The following is a snip from Cavaliers and Pioneers- Abstracts of Virginia Land Patents and Grants. The William Moseley is a direct ancestor, a former merchant, born in England, lived in Rotterdam, then emigrated to Virginia Colony about 1649. The passage in question regards a land grant received for the transportation of 11indivuduals. But the names are of himself, his wife Susannah, sons and a few others. I don't understand. If he was already resident for a few years, how would he receive a land grant for transportation of individuals, including himself, that were already resident (as far as I know)?
I keep trying to add an image of the passage, but it's not working, so I will transcribe instead:
