[John Dugger was probably the son of Daniel Dugger and Mary Scarborough (per descendants) and was the clerk of the Old Courthouse Church in the St. Andrew’s Parish. He owned land near Avents Creek. Perhaps records of this parish will yield more on Anthony Metcalf. Since John Metcalfe witnessed the will of a Tabitha (Scarburgh/Scarborough Metcalf in 1713), is there any connection between Anthony Metcalf and John Metcalfe of York Co.?]
