Before spending a lot of time on Sarah, who I can't find , how does William Hunt of Charles City County VA with a wife Tabitha (unknown) sound? They had land in Nottoway River in Surrey County. Have a look at this FGS and see if we are in the ballpark.We also need to contact Garol Garret who has worked on this.I hope she hasan't changed her ID.

HUSBAND NOTES: William HUNT Capt./Major
General: This William Hunt is not to be confused with the line of William Hunt/Judith
(Burton?).(See RIN #835) See Mrs. Gheesling's mss. "Miscellaneous Records of
HUNT/Va. Also: William Hunt of Sussex/Surry by Mrs. Gheesling. From 1688 through
1694, Mr. William Hunt is found in court records of Charles City. In 1691 Mr.
William Hunt repatented 215 acres in James City Co. that his father, William
Hunt, had purchased from Rice Hoe in 1656. As Captain William Hunt, he patented
159 acres in Charles City Co. in 1691. In 1692, Captain William Hunt's house
was designated as a meeting house to settle the bounds of James City Co. &
Charles City Co. In Oct. 1701, as Captain Wm. Hunt, he patented 4,342 acres in
Charles City Co. on both sides of the Nottoway River. This land was below the
James River and when taxed and when sold by his children it was in Surry Co. On
Dec. 19, 1711, as Major William Hunt of Charles City Co., he patented 140 acres
in Surry Co., and, on 1 Apr. 1714 William Hunt & Tabitha, his wife, of Charles
City Co., sold land on the Nottoway River in Surry Co. William Hunt made and
dated his will on 14 May 1714 Charles City Co. It cannot now be found; however,
it was referred to in a deed in 1744 when John Macon, who married his daughter,
Ann, and their son, Gedion Macon, sold 200 acres in Surry Co. that was left to
Ann by her father, William Hunt in his will. The land was then listed as in
Albemarle Parish, North side of Nottoway River, Surry Co. If this is s/o Wm.
"the Baconite", then his father was 51 years old when he was born--? And---this
Wm. did not marry until age 44??? "He was commissioned Captain of the Charles
City County militia between 20 Oct 1691 and 29 April 1692. He was a justice
(of the quorum) by 1699 and achieved the rank of Major about 1705".

General: According to Tn. Cousins, by Worth S. Ray, pg. 643, and FGS of Mrs. Ruby
Catherine Baker Slay, 1622 54th St., Sacramento, Ca. 95819, published in
Yalobusha Pioneer, Vol. IV, #4, p. 135, her name was Edloe. Michael W. Berry in
his "The Hunt Family" published in the Virginia Genealogist, states that this
cannot be proven, "various published genealogies have stated that she was a
Minge or an Edloe.....It is possible that she was Tabitha (Underwood) Bowler,
widow of Maj. Thomas Bowler of Rappahannock whose will was proved 2 July 1679.
Tabitha (Underwood) Bowler was the half-sister of John Edloe." She died prior
to June 1717 when her inventory was presented in Charles City County Court.

General: Buried close to the grave of William Hunt I at Batchelor's Point, as "William
Hunt, aged 13". Tombstone states that he was the "Eldest son of William Hunt"
and was "aged 11 yeares 8 months and 28 days".

General: Was living when his father died. and signed his inventory with his brother,
George Hunt. Died by 1716 when the following was dated: "Since the death of
John Hunt, Su'a Hunt, Admx., hath possessed herself of that part that was
William Hunt's deceased, together with John Hunt's estate." See Gheesling, pg.
35/36; also, "The Hunt Family" by Michael W. Berry. The estate records were
proved by John Hunt's sisters, Mary Minge, Ann Hunt, Martha Edloe and by Henry
Blanks. "John Hunt, along with his brother George Hunt, his uncle John Hunt and
his first cousin Turner Hunt(t) signed the 1710 'Petition of Charles City
County' requesting that the part of James City County above the Chickahominy
River be added to Charles City County" (from The Hunt Family by Michael West
Berry, (pg. 122 in the Virginia Genealogist).

General: In 1710 Eleanor (Wyche) & Francis Mayberry deeded George Hunt 100 acres on the
Nottoway River in Surry Co. This seems to be the "home plantation" left Eleanor
by her father, Henry Wyche in his will of 1712/14. See Gheesling, pg. 36.
George dated his will 2 November 1725. It was recorded 2 Feb. 1725/26 and did
not list a wife or designate any children or grandchildren, but did will land to
sons of Valentine Minge, dec'd. George Hunt also signed the 1710 "Petition"
along with his brother John Hunt, uncle John Hunt and first cousin, Turner
Hunt(t). He served as justice of the peace of CCC in 1714. A George Hunt
married Elizabeth Poindexter on 24 Feb. 1709/10 in St. Peter's Parish, New Kent
County, but if this marriage was for this George Hunt, Elizabeth (Poindexter)
Hunt was dead by 2 Nov. 1725, when George Hunt signed his will. This document
indicates neither wife nor children. George Hunt's uncle, John Hunt and Samuel
Harwood, Jr., were named as executors.

General: Mary married Robert Minge (1) and Wm. Allin (Allen) (2), & Field Jefferson
(3rd). See Tyler's Quarterly, Vol.V, for account of Mary's third marriage to
Field Jefferson, Lunenburg Co., Va. Prenuptial agreement executed 31 Oct. 1753.
This marriage agreement was witnessed by George Baskerville, Hutchins Burton &
Rubin Morgin. George Baskerville m. Martha Minge and Hutchins Burton m. Tabitha
Minge, daughters of Mary Hunt Minge Allen Jefferson.

General: Ann Hunt's marriage to John Macon is confirmed by a deed recorded in Surry Co,
dated April l, 1714. [Ann and John Macon's son, Gideon Macon moved to Granville
Co., N. C. and married Priscilla Jones. Their first child (of Gideon & Pricilla
(Jones) Hunt, was Ann Hunt Macon, who married Capt. John Alston.] Berry
states: "Ann Hunt was unmarried on 8 Nov. 1717 when Jones Williams of Surry
County signed his will leaving 'a horse had of John Stevens to my kinswoman Ann
Hunt, and all jewels, gold, silver, goods and chattels.' "Williams named Ann's
brother George Hunt as executor and the will was witnessed by Ann Hunt's future
husband, John Macon, and by her brother-in-law, Matthew Edloe. Shortly after
this date, Ann Hunt married John Macon of St. Peter's Parish, New Kent County,
son of Capt. Gideon Macon. Ann (Hunt) Macon died in St. Peter's Parish on 15
Feb. 1734/5." Matthew West Berry also gives Henry Macon as a possible child of
John and Ann Hunt Macon, but is uncertain.
