Population. The number of Nottaway, exclusive of those last mentioned, was estimated by Mooney (1928) at 1,500 in the year 1600. In 1709 Lawson reported one town with 30 fighting men, but in 1827 Byrd estimated that there were 300 Nottaway in Virginia. In 1825, 47 were reported. The band that made its appearance on the frontiers of South Carolina was said to number about 300

Reference: The Historical News, State of North Carolina Stokes, Surry, Wilkes and Yadkin Counties November 2007 pp.7 & 8. "The meaning of the word Yadkin, derived from Yatiken, Yattkin, a Siouan Indian word, is unknown." "At the same place an Indian burial mound was discovered in 1957 while work was under way on a new U.S. Highway 421. Nineteen skeletons were removed by Stanley South,of the North Carolina Department of Archives and History, who identified them as Eastern Souix who were buried between 1550 and 1600." "Three major language families were represented in North Carolina: Iroquoian, Siouan, and Algonquian....Located primarily in the piedmont area, or central portion, of the state were the Siouan tribes: the Cape Fear, Catawba, Cheraw, Eno, Keyauwee, Occaneechi, Saponi, Shakori, Sissipahaw, Suraree, Tutelo, Waccamaw, Wateree, Waxhaw, and Woccon." " ...the Catawba as representative of the Siouan-speakers and the piedmont tribes..." "The Catawba was one of the Siouan-speaking tribes of the piedmont area of the Carolinas at the time of the first European contact...What is known, is based largely on the writings of John Lawson, who explored the peidmont territory and visited the Catawba in 1701." "The Catawba Nation was actually a military alliance of several Siouan tribes and remnants of tribes and bands decimated by war and disease who joined the Catawba...Virginians called them the Ushery...After the Yamasee War they became known as the Catawba, which means "cut off", apparently referring to their being cut off from other Siouan tribes. Their name for themselves was I Ye Ye, "people," or Nieye, "real people." At the time of contact, there were approximately 6,000 Catawbas, equal in size to the Tuscaroras. The only tribe larger than these two groups was the Cherokee

1600s ? Boston, Lincoln and East Kriby, Mass -
Misc. Note -
By MICHAEL WADE - SURNAMES: WADE, SKEPPER / SKIPPER My immediate interest is in the name WADE which I have tracked as follows: Nicholas b. 1616 in Denver Norfolk and emigrated to Massachusetts. His father Thomas b. 22/9/1596 in Boston, Lincoln who may also have emigrated. I am a direct line from them so any assistance or advice in how I can further research them would be most welcome. I also have ties to the SKEPPER or SKIPPER name from Boston, Lincoln and East Kriby, Lincoln around the same time or earlier. NOTE My guess is they were all part of the Pilgrim, or Puritan, migration to Massachusetts

1600s NC, SC, and Tenn -
The Skipper family of Tennessee is descended from several different Native American tribes. According to what has been written by researchers on our family the Skippers began intermarrying with Native Americans not long after arriving in the new world in the 1600's. They continued to intermarry and / or live among Native people until around 1832 when Arthur Skipper left the "Indian Frontier on the NC / SC border and moved to Tennessee. According to those associated with the Tuscarora, Nottoway, and Waccamaw tribes the Skippers were either part of the leadership of those tribes or had a strong presence in each one. by andrew skipper

1612 -
Ellen More Baptism 24 May 1612, Shipton, Shropshire, England. Marriage Not married. Death Sometime the first winter at Plymouth. Children No children. Biographical Summary Ellen More, and her three siblings Richard, Jasper, and Mary, were baptized in Shipton, Shropshire, England. Their mother was Katherine More, who at the time was married to her cousin Samuel More in a pre-arranged marriage that was not working out well. The father of the More children was either her husband Samuel More, or it was Jacob Blakeway with whom she was having an extramarital affair. When the extramarital affair was discovered, a divorce proceeding ensured. Katherine lost the custody battle for her children, so Samuel shipped the children off to America.
Richard (age 6) and Mary More (age 4) were put to the William Brewster household;
Jasper (age 7) was placed in the John Carver family; and
Ellen (age 8) was placed in Edward Winslow's family.
All the More children, except for Richard, died the first winter at Plymouth

1614 England -
Richard More Baptism 13 November 1614, Shipton, Shropshire, England. Marriage Christian Hunt(er), 20 October 1636, Plymouth. Mrs. Jane Crumpton, after 1675, Salem. Death Between 19 March 1693/4 and 20 April 1696, Salem.
Children
1. Samuel
2. Thomas
3. Caleb
4. Joshua
5. Richard
6. Susanna
7. Christian.
Biographical Summary Richard More had one of the most bizarre and interesting lives of any of the Mayflower passengers.
He was baptized in 1614 in Shipton, Shropshire, England, to Katherine More.
Researchers have traced Katherine More's ancestry back to royalty, making Richard More and his siblings the only Mayflower passengers to have a documented royal ancestry.
His father was either Katherine's husband Samuel More, or it was Jacob Blakeway, with whom she was having an extramarital affair.
When the affair was discovered, Samuel questions whether the children were his (since they seemed to look more like Blakeway).
Divorce proceedings were begun, and Samuel More would eventually receive custody of the children.
He paid to have his children shipped off to America with some "honest and religious people", where they could avoid the "great blots and blemishes" that would fall on them if they remained in England.
Richard More and sister Mary ended up in the household of Elder William Brewster;
older sister Ellen went to the Edward Winslow family,
older brother Jasper went to the John Carver family.
Richard's three siblings all died the first winter:
Jasper died even before the Pilgrims were finished exploring Cape Cod.
Richard More was still living with the Brewsters in 1627, and married Christian Hunter in 1636 in Plymouth, and moved very shortly thereafter to Salem.
Richard More became a seaman and ship captain, and made trips to England, Nova Scotia, West Indies, Manhattan, and Virginia.
In February and March 1642/3, he joined the church at Salem and had two children baptized there; all the rest of his children would be baptized there as well, through his last child Christian, baptized in 1652.
His wife Christian died on 18 March 1676, at the age of 60.
Richard More then married to Mrs. Jane Crumpton; she died in October 1686 at Salem, aged 55. In 1688, the Salem Church recorded: "Old Captain More having been for many years under suspicion and common fame of lasciviousness, and some degree at least of inconstancy ... but for want of proof we could go no further. He was at last left to himself so far as that he was convicted before justices of peace by three witnesses of gross unchastity with another man's wife and was censured by them." Richard More died sometime between 1693 and 1696 at Salem, living just long enough to have witnessed the Salem Witchcraft paranoia of 1692.

The alleged tradition which brings the Catawba from the north, as refugees from the French and their Indian allies about the year 1660, does not agree in any of its main points with the known facts of history, and, if genuine at all, refers rather to some local incident than to a tribal movement.

The settlements of Virginia extended from the Potomac to the Chowan, besides the isolated Accomac. There were 50 Parishes. The plantations lay dispersed along the banks and rivers and creeks, those on the James stretching above a hundred miles into the interior. Each parish extended many miles in length along the river's side, but in breadth ran back only a mile. This was the average breadth of the plantations, their length varying from half a mile to 3 miles or more. The 50 parishes comprehending an area supposed to be equal to one half of England, it was inevitable that many of the inhabitants lived very remote from the parish church.

Of these part had perished from disease, intemperance, famine, and war; the rest had been driven back into the wilderness beyond the frontier.

1670 Catawba Indians -
The first notice of the Catawba seems to be that of Vandera in 1579, who calls them Issa in his narrative of Pardo's expedition. Nearly a century later, in 1670, they are mentioned as Ushery by Lederer, who claims to have visited them, but this is doubtful. Lawson, who passed through their territory in 1701, speaks of them as a " powerful nation" and states that their villages were very thick. He calls the two divisions, which were living a short distance apart, by different names, one the Kadapau and the other the Esaw, unaware of the fact that the two were synonymies. From all accounts they were formerly the most populous and most important tribe in the Carolinas, excepting the Cherokee. Virginia traders were already among them at the time of Lawson's visit. Adair, 75 years later, says that one of the ancient cleared fields of the tribe extended 7 miles, besides which they had several smaller village sites.

In 1672, Lederer, from Indian information, located them in the same general region, or possibly somewhat farther north east, " where the mountains bend to the west," and says that this portion of the main ridge was called " Sualy mountain " from the tribe. This agrees with Cherokee tradition.
