1656-57: will of Nicholas Martineau dated March 1, 1656 - 7, and proved April 4, 1757, names three daughters:

  • Elizabeth, his eldest daughter was the wife of George Reade;
  • Mary married John Scasbrook, of York County; and
  • Sarah married Captain William Fuller, distinguished Puritan governor of Maryland.

These daughters were probably by the second wife, Jane, widow of Edward Berkeley. Martieau's French wife and children probably did not survive "the seasoning period." Nicholas was the common ancestor of George Washington, Robert E. Lee and many other eminent Virginians.
