      At the request of John Beale Jr, the following deposition was recorded on Feb 4, 1748[/9].
      Richard Beale of Essex County, Virginia, aged about 46, deposes that either in Jun or Aug, 1723, at Marlborough, he, the sd Richard met with John Diggs & offered sd Diggs to divide between sd Diggs and sd Beal the land his father recovered of sd Diggs called Durham, which sd Diggs refused. This deponent further says that he offered Diggs 30,000 lbs tobacco for his right, or else to divide [it] between them. Sd Diggs said he would not sell it except he sold all the land he had joining it to it. This deponent said that he was not able to buy it all, but thought he had a right to what his father had recovered, but that Diggs, having more money than this deponent, he was willing to sit down with half and to settle law suits cease. Diggs answered that this deponent was mistaken, and that if he would go home with him, he would show him his right. This deponent answered that he did not understand the law, and to show him his papers should signify nothing. This deponent says further that Mr. John Diggs offered to buy his right, to which this deponent says he told Diggs he did not care to sell. Diggs said that sd Richard might as well have something for it, for he was well satisfied his father did not intend to let him have any of it, as long as he lived, & he was as likely to live as this deponent .. oath he uses in your favor, and you were to have when you came to age, which your father suingment to Mr. Bordly and Mr. Dullany and got a skin of parchment and got the Actners Drawer over and his own name put in it and by this means, especially Mr. Bordley, got Mr. Hart to sign it, quite contrary to the intent of both houses, which Diggs said was a very roguish action. This deponent says that his father showing him such foul play and doing so unfairly by him was the only inducement for him to sell his right, resolving that he would have something and not his father have all. This deponent further says that at Marlborough, before the conveyance was signed, his father, Mr. John Beal, came into the house where we met to sign, viz, Mr. Wm Diggs, Mr. John Diggs, Wm Middleton, myself, and the 2 Justices, Mr. Robert Tyler and Mr. Thomas Sprigg. My father used many arguments to persuade me to not to sign until he had taken advice, which Mr. John Diggs opposed, threatening to sue my bond that I had given him for 1000 pounds, if I did not then & there sign. But when my father, by his arguments, had almost persuaded me not to sign, Mr. William Diggs called this deponent aside and told him he would advise him to sign, for if he didn't, he was sure his brother would sue his bond, to which this deponent replied that he was not willing to sign now, and thereby have his father's curse, to which sd William Diggs answered, you are past a child and are your own man. Your father's curse will be nothing to you. I will reconcile your father to you and will give you a pistole if you will sign now, which he did then and there put into deponent's hand. This deposition taken Jun 12, 1728 before us - Geo: Dent, Robert Yates.
