Death*1 March 1747Arthur died on 1 March 1747. In a land cause recorded in Acc Co Court on 27 Mar 1753 it was brought out that Arthur Robins, the eldest son of Arthor Robins, died on 1 Mar 1746. According to Mrs. Turman's research the will of Arthur Robins II was lost and the eldest son claimed all the land as if his father had died intestate. After a lengthly chancery suit, contents of the will were recorded as stated by the widow Ann. Son Arthur got the home place and most of the land as provided for in his father's will and his younger brother got a small acreage and personal property. Nothing further was found about his widow Ann after this suit was settled and the contents of Arthur's will was recorded in 1754 (N'hamp Wills & Inventories, 1750-1754, pp. 539-544)..4

Anecdote* John Barnes III died without a will in 1753 leaving a widow Mary, and Whitelaw shows a son Archibald was his eldest son and inherited his land. In 1756, being age 14, Archibald (orphan of John Barnes) chose Charles Gill as his guardian. In 1760 Spencer Barnes was bound out to Joshua Hall. In 1761 Charles Gill agreed to keep Archibald for the profits of his estate. In 1761 Sacker Barnes was bound out to Ruben Folger. In 1763 John Barnes was bound out to Joshua Hall. In 1765 Holt Barnes was bound out to Major Cole and in 1770 Preeson Barnes was bound out to Charles Gill. (NOTE: Although only Archibald was shown as an orphan of John Barnes, evidently the others were also orphans of John, as John was the only Barnes who died without a will the right time to have had these other sons.)5

Scarburgh (guardian to William Abbot, orphan of John Abbot) petitioned for division of the estate of John Abbot, who died intestate. He left an estate which was now in the possession of and administered by Elizabeth Abbot, the widow. Ordered that the estate be divided with the petitioners giving security and receiving the part of the estate beloning to each of the children. Ordered that the men who appraised the estate divide it. The following day, Elizabeth Abbot petitioned that some of the orphans "had been advanced some of the estate" during the lifetime of their father; she asked for clarification of what belonged to each of her children, so the dividers could proceed. After consideration, the court ordered that the estate be strictly divided according to the law and that a report be made to the next court. (NOTE: Based on this, she either had children of her own or may have been the mother of John and William Abbot. However, the 1718 will of John Abbott names my mother-in-law (step-mother)'s daughter Mary. So Elizabeth was evidently the step-mother of these two orphans.)4

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.

(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.

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).11

Heir - named as*30 December 1718Mary was named as an heir on 30 December 1718 at Accomack Co, VA. She was shown as Mary, the daughter of my mother-in-law (step-mother), in the will of John Abbott..1 
Marriage*circa 1730She married John Chambers, son of Jonathan Chambers I and Mary Jones, circa 1730 at Accomack Co, VA.2 
Married Namecirca 1730 As of circa 1730,her married name was Chambers. 
Will - Mother's*4 February 1742/43Mary was named in her mother's will on 4 February 1742/43 at Accomack Co, VA. She was shown as daughter Mary Chambers in the will of Elizabeth Nock. She also named John Chambers (among others) to receive a portion of the balance of her estate.2 
Anecdote*September 1745 In September 1745, William Fitzgerrald and his new wife Amberlain were sleeping together, but not in the bed they had been promised. Before the marriage, William's father, John Fitzgerrald, was trying to ensure a comfortable future for William and Amberlain, but he did not want to do it alone. He therefore took his son's fiance with him to see Jonathan Chambers, a relative of hers-she was "the Child of his Wife's sister's Bastard." John told Chambers that he would give his son a piece of land if he married Amberlain, and he expected that Chambers would give them something, too, since she was a relative. Chambers, who had been drinking, replied that he had always intended to give Amberlain a feather bed and furniture if she married a man he approved of, and he did approve of William; as soon as they were married, he would deliver the items. After the marriage, however, the young couple never received the bed. The jury trying the case found that the promised gift would have been worth £5:00:00, but they were not sure that the promise made by Chambers was binding. The justices, who were to make the final ruling, did not do so till November 1747; they then ordered Chambers to pay William and Amberlain the value of the wedding gift he never gave.3

Deed of Nathaniel Jackson, Planter to George Parker, Millwright of Sussex County, Territory of Pennsylvania. Whereas a William Parker, deceased, grandfather of the said Nathaniel Jackson was in his lifetime seized of and in a tract of land and marsh lying on Herring Creek near Phenix's Island on the seaboard side of the county cont. 370 acres and so thereof seized died and left issue at his death being a daughter Scarborough who intermarried with a Jonas Jackson of Northampton County Virginia, father of the above Nathaniel by whom she had issue being the grantor, her eldest son and other children and since died seized of the said land by means whereon the said Nathaniel Jackson as son and heir of the said Scarborough was entitled to the said land by descent from the said William Parker, his grandfather, now this indenture further witnesseth that for the sum of 40 pounds current money of Maryland, Jackson sells to Parker all his right, title and property claim in or to the said land and marsh whereof the said William Parker, his grandfather was formerly seized of lying on Herring Creek and commonly called "The Sand Hill" bounded as per the original patent and cont. 370 acres with all buildings, improvements, etc. Signed: Nathaniel Jackson.

This is why he leaves his son Nathaniel Jackson only 5 shillings. Nathaniel had already inherited this land at his mother’s death. The tract was located in modern Sussex, Delaware with initial bounder near 38/28/06N, 75/06/27W. Just to its east was the tract Brotherhood, laid out in 1689 for Joseph Robinson, John Parker, Philip Parker, and George Parker (all of Accomack Co, Virginia). (NOTE 2: Phenix's Island IS FENWICK ISLAND. It is a barrier Island like Assateague and is between the Altantic Ocean and Assateague Bay. Most of this Island is in Delaware but the lower half is in today was ins Worcester Co. MD. Worcester County MD. was formed out of Somerset County MD in 1742. Gail Walczyk)
