Englishwoman, Charity Thompson, for the next two years of her term. Also mentioned were her daughter, Ann Ollover, James Penny, AND THE CHILDREN OF MARY ANKRUM. Her three sons, John Ashman, Richard Ashman, and Richard Ankrum were named as executors.

when the family moved to Stafford County, Virginia.
