    Notes:

    "He was five feet, five inches tall, quite slender, not a military man at all, though Washington Irving said that he did more than any other man to keep up the financial end of the army in Virginia."

    There was to be a meeting, in the Fall of 1755, in Alexandria, Fairfax County to chose a delegate to represent the county in the House of Burgesses at Williamsburg. As it rained on the particular day appointed Col. George Washington (23), who was  just a few month's "flush with the laurels of Braddock's Field," assumed that the meeting would be postponed. Washington's  regiment at the time was still at Fort Cumberland. Next day he showed up for the meeting and was outraged that  it had in fact gone ahead and that the assembled gentlemen and planters had made a selection without him being present. There was a heated argument between him, representing the losing candidate, and William Payne, representing the successful. In impetous anger the Colonel referred to William Payne as something other than a southern gentleman. The small and slender William (31) instantly took his hickory walking stick and lashed out in the public square. He knocked George Washington down. Washington's officers immediately whipped out their cold irons. Washington stopped any further developments. This settled the matter for the day. Next day Mr Payne received a polite message that Washington wanted to meet him at a certain tavern nearby. He went with the feeling that there was to be a challenge to a duel. Greeting him in a friendly way Washington ushered him to a table at the back where there was a bottle of wine. He apologised for what he had said, saying he had no right to speak like that. William was deeply moved. Where upon the two men drank toasts to each others health and became friends. Some time later William visited Washington's home at Mt. Vernon. Washington introduced his wife, Martha, to the man who, he said, had the courage to attack him even though he, Washington, was a much bigger man." (Excerpted by Ken Harvey from THE PAYNES OF VIRGINIA, based on Parson Weems's "Life of Washington.")

    William married Susannah Clark 3 Feb 1747, Pohick Church, Truro Parish, Virginia. Susannah was born 17 Dec 1721, Prince William County, Virginia; died 22 Feb 1771. [Group Sheet]

    Notes:

    In 1755, on an expedition against the Shawnee Indians, Ensign Edward Payne marched with an outfit commanded by Capt. Lewis Elzey to Winchester. Members of the party had enlisted to serve 30 days. No relief arriving at the expiration of that period, some of the officers and enlisted men chose to leave. Among the group that left was Ensign Payne.
