May 12, 2010. Comment - Melinda Lukei: Land Grants didn't mean that they were not on the land before the grants were issued. The person getting the grant sponsored a person or paid for passage of an individual and when he did he got 50 acres of land for that payment of that persons passage. The person coming in became a indenture servant for 7 years and then that person got 50 acres of land, a suit of clothes and a bible. All the grants for Knotts Island were given in Virginia and that's where you find the record. Every man, women and child counted.
August 22, 2010. Comment - Jane Brumley: I am looking for a grant or patent on a Frances Morse and have not yet found it. I am trying to clear up the fact that Morse Point was so named for him and he was also a vestryman in Princess Anne County. He was also mentioned in the 1710 - 1711 Philip Ludwell Journal. Philip Ludwell was a member of a commission that was "suppose" to complete a dividing line between Carolina and Virginia. However, the final dividing line was later completed by Col. Byrd in 1728.
