Processioning

The following two sets of processioning data seem to cover the area between the Forks of the James north to the southern boundary of Beverley's Manor. (see also, Old Augusta Processioning Data for 1748 for a complete set of the 1748 processioning data). These data were collected in the Spring of 1747/48, a date within 5 years of the death of Benjamin Borden. As a result, the list of land owners whose property was processioned should correspond well to those depicted on Hildebrands map. In point of fact relatively few of these owners of processioned land appear on this map, and more importantly, relatively few of those depicted on Hildebrands map, also appear on this list of processioned land owners. This suggests that the list of processioned land owners is incomplete. More critically, the fact that we have so many landowners in the area but not appearing on Hildebrands map, suggests that additional work here would be fruitful. (ie, are this land owners really present on Borden's grant, or does the processioned area encompass a much larger area? Even so, why were so few of land holdings of the Borden's Grant actually processioned?
