     Priscilla Downman was born circa 1704 at North Farnham Parish, Richmond Co., Virginia, USA.2 She married William Heale, son of George Heale and Ellen Rogers, circa 1724; Her 1st marriage. This appears to be an error on the part of Downman Family [1909:139] and the name of Priscilla's husband was William Heale, not George Heale. See Note for additional discussion.3,4,2 Priscilla Downman married Joseph Chinn, son of Rawleigh Chinn and Esther Ball, after 9 May 1733; his 2nd wife; her 2nd husband. Per Hill [1990:46] "Priscilla Downman, widow of William Heale; 3 chdn.3,2
Priscilla Downman died after 1750.2

Priscilla Downman
There may be some confusion about who Priscilla Downman's first husband was.
     Downman Family [1909:139] says that Priscilla, dau. of William II and Million (Travers) Downman, m. Capt. George Heale. There is no reference to a 2nd marriage for Priscilla.
     Hill [1990:46] says that the Priscilla Downman who m2 Joseph Chinn (his 2nd wife) was the "widow" of William Heale.
     "Our Research" Family Tree on Rootsweb shows that Priscilla, dau. of William II and Million (Travers) Downman, m1 William Heale and m2 Joseph Chinn, citing:
