She was born 3 feb 1703, St Peter's Parish, New Kent, VA and died 5 jun 1765 Albemarle, VA.

From Accounts of Thomas Partridge Store and Company in Hanover County, Virginia we see on 1st of March 1737, page 272 Wm Slading. on 10th of October 1737, page 251, William Sladding. On 22 June 1738, page 32 WM Sladding. On 12th of July 1738 William Sladding and on 5th of June 1739 William Sladden.

Unfortunately, scant shreads of records are left of Hanover County, but the store accounts at least prove that he was there and provides living utinsels they purchased or traded. See above for deed of giving slave and fifty shillings to JohN Rodes for his upkeep.

In 1787 Albemarle personal property tax list shows John Rodes Sr with William Slatin listed under him as John Rodes with 2 white tithes, 12 blacks, 18 horses, 10 cattle, and tax of 74 pence.

      8.  John Shadden (Source: (1) Virginia Land Patent Book 9 (1695-1706) pg 19 by John Hiton and Ralph Wormely. Secretary of Virginia, Kings and Queen Co., VA., (2) Vestry Book of St. Paul's Parish Book  pg 181, 182, 189, 191and 204, (3) Goochland Co. Court Order Book 5 (1741-1744), pgs 3 & 244.), born 1675 in England; died 22 Mar 1720 in Hanover, VA.

Notes for John Shadden:

John Sladden was the immigrant who was transported on the 25th of October 1695 seen in Virginia Land Patent Book 9 (1695-1706), page 19 by John Hinton and Ralph Wormeley, secretary of Virginia lying in King and Queen County, Virginia.     Was probably indentured for seven years to Ralph Wormeley and then moved to Hanover County, Virginia as seen on 17th of March 1711-12 in the Vestry Book of St Paul's Parish Book, page 181, in land procession records, precinct 28.    Seen again on 3rd of April 1716, page 189 and again on the 10th of Feb 1719.

 

There is a Creek named Slayden Creek which empties into the Machumps Creek and is between the present court house and Ashland. No doubt married in Virginia since no spouse transported but unknown to this author.    Died in Hanover Virginia and had three known sons William Sladden, Arthur Sladden, and Abraham Sladden. John Sladden came from England, either Kent or Yorkshire/lancanshire region. One other possible is East Willow in Hampshire, England.

 

Virginia land patents seen below show a John Slayden and John Slaterne with the same dates recorded. Is this the same person who is recorded and claimed by two different men of Virginia? Although, this cannot be proven more extensively, evidence shows that John Sladden immigrated to New Kent County, Virginia by 1711. John Sladden is thought to be in Saint Paul's Parish by the 28th of March 1704 as his son, Arthur Sladden was born there.

Three Chopted Road

 

On 19th of June 1733, Goochland County Court issued an order for a road to be started. This central geographical road was the most important stage route in the state for the colonists, including three brothers, Arthur, William and Abraham Sladden. The road was commonly known as the Three Chopted or Notched Road. The route was originally formed by the Indians and used as a trail that led to the foothills east of the Blue Ridge Mountains. This road was surveyed out by Peter Jefferson, the father of the author of the Declaration of Independence. It started from Richmond, Virginia and expanded to the western borders of Goochland County, later Albemarle County.

Two famous historical accounts were attributed to the Three Chopted Road. On 3rd of June 1781, the road served as a gateway for Jack Jouett's famous 38 mile all-night horse ride to warn the Governor, Thomas Jefferson, of the approachment of the British Calvary Officer, Colonel Banastre Tarleton, and his Dragons. Richmond had fallen and Governor Jefferson had gone to Monticello near Charlottesville as the Legislature was in session there. Jouett while at Cuckoo Tavern, overheard about Tarleton's plan to dash for Charlottesville and surprise the Governor and the legislature, but Jouett was able to warn them in time.

Later in 1781, General George Washington sent Marquis De LaFayette to march along the Three Notched Road taking ahold near Giles Allegres' Tavern on Mechunk Creek, to intervene between Lord Earl Cornwallis, who was then in Goochland and Military stores at Albemarle's Old Court House, near Scottsville. This eventually lead Cornwallis to surrender at Yorkstown.

On 17th of May 1737, Goochland County Court ordered Michael Wood to clear the road from Blue Ridge down to Ivy Creek via Mechunk Creek and Woods Gap. By 1741, The Goochland County Court issued an order what apparently was the final part of completing the Three Chopted Road from Secretary's Ford on the Rivanna River to the D. S. Tree on Michael Wood's road ( D. S. is thought to be the initials of Davis Stockdon, a landholder near Ivy).

On Tuesday, 15th of September 1741, Goochland County Court Order Book 5 (1741-1744), page 3, shows Abraham Sladden living along the Three Chopted Road. "On the petition of Davis Lewis, George Taylor, William Hargis, Samuel Stiles, James Ffrazier, Howard Cash, James Treland, David Lewis Jr., Chas Caffry, David Rees, William Lewis, Abraham Sladen, and William Williams, leave is granted them to clear a road from the Secretary's Ford to the D. S. Tree and that the Petitioners be exempt from working on any other road."

In 1742, the Three Chopted Road became the boundary line between Goochland and Louisa Counities. This Louisa County Road traverses the county from end to endmaking westward expansion easily accesible. Charles Allen, Arthur Sladden, Callum Holman Bailey, William Groom, Edmond Hodges, William Isbell, Dabney Carr and others were owners on both sides of this road.

On 20th of September 1743, Goochland County Court Order Book 5, page 244, "David Lewis is appointed surveyor of the road from the D. S. Tree, down to Moor's Creek and into the Secretary's Ford and that the tithables (this included Abraham Sladen) near the said road do clear the same."

Arthur Sladden moved from New Kent County, Virginia to Goochland County, Virginia by the 14th of September 1741, where he bought land on the Lickinghole Creek, near the Three Chopted Road. On the 24th of April 1752, he bought land in Louisa County which was on both sides of the Three Chopted Road. He later sold this to William Isbell and his son, William Slayden.

In 1766, William Sladden was found living next to John Rodes who is recorded living near the Three Chopted Road in Albemarle County. All three brothers lived near this road which became the route they would have used in their westward expansion. 

==========================================================================

 

Edgar E MacDonald, a respected Virginia Archivist and Genealogist, who has published several articles in different Virginia magazines, stated , "English names were almost invariably stressed on the first syllable, and the secondary or unstressed syllables were usually recorded a number of spellings owing to their more or less mumbled, indistinct sounds. In the name Sladding, doubtless a hearer might render the off syllables as 'in', 'erne', 'en', 'yen', or 'ing' (with the letter g not sounded as it frequently is not today)." Thus Mr MacDonald suggested a good case could be made to associate John Slaterne in the patents of 1695 with John Sladding later in the processing records of St Paul's Parish.

 

Richard Slatten, a Virginia Genealogist and Pioneer in Virginia Genealogy, accomplished tremendous achievements in collecting valuable Virginia loose papers, established Friends of Virginia Society, Editor of Virginia Genealogy Magazine, and President of Virginia Genealogy Society several times. He thought the John Slaterne was probably later the same individual John Sladding or Sladden.  King and Queen County was just across a narrow river from New Kent County, later Hanover County. He concluded that, Page's land is likely that which later became Page's Warehouse on the Pamunkey River, just across from Hanovertown in Hanover County. "Other Headright names in the Wormeley grant are later Hanover names. John Sladdin or Sladden's land is just a few miles west, up the Pamunkey and South Anna Rivers, in the path of westward expansion. His land was between the present Hanover Court House and the town of Ashland." Richard and Edgar lived for a number of years near John Sladdin or Sladden's land and the headwaters of the Creek that still today bears his name, Slayden Creek (note spelling). Richard Slatten was buried at the cemetery near this site.

 

History has changed the name of Slayden to various spellings. The sound changes in a language affect the spelling often changing when one relocates in different regions of the world. In the surname Slayden, sounds made in spoken utterance to a clerk of some county or shire, may take upon an entire new spelling, as it did from country to country. The surname of Slayden was used interchangably in England as well as in the States. In England, The Grand Card Index of the Society of Genealogists, listed the following accepted variations of Slaton: "Slayton, Slaton, Sladen, Sladden, Slayden, Slaten, Slodden, Sladdin, Sladyen, and Sladding."

 

John Slayden's wife is unknown  due to lost records of Queen and King, New Kent, and Hanover County Records. He probably married 1690-1700. All of John Slayden's children are not known as well. Family records of Arthur Slayden of New Kent County, state his father was John Slayden. Arthur was born in Saint Paul's Parish where John Slayden lived. A William and Abraham Sladding or Slayden were recorded living in Hanover County in the Thomas Partridge Store Accounts in late 1730's prior to moving to Albemarle County and are contemporaries of Arthur Slayden. It is almost certain since no other Slaydens existed in the Colonies during this time period as well as living in the County of Hanover as John Slayden did, that they were indeed his children.

==================================

 

John Slayden, the immigrant, and his family lived on Machumps Creek, Hanover County, Virginia as even today there lies the Creek bearing the name Slayden Creek which empties into Machumps Creek. John Slayden arrived to Virginia as seen below and shows a John Slayden and John Slaterne with the same dates recorded. Is this the same person who is recorded and claimed by two different men of Virginia? John Slayden is thought to be in Saint Paul's Parish, Hanover County, Virginia by the 28th of March 1704 as his son, Arthur Slayden was born there.

On 25th of October 1695, Virginia Land Patent Book 9 (1695-1706), page 19, shows John Slayden, Jane Battersby, and Mayworth Quinton under John Hinton.
