1. This is the first of GW’s yearly list of quitrents to be printed in its entirety in the Papers since that of 1764. Those not printed are in CD-ROM:GW. The only difference of any consequence between this list and the 1764 list is the addition of the 2,682 acres in Loudoun and Fauquier counties, land that GW bought in November 1767 when George Carter’s estate was finally being settled. See Cash Accounts, November 1767, n.26.
