Records prior to 1865 from Gloucester County, VA were destroyed. Very little information remains. I did find a 1946 reproduction of the "Records of Colonial Gloucester County, Virginia". On page 3 there are 2 descriptions of land owned by John Ashburn (Ashburne). Both names are included in this reproduction work. I assume the transcriber couldn't decipher the handwriting.
Next to the "John" is listed the following:
In Glocester County, book 4 page 488, 90 1/2 acres
Date 4 Nov 1685 (I don't know the significance of this date)
On W side of maine swamp at head of Ware R.

Next to "Esther" is listed the following:
In Glocester County, book 9 page 238, 104 acres
Widow of John Ashbourne. Escheat Land

Peter Beverley, Deputy, Richard Johnson, Escheator
Date 26 Oct 1699 (I don't know the significance of this date)
