      Mayes, Henry, will presented to Court 18 November 1713, by John Copedge.(This is a burned will-one of those lost in the fire of 1710,- and which was rerecorded in a will -book erroneously entitled Wills 1706-1720. All of the wills in this book were probated prior to the fire. This particular will has date of probate 18 June 1702. Note is made of it and others in this Order Book because of the new information given. The above named John Copedge has now entered the picture because he has married the widow of Henry Mayes Sr. A son Henry Mayes Jr. , and the widow, were the executors. Henry Jr. died a short time before the fire and the widow died shortly after the above entry as on p.12 of this Order Book we have the following information:- 20 January 1713/14, Christopher Mayes, only surviving son of Henry Mayes applies for aaministration of that part of the Estate not yet administered, the exeutors being dead. )

      "Although it has been stated that Coppedge married Mayes widow, there does not appear to be evidence to support this."

      only John Coppedge s/o of William is mentioned in Northumberland Co. Va court records, and Elitia died a "Mayes"
