    • WILL OF JAMES LUTTRELL, dated April 27, 1780, Northumberland County, Virginia; Probated October 1, 1781, Richmond County, Virginia
      In the name of God Amen. I, JAMES LUTTERELL, of the County of Northumberland and Parish of St. Stephen's, being of sound and perfect mind and memory praise be to God, do make this my Last Will and Testament in manner and form following, that is to say; first and principally I commend my soul into the hands of Almighty God that gave it, and body to be decently buried at the discretion of my Executors hereafter named, and as touching the disposition (?) of all such temporal estate as it hath pleased Almighty God to bestow upon, I give and dispose thereof as followth.
      I leave to my loving wife FRANCES LUTTERELL, my plantation in Richmond County, during her natural life, and then to my daughter BETTY LUTTERELL, to her and her heirs lawfully begotten, and if she should die without such heirs, then the plantation to fall to my son LEROY LUTTERELL, and his heirs.
      I give to my son LEROY LUTTERELL, the plantation whereon I now live in Northumberland to him and his heirs lawfully begotten, and if he should die without such heirs, then the plantation to fall to my daughter BETTY LUTTERELL, and her heirs, and all the rest and residue of my personal estate, goods and chattels, whatsoever, I leave to my loving wife FRANCES LUTTERELL, during her natural life, and after her decease to be equally divided among son LeRoy and my daughter Betty and if either of them should die without lawfull heirs, then their part to fall to the survivors, to his or her heirs. Only my wife FRANCES LUTTERELL, and my son LEROY LUTTERELL, and RICE COCKMAN and RICHARD GRENSTEAD, full and sole executors of this my Last Will and Testament. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal the 27th day of April, 1780.
      His mark
      JAMES X LUTTERELL
      Signed published and delivered to be my Last Will and Testament in presents of us:
      RICHARD GRENSTEAD, JOS. VANLANDENHAM, and WILLIAM GRENSTEAD at a court held for Richmond County the 1st day of October, 1781.
      This will of JAMES LUTTERELL, dec'd was presented in court by FRANCES LUTTERELL, the widow of the said James, and one of the Executors therein named who made oath thereto according to law and being proved by the witnesses, it was admitted to record and on the motion of the said Executrix giving security a certificate is granted for obtaining probate thereof in due form.
      Test: LEROY PEACHEY, c.c.
      ===============
      Per his will, James owned two plantations, one in Northumberland and one in Richmond. He married Frances probably in Richmond. His sister-in-law Sarah Yeatman was born in Farnham Parish, Richmond Co. It seems likely that he left Northumberland with his brother Richard and went to Richmond to establish himself there. Probably upon the death of his father (unknown) he returned to Northumberland. It is likely he was left property there by his father.
