CJ(9): The Transfer 1676

By the spring 1676, Henry Benson (BE-1) transfers his land to Charles Taliaferro (TA-5). This land transfer is recorded in Old Rappahannock Co. Deeds & Wills 1677 - 1682, Part I, p. 90. The Taliaferro family and the Jones family are intimately intertwined. [Much more to come regarding this!] The document reads:

"Know All Men by these presents that I Henry BENSON (BE-1) of ye County of Rappac doe hereby acknowlege for my selfe my heirs & assignes to have given wth my free Will & hearty consent. & I doe firmley make over from me my heires forever unto Charles TALIAFERRO (TA-5), Sonne of Mr. Robert TALIAFERRO (TA-2) deced. of ye County his heires & assignes all my right & interest of One thousand acres of land granted to me by ye Right Honble: Governor, bearing date ye 5th of 8ber 1673 according to ye severall Courses mentioend in ye said Pattent. And further I ye said Henry BENSON (BE-1) doe obleidge my selfe to acknowledge this as my free Gift & Deed either by my selfe or known Attorney at ye next Court held for the County or at any time hereafter when reasonally requested on ye behalfe of abovesiad Charles TALIAFERRO (TA-5). I doe alsoe acknowlege that all priviledges granted to me in ye Pattent are hereby convayed & intended to be convayed soe farr forth as to ye demised prmises & for ye better confimacon hereof I have hereunto sett my hand & seale this 25th of April Ano Dom 1676. Singed Sealed in ye prsence of

David Jones (JO-2) Henry Benson (BE-1)
Francis Taliaferro (TA-3)

This record gives the first JONES to be associated with Cadwallader. Henry Benson(BE-1) transfers his land to Charles Taliaferro (TA-5). What is this all about? Why so many Taliaferroes? Questions, questions, and more questions...only the beginning!
