5. Will, 20 Dec 1727, Surry County, Virginia Colony. 943 The will says "In the name of God Amen, I George Hagood of Surry County being Sick and Weak but in Perfest Sense and Memory do make and Ordain this my last Will and Testament first Whensoever it shall plese God to take me out of this Mortall Life, I give and bequeath my Soul to God my Creator and my body to the Earth from Whence it Came in Certain hope of Resurrection and for What Worldly Estate it hath Plesed God to Possess me With, it is my desier that it be deposed of as followeth after my Just depts be paid.

Given under my hand and Seall this 20th day of Decbr. 1727." Witnessed by Wm Rookings and Thomas Clark.

6. Will. 944 In regards to the will of George Hagood, Mr Jonathan B Butcher, a professional researcher who did much of the research on the Hagood family in Virginia, says "To see why this will is misleading it is necessary to understand somewhat of the laws and customs of the time. Virginia law in the colonial era very strongly favored the customs of primogeniture, by which all lands belonging to a deceased person passed intact to the eldest son, unless otherwise bequeathed. Because it was thus presumed that the eldest son would inherit the land we sometimes find Wills where neither this son or the land is mentioned. This is apparently the case here, for George did not bequeath his land in the will, but later we find that this land was inherited by William Hagood. Thus the purpose of the will was merely to bequeath the personal property, particularly the testator's guns."

7. Story. 942 George Hogwood (Sr) was born in Surry Co, VA, son of Francis Hogwood and Elizabeth Creed. He was still a minor at the time of his father's will (Jan 1676) and probably quite young at the time, as careful directions are given for his care. He supposedly lived all his life in Surry Co, VA, but with no proof of having owned land in that county. He married Ann.

8. Story. George Haywood, Sr., b. ca 1670, d. 1727, son of Francis Hawkwood/Hogwood. Married Ann, ca 1690. Issue: William, b. 1690/1700; George Jr., b. ca 1695/1700; John, b. ca 1700/1705; Francis, b. ca 1705/1710; Richard, b. ca 1710/1712 (from research by James Haywood, sent to me by Brenda McLendon)
