Descendants of Jonathan Brookes

The Surveyors Book of Gloucester & Mathews County Virginia has the following two entries.
6 Sep 1754 . At the request of Mr. Thomas Brooks Exec of Mr. Jonathan Brooks, dec'd, I surveyed land in Gloucester County, Kingston Parish on Milford Haven.
10 Dec 1754 …divided this plot of land at the above request between Misters Thomas and Richard Brookes …which divided this platt equally according to the last Will and Testament of Mr. Jonathan Brooks, Dec'd.

Thomas Brookes later removed to Brunswick County, Virginia, and then to Caswell County, North Carolina. Brookes was the first county Treasurer in Caswell and later served as sheriff. He had a son and two grandsons also named Thomas living in Caswell, which makes the records somtimes difficult to sort. A daughter and a granddaughter both married into the Holderness family - the families had adjacent properties on Moon's Creek.
