When Charles Blair Tavenner made his compilation of Loudoun Co residents he did not give any sources for his data. His handwriting was also very tiny, making it difficult to read the photocopies at Balch Library.

From "Index to Loudoun Co Deed Books, A-Z" by Pat Duncan:

Bk:Pg: G:147 Date: 13 Jun 1769 Returned to court: 13 Jun 1769
Robert SANDFORD of Ldn to Palser HESS of Ldn. Assignment of lease of 150ac on N side of Broad Run.

Bk:Pg: K:189 Date: 9 May 1774 Returned to court: 9 May 1774
William BUCHANON of Ldn to Abraham HESS of Ldn. Assignment of lease of 180ac. Wit: Richard ROGERS, Charles WEST.

Bk:Pg: M:048 Date: __ Jan 1778 Returned to court: 12 May 1778
Abraham HESS of Ldn to Joel WHITE of Ldn. Assignment of lease of 180ac. Wit: Wm. VEALE, Wm. BLINCO, George MASON, Jno. HERYFORD.

Hess, William; Hess, Henry & Hess, Jno. - 3 tithables, List taken by John Alexander for Cameron Parish for 1778
Hess, William - 1 tithable, List taken by Jas. Jenings, Gent. [for 1780]
Hess, Wm. - 1 tithable, List taken by William Stanhope for 1781

You will note in the names sent to you by Bryan Fisher that the name Abraham is not included in the list for 1775 in Cameron. Note that an Abraham appears in the above lists. It is quite possible that either Mr. Tavenner read the name incorrectly, or Bryan had difficulty with the photocopy.

I also checked the Order Books during that period and found no Wersham Hess.
