THE Weather setting in very bad on the third Day of the Sale of Mr. Benjamin Grymes's Estate (before advertised by his Trustees) prevented the Whole from being sold, this is to give Notice that on the third Monday in May next, being Fair Day, will be sold, in Fredericksburg, on Credit till the 25th of April 1773, between twenty and thirty SLAVES, a tract of Land, containing two Thousand Acres, near Lewis's Bridge, which will be sold altogether, or in Parcels as can be agreed on at the Sale; also a Tract, containing sixteen Hundred Acres, adjoining Recovery Furnace Tract, a BRIG about one Hundred Tuns Burthen, several WAGGONS, CARTS, and their GEER, sundry BEDS and other HOUSEHOLD and KITCHEN FURNITURE, as well as all the BOOKS, and every Thing else belonging to the Estate of the said Grymes.

King George a deed dated May 31, 1786, from William Fitzhugh, of Marmion, and Hannah his wife. Also a deed dated March 6, 1780, from William Fitzhugh, of King George County, conveying to his son Daniel Fitzhugh, 1,200 acres "where Rappahannock Quarter now stands," purchase by John Fitzhugh, father of said William from John Lisle, merchant, of London, by deed dated October 26, 1725, and recorded in Lancaster Co., July 13, 1726. He was probably the William Fitzhugh, Jr., who was major in the Stafford militia in 1752 (Cal. Va. State Papers). It is possible that he, instead of William Fitzhugh, afterwards of Maryland (who, as appears from a deed, lived in Cople parish, Westmoreland, in 1744), was burgess for Stafford 1748 and 1751.

He states that he had provided for his sons, Daniel (McCarty) and Theoderick. Gives son John the negroes he had lent him. To son Philip the remainder of the estate not otherwise bequeathed. If son Robert should return to the State he is to have one shilling, "because at the commencement of the late war he quitted the business I had allotted for his living, since which I have heard nothing from him.' Son William Beverley Fitzhugh, two negroes. Daughter Lucy Campbell 600 pounds, Daughter Elizabeth 500 pounds if she marries, if not 25 pounds per year. Same provision for daughter Anna.
