James BURWELL married Mary ARMISTEAD and had children, Captain Nathaniel Burwell and Lucy Burwell (Mary ARMISTEAD married secondly Philip LIGHTFOOT).
Captain Nathaniel Bacon Burwell (Inventory L1669 rec. 1749) married, and had James Burwell, who married Anne Jones (b. 1739, d 1779). In 1790 Nathaniel Bacon Burwell, Jr., and Elizabeth, his wife, sold Kings Creek Plantation, of 1800 acres, "on which he now lives and his late father, James Burwell lived".
A daughter of Capt. Nathaniel Bacon Burwell must have married John Reade, as his dau Elizabeth, is called granddaughter in Mary Armistead LIGHTFOOT's will (proved 1775).
