I found these cases in Accomack County, Virginia Court Order Abstracts Vol. 28, abstracted by JoAnn Riley McKey. Interestingly, as explained by the intro to this volume, the bastardy rate surged in this Virginia county during the time of the Revolutionary War. The time period between 1773-1777 showed only 26 illegitimate children mentioned in court orders, while between 1777-1780, more than 70 illegitimate children are mentioned in court orders.
Zerubbabel Watson was charged with fathering Mary Martin's bastard child and did not deny the charge. He was ordered to pay the mother £4 per year for 5 years.

Mary Rodgers had action brought against her for bastardy. John Finny, Jonathan Mears, and Michael Budd had to pay her £12 per year to support the child (was one the father and the others his securities? Were they ALL suspected of being the father? No one is specifically named as father and securities!).
