      Depositions on behalf of Claiborne:

      2p William Peirce, August 15, 1638,
      On the death of Captain Roger Smith at Mulberry Island in Virginia, his cattle were taken into the lands of Claiborne and Richard James as his executors. Smith owed Claiborne money. After his death he took an inventory of his goods and the estate was sold to Captain Richard Stephens.

      No. 32 Edmund Dawber c. William Claiborne

      Depositions on behalf of Dawber:

      2p Samuel Mathews, June 14, 1638,
      When Sir Thomas Gates died, his goods were put into the hands of Captain Roger Smith, except for the cattle which were sent elsewhere. Smith had some cattle owned by himself.

      1p John Woodall, June 21, 1638,
      Cannot say for sure how the goods of Sir Thomas Gates were divided up.

      2p William Peirce, June 15, 1638,
      Smith purchased some of the cattle belonging to Gates. After Smith's death the cattle came into the hands of Richard James and William Claiborne, More of the cattle were given to William Tracy and Thomas More.

      2p Sir Francis Wyatt, December 10, 1638,
      In 1622 some of the cattle of Gates were consigned to Roger Smith. Unsure whether George Yeardley ordered that other livestock should be given to William Tracy and Thomas More or to the people of Martin Hundred. After Smith's death, his goods came into the hands of Claiborne.

      has been several times stated in print that William Claiborne married in London (in 1638 some are even particular enough to state) Jane Buller, but this may also be considered doubtful. In November 1647, a grant of 700 acres in the corporation of Elizabeth City, was made to "Elizabeth Claiborne, the wife of Captain William Claiborne, Esqr., his Majesties Treasurer of this Colony of Virginia," for the transportation of fourteen persons, whose rights had been assigned to her by her husband in nature of a dower, according to an order of court June 11, 1644.

      It is, of course, possible that Col. William Claiborne married twice. If he married Elizabeth about the time that the dower was given, in 1644, she could hardly have been the mother of the eldest son, who as "Captain William Claiborne" received a grant in 1657. Contrary to what has been frequently stated, infants could, and frequently did receive grants, but they were not captains of militia in boyhood.

      The tradition that Col. Claiborne married a Buller can perhaps be accounted for by a statement in a letter from Governor Leonard Calvert to his brother, Lord Baltimore, written in 1638 (to W.H. Browne's "George and Cecilius Calvert," Page 68, &c.) in which he says that on Kent Island John Boteler, or Butler (he writes the name in each way), William Claiborne's brother-in-law, was at first disposed to resist the Maryland authorities, but afterwards submitted. Mr. Browne says that Boteler was appointed by Calvert commander of the militia of Kent Island, and held various offices of trust in the colony until his death in 1642.

      Col. William Claiborne, born in Westmoreland, England, 1587, came as surveyor for the Virginia Company of London with Gov. Wyatt in 1621; member of the Governor's Council from 1625 to 1660; secretary 1625 and treasurer of the Virginia colony; had one grant of 24,000 acres of land in King William County; established a trading post at Kent Island in 1631 which was later claimed by Gov. Leonard Calvert as belonging to Maryland Claiborne was appointed one of the three commissioners to rule Virginia under Cromwell. They arrived at the head of an English expedition in March 1652, overthrew the Cavalier Government and established a Roundhead Governor and Claiborne as Secretary of State. In 1658 the Province of Maryland was restored to Lord Baltimore. William Claiborne was colonel of a command against the Indians and in 1653 deputy governor. Seated at "Romancoke," King William County, he died 1676, having married in London about 1638 Jane Buller
