Hi All,

Have been going through documents (land deeds - court orders etc ) for
Virginia late 1600 through 1750.

It is now apparent that Richard Mauldin (Probably Thomas Richard or Richard
Thomas) that married Jane Taylor was married previously to an unknown wife.
It is also apparent, that this Richard was the merchant that was appointed
Magistrate in the formation of Caroline County.

We have information that Jane Taylor acknowledged her dower on a land deal
between Richard Mauldin and her father James Taylor 22 July 1722. By this
acknowledgement, it is assumed that the marriage took place on or about

The statement that Richard Mauldin was probably married previously to an
unknown is from records that show his son Richard Jr. was a witness to a
land deed for Thomas Jackson on 17 June 1735. If Richard Jr was a son of
Jane Taylor, he would have been about 12 years of age and would not be
witnessing a legal document.

fact that since the organization of Caroline (county) .... some of the most
powerful men in the country, Walter Chiles, Thomas Carr, Thomas Mauldin, and
Robert Woolfolk, who were already magistrates

Constables siezed John Wilson for cursing King George [ John Wilson
son-in-law of Richard Mauldin] and was sentenced to twenty lashes on his
bare back at the publich whipping post.
Richard Mauldin and Thomas Rucker publickly proclaimed the fact that the
sentence was too harsh. Governor Gooch removed them as magistrates.

At this point, with John Wilson being a son-in-law of Richard Mauldin it
is most apparent that Richards daughter had to have been born prior to 1722.

Having determined that the Richard Mauldin that married Jane Taylor is the
same Richard Mauldin that was Magistrate - Land Owner - Merchant. I now
feel that instead of five possibly six Richard Mauldins in the Caroline
County VA area at
the same time there were only four. Two Richard Sr.'s and two Richard
