      Further records in St. Marys reveals the suit of THOMAS UELL against Mrs. MARGARET BRENT under date of November, 1649.

      Within the next two months THOMAS YOUELLE removed to Virginia, having established his residence in Northumberland County following the loss of Claiborne's cause in Maryland. A deposition given by THOMAS YOUELLE on February 16, 1650, was read in a court in St. Marys in a case in which JOHN STURMAN was plaintiff. The deposition was attested before an officer in Northumberland County, Virginia. On January 10, 1651, William Hardwick, of Nominy, Virginia, gave a power of attorney to JOHN STURMAN of St. Marys, which was witnessed by THO. YOUELL in Nominy. This portion of Northumberland was set off as Westmoreland County in July, 1653. JOHN STURMAN was a son of THOMAS STURMAN and brother of ANNE (STURMAN) YOWELL, wife of THOMAS YOWELL.

      In Virginia, on September 16, 1651, he was granted three hundred acres of land by Governor William Berkeley, for the transportation of six persons into the colony. The grant was in that part of the county set off in 1653 as Westmoreland County and is described as "On the South side of Potomack River abutting easterly on Nominy Bay, Northerly upon a creek which divides this land from the land of John Armsby; Easterly and Southerly into the main woods. ..."

Sturman which was witnessed by John sturman (Ib-383). It is likely, if not certain, that Andrew Monroe went to Virginia from Maryland in 1647, with Thomas Youell and Thomas Sturman. These two men originally steeled in Kent isle in the Chesapeake--1st claimed by Col. Wm. Clayburn of the Virginia Council who settled it in 1634 or earlier but was in 1638 dispossessed by Lord Calvert. In 1647/8 Thomas Sturman and Andrew Monroe left St. Mary's and settled near Youell in Westmoreland. county. John Sturman later also crossed into Virginia where he married Elizabeth, daughter of Patrick & Dorcas Spence, the sister of Elanor Spence, who married Andrew the 2nd, son of Andrew the 1st, the Immigrant.
