Change Date: 17 FEB 2013
In 1989, Don Wilson, Virginiana Librarian (he?s still here and head of this room), wrote a response to Margaret M. Clemens of Amherst, VA who was inquiring about Willoughby?s lived in PWC around 1760 in the community of Hopewell (When Fauquier County broke off from Prince William in 1759, Hopewell became part of Fauquier). She was looking for the marriage of Evan Griffith to Sarah Willoughby about 1758. That letter is in our file. At that time, Mr. Wilson found an abstract of the will of Evan Griffith in Fauquier County, dated 1795. He is described as a resident of Leeds Parish, an area that would have included Hopewell. While looking he also found a John Willoughby whose estate was inventoried in 1782.
