Note
From Newman A. Hall: William Tapp born in Essex County received a
Northern Neck Grant from Lord Fairfax dated 5 Mar 17 47 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 a
nd his widow and to her step-children who eventually sold the land out
of the family.
