  • Joseph Tanner Sr. was born circa 1629 also reported as circa 1640.
  • He married Mary Brown, daughter of John Brown and Ursula (?), in 1660.
  • Joseph Tanner Sr. died before June 1671.
     Joseph Tanner Sr. left a will Joseph’s now-lost will left the lower part of “Baldwins” to his two daughters. Not until 1694 did they divide the land between Mary (Tanner) Ligon and Martha (Tanner) Jones Haskins. Richard Ligon, the county surveyor, ran the line between their properties. [Henrico Co. Deeds & Wills 1688-97, p. 529]
Joseph left the upper portion of his plantation to his son Edward Tanner. Because he failed to insert the clause “and his heirs forever,” when Edward died the land reverted to Edward’s brother Joseph Tanner. Joseph acknowledged that his father intended the land to pass to Edward’s children and conveyed the land to Joseph Tanner in Feb. 1684/5. [Henrico Co. Deeds & Wills 1677-92, p. 311] Because their daughter’s inheritance was similarly tainted, Joseph likewise conveyed Martha Tanner’s land to her and her husband, Edward Haskins, and their eldest son Edward Haskins.

William Hatcher

M, b. 1614, d. 1680
  • William Hatcher was born in 1614.
  • He died in 1680.
     William Hatcher (born about 1614; died about 1678) of Henrico County. He came into the colony about 1635 and figured conspicuously as a resident of Henrico. He was a member of the House of Burgesses from that county, I644, I645, 1646, 1649 and 1652, and again in 1659. William Hatcher left a will circa 1676 The Will of William Hatcher, 1614-1680
Att a Court Holden at Varina
For the County of Henrico the first day of April (by his motion Justices of the Peace for said County) in the year of our Lord God 1680 and in the thirty-second year of the reign of our sovereign Lord, Charles The Second by the grace of God of Great Britain, Scotland and Ireland, King defender of the faith.

IN THE NAME OF GOD (amen) I William Hatcher being in perfect memory but now stricken in years do make my last Will and Testament in manner and form following. In prinks (?) I give and bequeath my spirit to Almighty God who gave it to me whensoever it shall please him to call me out of this sinful world and my body to the ground. Item: I give unto Thomas Burton, Jr. the plantation between the land of Mr. Henry Lound and the land of Gilbert Elam to wit: two hundred and twentysix acres, his choice of all my horses or mares, one heifer called blackchops, a young ewe, and a years schooling and clothes, till he reaches the age of seventeen years, to the confirmation of which I have hereunto set my hand and affixed my seal this two and twentieth day of February, 1676/7.

Signed and sealed in the presence of: John Pleasants, Henry Gee

Memorandum before the signing and sealing hereof, I do bequeath unto the above mentioned Thomas Burton Jr. the second choice of all my furniture thereunto belonging. s/Will Hatcher

Filed in Henrico County Court the first day of April 1680 by ye oath of Henry Gee and the testamony of John Pleasants who (being a Quaker) refused to sweare but only affirms that it to be Hatcher's deed, these two being witnesses to ye same.

From "The Family of Bartholomew Stovall, Volume 1, by Neil Thompson.

His Will, made when he was "well stricken in years" dated 1676/7, was proved 1 April 1680. It names no executor or residuary legatee and in fact mentions no child at all. On 26 September 1674 he had procured a patent for 227 acres of land in Henrico County; this land he devised for life to Thomas Burton Jr. together with the latter's choice of his horses and mares, one heifer, one Ewe, a years schooling, and clothing until he arrives at the age of seventeen, also the second choice of his bed and its furniture. Such a Will is more like a deed of a gift to one particular relative than a Will; the rest of his property was permitted to pass as in intestacy, and on 1 April 1680 Edward and Benjamin Hatcher, William Hatcher's surviving sons made a gift to the minor children of their deceased brother Henry of cattle and other personal property out of the estate of William Hatcher and then divided the residue among themselves.
