George Heale Sr.'s will was proven in 1698 and left "Land and Plantation wherein I now live bounding upon South east side of the main road which leads from Mr. Ball's Mill to a Mill which was formerly Josias Draper's, between the said Roads and Thomas Davis's, containing about 1300 acres to my son George Heale... My quarter Plantation in the Forrest at the head of Corrotoman to son George Heale for use of son Nicholas Heale, but if he die, to child, be male or female, my wife is now with, and if he to die Son George Heale is to have the quarter." George was also named executor of his father's estate.
George and Catherine went on to have four daughters. In 1716 he served as a Justice in Lancaster County court as was referred to as a Captain. In 1719 George was granted "800 acres beginning on a point near the mouth of Millick Creek upon Rappahannock River thence down said river."
George wrote his will on September 3rd, 1736 and it was proven on May 13th, 1737. His will mentions their four daughters, three by name; Elizabeth Davenport, Sarah Heale and Catherine Heale. The fourth daughter was referred to by her husband's name, Lindsey Opie. A wife is not mentioned in the will, so she probably predeceased him. George was a slaveholder and in his will divided many slaves among his daughters. George also mentioned that a surgeon from Westmoreland named Christopher Dominick Jackson should be paid for his services.
On May 14th, 1737 an extensive inventory was taken of George Heale's estate by his brothers John & Joseph Heale. The inventory was divided by rooms in his home including: the halls and little room joining to the hall, the entry of the great house, the room over the entry, the room upstairs over the little room, the upstairs of the old house and the cellar. Inventory was also made at three other properties owned by George called the schoolhouse quarter, the Richmond quarter and the Cherry Point quarter. The inventory ended with a listing of his slaves which included 49 names.
