NXL Surveyor helps uncover area landmark
The Nottoway Plantation or “Quarter” was a tobacco plantation acquired by the College of William and Mary in 1718. It has not been mentioned in any of the standard histories of the College and documentation is sparse. In 2011 though, the precise location of the Quarter came to light thanks to NXL’s Dave Jones, professional Land Surveyor. Mr. Jones, who lives within the Quarter, presented copies of contemporary land patents, along with the metes and bounds of the plantation as deduced from those patents to the Special Collections Research Center.
The Votes are In
