About Alexander West

Will probated 1-3-1727

The number and identity of his wives is uncertain. Scarburgh West receiving a bequest in the will of Richard Bayly in 1728 is the only evidence for his mother being a daughter of the aforesaid Richard Bayly, and it causes complications. Scarburgh is not explicitly named as a grandson, and other explanations (like being a godson) are possible. None of Alexander West's other children are named or left anything.

First wife's identity is completely unknown, may or may not have been a "Mary". She was certainly the mother of John West.

The mother of Scarburgh West, whether a daughter of Richard Bayly or not, must be presumed to be the mother of the next three children as well.

Alexander West was certainly married to Mary Robinson (widow of William Hurtley) at the time of his death, and equally certainly had no children by her.
