1Berry was probably John Barry who lived down the Potomac from Mount Vernon and was clerk of Pohick Church.

2Charles Julian (d. 1764) kept a tavern on the main street in Fredericksburg. Mr. Allan was perhaps James Allan of Fredericksburg, a brother of John Allan from whose estate Charles Julian purchased in 1751 the lot and tavern on the corner of Amelia and Caroline streets.

3Thomas Dansie ran an ordinary and ferry on the Pamunkey River.
