      Letter from Robert Carter to Micajah Perry, September 30, 1723
      Robert Carter writes to London merchant Micajah Perry, September 30, 1723, to notify the merchant of six bills of exchange he is sending. He continues with a discussion of land that he has wished to buy for many years from Robert Cary of London. He reminds Perry that this Hull property had formerly belonged to his deceased niece, and that the dispute over the ownership had been appealed to the Virginia Council where Carter lost. He had then negotiated with Cary through his son John (when John was studying law in London) but Cary wanted £2,000 which Carter thought too much. He understands from John that Cary might be willing to sell lfor £1,000. If so, he instructs Perry to buy the property if Cary can give him a clear title.

      If you will please to give yourself the trouble to overhall some of my late Lettrs. you will find for Some Years I have been In treaty with Mr. Cary for the Land he recovered under the Title of Hull the Great Uncle of my Brothers Daughter Eliza: Loyd who last died Seas'd from these Lands in the Tryal a great dispute arose wether Robt. Hull under whom Mr. Cary claims was Brother to the whole Blood to Jno. Hull the Grandfather of my Niece the point was so nice the Court was equally divided till it came to Colln:Spotswood who gave his judgment in favour of Mr. Cary, there are some that are in possession of some of this Land yet hold out tis now said Mr. Cary hath got fuller proofs for his title under ROBT HULL, I Imployed my Son in this Affair to whom Mr. Cary promised the refusall of this Land but after his Demands were nothing less then Two Thousand pounds whereupon I declined all further thoughts about the Matter, My Son Acquaints me by the last discourse he had with Mr. Cary he believes he would part wth: them for one Thousand Pounds My request to you is you woud will renew this Treaty again and to let me know how he stands Incli ned if he can make out a clear Title I beleive I may adventure at the purchase at a Thousand pounds If you think it proper
      to give yourself the Trouble of this Affair you will oblige

      LLOYD, ELIZABETH (CARTER) , only child of Robert Carter's brother John. Elizabeth (1675-1693) married John Lloyd in 1691, and was dead by November 1693 of measles. John appointed managers of the estate in 1699 in Essex County, and returned to England the next year as he had inherited land there. Elizabeth inherited from her mother, Elizabeth Hull, also an only child, all of her grandfather John Hull's property.
