      URL title: OLD RAPPAHANNOCK COUNTY, VIRGINIA LAWSONS
      Notes on Immigrant Lawson's of Tidewater - A Search for Clues to the Illustration of Origins, by Caroline Kemper Bulkley; The Lawson's of Virginia (Virginia Magazine, Vol. IV, 1894.) - Elizabeth Lawson, Jr. was married to a man using the name of Davis; with him she signed at least one deed, which has been taken to mean she had two husbands. Robert Payne, her son, prosecuted and proved his claim as the heir of his grandfather Epaphroditus, against William Clapham, Jr., his grandmother's second husband. There were no "heirs named Davis"; Elizabeth Lawson Jr. was the wife only of Robert Payne and mother of Robert Payne, Jr. The elder Robert Payne was the Clerk of Rappahannock County and the first clerk of Essex County.

      The Davis deed was made 11 September, 1666 and for a good price, turns over land inherited from Epaphroditus Lawson, her father, to Thomas Medestard, the brother-in-law of her step-father, possibly her uncle. It is signed Davys by attorney Fleming, who has before appeared in the parental affairs. By the time stepfather Clapham has been dead about six years. This fact may or may not have relevance in the light of Robert Payne's petition to court for resumption of his own name "20th of 9 Bris. 1666."
      Any discussion as to the authenticity of the documents signed Davis or of the dual identity of the persons involved may be permanently settled by perusing the records of that court.

      On the 22 February 1667/68 this appears: Indenture between Robert Payne and Elizabeth his wife of Sittingbourne Parish County of Rappahannock, Virginia. It is from the Rappahannock Record Book of 1663-68. It is witnessed by William Underwood, W. Moseley and George Andrus. Elizabeth Payne came into Court and again acknowledged this contract 4 November 1674.

      The following is the full text of court action; quite evidently the justices were fully satisfied with the reasons laid before them, although they are not set forth: - "Upon the petition of Robert Payne showing civil reasons and cause to assume the name of Davis, which name he hath passed and been called for the space of about five years past, acted as a public officer in the court of Rappahannock County, married a wife acquired sevll lands goods debts and possessions in the country and desiring to undeceive the world by manifesting his true surname to be Payne, this Court is pleased and accordingly doth hereby make known and publish to all persons concerned that the right and true surname of the said person hitherto called Davis and of his wife and issue (when he shall have any) is and shall be from henceforth called, accepted and taken to be Payne as above said and doth further order that all official acts records Judgments, instruments and proceedings of that quality what soever made done entered copied or attested by the said Payne by or under the name of notion of Davies shall be esteemed accepted and held in as full and equal force value and authenticities and esteem as if he had acted therein by his right and true surname and that all lands, tenemts possessions, rights, privileges, heridataments, debts, goods, servants, profits and other estate of wt nature, equality kind or condition so ever legally acquired, grained, earned or possessed by the said Payne under the borrowed name of Davies as aforesaid are confirmed and established unto him the said Payne and his wife and his heirs....
