John Wilkes, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, John Wilkes might describe his life as follows.

In the 4 December 1778 edition of our Colonial newspaper, the Virginia Gazette, Joseph Wilkes advertised the sale of my estate to take place at my plantation six miles below the New Kent courthouse. 
Because the records of New Kent County burned, I can relate nothing about my life. Four sons may have been John Wilkes, Joseph Wilkes, Minor Wilkes, and Benjamin Wilkes, the progenitors of the Wilkes of Virginia and Tennessee. They were all likely born in New Kent and migrated about the same time to Southside Virginia: John to Amelia, Joseph to Brunswick, Minor to Lunenburg, and Benjamin to Lunenburg and then, Charlotte.
I may have been the son of Joseph Wilkes of Blisland Parish who paid quit rents, a form of tax, on 250 acres in New Kent County in 1704.  Joseph married the daughter of Richard Wynne in 1734 and entered into an agreement with Richard the same year to work Richard’s 900 acres while he or his wife, Elizabeth, lived. Presumably after the death of Richard and Elizabeth, Joseph and his wife inherited the land. 
I am not related to John Wilkes Booth, the Lincoln assassin, although people wonder if I am.

We depict these 4 Wilkes men as brothers although evidence of such a relationship is inconclusive. Thomas Wilkes who died in Powhatan County in 1788 may be another brother (will dated 21 March 1788  and proved 19 June 1788).

Three parishes served New Kent County: St. Peter’s, Blisland, and Stratton Major. No Wilkes are in St. Peter’s or Stratton Major and the earliest mention of a Wilkes—Thomas Wilkes—was in the Blisland Parish Vestry Book in 1775. 

Minor family
We cannot identify the mother of these Southside Wilkes.
The name, Minor Wilkes suggests a connection to a Minor family. The family of Doodes Minor (c.1640-1694) was in Middlesex County, but nothing in the published genealogies of his family shows a connection to New Kent County or the Wilkes family. 
One Joseph Minor, a contemporary of Minor Wilkes, secured a patent to 1,325 acres on Dry Creek in Lunenburg County 25 July 1749,  and married Edith Cox 11 Oct. (bond) 1750.  Yet we have not found any connection between the Minor and Wilkes families once they reached Southside.

Connection to Burwell Bassett?
Joseph Wilkes named sons Burwell Bassett Wilkes and Thomas Burwell Wilkes. Burwell Bassett (1734- 4 Jan. 1793) was a prominent Virginian. The Bassett plantation, “Eltham,” was in Blisland Parish, New Kent County, near where the Wilkes family is thought to have originated. Col. Burwell Bassett, burgess and vestryman of Blisland Parish, served in the Revolutionary War. His wife was Anna Maria Dandridge, the sister of Martha Dandridge Custis, who married George Washington after the death of her 1st husband. 
We doubt a family relationship existed between the Wilkes family and the Bassets and Burwells, and can only conclude that Joseph named his sons in admiration only of his illustrious neighbors.
Some of the Wilkes family remained in New Kent County where a Wilkes plantation was 6 miles from the courthouse. Its resident was John Wilkes, a son of Thomas Wilkes. 

Connection to John Wilkes Booth?
Some have wondered if John Wilkes Booth, the actor and Lincoln assassin, is connected to the Wilkes family of Virginia. He is not.
John Wilkes Booth was a son of Junius Brutus Booth, also an actor, who came to America from England in 1821. His father named his son in admiration for John Wilkes, an Englishman who strongly influenced the development of the rights of free speech in Great Britain in the 18th Century. You can read more about John Wilkes in The History of the English Speaking Peoples (Churchill), Vol. 3.
