  • Notes 
    • Supposedly this individual's surname was STRANGE, but when he
      moved from Virginia he started using his middle name of Alloway
      as his surname. This is as stated from a direct descendent of
      this line.

      ___________________________________________________________
      John Alloway Strange's birthdate is known from a bible record made by one of his sons, but his birthplace is not known. There was an Alloway family living at North Farnham Parish, Virginia, probably descended from John Alloway who came from Bristol to Virginia between 1663 and 1679, but no connection has been found with this family and a Strange family. There are indications that John's father was an Abner Alloway Strange and his grandfather Edmond. John first appears at Albemarle County, Virginia, and later at Fluvanna County which was formed from Albemarle in 1777. He owned over 3,000 acres. This area was the frontier. Homes were made of logs. The principal crop was tobacco, cultivated by slaves. In 1767 he was one of the executors of the estate of his brother-in-law Thomas Mitchell. In December 1779 he had a patent for 200 acres on Ballenger Creek. His first wife died circa 1781 and in 1782 he re-married. Also in 1782 he bought another 200 acres in Fluvanna County. The census of that year shows 6 white and 11 blacks in his household. In 1786 he was one of the executors of his father-in-law, John Barneff's, will. He appears on the 1787 tax list of Fluvanna County, along with an Abner Alloway who was probably his son of that name. In 1778 he had been a Vestryman of the Established Church, but seems to have become a Baptist after the disestablishment of the Anglican Church in 1789. On 3 July 1795 John A. Strange and his son-in-law Benjamin Bowles were elected Deacons of Lyles Baptist Church in Fluvanna County, Virginia, and his name appears in their records as a frequent contributor. John A. Strange made his own will on 7 June 1810, and it was proved 28 October 181 1. His will gives 600 acres, including the plantation house and other houses and mills on the same tract, to his widow Mildred until her death or remarriage and then to his son Gideon. He gives a house and lot in Bernardsburg to his grandson Jesse. He gives to an Elizabeth Bragg who was living in his household a horse and saddle and confirmed a previous gift of a featherbed and furniture, all to be delivered to her when she turns 21 or marries. Since John was executor for his son-in-law Samuel Bell and had advanced his grandson John Bell his share of Samuel's estate, he required that his grandson waive any further claims for the Samuel Bell estate and provide title to a slave, Judy, which Alloway had purchased from the estate. Finally John Alloway gave the slave Judy to his widow. Except for these provisions, the estate was to be divided according to law. His children moved west in the late 1700's, some using the name Alloway and some using the name Alloway Strange. Records pertaining to John and his descendants are found under both names.

      In your work you referenced a father for John A. Strange, b 2/1727 as possibly Abner whose father may have been Edmond.
      My continued research has located the same John Alloway Strange whose father was Edmond Alloway Strange, b 1695 in Goochland, VA, d 1760. Edmond was married to a "Rose" b <1705 in Fluvanna, VA. The same file also notes that Edmond's father was Edmond Alloway Strange, b 1660 in Goochland and died 1720. No other information. This was found on the FamilySearch Ancestral File (v4.19) made available by the LDS church. You may already have this information, if not, hope the favor is being returned to your. Mike

      Three children: Margaret b 1941, Kathleen b 1944, Robert Craig b 1950

      2. Robert James McNamara, b 1866 Mass., (Father and mother both born in Ireland, Patrick 1820, Elizabeth 1825)

      4. Gideon Elijah M. Strange, 1815 VA- 1909 MO
      married Clara Hickman, b MO
      Two sons; William and Gideon

      5. William Clayburn Alloway Strange, 1783 VA - 1834 VA (Rock Rest Cemetery, Dog Point, Fluvanna, VA)
      married Mary Gregory Perkins, 1786-1845
      Nine children including Gideon E. M.

      6. John Alloway Strange, Sr, 1727 - 1811 VA
      married Mildred Ann Barnett b1751 on 4/27/1882 (second wife, first died 1881)
      Four children, William 1783, George 1786, Sally 1788 & Gideon (Colonel) 1793

      7. John Alloway Strange Sr parentage has yet to be proved, thought to be son of
      Edmond Alloway Strange III, b 1695-1760 VA, mother unknown \

      8. Edmond Alloway Strange II, b 1655 - 1715

      9. Edmond Alloway Strange I b1625 - 1685

      10. William Strange b 1601 (believed from Scotland, arrived Virginia 1619)

      Those names in direct line with John Alloway Strange, Sr are in bold print. Please be aware, as I have noted above, the true parentage of John, Sr has not been "Proved", however, there are historical documents attesting to the immigration of William Strange who appears to have been the father of Edmond Strange I. The middle name "Alloway" is thought to be that of the mother's maiden name. For historical purposes, I would rely on John Sr as the first generation, discounting Edmond I, II, III and William until more information can sustain the relationship.
      I have considerable history of John Sr as a plantation owner and community leader in Fluvanna County, VA. He twice married, having a total of nine children. It is also recorded that he had nine slaves. My family roots attest with John Sr and his first wife Anne Mildred Mitchell. Robert Strange McNamara line descends down from the second marriage to Mildred Ann Barnett. I hope this will fill in some blanks or add some new lines. Let me know if I can help you with any additional information.
