      "Captain David^1 Fox, merchant, received a grant of 372 acres on Moratico Creek, in Lancaster County, May 23, 1650. He received other grants at different times. He had the rank of captain and was a justice of the peace.
      He married twice: 1) Mary --; 2) about 1665 Anne Mottrom, widow of Richard Wright, merchant, and daughter of Colonel John Mottrom, merchant. In 1662 he made a deed to Robert Tomlin in trust for himself, during life, and then to his daughter, Hannah Fox, and in case of her failing to have heirs of her body, then to his son, David Fox. In 1664, he made a similar deed in Lancaster, giving to Hanna, his daughter, all wearing apparel belonging to his wife, Mary. On the death of Richard Wright in 1663, his widow, Anne Wright, is mentioned as marrying David Fox. His will was proved in Lancaster, January 6, 1664 [sic; s/b 1669], and the following is an abstract:
      "Will of David Fox, of Lancaster, Nov. 4, 1669:
      to wife Anne all the plantation I live on, with all houses, &c., which land I bought of Capt. Thos. Burbage dec'd, for her life or untill marriage, then to son David Fox according to a deed of gift; also to her all my Christian servants, except 3 English servants, which I give to my children William and Elizabeth, also one other English servant now at Piscataway to son David Fox.
      To son William and daughter Elizabeth all negroes not disposed of by former deeds, when they shall come of age or marry; to wife, son William, & daughter Elizabeth all other estate in Lancaster (except £100 sterling worth of Merchandising goods now in my store, which I give to son, David, & daughter Hannah).
      To son William and daughter Elizabeth the plantation I lately purchased of Mr. Thomas Colclough, of London, Merchant, in Northumberland County, Virginia, formerly belonging to Mr. George Colclough dec'd, brother of said Thomas, containing 2,266 acres; in case said Colclough shall not make a legal conveyance, I bequeath to said children £400 (which money with more, is now in hands of Jno. Jeffreys, of London, Merchant & said Colclough).
      To daughter, Rebecca, the wife of Robt. Tomlin [note: for Tomlin see _Va.
      Magazine_, V, 161]; £5 sterling, it being in full and the last of her portion.
      To wife, son William & daughter [sic] Hannah & Elizabeth this year crop of tobacco made in Lancaster; to son David all this year's crop of tobacco made at Piscataway. Rest of what money I have in England in the hands of Jeffreys & Colclugh, to wife, son Davyd & daughter Hannah.
      To parish of St. Mary White Chapel £20 sterling for glasing and other use of the church. Son Davyd sole executor & Mr. William Ball, Senior, & Mr. Edward Dale overseers. Proved January 6, 1669.
      "There is a silver communion cup preserved, on which is engraved 'The gift of David Fox, 1669.'
      "According to his will, Captain Fox had issue: 2 David; 3 Hannah, who married Major John Mottrom, son of Colonel John Mottrom, and had Spencer Mottrom, mentioned as son and heir in 1691 (Northumberland County records).
      David and Hannah Fox were probably by wife Mary; 4 William; 5 Elizabeth, which two last were probably by wife Ann. [leaves out Rebecca FOX Tomlin, who could not have been by Anne MOTTROM because she was married by 1669]"
