[Bonnie Hamilton.FTW] 4/7 /1700 Huldah Binford, Merchant's Hope married William Ladd. Hinshaw's
Encyclopedia of Quaker Genealogy vol. VI p. 158

"Virginia Quaker Stanleys and Descendants" quotes a "testimonial from Friends in Virginia
concerning William Ladd (son of John) read at the Virginia Yearly Meeting on 9 May 1761: "William Ladd,
son of John and Mary Ladd, both from old England, was born near Curles (Henrico County) in Virginia, in
the sixth month 1679." That book also lists John and Mary's children as Amos, Sarah, Racell, Elizabeth,
and William. William Ladd, 1679-1751, son of John, of Charles City co, VA, married in 1701 Huldah
Binford, whose father Anthony Binford was also one of the early settlers in VA. They had four children
who married. 500 acres of land were granted to William Ladd on the north side of the James river, in the
fork of Beaver Dam Creek, in Henrico co, Virginia, June 16, 1714. The remainder of the testimonial
quoted above tells more about William "... about the time of his marriage he removed to Wainoak,
became a member of that meeting, and resided there the remainder of his days. He had an acceptable
gift in the ministry, and was a great sufferer for bearing a testimony against the hireling ministers. In one
instance, a very exorbitant seizure was made upon his effects, yet he lived to see the officer who made it,
reduced to such low circumstances, that he charitably contributed to supply his necessities. He
continued a faithful sufferer to the end of his days, encouraging his children to faithfulness saying: 'The
truth is more to me than my all in this world.' The night of his decease, one of the family saying: 'This was
to be a night of great sorrow to them,' he replied 'It was a night of great joy to him' which was one of the
last of his expressions. He died 27th of the ninth month, 1751, and was buried in the family burying-
ground near his own house, aged seventy-two, and a minister about 25 years.” The minutes of Henrico
Monthly Meeting from 1726 to 1779 include several references to John, William and James, Amos,
Thomas, and Huldah each being fined on various dates and having household goods, animals,
boots, pewter, and tobacco seized for refusal to pay tithes, priest’s wages, and militia fines, and refusal
to bear arms. In 1811 Benjamin H, Benjamin W and Robert had money, sheep and corn taken for refusal
to muster; and again in 1815 they had seized corn, a horse, and a copper kettle "for not repairing to place
of rendezvous on a notice in 1813."_"A Collection of Memorials Concerning the People called Quakers" in

hist: "the Quakers were the first or among the first to begin Christian worship" in Goochland per VA Gen

"Genito" or "Dover" Meeting on the north bank of the James River in Goochland Co.
bio: per S Wellons. There is a statement dated Feb 1821, at the Goochland
Courthouse record office, by Thomas B. Watkins regarding the wishes of Benjamin Watkins as he lay
dying. In the statement by Thomas Watkins, it clearly names Martha Crawford, Frankie Knibb, David
Watkins and a John Watkins. This Thomas B. Watkins may be the brother of Benjamin Watkins and both
may be the sons of Benjamin Watkins and Pricilla Binford.

My speculation that this Benjamin Watkins could be in line of Henry1 Watkins Sr; b 1638; Immigrant,

A_Crozier. p 160. Goochland County Marriage Bonds.
m: disowned by the Cedar Creek Meeting because married out of unity. To the Quakers, correct conduct
according to their faith was a serious matter to be taken into their daily lives. Church rules and discipline
were strictly maintained. A marriage involved the church. The parties had to first declare their intentions
at a monthly meeting. A committee was appointed to investigate the clearness of the parties and report
at the next monthly meeting. If a Quaker married a non-member, he was said to have married out of unity,
for which he or she was disowned. Complaint was made against members for unseemly conduct,
dressing too gaily, swearing, lying, frivolous talk, military service, gambling, drinking, not paying debts,
holding slaves, absence from church, fighting and for more serious offenses. For any of these, he might
be disowned. A member was not allowed to go to Law without the consent of the meeting. The church
appointed a committee to visit the erring member to help him see the error of his way. A disowned
member ceased to exist as far as the church was concerned. Often parents did not allow a disowned heir
to inherit. per Hutchins Family by Hutchins.
