He is referred to by some genealogist as "Captain" although at this time I don't know why.
1664 - John Tarply dies and left a widow named Mary and sons James and John Tarpley. [Williams p.63/ Boddie, Vol. 1, p. 44]
About 1664/56 - Mary,
widow of John Tarpley, marries
Captain William Barber of Old
Rappahannock County. They live in Lancaster County, Virginia
period of time. Captain Barber has two brothers, Richard and
and a sister Dorothy Millicent. After his sister's death
becomes guardian of her children. We know this from documents
lawsuit with his guardianed
sons, William and Charles
same two boys are identified in the will of James Tarpley, son
Tarpley, in 1687 as his brothers and listed along with his own
brother John as executors. Since they took the last name of
this time they were apparently were adopted.

1714 - Anne Glasscock makes her will and leaves several items for her grandchildren and her daughter Anne Tarpley, 2nd or 3rd wife of Capt. John Tarpley.
1716- This is the
marriage of Capt John Tarpley II. only son.
1721- The following suit is involved with Mary Carpenter estate, the apparent former Mary Glasscock who married Thomas Carpenteer(b.1673) 13 Jan 1717. I'm not certain what this will means except that it links several families together - Glasscock, Tarpley, Barber, Griffin, Hipkins and Woodbridge. Mary (Glasscock) Carpenter apparently had a brother, Thomas, and two sisters, Anne Tarpley and Alice Griffin. Others mentioned here are apparently nieces, nephews, and brothers and sisters-in-law.
