That the said John Addison and William Hutcheson in their lifetime sold to James Green all that part that lies on the east side of the road that leads from the head of Piscattaway to the the head of port tobacco that the said William Hutchison by his last will gave his half of the remaining part of the said tract to his daughter Ann above named and by the death of the said John Addison the other half of the remaining part of the said land decended to and became the right of inheritance to the above named Thomas Addison who was son and heir of the said John Addison. And whereas the said Thomas Addison and the aforesaid Ann Parker by the means aforesaid became jointly seized in possession in fee in part of the said tract of land aforesaid and whereas Ann intermarried with Gabriel Parker and the said Thomas Addison, Gabriel Parker and Ann Parker by their deed bearing date September 17, 1725 did make partition of the aforesaid land and the said Gabriel Parker and Ann Parker to have all that part of the tract which lies on the west side of the divisional line.
