Were there more than 1 Martin Martin in New Kent Co., Va.?

The Martin who married Sarah Hix in 1698 would, I assume, be about 25 years old (or b. Abt. 1674) before he married. If Sarah was 23 she would have been b. Abt. 1676. That would make her 40 years old in 1716. I think that makes it unlikely she had Thomas in 1720 and impossible to have had Lucy in 1726 when she would have been 50 years old.

It seems logical to me that a man would have to be at least 25 to have accumulated the land or ability to support a wife & family.

I would appreciate any insight on this.

There were two. Martin Martin (1675) Noted as Richard Martin Martin is one marriage record, Married Sarah Hix 10 Feb 1699 at St. Peters Parrish in New Kent.

My records show he did not aquire land unitl 1724 (He would have been 49.

The second Martin Martin (1715) was his son.

Feel free to check out my tree and see what makes sense.

I'd love to take a look at your posting, can you give me a URL or where it's at?

I have seen a note in one of the rootsweb gedcoms I downloaded that says there was a Martin Martin in Henrico Co. during the same time frame as the one in New Kent and that the death date usually give for him was the death date of the one in Henrico Co.

Thanks for the reply
