Does anyone have any information on the James Carter listed in these two land deeds?
In Deed Book 1, 1754-1759, page 167a:
Sep. 10, 1759 from Elisha Eastis of Amelia County, to Thomas Scott of P [Prince Edward County], executor and guardian to JAMES CARTER, for 80 pounds, a certain tract of land of 800 acres in P between Bri[e]ry and Bush Rivers & bounded by Parsons, Rudd, McGehee, Davis, ATWOOD, it being a tract of land patented to the said Eastis on Oct. 15, 1758. Signed - Elisha Eastis. Wit - none. Recorded Sep. 11, 1759 after Elisha Eastis acknowledged this deed to James Carter.
And in Deed Book 2, 1759 - 1765, page 130a:
Jul. 21, 1762 from Thomas Tabb of Amelia County, to William Atwood of P, for 35 pounds,a certain tract of land of 443 acres in P on the lower side of Little Briery River, it being part of a tract formerly granted to James Atwood and bounded by the lines of Thomas Scott, James Carter, Jacob McGehee, and Alexander Keene. Signed Thomas Tabb. Wit - none. Recorded Dec. 14, 1762.
I am convinced that there was some sort of intermarriage between the Atwoods and the Carters, maybe with James Carter, himself. The Atwood name gets carried in my Carter family inexplicably from about this time for two generations.
