 Chapter 9: The Chiles Family (also Peatross Ancestors)
 "Henry Chiles, possibly the oldest child of Henry Chiles and his first wife, of New Kent County, was born, probably, in 1698. He was baptized on November 13, 169- in St. Peter's Parish.(40) Henry married Anne Harrelson, the daughter of Paul Harrelson (41) whose land adjoined that of Henry's father. Paul Harrelson died in Hanover County, and his will was probated April 1, 1734. Since his will was written in 1718, and he named his daughter, Anne Chiles, it would be assumed that she and Henry Chiles had married before that time.
  Henry and Anne continued to live in Hanover County for a time. Henry's name was listed in the processioning returns, in 1732, 1739 and 1743. He was not listed again in 1753. He must have lived on the home plantation, for his name was listed in the processioning returns, following the name of Paul Harrelson.(42)
  In 1735, he was identified as Henry Chiles, planter, of Hanover County, when he sold 270 acres in Hanover County to Ambrose Hundley. (43) Anne relinquished her dower. Henry apparently owned land in Amelia, Goochland and Brunswick counties. (44) Henry and Anne later lived in Amelia County.
  Henry and Anne had children: Henry, John, Paul, Anne, Susannah and Elizabeth Chiles. Their names appeared in the above order in Henry's will written on June 27, 1746. His will was recorded in the Amelia County court on March 20, 1746 and his wife, Anne was given the administration of his estate. (45) Their son, Henry, later lived in Bedford County, dying there in 1762. Sons, Paul and John, later lived in Halifax County, and it was there that Anne later lived. (46)

 John and Ann Ward made their home south of the Roanoke River in Halifax County, near the mouth of Otter River, on land adjoining a brother, Paul Chiles, and their mother, Mrs. Anne Harrelson Chiles
  Page 66
 Mrs. Anne Chiles Ward was reared in eastern Virginia, where life was more gracious than on the frontier, and where the stores of the tobacco merchants were easily accessible, carrying newest London goods and fashions. She was a woman of great beauty, which is a cherished tradition among her descendants today. Her family of five sons and twin daughters, Anne and Agatha, was complete before she came into the Roanoke Valley, her youngest son, Henry, being a small child at the time. But like other members of her family, Anne�s life was tragically short, and she did not live to enjoy the handsome home which her husband built for her with so much care and thought. She was buried in the garden graveyard at River View, the home plantation of her brother Paul Chiles, who had died in 1761 and where her mother was also laid to rest.
