      In a patent issued to CAPT. JOHN WILKINS, of Accomac County, to lands in Upper County of New Norfolk in May, 1637, on the East side of Nansemond river, he names as headrights, one ROWLAND RAYNE and THOMASIN, his wife. In Beverly Fleet's Abstracts of Accomac County, Virginia., Page 85, for the years 1639-40, there appears: "A true and perfect inventory of the estate of ROWLAND RAYNE, lately deceased in ACCOMAC". So Rowland Rayne died. But he evidently left a son ANDREW RAYNE. REV. JOHN ROZIER was the minister of HUNGAR'S PARISH in Accomac County for seven years beginning as the successor of the famous WILLIAM COTTON, who died in 1840. ROZIER left ACCOMAC sometime about 1656/7 and went to Westmoreland County. He was succeeded by a couple of ministers who served only a brief period, and then by a REV.THOMAS HIGHEY who had married the widow of JOHN WILKINS who had brought over Rowland Rayne and his wife some twenty years before. In Westmoreland County, Virginia in January, 1656, our REV. JOHN ROZIER patented 1050 acres of land and named among other headrights, ANDREW RAYNE, son, no doubt of THOMASINE, the widow of ROWLAND RAYNE. That she became the wife of ANDREW HARRISON, a son of ANTHONY, seems most reasonable, since JAMES HARRISON?? brother of ANDREW HARRISON had a son ANDREW HARRISON who afterwards married the widow of JOHN ROZIER, JR. Also in view of the two entries found on the old Gainford Parish Register of County Durham, England, showing many intermarriages between the HARRISON and RAYNE families, including RALPH HARRISON to AGNES RAYNE, Oct. 17, 1554, and ANTHONY HARRISON to MAUDLIN LOADMAN in 1647, nearly 100 years later, with the LOADMANS and HARRISONS in close association in early North Carolina near the end of the 17th century

      URL title: Marsha Graves part 2
      Anne (or Anne) Graves (5) was born about 1620, and died 2 March 1683/4 in Charles County, Maryland. Her will was proved 18 July 1683 in Charles County, Maryland. She first married Rev. William Cotton, son of Andrew Cotton and Joane ------, before 10 July 1637 in Hungar's Parish, Accawmack (or Accomac) County, Virginia. He died in 1640. There is a tradition in the family that he was a son of widow Joan Cotton of Bunbury, Cheshire County, England, and was granted 350 acres of land on the main branches of Hungar's Creek, adjoining the lands of his brother-in-law, Capt. William Stone. This consisted of 100 acres for personal adventure of himself and wife and 250 acres for the transportation of five persons to Virginia, viz. Eleanor Hill, Richard Hill, Edward Eason, and Domingo and Sambo, negroes. William Cotton was succeeded by Rev. John Rozier.

      Anne secondly married Nathaniel Eaton, son of Richard Eaton, about 1641 (by 1642). Nathaniel was assistant to Rev. Rozier, and was previously the first head of Harvard College. He went to Virginia after his dismissal from Harvard. He fled from his creditors in Virginia about 1647, deserting his family, and died in 1674.

      Anne thirdly married Francis Doughty, son of Francis Doughtie, on 8 June 1657. He died about 1683. He, like Ann's first two husbands, was Rector of Hungar's Parish. She later went with him to Rappahannock County, where he was Rector of Sittenbourne and South Farnham Parishes in 1665. (R-114, R-515)
