In 1688 Smaw, wife Ann, left to sons John and Andrew but the former died without issue. In 1735 Andrew Smaw left the 100 acres to wife Elishe and then to a son John under entail. (NOTE: Research indicates that in fact John did have issue, and that it was probably John's son Andrew who left the 100 aces to wife Elishe, not the elder brother Andrew.)3

Will - Father's12 August 1700John was named in his father's will on 12 August 1700 at Northampton Co, VA. William Baker, wife Mary, left his 2 sons John & William Baker (under 21) 600 acres bought of William Willett, John to have the wester bounds and William the other half. If his unborn child was a son then he to have the 200 acres in between sons John and William. NOTE: The full version of the will shows son John as under 18.1,2

Marriagecirca 1709He married Margaret (-----) circa 1709.4 
Land inherited*1709John Baker inherited land in 1709 at tract N17, between Capeville & Cheriton, Northampton Co, VA. In 1696 William and Ann Willett sold 600 acres of this tract to William Baker. Two years later William and Mary Baker deeded it back to Willett so he could give them a new deed with a better description of the land and title. In 1700 William Baker (wife Mary) left to sons John and William, the former to have the western or settled part: if an unborn child was a son, he also was to share in the land. Nothing more was found concerning young William or a posthumous son. The widow Mary married Benjamin Griffith and in 1709 the Griffiths released to John Baker her dower interest in the land. In 1720 John Baker (wife Margaret) left the home part to son Josias and the rest of son John. He also had daughters Comfort and Hannah. Neither of the sons lived to enjoy the land and Margaret is known to have married a Tennant.5

Birth*circa 1695Francis was born circa 1695 at Northampton Co, VA. 
Marriage*circa 1718He married Sarah (22) Freshwater, daughter of George (6) Freshwater and Elizabeth Mears, circa 1718 at Northampton Co, VA.3 
Will - Father's*13 March 1720/21Francis was named in his father's will on 13 March 1720/21 at Northampton Co, VA. He was shown as my son Francis in the will of Francis Costin, wife Isabell. He was given 50 acres bought of John Moor and for want of heirs to his son Jacob (under 18).4 
Marriage*circa 1734He married Agnes Somers, daughter of Thomas Somers and Ann (-----), circa 1734 at Northampton Co, VA. According to Whitelaw in 1750 Francis Costin (wife Agnes) left 110 acres in tract N9 on the bayside to his son Francis. Whitelaw assumed that his wife had been the former Agnes Somers and title to the land had come to him through her and that she had gotten it by the 1703 will of Daniel Neech left his balance of 110 acres to wife Margaret, but if she did not make disposition it was to go to Thomas and Agnes Somers. Whitelaw also conjectured that this Agnes then married Azariah Scott, as 8 years later the death of Costin the Scotts sold the same land to John Wilson. Then in tracing the owership of tract N10 Whitelaw found evidence confirming the previous assumptoin that Francis Costin had married the widow Agnes Somers and that she late married Azariah Scot of tract N9 was found in a deed from the Scotts to Matthew Costin for her dower interest in the land left to him by Francis Costin. (NOTE: One concern here is that the Agnes Somers mentioned in the will of Daniel Neech was born circa 1680 and therefore would have been somewhat older then either Francis Costin or Azariah Scott, but it does support the owership of the land. Perhaps her brother (not husband) Thomas Somers, who died intestate in 1728, had a daughter Agnes who inherited the land and married Costin and Scott.)5,6
