Middle River (I'm afraid that at this point I did not do the research to locate these lands precisely as I was anxious to get on with the survey)

Headwaters: The sources of Middle River, Back Creek and Young's Creek are in Beverley Manor. Back Creek and Young's Creek (flows parallel on east side of Back Creek and enters Middle River just to the North of Back Creek) are wholly in Beverley Manor. I will treat this area together.

Sam, William and John McCutcheon each have tracks at the head of Middle River. Samuel's track is at the Northern tip of Bordens Tract, partly in Beverley Manor and part a personal grant. Sam actually lived on this land in 1759.

Jacob Lockhart has several tracts in this area. In 1755 he sells one to James Clark, c to Clark's other land. James sells land to son John in 1761 and to son Sam in 1766. John sells to Robert Clark in 1770.

James Lockhart sell land to son Patrick in 1761 c Perry's land c Wm Lockhart.

Young family: Robert, Hugh, James, John and Samuel all hold land in this area. They sell to each other, land next to each other. Their other corners include John Trimble, Robert Camble, Patrick Martin, and McFeeters. James Young sells land to Rbt Allen in 1758 who sells to John Moffett in 1762.

Campbell family: David, John, Robert and Alexander.

On the North Manor boundary. Robert Davise sells land in 1754 to John Brown, c Cpt. Brown. John Jameson buys from Beverley in 1749 c Robert Davise, Sam Wallac and Hugh Young.
John Richey sells land to Adam Thompson in 1754 who immediately sells to Samuel Kincaid.
Others in the area include: David Cunningham, Thomas Kirkpatrick, Rbt Gibson, Andrew Greer (who sells to David Stuart in 1766, Rbt Crockett, John Trimble and William King.

Road orders 1746. John Graham to be overseer from James Carter's mill to the Court House, as far as the first ford above Bell's land.

In 1788 Andrew Kincaid was granted 400a in Augusta Co. as assignee of John Gardiner. No waterway is given. The land is located next to his own with the following neighbors: Richard Mathews, George, Moffett, David McNair and Samuel Runkle. A Chalkley partial in 1790 "part of 400a patented to Andrew Kincaid c Richard Mathews. I have not successfully located an area where all of these people held land in the same place, however, somewhere in the above section looks promising.
