No. Not royal surveyor.  R.S. designates Revolutionary Soldier

W.R.S. after the women's names means widow of Revolutionary Soldier

When you get the book loaded go to page 48 to see Revolutionary Soldiers

Widows of Revolutionary Soldiers as chapter heading

Hmmmmm.  Would "Revolutionary Soldier" have been relevant in 1730??  Just asking...

Wow! I came here seeking the same information for the same family! That's amazing, I guess we're very distant relatives.
