Description

A copy of a hand-drawn map of the 1736 Beverley Patent, compiled by J.R. Hildebrand in 1954. In 1736, William Beverley received a grant of more than 118,000 acres from King George II of England. William Gooch was governor of Virginia at that time. The Beverley Patent was divided into home sites for the Scots Irish settlers that came into the area. Today, the city of Staunton, VA occupies this site.
