Notes for Ann Batchelder:|
Regarding Ann's surname the following information from:
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~jcat2/will1734amh.html is important:
Abstract of Will of Alvin MOTHERSHEAD filed 3 June 1735 in Richmond County, Lunenberg Parish, VA To Godson George MORTON, son of William MORTON, all land which I bought of Thomas SIMS, John DOYLE, and James DOYLE containing 360 acres, If he has no heirs, to go to his brother, Jeremiah MORTON; to John MORTON, son of William MORTON, all the land I bought of William MORTON his said father, if he has no heirs, to his sister Sarah MORTON; Elijah MORTON, son of William MORTON; Anne, Elizabeth, and Jane (daughters of William MORTON); brother John MOTHERSHEAD and friend William MORTON. Witnesses: William JORDAN, Arjalon PRICE, Matthew KNIGHT. Another researcher believes that this shows only that William Morton's wife was a Motherhead when he married her. Her maiden name, he believes, is Batchelor. He states the following "1. Ann Mothershead to Willam MORTON prior to 1740 [source: Genealogies of Virginia Families From The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, Volume IV Healy - Pryor; indexed by Toby Drews; Genealogical Publishing Co; 1981; Chapter: "The Morton Patriarchs of Virginia" by Daniel Morton, M.D. of St. Joseph MO] It should also be noted that Alvin MOTHERSHEAD, had extensive land transactions with William MORTON and in Alvin MOTHERSHEAD's Will of 1734 filed in Richmond County VA, he left land to William MORTON's children.) New note: My personal opinion is that the Ann MOTHERSHEAD referred to above was NOT born a Mothershead, but was actually Ann BATCHELOR, daughter of Mary and Thomas BATCHELOR/BATCHELDER. I can find nothing yet to prove that William MORTON married into the MOTHERSHEAD family. My personal opinion is that many years ago another researcher jumped to the conclusion that Ann "must" have been born a MOTHERSHEAD simply because Alvin MOTHERSHEAD, in his Will of 1734, left land to his GODSON, George MORTON who was the son of the above referenced Ann and William MORTON. I believe that if there was a blood relationship to Ann, then that familial relationship would have been mentioned in Alvin's Will, not just the term "Godson". If you can prove what Alvin's relationship really was to Ann and William MORTON, I'd appreciate it if you'd email me! :)" His website is at http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~jcat2/kyvamarriages.html
