In Reply to: Re: George Mason b. 1690 VA., m. Sarah ? by William Groth of 5497


You want even more confusion? Since I wrote that, I have discovered a third Mason family in Stafford--and the matriarch of that family was a Frances. A Frances Mason (first husband unknown--may have been Richard) married William Wentworth Matheny--and in his 1705 will Matheny left 100 acres to William Mason, his stepson. Wm. was probably born about 1690. He remained in Stafford. The George Mason of Aquia I mentioned last time did not--he moved to Prince William Co. ca. 1727 and died there ca. 1729. His widow, Anaple Wigginton, married William Butler and continued to live in Prince William. I don't know that George Mason of Aquia and Anaple had daughters, but I think their sons were George, William and Benjamin. George and William were in Prince William Co. Benjamin moved to Loudoun--and so later, did the children of George (I think Benjamin, William, Anaple and Susannah).


William Mason's 100 acres was next to the Hope Patent south of Aquia Creek. He died in 1745. No will, but a property statement which includes both John Mason and James Jones as debtors. I suspect this James Jones was the husband of Frances Mason and that she was the daughter of William Mason (wife unknown--Jane Mason was his spouse when he died, but...). In 1756, John Mason, married to Mary Nelson, was living on 100 acres south of Aquia Creek--looking very much like a son of William Mason. If you're familiar with the Overwharton Parish records, most of those Masons are children of John Mason and probably brothers and sister--Daniel, George, Frances. George married Eliz. Duwest--they had a daughter Frances--so the name runs in the family. Later John Mason moved west and north of Aquia Creek, very close to Daniel Mason who leased land at the juncture of Aquia Creek and Cannon Run. In the 1780s, their taxes were often taken the same day--along with a third Mason, Richard, who may have been a younger brother of John, Daniel, George.


If I were a betting person, I'd put my money on that William Mason south of Aquia to be the father of Frances Mason Jones, particularly as the name James Jones shows up in William's estate settlement!
