    300 acres 
    • Bought 300 acres of land from Solomon & Comfort Ewell that they had gotten from Mason Abbott from Whitelaw's tract.

      The land is called the Fowkes-Finney land and began above the mouth Parker's Creek and extended between the creek and the neck road out to a crossroad in the neck.

      The land was later given to his son, Andrew, in 1732.

      200 acres of the land in about 1742 was given to Abel Finney, Andrew's son. The other 100 acres were given to the other son, Andrew, which apparently later came to Abel.

      In 1768 Abel & Elizabeth Finney gave the land to their son, William.


      In 1781, the land was found to be 293 acres in total.

      In 1813, William Finney wrote a will to leave the land to his children.
