Married Namecirca 1644 As of circa 1644,her married name was Truitt. 
Death*before 12 November 1645Frances Peddenton died before 12 November 1645 at Northampton Co, VA. On 12 Nov 1645 Hen. Pedenden saith in open court that Frances Trewitt lying sick at his house stated that her husband George Trewitt might sell her land at the Old Plantation whereupon Henry answered saying do you know what you desire, and she replied saying "why father" the land is mine and he is my husband, and I desire that he might do with it has he please. (NOTE: It seems that if she had children they would have been mentioned in this deposition and when her husband was issued the certificate for the land on this same day it would have been on behalf of her children.)2,4 
Land cert named in*12 November 1645She was named in a certificate for land on 12 November 1645 at Northampton Co, VA. A certificate was granted unto Geo: Trewett in right of his wife Frances Granell(?) deceased for 200 acres of land for transporting Richard Cainhoe, William Deacon, Francis Gefford and Richard Cox.5

Smith for transporting of 4 persons: Richard Cainhoe, Fran. Jefferys, Wm. Deaton & Richard Cox. Whitelaw shows that this 200 acres was originally patented to Capt. Thomas Graves in 1628 and since neither of his sons remained here to claim the land it was patented to George Truhett in 1651. On 1 Sep 1663 a patent for this 200 acres went to William Melling as deserted by Frances the widow(sic) of George Trewitt. Nugent shows it had been granted unto Frances Trevitt &c, and Melling got it by inquisition dated 17 Apr 1663. (NOTE: On 11 Nov 1645 George Truitt was issued a land certificate in right of his wife Frances dec'd.)6,7,5
