Romney Lots, Late 18th - mid 19th Century
When Lord Fairfax died in 1781 and we had won Independence and established the United States, the Trustees of Romney hurriedly issued deeds to lot owners in Romney. They were trying to correct a number of omissions in earlier records. Below is the list of lot owners as it appeared in a document of unknown date. The well known document from which this information was taken has no date or author; the plat to which the names were attached at some point was made in the 1790s. However, at least one of the owners shown did not get a deed to his lot until 1876! We have not traced the dates for the other owners.
