"On March 3, 1712, in Prince George County, Robert Mumford, of Bristol parish, Prince George County, to Richard Bland, of the City of Williamsburg, a lease to farm, land near Jordan's, between Deep Bottom and Cureton's Bottom, in occupation of Thomas Burge, 430 acres, 130 thereof formerly belonging to James Munford, father of said Robert, and given to him by inheritance, part thereof from Colonel John Hardyman and the other 100 by purchase from Mr. Francis Poythress, all of which appears by James Munford's will. The deed was witnessed by Michael Wallace, Jane Wallace, Dorothy Hillman. This land was adjacent to John Poythress' land." (http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/POYTHRESS/2006-01/1137183925)
Apparently this was when Thomas Burge moved to Jones Hole. He had a survey April 12 1712, for 196 acres "in the fork of Jones Hole Swamp, called the Rich Neck". On 16 Dec 1714 he received a patent for 196 acres, presumably the same 196 acres (Patent Bk 10, p198-9)
Another interesting fact: Thomas Burge was one of the witnesses to the will of Richard Bland, proved at Merchants Hope 12 April 1720. The other witnesses were John Fitzgerald and Michael Wallace (who like Burge was one of the witnesses to James Munford's deed to Bland, above).
