      Note:
      On Oct. 8, 1702, in the Book of Deeds and Wills, No. 10, of Essex County, Virginia., p. 120, we find the following:

      James Harrison, of Essex County, Virginia, deed of gift of a tract of land containing 400 acres of land in Essex County, "whereon I now live," to his daughter, Jael, wife of William Williams, of Stafford County, Virginia.

      f. Elinor,
      g. Philemon, Jr.,
      h. Sarah,
      i. Mary. (See Kavanaugh Family,

      B1.)

      Biog./Hist. Note During its session begun in May 1780 the General Assembly passed an act authorizing the governor to impress supplies needed by the American army. The governor appointed commissioners of the provision law in each locality to carry out the terms of the act. The commissioner, when he impressed property, gave the owner a certificate describing what was taken. Between 1781 and 1783 county courts held special sessions at which certificates were presented and authenticated, and booklets listing authenticated certificates were compiled and sent to Richmond for settlement. Two commissioners appointed to settle the claims recorded those for which they authorized payment, and warrants were issued by the auditor of public accounts.
