WARNING: I can't guarantee that all the information here
has a family of Burtons from VA. One of the descendants is
John Burton [718.104.22.168.2.3] (-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 [722.214.171.124.2.3.1] 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 [7126.96.36.199.2.3.2] was a legatee of the
1801-will of her aunt Sally Burton.
Mary Burton [7188.8.131.52.2.3.3] 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 [7184.108.40.206.2.3.4], called �Frankey.�
Sarah Burton [7220.127.116.11.2.3.5], called �Sally,� daughter of
John Burton, deceased, married John Burton in Chesterfield
County 5 October (bond) 1809.
Benjamin Burton [718.104.22.168.2.3.6].
