On 27 July 1672 a warrant was issued to lay out to Thomas Thompson 300 acres or so much as was contained between the lands to be laid out to George Beadon and Hugh Carterett to the South and Henry Simonds to the North. This acreage being allowed to Thomas Thompson and his wife as having arrived in the first fleet A grant was made on 15 April 1683 to Thomas Thomson but for only 100 acres within the same bounds. The writer has never been able to locate this grant as being the source of title to any subsequent holders. It probably was treated at abandoned and escheated, and seems to have been included in the later holdings of Mrs. Elizabeth Lindrey and John Watkins.
