1769. Dec. 2. Will of William BODEKER of Bedford Co VA ... to William
JAMES Senr. my desk watch and in case of his death before Margaret JAMES his spouse to her ... also a tract of land of 150A, Pistole, in Baltimore Co, MD put in the power of Mr. Thomas FRANKLIN to recover, late in the possession of John WELSH purchased by me from Moses RAWLINGS with the rents and profits arising from the same ... also all books and book debts ... and every other thing belonging to me at my death ... William JAMES Senr. sole heir and Executor ... 2 Dec. 1769. Signed W. BODEKER. Wit: Sam. HAIRSTON, Frs. HAMILTON, John CROW, Thomas JAMES. At a Court held for Bedford County, 27 Feb. 1770. Recorded in 1773, in Baltimore County, Maryland. [The tract "Pistoll", 150A was surveyed for Owen WILLIAMS in 1719 and patented by Moses RAWLINGS in 1728. In 1737, suits were filed against Moses RAWLINGS in the Provincial Court by John MOALE and Vachel DENTON. Judgement was rendered against Moses RAWLINGS in both cases and he was ordered to pay damages. In 1738, Provincial Court records show that since Moses RAWLINGS was unable to pay, his land, "Pistole" 150A and "Addition to Pistole" 150A was to be delivered to Vachel DENTON and John MOALE until his debts, damages and costs could be paid. It appears that DENTON and MOALE divided the two tracts between themselves. In 1742 Vachel DENTON sold 75A of "Pistole" and 75 acres of "Addition to Pistole" to Nathaniel STINCHCOMB. The Rent Roll entries show 75A of each tract in possession of John STINCHCOMB and the same amount in the possession of the heirs of Nathaniel STINCHCOMB. No dates are given. (Letter of Beverly A. Baker, Maryland State Archives, 7 Dec. 1970.)

VIRGINIA GLEANINGS IN ENGLAND; The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography p 144: The son Robert Porteus, born 1679, died August 8, 1758, lived at "New Bottle," now called " Concord," in Gloucester. Hodgson, in his life of Bishop Porteus, says that the Bishop had " a singular picture which, though not in the best style of coloring, was yet thought valuable by Sir Joshua Reynolds as a specimen of the extent to which the art of paintings had at that time reached in America, and he himself very highly praised it as exhibiting a faithful and interesting representation of his father's residence."
Robert Porteus was appointed to the Council in 1713, and remained a member of that body until he removed to England sometime between 1725 and 1730. He settled in the city of Turk, and afterwards at Ripon. To the latter place he was probably led by the fact that his wife was Elizabeth (died January 20, 1754, aged So, buried at St. Martins, Coney street, York), daughter of Edmund Jenings of " Ripon Hall," Virginia, and formerly of Ripon, Yorkshire.
In Ripon Cathedral, on the wall of the south aisle of the choir, is a mural tablet with the following inscription :

"Near this Place
Are deposited the Remains
OF Robert Porteus, Esquire,
A. Native of Virginia, and a Member of His Majesty's Council,
Or Upper House of Legislature in that Province,
From thence he removed to England,
And resided first at York, afterwards at this Town,
Where he died August 8, 1758,
Aged 79 years."

Robert Porteus was the father of Beilby Porteus, born at York May 8, 1731, died May 14, 1808, successively Bishop of Chester and London. Ed.]
