Allied Family Topic W

 W   William Worsham I (-c.1660)
Although I am not a descendant of William Worsham I, some of his descendants married into my family. Consequently, I have devoted Allied Family Topic W to his family.

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

I arrived in the Colony of Virginia by 1640 when Seth Ward sold me 200 acres at the old Indian Town, near Swift Creek, in what was then Henrico County. George Worsham, who may have been my brother, got a neighboring 200 acres 15 February 1652/3. 
My wife, Elizabeth, and I lived at “Jordans” on Bailey Creek in what was then Charles City County and is today Prince George.  We were the parents of five children.
I was a county commissioner of Charles City County from April to August 1657,  and George was justice of the peace for Henrico in 1656.
After my death, probably in the late 1650s, Elizabeth married Francis Epes, the second of his name in the Colony, who was by then the father of the third Francis Epes. He became father to my children. Charles and Mary were still minors 20 August 1678 when Epes gave the court an accounting of some livestock that belonged to them. 
Elizabeth’s wills of 1678 remembered children of both marriages.

It has been suggested that William’s wife was Elizabeth Littleberry since she gave one of her sons by a 2nd marriage that peculiar name. Yet there is no evidence.

Elizabeth’s 2nd husband was the son of Francis Epes who was in the colony by 1625. A patent issued to the elder Epes 26 Aug. 1635, stated that the land granted to him was for the “personal adventure” of himself and for the transportation of his sons John Epes, Francis Epes, Thomas Epes, and 30 others. 

Elizabeth’s will
Elizabeth left a will in Henrico County in 1678 remembering daughter Elizabeth Kennon and her daughter Mary Kennon, daughter Mary Epes, son John Worsham, and her husband Epes’ children, whom she did not name (will dated 28 Aug. 1678  and proved 1 Oct. 1678 ).
She amended the will 23 Sept. 1678 to confirm gifts to children by her 1st husband, William Worsham, including John and Charles, and to divide the rest of her estate among children she had by her late husband Francis Epes, namely William Epes, Littlebury Epes, and Mary Epes. She appointed executors son-in-law Richard Kennon and stepson Francis Epes.
