Notes for Guillaume FOUQUET:

(Research):Vol 2, p 335, Bk 8
Thomas Cook, Senr., 816 acres, Henrico Co, Verina Parish; p. 1, S. side Chickahaminy main SW; beg at land known as Oposum, in possession of Jno Baxter; crossing a br. of Oposom, to Mr Blands' corner, along Mr Richard Cock, & C Importation of 17 persons: Jane Borar, Robt Beasley, Jno Witt, Joane White, Alex ____, Patrick Foster, Robt Povey, Jno Edwards, GILL FUCKETT, Tho Mathews, Hen Baltamore, Fra Cleavely, Hugh Davis, Jno Herbert, Eliza Harrison, Negro Nell, Benetta Clame.

The record above refers to Thomas "Cocke"

This is believed to be our "Guillaume Fouquet". Although he was listed among 17 persons imported by Thomas Cocke, it was quite common for imports to be claimed for persons who were not actually imported, and this may have been such a case.

It should be noted that two years later, "Gill" purchased items from the estate of Frances Cleaverly, one of the persons on that import list. Robert Beasley and Robert Povey (Povall), who were also on the list, aslo made purchases. In addition, Ralph Hudspeth, "Gill's" brother-in-law, purchased items. Both "Gill" and Ralph collected money form the estate (owed to them by Francis Cleaverly). There were several combinations of persons, both on the list and not, who acted as sureties for one another's purchases. It seems obvious that those folks knew and trusted each other, they were not just some guys who took a boat ride together.

William Randolph was the coroner and county clerk who dealt with the estate of Frances Cleaverly.

Vol 3, page 1
Capt William Randolph, 2926 acres, Chas City Co in Wynoke Par; on Pigeon SW, on S side of James River, 25 Oct 1695, p 2 Imp of 59 persons, including GILL FUCKET.

Randolph's import claim in 1695 included on his list of importees the same 17 as had been claimed by Thomas Cocke, including Francis Cleaverly (who had been dead for several years, and whose estate settlement had been recorded by Randolph).
