William Lacy also known as "William Lacy of Greenbrier" was born 5th of Dec 1725 in New Kent Co., Virginia and may have been the son of Benjamin Lacey and Ann Batts. Its also possible that this William might have been the son of a Henry Lacy or possibly an Edmond Lacy that were both contemporaries in early New Kent County, VA. Both Edmond and Henry can be found in the St. Peter's Parish Vestry Book and Register. Edmond Lacy is found on page 387 as an exor of a Will for William Meux, Decd. in the year 1714/1715, while Henry Lacy shows up in the year 1725 for the baptism of his daughter Elizabeth. There are also several other entries in St. Peter Parish Registry for Henry, but since Henry Lacy's daughter Elizabeth was born on 20 of July 1725 that would make it impossible for William Lacy to have the birth date of December 5, 1725 and be the son of Henry Lacy. There are also 3 other Lacys, but spelled Lacey in the Virginia Quit Rolls New Kent County Rent Roll 1704, they were:
But at this point there is no strong evidence to prove who William Lacy's parents were. William Lacy did marry at least once to a Sarah _ _ _ _?, which can also be viewed in the St. Peter's Parish Registry. William Lacy also may have married couple more times. Here is a list of those women:
Three other possible children by Sarah _ _ _ _? might be:
Sarah _ _ _ _? most likely died after the birth John Chapman Lacy and if John Chapman was not her son, then Sarah died sometime after her Archer Lacy born earlier that year in Feb 1769. Either way, William Lacy did not marry again until after the birth of one of those children, John or Archer who were both born in the year 1769.
1st day of October 1745, a William Lacey, Susnnah Lacy and Thomas Lacy is listed in a balance brought forward from a Merchant's Account book, in Hanover County, VA. It's on page 123 in the Magazine of the Virginia Genealogy, Volume 38, Number 2 - See Upload page
When did William Lacy, and his family leave New Kent Co., Virginia? In the 1782 Tax Tithables for New Kent County, Virginia. There are Two different William Lacys, were either of these William Lacy, who married Sarah _ _ _ _ _?

1784 Personal Tax list for New Kent County, VA There is at least one William Lacy living in New Kent County, VA. Where there were two William Lacys in the 1782, one alive and one dead who left an estate. In this 1784 Personal Tax list, there was also John Lacy and an Edmond Lacy.
So, it is possible that William Lacy born 1724 may have left with his family after the 1784 Land Tax Records. Some researchers believe that he was the William Lacy who passed away on the 8th Aug 1794 in Greenbrier, Virginia. But who was the William Lacy, who died prior to the 1782 Land Tax Records and was William Lacy, who was born 1724 possibly his son? So, many questions not yet answered.
For instance in 1790 the U.S. Federal State Census was taken for the 1st time and we literally see explosion of the "Lacy" family in New Kent County, Virginia. In this 1790 Census there is still listed, a William Lacy, Estate, along with a William Lacy, Jr. And Again in 1791 there is a Personal Tax List that also show a William Lacy, Sr. and a William Lacy, Jr. along with many other Lacys. There are just so many Lacys that its difficult to tell whom William Lacy was that married Sarah _ _ _ _? and had a William, Jr., Lucy, Kiddy and Archer, without more documentation to prove or Blood YDNA to prove who belongs to who? Is it possible that William Lacy who was married to Sarah _ _ _ _? has been in New Kent County all along, while the William Lacy 1724-1794 in Greenbreir County, WV was a different William a Contemporary a cousin perhaps? Or are they the same and William had property in both New Kent County, VA and Greenbier County, WV. More question that need answering. See Upload's to 1790 U.S. Federal State Census and the 1791 Tax list.
Now lets talk about the 1800 Personal Tax list and the 1800 Property Tax List. It would seem that Archer Lacy, son of William & Sarah _ _ _ _ _? Lacy have returned, who was living in Campbell County, Virginia with his wife Juriah Clement. William Lacy, Sr. is no longer mentioned and a son has returned to property inherited or is this another Archer? See both uploaded Tax Lists.
In the Military List for New Kent County, Virginia we find a Lieut. William Lacy. who enlisted in the Revolutionary War from New Kent County, VA. Being already a LIeut. implies that he was older than his 20's and had received that title from earlier services in the military. perhaps services in the French and Indian War is one thought. Whether or not they are one in the same is difficult to tell. See Uploaded document. Another thought is, did Lieut. William Lacy received his land in the South Western part of Virginia, which later became part of Greenbier Co., W.V as payment for his military services. Men who fought in the Revolutionary War had a choice between a pensions or land.
As we talk about William Lacy born 1724, died 1794, in Greenbrier County, W. V. There seem to be two more marriages that Researchers are arguing about that need to be listed has possible wives of William Lacy, Sr. 1724, died 1794 and possible his son William Lacy Jr. born 1755. At this point though without further documentation other than a Marriage Certificate it's hard to tell how old the William Lacy's were that married these two Women:
Without further documents to prove Marriages, and Other types of documents, such as Land deeds and Gifts, it's really hard to tell, which William Lacy they married. And are they all the same William Lac that married Sarah_ _ _ _?
