In 1770 he again petitioned the Assembly to dock the entail on all his remaining lands, consisting of two estates, Blunt Point, and Stanley Hundred, in Warwick County, stating he then had no issue. But there were others who had an interest under the entail and the petition was rejected. It was offered again in 1774, but no action was taken.
