BIOGRAPHY-WILL: Thomas Allen Glenn, PEDIGREE OF RICHARD BORDEN Who removed from the country Kent Old Eng. 1637- 1638 and settled at Portsmouth, R.I ; 1901; 617 Witherspoon Building, Philadelphia, Penn. Printed for Private Distribution; p 6-10; LDS Family History library Film 0990349, 15 p.;
WILL dated 11 February 1531 and proved 25 September 1531 - I, William Borden of Hedcorn. To be buried within the Church of Our Lady between my 2 wives Joan and Thomasin. To Elizabeth my daughter, a standing Nutte with silver & gilt & a cover. To Anne my daughter, F20. To Katherine my daughter, my messuage, 2 gardens, a forstall, 3 pieces of land formerly called Southlands, & 2 pieces of land called Ryngsell, purchased of Sir William Ketlesden, formerly Vicar of Hedcorn; for default of heirs to the said Katherine, the same to remain to my son Thomas his heirs for ever. ... I will that Edward Borden my son hold himself content with my tenement of Borden, with 100 acres of land & meadow & my tenement at Wike, with such lands as he holds of me by indenture under a false pretence of marriage of Johane daughter of John Aleyn, Baron of the Exchequer. I will that Rose my wife occupy my principal messuage Horcheyard Podsole, a tenement & piece of land called Borowfyld, she keeping Thomas and Anne my children. My feoffees to let 2 pieces of land called Ketes & Somerlese with all my other lands lying on the north side of the street leading from Hedcorn to Levenham, &c., &c., until my son Thomas attain 24 years. To the said Thomas I give a piece of land containing 10 acres called Pikesfelde, "lying to the hall dore of his brother Edward's hall dore." (Proved 25 Sep 1531. Archaelogia Cantina, Vol XIX, Section 10, folio 224.) CHILD: Edmund is not mentioned in his fathers will. In early English wills the eldest son is seldom named because as heir, under the common law of England, he inherited by primogeniture, land not being generally devisable. In Kent, almost all of the land was, and is, held by the custom of Gavelkind. In no county in England were the ancient Saxon customs regarding marriage so carefully observed as in Kent. In other words, the descendants of Edmund Borden, by operation of the custom of Gavelkind, became seized during their lifetime of certain lands which had formerly been the property of Will and his ancestors. Stephen, son of William, by operation of custom of Gavelkind became seized of certain lands at Bydynden which had once belonged to John Borden (died 1469) and to his ancestors.

Member of an early Arkansas family, Mr. Scott was born at Elmhurst, the family home at Scott. He had lived on the Scott plantations and in Little Rock all his life. He was the son of Conoway Scott, who came from Kentucky and settled at the Scott places, then on the Arkansas river in Pulaski and Lonoke counties, in the 1820's.

He had been identified with the co-operative marketing of cotton from the outset of the movement. He was one of the first directors of the Arkansas Cotton Grower's Co-oprative Association. When the organization was merged into the mid-south association, he was continued as a director and had been re-elected every year since. He also served as vice-president of the mid-south body. He took an active part in the agricultural development of Arkansas and was recognized as a progressive leader.

Henry, general manager of the Mid-South Cotton Growers Association, expressed "deepest regret" tonight when informed of the death of Conoway Scott.
