George Jordan

Virginians made generous gifts to friends and relatives in England. When George Jordan of Surry County died,  he directed that 2,000 pounds of tobacco was to be placed in the hands of William Jordan and shipped to England to be devoted to the use of the latter's children residing at Gybyurne, near Skipton, in Yorkshire. He expressed forbade guns to be fired over his grave and asked his executors to permit no drunkenness to disgrace the occasion.  The practical necessity of remarriage occurred when Mrs. Jordan entered into a marriage contract with Mr. Pooley who paid her a visit in his carriage.
