Narrative

The book Essex County, Virginia Marriages, 1655-1900, Book O 1, p. 111, lists the widow of James Reeves, Mary, as marrying Thomas Munday probably due to the fact that they are listed along with Henry Reeves and Joseph Reeves as administrators of James Reeves' estate. However, this is questionable since the 1709 will of Elizabeth Reeves names her grandson Thomas Munday, which would seem not to be the case if Mary was her daughter-in-law. It is possible that Mary Reeves married Thomas Munday and they were administrators of her brother James' estate along with her brothers.

On 11 August 1707, a bond for 500 pounds sterling was filed by Henry Reeves, Joseph Reeves, and Thomas Munday and Mary his wife as administrators of James Reeves. John Hawkins and John Parker were securities. S: Henry (H) Reeves, Jos. Reeves, Thomas Munday, Mary (X) Munday, John Hawkins, John Parker. Witnesses were Weldon Jefferson and Salvator Muscoe. (Dorman, ed., Essex Co., VA, Deeds and Wills No. 13, 1707-1711, pp. 3, 9, 11.)

On 10 October 1707, the inventory of James Reeves was filed in Essex County. It was presented by Henry Reeves, Joseph Reeves, and Thomas Munday and his wife Mary, late Mary Reeves, administrators of James Reeves, deceased. A list of debts owed to James Reeves was filed shortly afterwards. (Dorman, ed., Essex Co., VA, Deeds and Wills No. 13, 1707-1711, p. 31, 38-39.)
