It seems, according to Whitelaw that George Bell 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 (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 wrote his will on Aug 7 1721 and it was proven on Oct 8 1723 in Northampton Co., VA:
- To three sons George, Jeodiah, Ezekiel after death of loving wife Hannah, negro girls Nan and Betty and to be executors
- To son Jonathan
- To daughters Rachel Powell and Sarah Powell
- To son David
Witnesses: Edward Belote, William Brickhouse, Jacob Stringer (NoVAW-XXIII-R:189)
