About Elizabeth Ball

Joseph Ball (1649-1711) was born in England and came to Virginia sometime before his father's death, making his home at a plantation called Epping Forest. He served as a justice of the county court, a vestryman for his church parish, as a Burgess (in 1698, 1700, and 1702), and as a lieutenant colonel in the county militia.

Ball was married twice.

From his first marriage to Elizabeth Rogers (or Romney), who died by the early 1700's, he had five children:

  1. Anne Ball (later the wife of Colonel Edwin Conway),
  2. Elizabeth Ball (later the wife of the Reverend Joseph Carnegie)
  3. Esther or Easter Ball (later the wife of Rawleigh Chinn),
  4. Hannah Ball (later the wife of Rawleigh Travers, II, and afterwards the wife of Simon Pearson), and
  5. Joseph Ball (died 1760).
