Abstract

Contains a petition of Simon Stubblefield to Lieutenant Governor William Gooch asking that a patent may issue in his name for five hundred acres in Spotsylvania County which lapsed from Thomas Dimmock. According to the petition, the petitioner's brother John Stubblefield, late of Gloucester County, was seized in fee simple of one thousand acres of land in Spotsylvania and had a right to five hundred acres by a certificate of the General Court. John Stubblefield devised eight hundred acres to his sons and seven hundred acres to petitioner including the five hundred acres which lapsed from Dimmock.
