From Caroline County, VA, Order Book 1732-1740, by John Dorman:

At a called Court held 11 October 1733. Present: John Martin, Thomas Catlett, John Catlett, John Taliaferro, Thomas Buckner, John Miscou and William Taliaferro, Gent., Justices. John Partlow being brought before this court upon his examination fro killing Thomas Downer the son of John Downer, Jr. by going off of a gun that was in John Partlow's hands, the Court on examining William Oliver, Mosses Downer, Henry Bartlett and William Smith are of the opinion it was an accidental thing. It's therefore ordered John Partlow be discharged.

From Colonial Caroline - The History of Caroline County, Virginia by T.E. Campbell:

In 1730 John Partlow settled on 200 acres on South River.

The Great Crime Wave
Caroline's first crime wave followed in the wake of the founding of Port Royal. In this period the magistrates investigated only one homicide. This was in 1733 when John Partlow shot Thomas Downer. In this trial the court held Downer's death accidental and exonerated Partlow after hearing the testimony of eye-witnesses.
