Family Research – English, Scottish and Irish Genealogy


Searching for the Origin of Nethery. Part 2

Note: another researcher found that James Nethery was a landholder in both 1762 and 1763, in East Marlborough Township. I did not find this record, but it may be true.

Family of Neathermarks in County, obviously German, with names of Conrad, Christian.

In the Delaware court and tax records there were no Nethery recorded, so they must have come to New Castle just to marry in the Old Swede Church.

William and Elizabeth Holland are of Anne Arundel County MD. William is the son of Francis Holland, a Puritan from Virginia who settled in Calvert County MD. William died about 1732, estate went to son Thomas Holland of Calvert County MD. The Holland family was early in the colony, witness to a Quaker wedding in 1685.

James Neadre witnessed will of Thomas Lingan, Calvert County MD 20 August 1722, probably above James. Maryland Calendar of Wills, p. 108.

There is a David Nevers in the Will Book of St. Mary’s County Maryland 10 December 1750 volume 1:245. Early settlers of Maryland are Robert, John and Richard Netherton. John is noted as early as 1650, Richard as early as 1666. Henry Netherton married Sarah Tucker in 1709. Sarah the daughter of John Tuicker in Westmoreland Wills and Deeds Liber 5, folio181. I did not feel that these are variants of Nethery, but did not want to skim over any possibilities.

The surnames of Nevill, Nevitt, Neverson, Nevins, Nevett, Ne(a)therland are listed here. Names also given as Nethery, Netherway, Nithery.

Marshall Neathery states that by oral tradition this is supposedly the father of old Thomas Nethery (1719 – 1798) of Mecklenburg County Virginia, however, he qualifies there is no proof of this relationship.

There was a serious problem with illness in the middle Atlantic colonies of Maryland and Virginia. With the heat, humidity, swamps, and general health conditions, perhaps as many as 50 percent of the immigrants succumbed to disease. It is that the fate of the Robert and James above and the William below?

William Netherby – 1673 in New Kent County Virginia

{1654 New Kent County was taken from York County Virginia; New Kent County no longer exists.} Robert Bagby and William Hernden have 1800 acres in New Kent County, Virginia on the northeast side of Mattopony River, about 40 paces above an Indian Weire, adjoining Thomas Hall and John Pigg, 18 February 1673. Paid for transportation of 36 persons on 18 February 1673, including William Netherby.

*Thomas Nethery (1719 – 1798) of Mecklenburg County Virginia in 1767

Mecklenburg County is on the North Carolina border with neighboring counties of Brunswick, Lunenburg, Charlotte, Halifax – it is probable that the Thomas of Lunenburg and of Mecklenburg are exactly the same person and that he stayed in the very same place and that the county borders were changed while he was living there.

1763 Thomas Nethery appears in County Court records as a hand to work on the road from Joseph Greer’s to Thomas Erskins Lunenburg County Court Order Book 9 p. 159. 1764 Thomas Nethery is a witness to Deed dated 16 July 1764 Lunenburg Deed Book 10, p. 64 – 65. Interestingly, this land deed describes 200 acres on Pigg River in Halifax County Virginia. Halifax County is a neighboring County of Mecklenburg County Virginia. You will note that the William Netherby of New Kent County was on land adjoining John Pigg in 1673. Could this William be an ancestor of Old Thomas?

Land in northwestern Mecklenburg County near the Meherrin River and ” on both sides of Cattail Branch.” Near the head of Allen’s Creek and on the north side of Dry Creek. The land is very close to the Lunenburg County Virginia line, actually the Meherrin River forms the boundary between Mecklenburg and Lunenburg Counties.

After 1800, the Neathery family spread out rapidly and were known to have been in Kentucky by 1820, Alabama by 1825, Arkaknsas by 1837, Mississippi and Texas by 1840 and California by 1860. Marilyn Neathery McCluen

Spelling of the name:

“Nethery is a name used only in a very tiny area and is not known widely in either Ireland or Scotland. I’ve concluded that it came into use around the time of the Plantation and was used to explain where people had come from. Sort of like “Tex” as a name in California for someone who had come from Texas. Of course no one in Texas would use that name. I’ve also concluded that the Hamiltons, one of the most important British families, keep popping up wherever there are Netherys. The Hamiltons are closely associated with the Grahams and are one of the most distinguished families in Lowland Scotland and were among the major setlers in the Plantation. My great grandfather farmed land held by the Duke of Abercorn, James Hamilton.” John Nethery of Reston, VA

The name in the United States is usually spelled Nethery or Neathery. I note that Old Thomas Nethery of Mecklenburg county VA name is spelled “Nethery” yet many of his descendents spell it “Neathery”. I ask Marshall Neathery why he spelled his name with an “a”. He states that he has seen Old Thomas’ name spelled “Neathery” in a public record, as written by a clerk. He has also seen it spelled Netherly, Nethely, Netherry, Netherey, and Netherlee. Marshall’s father spelled the name without the “a” but a school teacher told his mother that the name was correctly spelled “Neathery” and taught his sister and him to spell it that way. It was never a thing of contention in his family, even though his father continued to spell it “Nethery”.

In the estate records of Robert Nethery of Wilkes/Burke County NC 1805, his sons William and Samuel were appointed administrators to settle Robert’s estate, they both signed their names as NEATHERY. William was educated, a school teacher and fine penman. He is the first to use that spelling and probably taught his brothers to write.

“When I first started in Neathery research I went to New Port News, VA to see a lady name ‘Aunt’ Fronie Bradley, a descendent of old Tom. The first thing she told me was, ‘1 know you are kin to me for you spell your name with an A. My father told me we were no kin to any of those people who did not have an A in their names but spelled it Nethery'” Marilyn Neathery McCluen of Roane Co TN



I have endeavored to cite the spellings of the names as I found them on that record throughout this report. I found terrible spelling in the Irish records, sometimes Graham doesn’t even look like Graham. You will note in this report that each time we saw the town Magheraculmoney, it was spelled differently! As an example of the lack of standardized spelling in those early days, I have noted the many ways of spelling Nethery in one deed of Thomas Nethery.

We have noticed recently that Esk and Mote are surnames [there are Grahams of Esk and Grahams of Mote as well as Grahams of Netherby], so, likewise the surname Nethery is a place name.

The result of this research shows that we still are not able to ascertain the father of Old Thomas Nethery. There is a slight possibility that he could be the Thomas in the Chester County PA records of the 1758 tax list. He could also be a descendent of the Robed Nethery 1667 or James Nethery 1716 to the Colony of Maryland. Further research needs to be undertaken of the William Netherby of New Kent County VA with emphasis on the counties of Halifax and Brunswick VA. Also records in Georgia might be checked for early Nethery immigrants in the 170Os.

New materials and resources are brought to our attention almost on a daily basis. Even though Irish records were burned and many American records have been destroyed, there is usually another public record that will refer to the same item. Never give up hope but stay attuned to what is being discovered in the local area of your ancestor.

After this additional research in areas of Ireland, England and Scotland, I believe that all with the surname of Nethery descend from Walter Graham of Netherby, the Chief of the family in 1596. Walter descends from the second son of Malise Graham, the 1st Earl of Menteith, whose seat was located in the Highlands between Stirling and Loch Lomond. The title, Earl of Menteith, was derived from the Stuart family by his mother, Euphema, the granddaughter of King Robert II. At the time that the family of Grahams were exported to Ireland, most did not use a surname as we do today, they were Richard of Cannoble, William of Langfield, and James of Netherby. With all of the troubles in Ireland, and the desire to return to Scotland or the border areas in England, they just became James Netherby, and the Graham was forgotten. Dr. Philip D. Smith has shown how the name in the Celtic dialect changes from Netherby to Nethery, and that his recommendation is that the Nethery family wear the Graham tadan.

The thought comes to mind that perhaps we should not think of Nethery as a SEPT of Clan Graham. but that Nethery IS Graham.
