      Gottschalk notes that there is ONLY ONE RECORD IN STAFFORD for this Richard Mason: She states that he was living in Stafford Co. in 1692 when his wife, Frances petitioned the court to be allowed to work for her living as her husband did not support her. I have NOT seen this record; thus it is questionable as a source.

      However, in 1705, the will of William Wentworth Matheny left to a William Mason, "the son of my wife Frances," 100 acres in the Aquia area. It may be the 100 acres described in the following deed between Thomas Norman and William Matheny , witnessed by John Mason, and later purchased by William Wentworth Matheny

      Gottschalk claims two more children for Richard Mason and wife Frances: George Mason, for whom she has no further information [and I have thus far found no evidence that he existed] and Frances Mason who married 1) John Kirk 2) William Clift.
