The graphic below is probably the only extant record of the signature marks of these 2 Elizabeths…however, neither is signed by them. The first, in 1710, was undoubtedly recopied into the Isle of Wight deed book by the clerk. The second, in 1733, was signed by her daughter (Elizabeth Pitman?). I can see the 1733 sig as being a N and I… or I can see 3 vertical lines with a line across them. Of course I have a dog in this fight because I have the theory these two women are the same person.
On July 12, 1716 Matthew (X) and Elizabeth (E) Capps sold James Anderson certain land in Chowan Precinct that formerly belonged to William Brasswell; witnessed by William Brasswell and Edward Howard. On November 12, 1720, James (I) and Elizabeth (S) Anderson of Chowan Prect. sold Joseph Sims of the same place 100 acres from William Brasswell’s former patent on Cypress Swamp on March 4, 1711-12, adjoining Robert Sims: witnessed by Matthew (M) Russian and William Murphey.

Children of James and Elizabeth Anderson:

As an aside, I scanned a signature mark for James Anderson from a 1721 deed… rotate it sideways and compare it to the IOW signatures… I don’t find anything relevant to a “proof” but do find it interesting…
