  • Name Anna (BALLARD) 
    Gender Female 
    Name Anne (BALLARD) 
    • (1) Anna (BALLARD), aka Anna THOMAS, was not, as some sources claim, a daughter of William THOMAS; she was his wife. She married, first, Henry BALLARD, and, second, William THOMAS. She was the mother of Thomas BALLARD, Sarah (BALLARD) HERMAN and Jane (BALLARD) HILLIARD.

      (2) Thomas Ballard of James City County, Virginia (1630-1690) <>, endnote 11:

      Anna was not the daughter of William Thomas, but rather William Thomas had married the mother of Thomas Ballard, Jane Hillier/Hilliard, and Sarah Herman. We do not know the family name of Anna Ballard, although there are a couple of clues: most notably, she and a woman called Hester Hickes witnessed an indenture of mortgage between John Claxon and Nicholas Trott that was recorded 25 August 1656, York Co. Va. Deeds, Orders Wills No. 1, p. 302; this same Nicholas Trott with may have witnessed the will of Capt. Nicholas Martiau on 1 March 1656/7 (will proved 24 April 1657), with Thomas Ballard, York Co. Va. Deeds, Orders, Wills No. 1, p. 337. It is also worth noting that the name Hester Hickes appears as a headright in a Certificate for 300 acres of land taken by Thomas Ballard and assigned to William Light in 1657 (for the transfer of Joane Cooke, Morock O. Royall, Robert Strong, John Botwright, Hester Hickes, Thomas Wolfe). Deeds, Orders Wills No. 3, p. 8. Could Anna Ballard's maiden name have been Trott and Hester Hickes her sister?
