      Elizabeth (Sturman) Hardich died, and before May 16, 1659, Captn. William Hardich, Sr., md. Margaret Pope, dau. of Capt. Nathaniel Pope, and sister to Anne Pope, who md. Col. John Washington. The statement has been made that after the death of her husband in 1668, she married Daniel Higdon. In fact, she did not marry at all, although she became engaged to Thomas Patten, who made a voyage to England rather unexpectedly. On May 8, 1669, he wrote her a long letter. He calls her his "deare Pegg." Evidently, there had been a misunderstanding, but he assures her of his affection. "I have sent thee my horse as a token of my love as also a toaken by Lewis fayle not to come for England if thy Brother Thomas come home & write to me by all Conveniences I am thy Reall ffriend in all thy tribulacons & Joyes

      Thomas Patten 8th of May 1669
      My kind love to thy two Brothers Coll Washington & his Lady, Mr Lysson & my good Landlady Mary Bridges with the Rest of all or good Friends wishing them all happiness & am theirs to serve T. P. 31st of May 1671 this Letter was Recd.

      Unfortunately, his "Deare Pegg" died before his return, and before the letter was received. An inventory of her estate was taken by her brother. Thomas Pope, in 1669 (Wm. & Mary Quarterly, Vol. 4. pp 37, 81.) There were no children by the marriage of Capt. William Hardidge and Margaret Pope.
