    You will find this person with a middle name of Posthumous all over the web. That is because he was born after his father passed. In his father's will, his father refers to this unborn child.[1]

    Francis Settle was born about 1622-1623 in Yorkshire, England. He married firstly Elizabeth Unknown in 1658 and secondly, Mary Williams about 1702. He died on Totusky Creek, Richmond Co., Virginia in 1707.[2][3]

    Francis was transported before 1657 by William Underwood.[4]

    His wife, Elizabeth was mentioned in a land deed on May 2, 1665, based on that date, she must have been the mother of all of his children. With her he had four children:

    JOHN (1659 - 1738),
    FRANCIS (JR.) (1661 - 1701),
    THOMAS (1664 - 1748), and
    HENRY (1666 - 1702)

    After Elizabeth's death in 1701, he married MARY WILLIAMS (widow of RICE WILLIAMS) in 1702 and had children.

    Francis died in 1708 on his plantation on Totusky Creek in North Farnham Parish, Richmond County, Virginia, where he had made his home for approximately a half century. He lived to be 85 years of age.

    There has been speculation that Francis' first wife's maiden name was most likely a Bruce. [5]. The church of "All Saints"[6] did not record anything in their registers between 1602 and 1631. Either the church was being built or repaired, they had no priest or the registers for Barwick in Elmet were recorded at another church during that time, which is very common. To date, no evidence exits of a known last name for Elizabeth.
