At the request of John Beale Jr, the following deposition was recorded on Feb 4, 1748[/9].
Richard Beale of Essex County, Virginia, aged about 46, deposes that either in Jun or Aug, 1723, at Marlborough, he, the sd Richard met with John Diggs & offered sd Diggs to divide between sd Diggs and sd Beal the land his father recovered of sd Diggs called Durham, which sd Diggs refused. This deponent further says that he offered Diggs 30,000 lbs tobacco for his right, or else to divide [it] between them. Sd Diggs said he would not sell it except he sold all the land he had joining it to it. This deponent said that he was not able to buy it all, but thought he had a right to what his father had recovered, but that Diggs, having more money than this deponent, he was willing to sit down with half and to settle law suits cease. Diggs answered that this deponent was mistaken, and that if he would go home with him, he would show him his right. This deponent answered that he did not understand the law, and to show him his papers should signify nothing. This deponent says further that Mr. John Diggs offered to buy his right, to which this deponent says he told Diggs he did not care to sell. Diggs said that sd Richard might as well have something for it, for he was well satisfied his father did not intend to let him have any of it, as long as he lived, & he was as likely to live as this deponent .. oath he uses in your favor, and you were to have when you came to age, which your father suingment to Mr. Bordly and Mr. Dullany and got a skin of parchment and got the Actners Drawer over and his own name put in it and by this means, especially Mr. Bordley, got Mr. Hart to sign it, quite contrary to the intent of both houses, which Diggs said was a very roguish action. This deponent says that his father showing him such foul play and doing so unfairly by him was the only inducement for him to sell his right, resolving that he would have something and not his father have all. This deponent further says that at Marlborough, before the conveyance was signed, his father, Mr. John Beal, came into the house where we met to sign, viz, Mr. Wm Diggs, Mr. John Diggs, Wm Middleton, myself, and the 2 Justices, Mr. Robert Tyler and Mr. Thomas Sprigg. My father used many arguments to persuade me to not to sign until he had taken advice, which Mr. John Diggs opposed, threatening to sue my bond that I had given him for 1000 pounds, if I did not then & there sign. But when my father, by his arguments, had almost persuaded me not to sign, Mr. William Diggs called this deponent aside and told him he would advise him to sign, for if he didn't, he was sure his brother would sue his bond, to which this deponent replied that he was not willing to sign now, and thereby have his father's curse, to which sd William Diggs answered, you are past a child and are your own man. Your father's curse will be nothing to you. I will reconcile your father to you and will give you a pistole if you will sign now, which he did then and there put into deponent's hand. This deposition taken Jun 12, 1728 before us - Geo: Dent, Robert Yates.

I must Own that I was exceedingly Surprizd (when I Saw the wart) at Pattersons Infidelity to his Employer. The tract adjoining this land contains 400 a. on which the Plantation is Settled & is so circumstanced it would not Subsist being cut off from the Creek so that if Patterson had got the Deed, he needed not have Valued his Lord, for whoever has the Marshes can force the Owner to buy or Sell on his own Terms. I wrote you before you went to WffiSburg by Doctr Green & now repeat lest it may have Slipt Your memory. I request Deed be made out in my Name to hold during my Life, with a remainder to Charles Earle of Tankerville, which is agreeable to my Bros will. P.S. 21 ffeb. 176 5 - Since I wrote the within, the weather Set in So Cold that I could hear of no Body til now going your way. You will please to take Notice, a Deed to Ld Tankerville alone will not Suit me, for his Agent may pretend a Deed may be ? to my present Right, & so maliciously set some Rascal Upon it to give-me Disturbance ..• 25 ffeb. 1765 - I understand it is not usual to make Deeds in names. of two Persons ••. ! did not consider that the Lady Dowager (Ld Tankerville's Mother) and her Sister Allan of Holland, being the nearest Relatives I have, as Daughters to my Uncle, are consequently my next heirs at Law. Deed should issue in my name & fall to his Lordship at my Decease as heir to his Mother. I must have it made Sure, as not caring to Subject myself to the Will of the great Man or his Agent, but be absolutely out of their Power... (Signed) Tho. Colvill.

Williams, Charles Urquhart, born at Montrose, Henrico county, Virginia, December 27, 1840, son of Charles Bruce Williams, editor and farmer, and Ann Mercer Hackley, his wife; and a descendant of pioneer settlers of Virginia, among whom we find: Philip Pendleton, of Caroline county; William Williams; Edward Duncanson and James Hackley, of Culpeper county; and James Bruce and George Stubblefield, of King George county. Charles Urquhart Williams attended private schools in Richmond and Culpeper county, after which his education was finished by attendance for one year at the school conducted by David Turner. He read law at the University of Virginia, but he was interrupted by the outbreak of the civil war, when he at once enlisted in the Confederate army, and served as a private in the Richmond Howitzers, and later became lieutenant and drill master. When the army departed from Richmond, Mr. Williams went with Brig.-Gen. D. R. Jones, as volunteer aide-de-camp, and subsequently became assistant adjutant and inspector-general. When Gen. Jones died in July, 1863, Lieut. Williams was assigned to the staff of Gen. M. D. Corse until the close of the war, first as aide-de-camp, then as assistant-adjutant and inspector-general. He was admitted to the Richmond bar in October, 1865, and practiced his profession steadily after that time. He was a Democratic member of the Virginia legislature, 1875-77; and served in both branches of the Richmond city council. He was president of the Westmoreland Club and of the Sons of the American Revolution; commander of R. E. Lee Camp, No. 1. Confederate Veterans, and a member of the Society of Foreign wars and of the Delta Psi fraternity. Mr. Williams married, August 27, 1867, Alice Davenport. He died in 1910.

On 15 November 1694, Thomas Owsley obtained two patents of land in Stafford County. The larger tract of 1000 acres was fronted on its southern point by Pohick Bay. The smaller 150 acre tract adjoined the larger at the northeast corner. He secured a grant of 600 acres on 17 November 1696 and another on 24 March 1697. This latter tract, comprising 640 acres, was situated some distance from his other holdings, but was undoubtedly prime land being located on the shore of the Potomac River in northeast Stafford County (Northern Neck Patents, II, p. 58, 60, and Northern Neck Grants, II, p. 260, 267).

Major Thomas Owsley died 10 October 1700 in Stafford County, Virginia and was buried there on his plantation, now located on the Fort Belvoir Military Reservation, in Fairfax County. The exact date of his death is known from a survey map of 1748 in the case of French Mason vs. Daniel McCarty, 25 March 1748, on which is noted his grave and the comment "Owsly buryd there, as by a tomb stone, he dyed October ye 10th 1700." The survey was redrawn and published in Mitchell's Beginning at a White Oak (op. cit.), p. 64.

"An important document in establishing the offspring of Major Thomas Owsley is a deed of partition dated 29 March 1741 in the records of Prince William County. It reveals that on 24 March 1697/8 William Harris composed his will leaving all of his land in Stafford County to his granddaughters, Jane and Anne Owsley, to be equally divided between them. If they had no heirs, the land should go to Mary Owsley, and if she had no heirs, it should go to the testator's grandson Thomas Owsley. The deed of partition goes on to relat that Jane married James Gregg and Anne married Isaac Kent and that their heirs in 1741 were Matthew Gregg of Stafford County and Isaac Kent of Prince William County (Prince William Co. Deeds, E: 305-309)."

Germanna Colony Notes

The opening paragraph of the Saint Mark Parish Vestry Book reads,

"Persueance to An Act of the General Assembly holden at Williams Burgh the twenty-first day of May 1730 Intitaled an Act for Dividing the Parish of Saint George in the County of Spotsylvania and that all the other part of the said Parish which lies above the said bounds shall there after be Called and Known by the Name of Saint Mark and according to the said Act the free holders and house keepers of the said Parish of Saint Mark did Meet at the Church at Germanna in their said Parish on the said first day of January and there did Elect and Choose twelve of the most able and Discreet persons of their Parish to be vestry Men for their said Parish (viz) GOODRICH LIGHTFOOT, JAMES BARBER, THOMAS STANTON, HENRY FIELD, ROBERT SLAUGHTER, BENJAMIN CAVE, JOHN FINLASON, ROBERT GREEN, FRANCIS KIRTLEY, FRANCIS SLAUGHTER, SAMUEL BALL, WILLIAM PAYTON haveing taken the oaths appointed by Law and Subscribed to be Conformable to the Doctrine and Discipline of the Church of England Doe Act as vestry Men for the Parish of Saint Mark."

These elected Vestrymen came together on Saturday, January 9, 1730, for the first meeting. This latter date must be an old style date for otherwise the first meeting would have been before the parish was created by the Assembly. At the first meeting, all twelve of the elected vestrymen met which was probably the only time that occurred. One of the first items of business was to elect William Payton as "Clark of the said vestry." For his work in doing this, he was to be allowed six hundred pounds of tobacco Convenant [?] for his Service.

The next item was to elect Robert Slaughter and Francis Slaughter, Gent., as "Church wardens for the said Parish for the Insueing Year."

Then William Payton, William Phillips, and John Macmath were approved to continue to be "Readers at the Several Churches and Chapels they formerly read at and that they be paid one thousand pounds of tobacco Casque and Convenuncy Each for this Insueing Year." Signed Robert Slaughter and Francis Slaughter.

The earliest major figure in the collection is James Hunter (1746-1788), a Virginia-born merchant who should not be confused with his uncle, James Hunter (1721-1784), Scottish-born Fredericksburg merchant and master of the iron works at Falmouth. The younger man, known as "James Hunter, Jr.," was educated for the mercantile trade in Duns, Scotland, and London, England, by some of his Hunter cousins. He returned to Virginia before the Revolution and became a merchant at Richmond. During the war he served for a time as assistant commissary for purchase at the Public Storehouse at Fredericksburg, but later gave up the position to engage in mercantile operations with John and Henry Banks, some of which included supplying the Southern Department of the Continental Army during the latter years of the Revolution (see below). After the war he settled as a merchant in Portsmouth

Chancery Court Abstracts: HUNTER, PURVIANCE vs Fielder GAUNT - Contract to Lease - 23 Feb 1790
Adam HUNTER of Virginia, heir and brother of James HUNTER, deceased, also of Virginia, and Samuel PURVIANCE and Robert PURVIANCE, both of Baltimore County vs Fielder GAUNT (Iron Master)

Decree from the Chancery court on 27 Feb 1790 ordered Fielder GAUNT to pay Adam HUNTER and Robert PURVIANCE, the surviving administrator of James HUNTER, the sum of 6,294 pounds, one shilling and one penny current money with interest from December 1769 plus court costs.

Letter to Fielder GANTT dated 19 March 1765 from James HUNTER from York River; (first letter dated 26 Feb 1765 was from King George County) he mentions he is leaving by ship to London; also business dealings with providing goods of cargo from James River to Fielderea Furnace and mentions the Virginia and Pennsylvania and British Sterling currencies; and about Small Pox breakout in the Fielderea area

Another letter from Hunter to Gantt dated 2 August 1765, written from Annapolis, mentions a business association for constructing a forge on Ketocton (Catoctin) and that Gantt's designs on Monocacy were defeated by Calvert & Company because the stream is only sufficient to carry a single hammer for five or six months of the year. Hunter's interest is in taking the pig iron to market.
He also mentions he has heard Gantt treats his workmen intolerable and, if not for money, he would have no one to work for him; and stresses there should be a bond between master and servant and,
if it is broken, the interest of the master will suffer. Hunter always lodged at the house of Robert PETER, Georgetown

The deposition of John Evans, aged about 63, deposes that upwards of 36 years ago, I was at Samuel White's in Prince George's County, and the sd Saml White, in my presence, called a Negro girl of his to him called Murrier, and laid his hand on her head, and said this girl I have given to my son, Guy White, and ever after that, while I stayed in the County, which was many years, the sd Negro was called Guy White's by sd Saml White and all his family. Sd Negro girl was not above 6 years old, if that, when I heard sd Saml White first say he had given her to Guy White, and several times after that, I heard the sd Saml White say that Murrier belonged to Guy White. The sd Guy White being in debt and I being very intimate with the sd Saml White, he got me to put his son, Guy White, on board a vessel at the mouth of Patuxent [River], in order to go to Virginia to live, which he did, and after I returned and told sd Saml White what I had done. Well, said Saml White, what I had given Guy White his children must have. Questioners asked the sd Deponent by Jos. White Claget -
Question 1, how did sd Deponent come at Saml White's on the day he gave the Negro girl Murrier to Guy White - Answer - I was at harvest when he gave her -
Question 2, where did Guy White live when this Negro girl Murrier was given - answer - with his father.
Question 3, why did not Saml White give this Negro girl into his son's possession - answer - the son, Guy White, was in debt and he was afraid she would be taken from him, the sd Guy White, being a housekeeper at that time.
Question 4, what was the size of Guy White when the Negro girl Murrier was given to him - answer - a stout lad.
Question 5, how many children had Guy White when you carried him to the mouth of Patuxent - answer - 2 children living.
Question 6, who was present at the time Saml White gave this Negro girl, Murrier, to Guy White - answer - Benjamin White, Stephen Stamp, John Miles, and many others this Deponent cannot recollect. Signed - John Evans.
I certify that the afd deposition and questions were taken before me in the house of Mr. John Beall's in George Town on Nov 9, 1790, in the presence of Joseph White Clagett of Prince George's County and Robert Thomas of M. Signed - Thos. Beall of Geo*. Recorded Nov 17, 1780.

Nathaniel Wickham married Priscilla Tyler, daughter of Robert and Mary Tyler. Along with Samuel Pottenger, husband of Priscilla's sister Elizabeth, Nathaniel bought two large tracts of land in Montgomery County, Maryland. These were only two of many land purchases Nathaniel made.
===
He was active in the politics of Maryland, working as a surveyor, Justice of the court, and Colonel in the Militia. In 1748 he was appointed with Thomas Beaty, Joseph Ogle, William Griffin, Edward Spriggs, John Kimble, and William Tanneyhill as commissioner to buy land for a courthouse and prison in Frederickstown, Maryland. Later he was included in the list of military commissions sent to Annapolis. Sovernor Sharp instructed Wickham to regulate the militia of his county. However, four months later, Nathaniel was in debtor's prison along with Michael Resiner, Samuel DuVal, George Baker, Joseph Luxenbuerger, John Turnbul, and John Campbell. Apparently his land speculations did not pay off and his debts caught up with him. Maryland was in a general depression. The jails overflowed with debtors according to a declaration of the Maryland Assembly. Ironically, Nathaniel Wickham was imprisoned in the very prison he was commissioned to build.

On June 10, 1761 Nathaniel Wickham petitioned the Maryland Assembly in a statement that "for five years and eight months a languishing prisioner in the jail of Frederick County for debt and divers sums of tobacco which said debt by reasons of divers losses and misfortunes he was before his confinement unable to pay." He added that he had tried to pay his debts by assigning his property to his creditors who had rejected his offers. He stated he had never knowingly tried to defraud his creditors

Son George-negro boy Billy, son of Hannah.
Son Samuel Peachy-negro boy Plato, son of Norah.

Rest of my negroes to be equally divided among my wife, and my sons George, and Samuel, and the child my wife now goes with, and the part allotted to my wife, at her death be equally divided among my said children, and if either of the sid children should die before the age of twenty one, their part to be equally divided among the survivors.
Part of my stock and furniture as may be deemed necessary, be kept together for use of wife and children, and the rest be sold and the money therefrom together with the crop and saltary on hand or due me, and the debts due me, be equally divided among my wife and children.
As there is a marriage contract between my wife and me, and I am under some apprehension that my son George may take all the negroes mentioned.
