Notes
a. Note:   BIOGRAPHY: Immigrated from England to Virginia in 1649. Born in England. Gentleman of the Bedchamber for Charles I. Colonel of Horse. Fled to Northern Neck of Virginia in 1651, soon after the Battle of Worcestor, transported to Va before 1654 by his brother Thomas Fowke. BIOGRAPHY: Acquired a great deal of land inWestmoreland Co. Va. Was Colonel of Troops there. Moved to Maryland in 1660s. He was deceased at the time of his daughter's marriage to William Dent. He came to Va. with wife Ann (?), and cousin, Col. Geo. Mason, of Staff'd, Eng... BIOGRAPHY: In 1661 charges were made against Capt. Giles Brent, Col. Gerard Fowke, Mr. John Lord and Capt. Geo. Mason, of having injured and affronted Wahonganocke, King of the Potomac Indians. The Ho. of Burgesses investigated the charges and ordered that Fowke, Lord and Mason pay the Indian King 100 arms length of Roanoke apiece, or match coats instead at 20 arms length every coat. For permitting a "murtherer of the English delivered bound into his custody by Wahanganocke" to escape, the same Ass'y "ordered that Col. F. pay to the publique tenne thousand lbs. of tobacco." For high misdemeanor which they acknowledged in illegally imprisoning the said King, the Ass'y ordered that Brent and Fowke each should pay 15,000 lbs. tobacco, and "that they bee incapable of bearing any office, civil or military, in this countrey, and give bond severally for their good behaviour towards the said King and all other Indians, and that they pay the charges." Commissioners were also appointed to settle disputes between Col. Fowke and the said King relative to lands. It was also ordered, because of their removal, that the Cos. of West'd and North'd be one county, under the officers of North'd, until otherwise ordered. BIOGRAPHY: The indignation of the Assembly against these officers was evidently spasmodic, as Col. Gerard Fowke was elected Burgess from West'd Co., 1663, his credentials examined by special committee, and he, with others, was sworn in as such Sep. 11, 1663. The action of the Assembly disqualifying Col. Fowke, 1662, and admitting him as Burgess, 1663, has given color to the theory that there were three Colonels Gerard Fowke in Md. and Va. prior to 1700. There were three of the name prior to 1700, ... but only two who held the rank of Colonel. Col. F. moved to Charles Co., Md., 1664, locating on his estate at the head of Pt. Tobacco Cr'k. Jan. 2, 1665, "Coll. Gerrard Fowke" was unanimously elected by the Md. Ass'y Burgess for Charles Co., and was made Justice for said Co., Oct. 22, 1667. He probably held both offices until his death. His name disappears from Maryland Archives after 1669. It appears that he was also engaged in merchandizing. He left a numerous posterity.
