      The Norrises are not a line I've worked on, so I can't say anything authoritative about John Norris' wife Patience. Neither John Stephenson I (d. 1727) nor John Stephenson II (d. 1737) mentioned a daughter named Patience in their respective wills. John Stephenson I's will only mentions one daughter Mary Stephenson. It is not known for certain whom she married. John Stephenson II's will mentions daughters Elizabeth and Mary. It is shown by the will of Katherine (Wiggs) Stephenson (d. 1753) of Southampton County, VA that both daughters married Matthews men (undoubtedly sons of Hugh Matthews and Martha Johnson). I believe John II's daughter Elizabeth Stephenson was the wife of Joseph Matthews (son of Hugh and Martha), and she was my ancestor as well. Joseph and Elizabeth (Stephenson) Matthews moved to Edgecombe (later Nash) County, NC in the early 1760s, and had moved to Cumberland (later Harnett) County, NC by the early 1770s.
