  • Mid-Atlantic Genealogies, 1340-1940

    John Kingsman resided in Chichester township, probably near the line of Aston, where he owned 200 acres of land. This he devised to his only surviving child, Elizabeth Dutton, during her life; while
    he gave to each of his grand-daughters, Hannah and Mary Dutton,  ?10 and a silver cup. He died about the beginning of the year 1721, and it is likely that John Dutton removed with his family to the above land in Chichester not long after. He was living there in 1781, and in that year conveyed his lands in Aston to John Biard or Bayard.
