The church vestry appointed William Harris to be the surveyor of the a new road in the forks, and William TERRELL, on the south side of the river, was ordered to sassist him in clearing and making a road. The land abetween the North Anna and the South Anna Rivers, near where they came together to for the Pamunkey, was often referred to as "the Forks," William olived in the same area as Capt. Littlepage, John Blalock, Edward Garland and Thomas Carr. his land was repeatedly described as near the land of these neighbors, in the same precinct, in the processioning lists of St. paul's parish. it is believed that he continued to live on this same land. There is no record of how much land he owned in St. Paul's parish, hanover Co., Va. He was in Hanover Co. at the same time as Timothy and Richmond Terrell II. 3a. Lived on Pamunka, a small River passing between Richmond and Fredericksburg into the Rappahannock. The peninsula formed by the stream and the Potomac forms the Northern Neck of Virginia. "There and thus he and his wife dug the ground, made tobacco, broght Africans very low and become independent." 1c. Patented 300 acres of new land on the southwest side of Polecat Swamp in King William Co. VA 1c Patented 100 acres on the north side of the Pamunkey Ri er, King william Co. VA. He did not cultivate this land. 1c. 1716 Acquired 400 acres in Polecat Swamp, King Willian Co. VA 1c. 1717: Acquired 400 acres in Polecat Swamp, King William Co. VA with his son William. 1c. 1718: Jan. William Terrell, Sr. patented 200 acres on the Polecat, King William Co. VA. 1c. 1718: Was awarded 400 acres on both sides of the north fork of Polecat Creek, King William Co. VA. 1. In all, just the land aptents in Polecat Creek area amounted to 1820 acres. These all appear to be patents that can be identified as those of William Terrell, Sr. From the descriptions of the land, there do not appear to be any repatents of the same land. 1d. He had extensive holdings on the south side of the north fork of Polecat Creek, and later, on both side. 1d. He aquired a reputation of having 18 children in 10 years when someone later totaled his acreage in land patents, because settlers in the King William-Caroline Co. VA frontier were awarded 50 acres for each child that they claimed. He appears to taken up considerably more land than even that. 1a. 1725, Mar: Deeded land on Polecat swamp to son David. 1e. 1733, Mar: William Terrell or his son William bought land from Ephraim Richard Littlepage adjoining John Gibson, a little below the fork of the river next to land of Richard Harris. 1b. 1743, 18, nov.: THe land of William Terrell was ordered processioned, St. Pauls's Parish, hanover Co. VA 3a. "He was a tall, long, hungry, coarse man, with bones vastly wanting of flesh, black hair and eyes, brows like two conjugal ;owls, mouth like the poor man's louse, and a nose like an elephant's proboscis, one whole foot long. His voice was hard, keen and loud, and bursted forth like the very elements with an unearthly sepulchral tone: and when irritated ito its tip, little mean and crippled devils might tremble...He was honest and respectable, but his command came to his quare, and so did others, or all dealings broke."

William Terrell lives in the part of New Kent that became Hanover Co. He lived on the South Side of the Pamunkey River, near the junction of the North Anna and South Anna Rivers, in an area called "the forks." We should note that some historians believe this William (the one who marries Susannah Waters) is in fact the William we show as RIN #1618, the brother of Richmond Terrell. We believe that William probably didn't stay in Virginia, but returned to England. is NOT responsible for the content of the GEDCOMs uploaded through the WorldConnect Program.
