A17. "Thomas Windom was the son of Thomas Windom, Sr. who died in 1720. His mother, Susannah, remarried John Norris Jr. while John Norris Sr. and William (W) Masters signed as bondsmen to guarantee their appointment as guardians of Thomas and William Windom, his sons. (Prince Georges Co., Deed Lib. I, fol. 87)"
*** John Norris Jr. was guardian of Thomas and William. His father and Wm. Masters signed as bondsmen.
A18. "William (W), along with his father-in-law, Richard Weaver, as surety, bound themselves for 50 pounds sterling to serve as administrator on this estate (PG Co. Adm. Bonds, Lib. 1, p. 94). In 1717 he served as surety for Susanna Windom, executrix of the estate of Thomas Windom. (Test. Proc: Lib. 23, fol. 160) When John Norris Jr. served as guardian of Thomas and the estate of Thomas and William Windom, sons of Thomas. Bond was given by John Norris, Jr. John Norris, Sr., and William Masters. (PG Co. Guardian Bonds, Lib. H, fol. 1104). Susanna Windom remarried John Norris (PG Co. Administration Accts., Lib. JB#1, fol. 243-44; Then came John Norris and Susannah, his wife, formerly Windom...")"
*** Richard Weaver wasn't William W's father in law - possibly his uncle, possibly his cousin (depending on generation). Mary Weaver was the supposed wife of Robert.
A19. No proof exists that Robert Masters is the Immigrant or that he was the father of William (W) Masters. A William Masters served as administrator for Robert Masters, final inventory (Md. Prerogative Ct. Inv. & Accts vol 37 (1716-17), p. 68; Prince Georges Co., Inventory Lib BB#1, fol. 261): If this William is our William (W) who died ca 1771 he could not have been the same generation as Robert, even if Robert died at a very young age. Robert had a daughter who married William Norris (as per the inventory) and had died before her father. Name unknown... but they had a son, John, who figures in the later generations.
