The deposition was taken 16 June 1740 and was ordered recorded in Goochland County, Virginia 17 June 1740 (Will book 3, p. 311). The relationship with Valentine Bostick has not been found, possibly he was William's brother.
Valentine's wife was named Mary.

Note: This writer has found no evidence that Elizabeth was an Audley, the idea has been suggested by another researcher. Further research is needed.


On 7 April 1671, Charles Bostock was listed as a headright, transported to Virginia by George Pool, Richard Fastinglae, James Barningham and James Forsith. According to Virginia patent book 6, p. 352, Charles was
probably a surveyor. Virginia Settlers and English Adventurers, p. 696, lists a Charles Bostock in Burton Parish, Virginia on 8 December 1679, as owing 500 pounds of tobacco for the use of the County. The Saint
Peters Parish Register, New Kent County, Virginia lists the death of Charles Bostock on 4 January 1700/01. The same register lists a Mary Bostick who died on 7 December 1709. This Mary is believed to be the
wife of Charles. The Saint Peters Parish Register also lists the marriage of James Crump and Venicia Bostick on 14 July 1709. Venicia is believed to be a daughter of Charles and Mary Virginia (Copeland) Jantz
of Wayco, Texas, in "Copeland, Bostick, Patton and Allied Families" states that a Bostock manuscript found at the Society of Genealogists Library in London, England indicates that Charles Bostock may have been a
descendant of the Bostock families residing in London during the early 1600's. The name Charles was found in these families. In 1625, a Charles Bostock was Master of the Scriveners's Company of London and he had a son, also named Charles, born about 1606, who was a physician. The Bostock families of London seemed to have originated from Cheshire, in the area of Davenham and Tarporly. The 1704 Quit Rent Roll of Virginia shows that a John Bostock had 100 Acres of land in New Kent County and that a William Bostock had 80 acres in the same county. It seems likely that they were brothers and possibly sons of Charles and Mary Bostock. Both John and William Bostick died in Goochland County, Virginia.
