  • Notes 
    • From The Paynes of Virginia (citation details below):

      [Francis Payne and Susannah Jett] were reared within a half-mile of each other in homes on Muddy Creek, the present boundary between Stafford and King George Counties. The earliest record relating to him is his father's will written 1762, in which it is provided that £4 be spent on on his education. I judge from this provision that he had shown a predilection for some profession or an exceptional intelligence.

      1764 suit in Fauquier Co. by John Grant vs. Francis Payne, trespass. In the same year he was on jury in that county. 1768 he was witness for John Smith in Fauquier Co.; some of the grandchildren of these two men intermarried in 1837. 1775 Francis Payne received from Lord Fairfax a lease of 233 acres in the Manor of Leeds, Fq. Co., adjacent to William Payne on branch of South Run, in which were named his wife Susannah and son William. 22 Feb 1779 he was appointed Ensign in Fauquier Co. militia, and served about two years in the Revolution. See Auditor's Journal for 1783, Richmond, Va. 1788 he received a second lease of 90 acres in Lot 212, Manor of Leeds, Fauquier Co., in which were named his sons Presley, Jesse, and Francis. 1792 he was appointed Overseer of the Poor in Fauquier Co., an office that was performed in pre-Revolutionary days by the Vestry. In the same year he was witness for John Jett of Fauquier Co. 1801 he was again made Overseer of the Poor. 1806 he was a member of the group of Overseers of the Poor who sold the glebe of Hamilton Parish, Fq. Co., to Joseph Blackwell; other members were Augustine Jennings, John Grant, James Hunton, George Marshall, James Withers, John Marr, etc.

      1816 his administrator was his son Francis. His inventory shows considerable personal property, including ten slaves.
