Thomas Savage III
Thomas was born circa 1688 at Northampton Co, VA. He was the son of Thomas Savage (II) and Bridget Robinson. Thomas was named in his father's will on 10 November 1721 at Northampton Co, VA. He was shown as a son Thomas in the will of Thomas Savage Sr., wife Bridget..1 Thomas witnessed a will on 15 December 1729 at Northampton Co, VA. It was on this date that Luke Johnson, John Smith, Jonathan [J] Savage & Thomas [I] Savage witnessed the will of Nathaniel Savage, wife Sarah, daughter Ansley..2 He made a will on 25 October 1747 at Northampton Co, VA. To my dau. Mary Johnson n. girl Tamar. To dau. Rhody Kellum n. girl Hannah and horse called "Biard". To dau. Agnes Joyne n. girl Sabro and horse "Batchelor". To my grandson Thomas White the colt that came of my son Thomas' mare. Also to my grandson Thomas White, Thomas Savage's oldest saddle. To Redicle Turner 500#t and all she has of mine upon the provisor that Andrew Turner will bear the Parish harmless of the child she now goes with, or else to return back. My son Thomas resid. legatee and extr. Witt: Nathaniel Rogers, Isaac Smith..3 Thomas died before 10 November 1747 at Northampton Co, VA. It was on this date that his will was probated..3
Does this mean that Redicle was pregnant with Thomas Savage's child at the time he wrote his will? Why would "the Parish" need to be held harmless? Does "or else to return back" mean that the legacy needs to be returned to the estate if Andrew Turner were to sue?
What do you think?
