Joseph Tanner, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, Joseph Tanner might describe his life as follows.

As early as March 1662 I settled on my plantation “Baldwins” south of the James in Bermuda Hundred,  which is north of Hopewell where Bermuda Hundred Road crosses U.S. I-295. Because that area was then part of Henrico County where most court records before 1677 are missing, I can enlighten you little about myself. I can tell you that in 1688 after a jury made me pay only 10 pounds of tobacco when Thomas Osborne accused me beating some of his horses, he had to pay 3 witnesses 40 pounds each for the time they were in court. 
Because I served as county clerk during at least 1657-65,  I should have done a better job when I made my will 7 December 1668. Although the will no longer remains, subsequent records reveal that I left out the phrase “and his heirs forever” in a few places, causing some problems. 
I died before 26 June 1671 when a land patent issued to Robert Bowman Jr. described land as next to Joseph Tanner’s orphants
Mary and I had 4 “orphants” to be exact. She can describe her second marriage to Gilbert Platt. I will just say that although she did have a temper, she successfully managed the family for 30 years after my death.
Because Mary was “very sick & weak” in February 1688/9 when the will of her brother-in-law Edward Stratton was to be proved, the court had to send Francis Epes to take her deposition. 
Although our son Edward was still living when Mary made her will 10 March 1699/1700, headstrong as ever, she appointed our daughter Mary sole executor.

Joseph Tanner was clerk of Henrico County when he witnessed the 1665 will of Richard Cocke of Henrico. 
Mary Tanner was Joseph Tanner’s wife, yet we do not know her birth name. Mary’s sister, Martha, married 1st Thomas Sheppey and 2nd, Edward Stratton.

Tanner’s indentured servant runs off
Among Joseph Tanner’s indentured servants was John Crossman who ran off several times and was gone 33 days in all. Tanner lost 8 days looking for him and twice the county paid for his capture and return. In consideration of his reputation as a “notorious Runaway,” the court extended Crossman’s indenture 11 months and ordered 20 lashes to his bare back. 

Tanner’s will
Joseph’s now-lost will left the lower part of “Baldwins” to his two daughters. Not until 1694 did they divide the land between Mary (Tanner) Ligon and Martha (Tanner) Jones Haskins. Richard Ligon, the county surveyor, ran the line between their properties. 
Joseph left the upper portion of his plantation to his son Edward Tanner. Because he failed to insert the clause “and his heirs forever,” when Edward died the land reverted to Edward’s brother Joseph Tanner. Joseph acknowledged that his father intended the land to pass to Edward’s children and conveyed the land to Joseph Tanner in Feb. 1684/5.  Because their daughter’s inheritance was similarly tainted, Joseph likewise conveyed Martha Tanner’s land to her and her husband, Edward Haskins, and their eldest son Edward Haskins

The orphan’s land
Joseph’s orphans, Mary, Joseph, Edward, and Martha Tanner, patented to 650 acres in Henrico in Oct. 1673, which they secured with a deed 1 April 1681. 
In June 1718 the surviving Tanner heirs agreed to the division of the 650 acres: 150 acres to William Baugh and Lodowick Tanner, 162½ to Martha Tanner, 216 acres to Edward Tanner, and 162 acres to William Ligon. We do not know why these sum to 690 acres. William Baugh was not an heir but had bought part of “Baldwins.” 

Mary marries Gilbert Platt
Gilbert Platt, Mary’s 2nd husband, became the guardian of the 4 Tanner children 20 Aug. 1677. When she married, Mary had an Indian girl named Moll whom she gave to her son-in-law William Ligon in April 1679. 
Henrico County assured the rights of orphans through its Orphans Court, which met annually. Its 1677 assembly included an accounting of cattle belonging to the orphans of Joseph Tanner. Held by Gilbert Platt: “Starr, Pretty Maid, Moll, Buck and 2 two-year-old heifers alive—in all 6. Long Legge, Duck Legge, Pie, Green, Cole, and 2 calves dead—in all 7.”  The eldest heir, Joseph Tanner, became the guardian of the remaining orphans in 1683, and the court discharged Platt. 
In April 1687 Mary released all interests she might have had in the property belonging to her son Edward in return for 20 shillings per year until she died or until 1694. 

Dispute with Hugh Ligon
In 1689 Hugh Ligon was conversing with Mary Ligon, the wife of his cousin, Maj. William Ligon. Mary accused Hugh of trespassing in her wheat field and he confessed that he had been there. Mary’s mother, Mary Platt, overheard the conversation and accused Hugh of destroying her corn. We do not know what else she said but Hugh sued Gilbert and Mary Platt “for scandalous words spoken by the said Mary.”  Edward Tanner came to court as a witness. A jury ordered Mary Platt to pay 400 pounds of tobacco to Hugh.

Mary’s will
Although she had at least one son still living, she named her daughter, Mary Ligon, the executor of her will which was recorded 1 Feb. 1700/1.

Mary Platt
Mary Chamberlaine
William Anderson
William Ligon

We do not know why Charles Roberts was a legatee and Mary did not reveal his relationship to her. In Henrico County was Charles Roberts Sr. (c1657 ) and Charles Roberts Jr. (1677), presumably father and son. The elder Charles Roberts witnessed several deeds in Henrico County and saw Henry Lound, Thomas Chamberlaine, and John Willson execute their wills.
