Notes: It is probable, based upon the dates of the above, that the info re: John Vaus is of a son or grandson rather than John himself. He would be almost 100 years old at his death in 1691 while still having an underage daughter, Agatha. Also, there is no mention in the above of daughter Margaret. As of this date (8-18-97), I am changing the death date from 1691 to the WFT est of 1624-1684.
6 March 1999

[[Notes: It appears that the above information is dealing with 3 generations of men named JOHN VAUSE. The first is the immigrant VAUSE who arrived in Virginia prior to 1635 when daughter Margaret Dora Vause married Richard Beauford. He patented land in his own name as early as 1638. In 1664, John is listed as a witness to the signing of a deed along with an ANNE VAUSE. His wife?
The second JOHN VAUSE died about July of 1680, although there is no evidence of an actual will. On 19 July 1680, Christopher Robinson is appointed guardian to 3 children of John Vause: JOHN & DIANA VAUSE, aged ~14 years (born ~1666) and CONSTANCE VAUSE.
The third JOHN VAUSE married Elizabeth, the widow of Francis Weeks (son of Abraham Weeks). They had 1 daughter, Agatha Vause, born 28 Feb 1688. John died in 1691, his will being dated 8 Sept 1691. He names his wife, daughter and some other family members: sister Constance Vaus who m. William Daniel & nephew William Daniel (Jr); sister Elizabeth Vause who m. James Curtis & nephews/nieces James, Averilla & Chichley Curtis; and nephew Christopher Robinson. The guardianship court orders of 1680 allow the conclusion that this JOHN VAUSE was ~25 years old at his death. He was Middlesex County Clerk.
