     "The Humble Peticion of Christian Holt, als Bonmfield, sheweth that whereas your Peticioner to all the Inhabitants adjadcent is well knowne to have brought a considerable estate into your Lordships Province and hath lived in a full and plentifull manner till such time as her unfortunate marriage hapened with Robert Holt. She then having a considrable estate in her possession. And whereas since it hath pleased God to take away the said Robert Holt, he having in his life time confirmed all his worldly good to your Petitioner being inconsidrable to the value of what she had when she was first married to him wince with decease of the said Holt your Petitioner being thus virtually possest by deed of guilt is nevertheless molested and threatened to be turned out of doors into the woods by one David Holt, his said sonne. The premises considered your petitioner humbly begs your Honors Just and pious consideration to redresse her injuries she being always ready to give such just accounts as shall in law be required of the same and she as in duty bound shall pray.

     "Robert mentioned his sons David and Richard in this deed, it cannot be read; however, a month previous he had given one half of the 100 acres called Randalls Point to David. He is the only child who remained in Maryland. A court-ordered inventory of the goods of Robert Holt was returned December 9, 1662. It showed substantial holdings in livestock, farm implements, tools, and household furniture. Except for his land patent of 1649, records of his landholdings have been lost in the destruction of St. Mary's County deed records. From all evidence, Robert existed and achieved some degree of success during his time in Maryland. of his four children, David died in St. Mary's County, Maryland in 1678 or 79. Richard will be discussed later in this research. He died in Essex County, Virginia in 1693. Dorothy, Jr. received the bequest of land in Maryland but went with her mother to Virginia where in 1665 she bound herself to Henry Aubrey, to serve him for five years, to do household work but not "working the ground." She subsequently married and disappeared from record. Elizabeth also received land from her father in Maryland but was in Virginia in 1672 when Edward Hudson left her a cow. No further records have been found.

Robert mentioned his sons David and Richard in this deed, it cannot be read; however, a month previous he had given one half of the 100 acres called Randalls Point to David. He is the only child who remained in Maryland. A court-ordered inventory of the goods of Robert Holt was returned December 9, 1662. It showed substantial holdings in livestock, farm implements, tools, and household furniture. Except for his land patent of 1649, records of his landholdings have been lost in the destruction of St. Mary's County deed records. From all evidence, Robert existed and achieved some degree of success during his time in Maryland. of his four children, David died in St. Mary's County, Maryland in 1678 or 79. Richard will be discussed later in this research. He died in Essex County, Virginia in 1693. Dorothy, received the bequest of land in Maryland but went with her mother to Virginia where in 1665 she bound herself to Henry Aubrey, to serve him for five years, to do household work but not "working the ground." She subsequently married and disappeared from record. Elizabeth also received land from her father in Maryland but was in Virginia in 1672 when Edward Hudson left her a cow. No further records have been found.

     "John Garner Jr, age about 49, declares that about 20 years ago, John Coffer Sr, decd, told this deponent that this locust that we are now at, being now fallen down, was a bounded tree of a tract of land belonging to Thomas Plunket and Francis Coffer, and further says that John Coffer Jr, decd, to the best of his remembrance, has been with him at the above mentioned locust and told him it was a bound tree of the afd land, and further says that about 15-16 years ago, at the request of Francis Coffer, part owner of sd land, this deponent was brought in company with John Clements Sr and several others to a large hickory which we are now at, standing about 80 yards distant from some apple trees where Thomas Plunket formerly lived, and sd John Clements, who came there at the request of sd Francis Coffer to show the sd Coffer the dividing line of the afd land between the sd Francis Coffer and Henry Barnes, the sd Barnes then held Plunket's part of sd land and the afd Clemence showed the above mentioned hickory for a dividing line between sd Francis Coffer and sd Barnes, and from the sd hickory carried them to a white oak then standing but is now cut down, it being about 100 yards from the now dwelling house of John Garner Jr, and the afd Clemence showed this to be the dividing line from the sd hickory to the sd white oak between the sd Francis Coffer and Henry Barnes.
     "Henry Coffer, age about 37, declares that about 20 years ago, being along with his father, John Coffer, getting a timber tree, the stump of sd timber tree being about 50-60 yards from the locust mentioned in John Garner's deposition, that the sd John Coffer showed this deponent a locust tree, and to the best of his remembrance, fairly bounded on 2 sides for a bound tree of Plunket's lands, and believes the locust mentioned in John Garner's deposition to be the tree or stood very near that place, and further says he heard his father say it stood within his father's line, and further says that about 15-16 years ago, at the request of Francis Coffer, who was part owner of sd land as he understood by sd Coffer, and John Clemence Sr, this deponent, was in company with sd Francis Coffer, John Clemence Sr, and John Garner Jr and others, and the sd John Clemence Sr showed the hickory which we are now at, being the hickory mentioned in John Garner's deposition; also the white oak mentioned by John Garner to be the division between sd Francis Coffer and Henry Barnes referring to John Garner's deposition.
     "Then adjourned until Oct 26 and met at the above mentioned place and took the following deposition, viz -

Note: Mr. M. L. Hutt, the gentlemanly clerk of Westmoreland County, Virginia., under date of June 11, 1885, among other statements, says:
The parish records of this county were destroyed in the Revolution -- other records date back to 1652. Thomas Marshall is the oldest of that name on record. He purchased of Francis Wright 200 acres of land. No administration was granted on Thos. Marshall's estate. His 200 acres of land fell to his son William. He is the only child mentioned in the will, but he may have had others. William afterward moved to King and Queen County, Virginia., and he sold the land to John Marshall, perhaps one of his brothers, by deed dated Oct. 23, 1727. I find inventory and appraisement of John Marshall's estate returned and recorded April 22, 1751. Said John Marshall died before August, 1751 (yet the will is dated 1752, No. 12), from the fact that James Berryman, the administrator, signed the inventory of his property about that time; but said inventory and appraisement were not returned and recorded
Page 13
until the 22d of April, 1751, as above stated. (Could this have been another John Marshall, son of John, of Ireland, for Thos. Marshall and Elizabeth Marshall were executors of John Marshall of the Forest, No. 12?) I find inventory and apprisement of James Marshall's estate returned and recorded May 3, 1751. (This may have been another son of Thomas, who died 1704). I find John Marshall's inventory and appraisement returned and recorded July 13, 1752. (Above, it is April 22, 1751). John Marshall's will is dated April 1, 1752. (These discrepancies can be reconciled only by supposing two John Marshalls). John Marshall's widow's name was Elizabeth, and she made a deed of gift for 100 acres to Thomas Marshall, dated May 25, 1752. I can find nothing of Capt. John Marshall, emigrant. The records don't date far enough back. The will of Peter McClanahan is dated January, 1775. His children are 1, Peter, 2, Thomas, 3, James, 4, Mary, 5, John -- wife not mentioned. John Smith's will is dated January 7, 1771. Children, 1, Edward, 2, Matthew -- wife not named. There is no index to the old marriage bonds, and it would be much trouble to look over them.

Note: W. M. Paxton, in his book "The Marshall Family," said that the Marshall family was from Ireland. Later, in letters written to G. C. Marshall in 1886 and 1895, Paxton said that the Marshall family came "from central or northern England, beyond question." He said that he "made a grand mistake in deriving the Marshalls from Ireland."
     ""Now I believe it to be a fact that none of the Marshalls mentioned by Paxton as descendants of William Marshall, the eldest son of Thomas Marshall of Westmoreland, are descendants from him. The truth or error of this assumption turns upon the paternity of the so-called William Marshall of Mecklenburg. Thomas Marshall (Lieut.-Col.), the son of John Marshall of (Isle of Wright), is recorded by Paxton as born 1655. His son William Marshall was said to have been born about 1685. His father was then about thirty years old. If the so-called William of Mecklenburg was his son and born in 1757 then his father, William of King and Queen County was seventy-two years old at the date of his birth-but it is known that the first William Marshall (born 1685) had a son William Marshall, born about 1707, who lived in King and Queen County who married one Elizabeth Williams. This couple had also a son William Marshall who lived for a time in Caroline County, Virginia. He was born 1744 and married Anne McLeod, a daughter of Furquil McLeod and Anne Clark, an aunt of Gen. George Rogers Clark, Lieut.-Col. Johathan Clark and Governor Wm. Clark, of Lewis and Clark fame. This couple married about 1768 and removed from Caroline County, Virginia to Fairhope, Jefferson County, Kentucky about 1780."

This finds singular illustration in the history of the Marshall family.
     "For several generations this sept has produced men of such indisputable talent, and force of character, that the name has become prominent in our national annals. Yet, even in this country, the line of one branch has been made the subject of no little controversy.
And when we follow the line back beyond the sea, we get into a realm of uncertainty and conjecture.
     "The tradition is that they are descended from William le Mareschal, shown by the Domes Day Book to have fought at Hastings and to have received an estate on the border of the Wales. In time the representatives of this family became Earls of Pembroke. They had estates in Ireland. During the War of Roses all of the direct male line of Pembroke Marshalls were killed oft; and the title and estates passed to the female line. But it is claimed by tradition that a Captain John Marshall, of Ireland, who claimed collateral kinship with the Pembroke branch, fought and was wounded at the siege of Calais, 1557. It is claimed that, he went back to Ireland, and that a grandson of his, also a Captain Marshall, commanded a troop in king Charles' (Stuart's) army at the battle of Edge Hill, 1642. Tradition again has it that he came to Virginia about 1650. It was of him that old Dr. Humphrey Marshall said we were descended from an Irish captain, and a d..d poor captain at that.
     "Campbell's History of Virginia mentions a John Marshall who was a captain of Virginia troops in the Indian wars. It is assumed that he was the Edge Hill Marshall and the father of Thomas Marshall, of Westmoreland County, Virginia., whose will, probated in 1704, is the first authentic Marshall of record in Virginia. In O'Hara's Landed Gentry of Ireland there is mention of a Lieutenant-Colonel Thomas Marshall and a Captain John Marshall who received grants of land in Ireland from Charles II after the Restoration, for services rendered presumably during the Round Head Revolution. It may be, therefore, that the Thomas Marshall, of Westmoreland, was this Lieutenant-Colonel Thomas, of Ireland, and that he did not come to Virginia until after the Restoration; or it may be that this Captain John Marshall who received a grant of land in Ireland was the same John who came to Virginia, for he may not have come to the colony until after the accession of Charles II; or he may have come before--even as early as 1645---and have received the grant of land in his absence. It is just as probable, however, that the Virginia Marshalls descend neither from the Pembroke or the Irish Marshalls, for in Hotten's Book of Immigrants to the colonies from 1600 to 1700, no less than six names of Marshalls appear as having migrated to Virginia before 1642.
     "In the absence of official or family records It is not apparent why Thomas, of Westmoreland, may not have descended from one of these earlier immigrants. Thomas, of Westmoreland, left a son, William, born about 1685, who was still a minor of nineteen at the time of his father's death in 1704. Tradition has it again, but this time of undoubted tradition, that he left a younger son, John, who was known as John of the Forest, who married Elizabeth Markham, and lived and died in Westmoreland County, Virginia. He was the father of Colonel Thomas Marshall, the colonel of the 3d Virginia regiment in the Continental Army and the grandfather of Chief Justice Marshall.
     "Paxton's record of the Marshall family in this country is only a genealogical record of this branch of the family, that is, of the descendants of John Marshall of the Forest and Elizabeth Markham, his wife. But he mentions, parenthetically, that there was an elder branch of the descendants of William Marshall, the oldest son of Thomas, of Dumfries, and the only child designated by name in his will, probated in 1704. This will appears on the tenth page of his book. Immediately after appears the statement that this William Marshall had a son who was known as Colonel William Marshall, of Mecklenburg, Virginia., who married Lucy Goode, of Powhatan county. He states positively that this Colonel William Marshall was one of the signers of the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence, and an officer of the Revolutionary War_ To the best of my information he was born 1757, and died at Henderson, Kentucky, about 1810. His name does not appear among the Mecklenburg signers, nor does his name appear on any roster of Virginia soldiers. The records of the pension office show that there was a Private William Marshall who received a pension for eight months service in 1781. I cannot ascertain whether this William was the man who married Miss Goode or not. Paxton gives as his decendants his son, William J. Marshall, of Henderson, Kentucky, who married Sarah Lyne Holloway, and their children, John H., William J., James B. and Lucy Marshall Lyne. This he says is the only branch of Colonel William Marshall's family he can trace. He gives the names of Dr. J. M. Marshall of Knoxville, Tennessee, Joseph Marshall of North Carolina, and of H. D., V. E. and Neal B. of Union, Missouri, and of J. W. Marshall of Remez, West Virginia, as probable decendants of this branch. Yet on page 7 of his book he publishes an extract from Mr. Thomas Marshall Green's book who states explicitly that the Andersons of Kentucky and Ohio, and the Samuels and Tompkins of Kentucky were descendants of this elder branch of the Marshall family.
     "Now I believe it to be a fact that none of the Marshalls mentioned by Paxton as descendants of William Marshall, the eldest son of Thomas of Westmoreland, are descendants from him. The truth or error of this assumption turns upon the paternity of the so called William of Mecklenburg. Thomas, (Lientenant-Colonel) the son of John, is recorded by Paxton as born in 1655. His son William was said to have been born about 1685. His father was then about 30 years old. If the so called William of Mecklenburg was his son, and born in 1757, then his father, William of King and Queen, was 72 years old at the date of his birth. But it is known that the first William had a son William, born about 1707, who lived in King and Queen, and who married an Elizabeth Williams. This couple had also a son William who lived for a time in Caroline county, Virginia. He was born in 1744 and married Anne McLeod, a daughter of Turquil McLeod and Anne Clarke an aunt of General George Rogers Clark, Lieutenant-Colonel Johnathan Clark and Governor William Clark of Lewis and Clark fame. This couple married about 1768 and removed from Caroline county, Virginia, to Fairhope, Jefferson county, Kentucky, about 1780. By successive divisions of Jefferson county their home successively fell under the subdivisions of Henry county and Trimble county, Kentucky.
     "They had four daughters, who married a Samuel, a Webb, a Thompkins, and an Anderson. The youngest daughter, Sarah, married Lieutenant Colonel Richard Clough Anderson, of the Virginia Continental line, who had served in the Revolutionary War with her cousin, John Marshall, subsequently Chief Justice. It must appear from this statement that if Colonel William, of Mecklenburg, was a son of William the son of Thomas, of Westmoreland, then that William must have had two sons named William, one of whom married a Williams and another a Goode, or that he had two wives, a Williams and a Goode, successively. This quite possible hypothesis is made untenable from the fact that neither branch of the family has any record of a double marriage or any knowledge of each other.
     "Our acceptance of one or the other of these claims of descent, will depend upon our inclination to accept the authority of Paxton or of Green. But what does it matter ? We have now the gratifying knowledge that we are in an ascending series from a primeval atom. For we have now the assurance of science that God made radium and rested on the seventh day."

I believe Paxton got it wrong in his 1885 publication on the Marshall family and mixed up the Isle of Wright Marshall's with the Westmoreland Marshall's. It appears the 1635 transportation of 20 year old John Marshall to VA was the one who married Jane McCarthy. From naming conventions, no William or Thomas figures into the Isle of Wight Family.
There is another line of Marshall's that was in Lancaster Co. VA on the Rappanhannock River near Leedstown that would have been a better match for the 1655 Thomas Marshall. However, they are all accounted for with land records and wills/inventories. This family appears to be the ancestors of the King George County, Virginia and "Berry Plains", and were early overseers for the Carter family. I'm currently focusing on the John Marshall that died in Lancaster county and had orphans.
The Thomas Marshall millwright, living in "Allens Fresh", Charles County Maryland that moved to Virginia abt 1684 to avoid prosecution by the St. Mary's MD courts after Fendall's Rebellion, is the Thomas was living in Northumberland and after 1695 per the "1695 Col. Nehemiah Blackiston inventory, where Thomas is referred to as "of Virginia". This Thomas appears to have died in Stafford county.
The Families of Brown, Rozier, Chandler, Harrison, & Pope all had property on both sides of the Potomac directly across from "Allens Fresh" at Pope's Creek in Westmoreland Co. Va, and the Marshall's married into most of them. Coincidently, Thomas' move to Virginia was the same time Martha Sherwood of Westmoreland Co. Va. married a Thomas Marshall and her sister Sarah married a David Rozier, a nephew of Col. Benjamin Rosier.
Thomas Marshall b 1655 would have been one of the first sons of William Marshall & Catherine Payne widow of Thomas Dr. Hebden who died 1649, or from an earlier marriage to Margaret Bayne who died about 1650. However DNA testing show no relationship between the MD and VA lines.

In the name of God, Amen! I, Thomas Marshall, of the County of Westmoreland, of Washington parish, carpenter, being very weak, but of perfect memory, thanks be to God for it, doth ordain this my last will and testament, in the manner and form following:
(b) First: I give and bequeath my soul into the hands of my Blessed Creator and Redeemer, hoping, through merits of my Blessed Savior, to receive full pardon and remission of all my sins; and my body to the earth, to be decently buried according to the direction of my executor, which hereafter shall be named.
(c) Item: I will and ordain that my well beloved wife, Martha Marshall, shall be my full and whole executrix.
(d) Item: I will that my estate shall remain in the hands of my wife as long as she remains single; but in case she marries, then, she is to have her lawful share, and the rest to be taken out of her hands, equally to be divided among my children.
(e) Item: I will that if my wife marry, that David Brown, Sr., and John Brown be guardians over my children, and to take the estate into their hands, bringing it to appraisement, giving good security to what it is valued, and to pay my children their dues as they become of age.
(f) Item: I will that Elizabeth Rosser is to have a heifer, delivered by my wife, called "Whitebelly," to be delivered as soon as I am deceased.
(g) Item: I will that my son William Marshall have my plantation, as soon as he comes of age, to him and his heirs forever, but in case my son William die before he comes of age, or die without issue, then my plantation is to fall to the next heir apparent at law. (No date.)

(h) The maiden name of Mrs. Martha Marshall is unknown, and William and John are the only children we can trace. John married Elizabeth Markham, and, with them, I begin my chart. William was the father of the celebrated Col. William Marshall of Mecklenburg, who served in the Revolutionary war, and was one of the patriots who, in 1775, promulgated the Declaration of Independence, which served as a model for the Continental Manifesto. The posterity of Col. William Marshall has already been referred to (10) and it may be useful to trace one branch of his posterity.
