In later entries, John Payne and Nathaniel Ayres are again mentioned in the Antrim Parish Vestry Book.

In Nov. 1758, John Payne along with Miles Jennings and Thomas Harbour were appointed to "procession" the "bounds" of every parcel of land within a certain area. (That apparently meant they were to identify the owners and the boundary lines of each parcel.)

The area of Payne's responsibility was described as follows: "...beginning where the Cuntry line Crosses smiths River Encluding all between the line and Maribone Creek all the waters of the horse Pasture & the Mayo River unto the Ridge...."

The notes of the Nov. 1760 meeting state: "To Nathaniel Ayres for Sundries found said [Astins?] child - Do- 200."

Above this entry regarding Ayres was payment to someone else for caring for the child, who was apparently an orphan. The "Do" meant "ditto," that is, the phrase "one year at" was not repeated.

In the Nov. 1760 meeting minutes is also an entry regarding a person I believe joined the South River Monthly Meeting:

"Ordered that five hundred pounds Tob'o be paid out of the Depositum to such person as will take the care of Agnes Farmer a Poor object to be Dispossed of by the Church Wardens to such Person as shall be willing to take her."

In the Journal of Proceedings of the South River Monthly Meeting, Agnes Farmer requested to be received into membership in June 1758. She and her husband, Henry Farmer, were accepted as members in Dec. 1758.

In the Antrim Parish Vestry Book minutes of the 28 Nov. 1761 meeting is an entry directing a refund of the Parish levy collected from Nathaniel Ayres the preceding year:

"Order that the Collector pay Nath'l Ayres out of the Depositum twenty pounds Tob'o for a levie wrong listed last year."

The Parish levy for the previous year was 20 pounds of tobacco per "poll."
