Land sold*1729He sold land in 1729 at tract A3, Belle Haven, Accomack Co, VA. Whitelaw shows John Watson sold as 135 acres of this tract to his brother Benjamin. (NOTE: Evidently Whitelaw overlooked the 1708 will of John Watson, wife Elizabeth, who left his son Peter Watson the house & 1/2 the land given me by the will of my father Robert Watson and to his son John Watson (under 18) the other 1/2 of the land. Evidenlty the eldest son Peter died and his half went to his brother John who sold it all to his Uncle Benjamin Watson.) In 1738 Benjamin (wife Joice) left half of the land to a son Arthur; no record of any disposition of the balance was noted and Arthur left no will, but presumably he was succeeded by a son Zerobabel, who apparently owned all the land left by his grandfather. In 1775 Zerobabel (wife Keziah) left his home plantation to his son Arthur, Keziah Watson married Southy Northam and in 1792 they united with Arthur Watson in a deed to John Addison for 125 acres.2

Listed with him was 1M0-10, 1F0-10 & 2F16-26. He and Edward Martin, age 26-45, were the only two Martins in Accomack Parish and he is therefore assumed to be the son of this Edward.

Birth*circa 1706John (of James of Wm I) Twiford was born circa 1706 at Northampton Co, VA.1 
Will - Father's*20 June 1718John was named in his father's will on 20 June 1718 at Northampton Co, VA. In his will James Twiford, wife Joan, named son John (under 18), son Hillary (under 18), daughter Elizabeth (under 16).1 
Land inherited*1721He inherited land in 1721 at tract N123, west of Exmore, Northampton Co, VA. It was in this year that James Twiford, wife Joan, left to his son John and two years later the latter's uncle Bartholomew confirmed to him his half of the undivided land.2 
Marriage*circa 1727He married Director (of Jms & Ellinor) Smith (widow Twiford), daughter of James (of John, tailor) Smith and Ellinor (-----), circa 1727 at Northampton Co, VA. No mention of a Dirctor Twiford was found in N'hamp or Accomack County records before her marriage to Moses Watson 1 Jan 1730/31. It therefore seems likely that she was the young widow of John Twiford, who Whitelaw shows died intestate after giving a bond to sell his part of tract A123 to Jacob Dewey in 1730 and was succeeded by a son James Twiford who exchanged this land with Richard and Tabitha Johnson in 1750. The assumption at this point (lacking further proof or dis-proof) is that she was Director Smith, the daughter of James & Ellinor Smith. This is based on the simple fact that Director is a very unusual named and there are almost no other choices based on the records available to date and she is the right age and in the general geographic area.2 
Land sold*1730John (of James of Wm I) Twiford sold land in 1730 at tract N123, west of Exmore, Northampton Co, VA. It was in this year that John Twiford gave a bond to sell his part of this tract to Jacob Dewey, but the deed never was executed, and upon the intestate death of John he was succeeded by a son James. In 1750 this James Twiford exchanged this part with the Johnsons for the eastern part, and for some years this western part remained merged with the land of N120A.2 
Death*after 1730He died after 1730 at Northampton Co, VA.2
