      Page 78, line 41. “Du Gurne” for “Pu Quesne.”

      Page 1 line 8. The murder referred to was committed by George

    Talbot upon Christopher Rousby in 1684. Talbot was carried to Vir

    ginia and condemned to death, but pleaded the King's pardon. This

    led later to complicated questions involving the title of lands formerly

    held by him whether they were forfeited or not; whether a condemna

    restore his estates, if legally forfeited.
