Headright*30 July 1660Ann Custis was named as a headright on 30 July 1660 at Northampton Co, VA. It was on this date that a land certificate was granted to John Wilcocks for 1,000 acres for transporting 20 persons into the county. The full list included Ann Wilcocks, Rose Yardly, Mary Avery, Cornelius Johnson, John Custis, Wm Marshall, Robt Marklockson, Henry Yardley, Wm Burton, Arien Ames, John Wilcocks, Wm St. Johns, Mary Barber, Ann Jeanes, Geo. Jenkins, John Floyd, Florence Pomroy, Wm Taylor, John Fereby & Wm Pryer.5 
Will - Husb's*7 May 1662Ann was named in her husband's will on 7 May 1662 at Hungars Parish, N'hamp Co, VA. She was shown as my wife in the will of John Wilcocks. A note by Marshall at the end of the will shows her as Ann, whose former husband was Argoll Yardley. She was to divide my personal estate among her children Henry & Edmond Yardly and that in her womb as she sees fit.6 
Will - Witnessed*26 July 1669Ann witnessed a will on 26 July 1669 at Hungars Parish, N'hamp Co, VA. It was on this date that Isaac Foxcraft and Ann Wilcokes witnessed the will of William Joanes of Hungars Parish.7 
Marriage*before 29 December 1671She married John Luke before 29 December 1671. They were evidently married by this date as John Luke and wife Anne delivered Elizabeth Vansoldt's estate to her son John Raynhart, as he had turn age 18 and they were his guardians. According to Whitelaw, not long after John Willcocks death in 1662 John Luke and a wife Ann, were established on 400 acres of tract N73 which John Willocks had bought from Thomas & Mary Selbe in 1660. And it is assumed that John Luke had married the widow Willcockes and that John Willcocks unborn child did not live, as no one who could be identified as such appears in the records concerning this property. After the death of Anne, Luke had a second wife Susanna, who bore him 2 sons, but whom he survived.8,9 
Married Namebefore 29 December 1671 As of before 29 December 1671,her married name was Luke. 
Anecdote*28 February 1682/83 It was on this date that upon the petition of (Capt.) Francis Pigot, since it appears to the court that Mary (the dec'd) his late wife (formerly the wife of Mr. John Michael, Sr., dec'd), on her deathbed bequeathed and gave her child which she had by her said husband Michael named Yardley Michael to Mr. John Luke and his wife Anne for his care and tuition with his whole estate, it is so ordered.10 
Death*before 1686Ann Custis died before 1686 at Northampton Co, VA. Ann is known to have been dead in 1686 when Francis Pettit claimed the land had escheated from her and he obtained a patent for it. The next year another patent was issued to Luke for the land and his patent held good over the pervious one to Pettit, because he had continued to live there after the death of Ann and could claim title by possession through her.11

Biography*He would have been one of the two males in George Bundick's Assawoman household in the 1810 Acc Co census under age 10. He was likely named for his grandfather, William Laws, and was only about age 12 in 1817, when his uncle Justice Bundick wrote his will, leaving William Bundick, "son of my deceased brother George," one fourth of his estate should Justice's daughter, Elizabeth Blackstone, die without issue. 
Birth*circa 1805William was born circa 1805 at Accomack Co, VA.2 
Marriage*8 May 1827He married Polly Prescott, daughter of Thomas Prescott and Patience (-----), on 8 May 1827 at Accomack Co, VA. George Bundick (his brother) and Richard D. Bayly were securities on the M.L.B. of William Bundick and Polly Prescott, daughter of Thomas..3

He was shown as William Bundick Junr, age 20 to 30, with a wife of the same age, a son under age 5, a daughter under age 5 and another female age 5 to 10. There is no other documented evidence of William Bundick of George in Accomack County after this date. The writer's mother, Lena (Bundick) Trader, wrote on the back of her grandfather Bundick's picture that his father, a teamster in New York, died when he was young and that his mother was a Preston. She also wrote that her grandfather was an only child, likely meaning he was the only son.. 
Census head1840William was listed as a head of household in the census of in 1840 at Schenectady Co, NY. He was shown as age 30 to 40, with a wife of the same age, a son age 5 to 10 (would have been age 11), and seven other females. There were other Bundicks in New York in 1840, but none in 1830.. 
Death*circa 1845William died circa 1845 at New York. He evidently moved his family to New York after 1830, where he worked as a teamster until his death there circa 1845 at about age 40. Nothing more is known of his widow or surviving daughters..2

Henry Davis

Birth*circa 1773Henry was born circa 1773 at Accomack Co, VA.1 
Land bought*19 September 1792He bought land on 19 September 1792 at Accomack Wayside, Accomack Co, VA. Henry Davis bought 18 acres for £50 from John Simson. The land was in the neighborhood of present-day Accomack Wayside. The deed states the land was bordered by John Moore and John Bundick.2 
Marriage*16 December 1792He married Damey Lilliston on 16 December 1792 at Accomack Co, VA. David Davis was security on the M.L.B. of Henry Davis and Damey Lillaston.3 
Land sold*1 January 1794Henry Davis sold land on 1 January 1794 at Accomack Wayside, Accomack Co, VA. Henry Davis, unmarried, sold his 18 acres for £70 to Elijah Simpson. It is likely he continued living in the area, for his only know son married the daughter of Alexander West, who bought land near Zion Baptist Church in 1801.4 
Anecdote* The official Accomack County records do not show now this Henry Davis connects to a Davis line. Neither is his name recorded in any of the census records. A composite of him must be interpolated from the generations before him and the one after him. Accomack County records show Polly Davis, daughter of Henry, married William Bundick of George in 1814 and James Davis, son of Henry, married Nancy West in 1819. The fact that his daughter married a Bundick, would indicate that Henry was a member of the Davis family located between Gargathy and Guilford. This line of Davis records have included the names of Bundicks of the same area from 1761. Other Davis lines shows Henrys but they were either of the wrong age or had no children. Since Henry Davis had children born between 1795 and 1800, he had to have been married by 1795, placing his birth circa 1775. He would have been of the right age to have been an older son of Robert Davis Jr. of the preceeding generation and out of the household by the time of the 1800 census. The most puzzling fact is why Henry Davis' name was not included in the 1800 census as head of a household, in the 1810 census, and even in the 1820 census. It appears he was living in 1814 and 1819, when his children married, for the practice was to put "dec'd" after the father's name on the marriage records, if he was not living. One possible guess is that Henry Davis was a mariner and at sea when census records were made. Family tradition says that an ancestor of this Davis line gave land for the old Metompkin Baptist Church of the Metompkin area. Whitelaw (p. 1143) shows that William and Elizabeth Warner gave 1/2 acre of the building in 1790.5 
Marriage Named in*23 June 1814He was named as a parent in a marriage record on 23 June 1814 at Accomack Co, VA. James Taylor was the security on the Acc Co M.L.B. of William Bundick of George and Polly Davis of Henry. They were married on 25 Jun 1814.3 
Marriage Named in31 May 1819He was named as a parent in a marriage record on 31 May 1819 at Accomack Co, VA. Isaac West of Alex. was the security on the M.L.B. of James Davis of Henry and Nancy West of Alex. Another record from this same source shows they were married on 19 May 1819.3 
Death*after 31 May 1819He died after 31 May 1819. No will or administration of his estate has been found.3
