Note
From Newman A. Hall: William Tapp born in Essex County received a Northern Neck Grant from Lord Fairfax dated 5 Mar 1747 for 587 acres. This land remained his home for the rest of his life. Many of his sons and daughters and grandchildren lived in this area. The homestead dating to at least 1750 still stands in part. It passed down to his son Lewis and his widow and to her step-children who eventually sold the land out of the family.

Christian was first daughter and second child of John Bourne as implied by his will dated 23 Oct 1721, recorded Essex Co VA, Wills and Deeds Bk 16 p 258-9. ‎(I disagree with this notation - see NOTES John Bourne I511. - Jane)‎

William Tapp and Elizabeth Barrick had three children: William married Christian Bourne, Vincent married Elizabeth daughter of Robert Bourne of Spotsylvania and Charity married Bartholomew Wood of Spotsylvania and later of Prince William. Elizabeth deeds property to three children in 1734, Spotsylvania Deed Bk A dated 31 Oct 1734 recorded 3 Nov 1734. Witnesses included brother of Elizabeth, Richard Johnson. See also additional Spotsylvania deeds to the three children.

Will of William Tapp dated 27 Jun 1780 recorded 17 Jan 1791, Culpeper Co. VA Will Bk C p 406. Legatees: Wife Christian Tapp, Sons Vincent, William, Lewis Tapp. Grandson William Tapp, son of Vincent. Daughter Ann Cunningham, Wife of John Cunningham, Daughter Alice Graham, wife of John Graham, Daughter Elizabeth Green, wife of James Green, Daughter Sarah Jett, wife of John Jett. William Yates, son of Mary Yates, dec. Executors: Son Vincent Tapp, James Jett. The other stated executor refused toa ct. Son William was in North Carolina. Son Lewis had died earlier. It appears that the settlement of the estate was finally managed by Lewis Tapp, Jr from Kentucky.

RESEARCH - Location Notes

The County of Rappahannock originally formed from Lancaster County in 1656 was later dissected into other counties which were dissected even further into Essex and Richmond in 1692 Spotsylvania, Orange and Culpeper were all later divisions each bei ng even further divided. A person could never have moved from the same home and have lived in several different counties during their lifetime. The then Rappahannock County is today referred to as “Old” Rappahannock County to differentiate it f rom the extant same named county. – 14 December 2007 Jane
