    1. [S67] Wade History,
      Ann Cawthorn (Cothan), who married William Wade, was a daughter of Christopher Cawthorn. She and eight of their children were named by William Wade in his will which was dated 02 November 1771 and proved on 16 March 1772. (Goochland
      County Virginia, Deed Book 10, page 200). He left all of his lands on Lickinghole Creek in Goochland County to his three sons, Dabney Wade, William Abinadab Wade and Jonadab Wade, to be divided equally. To wife Ann he bequeathed his ?manour plantation? for the term of her widowhood and 1/8 part of his estate for life, which, at her death, was to be divided equally among his children, when they reached the age of 21, Dabney Wade, William Abinadab Wade, Jonadab Wade, Rosannah Wade, Joannah Wade, Hannah Wade, Anna Wade and Susannah Morriss, which, it was noted, already had her legacy. In case he died before he completed a deed to Pleasant Wallace for 245 acres on Tuckahoe Creek, he instructed his
      executors, wife Ann, son Dabney and friend Joseph Woodson, to sell it to Wallace, with son Dabney making the deed. He admonished his wife to keep the estate together and divide it as the children came of age. The will was witnessed by Benjamin Herndon, John Herndon and Nathaniel Wade.
