John Knight (c. 1710-1771) is believed to have been son of John Hughes Knight, Sr
In 1727 John (1710), served as a witness to an indenture between Samuel Gregory of Charles City County and William Knight of Goochland County. In this transaction, Gregory sold Knight 130 acres in Goochland County for £20 - land formerly owned, in part, by Joseph Woodson who had a sister Elizabeth Woodson. (In June 1742, William and John Knight sold the same 130 acres for £50.)
John (1710) Knight married Elizabeth Woodson about 1729.
John received a patent to 383 acres of land in Brunswick (now Lunenburg) County. John and Elizabeth moved to those newly settled lands in Brunswick (now Lunenburg) County) abt 1734.
Abt 1740 John was buying land in North Carolina, owning finally about 1,000 acres. He lived there for a time, but eventually moved back to Lunenburg County.
His will, covering six pages, lists what his twelve children have already received and what he feels is due them. The children were Jonathan, John, Peter, William, Joseph, Rachel, Charles, Woodson, Elizabeth, Judith and Mary Lea.
