meanings in old deeds

Surnames: Adkins Waller
I am often finding the phrase "of George" or "of Richard" etc. in the early 1800 deeds. Does this mean son of George or son of Richard? Or is there another meaning to the phrase? For instance in Worcester Deed book AC p. 279 I find "Thomas Waller of Richard who has since died intestate and at this time has but two legal representatives - - - other than the said Mary Adkins, wife of the said David Adkins, and Rachel Waller, wife of Richard Waller of George." Am I to take this as Thomas was the son of a Richard Waller? And that the other Richard Waller that married Rachel Waller was the son of George Waller?
