      1749, 16 Jun: At a King William Co., VA court, Ann Temple presented three writings, A, B and C, each purporting to be the will of Joseph Temple. William Temple, Gent., son and heir of Joseph, appeared and consented to enter immediately on the contestation of the wills.

      Ann swore that "A" was published at the date therof, 1744, and that "B" was not published before witnesses; after "B" was written, his daughter Hannah married, and he wished to make changes, which his son William transcribed. This transcription was "C" with which the testator was not satisfied, and a few days before he died he received news of the death of his brother, William of Bristol, England, and that his brother's estate had fallen to him. He planned to make a new will as soon as he got an account but if any accident happened to him, he had a will by him, and Ann Temple, his widow, believed that "A" was that will.

      William Temple declared that he knew nothing of "A"; however, Elizabeth Jones, a witness, swore to "A" and it was received as the testator's will.


      1781, 11 Dec: Ann Temple wote her will. Names granddaughter Mary Gwathmey and her daughters Sarah, Mary and Patty
      [NOTE: These could not be daughters of gdau. Mary because Mary was b. 1770]; granddaughters Ann Tompkins, Ann Bell, and Ann Elliot; son William's daughter Ann, son Joseph's daughter Ann, son Liston's daughter Mary, son Benjamin's son Robert and son Samuel's daughter Ann. (4) Named sons Joseph, Benjamin and Samuel Executors.
