Administrator*8 December 1697Elias was named as administrator of an estate on 8 December 1697 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that administration on the estate of William & Bridget Taylor his wife was granted to Elias Taylor, brother of the said William, for the use of their 6 children with Timothy Coe & Samuel Taylor securities.4,5 
Court - named in ord*9 December 1697He was named in a court order on 9 December 1697 at Accomack Co, VA. Mr. John Custis, who married Bridget the widow of Wm. Taylor, petitioned that Mr. Elias Taylor had obtained a letter of administration on Wm. Taylor's estate. Now Custis requested that division of the estate be made, "that ye said Custis might have his just part in right of his wife." Ordered that the estate be divided by the same persons appointed to appraise the estate.6 
Court - named in ord5 April 1698He was named in a court order on 5 April 1698 at Accomack Co, VA. Mr. Elias Taylor (as the administrator his brother William Taylor, deceased) complained that the order he had obtained 4 January 1697/98, for appraisement and division of the estate had not been performed because Mr. William Anderson and Mr. George Hope (two of the appraisers) had been sick. Ordered that Mr. Anderson, Joseph Stockley, George Hope, Thomas Perry and John Watts, or any four of them, appraise and divide the estate and report to the next court. It was further ordered that Mr. John Custis, who had married Bridget (Wm. Taylor's widow) and was in custody of the estate, give an inventory of the estate in his possession and swear to its accuracy at the next court.7 
Court - named in ord7 June 1698He was named in a court order on 7 June 1698 at Accomack Co, VA. Administration of the estate of William Taylor (deceased) had been granted to his brother, Mr. Elias Taylor. On behalf of William's orphans, an inventory and appraisal of the estate had been ordered. But "by reason of some disappointments" it was not done, and at the last court the order was renewed. Now Elias set forth his reasons why the appraisers had not performed the order: Mr. John Custis (who had married Bridget, the widow of William Taylor) had not performed what he had been ordered to do. By his attorney, Custis pleaded that the order for him to give an inventory under oath "was not grounded upon legal process but only upon a bare petition." After a full hearing, the court judged the order to be erroneous and reversed it. Attorneys in the case were TR (Tully Robinson) and JC (John Custis?). Since the order for the inventory of the Taylor estate was made void, Mr. Tully Robinson, attorney of Mr. Elias Taylor (administrator of the estate of his brother, William Taylor, deceased), made a new motion. The court ordered that Mr. William Anderson, Joseph Stoackly, Mr. George Hope, Thomas Perry and John Watts (or any four of them) were to inventory and appraise the estate before the next court.8 
Court - named in ord4 October 1698He was named in a court order on 4 October 1698 at Accomack Co, VA. Mr. Elias Taylor (as administrator of the estate of William Taylor) claimed that he had submitted an inventory and appraisal of as much of the estate that had come into his hands; he noted that administration had formerly been granted to Bridget (widow of Taylor), who had failed to inventory and appraise the estate "and before any proceedings therein, did intermarry with Mr. John Custis, who also failed to proceed to any appraisement of ye said estate until ye said Bridget was lying on her sick & death bed, at which time ye said Custis did cause ye appraisers in yt order named to meet at the said Wm. Taylor's house & plantation." The men inventoried and appraised what Custis presented to them, including about 39 pounds money. By order of the court, the same appraisers took a second inventory; they then found "ye said parcel of money and several goods & merchandises wanting." Taylor asked that John Custis appear to give an account of the money and other missing goods. Ordered that Custis be summoned to the next court where he was to render under oath an account of Wm. Taylor's money and goods.9 
Court - named in ord3 October 1699He was named in a court order on 3 October 1699 at Accomack Co, VA. Elias Taylor (administrator of the estate of his brother, William Taylor, deceased) had, on 4 October 1698, obtained an order for the sheriff to summon Mr. John Custis (who married Bridget, widow of Wm. Taylor) to give an account of William Taylor's estate in his possession. Because John Custis had "absented himself out of ye county", the proceedings had not been able to continue; Taylor requested the order to be revived. Now present in court, Custis alleged that he did not leave the county to evade the order, but had been about his affairs in Maryland. Ordered that the sheriff summon Custis to the next court to render under oath an account of Taylor's estate.10 
Court - named in ord8 November 1699He was named in a court order on 8 November 1699 at Accomack Co, VA. Elias Taylor (administrator of the estate of his brother, William Taylor, deceased) had, on 4 October 1698, obtained an order for the sheriff to summon Mr. John Custis (who married Bridget, widow of Wm. Taylor) to give an account of William Taylor's estate in his possession. Because John Custis had "absented himself out of ye county", the proceedings had not been able to continue; Taylor requested the order to be revived. Now present in court, Custis alleged that he did not leave the county to evade the order, but had been about his affairs in Maryland. Ordered that the sheriff summon Custis to the next court to render under oath an account of Taylor's estate.11 
Court - named in ord3 January 1699/0He was named in a court order on 3 January 1699/0 at Accomack Co, VA. At the last court it was ordered that the sheriff take Mr. John Custis into custody till he posted security to swear at this court to an account of the estate of William Taylor, deceased. The sheriff (Capt. Thomas Welburne) had returned an endorsed copy of the order, declaring that he had summoned Custis to this court to answer, with Capt. Henry Custis assuming to be security. Mr. Tully Robinson (attorney for Elias Taylor), objected to this, saying that the sheriff should have taken security from Custis himself. Since the sheriff had failed to perform according to the order, the case was continued to the next court. Welburne was ordered to perform the contents of the order or be answerable for damages.12 
Court - named in ord6 March 1699/0He was named in a court order on 6 March 1699/0 at Accomack Co, VA. Upon the complaint of Elias Taylor (administrator of the estate of William Taylor, deceased), it was ordered that Mr. John Custis (who married Bridget, widow and administrator of William Taylor) should render an account of Taylor's estate in Custis's hands. However, Custis refused to obey the order. For his contempt, the court ordered that the sheriff immediately take Custis into custody and detain him until he performed the order.

Mr. John Custis was granted the liberty to appeal the above decision to the next General Court. Capt. Henry Custis was his security.13 
Court - nam in petit*3 August 1708He was named in a petition that was recorded in court records on 3 August 1708 at Accomack Co, VA. Elias Taylor (administrator of the estate of his brother William Taylor, deceased) petitioned that Tabitha (one of William's daughters) was now about the age of 17 years and desired her part of her father's estate.

Elizabeth Taylor, daughter of William Taylor, petitioned that her father had left her a small estate which was now in the hands of her uncle, Mr. Elias Taylor (administrator of her father's estate). Now arrived to lawful age, Elizabeth asked that her portion be given to her. Ordered that Taylor immediately deliver Elizabeth's part to her and pay court costs.15 
Court - nam in petit2 October 1711He was named in a petition that was recorded in court records on 2 October 1711 at Accomack Co, VA.

Anecdote*26 July 1757 On 26 Jul 1757 in Accomack Court Robert Chambers with wife Sarah (attorney: Littleton Dennis) sued Elijah Nock (attorney: George Douglas). William Nock (Sarah’s father) had owned a Negro slave named Leah. In his will (dated 25 February 1737) Nock gave the use of Leah to his son George; Leah’s first child (at the age of two) was to be delivered to Sarah. The rest of Leah’s children were to be equally divided between Nock’s children Nehemiah, Solomon, George and Sarah. William Nock’s will gave the following: to son Elijah–250 acres home plantation, ½ interest in 200 acres marsh, a cow, a ewe, the use of Negro girl Matha; to son William–right to live on home plantation if destitute, a cow, a ewe; son John–150 acres to then go to his son Joseph, ½ interest in 200 acres marsh; son Nehemiah–a cow, a ewe, share of Leah’s increase; son Solomon–a cow, a ewe, share of Leah’s increase; son George–a cow, a ewe, use of Negro wench Leah, share of Leah’s increase; daughter Sarah–Leah’s 1 child st at age two, share of Leah’s increase; wife Elizabeth–use of the home plantation and 200 acres of marsh on the Bay Side, yoke of oxen, 10 cattle, the care of Elijah and Sarah, all the cider, brandy, hogs, meat, corn, wheat; grandson Joseph Nock (s/o John & wife Martha)–Matha’s 1st child at age two; grandson William Ratclif (s/o Charles & wife Waddelo)–Matha’s 2nd child at age two. Witnesses were John Nock, John Tankred and Stephen (x) Warrington. The jury noted that –The will was proved 2 May 1738. –Executors William and John took possession of Leah. –George, in his will (8 January 1743), gave Leah to his brother Elijah. (He also gave: to Elijah–6 pewter plates, 2 dishes, bridle, saddle, leather britches, coat, check shirt, best hoe, bed and bedding; to William–10 bushels corn, coat; to John–blue jacket, red cloth to cover wife’s saddle, logwood axe; to Solomon–finest hat; to Nehemiah–6 bushels corn; to cousin Joseph Nock–2 pigs; to sister Sarah–check linen for an apron, silk handkerchief, fine shift and muslin for a cap. (End p. 201) The rest of the estate was to be divided between his brothers and two sisters. Executors were John and William; witnesses were Richard Justice, Thomas Webb and Elias Truit. William inventoried George’s estate (appraised by Ralph Justice, Robert Abbott and Richard Justice–submitted 25 September 1744). Among other things it included Leah, about 18 or 19 years old (£30:00:00). The jury found that– In August 1743, Leah gave birth to Esther; – Plaintiffs Robert and Sarah were married before George died; – Robert demanded Esther (after she reached two years of age) from William (exr of William and George), but he refused saying she belonged to brother Elijah (now the defendant); –Sarah reached the age of 21 ten years before bringing her 1751 suit, which was dropped; –At that time Esther was 10 years 10 months old; – In 1754 the present suit commenced. If the law favored the plaintiffs, the jury would find that the defendant detained the slave (worth £30) and would award damages of 6 pence. The court’s judgment would be given 30 August. Witnesses for Nock: Rachel Webb (3 days) and Margaret Stockley (2 days).5

Kingswell devised his rights to Wingate, whose widow Dorothy devised them to Lewis Burwell. On 18 Apr 1648 a patent was granted to Lewis Burwell and Thomas Vause for 2300 acres for transporting colonists. As several persons who were headrights under his patent are known to have been with the Kingswell colony, it is believed that this list represents the entire group of colonists. Among the names are included William Taylor, Elias Taylor and Thomas Adams.3
