Humphrey Hudgins & Louisa Foster

Sally’s great-great-great-great Grandparents:

Humphrey Hudgins 1757 – 1822/3 | parents
& 1776 Louisa Foster 1756 – 1820/22 | parents
of Gloucester Co VA
& ca 1783 Gates County, North Carolina


Humphrey Hudgins and Louisa Foster were married 9 Feb 1776 in Kingston Parish, Gloucester County, Virginia.

Humphrey Hudgins came to Gates County, NC around 1784 or 1783 from Gloucester County, VA. Humphrey‘s birth is in Kingston Parish Records August 7, 1757, son of Humphrey Deggs Hudgins 1735 Р1796 and wife Joanna. He died between 23 Dec 1822 & Feb Ct 1823.
Louisa Foster was born Nov. 2, 1756, daughter of John Foster Jr 1728-1784 & Rosanna, who had married in 1749. Louisa died sometime after the census of 1820 and before Humphrey wrote his will on the 23 Dec 1822.
In “Wheeler’s Sketches of North Carolina” we find that Humphrey Hudgins in 1795 served in the House of Commons.
and again in 1797 serving continuously through 1812;
again in 1815, 1816 & 1817;
in 1819, he was the Senator from Gates Co.

I am placing Humphrey D Hudgins as a son “by the preponderance of evidence” that indicates that is who he is.

Children of Humphrey Hudgins Jr and Louisa Foster: Gates Co, NC
The birth of Humphrey Hudgins, Jr and his marriage to Louisa Foster and the birth of their child Rose are in the Kingston Parish Register.

3. Humphrey Hudgins 17 Dec 1820 – 12 March 1898 Chappell Hill,
Washington County, TX.

(b. abt 1825 according to 1850 census, but this would make him a twin (though not impossible) and leave a gap in the otherwise consistent interval between births. This estimated birth year is likely incorrect.) I believe this to be “Chappell Hill” Humphrey Hudgins, the nephew of Joel Hudgins. “Chappell Hill” Humphrey Hudgins’ birthdate is cited in HUDGINS: Virginia to Texas by Edgar H. Hudgins, page 178, as 17 Dec 1820 — a date which would fit nicely here. Other evidence supports this being “Chappell Hill” Humprey Hudgins — more later. Humphrey Hudgins was twice married, but had no children –
4. Rosinna/Rosanna Hudgins ca 1822 – possibly died before 1860

b. Josiah Small ca 1849 Perquimans County NC – ?

c. Benjamin Small ca 1855
according to 1850 census in Edenton, Chowan County, NC. This is most likely the “nephew” of “Chappell Hill” Humphrey Hudgins according to the 1880 census of Washington County TX; and the “Ben Small” mentioned in HUDGINS: Virginia to Texas by Edgar H. Hudgins, page
