Notes for ANN SPENCE:|
It is possible that Anne removed to Northumberland Co. VA with her oldest brother, David. On 20 July 1709, an Anne Lyon, wife of John Lyon and executrix of Hugh Callon, petitioned the Court to appoint Mr. John Downing, Charles Nelms and David Spence to appraise the said Callon's estate. Anne Spence could have married Callon first, then Lyon. (Downing was David's father-in-law.)
It is also possible that Anne remained near her mother in Maryland and married a Holland, as John Spence was one of the men who appraised the estate of an Ann Holland "at Wicomico" on April 27,1703. As it was the general practice to appoint at least one close male family member to handle or assist in handling an estate, it is reasonable to assume that Ann Holland and John Spence were closely related, possibly a brother and sister.
