On 11 July 1719, William Bourn received a land grant of 300 acres, in Lousia County, Virginia Land Book #10, page 433 as follows: "George, To all, Know ye that for divers good causes and considerations, but more especially for and in consideration of the sum of five shillings of good and lawful money for our use paid to our Receiver General of our Revenue, in this our Colony, Dominion of Virginia As also for and in consideration of the Importation of five persons to dwell within this our said Colony and Dominion whose names are Nicholas Stephenson, Mary Casupe (?), Eliza(beth) Johnson, Elander Mathews and Joan Hogan. We have given, granted and confirmed and these presents for us our heirs and successors do give grant and confirm unto William Bourn of New Kent County one certain tract or parcel of land containing three hundred acres - lying and being on both sides of Narrow Neck Creek in the aforesaid county and bounded as followeth, to wit, beginning at a white oak in Major Nicholas Meriwethers line on the upper side of Narrow Neck Creek running South thirty west three hundred and sixteen poles to a red oak thence south fifty one East a thirty four poles, Creek in a (?) one hundred twenty four poles to a white oak thence north forty one east at one hundred poles - branch at one hundred and forty branch at two hundred eighty four jumping branch in all three hundred fourteen poles to a white oak in the said Meriwethers line - thence along his line north fifty two west one hundred and seventy eight poles to the beginning. WITH all et To have hold et to be held et Yielding and paying et provided et In witness et witness our trusty and welbeloved Alexander Spotswood our Lt. Governor at Williamsburgh under the seal of our said Colony the Eleventh day of July one thousand seven hundred and nineteen in the fifth year of our Reign. Lt. Governor Alexander Spotswood"
This land was in the part of New Kent County which became Hanover County in 1721 and which became Louisa County in 1742. It is located south of the South Anna River, near the Hanover County line, on both sides of Narrow Neck Creek, later called Duncan's Creek and now called Jones Creek. This land remained in the possession of Bourn descendants for almost one hundred years and parts of it were owned by Bourns for many more years than that. Eighty acres of this land is still carried on the tax books of Louisa County, as "formerly William Bourne, Senior's land."
On 8 April 1711, the same Parish Register shows Ann Bourn, wife of William Bourn, Jr died. William married again and they had five known children. The loss of the Hanover County records for this period makes it impossible to know when William Bourn, Jr (II) died. His land was apparently inherited by his son, William Bourn III. In 1740, two years before Louisa County was formed, William Bourn (III) sold for L5, 152 acres of the 300 acre tract, that part lying on the "upper side of Narrow Neck Creek" to Stephen Bourn, brother of William (III). (Louisa County, Virginia Deed Book A, page 386). (Information from "Stephen Bourn and Rosamond Mallory, 1950 - 1982" by Lura Elizabeth Cutchshaw, 1983.)
Birth: ABT 1670 in Louisa County, Virginia
