Land patented*1705He patented land in 1705 at Northampton Co, VA. It was in this year that Deveraux and Joseph Godwin received a patent for 100 acres "on Ege Island." It is not clear whether this was for the GODWIN's (sometimes GOODWIN's) ISLAND of today, but the similarity of this name to that of the purchasers is significant. No disposition by either Godwin was noted. No patent of early date was found for what today is called SHIP SHOAL ISLAND. The name was observed occasionally in deed books, but no effort was made to trace the early history. In 1877 Jesse T. Hutchinson received a state warrent for a total of 855 acres of GODWIN's and SHIP SHOAL ISLANDS. In 1890 GODWIN's ISLAND was sold for taxes to A.B. Lafferty.2
