The above Will of Henry Crompton was Proved in open Court by the Oath of Arthur Williams one of the Subscribing

Witnesses thereto…

(transcribed by Marc Anderson)

* the will of Arthur Williams was witnessed by Nicholas Boon and Nicolas Boon  1735__________________________________________________________________

Williams, Arthur. Bertie County.

August 8, 1735. February Court, 1739. Sons: Arthur (water mill and lands on Creek), Robert (lands on Potecasi Creek above ye Wildcat Swamp, land on Mahering River at Walnut Field, lands called the Goose Pond), John (“plantation I now live on” and land called the Reedy Branch), Moab (lands on River and land on Pottecasi called the Roundabout). To John and Moab is bequeathed small water mill. All negroes divided among sons. Executors: Robert and William (sons). Witnesses: Abraham Burton, Nicholas Boone, Nicholas Boone, Junr. Clerk of the Court: John Wynns.           Grimes, Abstract of North Carolina wills

This Arthur Williams was also from Isle of Wight.  My theory is that Elizabeth Anderson was the wife of George Anderson who had property from 1695 to 1710… then sold out.  His next door neighbor was John Sellaway… note this Arthur Williams tidbit…

On 26 September 1719, shortly after the death of his father in Virginia, Arthur Williams “of Albemarle County [sic] in North Carolina,” executed a deed of gift to his brother John of 320 acres, “part of the [aforementioned] 925 acres granted to my father John Williams, deceased.” From the same grant, Arthur Williams “of Bertie” deeded further property to John Sellaway and Elizabeth Bressie in 1729/30. See the Isle of Wight Great Book, p. 300; Isle of Wight Deed Book # 4, pp. 60, 63.

A good site for Arthur Williams info…       The “apparent” connection with these folks is remarkable.


???  This guy would have to die in his eighties to be relevant… pretty unlikely…

There is also a Henry Crompton north of the James River in this time period… variously described as “New Kent county, St. Peter’s parish, Goochland etc…. I can’t make a connection.
