      === Research note from Anne Baker
      In the early years he signed his name with a bold florid signature - " Phillipe Chirrout" - have a photocopy. Later clerks americanized the name as Philip Sherwood. Remember that he was listed as an "alien", thus he was not born in any British territory or the US. I think it is french.

But it evidently made appear that Mary and Martha the two eldest daughters of the sd Philip Sherwood were of full age and did Consent to the division of the land and seriously weighing the matter have ordered that the division of the sd land already made to continue good and firme untill such time as the youngest Sister, daughter of the sd Phillip Sherwood shall move for a new division thereof.
