That the marriage had occurred much earlier in that year than the date of the lease, January 16, 1669/70, is scarcely less certain, for on the preceding twenty-sixth of August, 1669, a young, unmarried man, Clement Spilman,(*) perhaps a suitor for the hand of the widow Anne Brodhurst-Brett,(+) and regretful at her marrying the man from Appomattox, sought to assuage his disappointment by uttering a libel, for which act John Washington promptly caused his arrest, with the following result:

[Westmoreland County, Deeds, Patents, Accounts,

Depositions, &c., from 1665 to

1677, p. 45 d.]: CLEMENT SPILMAN ASKING FORGIVENESS TO COLL JOHN WASHINGTON & HIS WIFE.

Whereas I Clement Spillman of ye County of Westmrland not having ye feare of god before my eis, did out of a Malicious principle & Daingerouse Consequences, Endeavour to take away & defame ye good Name & fame of Ltt. Coll. John Washington & Anne his wife by two Daingerouse Libels, one Dropt in Mr John Quigley's pasture, ye other In ye face of ye Court, for wh said Libells, I feirst Aske forgivenesse of god & next of Ltt. Coll John Washington & Anne his wife for this my grevious Errors, which I have been Led into. And further I doe oblidge my selfe to pay all Charges of Court yt hath Accrud by Reason of ye same, this I doe Acknowledge In ye Prsence of Major William Peirce & Capt John Lord. In testimonie of wh I have here unto set my hand this 26th of August 1669.

CLEMENT SPILLMAN'S hand Testes, WILLIAM PEIRCE, JOHN LORD.

(*) Died unmarried; will proved in Westmoreland, January 10, 1677/8.

(+) She is not recorded in Virginia under her maiden name, but she is surmised to have been one of the five unnamed daughters referred to in the will of the noted Virginian physician, Dr. Thomas Gerrard of Lower Machotick, near Nominy, Westmoreland, proved November 19, 1673, in which he bequeaths a very large estate. Anne Brodhurst named her son Gerrard Brodhurst, as also did Frances Gerrard, known daughter of Dr. Thomas Gerrard, name her son (by her second husband Colonel Valentine Payton) Gerrard Payton. After Anne Brodhurst-Brett-Washington's death, in 1675, it was this same Frances (Gerrard) Speke-Payton-Appleton, whom John Washington married as his last wife. Thus he was stepfather to both Gerrard Brodhurst and Gerrard Payton, whose respective mothers were, probably enough, half-sisters. This Frances, in 1665, had chosen John Washington her attorney to settle the estate of her deceased husband, Colonel Payton. Dr. Thomas Gerrard had children by two wives, and if Anne was one of them, she was half-sister to Frances Gerrard.

Westmoreland County. THE DEPOSITION of THOMAS LEE being sworn sayeth that
WILLIAM CHANDLER of the said County came to this Deponent to make his Will desireing this Deponent that it might be a secret for he said he was afraid of his Wife, and did not care to live with her, and he told this Deponent many things of his said Wife which were the reasons why he thought what the Law allowed her was enough and this Deponent minuted down the said CHANDLERs instructions which he after reduced into form and read it to the said CHANDLER which he approved of, signed and sealed and
delivered it to this Deponent as his, the said CHANDLERs Last Will and Testament witnessed the same & took charge of it by the said CHANDLERS desire and some time about the middle of January last past, the said CHANDLER came to this Deponents House and then expressed himself satisfyed and desired that the said Will shou'd be his Last Will, only that he desired this Deponent to write it if he had time, and expressed his intentions (this entry is very faded); And this Deponent doth believe he mentioned then to him that he had sold the Servt. he gave to ELIZABETH COOPER that he desired her the use of the Negroe, Dick, during her life for her support but of this he is not absolutely sure but he very well remembers that in October last when this Deponent was very ill at his own house and he the said CHANLOR at Capt. HENRY LEE's that Capt LEE brought him a message that the said CHANLOR desired that alteration relating to ELIZABETH COOPER might be made but this Deponent was not able to goe to the said CHANLOR. The Will of the said CHANLOR to the sence and to the effect as follows. After the common form in relation to his Soul, he ordered his just debts to be paid. He gave his Wife what the Law gave her and in the manner the Law gave it her, the Negroes to return at her death to CHANLOR AWBREY. He gave his former Wife's Sister, ELIZABETH COOPER, for to relieve her from want the use of a white Servant. He gave Capt. HENRY LEE a horse, He gave to CHANLOR AWBREY his Godson and Grandson in Law all the rest of his Estate of what nature or kind soever on condition that he shou'd choose this Deponet for his Guardian, but if he refused and did not doe it (ink stain) before he was 21 or without issue, (on a new page the remainder of the entry is quite readable); then he gave the same Estate to SUSANH: APPLEYORD. He appointed Capt. HENRY LEE his Executor and this Deponent does verily beleive that this near the words he took from the mouth of the said CHANLOR, And this Deponent further says that he put the said Will in his Escrutoir with his own hand and that on the 29th night of January last the said CHANLORs Will was burnt and that he never told any person liveing that it was burnt until! after the said CHANLORs death; And he does veryly beleive that had the said CHANLOR known that the said Will was burnt, that he would have had it made anew, but this Deponent beleives the said CHANLOR had such a relyance on the care of this Deponent that he might beleive if his Will had been burnt that this Deponent would have told him of it, which this Deponent did desire to doe soe soon as he had an opportunity to speak to him but that he had no sort of conversation as he remembers with the said CHANLOR from the time the Will was burnt nor did he ever see him but once at Church after the misfortune happened

Hammock, setting forth that hee became security to the Worshippfull Court of Northumberland with Margrett Macey, relict of Henry Macey late of the County of Northumberland, for Margret's due administration of her husband's estate, that some short tyme after Margrett intermarried with Wm. Hamock who removed Macey's estate into Richmond, which by appraisement was found to amount to 9390 pounds of tobacco, and afterwards died leaveing his son Richd. Hamock his executor, who inventoryed Macey's estate with his father's without distribution, that Cralle upon two of Macey's daughters comeing to age and applying themselves to him for such part of thier father's estate as of right belonged to them, hee to avoid trouble at law paid the two daughters, Ruth and Mary, their respective fifth parts of macey's estate, which being divided into five equall parts betwixt his four children and their mother amounted to 1878 pounds of tobacco each, well hopeing Wm. Hammock would honestly refund and reimbusrst the same to him againe. But hammock departing this life, no part of the tobacco beinge repaid Cralle, and Macey's estate being removed from county to county, so that Cralle could not come at his debt or the knowledge where Macey's estate was lodged by the strict rules of the common law, therefore prayed her Majestie's writt to cause Richd. Hammock to discover to this Court what hee knew of Macy's estate and whether the same or any part came to the hands of Wm. Hamock and if it appeared there was sufficient to pay the orator's disbursements orany part thereof, prayed a decree of the same. Richd. Hamock neglecting to appeare or put in any answer to the orator's bill, the same was continued til next Court, and now Hammock appeareing but refuseing to make any answer and Cralle produceing severall receipts amounting to 2534 pounds of tobacco, it is decreed that Richard Hamock doe pay to John Cralle 2534 pounds of tobacco out of Wm. Hamock's estate.not proven to these parents, but probably died before 1690 and not shown in will

70841 Westmoreland County, Virginia, Order Book, 1698-1705, p. 192a. 27 May 1703: John Cralle of the County of Northumberland, Gent., by his bill in chancery exhibited against Richard Hammock, executor of Wm. Hammock, setting forth that hee became security to the Worshippfull Court of Northumberland with Margrett Macey, relict of Henry Macey late of the County of Northumberland, for Margret's due administration of her husband's estate, that some short tyme after Margrett intermarried with Wm. Hamock who removed Macey's estate into Richmond, which by appraisement was found to amount to 9390 pounds of tobacco, and afterwards died leaveing his son Richd. Hamock his executor, who inventoryed Macey's estate with his father's without distribution, that Cralle upon twoo of Macey's daughters comeing to age and applying themselves to him for such part of thier father's estate as of right belonged to them, hee to avoid trouble at law paid the two daughters, Ruth and Mary, their respective fifth parts of macey's estate, which being divided into five equall parts betwixt his four children and their mother amounted to 1878 pounds of tobacco each, well hopeing Wm. Hammock would honestly refund and reimbusrst the same to him againe. But hammock departing this life, no part of the tobacco beinge repaid Cralle, and Macey's estate being removed from county to county, so that Cralle could not come at his debt or the knowledge where Macey's estate was lodged by the strict rules of the common law, therefore prayed her Majestie's writt to cause Richd. Hammock to discover to this Court what hee knew of Macy's estate and whether the same or any part came to the hands of Wm. Hamock and if it appeared there was sufficient to pay the orator's disbursements orany part thereof, prayed a decree of the same. Richd. Hamock neglecting to appeare or put in any answer to the orator's bill, the same was continued til next Court, and now Hammock appeareing but refuseing to make any answer and Cralle produceing severall receipts amounting to 2534 pounds of tobacco, it is decreed that Richard Hamock doe pay to John Cralle 2534 pounds of tobacco out of Wm. Hamock's estate.
