Domingo received property by ""Headrights"". He was a cattle rancher and owned a vast amount of property in VA. It appears he was also a tobacco farmer. He apparently imported ranch help through indentureship in the 1600's. Domingo owned another 1500 acres in VA that was received through Headrights also.

PHILIP HOGGATT ca. Jan 1687 England Mary Glendenning "before July 21, 1722 as deed of property shows her name" 26 Jan 1783 Guilford Co. N.C. "HOGGATT/ HOCKETT GENEALOGY (This just lists Philip & Mary Hogget & their children
The Hoggatt (Hockett) line goes back to Philip Hoggatt. My ancestor Stephen Hoggatt changed his name to Hockett. He was son of William Hoggatt- tThe following information came from several of the books Velma Hockett Bosworth wrote. Some were called These Are Our Ancestors; Forebears of the Thornburg & Hockett Families etc.
PHILIP HOGGATT b. ca Jan 1687 England d. 26 Jan 1783 Guilford Co. N.C buried in Springfield Meeting Cemetery. He was a Quaker. One source states that he was born in Wiltshire, England; that he lived in Charsford, Chester County (now Delaware PA; & that he owned land in Albemarle County VA. m. before July 21, 1722 as 1722 deed of property shows her name. He married MARY GLENDENNING, said to have been born 8 Dec 1698 Edinburgh, Scotland d. 17 Nov 1780 Guilford Co. N.C & was the first person to be buried in Springfield Meeting Cemetery, Guilford County, North Carolina. Death recorded at Deep River MM, N.C. She was the daughter of David (George) Glendenning of Edinburgh, Scotland & Margaret Hall, also of Edinburgh. Mary's parents married 6 Jan. 1685 in Edinburgh.)
(Someone had erected a fairly new tombstones with both of their names on it--we saw it in 20001) Philip was a potter when he lived on the family farm which is now a part of the city of High Point, N.C.
Philip Hoggatt owned land on the north side of the James River in Goochland Co. VA in 1730. By 1775 Philip owned land near the southwest corner of Guilford Co. Historical Documentation map. And included in this work are hand-made maps of his N.C. properties. Aside from this, his birth & death dates, & his will, little else of his history seems to be recorded. The stories told about Philip & his wife, Mary, have become legends either oral or written, transmitted from generation to generation, & in thes process, down through the many branches of Hocketts, the tales are remembered in varying ways.
(As retold by Maggie Hockett Thacklrey, daughter of Solomon Isaac Hockett, to her niece, Doris Felkey Cartwright, who wrote a paper in the mid-1940's)
A man whose name is unknown, who lived on the northern border of England, raised a baby who was left at his gate. The baby was in a basket containing nice clothing, money & other valuable which would denote that he came from a wealthy parentage. The child had no name) a letter in the basket asked that it be raised & given the name of this unknown person. The man did as the letter requested with one exception--he would not give the child his name. Instead, he gave it the name Hoggatt; a word that meant the child was left at the gate of entrance to his estate.
(As written by Eva Eckstein, a genealogist in Salem, Oregon, who did some work for Arvilla Hockett, daughter of Otha Mills Hockett)
Philip Hoggatt left England for the United States with, or about the time of William Penn's colony & settled in Chester Co. PA where he died. His son William went to N.C. Guilford Co. as a young man & bought from the Indians the right to a mile square of land 12 miles south of Greensboro. He built a cabin in the woods, having no neighbors nearer than 18 miles. He married Hannah, daughter of John & Margaret (Hunt) Beales. Futhermore, Eva orally state that she had traced the ancestry back to the Douglas Clan in Scotland, entitling descendants to claim the Douglas Tartan as belonging to Hocketts. (She is wrong about Philip dying in Chester Co. PA because his tombstone is in Guilford Co. N.C. & he owned land there)
(As Sarah Osborne, author'/compiler of HOCKETTS ON THE MOVE reports the origins of the Hocketts in America)
The first account we have of our family dates back to about 1700 when our ancestors were still in Scotland. About this time there was born to Mr. & Mrs. George Clenenin (Glendennning?) a baby girl, Mary, who was to become the mother of a large family. Her father being a member of the Royal Guard made it possible to give her a glimpse of royal life. At the beginning of hostilities between Scotland & England, she was captured by a band of English sailors, transported immediately to America & sold to some settlers for a servant girl.
The next account we have of her was after she had met & married an English Quaker by the name of PHILIP HOGGATT. with their settlement at Chadford, Chest Co. PA we have the beginning of the present Hockett family in America.
Philip Hoggat’s WILL-- It was drawn up in 1763 --20 years before Philip died
To Philip Jr. & David (the 2 oldest boys) he gives each 5 shillings each so not to contest the will.
To Jane (Jean) he gives 10 pounds & his Bible
To William (our direct ancestor) 5 shillings so as not to contest the will--To John a pair of cart wheels, a rifle gun barrel & 5 shillings
To Anthony a pot & 5 shillings
To Joseph--the youngest son & to his heirs Philip’s plantation & all the land adjoining making a reserve to support Mary (Philip’s wife) but Mary died before Philip did.
The remaining heifers, mares, cows, sheep & swine not mentioned before to be divided between the 4 youngest sons & daughter (Jane) Jean (Philip Jr. & David not mentioned)
Philip had a Patent for a tract of 200 acres of land in Albemarle County in Virginia--to be divided by the last 5 children (not Philip Jr. or David)
Children of Philip & Mary Glendenning HOGGATT

N.C. By 1750 a few Quaker families began to emigrate to the area around where Springfield now stands. With the white settlers was a restless wanderer, William Hoggatt, from PA & VA who came about 1750. He selected land and as some think, he purchased it from the Indians. However it is of record that in 1755 949 acres of homestead land that he claimed was surveyed & granted to him by King George II of England 10 May 1759. It seems possible that both stories of his acquiring of land could be true. There is a lot more information about him.

George Addison 1728 Ireland Sarah Gott Aft. 1751 21 December 1786 "Goffstown, New Hampshire" "Looking for additional information on this family. They immigrated and settled in Londonderry, NH in 1751 and moved on to Goffstown subsequent to 1758. He was a constable in 1780. Looking for actual birthdate and birthplace. All I know is that in Goffstown History, states that they came from Waugh Parish. Think they were one of the Scots-Irish settlers who came from Ireland as Goffstown was a Presbyterian town, as many of the Scots-Irish moved. Where do I go from here?
