Shared note
ca 1646 - Hannah Culmer is the daughter of Thomas Culmer. 1662 - This is shown in a deed from Thomas Culmer to his daughter Hannah Lane, wife of Robert Lane Deed Book 1, page 198, 6 Nov 1662. 1666 - Hannah is mentioned in a deed dated 2 May 1666 Deed Book 1 page 276 as wife of Robert Lane. 1668 - Robert Lane's name appears on the List of Tithables for the year 1668 but is not found in the records after this date. It is assumed he died. It is believed that Hannah then married Nicholas Sessums as his first wife. It is shown in a court order Book 1671-1691 page 77 that Eliza Lane [presumably Hannah and Robert's daughter] was living in the household of Nicholas Sessums. The order reads: January 1690 - "Eliza Lane having been delivered of two mulatto bastard children which she confesseth were begotten by Nicholas Sessum's Negro man, it is ordered that the sheriff during the setting of this court give her ten lashes on her bare back well layed on and at the next court he give her ten lashes more." Hannah and Nicholas had two daughters that were recorded in Book 7 page 33. One daughter named Hannah married to William Black [Blake] and another daughter Ann married to William Williams. Nicholas and Hannah also had a son Thomas Sessoms who died before his father Nicholas. Thomas is shown on the Tithables list [1693] for Lawnes Creek Parish living in the household of his father. Hannah Culmer Lane Sessoms died before 1693 by that time Nicholas was married to Katherine [maiden name unknown]. Katherine is first mentioned in a court suit in July 1693 in Surry County along with her husband Nicholas Sessoms. Katherine is shown in May 1704 [Order Book 1691-1713] relinquishing her rights to dower on land Nicholas gave to his daughter Ann Williams and Katherine is named as wife in Nicholas will.
