Thanks for your message. Yes, I have the same information that you posted. My ancestor was James Browning married to Ann Williamson, listed in your notes. I have basically searched the Browning line but did find some information on the Williamson's. At this point have not put it all in prespective to my line. FHC Microfilm 0031780, Va records 1701-1843 lists a will dtd 13 Sep 1778 mentions Mary Williamson wife of Samuel Williamson, dau. of ______ Young and Judth Young. If Mary dies first then the estate is to be divided between nephew George Dabney and niece Mary Walker. Thomas Williamson witness or exec. of estate. Henrico Co., VA wills:
John B. Williamson, dtd Jul 1838 mentions children: Martha, John, Archelaus, James H., Augustus. Division of John Williamson,the younger, to Frances Williamson, Sarah Crenshaw, Mary Williamson, Rebecca Williamson, John WIlliamson, Thomas Williamson, dtd 26 Dec 1764, Thomas Williamson signed. Oct. 1761, Thomas Williamson, orphan of John Williamson, appointed Samuel Williamson as his guardian. Aug 1762,court apptd.

Feb. 1765, Mary Williamson orphan of John Williamson, chooses Graves Harding, her guardian (some months later they were married). Jul 1762, will of John Williamson presented to court by Robert and Samuel Williamson, Exec. Aor 1764, Petition of Judith Williamson, widow of JohnWilliamson for her dower in the lands of the deceased, referred to the next court.
Oct. 1767, Robert and Samuel Williamson, exec. of John Williamson, Sr., and John Williamson, Jr. are to produce the persons ordered to settle the estate and return to Dec. court. 179l, John P. and Sarah Williamson sell land to Samuel Browning, 46 acres for 65 pounds on Trumpet Branch near Samuel Williamson and Nathl. Wilkinson. Indenture 4 Apr 1791. Witnesses: Wm. Morris, Daniel Browning and James Eubank. Nov 1764, lawsuit, FHC FIsche 605l009. John Williamson, son and heir of John WIlliamson, the younger, deceased, by his next friend vs Thomas, Rebecca, Frances, Mary and Sarah Williamson, orphans of John Williamson, the younger, dec'd. by Samuel Williamson, their guardain. The court decrees that the executors of the deceased's land make accounting of estate and also estate of John WIlliamson, the elder, dece'd and divide the estate of John WIlliamson, the younger, among his children according to his will.Failed to copy date but John Thorpe a neighbor was paid to make coffin for a John Williamson. Oct. 1764, Elizabeth Bacon, orphan of Langston Bacon chooses Allen Williamson as her guardian. According to a Henrico Co. history book, John, Samuel and Allen Williamson and others bought land in 1787 on Brook Rd. to build a school house. Same book also lists following as serving in Rev. War, Allen, John, Samuel, Susannah and Thomas WIlliamson. Also states That Thomas Williamson, probably John's father, has a plantation on Brook Road in 1737. It was located near the lands of Samuel and John Williamson. 1742, will of Thomas Willamson presented to court by John Williamson. Exec. Cuthbert and Richard Williamson. Apr 1705, Henrico Co. Rent rolls, a Thomas Williamson was listed. Hope this helps. If you know exactly where you connect with the Williamson's I have some other records from Henrico Co., VA that may be of help to you. Good luck.
