These are the entries from Chapman's Isle of Wight book. I think William is the father of Col John Lawrence since John is mentioned in his grandmother Ann APPLEWHAITE's 1746 will, his father's will 1756 given land in Southampton County, and then his mother Sarah APPLEWHAITE's 1762 will. Her parents are Henry and Ann. John married Mary BRIDGERS of James and Susanna at Isle of Wight. I don't have a death date for John, he is a collateral line for me.

Lawrence, William will dated 8 Sep 1756 recorded 2 Jun 1757. Legatee daughter Penelope; son John; wife Sarah; son John land in Southampton County; daughters Molly, Ann and Sally; son Miles. Exc wife and brother-in-law Arthur Applewhaite; witness John Darden, Jesse Watkins and Joshua Council. [6:269]

Lawrence, William estate appraised by Daniel Herring, Michael Eley and Joshua Council 7 Sep 1758. [6:429]

Lawrence, Sarah of Newport Parish. Will dated 6 Oct 1762 recorded 2 Dec 1762. Legatee sons John and Mills; daughters Mary and Ann; Thomas Lankford Sr. Exc brother Arthur Applewhaite; witness Thomas Lankford, Hardy Lawrence Jr and Sarah Lawrence. [7:209]
