      Pursuant to the order of last Mar CC Court, Commission issued to examine witnesses touching the bounds of a tract of land called Hook Norton, in the possession of the inhabitants of Durham Parish, as follows, viz - to Walter Hanson, John Barker, William Dent, and William Winter, Gent. Whereas the inhabitants of Durham Parish, seized of a tract of land called Hook Norton, lying in CC, did on Mar , being in the 27th year of our Dominion, prefer their petition to CC Court on the day afd, before Robert Hanson and his associates, CC Justices, for Commission to examine witnesses to prove and perpetuate the memory of the bounds of the sd tract of land, know that we have given you (not being any way related to the petitioner, contiguous proprietor, nor interested in sd land) power to examine witnesses as afd.
      Signed Mar 13, 1741 - Edm'd Porteus, Cl.
      And now here, Walter Hanson, William Dent, & William Winter, return to this Court, the Commission afd with the certificate and depositions following, viz -
      We met upon the sd land on May 22, 1742, and took the deposition of all such witnesses as were offered to us in relation to the bounds of the land afd. Signed - Walter Hanson, William Dent, William Winter.

      The deposition of Thomas Lambeth, age about 59, who declares that Mr. Joseph Harrison, some time before his death, and this deponent, were walking near where this deponent now stands, being near the main branch of Burdits Cr, about 1/2 mile above a mill belonging to Joseph Hanson Harrison, and the sd Joseph Harison, now decd, pointed downwards into the sd branch, and told this deponent that there stood a bounded maple, the 1st bounded tree of a tract of land called Verlinda, and this deponent further says that he has since looked for the sd tree, but never could find any such tree, nor did he see the tree when he was with the sd Jos: Harrison. Signed - Thomas (T his mark) Lambeth.

      The deposition of William Smith Sr, age about 54, who declares that, about 18-20 years ago, Mr. Joseph Harrison, now decd, told this deponent that, upon the fresh side of Burdicts Cr, at the mouth of a Little Branch, there stood a bounded maple which was the 1st bound tree of the afd tract of land called Verlinda, & that the sd tree was then down, but that this deponent, to the best of his knowledge, never saw the sd tree, and further says that the place above mentioned, is about 1/2 mile above the mill mentioned in Thomas Lambeth's deposition. Signed - Wm (H his mark) Smith Sr

      Page 108. At the request of Jos'h Harrison of CC, gent, the following deed was recorded Dec 10, 1723.

      Nov 2.5, 1723 from Wm Stone of CC, gent, to Jos'h Harrison (son of R'd Harrison) of CC, for 20 shillings sterling, and for the sd Jos Harrison's marrying his daughter Virlinda, and for divers other valuable considerations, all that tract of land in CC known by the name of Virlinda's, formerly held and occupied by Benoni Thomas who, dying without issue, [it] became the right of sd Wm Stone by the will of Virlinda Stone decd (patentee of the sd land), bounded by the north side of the main fresh run of Burditts Cr, containing 300 acres, as by certificate of the survey granted to the sd Virlinda Stone dated Jun 17, 1663. Signed-Wm Stone.
      Wit -Thomas Stone*, Gusta. Brown*, Thomas Stone Jr. This deed was
      acknowledged by Wm Stone and Theodosia, his wife.

      The William Stone who is giving the land to his son-in-law is the one who married Theodocia Wade. I have never seen any lineage give a William Stone as the son of John, and in the usual transcription of Verlinda (Graves) Stone's will, no mention is made of who would receive the land if Benoni
      dies without heirs.

      Also, this is usually given as the abstract of the will of her son, John Stone. I have been assured that the phrase "testator's mother" is a correct reading, though I haven't seen the micro-film for myself.
