Following are full-text transcripts of COLE Deeds and related documents in Prince William County.  They have been transcribed by me from microfilm available at RELIC (Bull Run Library).  There are numerous COLE-related documents in the PWCo.

COLE to CHAPHAM Deed
25 July 1741
Prince William Co. Deed Book E, pg. 520

[A NOTE about this Deed.  It was first brought to my attention by Robert A. Fetters who has been researching the COLE-KING connection for some time.  Daniel Cole, Sr. mentions his wife Sarah in his Will dated 1797; this 1741 Deed, however, mentions Constance (King) as his wife.  Is Constance Daniel's first wife?  Another name for Sarah?  Or is this an entirely different Daniel Cole, perhaps Daniel "Sr."s father?  Also, I'm sorry to say that the handwriting on this particular deed was especially hard to decipher from the microfilm.  Any transcription errors/misinterpretations are entirely my own.  -- Carolyn]
