      In early January 1677, John Bull claimed 1,000 acres on January 15, 1677 under the headright system for transporting 20 people, including a Phil Burgin.

    • Phillip was accused of treason based on a conversation that took place at his home "Ivingo." He and three friends had been drinking and someone said he would "drink to the Duke of Monmouth's health, for he hath poisoned his brother (the late King Charles)."

      One of the "friends" swore a deposition describing the incident and claiming they had said "libelous and scandalous words against our sovereign King James 2nd.". The four later appeared in court, where all testified, and the original deponent changed his story.

      The case was postponed several times, until William and Mary took the throne of England, and the case "passed into obscurity."
