> I have the Vestry Book of Stratton Major Parish and the info within it.
> The parish was about 18 miles by 8 miles and had 190-200 families.
> There are land grants for a John Garrett in 1665 getting land on
> Hartquip (Heartquake) Swamp that I believe is tied in somehow but
> how I don't know. It may be the same John owning land in 1704 below.
> I have Humphrey Garrett owning land in Lunenburg Co. between 1752 and
> 1783. This person may have been the same as the one in King & Queen
> as the distance between the 2 places is about 90 miles. I don't have
> any direct evidence back to K & Q except for the marriage of James'
> sister Anne to Richard Wyatt (of K & Q). The tax lists for 1704 have
> Humphrey owning 200 acres, a John Garrett owning 330 acres, and a Robert
> Garrett owning 200 acres in K & Q. I've also found Humphrey listed as
> a witness for Jehu Nicholls (of K & Q) who was selling 500 acres of land
> in Middlesex Co. in Feb. 1724. This record was filed in Gloucester Co.
> Christ Church Register (Middlesex, VA) lists Humphrey & Ann Garratt
> with son Thomas in 1746 and sons John & James (no complete date).
> Rebecca Camp's will was witnessed by Humphrey Garrett, Jr. in James City
> on Feb. 26, 1797. There's a will for Humphrey Garrett in Lunenburg Co.
> in W.B. 6 pg. 92 & 92. It lists wife Hannah, sons William, Richard, John
> Mason, & Humphrey and daughters Martha Rudder, Mary, Jane Moore, and
> Elizabeth Pearce. Date is 7/27/1795 and 4/14/1803. Robert Garrett's will
> in Lunenburg Co. (W.B. 3 pg. 311 5/5/1777 & 4/10/1788) mentions brothers
> Humphrey and James Garrett and sisters Margaret Parker, Anne Wyatt, and
> Sarah Singleton. I've also found a Humphrey Garrett in Cumberland Parish
> tax lists (Lunenburg Co. I believe) in 1764, 1769, 1772, 1773, & 1774.
> By the way, the courthouse was burned twice. The records for the early
> period (pre-1790 were already gone by 1864 when it was burned again.
> One other thing I've come across recently is that Humphrey Garrett
> (of K & Q) owned land in North Carolina.
