Table V - John Hort - Henry Wright Patents

Note 1: in these deed histories distances are quoted in perches (p) of length 16.5 feet. Areas are quoted in acres (a) and square perches (p). There are 160 square perches to an acre. In a few cases roods (a quarter of an acre) are also used.

Note 2: the 490 or 500 acres of the Wright patent seems too small to cover the area of the tract. No other patent or a deed tree has been found for the area.
