RE: New gravestone for Jesse Maupin
Per your request I removed one of my photos to give space for your new photo.
I assume that you know that if you sponsor a memorial, a mere one time cost of $5.00, you can add as many as 25 photos.

Maupin family history
Hi M. Ann,

Thank you for the link to Marie's book! I'll check that out.

Concerning your question: "Which pages refer to your descendants?", none of my descendants are named in Marie's book.
She had researched, compiled and published her book before I even began researching. Hence I had no opportunity to provide her with any info on any of my descendants. She only had info down to two or three generations before me on my line.

PLEASE use my email, not my Find A Grave contributor's page for correspondence.

Maupin family history
Hi M. Ann,

Thanks for your response to my previous post!

Please contact me directly by email at
so we can continue our correspondence.

I had harvested your Maupin line as far as Micajah, and would be interested in obtaining additional info for my files.

I do not have any photos of Maupin descendants prior to Arthur Cook Schnorf (1824-1882) who is the spouse of Nancy Hawkins Adkins (1824-1895), who was the d/o Margaret Maupin Neal (1788-1854), who was the d/o Virginia Ann Miller (1768-1854), who was the d/o Margaret Maupin (C1736-1827), who was the d/o Daniel Maupin (1700-1788), who was the s/o Gabriel Maupin & Marie Hersent.

Arthur's photo & grave marker may be viewed on his Find A Grave memorial #40078911.

I will be watching for your response!
Can you please provide me with the link to the online version of the Maupin book? I can see the value of being able to search through it electronically.

Thank you,

Marie Hersant Maupins
Per Sherry Mason
Last year I discovered a small Maupin cemetary in Williamsburg, VA. in the restored area, behind the Talliaferro-Cole House where the Maupins lived. I could read 1860 on one of the stones and on another the name of Jno. M. Maupin and Thomas J. Harrell.

Per Mary Marler Winham
My parents, years ago, my Mother was a Maupin, went thru Williamsburg and thru that very cemetery. The cemetery was owned by John M. Maupin in 1838. The two graves you saw were John M. Maupin, b. 1846, d. March 11, 1870, age 24. The other was Thomas J. Harrell b. 1849, d. March 11, 1870, age 21. Date of burial was March 13, 1870. Both died from a fall from a horse and were buried in "Mrs. Maupin's" Garden. The clergyman was Thomas M. Ambler, rector of Bruton Parish Church. Also there is John M. Maupin, b. 1807, d. Dec 26, 1850. He obtained a lot opposite Bruton Parish Church about 1838, still owned by Maupin's in 1928. He married, first, Mathilda E. Cole, cousin of his second wife, Catherine Travis. The earliest stone in this cemetery says "In memory of John M. Maupin, who died, Dec 26, 1850, aged 43 years. Another stone that was broken and some carving hard to read said, "Our Darling __________, b. Aug 4, 1850, d. Feb 12, 1860. On lower corner of this stone is something else that is illegible. Another broken stone has initials "J. M.". Also there are fragments of other stones. Can't remember the exact date my folks were there but somewhere around the late 60's.

Per Leon L. Stebleton
Gabriel Maupin married to Marie Hersent on September 2, 1691 in Amsterdam, Holland, Netherlands Huguenots. The original Walloon Church records are located in the Walloon Library Archives, Amsterdam. Marie Hersent was born in France, but was living in England at the time of her marriage to Gabriel in Amsterdam, Holland. Source: Family History Library Film #199888. Gabriel and his wife Marie Hersent were born in France. They were Hugenots (protestants) that fled the country and were married in the Netherlands. They settled in England where their two sons, Gabriel (Jr.) and Daniel were born. In 1700 they came to the Colonies and settled in Williamsburg, VA. Later on, one of them married a woman who was 1/2 Cherokee. The Maupin's were of French descent. However, a Franklin M. Maupin married a Laura Richardson, who was believed to have been 1/2 Native American. I believe Laura's mother was a full blooded Cherokee, and was from Kentucky. Franklin Maupin and Laura Richardson settled in Missouri after they married. So, the Maupin offsprings of Frank and Laura would have been of Native American descent, as well as French.

Gabriel 'the French Huguenot' Maupin, Sr.
Per Mary Smith
The Sinking Ship

Tradition has preserved an interesting story of Gabriel Maupin's trip to America, which is generally related in any account of the Maupin family. We are told that he was a very religious, devout person. On the trip to America very terrific storm arose which soon caused a leak in the ship. Those aboard remembered that Maupin was a devout Christian and they called on him to pray for Divine intercession to stop the leak and save the ship and those aboard. He offered up a very sincere prayer which apparently had results, because the ship stopped sinking. Upon reaching land it was found that the leak had been caused by a hole in the side of the ship and that a large fish had become stuck in the hole, effectively plugging it.

Market Square Tavern Historical Report, Block 12 Building 13 Lot 12
Originally entitled: "The Market Square Tavern"
Helen Bullock and H. D. Farish, 1932 & 1940

[photocopy of hand-written note]

Thomas Craig announced in 1767 that he had a license and meant to keep a tavern here. The size of the house and stable certainly indicates his keeping a tavern before Gabriel Maupin took it over. illegible M.E.M. April 3, 1944

VA Gazette, Purdie & Dixon, Feb. 12, 1767
(Ibid., Book V - Deeds - pp. 545-548.)
Lyon was designated a barber and a merchant in the court records. (York County Records, Book V - Deeds - pp. 445-448; Book 6 - Deeds - p. 265.) The property then came into the possession of Thomas Craig, a tailor (Ibid., Book 6 - Deeds - pp. 382-383), who opened a public house. (Rind's Virginia Gazette, Feb. 19, 1767.) There seems to be no definite evidence that Craig enlarged the building. In 1771, Gabriel Maupin having acquired the tavern and, having enlarged it, announced "the best Entertainment and Accommodations." In addition to his duties as tavernkeeper, he operated a business in saddlery and harness making. (Purdie & Dixon, Virginia Gazette, Sept. 26, 1771.) He also served as keeper of the Powder Magazine nearby. (Journals of the Council of the State of Virginia, Vol. I, p. 137.)
The only record of which we know that might have been interpreted to imply that Gabriel Maupin repaired arms is the following:

The Lieutenant Governor is advised to order the Keeper of the Magazine [Maupin] forthwith to cause all the Arms under his care which are unfit for use, to be immediately sorted & set apart for service, and to cause those which are out of Order to be repaired without Dealy --…
… and the Treasury to Order a Captains Guard immediately to attend & assist ye Keeper of Ye Magazine, & the Armourers in assorting & repairing the Arms & Accoutrements for Action --… (Ibid., p. 465.)
In 1775, he became one of the early devotees of a vogue which prevailed after the Revolution by christening his son George Washington Maupin. (Dixon and Hunter, Virginia Gazette, October 7, 1775.) Maupin's tavern survived the depression which followed the Revolution and the removal of the seat of government. (Humphrey Harwood's Ledger - B-1.) The date of sale to Deneufville cannot be established as 1802. In 1807 a property transfer of 1 ½ lots to Deneufville via Maupin was noted, (Williamsburg Land Tax, Virginia State Library Archives), and it may have been this property. At any rate, it was definitely in the possession of Peter Rob Deneufville in 1809. (Insurance Policy Book, p. 22). Peter Robert Deneufville is believed to have come to Virginia at the time of Lafayette's second visit. (William and Mary Quarterly, 1st Series, Vol. VI, p. 59.) We have been unable to find direct evidence that this house was damaged by fire in 1842, and was repaired. Tax records indicate, however, that Peter Rob Deneufville's estate was in possession of 2 lots in 1840 and 1843 as follows:
August 30, 1770. - To be SOLD at Public AUCTION on Monday the 10th of September, on the premises,

The dwelling-house at present occupied by the subscriber, which is very well-calculated for public business, being in the Center of the City, and every convenience to it for a tavern. There are fine cellars, and exceeding good stable for thirty horses, with a large fodder loft, a very good kitchen with room adjoining, a large and strong smoke house, at one end of it a place for people to sleep in, an excellent well of water, and a good garden. There is likewise a very good shop on the main street, which might be converted into three or four lodging rooms; and there is a cellar under it. The house might be made much larger, at a very trifling expense, by taking in a store at one end of it, which rents for 20£ a year. Upon paying 100 £ in October next, the purchaser will have two years credit for the remainder. At the same time will be sold sundry household and kitchen furniture particularly a very good number of beds and bedding, on credit, until April, for all sums above 5£ the purchasers giving bond and security.

The above sale being made in consequence of my resolution immediately to discontinues tavern keeping, and to have my affairs settled, I desire every person who is indebted to me to make payment in October ensuing, as, after that time, all accounts due me a lawyer will have the collecting of.

The house was purchased by Gabriel Maupin, one of Williamsburg's well known tavern keepers. He was the son of Gabriel Maupin, the French Huguenot, who came to Virginia in 1704 with his wife and three children. Young Gabriel Maupin's sister, Marie, married Alexander Craig, brother of the Thomas who sold the tavern.
As was customary, the new keeper advertised the opening of his tavern in the gazette:

September 26, 1771. - As I have purchased the House in the Market Square lately occupied by Mr. Thomas Craig, to which I am making considerable Additions and Improvements for the Purpose of KEEPING TAVERN, this is to acquaint my FRIENDS, and the Publick in General, that the Hosue will be ready for their reception by the beginning of the ensuing General Court, where they may depend upon Meeting with the best Entertainment and Accommodations from
Their humble servant,

My shop will likewise be moved to the Above Place, where the SADDLERY and HARNESS MAKING business will be carried on in all its Branches. Those who please to employ me may be asured of being furnished with neat and substantial Work at short Notice, and on reasonable terms.

In 1773 Maupin acted as the agent for Bartholmew Le Petit, who came from Norfolk to establish a school for teaching French, "that polite and agreeable Language so universally courted in the most genteel companies, in its greatest purity, attended with its elegancies of Pronunciation…"

Maupin, during the Revolution, was an ardent patriot; he served as keeper of the Magazine on the Market Square, and in October 1775, when his son was born he was baptized George Washington Maupin.

Being keeper of a tavern during the Revolutionary War was a trying business. The numerous soldiers quartered in the town and in nearby camps frequently impressed the horses in the tavern pastures. Repeatedly Maupin advertised for horses "strayed or stolen" from his pasture, for a "light bay mare", "a likely bald-faced sorrel horse", "a large dark brown horse", and a "middle-sized dark brown horse", until January 27, 1776 found his patience so exhausted that he announced, "I will not be answerable for any Horses that may get away for the future."

Maupin's tavern survived the bad times brought by the Revolution and the removal of the capital to Richmond, for in 1792 and 1793 he had Humphrey Harwood make improvements and repairs to it. (2) This included whitewashing thirteen rooms upstairs, whitewashing passageways and stairways, and mending sinks and plaster.

He kept tavern until about 1802, selling his lease and buildings to Peter Rob Deneufville, another French-American, who came to Williamsburg with Lafayette at the time of his second visit. This family had been loyal to the American cause, being warm friends and near relatives of the Deneufville whom William Lee knew at the Hague. Peter Robert Deneufville married Miss Julia Travis, but died without issue in 1809.

His brother, John Augustine Deneufville married Henrietta Fayette Bellet, sister of Philip J. Barziza's wife. They had three children. One of these children, Miss Emma Lou Barlow, still lives in Williamsburg, not far from the tavern of her patriotic ancestor, and cherishes a badge given to her grandmother by Lafayete during his visit to Williamsburg in 1824.

Peter Robert Deneufville insured his "dwelling house, storehouse, kitchen and counting house" in 1809. In this insurance policy is a plat of all the other outbuldings on the lot, and a record of the tavern itself.

This has proved of great value, for in 1842 a disastrous fire destroyed a block of Williamsburg's fine old buildings, and damaged the tavern in the Market Square so badly that it was practically rebuilt, later, and only so cmuch of the old material was used as had escaped the flames.

The famous Raleigh Tavern burned in 1859, and its name and fame were perpetuated by naming the rebuilt Market Square tavern the Raleigh Hotel.

Both stand today as they stood in the day of Southall and Maupin, so each is known by its own name; not even fire being able to destroy the record of the history and architecture of these taverns. They stand today, replicas of the old Raleigh and the Market Square tavern.

Williamsburg, Va.
September 15, 1930.

The Virginia Gazette (Miss Mary F. Goodwin's Notes, Book II), publishes the following advertisement which we believe refers to a house on the site of the present Raleigh Hotel:

September 26, 1771 - Gabriel Maupin has lately purchased the house in Market Square lately occupied by Thomas Craig, and is making considerable additions and improvements for the purpose of keeping a Tavern. He will move his shop also to the house, and continue to make saddles and harness.
In Policy No. 970, Revaluation of Policy No. 109, Gabriel Maupin insures the following buildings, then owned by Peter Rob. Deneufville, in the Mutual Assurance Society, under the date of September 23, 1809:

Policy No. 970 - Revaluation of No. 109.
Assured: Gabriel Maupin September 23, 1809-
Said buildings that are now owned by Peter Rob. Deneufville and are now occupied by Peter Rob. Deneufville, and are Situated South of the Main Street, East of the Courthouse Square, North of Francis Street and West of the Cross street dividing Lightfoot lot. County of James City.

Kitchen " " 500 - 29' x 18' - wood
Counting House " " 500 - 16' x 24' - wood

A photostat of this policy, with a rough sketch of the location of the buildings is in the Department of Research and Record.

Mr. Charles, in his Recollections of Williamsburg, says the following in regard to the Raleigh Hotel:

Where the "Raleigh Hotel" now stands, there was an old, very old frame building which was used before the War as a dwelling and after the War as a hotel. The present hostelry was built not many years ago and much of the material in the old house was used in the present structure.

The old house was built on brick work, about six feet above the street, with a single porch and steps up to it. The house next to it, on the west was very like the one now occupied by "Dane & Spencer" as a real estate office…

RE: Marie Hersant Maupin
Marie died in 1748 and was buried in Bruton Parish Church graveyard, according to the compilation of the church records: Chapplear, Nancy, Bruton and Middleton Parishes, James City City Co., VA: Parish Register 1662-1797, (Washington, D.C., 1966) p. 39.

I don't know where he is buried but I will send you my notes on the both of them in another message. If you find where he is buried, please let me know. My guess would be with his wife or one of his children.
