Pedigree Chart 07
Joyce Harwood might describe her life as follows.

Because most early records of Charles City County are gone, I cannot reveal the name of my first husband, the father of our sons Samuel, Joseph, and Robert Harwood.
I married second Andrew Meldrum who had a son with that same name. The elder Mr. Meldrum was one of 12 good citizens who, after viewing the body of Teague Carroll in November 1664, concluded he drowned trying to board the John and Mary in the James. 
My now-lost will named Samuel Harwood and Andrew Meldrum executors. When they did not distribute my estate quickly enough, Robert Harwood sued them in August 1693.  The court divided my estate in December 1693, awarding Robert one-third, confirming that I then had 3 living children. 
My sons were dependable Charles City County citizens. Joseph and Robert Harwood answered the summons for jury duty in December 1693, and Robert and Samuel in April 1695.  The court impaneled all 3 sons on the same jury in August 1695. 
Joseph married Agnes, and Samuel married Temperance, both daughters of the very wealthy Mr. Thomas Cocke.

The court dismissed a suit that Joseph Harwood brought against Robert Harwood Dec. 1693,  and Joseph acknowledged a deed to his “brother Samuel Harwood” 5 Feb. 1693/4.
