John Farlow-Mary Win(g)field

I'm searching for any descendants of Mary Wingfield, the daughter of Jarvis Win(g)field and Hannah (Wynne?). Mary's father died intestate in 1756 (aged 89 years!), with a large slave estate. His heirs sued over the slaves, providing the names of Jarvis and Hannah's children. Jarvis died in Sussex County, Virginia, leaving three sons and three daughters among whom one was Mary. It SEEMS that she married a John Farlow. However there are no references to Farlows that I have found in Sussex, or in the neighboring counties. The other children stayed in the area with many references, so I am not sure the clerk did not mis-transcribe Farlow, but I can't find any other easy alternative either.

Jarvis Wingfield originally came from Prince George county, Virginia, near the present day city of Petersburg. I believe there were Farlows just accross the river in Henrico county, and of course Mary and John could have moved from Sussex (or never even have lived there). Mary and John would have both been born ca 1700 more or less. In addition, they probably would have been of a relatively high socio-economic class. Does anyone recognize a possible early John and Mary farlow? Thanks.
