John Glew's Will, Richmond Co., VA; 1720

I put in a few key words and nothing came up; apparently no one is searching for this family in Virginia. I am no related, but have ancestors who lived in the same area, and are mentioned in the will. I do not have the book #, but it was dated May 16, 1720:

"I, John Glew, being sick and weak in body - To George Taylor, the son of Simon Taylor - 100 acres, which I desire may be my plantation. To my 2 sisters, Mary and Elizabeth Mackguyer - the rest of my land, to be equally divided between them. To John Taylor, the son of Simon Tayler - my horse. Executrix - Simon Taler, Signed - John (his mark) Glew. Witnesses - Thomas Jesper, Charles Jones, Georg (R his mark) Henderson, at Jul 5, 1721 Court, this will was proved by the oaths of the witnesses, and AR."
