A true copy compared with the original at York
the 3 April 1764
George Stevenson, Recorder
Summary: It appears that the subject property was foreclosed upon by Robert McPherson, Sheriff. George Stevenson who served as Recorder of Deeds, Register of Wills and Prothonotary of the County from 1749-1764, brought suit against the George Hooke estate for whatever was owed. This document makes clear that Philip Wentz was high bidder at the public sale-vendue. From a copy of a map of Dover Township connecting land warrants--it appears that Geore Hoke applied for the warrant of this property while Philip Wentz later followed with a survey application. This parcel is the present site of Weiglestown Elementary School on the east side of Rte. 74, between York and Dover.
