      **********

      Andrew lived in Westmoreland County, Virginia. He was a Capt. (one reference says Major) in the Scots Army and a Judge or Justice of the Peace. He owned large estates and numerous slaves. In 1705, he made a deed for 3 acres to John Hore, part of a tract patented by his father in 1652.

      Andrew was married three times, but only had children by his second wife, Eleanor Spence (or Spens).

      His first wife may have been the daughter of Thomas Bowcock, Sr., of Westmoreland County, and Jane Bowcock. She was the sister of Margaret Bowcock, who married her husband's brother, William Monroe. Her mother, Jane Bowcock, married (2) Thomas White after the death of Thomas Bowcock. She had no children.

      His second wife, Eleanor, was the daughter of Lt. Patrick Spence (1633-1684) and Dorcas, his wife. Dorcas married (2) John Jordon, who died 1696. Dorcas died in 1708, leaving a will in which she mentions her daughter, Eleanor Monroe and other members of the Monroe family. Eleanor's first husband was James Bowcock.

      Andrew's third wife, Sarah Foxhall, was the daughter of John and Martha Foxhall of Pope's Creek, Westmoreland County, Virginia, and the widow of John Elliott. Sarah's granddaughter, Martha Sturman [3725], by her daughter, Sarah Elliott, married Jordon Weedon [3724], the nephew of Andrew, her second husband. (Follow that if you can.)

      When Sarah's first husband, John Elliott, died in 1708, she was left with four minor children. She had no issue by her second husband, Andrew Monroe.

      Andrew's will is dated 30 Dec 1713 and proved 26 May 1714. The Johnson reference says he died Nov 1735.

      Error alert: The Cochran reference says Andrew married Christine Tyler, but it is believed that Christine married another person named Andrew Monroe. The same reference lists Spencer Monroe (who married Elizabeth Jones) as one of Andrew's children. Elizabeth Jones actually married Spence Monroe who was the son of the Andrew Monroe who actually did marry Christian Tyler.
