From Rootsweb Message Board:

Jacob Manspeil patented land in 1734 on Deep Run. Apparently he came as a bachelor for he paid for his land with eight headrights, his own, Jacob Broyle, Rose Paulitz, Susanna Hance, Peter Hance, Margaret Hance, Catherine Hance, and Adam Hance. This is a varied set which has no Manspiels except himself. If I were studying his history I would not forget these names. The surname Hance may be a bit of a challenge. A tentative village has been put forth for Manspeil but his identity is not certain.
