Descendants of William Stringfellow

Generation No. 1

1. WILLIAM1 STRINGFELLOW was born Abt. 1700 in England, and died April 1746 in King George County, Virginia. He married SARAH DOROTHY ELKINS May 15, 1726, daughter of RICHARD ELKINS and ELIZABETH BRYANT. She was born Abt. 1700, and died October 13, 1761 in King George County, Virginia.

Notes for W
1. Some researchers indicate that William Stringfellow came from Scotland. I have found no evidence of that. The name Stringfellow is certainly not of Scottish origin, and all of my references indicate that he came from England. Some of William's descendants moved from Virginia to Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, etc. Also, at least one early researcher indicated that William had as his first wife one Mary Anne (Blackgrove?). I have found no evidence of this either other than the one reference by that early researcher. It is, of course, entirely possible that William had married Mary Anne in England, that they made the crossing together, and that she died soon after reaching America.
2. King George County, Virginia Will Book A-1, page 273, May 2, 1746: "Administration on the estate of William Stringfellow, deceased, is granted to Sarah Stringfellow and on the same day she gave bond in the sum of 100 #'s current money as his administratrix with Richard Elkins, her security (Bond Book No.3, page 51)." On March 4, 1747/48 the King George Court ordered David Bronaugh, Adam Banks and David Grant to divide the estate of William Stringfellow, deceased, and allot David Seale his part and the remainder to Richard Elkins.
4. "Marriages of Virginia Residents", records Sarah Stringfellow's marriage to David Seal(e), gives the date of her death, and says "widow of William Stringfellow (d. 1746)".
5. "Virginia Wills and Administrations", records William Stringfellow of King George County as having died intestate in that county in 1746.
