I am very interested in Nightingale Dalby. I am a descendant of Knight and Ann Bullock Dalby. The two documents you mention are the two earliest I've seen for Nightingale. I would love to find a copy of the original indenture referred to by Judge Dalby. I have only a typed copy of the text.

I do have two other documents involving Nightingale. The first is a purchase on 13 June 1735 of 20 acres of land on Hinson's Creek in Hanover Co. VA for 5 pounds. (Hanover Co. probate & land records, p. 281)

The other is a bond for the administration of the will of John Howlett, dated 9 July 1744. (Louisa Co. VA Deed Book A p. 150. Howlett's will is on A-177). Nightingale is the executor of the will. Maybe this was his father-in-law?

Hanover and Spotsylvania counties are adjacent to each other. Louisa county was formed from Hanover in 1742. The Dalbys and Bullocks of the next generation lived in Hanover County before moving to NC.

You can see the text and images of all these documents in the "Sources" column on this page:
