Andersons of Colonial N. Carolina

Nansemond map

leave a comment »

This started as a study of the Back Swamp area of colonial Nansemond but is evolving into a bigger project. Such is the situations I find myself in. With the additional data of the NC deeds now readily available, it is just a matter of building and working the jigsaw puzzle pieces into a coherent map. The area known as “Nansemond” readily extended deep into North Carolina due to the dispute between the colony of Virginia and NC. I will see where this leads as the map evolves. It readily went as far south in NC as Bennett’s Creek, perhaps further.
