WILLIAM AND MARY SYMONS, THOUGHT TO LIVE IN LYNN, MASSACHUSETTS, PRIOR TO
MOVING BY 1651 TO EAST HAMPTON IN NEW YORK COLONY, WERE THE PARENTS OF
THOMAS AND JEREMIAH SYMONS, MEMBERS OF THE PASQUOTANK MONTHLY MEETING IN
NORTH CAROLINA. EAST HAMPTON'S TOWN RECORDS INDICATE THAT GOODWIFE SIMONS
WAS A WITNESS IN THE 1657 CASE OF JOSHUA GARLICK'S WIFE WHO WAS ACCUSED OF
WITCHCRAFT. TESTIMONY GIVEN SUGGGESTS THAT "GOODY" SIMONS WAS GUILTY OF
USING HOME REMEDIES PROVIDED BY "GOODY" GARLICK, NOT ONLY FOR HERSELF BUT TO
CURE THE AFFLICTIONS OF OTHERS.

A POWER-OF-ATTORNEY WAS EXECUTED BY WILLIAM SYMONS AND HIS SON, THOMAS, IN
1164 IN ISLE OF WIGHT IN NEW YORK COLONY (NOW GARDINER'S ISLAND, SUFFOLK
COUNTY, L.I. NEW YORK), TO JEREMIAH CONKLING OF EASTHAMPTON TO SELL HIS 12
ACRES OF LAND. IT WAS PROBABLY ABOUT THIS TIME THAT WILLIAM SYMONS REMOVED
WITH HIS FAMILY TO CARTERET PRECINCT, ALBEMARLE COUNTY (NOW PASQUOTANK
COUNTY) NC. IN A LETTER DATED OCT., 1684, TO DAVID GARDNER, ISLE OF WIGHT
IN NEW YORK COLONY, SIGNED BY THOMAS SYMONS OF LITTLE RIVER IN ALBERMARLE
CO, NC "YE SON OF WILLIAM SYMONS, DECEASED", THOMAS REQUESTED THAT HIS LAND
AT EAST HAMPTON BE SOLD(THE TWO SIX-ACRE PLOTS WHICH HIS FATHER HAD
AUTHORIZED JEREMIAH CONKLING TO SELL IN 1664). IN A POSTSCRIPT HE ASKED TO
BE REMEMBERED "TO MY UNCLE FIFTHIAN AND OTHER KINDRED". AGAIN IN AUGUST OR
OCTOBER 1685, THOMAS SYMONS WRITES TO DAVID GARDNER AUTHORIZING THE SALE OF
HIS LAND AT EAST HAMPTON, AND REPORTS "MY FATHER AND MOTHER ARE BOTH DEAD".
A DEED RECORDED IN FEBRUARY, 1685 SHOWS THAT DAVID GARDINER OF ISLE OF WIGHT
SOLD FOR THE SUME OF 14 CURRENT MONEY OF BOSTON, THE ABOVE NAMED PROPERTY TO
JEREMIAH CONKLING JR. IT IS PROBABLE THAT JEREMIAH CONKLING WAS RELATED TO
THE SYMONS FAMILY (PERHAPS THE FATHER OR BROTHER OF THOMAS SYMON'S MOTHER,
MARY ALTHOUGH THIS CANNOT BE CONFIRMED.
