Capt. William Walker I, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, Capt. William Walker I might describe his life as follows.

As my father-in-law, Francis Warren, explained, we were both “headrights” for Charles Edmonds in 1658. 
Because the records of New Kent went up in smoke, I cannot say much about my life. Yet the 1704 tax register has 3 entries for me. I had 650 acres in New Kent County and as Capt. Walker held another 400 acres.  Henrico County, just across the Chickahominy, charged me on 550 acres where Joan Brooks lived.  This latter tract included 400 acres held in trust for my son Sylvanus who inherited it from Francis Warren.
By my first wife, the daughter of Francis Warren, I was likely the father of three sons: Francis, William, and Sylvanus Walker. I married second Elizabeth and we were the parents of perhaps as many as 8 children whom we reared in Henrico County.
I was dead by 5 August 1723 when Elizabeth Walker presented my now-lost will in Henrico County. 
Elizabeth made her will 16 January 1726/7 enumerating her 8 children,  and was dead by 3 June 1728 when the court ordered the will recorded.

Joanna Brooks testified in April 1694 that she was 40.  We do not know her connection to William Walker.
