Note:
Hello Mike - tracing your "Brent Theory" as to the Giles Carter of King George County VA. Excellent work - thanks for confirming my guesses about the "invasion" from Maryland. Thought I should pass this along - you mentioned the Carters of Lancaster, and we can report that there were two lines of Carter - first cousins - Robert King and Capt. Thomas, and both lines are rather well documented. Giles and William were not from Lancaster! Thing is, two years ago I would have sworn my wife was a descendant of the "plain" Charles of the Capt. Thomas line. Part of our notes:

We then find a proven distinction between our Charles and his distant cousin, the Col. Charles Esq. above, the oldest son of Robert King. Pages 163 and 164 of the Stafford County, Virginia Will Book show us that our Charles paid rent for the years 1746 to 1750 inclusive, to the Estate of Capt. William Brent. Remember - Charles got two female slaves, but no land (his older brothers survived and received their allotments). There are then separate entries of expenses in this same estate to Col. Charles Carter "Admr. of Colo. Henry Fitzhugh" [see Wilkinson Patent, Section 5.], demonstrating a clear distinction between the two distant cousins. Furthermore, in 1752, George Bush, our (plain) Charles Carter and Peter Cash (see Section 5.), all tennants of the Brent estate, return the Appraisal of the inventory of the estate of Thomas Eaves, another tennant.

If we follow through on the Brent Estate, we find that our Charles was situated on that neck of land between Aquia Creek and the Potomac, just below the town of Aquia and the Aquia Church of Overwharton. There is a Widewater Beach on the Aquia on today's maps.

"They Called Stafford Home; The Development of Stafford County, Virginia, from 1600 until 1865"
By Jerrilyn Eby, Heritage Books, 1997:

"We don't know when the first Richland [the old Brent home] was first built. The 1742 Quit Rent Rolls charged William Brent's executors for 7,452 acres. This William (1710-1742) was the son of William Brent (died c. 1709) and Sarah Gibbons, who later married Alexander Scott of Dipple. It was this second William's son, William Brent (1733-1782) of Richland, who married Eleanor, the second daughter of the Carrolls of Marlborough, Maryland. This William paid taxes on 6,952 acres, according to the Quit Rent Rolls for 1773-1776. He served as a justice for Stafford in 1781 and was listed in 1785 as owning 56 slaves, 30 horses, and 50 cattle.
It was to Richland that Father John Carroll sailed from England, landing at Aquia on June 26, 1774. His was reputed to be the last vessel to leave an English port bound for America prior to the outbreak of the Revolution. Father Carroll preached to the Catholic parishioners at Widewater, then moved to Rock Creek where his mother lived. He often returned to visit and preach at Richland".

We should mention that King George and Stafford Counties are right next to one another, and that they swapped some territories when they realligned: "Across the county, on the Rappahannock, a new settlement had developed Fredericksburg. In 1727 the town which was known as Falmouth was granted a charter. This prosperous little community was then a part of King George County which was added to Stafford in 1778 when a swap of territory was arranged to improve the workability of the two counties".

Prince George's County, Maryland Land Records 1780-1784; Liber FF 1 {Abstract by Mike Marshall}; Page 242. At the request of Humphry Belt the following Depositions was enrolled August 28, 1782
on April 13, 1780 I was at John Watkins in Anne Arundel County, Maryland when Clement Hill, Jr. bought a black horse that Mr. William Brent had sold to John Brogden. After some time Mr. Hill desired me to calculate how much tobacco 300 guineas would come to at 20 shillings sterling per hundred and having done so Mr. Hill desired me to fill a bond for the tobacco and when finished Mr. John Brogden was called to sign. When Mr. Brogden came in he said the tobacco are to have been settled at the guinea per hundred and Mr. Hill replied you know the tobacco is no part of the contract and it will make no difference to you if the tobacco was settled at 10, 20 or 30 per hundred as you are to pay 300 guineas for the horse and the bond is taken in tobacco only to prevent (in case of your death) the making of a tender and continental money. Mr. Brogden said it was very true and sign the bond but I did not hear anything of one year's interest being given up nor did I hear anything of the money not being called for until tobacco was at a guinea per hundred when I signed the bond has an evidence. John Waring
August 31, 1782; John Waring made oath before me that what is contained in the above deposition is just and true and I further certify that Mr. Humphrey Belt one of the executors of John Brogden, deceased and Mr. Daniel Carroll Brent one of the executors of Mr. William Brent, deceased were both present at the time of taking the said deposition. Sworn before David Craufurd
April 12, 1780; Mr. William Brent, deceased came to my house from Queen Anne and informed me that he had parted with his horse to Mr. John Brogden for 300 guineas, the said Brogden was to give his bond for the guineas in the horse was to be sent with me to John Watkins the next day or Mr. Brogden was to meet me and give me his bond. I informed Mr. Brent that he had better not take the bond for guineas as Mr. Brogden might at any time pay him and continental money. It was sometime before I could prevail with him not to settle that way. I at last got him to go with me to Marlborough and asked Mr. Rogers who informed me that the bond would not be taken so as to prevent the tender if taken in money. Mr. Brent then desired I would take the bond for tobacco in mention at the time the reason why it was taken so which I did and Mr. Brogden promised to pay it off in guineas or gold or silver to the value I have asked Mr. Brogden to our altered the bond from tobacco to 300 guineas or the value in other gold or silver 2 or 3 times and he is always promised me he would do it and did a point to come to my house on last Easter Monday or Tuesday to alter the bond but disappointed me. I saw him on the day his brothers horse ran a race at Marlborough with Mr. Fielder Bowie's horse. He then mentioned the affair to me and promised he would soon come and alter the bond from tobacco. I waited on Mr. Brogden at his brothers house on December 18, 1781. He then was ill in his bed I showed him a letter from Mr. Daniel Brent informing me that his father desired I would get the bond immediately altered. Mr. Brogden on reading the letter told me he would and would ride to my house and alter the bond. I have never asked Mr. Brogden to make the alteration but he seemed fully satisfied to do it. The day Mr. Brogden executed the bond he mentioned he had some prospect of parting with his tobacco soon and if he paid off his bond in 2 or 3 months he imagined Mr. Brent would not charge interest. I answered that Mr. Brent had not mentioned it to me. I never heard from either Mr. Brogden or Mr. Brent that the 300 guineas was not to be demanded until tobacco got to a guinea per hundred or that Mr. Brogden was to have one year without interest. Clement Hill
PGCo August 30, 1782; Clement Hill made oath before me that what is contained in the within deposition is true and just in a further certify that Mr. Humphrey Belt one of the executors of Mr. John Brogden and Mr. Daniel Brent one of the executors Mr. William Brent were present at the taking of the said deposition. John Smith Brookes
The Deposition of John Iiams aged 52 years deposeth that on April 13, 1780 Mr. John Brogden and Mr. William Brent sold his black horse, Chatham, for 300 guineas with one year credit without interest and not to demand the guineas told tobacco was at a guinea per hundred. And that sometime about February 3, 1782 this deponent was desired by Brogden to take a list of balances due on account of the said horses covering and collect about 150 guineas for that he meant to pay for the said horse and guineas, but that sometime in March following Brogden informed this deponent that he met in consequence of some ill-treatment he had received from Mr. William Brent, Jr. to pay for the horse according to the expression of the bond he had given in tobacco, when this deponent replied let that remain in your own breast. This deponent further saith that both Mr. Brogden and Mr. Brent was on the day on which the above sale was made much in liquor and further saith not. John Iiams, Jr. Sworn before me this August 29, 1782, John Smith Brookes
PGCo, August 20, 1782; John Iiams made oath before me that the deposition is just and true and I further certify that Mr. Humphrey Belt one of the executors of John Brogden, deceased and Mr. Daniel Brent executor of Mr. William Brent, deceased were both present at the taking of the said deposition.
