From Historical Southern Families at http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~celticlady/thornton/Boddie-Thorntons.htm: John Atwell was probably the youngest son of Thomas Atwell alias Collins. He was deeded land in 1692 by his brother, Francis. He married (1) in 1694 or early in 1695 Winifred English, widow of Walter English, Jr. who died in 1693 (O. B. 1690-98, p. 112), and daughter of Capt. Thomas Youell and his wife, Anna Lee. The marriage occurred between July26, 1694, when Winifred English appears in a suit (same, p. 144a), and Feb. 1, 1694/5, when Capt. Youell added a codicil to his will. The will of Capt. Thomas Youell, dated Dec. 7, 1694 and probated May 29, 1695, mentions his wife Anna; grandsons Youell English, Youell Watts, and Thomas Spence; and his daughter Watts; the codicil, dated Feb. 1, 1694/5 leaves land to John Atwell and a bequest to his daughter Winifred (D. & W. No.2, p. 22). Winifred (Youell) English had four children by her first marriage, Walter, Youell, Edmund and Lucy English (O. B. 1690-98, p. 200). She apparently had only one child by her marriage to John Atwell, namely Youell Atwell, b, 1695-96, for she died between July 29, 1696 and Aug. 26, 1696 (same, pp. 210 and 216). After her death, John Atwell married (2) about 1698-99 Elizabeth Payne, widow of John Payne, who died in Westmoreland Co. early in 1698. John Payne's will, dated Oct. 4, 1697 and probated Feb.23, 1697/8, mentions his wife, Elizabeth, and his sons, John and William (D. & W. No. 2, p. 128). Elizabeth Payne was married to John Atwell by Feb. 26, 1700/1, when she gave up her dower in a deed (O. B. 1698-1705, p. 106a). John Atwell died in 1713. His will, dated April 26, 1713 and probated June 24, 1713 mentions sons Thomas, Youell and Samuel; daughters Hannah, Lydia and Frances Atwell; and wife Elizabeth (D. & W. No. 5, p. 177). Elizabeth Atwell, the widow, died early in 1719, for on Feb. 26, 1718/19 William Paine, son of John Paine and Elizabeth his wife, who was executrix of John Atwell, her late husband, was granted administration on her estate (O. B. 1705-21, p. 362a). John Paine, the first husband of Elizabeth Atwell, was the son of an earlier John Paine (b. 1623, d. about 1669 in Westmoreland Co.), whose will, dated Dec. 9, 1668, mentions his son John (under 17), daughter Elizabeth, wife Millicent, and son James (D. & W.1653-9, p.138; D. & W. 1666-77, p. 36). William Paine, the elder son of John and Elizabeth Paine, deeded to Francis Awbrey the land that he had inherited from his father and grandfather, on Feb. 21, 1721/22, his wife Elizabeth giving up her dower in the land, and in that year moved away from Westmoreland Co. (D. & W. No. 7, p. 351, 1720-22; O. B. 1721-31, p. 19, p. 42a). He seems to have moved to Hanover Co. (same, p. 88a). John Paine, the younger son, married about 1720 Elizabeth (Cox) Lewis, widow of William Lewis and daughter of Vincent Cox, Sr. (same, p. 71a). He died in 1729, his stepson, Vincent Lewis, being his administrator, leaving an only daughter, Mary Paine, who in 1730 was placed under the guardianship of John Footman, "who has married a sister of John Paine, decd." (presumably Frances Atwell, John's half-sister) (O. B. l721-31, pp.269a and 346a). Mary Paine was married by 1739 to William Rice (D. & W. No. 9, 1738-44, p. 29), whose first wife was Keziah (Awbrey) Atwell, widow of Youe11 Atwe1l. The parentage of Elizabeth Paine Atwell, wife of John Paine and of John Atwell, in uncertain. Miss Lucy Browne Beale of The Hague, Va., a competent genealogist, stated some years ago that she was practically certain that Elizabeth was the daughter of John Awbrey, Sr. of Westmoreland Co., Va., who died in 1692 (O. B. 1690-98, p. 74), and his wife, Jane, who married (2) William Chandler. However, Miss Beale was unable to find proof of this, though she felt sure she had seen it somewhere. John and Jane Awbrey had three proved children, John Awbrey, Francis Awbrey, and Sarah Awbrey (who was born in 1681 and unmarried in 1702) (D. & W. No. 3, p. 79). The records show plenty of connection between John and Francis Awbrey and the John Atwell family. John and Francis Awbrey were witnesses to John Atwell's will in 1713; William Paine, son of Elizabeth, deeded his land to Francis Awbrey in 1722; John Paine and Francis Awbrey were securities to William Paine on the estate of John and Elizabeth Atwell in 1722 (O. B. 1721-31, p. 19); Francis Awbrey was one of the securities for Hannah Atwell, daughter of John and Elizabeth, when she took over the property from her brother, William Paine, in 1723 (same, p.48); and Chandler Awbrey, only son of John Awbrey, in his will in 1755 left mourning suits, not only to his sister and niece, Hannah McAuley and her daughter Mary, but also to Mrs. Martha Atwell (wife of Samuel Atwell, son of John and Elizabeth), Mrs. Elizabeth Atwell, and Miss Sarah Atwell (D. & W. No.13, 1755-61, 28). These records certainly indicate kinship between the Awbreys and the Atwells, but they do not prove that Elizabeth, wife of John Atwell, was a sister of John and Francis Awbrey; for the two brothers, as we shall see, married Hannah and Frances Tanner, nieces of John Atwell himself. Of the children of John Atwell, Youell Atwell, b. ca. 1695/6, son of the first wife, Winifred Youell, married Keziah Awbrey, daughter of John and Hannah (Tanner) Awbrey, and died, apparently without issue, in 1731, his wife being married (2) to William Rice by 1732 (O. B. 1731-41, p. 380a; O. B. 1731-9, p. 11; Records in Inventories 1723-44, pp. 107 and 110). Thomas Atwell, probably the eldest son of John and Elizabeth Atwell, seems to have died without issue before his brother Youell, for his brother Samuel was heir to Youell's land, as proved by the records above regarding Youell Atwell's estate. Samuel Atwell was probably the youngest child of John and Elizabeth Atwell, born about 1710/11, as he was under the guardianship of his brother Youell in 1725, but was acting for himself Jan. 26, 1731/2, when he sued William Rice, who had married Youell's widow (O. B. 1721-31,p. 101; O. B. 1731-39, p. 11). He married about l736 Martha (Howell) Davis, widow of William Davis, and daughter of John Howell and his wife, Martha, daughter of Vincent Cox, Sr. (D.& W. No. 8, 1723-38, p. 292; O.B. 1731-39, pp. 209 and 216). It is uncertain whether Samuel Atwell left issue. Of the daughters of John and Elizabeth Atwell, Hannah was probably the eldest, born ca. 1702, as she seems to have been of age Aug. 29, 1723, when she was entrusted with the property of her brothers and sisters (O. B. 1721-31, p.48). She married prior to July 31,1731 Vincent3 Redman, son of John2 and Ann (Cox) Redman, as mentioned previously (O. B. 1721-31, p. 385a). Lydia Atwell seems to have been unmarried, and is mentioned briefly in the records in 1738 (O. B. 1731-39, p.258).Frances Atwell, the third daughter, seems to have married (1) John Sorrell, who died prior to 1724 and (2) John Footman, who was security to Hannah Atwell in 1723 for the Atwell property, and is said to have married a sister of John Paine in 1730 (O. B. 1721-31, p. 346a) and to have married the widow of John Sorrell in 1732 (O. B. 1731-39, p.15). Frances died prior to 1738, when John Footman had married the relict of Richard Kenner (O. B. 1731-39, p. Z76a).
