I SAMUEL GAINER, Gainor or Gaynor, 
d. intestate in Isle of Wight Co. Va. His estate was appraised 
by John Carrell and Samuel Eldridge 9 June, 1696. 

Samuel Eldridge made his will 9 Apr. 1709 which was proved 2 May 
1709. Legacies to son William, son Samuel, dau. Elizabeth, dau. Martha, 
son William left to my loving friend Murfrey; dau. Martha left to 
Elizabeth Gaynor and if she should die before said dau. is 16, to her dau. 
Mary Gainer. Ex. friends William Hook and Roger Tarlton (Isle of Wight 
Co. wills, 1647-1800, p. 53, 52). This is the will of an old, or elderly man. 
His dau. Elizabeth was undoubtedly widow of Samuel Gainer. 
Samuel Gainer's children appear to be: 

II SAMUEL GAINER, of Tyrrell Co., N.C. (not over 50 miles from Isle 
of Wight Co., Va.), The first that I find of him is his will, in Tyrrell Co., 
N.C. 1 Oct. 1751, which was proved in the June Court 1752. His wife 
(not named but elsewhere given as Ann) and son Samuel, were Ex. He 
named his children in the order shown. His brother William made his will 
in 1746 and his sister Mary who probably lived with William made her 
will in 1751. These two in Edgecomb Co. some 40 miles from Tyrrell Co. 
Samuel Gainer's children were: 
          Samuel, m. Elizabeth Eldridge. 
          Mary Whitey. 
          Elizabeth Griffen.
