John WORTHINGTON, dec'd (will), leaving land to his sons, - Thomas WORTHINGTON - Nicholas WORTHINGTON - John WORTHINGTON - James WORTHINGTON Land - "Daniel's Small Tract"; adjoining William BRASHEAR's tract, "William and John"; both procured warrants of resurvey, Brashear’s with a lot of vacant land and Worthington to get a great part of vacant land adjoining "Daniel’s Small Tract". In 1766, Brashears filed a caveat to prevent Worthington from getting his warrant. In 1770, they made an agreement to void the caveat with Worthington conveying to John Beale BORDLEY, esquire, the tract "Resurvey on Daniel’s Small Tract", 2,690 acres. Worthington had title though and claims on the vacant lands overlap. Bordley moved to the Eastern Shore in Queen Anne’s County and later died with a will naming executors, John F. MIFFLIN, Elizabeth BORDLEY and Sarah BORDLEY. In 1791, David ROSS and wife Henrietta Maria filed against the Worthington heirs. Trustee was Henry ALEXANDER.
