    • Extracted from the works of Joseph Francis Inman titled
      "Some Pond's of Southampton County, Virginia" Published 1970.
      DANIEL POND, the son of JOHN POND and his wife ELIZABETH, was
      born in York County, Virginia 15 January 1715. He died in Southampton
      County about January 1786, his will was dated December 1785 and was
      proved in court 9 February 1786. He married about 1740, MARY ________,
      whose parents have not been identified. She may have been a relative of
      WILLIAM TAVENOR whose will was proved in York County 20 May 1751
      in which will she was a legatee, however, no relationship is stated.
      Their first child, JOHN, was born 8 November 1741. Twin sons, DANIEL
      AND SAMUEL, were born of this union 24 December 1742 and were
      baptized 29 January 1743, as shown in the records of Charles Parish.
      The will of DANIEL POND named as legatees his wife MARY; sons
      JOHN, RICHARD, DANIEL and SAMUEL; the last two apparently deceased;
      and daughters ELIZABETH MORRIS and MARY WOOD. His personal
      property, including nine negroes, was appraised at 605 pounds, 14
      shillings, 4 pence. He devised land of 223 acres, on which he lived,
      to his son JOHN POND; however, he previously had deeded 100 acres
      to his son RICHARD POND; and he and JOHN TAYLOR had deeded
      173 acres to his son RICHARD. The land transferred to RICHARD POND
      was located on Brown's Road, which is the highway between the Village
      of Dory and Berlin; the highway is now known as State Route #626.
      DANIEL POND may have moved from York County about 1744, since
      there are no entries in Charles Parish Register concerning him after
      1743. He was in Isle of Wight County before 5 April 1746 for on that date
      THOMAS CLIFTON and BENJAMIN CLIFTON deeded 440 acres of land to
      him. The deed was proved 28 April 1746. This was prior to the
      establishment of Southampton County, which was cut off from Isle of Wight
      1749. In the deed, all the parties are referred to as being of Isle of Wight
      County.
      On 10 August 1749, DANIEL was one of the taxpayers assigned to work
      on the roads under overseer JOSEPH JONES.
      DANIEL POND contributed 290 pounds of beef, to be used by the
      Revolutionary War Forces, on 10 September 1781.
      The 440 acres of land acquired by DANIEL POND from THOMAS and
      BENJAMIN CLIFTON was described as 40 acres on which THOMAS CLIFTON
      lately dwelt and 400 acres adjoining which had been patented by RICHARD
      ATKINSON 9 July 1742. The patent described the land as being on the
      south side of the Blackwater Swamp and adjacent to lands of the Nottaway
      Indians. The lands acquired by DANIEL POND included the lands still in the
      POND family near Dory.

      patented by Richard Atkinson 9 July 1724. LAND PATENT KOOK 12, page 80.
      The patent sescribed the land as being on the south side of the Blackwater
