Edward Berry married Jane (Jadwin) Crutcher, widow of John and mother of John, Jane and Sisely. Jane died unmarried, and John Crutcher married Anne Benger. Some information concerning the John Critchers I am researching appears in (Elizabeth W. McNamara, Descendants of Thomas Crutcher Died 1722 Essex County Virginia (Baltimore, MD. 1985. Gateway Press), Pgs 194-198.) A short appendix on the family of John Critcher appears in this book. It contains some errors including Cicely Critcher's marriage, Jane Jadwins name and Ann (Benger) Critchers name. "Her husband is listed as John Benger, and her children as Ann, Jane and Winefred. THIS IS INCORRECT." COMMENT: This assumed marriage is apparently based on John Benger's will concerning his brother-in-law John Critcher.Ann Benger was John's sister, thus John Critcher was his brother-in-law.
This can be shown from (Sam and Ruth Sparacio, VA, Richmond County Deeds 1714-1720, pg 103.) "pg 77. I William Butler & Sisley his wife of the county of Westmoreland and Parish of Cople for 1200 pounds of tobacco payd by Richard Benger of the County of Richmond and Parish of North Farnham do release unto Richd Benger all the estat title and demand as sd Wm and Sisley Butler have in the 100 acres of land whereon Richard Benger now release unto Richd Benger all the estat title and demand as sd Wm and Sisley Butler have in the 100 acres of land whereon Richard Benger now lives and left by the will of her father John Crutcher Senr to the said Sisley his daughter. 31 Aug 1715. At court for Richmond County 5 Oct 1715 William Butler and Sisely his wife came into court and acknowledged this deed." An unusual WB mark is used by both the William Butler of this deed and the William Butler of the 1734 will.
