1775-1803 British Mercantile Claims
Claims of Geo: McCall & Company (pp. 29-31):
Robert Coleman Senr., Culpeper . £8.14.4-1/2 by note. He died intestate in Culpeper County about
1793. His administrator is Philip Clayton, now of the same county. He knows nothing of any British claims except the share he was bound to pay James Harford as a partner in the firm of Philip Clayton & Company, nor are there any papers left by him that will throw light on the subject. At the peace and some time before Rt. Coleman possessed but very little property, not more than one slave besides a tract of land. He was far advanced in age and had for many years before broken up house keeping and lived alternately with his children. Although he did not possess much property he was generally considered an honest man and would have been reputed solvent. Long after his British debts were contracted he gave property to his children to an amount vastly more than sufficient to pay all his debts. John Yancy who married his daughter and who removed to Rockingham County about 1790 has some slaves in his possession formerly belonging to Robt. Coleman Senr., in consequence of which he is bound to pay some of his British debts. It is probable the old man imposed this obligation upon him at the time of the gift.
Since the peace it is extremely doubtful whether the amount of thie claims now existing against him could have been satisfied without selling his land, which the laws of our state would not compel

=== Research notes from veneta mill

Samuel West (son of William West) who died in October 1722 Ann Arundel County, MD. The administer of his estate was "Stephen Gorman." I believe this was Stephen German / Jarman, whose wife is Elleanor. They lived in Prince George's County.

Do you know where the name "Stephen" originates as the spouse of Sarah? I find several families listing Stephen as the spouse of Sarah, but no one has records that prove this. I question this because a "John Jarmen" owned Morris Hope, and the son of Sarah Jarmen, Stephen, was the owner of it in 1816 when he left Prince George's Co for Tuscarawas Co, Ohio. A Stephen (age 20) is the head-of-household living with Sarah (age 53) on the 1776 census. Could Sarah's husband be John instead?

Charles County Maryland Land Record Liber Z#2, 1744-1753; Page 316.
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.

Henry Isham added another wing onto the residence which was enhanced with tall pines and an English Flower Garden and was enclosed within a white picket fence. Katherine and Henry Isham were the leaders of Virginia Society at that time. They had three children together. Mary , who married William Randolph , Anne who married Francis Eppes and Henry Isham, Jr who died as a young unmarried man; he was lost at sea.

Northern Neck Warrants and Surveys Vol IV, Fairfax Co. Va {Peggy Joyner}
EARL OF TANKERVILLE, no wart, but issued in name of John Patterson, survd 17 Oct. 1764; 47+ a. including several marshes & pocosons; a wart for John Patterson (objected to by Colo Thomas Colvill as fraudulently obtained but at request of sd Colville as well as sd Patterson I have survd as directed by wart); on s side Gt Hunting Creek; adj. Matthews (now ThoS Colvill' s). CC - Archibald Mcmaning & ThoS Griffeth. Surv. John Hough.
28 Nov. or Dec. (?) 1764 - "Clish Fairfax co" - Letter(s) from Thomas Colvill to office of Proprietor - Some time Since John Roughs Son camehere to Survey a piece of Land & Marsh joyning to this tract of my Brothers on which I live, but after my decease left to Lord Tankerville. The wart was in the Sole name of John Patterson, without the least mention of his Lord or me who am the present Possessour. As it is Marsh & Land overflowed at high Tides,.· I ought to have had Notice; But this would not have Servd Pattersons turn, whose Intention was to obtain a Deed by Surprize: I intended to have Enterd the Land & Marsh as Soon as I was informd it was not Included within my Lines & applyd to John West, junr to have Enterd for me, who I find has neglected it. 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.
