The earliest information on the family of John Friar Hall comes from information first recorded 130 years later. See the Eisemon papers for the source of this information. We do not have contemporary documentary evidence for some of this. Nevertheless, here is the family tradition


¶1 John Friar Hall was born 16 Oct 1768 in Loudoun Co VA and died 15 Oct 1850 in Amherst Co VA. His father was James Hall and his mother's maiden name was Friar, Fryar, Fryer, or Frier. She died in 1773 in Alexandria VA. There is a suggestion that John Friar Hall's grandmother was named Moon.

James Hall remarried and settled in Franklin Co VA, where John Friar Hall acquired real estate which he later exchanged for real estate in Amherst Co. Some family tradition, supported partly by Amherst Co records, states that John Friar Hall moved from Franklin Co to Amherst Co in 1802. On 9 May 1803 in Amherst Co John Friar Hall married his first cousin, Betsy Hall, daughter of Moses Hall. Betsy was born about 1778 and died on 2 May 1853. (from grave stone on a farm in Amherst Co VA)

This information suggests that James Hall and Moses Hall were brothers. I have been unable to verify anything concerning the Halls prior to their appearance in Amherst Co. Early tithe records of Loudoun Co do show James Hall and Moses Hall, apparently in the same household, and also show John Friar in a separate household. That is the full extent of the verification of the tradition prior to what is in the Amherst Co records.

Family tradition says that James Hall was married twice, and that John Friar Hall was the eldest son by his first wife. John Friar Hall did not get along with James Hall's second wife and left home on that account. James Hall was said to have been a stout man. He was at a mill on one occasion, crossing the mill race on a plank while carrying a very heavy load on his shoulder. When he was about half way across, the plank began to slip and he tried to jump the remaining distance. He failed and as he went down, one of the grate bars went deeply into his leg and into his side and could easily have killed him. John Friar Hall related that when he left home, his father still had the grate bar and would show it and relate his narrow escape to all who came to see him.

There were Halls in Amherst Co beginning by 1785, but their relationship to John Friar Hall is unclear. An individual named John Hall bought 300 acres on the north branches of the Pedlar River in Amherst Co in 1785 (DB F p 217), but this is unlikely to be John Friar Hall, who would have been only 17 at the time. An individual named John Hall and his wife Elizabeth sold 150 acres of different land on Stony Creek of Rockfish River in 1789 (DB F p 323). This could have been John Friar Hall and a first wife named Elizabeth, but there is no evidence for this other than a similar name. Moses Hall and wife Mary sold some land on the south branches of Buffalo River and Horsley's Creek in 1794 (DB G p 450), and these might well have been the parents of Betsy Hall, wife of John Friar Hall. The first clear appearance of John Friar Hall was the sale in Oct 1802 by William Hall of Amherst Co and Polly his wife to John Fryer Hall of 40 acres on Pedlar River (DB I p 429).

James Hall, who possibly might have been the father of John Friar Hall, ran into financial difficulties in 1806 and 1807. James and Mazy his wife sold land and personal property in 1806, 1807 and 1808 to or for the benefit of David and James Garland (DB K p 208, DB L p 6, and DB L p 110)

Moses Hall sold some additional land to John Friar Hall in 1809 (DB L p 270). Moses Hall Sr and Hannah his wife sold some additional land in 1813 (DB M p 407).
