About William Terrell
William Richmond Terrill is often and easily confused with his father Richmond Terrill (no William), because their names were so similar and because both men married women with the birth name of Waters.
He apparently had three wives. Of the first one very little is known. (Martha) Susannah Waters was his second wife. Patsy Winston was his third wife, taken late in life, and it is not certain how many, if any, of his children are also hers.
Land Deed to Son David
1725 March 16 , St. Margaret's Parish, King William County
Family tradition has always passed down the information that William married Susannah Waters. The wife of William was named Susannah, as she was identified in a document granting her poser of attorney to her son, Henry, to relinquish her dower, when she and William deeded land on Polecat Swamp, in March 1725, to their son David.
David Terrell was the son of William and Susannah Terrell. He probably grew up in the forks of the Pamunkey River. His father and mother deeded 400 acres of land in St. Margaret's Parish, King William County, to him on March 16, 1725.
David settled on that land in the Polecat Creek area, near what was to become Caroline County and Golansville. It was the same area in which a large group of Quakers settled, and David embraced the faith. He married Agatha Chiles, the daughter of Henry Chiles of St. Paul's Parish, Hanover County.

Earlier generations must as usual be taken with large helpings of salt (everyone wants noble or royal ancestors), but the immigrant and subsequent generations are substantiated about as well as one might expect from an area that has had its records periodically destroyed.
If Susannah was born in 1667 she would not be marrying William in 1671, she would be only 4yrs old? Is this marriage date a mistake?
