- Page 332.--17th August, 1756. Jacob ( ) Anderson and Esther to Isaac Anderson, £9, 350 acres. (Note: although the Hildebrand Map shows Isaac Anderson as the original patentee in 1750, Chalkley's records show that his brother Jacob Anderson was originally conveyed the patent in 1750 (apparently because Isaac was not "of age" yet in 1750), who then sold it to his younger brother, Isaac).
- "Processioning" was the periodic review and agreement of property lines between settler's lands. Processioning Lists are useful in determining the general area of a settlers lands and their neighbors at specific time periods:
