Notes  Joshua Wynne, youngest son of Colonel Robert Wynne was a Justice in Charles City, February 23, 1698; member of the House of Burgess, 1702-04; and after Prince George was cut off from that County he was Sheriff of Prince George 1705 and 1711. In 1708 Mayor Joshua Wynne and Mary, his wife, deeded a tract of land in Surry. It is thought that Joshua Wynne was killed by an Indian. When his estate was probated on the 30th March 1715, by his son, Peter Wynne, it showed debts of Ls 283-16-6 Sterling. After his death, Mary Jones Wynne, married William Randolph. (From "Adventures of Purse and Person" p. 364.) One interesting story about Joshua Wynne, says that in late August 1711 there was an alarm throughout the James River counties. Rumor had it that 15 French war ships were entering the River. The militia officers donned their uniforms, lit their bonfires, leaped on their horses and dashed to Westover for news. William Byrd II said Major Wynne "had his holster at his girdle and an armor bearer that carried his pistol, which made a good figure." But, "The ships were English, just as I suspected, and everything seemed quite again, thank God," Byrd reported.
I was not sure which Mother was Mother of "Youngest child".
Francis may be another child. See Adventurers of Purse and Person page 365.
I am hoping this is Col. Robert Wynne of Jordan's Parish Charles City.
Joshua was not mentioned in will of this Robert.
Another record shows he died Prince George Co.Va.
