I have transcripts of two documents concerning my ancestor, Thomas Nicholson, that mention John Champe. Both concern the sale of property in Virginia (part of which is now the Shenandoah National Park). In the first of these documents, a consent to sell land Spotsylvania County by Mary Nicholson and her son John dated 12 March 1750, states "...hath made authorized constitued and appointed and in their place and stead put and by these presents do and each of them both make ordain authorize constitute appoint and in their place and stead put and depute their friend Major John Champ in Rappahannock River in Virginia Merchant their ture and Lawful Attorney irevocable for them and in their name or names to Contract for bargain, sell and Dispose in or out of public sale...". The second document concerns the sale of said land dated 6 November 1752 and it refers to "... John Champe of the County of King George in the Colony of Virginia..."

Hope this helps somehow. Mike
