Birth*circa 1696Thomas was born circa 1696 at Accomack Co, VA.2 
Will - Father's*15 August 1712Thomas was named in his father's will on 15 August 1712 at Accomack Co, VA. In his will Thomas Bagwell gave son Thomas plantation where I now live containing 165 acres. To son John my part of Cedar Island. Wife & 5 daughters Elizabeth, Susanna, Ann, Comfort & Sara residual legatees. Sons under 18 - Daus. under 16 - Wife (no name) Exec. Brother John Bagwell & cousin Henry Bagwell trustees. Witt: Sarah Metcalf, John Metcalf, James Davis.2 
Land inherited*1713He inherited land in 1713 at tract A66, east of Locustville, Accomack Co, VA. In 1713 Thomas Bagwell (his wife was living but not named in the will) left his home plantation to his son Thomas, who (wife Elizabeth) died intestate in 1740 and was succeeded by a son William. In 1753 he also died intestate and is belived to have been followed by a son Isaiah, who (wife Sarah) left a will in 1764, but made no mention of his lands, so after that date there is a good deal of uncertainty about the title. In 1783 processioning returns showed a Stephen Bagwell and a John Kellam to have been the landowners in this vicinity.3

In 1713 Thomas Bagwell (his wife was living but not named in the will) left his home plantation to his son Thomas, who (wife Elizabeth) died intestate in 1740 and was succeeded by a son William. In 1753 he also died intestate and is belived to have been followed by a son Isaiah, who (wife Sarah) left a will in 1764, but made no mention of his lands, so after that date there is a good deal of uncertainty about the title.

Thomas Leatherbury (Leatherbarrow)1

M, b. before 16 March 1621/22, d. before 19 August 1673
Last Edited23 Aug 2017
Birth*before 16 March 1621/22Thomas was born before 16 March 1621/22 at Ormskirk, Lancashire, England. It was on this date that he was christened..1 
Anecdote*1638 This Thomas Leatherbury was the first and only known ancestor of the Leatherbury family in America. It was assumed that he came from England, and from the record of his entry into Maryland in 1638, it is also assumed that his name before he came to the Colonies was Leatherborough or Leatherbarrow. This implies that he was a relative of the family of the same name having many members living near the cities of Liverpool and Manchester, in the county of Lancaster, England. Thomas Leatherbury was in Maryland by 1638 when he received 100 acres of land as head rights for transporting himself into the colony. He reassigned this property to Randall Revell, who was a cooper. One might assume this land was payment for an apprenticeship as a cooper, since Thomas later became a cooper by trade. He had settled near Onancock, Accomack County, Virginia before 1645 and this property became his home property. He was also a planter or farmer, and by the time of his death in 1673, he was able to leave more than 3500 acres of land that was divided between his two sons Charles and Perry. In November of 1660, he and several other men, who included Ambrose Dixon, Henry Voss, Henry White and Levin Denwood, were taken to trial in Jamestown and convicted for breach of the law concerning Quakers. Leatherbury, Dixon and White were found guilty, but the court did not penalize them (see page 303, Torrence). Most of these men eventually moved out of the Colony of Virginia and into the Colony of Maryland, where they could more freely practice their religion.1 
Marriage*circa 1645He married Eleanor Perry (Perry?) circa 1645. 
Land bought*1659Thomas Leatherbury (Leatherbarrow) bought land in 1659 at tract A62, Accomack Co, VA. In 1659, he purchased a 300-acre tract of land from James Jones and a building on this property was used as a Quaker Meetinghouse. Alexander Maddox also owned adjoining property, and in 1683, Charles Leatherbury, son and heir of Thomas, sold this property to Thomas Maddox, son and heir of Alexander. This property is the first known place used for a Quaker Meetinghouse on the Eastern Shore of Virginia (see page 499, Whitelaw). Alexander Maddox first married Elizabeth ..?.., and secondly, he married Eleanor White. He died in Northampton County, Virginia, before 26 February 1659/1660. In the Court of 10 November 1663, Thomas Maddox, the eldest son of Alexander Maddox, chose Edmund Bowman as his guardian. It is also known that the widow of Alexander Maddox married William Bosman before 1663 (see Torrence, page 451),while the widow of Thomas Leatherbury married Edmund Bowman before 1677 (see Whitelaw, page 1040).1 
Administrator*29 December 1662Thomas was named as administrator of an estate on 29 December 1662 at Northampton Co, VA. It was on this date that administration on the estate of Mary Adums, servant was granted to Thomas Leatherbury. Several depositions refer to her death which resulted in a debt suit involving her former master Thomas Mountfort.2 
Will*3 July 1673Thomas made a will on 3 July 1673 at Accomack Co, VA. To eldest son Charlss Leatherbury plantation where I now live after the death of my wife Ellenor, reversion to my second son George Leatherbury. To my second son Perry Leatherbury (under 21) 600 acres at Onancock Creek, also 300 acres adjoining it & 1000 acres purchased of Capt. John West, reversion to son Charles - Wife Ellenor resid, legatee & Exec. Witt: Ja: Matts, John Jenkins, Daniell Byles.3 
Death*before 19 August 1673He died before 19 August 1673 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that his will was proved.3

Anecdote* Per Y-DNA testing of continuous male line descendants, the immigrants William Burton, who married Ann Stratton, and Robert (Spencer) Burton, who married Elizabeth Cotton, are NOT of same bloodline. The immigrant William Burton is of the same bloodline as the Burtons of Longner Hall, in Shroipshire, England. This is documented in "The Burton DNA Project" web page Y-Results Chart. See Haplogroup R1b-Lineage V. Haplogroup R1b-Lineage VII is where you find Bob Burton's (of Perry, GA) Y-DNA results (ID 70031) and those of Clayton Burton (ID 210977), another direct descendant of Robert (Spencer) Burton. Bob descends from son Robert Burton Jr and Clayton descends from son William Burton, who settled in Worcester Co, MD, south of the Indian River, at one time the boundary between Delaware and Maryland. They lived across the river from each other.6

Last Edited20 Dec 2016
Birth*circa 1660Catherine was born circa 1660. 
Marriage*11 February 1676/77She married Robert (Spencer) Burton I on 11 February 1676/77 at Accomack Co, VA. Some have suggested that she was Catherine Cotton, a daughter of William Cotton & his wife (-----) Petyon, William being a son of Rev. William Cotton and his wife Ann Graves of Northampton Co, VA. However Rev. Wm. Cotton's will of 20 Aug 1640 did not mention a son William and Dorman, Vol 2, p. 133/135, does not show a son William. Evidently Rev. Wm. Cotton left only a daughter Verlinda Cotton who married 1st Thomas Burdett and 2nd Richard Boughton. Bob Burton of Perry, GA provided the following: There is Bible record at the Delaware Archives which states that Robert Burton the first...William Burton, son of Robert, born Nov 19, 1677. Robert Burton 1st was married to Catherine Cotton Feb 11, 1676. William Burton and Frances was married Dec 29, 1700. (NOTE: If she was a Cotton from Accomack County, perhaps she was related to some of the following Cottens/Cottons named in Accomack County records between 1665 and 1692: 1) James Cotten who was on a 1665 land certificate for John Williams and on a 1666 land certificate for Robert Johnson, 2) Thomas Cotten who was on a 1665/6 land certificate for David Williamson and on 1672/3 land certificate for Christopher Thompson, 3) William Cotten who was on a 1666 land certificate for Henry White, or 4) John Cotton, a servant boy judged to be age 14 in Mar 1678/9 and was given his freedom in Feb 1691/2.)1,2,3 
Married Name11 February 1676/77 As of 11 February 1676/77,her married name was Burton. 
Land sold*20 September 1692Catherine Cotton (Cotton?) sold land on 20 September 1692 at tract A126, Bloxom, Accomack Co, VA. Robert Burton and wife Catherine, late of Accomack Co, VA now of Sussex Co, in the teritory of Pennsylvania, sold to Richard Hinman, of Accomack County...for 20,000 pounds of tobacco and cask and two ewes...400 acres of land situate, lying and being in Accomack County on the northern side of the northern branch of ye forked branches of the middle branch of Muddy Creek and bounded on ye southern part therewith beginning at ye marked trees of George Truit Junior, now in the possession of John Barnes and formerly known by the name of Joseph Newtons land...being by me the said Robert Burton by ye name of Robert Spencer and Baptist Newcome then of Accomack County purchased of Lt.

Esme was the eldest son of Thomas Marshall and shown as Ishmael on some documents. (Northampton Orders 1732-1742, pp. 405, 443; Accomack District Court Orders 1789-1797, p. 300, copied by James Marshall) He was in Worcester Co., MD by 1760. On 1 Sept 1764, Esme and Mary** sold 250A of 'Hog Quarter' to George Layfield and John Nairn for 5 shillings, Mary was under age. In 1767, he sold 269A in Northampton and purchased 'Rudder' at Pitts Creek Hundred. Esme's son, Thomas, bought 'Rudder' from Esme in 1772. 'Rudder,' 'Brittingham's Chance,' and 'Brittingham's Addition,' were all acquired by Esme from the widow of descendants of Elijah Brittingham. (Ruth T. Dryden, Land Records of Worcester Co. MD, pp. 75, 134, 394, 533) **The land abstract for 'Hog Quarter' shows Esme and wife Mary sold...she was under age. Mary Nairn was named by her grandfather in 1732, so she could not have been under age in 1764. It is suspicious that Mary Nairn died by 1764 and Esme married a second time to a Mary, possibly Mary Brittingham, daughter of Elijah. Mary Nairn is not named in the tri-partie agreement before the marriage of her mother, Janet Nairn, to Jabez Pitts, nor is she named in the 1771 will of her brother, John. The 1771 will of John Nairn, Mary's brother, provided the names of Mary and Esme's children, as Esme died without a will. Bonds were posted 5 Oct 1784 for the administration of Esme's estate in Worchester Co, MD by George Marshall, Thomas Marshall and John Marshall rejected the administration. Thomas and John Marshall provided inventory and the next of kin were listed as Levin and Theophilus Marshall.(Ruth Dryden, Worcester Admin. Bonds & Inventories, p. 15) John Nairn named the children of his sister, Mary: Thomas, John, Robert and William. NOTE: The George Marshall who administered the estate is probably the same George Marshall for whom Thomas, son of Esme, holds a mortgage in Worcester County. He is not named in the will of John Nairn as a child of Mary Nairn, nor is he named in the will of William Allen. Patience Marshall who married William Waller is not named by John Nairn or William Allen. George and Patience might have been children from Esme's second marriage; George may have been a child of the second marriage and Patience deceased by 1771. That they were children of Esme is not proved and based in large part on the names of their children--George Esme Marshall and Esme Marshall Waller. The 1810 census of Worcester County shows what looks like Isme or Ismel Marshall as 45+ with one female 10-16 and one female 26-45. If this is Isme, he is too old to be Esme's grandson. Again, neither John Nairn nor William Allen named an      Isme/Esme in their wills.4 
Heir - named as*24 March 1771Esme was named as an heir on 24 March 1771 at Worcester Co, MD. In his will of this date, John Nairne named Robert, Thomas and William Allen Marshall, sons of Esme Marshall; and also sister Mary Marshall's children..3 
Death*1784Esme died in 1784 at Worcester Co, MD.2

Birth*before 22 September 1732Mary was born before 22 September 1732 at Worcester Co, MD.2 
Anecdote*1734 Mary was named in the will of her grandfather in 1732 and by her cousin, Francis Drummond, in 1741. Her father only named two of her children in his 1761 will (Robert Henry Marshall and Elizabeth Marshall). Mary was not named in the Tri-Partie deed by her mother in 1767. In his 1771 will, John Nairn named the children of his sister Mary, but did not name her specifically. A deed for "Hog Quarter" abstracted by Ruth Dryden shows Esme Marshall and his wife Mary and that Mary was under age. It appears Mary Nairn died before September 1, 1764, the date of the deed for "Hog Quarter." He m. 2nd about 1764 Mary Brittingham, dtr of Elijah Brittingham & Sarah Newbold. She was called Mary Brittingham in her father's will. Esme Marshall and his under age wife, Mary, sold "Hog Quarter" for 5 shillings to George Layfield and John Nairn. Layfield and Nairn would have been relations to Esme's wife, Mary Nairn. Esme's first wife, Mary Nairn, would not have been under age in 1764. Mary Brittingham may have been Esme's second wife.3 
Marriage*circa 1745She married Esme Marshall, son of Maj. Thomas Marshall and Patience 'V' (-----), circa 1745.2
