The Land Grant to Cornelius Howard to transport of William Petticoate

A copy of the Land Grant to Cornelius Howard for the transport of William Petticoate appears in Liber FF (10) page 498: The grant was for 200 acres, 100 acres due to the assignment of rights to land by Samuel Howard to Cornelius Howard and 100 acres due for the transportation of John Thomas and William PETTICOATE.
