Joseph Callaway,

Son of Joseph Callaway.Possibly the husband of Anne Browning- The last deed, below, caused some to surmise Joseph was married to the daughter of Francis Browning and that Joseph named his son, Francis, after Anne’s father.
Joseph Callaway Sr.'s name appears in Virginia Patent Books. John Medor was granted 640 acres of land in Rappahannock County, south side of Rappahannock River on Beaverdam Swamp for transporting four persons: Jno Chambers, Joseph Callaway, Robert Duell and John Warrener.On April 21, 1690, Joseph Callaway and Robert Duell appear on another importation list where Dugwell Ferson was granted 63 acres in Middlesex County, VA by the west branch of Parretts Creek.The explanations for appearing on two different importation lists include returning to England or some other Colony or possibly some sort of fraud.On April 10, 1700, Joseph Callaway bought 77 acres in Essex County from John McDuffy (Essex Deed Book 10, p30)Joseph appears on the Essex County Quit Rent Rolls of 1704.On July 11/12, 1711, Joseph Callaway of South Farnham Parish bought 100 acres for the sum 2,500 lbs. of tobacco, on the south side of the headwaters of Portabago Swamp in Essex County (Deed Book 13, p 424). This land was purchased from Francis Browning and his wife Rachel; it was part of a patent formerly granted to Enoch Doughty.In April 1712, a deed makes reference to Joseph Callaway's land when William Berry and his wife Margaret of Richmond County sold to Samuel Short of Essex County, 310 acres in Essex, being a part of a patent granted to Enoch Doughty for 4763 acres, and bounded by the land of Joseph Callay and that of Francis Browning, and on a head branch of Matapony (Essex County Wills and Deeds, 1711-1714, p33).On July 10, 1715, Francis Browning of St. Mary's Parish gives "for natural love and affection which I have for my well beloved daughter Anne Browning", 100 acres "where I now live", which land was purchased out of a tract formerly granted to Enoch Doughty, adjoining 100 acres sold to Joseph Callaway and land recently taken up by Jn. Sanders (Essex County Wills and Deeds, 1714-1717, p366).In 1732, Thomas Callaway appears in the Tax records of Caroline County.In 1765, Thomas Callaway and his wife Mary of Halifax County sold to Walter Dunn, a tract of land in Essex County "whereupon Joseph Callaway formerly lived."
