  • Notes 
    • Augustine produced a license to practice law in Jul 1742 and again qualified for practice in Oct 1746. As early as 18 Oct 1742 he settled in Surry County giving the name "Windsor" to his new home. He took the oaths as a major of foot in the militia on 21 Nov 1749 and again on 18 Aug 1752. He qualified as vestryman of Albemarle Parish on 21 May 1751 and was Burgess for Surry County from 1748-54. On the creation of Sussex County he took the oaths as colonel of milita on 9 Sep 1754 and as County Lieutenant on 19 Mar 1767. He served as clerk of Surry County, beginning 20 Jun 1749, and of Sussex County, 1754-76, until he was succeeded by his son William. After that he served as deputy clerk. On 29 Nov 1777 he was appointed one of several residents of Sussex County to execute the Act for clothing the troops of Virginia on Continental service. In 1779 he was elected State Senator but was declared ineligible since he was county clerk.
