  • Notes 
    • The Virginia Genealogical Quarterly, 1977-78, pages 19-20, an article by Betty B. Winston: ".... On 15 April, 1754, the Rev'd Peter Fontaine wrote: 'My daughter Winston hath 3 fine boys. Peter, a month older than my Moses (going in his 12 yr.) Isaac about 9 yrs. old and William about 6. Their father, Mr. Isaac Winston, is the very best of husbands, a man of strict honesty and possessed of a very plentiful estate.' Rev. Fontaine's son Peter Junior wrote on 7 June 1754 'My sister Mary Ann Winston, and three sons Peter, Isaac and William are well. Mr. Isaac Winston, her husband, is a wealthy planter, and what is much better, a tender husband and a good Christian... Anne Fontaine (daughter of Francis Fontaine) lives with my sister Winston, who brought her up ... my brother Winston has given her a little beginning, in case she should marry and leave him, and provides for her handsomely, as I dare say he will continue to do so while she stays with him.' In a letter dated 7 August 1763 he writes that Anne Fontaine married Thomas Owen and has two children. On 29 August 1765, Isaac Winston of Henrico County gave to Fontaine Owen, son of Thomas, a negro girl named Tempy. On 8 July 1765, he writes that Aaron Fontaine (half brother of Mary Ann, born 1754: their father the Rev'd Mr. Fontaine had died in 1757) now lives with Mr. Isaac Winston. He continues 'I have also lately seen Mr. Isaac Winston and his family. They are well except my sister who is in but a lot state of health."
