Re: Need land patent or deed record for 1771

Lois,
Your post was very helpful to many, I',m sure, except for this sentence:

Brunswick Co., and Sussex Co., VA are divided by Greenville Co., VA created in 1780/1

I'm not sure what you mean by "divided by" ---my arithmetic teacher in 1940 had a definition but it wasn't about counties--- but if it means, as it seems to, that Greensville ---NOT Greenville as you have it--- lay between Brunswick and Sussex, this is not true.

Greensville Co is to the south and slightly west of Sussex Co, and is east of the southern part of Brunswick Co.

I recommend to all readers these two helpful maps, one of which is a 1790 map but still current for this part of VA:
