If you check out my map of IOW see the patent for Mathew Strickland… this is where you will find Thomas Boon.  He married Strickland’s daughter and as a consequence set up residence by the Blackwater River.

Dec 8, 1702
Thomas paid 1,200 pounds of tobacco for 300 acres, located on Horse swamp and running out of Blackwater River, from Mathew Strickland of Island of Wight Co, VA

This was a mile or three from George Anderson’s property.

I think George Anderson’s son Carolus met and eventually married William Boon’s daughter Mary.

The  father? brother? Nicholas Boon was present in IOW in 1676…

“Petition of His Majesties most loyal and obedient subjects of Isle of Wight

to his Majesties Commissioners, in behalf of William West, a rebel

absconding, who took up arms against the Indians by whom his father had been

most barbarously murdered, was taken prisoner and carried aboard a ship,

from hence to prison and was condemned to death, but has made his escape and

as yet has not been found. We pray for his life and the resitiution of his estate to his wife and children.”


(among the list)

Nich Boone


1719 -May 15, Abstract of NC Wills, compiled by J. Bryant Grimes, page 125

Nicholas Boon, with his brother, William was witness to the will of George Fort, Chowan Precint, NC


What proof do I have that the daughter of William Boon married Carolus Anderson?  None. … just a hunch.
