Borum family in DE, 1749
Anyone on this forum have any information on early Borums in Delaware? I recently came across the following deed. I believe that this may be part of a family estate and all those named are Borum siblings, including Gertrude, wife of William McKindley and Jane wife of Lewis Jetter [?].
I don’t know if I am a Borum descendant, unless I can prove that the William McKindley and Gertrude his wife, are my ancestors.
New Castle County, Delaware Deeds, Book Q, Vol. 1, p. 316, 1749 [FHL Film No. 0006561]:
“This indenture witnesseth that Henry Borum and Mary his wife, Nicholas Borum and Ann his wife, Thomas Borum and Elienor his wife, John Borum and Ann his wife, and Jacob Borum, and Lewis Jetter [?] and Jane his wife, and Wm McKindley and Gertrude his wife, of the one part and Ann Borum of the other part, for and in consideration sum of two pounds six shillings current lawful money of pensylvania.”
I don’t know if the Ann Borum who bought this land is another sibling or the mother of these Borum children, unfortunately the copy of the deed is hard to decipher. I will have to get back to the library and see if I can get better copies.
I would be interested in knowing if anyone has any information on this family.
