Jeffery Nathaniel Burgess - Norfolk [Jeffery would have been about 17 years old in 1765 and therefore too young to be included in tithable listings prior to 1764. There are however two earlier listings which mention a Jeffrey amongst Nathaniel Burgess' slaves - for the first time in 1759 (Jeffry) and again in 1761 (Jaffree). ]
