Deposition named in*18 May 1682He was named in a deposition on 18 May 1682 at Accomack Co, VA. Deposition of David Alford aged about 27 years: Last March, David’s master (Richard Jones, Jr.) ordered him to look after his cattle in Jones’ absence. When David heard the barking of dogs in Mattcheton’s Neck, he went toward the noise. Once there, he saw Joseph Milby, Wm. White, Jr., George Russell and Thomas Jenkins. When asked “their business” Milby said “that they were catching of his mother’s horse” and asked David if he would lend a hand. Though he had been in the field already, David went with them. When David, Milby, White and Phillip Lecat were near the farther side of the field, they saw several horses and mares. As they were driving the horses between the creek and the fences, David fell behind the rest and noticed about half a spoonful of blood in a hoofprint. When David caught up with the group, Milby told him to “look well in the branches, for there was a creature dead.” Milby, White and Lecat went up the branch and left David, who found a mare lying in the water. He “took hold of the said mare’s head and looked upon her and lifted up her head and found that there was breath in her, and so (I) took the said mare by the tail and pulled her from the water until she was almost dry and tied her tail to the stake of a fence.” When he looked under her ears, he saw holes, like she had been bitten by dogs. David knew that the mare belonged to Thomas Hall, who often asked David to help catch her to be branded. Signed and sworn in open court 18 May 1862, by David Allford. Deposition of William White, Jr., aged about 18 years: Last March when White was looking for some animals near the field at Craddock belonging to Mr. Thomas Teakle, Phillip and John Lecat, Jr., came and asked him to help look for their mother’s horse. White went with them into Matchetan’s Neck, which belonged to Widow Huit; they met Joseph Milby, George Russell and Thomas Jenkins and found the horse in with a group of mares belonging to Thomas Hall. They tried to catch the horses, and as they tried, John Milby’s dog followed along, barking until they drove the horses into the creek, at which time Joseph Milby “checked the said dog and brought him off. And then the horses run by us and the dog run after them again.” When the horses ran over the gut, the dog stayed behind until the dogs with David Davinson started barking at the horses. Then Milby’s dog joined the others, one of which caught a horse by the hamstring as it was going up the bank. “Joseph said it was ten to one that the dogs would have one of the horses down, and the said Joseph Milby said that the dog was a devil when he was hot.” The barking dogs followed the horses till they were out of sight; White, Milby, George Russell and Thomas Jenkins went around the head of the gut and met David Davinson on the other side. Russell, Jenkins and John Lecat, Jr., crossed Widow Huitt’s plantation; Phillip Lecat, Milby, David and White stayed behind to catch Milby’s mother’s horse. They found the horses again in the point field, but White did not see any dogs; when the horses were driven down the branch, the dogs met them again. A little later Milby said that they had gotten one down. He called to David and said that a horse was dead. David replied, “Your dog hath killed it.” Joseph said, “I have but one dog.” White saw some blood on the water. Signed and sworn in open court on 18 May 1682, by William White.4 
Deposition named in19 June 1688He was named in a deposition on 19 June 1688 at Accomack Co, VA. Deposition of Robert Higgins: Sometime last August or September, while Higgins was "lazing upon a couch at his quarters," John Lecate and his wife said that John Smally's mare had been in their cornfield last night. They tried to catch her, but she escaped. When they went "to beat cider" they left word with their children to take one of Abraham Taylor's sons with them and "go to Barnard's field and catch her and handle her as they had given directions." Signed and sworn in open court on 22 February 1687/88, by Robt. Higgins. Deposition of William Tayler aged about 20 years: About last June, Tayler saw John Lecatt's son Phillip whip John Smally's white mare with a small switch for going in Lecatt's "milosed" ground. Later he saw Smally's black mare tied in the lane with a rope. Tayler had seen both mares in the "milosed" ground when the wheat was ready to be cut. Signed and sworn in open court on 2 April 1688, by Wm. ( ) Taylor. Deposition of Elizabeth Fletcher aged about 33 years: About last August, John Lecatt and his wife came to Elizabeth's house and complained that John Smally's black mare had been in a patch of "their rare ripe corn" but had leaped out, and they could not catch her. Lecatt's wife said she had sent word to Abraham Taylor's boy to catch her in Barnet's field, for she was through dealing with Smally. She had left orders for her boys to "take such course with (the mare) that she might trouble them no more." Elizabeth "replied that if she had left such order with her boys, they would beat (the mare) to death." Elizabeth advised Mrs. Lecatt to send word to Smally, which she did. Some time later, Elizabeth saw the black mare lying dead near Lecatt's house; the mare had "a long pole tied close to her neck with a piece of rawhide." Elizabeth had heard John Lecat say that Smally's white mare had not been in his cornfield that year. Signed and sworn in open court on 3 April 1688, by Elizabeth (E) Fletcher. Deposition of Robert Andrews aged 21 years: Some time last fall, Abram Tayler, Jr., came and said that John Smally wanted Andrews to come and view his black mare, which was dead. Andrews, along with several others, went and saw the mare lying dead. She had an eight-foot pole tied to her neck in such a way that the sharpened end "went to her throat." Signed and sworn in open court on 2 April 1688, by Robt. Andrews. Deposition of Abraham Tayler aged about 26 years: Sometime last July or August, Abraham heard John Smally tell John Lecate to catch Smally's mares and send word; Smally would come for them.

Taylor aged about 16 years: Last year Tho. had been with young John Lecatt near Barnett's field in Pungoteague and saw John Smally's white mare (the one now in dispute); she followed the boys up to John Lecat's lane. John, Jr., ran up to catch her, but she leaped into the cornfield. When John went in after her to turn her out, she leaped into the yard. That was when "old John Lecatt took her and put a rope about her neck and tied her in the sheep house. Next morning, young Jno. Lecatt took a switch and beat her at the end of the lane by his father's order, and old Jno. Lecat took a piece of a bedsted and plugged up her tail into it."

John Lecatt, Jr., showed that he had an interest in a patent on 221 acres according to a survey made by Lt. Col. Edmund Scarburgh.

John asked that the land be laid out according to the intent of the deed dated 1678. The court ordered that Lt. Col.

After he presented the signatures of most of his neighbors, the court ordered that the new road "be cleared and grubbed well thirty foot wide at least before ye other is stop(ped) up and that he keep ye said road in good repair." Anxious to be rid of the rerouted road, Lecat jumped the gun and was soon back in court for "stopping up ye Queen('s) Roads."
