      Elinor Lindsey could not testify in court in Oct. 1665 because she was close to giving birth.

      Records of the Court of New Castle on Delaware, Vol. II

      Page 13: 6 Sept. 1682 - Edmund Linsy was granted 200 acres of land.

      Page 124: Tax list for 1685/1686 - Edmund Lindsy paid taxes on 200 acres of land on the north side of the Apoquenimy, no tithes.

      Page 173: Tax list for 1687 - Edmund Lindsey of North Apoquenimy paid taxes on 200 acres of land, no tithes.

      Page 206: 16 June 1691 - Letter of attorney from Edmond Linsy to Edward Gibbs bearing date of 6 June 1691 proved and allowed. Also, assignment of a patent from Edmond Linsy to John Burk bearing date of 6 June 1691 for 200 acres of land called Dublin situate on Georges Creek proved and acknowledged by Edward Gibbs, attorney of Edmond Linsy.

      From these records it is clear that Edmund Lindsey owned land in New Castle Co., but he did not live there. He was alive and living somewhere else in 1691
