Alice owned property in colonial Virginia.

Alice's 3rd husband: Henry Bagwell had a 13 August 1639 grant of 400 acres located on Old Plantation Creek at Johnny Boyes branch, near the property of William Berryman. By 28 April 1663, this property belonged to his son, John Bagwell, when he gifted 100 acres to his brother, Thomas.[3]

Alice (Hawkins) Stratton, Chilcott, Bagwell died at the Bagwell plantation at Matomkin, Northampton (Eastern Shore), Virginia, in 1646 or 1647, following the birth of her last son, William, who also passed away.
