Emanuel Walker

Emanuel Walker does not occur very frequently in the records.  Only one lives in Virginia prior to Buckley Walker's son Emanuel.  The prior Emanuel appears in Northumberland County in the late 1600s and early 1700s which incidentally is the same area that another Moses Walker (b.1766 and lived in Middlesex County) comes from.

From the St. Stephens Parish Register in Northumberland County we learn that:

Emanuel Walker had at least six children:

  1. Richard Walker     b. May 8, 1690
  2. Emanuel Walker     b. April 23, 1692
  3. Francis Walker      b. April 15, 1694 (Francis is a son)
  4. Mary Walker          b. Jan 5, 1695
  5. John Walker          b. April 10, 1701
  6. Elizabeth Walker  b. Feb 23, 1703

We also learn from Northumberland County Apprentiships (OB 1699-1713,part 2,757&758) that:

Ann Walker orphan of Emanuel and Mary Walker and Richard Walker orphan of same are bound to gaurdians in 1711.  We are not certain that this is Emanuel the father or son but it seems to be the father because Nathaniel Walker is born to Emanuel Walker on Sept. 10, 1741.

Also, a Northumberland land record dated July 2, 1707 between John Ingram and Ralph Bickley indicates that Emanuell Walker's home is adjacent to Bickley's property. Bickley - Buckley ???

Further records in St. Stephens Parish indicate:

Richard Walker had at least seven children by Rachel _______

  1. Ann                     17 August 1742
  2. Richard                20 January 1745
  3. John                     15 February 1747
  4. Winifred               20 February 1749
  5. Elizabeth               22 February 1751
  6. Milley                   9 April 1753
  7. Mosly                  6 February 1756

Mosly - Moses ???

Another Emanuel Walker is mention in the will of Thomas Walker of Somerset County, Maryland of April 26, 1766.
