      Prince William Soldiers in the Prince William County Court Minutes 1778-1784
      In August 1783, Valentine Peyton proved to the Court that he was the heir-at-law to George
      Peyton, decd, formerly an ensign in the 3rd Virginia regiment. Val Peyton came into court to claim
      his right to the lands promised by the Act of Assembly to officers and soldiers of the Virginia Line. It
      appeared to the court that George Peyton had died in 1777 and was in Continental service at his death.
