    • === Research Notes by Pamela Pearson

      Margaret Sharp/Sharpe of Lancaster Co left will dated 20 Apr 1709; proved Jan Court 1709/10. Parts of the will are difficult to read. Mentions son Thomas Sharpe; dau Elinor Maryman (likely the wife of the Thomas Merryman who d. 1718 with wife Elinor; note that Thos. Sharpe witnessed Merryman's will); and dau Elizabeth. The will appears to mention "my three youngest children" without giving their names (this part was hard to read). The will is not abstracted in Ida Lee's book, but it is recorded in Lancaster Co, VA Wills Etc. No. 10: 101-103. Margarett Sharp was listed among Lancaster Co tithables dtd 10 Nov 1698. Presumably her husband was decd by this date. (Lancaster Co, VA Orders, 1695-1699, p. 78-79)
