      (2) Thousands of Virginia's early settlers arrived in the colony as a result of the headright system. Under this system, anyone who paid for his transportation (or someone else's transportation) to Virginia was entitled to receive 50 acres of land for each immigrant transported to Virginia at his expense. In order to receive a land patent under the headright system, an individual would petition the county court for certification of these rights. The certificate was then recorded in the county court minute books. The petition for a certificate was usually filed soon after the arrival of the immigrants, while proofs of the claim where fresh. The documents certifying these rights, formally termed "transportation rights," but commonly called "headrights," were used as paper currency and freely sold, bartered or assigned to others at or near the time of certification. For that reason they could have remained in circulation for a considerable time before ultimately being "tendered" for land. Before 1705, these rights could have been claimed for multiple arrivals of the same person.

      (3) On 2 May 1713, Benjamin CHAPMAN was granted a land patent for 380 acres of land in Isle of Wight County, VA for transporting 8 persons, including James HASTY, to VA. The land patent is described as follows in the Library of Virginia's online catalog:
