1770 Land Transfer from Edmond Lindsey Sr. to Jacob Lindsey

 


These excerpts are from Frederick Co. VA Deed Book 13, pages 223-226: Lease and Release of land from Edmond Lindsey Sr. to proven son Jacob Lindsey, on March 1 and 2, 1770.  This is shown on Thorndale Letter 3, page 7.  The land being transferred is shown by Thorndale as Parcel E. See his comments on the image of the map below, just above the portion colored yellow..."161 acres Jacob had bought in 1770 from Edmund L. Sen. (E-13:223)".

Release, Pgs. 224-225 (Note how the language has changed.  Edmund Rice and Edmund Lindsey Jr. have now become Edmund Rice and Hezekiah Lindsey.  The lease cited Hollingsworth.. E. Lindsey Jr. corner, but the release states Hollingsworth & Hezekiah Lindsey's corner.)

William Thorndale Letter 3, page 7: I have colored the map below to make it easier to sort out by owner. Yellow denotes land owned by Thomas Lindsey, son or brother of Edmond Lindsey Sr. Purple is land owned by Edmond Lindsey Jr., presumed son of Edmond Lindsey Sr., and green is the land, Parcel E, being transferred through lease and release on March 1 and 2, 1770 from Edmond Lindsey Sr. to Jacob Lindsey, his proven son. Hollingsworth's land, mentioned in the lease and release, was just south of Parcel E. The jagged black line I drew in is my crude attempt to show where the Long Marsh was as Thorndale didn't draw it in on this map:

 

 

It appears that the land owned by Hezekiah Lindsey referred to in the release, above,  must be the purple area west of Parcel E that is not labeled.  Thorndale shows this parcel as belonging to Edmond Lindsey Jr., who is shown as the owner in the lease.  Hezekiah Lindsey never appeared in any land transactions in Frederick Co. that I know of as a seller or buyer, so why he is shown as an adjacent owner on this deed of release is a mystery to me.  But it does make me think that Hezekiah was probably a brother of Edmond Lindsey Jr., and therefore perhaps a son of Edmond Lindsey Sr., b. c. 1697, who married Elizabeth Beasley in Baltimore Co., MD in 1725.
