In 1689, in Hanover Co., St. Paul's
Parish (formerly New Kent Co.) Vestry Book, "ordered y't
Rich. Brock for ye future doe pay noe parish Levy."
The most common reason for "no levy" would be old age.
Undated, but before 11 Oct 1700
in St. Peters Par., New Kent Co., when Richard Brock, son
of Richard Brock, was born or christened - so perhaps this
is Richard III, a son of Richard Jr.
1711 in St. Paul's Parish of Hanover
Co. Vestry book:

"At a Vestry held for St.

find Richd Brock with meat to the value of Guinnea"
(St. Paul's Vestry Book, Hanover Co., p. 157).
"At a Vestry held for St Paul's
Parish for Laying the Levy Decr 4th 1739. Ordered, that the Church
Wardens do let Richard Brock have Five hundred pounds

"Vestry held for St. Pauls
Parish for Laying the Levy 14th day of Oct 1740, Richard Brock
- 300" (p. 162).
Here we have a Richard Brock
who had a mother and a daughter needing the church's assistance:
"Vestry held for St Paul's parish for laying the Levy 10th
To Richd Brock, for Self and Mother - 1200."
"To Mr Nathl Anderson on Accs
for Richd Brock's Daughter - 400," pp. 164, 165."
