Don, I hope you are still monitoring this board.
I would like to contact someone who is familiar with the Figg family of Gloucester County, Va, or any of the adjoining counties.
I have a copy of a copy of the Gloucester County Surveyor’s Book A 1733-1810 65-921.
I can’t make out half of the writing but I think the gist of it is saying that:
a John Figg died intestate in 1795 and the corresponding diagram shows how his land was divided up among his heirs.
It looks like :
Parcel no 1 (90 acres) went to Thomas Oliver,
Parcel no 2 (110 acres) went to John Figg & Thomas Wiatt (I wonder why this lot was shared between the two ?),
Parcel no 3 (76 acres) went to the children of Jonathan Lyell,
Parcel no 4 (140 acres) went to John Johnson.
Who was this John Figg who died in 1795 ?
I would like to know the connection between the Figgs and the Wiatts.Anyone know ?
Was John Figg possibly a grandfather to Thomas Wiatt, Thomas' mother being Mary Figg ?
I am also searching for a Thomas Figg or a James Figg who would have been born around 1700.
