Land inherited*Mary Benston inherited land at tract A166, New Church, Accomack Co, VA. Young Ambrose died without issue at some unknown date and the land he inherited from his father Ambrose Benston went to his three sisters, Elizabeth who married a Hill, Tabitha who married Massey Benston and Mary who married William Melvin. There was no disposition found by either Mary or a William Melvin; some time later a Samuel Melvin appeared in the records in this vicinity, but no disposition by him was found. The land seems to have continued in the family, as in 1787 a Smith Melvin (wife Mary) left his home plantation to a son James, who owned it until well into the next century, and the land is believed to have continued in the family for some time longer.2
