      Notes for ANNE PAYNE:
      From the book " The Paynes of Virginia" by Colonel Brooke Payne

      Her father's will, written 31 Jany 1697/8, makes the following provisions: "to my eldest daughter Anne by a fromer venture all my land on the Eastern side of the plantation fence where I now live bounded from the upper end of the home orchard, as far as my field goes, and on the other side as far as Mr. Alexander Spence's Gutt (defined as a contracted strait connecting two bodies of water); she to be possessed of it at 16 or marriage; also two negroes--Garter, etc., all hogs now on land where Footman lived and all corn on same, my ed and furniture belonging to porch chanber, the glass which is in the hall, one oval table, a carpet, 6 Russia leather chairs, 6 cows, and 6 ewes. On my death she is to be possessed of all above together with the negro left her by Mr. Jadwin's will; also the produce of 5Lbs that I sent by Mr. Steel to be disposed of for my use at New Castle in Linner (not identified), and 2 hogsheads of tobacco, 800 lbs. each, out of the crop on my plantation. She is to pay my daughter Mary 10,000# when the latter is sixteen. Daughter Nannie and son William are joint executors of my will, but since they are under age, I appoint my loving friend Richard Lee of Lower Machotique guardian to my children. My daughter Anne Payne is to go immediately after my death to Colonel Lee's house." The land thus bequeathed to her contained 300 acres. Mr. Jeremiah Jadwin, who died 1697 and who was called son in the will of Cecelie Journeau in 1667, left a bequest to his god-daughter "Anne Paine daughter of William Paine of Yeocomico Neck."
