A collection of historical and genalogical records
Of London and bound for England on the ship Providence of London, ready to sail. In regard of the further love and affection I bear to Miss Elizabeth Douglas daughter-in-law to Thomas Teackle, and in regard of Mary Douglas and to others now at sea, all my estate in Virginia now in the hands of Thomas Teackle except 1000 lbs of tobacco to Thomas Teackle. Witt: John Custis, John Robins- John Willett now qualified as Administrator of this estate See pages 83, 86, 102, I, incorrectly, called this a will. John Custis had recently arrived from Holland, bringing with him John Willett.
I have given thought to Norfolk, England, where Lt Colonel Edward Douglas had lived. It became obvious that as I gathered information on the marriage of Edward and his first wife that sources were not being shared. I was able to determine that Edward lived in the Mancroft-Norwich area of Norfolk and that Edward attended one of three churches that date back to the 15th century. These churches have baptismal records dating back- Saint Peter and Saint Stephen. The third, I think, is no longer with us. It appears that these two that their baptismal records have been copied by the Mormon Church and are available in Utah. I do not have access to them nor am I certain they will provide us with the information we require.
