Matthias Chetwood married Mary Key, daughter of Richard of Northumberland Co, prior to Feb.15,1725 (Folio 418) 1718-1726 Northumberland Co. Mary Key, daughter of Richard Key ,was born Jan12,1695 Northumberland Co ,church records of births . This marriage of Matthias Chetwood in early records of Northumber, Goochland and Henrico counties seems to place Matthias in the family of Thomas Chitwood, the first colonist of the name in Lancaster Co.Was he possibly the son of another son of Thomas Chetwood who may have inherited the Northumberland County lands of his Father?
