Field Jefferson More Information

Lunenberg Deed Book 3 page 349
August 7, 1753
We, Field Jefferson, David Garland and Thomas Hawkins of Lunenberg County are bound to the King in the sum of 1000 pounds sterling, which payment to be made, we bind ourselves this August 7, 1753.  The condition of this obligation is that, Whereas Field Jefferson has been appointed Sheriff of Lunenberg, if Jefferson shall render to the auditor and receivor general of his Majesty's Revenue, a true account of all his Majesty's rent and dues in Lunenburg and also do payment of all matters relating to said office, then this obligation become void.  Signed Field Jefferson Thomas Hawkins David Garland.

I have been trying to prove that Field's first wife was the daughter of the Reverend George Robertson of Bristol Parish because I have read a few articles which mention that fact, but give no proof.  I just finish reading a book about the Reverend George Robertson and no mention was made of a daughter of his and Field Jefferson.
