NOTE: There are many inaccuracies in this profile, such as the birth year of Elizabeth Scowne and the birth years of said sons. Further research is needed to determine the number of children born to Elizabeth and William Westray, and John Marshall II, and to which father they belong. Birth years and marriage dates are crucial.
Elizabeth Susannah Scowne was born before 1638 on the Isle of Wight, Virginia. She is thought to have married John Marshall about 1650 in Virginia. Elizabeth Westray, widow of William Westray, deeded her estate to sons John Marshall and Humphrey Marshall in 1666. However, John Marshall Sr., presumably her first husband, didn't pass away until 1688.
Deed of Elizabeth Westray
"In 1666, Elizabeth Westray, widow of William Westray, and seemingly, also, previously of John Marshall, deeded her estate to John Marshall and Humphrey, his son, as evidence to my children John and Humphrey Marshall.
"Elizabeth Westwray, widow of Wm. Westwray, deeds all real and personal estate to John Marshall and Humphrey Marshall, his son, *** to evidence to my said children, John and Humphrey Marshall, 8 May, 1666. Teste, Thos. Holloway, Peter Garland."
"The deed of Elizabeth Westray is somewhat confusing as there seems to be no evidence as to the first name of her former Marshall husband. Somewhere there is a Robert Marshall mentioned as being in the county very early, and if so, he could have been Elizabeth's former husband, which would make John Marshall the first "John Marshall" in the county, but of the second generation."
"Elizabeth Marshall Westray is said by some to have been Elizabeth Susannah Scowne, daughter of Humphrey Scowne, but the writer has found no supporting evidence. On 16 September 1636, Humphrey Scowne patented 100 acres in Warrosquyoake County (original name of Isle of Wight County) on the south side of Nanzamund River, being between the land of Joseph Sammond and John Geary. On the same day, and in the same county, he patented 200 acres lying between the land of Mr. Richard Bennett and the land of Francis Hoope."
