In 1740 and 1742, John Price of Henrico Co bought land of Robert Willis of Goochland on Tuckahoe Creek. After 1748, deeds state John Price lived in Goochland Co. The last record is a deed of gift to son William on 21 Nov 1749.

John Price died before 1751. No will or administration of an estate has been found; it's likely he had deeded everything to his children before his death. A deed from his son Daniel to John Bibb in Goochland Co on 20 Aug 1751 includes a dower release from Hannah Price, relict of John Price, dec'd. Mary, Daniel's wife also relinquished her dower rights. This deed was for the 220 acres John Price had sold to Daniel in 1748.

Henrico DB 1750-1774
p.189 15 Aug 1762 Daniel Price and Mary his wife, of Lunenburg Co, and John Price and Hannah his wife, of Henrico [Daniel's parents] to Thomas Williamson of Henrico for 150£, 100 acres on south side of the Brook at the mouth of Timber Branch adj. Jacob Smith, John Price, William Snead & Nathaniel Bridgwater. Signed: Daniel Price, Mary Price, John (X) Price, Hannah (X) Price. Wit: Jonathan Patterson, Harwood Bacon, Benjamin Estes, David Allen, William (W) Jones, Samuel Williamson. Rec. 7 Mar 1763.
[Would seem that this is the only John Price/Hannah couple. Yet John Price was likely deceased. Daniel Price, son of John & Hannah, is the only Daniel Price known to be in Lunenburg Co at this time. John Price, husband of Hannah, made a distinctive mark for his name - I'd like to see a copy of the original. The younger John Price, brother to Daniel is believed to be married to a Sarah but it's possible he's been identified incorrectly.]

John PRICE and Hannah WILLIAMSON were married about 1715.11,12 Hannah WILLIAMSON, daughter of THOMAS WILLIAMSON and SUSANNAH CARTER, was born about 1698 in Henrico County, Virginia.11

John PRICE and Hannah WILLIAMSON had the following children:

Mary PRICE12,24 was born (date unknown).

Proof that John and Hannah had a daughter Mary is circumstantial. It's possible she was the wife of Robert Willis.

Robert Willis of the Parish of St James in Goochland Co VA sold 200 acres in Goochland to John Price of Henrico on 15 Dec 1740; it was on a branch of Tuckahoe Creek where Robert Willis then lived, bounded by a corner of Price's own Land. The deed was witnessed by Wm Street, Daniel Price & Major Willis [Goochland DB 3, p.382. This may have been 300 acres as that was what was stated in the dower release of Mary in Oct of 1742]

19 Oct 1742, Robert Willis of St. James in Goochland sold 350 acres to John Price of the same Parish. The land was in the same location - on the north branch of Tuckahoe and part of the tract where Robert Willis lived. Mary Willis, wife of Robert, relinquished her dower rights to this tract and also to 300 acres which Robert Willis had sold to John Price some time before. Wit: John McBride, Pleasants Cocke, M. Cadet Young. [Goochland DB 4, p.82]
[This makes probably 650 acres of Willis' original 750 tract. John Price sold 220 acres to his son Daniel, gave 100 acres to son-in-law Samuel Shepherd & his wife Elizabeth, and deeded 330 acres to son William after John & Hannah's decease - this makes up the 650 acres.]

Other deeds of gift to John's son Daniel and daughter Elizabeth Shepherd, also give John Price's residence as being Goochland.

On 14 Nov 1748, Robert Willis of Henrico Co sold John Lipscomb of Caroline Co 400 acres in Henrico. Land was located on Jordan's Branch and was the land John Price GAVE to Robert Willis, bounded by John Williamson & Colonel Byrd. Wit: Thomas Harlow, Thomas Hughes, Wm Kelley. [Henrico Deeds]
[As John Price made deeds of gifts of land to other of his children, it would appear he had also given land to Robert Willis and his wife Mary. No such deed has yet been found.]

Elizabeth PRICE24 was born (date unknown).

John Price of Goochland deeded his son-in-law, Samuel Shepherd and well beloved daughter Elizabeth Shepherd, 100 acres in Goochland Co 18 Jul 1748. This was a deed of gift. The land was on a branch of the Tuckahoe and part of the tract where John Price lived which he had bought from Robert Willis. This gift was made on the same day as a gift to Daniel, son of John Price. [Goochland DB 5, p.448]
