Just came across your post about seeing Robert Shaw and his father's name in Chalkleys. I was doing some research about the Shaws and Blairs for my cousin and thought I would check out Chalkleys for Shaws. I created a timeline of all the Shaw events that I could find in Chalkleys and then added information that I had about my Robert Shaw family. I believe that there were three distinct Robert Shaws. The first Robert Shaw purchased 95 acres from Francis Gardiner in 1757. He later sold this land to John Woods in 1768, with wife Grace releasing her dower to the land in 1779. The administration of his estate is recorded in 1777. The next Robert Shaw marries Esther Blair in 1763, supposedly in County Antrim, Ireland. His first child is born the next year. In 1777, he agrees to purchase 375 acres of land from Robert McClanahan. By this time, six children have been born to Robert and Esther, with five surviving. In 1779, Robert Shaw receives grants to two other properties, both adjoining the land purchased in 1777, and containing 400 acres and 220 acres. And in 1793, he receives another grant for a parcel of land containing 220 acres. This Robert Shaw dies in 1799. The third Robert Shaw is son of James and apprentice of Archer Matthews in 1770. Robert is assigned a new instructor since his father "is incapable of bringing him up in a Christianlike manner" and Archer Matthews is unable to continue as instructor. It does not seem feasible that this is the same Robert Shaw that purchased land from Francis Gardner in 1757 and who died prior to 1777. Neither does it seems possible that Robert Shaw, husband of Esther, could be the same Robert Shaw, apprentice, since he is already married with at least two children in 1770. I have included the timeline below and would be interested to hear your comments. I would also be interested in any further information that you might have about the Shaws in Augusta and Rockbridge County, Virginia.
