Ann Paulett

ANN PAULETT was born before 1730 in Virginia, and died after 1786. She married ca 1744 to John, son of Francis Clark and Cordella Landford. John was born ca 1721 in Virginia and died in Charlotte County, Virginia after the writing of his will on 14 Aug 1779 and before 06 Jun 1791 when the will was presented to court. When Charlotte County was formed, John was living on his property but it is unknown when he settled there. On 23 Mar 1756 Francis Clark Sr. deeded to John 365 acres of land on both sides of the north branch of Fork Creek "for personal affection". He had a large estate and his will was very detailed. He 'lent' his lands to his 'beloved wife Ann' and after her death gave them to his son Robert. If she married, her son Thomas was to give her ten pounds per year for maintenance and support. Robert is not mentioned after the will was probated, so one can assume he had died by that time.
