I was wrong about the 1736 date. The date of this purchase deed is March 22, 1725. I found it in the purchasing index in the Delaware Archives at Dover, Delaware. I have not been able to get back to Dover, Delaware to find out when he sold this land which is a separate sold index. It is the best I could translate it but still very, very long so here goes:
