In Reply to: SATTERFIELD, Amos -- wit 1784 will of John MARSHAL of Warren Co NC by Winnie Gilreath Westbury of 2028

I found the reference to the estate papers of John Marshall. It indicated that: "An entry on the estate papers show that on October, 10, 1788 Amos Satterfield was paid for traveling 70 miles to prove the will." I assume that 70 miles was the total distance that he traveled, which would mean that he traveled 35 miles in each direction. This would be about the distance to where James Satterfield, Sr. was at in Newberry County. Another reference indicated that: "In her book John Marshall, Sr by Alienne W. Turner, John Marshall wife is identified as Tabitha Dixon and that it was based on a deed in Brunswick County, Virginia." We know that there was a connection between the Satterfields in Maryland and the Dixons so this is likely the Marshall/Satterfield connection."

I have seen some Satterfield religion references but I don't recall seeing one for Amos or Bedwell. I do know that when the Satterfields came to Maryland they were Catholic. Since Maryland was established as a Catholic santuary, it is quite possible that the first Satterfield came to the Colonies due to the Protestant Reformation. We do know that, because of Furness Abbey, the Satterthwaite area was Catholic. Whether or not the Satterfields switched after they left Satterthwaite and assumed the Satterfield name is unknown.
