William Batte of Virginia

William Batte Sr. of Prince George County, Virginia drew extensive land grants on the south side of the Meherrin River in Brunswick and Isle of Wight Counties during 1719 and 1723, some of which later fell into Greensville County where he established a vast plantation. His last will and testament dated 1809 in Greensville County (available to members of Virginia Pioneers ) listed much of this land as well as a number of slaves.  An interesting bequest of 200 barrels of corn and 2000 wt. of meat was bequeathed to his wife.  The last wills and testaments of Virginians are always interesting, as they provide unique details.
