“Francis married Anne Washington, daughter of Col. John Washington and Anne Pope.  Anne was born 1662 in Westmoreland Co., VA; died Mar 1697 at Great House Point, Westmoreland Co., VA.  She is buried in the Bridges Creek Washington Family cemetery.    Her brother Lawrence was the Grandfather of our 1st President George Washington.    She was left her mother's rings, in her father's will.    The long intimate friendship between the Wrights and Washington’s suffered a mutual loss in the death of Capt. Lawrence Washington in March, 1698, whose will, naming his deceased sister Anne and her husband Francis Wright, conveys an esteemed impression of the social and intellectual position and material independence of these allied families. The Washington’s at this time resided along Pope's and Mattox (Appomatox) creeks in the northern part of Westmoreland near where the national memorial to the family:

Montross, Westmoreland County, Virginia Deeds & Wills No. 2 pg. 133, etc: "Item I give and bequeath to my sister Anne Wright's children, one man Servant a piece of four or five years to serve or Three Thousand pounds of Tobacco to purchase the same, to be delivered or paid to them when they arrive to the age of twenty years old Item I give that land which I bought of my Brother Francis Wright, being 200 acres lying near Storke's Quarter, to my son John Washington (etc) 11th day of March, Anno Dom. 1697-8."

Anne (Washington) Wright had died before the date of his will, March 11, 1697-8, hence no bequest to her, and hence the reference of the testator to being buried by the side of my Father and Mother & neare my Brother and Sisters, in the family burying ground on the original Washington estate near Pope's Creek in Washington parish, Westmoreland, where now stands the tall granite shaft erected by an act of Congress.

The death of Anne (Washington) Wright, when aged under thirty-eight, is also established in the deed of sale, executed by her only son John Wright and his father, of land she had inherited from her father Col. John Washington. (Montross, Westmoreland county, Virginia. Book entitled Deeds & Wills No. 4 Page. 175)

Francis & Anne Washington married between 1680 or 1682.    Their only son, John, was born 25 Feb 1685/1687 in Westmoreland Co., VA.     

Anne Wright was the child of Francis’s 2nd wife, Martha Cox, whom he married about 1709.   Richard Wright was also the child of Martha and Francis.  

Francis Wright died, in June 1713, age 53, and was buried in his own estate at Lower Machodoc in an enclosure (doubtless near the "great house") perpetually to be reserved to the Wright descendants.   The real estate fell to the elder son, John, under the law of primo-geniture, John being, as well, the sole heir male to the landed estate of his mother, Anne Washington Wright. “

Frederick Stier was apparently born in Rockingham Co., NC. His father, Daniel Stier, moved to Rockingham Co., NC sometime before 1800 and is listed in the 1800 census. Fredrick Stier appears in every census from 1830 to 1880. He died in 1885 at the age of 85.

Fredrick Stier married Elizabeth Cunningham about January 15, 1827. They are listed together in the 1850 census. Frederick and Elizabeth appear to have seprated prior to the 1860 census.



Note: The female in the 10 to 15 age group is likely Martha Stier, who was born about 1826 and married Thomas Combs in 1850. The older female is his wife Elizabeth Cunningham. The 5 to 10 male would be John N. Stier. The 15 to 20 males could be William Stiers who appears in the 1860 census and Bedford Stires who appears in the 1850 census.

“JOHN WRIGHT (1685/87 Westmoreland Co., VA - 1730 Prince William Co., VA), son of Francis Wright, was proven by Hoppin, without question, to be a son of Anne Washington.    Quotes from "The Washington-Wright Connection" by Charles Arthur Hoppin, state:     "JOHN WRIGHT, though gentle born and gently reared.... seems from the records like a man who to himself said, "Le me be no assistant for a state, but keep a farm."    "John Wright was a better sportsman than farmer or merchant and more pleased with entertaining than in advancing his political or private fortunes.  That his inheritance was sufficient unto his needs scarcely can be gainsaid.  he bought but little land, and sold a large amount.  Eventually he sold out entirely and removed to another part of Virginia; not to his own personal enhancement but, most fortunately, to the ultimate advantage of his children, especially to his long-lived second son, John.   John Wright, however, neglected no public duty and, as was to be expected, succeeded his father as attorney, sheriff's deputy, surveyor, vestryman and judge; and he is always of record as a "gentleman", maintaining his excellent social position.  John moved (1723) to the newer settlement in the present Price William county, as a pioneer, where one can scarcely doubt he was a first justice and sat at the first court held therefor.  "He passed the short remainder of his life in the quiet comfort and enjoyment of his own estate, possessed of fund ample to the indulging of his own social pleasure and for the education and preferment of his two known sons, Francis (who died young)and John, whose long and honorable career confirmed the wisdom and garnered the resulting opportunities of his father's removal from Westmoreland.    His second son, John, far surpassed him in record as a public man. “

John Wright married Dorothy (last name unknown).    Although Hoppin hypothesized a surname Awbrey for her, this has since been disproved.  (Parenthetically,  Hoppin  also attributed to Anne Washington a daughter Anne Wright, wife of Gerrard Davis, although this lady actually was the daughter of Francis Wright’s second wife; the husband, Gerrard Davis, can be proved to have been born after 1706.)   The wife of John Wright was a Dorothy, but was not Dorothy (Awbrey) Wright. Dorothy Awbrey was the wife of John  Billups.

I am only familiar with two children of John and Dorothy:

1)  Francis Wright    (1703-- Abt 1741/1742)   (eldest son, died a fairly young man)
2)  John Wright (II)  (1706/1707- 27 Feb 1792)”

He is named in his father's will. Sept. 21, 1779, (Order Book 4, pg 257)

Jesse Mustain with John Oliver & Richard Todd his securites...acknowledged themselves severally indebted to the Commonwealth of VA...Jesse Mustain in the sum of 500 lbs....on conditionthat the said Jesse Mustain shall be of good behaviour and keep the peace towards all citizens of this Commonwealth 1 whole year and a day.

Jesse's name appears in the Court Order Books of PittsylvaniaCo., VA. Moses Hart owed him 2 pounds (5:419); William Gregory owed him4 pounds (6:21).

In July 1796, it was ordered that overseers of the poor of Camden Parish bind out James Mustain, a child of Jesse Mustaine, dec'd.(8:226).

At the August Court, 1797, "Thomas Mustain was appointed guardian of John, Jesse, James, Priscilla, Winifred, Susanna, and Tabitha Mustain, orphans of Jesse Mustain, dec'd. Whereupon the said Thomas Mustain together with David Pannill his security entered into Bond according to law." (8:376).

In the BRITISH MERCANTILE CLAIMES 1775-1803, "Jesse Mustain L6.8/11 signed settlement Pittsylvania store. He died several years since and left sufficient estate. David Pannel is his administrator."

In the October Court, 1782, "Thomas Doss and Salley, his wife,against Jesse Mustain. In Trespass, assult and battery. The parties having agreed..dismissed.

He is in the 1790 census for Pittsylvania Co., VA. His widow, Mary appears in the 1800 census.

Jesse Mustain did not leave a will. There is an inventory o fhis estate, dated Feb. 19, 1798. This document is in Pittsylvania Co.,VA. The commissioners were: Crispin Shelton, Vincent Shelton, GriffithDickenson.

In the book 18TH CENTURY LANDMARKS OF PITTSYLVANIA CO., VA:STAUNTON RIVER DISTRICT, page 72, Madaline Vaden Fitzgerald and Frances Hallam Hurt, it mentioned that Thomas Mustain willed to his son Jesse,the 200 acres farm George II in 1756. It is thought that Jesse started to build his home there including the dower of Mary Mustain. (D & W 11,page 216).

In 1803 Avery Mustain, brother of Jesse, and guardian of theorphans, sold the property to Benjamin Gosney for 11L, 11 shillings,current money of VA (DB 13, page 362).

At the August Court 1797 (8:377), "Jeremiah Barker and Anna his wife complains against Thomas Mustain as well on behalf of himself as guardian of Jesse Mustain, John Mustain, James Mustain, Priscilla Mustain, Winifred Mustain, Susanna Mustain, and Tabitha Mustain, Heirs atlaw of Jesse Mustain dec'd..that Avery Mustain, Zachariah Lewis and Griffith Dickinson do advertize and see the land whereof the said JesseMustain died." Why Jeremiah Barker and Anna his wife made this complaintis not known.

At a further trial of this suit on Jan. 1798 it is noted that on Dec. 17, 1797, Mr. Benjamin Gosney became the purchaser of the land.
June 16, 1794, it was ordered that Mary Mustain, widow and relict of Jesse Mustain dec'd be summoned to show cause why she will not take the administration of the estate of the said Jesse Mustain. On July26, 1794, the administration of the estate was given to David Pannill who gave bond with Avery Mustain, Joel Shelton, and Robert Bruce as his securities (7:385).

Henningham Kannon is listed in the 1800 census for Stokes Co. NC. 1800 Census Stokes County North Carolina, Roll 32, p. 559. Her household includes 3 males under 10, 1 female 10-15, and 1 female 26-45. Based on her age given in the 1800 census in Stokes Co., NC, Henningham was born between 1755 and 1774.

Following Benjamin’s death, Henningham continued to live in Stokes Co. In 1805, she deeded her one-third share of Benjamin Cannon’s land to Joseph Smith. In 1809, Henningham Cannon and Caty Melvin, daughter of Benjamin Cannon conveyed a one-third share of Benjamin Cannon’s land to Daniel Smith and his wife Molly, who was also a daughter “one of the legatees” of Benjamin Cannon. The deed refers to a contract between Henningham Cannon and the legatees of Benjamin Cannon. Apparently, Henningham and the children of Benjamin Cannon made an agreement regarding the division of the land and the deed was pursuant to the agreement. The date of the agreement is not given and no details of the agreement are stated in the deed. The number and names of the children are not given, other than Caty and Molly. It is possible that the children of Benjamin Cannon who moved to Tennesse gave up claims to any land in Stokes Co. in exchange for payment.






Note that George Carrington, who conveyed property to Benjamain Cannon in Cumberland Co. also had a daughter named Henningham who married John Bernard in Cumberland Co. VA on 30 July 1767.
