Abraham Womack of Goochland Co, VA, continued

In an earlier post (http://rebgen.blogspot.com/2007/09/abraham-womack-bollings-quarter-branch.html), I wrote how I found this deed record online:


Goochland County, DEED BOOK 4, Page 239
Aug 15 , 1743 from Ashford Hughes of the Parish of St. James and Goochland, to Alexaander Wamack [incorrect!!!] of same, for 55 (Pounds), all that tract of land in Goochland on the south side of the James River and bounded by Bollings Quarter Branch, the branches of Muddy Creek, Womack, about 400 acres. Signed -Ashford Hughes. Wit- Charles Raley, Fras Amoss, Thomas Dillon. Recorded Sep 20, 1743..

I saw the microfilm of the actual deed today and it very clearly says Abraham Womack, NOT Alexander. It also says the land was on Womack's line.

Thus, Abraham Womack, son of the original Abraham (born circa 1644), owned 800 acres in Goochland - 400 bought from Ahford Hughes, and 400 in an adjacent parcel in a land patent dated 25 Aug 1731.

I also abstracted a 1747 deed of Abraham Womack to William Womack:

Goochland Co, VA Deed Book 5, p.352. 17 Nov 1747 - Abraham Womack Junior of Goochland Co to brother William Womack for "natural affection" 100 acres on Bollings Quarter Branch, "part of the survey that my father lived on". Wit: Richard Ligon, James Ligon, Sarah Ligon. Acknowledged by Abraham Womack in Goochland Court 17 Nov 1747.
