No records of William, or his wife or widow have been discovered after 1711, as of this writing. It is certain that he married and had at least three and possibly four sons. As early as 1723, the estate of William West was settled by Arthur Whitehead in Isle of Wight County. In 1726 Barnaby Thomas, the son of William Thomas of Isle of Wight, bought 250 acres of land from Lazarus Whitehead. Also an inventory was returned for the estate of Robert Whitehead of Surry County, Virginia, in 1731 It seems positive that Arthur and Lazarus were sons of William, and probable that Robert was also, for no records of any earlier Whiteheads in this area exist than those already given. The names of the first two, and those of their later descendants, further confirm their being the sons of William, The existence of another son is clear in the will of Arthur Whitehead dated 12 March 1744, in Southampton County, Virginia, wherein he mentions his brother William as one of the executors. This brother and another brother Lazarus were witnesses to this will.
