Littleberry

My ancestor William Rowlett, who died in 1735, married Frances Worsham, the granddaughter of William Worsham and his first wife Elizabeth Littleberry.

This family is somewhat hypothetical, since no one can prove that Elizabeth, the wife of William Worsham and the of Francis Epes, actually had that maiden name.

10 Elizabeth Littleberry must have been born in the late 1620s. She married William Worsham soon after he arrived in Virginia, probably in the early 1640s, and lived with him on his plantation at Bermuda Hundred in Henrico County (now Chesterfield County). They had five children before he died, in or about 1657. She then married Francis Epes II and had three more children by him. She died in 1678, that is, roughly at the age of 50, leaving two wills, one for her Worsham children and one for her Epes children. One of her sons was named Littleberry Epes. (The Epes family owned Hopewell, the plantation located where the city of the same name now stands.)
