It was in this year that James Stran sold to Solomon Gladding 100 acres, which he said he had bought from John Aleworth by a General Court deed, and 5 years later (1767) Comfort Ailworth, as widow of John, released her dower rights to Gladding. The deed called for only 100 acres, but it seems to have been for the full 140 acres owned by John Aleworth. Solomon & Mary Gladding in 1770 sold 114 1/2 acres to James Benston and 25 1/2 acres to James Hopeman, but later in the year they also sold 50 acres to Abner Burton, which they said was a part of the land they had sold to Benston.5

Land sold*before 1770He sold land before 1770 at tract A130, South Side Messongo Creek, Acc Co, VA. No disposition by grandson Jonathan Aleworth was noted, but the land later appeared in the possession of Southy Northam; when he disposed of it he said he had bought from Jonathan Aleworth, so that also probably was a General Court transaction. In 1770 Southy and Mary Northam sold 60 acres to Abner Burton. In 1773 the Northams sold 116 acres of Solomon Boston, and two years later he and wife Betty sold 108 acres to Nathan Milbourn.4

Rachel Ashby1

F, b. circa 1720, d. before 26 March 1751
Last Edited22 Nov 2015
Birth*circa 1720Rachel Ashby was born circa 1720 at Accomack Co, VA. It seems obvious that Rachel fits into either Edward's or Charles' Ashby families, but I'm not quite sure which. If I had to choose today I'd guess she was an unwed daughter of Edward's son Washbourne (23) Ashby (1689-after 1739) and a sister of Ezekiel Ashby (1711-1764). Washbourne was born in N'hamp Co, but ended up in Accomack Co. where Rachel was located. The last record of him that I have found so far is in 1739 with no will or administration or other mention of his death. Since the other Ashbys of this time period did have wills or administrations they can be (sort of) ruled out, but sometimes all children were not mentioned in wills & administrations.1 
Will - Mentioned in19 July 1749Rachel was mentioned in a will on 19 July 1749 at Accomack Co, VA. In his will John Metcalf, wife Elizabeth, left his son William 1/6 of my land where Rachel Ashby now lives. She also witnessed the will along with Thomas Parramore and John Bagwell.2 
Ordinary license*27 March 1750Rachel was granted a license to keep an ordinary 27 March 1750 at Accomack Co, VA. Jesse Jenkinson, Rachel Ashby and Bartholomew Taylor were all licensed to keep ordinaries at their houses for one year.3 
Death*before 26 March 1751She died before 26 March 1751 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that administration on the estate of Rachel Ashby was granted to Thomas Parramore with Thomas Teackle security. Jacob Badger, John Wharton, William Kellam and Henry Rodgers (or three of them) were to appraise the estate.4,5 
Court - name in stat*28 May 1751She was named in a statement that was recorded in court records on 28 May 1751 at Accomack Co, VA. The grand jury presented the following against whom process was to issue: The overseer of the road from Rachel Ashbee's to Burton's Branch.6 
Est inv filed*26 November 1751She's inventory was recorded on 26 November 1751 at Accomack Co, VA. In obedience to an order of Court dated 26 Mar 1751 we the subscribers hath inventoried and appraised the estate of Rachel Ashby dec'd as follows: 1 Matt … 1 bed cord … 1 sinnon wheel - £0.6.7; 4 Knives & forks … 2 old books - £0.3.3; 1 Frying pan & skillet - £0.1.8; 1 Pair of shoes … a pair of wool cards - £0.4.2; 3 ½ lb of hackled flax … 5 lb of shingles - £0.5.0; 12 lb of Lowo(?) … of thread £0.4.6; 1 Pair of fire tongs … some dryed beef - £0.3.6; Some unbroken flax and corn - £0.1.3; 3 Bowls … ½ dozen pewter plates - £0.12.0; Some old pewter … & 112 lbs of bacon - £1.1.9; Cash - £2.1.1; 1 Tub & bucket, 2 baskets, 1 bottle and Parcel of Trumpery - £0.3.0; 5 Low chairs, 1 cock and 4 hens & 200 feet of plank - £0.14.3; 1 Gound and salt, 1 old gun & wheat & parcel of clothes - £1.1.6; Earthen Ware sugar box & drinking glass - £0.1.0; A pair of gloves & some reminants of linen - £0.6.0; 1 woolen wheel … molasses & etc. - £0.17.7; 1 Old Cage, 1 Slay & 4 gallons of Rum - £0.19.6; Cash - £0.10.9. Signed: Thomas Parramore Admr, Jacob Badger, John Wharton & William Kellam. Returned to Court on 26 Nov 1751 & admitted to record. (NOTE: The 4 gallons of rum was probably the result of her having a license to operate an Ordinary in her home. Due to the very small nature of this estate, there were no other documents found to be associated with settling her estate.)7,8 
Orphan's Bond*30 October 1759She was named in an orphan's bond on 30 October 1759 at Accomack Co, VA. Ordered that Thomas Ashby Orphan of Rachel Ashby aged Fifteen Years or thereabouts be bound by the Church Wardens of Accomack Parish to John Beech till lawful age to learn the trade of Cart Wheelwright.1
