CJ (#15) It Descended

A patent is recorded on the 20th of April 1682 which indicates that our Cadwallader Jones (JO-1) had inherited other lands from his father Richard Jones (JO-5).  The land was located in Gloster Co., Abbington Parish, upon the Yorke River. (Had been Charles River before Charles lost his head.)
It reads:

"Thomas Boswell(BOS-1), 1100 acs., Gloster Co., Abbinton Par., upon Yorke River side & Timber Neck Cr., 20 Apr. 1682.  Beg. at mouth of sd. Cr ; to 100 acs sold to Mr. Booker; includ. all the islands to sd. Creek's mouth. 1000 acs. granted Richd. Richards (RI-1) 2 Aug. 1645, & descended to Hugh Richards (RI-2), who assigned to Thomas Wilson (WI-1) & Richard Jones (JO-5); by Wilson (WI-1) assigned to sd. Jones (JO-5), from whom it descended to Cadwallader Jones (JO-1), who conveyed to sd. Boswell (BOS-1), 19 Mar. 1679; 100 acs., being overplus, due for trans. of 2 pers: Wm. Morton (MOR-1), Joseph Tompson (TO-1)."

This patent indicates that Cadwallader (JO-1) had inherited this l000 acres and conveyed it to Thomas Boswell (BOS-1) early in 1679.  Much was happening in the life of Cadwallader Jones (JO-1).  The surnames contained in this patent, i.e., "Richards" and "Wilson" prove important in connecting the genealogy "dots" surrounding the life of Richard Jones (JO-5).

The reference is found: Cavaliers and Pioneers, Vol. II, p.238.
