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.

Whereas a suit att Law was brought by Edward Barrow, of Richmond County, Gentn, against Gilbert Metcalfe, of the Same County, Gent., before the court of the said County, for Certaine Slaves Detained by the Said Metcalfe from the Said plt.; Whereupon a Jury brought in a Special Verdict upon the whole Facts of the case; but before the said Court gave any Judgment thereon the Said contending parties. Entered into a Rule of Court by theire Consent and request to Submit the Suite and all other Diferences, Claimes, & Demands of Either the Said parties to the Estate Mr. Richard Metcalfe Dyed possest of in this Collony, to my Examination & Settlement, and that Judgment and Execution Shoud go accordingly, bearing the Date the first Day of August, 1711; To determine this matter the best I coud, the Contending parties have bin before me. I have Considered the proceedings in this case, the Facts found by the Jury, the papers produced on both Sides, The Will of Gilbert the Grand Father, the Long Entercourse by Letters between Mrs. Metcalfe and this Richard, her Son, and, after his Death, to his Relict, Mrs. Barrow; also the Letters of the Said Richard's Brothers to him, and likewise Richard's long Possession, his claime to his Uncle, the alderman of York, his Estate.

Upon the whole, it is my opinion that Barrow recover the negroes Claimed in his Declaration, or as many of them as many of them as shall be alive on the Fifteenth Day of november next, and those negroes also that have bin seized by the Said Metcalfe since ye action brought, and also the Children that have bin borne of any of the Said negroes since Metcalfe hath had the possession of them as the proper Estate of the sd Richard; and my further opinion is, That the Said negroes and theire Increase, or as many of them as Shall be Liveing, be Delivered to the Said Barrow on the Said 15th of november next, and not before, and, if not then done, that Execution Issue; That in the mean time Gilbert have the Laboure and Government of the Said Slaves; that he findes them with provissions, and use them wth Humanitie; and that at the End of the time, the said Gilbert pay to the Said Barrow, for every one of the said Slaves, a new Cotton Suite, two Shifts, a paire [of] Shoes & Stockings, and three barrells of Corne; and also five pounds Sterling Damage, which Summof five pounds is to be in lieu of all Damages whatsoever the said Barrow may or might Claime or recover for Detention of said negroes, or for the Death of any of them, or for any other cause or thing relating to this Suit, Except the cost of Suit, which 'tis my opinion be born Equally between the contending parties.

Witness my hand and Seale this 2d day of June, 1712.

INSCRIPTIONS ON OLD TOMBSTONES IN WESTMORELAND AND NORTHUMBERLAND COUNTIES
(Copied from the tombstones by Rev. Dr. G. W. Beale, of Heathsville, Northumberland county,
with the exception of the inscription on the tomb of Mrs. Ann Lee, which is taken from Dr.
Lee's "Lee of Virginia," and of that on the tombstone of Izatis Anderson, near Cherry Point,
which was copied by Mr. I. Basye Marsh.)

At Nominy Church, on the creek of the same name, there was at the time of the destruction
of the building by the British in 1814, a tomb commemorative of the first wife of Hon.
Richard Henry Lee, the inscription on which, as found among Mr. Lee's papers, and published
by Dr. E. Jennings Lee, is as follows:

Sacred to the Memory
of Mrs. Ann Lee,* wife of R. H. Lee
This monument was erected by her
Afflicted husband in the year 1768.
Reflect, dear reader, on the great
Uncertainty of human life, since neither
esteem, temperament nor the most amiable
goodness could save this excellent lady from death.
In the bloom of life. She left behind her four children,
two sons and two daughters.
Obiit 12th December 1768, aet 30.
Was there so precious a flower
But given us to behold it waste,
The short-lived blossom of an hour
Too nice, too fair, too sweet to last.
_____________________________________________
*Mrs. Lee was the younger of the two daughters of Capt. William Aylett's second marriage
with Elizabeth Eskridge, daughter of Major George Eskridge of Sandy Point. Her sister
Mary married Mr. Lee's brother, Thomas Ludwell. Her half-sisters by her father's previous
marriage with Anne Ashton, were Elizabeth and Ann, who respectively married William Booth
and W. Augustine Washington. Mrs. Lee's mother, after Captain Aylett's death, about 1744,
married again, Col. James Steptoe, a widower with two daughters, Elizabeth and Ann, who
married Philip Ludwell Lee, and Willoughby Allerton, and after their deaths P. R. Fendall
and Samuel Washington. The four children referred to as surviving Mrs. Lee were Thomas,
who afterwards settled in Prince William county, Ludwell, who went to Loudoun; Hannah, who
married Corbin Washington, and Mary, who married William Augustine Washington. Mrs Lee
was buried in the old burial ground under the hills at Mount Pleasant. 
Aylett, Anne (I044660)
