Was Living14 August 1753Thomas was living on 14 August 1753 at Northampton Co, VA.

They were evidently his step-sons, the children of his wife Sarah who was the widow of Thomas Fisher who died circa 1727. The confusing part here is that he said 'when they come to lawful age' as they would have then been at least 26 years of age (1753-1727) by this time, so he could have been referring to William and Thomas Fisher, sons of his wife Sarah's son Thomas. This would have made them his step-grandsons..4

On 15 Mar 1832 the following additional information was recorded - James Fisher, who was not mentioned in a certificate of the Court made at the last term, another son and heir of Geroge Fisher died in Baltimore, leaving a will. William Fisher (brother of Ensign John) died leaving a will, and Sally Fisher his widow and one of his legatees is dead leaving a will; William Fisher the son and one of the heirs of the said William Fisher is dead leaving a will and Polly Nottingham (formerly Polly Fisher) the daughter of William the brother of of John, died intestate (N'hamp Co Orders, 1831-36, p. 71). On 12 Mar 1833 it was ordered that - John R. Fisher, guardian of Margaret Susan Fisher; Samuel P. Fisher, guardian of William J. Nottingham and Anne W. Ewing (formerly Anne Hopkins) guardian of Susan Hopkins, or their authorized attorney, have leave to sell and assign the land bounty script to which the said Margaret Susan Fisher, William J. Nottingham and Susan Hopkins are entitled as infant heirs fo John Fisher deceased who was an Ensign in the Army of the Revolution of the Virginia Line on continental establishment (N'hamp Co Orders, 1831-36, p. 179). On 11 Nov 1851 it was ordered that - John Fisher, who was an Ensign in the Rev. War died intestate leaving George and William Fisher his only heirs at law ... (much of the earlier information was repeated, but new information included) James Fisher gave his property to Susan Hopkins, who has since died intestate leaving her mother Ann W. Ewing her only heir at law. William R. Fisher died intestate leaving William R. Fisher, Margaret Fisher (now wife of John T. Johnson), Mary W. Fisher (wife of Littleton L.

Ewing, dec'd, who was heir at law of Susan Hopkins, dec'd, who was a devisee of James Fisher, dec'd, who was one of the legatees and devisees of George Fisher, dec'd, who was one of the heirs at law of John Fisher who was an Ensign in the Rev. War (N'hamp Co Orders, 1851-57, p. 452). This Juliet A. Fisher and Susan Fisher were probably nieces of Ann W. Ewing, but since Ann had several other brothers in addition to Miers W. Fisher, it is not clear as to who their father was, either John R. or Edwin Fisher..1

Birth*1771James was born in 1771 at Northampton Co, VA. Jas Fisher, orphan of Thos, chose his guardian May 1785, implying he was age 14 or older at that time..1 
Will - Father's*29 May 1778James was named in his father's will on 29 May 1778 at Northampton Co, VA. 
Marriage*13 December 1791He married Mary 'Polly' White, daughter of William White and Rachel Jacob, on 13 December 1791 at Northampton Co, VA. George Melhollomes was the security on the M.L.B. of James Fisher and Mary White, daughter of William White, deceased..2 
Was Living28 November 1794James was living on 28 November 1794 at Northampton Co, VA. It was on this date that he and Hancock Jacob were named to administered Rachel White's estate. She would have been his mother-in-law..3 
Death*1795James died in 1795.4 
Admin of estate*13 July 1795Administration of James's estate was filed on 13 July 1795 at Northampton Co, VA. It was on this date that his estate was administered to William Fisher (probably his uncle?), Polly the widow of James having declined. Appraisers were John Tompkins, John Elliott, Robins Mapp and Kendall Addison.5 
Anecdote* In describing the ownership of tract N88, Whitelaw traces the John Fisher Part as follows: "1720 - The will of John Fisher mentioned no land, but being entailed it went to his eldest son Thomas. 1727 - He left everything to his wife Sarah, but the land went to his eldest son, also a Thomas. 1772 - Thomas, Jr. (wife Mary), left to his son Thomas (III) but upon his death without issue the title reverted to his mother, who married Tully R. Wise, the son of Colonel John Wise IV. 1812 - He left the property to a son of the same name, and in 1841 Tully R. and Ann K. Wise sold the plantation of 758 acres by survey to Southy S. Satchell." On closer investigation, it is evident that Whitelaw did not trace the later Fisher generations accurately, perhaps because of two wives named Mary, both nicknamed Polly, the older one a Bell and the younger one a White. He was correct up through 1772. However, Thomas (III) did not die without issue, as he had a son James whose estate was administered to a William Fisher on 13 Jul 1795, Polly the widow of James having declined. Polly was Mary White, daughter of William deceased, who had married James Fisher on 13 Dec 1791. It was this Mary Fisher who married Tully R. Wise on 7 Dec 1797 and not Thomas (III)'s mother Mary, as she died in 1785, as Polly Fisher. To further complicate matters, James Fisher may have had a son, Tully Wise Fisher, born about the time of his death, or his wife Mary had a bastard child by her future husband, Tully R. Wise. Ironically, if Tully Wise Fisher was in fact James' son, it would be he who should have inherited the land instead of Tully R. Wise obtaining it by marring the widow of James.6

Birth*before 7 March 1594/95William was born before 7 March 1594/95 at Ashford, Co Kent, England. It was on this date that he was baptized..1 
Anecdote*1616 He was in France and the Low Countires in 1616 and late in 1617 was living with his cousin Thomas Godfrey at Selling, Co Kent, England.1 
Anecdote29 August 1618 He sailed for Virginia in the William and Thomas, arriving 29 Aug 1618.1 
Anecdote*1619 He was employed as agent by Sir Nicholas Tufton (afterwards Earl of Thanet) and was in command of Smith's Hundred Company in 1619 when he engaged in a shipboard quarrel near Newport News with Capt. Edward Roecroft alias Stallenge and, striking him with his scabarded sword, "cleft" his skull. Rosecroft died the next day. Epes, tried, was found guilty of manslaughter, but after a short while was restored to his command.1 
Marriage*before 1623He married Margaret (-----) before 1623.2 
Anecdote1623 By 1623 he was commander of the Estern Shore. In the census, 16 Feb 1623/4, he, Mrs. Epes and "Petter Epps" are listed on the Eastern Shore. Here in 1624 William Epes accused Ensign Savage of libelling him and "did lay the said Ensign Savage neck and heels"; small wonder he was called a "mad, ranting fellow."1 
Muster*February 1624/25William was listed in the Muster of February 1624/25 at Eastern Shore, VA. He was shown as Capt William Epes, his Muster, who came in the William and Thomas. Listed with him was Margrett Epes and servants Niccholas Raynbred, William Burditt, Thomas Cornish, Peeter Porter, John Baker, Edward Rogers, Thomas Warden, Benjamine Knight, Niccolas Granger, William Munnes, Henrie Wilson, James Blackborne & Nicholas Sumerfild.3 
Land patented*3 February 1626He patented land on 3 February 1626 at Eastern Shore, VA. It contained 450 acres for transporting 9 men.4 
Anecdote1627 During 1625, 1626 and 1627 Eppes made several appearances before the General Court, sometimes in an official capacity and sometime as a litigant. He served as Mrs. Katherine Bennett's attorney, and he also testified that he had seen Luke Eden shortly before his death and that Eden's trunk had been broken open and emptied of it contents. Eppes bought a shallop from shipwright Thomas Nunn but failed to pay for it, and he also was identified as one of Luke Boyse's debtors. He was ordered to give John Darker a replacement tobacco bill. In July 1626 William Eppes testified that the Indians on the Eastern Shore were friendly to the colonists, and three months later Eppes was authorized to talk with the Natives about some hogs they allegedly killed. He was given permission to take a captured Weyanoke Indian to the Eastern Shore and then to England. During the later part of 1626 Capt. William Eppes' scandalous social behavior resulted in his being brought before the General Court. Sometime after late June 1626, but before 19 Feb 1627, Eppes who was visiting James Slight at Martin's Brandon, became quite drunk and had sex with the widowed Alice Boyse, who crept into his bed. Several people who were present at the time testified about this affront to public morality, but ultimately the charges against Eppes, a married man, were dismissed. Despite this lapse in decorum, in March 1629 he was made a commissioner of the monthly court for the "Upper Parts." His landholdings on the Eastern Shore were mentioned in patents secured in 1628 and 1629.4 
Anecdotebefore 3 May 1630 By 3 May 1630 William Epes was a member of the Council of St. Christopher's. On 18 July 1633 he made a power of attorney to William Stone concerning his land in Virginia. By the later 1630's he had returned to Ashford, Co Kent, England.2 
Will*13 January 1640/41William made a will on 13 January 1640/41 at Co Kent, England. He named a wife Margaret, son William and daughter Frances. Margaret, who came to Virginia in the George, 1621, married him by 1623.2 
Death*before 3 March 1642/43William died before 3 March 1642/43 at Co Kent, England. It was on this date that his will was probated..2

Birth*circa 1660Luke was born circa 1660 at Northampton Co, VA. 
Land inherited*1686He inherited land in 1686 at tract N43, between Cherition & Eastville, Northampton Co, VA. In 1660 Katherin Pennell left my plantation to her husband John. In 1661 he left to his son John. In 1663 there was patent to John Pannull for 260 acres formerly granted to Katherine Pannull, but no patent to her is of record. Her land may have included all or a part of the Pharoe Young and Thomas patents which she had inherited but no proof of this was found. In 1673 John Penewell traded his 260 acres here to Henry Marshman for the 200 acres of N26. In 1686 Henry Marshman (wife Sarah) left to sons Luke and Henry; nothing more was found about the latter. In 1691 Luke Masman (wife Elizabeth) left to a daughter Jane. In 1698 John and Elizabeth (Marshman) Fisher released to her daughter Jane any dower interest in the land lately belonging to Henry Marshman which descended to his son Luke and then to the latter's daughter Jane. After this there was a complete gap in the record of this land until bounds for adjacent lands give a Jacob Pitts as living here. No purchase by Pitts was found, but in 1742 he married Rachel Kelley and the land must have been hers. (NOTE: Whitelaw was not aware that in 1732 Sarah Sheppard, widow of Joseph Sheppard, left the 260 acre plantation were she lived to her daughter Rachel Kelly (under 21) and for want of her heirs to Sarah's brother-in-law Kendall Jacob. Evidently Jane died and it went to a younger sister Sarah, who was born after her father Luke wrote his will.)2 
Will - Father's*12 August 1686Luke was named in his father's will on 12 August 1686 at Northampton Co, VA. He was shown as son Luke Marshman in the will of Henry Marshman, wife Sarah. His brother Henry was under age 18.1 
Marriage*circa 1688He married Elizabeth Benthall, daughter of Joseph Benthall (I) and Mary (-----), circa 1688 at Northampton Co, VA.3 
Will*13 April 1691Luke made a will on 13 April 1691 at Northampton Co, VA. To my dau. Jane Masman livestock. To my beloved wife Elizabeth Masman remaining sheep and cattle. Remaining estate to be eq. div. by wife and dau. Jane. Wife extrx. Witt: Edward Ashbye, John 'O' Small.4

Anecdote*1710 Her mark resembles "V." Patience was a defendant in a court case in Northampton Co., VA, 1710. According to Purse & Person and Whitelaw, Patience married 1st Thomas Fisher and 2nd Francis Wainhouse. With the following information, compelling evidence is given that Patience married 3rd Thomas Marshall. In her will, probated November 8, 1765, Patience Marshall named her daughter Margaret (Wainhouse) Haggoman, a child of Francis Wainhouse named in his 1717 will. Margaret married first Joachim Michael and William Haggoman second. Sept 28, 1710, Court, Northampton Co., VA: this day the action of the case between Alexander Bagwell and Francis Wainehouse as marrying Patience Fisher executors of Thomas Fisher deceased defendant being called in July Court last and by consent of both plantiff and defendant...judgement is granted by the plantiff against the defendant for the sum of 400 pounds of tobacco to be paid out of the estate of Thomas Fisher deceased with cost of suit. (Frank V. Walczyk, Northampton Co. VA Orders & Wills 1698-1710, Vol. II, 1704-1710, Peter's Row, Coram, NY, 2001, p. 174) Thomas Marshall was named guardian to Francis and Margaret Wainhouse, for whom he filed an accounting in 1724. Accomack court records state that Thomas was made guardian for these orphans of Dorothy Wainhouse on her marriage. Dorothy was Francis Wainhouse, Sr.'s sister. She was probably the first guardian after his death and she married about 1715. The Accomack records do not say 'why' Thomas Marshall was named, but it appears he married Patience about 1718-19. Patience also named her grandson, Esme Baily, son of Edmund and Rose Bayly, in her will (although Isma Bayly was her great grandson by her granddaughter, Rose Fisher) and Thomas Marshall was Isma Bayly's guardian at the death of his father, Edmund Bayly in 1751. The administration of Thomas Fisher's estate was granted to Patience on behalf of herself and her children in 1709. Records show that Maddox Fisher was the son of Thomas Fisher; however, the names of any siblings are not provided. The use of the word "children" in the administration indicates more than one. A Tabitha Johnson, wife of John d. 1754, named her son Ismy; neither Tabitha Johnson nor Ismy Johnson were named by Patience (John predeceased and Tabitha's date of death is unknown) but there were many relations between the Marshalls and Johnsons. In addition, Patience's son, Francis Wainhouse married a Bridget Johnson. Patience named her children by Thomas Marshall in her will, including Esme Marshall, their eldest son. Based on approximate dates of birth for Maddox Fisher, Sr., the probate for Thomas Fisher's estate and marriage to Francis Wainhouse, Sr., Patience was probably ten or so years senior to Thomas Marshall. She would have married at about age 15 had children in her late 30's and lived into her 80's.4

In 1756 a William Bradford and his eldest son Levin (heir apparent) leased a part of the 500 acres given to him by his father in 1716 and confirmed in 1720 to another son Abel for the lives of William and Levin, but there is no later record of the death of that William. In clearing the land near the original home site for this part of the tract, fragments of 3 different tombstones were found; one of them seems to have been that of a William Bradford who died June 4, 1769 aged 44 years. He was therefore born too late to have been the original son William (of Nathaniel), but may have been his heir-at-law and the one who with his son Levin executed the lease of 1756. In any event, Levin Bradford was the next owner and in his will of 1772 he (wife Joana) named his son Zephaniah as his heir-at-law.2,5 
Death*circa 1760He died circa 1760.
