      The will of Edward Ford was dated 1/16/1693-1/19/1693. He devised to his wife Elizabeth "Dog's Point" during life and then to his son, Edward Ford. He also named an unborn child.

      11/13/1695: Deed from Thomas Whichaley and his wife Elizabeth, relict and Exec. of Edward Ford dec'd to Thomas Austin.

      8/11/1696: Deed from Thomas Whichaley and his wife, Elizabeth (relict and Exec. of Edward Ford) to Pryor Smallwood and Bayne Smallwood for 10,000 lbs. tobacco "Christian Temple Manor" on Mattawoman or St. Thomas' Creek bounded by pt. of said manor belonging to Richard Newton and Richard Marshall, containing 200 ac.

      Charles Allanson's will 2/20/1698 devised his estate to his son Thomas and stated that if Thomas died without heirs, the property was to go to the children of his sister, Elizabeth and her husband, Edward Ford.
