Notes for John MULLINS I:
The will of John Mullins of Saint James Northam Parish, Goochland County, Virginia, was admitted to record 16 June 1783. It reads: "I lend to my beloved with Elizabeth Mullins all my personal estate until such time that my youngest son William Mullins shall come to be twenty one years old. I give to my beloved son John Mullins 315 acres of land, lying and being in the county of Albemarle on the waters of Moormans River. My will and desire is all the remainder of my estate be equally divided amongst the rest of my children hereafter named: Henry Mullins, Conerly Mullins, Ann Ewel, Anthony Mullins, Daniel Mullins, Jesse Mullins, Elizabeth Williams, Mary Mullins, William Mullins, David Mullins, and Francis Mullins. I do appoint and order my two sons Henry Mullins and Conerly Mullins and my well beloved friend James Allen Executors of this my last will and testament and trustees for my wife and children."

Notes for Elizabeth "Betty" CONOLLY:
In a book titled "Facets of Goochland (Virginia) County's History by Helène Barret Agee, publication date smeared out on my copy, beginning on pg. 119: (this is in the chapter on Episcopal Churches, and is referring to the Lickinghole Episcopal Church)
"An unsigned and undated record in the Canonical Parish Register, St. James-Northam Parish states 'now burying ground on River Road about 400 yards west of Whittle Creek on right hand,' This record also give the following incomplete statement: 'Whereas no deed of conveyance by John Mullins, deceased, was ever executed, etc.... This record was obviously made many years ago and it is possible that the writer intended to complete the sentence at some future time.
"On file at Goochland Clerck's Office is a deed dated November 21, 1801, executed by Elizabeth Mullins, widow of Connely Mullins, conveying to Thomas Pemberton and Joseph Pollard, Church Wardens, 'one acre of land on which the church now stands."
