CJ (#35) Court Days August 1686

It must have been a very long day for those in Rappahannock County Court the 4th of August 1686.  The four justices;  Mr. Henry Awbrey (AW-1), Mr. Samll. Peachey (PE-1), Capt. Samll. Blomfield (BLO-1), and Capt. Samll. Travers (TR-2) all had some dealings with our Cadwallader Jones (JO-1).  The cases recorded for that day covers p. 237 - 243 of the order book 1685 - 1687.  On p. 242 is found:

"Reference granted between Tho: Norman Plt. (NOR-1) and Colnll. Cadwalar: Jones (JO-1) Deft till next South side Court &c."

It would seem that Cadwallader (JO-1) was the defendant in another case brought to court this 4th of August 1686.  Things would change from here.
