    On the Pettypool site states that Richard is son Hezekiah. This mistake for Richard is Hezekiah brother not son

    Anne[ Pettypool] married Richard Massey , son of Hezekiah and Elizabeth Massey of Brunswick County, Virginia. The births of several children were recorded in the Bristol Parish Vestry Book: Ann (born 1722), Sarah (born 1723), the twins John and Richard (born 14 February 1725/6), and Tabitha (born 1729) (5). Daughter Anne must have died prior to 1739 since she was not named in the will of Richard, viz. children: William, (H)Ezekiah, John, Richard, Martha, Sarah, and Tabitha (6).

    Richard and Anne Massey purchased 126 acres of land on Monk's Neck Creek from John, Joseph and Sarah Stroud in 1724 (7) which they sold in 1727 (8). Two of their children, William and Martha, had inherited land on Monk's Neck Creek from their grandfather, William[2] Pettypool, in 1726.

    In c1730 Richard and Anne Pettypool Massey lived on Beaverpond Creek, Brunswick County, Virginia in present day Greensville County, the home place of Richard's father, Hezekiah. Seth Pettypool[3], Ann Massey's brother, also lived for a time (c1735-43) in Brunswick County near his recently widowed sister (9). Anne Pettypool Massey died in 1770 in Greensville County, Virginia and named surviving children John, Richard, William, and Hezekiah Massey, Martha Moore, Tabitha Massey and Sarah Jones in her will (10). Much information on descendants of this family is available (11
