in 1705, the will of William Wentworth Matheny left to a William Mason, "the son of my wife Frances," 100 acres in the Aquia area. It may be the 100 acres described in the following deed between Thomas Norman and William Matheny, witnessed by John Mason, and later purchased by William Wentworth Matheny

--p. 85. pp. 236-37 in original:
Thomas Norman of Stafford County Carpenter...by an especial deed of conveyance formerly given & granted (to wit) about 5 years since to my Eldest son Henry Norman a parcel of land, 100 acres, lying in the county afsd. on the south side Aquia Creek adjoining on the westward end of Wm. Matheny' s land...the said 100 acres of land is returned to Thomas Norman by his son Henry Norman by deed of conveyance...I give to my son Henry Norman another parcel of 100 acres in Stafford on main run of Acokeek Creek adj. parcel of 143 acre s formerly granted to John Adams, to head line of that land 1,150 acres granted to me by Proprietors office...Dated 1 3 Sept. 1704.
Wit: John Mason, William Perkins, Thomas Gregg.
Recorded: 16 Sept., 1704.

The following deeds indicate a close relationship between a William Mason and the Matheny family. Daniel Matheny was the oldest son of Wm. Wentworth Matheny, who was a William Mason's stepfather and left him 100 acres in his 1705 will: "I give and bequeath unto WILLIAM MASON my wife's son all that one hundred acres of land which I now live on to him and the heirs of his body and their heirs forever and in case he die without such heirs then the said land to come to my 2nd son John Matheny and the heirs of his body and their heirs forever and in case he die without such heirs then the said land to come to my 3rd son James Matheny an d his heirs..."

The Quit Rent Rolls in Stafford Co. VA, 1742, include a WILLIAM MASON on 100 acres.

Although George Harrison King, in his Overwharton Parish records, stated that most of the Masons in those records seemed to be descendants of George of Aquia, that is probably not true. After George II of Aquia's death in 1729/30, his widow, Anne Apple married William Butler and they, along with her children by George Mason, moved to the Cedar Run-Occoquan area in Prince William County and later to Loudoun County.

The Masons remaining in Stafford Co. by the 1730s seem to be clustered in the Aquia area, descendants of perhaps the Richard who married Frances, through their son William. While Richard has not been substantiated, it is certain that a William Mason born ca. 1690 was the son of Frances Mason Matheny, and that this William owned 100 acres south of A quia Creek and adjacent to the Matheny lands.

Charles County Land Records 1792-1796; Liber N#4; Page 524. Notice and Deposition.
On Nov 24 ensuing, I shall take the deposition of Mr. Thomas Waters, respecting the legacy devised to me by Mrs. Ann Sanders. Signed Oct 30, 1795 - Dorothy Brooke. Messrs Jno Brooke & Wm Gardiner, Exr5 of A. Sanders.
CC, Oct 30, 1795. Then came John Bapt. Thompson before me, and made oath that the above is a true copy of the original information delivered to John Brooke & William Gardiner, Executors of Ann Sanders. Signed - Alexr McPherson*.
CC. By an act of Assembly, passed in 1779, establishing a mode to perpetuate testimony that the deposition of any person in danger of death by sickness may be taken by any judge of the General Court, a Magistrate of the County where the evidence may reside, and the same read in evidence in any Court of law or equity, it appears to the complainant, Dorothy Brooke, legatee of Ann Sanders, that the testimony of Thomas Waters is materially necessary to support her claim under the will of sd Ann Sanders, It further appears to sd complainant that the life of ad Waters is imminently in danger from a long and lingering illness. On Nov 24, 1795, the deposition of Thomas Waters in the presence of John Brooke, one of the executors of Ann Sanders, was taken, and is as follows. Thomas Waters, aged 51 or 52, says that some time in the month of Aug, 1792, Mr. William Gardiner came to him, requesting that he would undertake the sale of a Negro woman he then had in his possession named Fanny, at the same time telling him, he (Gardiner) was then on his way to Mr. Sanders' to get consent for the sale, that his reason for selling the woman was an attempt to poison a Negro man of his family, that sd Waters saw Gardiner the next day in Port Tobacco and was by him told that Mrs. Sanders consented to the sale, that in consequence thereof, he went, upon the evening, and took the Negro in his possession, that he stayed that night at Mr. Gardiner's, who being from home, his wife undertook to desire he (Waters) would take with [him] for sale, the youngest child of sd Negro woman, assuring him it would be perfectly agreeable to Mr. Gardiner, that he did so, and at coming away, desired if Mr. Gardiner returned before 10 °Clock, that he would ride down to his house, that Mr. Gardner came down and expressed himself contented with what his wife had done, and desired him to take the child along with the wench, who were both together with him. In a few days after selling them, he carried the money to Mr. Gardiner, who told him that Mrs. Sanders was very angry with him (Waters) and threatened suing him for selling the wench. He replied to Gardiner, you must stand all damages, which he consented to do, at the same time saying that Mrs. Sanders half the money, that afterwards she requested but 10 £, which he refused to let her have, saying she was so much offended with him, it was all he ever expected to get from her. He paid Gardner 75 £, on which he received a commission of 10%. About 2 months ago, Mr. and Mrs. Gardiner came to this deponent's house, and acknowledged that the Negroes in dispute were the children in dispute of the woman he had sold, and at the same time, they said Mrs. Sanders gave the wench and children to them, that they could prove the gift by Henry Gardiner, his wife, & Caty Simpson. This deponent says that in the same year, after selling the Negroes, he saw Mrs. Sanders, who appeared to be extremely angry with him for selling them, and declared she had never given them to Mr. Gardiner, nor liberty to sell them, that he informed Mrs. Sanders that Gardiner told this deponent that he had her consent for selling the Negroes, which also she denied. Signed - Thos Waters. Wit - Alexr McPherson*. Recorded Feb 3, 1796.
