    "Samuel Prewett of County of Pittsylvania of one part and Champness Terry of same County of other part ... for 50 L Current Money of Virginia ... 350 acres on both sides Birtches Creek ... crossing two branches. No. witness." (Deed dated 26 August 1768, Recorded 26 August 1768 - Pittsylvania County, Virginia Deed Book 1, page 153.)

    "Champness' will was dated Sep 14, 1775 naming his wife, Sarah, daughter, Sarah, sons, Champness and David, and a child yet unborn. He died 96th District, South Carolina. It was not an unusual thing to have a convict schoolmaster, since men were shipped to Virginia and sold into servitude for political offenses and for debt. These white servants were known as "indentured", for after serving their masters for a certain number of years they became free. An instance ofindentured servitude is given in the court minutes of May, 1768, when Champness Terry came into court and declared Matthew Durham and Jane his wife to be setfree, although they were due him one year's service. Mr. Terry for some reason gave Durham and his wife one year of their servitude, his generosity probably being a reward for faithful duty." (Scott Schaffer)

    THE HISTORY of PITTSYLVANIA COUNTY VIRGINIA
    CHAPTER VIII PITTSYLVANIA BECOMES A COUNTY IN 1767
    It was not an unusual thing to have a convict schoolmaster, since men were shipped to Virginia and sold into servitude for political offenses and for debt. We may suppose that Mr. Henry Williams, needing a schoolmaster in his family, had gone down to port and purchased one, then did not wish to lose him after such short service. These white servants were known as "indentured," for after serving their masters for a certain number of years they became free. Another instance of indentured servitude is given in the court minutes of May, 1768, when Champness Terry came into court and declared Matthew Durham and Jane his wife to be set free, although they were due him one year's service. Mr. Terry for some reason gave Durham and his wife one year of their servitude, his generosity probably being a reward for faithful duty.

    Will dated 14 Sep. 1775, probated in 96th Dist., SC - SC Records ofWills,
    Vol. 17, Book B, p. 373. They had migrated from PittsylvaniaCo., VA to
    the
    96th by November, 1770. There, Champness was Colonel of the Militia and
    represented his district in the assembly.

    "Colonel Champness Terry of Ninety-Six District, Abbeville, S.C.
    He was elected to the Colony Congress about 1775-1776, but declined.
