Andersons of Colonial N. Carolina

IOW map…

I’ve updated with numerous patents… I’m approaching about 300 now which may be about the halfway point.

The historically-inclined can pick out many of the rebels of Bacon’s shenanigans of 1676… Robert Stokes (hanged),

William West, Anthony Fulgrahm. John Marshall and others…  Thomas Dew pops up on the east side of Nansemond

River…  Henry Plumpton still has me baffled.  I’m trying to limit the map to “first” patents but consulted William Byrd

with his survey notes of 1728 near the Dismal Swamp.  Around the area of Chuckatuck I am bedeviled with finding

“Beverly Creek”.      … confusing stuff…

  1. The Thomas Harris 1000 acre Patent of 1658 was renewed by him in 1664. The original patent was for transporting 20 persons: John Hardy, Alexander Vaughn, Ann Lees, William Todd, Eliz. Jones, Mary Wood, John Davis, John Griffin, Fran. Anderson, Jno. Pew, Ann Greene, Eliza. Ensome (or Eusome), Weltin Harris, Anth. Arnold, Sam Trobury, Alexander Cahill. Ref: Nugent, “Cavaliers and Pioneers” Vol. 1, p 386. He deserted this patent and it was reassigned to Capt Joseph Bridger on 6 Jan 1668, exact dimensions given. This Thomas Harris was a LT COL in Bacons Rebellion and hung by Governor Berkley in Jan 1677 for his role. This land was actually bordered by land of John Hardy, Matthew Tomlin and William West (another in Bacon’s Rebellion that was ordered hung but escaped and later pardoned) as recorded in various deed records.

      See this map for a more comprehensive view of my idea of where these folks land was:

      Note all the other landholders surrounding the HARRIS patents in IOW. Also find WM WEST after Bacon’s Rebellion ended and West had reestablished himself. I think the original WEST property was located relatively close to the historical Bracewell church prior to the rebellion of 1676.

      Again, this is my “best guess” for where these patent location were.
