In the August court of 1723 for Somerset Co., we find the following caes concerning Henry Friggs: "Wee of the Grand Jury for the Body of Somersett County do Present Elizabeth Burcham, Spinster, for Bearing a bastard Child (Stepney Parish) the first day of march Last Charles Young, Informer; James Rownd foreman.
