Marriage

William Bennett II must have died by 1713 since his wife (widow) Sarah was charged with having an illigitimate child in May 1713.

From the Christ Church parish records:

10 May 1713, Baptised, Ann Bennett, dau of Sarah Bennit, illigitimate

From the Court Orders of Middlesex Co Va:

"Sarah Bennit ... having a bastard child confessed the fact of her offense, it is ordered she be fined 500 pounds tobacco. John Curtis appeared and ... confest judgement for the aforesaid Fine. Sarah Bennit and James Hackney acknowledge themselves indebted to our Queen in the sum of 10000 pounds tobacco."

Sarah married George Bowden in 1714 and had a son named John. It is clear that this is the same Sarah BRUMWELL married to William BENNET because of these four records:

A. 8 Sept 1714 Married. George Bowden and Sarah Bennett

B. Middlesex County Deed Book 3 1709-1720

2 April 1717 KNOW all men by these presents that we Sarah Bowden and Peter Brumwell of Middlesex co are bound unto the justices of said county in sum of one hundred pounds Sterl, this second day April 1717.
