The dates listed below have different categories as denoted by the letters in the brackets following each date. Here is a key to explain those letter codes:

  • SD - Association Start Date
  • SY - Association Start Year
  • EA - Earliest Known Association
  • ED - Association End Date
  • EY - Association End Year
  • LA - Latest Known Association
1796 [EA] - 1798 [LA] → Owner
1809 [EA] - 1839 [LA] → Owner
1817 [EA] - 1817 [LA] → Attorney
1819 [EA] - → Mortgage Holder

This has been inferred from the appearance in the compensation records as claimants of Stephana Biscoe, George Law and the Rev. William Biscoe, who are known to have been Joseph Seymour Biscoe's three executors., although not identified as such in the compensation records. Note that JBS died 05/05/1835 and the award was made 05/10/1835, not leaving much time for the counterclaim.

1820 [EA] - 1823 [LA] → Attorney
1834 [EA] - 1834 [LA] → Mortgage Holder

Claimed compensation under a mortgage deed of 1819, probably as executor of Joseph Seymour Biscoe.

1834 [EA] - 1834 [LA] → Mortgage Holder

Claimed compensation under a mortgage deed of 1819, probably as executor of Joseph Seymour Biscoe.

1834 [EA] - 1834 [LA] → Mortgage Holder

Claimed compensation under a mortgage deed of 1819, probably as executor of Joseph Seymour Biscoe.
