About Hester Farmer

Researcher Kevin Wynn Biggs gave the names of those he believes are Hester's parents, and believes her maiden name is "Branch" rather than "Bass".


Bass was her first husband's name, not her maiden name. p. 78 of Orphans Court book 1677-1739 of Henrico Co. Va. by Pauline Pearce Warner; 1963; p. 39 of original Orphans Court book-- “At an Orphans Court held at Varina for the County of Henrico the 20th day of August 1696 in the yeare of the Reign of Wm. the 3rd....1696 it is ordered that Henry Farmer who maryed the Executrix of William Bass late of this County decd be sumoned to the next court to give se’ty for the probate of the Decd will.”
