State land records show that John Atkins owned 1,076 acres of land in
1839. This land adjoined land owned by Mr. Roderick Bland and Mr. John
Mann. These land records fo back to 1782 and the Atkins Family Land in
the southern end of King & Queen County is recorded each year. Some of
this land John Atkins got by deed from Lewis I. Atkins (how is he related to my John ATKINS?), John Mann and
William Taylor (is he Nancy TAYLOR's father?). Gloucester County records dated June 17, 1832,show that
John Atkins, Mrs. Sidford Vaughan (who was Lucy Atkins) and John
Mitchell, son of William Mithcell and May Atkins, were the only three
survivors of Lewis Atkins. SOme records say that John Atkins deeded land
