2219 William Wynne was 16 at the time of his father's death. Like his grandfather, he became something of an explorer...venturing into less explored land in Western parts of Virginia William Wynne was living in Brunswick County, Virginia, from 1721 (when he testified as a Bunswick witness in a Prince George Court) to 1736. (Brunswick was formed from Prince George, and parts of it were later divided to make Lunenburg, Mecklenburg, Pittsylvania and Halifax). Because tobacco farming rapidly ruined the soil, William constantly purchase new land to the west. To find such land, William joined other explorers (including William Byrd) in 1733. Many of the landmarks these explorers found were named for them....including Wynne's Falls (which later became the City of Danville). Shortly after his return to Brunswick from the 1733 exploration, he moved his family to the Western part of Brunswick (which would later be Pittsylvania and Halifax Counties). And he bought land all through the area. In 1753, he and a Clement Reed bought 36,000 acres in Lunenburg County. We also find several of his children (John, Elizabeth & Thomas?) in Lunenburg County, apparently on land their father purchased. But in his later years, William was living in Pittsylvania on land near Danville. William was appointed by Governor Dinwiddie to help organize the nearby county of Halifax where he owned considerable property. Before his death, William had transfered most of his land to his children. WYNNE, William (I2844)
