Research interest: Ecological Restoration, Restoration Ecology of Ponderosa Pine Ecosystems, Restoration ecology deals with research

and management experimentation to determine ways for safely restoring degraded ecological systems to nearly natural conditions. The

goal of this process is to alleviate ecosystem health problems by emulating the structure, function, diversity, and dynamics of the

specified ecosystem.

 

Our research has focused on western long-needled pine ecosystems, of which ponderosa pine is the most extensive type. Ongoing

research seeks to determine the range of conditions that existed in the ponderosa pine type before Euro-American settlement. In addition,

retrospective ecological analysis serves to determine the recent change in ecological and resource conditions resulting from disruption of

natural structures and processes. Experimental research projects are designed to: 1) restore natural conditions on specific sites so that

they may serve as reference points for comparison to other land management treatments; 2) to determine the range of ecological

structures and processes in restored sites; and 3) to determine practical methods for ecological restoration. In addition to small-plot (0.3 -

 5-acre) studies, we are now working on operational ecosystem management experiments on scale of 50 - 600 acres.

 2nd Mar: around 1965 at U.S.A. to Beverly 4653. 3rd Mar: 19 Dec 1990 at Tampa FL to Sylvia 16993. Composer, Conductor, Arranger,

 Trombonist, Singer. Address, 1939 Valentine's Road, Westbury, Long Island, New York. Studied trombone in Philadelphia suburbs, first

 job with Isham Jones in 1939, subsequently with Mitchell Ayres and Horace Heidt Band with Frankie Carle (Piano) and Fazola Irving

Prestopnik (Clarinet), until 1943, when he joined the Coast Guard. Warren is described as "A brilliant lead trombonist". In Tars & Spars

show while in service.

 

Joined Les Brown after discharge in late 1945, for 5 months working with Steve Madrick, Ted Nash, Eddie Scherr (Sax), Don Jacoby,

Jimmy Zito (Trumpet), Geoff Clarkson (Piano) and Doris Day (Vocals) before joining Gene Krupa in 1946. From 1946 to 1956 he was

on CBS staff in New York. Led a group called The Commanders 1946-47. Joined the Tommy Dorsey Band in 1950 and assumed

leadership in February 1958 after Dorsey's death, taking it on the road and making records on the Decca label, with his wife Kathee

Covington, as singer. The band became known under his own name after 1961. They toured England in 1974. Their most well known

recording is said to be "The Tipsy Trombone". Dorsey had been Warren's early influence.

 

Also recorded with studio big bands accompanying Charles Mingus (1971), Randy Weston (1972), Bobby Hacket (1973) and George

Benson (1974). He continues to be active as a studio musician and in films.  (The Big Bands - George T Simon) (The Encyclopeadia Of

Jazz & The Encyclopeadia Of Jazz in the 60s - Leonard Feather) (The Encyclopeadia Of Jazz in the 70s - Leonard Feather/I.Gitter)

 

Info from website: http://nfo.net/usa/c5.html "As a child, Covington first studied trombone, with a private instructor in a suburb of his

hometown. He subsequently studied composition with Danny Hurd at New York University; and voice with Dr. Stetson Humphrey in

Hollywood, California. His career began in the late 1930s. In 1939, he played with Isham Jones. He worked with the Horace Heidt

orchestra from 1941-'43. In the mid-1940s, he worked with Les Brown and Gene Krupa orchestras before joining CBS's music staff.

During World War II, he served in the U.S. Coast Guard, 1943-45, incl. "Tars and Spars" show. From 1946 and 1947, Covington led

The Commanders group

 

In 1950, he first recorded with Tommy Dorsey's band, and in 1958 became the leader after Dorsey died. From 1961 into the '70s,

Covington toured with the band (heading it under his name). During the '70s, he was heard on various film soundtracks, and also

recorded with 'studio' big bands accompanying such stars as Bobby Hackett, Randy Weston, Charles Mingus, and George Benson.

 

There is an interesting sidenote to Covington's stay with Heidt. Heidt had gotten the idea to own three places. He actually did buy the

'Casino Gardens', in Santa Monica, California. He also wanted to buy the 'Graystone Manor' in Detroit, and the 'Glen Island Casino', in

New Rochelle, NY (then owned by the city). It was Heidt's idea to set up two more bands, - the Frankie Carle Orchestra, the Warren

Covington Orchestra and his own Horace Heidt Orchestra. These three bands would rotate, broadcasting from each venue. As a benefit

of the broadcasts, the bands could then set up tours. The plan came crashing down when an ASCAP-BMI fight caused a ban on

recordings. In November 1945, Covington resumed work as a sideman, with Les Brown, remaining with Brown for five or six months,

followed by a brief period with Gene Krupa.

 

After his service discharge at the end of WWII, Covington became a 'sessions' man in the New York city studios. He spent about 10

years in the studios. In September 1950, he even played in Tommy Dorsey's band on a pair of recording sessions. In 1956-'57, while on

the staff at CBS, he began to think about forming his own band. With the help of the Willard Alexander booking agency, he was signed as

 leader of 'The Commanders', a recording group on the Decca label. Then Tommy Dorsey died. The Dorsey estate contacted the Willard

Alexander booking agency, and the Estate and Agency selected Covington as front man for a new Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, In

February 1958, Covington and the band hit the road


 

Covington led the Dorsey band for 3-1/2 years, through September 1961. However, having to play 6-7 nights a week took its toll, and

even before his contract was up, he began hoping for a less hectic pace. So, he gave the estate a year's notice, and then continued on as

'Warren Covington and orchestra', doing that ever since.

 

In 1969, he cut some Dorsey-style recordings of recent pop songs for the 'Reader's Digest'.company A few years later, he applied to the

U.S. Patent Office for rights to the names "The Pied Pipers" and "The Clambake 7." Covington used the trademarks in his various tributes

 to the Tommy Dorsey band, including a 22-day tour to the United Kingdom in 1974, that also featured Dorsey alumni Sy Oliver, Skeets

Herfurt, Johnny Mince, and Pee Wee Erwin. The "Tommy Dorsey Orchestra led by Warren Covington" also appeared on a PBS-TV

fundraiser, "Big Band Bash," taped in New York City in 1978; and also appeared at one of President Reagan's inaugural balls in

Washington, D.C. in January 1985.

 

During his long career, Covington's musical talent helped the Big Bands of Les Brown, Tommy Dorsey, Gene Krupa, and even the Allman

 Brothers rock band. He also helped such singers as crooner Perry Como. His talent was also used in the Hollywood studios, including

playing on the soundtrack of "The Godfather". "

 

Personal contribution from daughter-in-law Elizabeth in March 2010 reads "Warren Lewis Covington was my father-in-law, born August

7, 1921 in Philadelphia,  he passed away in 1999.  Lewis K. Covington (K is for Knox) was my husbands great grandfather. Yesterday I

traced Lewis Covington born 1785, Culpeper, Virginia.   Married to Sally Ann Beazley born 1814, Culpeper Virginia, married 13

September 1834 in Caroline, Virginia.  They had ten children and a son named Lewis Covington born 1844, Culpeper, Va.  Lewis served 

in the America Civil War, Confederacy, in the ranch Light Artillery Battery Virginia from 8 February 1863 to 7 October 1864  He was

promoted to Full Corporal on 18 Aug 1864.

 

My husbands family made it a little easier to follow them from generation to generation as they all carried the name Lewis or Lewis C.

Covington.  Don's great father was Lewis K. Covington, born May 5, 1888, Philadelphia, Pa,  His father was Lewis K Covington born

1858 in Philadelphia, Pa.  Lewis K. Covington born 1844 in Culpeper, Va., moved to Philadelphia, Pa. 

 

There is a link out of Virginia with a Lewis Covington going back to England, in the Huntingdon area.  I am still working on tracing

records to be sure this is correct. 

 

My husband's father was Warren Lewis Covington, who was a famous trombonist worked with Les Brown, Lombardi and eventually

took over the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra when Mr. Dorsey died.  He went on to do most of the music at the Ed Sullivan Studio, sessions

in "The Godfather", "Barbarela", etc.,  Warren did well with his hit gold record "Tea for Two Cha Cha" in the late fifties.  Warren Lewis

Covington, unfortunately broke the chain naming his male children Lewis, the oldest Donald Warren Covington (my husband), Dennis,

Dave, Cathie, Christopher and Saundra.  Warren was married three times, Florence Deans (first three boys) from Philadelphia, Beverly

(called her Kathie) (two girls and a boy) and Sylvia, no children with Warren,  who is still living in Florida.

 

You might want to check www.FamilySearch.com, I found allot of information and www.Ancestry.com.  You can also look up Warren

I. Covington on line and they give you his bio.  The problem being there are few items that are incorrect.  Warren died in the Tampa area

and they do not mention his first wife, Flo or Florence (he called her Terre)"

 

His known addresses were: 1939 - Valentines Rd., Westbury, Long Island, NY (late 1950s); 151 Fox  Hollow Rd., Wyckoff, NJ (1960s);

 11223 Pocket Brook Dr., Tampa, FL (1990s)

 


Letter from 3rd wife, Sylvia to Christopher Popa in Nov 2005: "Warren and I were introduced by a mutual friend when he relocated to

Tampa in 1989 and we were married in our home on Dec. 19, 1990.  Buddy Morrow was the best man and Connie Haines sang.  Connie

and Warren performed together often . . . She remains a close friend.  Warren and I shared a passion for music and, as I was a retired

dancer from The Tampa Ballet, a mutual appreciation and understanding of life in 'show business.'  We also shared a combined family of

10 children and ever-increasing grandchildren . . . People closest to Warren attributed his success to an incredible energy that would

electrify a room.  He actually glowed on stage.  He never lost it.  Warren practiced every day of our ten years together until just before he

 died . . . Another more interesting fact is that Warren's first professional gig was at the Steel Pier on Tybee Island, GA and 52 years

later, also his last professional gig . . . "

included work on B-17 Flying Fortress, Minuteman intercontinental ballistic missile, and on the Saturn V rocket that launched the Apollo

moon missions.

 

Born in Wichita Falls, Texas, on December 29, 1920, Wayne Covington developed an early interest in aeronautics and took his

mechanical engineering degree at Georgia Tech. He worked on the B-17 from 1943 to 1946 in Seattle before returning to Texas to teach

and earn his master's degree.

 

After doctoral studies at the University of California, Berkeley, Covington returned to Seattle and Boeing. He applied his skills to a wide

range of projects, including the B-47 Stratojet bomber, Minuteman ICBM, Saturn V SIC booster, special 747 adaptations to ferry the

Space Shuttle, and the Inertial Upper Stage booster. Former astronaut and NASA director Deke Slayton honored Covington's

contributions to the Apollo program with the "Silver Snoopy" award.

School was built in 1986 and had a student population of 800 students. As the surrounding neighborhoods grew, so did Covington. In

1988, sixth grade was added to our student body. By 1999, the population had grown to 1300 students.

 

Covington, built in 1986, was named after Weldon and Verna Covington. They were master teachers in music, and their bands always

ranked among the top in state competitions. Their teaching careers spanned more than 50 years, and together they developed the

successful music programs for the District.

 

Mr. Covington began teaching in AISD in 1932. Under his guidance, the band program grew from eight members to over 1,000 students.

 From 1935 on, his bands were winning first division places in the National Band Contests. In 1952, he was invited to join the American

Bandmaster's Association, becoming recognized internationally as a leader in the concert band field.

 

Mrs. Covington started teaching immediately after graduating from the University of Texas with a degree in music education, becoming

the first woman band director in Texas. Twice, her bands were runner-up to the honor band and her junior high bands consistenly won

many state and national honors.

 

The Covingtons have been members of the Texas Music Educators Association for over 50 years. Mr. Covington served TMEA as the

band and orchestra chairman and also as president in 1947.

 

The Covingtons gave their careers to their students and to AISD. They served Texas' music through various programs and functions all

their lives and are known for their devotion and zest in nurturing thousands of children who received a musical blessing from their

instruction.

 

Covington's school colors are maroon and gold and the school mascot is the colt & the school motto is "Excellence for All!".

 

A 2nd article from the Texas State Historical Association provides the following biography: "Weldon Joseph Covington, acclaimed band

director, was born on March 5, 1908, in Alvord, Texas. At the age of nine he was the pianist for the Baptist church in Alvord. His first

job as a band director was in his junior year in Alvord High School, 1924–25. The school found itself without a band director, but

students were interested in being in band. Covington asked the principal if he could direct the band, and the principal granted him

permission. From there, he studied music at North Texas Agricultural College (now University of Texas at Arlington) and Simmons

University (now Hardin-Simmons University) in Abilene, Texas, where he was an apprentice as musician and director. He received his

B.A. in music from Simmons University in June 1931. He later engaged in further studies at Ithaca Conservatory of Music in New York.

 

 

His first teaching assignment after earning his degree was at Austin High School in the fall of 1931. While teaching at Austin High School,

 he met his future wife. Verna Young (born February 22, 1915) was one of his choir students. Once she graduated from high school,

they started dating, married on August 24, 1933, and had two children. Verna Covington, who taught at Porter Junior High and Fulmore

Junior High, eventually became the first woman band director in Texas. Her junior high bands won both state and national honors.

 

Weldon Covington was influential in the development of instrumental music programs in Austin Independent School District (AISD)

during a rapid expansion of the city’s public schools. When he started in August 1931 as a music teacher at Austin High School, he had

only eight band members, five orchestra members, and thirty choir members. In 1939 he wrote the musical score to the school’s song

“Loyal Forever.” In 1940 he was asked to be the supervisor of AISD’s band and orchestra programs. He was significant in helping


females to be allowed to participate in band in 1940 and helped build the music program at Reagan High School, bringing instrumental

music to a predominately African-American school during the time of segregation. He received his M.A. in music from the University of

Texas at Austin in 1946. Covington became the full-time Supervisor of Instrumental Music in 1953. He retired from AISD in 1973 but

remained an active member of the Austin community.

 

Covington was involved with in instrumental music programs, not only in Austin, but across the state of Texas. In 1931 he became a

member of the Texas Bandmasters Association, which later became the Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) in 1938. At that

time, all music competitions in Texas were controlled by TMEA. The year that Covington served as the president of TMEA (1947), the

University Interscholastic League (UIL) took over all contest control.

 

Weldon Covington was well-respected and influential in the growth of instrumental programs across the state, and his many awards and

honors prove it. In 1952 he was elected as a member of the American Bandmasters Association, placing him among the nation’s elite

band directors. In 1981 he was inducted into TMEA’s Hall of Fame, as well as Austin High School’s Hall of Honor. In 1986 Covington

Middle School in Austin was named after Weldon and his wife Verna for their many contributions to instrumental music education in

AISD. In 1991 he and his wife were inducted into TMEA’s Phi Beta Mu’s Texas Bandmasters Hall of Fame.

 

Even after retirement, he remained active in AISD and enjoyed visiting with the students at Covington Middle School. Weldon Covington

died in Austin, Texas, of heart failure on July 10, 2000. He was buried at Oliver Cemetery. Hi wife Verna died on December 29, 2005."

 She was an American painter, notable as a student of Ella Sophonisba Hergesheimer. The daughter of Robert Wickliffe (who died a few

weeks before she was born) and Sarah Steele (Venable) Cooper, she studied at Sayre Female Institute, the New England Conservatory of

 Music and the Art Students League of New York. She also studied art with James Carroll Beckwith, Kenyon Cox, William Merritt Chase

and Wayman Elbridge Adams. She later taught art at Potter College for Young Ladies in Bowling Green. In 1892, she married Robert

Wells Covington, an attorney. (Wikipedia entry)

 

Kentucky Women Artists 1850-1970 website adds - After resigning her teaching position, she converted a log cabin near the Covington

home into a studio where she taught private lessons and painted. Wickliffe was educated at the Sayre Female Institute in Lexington, the

New England Conservatory of Music in Boston and New York City's Art Students League.

 

She studied with Carroll Beckwith, Kenyon Cox, William M. Chase and Wayman Adams. Known locally for her portraits of prominent

Bowling Green citizens, Covington also executed flower paintings and still lifes. Covington's work was exhibited throughout the South

and West where the Covingtons had a second home in Carmel, California.

 

Covington exhibited at the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis.

 

Along with noted artists, such as William Merritt Chase and photographer Ansel Adams, Covington was an artist and resident of the

Carmel art colony. Her first recorded visit was during the spring and summer of 1911, when she exhibited "tooled leather" at the Annual

of the Carmel Arts and Crafts Club. She purchased a studio-home, continued as a regular seasonal resident with her husband, and

exhibited on the Pacific coast with the Monterey County Fair, Santa Cruz Art League, and Carmel Art Association until 1937.[9] She also

exhibited her art in the southern United States.

 

Her painting Portrait of Clarence Underwood McElroy is in the Kentucky Museum collection of the Western Kentucky University. About

1895 she made a portrait of Judge Robert William Wells (1795-1864) of Missouri. In addition to the paintings that she made of notable

Bowling Green residents, she also painted still lifes and flowers. She made a poster Aunt Jane of Kentucky, which was used to promote

Eliza Calvert Hall's daughter's teahouse business.

 

Her works were exhibited in 2001 at the Kentucky Women Artists, 1850-1970 show at the Kentucky Library & Museum, Owensboro

Museum of Art.

WILL FRANK COVINGTON. Ref: 5584. Born: around 1885 at Alabama AL. Father: not known, Father Ref: 0. Mother: not known,

Mother Ref: 0. Owner of W.F. Covington Planter Co. Ltd,originally at  P.O. Box 1947, Dothan, Alabama, a manufacturer of Farm

Implements, now based in Georgia.

 

Press release from the company :

 

"Covington Planter is proud to begin celebrating our 100th anniversary on January 1, 2011. Combined with our sister company, Cole

Planter, we

are the oldest planting equipment manufacturer in the United States,

and Covington has continuously and proudly produced quality planters since 1911. To this day, each piece of equipment is hand

fabricated on some of the same machines and cast in the same molds as those that were used in the 1930s. We ensure that each piece is

as sturdy and reliable today as it was back then. We have always and will continue to be proud to support with caring appreciation our

loyal customers who have helped make us what we are today. 

 

Originally founded in Headland, Alabama by Will Frank Covington Sr.,

Covington began its business during the reign of cotton in the South. The earlier versions of the planters were initially designed to be mule

 

drawn but were reengineered into heavier models just prior to World

War II for the new “tractor power.” Soon after the war, the company expanded its manufacturing capacity and moved to Dothan,

Alabama. In 1947 Covington was acclaimed by the Alabama Farmers State newspaper: 

 

“The W. F. Covington Planter Company had embodied for years what the State Chamber of Commerce and other business groups have

recently been preaching. That is the supplementing of the farm with factory…Mr. Covington simply had a good idea for making planters

and distributors and the energy to put his ideas into practice. The growth of the firm proves that he had a good product … and people of

the region feel a deep pride in having a manufacturer in their midst who understands their needs and is in position to fill them.

 

The larger headquarters allowed Covington to continue to grow and the

company even started exporting to Guatemala in that same year. 

 

Almost forty years later, following Frank Covington Jr.’s death, Covington

Planter Company moved to it’s current facility in Albany, Georgia under

the leadership of Mark Pirrung. The planters continue to be produced in

the proven classic Covington design with important improvements to

keep the product up to date yet honest to it’s tried and true design.

 

Covington today has over 225 dealers and distributors throughout the

United States and as far away as Australia.  Now it is our turn to

formally express our pride in being an integral part of the agricultural

industry and thank you for your support! We look forward to continuing

to provide you with quality planting equipment. "

The Harrold History website reports the following "The Covington Family: American Colonists and Pioneers"

 

The Covington family can be traced back in Harrold to Elizabethan times when William Covington  was born in the village in around

1593. There were  Covingtons in other parts of North Bedfordshire, including Bedford and nearby Turvey and, of course, in the village of

 Covington just across the county border in the Kimbolton part of Huntingdonshire.

 

We know little of the early life of William in Harrold or of his wife, but a son George was born in 1617 and sadly died that same year. In

November 1618 a second son William was born and eventually  there were three more children, Joan, Hannah and Robert. The family all

grew up in Harrold and in 1639 William was married in nearby Pavenham to Ann.  Within the first few years of this marriage Ann died

and, sometime in the 1640s, William emigrated to America (this coincided with The English Civil War).

 

We know that he was transported to Virginia as an indentured emigrant and that his transportation had been arranged by brothers John

and George Mott. He arrived in Old Rappahannock County of the colony of Virginia (now known as Essex County). The Mott brothers

were agents in recruiting and shipping colonists for Virginia and for this service they received a patent for 15,564 acres of land on waters

 draining into the Rappahannock River on 17 October, 1670. This was for 313 indentured workers known as “headrights”. William’s

name was on that list and so too was the name of Thomas Howerton (born in England around 1640 and shipped to Virginia in the 1660s.

 

 

Thomas and William became partners and William subsequently married Dorothy Howerton who was probably Thomas’s sister.

 

William and Dorothy Covington raised a family. Thomas and William were obviously involved in the tobacco trade because in 1670 they

purchased a small part of the Mott plantation for 3,000 pounds of tobacco. Originally this was for 300 acres, but by 1683 the partners

had together acquired 1000 acres and they then divided this up by an “Agreement between Howerton and Covington to divide land from

Mr. Mott. Howerton to have land on the south side and Covington to have land on the north side of Dragon Swamp”( 4th April 1683).

 

The Dragon Swamp is also Known as the Dragon Run; it is a stream which flows into a tidal tributary of Chesapeake Bay. In 1607 it was

 first explored by Captain John Smith and became a popular area for settlement in the 1640s by what are still referred to in Virginia as the

Cavaliers.

 

William Covington’s will was made in 1696 and proved the next year when he died at the age of 77.  He left the plantation, which by then

 included a mill known as Covington’s Mill, to his three sons. A daughter and a grand-daughter each received a cow.

 

William Covington was probably the first person from Harrold to set foot in the New World. His arrival in the 1640s was just over 20

years after the Pilgrim Fathers had made their epic journey to New England and when settlement in Virginia was in its infancy. Other

members of the Covington family later came from England. Nehemiah Covington from the Huntingdonshire village of that name arrived in

 the 1660s.

 

Today there are more than a thousand names of the direct descendants of the Harrold branch stemming from “William Covington the

Immigrant”.  Genealogical records based on primary sources such as wills, land registration, state and county records and family bibles,

etc. show the spread of these Covingtons through the states of the USA over 13 generations. A random sample of 62 of these Harrold


descendants (all those named William Covington) have revealed that they were born in 12 states of the USA:

 

Virginia 37%, Tennessee 19.5%, Texas 11%, South Carolina 6.5%, Alabama  6.5%, North Carolina 5%, Missouri 5%, Kentucky 3.5%,

lllinois 3.5%, Maryland 1.5%, Mississippi 1.5%,

 

Within this single branch of a family is the story of the making of America – early settlements in Virginia and the Carolinas, wagon train

migration to Tennessee and to Missouri, and military involvement in the Revolutionary War the Mexican War, the American Civil War (on

 both sides)  and two world wars. Between these major events ordinary people were involved in farming, setting up businesses,

missionary involvement in the churches, public service, academic life and, even, rocket science.  The Harrold branch of the Covingtons

certainly played its part in the foundation of modern America.

Haywarton, Dorothy 6169. Christened: 15 Nov 1618 at Harrold. Said to have emigrated to the U.S. around 1645. Was in US before Dec

26 1668. Said to have received lands in 1670 for transporting emigrants to the colonies. He patented land in 1687 on the Dragon Swamp,

between Covington's swamp and Chaney's swamp, this was known as the Quarter Plantation. And is located south of the present

Tappahannock VA.

 

He owned 1000 acres called Dragon Run and established Covingtons Mill in 1690 (the mill was rebuilt in 1808 and still stands today in

Essex County)

 

1697 - The will of William Covington dated 4 Nov 1696 was proved in court on 10 May 1697, Essex County, Virginia, Deed Book 9,

Page 105, attested by Thomas Haywarton & Thomas Watkins.. One of his daughters, name not known,  married a William Brothers in

1683. He left all his land to his wife and 3 (?) sons (richard, Thomas & William). He also left a cow to one EllinorCorpe, who may have

been his daughter, although this relationship is not mentioned in the will. A cow was also left to his grand-daughter Mary.

 

(some info from Thomas Falconer book dated 1994 pages 54-68) (additional datafrom Martin Bryan Covington)

 

Additional info from submission to Genealogy.com by Anne R Bruce: " descend from Thomas Howerton (often spelled Hayworten, etc.)

of Virginia. In reading your list, here, it refers over and over to Dorothy, the wife of the emigrant William Covington as a daughter of

Thomas Howerton.

 

The Howertons don't have any proof that she was a Howerton but we acknowledge an extremely close friendship between the two men.

She may have been a sister, but he was, by the existing records and deeds, a single man as late as 1670.

 

If she was not a Howerton, the Covington records should reflect that her last name is unknown.

 

William and Thomas did come to Virginia early, but as indentured servants transported by John and George Mott. This information was

compiled by Howerton researcher, Bryan Howerton, whose work in always documented. The data discovered is:

 

Thomas Howerton was born about 1640 in England, exact location not yet discovered. He came to the Virginia colony about 1663 as he

was one of 313 people claimed as "headrights" by the brothers Mott on 17 October, 1670. The Motts were awarded a Patent for 15,564

acres of land on waters draining into the Rappahannock River as compensation for the indentured people whom they had transported to

the colony. William Covington, who became a partner of Thomas Howerton, was included in the group of people for whose transport the

 Motts received the land patent.

 

So, in or around 1663, the Covington ancestor and the Howerton ancestor arrived together, as indentured men. We don't know the name

of the wife of Thomas Howerton, but we know the first name of the wife of William Covington- it was Dorothy, but she and Wiliam

were contemporaries of Thomas Howerton, not younger!

 

By 1670, close to seven years after arrival, William and Dorothy Covington and Thomas 'Haywarton' paid 3000 pounds of tobacco to a

William Richards for 300 acres on Dragon Swamp.

 

We have never established any proof that Dorothy was a Howerton. What is the Covington proof of her surname? Thomas may not have

even been married in 1670, as William and Dorothy sign as husband and wife, and Thomas Howerton signs alone, the deed dated 10


October, 1670.

The land on Dragon Swamp they bought as partners, is a part, evidently of the 15,564 acres that the Motts were awarded.

 

On 3 April, 1683, William Covington and Thomas Howerton were dividing the Dragon Swamp land. The abstract I have seen on this

Agreement to divide omits the name of Dorothy.

On 4 April, 1683, "Agreement between Howerton and Covington to divide land from Mr. Mott. Howerton to have land on the south side

and Covington to have land on the north side of Dragon Swamp.

 

On 17 April, 1683; Thomas Howerton witnessed a deed from William Covington to his brothers."

 

The early Old Rappahannock and Essex records are the ones abstracted for all the data above.

 

Can anyone add to any of this?" (abruce@televar.com)

Perhaps our ancestors came to America simply to improve their lot in life and that they certainly did. The period of indentured service

required in payment for transport to the colonies varied from time to time. They were fortunate to have arrived at a time when that period

 was at the lowest term found during our research of records. After serving his obligated period of indentured service, Thomas Howerton

 settled in (Old) Rappahannock County, Virginia, on land that straddles the line between present-day Essex and King & Queen Counties,

Virginia. The present village of Howertons, in Essex County, Virginia probably lies on land originally owned by him.

 

The date of the first acquisition of land in Virginia by Thomas Howerton has not been determined; however, in 1670 he and William

Covington sold 300 acres of land they jointly held in (Old) Rappahannock County. The deed refers to both Howerton and Covington as

"Planters"; which would indicate they were established holders and farmers. The ancient Indian trail, Assnamonnock Footpath, crossed

their land and much of their attention was directed to dealing with the Indians. The Indians occupied a large village nearby until at least

1722. They raised subsistence crops and were self supporting. Their principal money crop was tobacco. Their casks of tobacco was

rolled down to the Rappahannock River for shipment. The port conveniently located there was regularly visited by ocean going ships. It

was called New Plymouth, which name was changed to Hobbs His Hole in 1680 and was subsequently named Tappahannock.

 

Thomas Howerton and William Covington apparently entered into a compatible partnership soon after Thomas' arrival in America. On 20

May 1674 they purchased 365 additional acres of land near Great Dragon Swamp. The low area in which they had settled was unhealthy,

 raw, primitive, and required drainage and clearing. Their partnership continued at least until April 1683, when they divided their land on

both sides and through the swamp. In the years that followed there was a long association and many marriages between descendants of

the two men. Thomas owned considerable land in his own right which fell into Essex and King & Queen Counties upon the

discontinuation of (Old) Rappahannock County in 1692. The part of Great Dragon Swamp in which the land was located is today

identified as Dragon Run. This is a beautiful area which has been extensively cultivated in the past, but much of which is now covered by

 second-growth timber.

Essex Co VA to St John, Amy 6200. He followed his brother Thomas to Amelia County in 1740 and bought land there. He was sued for

debt in 1741 and again in 1746.

 

After his first wife died, he returned to Essex County to marry a widow and then returned to Amelia. In 1772 he sold his land, left his son

 William in charge of collecting and paying outstanding debts and moved to Edgefield County SC where he obtained land on Sweetwater

Creek.

 

He became a Captain in the SC Militia and when the Revolution started their unit was engaged in the siege of Augusta. This battle didn't

involve any British troops, but was strickly between Loyalists and Patriots. William was assigned to General Pickens to care for the sick.

He was able to use his own supplies to do this since he was less than 10 miles from home. After the war he put in a claim for about 60

pounds in personal expenses and was apparaently paid in full. His will is in the state archives in Columbia SC (info from Bryan Covington

2002)

 

His family lived in Edgefield SC during the Revolutionary War. Info from Karen Ann Shepherd (mngkaren@aol.com)

The History of Harrold - William Covington, Harrold Clockmaker

"William Covington was perhaps one of the best known of the Harrold clockmakers. This cottage industry developed in the Eighteenth

Century when  local craftsmen set up small workshops or worked at home. Sometimes it was farm workers who made good use of the

winter months. Some were apprenticed elsewhere in Bedfordshire and some even had apprentices themselves.

 

William Covington was not born in Harrold but in nearby Turvey in 1719. His father was Peter Covington (1679 to 1744) the Turvey

blacksmith, a trade that went back in the family over at least 3 further generations to late Elizabethan times. The family business of

working with metal was obviously good preparation for working with much smaller and precision parts of making clocks.

 

William’s mother was  Judith Williamott. In 1743 he married Elizabeth Killingworth (born in Cold Brayfield in 1718) in Turvey church .

Soon after this the couple moved to Harrold where each of their four children were baptised in St Peter’s Church between 1744 and

1756. We do not know why William moved from Turvey to Harrold, but it may be that the clockmaking industry was already embedded

there or it could have been that other Covingtons were already living in the village and had been for more than 150 years. However, we

do not know what was the relationship between the Turvey and Harrold  branches of the Covington family. William Covington’s

namesake had left Harrold to become an early settler in the colony of Virginia a century before.

 

William obviously gained a reputation for his clockmaking skills and his workmanship was enduring . One clock is still to be found in

private ownership in the village, another is to be seen in the West End Baptist Meeting House in nearby Stevington, a parliament clock

clearly marked “William Covington Harrold” and we have heard of others being bought or sold.

 

After about fourteen years in Harrold, William moved in about 1758 to Hitchin in Hertfordshire and eventually to Stony Stratford,

Buckinghamshire. He carried on his trade in these places and was succeeded in the business by his son John in the early part of the

Nineteenth Century.

 

The parliament clock was made by William Covington c. 1750 and has stood in the West End Baptist Meeting Church in Stevington for

over two and a half centuries."

Blackistone, Mary, Mother Ref: 11327.  Died: 13 Apr 1789 at Essex Co VA aged 69.  Mar: during 1742 at Queen Anne's Co MD to

Newman, Sarah 11252. 2nd Mar: during 1768 at North Carolina NC to Thomas, Rachel 11253. A great deal of confusion exists regarding

 4 William Covington's who were around at the same time. (refs 11185, 11251, 12447 & 19491).

 

Maryland Marriages 1634-1777 by Robert Barnes gives this marriage as William "Covinton" in 1742 in Queen Anne's County. No month

or day are included, and the compiler makes no mention of these omissions though other marriages prior to 1742 include this information.

 

 

As yet, there is no known reference for the marriage of this William to Rachel, so there is no proof of her maiden name as Thomas. Her

first name Rachel is known by William's will. It is even possible that he never married a Rachel & the one mentioned in his will is his

step-mother!!

 

William patented 140 acres as " Covington's Necessity " in Tully's Neck on the west side of Tuckahoo Creek in Queen Anne's Co., Md.

In 1754, Wm. Bought " Rachel's Desire ", 37 acres, from Henry and Rachel Covington (his father and step-mother). He traded these

tracts to Nathaniel Covington for 91 acres of " Hinsely's Plains ", also in Queen Anne's. This he later sold to Mathew & Tilghman in Nov

1756.

 

His wife, Sarah, joined in these conveyances. MD patent books TI #1, p. 494, BT & BY, p. 583, Queen Anne's Co., MD. Deed books RT

 #D, pp. 183, 289, RT #E, p. 86. First Covington in Anson Co., NC. Had a land grant deeded 25 Jan 1768. For 20 pounds, Wm. Bought

from John Long and Mary Blacksmith, 150 acres on Baggots Branch of Cartiledge Creek, NE side of Pee Dee River, as granted to

Abraham Baggot on 5 Dec 1760.

 

Can be found in the Anson Co. Deed Book H - I, p. 364. This land is now in Richmond Co. Wm was excused from paying Poll Tax in

July Court 1788 ( Richmond Co. ) because he was over 60 years old ( court minutes p. 146 ). Wm. Is reported to be a revolutionary

patriot for furnishing supplies to the revolutionary army. Buried at Cartiledge Creek Baptist Church.

In Jan 1768 bought 150 acres on Baggetts Branch of Cartledges Creek in then Anson County (Richmond in 1779), was relieved of poll

tax in 1787 "by reason of his being over sixty years of age" (so born about 1726), and still a landowner on Baggetts Branch at his death in
