     On 14 December 1842, Edward Worthington of Nelson County, Mary Turner and William B. Turner were parties to a deed of trust with respect to Mary's personal property and her intended marriage to Edward. Mary Turner was possessed of a considerable personal estate consisting of one negro girl Amelia, and all her children, one bed and furniture household and kitchen furniture and a sorrel mare. It was agreed that William B. Turner would hold in trust this property for Mary's sole benefit until the marriage was solemnized after which Edward would have, receive, take and enjoy all the interests and profits of said property during the joint lives of Edward and Mary Worthington for the support and maintenance of themselves, family and children. If Mary died first, her husband would have the use in trust of the property for the benefit of himself during his life and for the support and maintenance of his children begotten on the body of Mary Turner and after his death to go in equal parts to their children. But, should Edward die leaving Mary then the said property was to be at her sold control and disposal. This trust agreement was signed by Mary Turner, Edward Wormington (sic) and W. B. Turner.

     On 26 Dec 1842, Terisha Turner appeared in court in Pike County to exhibit this Deed of Trust and marriage contract which was proved by the oaths of two subscribing witnesses.

     On 28 Jul 1845, on the motion of William B. Turner, trustee, this deed of Trust and marriage contract was ordered to be certified to the County of Pike in the state of Missouri in Nelson County, Virginia.2

     Edward Worthington married Mary Turner, daughter of Terisha Turner and Mary Turner, in Nelson County, Virginia.1,2

     Edward Worthington died before 14 October 1850 because his wife and child were enumerated in the household of her father.1

     Austin Wright was born between 1745 and 1749, son of Robert Wright and Mary (--?--). Lucius Wright believes the facts that Austin was named a defendant in Brunswick County Court in 1769 and purchased land in 1771 imply that he was born before June 1748.1,4
     He was also known as Augustine.5,6

     On 19 May 1770, Stephen Hatchell sold to Austin Wright, "of Mecklenburg County" 150 acres of land, "bounded by Flatt Creek, Robert Good, Ned's Branch, Laban Wright, and said Hatchell."

     This tract of land was sold to Hatchell by Laban Wright on 11 Oct 1764, 150 acres of land, "part of 386 acres patent by John Wright 10 Jan 1748, Flatt Creek, adj. Haw Branch and Rock Branch, to Stephen Hatschel" at Mecklenburg County, Virginia Colony.7

     On 10 September 1771, he purchased land in Mecklenburg County, Virginia Colony.4

     Austin Wright married Sarah Lark, daughter of Robert Lark and Mary (--?--).1

     On 11 August 1781, although he was not named in his father's will of this date, Austin ended up as executor of this will both when his brothers, Reubin and Joshua, declined. Austin's brother, Robert, acted as his security.8

     On 10 April 1782, the county court processed claims originating from the Revolution in which it noted Austin Wright for Edward Fince for 900# of beef.9

     On 4 September 1786, 'Augustin' Wright, of Mecklenburg Co., Va., sold to John Penn of Brunswick Co. for £106 a tract of 175 acres beginning 'at Walker's line where it crosses the gum branch, thence along the said line to Samuel Briggs' spring branch . . . to Stith's line . . " This indenture was signed by 'Austin' Wright and witnessed by Samuel Briggs, Reuben Wright (his brother), and Robert Wright (his father). It is this sale, which is probably his inheritance from the estate of Robert Wright, that established his connection.10

     On 9 October 1786, "The claim of Austin Wright against the public for his services in collecting cattle seventy days for Continental use, for which he received four hundred & fifty pounds in Oct 1781 is examined and allowed by the Court" at Mecklenburg County, Virginia.11

     On 22 January 1787, in this Court, an Indenture of Bargain and Sale between Augustine Wright to John Penn was proved by Reuben Wright, Samuel Briggs & Robert Wright the witnesses thereto and ordered to be recorded at Brunswick County, Virginia.12

     On 13 October 1787, Austin Wright was appointed ensign in the county's militia, with Stephen Mabry as Captain and William Blanton as lieutenant.13

     On 10 August 1790, he "brought suit against Ray Moss for trespass, assault and battery. The case was referred to the District Court, but no record of outcome has been found."14

     On 16 November 1792, Austin Wright, brother of the groom, was security for the marriage bond of Nancy Wright and Robert Wright at Mecklenburg County, Virginia, with Austin Wright, Robert's brother, as security. Robert is described as 'of Brunswick County.15,16'

     On 13 July 1795, a lawsuit "was filed by Frederick Collier, and Ann, his wife, against Samuel Lark, Jacob Fox and Elizabeth, his wife, Augustine Wright and Sarah, his wife, John Holmes, Walter Leigh, and Joshua Smith. Notation was made that Jacob Fox and Elizabeth, Walter Leigh, and Joshua Smith were not inhabitants of the Commonwealth of Virginia. This suit established that Frederick Collier's wife was Ann Lark, and that Augustine Wright's wife was Sarah Lark."17

     On 11 March 1801, Austin Wright, father of the bride, was security for the marriage bond of Martha Wright and Stephen Turner at Mecklenburg County, Virginia, with Austen Wright, father of the bride, as security.18,19

     On 8 August 1803, Austin was sued by Ebenezer McGowan for non-performance as security on a bond in the amount of £3.15.8 1/2 at Mecklenburg County, Virginia.20

     On 9 October 1804, in Austin Wright's suit against Richard Russell, "By consent of the parties aforementioned is awarded the plt to examine and take the deposition of Robert Huddleston, William Turner, Stephen Turner (this may be TT's 3rd great-grandfather]) David Moss, Joshua Wright and Phebe Wright witness in this cause of Warren County and State of North Carolina before any two magistrates of that County giving the dft legal notice of the time and place of execution of service."

     "On December 9, 1805 (in the same case): "The defendant granted permission to take the deposition of James William Daniel Pitchford, and John Baird all of Warren Co., N. C., and the plt. to take the deposition of Edmund Webb, John Baird, Thomas Newman, Daniel; Newman and Philemon Hawkins all of Warren Co., N. C."

     "A jury was finally selected to hear this case on March 11, 1806," and found in favor of the plaintiff (Austin Wright) the next day at Mecklenburg County, Virginia.21

     In July 1805, Robert and Nancy sued Austin Wright in chancery which is when they received the right to depose Mary Lark. The case appears to have been settled out of court, as no record it it appears later.22

     Before 14 October 1805, he moved from the land he had purchased from Hatchell, which was along Flatt Creek, north of the Roanoke, to land south of the Roanoke, as shown by the following road order:
     Daniel Taylor appointed surveyor of road from county line to Blanton's Ferry in room of Presley Hinton with the hands of sd. Daniel, Hinton, Amasa Palmer, Reuben Wright, Charles King, Henry King, Edward Davis, William Davis, Baxter Davis, Wms (?) Davis, Thomas H. Davis, Richard Fox, Richard Marshall, Jacob Bugg, Elijah Rideout, Edmund Webb, Wesley Webb, Edward Palmer, John Read, Walter Pennington, Austin Wright, William Hamilton, Jeremiah Griffin,Joseph King, Richard Glenn, and William S. Collier."

     "Richard Fox, (son of 1771 Richard Fox of Mecklenburg County, Virginia) sold a parcel of land inherited from his father's claim on the south side of the Roanoke River to James Blanton in 1777. Amasa Palmer's land was on the county line near the present Palmer's Spring.

     Since Richard Fox is listed in the middle of the above road order, it seems likely that the clerk went down one side of the road from the county line to Blanton's Ferry over the Roanoke and then back up the other side of the road to the county line."23

     On 11 March 1806, Austin Wright was found in debt to Presley Hinton Brothers for just over £35 at Mecklenburg County, Virginia.24

     Austin Wright and Lucy Holloway obtained a marriage bond on 1 May 1806 in Mecklenburg County, Virginia, with Francis Ballard as his security.1,25

     Austin Wright left a will dated on 11 May 1829 in Mecklenburg County, Virginia, in which he named his wife, Lucy; daughters: Rebecca B. Ferrar, Nancy Wright, Betsy Kendrick, Polly Holloway, Martha Turner, Jenny Potter, and Sally Clements; and, sons: Samuel Wright, Austin Wright, Robert Wright, and John Wright, deceased. He named his son-in-law, William H. Ferrar, as his executor.26

     He died before 21 December 1829 in Mecklenburg County, Virginia.
     Find A Grave does not have a burial listing for him as of 20 Dec 2020.26

     His estate was probated on 21 December 1829 in Mecklenburg County, Virginia.26
