Wassell Randolph's Henry Randolph I (1623-1773) [sic] of Henrico County, Virginia and His Descendants Preceded by Short Review of the Randolph Family in Early England and Elsewhere (Memphis: Cossitt Library, 1952), p. 27, states: "Henry Randolph, soon after his first wife's death, commenced to court Judith, daughter of Henry Soane, Speaker of the House of Burgesses."

Jonathan Daniel's The Randolphs of Virginia, p. 23, states that William Randolph became Henry Isham's friend and "suitor for the hand of his daughter Mary. She was described as a 'much courted belle' who played a lutelike musical instrument called a cittern. . . She brought to William important colonial connections. Also she came as the principal heiress of her father."

A sea captain, Isham Randolph was educated at William and Mary College. He married his second wife, Jane Rogers, in London. A Randolph descendant described Thomas Jefferson's grandmother, Jane (Rogers) Randolph, as óa stern strict lady of the old school, much feared and little loved by her children. ó See Fawn M. Brodie, Thomas Jefferson: An Intimate History (New York: Bantam Books, Inc., 1974, repr. 1979), pp. 34, 681.
