William Elliot made his will on 30th March 1791 and mentioned his wife Jane Elliot and son William Elliot[1]

William Elliott's Will

William Elliott was born in 1740 in Virginia. He married Jane Jean Clark in 1780 in his hometown. They had at least five children:

  • William Elliott (1760–1809), md. Eliz. SHINDLER
  • John Elliott (1771–1806), md. CROCKETT
  • Nancy Elliot (1772–1850), md. MERRILL
  • Thomas Elliott (1775–)

William Elliott was enumerated in the census of Rowan county NC for 1790. [2] He died shortly after this, in 1791 in Rowan, North Carolina, at the age of 51.[3]

Research Note

In the will, William mentions only his son William, and his 'beloved wife Jane'; please note that Jane is still alive and inherits the house 'for the duration of her life'. She and her son William are executors of the will. As this will is dated 1791, and the place of origin is Rowan County, NC, this shows it is a different Jane than the Jane Clark Elliott, who had died in 1780, in Augusta VA. (see the note left by someone else below)


Possibly the father of Amos 'Stump' Elliott. If so, please provide sources.

William was previously connected to Jane Clark, however she was married to a different William Elliot. This William did have a wife named Jane, but she needs a seperate profile.

DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with William by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA. However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with William:

Elliott-65 and Elliott-9260 do not represent the same person because: Too many discrepancies - birth date and location, death ldate and location for example. DNA results look to be from different people, decendents do not match

Can you please check your research ? There seems to have been a mixup because the profile says he was born in England but the bio says he was born in Virginia. Thanks

This profile is unsourced, and included an unproven paternal relationship to Elliott-1881. Child removed pending documentation.
