“Upon Petition of Sam Bond praying to prove Three Rights is admitted & proves Rights to one Hundred & Fifty acres of land by the Importacon of Henry Grace, James Hurt & William Bruing & assignes the Same in open Court to Isaac Wilson”.

(Colonial Records of North Carolina, Page 651).

99-10A140-1722---James Hurt, King William County, Va.

By deed dated 7-18-1722, James Hurt and wife, Hannah Hurt, conveyed to his brother William Hurt, 74 ½ acres of land in King William County, Va.

(Deed Book 2, Page 107, King William County, Va.) (Note by O. H.: James and William Hurt (d. 1749) were sons of John Hurt (d. 1724) and grandsons of William Hurt Sr. (d. after 1704). This 74 ½ acres place was ¼ of the 298 acres patented by William Hurt Sr. on 10-24-1701 and is located near where Herring Creek runs into the Mattaponi River, on the south side of the river, about two miles upstream 9northwest) from present day Aylett, Va. It was in St. David’s Parish after 1744.) (Colonial Caroline, Page 101, also 1L42). This 74 ½ acres was left to James Hurt by the will of his grandfather, William Hurt Sr.)

100-9B68-1725---James Hurt, King William County, Va.

James Hurt, on 8-17-1725, patented 368 acres of land on Polecat Creek and Reedy Swamp in St. John’s Parish, King William County, Va. adjoining William Eubanks. (T. E. Campbell in his Colonial Caroline says it also adjoined Hurt.)

(Land Book 12, Page 253, or 258) (Note by O. H.: This land after 1727 was in St. Margaret’s Parish Caroline County. On page 441 of the Colonial Churches of King and Queen and King William Counties by C. G. Mason, it is stated that “When King and Queen County was created in 1691, the area between the ridge and the Pamunkey River, formerly a part of St. Peter’s Parish, was included in St. John’s Parish, making it coterminous with Pamunkey Neck, which was then formed into the new county of King William, in 1701. The upper part of St. John’s Parish was cut off as St. Margaret’s Parish in 1720, and a similar division of St. Stephen’s Parish created Drysdale Parish in 1723”. I do not have the full wording of this 1725 grant to James Hurt, but if the abstract of it is correct in placing the 368 acres on Polecat Creek and Reedy Swamp, it appears that it was in St. Margaret’s Parish in Caroline County after 1727. This grant was in 1725, but says that it was in St. John’s Parish. This suggests that we have some error in the abstract given above of this 368 acre grant.

101-9B64-1736---James Hurt, King William County, Va.

Under date of 9-8-1736, James Hurt of King William County, Va. Patented 1263 acres of land on the lower south fork of Stock’s Creek near the Appomattox River in Amelia County, Va.

(Land Book 17, Page 178) (Note by O. H.: I have the full wording of this land grant in 14A18. I believe that this was the same James Hurt as the James Hurt who patented 368 acres of land on 8-17-1725 and was a son of John Hurt (d. 1724) and a brother of “John Hurt, son of John”, William Hurt, the elder (d. 1749) and possibly of Joseph Hurt.)

(Page 18)

102-11A100-1737---James Hurt, Louisa County, Va.

James Hurt and his wife, Jane Bickley Hurt, were sureties of some nature at the birth of Humphrey Bickley on 3-26-1737. Humphrey Bickley was a son of John Bickley and his wife, Mary Hurt Bickley who was a sister of this James Hurt. They appear to have been living in Louisa County, Va. at that time. James and Jane Bickley Hurt were the father and mother of John Hurt, the Revolutionary War Chaplain (d. 1801), an only child. William Hurt (died in Amelia County, Va. In 1795), either a brother or nephew (I believe he was a brother) of James Hurt and Mary Hurt Bickley, was surety at the birth of Mary Bickley (daughter of John and Mary Hurt Bickley) on 2-13-1746-7.

(From old Bible record of John and Mary Hurt Bickley, a photo static copy of which I have.) (Note by O. H.: I have no proof, but I believe that this James Hurt was a son of James Hurt of King William County, Va. who was a son of John Hurt (d. 1724).

Halifax County was cut off of Edgecombe County and made into the new county of Halifax in the year 1758. Joel Hurt was living in that part of Edgecombe County that became Halifax County in 1758. He moved there sometime after 1756 (or in 1756) when he sold out in Caroline County, Va. and before he bought this 320 acres of land on 6-27-1758. He may have bought other land there between 1756 and 1758. The records of Edgecombe County should be checked for this. I am confident that this is the same Joel Hurt in Caroline County, Va.

189-13A66-1768---Joel Hurt, Amelia County, Va.

Joel Hurt of Amelia County, Va., son of John Hurt and brother of John Hurt Jun’r and grandson of William Hurt, the elder (d. 1749), in August 1768 moved to Halifax County, Va and married a second time to Tabitha Collins, daughter of James Collins. Joel Hurt had a daughter by his first wife, Mary Hurt (d. 1767), named Sarah Anderson Hurt. Mary Hurt died shortly before 2-27-1767. (See numbers 184 and 185 above)

(Deed Book 7, Page 211, Halifax County, Va.) (Note by O. H.: I do not know the family name of Mary Hurt, the first wife of Joel Hurt, but suspect that it was Anderson because they named a daughter Sarah Anderson. Did Joel Hurt and his first wife, Mary have any other children besides Sarah Anderson Hurt? Probably not. I am trying to identify Joe, John, Joseph and William who were living in Spartanburg County, S. C. around 1810 as the children of Joel Hurt Jun’r, a supposed son of Joel Hurt Sen’r of Halifax County, N. C. and later of Hancock County, Ga. The three Joel, John and William Hurt shown in No. 197 below were most likely sons of John Hurt of Surry County, N. C. He had sons by these names who were the right ages to have been soldiers of the Revolution.).

190-13A66-1768---Joel Hurt, Amelia County, Va.

Joel Hurt of Halifax County and late of Amelia County, va. made an agreement with James and William Collins concerning the contemplated marriage brtween Joel Hurt and Tabitha Collins, daughter of James Collins, involving a slave girl named Nan. The Agreement was dated 8-18-1768.

(Deed Book 7, Page 211, Halifax County, Va.)

191-10A25-1771---Joel Hurt, Halifax County, Va.

By deed dated 5-20-1771, Joel Hurt of Halifax County, Va. conveyed to John Hurt of Halifax County, Va. for 10 pounds current money 38 acres of land on the Buffalow Creek in Halifax County, Va. on the line of John Hurt.

(Deed Book 8, Page 231, Halifax County, Va.)

192-10A23-1771---Joel Hurt, Halifax County, N. C.

By deed dated 5-20-1771, Joel Hurt of Halifax County, N. C. conveyed to Wm. Brown 7 ½ acres of land in Halifax County, N.C. on the line of Joel Hurt etal. No wife mentioned.

(Deed Book4, Page 316, Halifax County, N. C. ) (Note by O. H.: It is noted that the date of this deed is exactly the samem to the day, as No. 191 above. That was purely a coincident for these were two different Joel Hurts. They were uncle and nephew. Joel of Halifax County, N. C. was an uncle of the Joel Hurt of Halifax County, Va. This is assuming that I am correct in saying that Joel Hurt of Halifax County, N. C. is the same as Joel Hurt of Caroline County, Va. as they seem to be.

(Page 30)

This Joel Hurt of Halifax County, N. C. was the ancestor of the large and prominent Georgia Hurt family that used the names of Elisha, William etc on down to the present generation. No. 175 above gives the name of the wife of this Joel Hurt of Halifax County, N. C. as Hannah Hurt, again assuming that the Joel Hurt of Caroline County, Va. was the same person as Joel of Halifax County, N. C. and I firmly believe that they were the same person. I can identify only four children of that Joel Hurt of Halifax County, N. C. for sure, but feel certain that there was a fifth one, viz: Joel Hurt Junior. The five were, viz:

(1) William Hurt, born 1756 and died in 1812. He married Frances Yancey, daughter of Jaconias Yancey of Halifax County, N. C. on 1-16-17770

(2) Elisha Hurt. I do not know the date of his birth, but he was probably born in the latter part of the 1750s. He died in Warren County, Ga. In 1829. He married Priscilla Brinkley, daughter of Judith Brinkley of Halifax County, N. C.

(3) Mary Hurt. She married Captain Edmund Gamble of Halifax County, N. C.

(4) Elizabeth Hurt (?). She married William Burt of Halifax County, N. C. See No. 211 below.

(5) Joel Hurt Junior (?). See 208-209-210-211. The fact that Joel Hurt of Hancock County, Ga. Signed those four deeds of gift as Joel Hurt Senior, indicated that there was a Joel Hurt Junior. So I am speculating that he had a son named Joel Hurt Jr. who may have been the father of Joel, John, Joseph and William Hurt who were living in Spartanburg County, S. C. around 1810, and for whom I have so far been unable to find parents for. See numbers 216-313-341-642 below.

193-10A25-1771---Joel Hurt, Halifax County, Va.

By deed dated 6-20-1771, James Collins of Halifax County, Va. conveyed to Joel Hurt of Halifax County, Va. for 50 pounds current money 51 acres of land on the Branches of Buffalow River in Halifax County, Va.

H.: This is the earliest deed that I find where Joel Hurt II purchase land in Halifax County, Va. , although Joel had been living in Halifax County since August 1768. Yet on this same date 6-20-1771, he conveyed to John Collins 125 ½ acres and on 5-20-1771, he conveyed to John Hurt 38 acres, all on Buffalow Creek. He must have patented land not shown in the deed books of Halifax County, Va.

194-10A25-1771---Joel Hurt, Halifax County, Va.

By deed dated 6-20-1771, Joel Hurt of Halifax County, Va. conveyed to John Collins of Halifax County, Va. for 100 pounds current money of Virginia, 125 ½ acres of land on Buffalow Creek in Halifax County, Va. Deed signed by Joel Hurt and wife, Tabitha Hurt.

H.: This was undoubtedly the Joel Hurt (wife Tabitha Collins Hurt) who sold out in Halifax County, Va. by deed dated 9-17-1778 and no further reference to him is found in Halifax County, Va. Records.)

199-10A20-1778---Joel Hurt, Halifax County, N. C.

Thomas Montfort of Old Point Comfort) of Lunenburg County, Va. Montfort Stokes was born in Lunenburg County, Va. on 3-12-1762 and was only 16 years old when he witnessed this deed, if we have his birth date from the old David Stokes family Bible correct. He later became Governor of North Caroline and a U. S. Senator from that state.)

John Hurt of King William County, Va. under date of Feb. 20-1724, patented 400 acres of land in King William County but which was in Caroline County after the formation of that county in 1727. This grant was recorded in Land Book 11, Page 330. The grant is as follows:

George etc. To all etc. Know ye that for divers good causes and considerations but more especially for and in consideration of the sum of 40 Shillings of good and lawful money for our use paid to our Receiver- General of our Revenues in this our Colony and Dominion of Virginia, We have given , granted and confirmed and by these presents for us our heirs and successors do give grant and confirm unto John Hurt of King William County one certain tract or parcel of land containing 400 acres lying and being between Polecat Swamp and the Reedy Swamp in St. John’s Parish in King William County aforesaid and bounded as followed to-wit: Beginning at a gum standing in the Reedy Swamp thence 30 East 378 poles to a black oak by 3 small white oaks on a level in Mr. Walker’s back line then along his line North 60 West 168 poles to 2 small corner red oak saplins of Mr. Walker’s by a valley thence South 30 West 378 to a red oak, white oak, and poplar standing by the East side of the Reedy Swamp”

(Page 35A)

This page No. 35A is inserted here after those 659 records (revised) of the early Hurt family of Virginia had been run off on the mimeograph duplicating machine, in order to make a correction in the date of this land grant to John Hurt and to give a better version of the grant.

As I explained, I did not have the date of this grant and I attempted to supply the date from the authorization for changing beneficiary under this grant from John Hurt, deceased to his oldest son and heir, William Hurt, which is shown under No, 581 on page 88 herein, under the heading of William Hurt. That authorization was dated December 9, 1724. I quote from this authorization, as follows: “that the patent for the said Land past in the name of the said John Hurt some few days after his decease”. Also, “the patent granted in the name of the aforesaid John Hurt for the aforesaid hour hundred acres of Land bearing date the twentieth day of February last past”. The “February last past” viewed from December 9th, 1724 should mean that the date of the grant was February 20, 1723, as shown by the corrected copy sent to me by Miss Mary Tyler Louthan of Richmond, Va. She copied it from the Land Patent Book 11, Page 330, in the Virginia State Library at Richmond. Miss Louthan is a descendant of Benjamin Hurt (d. 1769). I have been giving the date of the death of this John Hurt as 17240 It is now clear that he died in February 1723.

The following is the corrected grant dated February 20, 1723:

“George etc. To all etc. Know ye that for divers good causes and considerations but more especially for an in consideration of 40 shillings of good and lawful money for our use paid to our receiver- General of our Revenues in this our Colony andDominion of Virginia, We have given, granted and confirmed and by these presents for us our heirs and successors do give grant and confirm unto JOHN HURT of King William County one certain tract or parcel of land containing 400 acres lying and being between Polecat Swamp and the Reedy Swamp in St. John’s Parish in King William County aforesaid and bounded as follows to-wit: Beginning at a gum standing in the Reedy Swamp thence North 30 East 378 poles to a black oak by 3 small white oaks on a level in Mr. Walker’s back line then along his line North 60 West 168 poles to 2 small corner red oak saplins of Mr. Walker’s by a valley??? By the East side of the Reedy Swamp and lastly South sixty East 168 poles to the beginning etc. With All etc. To Have Hold and to Behold etc. Yielding and Paying etc. Provided. In Witness etc. Govr. etc. ??? Williamsburgh under the seal of our said Colony the twentieth day of February one thousand seven hundred and twenty three in the tenth year of our Reign.

(Note by O. H.: This grant as I have it does not have a date, but the 2-20-1724 date is supplied from number 581 under the heading of William Hurt where is given the authorization for the change of the grant to William hurt, eldest son of John Hurt which was done because soon after the 2-20-1724 grant to John Hurt, he died and before the title had been perfected in him. On 12-9-1724, the right to take title to this 400 acres of land was given to John’s eldest son, William Hurt.

John Hurt and Richard Brown were witnesses to marriage of John Hurt to Mary Ivy in Norfolk County, Va. by bond dated 5-7-1759. (Note by O. H.: This evidently means that he signed his own bond with Richard Brown which was the usual procedure.)

This John Hurt died in Norfolk County, Va. in 1781. His will was dated 4-1-1781 and probated in Norfolk County at December 1781 Term of Court. In his will, he mentioned “natural Son” John Hurt alias John Cooper, son of Lydia Writing whose maiden name was Lydia Cooper. A daughter, Mary Hurt, was then a minor. (A Mary Hurt married James Graham by bond in Norfolk County, Va. Dated 5-2-1801, This was probably his daughter. O?H.) He also mentioned a brother, Caleb hurt, who, he said was away at sea.

(Deed Book 5, Page 37, Halifax County, Va.) (Note by O. H.: John Hurt undoubtedly moved to Halifax County, Va. from Amelia County, Va. a comparatively short time before he bought this land in Halifax County from James Collins. I feel certain that he was a brother of Joel Hurt II (both the same as the Joel and John Hurt Jr. in No. 266 above) who moved from Amelia County, Va. in August 1768 to Halifax County, Va. and was following his brother John there and married Tabitha Collins, daughter of James Collins, there. Joel Hurt lived on land on Buffalow Creek adjoining the land of John Hurt. I have not yet found out how Joel obtained this land. I find no deed in Halifax County, Va. to Joel for it. He and John both probably patented the land that they first acquired in Halifax County.)

270-13A33-1765---John Hurt, Amelia County, Va.

Under date of 6-5-1765, John Hurt of Amelia County, Va. conveyed to Thomas Tabb of Amelia County, Va., for 79 pounds, 200 acres of land in Amelia County, Va. “Whereon the said John Hurt now dwells”, bounded by Francis Anderson, Thomas Foster, Walker, Elizabeth Allen and Wm Foster.

(Deed Book 8, Page 679 (Old Page 621), Amelia County, Va.) (Note by O. H.: Now who was this John Hurt? In No. 232 above we find John Hurt living in Amelia County, Va. as early as January 1736. In fork of Stock’s Creek in Amelia County. In No. 249 we find James Hurt conveying to him 400 acres of land on Stock’s Creek out of the 1263acres granted to him in 1736. In No. 261 we find “John Hurt orphan of John Hurt” choosing a guardian. That, of course, means that his father John Hurt was dead, who died leaving the unsold part of his land holdings. In No. 270 we find John Hurt (evidently this orphan John) selling to Thomas Tabb 200 acres of his father’s land. This could not have been the John Hurt who moved to Halifax County, Va. Before 1764. Who was the father of the John Hurt Sr. who we find in Amelia County as early as 1736? I believe that his father was James Hurt of King William County, Va. Who patented that 1263 acres of land on Stock’s Creek in 1736. James Hurt’s father was John Hurt (d. 1724) whose father was William Hurt Sr. who died after 1704 in King William County, Va.)

273-6B66-1766---John Hurt Sr., Bedford County, Va.

John Hurt Sr. died in Bedford County, Va. on 4-2-1853 with pneumonia at the age of 87. This puts his birth year at 1766. The record of his death in Bedford County says that he was born in Caroline County, Va. And that he was a son of John Hurt. (Note by O. H.: This John Hurt was a brother of a Garland Hurt who died in Bedford County in 1818. I believe that William O. Hurt who died in Bedford County in 1819 and George Hurt were also his brothers. Betsy Ann Hurt, widow of Garland Hurt, in an 1843 statement said that George Hurt served with her brothers in the Revolutionary War.

274-2B39-1768---John Hurt Senior, Amelia County, Va.

This John Hurt Sr., who we first find living on Stocks Creek in Amelia County, Va. in 1736, was a son of William Hurt, the elder (d. 1749) and was probably his oldest son. He was born in King William County, Va. In the first decade of the 1700s. He died in Amelia County in about 1754. His wife was Margaret Hurt. He was the father of Joel Hurt II and John Hurt Jr. It appears very likely that this John Hurt Sr. left a will. However, we can not find any record of it, or an administration of his estate, in Amelia County. How did their father give joint title to Joel Hurt II and his brother, John Hurt Jr. to that 200 acre tract that they sold to John Tabb in 1761? (Record No. 266). This appears to be the other half of the 400 acres on Flatt Creek patented in 1734 by William Hurt, the elder (D. 1749). The first half was sold in 1756 by Joel Hurt I, who undoubtedly got title to it through the 1748 will of his father, William Hurt, William Hurt, the elder (d. 1749). Also, how did his father give title in his name only, to Joel Hurt II to the 200 acre tract on Ellises Fork of Flat Creek which was half of the 400 acre tract patentedby William Hurt, the elder, in 1738, and which Joel Hurt II sold to his uncle William Hurt in 1768? His uncle, William Hurt, owned the other half of this 400 acres, which he undoubtedly got through the 1748 will of his father (Record No. 187). Joel Hurt II and his brother, John Hurt Jr. said in that 1761 deed to John Tabb that that 200 acres was given to them by their father. Both of them were children in their early teens when their father died in about 1754. John Hurt Sr. appears to have gotten title to these two 200 acre tracts through the 1748 will of his father, William Hurt, the elder (d. 1749).

275-11A140-1768---John Hurt was in “Persons on Poll Lists of Amelia County, Va. on 12-6-1768 for election of Burgesses”. From affidavit of Richard Jones, Sheriff, dated 12-24-1768.

(Tyler’s, Vol. 33, pages 34-69), (Note by O. H.: This was probably the same John Hurt as the John Hurt in record numbers 260, 270 and 272 above).

281-9A151-1776---John Hurt, the Chaplain, Louisa County, Va.

John Hurt, a Virginian in the Revolution. He was Chaplain in the 6th Virginia Regiment in the Continental Line beginning Oct. 1st, 1776. He was made Brigade Chaplain on August 18, 1778 and served to the Close of the war. He became Chaplain in the U. S. Army on March 4th, 1791 and resigned on April 30th, 1794. He was awarded 7000 acres of land for his seven years war service.

(Historical Register of Virginians in the Revolution, 1775-1783, by John Hastings Gwathmey, Page 405.) (Note by O. H.: John Hurt, the Chaplain, was a son of James Hurt and his wife Jane Bickley Hurt. He was born in the latter part of the 1730s, probably about 1738 and died in Louisa County, Va. in the latter part of 1801. His will, dated 9-25-1801 was probated in Louisa County on 1-11-1802 and was recorded there in Will Book 5, Pages 61-64-65. His will seems to indicate that he had no family as he left his property to cousins.)

282-2B26-1777---Rev. John Hurt, Virginia

Rev. John Hurt baptized Owen Temple, son of Temple and Ann G. Burke, born on 1-10-1777.

(Old Bible record, Va. Historical Magazine, Vol. 16, Page 213) (Note by O. H.: This Rev. John Hurt was probably the Chaplain.)

283-2B26-1777---John Hurt, Powhatan County, Va.

On 7-31-1777, John Hurt subscribed $3.00 toward a fund to hire recruits for the Army to prevent the taking the local militia from Powhatan County, Va.

(Virginia Historical Magazine, Vol. 35, Page 196.)

(Page 44)

(Noet by O. H.: Who was this John Hurt? This could have been the John hurt of numbers 260, 270, 272, 275 and 277 shown above. He lived in the northern part of Amelia County and seemed to have disappeared from the records of that county. Powhatan County is separated from Amelia County by the Appomattox River. John Hurt lived near the south bank of that river and could have easily moved across the river into Powhatan County. He could have been the father of Zachariah Hurt,, a Revolutionary War Soldier, who is said to have been born in 1763 in Powhatan County and for whose parents we have been searching for a long time. This Amelia County John Hurt referred to was probably born around 1740 or a little before and would have been in his middle twenties when Zachariah Hurt was born in 1763. This is just a thought to work on.)

284-13A62-1777---John Hurt, North Carolina

John Hurt, Revolutionary Soldier, was in Capt. Robert Porrter’s Company of Tryon, N. C. His name appears on a list dated 10-3-1777 which shows that he was discharged December 30th (year not given but was 1778. O. H.), that he was in the service 71 days, that his wages were 2 shillings 6 pence per day. Total 8 pounds 17 shillings 6 pence.

286-13A3-1778---John Hurt, Halifax County, Va.

By deed dated 10-15-1778, John Hurt of Halifax County, Va. conveyed to John Ward of Charlotte County, Va. Va. for 300 pounds, 223 acres pf land on both sides of Buffalow Creek in Halifax County, Va. John Hurt signed his mark. Wife did not sign.

(Deed Book 11, Page 139, Halifax County, Va.) (Note by O. H.: This John Hurt was undoubtedly from Amelia County, Va. and moved to Halifax County, Va. before 1764 and was a brother of Joel Hurt II, who followed his brother, John, from Amelia County, Va. in August 1768 and acquired land adjoining John Hurt on Buffalow Creek in Halifax County. I believe that this John Hurt was the same John Hurt who patented 500 acres of land on South side of the Yadkin River in Surry County, N. C. in 1782 and whose wife was Polly Hurt. Inasmuch as they named a son Robert King Hurt, Polly, his mother, was very likely a daughter of Robert King (wife, Mary) who died in Halifax County, Va. in 1757. (Will Book O, Pages 73-74, Halifax County, Va.) This sell out in Halifax County by John Hurt on 10-15-1778, followed by less than a month the sell out by Joel Hurt of his 200 acres on 9-17-1778 which 200 acres adjoined the land of John Hurt on Buffalow Creek.

John Hurt, according to a death record in Bedford County, Va. Died on 4-2-1853 of pneumonia at the age of 87. This death record says that John Hurt was a son of John Hurt and that he was born in Caroline County, Va. His birth year was 1766. John Hurt left a will dated 4-2-1853 and probated 4-25-1853 and recorded in Will Book 14, Page 513, Bedford County, Va. His wife was Mary (called Polly in some places) who seems to have predeceased him. His will names nine children.

312-11A13-1804---John Hurt, Nottoway County, Va.

At a Court held for Nottoway County, Va. on _________ 1804.

“Lief given John Hurt to erect dam on Elli’ Fork for grist mill for ten feet of water”

(Nottoway County Court Order Book 3, in 1804.) (From notes of South Side Virginia by Walter A. Watson, Page 81) (Note by O. H.: This John Hurt was a son of William Hurt, who died in Nottoway County, Va. In 1796 and his second wife, Charity Hurt. The land on which this dam was built was devised by will of William Hurt to his son, John Hurt and is part of 800 acres of land patented by John Hurt’s grandfather, William Hurt, the elder, who died in Caroline County, Va. in 1749, in 1734 and 1738. It is said that the ruins of this old dam are plainly visible to this day.)

313-14A12-1808---John Hurt, Spartanburg County, S. C.

John Hurt, wife, Ester Hurt, conveyed 50 acres of land on a Branch of Tygar River in Spartanburg County, S. C. to James Vernon by deed dated 5-6-1808.

(Deed Book 1, Page 290, Spartan County, S. C.) (Note by Editor: Should be Spartanburg County.)

(Page 48)

(Note by O. H.: This John Hurt in No. 313 above, a Joel Hurt, a Joseph Hurt and a William Hurt were living in Spartanburg County, S. C. around about this time. Who were they? I know two lines that have descended from one or two of them but have been unable to connect these four further back, without anything more than a hunch and that it would fit that way, and that is, I am speculating that they were sons Joel Hurt Junior, a supposed son of Joel Hurt Senior of Halifax County, N. C. and Hancock County, Ga. (See numbers 216, 341 and 642.)

314-5B56-1808---John Hurt, Amelia County, Va.

John Hurt married Elizabeth Allen, daughter of Samuel Allen and wife, Tabitha Allen, by bond in Amelia County, Va. dated 1-8-1808. See will of Samuel Allen dated 5-6-1817, probated on 8-28-1817 and recorded in Will Book 8, Page 400, Amelia County, Va. (Note by O. H.: I believe this John Hurt was a son of William Hurt who died in Amelia County, Ca. in 1795. The Allen family appears to have lived in the northern part of Amelia County where we know the family of William Hurt (d. 1795) resided. John Hurt was named in the will of William Hurt (d. 1795) See No. 637. Yet it is possible that this John Hurt was the John Hurt, son of James Hurt and who was bound to Thomas Perkins Overton as an apprentice in 1787. See No. 304.)

315-13A65-1810---John Hurt, Prince Edward County, Va.-

The 1810 U. S. Census says that John Hurt was living in Prince Edward County, Va. In 1810. (Note by O. H.: This was probably the same John Hurt who married Sally Franklin in Prince Edward County, Va. on 3-29-1796 and died there in 1824.)

316-11A19-1813---John Hurt, deceased, Surry County, N. C.

John Hurt, son of John Hurt, deceased, conveyed to Peter Kerby land on line of John Cook and John Hurt, deceased, on west side of Yadkin River in Surry County, Va. by deed dated 10-25-1813.

(Deed Book N, Page 296, Surry County, N. C.) (Note by O. H.: This deed shows that John Hurt Sr. died before 1813.)

317-1L63-1740 Joseph Hurt, King William County, Va.

Under date of 12-1-1740, Joseph Hurt received a grant of 300 acres of land in Amelia County, Va. on both sides of the Great Bent Run adjoining Jacob Seay, Benj. Clemmons and James Hurt’s lines. This 300 acres adjoined James Hurt’s 1263 acres on Stock’s Creek and near the Appomattox River (Great Bent Run empties into the Appomattox River a short distance east of the mouth of Stock’s Creek) which was granted to James Hurt in 1736.

(Land Book 19, Page 879.) (See 1L63 for full wording of this 300 acres grant to Joseph Hurt.) (Note by O. H.: The place where Joseph Hurt was living is not given in this grant, but Joseph sold this 300 acres by deed dated 5-18-1744 (See 323 below) in which deed he said that he was living in St. John’s Parish in King William County, Va. Just where in King William County Joseph was living is not exactly clear. When Caroline County was cut off from Essex, King and Queen and King William Counties in 1727, St. Margaret’s Parish extended down into what was left of King William County and adjoined St. John’s Parish in King William County. But in 1744 the part of St. Margaret’s that extended into King William County and the upper part of St. John’s was formed into a new Parish called St. David’s Parish.

(Page 101, Colonial Caroline.) So if Joseph, who is thought to have been a brother of James Hurt, was living near James and the other Hurts, he was probably living in St. David’s Parish after 1744.

(Page 49)

318-1G14-1741---Joseph Hurt, Amelia County, Va.

At a Court held for Amelia County, Va. on 8-21-1741.

Joseph was sued by John Burton and got judgement for 3 pounds and 15 shillings on 8-21-1741 in Amelia County, Va.

(Order Book 1, (1735-1746), Page 168, Amelia County, Va.)

319-14A22-1741---Joseph Hurt, Amelia County, Va.

At a Court held for Amelia County, Va. on 12-18-1741.

“In the action of Debt between Henry Farley, plant and Joseph Hurt Defend the Defend pleaded not guilty & the Plant having Joyend (?) the Jpne(?) the trial thereof is referred to next Court”.

(Order Book1, Page 180. Amelia County, Va.)

320-11A63-1742---Joseph Hurt, Amelia County (or King William County), Va.

At a Court held for Amelia County, Va. on 9-17-1742.

“In the suit by attachment obtained by John Burton Gent Plaintiff against the Estate of Joseph Hurt the said John Burton produced an acct against the said Joseph Hurt and made Oath that he has received nothing in satisfaction thereof. Therefore it is considered by the Court that the said John recover against the said Joseph the sum of three pounds fifteen shillings and also his costs by him in his behalf expended and the sheriff having made return that he had attached the Estate in the hands of Henry Farley belonging to the said Joseph and the said Henry appearing on his oath do say that he had not any of the said Joseph’s Estate in his hands. Therefore at the Plaintiff’s motion the said attachment is continued untill the next Court”.

(Order Book 1, Page 219, Amelia County, Va.) (Note by O. H.: It is difficult to determine just what was the situation with the Joseph Hurt in this record No. 320 and No. 319 above and 321, 322 and 323 below. Were the Joseph Hurts in these several records the same person? Was Joseph Hurt in Amelia County in 1741 when John Burton first brought suit against him? (See 319 above). Did he then go back to King William County and Burton tried to attach anything that he could find belonging to Joseph Hurt? Or did the attachment against the “Estate” of Joseph Hurt mean that he had died? I don’t really know for certain, but I am inclined to believe that the reason that Burton brought “suit by attachment” was because Joseph Hurt had left the county and had gone back to King William County and Burton was trying to attach anything that he could find belonging to Joseph Hurt.)

321-13A34-1742---Joseph Hurt, Amelia County (or King William County), Va.

At a Court held for Amelia County, Va. on 10-16-1742.

“In the attachment obtained by John Burton against the Estate of Joseph Hurt at the motion of the said Burton the attachment is continued”.

(Order Book 1, Page 221, Amelia County, Va.)

322-13A34-1742---Joseph Hurt, Amelia County (or King William County), Va.

At a Court held for Amelia County, Va. on 12-18-1742.

“In the suit by attachment obtained by John Burton Gent against Joseph Hurt the sheriff having attached one horn and bell ordered he sell same and pay the money arising from the sale thereof to the Plant’f also return an account thereof to the next Court”.

(Order Book 1, Page 225, Amelia County, Va.) (Note by O. H.: It is noted that this record does not say anything about the “Estate” of Joseph Hurt. The fact that the sheriff found some property belonging to Joseph Hurt in Amelia County seems to indicate that Joseph had lived in Amelia County and had gone back to King William County.)

(Page 50)

323-7B3-1744---Joseph Hurt, King William County, Va.

Under date of May 18th, 1744, Joseph Hurt of the Parish of Saint John’s, King William County, Va. conveyed to Hezekiah Ford of Raleigh Parish, Amelia County, Va. for 30 pounds, 300 acres of land in Amelia County, Va. on both sides of the Great Bent Run adjoining Jacob Seay, Benj. Clement and James Hurt.

(Deed Book 2, Page 55, Amelia County, Va.) (Note by O. H.: We know that this Joseph Hurt was the same person as the Joseph Hurt who patented this same land in 1740 (see No. 317 above) If the Joseph Hurt whose “Estate” was being sued by attachment by John Burton in 1742 (See No. 320 above) was a dead Joseph Hurt then there were two Joseph Hurts in Amelia County or owning land in Amelia County a the same time. I feel that there was only one Joseph Hurt envolved here. He moved to Amelia County from King William County and was in Amelia County in 1740 when John Burton first brought suit against him. Then, before 1742, he moved back to King William County which forced Burton to sue by attachment. That is my hunch, but, of course, I don’t know for certain. It would have been a very natural thing for Joseph to move to Amelia County following his acquiring by patent that 300 acres of land over there in 1740 and then preferring his old home in King William County, moved back before 1742.)

324-11A66-1748---Joseph Hurt, probably King William County, Va.

At a Court held for Amelia County, Va. on 8-20-1748.

‘Joseph Hurt vs. John Harris deft - In case - This day came the parties by their attornies and by their mutual consenting and that this suit be dismissed”.

(Order Book 2, Page 108, Amelia County, Va.) (Note by O. H.: It is noted that Joseph Hurt brought this suit by his attorney. He could have been living in King William County or elsewhere. I believe that he was the Joseph Hurt who lived in King William County.)

325-1G15-1749---Joseph Hurt, probably King William County, Va.

Joseph Hurt patented 83 acres of land at the head branch of Spring Creek in Amelia County, Va. on 3-28-1749.

(Land Book and page not given). (Note by O. H.: I do not know where this Joseph Hurt was living when he patented this land. I will look up this grant the next time I am in the Va. State Library at Richmond and make a copy of it. It may give us the answer as to where he was living.)

(Page 52)

(Note by O.H.: I am confident that the Joseph Hurt in this No. 335 and the Joseph Hurt in the forgotten numbers 326, 327, 328, 329, 330, 331, 332, 333 and 334 are the same person. But who was he? Who was his father? It is a complete puzzle to me at this time.)

(Page 64, Virginia Tax Payers 1782-1787, other than those published by the U. S. Census Bureau.) (Note by O.H.: Could this have been the Caroline County, Joseph Hurt? Probably not. This Henry County Joseph Hurt appears to have been too young for that. I went to Henry County, Va. And tried to get something on this Henry County Joseph Hurt. But I could find nothing there. He may have moved to Montgomery County, N. C. but I found no trace of him there. I wonder if he could have gone to Spartanburg County, S. C. where a Joseph Hurt sold land in 1811 and died there in 1837? See No. 341 below.)

342-9B71-1744/5---Joshua (?) Hurt, Louisa County, Va.

Joshua Hurt was a surety of some nature at the birth of Hannah Bickley, daughter of John and Mary Hurt Bickley, born 1-8-1744/5, probably in Louisa County, Va.

(Old Bible Record of the John Bickley family.) (Note by O. H.: This name Joshua (?) Hurt in the old John Bickley Bible record, a photostatic of which I have, is very hard to read as to the first name I make out as Joshua. The Hurt is plain. He was likely a brother of Mary Hurt Bickley, James Hurt (father of John Hurt, the Chaplain) and William Hurt (d. 1795) of Amelia County, Va.

343-1B51-1790---Joshua Hurt, Spartanburg County, Va.

(Page 53)

Joshua Hurt married a second time to Elizabeth Pebbleworth and had four children by her. One of these four children was Col. Smith Hurt born in Montgomery County, Kentucky in 1826. Joshua Hurt moved his family to Montgomery County, Ky. (Note by O. H.: I do not know who was the father of this Joshua Hurt but the names of his children make me believe that he was a descendant of William Hurt, the elder (d. 1749). He may have been a brother (a younger brother ) of Joel, John, Joseph and William Hurt who are living in Spartanburg County, S. C. in the first part of the 1800s. See numbers 216, 313, 341 and 642.

345-10A119-1789---Judith Hurt, Prince Edward County, Va.

Judith Hurt was mentioned as a daughter in the will of Abraham Forrest dated 5-2-1789 and recorded in Nottoway County, Va. in Will Book 1, Page 98. She was the wife of Benjamin Hurt who died in Prince Edward County, Va. in 1796. Benjamin Hurt was a son of William Hurt who died in Nottoway County in 1796. Judith was married a second time to Seth Cason in Prince Edward County in 1798. She had a sister, Sarah Hurt, who was probably the wife of William Hurt Jr., who was a brother of Benjamin Hurt.
