    1. [S40] Will.
      By his will, bearing date of December 29, 1732, Wm. Brown devised this land to his son, William Brown, Jr., also of Prince William County, Virginia. Careful and painstaking research has failed to reveal the place and date of his birth or death. The records show, however, that he and his wife were both buried in the family burying ground comprising one acre of the above mentioned land set apart for that purpose, near what is now the Post Office of Independent Hill, a few miles south of Manassas, Virginia. The name of his wife has not been ascertained, but that she lived for some years after his death seems probable, for on July 24th, 1744, their three orphan boys, William Brown, John Brown and George Brown were placed under the guardianship of George Byrn and Cuthbert Harrison, gentlemen, as evidenced by the following bond: (Will Book C., page 511, Prince William County Records). "Know all men by these presents that we, George Byrn and Cuthbert Harrison, gent., are held and firmly bound unto Robert Souers, Richard Blackburn, Benjamin Grayson, John Wright, gentlemen, Justices of the County of Prince William, their heirs and successors, in the sum of five hundred pounds sterling to the which payment well and truly be made we bind ourselves, our heirs, and administrators jointly and severally firmly by these presents sealed with our seals, dated this 21th day of July in the year of our lord 1744. The condition of the above obligation is such that if the above bound George Byrn, Guardian of William Broun. Jno Brown arid George Brown, his heirs, executors and administrators do and shall well and truly pay unto these orphans all such, estate and estates as now is or hereafter shall come into the hands or the possession of the said George Byrn so soon as the said orphans shall attain to lawful age or when thereunto required by the aforesaid Court of Prince William and shall also well and truly save harmless and indemnified the said Justices their heirs and successors from all trouble and damage that shall or may be about the said estate. Then the said obligation to be void and of no effect or else to remain in full force and virtue.
