In 1710 New Kent co VA, William Walker deeds to his son Sylvanus, land which was left to Sylvanus by Francis Warren.
Let's suppose that Sylvanus is indeed the grandson of Francis Warren.
It seems to me, that if there were another son, Francis Walker, in this family, that Francis Warren would likely have included him instead of (or in addition to) Sylvanus.
William Walker, though, does not leave us any mention of a son Francis (or any other heirs of Francis Warren).
Besides this, I haven't seen any evidence which places any Francis Walker in this family.
Naming conventions of the day might suggest that there was indeed a son, William Walker (brother of Sylvanus).
But remember, there is no document which shows this.
I'll suppose that this person indeed existed.
Two candidates have been suggested:
1) William Walker - m: Elizabeth Clopton; d 1718 (or 1717), New Kent co VA
2) William Walker - m: Judith ___; d 1752, Cumberland co VA
Sylvanus Walker was having children in New Kent co VA, 1714-1718.
1) William Walker was having children in New Kent co VA, 1714-1716.
2) William Walker was having children, ~1727-1746
(see message #29270)
Which of these would more likely be the brother of Sylvanus?
Someone might say, "But William Walker (1752, Cumberland co) named a son "Warren". He MUST be a grandson of Francis Warren."
Not necessarily. I agree, Warren Walker is likely a descendent of Francis Warren (or perhaps another Warren).
But, what do we know about the family of Francis Warren?
And, how many times have we seen sisters from one family marry brothers (or cousins) from another family?
(Say, daughters of Francis Warren, marrying Walker cousins?)
(This is theory, not statement of fact.)
