He was a member of the House of Burgesses for Charles City Co., VA in 1651. He was probably of the Ashton family of Spalding, Lincolnshire, England. He was descended from the Ashtons' of "Chadderton Lancashire, England.

The will of Col Peter Ashton dated 1669 willed to James Ashton, his brother of Kirby Underwood County, Lincolnshire and to John Ashton his brother of Lowell, Lincolnshire, his estate on the Potomac River.

persons to decide on a boundary line of George Worsham and John Wilson. (Henrico, an original Shire was created in 1634). Question: Is this the James Elkin that arrived in 1654? If so, why does it take 34 years to hear from him?

1681 Nov. 8th RALPH ELKIN purchased from Major Ashton, 150 acres of land in the Parish of St. Pauls, Stafford Co. Virginia, the plantation on which William Burton now lives. Land was purchased Nov. 8th 1681. (It is be-lieved that RALPH ELKIN SR. may have married a Miss Ashton.

(EE Volume III, No 3 see above) - Ralph Elkins buys land in Stafford Co, VA, from his supposed father-in- law? (21 years after Ralph marries his daughter, James Ashton finally sells land to his son-in-law? Seems strange to me, the "Devil's advocate"?

1686 August - The Will of James Ashton of Stafford County, Virginia, Gentleman, dated August 1686, willed his God child RICHARD ELKIN, a heifer with a calf by side and 100 acres of land adjoining upon John Grigsby 1/4 divdt. (EE Vol III, No 3 Page 84 Sep 1988 cont:) - In 1686 Richard Elkins, Stafford Co, VA, God-child of James Ashton, Richard Elkins receives 100 acres of land?)

Another development: See EE Vol II No 3 p58; According to George F. Tyler, Tyler, Elkins & Allied Families, p 184 (who failed to give any reference for primary sources) says "Will of Richard Elkin living in Stafford Co, VA dated 1698". Question! Has anyone got a copy of this will?

1689 Ralph Elkins, Stafford Co., VA, old and sick is relieved from paying to court and from bond of security for estate of John Hobart (Order Book, need page #) this taken from EE Vol III No 3 page 85, Sept 1988.

1690 Sept. 6th - Stafford County, VA. RALPH ELKIN will probated Sept 6, 1690. (EE Vol III No 3 page 85, Sep 1988 - In Casey's book he states that Ralph Elkin died intestate, however from Jack Elkins, See Vol I, No 2 p54, He states will dated March 1690, probated Sept 1690, son Richard was administrator. "1690 will of Ralph Elkins, probated Sep 6th, Richard administers his estate. He gives his sons Richard and Nathaniel land with houses, horses, barns, etc." per Jack Elkins. We need to see this one!

1690 RALPH ELKIN, his son Richard administers his estate. He gives to sons Richard and Nathaniel, "lands with houses, horses, tobacco, barns, etc. (this reference copied from 1726 item - Stafford Co. Order Book-1722, pge 234 under sale of land by Richard Elkin Sr. to John Fitzhugh). (NOTE* It is believed by the author that RALPH ELKIN SR. also had sons Ralph Jr. and John, however I am only using the material which has a definite reference for). The author is Olive Elkin Story and records are in the Virginia State Library, 707 E. Franklin St., Richmond, VA.

(FURTHER NOTE* On Sept. 9, 1690, John Grigsby was one of the appraisers of the estate of RALPH ELKIN, father of Richard Elkin. "He may have been related to the Ashtons' and Elkins', for in Richard Bryant's will dated 1703, April 5, bequeathed to his son Nathaniel Bryant, "all my land which I now enjoy in Virginia, his mother to live wholly upon the plantation where I now live, to daughter ELIZABETH ELKIN, 400 # tobacco and RICHARD ELKIN to give to my grandson RICHARD ELKIN, a mare (Ref.

1695 Richmond Co., VA. Richard Elkins married Mary Williams on Jan. 12, 1695-LDS Library Records. (Carol's Note* Due to the fact that this couple have a son James born and he inherits from his grandmother ((see above)), we assume that the LDS library have drawn the conclusion from the above also. (Probably married much earlier.)
