About Mary Rose - Blackerby

will of John Rose

Attached hereto is a copy of the will of John Rose dated November 11, 1742. When it was offered for probate, John Rose lived in Wicomico Parish, Northumberland County. The original will is in possession of the Shackleford family of Seattle, Washington. They also have the original will of Thomas Stamps and also his revoked will.

The executors of John Rose's will were Mary, his widow, his sons-in-law Thomas Stamps and Thomas Dodson. Witnesses were William Stonum and Eleanor Chapman. The will gave to his wife's son James Blackerby three sheep, her grandson Joseph Davis seven sheep; his lands, negroes, stock, etc., to Mary Stamps and Elizabeth Dodson equally, but the entire estate to his wife during her natural life or widowhood.


Another researcher thought Mary "Blackerby" had been previously married to a Blackerby and was not the daughter of a Blackerby. Can anyone fine additional documentation?

The "Rose Tree"

lists her as being born Mary Jenkins, whose first husband was the Blackerby. As Mary Jenkins, she is the daughter of PHILIP JENKINS and SARAH STORY.

The latest information that I have is that Mary was born Mary Jenkins, and married into the name Blackerby. Her second marriage was to John Rose

According to Patt Roach: "Apparently James Blackerby I died and his wife, Mary married John Rose. Date of death of James Blackerby I would be about 1700-1701." "Her name was not Wildly."
