Court - namd in suit*18 January 1680/81Peter Parker was named in a lawsuit on 18 January 1680/81 at Accomack Co, VA. Peter Parker (attorney: Cha. Holden), who commenced a suit against William Tayler, Sr., produced a condition in which he had agreed to plant at Tayler’s with three of his “hands” for a full share of the 1679 crops of tobacco and corn. Parker claimed that he had performed his part of the bargain, but Tayler refused to give Parker any share of the crop and had disposed of eleven hogsheads of tobacco for his own use. Tayler had also detained a heifer (and her increase) that had formerly been given to Parker. The court ordered that the difference be referred to the next court, where Tayler was to give a full accounting of the crop, both sold and unsold.
Deposition of Tarlow Cary aged about 18 years: Last summer Cary saw Tayler deliver to his overseer, Peter Parker, a year old heifer that now has a calf. Signed and sworn in open court 18 January 1680/81, by Tarlo (H) Care.

William Tayler, Sr., began action against Peter Parker for 5000 lbs tobacco for damages for neglecting the crop when he was Tayler’s overseer and also for 314 lbs tobacco for a debt. The court ordered that this action be deferred to the next court, along with Parker’s suit.3

Marriage*5 April 1720He married Mary Selby, daughter of Daniel Selby I and Mary Parker, on 5 April 1720.2 
Land bought*1722William (25) Andrews (IV) bought land in 1722 at tract A126, Bloxom, Accomack Co, VA. John Hinman, Yeoman, of Sussex Co, DE, sold all of his inheritance to William Andrews. In 1740 he deeded 800 acres to Robert Andrews in trust, providing that William and wife Mary were to remain there as long as they lived, and then it was to go to their son William. In a deed for property elsewhere in 1753, it was revealed that Mary had been the widow of Daniel Gore, who had been the grandfather of another Daniel Gore living in that year.3 
Anecdote*1730 In 1730 the Assembly appointed Mr. Andrews' warehouse landing at Guilford as the place to be used in this section as the Guilford Tobacco Warehouse.4 
Anecdote*4 July 1732 On 4 Jul 1732 he took oath as justice of Accomack County.2 
Anecdote1740 In 1740 it was ordered by the Court, being informed by John Snead, Gentleman, who was directed to view the Warehouses at Guilford, that William Andrews the proprietor of the said Houses had refused to find sufficient House Room and to repair the said Houses and the Presses. It was ordered that Ralph Justice and Jabez Pitt the Inspectors at the said Houses do agree with Workmen to be paid by the County to build and repair the same.4 
Court - nam in motio*28 May 1741He was named in a motion that was recorded in court records on 28 May 1741 at Accomack Co, VA. On the motion of Ralph Justice, it was ordered that William Andrews be summoned to the next court to show why he did not become administrator of the estate of Selby Gore, decd. (NOTE: Selby Gore's mother Mary Selby married first Daniel Gore (died by 1720) and married second William Andrews, who was alive when Selby died, and would have been the logical choice to settle his step-son's estate. It should also be NOTED that Ralph Justice was normally a justice on the court and had been a justice the day before (26 May 1741) and the day after (30 Jun 1741), but was not a justice on this day, probably because he brought this and another action before the justices for a decision. Therefore he must have had some personal interest in settleing Selby Gore's estate.)5 
Land bought*1743He bought land in 1743 at tract A138, Mappsville, Acc Co, VA. Ryley and Thomas Slocombe sold united in a deed to William Andrews for land in this tract where Robert Slocomb the elder formerly lived.

Land gave*1745William deeded land as a gift in 1745 at tract A126, Bloxom, Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that William Andrews gave 130 acres of this tract to his daughter Leah, the wife of James Pettigrew. It was the east end of the land along the bayside road. After the death of Pettigrew in 1772, Leah gave this land to her son John, and 5 years later he and wife Anne sold it, along with some other acreage, to Nathaniel L. Savage of Northampton, who by that time had become the owner of the rest of the Andrews land..3 
Security on Admin*27 August 1751He was security on the administration of an estate on 27 August 1751 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that administration on the estate of Jacob Morgan was granted to Arnold Morgan with William Andrews securities.7
