Note: Etheldred Brantley posted guardian bond in 1782 as guardian to Thomas, John, Ben, Jesse & Tabitha. In 1785 he received his wife's portion of the estate of John Porter.

Death: 1777 in Southampton County, VA

Note:

According to court records, he left a will which was destroyed by Etheldred Brantley. Brantley then married the widow Rebecca on 6 Feb 1778. The case against Etheldred and Rebecca for wasting and embezzling the estate of John Porter was dropped. [This information comes from genealogist Mark Lowe, but so far I have not been able to verify it.]

The inventory of John's estate was recorded Jan 10, 1782.

Birth: ABT 1740

Note:

There is some question about the father of this John Porter. It was either Thomas Porter who died in 1788 in Southampton, or of James Porter who had a son John as noted in the following deed. Both Thomas and James were the sons of Charles Porter.

Southampton County VA Deeds 1767-1781, p. 303, 20 August 1770, Henry Pope and wife Mary sell to John Porter son of James Porter, for 30 pounds, 195 acres +- beginning at a forked poplar on the north side of Tocknohunty [Toquothunta/Tockwothunty] Swamp thence N 15 degrees W 83 poles to a pine thence N 86 degrees West 200 poles to a great pine at the head of a branch thence S by W 61 poles to 2 gums by Tecknohunty Swamp side aforesaid thence down the various courses of the run of the ______Swamp to the beginning part of the survey; wit Benj. Blunt, Edmund Day Jr, John Powell

The argument if favor of Thomas as the father of John is that John named his eldest son Thomas.
