Joseph Gill b<1694 d1732 of Henrico Co., VA, wife Elizabeth. (see big chart

1721: Peter Gill & Joseph Gill his guardian against Abraham Burton, case of trespass heard by the court in August & 3 following months 1721, Henrico Co.  Why was Joseph Gill appointed guardian of a Peter Gill in 1721, and which Peter Gill was this?  This Joseph Gill has to be 21, or born on or before 1700. Therefore, this Joseph Gill must be Joseph Gill b<1694 d1732, wife Elizabeth, and this Peter Gill apparently is his son?  I do not understand the "guardian" appointment.  Maybe this is the Peter Gill brother  of Webster and Daniel who was not yet 21.  Perhaps his father, whom I believe to have been John Gill married Mary Webster, was either dead, or very ill.  This Peter Gill, guardian by Joseph, was therefore born 1701-21 (he was not yet 21 in 1721).

6 Nov. 1732, will of Joseph Gill of Bristol Parish. Sons Joseph & Peter to be executors and to divide estate between wife Elizabeth and Jacob Gill, Francis Gill, William Gill, and Ann Gill. To son William, the land I live on at 21, and if he die, to son Francis Gill. "Item. I give to my sone William the Land I now live on when arrived to the age of one and Twenty but if it should pleas God that my aforesaid sone should Dye before he should arrive to the age of one and Twenty it is my will and pleasure that my sone Francis Gill shall inherit the said Land which is my last will and Testament." Dated 19 June 1732. Wit: Wm. Halpin, Will Stiles, Mary Bligh. Recorded 6 Nov.1732. (p133 Colonial Wills of Henrico Co., VA, 1677-1737, Weisiger 1976, but quoted text is from Mr. Rowland's book, and from the actual handwritten will.) Clearly William was not yet 21 in 1732, while it would appear that Francis was 21 in 1732, so Francis was born <1711, William between 1711-32. (p133 Colonial Wills of Henrico Co., VA, 1677-1737, Weisiger 1976)

Children in will: Joseph Gill, Peter Gill, Jacob Gill (not explicitly stated as son, just heir), William Gill, & Francis Gill, Ann Gill (explicitly stated as heir not daughter).
