John Lanier, Sr.

 

 

Born: Abt. Oct 1631, Lewisham, ENGLAND
Died:  1???

 
                                         
John Lanier, Sr. was born about 1631 in Lewisham, England.  He was the son of Clement Lanier and Hannah Collet.
 
John married Lucreece (Unknown) in England before he moved to the United States and settled in Virginia.  He and Lucreece lived in Charles City County on the south side of the James River.
 
 
Children of John Lanier, Sr. and Lucreece (Unknown)
Name Date of Birth Date of Death Spouse
John Lanier, Jr. Abt. 1655 1719 (1) (Unknown)
(2) Mrs. Sarah Edmunds
Katherine Lanier   1665  
 
 
In 1665 an inquest was held to investigate the mysterious death of the infant daughter (Katherine) of John and Lucreece, who was strangled in her bed "on a hot May day". 
 
 
In 1676 John Lanier and John Woodlief were sent to speak the the Governor William Berkeley about receiving help in defense of Indian raids.  Governor Berkeley refused their request and claimed that western Virginians killed both friendly and hostile Indians, precipitating the Indian attacks. 
 
The colonists asked Nathaniel Bacon (the Governor's nephew) to lead an attack on the Indians.  Governor Berkeley called Bacon a "rebel".  Bacon and his followers (including John Lanier Jr.) returned and burned Jamestown, VA.  Bacon's Rebellion (as it was called) led to the removal of Governor Berkeley and to colonial reforms.
