January 9, 1715: By this time, Martha Thomlin Gouldman Winston had inherited Mahockney from her mother. She and her second husband William Winston are mentioned in the will of her first-marriage brother-in-law, Francis (brother of her deceased first husband Edward Gouldman). Note that Francis wants her, her husband Winston, and his own brother-in-law Thomas Waring to settle up any dispute. For the next fifty years Mahockney would be in various pieces involved with the Waring family.
