The SHORT family left Brunswick and in 1763 William SHORT leaves a will in
Northampton County, NC.  This will is also recorded in Brunswick.  An
interesting mention in the SHORT will is this:  "lands I bought of William
CHAMBERS, joining William PRIDON and the river (except about 10 acres) and
also Burk Island, Miller Island which I purchased of Hosea TAPLEY* and the
Reedy Island and also 2 negroes."

*Hosea TAPLEY is from the same TAPLEY family that intermaried with William
POOLE of Brunswick, and left a will in Mecklenburg County, VA, 1777; the
line I believe to be my husband's.
