In my landowners of 1815 book I find the following Turners in IOW.
John, Captain, estate
John Jr.
Joseph, son of William
Nancy, part of Willis Turner
Newsom, of Kinchen Turner
Wilea, of Kinchen Turner
Wilea, son of Jesse
William, Junior
William, Jr., son of William, of Willis Turner
Willis, of Nancy Turner

In another book on Smithfield in IOW there is mention of a Kinchen Turner in the Rev. War.
"In Sept 1776, Smithfield's Captain Arthur Smith, stationed at Portsmouth, was having trouble with deserters and sent the following notice to the "Virginia Gazette Newspaper"....Deserted from my Company oif Regulars, in the 4th Battalion of VA Forces...Kinchen Turner, born in IOW, age about 25, 5ft 7in tall, wears his own short hair, which is dark, complection brown, stoops when he walks and wore when he went away a died Hunting Shirt faced with Red, a checked Cotton Shirt, and a pair of trousers. 3 pounds reward.

In IOW deed book:
There is mention of a Matthew in 1776 who bought 100 acres of land in IOW from Exum Westray and wife of Bertie Co NC.

Another mention in 1768 of a William Turner and sons: William, Jeffery and Matthew.

1774...Joshua Turner, Jr., exec of Joshua Turner Sr., decd., and wife Mary Turner to Kinchen Turner...50 acres (being 1/2 of the land formerly belonging to Joshua Turner Sr., decd., adjoining Anthony fulgham, Wm. Woodward, and Matthew Tomlin. (On the web there is reference to Joshua Sr being the father of Kinchen.)

Maybe this will give you a place to turn.
