      WILLS OF Westmoreland County, Virginia 1654-1800 BY AUGUSTA B. FOTHERGILL: Pg 9
      WALKER, JOHN, no date; probated 8 March 1665.
      John Lampkin; George Lampkin; eldest dau. Connegan Lampkin all her mother's clothes; my son in law Thomas Lampkin.

      mm: my interpretation of this will is that John Walker married the widow of Thomas Lampkin and did not have kids of his own.

      Your email about the Lynch land made me look at the Walkers again. William Walker, your I23793, had a son named John whom he provided for in his will. A lot of people including me felt this was your I71740 and I82898 John Walker who left a will with property to Thomas Lamkin. Dr. Harold E. Wilkins, The Descendants of Thomas Lamkin, Newby St. Press, Boston, 2001, disagreed and felt this John Walker was the son of Edward Walker not William. I now agree.

      20 Sept 1650 Northumberland County, Virginia Edward Walker, Patent, 900 Acres in Northumberland, on Potomac at Yeocomico River, adjacent Thomas Hayles....Trans 18 persons, including himself, Sarah his wife, John Walker and Richard Holding (Holden) and Grace his wife. (C & P I-198) The rights of John Walker, in this patent were signed over to William Bacon, May 20 1656. (Recs 1652-58 p76)

      Northumberland County, Virginia 1656. Edward Walker, WILL written Dec 2, 1650, proved September 20, 1656. All estate to beloved son, John Walker, inventory to be taken by friends Henry Haylor and George Thompson. WIT: Anne Compton, Grace Holdin, George Thompson. Proved by Anne Compton and Henry Haylor. (Recs 1652-58 p93)

      This puts John Walker on the Potomac. The Lamkins were still in Northumberland then, soon to come into Westmoreland, but nowhere near the Potomac.

      WD 5-571 12/19/1715 JEREMIAH GARLAND to GEORGE ESKRIDGE 200 acres on Yeocomico Neck, 90 of which were sold by THOMAS LAMKIN to Nathaniel Garland, father of Jeremiah on 2/21/1681/2, and the residue coming from Philip Ludwell Lee, Agent for the Lords Proprietor of the Northern Neck by patent of 1692.
      THIS IS POTOMAC LAND AT LYNCH POINT. GARLANDS LATER BOUGHT MORE FROM LYNCH.

      How did it get to Lamkin by 1681/2? It came from the will of John Walker, son of Edward who had the patent in the same place.

      William Walker did have a son John and did leave him 200 acres. I could never get it to track with the nearby Lamkin land, and the same 200 was deeded out to others. I began to doubt that John, son of William survived very long. If he died intestate, the land would have gone back to Williamís other son, who did indeed sell it.

      WD 1-291 3/8/1666 [Not indexed except in the deed book itself] Will of JOHN WALKER Mentions elder daughter Commegan, who must have married Lampkin. John Lampkin received the residue [which would have been the western most part of the 200 acres under William(I)'s will. It tracks pretty closely to the location of the present house called "Lamkin" on the west side of Rt. 202 which was built in the mid 19th Century.]

      WD 14-152 7/3/1764 George Lamkin to Vincent Rust 127 acres bounded by Rust, Fleet Cox, Thomas Bennet, Jr. And Thomas Bennet, Sr. Which land was given to Lamkin by his father George Lamkin in 1757. [This is probably the same or part of the land willed above by John Walker. By this time Bennets had the old Holden patent land south and southeast of Walker's.]
