Marriage*circa 1743She married William Fitzgerald, son of John Fitzgerald II and Ann Booth, circa 1743.1 
Married Namecirca 1743 As of circa 1743,her married name was Fitzgerald. 
Anecdote*September 1745 In September 1745, William Fitzgerrald and his new wife Amberlain were sleeping together, but not in the bed they had been promised. Before the marriage, William's father, John Fitzgerrald, was trying to ensure a comfortable future for William and Amberlain, but he did not want to do it alone. He therefore took his son's fiance with him to see Jonathan Chambers, a relative of hers-she was "the Child of his Wife's sister's Bastard." John told Chambers that he would give his son a piece of land if he married Amberlain, and he expected that Chambers would give them something, too, since she was a relative. Chambers, who had been drinking, replied that he had always intended to give Amberlain a feather bed and furniture if she married a man he approved of, and he did approve of William; as soon as they were married, he would deliver the items. After the marriage, however, the young couple never received the bed. The jury trying the case found that the promised gift would have been worth £5:00:00, but they were not sure that the promise made by Chambers was binding. The justices, who were to make the final ruling, did not do so till November 1747; they then ordered Chambers to pay William and Amberlain the value of the wedding gift he never gave.1

The rest of Leah’s children were to be equally divided between Nock’s children Nehemiah, Solomon, George and Sarah.

Anecdote*26 July 1757 On 26 Jul 1757 in Accomack Court Robert Chambers with wife Sarah (attorney: Littleton Dennis) sued Elijah Nock (attorney: George Douglas). William Nock (Sarah’s father) had owned a Negro slave named Leah. In his will (dated 25 February 1737) Nock gave the use of Leah to his son George; Leah’s first child (at the age of two) was to be delivered to Sarah. The rest of Leah’s children were to be equally divided between Nock’s children Nehemiah, Solomon, George and Sarah. William Nock’s will gave the following: to son Elijah–250 acres home plantation, ½ interest in 200 acres marsh, a cow, a ewe, the use of Negro girl Matha; to son William–right to live on home plantation if destitute, a cow, a ewe; son John–150 acres to then go to his son Joseph, ½ interest in 200 acres marsh; son Nehemiah–a cow, a ewe, share of Leah’s increase; son Solomon–a cow, a ewe, share of Leah’s increase; son George–a cow, a ewe, use of Negro wench Leah, share of Leah’s increase; daughter Sarah–Leah’s 1 child st at age two, share of Leah’s increase; wife Elizabeth–use of the home plantation and 200 acres of marsh on the Bay Side, yoke of oxen, 10 cattle, the care of Elijah and Sarah, all the cider, brandy, hogs, meat, corn, wheat; grandson Joseph Nock (s/o John & wife Martha)–Matha’s 1st child at age two; grandson William Ratclif (s/o Charles & wife Waddelo)–Matha’s 2nd child at age two. Witnesses were John Nock, John Tankred and Stephen (x) Warrington. The jury noted that –The will was proved 2 May 1738. –Executors William and John took possession of Leah. –George, in his will (8 January 1743), gave Leah to his brother Elijah. (He also gave: to Elijah–6 pewter plates, 2 dishes, bridle, saddle, leather britches, coat, check shirt, best hoe, bed and bedding; to William–10 bushels corn, coat; to John–blue jacket, red cloth to cover wife’s saddle, logwood axe; to Solomon–finest hat; to Nehemiah–6 bushels corn; to cousin Joseph Nock–2 pigs; to sister Sarah–check linen for an apron, silk handkerchief, fine shift and muslin for a cap. (End p. 201) The rest of the estate was to be divided between his brothers and two sisters. Executors were John and William; witnesses were Richard Justice, Thomas Webb and Elias Truit. William inventoried George’s estate (appraised by Ralph Justice, Robert Abbott and Richard Justice–submitted 25 September 1744). Among other things it included Leah, about 18 or 19 years old (£30:00:00). The jury found that– In August 1743, Leah gave birth to Esther; – Plaintiffs Robert and Sarah were married before George died; – Robert demanded Esther (after she reached two years of age) from William (exr of William and George), but he refused saying she belonged to brother Elijah (now the defendant); –Sarah reached the age of 21 ten years before bringing her 1751 suit, which was dropped; –At that time Esther was 10 years 10 months old; – In 1754 the present suit commenced. If the law favored the plaintiffs, the jury would find that the defendant detained the slave (worth £30) and would award damages of 6 pence. The court’s judgment would be given 30 August. Witnesses for Nock: Rachel Webb (3 days) and Margaret Stockley (2 days).2
