      Research notes from Michael Cooley
      The author of an 1895 article for the William and Mary Quarterly writes that a Virginia court record of 1641 references the wife of Richard Bennett (c1608-1675) as "lately Mary Ann Utie," wording that is decidedly open to interpretation. He suggests "she perhaps was a daughter of Captain John Utie," but the "perhaps" part of the sentence is often stricken from the narrative.2 More to the point, John Bennett Boddie wrote in 1948 that on December 15, 1642, the County Court of Lower Norfolk reasserted its order of the previous year, 1641, and again required that one Richard Foster "pay unto Mrs. Marian Utie, now the wife of Richard Bennett, Esq., 114 lbs. tobacco."3 The 1895 suggestion had simply been a misinterpretation of the earlier order.
      Whether by design or chance, the second record is more specific about Mary Ann's identity. That a researcher would reference the 1895 article without knowing about Boddie's work is understandable. But I have literally been cursed for pointing out the correction; never mind that it was first observed more than seven decades earlier. Now a cynic on this topic, the reason for this vehemence is clear enough to me: Descendants of Richard Bennett, one-time governor of Virginia, also wish to claim descent from Captain John Utie. The 1642 record clearly disproves the assertion. Richard Bennett's wife was the widow, not the daughter, of John Utie
