CJ (#35) Court Days Nov. 1686

It was the 1st of November, 1686 that our Cadwallader Jones (JO-1) appears as a justice of the court.  He is listed with "Colnll. Jon. Stone" (ST-1), "Capt. Samuel Blomfield" (BLO-1), and "Mr. Samuel Peachey" (PE-1).  A lot of cases are dealt with during this session [p. 59- 62 of (Old) Rappahannock County Court Order Book Abstracts 1685 - 1687]

On page 60 of this reference is recorded:

" Attachmt. is granted to Jno. Battaile (BAT-1) Assignee of Colnll. Cadwaldr. Jones (JO-1) against the Estate of Danll. Merriott (MERR-1) accord: to Declaracon returnable."

John Battaile (BAT-1) has a long standing relationship with our Cadwallader (JO-1).  It was our Cadwallader (JO-1) that transport John to the colonies.  Much is yet to be discovered regarding this relationship, but it would seem that this date in November 1686 was the last date that Cadwallader Jones (JO-1) was recorded to be physically present in the courts of (Old) Rappahannock County.  New adventures await!
