John Marlo Culpepper (Apocryphal)1

Male, #62576, (10 May 1633 - )
Name-AltSpell This surname is sometimes spelled Culpeper. 
Name Variation He was also known as John Harlow Culpepper (Fictional). 
Birth*10 May 1633 He was born on 10 May 1633. 
Birth of Son20 Nov 1660 His son Thomas Fairfax Culpepper (Apocryphal) was born on 20 Nov 1660. 
Research note* One Version of the "Apocryphal Culpepper" Genealogy: John Marlo Culpeper was born in England 10 May 1633. Height 6 feet‚ 2 inches; weight 184 lbs; color of eyes blue. Special marks of identification: right eye slightly smaller‚ large mole on body.
Culpepper Connections Commentary: No evidence has ever been found for John Culpepper’s middle name of Marlo, and middle names, in general, were not common until about 100 years later. According to Fairfax Harrison, The Proprietors of the Northern Neck "He was baptised in Hollingbourne‚ April 4‚ 1633‚ as ’John‚ sonne of Thomas Culpeper‚ esq.’" Estate records (Albemarle Co.‚ NC 4 Apr 1797) list the name as "Jno. Culpepper." See: John Culpeper son of Thomas & Katherine

Apocryphal :
Was appointed General Surveyor of the Carolinas under Charles II.
Culpepper Connections: John Culpeper was appointed Surveyor General by the Lords Proprietors in 1671.

Apocryphal: It was he who laid out the city of Charles Town‚ afterward called Charleston. His work as Surveyor took him to all parts of Carolina.
Culpepper Connections: Although he was noted in Virginia and North Carolina land records and in New England shipping records‚ the only surveying activity noted was in Charleston‚ SC.

Apocryphal: His democratic spirit won for him the love and confidence of the people‚ which made him the Master Spirit in the insurrection that took away the power of the self-appointed officiary of the Carolina Colonies and placed in authority officers elected by the people.
Culpepper Connections: This is obviously a reference to the John Culpeper associated with Culpeper’s Rebellion in 1677. This John, variously called "John Culpeper of Albemarle" and "John Culpeper the Rebel" was born circa 1644 and had no male descendants. See: John Culpeper of Albemarle NC

Apocryphal: Because of this‚ he was relieved of his official position as General Surveyor and the establisher of bounds to the different grants issued by the crown.
Culpepper Connections: According to Fairfax Harrison‚ John Culpeper fled from South Carolina. Some sources suggest a food shortage and others suggest that‚ his sister‚ Frances‚ and brother-in-law‚ Sir William Berkeley‚ the Governor of Virginia‚ were involved in a land deal in Albemarle‚ NC which necessitated John Culpeper’s rapid removal. As noted above‚ Bacon’s Rebellion against Gov. Berkeley took place in 1676 and one wonders if this was in some way connected with John Culpeper’s hasty move north. In any event‚ by July 1677‚ John Culpeper was residing in Albemarle‚ NC‚ probably on land owned by his brother-in-law‚ Sir William Berkeley. In December 1677‚ John allegedly usurped the government from a Collector of the King’s Customs named Miller who was a temporary Deputy Governor. In fact‚ although associated with one of the factions in the rebellion‚ John Culpepper was away from the colony in the months preceding the revolt and arrived back only shortly before it took place. He was directed by the group to be the Custom’s Collector in the place of Miller‚ and for this‚ he went on trial in England. 

Apocryphal: Was arrested‚ taken back to England‚ there tried for treason‚ but was cleared of the charge. Where upon the King reinstated him‚ and returned him to his work.
Culpepper Connections: He went voluntarily. He was not arrested until he tried to return to Albemarle. For more factual detail on Culpeper's Rebellion and John's role within it, see William Smith's Master's thesis: Culpeper's Rebellion: New Data and Old Problems. No account of his subsequent career has been found.

Apocryphal: It was on 8 Apr 1655 that he married Ruth Jane Peck--born 23 Oct 1638‚ died 3 May 1684.
Culpepper Connections: There is no record of this marriage. According to p. 24 of A Journal of the Grand Council of S. C.‚ John Culpeper’s wife’s name was Judith. John Culpeper later married Sarah Mayo.

Apocryphal: To this union four children were born‚ viz.‚
     1. Annie Culpepper‚ who married S. P. Sumner and by whom six children were born‚ there being four boys and two girls;
     2. MattieCulpepper‚ who never married;
     3. Thomas Fairfax Culpepper (who has a link as a son on this page)
     4. Charles B. Culpepper‚ who never married‚ is thought to have perished at sea.
Culpepper Connections: The unnamed "orphans of Jno. Culpeper" were noted in surviving estate records (The Colonial Records of North Carolina, Second Series, Vol. III: North Carolina Higher Court Records, 1697-1701, Raleigh, NC: North Carolina Division of Archives and History, Historical Publications Section, 1971, p. 5) but only one daughter‚ Sarah Culpeper‚ has ever been identified because she was listed as a step-daughter in the estate papers of Sarah (Mayo) Culpeper’s husband‚ Patrick Henley. There is no record of a marriage between an Annie Culpeper and S. P. Sumner.

Apocryphal: John Marlo Culpeper was a first cousin to Lord Culpeper who was Gov. of VA for awhile‚ whose rule was anything but pleasing both to the Virginia Colony and to his King.
Culpepper Connections: John Culpeper (the Carolina Rebel) was a second cousin to Thomas, 2nd Lord Culpeper. See: Thomas Lord Culpeper 2nd Baron of Thoresway

Apocryphal: All, however, loved John Marlo‚ and in old age he was called father by the people of Charleston. He lived 60 years to the very day and almost the hour‚ dying 10 May 1693‚ in the home of his daughter‚ Mrs. Sumner.
Culpepper Connections: Fairfax Harrison noted "no final record of this John Culpeper has come to light" but‚ as noted above‚ John’s wife‚ Sarah‚ married Patrick Henley and they are noted in 24 Feb 1695 executing "the last will & testament of John Culpeper late of Pascotank [NC]‚ Gent. dec’d" North Carolina History and Genealogical Register, p. 259. There is no evidence that Mrs. Sumner was John’s daughter or that John died in her home.2,3,4

  1. This individual is fictitious. All of the above genealogical and historical claims stem
    from a fascinating version of early American Culpepper genealogy that started circulating among Culpepper family members in the early 1900's, perhaps even earlier. Unfortunately, bits and pieces from this fictional genealogy are now widely diseminated on the Internet.
         It contained an account of a brave patriot overthrowing a tyrant, becoming the Governor of Virginia, and being called the father of Charleston.
         There was a farm boy who went to England to be educated at Oxford, and in a story befitting a book of fairy tales, he finds and marries his childhood sweetheart.
         One Culpepper marries a beautiful Indian half-breed, faithfully works as overseer on a plantation that once belonged to his ancestors, and his sons eventually receive a huge land grant as recompense for the family plantation having been stolen.
         Another becomes a highly successful orator/preacher winning many souls to Christ.
         A Culpepper daughter marries into the family of a famous American patriot. In fact, virtually all of the Culpepper daughters in this story marry quite well.
         One reprobate son was included for good measure. A whiskey maker, he changes his surname to Pepper to shield his pious mother from disgrace.
         Also, each of the major characters was described in extraordinarily precise physical detail.

    Human nature makes any reader want to embrace this detailed and rich genealogical account as the true story of his or her ancestors. And for several generations, this genealogy has been accepted by many as the gospel, and passed along to the next.
         However, modern day researchers attempting to verify the facts encounter many difficulties. Most of the assertions are without proof, but many of them should be provable if they were true. And some of the claims are clearly at odds with the historical record.

Thomas Fairfax Culpepper (Apocryphal)1

Male, #62577, (20 Nov 1660 - )
Father*John Marlo Culpepper (Apocryphal) (10 May 1633 - )
Name-AltSpell This surname is sometimes spelled Culpeper. 
Birth*20 Nov 1660 He was born on 20 Nov 1660. 
Birth of Son3 Jul 1692 His son Sam Low Culpepper (Apocryphal) was born on 3 Jul 1692. 
Birth of Son3 Jul 1692 His son John Marlo Culpepper II (Apocryphal) was born on 3 Jul 1692. 
Research note*1999 One Version of the "Apocryphal Culpepper" Genealogy: Thomas Fairfax Culpeper was born in Northern Carolina‚ 20 Nov 1660. Height 5 feet 8 inches; weight 170 lbs; color of eyes gray. Special marks of identification: a large mole on body‚ a deep scar on chin.
Culpepper Connections Commentary: At this date‚ the colony did not exist. The alleged father of Thomas‚ John Culpeper‚ the "Carolina Rebel‚" became associated with this area circa 1677‚ probably because his sister‚ Frances‚ and brother-in-law‚ Gov. Berkeley of Virginia‚ had an interest in the property. Or possibly he came there as a result of Bacon’s Rebellion against Gov. Berkeley in 1676.

Apocryphal :
Was sent to Oxford‚ England‚ to college‚ where he graduated with the degree of Bachelor of Arts in May 1681.
Culpepper Connections: A comprehensive list of Oxford graduates during 1500-1866 shows no Thomas Culpeper or Colepeper receiving a degree at this time. Sir Thomas Colepeper, baronet, son of Richard Colepeper of Preston Hall, Kent, did matriculate 15 Jun 1672 at age 15, but is not reported to have received a degree.

Apocryphal: It was on 1 Jun 1681‚ just a few days after graduation‚ that he married Sarah Ray--born 18 Nov 1662‚ died 2 Dec 1724--with whom he had been in love since he was a boy of 12 years‚ at which time he had visited his maternal grandparents living near Portsmouth‚ England. It was while playing along the coast they had met and together had gathered shells. One day Sarah found a tiny mussel shell and dividing it‚ she gave to Thomas a half and kept the other half herself. Thomas returned to the colony but no one there was able either to get the shell or learn its secret. When in his last year at college they had again met‚ each demanded to see the other half. One half was found to be on a gold chain worn about the neck of Sarah‚ the other half in the pocket of Thomas. The care taken of the bits of shell told to each other more of the story of love‚ than was possible in any other way. It was not a hard task to get the consent of parents‚ so the alliance dreamed of in childhood became a reality later on. If providence ever had a hand in the affairs of love‚ surely in this case. Their life was one sweet communion‚ and when they came to the end of life here‚ neither felt like taking the longest of pilgrimages without the other. So they departed this life together and are united now in the beyond‚ if the wish of either heart was fulfilled.
Culpepper Connections: No record of this marriage has been found.

Apocryphal: Thomas after marriage returned to America‚ taught school‚ practiced law‚ and later became private secretary to Lord Culpeper‚ Gov. of VA‚ and his father’s first cousin and for whom he was named.
Culpepper Connections: According to Fairfax Harrison, "Capt. Alexander Culpeper" was secretary to Thomas, second Lord Culpeper. Alexander was the brother of John Culpeper, the "Carolina Rebel" and of Frances, the wife of Sir William Berkeley, Governor of Virginia. Although Alexander was named Surveyor General of Virginia in 1671, he apparently remained in England and, in 1691, he willed the sixth part of the Northern Neck of Virginia which he had inherited, to the widow of Thomas, second Lord Culpeper.
     In 1683‚ the Governor was removed from his position by the King for leaving the colony without permission. The alleged Thomas Fairfax Culpepper was supposed to have graduated from Oxford only two years earlier.
     John Culpeper‚ the "Carolina Rebel"‚ and alleged father of Thomas Fairfax Culpepper‚ was a second cousin of Thomas‚ second Lord Culpeper.

Apocryphal: Was the father of two children--twin boys‚
     1. Sam Low Culpepper (who has a link as a son on this page)
     2. John Marlo Culpepper‚ who changed his name to John Marlo Pepper‚ possibly due to the fact that he became engaged in the manufactory of whiskey and desired to shield his mother‚ a very pious woman‚ from the disgrace.
Culpepper Connections: No records have ever been found with the names of Sam Low Culpeper, John Marlo Culpeper, or John Marlo Pepper.

Apocryphal: Thomas died in Charleston‚ SC‚ 2 Dec 1724.
Culpepper Connections: No will or probate record has been found in South Carolina‚ nor has any record been found showing that he ever lived there. No other record of Thomas Fairfax Culpeper has ever been found‚ either in America‚ or in England.2,3,4

Male, #62578, (3 Jul 1692 - )
Father*Thomas Fairfax Culpepper (Apocryphal) (20 Nov 1660 - )
Multiple Birth* Sam was born a twin. 
Name-AltSpell This surname is sometimes spelled Culpeper. 
Birth*3 Jul 1692 He was born on 3 Jul 1692. 
Birth of Son8 Dec 1739 His son Charles Marion Culpepper (Apocryphal) was born on 8 Dec 1739 at Culpeper Co., Virginia
Birth of Son4 Jan 1742 His son Alfred Norman Culpepper (Apocryphal) was born on 4 Jan 1742 at Culpeper Co., Virginia
Research note*1999 One Version of the "Apocryphal Culpepper" Genealogy: Sam Low was born in Virginia‚ 3 Jul 1692, as a twin brother of John Marlo Culpepper. Changed the spelling of his name from two p’s to three. Height 6 feet; weight 160 lbs; color of eye dark blue. Special marks of identification: right eye slightly smaller‚ left-handed‚ hair very red.
Culpepper Connections Commentary: John Culpepper‚ an alleged grandson‚ signed his name "John Culpeper" on an estate record in 1807 but he signed "John Culpepper" on a letter in 1853. The name was spelled several different ways in English and American records because spelling standards had not yet been established and people spelled words‚ including names‚ the way they sounded.

Apocryphal: Became overseer and manager of that part of the Lord Thomas Fairfax estate that came to him by his wife Catherine Culpeper‚ the only daughter of Lord Thomas Culpeper.
Culpepper Connections:
Lord Fairfax? see notes below about husband and son of Catherine. There is no evidence that a Sam Low Culpepper ever managed this property.

Apocryphal: Sam Low was married 19 Apr 1736‚ to Ruth Waters‚ a half-breed Indian girl of great beauty. She was born 29 Aug 1719‚ and died 1 Jan 1779.
Culpepper Connections: There is no record of this marriage.

Apocryphal: To this union eleven children were born‚ two only living to be grown;
     1. Charles Marion Culpepper (who has a link as a son on this page)
     2. Alfred Norman Culpepper Culpepper—born 4 Jan 1742. Became a lawyer and later moved into Maine--there married and raised a family of five boys and three girls‚ all living to be grown and married. When Alfred was last seen in VA‚ he told his brother Charles that he had thirty-eight grandchildren and that twenty were boys that would bear the family name. When he and his brother came into the VA estate‚ he--Alfred--was too old to come back and look after his share‚ so sold his part to W. P. Jones‚ the son-in-law of his brother Charles. Since then‚ all trace of him and his has been lost.
Culpepper Connections: Although shipping records link the Culpeper name to the New England area‚ no record of the family has been found in Maine or New Hampshire. Prior to 1820, Maine was part of New Hampshire.
     Also, no record of the sale of a share of the VA estate to W. P. Jones has ever been found.

Apocryphal: Sam Low managed this estate for nearly forty years and died Oct 21 1763‚ without knowing that his boys would come into possession of it in their old age.
Culpepper Connections: No record of Sam Low Culpepper has ever been found in any record‚ in Virginia‚ or elsewhere.2,3

Height 5 feet 7 inches; weight 120 lbs; color of eyes blue; complexion dark; hair very black. Special marks of identification: was left-handed; large mole on body; a double thumb on right hand.

Culpepper Connections: Charles Marion Culpepper is not mentioned in Lee family genealogies and no record of this marriage has been found.

Apocryphal: To this union four children were born:
     1. John William Culpepper
     Culpepper Connections: This is supposed to be John Culpepper, husband of Nancy Gillespie‚ and the subject of considerable research by Lew Griffin (See John Culpepper of Randolph Co., AL) . A grandson‚ Joseph Richard Culpepper‚ after reading this history wrote to his father‚ Rev. Lewis Peek Culpepper‚ a son of John Culpepper‚ and then to his cousin‚ Rev. George Bright Culpepper‚ who also had a copy of the history: "I wrote to Father asking him to give me all the information he could relative to his father‚ grandfather‚ etc. He knows nothing farther back than his grandfather who was John instead of Charles Marion…"

     Culpepper Connections: There is no record of this marriage. Nor does this family appear in the 1800 census of Tennessee‚ or in any subsequent census records.

     3. Sarah Jane Culpepper—born 29 Aug 1779. Married on 29 Jun 1803 to Dr. Lovik Pierce‚ the father of Bishop Pierce. There were six children‚ three boys and three girls. All lived and married and raised large families.
     Culpepper Connections: According to the North Carolina Historical and Genealogical Register, Vol. 1, No. 4 (Oct. 1900), Rev. Lovick Pierce, D.D., of Georgia was the son of Philip Pierce and Lydia Culpepper and he was the father of Bishop George F. Pierce of the Methodist Episcopal Church South. According to The Pierces and Their Posterity compiled by Clara Waldron Pierce, James Pierce McClurkin and Graham L.

     4. Sally Ann Culpepper—born 20 Nov 1780‚ married Walter P. Jones‚ a rich planter of true American stock. There were eight children‚ six boys and two girls.
     Culpepper Connections: Sally is a nickname for Sarah‚ so the two girls had the same first name. No record of this marriage has ever been found.

Apocryphal: When the Fairfax estate in Virginia‚ which came to him by his wife Catherine, was confiscated in the year 1780‚ Charles Marion and his brother Alfred laid claim to that portion of the estate which their father Sam Low had been manager of‚ and where all his children were born and raised.

Thomas‚ fifth Lord Fairfax died in 1710 and his wife‚ Catherine‚ died in 1719. The land passed to their son‚ Thomas‚ sixth Lord Fairfax and, on his death in 1781‚ the land passed to his brother‚ Robert‚ seventh Lord Fairfax with a sixth interest to his nephew‚ Denney Martin. They owned the land in 1786 when the Virginia Assembly abolished the proprietorship. 

Apocryphal: They were deeded by the Virginia Council ten thousand acres of land‚ the greater part lying in Culpeper Co., VA.
Culpepper Connections: As noted above‚ no Culpeper/Culpepper appears in marriage‚ land‚ or probate records of Culpeper Co.‚ VA.

Apocryphal: It was on 11 Feb 1794 that he died‚ leaving his children not only riches in land‚ but the goodly heritage of a Godly life.
Culpepper Connections: No mention of Charles Marion Culpeper has ever been found in any record‚ in Virginia‚ or elsewhere.2,3
