Richard Doggett died on 20 June 1721 at Lancaster Co., Virginia, USA.1,3

His estate was probated on 8 November 1721 at Lancaster Co., Virginia, USA,
;
From "Doggetts and Other Cousins":
     "His will was dated 20 Jun 1721 and was presented in Court on 8 Nov 1721 by the widow, Elizabeth Doggett, and was proved by oath of Hannah Stevens, one of the witnesses. Additional proof was made on 10 Jan 1721/2 by Edwin Conway, the other witness. The will appointed Elizabeth as executor and the court ordered her to produce an inventory of Richard's estate at the next session of the court. An inventory was filed by Elizabeth on 11 Jul 1722..."
     "Richard's will provided that if Elizabeth should remarry his son George should succeed her as executor.On 8 Mar 1726/7, George was appointed executor if place of Elizabeth, and on 14 Jun 1727 a new inventory of the estate was filed. The will provided that his son Bushrod should receive a negro slave named Tom, that his widow should have a life estate in all the property, and that on her death or remarriage the personal estate should be divided equally among all the children, except that his daughter Ann should get only a half-share because she had received some gifts during her lifetime.The residuary estate in the land is not disposed of by the will, and presumably went according to the law of descent to the eldest son, George. The daughter Apphia is not mentioned by name in the will."
     Reference:
From "Doggetts and Other Cousins":
     "Richard Doggett was the second surviving son of the Rev. Benjamin Doggett and his wife Jane, and the first of their children born in Virginia. He is believed to have been born about 1672. As the parish register of Christ Church Parish in Lancaster County has been lost, no documentary evidence of his birth date exists. However, Rev. Benjamin, in his will refers to his "2 sons born in Virginia," and his birth does not appear in the register of Hadleigh parish in Suffolk, so we are sure that he was born after his mother came to Virginia to join her husband.
     "Richard is named in his father's will as devisee of one hundred acres of land, being a part of the 350 acre plantation owned by his father. (See 100 Benjamin Doggett (2) for a discussion of the litigation concerning this property.) As a 150 acre portion containing the improvements was left to his older brother Benjamin, the will provided for "seating" of the property, that is, building a dwelling and other improvements on the property, and for purchase of one or more indentured servants, as his share of the tobacco belonging to the estate would permit, to farm the land. A similar portion of unimproved land was devised to Richard's brother William.
     "The will further provided that Richard, his brother William, and his sister Anne should live with their older brother Benjamin until they could live on their own, and their is some evidence in court records that Richard was in fact cared for by Benjamin. In February 1687/8, when Richard was about 15 years of age, Benjamin brought a lawsuit in Lancaster County Court against John Boatman, who married Jane Doggett after Rev. Benjamin's death, complaining that Boatman had broken a contract with Richard to pay him one-half of the crops produced by Richard laboring in the fields on Boatman's plantation, for the purpose of providing clothing for Richard's use. The court found that Boatman did in fact owe Richard a share of the corn and tobacco harvested, and ordered that it be delivered by Boatman to Benjamin so that clothing could be provided for Richard.
     "Sometime in the 1690's, Richard was married to Elizabeth Bushrod, daughter of Richard and Apphia Bushrod. Richard first appears in Lancaster County tax lists in 1702, and it as probable that at least his son George was born by that date. No direct evidence has been found proving that Richars's wife Elizabeth was in fact the daughter of Richard Bushrod, but family genealogists over the years have been in almost universal agreement that this was her identity. This presumption is based on the fact that their younger son was named "Bushrod," a most unusual name which occurs only in descendants of the Bushrod family, and upon a court proceeding recorded in Lancaster County in December 1722. In that case, Thomas Carter, gent., one of the Justices of the Court, testified that "Ann Burn, widow, Elizabeth Doggett, widow, Mary Tayloe, Apphia Dogget, Julian Boyd and George Dogget of this County on the night of the sixteenth day of November last unlawfully assembled & frightned & disturbed divers of his Majesty's good subjects." On 13 Feb 1722/23, each of the defendants was fined five shillings. No other information about this intriguing incident has been brought to light. George Doggett and Apphia Doggett are clearly children of Elizabeth. Again, Apphia is a given name of great rarity at that time and place, and clearly supports the inference that Elizabeth was a daughter of Apphia Bushrod.
     "Richard died about October 1721, in Lancaster County, Virginia. His will was dated 20 Jun 1721 and was presented in Court on 8 Nov 1721 by the widow, Elizabeth Doggett, and was proved by oath of Hannah Stevens, one of the witnesses. Additional proof was made on 10 Jan 1721/2 by Edwin Conway, the other witness. The will appointed Elizabeth as executor and the court ordered her to produce an inventory of Richard's estate at the next session of the court. An inventory was filed by Elizabeth on 11 Jul 1722.
     "Some time prior to 8 Mar 1726/7, Elizabeth married Charles Chilton. This fact is established by a suit in Lancaster County Court between Charles Chilton and Elizabeth his wife late widow of Richard Doggett against George Doggett, the successor executor of Richard's will. The case was evidently settled out of court and was dismissed on 12 Aug 1730, with neither party appearing in court. Charles Chilton died in Lancaster County about September 1739. His will does not mention his wife, and therefore it is probable that Elizabeth died before the date of Chilton's will, 24 Aug 1739.
     "Richard's will provided that if Elizabeth should remarry his son George should succeed her as executor.On 8 Mar 1726/7, George was appointed executor if place of Elizabeth, and on 14 Jun 1727 a new inventory of the estate was filed.
     "The will provided that his son Bushrod should receive a negro slave named Tom, that his widow should have a life estate in all the property, and that on her death or remarriage the personal estate should be divided equally among all the children, except that his daughter Ann should get only a half-share because she had received some gifts during her lifetime.The residuary estate in the land is not disposed of by the will, and presumably went according to the law of descent to the eldest son, George. The daughter Apphia is not mentioned by name in the will."1

In Rev. Benjamin Doggett's will dated 14 March 1681 at Lancaster Co., Virginia, USA, Richard Doggett was named as an heir;
Per "Dogetts and Other cousins":
     "Benjamin died in Lancaster County in 1682 or 1683, leaving a will of record dated 14 Mar 1681/2. The will was probated in Lancaster County in January 1682/3. See transcript of will.
     "The will divides the 350 acre plantation between his three sons, Benjamin, Richard and William, with Benjamin receiving 150 acres and the two younger sons receiving 100 acres each. His wife Jane was given the use of the land until remarriage. His daughter Anne was given personal property, to be given in two equal annual installments, provided she did not marry before reaching age 18. As she had to be nearly 18 at the time the will was drawn, this would not seem to have been a serious problem for her.
     "The reference in the will to Benjamin's daughter Jane is intriguing. "I give unto my daughter Jane Doggett in England twenty shillings and no more because she hath been detained from me and is surely provided for." We can speculate from this that Benjamin was not happy with the fact that Jane had not come to America with the family. Perhaps she had physical or mental infirmities that made it unwise for her to attempt to make the arduous trip to America, and she may have been kept by Benjamin's wife's family or may have been institutionalized.
     "Benjamin also provided in his will for payment of his debts to George Flowers and to Robert Griggs, primarily out of tobacco, but also out of the sale of planks sawed out of timber on the plantation, and of the sale of pipe staves. Pipe staves were used to make pipes or casks of wood in which tobacco was shipped to England, and may have been hewn from timber on Benjamin's plantation.
     "Benjamin had accumulated a library for use in performing his ministerial duties, and otherwise. Apparently there was not a good market for these books in Virginia, and Benjamin directed that the books be appraised, that a "great chest" be bought, and the books be packed up and sent to England to be sold. The money realized from the sale was to be used to help pay the debt to Robert Griggs, and if there was any surplus, the money was to be used by his widow to buy a mourning ring with the inscription "Follow Me." The purchase of mourning rings bearing memorial inscriptions was a popular custom at the time, and the rings could be quite valuable. The two executors were given 20 shillings to purchase mourning rings also.
     "Benjamin directed that he be buried beneath the chancel in St. Mary's Whitechapel church. As it is believed that the present church was built a hundred yards or so from the original location, we do not know whether his remains were reinterred when the new church was built, but we would hope that this was the case.

Inventory above estate rec. 11 July 1782 by Elizabeth Doggett, widow. W.B. 10, p. 389.2,1 He was listed as a beneficiary in Richard Doggett's will on 8 November 1721 at Lancaster Co., Virginia, USA;
From "Doggetts and Other Cousins":
     "His will was dated 20 Jun 1721 and was presented in Court on 8 Nov 1721 by the widow, Elizabeth Doggett, and was proved by oath of Hannah Stevens, one of the witnesses. Additional proof was made on 10 Jan 1721/2 by Edwin Conway, the other witness. The will appointed Elizabeth as executor and the court ordered her to produce an inventory of Richard's estate at the next session of the court. An inventory was filed by Elizabeth on 11 Jul 1722..."
     "Richard's will provided that if Elizabeth should remarry his son George should succeed her as executor.On 8 Mar 1726/7, George was appointed executor if place of Elizabeth, and on 14 Jun 1727 a new inventory of the estate was filed. The will provided that his son Bushrod should receive a negro slave named Tom, that his widow should have a life estate in all the property, and that on her death or remarriage the personal estate should be divided equally among all the children, except that his daughter Ann should get only a half-share because she had received some gifts during her lifetime.The residuary estate in the land is not disposed of by the will, and presumably went according to the law of descent to the eldest son, George. The daughter Apphia is not mentioned by name in the will."

Rev. Benjamin Doggett died between 12 June 1682 and 1683 at Lancaster Co., Virginia, USA.1,4

His estate was probated in September 1683 at Lancaster Co., Virginia, USA,
;
Per "Dogetts and Other cousins":
     "An inventory and appraisal of the Rev. Benjamin's estate was made the following September and recorded in Lancaster County records. It is interesting that the appraisal was not made by the appraisers named in the will but by four neighbors and substantial citizens: Nicholas George, Stephen Chilton, Thomas Tomson, and John Davis. The inventory of the personal property had an appraised value of 11,610 pounds of tobacco (not including the cattle, which for some unexplained reason were not appraised), and consisted primarily of household goods of little value. The most valuable items listed were "one Trunck of Bookes," appraised at 2000 pounds of tobacco, and three horses, appraised at 2700 pounds of tobacco. The inventory does not reflect ownership of any slaves, but does include two indentured servants, a man having 27 days to serve and a woman having two months to serve."

It is therefore ordered that the said BOATEMAN in right of his said Wife bee possessed of the thirds of their parts of the said Land, hee paying one third part of the charges."4


Reference:
Per "Dogetts and Other cousins":
     "Benjamin's father was a merchant in Ipswich, Suffolk, engaged in the selling of woolen and other common fabrics, and his mother was the daughter of Geoffrey Langley, a grocer and alderman of Colchester, Essex, a city not far from Ipswich, and his wife, Ann Carter, of Walton-on-the Naze, a nearby Essex seacoast town.
     "From records of St. John's College and the University of Cambridge, we know that Benjamin attended a private school in Westminster (now a part of London) with a Mr. Crouch as headmaster. He was admitted to St. John's College, University of Cambridge, on 27 Jan 1654/5, and matriculated at the University on 7 April 1655. His name is recorded as "Benj. Dodggett" which may indicate the pronunciation of the Doggett surname used by him, although later documents use the spelling "Doggett" or "Dogget," except in one instance where the name is spelled "Daggott." He was admitted to the college as a sizar, which meant that he did not pay full tuition for his education, but served as a servant to an upperclassman who, in turn, acted as tutor and surety for the behavior of the sizar. Benjamin's tutor was William Twyne, son of Anthony Twyne of Walton, Surrey, who was a candidate for the degree of Bachelor of Divinity, which he received in 1660. Rev. Twyne undoubtedly played an important part in the early education of Benjamin as an Anglican minister.
     "On 3 November 1657, Benjamin was admitted as a "Scholar," being one of two such rerpresenting Suffolk County, as the county of his birth. A Scholar was a junior member of the college corporate society, ranking below the Headmaster and the Fellows. A Scholar received what is now called a "scholarship" which paid all his tuition and expenses. The records of St. John's College show that his scholarship was from the main College foundation. It seems then that his sizarship terminated after two years. It may well be that he had a sizar of his own to help with his household duties in exchange for tutoring the sizar, although we do not have any evidence to support such a conclusion.
     "In December 1658, Benjamin received the degree of Bachelor of Arts from the University. Benjamin continued his studies for the ministry at St. John's and received the degree of Master of Arts on 16 Mar 1661/62. Benjamin affixed his signature to the oath required by the University, which may be the only actual signature of Benjamin presently in existence. This signature clearly spells his surname as "Doggett." The Registers of Seniority recorded in University records show that Benjamin was an average student, ranking slightly below the middle of the graduates for both the Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees. Benjamin's uncles, Thomas and Richard, had attended St. John's and Emmanuel Colleges, respectively, as pensioners (full tuition payers) and his cousin William, son of Thomas Doggett, had attended Queen's College at Cambridge as sizar, but it does not appear that his father or any of his brothers attended college, but rather pursued careers as merchants. Benjamin's mother's brother, Geoffrey Langley, had received his Master of Arts degree at Christ's College at Cambridge in 1623, and was rector of the church of Stoke St. Mary, in Ipswich, from 1623 to 1626.
     "Following receipt of his Master of Arts degree, Benjamin was ordained as an Anglican minister, and was appointed as curate of a church in the small village of Stoke-by-Clare in west Suffolk. Benjamin's cousin, William Doggett, had been appointed as vicar of that church in 1661, and was therefore entitled to receive the "living" from the parish, but apparently did not desire to act as the resident minister. William then apparently arranged for Benjamin to act as curate in his stead. Benjamin did not stay long in Stoke-by-Clare, and by 1664 was acting as curate and schoomaster of the much larger church in Hadleigh, Suffolk, where he continued as minister until emigrating to Virginia in 1669.
     "On 21 Sep 1664, the Rev. Benjamin was married in Hadleigh to a young widow, Jane Garrard. The identity of Jane's first husband and parents are uncertain, although the death of a Charles Garrard is recorded in the Hadleigh parish register as occurring 10 Apr 1664. Benjamin's first child, his son Benjamin, was born in Hadleigh the following year, in 1665. Three more children were born in Hadleigh, according to entries in the parish register. These were his daughter Jane, born in 1667, his son William, baptised 19 Nov 1668, and his son John, baptised 3 Mar 1669/70. Of these four children, William died as an infant, as his burial is recorded in the parish register on 24 Nov 1668.
     "Sometime before January 1669/70, Benjamin left Hadleigh and emigrated to the colony of Virginia. He had received the appointment of the Bishop of London to be the minister of Trinity parish in Lancaster County. We do not know the reason for his decision to emigrate, but things were not easy for the clergy in England at that time, following the rule of Cromwell and the restoration of the monarchy. Benjamin did not have permanent tenure at Hadleigh, but was only a curate for the Dean of Bocking, who had the living as rector of the parish. From a power of attorney recorded in Lancaster County records, we know that Benjamin's brother, Richard, an Ipswich merchant, traded with Lancaster County merchants, and had perhaps learned from them that there was an opening for a minister in that county, and made Benjamin aware of the opportunity. In any event, the decision was made. It appears that Benjamin's wife Jane did not accompany him to America, but came later, as she was expecting son John who was born in England in March 1669/70. We do know from Benjamin's will that for reasons unknown his daughter Jane was left behind in England, perhaps for medical reasons. Although his son John predeceased the Rev. Benjamin, it seems probable that he died in Virginia, as his death is not recorded in the Hadleigh parish register. We are certain only that his wife and son Benjamin emigrated to Virginia.
     "Soon after his arrival in Lancaster County and commencement of his ministry at Christ Church, the Rev. Benjamin founded a second church in the western part of the county which was named St. Mary's White Chapel Church, and he served as minister of both churches. We assume that he preached in the two churches on alternate weeks and that vestrymen acted as lay readers in his absence. Because the churches in Virginia were under the jurisdiction of the Bishop of London, the episcopal authority was not as strong as in England, and the vestries exercised more power and control over the clergy. As a minister only obtained permanent tenure by recommendation of the vestry and appointment of the governor, the vestry could retain control by failing to present the minister for appointment. However, Benjamin apparently made a good impression on the vestry and the congregations, as in 1670 he was presented to the governor of the colony for appointment as minister of the two churches of Trinity Parish. Soon thereafter the parish was divided into two separate parishes of Christ Church and St. Mary's Whitechapel, with Benjamin as minister of both parishes. Some time after Benjamin's death, the two original wooden churches were torn down and new brick churches were erected. Much of the cost of the new Christ Church building was contributed by the very wealthy Carter family, and the Ball family, including George Washington's grandfather, were the leading members of the St. Mary's Whitechapel congregation.
     "Three more children were born to Benjamin and Jane in Virginia. The parish register of Christ Church has been lost, so we do not know the exact dates of the births of the children. We believe that their son Richard was born about 1672 and that their daughter Anne was born about 1674. The youngest child, William, was born about 1676. As mentioned, the son John, born in England, predeceased Benjamin, but as his death is not recorded in the Hadleigh parish register, he may have accompanied his parents to Virginia and died there.
     "In 1680, Benjamin purchased a 350 acre plantation from George Flowers, with a mortgage to Robert Griggs. In addition to his income, paid in tobacco, from the two parishes, Benjamin farmed this land and other land in Christ Church parish, using hired or indentured servants, raising tobacco and corn, along with cattle and pigs."
     "County records of Lancaster County and adjoining Northumberland County contain numerous documents pertaining to the Rev. Benjamin. The earliest document, a power of attorney witnessed by Benjamin, is dated 28 Jan 1669/70 and was recorded in Lancaster County on 1 February. This document places Benjamin's emigration to Virginia at some time prior to 28 January. Many of the other recorded documents involve suits on notes, usually payable in tobacco, on behalf of or against Benjamin. Some of the suits were decided in favor of him and some against him. One suit raises an interesting question for which we do not have an answer. In November 1677, an action was commenced by Capt. Richard Taylor, attorney of Richard Doggett, against Benjamin Doggett. We must assume that the Richard Doggett in question was the brother of Benjamin in England. We do not know whether this was a "friendly" suit or whether real differences existed between the brothers.
     "In many of the documents of record, Benjamin is referred to by the honorific title of "Mr." The use of that title was restricted to members of the gentry who did not use their military ranks, who were not members of the knighthood, or who were entitled to bear coats of arms and used the designation "Esq." or "Armiger." It was essentially equivalent to the designation "gentleman." Free citizens of somewhat lesser social standing were usually referred to by their occupations, such as "planter," "merchant," "carpenter," and the like. Although Benjamin's very modest economic circumstances would not place him in the gentry class, his profession and education entitled him to be called "Mr. Doggett." The use of that honorific title was not used by the person himself, but by third persons. In documents executed by Benjamin, such as his will, he refers to himself simply as "minister."
     "One type of offense which frequently came to the attention of the justices of the County Court, acting in their capacities as criminal magistrates, was the matter of verbal or physical abuse of a citizen, and particularly abuse of a member of the gentry by a person of lesser social standing. Rev. Benjamin was the victim in three cases of record in Lancaster County. The first, in September 1672, is somewhat unusual. In that case, a man named William Hughs, who seems to have been an indentured servant of Mr. Edward Carter, took a "servant maid" belonging to Benjamin from Benjamin's house. It does not appear that the lady involved objected to being "taken," and it would seem that she became part of Carter's household, probably as the wife of Hughs. In any event, Benjamin sued Hughs and, perhaps as the result of a settlement with Carter, he was awarded judgment for 2800 lbs. of tobacco, to be paid by Carter and Hughs. This would indicate that Carter probably took over the indenture for the "servant maid" and paid Benjamin the value of the contract. In the same proceeding, Hughs was found guilty of abusing Benjamin "by words." According to the court order, Hughes apologized to Benjamin and asked his forgiveness. Benjamin accepted the apology and withdrew his complaint but Hughes was ordered to pay costs.
     "The second case was in September 1674, when the court found that one Stephen Wills "did abuse Benjamin Doggett, minister." Wills was sentenced to be placed in the stocks until he was sober and then to receive 30 lashes.
     "The third case, in 1682, involved one Thomas Herbert, an indentured servant of Benjamin. Herbert was convicted of "lifting up his hande against his saide Master," and was ordered "for his contempt forthwith to receive twenty Lashes on his bare backe well laide on, the Sheriff to see the same executed." Offenses by indentured servants against their gentlemen masters were not tolerated and were punished severely by the justices. Whether Herbert was the "manservant having 27 days to serve" listed in the inventory of Benjamin's probate estate is uncertain, but it may well be the case.
     "Lancaster County records also include two petitions by Benjamin, one in 1672/3 and the other in 1680, for permission to bring a Indian into his household. Permission was granted in each case, on condition that a bond be posted guaranteeing the behavior of the native. We do not know the circumstances involved, but we can assume that furnishing labor for the plantation was involved, and perhaps the Rev. Benjamin had found natives interested in being taught the Christian faith.
     "Soon after the death of the Rev. Benjamin, his widow, Jane, married for the third time. Her new husband was John Boatman. John was apparently not popular with his stepchildren, and when young Benjamin became of age he sued Boatman in county court for taking advantage of Richard by putting him to work in the fields and not providing adequate support for him. The court ordered an accounting to be made by Boatman and restitution to be made to him. We can imagine that relations continued to be strained, as county court records

Rev. Benjamin Doggett was educated in 1659 at St. John's College, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England; B. A., St. John's College, Cambridge.7 He was
Per Brent [1936:2115]: "The same year [1662] he was made Curate of Stoke in Suffolk." in 1662 at Stoke, co. Suffolk, England.7
Rev. Benjamin Doggett was educated in 1662 at St. John's College, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England; M. A., St. John's College, Cambridge.7 GAV-8.4 He was
Per Brent [1936:2115]: "Shortly after his arrival in Lancaster County, he was made minister of Christ Church and also St. Mary's White Chapel. From the tone of his will, Benjamin Doggett was very much oposed to the youthful mariages made in the colony, fo he makes it very plain to his children that they will be disinherited-his sons, if they marry before 22, and his daughter before 18 years of age." after 1669 at St. Mary's Whitechapel Episcopal Church, Lancaster, Lancaster Co., Virginia, USA.8

Rev. Benjamin Doggett and Jane Doggett immigrated before 28 January 1669 to Virginia, USA.1

Rev. Benjamin Doggett left a will on 14 March 1681 at Lancaster Co., Virginia, USA;
Per "Dogetts and Other cousins":
     "Benjamin died in Lancaster County in 1682 or 1683, leaving a will of record dated 14 Mar 1681/2. The will was probated in Lancaster County in January 1682/3. See transcript of will.
     "The will divides the 350 acre plantation between his three sons, Benjamin, Richard and William, with Benjamin receiving 150 acres and the two younger sons receiving 100 acres each. His wife Jane was given the use of the land until remarriage. His daughter Anne was given personal property, to be given in two equal annual installments, provided she did not marry before reaching age 18. As she had to be nearly 18 at the time the will was drawn, this would not seem to have been a serious problem for her.
     "The reference in the will to Benjamin's daughter Jane is intriguing. "I give unto my daughter Jane Doggett in England twenty shillings and no more because she hath been detained from me and is surely provided for." We can speculate from this that Benjamin was not happy with the fact that Jane had not come to America with the family. Perhaps she had physical or mental infirmities that made it unwise for her to attempt to make the arduous trip to America, and she may have been kept by Benjamin's wife's family or may have been institutionalized.
     "Benjamin also provided in his will for payment of his debts to George Flowers and to Robert Griggs, primarily out of tobacco, but also out of the sale of planks sawed out of timber on the plantation, and of the sale of pipe staves. Pipe staves were used to make pipes or casks of wood in which tobacco was shipped to England, and may have been hewn from timber on Benjamin's plantation.
     "Benjamin had accumulated a library for use in performing his ministerial duties, and otherwise. Apparently there was not a good market for these books in Virginia, and Benjamin directed that the books be appraised, that a "great chest" be bought, and the books be packed up and sent to England to be sold. The money realized from the sale was to be used to help pay the debt to Robert Griggs, and if there was any surplus, the money was to be used by his widow to buy a mourning ring with the inscription "Follow Me." The purchase of mourning rings bearing memorial inscriptions was a popular custom at the time, and the rings could be quite valuable. The two executors were given 20 shillings to purchase mourning rings also.
     "Benjamin directed that he be buried beneath the chancel in St. Mary's Whitechapel church. As it is believed that the present church was built a hundred yards or so from the original location, we do not know whether his remains were reinterred when the new church was built, but we would hope that this was the case.

"Early Colonial Settlers of Southern Maryland and Virginia's Northern Neck Counties":
     "LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF THE REV. BENJAMIN DOGGETT
Recorded 10 January 1682/83 in Lancaster County, Virginia, Will Book 5, Page 82
(Spelling and punctuation modernized)

The abstract of Margaret Chattin's will incorrectly names two of the three witnesses. It was witnessed by George and Ann Smither, rather than John and Ann Smith. Thomas and Margaret Chattin also had dau Margaret, who is named in both of their wills. She was called Margaret Johnston in her mother's will and was already deceased.
