About Honorable John Williamson Page

Birth: Feb. 20, 1724 Rosewell Gloucester County Virginia, USA Death: Oct., 1774 Mansfield Hall Spotsylvania County Virginia, USA

John Page died "On Saturday morning last" at Mansfield near Fredericksburg, Virginia at the home of Mann Page. [Source: Virginia Gazette, Pickney. October 6, 1774. p. 3 col. 2]

According to Governor Page's letter, extracts from which may be seen in Bishop Meade, op. at., Vol. I., p. 147, note, he was educated a lawyer, and was a member of the Colonial Council, in place of his elder brother, Mann Page, of Rosewell. In this capacity we find the name of Hon. John Page, of North End, in the Virginia Almanac for 1776. He was, therefore, among the last of the Colonial Councillors. (Genealogy of the Page family in Virginia: By Richard Channing Moore Page).

Hon. John Page and Jane Byrd, his wife, married in 1746, had fifteen children in all, four of whom died infants, their names being unknown. The eleven that survived were as follows:

  • Mann Page (1747 - 1779), eldest, born at North End, Gloucester (now Matthews) Co., VA., about 1747; removed to Fairfield. Clarke Co.. VA. He married, about 1767, Mary Mason Selden, of Salvington. Stafford Co., VA.
