      I believe Paxton got it wrong in his 1885 publication on the Marshall family and mixed up the Isle of Wright Marshall's with the Westmoreland Marshall's. It appears the 1635 transportation of 20 year old John Marshall to VA was the one who married Jane McCarthy. From naming conventions, no William or Thomas figures into the Isle of Wight Family.

      There is another line of Marshall's that was in Lancaster Co. VA on the Rappanhannock River near Leedstown that would have been a better match for the 1655 Thomas Marshall. However, they are all accounted for with land records and wills/inventories. This family appears to be the ancestors of the King George County, Virginia and "Berry Plains", and were early overseers for the Carter family. I'm currently focusing on the John Marshall that died in Lancaster county and had orphans.

      The Thomas Marshall millwright, living in "Allens Fresh", Charles County Maryland that moved to Virginia abt 1684 to avoid prosecution by the St. Mary's MD courts after Fendall's Rebellion, is the Thomas was living in Northumberland and after 1695 per the "1695 Col. Nehemiah Blackiston inventory, where Thomas is referred to as "of Virginia". This Thomas appears to have died in Stafford county.

      The Families of Brown, Rozier, Chandler, Harrison, & Pope all had property on both sides of the Potomac directly across from "Allens Fresh" at Pope's Creek in Westmoreland Co. Va, and the Marshall's married into most of them. Coincidently, Thomas' move to Virginia was the same time Martha Sherwood of Westmoreland Co. Va. married a Thomas Marshall and her sister Sarah married a David Rozier, a nephew of Col. Benjamin Rosier.

      Thomas Marshall b 1655 would have been one of the first sons of William Marshall & Catherine Payne widow of Thomas Dr. Hebden who died 1649, or from an earlier marriage to Margaret Bayne who died about 1650. However DNA testing show no relationship between the MD and VA lines.

      He was a farmer & carpenter P. 701 of "VA Vital Records"...Ancestor of John Marshall, the first Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court

      11 (a) THOMAS MARSHALL, son of Captain John Marshall (10), emigrant, was born in eastern Virginia about 1655, d. May --, 1704, in Washington parish, Westmoreland County, Virginia. He was a small farmer and a zealous Episcopalian. His will is of record in Westmoreland County, and I subjoin a copy:

      In the name of God, Amen! I, Thomas Marshall, of the County of Westmoreland, of Washington parish, carpenter, being very weak, but of perfect memory, thanks be to God for it, doth ordain this my last will and testament, in the manner and form following:

      (b) First: I give and bequeath my soul into the hands of my Blessed Creator and Redeemer, hoping, through merits of my Blessed Savior, to receive full pardon and remission of all my sins; and my body to the earth, to be decently buried according to the direction of my executor, which hereafter shall be named.

      (c) Item: I will and ordain that my well beloved wife, Martha Marshall, shall be my full and whole executrix.

      (d) Item: I will that my estate shall remain in the hands of my wife as long as she remains single; but in case she marries, then, she is to have her lawful share, and the rest to be taken out of her hands, equally to be divided among my children.

      (e) Item: I will that if my wife marry, that David Brown, Sr., and John Brown be guardians over my children, and to take the estate into their hands, bringing it to appraisement, giving good security to what it is valued, and to pay my children their dues as they become of age.

      (f) Item: I will that Elizabeth Rosser is to have a heifer, delivered by my wife, called "Whitebelly," to be delivered as soon as I am deceased.

      (g) Item: I will that my son William Marshall have my plantation, as soon as he comes of age, to him and his heirs forever, but in case my son William die before he comes of age, or die without issue, then my plantation is to fall to the next heir apparent at law. (No date.)

      THOMAS MARSHALL. [ SEAL. ]
      Witnesses: EDW'D TAYLOR, JOHN OXFORD
      Probated May 31, 1704. and JOHN TAYLOR.


      (h) The maiden name of Mrs. Martha Marshall is unknown, and William and John are the only children we can trace. John married Elizabeth Markham, and, with them, I begin my chart. William was the father of the celebrated Col. William Marshall of Mecklenburg, who served in the Revolutionary war, and was one of the patriots who, in 1775, promulgated the Declaration of Independence, which served as a model for the Continental Manifesto. The posterity of Col. William Marshall has already been referred to (10) and it may be useful to trace one branch of his posterity.

      Anne (Washington) Wright had died before the date of this will, March 11, 1697/8, hence no bequest to her, and hence the reference of the testator to being buried "by the side of my Father and Mother & near my Brothers and Sisters," in the family burying ground on the original Washington estate near Bridges' Creek in Washington Parish, Westmoreland, two-thirds of a mile from the spot where now stands the tall granite shaft erected by an act of Congress. The death of Anne (Washington) Wright, when aged under thirty-eight, is also established by the deed of sale, executed by her only son John Wright and his father, of land she had inherited from her father Colonel John Washington viz.:
