EDWIN2 CONWAY (Edwin1), "of the County of Lancaster, Gent," b. pro. Eng. cir. 1640-4; d. Aug., 1698; will dat. Mar. 19, 1698; pro. Richmond county, Sep. 7, 1698.*

He m.

  1. (I.) cir. 1675-80, Sarah Fleete, dau. of Lieut. Colonel Henry Fleete, Lancaster county, Va.;
  2. (II.) cir. 1695, Elizabeth Thompson,! pro. of Lanc'r county. These marriages do not appear among the Lancaster marriage bonds.

Children, first marriage:

  1. + 4. i- Edwin,' b. —, I681-2; d. Oct. 3, 1763; m. (I.) —, 1704, Anne Ball; (II.) —, Ann Hack.
  2. 5. ii. Mary, b. Feb. 16, 16S6; d. Sep. 15, 1730, le 44; m. (L) Nov. II, 1703, John Dangerfield; (II.) Apr. 16, 1707, Major James Ball (ball 8, p. 63.)

Children, second marriage:

  1. -(- 6. iii. Francis, b. —, 1697; d. —; m. —, 1720, Rebecca Catlett.
  2. 7. iv. Posthumous child, b. 1698-9.

In 1695, before his 2d mar., Mr. Conway, like,Col. Joseph Ball (p. 57), conveyed his estate in part to his children by his first wife, and moved to Richmond Co. His eldest child, Edwin, was then only 14 years old. It is pro. that the land conveyed came to him by his first wife.

Of the second wife nothing is known beyond'her name. Mr. Warner, Clerk of Rich'd Co., writes me (1890): '* I find nothing touching this 2d mar. No Thompson seems to have lived in this Co. at that time. The Edwin Conway that owned large tracts of land in Rich'd Co. was living in Christ Ch. Parish 1681 and 1694."

Mr. Conway was Surveyor of Lanc'r Co., 1679-80. Like Mary Johnson Ball, we must measure Elizabeth Thompson Conway by her posterity. The one gave to the world a Washington, the other a Madison.
