  • Notes 
    • George Naylor, born 1654 in Yorkshire, England, immigrated to the British Colonies of North America in 1668 with the aid of Henry Cole of Calvert County, Maryland. Naylor and his wife, Elizabeth, had two sons, George Jr. (1686) and James (1688), and a daughter Elizabeth (1690).

      Following George Naylorís death in 1734, his estate was divided amongst his wife and heirs.

      His wife was bequeathed "Stainland" and part of "Woodborough." Elizabeth Adams [nee Naylor], received 164 acres of land known as "Naylorís Ridge."

      The owner of the tract where the Woodborough Boundary Stone is located following the death of Naylor and its subsequent ownership by the Watson family is unclear; the conveyance is not certain during this period.

      In May of 1698, Thomas Greenfield (Greenwell) sold 200,000 acres of land to George Naylor, which was to be known as "Naylors Purchase." Naylor also purchased a tract of land known as "Woodborough" from Greenfield.8 Other properties owned by Naylor in the vicinity were Stainland, Thatham (Tatham), and Naylorís Range.

      Naylor purchased land adjacent to Woodborough, increasing its original dimensions.

      Local historian Franklin Robinson notes that the original patent was south of this stone, but with the addition of surrounding properties, the Naylor family owned land well past where the stone was located.

      At some point, instead of calling the tracts by their separate names, they were amalgamated as Woodborough.9

      As such, the Woodborough Boundary Stone does not mark a boundary of the Woodborough tract at its largest during the ownership of George Naylor. [3]
