Director (of Jms & Ellinor) Smith (widow Twiford)

Birth*circa 1702Director (of Jms & Ellinor) Smith (widow Twiford) was born circa 1702 at Accomack Co, VA.1 
Will - Father's*26 March 1708Director was named in her father's will on 26 March 1708 at Accomack Co, VA. In his will James Smith, wife Ellinor, named sons Thomas, John, James (all under 18) and daughters Director, Joyce and Comfort (all under 14), and brothers Thomas Smith & Daniel Gore.1 
Marriage*circa 1727She married John (of James of Wm I) Twiford, son of James Twiford and Joan (-----), circa 1727 at Northampton Co, VA. No mention of a Dirctor Twiford was found in N'hamp or Accomack County records before her marriage to Moses Watson 1 Jan 1730/31. It therefore seems likely that she was the young widow of John Twiford, who Whitelaw shows died intestate after giving a bond to sell his part of tract A123 to Jacob Dewey in 1730 and was succeeded by a son James Twiford who exchanged this land with Richard and Tabitha Johnson in 1750. The assumption at this point (lacking further proof or dis-proof) is that she was Director Smith, the daughter of James & Ellinor Smith. This is based on the simple fact that Director is a very unusual named and there are almost no other choices based on the records available to date and she is the right age and in the general geographic area.2 
Married Namecirca 1727 As of circa 1727,her married name was Twiford. 
Marriage*1 January 1730/31She married Moses (of Robert II) Watson Senr., son of Robert Watson Jr. and Elizabeth (of John) Savage, on 1 January 1730/31 at Northampton Co, VA. Arthur Roberts and Geo Nicholas Turner were the securities on the M.L.B. of Moses Watson and Director Twiford and Ebenezer Tollman was a witness..3 
Married Name1 January 1730/31 As of 1 January 1730/31,her married name was Watson. 
Will - Husb's*14 March 1751Director was named in her husband's will on 14 March 1751 at Accomack Co, VA. She was shown as wife Direcktor Watson and named Extr in the will of Moses Watson..4

Watson, her granddaughter Sarah Scott, and her daughter-in-law (David Wattson's wife). The letter of attorney was proved by the oaths of Peter Watkinson and Jno. Onely. Luke Lalor, as attorney of Susanna Watson (widow of Robert Watson) presented and acknowledged the above deed of gift.5 
Will*22 November 1708He made a will on 22 November 1708 at Accomack Co, VA. To son John Wattson plantation where I now live with 130 acres after the death of my wife Elizabeth. To son David 135 acres where my son John now lives. To sons Robert & Peter land on the north side of Occohannock Creek. To sons Benjamin & Moses (under 18) my part of the Shallop &c. Daughter Susanna. Daughter Mary Bell. Daughter Elizabeth White & 6 sons residual legatees. Wife executrix. Witt: Fra: Wainhouse, Thomas Stringer & Luke Layler..6 
Death*before 1 February 1709Robert died before 1 February 1709 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that his will was proved..6 
Land left*1709He left land in 1709 at tract A3, Belle Haven, Accomack Co, VA. Robert Watson (wife Elizabeth) left a home place of 130 acres to his son John and to his son David a balance of 135 acres where John then lived.7 
Land left1709He left land in 1709 at tract A13, between Belle Haven & Craddockville, Accomack Co, VA. In 1708 Daniel Sullivant of Stafford County sold his 125 acres to Robert Watson and at the same time the widow of Dormand Silivant, now Elizabeth Hews, also of Stafford, sold to Watson her dower rights in the whole 250 acres. In 1709 Robert Watson left the whole 250 acres to his sons Robert and Peter. In 1711 Peter Watson sold his 125 acres to Dorman Sullivant. This seems strange, as Dormand had never sold his part to the father Robert Watson, so legally it should have been still his. A little later he and Robert Watson Jr., formally divided the 250 acres, but two years later (1713) Dorman Silivant, Inn dweller, sold his 125 acres to Robert Watson, Turner, so it was all together again. In 1751 Robert Watson left the 250 acres to sons Littleton and Robert, the latter to have the home place on the creek.8

As nearly as can be ascertained, this was a narrow north-and-south in the northeast corner of the whole tract.4

In 1775 Zerobabel (wife Keziah) left his home plantation to his son Arthur, Keziah Watson married Southy Northam and in 1792 they united with Arthur Watson in a deed to John Addison for 125 acres.6

Will - Father's*22 November 1708Peter was named in his father's will on 22 November 1708 at Accomack Co, VA. Sons Robert & Peter were left land on the north side of Occohannock Creek. Since sons Benjamin & Moses were the only sons shown as under age 18, the assumption is that all the others were at least 18 at the time..1 
Land inherited*1709He inherited land in 1709 at tract A13, between Belle Haven & Craddockville, Accomack Co, VA. In 1708 Daniel Sullivant of Stafford County sold his 125 acres to Robert Watson and at the same time the widow of Dormand Silivant, now Elizabeth Hews, also of Stafford, sold to Watson her dower rights in the whole 250 acres. In 1709 Robert Watson left the whole 250 acres to his sons Robert and Peter. In 1711 Peter Watson sold his 125 acres to Dorman Sullivant. This seems strange, as Dormand had never sold his part to the father Robert Watson, so legally it should have been still his. A little later he and Robert Watson Jr., formally divided the 250 acres, but two years later (1713) Dorman Silivant, Inn dweller, sold his 125 acres to Robert Watson, Turner, so it was all together again. In 1751 Robert Watson left the 250 acres to sons Littleton and Robert, the latter to have the home place on the creek.2

Deposition18 December 1680He gave a deposition on 18 December 1680 at Accomack Co, VA. Deposition of Robert Watson, Sr., aged about 57 years: About June or July Watson was at the house of John Watts (of Occaconson), who requested him to put up a note at the church door concerning a stray steer that had used the Watts pen for four or five years. Watson posted the note, and several persons noticed it. William Major told Watson that he knew of no one who lost such a steer, unless it would be Will. Smith, who was drowned going over the bay about seven or eight years ago. Afterwards the note was posted at the Mattompkin Church; there Capt. Wm. Custis looked at it and said he lost a steer, but the mark was different. Then Watson posted the note at Mr. Stratton's. Again, several people saw it, including Stratton and Capt. John Wallop, whose lost steer had a different mark. Wallop said he would go to Watts' pen and look at the animal, but he failed to do so. A while later, during killing time, Watts asked Watson and Guillam Vannettson to appraise the steer. Vannettson thought the steer was about five years old and might weigh 80 or 90 pounds a quarter when it was dressed. Saying it was better to over-value the steer, Watson suggested that they allow 100 pounds per quarter; 50 or 60 pounds tobacco would neither "make him or undo him." After allowing 50 lbs for the hide and 100 for the tallow and belly, the total came to 550 lbs. Watson told Watts that he should nail up the ears in some public place around his house "in view of all comers and goers." This was done. "If there be anything omitted by (me) that ought to be done according to law that is not inserted here, it is (my) ignorance and want of better judgment in law affairs. They are contentious, covetous and malicious persons that hath informed your worships with a parcel of untruths." Signed and sworn in open court on 16 December 1680, by Robt. Watson, Sr., and Guslin Venettson.3,25

Anecdote*1665 There seems little doubt that Peter Watson, brother of Robert Watson, first settled on Virginia's Eastern Shore. He could have lived on the 600 acres Robert Watson bought in 1665, between present-day Belle Haven and Painter. It is likely he was younger then his brother Robert.3

Tithable list1677He was on the list of tithables at Accomack Co, VA, in 1677. He was shown as Petr Watson with 1 tith on Jno. Wallop's List.7 
Anecdote*1678 He settled in present-day Worcester County, MD in 1678. His descendants lived in lower Worcester County and uppper Accomack County, VA. Some of Peter's descendants lived in upper Worcester County, other in Delaware, and some left the area for other states and other parts of Maryland. His brother Robert Watson, settled in lower Accomack County and his descendants remained mostly in St. George Parish, the lower parish of Accomack County, VA.8 
Will - Mentioned in*16 August 1678Peter was mentioned in a will on 16 August 1678 at Northampton Co, VA. Mary, the daughter of Peter Watson, was shown as a goddaugher and given one calf in the will of John Trueman, wife Francis.9 
Land patented*20 February 1679He patented land on 20 February 1679 at Mattapany Hundred, present-day Worcester Co, MD. He was granted 250 acres of land in the southern part of present-day Worcester County by Lord Baltimore. This acreage was due him for tansporting himself, his wife Jane, and children Peter, John and Mary into the province of Maryland. He named his patent Peterson and later deeds locate it as being on the west side of a branch of Swansicutt Creek. Modern maps show the villeage of Welbourne, MD in this area, and a small body of water - a widening of the creek at this point - is known locally as Big Mill. Descendants of Peter Watson have lived in the area to the present day.10,11 
Court - namd in suit*19 October 1681He was named in a lawsuit on 19 October 1681 at Accomack Co, VA. Peter Walker informed the court against Jane the wife of Peter Watson, declaring that about the night of 6 June, Jane entered into Walker's dwelling house and stole "one new broadcloth wearing coat made for and properly the goods and garment of the said Peter Walker." He also said that "six cheeses was carefully laid upon a shelf in the said house."After examining the evidences, the court referred the case to a jury. They found that Jane Watson was "not guilty in manner and form as she was presented." The court confirmed the verdict and discharged Jane.12 
Deposition named in*18 September 1688He was named in a deposition on 18 September 1688 at Chincoteague Island, Accomack Co, VA. (The first part of the following deposition was only partly legible) Deposition of John Collins aged about 38 years: Seven years ago during the month of June, Collins (who had since lived two years at Mr. Gore's (?) millhouse plus an additional five years (at an unreadable location)) and Willian Baugh (deceased) went fishing at Chingoteague Island. There they came upon a piece of clear ground with a house three board lengths long and built "upon posts." Collins spent a night in the house and noted that the corn growing there had been tended and weeded a short time before. There was about an acre of cleared ground protected by a "good brush fence." Collins knew it was done by Thomas Welburne or at his orders, being a neighbor. It was seated when Mr. Robert Sott (sic) lived at Chingoteague; Welburne had come over from the island to his house for provisions for his servants and workers. The weather being bad, Mr. Gore (then Collins' landlord) offered his man John Dean (a waterman) to go over with the provisions; Collins promised to go with him, but Welburne refused, saying he would go himself the next day. Welburne did so, and Mr. Scott went with him. (It was after this that Collins visited the island and saw the work that had been done.) Collins thought it might be eight years since he and Wm. Baugh had gone to the island. Several times since, in the company of John Dean, Peter Watson or his son, Collins had been there and had seen no corn growing. The fence was burned, but the house was standing. When he had first come over fron seating the island, Joseph Thorne told of how "they were very hard put to it and how that the wolves had run away with the porridge pot." Signed and sworn in open court by John (~) Collins.13 
Tithable list1692He was on the list of tithables at Accomack Co, VA, in 1692. The tithable list for this year showed Peter Watson with 2 tithes on Capt. Wallop's List and the following were on Capt. Bally's List: Robt Watson Sr. (3), David Waston (2), Robt. Watson Jr. (2) and Peter Watson (1).14 
Will - Brother's*24 July 1702Peter was named in his brother's will on 24 July 1702 at Accomack Co, VA. He was shown as my brother Peter Watson in the will of Robert Watson Sr..1 
Land gave*7 May 1703He deeded land as a gift on 7 May 1703 at tract Peterson, present-day Worcester Co, MD. It was on this date that Peter Watson gave his son Peter 50 acres of tract Peterson and on 10 Jan 1705 he sold the balance to Rowland Hodgson for 20 pounds.15 
Death*after 10 January 1705/6He died after 10 January 1705/6 at present day Worcester Co, MD. There is no record of Peter Watson's death, as he left no will and the settling of his estate has not been found. It is assumed that he died soon after he sold his remaining 200 acres in 1705/6.16
