      Teste

      Elizabeth Chappell did not long remain a widow, for among the records has been found a unique and peculiar document, the meaning of which was for a time difficult to understand. It proved, however, to be a bond given to James Jones, in the nature of an ante-nuptial contract, by one Thomas Taylor, the prospective husband of his widowed daughter, Elizabeth Chappell. I transcribe this Marriage Contract:

      "Know all men by these presents that I, Thomas Taylor, am held and firmly bound unto James Jones, Indr., his heirs and Executors, in the sum of four hundred and forty two pounds and eight shillings, of lawfull money of England, to which payment well and truly to be made, I bind myself, my heirs, executors and administrators. Sealed with my seal and dated this 22nd. day of June 1704. The condition of this obligation, is such that if the above bonded Thomas Taylor, shall from time to time, and at all times, forever hereafter, suffer and give liberty to Elizabeth Chappell, the widow and Relic of Thomas Chappell, deceased, to give and dispose to her children, how, when and as she thinks fitt, any and all sums of money, or its value in country commoditys, or personal property of which she may be possessed, then the above written obligation to be void, null and of no effect; otherwise
      to stand in full force and virtue.
      "Thomas Taylor. [Seal]

      She and Thomas Taylor were still living in Surry County on Oct 19, 1736 (Surry Deed & Wills, 1730-38, Pg. 628)
