      Note - Looking at the records of the brothers Justinian/Jesse Barron (1741-1811) and Thomas Barron in Charles Co., Md. and Prince William Co., Va., one's first guess would probably be that Hendley Barron was their nephew. But even if that it is so, it is not clear which of Justinian's and Thomas' brothers was Hendley's father. And the names of Hendley's sons does not help that analysis. Another possibility is that Hendley's mother was an unmarried sister of Justinian and Thomas.

      Issue of Hendley Barron and Margery Cox:
      1. Charles B./H. Barron.
      2. Henry A. Barron, M. Rebecca Ann Latimore.
      3. Katherine (Kattie/Kitty/Kittie) Barron, M. Hanson Gassaway.
      4. Charlotte A. Barron, M. Samuel Latimer.
      5. Cecilia J. Barron, M. George Washington.
      6. Emily M. Barron, M. Samuel P. M. Hanson.
      7. William Hendley Barron, M. Leeanah Mason and Elizabeth Dugans.
      8. Ann Cox Barron, M. Felix Wilkerson Wells.

      June 25, 1787 - Hendley Barron, a merchant, met at Leigh's Tavern in Alexandria, Va. to consider a petition to the next General Assembly to open another tobacco station (warehouse) in Alexandria. Hendley signed as part of the counter petition to oppose the creation.

      Nov. 1790 - Hendly Barron witnesses a Charles Co., Md. deed of 13 slaves, livestock and other personal property from [2-1) Thomas Barron to Dr. Gerard Wood and Henry Cooksey.
      Source: Charles Co., Md. Court and Land Records, Liber K No.4, p. 175.

      1799 - Fauquier Co., Va. Deeds. Henley and Margery Barron of Prince William Co., Va., sell to John Mauzy, 40 acres near Great Run in Fauquier Co. Va., part of a 1718 grant of 2900 acres to John and Rice Hooe.
      Source: Alcock. John P. "Fauquier Families, 1759-1799," p. 23.
      Comment: It is my assumption from this abstract that Henley and Margery are husband and wife; possibly they are related in a different way.

      Dec. 12, 1792 - Prince William Co., Va. Court Records. Dr. Hendley Barron moved from Charles Co., Md. to Prince William Co., Va. near the town of Dumfries. At that time he brought with him two slaves, one named Hector and one boy named Joe. "Before the move, the above named Negroes were his own property; that he owned them for several years and that he got the same from his father [unnamed] in whose family they had been raised. That he brought them over for no other purpose than to assist him in working his plantation."
      Source: Robert A. Barron.
      Comment: On Dec. 9, 1793, Thomas Barron, of Charles Co., Md. signed a deed of trust to Henry Cooksey and James Simms, of Charles Co., Md. The property deeded to the trust included Hector and the other Negroes named in the Nov. 1790 record above, which deed was witnessed by Hendly Barron. Source: Charles Co., Md. Circuit Court, Liber N No. 4, pp. 190-1. Neither the Nov. 1790 nor Dec. 9, 1793 deeds mentions a Negro Joe. Neither the Mar. 26, 1796 will of Thomas Barron nor the Jan. 7, 1805 will of his wife Margaret Burch Barron mentions any children (or Hendley Barron) indicating that they were childless, and therefore not Hendley's parents. Were there perhaps 2 different slaves named Hector at the same time in the Barron family?
