Although the patents above are for William Anderson and Dorothy Dabney, who were of King William County after its formation; the primary family of King and Queen County were of the Richard Anderson family. The file I have on him documents his sons that moved to southwest Virginia, however I know of others who remained in King and Queen until after the revolution including Beverly Anderson and Churchill Anderson.
