    John Scott [1600.S1.5] received from his father 221 acres that the elder John Scott had patented 16 June 1714.
    John married Amy Goodwyn by 8 May 1721 when Thomas Goodwyn of Southwark Parish, Surry County, gave 150 acres to John Scott Jr. who had married his daughter Amy.
    Amy Scott, administrator, delivered the inventory of John Scott Jr and it was recorded 12 May 1724. Her father gave “4 Negroes, Will, Bess, and her children Harry and Sary” to Amy Scott and her son Thomas Scott 13 October 1724.

    Elizabeth Tanner [3522.1.4.3], the daughter of Lodowick and Frances (Branch) Tanner, married William Osborne Sr. in Amelia County 15 June (bond) 1744. His surety was Richard Booker. Elizabeth and William moved to Amelia County where they reared five children.
    Osborne acquired several tracts in what is now southern Amelia County. He bought 210 acres on the north side of Deep Creek from Peter Irby in November 1751 and 575 acres on Woody Creek of Deep Creek from Edward Thweatt and George Thweatt in October 1762. Five years later, in May 1767, he bought 400 acres on Cellar Creek from Curtis Cates. Robert Munford sold William 600 acres on Little Creek of Deep Creek for £550 in April 1774 and as William Osborne Sr. he gave this land to his son Branch Osborne in February 1783. Just a few years before his death, William bought 63 acres from Peter Ellington.
    In 1782 Amelia County listed William Osborne Sr. head of a household of two with twenty-one slaves. In 1785 still two white souls were in his family.
    William died in Amelia County in 1786 (will dated 22 Oct. 1786 , recorded 25 Jan. 1787) and left his wife the 663 acres where he was then living. Elizabeth died in Amelia County in 1794 (will dated 7 April 1794, recorded 27 Nov. 1794).
    Abner Osborne [3522.1.4.3.1] lived first near his father on Cellar Fork of Deep Creek. Here he bought 290 acres from Joseph Tucker and his wife, Prudence, in 1774 and 200 acres from Thomas Clarke in March 1777. In November 1779 Abner bought 200 acres in Nottoway Parish from John Perkinson and sold the land to Josiah Duncan in September 1780. Godfrey Tucker sold Abner 275 acres there on Winticomack Creek in December 1782. Abner added to his Winticomack Creek plantation with a 236½-acre purchase from William Foster in September 1783. Abner deeded 190 acres on Deep Creek to William Greenhill in October 1785 and the next month sold 524½ acres — the Foster and Tucker land, as resurveyed — to Rice Newman for 25,000 pounds of tobacco. Elizabeth Osborne relinquished her dower right in the latter deed.
    Abner was head of a household of two whites and thirty-six blacks in Amelia County in 1782. The list called him “Capt.” In 1785 three were in his family.
    In June 1793 and 1794 the Nottoway County court recommended to the governor and Council the name of Abner Osborne and two others for the office of county sheriff. In 1800 Amelia County taxed Abner on three horses and eight slaves more than twelve years of age he had in the county. Abner Osborne died in Nottoway County (will dated 1805). He had two farms on the Namozine and West Creeks and owned “Presque Isle” on the James River which he left to his grandson, Abner Osborne Watkins. The remainder of his estate he left to his wife, Elizabeth, and his son-in-law and daughter Conrad Webb and Lucy Osborne.
    This may have been the Abner Osborne who built “Silent Shades” in Nottoway County. This home was later owned by Richard Osborne who served in Co. E, 3rd Virginia Cavalry of the Confederate Army. Richard was an avid fox hunter.
    William Osborne Jr. [3522.1.4.3.2] wed Frances Finney in Amelia County 12 March (bond) 1777. William Osborne married later Ann Sterling.
    William Osborne served during the Revolution from Amelia County and was an ensign in Capt. Thomas Short’s Company.
    William Osborne inherited 570 acres on Woody Creek. In November 1780 William Osborne Jr. bought 58 acres on the north side of Mallorys Creek from Isham Clay. In 1782 William Osborne Jr. was head of a household of six whites and fifteen blacks in Amelia County. The next year, in March 1783, he bought 150 acres in Amelia (now Nottoway) County from John Gray of Wake County, North Carolina. During August 1784 he bought 100 acres from Charles Knight for 5,600 pounds of tobacco. Amelia County enumerated William Osborne Junr. with eleven white souls in 1785.
    William Finney Osborne [3522.1.4.3.2.1] was named in his grandfather’s will of 1786.
    Branch Osborne [3522.1.4.3.3] inherited £50 from Lodowick Tanner and 1,263 acres from his father. He bought 150 acres in Amelia County from James Watkins in June 1782 and his father gave him 600 acres in February 1783. In 1782 Branch was head of a household in Amelia County of four whites and twelve blacks. By 1785 only one white soul was listed in his household.
    According to 1823-records of Nottoway County, a Branch Osborne married Mildred C. Carter, an heir of Raleigh Carter. It was probably this Branch Osborne who had guardian Wiley Jones. In December 1810 Jones mortgaged four slaves in Nottoway County to Osborne who promised to place them with his sister, Jane T. (Osborne) Jones. One Branch Osborne married Maria G. Pride in Amelia County 24 November (bond) 1849.
    Michal Osborne [3522.1.4.3.4] wed Rice Scott. He was the brother of James Scott who married Elizabeth Osborne. Rice was named for his maternal grandfather, Rice Williams. They lived perhaps on the 1,000 acres on both sides of Mountain Creek which Thomas Scott gave his son in November 1768. Prince Edward County divided the estate of Rice Scott in 1796. Michal died in Prince Edward [/1799].
    Edward Scott [3522.1.4.3.4.1].
    Martha Williams Scott [3522.1.4.3.4.2] (2 May 1727) married William Munford.
    Robert Scott [3522.1.4.3.4.3].
    Frances Scott [3522.1.4.3.4.4] (2 Dec. 1721) must have died before her parents.
    Ann Scott [3522.1.4.3.4.5] (2 Dec. 1723) must have died before her parents.
    Elizabeth Archer Osborne [3522.1.4.3.5] (15 June 1755 - 12 Dec. 1781) was named for her maternal great-grandmother, Elizabeth Archer. She married James Scott on 8 February 1773. He was living in Prince Edward County in 1771 when he deeded some slaves to his son, James Scott. Elizabeth’s father, William Osborne Sr., mentioned her in his will of 1786. Nine years later, in 1795, James Scott, on behalf of himself and his children, sued Abner and Branch Osborne, the executors, over their father’s estate. The suit did not mention Elizabeth and she was perhaps dead.
    James died in Prince Edward County (will recorded 17 Feb. 1792).
    Frances Branch Scott [3522.1.4.3.5.1] married a cousin, Capt. Archer Jones, in Amelia County 28 November (bond) 1793. See their family
    After Archer’s death, Frances married Capt. Thomas Epes in Amelia County 1 September 1814. Rev. James Chappell conducted their wedding. Epes, the son of Col. Francis Epes Jr., had previously married Catherine Williams in Amelia County 23 December (bond) 1788. Capt. Thomas Epes built “Poplar Hill” which still stands in Nottoway County. It is on land originally patented to Isham Epes. Thomas Epes was a member of the Virginia House of Delegates representing Nottoway County (1800-02). Thomas’ and Frances’ only son was Richard F. Epes who married Fannie Dunn.
    Agnes Branch Scott [3522.1.4.3.5.2] married Osborne Lockett on 20 February 1801. See their family
    Thomas Scott [3522.1.4.3.5.3].
    William Scott [3522.1.4.3.5.4].
    Elizabeth Archer Scott [3522.1.4.3.5.5] married Paschal Greenhill Leigh 26 November 1800. They were the parents of nine children.
    James Scott [3522.1.4.3.5.6].

    1. Priscilla6 Anderson (James5, Thomas4, Thomas3, Thomas2, Richard1) (Source: James Anderson, 1751 Will of James Anderson, (Will Book 9, Page 772, Surry County, Virginia).) was born Abt. 1728 in "Arnols", Surry, County, Virginia, and died Aft. 1752. She married James Moss Abt. 1744.



    Notes for Priscilla Anderson:

    Priscilla Anderson would have been born of her fathers Surry County Plantation called "Arnols". This was located in what is now the southwest corner of Surry County, Virginia. The grounds for stating that she married a Moss is by process of elimination of the daughters of James. Grant Anderson recalls (1909) that one of James' daughters married a Moss. The Albemarle Parish register provides the Christian name James for her husband.

    The Albemarle Parish register records the birth of Amy, born 09/24/1745, daughter of James Moss and Priscilla, christened 10/27/1745 with godparents Henry Moss, Mary Eppes, and Mary Moss.

    Caution there is another James Moss in Sussex with wife Anne throughout the period 1740 to 1762.

    James and Priscilla probably went south to the Carolinas about 1750 as did many people of the area
