MARY | 1713 | Prince George | "Seventeenth Century Colonial Ancestors" -- Nicholas Lanier (1690-1779, Brunswick Co VA) married ca 1713, in Prince George Co. MARY Nance. To the same effect, Becky Smith Gallops , as well as the "Gene Pool" database at ancestry.com, which says: William Lanier b. 1720 in Prince George Co, VA son of Nicholas Lanier and Mary Nance ... Another source, however, says that Nicholas Lanier's wife was Mary Sheperd. (per Judy Gabor ). A 1746 Indenture by Nicholas Lanier of Brunswick, mentioned "welbeloved son, Nicholas Shepherd Lanier" Deed Book 3, Page 250. 1770 Brunswick Co. Will of William Nance identifies daughter Mary Lanier, but (according to NR) this was Mary Nance who had m. Frederick Lanier. But, in 1747, this Nicholas Lanier's wife WAS named Mary, and in 1748, this William Nance was neighbors in Brunswick Co w. Sampson Lanier, Thomas "Lanoir", and Nicholas Lanier. The 1717 Will of John Lanier of Prince George Co. mentioned children Robert, John, Sampson, Sarah (Brewer), and Nicholas, and grandson John, son of son Nicholas. A database I found through GenWeb says that Nicholas Lanier, b. 1690 Charles City Co VA to John and Sarah Lanier, had children John (b.1715), William (b.1720), Thomas (b.1722), Clement (b.1737 - sic), and Nicholas Shepherd (b.1717), and married Mary Shepard (sic) abt. 1720. All children are shown as b. to Mary Shepard, but note the discrepancy re dates. Also, it was not traditional to name children with mother's surname; more typical, was use of surname of father's mother.
