Ware Family of King and Queen County, Virginia


From an old court record rescued from old papers found at Williamsburg when it was the capital of the State and the Supreme Court held its sessions there, I find Robert Spencer Ware files his age August 11th, 1789, ‘under age’ (June 11th, 1791, he is ‘twentyone years of age ‘), in an old suit brought for himself, his sister, Lydia, and his infant brother, Spencer Ware. These children are the orphans of Spencer Ware and Miss Digges, married about 1769: Robert Spencer Ware, born 1770; Lydia Ware, born 1772; Spencer Ware, born 1774, died 1804 (Spencer Ware, Sr., died 1777). From this paper we also learn that Lydia Ware married Robert Garrett of King and Queen, about 1796. Their daughter, Elizabeth Garrett (born 1802, died 1867), married Bird Hoskins (born 1800, died 1841). William Hoskins married Janet Carter Roy, December 29th, 1857.”
