According to one source: "William Austin was born ca 1690 possibly in New Kent Co., VA. He was married supposedly twice, but the names of his wives are not of record." Another source speaks of a William Wilson Austin emigrating from Wales to American "long before the Revolutionary War, and settling in Hanover County, Virginia."
In 1724 a William Austin was ordered by the Vestry of St. Paul's Parish in Hanover Co., Virginia to help maintain a road. This is probably the same William Austin, who according to family tradition, was twice married, and had 3 sons by the first wife and one son by the second wife.
