Ulrich Fulwider's land (Beverley Manor SW, # of acres not specified, date not listed) as shown on the map meticulously drawn by J.R. Hildebrand, cartographer. This map is copyrighted©, used by permission of John Hildebrand, son of J.R. Hildebrand, April, 2009. (Note: the tract labeled as "Fulwiler" in the southwest section of the Beverley Manor Map is undoubtedly one of the two "entries in Beverley's Lands" (Beverley Manor) listed in Ulrich Fulwider's will, as shown below. The number of acres of this tract or exact date of transaction does not seem to appear in the Chalkley's records. The other "entry" was probably the land acquired from William Kerr, listed below).
