"There appears to be a two-generation difference in Tillman's marriage for Richard Reynolds of Isle of Wight. Jester, in the 1956 edition of Adventurers of Purse and Person, Virginia 1607-1625, (1956) states, "Richard2 Reynolds (Christopher1) ... married Joyce, daughter of Richard Staples." [Isle of Wight Deed Bk 8, p242).
"Boddie, in Vol. II Historical Southern Families states: Christopher3 Reynolds (Richard2, Christopher1) of the Lower Parish sold Timothy Tynes of the same l00 acres "purchased of my father, Richard Reynolds and Richard Reynolds, Jr., 9 Jun 1698, and my father Reynolds lately dying, descended to me and dower of Joyce Reynolds, relict of my father Reynolds and Elizabeth Reynolds, my wife." Wits.: Arthur Smith, John Frizzell, Thomas Summerelle. (D.B. 1704-15) Arthur Smith, father of the Arthur Smith who witnessed the above deed, in his will dated 1 Oct 1645, gave his daughter Jane Smith land next to "Christopher Reynolds," the grandfather of the above Christopher of 1698.
"Richard Reynolds, with wife "Joyce," was probably the Richard Reynolds who married an unnamed daughter of Richard Staples (D.B.1, p25; C.M. 38) It will be noted that Richard Reynolds with wife Joyce made [p421] a deed 9 Jun 1697, and Joyce was his widow when he died in 1707. [Boddie, Vol. II Historical Southern Families.]
"There are several references to Richard Reynolds and Joyce in Isle of Wight records:
...Richard Reynolds, Sr. He and his wife Joyce witnessed a deed of John and Mary Luther (Lother), 1 Oct 1693. [Boddie Vol. II]
"Richard2 Reynolds and Joyce, his wife, on 9 Sep 1706, "for love of Jane Casey, my daughter, and Richard Casey, her husband," sold a tract adjacent to Tristam Norsworthy "part of land I live on." Wits., Arthur Smith, Richard Reynolds, Jr., Thomas Joyce (D.B. 2-1704-15).
"Richard Reynolds, Jr., witnessed a deed of Richard Reynolds and Joyce his wife to Richard Reynolds' daughter Jane Casey, 9 Sep 1706 (D.B. 2-1704-15).
"On 9 Oct 1706, Richard Reynolds gave his daughter, Elizabeth Reynolds, land on Mill Creek between plantation where Widow Haris lives and where James Hamblin lives. Wife Joyce relinquished dower right. Wits., Arthur Smith, Richard Casey, Sarah Williams (Id. 1704-1715.)
Contrast the above reference to Richard with the following:
"Richard4 Reynolds (Richard3, Christopher2, Christopher1) married Elizabeth, daughter of Richard Sharpe, as shown by the will of Richard Sharpe, Jr., dated 15 Jan 1699/1700, probated 9 Apr 1700, as follows: " ... to my cozen (nephew) Richard5 Reynolds, silver tumblers, also all land during term of my lease from Col. Arthur Smith, decd., he to give same to his three sons Richard, Sharpe, and Christopher Reynolds; Rich. Reynolds, exr. 15, Jan 1699/1700, prob/ Apr/9, 1700; Henry Applewhite, John Flood, Jas. Mathews.' [Boddie Vol II]
"Richard4 Reynolds made his will 27 July 1711, probated 26 May 1712, as follows: "To wife, Eliz. where I now live for life, and adjacent lands there were formerly Richard Jordan's ... to son Richard5 Reynolds a plantation ... to son Sharpe Reynolds a plantation ... to son Christopher 320 acres where Edward Griffith lived ... to Richard Jackson land I have sold him and given bond ... to son Richard ... where George Strode lived ... to son Sharpe where John Green lived... 27 July, 1711." Pro. 26 May 1712. A. Smith, Giles Driver, Jane Benn. (W.B.A.-536; C-2-74) "
