William1 Ainsworth was born c1690 in Virginia, and died 1759 in Cumberland Co North Carolina.

He married Jennet / Janet

The first mention of William and Jennet is in the 1735 court record of the will of William Patterson of Accomack Co Virginia. They were not mentioned in the will but appeared in court to testify that although they had the legal right to inherit, they would not contest the will.

In William's will written in 1757, he mentions his wife and three sons, Levin, William Jr. and James Patterson Ainsworth. James Patterson later was in Burke Co NC and William was in Moore Co North Carolina.

Alternate spellings were Janet and Jeanette on various sources. Her last name is unknown but there is reason to believe that it might have been Patterson

Generation 3
Levin2 Ainsworth, Sr., born c1735 in Virginia or North Carolina, and died before 1800 in South Carolina

Levin Sr. sold land in both Cumberland Co NC and in Moore Co North Carolina in 1767
