This is Research, not a finished product. This is a compilation of my work, and other peoples submissions. There are placements in the database that are made to keep people together while I research where their proper placement should be in the database. Use this information as a lead, not an answer.

        William Swann patented 1,200 acres here, Nov. 5, 1635, "bounded West from Smiths Mount to the half way neck."

        Thomas Gray also patented 550 acres of land here 1635 "running along by Rolfe's Creek south into the woods upon the Cross Creeke."
        Col. Thomas Swann was a burgess, also a member of the Council of Sir William Berkley (1626).
