    Notes 
    • NO PROOF THAT WILLIAM IS A BROTHER OF ROBERT, BUT THAT SEEMS MOST LIKELY UNLESS HE IS A SON WHO DIED IN HIS 30s OR A NEPHEW. FILED HERE FOR CONVENIENCE.

      Since the Chalkley records deal with him as an adult, he must have been born in the 1740s or earlier.

      1742 - Will Quinn listed in Capt. John Buchanan's company in the muster rolls of Augusta co. [Chalkley vol 2 p. 508]

      1769: William Guin, in gaol for debt, 20 days. [Chalkley vol 1, p.490; filed with 1765/66 records, which makes me wonder if the date is right]

      11th Sept.,1769. Will Gwynn to John Cawley and Daniel Kidd, of Staunton, 6.5.6, 1 horse and several cows. Test: M. Bowyer, Christopher Graham. Delivered: Grantee, 1770. [Chalkley vol 3, p.492]

      MARCH 24, 1772. (361) William Gwinn's death abates suit. [Chalkley vol 1, p.167]

      page 488-19th of March, 1772 John Carlyle's bond (with John McCreery, John Graham) to administrator of William Gwynn. [Chalkley vol 3, p.122]

      page 512-20th of May,1772. William Gwynn's appraisement (by Robert Carlile, John Carlile, Loftiss Pulland ) recorded-one nursery of peach trees. [Chalkley vol 3, p.124]

      Cleek says Robert had a brother William & quotes Chalkley vol 3 as evidence.

      This appears to be a different William:
      William Gwin, Bath County, deposes, 25th August, 1792, that David [Gwin] bears a good character. They have lived neighbors 24 years. [Chalkley vol 2, p.16, SEP 1793 JUDGEMENTS (G-Z)
      --so this William was born before 1768 (24 yrs before 1792) and may have even been an adult by 1768, and apparently is not the same William who died in 1772. Of course this could be a mis-transcription of Willam Givens, who is listed in Bath co tax lists in 1791-1793, usually on or near the same day as David Gwin.
