---------------------- -------------------- In Hopewell, Virginia there are two houses which formerly belonged to Francis Eppes: Appomatox Manor and Weston Manor.

Francis acquired the property via a 1635 land grant and it remained in the Eppes family until 1975. Both houses are picturesquely located on the Appomatox River at its confluence with the James and both are now open to the public. -------------------- Francis Epes, married Anne Isham

"Francis3 Epes deposed 1 Aug 1691 that he was aged about 32 years but was probably older since, as administrator of his father’s estate following his death in Aug 1678, he must then have been 21. He was named executor of his step-mother’s estate that same month. From his residence he was known as Francis Epes of Bermuda Hundred. His home, then in Henrico County, fell into Chesterfield County upon its creation in 1749. He was sworn as a justice of the peace for Henrico County , 1 June 1683, was sheriff in 1685 and again in 1686, and by 12 Oct 1688 was referred to as captain. In 1690 he was one of the ‘Commissioners for taking subscriptions towards a College [William and Mary, chartered 1693] to be erected.’ He was Burgess for Henrico County 1691-92, 1693, 1702/3-1705 and 1705-06. On 6 April 1700 he was again appointed sheriff of Henrico County and was appointed twice more on 27 April 1710 and 27 April 1711.

"He received numerous grants of land in Henrico County and on 24 Oct 1701, with his half-brothers William and Littelbury Epes, received 1,000 acres in Charles City (later Prince George) County on the south side of Warwick Swamp and the north side of Joseph Swamp, due for the transportation of twenty persons. On 24 April 1703 a grant of 4,000 acres in Henrico County was issued to Capt. Francis Epes, Mr. Isham Epes, Mr. Francis Epes, Jr., Mr. George Robinson, Minister, Mrs. Elizabeth Kennon, Mr. Phillip Jones, Mrs. Martha Stratton, Mr. George Archer and Mr. James Hill for the transportation of 80 persons, including a Francis Epes. This suggests that Francis3 had been to England and back. In 1704 he owned 226 acres in Prince George County and 2,145 acres in Henrico County. On 28 April 1711 he, Joseph Royall and George Archer petitioned that they with Mr. Richard Kennon had in 1690 entered 2827 acres in Henrico County but Governor Francis Nicholson had refused them a patent because the land lay beyond the limits he had set. Their rights were lost when the State House burned but they had obtained new rights for the same land. The Council resolved that no patent could be granted for this land until the Queen’s pleasure was known. He was frequently mentioned in the diary of William Byrd as Col. Frank Epes, and as Col. Francis Epes had land in Henrico County surveyed by Mr. Francis4 Epes, surveyor, 8 Feb 1709/10. On 26 April 1712 Col. Francis Epes, Mr. John Bolling and Mr. Richard Cocke were appointed to hear and determine the differences between the inhabitants at Manakintown about the division and proportioning of land.

"His will, no longer extant, was dated 2 Oct 1719 and it was presented for probate, 6 June 1720 by Francis Epes, his executor. He and his brother-in-law William Randolph (who married Mary Isham) were trustees of Bermuda Hundred Town and on 2 Feb 1719/20, on motion of William Randolph, surviving trustee for the town, Francis4 Epes was appointed trustee in the stead of his father, deceased.

"He married Anne Isham, daughter of Col. Henry Isham and his wife Katherine (Banks) Royall, some time between 23 Sep 1678 when Anne Isham was a witness to the will of Mrs. Elizabeth (_____) Worsham Epes and 20 Feb 1681/2 when, as Anne Eppes, she gave power of attorney to William Epes..."

Francis Eppes III was born in 1659, the son of Francis Eppes II and his first wife her name is unknown. He married Anne Isham, the younger dau. of two dau. of Capt. Henry and Katherine (Banks) Isham. Their children were Francis Eppes IV, Isham Eppes, William Eppes, Anne (Eppes) Kennon, Elizabeth Eppes, Sarah Eppes, Mary Eppes. He died about Jan. 1718-1720.
