Mary Armistead died before 30 June 1775 at Virginia, USA; Per WFT E1-0756: "In the 30 June 1775 edition of the "Virginia Gazette", appeared "Died, Mrs. Mary Lightfoot at York, relict of the late Hon.

     ;      Mary married James before 16 Dec 1711, at which time she was 15 years old. James died in October 1718. In his will he appointed "my said most dear wife Mary Burwell" as an executor. This was an infrequent role for women in that day and time and indicates his high esteem for her ability.
     Mary was a widow with two small children at the age of 22. Her daughter Lucy died the next year.

     Her will written 9 Sep 1771 was probated 21 Aug 1775. In it she distributes more than 10,000 pounds Sterling, a very handsome fortune in those days, particularly for a woman.

     In her will she identifies a great number of herdescendants from both marriages. (From "Burwell Residents of King's Creek" by Paul John.)

     Philip's will was signed 31 July 1747 and proved 20 June 1748. His will is impressive reading because of the vast resources it dispenses - plantations in York, Surry, Charles City, Brunswick, Goochland, New Kent and Hanover Counties; houses, storehouses, and lots in Yorktown, Williamsburg and Blandford; more than 180 slaves.
     In his will King's Creek, the Burwell plantation in York Co. receives much attention.3

     Lewis III Burwell was born in 1699 at Fairfield, Gloucester Co., Virginia, USA.2,1 He married Martha Armistead, daughter of Honorable William Armistead and Anne Lee, in 1715; his 1st wife.1 Lewis III Burwell married Elizabeth Armistead, daughter of Honorable William Armistead and Anne Lee, circa 1724 at Gloucester Co., Virginia, USA; his 2nd wife, sister of his 1st wife.2,1
Lewis III Burwell died on 7 September 1744.2
     Lewis III Burwell lived at "Kingsmill", York Co., Virginia, USA.1

;      Lewis was a student at William and Mary in 1718. Lewis was the progenitor of the "Kingsmill" line, the third major branch of the Burwell family. There were a number of children, however only two have been identified - Lewis Burwell of Kingsmill and Armistead Burwell of Stoneland, Mecklenburg Co.
     In "Burwell Kith and Kin of the Immigrant Lewis Burwell", Stuart Brown, Jr. wrote: [Lewis] was in 1728 Naval Officer of the Upper District of James River and Collector of Customs and was a member of the House of Burgesses for Jamestown and later for James City County. He was one of the "friends and political supporters" who received large loans from John Robinson, Speaker of the House of Burgesses and Treasurer of Virginia.
     He established the riverside village of Burwell's Ferry...the ferry crossed the James River to Isle of Wight County and also served Williamsburg (the present ferry on Route 31 is upriver ten miles). During the Revolutionary War Yorktown campagin, the Burwell's Ferry area was the scene of naval activity. Burwell's Ferry had a warehouse and tavern site and Civil War fortifications."
     In 1718, Lewis' half-brother, Nathaniel (age 38), wrote a letter to another of Lewis' half-brothers, James (age 28) pertaining to Lewis' education. It gives an amusing glimpse into the concerns the older brothers had for Lewis.
     The letter read, in part: "Brother, I'm very much concerned for ye occasion of your Sending & more to see how insensible Lewis is of his own Ignorance, for he can nither read as he aught to do, nor give one letter a true shape when he writes nor spell one line of English & is altogether ignorent of Arithmetick, so that he'l be noways capable of management of his own affairs & unfit for any Gentleman's conversation, & therefore a Scandalous person & a Shame to his Relations, not having one single qualification to recommend him; if he would but apply himself heartily one year to write well, learn ye Mathematics & Consequently arithmetick of Mr. Jones, & to Translate Latin into English of Mr. Ingles to learn him to spell well, I would then take him home & imploy him till he comes of Age in my Office and Plantation Affairs that he might the better to be capable to manage his own, & to my knowledge this will be no disservice to him, & a greater than any other method he'l fall into through his own inclination; for my part, tis not advantage to me whether he be a Blockhead or a man of parts, were he not my Brother, but when I have to do with him, to schoole he shall go, & if he don't go till I can go over, he then Shall be forced to go whether he will or not & be made an example...need not Scare him, & therefore he had better go by fare means than fowl, for go he shall, & Send him forthwith. I am, Yo' Affection' Broth', N. Burwell"
     At the bottom of the letter he wrote: "Abingdon, June 13, 1718" and directly under that he wrote, "Show him this letter". We can only imagine Lewis'
reaction!2
