Notes


From Bruce Cotten's The Cotten Family of North Carolina -- We have record of John Cotten as early as 1701 residing in South Quay on the Blackwater river in Virginia. This place is about four miles South of the present town of Franklin and about four mile north of the North Carolina line. Its on the Nansemond side of the river and appears on a map made in 1695. John Cotten is thought to have conducted a trading post here for many years in conjunction with his plantations. The Blackwater, Nottoway and Chowan Rivers were the highways of travel and commerce between Virginia and the fringe of settlers who had planted themselves along the shores of Albemarle Sound. Canoes and flat boats traversed these streams almost to the James, and in this way we find that Mrs. Hyde widow of the late Governor of North Carolina elected to return to Virginia in 1713, stopping at John Cotten's at South Quay, and that Gov. Spotswood took advantage of these canoes to forward four barrels of gun power to Gov. Pollock of North Carolina.


In 1719 John Cotten moved his family to North Carolina.--about 15 miles or so down the river to what is now known as the Potecase Creek. and became a neighbor of Frederick Jones.

Bertie North Carolina May Court 1728, The above will was exhibited by Martha Cotten, Widow and sole executrix of John Cotten, deced. and was proved by the Oaths of Capt. Thomas Bryant, and Mary Parker, in open court in due form of law, who were evidences thereto. And then the sd. Martha took the Exrs: oath in Open Court. Test. Rt. Forster, Cler, Cur. Office of the sec. of state.--Grimes. also S.S. archives of NC


John Cotten died in 1728 in Bertie Co, NC.
Contrary to claims of other "genealogists" I think this John Cotten married only Martha Godwin of Isle of Wight and all his children were by her. [His wife certainly was NOT Martha the daughter of Frederick Jones, the chief justice of NC. She was still unmarried and underage at the time of her father's death in 1722.]
