  • Notes 
    • Elizabeth Dabney was born to George Dabney I and Elizabeth (___) Dabney about November 11, 1698, in King and Queen County, later King William County, Virginia.
      According to W. P. Anderson’s Anderson Family Records, she is believed to have married Matthew Anderson, a son of Robert Anderson II of New Kent County. They had one son named George, who was mentioned in his grandfather George Dabney I’s will in 1729.
      Matthew Anderson was living in St. Paul’s Parish in Hanover county in 1731, 1735, 1739, and 1743, when he participated in the processioning of his neighbors’ lands. On December 4, 1733, Matthew Anderson, merchant, received 1126 acres from James Robertson and on the same day sold it to Henry Power of James City County. The rapid turnover of the property suggests that Matthew may have received the land as payment for a debt. He was also the grantee of a deed from Esther Penick in October, 1735.
      He represented Hanover in the House of Burgesses from 1732 to 1734. He appears to have moved to neighboring New Kent County before 1747, when he was appointed a vestryman in St. Peter’s Parish. In 1750, he was elected churchwarden, but in 1751 resigned because he planned to move out of the county. It is likely that he moved to Albemarle County, where his only child, George, was living. Matthew was a witness for three deeds in Albemarle between 1762 and 1769 and probably died there. [2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13]
