ISAAC WINSTON (seal) Signed, sealed and declared in the presence of John Holden, Roger Mallory, George Clayton.
At a court held for Hanover County on Thursday, the sixth day of March, 1760, this last will and testament of Isaac Winston, deceased, was offered for proof by Isaac Winston, one of the executors therein named, and was proved by the oath of John Holden and George Clayton two of the witnesses thereto and also by the oath of the said Isaac Winston as executor thereto and admitted to record. March 6, 1760. Test: William Pollard, D.C.H.C.
Isaac was prosperous and active in county affairs. In the 1704 Quit Rent Roll, he was charged with 850 acres in what later became Hanover County. In 1708, he and 8 others were ordered by the parish vestry to assist in the construction of a horse bridge over Beaver Dam Creek (Bettie W.) In 1712, he was put in charge of clearing a road from John WhiteÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂs Mill to Half Sink and six residents and their tithables were ordered to assist him. He was appointed a Justice of the Peace soon after Hanover County was created from New Kent County in 1720. In 1721, he and another justice were appointed to confer with two justices from neighboring Henrico County regarding building a bridge over the Chickahominy Creek that divided the two counties. These records indicate that his residence, known as Half Sink, was located in the southwestern part of Hanover County, near the border with Henrico County. In1726, he was listed as coroner as well as Justice of the Peace in Hanover County in a report by Lieutenant Governor Hugh Drysdale. From 1731-1744, he was referred to as Capt. Winston in county records and identified as a merchant.
Isaac appears to have been an independent thinker in the religious area. In October, 1745, the KingÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂs prosecutor brought a case in the General Court in Williamsburg before Governor Sir William Gooch against John Roan, Isaac Winston Sr., and five others for allowing John Roan, a dissenting minister, to preach at their houses. The jury brought in a special verdict that the meetings did occur, but the people did not act in a riotous manner and the case was continued for points of law to be argued later. The cases of Isaac and another defendant were brought up in April, 1748, resulting in a fine of 20 shillings and court costs for each defendant.
IsaacÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂs will was signed in February, 1760, and proved in March, 1760, indicating his death in 1760. The will indicates that his second wife, Mary, was living when he signed it. [4, 5]
