I am not researching this family, but I have a sheet from a book on Court Records in Richmond County, VA. I had ancestors who lived there, so have some information on that area. Packett is a name I haven't heard before; I do not know if this man is an ancestor of you George, but the counties are in the same area.
"July, 1728 Courts - Gabriell Packett, Jr. of North Farnham parish haveing been Summoned to Answer the presentment of the Grandjury against him for being a Common Drunkard, and this day appearing, but offering Nothing Materiall to Excuse himselfe It is the oppinion of this Court and Accordingly ordered that for said Offence he give good and Sufficient Security for his good Behaviour during the Terme of one year."
