      Wills of Westmoreland County, Virginia , Page 95
      BAYLEY, ANN, 13 March 1731; 25 Oct. 1732. Granddau. Anne Quisenberry; my great grandson Baynham Burch; granddau. Elizabeth Cox; great grandson Bayley Washington 2 negroes; Jane wife of Giles Esther; Benjamin Akers 20 shillings; William Brown 20 shillings; granddau. Mary Washington and her husband Henry Washington; granddau. Anne Quisenberry and her son Baynham Burch and his sister Ann.

      1) there were two John Butlers in Washington Co Va.. one died 1677 married to Anne Baynham and the other John died 1684 married to Sarah Veale/Peale. John 1677 mentions only son Thomas and daughter Grace.

      in John 1684 estate records Charles Baldridge in named.. same Charles is mentioned in his grandmother Dorothy Cooke Baldridge 1662 will. No kids are mentioned in John 1684 will but I'm willing to bet Sarah Butler born abt 1674 and married John Berryman b. 1670 is a daughter named after her mother. No - she had to be a d/o John Butler d. 1677 to have grandkids

      2) that means this 1732 will is for the mother of Basil Bayley who married Anne Robins, and Mary Baley their daughter married Henry Washington.

      3) Caleb Butler mentions sister Anne wife of Joseph Bayley in his 1718 will which means Anne's maiden name is not Baynham.... unless he means s-i-l. this seems to be the only solution.

      4) We know Anne Baynham was born about 1656 to have a couple kids by John Butler d. 1677 and then marry 2nd Alexander Webster d. 1703. therefore she married Joseph Bayley bet 1703 and 1707.

      5) Joseph Bayley b. bef 1645 is nearly identical to the Joseph Bayley s/o Joseph Bayley d. 1674 in Lancaster Co. Va.

      6) Basil Bayley must be the s/o Joseph Bayley by a first wife

      7) The Elizabeth MNU who married William Quisenberry could also be a d/o Joseph Bayley by an earlier wife. No - See Item 9

      8) GD Elizabeth Cox ??

      9) Granddau. Anne Quisenberry; my great grandson Baynham Burch ? Sarah Butler married Benjamin Berryman, their d/o Anne married John Burch who died 1729. She remarried to John Quisenberry
