In the name of God Amen. I, Elizabeth Macon of the Parish of Saint John, in the county of King William, widow, being sick and weak in body, but of sound mind and memory, do make this my last Will and Testament in manner and form following, hereby revoking all wills by me heretofore made. I first desire, that all my just debts be paid. I give to my grandson, Philip Aylett, son of my daughter, Mary Aylett, one negro boy named Beverley to him and his heirs forever. I give to my granddaughter, Elizabeth Aylett(1), one negro girl named Charity, together with her future increase to her and her heirs forever; which two negroes are now in possession of Mr. Wm. Aylett. I also give my said granddaughter, Elizabeth Aylett, a bed and furniture, that was a blue and white Virginia cloth tick. I give and devise to my granddaughter Anne Claiborne my four negro girls named Rose, Temperance, Patty and Mourning, and my negro boy named Burwell, children of Lydia; also my negro man named George, his wife Doll and his five children, named Gowing, Judy, Burnet, Jenny and Anna, together with their future increase to her and her heirs forever.

All the rest and residue of my estate real and personal of what nature and kind soever, including the negroes lent to my son-in-law William Aylett and now in his possession, I give and devise to be equally divided between my daughter Mary Aylett and my grand-daughter Anne Claiborne to them and their heirs forever; but I further will and devise, and my true intent and ________________________________________________________ (1)Grandmother of Charles Campbell.

NOTE.

In 1858 Mrs. Mildred Campbell, the mother of Charles Campbell, the Virgnian Historian, and I examined the papers of our common ancestor, Colonel Willam Aylett, of "Fairfield", King William county, Va. Col. Aylett represented his county in the House of Burgesses from Feb. 10th, 1772 to May 26, 1774, and was a member of the celebrated Convention, which met in Williamsburg, in May, 1776. On the 22nd of that month, he resigned his seat, to accept the Commission of "Deputy Commissary General of the Forces in Virginia". He was promoted, and died, when about thirty-eight year old, in the service of the United States, as "Deputy Commissary General of the Southern Department". He was taken suddenly sick in Yorktown, and made his will the 12th of April, 1780; and died that day or the next.

Mrs. Campbell and I found among Col. Aylett's papers a packet containing the above will of Mrs. Macon, the will of her father, Col. Augustine Moore, of "Chelsea", and a memorandum in the handwriting of Col. Aylett, which reads thus: "Collo. Augustine moore of Chelsea was the son of a sister of Basil, the son of Thomas Moore who married a daughter of Sir Basil Brooke". _______________________________________________________ (1)Bartholomew Dandridge m. 1st Elizabeth Macon, eldest child of Col. James and Elizabeth Macon. Col. Augustine Moore mentions in his will, dated 20th January, 1742, his grand- daughter Elizabeth Macon. Dandridge married 2nd Mary, daughter of Julius King Burbidge. QUARTERLY V., p. 36, VI., 250. His daughter Anne by the first marriage married William Dandridge Claiborne.
