In the same month, Richard Grills of North Carolina, sold and conveyed to Abel Turner, land "being vested in law to me Richard Grills, being the eldest son of Richard Grills," and to Samuel Soane a tract of land on "Branches Brook or Kingsland Creek" the same formerly "in possession of Richard Grills, millwright, deceased, and now in posses- sion of his eldest son, Richard Grills, party to these presents. Henrico County Records, Deeds, Wills, No. 2, 1725-1737, pp. 334, 337 and 343.: In August and October, 1731, and April, 1732, we find Richard Grills of Henrico County, conveying land and a mill on Swift Creek which had belonged to his father, Richard Grills, deceased.
      The will of Richard* Grills, of Henrico County, dated April 15, 1732, probated first Monday in July, 1732, after directing payment of his just debts, devised "to my friend William Kennon and his heirs forever, all my estate real and personal, except that if my brother John Grills be now living and come on to Virginia, the said Kennon to pay him the value of what land I die possessed with." Kennon was named sole executor. On May 5, 1735, we find a John Grills, of Henrico County and parish selling and conveying to John Read, 100 acres on branch of Winterpock Swamp.
