Black Book, Carmarthen, Robert Vaughan

Black Book of Carmarthen, Robert Vaughan (c.1592–1667)

Meaning, Origin, Etymology
The Vaughan surname is a Welsh nickname from Welsh fychan, the lenited form of bychan ‘small, little’. The lenited form of adjectives is the most frequent one in surnames, following the pattern in Welsh names proper seen in Ednyfed fychan ‘little Ednyfed’, the name of a 13th century warrior and ancestor of the Tudor dynasty. The name was typically used to distinguish father and son bearing the same name, as in Guyn Vaghan ap Guyn, 1325 in Morgan and Morgan. The name is also anglicized in the unlenited form Baughan, corresponds to the English name Little and the similar breton Bihan. Vaughan is also used as a form of the Irish surname McMahon. The Vaughan’s have been connected with Shrewsbury and the immediate surroundings since the 13th and 14th centuries, when some of the bailiffs og Shrewsbury were name Vaughan or Vaghan. Another ancient home of the Vaughans is that of Brecknockshire in South Wales where a Sir Roger Vaughan, one of the heroes of Agincourt was part of this family. From this family come the Vaughans of Courtfield in Monmouthshire and of Clifford in Herefordshire.

Colonel, Uriah Vaugan, North Carolina

Col. Uriah Vaughan d. Jan. 19, 1890

THE VAUGHAN FAMILY OF HERTFORD COUNTY, N.C. 
Col. Uriah Vaughan was a most remarkable man. He sprang from an ancestry long noted for their strong characters, strong minds, and success in their enterprises. He was born November 29, 1813 on his father’s plantation near Murfreesboro, in Hertford County, N.C. His parents were John Vaughan and wife Sarah Vaughan nee Rogers of Hertford County. He received only a limited education at the neighborhood schools. He was indulged by his father as were many of the Southern boys in antebellum days. While attending the neighborhood schools his father sent with a colored servant to carry his basket of food for his dinner and to otherwise serve his young master. Young Vaughan possessed a quick, vigorous, and active mind, and the schoolroom soon became too contracted to retain his restless spirit. He saw a world around him and at the early age of fifteen against the advice of his father, he left school and came to Murfreesboro, a place then of much enterprise and a commercial center for the surrounding counties, and engaged himself to Wm. Rea, who was doing a large mercantile business in the town at that time. After a few years experience, as clerk in the store of Mr. Rea, he launched out in business for himself and met with great success. By his great perception, quick, clear and active mind and great energy, he was soon enabled to acquire knowledge, information and learning that made him the peer of the College graduate. He was refined and dignified, yet possessed a most cheerful disposition in his family and with his friends. His great chivalry and Chesterfieldian manner and lofty appreciation of female character won for him his military title of Colonel – a title he wore with wonderful fitness, dignity and ease. Colonel Vaughan married June 16, 1842, Sarah Amanda Jenkins, daughter of Capt. Henry DeBerry Jenkins and wife, Sarah A., of Hertford County. They were blessed with eleven children, three of whom – Benjamin, Julia and William who all died young. The other seven children who grew to maturity were: Annie, who married Geo. L. Arps of Norfolk, Va., and died in 1880, leaving one son, Frederick; Bettie, who married ex-Judge David A. Barnes of Northampton County, in 1872. Later Judge Barnes moved to Murfreesboro to live and died in 1892, leaving surviving him his wife and four children, Bessie, David Collin, Sarah A. and Annie R.; Alice who married Dr. R.H. Stancell, of Northampton County. They have no issue.; Cornelia Hartshorn, but was always called Nellie, who married the writer, B.B. Winborned, December 23, 1879. The living issue of this marriage are Stanley and Benj B. Winborne, Jr., Uriah V., the oldest, and Micajah, the youngest, died young.; Thomas Jenkins Vaughan. He married Miss Mary Eliza. Brown, of Baltimore, Md. They had no issue.; Rosa Thackston, who married Robert W. Winborne, Esq., a distinguished lawyer of Roanoke, Va., February 3, 1903. He died in June, 1907, without issue by his marriage with Miss Vaughan, but left sons, Roger and Robert W., Jr., by a former marriage.; Uriah Vaughan, Jr. He married Miss Fannie Early Brown of Lynchburg, Va. Their children are Mary and Sara.; Sarah Amanda, who married Thomas W. Hawkins, Esq., of Littleton, N.C., but now of Charlotte, N.C. They have four children, Rosa, Vaughan, Sarah and Thomas. Colonel Vaughan after a long and busy life died January 19, 1890, the wealthiest man in his county, admired and respected by those who knew him. He was a faithful member of the Methodist Church through life and died in the faith. His wife Mrs. Sarah A. Vaughan, who was a most charming old lady, died January 15, 1901. Colonel Vaughan’s daughters were educated at the colleges in Murfreesboro and his sons closed their education at Randolph-Macon College in Virginia. Colonel Vaughan devoted most of his life to the mercantile business, yet he was a large landowner and successful farmer. In 1872 he and his nephew, John N. Vaughan, formed a partnership under the firm name of Vaughan & Co. to do a general commision business in the city of Norfolk, Va. In 1873 Geo. B. Barnes was taken in the partnership and the name became Vaughan, Barnes & Co. They met with great success. Colonel Vaughan retired from the firm in 1881. Mrs. Sarah A. Vaughan, his wife, was educated at the “Banks’ School” in Murfreesboro- a school of high grade, and the educational fountain from which spran the Chowan Baptist Female Institute. Colonel Vaughan left a will which is of record in Hertford and other counties. His two sons, Thomas J. and Uriah, and sons-in-law, David A. Barnes and B.B. Windborne, were named as his executors. Judge Barnes declined to qualify. Col. U. Vaughan’s two sons, Thomas J. and Uriah are merchants in the town of their nativity and married sisters. They were the daughters of James Leftwich Brown and wife, Mary Leftwich, and grandson of Henry Brown and wife, Alice Beard, of Bedford County, Va. James L. Brown, Esq., was married to Miss Early September 30, 1847, and they had several daughters. She was born October 1, 1822 and died July 18, 1864. Her husband survived her and he died August 12, 1872. This family was connected with the Witts, Hancocks, Mooremans and Jackson, some of the most prominent families of Old Virginia.
