Theodorick Bland (February 1663 – November 1700) made a [1 ] survey in 1693 of the Howson Patent, which is an area corresponding to present day Alexandria, Virginia. He also made a survey for [2 ] Williamsburg, Virginia in 1699. [3 ] [4 ] [5 ]
Bland was the oldest son of
Theodorick Bland of Westover and Anna Bennett, the daughter of Governor Richard Bennett. [1 ] His brothers were [6 ] Richard Bland (who had many notable descendants) and John Bland (who was the great-grandfather of Chancellor Theodorick Bland). [1 ] Bland married Margaret Man and had two sons: [6 ] [1 ]
John Bland (born December 8, 1698); he married Ann West and had at least three children, John, Theodorick, and Mary.
[1 ] Theodorick Bland, who died shortly after his father.
When his father died in 1671, Bland inherited
Westover Plantation and joined with his brother, Richard, in its ownership. The brothers eventually [7 ] conveyed 1,200 acres of the property to William Byrd I in 1688 for 300L and 10,000 pounds of tobacco and cask. Byrd's grandson built a Georgian mansion there in the 1750s. [7 ]
