      1699-1709 Richmond County, Virginia Wills and Inventories [Robert K. Headley, jr.];

[William COLSTON, first clerk of the Rich. Co. court, mar. by 1681, Anne (GOOCH) BEALE, wid. of Capt. Thomas BEALE. MRC, p.42.]

      The earliest mention of Gilbert Hamilton was in 1728 when he witnessed the wills of Thomas and Elizabeth Beale. In Deed Bk 9: page 6, 29 Mar 1734, he bought land 195 ¼ acres. In that deed he is termed Gilbert Hamilton, merchant. Although this is the earliest indexed deed for him, the deed implies (but does not state clearly) that he owned a piece of adjacent land. About the same time, Gilbert began filing suits against various persons who owed him money. These suits also indicate that he was a merchant. In 1734, Gilbert was commissioned court justice in Richmond County. He served many years in that capacity. His will written 31 Aug 1765, proved 1 Feb 1768. In his will, he makes his wife his only heir. Elizabeth Hamilton, another daughter, wrote her will in 1780/81 Loudoun County, VA, names her mother, Anne Hamilton, wits. Robert Hamilton and Janet Carter.
