Allied Family Topic WD

 WD   Daniel Winn (c.1715-1799)
Although I am not a descendant of Daniel Winn, some of his descendants married into my family. Consequently, I have devoted Allied Family Topic WD to his family.

Daniel Winn, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, Daniel Winn might describe his life as follows.

I was living in Prince George County when I bought a couple of farms in Lunenburg County: 100 acres below the falls of Hounds Creek in 1752 and 400 acres on both sides of Falls Creek in 1754. 
I had relocated to Lunenburg by 1762 when Thomas Winn sold me 1,497 acres on the south side of Little Hounds Creek and both sides of Great Hounds Creek.  I added 817 acres by patent in 1770. 
My wife was Sarah, but the identity of her parents is unknown. We had a big family. Our daughter, Martisha, had to share the house with 9 brothers.
As was the Colonial tradition, I gave land to my sons as they came of age: 325 acres to Alexander in 1776 and about another 220 acres in 1781,  400 acres to William in 1776,  300 acres to Elisha in 1781,  a tract to Thomas in 1781,  and 200 acres to Erasmus in 1781.
Since I had already provided for my children when I prepared my will 23 April 1789, I left my entire estate to son Joseph and appointed him sole executor. 

Sarah relinquished her dower right when Daniel sold about 300 acres on Falls Creek in Lunenburg County to John Winn 23 July 1768 and 325 acres to Thomas Winn 13 April 1769. 
The 1765 tithable list enumerated Daniel with 9 tithables, including sons Joseph and John, and charged him on 1,597 acres.  In 1769 Thomas and Elisha were enumerated in his household and he was charged on 972 acres.  Sons Erasmus, Alexander, and William were there in 1772.  He and his sons continued to appear in tithable lists in 1772, 1775, 1775, 1776.  Daniel paid taxes on one poll and 9 slaves in Lunenburg County in 1782,  and was head of a household of two whites and 12 blacks there in 1783.
