      Henry Ware and Markham Ware

      King George County, where Henry died about 1750, was formed from Richmond Co. in 1720. Henry's will makes specific reference to the land in Goochland County, which he devised to his son, Markham. His will said he had other children besides Markham but he did not name them. It was dated October 17, 1750, and witnessed by Elizabeth Markham, William Marshall, and Benjamin Marshall. His friend, Major Harry Turner, and brother John Ware were named as executors.

      1750 - Henry Ware of Hanover Parish, King George Co. bought land on Tuckahoe Creek, Goochland County, about 170 acres.

      1741 - 17 Nov - James Wade of St. James Parish, Goochland Co. sold to Giles Letcher of Henrico Parish land on the north side of the James River bounded by Hazel Branch and Henry Ward (Ware). (Goochland Co. Deed Book 3, Page 104) Note: When James Wade sold the remainder of his land in Goochland to Strangeman Hutchins of Goochland, it was described as being in the folk of Tuckahoe Creek adj. Leonard Henly, Jr., John Barnet, Jr, Giles Letcher and Henry Ware. (Goochland Co. Deed Book 6, Page 60)

      1741 - 16 Mar - Will of Peter Ware of Henrico County, (son of Valentine Ware) was probated in Goochland County, Virginia 18 Feb 1744. He leaves 214+ acres in Tuckahoe Creek, Goochland Co. to brother Henry Ware, "left to me by my father". There are two land patents by Valentine Ware totaling 429 acres in Tuckahoe Creek, one for 262 acres and one for 167 acres. (Virginia State Library Archives)

      -Henry Ware, (c1708-7 Oct 1750/7 Dec 1750 King George County, Virginia) m. (Jane Markham ?). This may be the Henry that owned a grist mill in St. Mary’s Parish, Caroline Co. VA before 1732. Henry’s brother John was Executor for Henry’s will. Maj. Harry (aka Henry) Turner, who along with John Ware, was appointed Executor of Henry’s will refused to serve as Executor; he died a short time later. Witnesses to Henry’s will were Elizabeth Markham (widow of John Marshall) [mm note - this would be Elizabeth wife of Edward Marshall] and her two sons, Benjamin and William Marshall, of Westmoreland County, Virginia. John Ware, the Executor of Henry’s will return an inventory of his estate on 5 Sep 1751. Henry’s wife may have been the sister of Elizabeth Markham, one of the witnesses to Henry’s will.
