Whereas the above named Stephen Gartrell, in his lifetime, did, on or about Nov 2, 1763, enter into Articles of Agreement with the afd Aaron Gartrell for the absolute disposal of one half part of that tract of land called The Resurvey on Littleworth and Beggars Purchase, lying in M, and containing 228 acres, upon condition that the sd Aaron Gartrell should pay one half of the expenses that arose in taking up, surveying, and securing the sd land, and one half of the quit rents that should be due from the date of the certificate until patent should be obtained thereon. And whereas the sd Aaron Gartrell, in compliance with his part of the contract, has paid half of the expenses that accrued in taking up the sd land, and half of the quit rents that became due until patent was obtained thereon, but no conveyance was made therefor by reason of the death of the sd Stephen Gartrell, who, by his will, devised the afd half part of the above tract of land to Aaron Gartrell, but the words of sd will convey only a life estate and left the residue of his real and personal estate to Sarah Gartrell, his widow, and Anne, Rachel, and Sarah Gartrell, 3 daughters of the sd Stephen Gartrell, who were unmarried at his death, to be equally divided between them, whereby the reversion of the land devised to Aaron Gartrell has vested in them under the sd will. And whereas Anne Gartrell, one of the daughters and devisees afd, married John Penn, by whom she had issue several children, and among the rest, John Penn, an infant of about 6 years of age, who upon the death of his mother, which has since happened, became entitled to 1/2; part of sd land in reversion, and by reason of his tender years, is incapable to join in this present conveyance. And whereas the sd Sarah Gartrell, widow and relict of Stephen Gartrell and Rachel and Sarah Gartrell, daughters of the sd Stephen, knowing that the terms of the Agreement afd have been fulfilled on the part of sd Aaron Gartrell, have agreed to convey to the sd Aaron Gartrell, in fee simple, all their right thereto. Now this deed witnesses that the sd Sarah Gartrell, Rachel Gartrell, and Sarah Gartrell, for and in consideration of the above recited premises and for 5 shillings, sell to sd Aaron Gartrell, of the above recited tract of land called the Resurvey on Littleworth and Beggars Purchase, lying in M, and containing about 114 acres.

Silvester Bennett, b. Oct. 25, 1630, died 1706 in Isle of Wight County, Va., married Lt. Col. Nicholas Hill. He and his wife Sylvester, September 30, 1644, received a patent of 750 acres in Isle of Wight, "Being the moiety of 1500 acres of land appurtaining unto the said Sylvester and her sister, who were daughters and coheirs of Mr. Edward Bennett, deceased, by the riverside in a valley called the Rock." (W & M Q 7, P. 298)

Nicholas Hill was first Major and then Lt. Col. of Isle of Wight Militia. He represented the County in the House of Burgesses, September 1663 and October 1666 (W&MQ 7, P. 314). He made his will the 19th of April 1675 and same was probated 20th October 1675. (W&MQ 7, P. 238). Silvester Bennett Hill lived until 1706 and made her will 20th of October that year. Same was probated 9th January 1707 (W&M 7 P. 255). She mentioned none of her own descendants in her will. She deeded her life interest in her husband's plantation "a little above Lawn Creek" in 1695 to Lewis Burwell of Lawn Creek (W&M. 7, P. 250). This probably came to them.

wealthy London merchant who was once Deputy-Governor of the British Merchants of HollandOn November 21, 1621, Edward Bennett obtained this patent for a plantation conditioned on the settling of 200 immigrants. His associates were Thomas Ayres, Thomas Wiseman and Richard Wiseman.
In February 1622 the "Sea Flower" arrived with 120 settlers led by Captain Ralph Hamor, a member of the Virginia Council who had previously come over to Virginia in 1609 and was a settler of great experience. Others among the settlers were George Harrison and Rev. William Bennett, kinsmen of Edward Bennett. They settled at a place called "Warroscoyack," which was named after an Indian tribe which lived in what is now Isle of Wight County. Sometimes this place was called "Edward Bennett's plantation" and "Bennett's Welcome."
Hardly a month had elapsed and at a time when the settlers were building their houses on this plantation in March 1622, there occurred the great Indian Massacre by the Indians under Opecanaugh. There were 347 people killed out of a total population of 1240 in Virginia. This massacre was on Good Friday, March 22, 1622. There were 53 persons killed at Edward Bennett's plantation, and at the time the census was taken February 16, 1624 there were only 33 persons at Warroscoyack.

The "Ann" arrived in James Cittie on 7 Aug 1623. Elizabeth’s father Robert Bennett and his entire household died from the fever Aug-Nov 1623. Conditions were bad, disease, access to food and supplies, indians.... and Thomas had word his father was not well, reasons that likely drove their decision to return home when the "Ann" departed for London.
Elizabeth did not return to Virginia until 1735. Thomas made many voyages back and forth as a London merchant trading goods, and he established plantations in the Bahamas, Jamaica, and on his fathers land in Virginia. Several sons traveled with him and managed the plantations with their father.

Aug. 1765 - Thomas Contee and Company vs. Mary Swann. In Jan. 1763, George Swann and Mary Swann ("X" her mark) of Charles Co., planters, signed a note to Thomas Contee and Company in which George Swann agreed to pay Contee 5/0/2 currency and that if he did not do so George Swann and Mary Swann would be jointly and severally liable to Contee in the penal sum of 10/0/4 currency. Not having been paid the 5/0/2, Contee brought suit against Mary (but not George) for the 10/0/4. Notley Luckett, of Charles Co., planter, appeared as pledge and security for Mary. The case came on to be heard at the Aug. 1765 Court. Mary offered no defense and the Court found for Contee in the penal sum amount, plus 185 lbs. of tobacco for his costs.
