     Henry Wythe Tabb pursued the study of medicine during two winters at Philadelphia, and in the spring of 1815, after visiting England and the continent of Europe, returned to England. He left Norfolk for England on the ship "Philip Tabb," owned and commanded by his brother Philip E.

Mathews Co. (Virginia)
Jany. 12, 1847

Dear Cynthia,

I cannot take leave of "Auburn" (later the home of Ellen Randolph Tabb, who married Dr. Thomas Lane) without saying something about Mr. Saunders, the overseer of that estate and Miss Betsy Thomas, the housekeeper. Some of the plantations of this State are without an overseer, and manage under the immediate supervision of the proprietor assisted by some faithful and intelligent colored servant. Dr. Tabb pays the overseer $150.00 per annum and furnishes him with a decent dwelling, a horse and a cow. He r eceives also a better supply of rations of pork and meal than the slaves and has a larger garden to cultivate for the use of his family. His pay altogether amounts to about $350.00 per annum. Miss Betsy, as we all call her, is one of the smartest women I have ever seen and is paid only $3.00 per month. At some other plantation she got the credit of having a quick and violent temper, but at Auburn I have not discerned anything of the kind and she appears to be very much attached to Ellen. Overseers and h ousekeepers are but upper servants, and have not much more intercourse with the proprietors than the slaves themselves. Miss Betsy has a room in the family mansion, but is seldom seen in the parlor. No colored servant sleeps in the same building. The housekeeper superintends and directs the other domestic servants, and her principal badge is a small white basket which she constantly carries on her arm, and in which are the keys of the closet, storerooms, cellars, etc. During two or three of the Christma s holidays, Miss Betsy was allowed to visit her friend, and Ellen supplied her place very well, and skipped about smartly with the white basket upon her arm. A few days before my arrival the Doctor killed about 60 hogs, and in a day or two afterwards he asked Miss Betsy "how much help she would want to salt the pork previous to being sent to the smoke house." She said "None, for the work has already been done." She is a good tailoress, and made up the two party dresses given by Ellen to Mary Elisa and Su san, in two days. Since then she has made 1 vest, 2 pairs of pants, 1 shirt, and 1 dress in six days, besides attending to her other duties. Very few Yankee women can go beyond this.

Henry and Phil (two colored servants) attended on the table, bring in the wood, and do other things about the house. Isabel and another black woman attend upon Ellen and the girls.

Notwithstanding the weather has been uncommonly mild for the season, a fire is made in my chamber when I go to bed and before I get up in the morning.

The Dr. I think is somewhat extravagant about his table. I told him one day "He cooked enough for a regiment of soldiers."

This I suppose is owing to frequent visits which are made from one plantation to another. His two youngest daughters, Sally and Patty, are under the charge of a Governess at "Poplar Grove" with some other ladies. The Dr. contributes $300.00 per annum towards the expenses of this Governess. Mary Elisa spends some of her time also with her Grandmother at "Poplar Grove." Then we often have but four at our table upon which you will find perhaps, a round of beef, a roast saddle of mutton, a boiled ham, beef steak and oysters cooked in a variety of ways. The desert consists of a pudding, pies, walnuts, almonds, grapes and (sometimes) oranges. Wine is then introduced and when each one drinks his glass, it is the signal for retiring.

I arrived at "Auburn" on Sunday the 20th. On Tuesday was the first party of the season and it was given by Dr. Tabb. The rooms were decorated with holly and other evergreens, and every lamp and candle stick was put in requisition. In addition to which narrow strips of boards were laced over the passages, perforated with holes to hold additional lights. The doors inside were thrown open and it was like an illumination. The party began to assemble about 7 and the dancing, eating, and drinking were kept up until 2 in the morning. The gentlemen were intelligent and good looking and the ladies very handsome and very accomplished.


Excerpts from the next letter.


Mathews Co., Virginia
Jany. 9, 1847

Standing in the wide entry on the second floor, which runs through the center of the building, upon a pleasant day the view from the windows is very pleasant. Looking towards the North, you see the cultivated fields with white cottages of the laborers scattered about the farm, and in the background a beautiful grove of tall pines. Towards the South the eye rests upon the lawn leading toward the river, the river itself sparkling in the sun, and beyond the white dwelling, tall poplars and distant forests b elonging to the Bellville estate. East of the dwelling house at Auburn, and within the same enclosure stands a two story brick building, painted like the first, in which is the kitchen and rooms for servants. The only novelty about it is the dinner bell suspended over the south door. Near to this house are the meat and poultry buildings and fattening cribs. At the North East corner of the enclosure stands the weaving shop, with a tenement on the second floor. The negro clothing is made upon the estate, the spinning and weaving being by the old men and women servants. Within another enclosure near the water, stands the barn, coach house, stable, granary, carpenter shop, tool house, and other buildings. Nearer still to the river, is a building open at the sides, but covered by a roof, under which are four or five boats or canoes, and a lighter for carrying heavy loads.

West of the Mansion house is the garden, a large one enclosed by a white ornamental fence. In the center of which is an arbor covered to profusion with Greville and Multifloral roses. Round the borders are planted fruit and ornamental trees, among which are the apple, pear, peach plum, cherry, fig and pomegranate trees, fruit, and lilac, flowering almond, alfhea, hydrangea, Scotch broom, etc; among the ornamental kind. I should not omit the grape, strawberry and celery beds, raspberries, currants, etc. , etc.

At the S.W. corner of the garden stand the bee hives. Nearly every day since my arrival, the girls have brought me rose buds, violets, and lilies from the garden. Yesterday I saw a mocking bird upon one of the trees, and I regret to say that the Dr. shot seven last summer. As an excuse for doing so he said, "They destroyed his grapes." Ellen says they sing most sweetly during the live long night. The ice house stands about 200 yards from the Mansion in a North Easterly direction, and is on e of the mo st ornamental buildings upon the estate. It rises from the green mound of earth, it has a circular form painted white, with a circular pointed roof surmounted by an ornamental cap. All the estates enumerated on the first page have them, and in some cased the dairies are constructed in the same manner.

Since I have been in Virginia, I do not remember that I have heard the words negro and slave used at all, the colored population are uniformly called "servant." Dr. Tabb has about 100 of them, valued at about $400.00 each. I may have put this too low, for two female children were sold at auction when I was in Norfolk at $300.00 each. $775.00 was offered for an ordinary field hand in our neighborhood last week. I do not think the Dr. would sell his carpenter, bricklayer, butcher or coach-man for $1500.0 0 each. They all live very comfortably. Each one has a half pound of bacon and pint of molasses or whiskey a day and about a peck of meal a week, they are also furnished with comfortable housed and clothing as well taken care of when sick. Besides these necessaries of life they have a garden each, dwelling, and keep as much poultry as they please, and in a few house after work they provide themselves with fish from the river and such oysters as would sell in Bo ston at three cents each. On of the annoyan ces to the Planters in the counties of Mathews and Gloucester is the number of boats, small clipper built schooners which frequent the rivers for the purpose of getting oysters. The law of the state is that no vessel shall be allowed to carry away more than 30 bushels; but the law is evaded every day, and the negroes fish for them during the night when they get but little compensation for their labor, and are imposed upon by the masters of these vessels who pay them trifling articles at an exorbitan t price .

The regular work done by the field hands which I have witnessed such as ploughing and making compost beds for manure could not be better done by the white laborers in the North, and the young black legged children do nothing but eat, sleep and laugh. The real black African is good natured and active, but those who are slightly tinged with white are more surly than I expected to find them. In New England, committees are appointed by our Agricultural Societies to visit the farms in each county. if such a thing were done here I think that "Auburn" would be considered the pattern or premium farm. So much for Ellen's home over which she is mistress, and I am happy to say she and her husband are devoted to each other, and are most respected by all who know them. In addition to the Auburn estate the Dr. owns a plantation called Oakland containing about 100 acres, more than one half of which is heavily timbered with white oak and hard pines. It has two cheap dwelling houses and necessary out buildings upon it , and is in charge of an overseer. Since my arrival a shipbuilder from Maine has paid $3400.00 for the privilege of cutting the white oak from a small part of it. This was originally part of the great Van Bibber property. He also owns a tract of a few hundred acres of woodland in another part of the county, and has been offered by another yankee $600.00 for a hundred trees.

His three daughters will probably have a portion of the Poplar Grove estate, which is now owned by Mrs. Tompkins the mother of his second wife. He is one of thirty gentlemen who own that part of Dismal Swamp (about 30,000 acres) lying in Virginia. It is under the care of an agent and furnishes every year large quantities of cypress and cedar shingles, the annual dividend is about 10 to 12 percent. He is also the part owner of a cotton factory at Richmond which rents for $800.00 annually. Still of his s urviving brothers he has the least wealth, Capt. Philip Tabb the owner of Waverly formally followed the seas, and is much richer than the Doctor. His brother John Tabb, formally a wealthy and distinguished merchant at Norfolk is richer.

(From papers of Cousin Effie McIntire copied January 14, 1938. These letters were written by Adam Foster to his daughter Cynthia Claxton.) Ellen was born at Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts, on 29 October 1828. She married Dr. Henry Wythe Tabb at Brooklyn, Kings County, New York, on 6 October 1846.1 Ellen died on 5 February 1858 at 'Auburn', Mathews County, Virginia, at age 29.2 Her body was interred after 5 February 1858 at Gloucester County, Virginia, at Ware Church.

William James Hubard

M, b. 20 August 1807, d. 15 February 1862
Last Edited31 Jul 1999
     "William James Hubard came from England before the War between the States. On reaching Gloucester County, Virginia, he painted several portraits of the Tabb family, and married my mother's first cousin, Miss Maria Mason Tabb. He moved to Richmond and had a home on what is now the corner of Park Avenue and Shafer streets. In those days that part of the city was all bare fields, and no other persons lived near that I knbow of. Across the road from his home in the middle of a field he built a studio where he did a good deal of painting. He assisted Captain John Mercer Brooke in constructing the first, famous Brooke gun, many of which were used by the Confederate forces. Tradition has it that the first gun of this type was mounted on the ironclad Virginia. Later Hubard was casting shells for this gun when one of them exploded. He was fearfully burned and all the contents of the studio destroyed. His son, William, was the first person to reach the scene on hearing the explosion; he carried his father to the house where he died in a short while, on February 17, 1862. Someone immediately brought the news to my parents (Judge and Mrs. William W. Crump), and they went out and ministered to the bereaved family. Hubard's property was confiscated by the United States Government after the war closed, and his wife and two children returned to Gloucester. He is buried in Hollywood Cemetery, Richmond, Virginia."

The above was written by Mrs. William B. Lightfoot of Richmond, Virginia, whose mother was Miss Mary Tabb of Gloucester County, Virginia. It is published in Virginia Historical Portraiture 1585-1830, by Alexander Wilbourne Weddell, on page 417. William was born at Warwick, England, on 20 August 1807.1 He married Maria Mason Tabb at Ware Church, Gloucester County, Virginia, in 1837.2 His body was interred in February 1862 at Richmond, Henrico County, Virginia, at Hollywood Cemetery.1 William died on 15 February 1862 at Richmond, Henrico County, Virginia, at age 54.1
