[VIRGINIA LAND GRANT SIGNED BY GOVERNOR JAMES WOOD, 1797]
Richmond, 1797. Broadside, 12 1/4 x 14 3/4 inches. Single vellum sheet. One vertical and three horizontal fold lines, ink a bit faded, two small circular sections removed from top left corner, with a short closed tear not affecting any text, wax seal at bottom left corner covered over with contemporary paper. Good. A rare printed Virginia land grant completed in manuscript in a secretarial hand and signed by Virginia governor James Wood. The document grants 295 acres of land near the Jackson River in Botetourt County to William Linton, presumably a scion of the prominent Virginia family. James Wood was a Federalist and the 11th governor of Virginia after serving as commander of the 12th Virginia Regiment during the Revolutionary War. Later in life, Wood became an original member of the Society of the Cincinnati, serving as president of the Virginia branch from 1802-13.
