Historical Information

Daniel C. Brent and Robert Swan formed a business partnership in 1804. They owned a mill, store, and blacksmith shop that were part of the Brent family plantation known as Richland located in Stafford County. The mill was known as Brent's Mill which operated from the mid-1600's until 1900.

The volumes are compilations from the originals made by a Commissioner Parke. They were used as exhibits in an unknown suit heard in the 1820's.

The Brent family was one of the first families to settle in Stafford County during the mid-1600's.
