Debbie, Sorry it has taken so long - Steve's grandfather did not have the book. He is over 90 now and the sons have split up a lot of his things now.
I ordered a copy of the Bruner book via Higginson Book Company and just got it. It does not list the wife of James Binford. This is what it says: James Binford on March 4, 1703, by Queen Anne and Wm. Randolph was granted 261 acres of land, at 2 lbs. of tobacco per acre, south of the James River in what was known as Charles City Co. but in 1703 was taken off and called Prince George Co. This deed was made in the courthouse of Charles City Co. but on June 16, 1714, was signed over by Alexander Spotswood at Williamsburgh.
Children listed for James Binford were:
1) John, who is given of Charles City Co, must have been born before the county was changed; we know him in the records as the father of James and Agnes.
2) Thomas, who married Elizabeth and located in Henrico Co., made his will which is on record, in 1752.
3) Peter, who married Rebecca in 1734, was granted land by King George in 1735 and signed it over in 1737.
