JACK, 1746 John FRYER has 200 acres here (New Hanover) on n side Gosen Swamp
1750 John Fryer has 200 acres (New Hanover) on fork of Cohere-jng little Cohera
1750 Martin Fryer has 100 acres New Hanover in fork bet great and little Cohera
above John Fryers land.
1772/1774/1776 Jacob FRYER has land on 6 runs and ss Rowan Marsh/swamp, deeded to
him by Hardy STEPHENS IN 1769
In 1769 Wm Fryer's wife was Jane and she appears to still be here after he is
In 1785 Jacob Fryers wife is Winefred (his will)
AND I don't know where these Fryers/Sellers came from before-
We have SELLERS/FRYERS in early Craven, but, kinda look like to Johnston,etc.
Jane FRYER stays close to our SELLERS, thought there MUST be connection , PERHAPS
thru a differant family.
