This is one of those wonderful books that I have learned to think: "He just doesn't charge enough for the work that goes into publication"
Lunenburg County was formed out of Brunswick County in 1746. It was a huge county and probably had just enough settlers to ask the Virginia assembly to make a more convenient County Seat to serve these settlers who were on the Western Frontier.
Mr. Dodson says that in the middle of the 18th Century, there were three actions of settlers: 1. entry, 2. survey, and 2. grant of patent. This book indexes the surveys in land that later became Halifax and Pittsylvania Counties.
The Webb men that are mentioned are Martin, Merah, Merry, Thomas and William. All had surveys made between 1747 and 1768. Four of the surveys were made in April 1768 for Martin, Merry, Merry, and Thomas.
