According to Whitelaw, George Bell father of this George, comes to own 200a of tract N84 in 1680 and he and wife Hannah deed this to sons George and Jeodiah to become effective at their deaths. (Whitelaw, Vol I, page 451). Whitelaw seems to misattribute saying that Thomas (elder George's father) assigned this land in 1680 but Thomas had died in 1678 leaving no land to George in his will. It could be htis land goes to George Bell earlier than Whitelaw's datum of 1680. In 1734. Jeodiah and his wife Sarah deeded his part to Ezekiel Bell. George Bell's portion is left to son Joab Bell in 1772 and Joab and wife Keziah left the 100a to son Isaac Bell. Whitelaw states that an 1839 survey showed this as 105a for Edmund Bell. N84 is land located in the modern day (2017) on the seaside including the tiny hamlet of Marionville and to its east, SE of Nassawadox, out towards Red Bank.

George Bell Sr. wrote his will on Dec 28 1771 and it was proven in Northampton Co., VA on Dec 8 1772:
