; 'Early Settlers of Lee Co., VA', p. 711, gives the following quote about the history of the Ball family in Virginia, but does not connect them with Richard or any of his descendents: 'The first ancestor of the well-known Ball family of VA was Colonel William Ball, who was born about 1615, died Nov. 1680, at Millenbeck, Lancaster Co., VA. He came with his family in 1650, and settled at the north of Corotonian river in Lancaster Co., VA. 'One of his sons later known as Colonel Joseph Ball, was married three times, and by his third marriage about 1675, with Margaret, daughter of Rawleigh Downman, had Joseph, later Cpatain Joseph Ball, b. 1680, d. 1721. He married Mary Spencer, daughter of Colonel Nicholas Spancer, and they were the parents of Mary Ball, mother of General George Washington. Their eldest son was Colonel Spencer Ball, of Northumberland County, VA born 1700-1705, died 1777. He married a lady by the name of Motrom. Their eldest son was Spencer Mottrom Ball. 'No relationship has been found or established between the above Ball family and the Balls that migrated to Southwestern Virginia, but it is most likely that all the Birginia Balls descend from the original stock of the prominent Ball Family of Great Britain.'

; (Book F, No.2, p56). John patented 221 acres of land on the north branch of Hunting Creek, North Neck Land Grants 2:188. He also bought 343 acres from Robert Brent, executor of Nicholas Brent, on the north side of Hunting Creek. They lived on Four Mile Run and Little Hunting Creek near Alexandria, Fairfax County, VA.
John Ball removed to Hunting Creek soon after the purchase and left a will, proved in the county court of Stafford, as shown by the index in the book in which it was recorded. This John Ball is not to be confused with a John Ball who received a land patent on the south side of Four Mile Run in 1740, and who was a neighbor of Moses Ball. According to author Charles Stetson, their relationship is not known, but they may have been cousins, since Moses Ball was the executor of neighbor John Ball's estate. His wife was Elizabeth and they had five daughters and no sons.3

John Ball left a will on 14 August 1722 at Stafford Co., Virginia, USA; Stafford County, Virginia: 14 August 1722: Will of John Ball written this date, probated 14 November 1722. His original will was destroyed among other Stafford County, Virginia records. The will was recorded in Will Book K, 1721-1730, p35. Book K is now missing from the Clerks office in Stafford County. Will location proved by the surviving Old General Index to Records of Stafford County, Virginia. There is a notarized statement by George H.S. King that the transcript is a true copy made by Thomas Gowry Strother Tyler, Clerk of Stafford County Court.

     Winifred Williams was born in 1690 at Charles Co., Maryland, USA.2,1 She married John Ball, son of Richard Ball and Elizabeth Linton, on 9 March 1710; his 2nd wife, her 1st husband.3,1 Winifred Williams married Benjamin Lawrence in 1723 at Stafford Co., Virginia, USA; her 2nd husband.1,4
Winifred Williams was buried in 1751 at Location unknown

; from FindAGrave.com:
     Birth:      1690, Charles County, Maryland, USA
     Death:      1751, Fairfax County, Virginia, USA
     Winifred was the daughter of William Williams, Jr. and Ann Harrison. Her father was from Lanterman, Charles County, Maryland who was a native of Wales. Abt.1695, her father received patents on 200 acres of land in Charles County MD, across the Potomac river from her residence in VA that she and her husband John Ball I later sold.
     Winifred was a young Welsh heiress who inherited more than 1,000 acres of land and as estate valued at almost 3,000 lbs. when her father died in 1703, which would have been desirable to any prospective husband since marriageable young women were scarce in colonial America. Winifred was Catholic like her father and wealthy. Since there was so much discrimination against Catholics at that time, both in Maryland and Virginia, marriage to a Catholic would have been a matter of security as well as a personal preference.
     Winifred married John Ball I (son of immigrant Lieut. James Ball), who was also Catholic, as his second wife on 9 Mar 1710.
     John Ball I already had four children by his first wife Sinah: James (b. ca 1695); Mary (b. ca 1698); Sinah (b. ca 1704); and Martha (b. 1708).
     Winifred and John had four children:
      Ann (b. ca 1712)
      John II (b. 1714)
      Moses (b. 2 May 1717)
      George (b. 1720)
     All of the land known to have been owned by William Williams, Jr., both in Stafford County, Virginia, (later Fairfax County) and in Charles County, Maryland, was inherited by his daughter Winifred. This suggests strongly that Winifred was the only surviving child of William Williams. Margaret Williams, to whom Ann Williams (wife of William Williams), had deeded a gift of a heifer in 1704, had probably died.
     On March 9, 1714 Winifred Williams Ball and John Ball sold land in Charles County, Maryland, that had previously belonged to Winifred's father, William Williams Jr. This suggests that Ann Williams, mother of Winifred, who had handled her husband's estate after his death had probably died.
     In John's will, he states as the last Item:
     "I give and bequeath unto my beloved wife all my Estate but what is already given, after all my honest and lawful debts be paid, to which all my stock off cattle and all my stock of horses and mares and all my household stuff of what sort soever and all my Tobacco both at home and abroad and all my debts both of Tobacco and Moneys belonging to or appertaining to me, as witness my hand and seal this 14th day of August in the year of our Lord 1722. I doe appoint my loving and dear wife Winifred Ball my lawful and whole executrix of this my last will and testament and I do desire captain Simon Peirson to assist my wife in her Executorship."
     Widow Winifred Williams Ball remarried to Mr. Benjamin Lawrence in 1723 in Stafford County, Virginia. He was born abt. 1676. They had one daughter named Pryscilla/Priscilla Lawrence. She was born in 1724 in Hunting Creek, Fairfax County, Virginia.

     Probably the single most important document in the Ball family history is the will of John Ball I. In his will John mentioned his wife, Winifred, and his eight children – James, Moses, John, Mary, Sinah (misread and transcribed as "Dinah"), Martha, Ann, and George. This will was written on August 14, 1722, and proven on November 14 1722, The surviving Old General Index to Records of Stafford County, Virginia, indicates that the original will of John Ball I was recorded in Will Book K (1721-1730), p. 35.
     This book has been missing from Stafford County records for many years. George H. S. King discovered a copy of the will in the Lloyd W. Smith Manuscript Collection, miscellaneous microfilm reel No. 315, Virginia State Library, Archives Division. However, the will is now missing from the Smith Manuscript Collection. It is indeed fortunate that King Chose to reprint the will for the article, "John Ball of Stafford County, Virginia," in the "Virginia Genealogical Society Quarterly" pages 53-57. Since this will contains a great deal of important information relative to John Ball, it is quoted verbatim below:
     In the name of God Amen: I John Ball of the county of Stafford and in the Parish of Overwharton being sick and weak but blessed be God in my perfect senses Do ordain this my last Will & Testament revoking and disnulling all other Will or Wills heretofore made by me or intended to be made in manner and form as followeth, first I resign my soul to Almighty God who gave it me, and hope that through Merits Death and passion of my Saviour Jesus Christ hope for full pardon and remission of all my sins and hope that I shall meet my Blessed Saviour in a Joyful Resurrection at the last Day. Next I desire my Body to the earth from whence it came to be decently buried by my executrix hereafter named.
     Item: I give and bequeath to my well beloved son James Ball that plantation where he now dwells and as much of that tract of land joining at both ends of the said plantation as shall make the quantity of one hundred acres to him and his heirs lawfully begotten for ever, but in default of such heirs then to fall to George Ball my youngest son to him and his heirs lawfully begotten for ever if in default of such heirs then to fall to the next male heir of the kin for ever.

     Dinah (Sinah) Ball was buried at Location unknown

; from FindAGrave.com:
     Birth:      1704, Stafford County, Virginia, USA
     Death:      unknown
     Sinah's name has been transcribed as "Dinah" and "Linah" but she was named after her mother, Sinah, which were consistent with the naming practices of the time, for both Western England and colonial America and were followed by the John Ball I family consistently for generations.
     Sinah was the second daughter and third child born to John Ball I and his first wife, Sinah. She was named after her mother. Sinah was probably born about 1704 on Little Hunting Creek in Stafford County, Virginia. When her mother died (1708/1709), her father remarried to a young Catholic Welsh heiress named Winifred Williams on 9 Mar 1710. They had four more children making them her half siblings. Sinah moved with her family to Great Hunting Creek in Stafford County between 1715 and 1717 to land John Ball I had purchased from Robert Brent, executor of Nicholas Brent in 1715.
     Sinah married James Thrift in the District of Columbia. Her given name was misread and recorded here as Linah Ball.
     She was mentioned in her father's will, dated August 14, 1722 and proven in court on November 14, 1722. The transcriber of John Ball's will read Sinah's name as Dinah. The name Dinah was extremely rare and almost non-existent in colonial America. Her father John Ball I bequeathed to her:
     "Item: I give and bequeath unto my daughter Sinah Ball all that tract of land lying on the south side of Doegg's Run joining on Richard Carpenters called Barneby, the said land I give to her heirs lawfully begotten of her body forever but in default of such heirs that then to fall to her sister Martha Ball to her and her heirs forever."

     Ann Ball was buried at Location unknown

; from FindAGrave.com:
     Birth:      1712, Stafford County, Virginia, USA
     Death:      unknown
     Ann was the oldest child of four children and only daughter of John Ball I and his second wife Winifred Williams. She was probably born about 1712 on Little Hunting Creek in Stafford county. Ann had four older half siblings by her father's first wife. Ann was probably named after Winifred's mother, Ann. She moved with her family to Great Hunting Creek in Stafford County between 1715 and 1717 to land John Ball I had purchased from Robert Brent, executor of Nicholas Brent in 1715.
     The first documented evidence of Ann Ball was her mention in her father's will dated August 14, 1722 and proven in court on November 14, 1722:
     Item: I give to my daughter Martha Ball and my daughter Ann Ball that Tract of land lying situate and being on both sides of Piney Branch containing Five Hundred Ninety five acres equally to be divided between my two daughters Martha & Ann and to their heirs lawfully begotten of their bodys for ever but in default of such heirs that then to fall to the next male heir.
     Whether or not Ann Ball, daughter of John Ball I married or had issue is unknown.
NOTE: It has been stated incorrectly that this Ann Ball married a Samuel Hawes in 1749, but in fact, an Ann Ralls of Overwharton Parish married him. This error was due to Boogher's misreading of the name Ann Ralls as Ann Ball. This error was later corrected by G.H.S. King in his compilation of the Overwharton Parish register.

     William Tunnell was born circa March 1702 at Haute-Normandie, France; FindAGrave says b Mar 1702 in Haute-Normandie.1,2 He married Anne "Lady Anne" Howard, daughter of Henry Howard and Elizabeth Moss, between 1735 and 1744 at England.3,1
William Tunnell died on 28 December 1787 at Loudoun Co., Virginia, USA; per Armstrong [1926:127]: "William Tunnel died December 28, 1787, it is thought in Loudon county, Virginia and was buried in Fairfax County."1,2
     ; The TUNNELL and other associated families in America are descendants of French Huguenots who fled France to avoid the persecution of Protestants in that country. The earliest known members of the TUNNELL family were named TONNELIER. Another person's ancestry record on the internet shows that Guillaume TONNELIER, a Frenchman, left France about 1700 and settled in Yorkshire England. His wife (name unknown), and infant son William went with him to England. Little William had at least two brothers, who also coame to America--John TONNELIER and James TONNELIER. William, John & James TONNELIER all grew to maturity in England. William married Lady Ann HOWARD. John married Lady Scarbrough, a widow. The Tonnelier brothers and their wives left England for America about 1735-1740. This person was unable to discover how they came to America. They settled in the state of Virginia where they began to raise families. In America the surname TONNELIER became TUNNEL and TUNNELL. Many decendants of these brothers live in the U.S. today.4 GKJ-5. William Tunnell was also known as Guillaume (William) Tunnellier. Guillaume Tonnelier immigrated in 1702/3 to Scarbrough, North Riding, Yorkshire, England; per Armstrong [1926:127]: "Guillaum [sic] Tonnelier ... with his wife... and a son ... settled near Scarbrough, North Riding, Yorkshire, England in 1702 or 1703."1

William Tunnell immigrated circa 1736 to Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania Co., Virginia, USA; per Armstrong [1926:127]: "About 1736 they emigrated to the English colonies in America and settled near Fredricksburg, Virginia. Later they moved to Fairfax County and lived some distance from herndon but not far from the falls of the Potomac."1

William Tunnell lived at Fairfax Co., Virginia, USA; per Armstrong [1926:127]: "About 1736 they emigrated to the English colonies in America and settled near Fredricksburg, Virginia.

     Some researchers have the mistaken idea that Moses Ball is buried at the Ball Family Burying Ground in Clarendon, Arlington VA. "The Ball Family Burying Ground sits on land acquired by John Ball in 1796, four years after Moses Ball died...evidence strongly indicates that Moses Ball was buried in the Ball-Carlin Cemetery near Four Mile Run...the cemetery is within a few yards of the land that Moses acquired in 1748 and on which he died." Dr. Doris Ball, co-author The Ball Family of the Potomac, 1654-2004 (600 pages)
     "Moses Ball was buried on his farm, which was afterwards known as Carlins, near what is now known as Glen Carlin, a part of his farm."

The letter is in possession of Mary Beth Ryan Winkler, descendant from Rev Dabney Ball line.)

     Surveyor for George Washington. In 1785 he (& other local landowners) surveyed boundaries adjacent to George Washington's property known as Washington Forest.

     Birth:      Sep. 26, 1729, Prince George's County, Maryland, USA
     Death:      Nov. 30, 1816, Fairfax County, Virginia, USA
     Ann was the daughter of Robert Cager Brashears and Charity Dowell Brashears. She married Moses Ball Sr on 23 Jun 1745 in Prince George's County, MD. They had children:
      John (b. 1746) m. Mary Ann Thrift
      Moses Ball, Jr. (1748) m. Mary Ann Hardin
      Robert (b. 1750 d. 1776) -- never married
      George (b. 1752) m. Elizabeth Tunnell
      Bazil (b. 1751 d.) m. Belinda Unknown and had children
      Anne (b. 1753 d. July 19, 1812) never married
      James (b. 1755) married Unk. and had 4 children
      Sabilla (b. 1857 d. January 4, 1817) never married
     Moses' name, wife and children's names and dates are in the Ball Bible which has been given to the Historical Society of Virginia in Arlington.
     Moses and Nancy Ann lived on Four Mile Run adjoining that of George Washington, Also, according to existing records, they did surveying together and had business dealings. General Washington mentions Moses Ball in his diary several times. Friday, April 22, 1785, he states: "Took an early breakfast at Abbington and accompanied by Dr. Stewart and Lund Washington and having sent for Moses Ball, who attended, I went to the corner of the above land." Here follows a description of a survey in which one of his servants, William, a chain carrier, fell and broke his knee pan and there was much difficulty in getting him home.
     In another diary entry, dated May 16, 1786, George Washington states: "When I returned home found Moses Ball and his son John and William Carlin here; the first having his effects under execution wanted to borrow money to redeem them; I lent him Ten Pounds for this purpose." When making his will, Moses didn't forget this loan.

     ; Source: Originally, this came from the Ancestral File. It was confirmed in part by 'Early Settlers of Lee Co., VA', p. 713, which also added the information about his wife. That page reads: '...One record from a genealogist in Washington, D.C. states that Moses had a grant from Lord Farifax and received the land in 1748 and died in 1792. His son John was born 25 Jul 1756, and died in Dec. 1814; married Mary ____ in 1773. Who could this John have been?' Apparently the author of that source missed the connection.
