I saw the following :
The earliest Peter Nance record appears in Dinwiddie Co in VA in 1765, when he and his wife Elizabeth deeded (to Alex Gibbs) 100 a. "whereon Peter Nance now dwells".

I would like to learn anything about Peter Nance connections to better understand the relationship to Alex Gibbs. Why did they give 100 ac to Alex Gibbs.

Are there other pre-1775 Nance/Gibbs relationships in Dinwiddie or Bedford Co? Where else should I be looking?

Here's something to check into.

I have a Nathaniel Nance b. 09 Dec 1731 Bristol Parish, Prince George County, d. Aft. 1789 VA marr. Susanna GIBBS Bedford County, VA

This may be the Nathaniel in Dinwiddie

Found in Dinwiddie County VA
1758 Nathaniel NANCE
1759 Nathaniel NANCE

1760 Dinwiddie County VA,
Book 45, Pg. 51 Mary NANCE, and
Book 45, Pgs. 49 & 51 Richard NANCE
Nathaniel NANCE self

1761 Dinwiddie County VA
Nathaniel NANCE

This may be Peter's brother
I have Nathaniel's father as Richard wife Mary (LNU)

I have a couple of other NANCE/GIBBS
Sarah H. GIBBS marr. Thomas Vaughn NANCE abt 1762 VA
William GIBBS marr. Wilmuth NANCE 1794 VA
