Joseph Sievely got a land grant from Lord Fairfax in the Shenandoah Valley about 1750.


Joseph arrived in Philadelpohia on Sept. 30, 1743 on ship "Robert and Alice", commanded by Hartley Cussack, from Rotterdam, Holland and Cowes, England.


They were from Switzerland, and they fled to Germany during the Reformation

Sivley is a German name with permutations of Sibley, Scheibly, Ziebly, Scheible. Earliest record in Pennsylvania is 1731.
Faye J. Sivley says the original name was Ziebly in Germany.

A will in Frederick Co., Virginia dated 1761, John Sivley is named in Lawrence Butler's will.

A land lease in Frederick Co., Virginia: from Lord Fairfax to Joseph Sievley and
sons, John and Adam.

From Judy Sivley 1999:
"In 1743 Joseph sailed from Rotterdam on the ship "Robert Alice". He leased 650 acres of land in Fredrick County, Virginia from Lord Fairfax. Joseph was listed as a Lutheran. Later the family became Methodists. In Rotterdam the family name had been spelled Zievely. It is believed that they had come originally from Germany. Perhaps they had gone to Rotterdam to escape religious persecution as many protestants had at that time. Often many of the earliest Sivleys could not read nor write and therefore the name is spelled many different ways, often this makes it hard to trace our ancestors.

"One of Joseph's sons was Jacob (our line). He had five siblings. All of them had immigrated to Pennsylvania and were called Pennsylvania Dutch. [Note: if Joseph settled in Fredrick County, Virginia, when did his sons leave to go to Pennsylvania? Also see the following ]. Later they all moved to Virginia. Most of the boys had also fought in the Revolution. ....Sivley's were among the the early settlers of the Pennsylvania Dutch. The first Sivley found on record in this country is in 1731, therefore the name could have been spelled differently.

"One of the brothers (Peter) settled in Tennessee. Jacob also went to Jefferson County, Tennessee then to Madison County, Alabama. Joseph Jr. possibly to Kentucky. And yet records show a Joseph Seevily still in Rockingham County in 1810 [Joseph Jr.?] Two of the sisters who married Walters (brothers or cousins?) went to Texas with spouses. Eve's second husband, George Safely (Saffley) was still in Rockingham County, Virginia in 1810.

"Records also show a Joseph Aldorpha (Alldaffer) who married a Margaret Sivley who was still in Rockingham County, Virginia in 1810.

"1815-George Safely and Joseph Aldorpha were involved in Catherine Seavly's bond when she died in Rockingham County, Virginia.

"The earliest Sivley found in records to date is listed in a will in Frederick County, Virginia. Lawrence Butler mentions John Sivley in his will dated 1731, but does not state the relationship. The next one on record is also in Frederick County, Virginia. That is the leasing of the 650 acres mentioned above. This mentions Joseph having had two sons--John and Adam and is dated 1761.

"Records show Joseph Seivley 1785 leaving in his will things to each of his children and his widow. In 1783 the census shows Catherine Sievley as head os house with nine in family, showing that Joseph had been dead at least two years. Joseph may have had brothers in Shenandoah County, Virginia, ther is a Mathias Sivy listed with 10 in the family. In Wilkes County, Georgia 1796 there is an Abraham Sivley and wife Judith, six children and their married names (John Sivley m. to Lucy Wilcher 1807; Sara Sivley m. Robert Woodruff 1799; Dolford Sivley m. Elza Edmunds 1801; William Sivley m. Barbara Loggins 1800; Stephen Sivley and Adalford Sivley.) The John Sivley in the 1731 will may also have been Joseph's brother or could have been his father."

Old Sievely Family

Scheibly,Scheible,Ziebly,Sively,Sivley and Scivally are some the ways that the families spell their name. In Rockingham County , Va.( where Catherine move after Joseph died) The name was spell this way: Seftly;Siefle.

As I tell the many lives of the family you will see who spell it which way.

I start by tell you about ETHEL SIVELY MOORE. She published two books on the family (reprinted 1975). “Lost Links” tells of JOSEPH SIEVELY coming to U.S from Germany in 1743. I trace the Joseph in the RUPP’S THIRTY THOUSAND IMMIGRANTS. JOESPH” Ziebly” arrived Philadelphia, Sept 30 1743 on the “ROBERT AND ALICE” under HARDLY Cussack, Commander, from Rotterdam last from Cowes. Schieble is German spelling for Sievely. A German friend of my, tells that me with way we pronounce our name in English the German spelling most be Schieble. Scheible family comes from Knittlingen, Baden-Wuertemberg, Germany or that general area around Maulbronn. They were from Switzerland, and they fled to Germany during the Reformation

I know that Joseph Sievely married Catharine. It is know that they married in Pa and stay there for a time. Went they move to Va. They had some of their children with them. The earliest Sively Found in our records to date is listed in a will in Frederick, Co. (it is best note at this time that the counties in Virginia change names a lot. Shenandoah County was the following: 1721-1734 SPOTSYLVANIA, 1734-1745 ORANGE COUNTY,1743-1772 FREDERICK,1745-1753 AUGUSTA COUNTY, AND 1772- UP SHENANDOAH COUNTY( NAMED DUNMORE) This sent to me by Joe Baker who search the records for me in Virginia).LAWRENCE BULTER mentions John Sively in his will dated 1731 but not states what his relationship was to John Sivley.( It is thought that this could he Joseph brother).

Book named " LIFE ALONG HOLMAN'S CREEK” by j Floyd Wine.

Lease agreements for Fairfax land were not all recorded. One interesting one on record was my by Fairfax to Joseph Siveley and two sons on Sept 29, 1761 for 640 acres. The indenture states that the lease will be in effect " during the natural lives of him the died Joseph, Adam Sively and John Sively his sons and longest liver of them yielding and paying yearly rent and every year on the 29th day of Sept. The sum of 40 shillings was to be paid. If it shall happen that all or any part of the said yearly rent shall be behind and unpaid for the space of two months in any one year... the said Thomas Lord Fairfax can reenter and reclaim the said leased land." I now have copy of map of Early Land Grants, Leases and Patents. Thanks to Our cousin Katherine Smith.

Bk 6 pg. 420, 29 Sept. 1761 [Lease] Between the Right Honorable Thomas Lord Fairfax Baron of Cameron [to] Joseph Sively of parish & County of Frederick Yeoman ... for and in consideration of Rents & covenants herein after Expressed ... grant to Farm Let unto said Joseph Sively ... Tract of Land Situate lying and being on the Head of Holeman’s Creek and joining the Boundary Line between his Majesty and his Lordship ... containing by a Survey made thereof Six Hundred & forty Acres ... corner to Land Surveyed for Widow Hill Corner to Land Surveyed for Thomas Holman ... for and during the natural lives of him said Joseph Sively Adam Sively and John Sively his Sons Yielding and paying yearly on 29th Sept. the Sum of Forty Shillings

Wit: Gabriel Jones ----- Fairfax Thos Rutherford ---Joseph Sively ((ZE)

Recorded: 2 Dec. 1761

Joseph Sively apparently was living on the land as early as 1752-3 as his widow Catherine, stated in a deposition in 1791, that her husband had obtained and Entry for said tract of land from Lord Fairfax 38 or 39 years ago.

The next mention is also Frederick County, Virginia. It is a lease for 650 acres of land from LORD FAIRFAX to JOSEPH SIEVELY and mentions two son John and Adam. It is dated 1761.This farm was near FORESTVILLE in Shenandoah Co. VA. The land lay on the head of a branch of Holman’s Creek— Adj. the Widow Hill, Wm . McClain and Thomas Hilman, NW of Timber Ridge. The New Market, VA. quadrangle top graphic map (U.S. Geology Survey) is the map for this location. *Joseph "Ziebly" Sievely in Shennadoah County, VA was Farmer. Joseph was a grain and cattle framer. He provides beef for the Army during the revolutionary War. * This another story the like to tell, but I have no proof on this. If someone has this proof of the Joseph records for the beef to army. Please let me know.
