  • Notes 
    • Ann Dabney was born to Cornelius Dabney II and his wife, Sarah Jennings about 1733 in Hanover County, Virginia.
      She was married to Nathaniel Thompson before October, 1764, when Cornelius mentioned his daughter, Anne Thompson, in his will. Nathaniel’s forename is identified in a Brown Family bible that reports a marriage to a daughter of Nathaniel and Anna Dabney Thompson. Cornelius gave one shilliing to each of three of his sons-in-law in a codicil to his will, but Ann’s husband was not included. The aim of the token gifts was probably to protect his daughters’ bequests legally or morally against the custom of coverture. If correct, this indicates that Anne (Dabney) Thompson’s husband was deceased when the codicil was signed 5 Nov 1764.
      Nathaniel Thompson/Thomson was listed as a land processioner in St. Paul”s Vestry Book from 1759 to 1784. He purchased 33 1/2 acres from John Street in December, 1789. He was listed in the Hanover land tax rolls with 342 acres from 1783, the earliest available record, through 1804, after which, his entry changed to Nathaniel Thompson estate, indicating his death in the second half of 1804 or the first half of 1805. The estate entry continued through 1808, probably for the support of Ann and their children. In the personal property tax lists, he was charged with about 2-18 slaves and 3-6 horses. Another Nathaniel Thompson, who may have been a son appeared in 1803 with 200 acres and continued through 1824, when he was taxed on 866 acres. A daughter, Mary, married Bezaleel Brown. [5]
