Nathaniel Bibby Appoints Thomas Swearingen his Attorney


From Nita Pearce <>

This file contains transcribed documents of Nathaniel Bibby ( b. Northampton Co. 1696 to Edmond II & Esther _____ Bibby). I believe this is due to the fact that the Bibby Estate, Northampton & Hogg Island was left to heirs of Elizabeth Benthall "by Common Law" in 1720 by older brother John Bibby.
