There is more information about John Waters' business transactions. From Vol. XI, No. 3 (Jan. 1904), p.305. "We are indebted to Judge W J Leake, of this city, a descendent of William Overton, for the following note:

The following is a copy of the Overton register, copied from the book Josephus:

Barbara Overton, their daughter, born Feb y 5, 1690
Barbara Overton married John Winston.
Barbara Overton Winston died Octo. 30, 1766.
The above is a copy of a copy made by Wm. S. Pryor (a descendant of Barbara Overton Winston), in August, 1821.
This Josephus is mentioned in Barbara Overton Winston's will, a copy of which you will find in Mr. Isaac Winston's manuscript.
This Josephus was burned at "Courtland", a few years ago, when the house of the late Wm. Overton Winston, dec'd, was destroyed by fire.[2]

  • William Overton married Elizabeth Waters on board the ship from England to Virginia. Source: http://www.geneajourney.com/overton.html
  • Alternatively, they married at Yorktown, York River, York, Virginia, on board the vessel in which Elizabeth Waters had come to Virginia.

Some records call his wife Mary,others Elizabeth, which appears to be the case also with one of their daughters. But the will of Ann Waters, dated 7 Sep 1697, of St. Sepulchre, London, England, specifically calls her daughter Elizabeth Overton `now in Virginia`. Also named as being in Virginia is her brother, John Waters.
