  • Notes 
    • "May 28, 1685 Honor ATWILL proved the will of William Hunt as his extrx., by the oaths of John Tanner and John Pye. Thomas ATWILL and John Howell became her securities (P. 409) [of orig. records.]

      Thomas Pope and Susan his wife proved the nunc. will of Thomas Watkins by the oaths of Thomas ATWELL and Honor his wife and were granted l. a. (p. 410) {orig. record] pg 422

      Westmoreland County, Virginia Order Book, Pt. 3, 1694-1698,pg. 69 in reprinted book, page 199 in original, [25 March 1696]: "John Pie attorney of Wm. Reyner confessed judgment to Honora ATWELL executrix of Thomas ATWELL for 608 pounds of tobacco due by account for work done by Thomas in his life tyme for Wm."

      Westmoreland County, Virginia Order Book 1690-1698, Pt 1, 1690-1 to 1692, abstracted and compiled by John Frederick Dorman, pg 13 [original will book page 74A]: 28 Sept. 1692 "The last will and testament of Thomas ATWELL was proved by Thomas TANNER and John PYE and a probate granted Honor ATWELL, relict of the decedent, and Thomas TANNER and John PYE assume to indempnifie the Court."

      Thomas Atwell's wife was named Honor or Honora. On May 27, 1685 Honor Atwell proved the will of William Hunt by the oaths of John Tanner and John Pye, and on the same date John Pye and Susan his wife proved the will of Thomas Watkins by the oaths of Thomas Atwell and Honor his wife (O. B. 1, pp. 409-10). Thomas Atwell died in 1692, probate being granted to Honor, his relict Sept. 28, 1692, Honora Atwell last appears in the records Mar. 25, 1696. There is some probability that Thomas Atwell's wife Honora was identical with Honora Sullivan mentioned above to whom Teage Olathman left land. If so, she was his third wife and not the mother of his children, for Honor Sullivan was still unmarried as late as April 26 1673

      Westmoreland Co. Order Book, 1690-1698, Pt. 3, 1694-1698 Page --- [1696/7]: "Abraham Griffin aged four yeares is by his mother bound apprentice to Thomas ATWELL and Anne his wife and Honora their daughter with them to serve untill hee attaine to the age of one and twenty yeares, the which Mary Griffin his mother did in open Court own and declare."
