      On February 7, 1687 William Sherwood left his will in James City County. He owned a large part of Jamestown Island, including Pitch and Tar Swamp. He left all his property, following the death of his wife, Rachel, to Jeffery Jeffries, of London, Esquire. His widow, Rachel, married Edward Jacquelin, her third husband, but they had no children.

      On December 11, 1704 Sir Jeffery Jeffries deeded to Edward Jacquelin the 400 acres he had received from William Sherwood's will. William Sherwood's will also said he wanted Jeffery to send a gravestone from London, which would read: "Here lies William Sherwood that was born in the Parish of White Chapel, near London, a great sinner waiting for a joyful resurrection". He also said: "I give to such poor of the parish of White Chapel as Jeffery Jeffries, Esquire, Mica Perry merchant, Matthew Bateman, and Joseph Bassett of the parish, or any two of them shall think fit ten pounds sterling." He also said: "I give Mary Abotrobus ten pounds to be paid by Jeffery Jeffries and her full freedom, corn, and clothes, but if my wife do not think fit to keep Mary, or died, before she be free then I desire my friend William Edwards and his wife to take her. I give my loving wife, Rachel, the use of my personal estate during her natural life and after her death I give it to my very good friend Jeffery Jeffries, Esquire, or my wife may keep 1/2 and I give 2/3 to Jeffery Jeffries.
