JACOB SELLARS 353 Acres lying in Pamunkey Neck of King William County
April 24, 1703.
The only other geographically useful data mentioned land beginning at
a great red oak in
Yarbrough's Lower line and that part of it crosses an unnamed swamp.
Land was granted "for the
transportacion of seven persons into this Colony whose names are to
be in the record mentioned
under this patent."  Even after I blew up the names, some are really
hard to read.  Here is what I
found.  (I invite others to have a look.)  The last two names are
written on one line.
Mary Cheyney
Edward Jones (poss. Jonas)
Mary (poss. Connole)
Cha: Leonard (I assume Charles Leonard)
John (maybe Faustet or Foster???)
