Yes this does help.
The PEARSON line could be of major importance in proving certain relationships.
John Alexander married a Susannah Pearson who may be d/o below Simon Pearson.
John Alexander's mother Ann nee Fowke was sister of Frances Fowke m. Dr. Gustavus Brown.
[Dr. Gustavus Brown was in records with a William Maconchie and a Robert Maconchie.]
John Alexander's wife Susannah Pearson seems to have had a sister Constantia Pearson m. Nathaniel Chapman?
[Nathaniel Chapman and wife Constantia may have had a son PEARSON CHAPMAN who shows up as witness on Will of JOANNA WOOD in CC MD.]
Nathaniel Chapman may also have been named "friend" along with Peter Hedgman on the Will of George Williams m. Jane Pope.
George Williams' son Nathaniel Williams married Elizabeth Hudson, d/o Thomas Hudson who died 1750 in CC MD.
[Thomas Hudson had daughter Ann Hudson who may possibly have married an Alexander Maconchie who was my 5xgf.]
Additional comments and corrections needed.
Note below Will of SIMON PEARSON had NATHANIEL CHAPMAN and ALEXANDER SCOTT.
I think this was REV. ALEXANDER SCOTT whose brother JAMES SCOTT m. SARAH BROWN, d/o Dr. GUSTAVUS BROWN.
REV. ALEXANDER SCOTT was in another record with DAVID WAUGH whose father REV. JOHN WAUGH may have been on CC MD estate of JOHN WRIGHT whose son THOMAS WRIGHT m. MARY BOOKER.

At a Court held for Stafford County the 9th day of May 1733. The within will and testament of Simon Pearson Gent. deced. was presented in Court by Thomas Pearson one of the Exor. therein named and by Nathaniel Chapman in right of his wife Constantia, another of the Exor. therein also named who made oath according to Law and was further proved by the oaths of Alexander Scott and John Mercer Gent. who on oath declared that they saw Philip Pritchet and Robert Ling sign the same as Witnesses and admitted to record and Thomas Pearson Wm. Allison and Elizabeth Cooke made oath that they heard the deced. declare and desire in his last sickness that the said will should stand without any other alteration than that his daughter Susanna should have a negro man named Solomon (purchased by him after making his said will) instead of a negro named Sarah devised her by the said will which negro died since the making thereof and on motion of the said Exor. certificate was granted them for obtaining a probate thereof in due form.
The. Claiborne, Clerk.
At a Court continued and held for Stafford County the 10th day of November, 1733 this will was further proved by the oaths of Hannah Pearson the other Exor. therein named and on her motion certificate was granted her for obtaining a probate thereof in due form.
The. Claiborne, Clerk.
the Inventory of Nov. 27, 1733, was signed by Nath. Chapman and one Jno. Geoman, and the Clerk of the Court was H. Tyler.
The Account of the Estate, filed June 12, 1739, was signed by Nathaniel Chapman, Constantia Chapman and Thomas Pearson, before H. Tyler, Clerk of the Court. Mrs. Hannah Pearson did not sign either report.
It may be interesting to note that Hening's Statutes of Virginia, Vol. 4, page 331, mentions that the land of Simon Pearson upon the up-per side of Great Hunting Creek was used for a warehouse in May, 1732.
I believe that the below WILLIAM DENT could be husband of ANN WARREN.
Below JOHN MERCER was married first to CATHERINE MASON who was d/o GEORGE MASON and wife ELIZABETH WAUGH whose FATHER was REV. JOHN WAUGH. REV. JOHN WAUGH seems to have been on estate record of JOHN WRIGHT in CC MD whose son THOMAS WRIGHT m. MARY BOOKER, d/o JOHN BOOKER.
GEORGE ELGIN was on on estate of JOHN BOOKER who also had daughter SARAH BOOKER m. FRANCIS MEEK whose son JOHN BOOKER MEEK was witness with 'ELANDER McCONKY' on 1771 CC MD Will of Francis Evans.
ELIZABETH WAUGH had the brother DAVID WAUGH who was in record with REV. ALEXANDER SCOTT whose will bequeathed to the "Mr. WILLIAM MACONCHIE". WILLIAM MACONCHIE may have been the REV. WILLIAM MACONCHIE of CC MD?
Below CATESBY COCKE may have been FATHER of ELIZABETH CATESBY COCKE who was 2nd wife of JOHN GRAHAM who was married for only TWO MONTHS to CHRISTIAN BROWN, d/o DR. GUSTAVUS BROWN.
DR. GUSTAVUS BROWN was in records with a WILLIAM MACONCHIE and a ROBERT MACONCHIE.
