The remainder of his personal assets are bequeathed to his wife Margaret whom he also named Executrix (See Isle of Wight Co VA)

It is not known if John UPTON, "eldest son" of Capt. John UPTON, was issue by Margaret. According to Underwood, Fothergill, John UPTON the younger died without issue before reaching his majority , and the above-referenced land was inherited by the UNDERWOOD children; research of the land is still in progress.

The phrase "daughters-in-law" as used in UPTON'S will, denoted step-daughters. Later records prove Elizabeth, Sarah and Margaret UNDERWOOD as the daughters of Margaret (see below); and although Ann WILLIAMSON and William UNDERWOOD are not designated as step-children of UPTON, Ann WILLIAMSON is documented as the sister of Col. William UNDERWOOD by a Lancaster Co VA record dated 08 Dec 1656, which appoints "Mr. William UNDERWOOD" to administer the estate of James WILLIAMSON deceased, whereby UNDERWOOD is designated as "uncle of his [James WILLIAMSON'S] orphans on the mother's side." (Lancaster Co records, 1654-1702, p. 308) The will of Elizabeth UNDERWOOD Taylor Slaughter Catlett Butler, dated 7 May 1673, and proved 16 Jun 1673, refers to "William UNDERWOOD the Elder" (William UNDERWOOD, Sr., s/o Col. Wm. UNDERWOOD & Mary (BURTON? MOSELEY?)) as her "cousin" (nephew), thus documenting her as the sister of Col. William UNDERWOOD. (Old Rappa. D&W, 1665-1677:136-43). Elizabeth UNDERWOOD Taylor Slaughter Catlett BUTLER is documented as the same who was daughter of Margaret UNKNOWN Underwood Upton Lucas by a series of records." Image.

They came to Virginia, where William died in Lancaster County about 1640. All of Margaret’s children were probably fathered by Underwood. Margaret then married Capt. John Upton of Isle of Wright. Upton died in 1651, and she later married Capt. Thomas Lucas. Margaret died sometime after 1656." Image.
