       Interrogations sworn to by M.r Tho.s Addison put by M.r Riley

first Question
       Whether or no M.r Rileys Warrant came not to his hands before Coll.o Bealls & how
       long and whether it were not first Entered into This Book?

       He could not well remember justly but he thought at the least it ab.t a fortnight
       that he had M.r Rileys Warr.t before he had Coll.o Bealls & at the same time he gave us
       the Warr.t he likewise gave me an Entry very near agreeing with the Lines of
       the Land as tis not surveyed

       Whether M.r Riley & Coll.o Beall did agree to send to M.r Carroll to have his
       advice to know Warr.t should be served first?

       That at the Request of both parties I writt up to M.r Carroll for his opinion
       Warr.t ought to be Executed first M.r Carroll accordingly sent the following answ.r
       M.r Hugh Riley What to say to the surveyor for not Executing your Warrant I can
       not tell having no power over him the surveyor Gen.ll Cap.t Smith is the man y.t can
       either make him do it or cause some body else to do the same if you have Entred yo.r
       Warr.t with the surveyor & told him of the Land you would have him lay it upon he can not by
       the Duty of his Office lay it out for any other pson & if it be not within the antient & reall bounds
       of any other survey could not be deprived of it I can not say further in it if I could do you any
       kindness I should be very ready is all at p.rsent from yo.r Friend & serv.t
                                                                                                            Cha Carroll

       What proof Coll.o Beall made to the bound Trees of the
       Majors Lott w.n y.e Special Warr.t was served?

       There was no proof made of the bound Trees that I know of

       What proof appeard to you w.n you rec.d an order from y.e prov.ll Court to resurvey y.e same?

       I Remember little or no proof but what there was the Jury rejected it upon the
       sight of the Tree that Coll.o Beall shewd Tho Addison

       Interrogations sworn to by Thomas Addison put by M.r Edw.d Doson &c

first Question
       What Coll.o Darnalls opinion was of you surveying a Comon Warr.t upon Cultivated Land
       how he determined the Matter between Riley and Dawson &c

       That Coll.o Darnall said it had been better he had not served the Comon Warrant
       upon Cultivated Land to Riley answered he could but loose the Cultivation and be a
       Charge of a new survey and hold the Clear Land to M.r Carroll answered they
       could not deny him a pattent upon those terms upon Coll.o Darnall determined
       that Riley should hold that part of the Land between Chellsey and Major Sewells Land
       and renew Rileys Warrant &c Dawson &c in Six Months to pay Riley his reasonable
       Cost and Charge he had been out

       Whether Coll.o Darnall ordered the land (upon Dawson &c paying Riley
       his Charges) to Coll.o Beall or to Dawson &c?

       I Remember Nothing of it

    Feb.ry y.e 1702/3   The within Depositions were sworn to before me   R Bradly

        By Vertue of a Comission from the Court
        of Chancery
                            Jan.ry 1702/3
