Biography*The assumption is that Comfort Littleton was the bastard child of Mary Littleton and that Stephen Walker was a son of Joseph Walker by his first wife before he married Mary Littlteton, making them step-brother & sister, and that Stephen Walker was the natural father of Comfort's children. Another possibility is that Comfort was a daughter of Joseph Walker, by his first wife before he married Mary Littleton and that Stephen Walker was her brother and she married an unknown son of Mark Littleton. Whatever the case, it had to be a close relationship since Stephen Walker left everything to Comfort Littleton and her daughters in his will of 1765 and Comfort named a niece Sally Walker in her will of 1782. The only Sally Walker found to date that was alive in 1782 was Sally S. Walker (1778-1858) who was a granddaughter of John Walker (1720-1796), who is assumed to be a son of Joseph Walker by his first wife before he married Mary Littleton. 
Birth*before October 1721Comfort was born before October 1721 at Accomack Co, VA. On 4 Apr 1722 it was recorded that at the November court Mary Lettleton was presented for fornication and having a bastard child; summoned to his court, Mary now failed to appear. Ordered that the sheriff take Mary into custody till she posted a bond for her appearance at the next court. On 8 Jan 1723/24 it was recorded that at the December court the sheriff was ordered to take Tho. Rew into custody for his appearance at this court to answer for fathering the child of Mary Lettleton, a single woman. After questioning him, the court ordered the sheriff to immediately take Rew into custody till he posted a bond to save the parish the cost of supporting the child and for his good behavior. He was also to pay court costs. (NOTE: The assumption is that Comfort Littleton was the bastard child.)1

He gave her daughter Charlotte Littleton 5 shillings and the balance of his estate to Comfort Littleton & her 2 daughters Elizabeth & Margaret Littleton.

Davis presented an account of 14 cattle and a bull that had strayed. Ordered that he deliver the cattle in his possession and enquire about the one gone astray. When found, it was to be delivered also. (NOTE: Since her father's will noted that the under age children should receive their share at age 18, she may have been 18 instead of the lawful age of 21. Her brother John received his share at 18.)4
