More Detail on Samuel Falwell of Virgina

Surnames: Falwell Esque
1. If Samuel was b.c. 1794 and married Mary Ann Esque in Albemarles Co., VA in 1830, did he have an earlier wife? I have never found evidence that Samuel had a wife prior to Mary. I?m not sure why he waited so long to marry.

2. What were the ages and birthplaces of Samuel's children? Who and where did Andrew marry? See below.

3. Do you know what the middle initial "A" among Samuel's children stands for? Nope, not a clue, but I have seen Esque spelled ?Askew?

4. Do you know anything about Mary Ann Esque's family? Was she perhaps a relative of Robert's wife Frances, who supposedly had a French name? The only information I have about Mary?s family comes from a document I found in the Albemarle County Court Order Book 1828-1830. The order is dated May 3, 1830 and states ?Mary Esque orphan of John Esque (dec?d) having by letter made choice of James Falwell as her guardian who whereafter enter into bond and security as the law directs.? I assume that since Samuel and Mary applied for their marriage bond on the same day, that Mary was underage and needed a guardian to consent for marriage. So who is James Falwell? He may be Samuel?s father, but I have absolutely no evidence for this. James Falwell was born in Buckingham County in 1757. He served in the Revolutionary war. He was married in 1799 to Elizabeth Morgan. No record of marriage prior to this. He entered the Buckingham County Poor House in 1821 and remained there until his death in 1843 at the age of 86.

5. Can you give us any details on Samuel's marriage record to Mary Ann Esque? As wrote above, they applied for marriage bond on May 3, 1830 in Albemarle County, Virginia.

6. Can you give any details on Samuel and Roland's Albemarles Co., VA land records? I have found no records that indicate Samuel or Roland owned land in Albemarle County. However, Roland Falwell owned land on ?appo? 20 miles SW of courthouse. The abbreviation ?appo? may mean Appomattox since that would be very near the Appomattox county line. In 1840 Roland sold his part of James S. Webb to W. Gowan.

Concerning Roland Falwell:
There is no question in my mind that Roland is closely related to Robert. The Personal Property Taxes of Buckingham County indicate that Robert and Roland lived near each other in district #2 of Buckingham County. Robert first appears in 1811 living near Richard Falwell Sr, William Falwell, and Richard Falwell Jr. In 1829 Roland Falwell appears for the first time. His name appears as Roland C. Falwell. Also appearing in the 1829 Tax list are David Falwell, and William Falwell. Both Robert and Roland have left that area by 1840.
