CJ (#26) May 1685

Records of the Rappahannock County Court of 7th May 1685 continues:

"Refference is granted to Colnll. Cadwallider Jones Plt. (JO-1) & Frederick Grimshaw Deft. (GRI-1) till next North side Court".

At this time Rappahannock County cover both sides of the Rappahannock River.  The south side was the most western and faced the unknown frontier.  The north side faced to the northeastern border of prior settlements.  Courts were held on both sides of the river.   Cases from this same date contained many individuals that were to play a role in the family of Cadwallader Jones (JO-1).
