      Further records in St. Marys reveals the suit of THOMAS UELL against Mrs. MARGARET BRENT under date of November, 1649.

      Within the next two months THOMAS YOUELLE removed to Virginia, having established his residence in Northumberland County following the loss of Claiborne's cause in Maryland. A deposition given by THOMAS YOUELLE on February 16, 1650, was read in a court in St. Marys in a case in which JOHN STURMAN was plaintiff. The deposition was attested before an officer in Northumberland County, Virginia. On January 10, 1651, William Hardwick, of Nominy, Virginia, gave a power of attorney to JOHN STURMAN of St. Marys, which was witnessed by THO. YOUELL in Nominy. This portion of Northumberland was set off as Westmoreland County in July, 1653. JOHN STURMAN was a son of THOMAS STURMAN and brother of ANNE (STURMAN) YOWELL, wife of THOMAS YOWELL.

      In Virginia, on September 16, 1651, he was granted three hundred acres of land by Governor William Berkeley, for the transportation of six persons into the colony. The grant was in that part of the county set off in 1653 as Westmoreland County and is described as "On the South side of Potomack River abutting easterly on Nominy Bay, Northerly upon a creek which divides this land from the land of John Armsby; Easterly and Southerly into the main woods. ..." September 14, 1653, he was granted "One Hundred acres in Northumberland County on the North side of Armsbys Creek." July 20, 1655, "Assignment a patent for 500 acres on the South side of Potomack River, said land beginning at the mouth of a small creek that issues out of Nomoney River on the east side which divides this land from the land of JOHN CARTER Sr."

      The will of Thomas Kendall, dated November 9, 1646, leaves the residue of his estate to Thomas Youell in trust for his three children. The will of HENRY JAMES, dated April 27, 1645, proven September 23, 1646, leaves his house and plantation to THOMAS YEWELL.
