Yup! I was excited to fnd it too. I have a number of patents under that name, but none yet in that area. It's really descriptive of the surrounding plats, which is quite helpful with my current project of reconstructing the Potomac Neck grants.

NN Land Grant
21 October 1741
Mr. Marquis Calemes of Stafford
108 acres of wasteland in Stafford County on the upper side of Hope Creek. Beginning at the mouth of Hope Creek nigh the beginning of the Hope Patent. Extending thence along the Hope line WSW320P (5280) to a large white oak, corner of the Hope Patent on the upper side of the main run, and nigh the line of Waller and Masters, now in possession of Captain Chandler Fowke. Thence with Fowke SE104P (1716) down and across the run to an ancient marked pine, the beginning tree of the said patent, also corner of Major Hedgeman standing at the head of the aforesaid creek on a point of high land. Thence down the swamp N64E40P (660) to a large white oak, corner of Hedgeman. Thence still down the swamp N12P (198) to a white oak by the Hope Path. Thence crossing the head of the creek and down the same by the water course N44E50P (825), N62E134P (2211), N30E80P (1320) to the beginning.

Note that the upper border matches perfectly with the lower border of the original Hubbard grant! Yay!
