Re: Cornelius & William Sale - Essex Co.

In Reply to: Cornelius & William Sale - Essex Co. by Barry Wood of 1031

In Colonial Caroline by T.E. Campbell, there is a list of decedants and their executors or administrators. In 1744, William Sale was listed as decedent; and Hannah Sale was listed as executrix. In 1763, Anthony Sale was listed as decedent; and Robert Sale was listed as executor. In 1770, James Sale was listed as decedent; and John Broaddus, William Hoard, Benjamin Snead and John Spindle were listed as executors. In the same year Robert Sale was listed as decedent; and John Broaddus, Benjamin Snead and John Spindle were listed as executors. In 1772, James Sale was listed as decedent; and Thomas Lowry was listed as executor.

In the same book there was a list of Guardians and Wards in Colonial Caroline. In 1752, William Sale was the guardian of James Sale and Giles Samuel was the guardian of Mary Sale. In 1764, William Hoard was the guardian of Samuel Sale (Anthony). In 1774, William Dunn was the guardian of Mary Sale (James).

It would seem that some of the Sales whom you are tracking actually lived in Caroline County, probably on land that had once been in Essex or King and Queen County. It has been accepted that Thomas Sale of Essex County married Mollie, the daughter of Robert and Phoebe (?Latane) Brooke of "Farmer's Hall". Could this marriage explain the origin of the names Humphrey, Lewis and Robert in the Sale Family of Caroline County.

I am a descendant of Robert Sale of Caroline County, who married Ann Broaddus in 1794 and, after her death, her sister Sally Broaddus. For a long time, I have been trying to figure out how all of these Sales were related and would appreciate any help in this regard.
