William Doggett was a planter of substance in Lancaster County. He first appears in county records as a claimant for supplies furnished for use of the military forces during the Revolution. In June 1781 he was paid 9 pounds, 10 shillings, 18 pence sterling for bacon furnished the militia guards, and in June 1782 he was paid one pound, 7 shillings sterling for 3 gallons of brandy. In the 1783 tax list, William was assessed for 9 white and 8 black tithables. As William and his four elder sons were of taxable age, it would appear that he had not only eight slaves, but also four indentured servants. In 1785, he was assessed for 9 white tithables, one dwelling and five other buildings.
William was married first to his first cousin, Betty Doggett. No marriage bond or return exists for the marriage of William and Betty, but the marriage must have taken place in the early 1760's. An 1801 deed from Benjamin to his brother James clearly establishes that William's first wife was the daughter of Benjamin and Ann (Emerson) Doggett. Betty apparently died about 1780 and William married again. His second wife was Judith Robb and a Lancaster County marriage bond dated 15 September 1785 is of record. William and Judith had three children.
William died in October 1795, leaving his wife Judith and their three small children at home. William left a will executed only a few weeks prior to his death in which he left various parcels of land to his four older sons and divided the rest of his estate to all his children except the two oldest sons, Benjamin and George, who apparently were well situated on their own plantatiions. It is interesting that William does not mention his wife Judith or their three children in his will. The devises of real property made to the four older sons apparently created some title problems, as a number of deeds are of record clearing up some ot these problems. These will be discussed in connction with the various sons.
The three younger children, and perhaps Judith also, moved from Lancaster County to the Fredericksburg area after the death of William, perhaps about 1809. A deed dated 15 May 1809 is of record in Lancaster County releasing her dower interest in the home plantation which William devised to his son James.
A great deal of the information which we have about the descendants of William is from an opinion of record in a Lancaster County lawsuit involving a small parcel of land belonging to the estate of David Chilton, a grandson of William's son George. This case, Doggett v. Kem, is interesting and will be discussed elsewhere.
