Land leased named in*31 January 1664/65He was named in a land lease on 31 January 1664/65 at tract N46, between Eastville & Cherition on Seaside, Northampton Co, MD.

If all 4 sons died in their minority then to "my loving Neice Susanna Harmanson." (NOTE: Whitelaw shows Joane as a daughter of the William Andrews (1600-1656) who bought the land from Thomas Taylor in 1643, but he had died in 1656, so it must have been his son William Andrews (1630-1673) who gave the lease and he was giving it to his sister Joane who was not named in William Andrews' will in 1656, as the lease mentions that if all 4 of the sons die, then the land was to go to "my niece Susanna Harmanson.")2,3
