In Richard Washington's will, dated 09 November 1724, he leaves his daughter, Elizabeth, 200 acres of land, "where she now lives".  He also leaves his son-in-law, Sampson Lanier, 200 acres lying in the Isle of Wight.  On March 23, 1732, Sampson sold the 200 acres left to him by his father-in-law to the Vestry of Nottingham Parish, currently Southampton County, Virginia.  On February 19, 1734, Sampson and Elizabeth sold the 200 acres of land given to her by her father.  Some time before 1740 they moved to Brunswick County,, Virginia.
