      EDMONDS, Anne (d.t., 1745). COB#2, p. 463: 1 November 1745 = The will of Anne Edmonds was proven in the usual manner and her executor, George Davenport, gave bond in the sum of 1,000 Sterling for his proper executorship on her estate and Charles Deane and Thomas Pratt joined him on the said bond as his securities. [BB #3, p. 46]. An inventory of her estate was recorded 7 February 1745/6 in I#2, p. 14. Anne (Birkett) Edmonds was the widow of Cornelius Edmonds, next below. See: G.H.S.King, Marriages of Richmond County, Virginia 1668-1853, p. 62.
      EDMONDS, CORNELIUS (d.t., 1722). COB#l, p. 72: 7 December 1722 =
      The will of Cornelius Edmonds, deceased, was submitted for probate by his widow, Anne Edmonds, who entered into bond for the same with John Pratt, her security. His inventory was recorded in I#1, p. 21-23, and it is oftentimes interesting to note the names of the indentured white servants, the remaining time they had to serve and the value placed thereon. We note in his inventory Cornelius Edmonds had as servants Agnes Boughan (maid), Alexander Casson (a man) and David Carney (a boy).
