John Dewman (Dowman)1

M, b. circa 1655, d. before 18 May 1715
Last Edited9 Jan 2019
Birth*circa 1655John Dewman (Dowman) was born circa 1655. The name is spelled various ways in early Northampton County records: Dewman, Dowman, Duman, Doweman. Whitelaw standardized it to Dewman.1 
Marriagecirca 1680He married Margaret Eshon, daughter of Daniel Eshon I and Margaret Howell, circa 1680.2 
Land bought*1710John Dewman (Dowman) bought land in 1710 at tract N87, Franktown, Northampton Co, VA. In 1704 Benjamin Walter left his part of this tract to his wife Elizabeth, who married William Hintch and 6 years later she alone sold it to John Dweman, who left no will, but in 1718 a Daniel Dewman left the same land to his brother Nathaniel. In 1738 Nathaniel left to his brother Jacob Dewman, but the will must have been written some years earlier, as the will of Jacob was probated in 1734. In it the latter mentioned a wife Bridget and daughters Rosannah and Elizabeth. In 1752 Joachim Michael (wife Margaret) left to his son Thomas half of this land which he said he had bought from John and Rose Waterfield. No deed had ever been given to him, so the same day the will was probated the Waterfields executed a deed to Thomas Michael, and the next year he purchased the other half from Baily and Elizabeth Scott, she being the other Dewman heir.2 
Will - Extr*20 October 1711He was named as the executor of a will on 20 October 1711 at Northampton Co, VA. He was shown as my friend John Dowman and named Extr in the will of Eilzabeth Inch, brothers William & Richard Sheel.3 
Death*before 18 May 1715He died before 18 May 1715 at Northampton Co, VA. It was on this date that administration on the estate of John Dewman was granted to Margert Dewman, widow of the dec'd. Appraisers were Argoll Wilkins, Watkins Wilkins, Robert Warren and Nathaniel Capell.4

Judging from descriptions in later transactions for this land it appears to have comprised the 300 acres of the Rodolphus patent and 40 aces more, either found within the bounds or taken from an adjacent tract. There was no local deed to Turner for any part of it, so that he may have acquired part or all by marriage or General Court deeds.2

Birth*circa 1700John Eshon was born circa 1700 at Northampton Co, VA.1 
Anecdote*18 June 1718 On 18 June 1718 in N'hamp Court the will of Daniell Eshon was presented by his widow and Extr Jean Eshon and the heir-at-law John Eshon who made objection to the proving of that part of his father's will in which he gave away the land from me which did not belong to him to give away to another but him which land was given to him the said John Eshon by his grandfather.2 
Will - Father's*10 August 1718John was named in his father's will on 10 August 1718 at Northampton Co, VA. He was shown as son John in the will of Daniel Eshon, wife Jane. He was given the 200 acre plantation (tract N122) whereon I now dwell after my wife's decease. He was to also pay 600#t owed to John White and to be at age when he has finished the crop.3 
Marriagecirca 1722He married Elizabeth (-----) circa 1722.1 
Land sold*1725John Eshon sold land in 1725 at tract N122, west of Exmore, N'hamp Co, VA. It was in this year that John Eshon and his wife Elizabeth Eshon sold 100 acres on Green's Branch to Thomas Joynes Jr., but 3 years later he sold it back to John Isham. At the same time as the sale to Joynes, the Eshons sold the other 100 acres to John Addison, but no further record was found of his ownership here, or concerning the 100 acres which had been bought back from Joynes. But in 1754 Edward Turner (wife Sarah) left to his son John a 340-acre plantation which he said he had formerly belonged to John Eshon. Judging from descriptions in later transactions for this land it appears to have comprised the 300 acres of the Rodolphus patent and 40 aces more, either found within the bounds or taken from an adjacent tract. There was no local deed to Turner for any part of it, so that he may have acquired part or all by marriage or General Court deeds.1 
Marriage*circa 1726He married Sarah (of Edwd I) Turner, daughter of Edward Turner I and Judith 'Judy' Hack, circa 1726 at Northampton Co, VA. The assumption for this marriage is based on the fact that Edward Turner, wife Sarah, who died in 1754 and left 340 aces of formerly John Eshon's land to his son John, probably inherited that land from his sister Sarah who was John Eshon's second wife and she came by it as his widow.1,4 
Anecdote*October 1735 In Oct 1735 in N'hamp Court Arthur Mackallan submits his account vs. John Eshon for £3.19.3. It shows a variety of household items: yeard goods, utensils, milk pans, dish, 2 stone cups, stockings and a hat, corn salt; moneys paid for the individuals for the said Eshon and several entries for indigo. Case dismissed.5 
AnecdoteSeptember 1736 In Oct 1736 in N'hamp Court Solomon Eshon sues John Eshon for 1 mare sold to the said John in 1735 for 600 pence; 100 pence paid. The said John refuses to pay the balance due. Case agreed and dismissed.6
