by Margaret M. Hofmann

3340 pg 292 RICHARD ROSS 19 Jan 1715/16
630 acres in Chowan Precinct on ye S. side of the Morattock River, joining
the mouth and side of Gum Samp Branch to the head thereof, the head of Rosses
Creek and the sd. river
Wit: Chas.Eden, Nath. Chevin, T. Knight, Chris.Gale, Fran. Foster
(there are 5 places called Gum Branch and 9 called Gum Swamp in present day
NC. Morattock River? could be Roanoke River which was called Morattico on a
1657map and Noratake on a 1671map and finally Roanoke by 1733. Found some
1720's references to this river in Bertie co, NC deeds. Bertie Co was formed
from Chowan in 1722. map at
http://www.libs.uga.edu/darchive/hargrett/maps/1676s6.jpg
Some later deeds refer to the south side of Morattock River and Connoconary
Creek-
>From The North Carolina Gazeteer  by William S. Powell  1978
Conoconnara Swamp rises in central Halifax County and flows ne into Roanoke
River. It appears as Connoconary Creek on the Collet map of 1770. The 2,500
acre plantation of Thomas Pollack, Sr., Conoconnara was located here in 1721.
Before the American Revolution a Church of England stood near the banks of
this stream.
Of course I realize that the Roanoke River is a long one.)
