There was a Daniel Boston, unmarried and age 66 only 3 houses from her in the 1850 Census. Margaret Jane Wessells, who married John W. Linton in 1853 and Susan E. Wessells, who married Jesse T. Miles in 1868 both listed Betsy Wessells as their mother on their marriage records and a father was not listed. A Daniel Wessells of this period has not been found in Acc Co records.

Birth*circa 1787Tully was born circa 1787 at Accomack Co, VA. The range of Tully's possible birth year from census records are as follows: he is assumed to have been the 10-16 year old male in the household of George Christopher, husband of Susanna Fisher, in 1800, born 1784-1790; 1810, born 1785-1795; 1820, born 1775-1795; 1830, born 1780-1790; 1840, born 1780-1790; 20 Aug 1850, age 63, born 1787. The key census here is 1810 and 1850. 1810 shows the controlling earliest year as 1785 and the latest year in several census is 1790. Since there is very good correlation among all these census, there is no reason to doubt the 1850 census, which shows he was born in 1787. It should also be noted that older persons almost always over estimated their age, which supports the assumption that he was not born before 1787..2

Anecdote*1786 Whitelaw's A126G is called the Bloxom House. The gambrel-roof house originally had been build in two sections, each having an outside brick end, and stood about 100 yards back from its present location. In the north end was a brick marked 1786 and in the south end other bricks marked WB, HB, AP 3, 1831, so the older part must have been started at least by Richard Bloxom in the year of his death, and the newer during the ownership of William and Hetty Bloxom. In 1934 the brick ends were torn down and the house moved to its present site, but the marked bricks were carefully preserved and set in the new foundations at their respective ends. The present center cross hall was a pat of the earlier construction, and is paneled under the stairs, and the doors are made of wide beaded boards set vertically. In the newer sections are large cupboards with solid doors, but they seem to be the only original woodwork worth noting in either part.5

Birth*circa 1660Thomas was born circa 1660. 
Marriage*circa 1680He married (-----) (-----) circa 1680. 
Tithable list*1685Thomas was on the list of tithables at Accomack Co, VA, for in 1685. He was listed in Capt. John Wallop's Precincts as Tho. Simpson with 3 tithes. In 1686 he was listed in Major Bowman's Precincts with 3 tithes. This was apparently not a relocation on his part, but a subdivision of Capt. Wallop's Precincts as most of the others in Major Bowman's Precincts were also in Capt. Wallop's Precincts the prior year. In 1687 he was listed in Capt. Hill's Precincts with 4 tithes. Being on Capt. Hill's list was probably the result of a relocation as many of his neighbors, like Roger Miles and Richard Bundick, were still on Capt. Wallop's list. In 1688 he was listed again in Capt. Hill's Precincts with 5 tithes, but in 1689 he was back on Major Bowman's list, again with 5 tithes. In 1690 he was still on Major Bowman's list, but with only 3 tithes. In 1691 he was back on Capt. Wallop's list, again with 3 tithes. In 1692 he was on Mr. Jo. Robinson's list with only 1 tithe. He was not on any list in 1693, but on Mr. Ed. Custis's list in 1694 with only 1 tithe. This did not reflect a relocation as many of his past neighbors, like Roger Miles and Richard Bundick were on this same list. He was again on Mr. Ed. Custis's list in 1695 with only 1 tithe. During this 10 year period (1685-1695), he was the only Simpson listed. The fact that the tithes started at 3, then increased to 5 and then dropped to 1 can be misleading. Since tithes were to represent males age 16 and up in good health (able to work), either sons, lives-ins, or slaves, its not possible to determine the ages of his sons from these listing, other than to presume none of them had reached the age of 16 by 1695. Therefore, his oldest son could not have been born before 1680..1 
Land bought*1689Thomas bought land in 1689 at Accomack Co, VA. He bought the Francis Johnson half of Whitelaw's tract A104, which is south-east of the present town of Parksley, from Francis Johnson, Negro. In 1708 Thomas and Sarah Parker sold the other half of tract A104 to Thomas Simpson, who thus became possessed of the whole tract. In 1726 he bequeathed the land as follows: to his son Thomas, 225 acres which formed the southwestern part and included the strip extending to the highway below tract A103; to his son John, 200 acres which he called the home plantation, lying above Thomas's part and extending up to the crossroad; and to son William, 50 acres which he also called a part of the home plantation..2 
Was Living20 October 1689Thomas was living on 20 October 1689 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that Adam Michael left to his kinsman Henry Custis (son of his brother John Custis) 1,000 acres at 'Matomkin' in Accomack Co, whereon Thomas Simson now lives. This was Whitelaw's tract A94, which is north-east of the present day town of Accomac..3 
Land gave*1720Thomas deeded land as a gift in 1720 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that Thomas gave 200 acres of Whitelaw's tract A114, which he acquired from William and Margaret Darter, to his son William. The land comprised all of the extension at the southeast corner of the tract and lay between the present main road in Parksley and the head northern branch of Hunting Creek, which later became known as the Parish Branch..4 
Will*6 January 1726He made a will on 6 January 1726 at Accomack Co, VA. To son Thomas 'Simson' 225 acres purchased of Thomas Parker, also 50 acres purchased of Peter Claywell. To son William 'Simson' 200 acres purchased of William Darter, also 50 acres where I now live, also 112 and 1/2 acres of marsh. To son John 'Simson' 200 acres where I now live, also 112 and 1/2 acres of marsh. Daughter Sarah 'Simson'. To the poor of the Parish 1,000 lbs of tobacco or £5 money. 9 children: Thomas, Elizabeth, Mary, Margaret, Rachel, William, Patience, John & Sarah residual legatees. Sons Thomas, William and John executors. Wittnesses John Tankred, John Oakley, Mark Littleton..5

Marriage*15 October 1796He married Esther Dix, daughter of William Dix and Comfort Tatham, on 15 October 1796 at Accomack Co, VA. They were shown only as Stephen Hickman and Esther Dix.3 
Land inherited*10 February 1798Stephen Hickman inherited land on 10 February 1798 at tract A116, Rue, Accomack Co, VA. Edward Hickman's children were named in the division of his land in settling his estate. The northern 56 acres was divided into 3 portions, as was the southern 50 acre strip. Son Richard received 17 1/2 acres of the 56 acres, son George received 18 1/2 acres of the 56 acres, and Stephen & Robert Hickman jointly received 20 acres of the 56 acres and it is assumed they were the sons of a dec'd child who had died before Edward. The 56 acres that were divided into these 3 tracts eventually became owned by Zepporah Ann Hickman Morten, seemingly the orphan daughter of Richard Hickman and were sold by her and her husband Thomas Morten of Somersette County, New Jersey, to James Rew of Accomack County in 1830 (Acc Deeds 1828-1830, p. 446). Henry Hickman received 15 acres of the southern 50 acre tract and the deed names his wife Scissey Hickman. This was probably Lissa Bayly that Henry is recorded as marrying in 1789. Thomas Hickman received 16 acres of the southern 50 acre tract and Dennis Hickman received the remaining acres of the southern 50 acre tract although his deed is not included with the 5 recorded in the division of 1798. Dennis & wife Bridget signed the other deeds and the next year (1799) they made a deed selling his brother Thomas Hickman's 18 1/2 acres for 55 pounds "The whole that fell to him by the death of his father" (Acc District Court Wills & Deeds, 1789-1799, p. 445). In 1806 Dennis and Bridget signed another deed selling Thomas (of Edward) the 3 acres of land that was Dennis' share of his late brother Henry Hickman's land.4
