the daughter of John Dudley, Jr. and Ursula Beverly. John Dudley was a descendant of the Dudley who settled in Middlesex County, Virginia.

Ursula Beverly was the daughter of Robert Beverly and Ursula Byrd. Robert Beverly's parents were Major Robert Beverly and Mary Keeble. Ursula Byrd's father was Col. William Byrd.

The known children of John and Ursula Dudley were as follows:

John, Jr., Thomas, William, Jane (born cl733), Mary (born cl732), Ann and Ursula. According to Caroline County, Virginia Court Order Books sometime during 1742-45, John and Ursula Dudley sold three tracts of land. John Dudley died before March 8, 1750, as on that date his will was presented in the Caroline County Court by his sons John Jr. and William. on that same date, Jane and Mary Dudley chose as their guardian, their brother William. William was also appointed to be guardian of Ann, the youngest daughter.

On September 21, 1752, William Dudley, as guardian of Mary and Jane, presented an account of their share of their father's estate. John Odom believes that by 1852 Mary and Jane were married to Samuel Jeter and Samuel Sneed, respectively. Both girls would subsequently have sons named "Dudley". During the period 1750-65, several Dudley and Jeter families left the Essex-Caroline area and moved to Nottoway Parish in Amelia County, Virginia. on November 23, 1769, Amelia County, Virginia, Andrew Lea/Lee and Elizabeth Dudley, daughter of Thomas Dudley, were married. The witnesses present were William Dudley and Jane Sneed, brother and sister of Thomas Dudley.

William Dudley died in Nottoway County, Virginia, but made a non-cupative will on February 2, 1799, shortly before his death. He was married to Racheal Knight (his second wife) and since they had no children, he left his property to his wife during her lifetime, and after her death the property was to be divided equally among all the children of his three sisters.

According to Granville County, North Carolina Records, on August 4, 1800, Mary (Dudley) Jeter of Wake County North Carolina granted a Power Of Attorney to her son Robert Jeter of Granville County, to collect her share of her deceased brother's estate.

According to Court Records of both Nottaway County, VA and Granville County, NC, Samuel Sneed and his wife Jane Sneed, and Mary Jeter, Granville County, sold 133 Acres of land in Nottoway County. This acreage was a part of the tract of land on which William Dudley, deceased, once lived. Racheal Dudley paid 600 pounds for the land. Apparently she acquired a widow's dower for part of the tract of land.

In December of 1801, Stephen Sneed for Samuel Sneed, Robert Jeter for Mary Jeter, and Andrew Lea for Elizabeth (daughter of Thomas Dudley), all of North Carolina, sold property which they had inherited from William Dudley in Nottoway County, Virginia.

Stephen Sneed, son of Samuel Sneed, was Clerk of the Court for Granville County, North Carolina in 1802.
