Book: IOW deed book 1 1688-1704
pg 315...8 Aug 1700....Henry Applewhaite to his son, Thomas Applewhaite, for love and affection...1/2 of a dividend of land near the Blackwater Branches (whereon my son formerly lived). Should Thomas Applewhaite not have a male heir, the land is to go to my son William Applewhaite...The other 1/2 of the dividend is to go to my son William, and if he does not have a male heir, this land is to go to my son John Applewhaite. Wit: Thomas Pitt, Henry Pitt, Nicholas Casey.
In a deed prior to this 1700 date there are signatures as witnesses: Henry Applewhaite, Henry Applewhaite Jr. This makes me assume that the above deed is that of JR. You may know differently than I.
The Blackwater Swamp was divided up into three branches in IOW County. The area would have been in the NW corner of the county I think.
