In Reply to: Information on Letitia's Manor by Bob Craig of 5364

While there may be more specific information somewhere I can recommend the series of books, NEW CASTLE CNTY, DE LAND RECORDS by Carol Bryant and by Carol Garrett published by FamilyLine Publications (now WillowBend Books), Westminster, MD. As a for instance:
(from the volume covering 1673-1710)

Deed: On 17 Aug 1702. James LOGAN of Philadelphia to John GREGG of the cnty of New Castle, yeoman. Whereas the Honorable William PENN, esq, Governor in this province to the same belonging by a grant or patent under his hand dated 23 Oct 1701 for the considerations mentioned granted to his only dtr, Letitia PENN, a tract of land called Manor of Staining, situated on the south side of Brandywine Creek by Burroughs Run containing 15,500 acres. Whereas Letitia PENN by her letter of attorney dated 31 Oct 1701 did appoint Edward PENNINGTON of Philadelhia, gent (since deceased), & me the sd James LOGAN jointly her attorneys giving us the power to give, grant & sell to such persons & upon such terms as her attorneys should seem met, all her manor's lands. Now James LOGAN for 40 granted to John GREGG a tract of land part of the Manor aforesaid containing 200 acres, & John GREGG to pay 2 silver shillings yearly to said James LOGAN on behalf of Letitia PENN on 01 Mar in the town of Chester.
