There is mention of 1695 within the land you have this? Have you tried looking during that year for land records to see how they got the land to begin with?

Also, I'm not finding any mention of the surname WILLIAMS and there were no "Ann"s mentioned as wives. Let me know if I can help regarding the land. :) Sandy
