John DANIELL had to die before 31 May 1768. Since we know his will was
dated 23 Dec 1763, he died sometime between 23 Dec 1763 and 31 May 1768 when
this deed was executed, not the 23 Dec 1773 that some show for him. He
probably died sometime before the 14 Feb 1767 date that his executors cut a
POA to Robert to see this property.
Maybe someone has a definitive date for his death.....
