You have Charles born 1700, based on I know not what, but that is the date a great many researchers have focused on.
I submit (a) That you have his father and mother marrying in about 1690, which makes 1700 for Charles untenable, and (b) the following record from 1724 Stafford Co, with my comment. (Note that Graham records were often misrecorded as Grimes and vice versa.).
Finally (c) and (d) ,,,, (c) I am working to try to disprove that Patience's maiden name was Stafford, a claim that may be true but it should also be noted that Edward and family lived in Stafford Co and naming children for locations was common, but many think that the fact that Edward named a son Stafford is a clue as to Patience's maiden name. I am not convinced. And (d) I have been working to try to unravel your Thomas Stafford + Swanson marriage and their near ancestors to try to prove that "my" Patience was not their daughter, but there are so many unverified dates, that so far I cannot prove it
1724 __ __ --STAFFORD CO VA
A “List of the Tithables Allowd [sic] to Tend Tobacco and Quantity of Plants in the Precincts between Aquia and Quantico” Creeks in Stafford Co:
Edward GRIMES ... 15,568 plants
Charles GRIMES, age 12
John GRIMES, age 10
This plantation was followed on the list by Roger DAY ... 3,895 plants
Edward’s number of plants was far more than most people on the list, and suggests that he had a large amount of land under cultivation already, even though the survey for his land had only been made in July 1724 and was not actually granted until October 1724.
Note that the ages given here for Charles and John result in years of birth that are roughly 10 or 12 years later than most researchers have estimated. It seems possible, even likely, that Edward has understated their ages to the inspector making this report, probably looking forward to delaying their declaration as 16-year-old tithables as long as possible. But it seems unlikely that he could have fooled the inspector in 1724, no matter how youthful Charles and John may have appeared, if they were as old as they would have been ---in their early 20s--- if they had been born about 1700 or so, which some researchers have speculated. Charles, therefore, may have been older than the 14 declared, for example, but was surely not 24. That leads to a guesstimate of his year of birth at about 1708. Another point worth noting is that William, usually thought to have been Edward’s 2nd son, was not here declared. Was he younger than John, or was he perhaps ill and could not work at that time. Still, since Edward reported Charles and John to be only two years apart in age, one supposed either that William was born after John, or that he was born between Charles and John, placing each of their births only one year apart, or maybe that John did not look as young for his age as Charles did, so that Edward didn’t feel that John would pass for more than two years younger than Charles even though the difference may have been 3 or 4 years.
There is I think only one of Edward abd Patience's children for which a birth date can be proven, and that is for their son Edward whose birth date is not known but he was christened in Dec 1715. Edward is known NOT to be their eldest son (Charles was the eldest surviving son in 1750), and almost certainly their sons John and William were older than Edward Jr, and there were some older daughters too, so it becomes patently impossible that Patience could have been both the mother of those children AND also the daughter of Thomas Stafford and a Swanson wife born in or about 1690.
Patience MAY have been a Stafford, though I am not convinced, but she could not have been a daughter of that couple if the dates are correct. Incidently, at least one other name, which I cannot at this moment recall, has been advanced by some researchers as Patience's maiden name, but that is even more easily shown to be incorrect, for the same general reason that the dates don't work.

Swann which was dated Oct. 12, 1830 after George Graham had died.

Note:
According the the account of Henry Stuart Foote in "Casket of Rememberance" - he stated his grandmother was the 3rd wife of Dr George Graham who was a native of Scotland. After the death of his grandmother, Dr George Graham married Miss Hooe, a sister of Bernard Hooe who was killed by James Kempe in a duel.
If I figure this out correctly, Dr George Graham had 4 wives during his life. Not a file posted to rootweb reflect this.

The excerpted pages begin with description of Bernard Hooe and next the fine daughter of Dr George Graham.

of fine presence, and bore the reputation of being a warmhearted, brave, enterprising, and intelligent young man. He is described to me to have been a deputy sheriff' in the county of Prince William for some years, and to have acquired in that office much popularity. There was in this county at that time a young lady of singular beauty and accomplishments, of the name of Graham. Her education had been well attended to, and all who knew her spoke of her temper and manners in language of the warmest commendation. She was the daughter of Dr. George Graham, a gentleman of rare accomplishments and hiffh reputation in the medical profession. He had been educated at Edinburgh, being himself a native of Scotland, and was reported to be of good birth and affiliations in his native land. This gentleman was the third husband of my venerated grandmother, and often have I sat in his lap in childhood and been the grateful recipient of his more than fatherly attentions. After the decease of my grandmother, Dr. Graham married a Miss Hooe, sister to the Bernard Hooe whom I have already mentioned as having lost his life on the field of honor. When in my twelfth year, I heard the Episcopal funeral service read by my father (there 'being no minister present) over the remains of Dr. Graham on one of the coldest winter days I ever experienced. The grave in which this excellent man lies interred is distant from the celebrated Bull Run battle-field some two or three miles only. A cannon fired by the Federal army might have transported the ball with which it was charged to the very margin of that same grave; which fact I mention particularly for a reason which will presently be obvious. Kemp was a warm admirer of Miss Graham, and made proposals of marriage to her. The young lady was said to have been much attached to him, and to have expressed her willingness to become his wife. Friends interfered who broke off the marriage. Miss Graham was afterward married to Mr. Bird, an old bachelor, and about the wealthiest man in Prince William county. He died in less than a year, and, as soon as decency would allow, Kemp renewed his matrimonial proposals to his former mistress,and was accepted. Bird had devised to his young wife the whole of his estate. After Kemp's marriage with Mrs. Bird he disposed of her property, and removed to the far Southwest. He located in the neighborhood of the city of Natchez, where he became a. wealthy and prosperous cotton-planter. When General Jackson marched to the defense ofNew Orleans he passed through the State of Mississippi. Here General (then Colonel) Hinds joined him, bringing to his aid that celebrated dragoon regiment which distinguished itself so much in the memorable battle which saved " the booty and beauty " of New Orleans from the cruel hands of the spoiler. Kemp commanded one of the finest companies in Hinds' regiment, and participated in all the glory of his illustrious commander, of whom General Jackson said in his famous report of the battle that he rode fearlessly between the two opposing hosts just before the moment of conflict, " the pride of one army and the terror of the other." Kemp returned home and lived only for a few years, leaving a number of children. Among the daughters who sprang from him was a Mrs. Howell, of whom, I am told, Mrs. Jefferson Davis is the daughter. If this be true, (and others perhaps know more of the facts now related than I could possibly do,) why, then, when Jefferson Davis rode over the Bull Run battlefield, on the day after this famous conflict of arms, he was, perhaps without being at all conscious of the fact, within a few hundred, yards of that sequestered forest grave where, thirty years before, I had seen the mortal remains of his wif'e's great grandfather solemnly deposited
