Observation: This set of chancery cases is a great lesson in the laws of inheritance of early Virginia. First, the widow sought and received dower property. Then the seven children of Robert Vaughan divided up his estate. So far this is all very straight forward. Then one of the children died without being married or having children. His six siblings by their father Robert were allocated equal shares of his real estate. Personal property (i.e. slaves) follows different rules. First, the mother is entitled to a child’s share. Second, half siblings that are children of the mother, but not the father each are allocated a half share. In this case the mother had a child by a prior marriage. When Benjamin died his half sister Jane received a half share Benjamin R. Vaughan a child of Robert Vaughan died while a minor owning 176 acres. Consent decree dividing Benjamin’s share of land into six parts to each of his siblings. Each received $294.50 2/3. Slaves were divided into fifteenths with the mother Sarah and each of the sibling receiving 2/15 and Jane H. Vaughan receiving a 1/15 share. Jane H. Vaughan was entitled to 1/15 of the share as a sister of the half blood by their mother Sally Vaughan and each of the others were entitled to 2/15 share. [Note: She was Jane H. Craddock, daughter of William? Craddock, deceased. She married James Vaughan who is not a descendant of Robert Vaughan. See Amelia Co. Chancery Case 1800-025]

Sarah Vaughan died in 1839, leaving a will dated 9 May, 1839, proved 15 June 1841. Sarah Vaughan was married first to William Craddock and who had a daughter Jane H. who married James Vaughan, late of Nottoway County. Jane remarried Richard H. Jenkins. In her will Sarah gave a bequest to Albert G. and then directed her estate be divided between her 6 children. The plaintiffs interpreted this to mean the four plaintiffs, defendant Robert T. Vaughan and Baskerville Vaughan of Alabama (and to not include Jane). Her estate included property she owned outright and also a large dower estate. Asked that Baskerville Vaughan be made a defendant. The will was witnessed by Henderson F. Vaughan and Richard E. Farrer. This file only has the petition and the will without any action by the Court.
