      HENRY ARMISTEAD, late of Carolina County in Virginia Colony beyond seas, Esq., deceased, a widower. Administration to December 1748 to Edward Hunt, attorney of William Armistead, Esq., son of the defunct, now residing in Virginia. P. C. C. Admon Act Book, 1748.
      [Henry Armistead, son of Colonel John Armistead, of Gloucester county, member of the Council, lived on the Pianketank river, Gloucester, at a place called " Hesse." He married Martha ( baptized November 16, 1685), daughter of Major Lewis Burwell, the young lady with whom Governor Nichollson was so much infatuated. In 1733 he was sworn county lieutenant of Caroline, and must have resided during the latter portion of his life in that county. He had issue: i. William, of " Hesse," who married, in 1739, Mary, daughter of James Bowles, of Maryland, and sister of Mrs. Eleanor Gooch-Lewis; 2. Lucy, married Thomas Nelson, of Yorktown, Secretary of Virginia; 3. Martha, married Dudley Digges; 4. Robert. See Armistead genealogy, William and Mary Quarterly, Vols. VI, VII, and VIII.].
