Malachy, Westmoreland & Stafford Co., VA, 1678

I am not researching this family, just entering information from the booklet "Historical Atlas of Westmoreland County, Virginia" by David Eaton, 1942:

"Malachy Peale patented 843 acres upon the eastern branches of Pope's Creek, Nov. 20, 1678. It is doubtful if Peale ever lived upon this land, as he was one of the Justices for the county of Stafford from 1692 for several years. He was a man of prominence in Stafford County for a number of years. His name was Malachai Peale in the patent, but was invariably spelled Malachy in the Stafford County records. (Stafford County Court Order Book, 1692.) It was Peale who commenced the plantation at Baynesville."
