1696, June 22, Alexander Mackenny, of New Kent County to William Mackgehee, of New Kent County, for 3,000 pounds sweet scented tobacco conveys to said Mackgehee, 200 acres in Henrico County adjoining the lands of Samuel Bridgewater (Henrico Records 1688-'97, p. 643)

The destruction of New Kent records prevents the discovery of any data from the county records. The Vestry Book of St. Peter's Parish, New Kent, p. 45 gives "Will Mackgeehe" as a tithable in June 1698. The Register of St.Peter's Parish, New Kent, 1680-1787 gives these items: "Will: sone to Tho. Mackeke, bapt. ye 10 day of Octo. 1689" (page 22); "Thomas Butts, Gent. & Catherine Maclegehe was married ye 2d of Apr. 1713" (page 47); "James and William sons of James & Ann McGehee born March 31, 1756" (page 167).
