The link here should take you to my old website where the surveys are, We find that John Brewer is here . He is probably the son Of John 111 and the brother of George In the year 1715

feb 28 1723- George Brewer lived on lower left of Reedy Branch ,100 acres in Dinwiddie county Va. Land is Just above Merehrin river on Wyches branch -Land left to son Henry Brewer lies on Fontaines Creek between Beaverpond creek and the Merehrin river near North Carolina line.
Land left to Nathaniel Brewer lies up above Hicksford near Harrys swamp, (closer to John brewer farm)
Wyches branch is land owned by the father of Abigail Wyche who married George Jr and brought with her a larrge portion of land. HARRYS SWAMP Or Harrys RUN and JONES HOLE SWAMP lines below that
Then at the Bottom you have Fontaine Creek
p:556 aug 10, 1722 Nicholas Brewer, sr. of saint Martins Brandon parish Prince George co. to his son Nicholas Brewer Jr. and Elizabeth his wife, of same, for love and affection, 50 acres lying on the south side of HARRYS RUN in Prince George co in Martins Brandon parish, next to John Hobbs ,dec's, JAMES JONES house,Mr. John Hardyman.
wit Edward Prince ,James Moody Robert Tillman rec. sep 11 1722
William Brewer son of George bought over 5000 acres of land from Greenville at rattlesnake creek on up to the Merehrin river

Fontaine Creek that i believe is named for Henchaw Gilliams wife Fortaine Flood Runs Parrell to and about 2 miles off of the nc va state line. Dinwiddee county, brunswick county, mecklinburg county and Nottoway countys meet at a point near the top of brunswick, my grandfather James standley lived on Jenito Creek next to the line and his neighbors were Malone, Nance, Floyd, Ezell. My grandfather Brewer lived on rte 601 off of rte 46/ I believe the old roanoke road is now rte 46 and runs from Lawrenceville down through Brunswick touching Greenville and on across The Roanoke River where they put the dam in 1950
If you go down from John Brewer in the survey you will find Henry Thweatt who married Hannah Stanley cousin of James and go down a couple of more names and you will find William Grigg JR, My grandfather William Standley father of James witnessed this Grigg will in 1726, William Grigg SR married Susan Lockett sister of Elizabeth Lockett ,the Grandmother of James Standley. If you click on the year 1722 ? all the way at the bottom is Elizabeth Stanley who lived on 250 acres of land in Dinwiddee county.
You might have to change the link to read /index.html instead of getstarted.htm
I once wrote to the Newspaper in Lawrenceville and in a column said if you are from Brunswick write to me because you are probably Kin.. I can not go to the county without running into relatives.
