Please read the introductory message (#857) for an
explanation of this file.

WARNING: I can't guarantee that all the information here
is correct.


has a family of Burtons from VA. One of the descendants is

John Burton [7120.] (-c.1796) was given 123 acres on
Pokeshock Creek by his father 22 February 1785. John�s widow was
Sarah so we presume he was the John Burton who married Sarah
Horner in Chesterfield County 6 August (bond) 1775.
Sarah was a daughter of Benjamin Horner who left her �1 Negro� in
his 1766-will. Sarah�s mother, who had the distinctive name of
Sabrina (�) Horner, left her daughter a bed and some household
items in her 1773-will. She chose neighbor Benjamin Beasley her
guardian 6 May 1774.
Although another John Burton had wife, Sarah, this one named a son
Benjamin, presumably after Sarah�s father.
John did not appear in his father�s will for he died by 14 February
1797 when the Chesterfield County court granted Sarah Burton and
Charles Burton administration of his estate. Sarah was evidently
John�s widow as she later consented from a daughter to marry.
A chancery court suit in September 1800 identified John�s heirs.

William Burton [7120.] was a legatee of the
1801-will of his paternal grandfather. He chose Miles Cary his
guardian April 1801. With surety his brother-in-law John
> Burton, William married Susanna Rigsby, daughter of Henry
Rigsby, in Chesterfield County 28 November 1811. [R18.1]

Elizabeth Burton [7120.] was a legatee of the
1801-will of her aunt Sally Burton.

Mary Burton [7120.] married Samuel Hardin
Pankey in Chesterfield County 11 October 1798. Her first
cousin and husband represented his wife and her siblings in the
lawsuit of 1800.

Frances Burton [7120.], called �Frankey.�

Sarah Burton [7120.], called �Sally,� daughter of
John Burton, deceased, married John Burton in Chesterfield
County 5 October (bond) 1809.

Benjamin Burton [7120.].
