But I am a hopeless history nerd… so there.  There doesn’t appear to be any “King Tut” like treasure but it is still ongoing…


still digging…


Bummer… it was looted long ago…

  1. In all your research, have you ever found a John Peyton Anderson married to a Rebecca Perry? John was probably born around 1717-probably in Scotland…One of my Grandfathers is his son: Theophilus Perry Anderson, born 12 Jun 1767 in Piney Hill, Nelson, Virginia…Would be interested if you have these three names anywhere in your research..Thanks.

  2. Hey just wanted to say that this is a great blog! I enjoyed seeing the deed map of Isle of Wight County. I do have one question. George Hardy, Thomas Wombwell, and Peter Hull together patented 1100 acres in Isle of Wight County, 1648. Do you know where this land was located in relationship to John Moone’s patent, and John Upton’s patent. Additionally, Thomas Green supposedly bought a total of 300 acres from Richard Braswell who was the son of Rev. Robert Braswell in 1674 (I think). I believe that the 300 acres where first sold to Rev. Robert Braswell from John Upton. I am asking because I am researching Thomas Green and his family for potential siblings and parents. Any information of the 1648 patent would be very much appreciated. Thank you for all your hard work and making it available.

    • Upton had considerable property and if I remember correctly, he sold or “gifted” the property eventually owned by Rev Braswell. I have never mapped that particular property (it is very complex). With that being said though, I am confident it was very near the area of Benn’s Church that can be found on modern maps.

      Use Google Maps to locate Benns Church … then zoom in to street level and navigate around a bit… you can find the Old Brick Church associated with Braswell. My hunch is that is the general area you are looking for… within a mile or two radius.
