"Benjamin was charged with 500 acres of land in Abingdon Parish,
and 400 acres in Petworth Parish on the 1704/5 Rent Rolls. He
may have been the son of Richard Clements who came to the colony
prior to 1636. (PB 1, p. 370) 16 Sep 1683, Abingdon Parish,
Benjamin Clements 150 acres on east side of the road that goes
under the hills and adjoining Major Burwell, Thomas Morrell.

"She was probably Sarah Elizabeth DABNEY, w/o John DABNEY re
1670? d after 1719. (from DABNEY family information) he d before
Jan 1702/3 summer of 1702."
"II. Elizabeth Dabney((2)), married Col. William Winston, of
Langaloo and Rockcastle, Virginia. Issue:
I. Elizabeth L. Winston((3)). Married Col. Peter Fontaine, son
of Rev. Pierre Fontaine, the original settler."

CONFLICT: "We both agree with Anthony's b/d dates of 1695 and
1757, and we both agree with a birth date of Peter b. 1774 who
married Mary Taylor. This is where the conflict exists because
I don't believe that the Peter who married Mary Taylor could
have been Anthony's son because Anthony died 17 years before
this Peter was born. I then make the assumption that there has
to be another generation between Anthony and the Peter who
married Mary Taylor. With this in mind,
I then turned to "Genealogies of Virginia Familes" Vol. V, p.32,
1982, which talks about the Thornton Familes by W.G. Stanard who
lists; "39.Peter4 (Anthony3, Francis2, William1), of "Ormesby,"
Caroline county, married Ellen Bankhead. Issue 80, James
Bankhead5; 81, Peter5, 82, Winifred5, married Sterling Thornton;
83, Elizabeth5, married Joseph Pollard."
Then on page 40; "81, Peter5 (Peter4, Anthony3, Francis2,
William1) of "Rose Hill", Caroline county, born 1774, died
September, 1883. He married ______Taylor. Issue 147, Edmund6,
This is why I have a Peter with the wife of Ellen Bankhead the
son of Anthony Thornton b. 1695 and Winifred Presley, and Peter
with the wife of Mary Taylor is the grandson of Anthony Thornton
and Winifred Presley."
