Hi.In response to your note: "Most interesting is [CCR185] where Tanner Spruilll “Relinquish my Right of Dower to three hundred Acres of Land Given by my husband Godfrey Spruill unto our Son in Law John Stuart and to Anritta his wife and their heires as witness my hand and Seal this 20th march 1701/2. Tanner Spruill.”
My guess is that Tanner was the wife of Godfrey Spruill, Jr…."
This is the first I have seen of "Tanner".I have listed Anritta (Henrietta) as daughter of Godfrey & Joanna; and I show her married to John Stuart.It is possible that "Tanner" is some twisted varient of Joanna.Does she appear any where else??I am very interested in discussion of this.
