Commissioners appointed: Wm Wilkinson, William Middleton, Jonathan Willson, and Richard Willson (not being any way related to the Petr, contiguous Proprietor, nor interested in the sd land).

      We met on the premises on the 16th day of this instant, and examined such witnesses as were to us produced by sd Richard Johns and Osborn Sprigg, touching the premises. Signed Feb 28, 1737.8 - William Wilkinson, Jona: Willson.

      The deposition of James Hagan, age about 66, who declares that Mr. Richard Edelen, about 44 years ago, then CC Surveyor, told him that an old chestnut tree (now down), which this deponent stands by, was the 2nd bound tree of a tract of land called Wardle.

      The deposition of James Hagan, age as afd, declares that Mr. Rich'd Edelen afd, told him that a Spanish oak, by which this deponent now stands, was the 1st bound tree of a tract of land called Wardle, and from whence this deponent went to a place within about 4-6 yards of a large poplar where this deponent said Colo. Jowles, in running out the land called Wardle, stopped, the number of perches being out.
