Child of William Standley and Judith is:
  64 i.   Moses Standley, born Abt. 1752 in Orange, Virginia; died Abt. 1795 in Henry, Virginia; married Elizabeth Hill Byrd Abt. 1773 in Henry, Virginia.

      130. Colonel William Byrd, born 06 Sep 1728 in Henrico, Virginia; died 01 Jan 1777 in Westover, Charles City, Virginia. He was the son of 260. William Byrd and 261. Lucy Park. He married 131. Elizabeth Hill Carter 14 Apr 1748 in Corotoman, Lancaster, Virginia.

      131. Elizabeth Hill Carter, born 13 Oct 1731 in Shirley Plantation, Charles City, Virginia; died 25 Jul 1760 in Charles City, Charles City, Virginia. She was the daughter of 262. John Carter and 263. Elizabeth Hill.

Notes for Colonel William Byrd:
Military: entitled, as Col. of the Va. Regt, 5 Nov 1773, , , Virginia, USA. 3 Esq., entitled, as Col. of the Va. Regt., to 5,000 acres of land agreeable to the King's Proc. of 1763. Williamsburg.

He signed a will dtd 6 Jul 1774, probated 5 Feb in 1777 in Westover, Charles City, Virginia, USA. 2 William asked that he be buried by the tomb of his sister Evelyn in the old Church Yard. He stated that through his own folly and inattention to accounts, inept managers, and villany of others, he was leaving great debt. He ordered the sale of 100 Negroes, what part of plate and household furniture his wife could spare, together with his library and part of his stock as necessary to cover his debts.
He had a disputed accont with Col. Chiswell, probably over the Chiswell mine in Fincastle Co which he left to son John. He left "Westover" and "Buckland" to his wife as well as all else left after the sale. At her death all was to be sold and divided among his living children at that time.
To be deducted from the share was what he had from his first wife and what her children may claim from his deluded and insane mother and his ungrateful son William, except the Ferry at the Falls left to my son John by his brother William, which gift I have confirmed. He deducted 500 poundssterling from dau. Elizabeth that he had paid to her husband, Mr. Farley, that sum under the unjust will of his insane Mother. His sonTom was to have 400 pounds deducted as that amount had been paid for his commission and and further payment for his promotions to be deducted from his dividends (commissions for officers were bought in the English service). Tom was to get only one shilling if he married Susannah Randolph, dau of the Attorney General in 1774.
He stated that if son Otway should quit the Navy before his widow's death, he was to get only one shilling (he did just that in 1775 to join the Patriots and one wonders if this order was executed. He gave son Charles, who had never offended him, 1,000 acres in Fincastle called Salt Springs. All of the children by his second wife were given two or more Slaves including his then unborn son, Richard; Elizabeth from his first wife was given Rachel amd her family. His son, William Powell Byrd, conceived after the will was written was not listed but perhaps there was a codicil. He wished that his servant, Jack White, be freed at the death of his widow and that such be recommended to the Governor and Council as he had not only been the best of servants but had served him many times from the grave.\
