Birth*circa 1650Henry Marshman Sr. was born circa 1650.1 
Marriage*circa 1668He married Sarah (-----) circa 1668.1 
Land Exchanged*1673Henry Marshman Sr. exchanged land in 1673 at tract N43, between Cherition & Eastville, Northampton Co, VA. In 1660 Katherin Pennell left my plantation to her husband John. In 1661 he left to his son John. In 1663 there was patent to John Pannull for 260 acres formerly granted to Katherine Pannull, but no patent to her is of record. Her land may have included all or a part of the Pharoe Young and Thomas patents which she had inherited but no proof of this was found. In 1673 John Penewell traded his 260 acres here to Henry Marshman for the 200 acres of N26. In 1686 Henry Marshman (wife Sarah) left to sons Luke and Henry; nothing more was found about the latter. In 1691 Luke Masman (wife Elizabeth) left to a daughter Jane. In 1698 John and Elizabeth (Marshman) Fisher released to her daughter Jane any dower interest in the land lately belonging to Henry Marshman which descended to his son Luke and then to the latter's daughter Jane. After this there was a complete gap in the record of this land until bounds for adjacent lands give a Jacob Pitts as living here. No purchase by Pitts was found, but in 1742 he married Rachel Kelley and the land must have been hers. (NOTE: Whitelaw was not aware that in 1732 Sarah Sheppard, widow of Joseph Sheppard, left the 260 acre plantation were she lived to her daughter Rachel Kelly (under 21) and for want of her heirs to Sarah's brother-in-law Kendall Jacob. Evidently Jane died and it went to a younger sister Sarah, who was born after her father Luke wrote his will.)2 
Will*12 August 1686Henry made a will on 12 August 1686 at Northampton Co, VA. To my loving wife Sarah Marshman 1/3 of my personal estate. To my two sons Luke and Henry Marshman my plantation to be eq. div. when Henry is of age. To my dau. Patience Marshman n. man Peter. To my dau. Sarah Marshman n. man Thomas Carey. To son Henry n. woman Lydia. To Joseph Hanby one ewe lamb. Remaining estate to be eq. div. by my four children Luke, Henry, Patience and Sarah Marshman when my eldest son Luke is at full age. Son Henry to be at age at 18 if his mother should marry, else to be at age when his mother chooses. Son Luke extr. My friends John Floyd and John Parkes to see that my estate is justly div. Witt: Benjamin Aydelott, Lettice (her L) Cripps, John 'J' Sparlin.1 
Death*before 29 November 1686He died before 29 November 1686 at Northampton Co, VA. It was on this date that his will was probated.1
