      To son Lloyd and the hrs. of his body, all these my lands, I bought of John Howell called "Deal Town," but more commonly "Howell's Point," of Aquila Paca and his wife, of Henry Wothert and his wife, and 450 A. part of "Fair Promise, ' which I bought of one Warner, all being contiguous to each other in Kent Co.; 850 A. part of "Tasker's Chance, " laid out for Tost (?)
