Dear Charlotte
I've generated an accumulation file on my possible line of paternal decent,
including information from your website (hope you don't mind). I hope
you'll find the info useful and hope that you might have some additional
info, especially on Israel in NC (you might have additional information
whether he's really related to Nathaniel or not). Any comments or
information you have would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Michael Baxter

Notes:

1)

Cheney Boyse is listed as an "ancient planter." The term

"Ancient Planter" is applied to those persons who arrived in Virginia before

1616, remained for a period of three years, paid their passage, and survived

the massacre of 1622. They received the first patents of land in the new

world as authorized by Sir Thomas Dale in 1618 for their personal adventure.

The early settlers were often granted "headrights" or parcels of land for

each male immigrant they were able to bring over.

Title: Prot Books, Port of London; Searcher; Exports from

London by English Merchants

Dates: 29 Dec. 1674 - 28 Dec. 1675

References: Lists of Exchequer, Queen's Rememberancer; Port

Books, Pt. 1, 1565-1700, p.24

Examined 22 Aug-14 Oct. 1961 Exposures: 252

Parchment Book, approx. 10" x14", consisting of 400

unnumbered folios. The book is in a very poor state. It contains hardly

one perfect folio, and nearly one-third of the folios are badly torn; of

each of the last 80 folios barely half remains. The book therefore does not

now give a complete picture of London's exports in 1675; but enough remains

to show the importance of Virginia's trade.

The book was made by the Searcher, who examined the goods

packed on board. The entries are therefore arranged in "blocks" of

commodities packed in each ship and labeled for their various destinations.

"Since the pulbication of "Hottens's Immigrants," no

successful effort has been made to gather toghether, in one volume, a list

of the thousands of persons who came into Virginia during the early period

of her life.

The records of the Land Office in Richmond remain the only

source from which these names can now be obtained...

Nearly twenty-five thousand names have been collected from

the original records and arranged in alphabetical order. The search has

been systematic and thorough, and every neme from 1623 (when the records

begin) down to 1666 has been noted, with the date of appearance. ...

From: 1623-1666 Early Virginia Immigrants, Greer, George

Cabell (Clerk Virginia State Land Office), Baltimore, Geneological

Publishing Co., 1960. (copy obtained from the Library of California State

College at Fullerton).

NOTE: a) headrights could be claimed on anyone entering

Virginia, b) if the claimant paid for the individuals passage, a period of

indenture might have been agreed upon, c) abuses of the headright system

were widespread, d) headrights often were not claimed at the actual time of

entrance to Virginia.

NOTE: No Baxters are found to have claimed headrights in

Virginia as listed in Greer's text.

PITT COUNTY, NC - TAXLIST - Pitt List of Taxables, 1763.

P>

A List of the Taxables,

Pitt County, North Carolina

for the year 1763

Transcribed By Roger Kammerer

The 1763 tax enumerators listed the white polls and black

polls in two

separate documents. Follows is a transcript of the white

polls list in

the North Carolina Archives, # ___________; the list of

black polls

could not be located. The extant list shows totals of blacks

and whites

on its last page. Edward Salter, Junior Clerk of Court,

testified to the

authenticity of the list, and probably acted as scribe for

this bound

copy as submitted to the office of the Secretary of State in

1763. The

handwriting is clear and legible, leaving only blobs or aged

paper to

cause the transcriber much difficulty.

Typesetting conventions: Punctuation has been added for

readability.

This transcription uses commas to separate the surname of

the tax payer,

and semi-colons to separate the other names on the same

line. No commas

have been used to offset titles such as Jr., Sr., or

Constable (spelled

Counstable). Spelling has been retained as in the original.

Questionable

letters or words are indicated with editorial comments in

brackets.

In March of 1743, Israel appeared before the court at New

Bern to answer a charge brought against him by one Robert Fitz-Randolph. He

lost his case when the jury awarded the Plaintiff L44 and costs. At the next

term of court held in June, he faced a more serious charge brought in behalf

of King George II against him and again he lost. He moved to the adjoining

county of Pitt and there made a deed of gift to his children Stephen,

Sarah, David, Theophilus, and Rebecca in 1763, and the next year he gave
