CJ (#37) In Rappa: Court July 1687

The transfer of  "Goods and Chattles" of Cadwallader Jones (JO-1) to Robert Taliaferro (TA-1) is recorded in my post of September 3.  An addition to this record is recorded "July the 5th 1687.  It reads as follows:

" 8ber 20th 1686.  Then assigned all my right interest and title whatsoever for a Negro man called Black Jack to Mr. Robt. Taliaferro (TA-1) and his heires for ever, it being in part of his potion due to him from his Father in my hands, I say, assigned with warrantie per me

       David Meredith. (MER-2)                  Cadwalader Jones (JO-1)
       Jno. Battaile (BAT-1)

Recognitr in Cur Com Rappa: 3 die August 1687 et record 12th die "

"ss.  These are to desire you to acknowledge in Rappa:Court two Bills of Sale to Mr. Robt. Taliaferro (TA-1) and yor; so doing this shall be yor: warrant Witness my hand July the 5th 1687

Test   John Taliaferro (TA-4)                                          Cadwalader Jones (JO-1)
             John Battaile (BAT-1)                                           

Recordr. Cur Com Rappa; 12th die August 1687 "

By this record it would seem that our Cadwallader (JO-1) was still present in (Old) Rappahannock County when he signed the above. [July 5th 1687 ]  It was recorded in the records of the court on the 12th day of August 1687.  As far as I can tell, this would be the last time that our Cadwallader (JO-1) appears in person in Rappahannock County until after 1700.  This record also documents that our Cadwallader (JO-1) had control of the estate of Robert Taliaferro (Sr.) (TA-2) at the date October 8th, 1686.
