Birth*circa 1673Joseph (of Thos Sr) Dunton was born circa 1673 at Northampton Co, VA.1 
Land rec'd as gift*1695He received land as a gift in 1695 at tract N58, Bridgetown, N'hamp Co, VA. It was in this year that Thomas Dunton made a composite deed of gift, to take effect upon his death, for an equal division of the 600 acres among his five sons: Thomas, William, John, Benjamin and Joseph. In the document he made reference to the division lines which he had discussed with the sons, but unfortunately those lines were not in the deed so the exact division is uncertain except that the home part was to go his son Thomas. Three of the portions, except for a small part which went out of the family, were soon aborbed by the other two.1 
Marriage*circa 1700He married Elizabeth Isaac, daughter of John Isaac I and Amey Costin, circa 1700 at Northampton Co, VA.2 
Death*before 1724Joseph (of Thos Sr) Dunton died before 1724 at tract N58, Bridgetown, Northampton Co, VA. Joseph Dunton had died intestate and had been succeeded by a son Joseph who also died intestate and the title passed to the latter's sister Comfort, who now sold to her cousin Rickards Dunton, son of William.1
