    FRANCIS EPPES, II, was Justice of Charles City, 1658, Captain of the
    Guard and of Horse of the area served by Bristol Parish, was living in
    Henrico County, Virginia, by 1669, served as Justice there, and was
    granted 927 acres, of record, 1673. he died, 1678, of a wound, having
    made a deposition that year reciting he was 50 years of age. Before his
    death he made a nuncupative will dividing his estate, and designating his
    son Francis executor, to which will William Randolph and Richard Cocke
    Sr. were witnesses.

    During his lifetime he carried on a mercantile business at Bermuda
    Hundred, and was agent for a London Firm.

    From the Henrico records it appears that Colonel Eppes died from a wound.
    On December 2, 1678 Richard Cocke, Sr., aged about 38, deposed that he
    was at the house of Colonel Francis Eppes the day
    before he died, ad Col. Eppes said he wished his estate divided equally
    between his wife and four children. And on the same day Wm Randolph, aged
    about 28, deposed that he was at the house of Col. Francis Eppes a few
    days before he died, and said Eppes, being dangerously wounded, called
    him, and desired him to take notice that he wished his estate to be
    equally devided between his wife and four children, and when his wife
    asked about his land, he said he hoped his brother would seat one of them
    (the sons) at Causons, and that Lanctons would serve one of the boys. His
    son Francis was his administrator and among his accounts with the estate
    are payments to Parson Williams and Parsin Ball doubtless for the funeral
    services.


    Francis Eppes gave deposition, in 1677, that he was aged 49. He and his
    second wife, Elizabeth, were then living at Bermuda Hundred in the upper
    parts of the James River.
