About Edward Vann, Jr.

This Edward VANN, was on the Bertie NC List of Tithables for 1752 for two tithables. He acquired several tracts on Roquist and Cachie "in that part of Chowan called Bertie" which he left to his sons William, Cader, and King in his will of 1770, in which he also made provision for wife Mary (last name probably King), and daughters Sarah and Elizabeth. It was witnessed by William, Michael, and Charles KING [see below]. King VANN received the land on Cachie, Cader, the land next to the Indian reservation, and William the remainder charging him with the responsibility of looking after his mother and the younger children. (Bertie NC Will Book A. p130) Within the next 12 years,all the land had been sold, and the family had moved to Duplin in the part that would later become Sampson NC. In 1774 Cader sold his land " on Roquist joining the Indian Line". (Bertie NC Deed Book 4 p429) On Highway 17, 4 miles south of Windsor, near Roquist Creek, there is an historical marker: "Indian Woods Reservation - set up in 1717 for Tuscaroras remaining in N.C. after the War of 1712-1713. It was sold in 1828 In 1790 Cader was listed as head of household in Sampson County 1-0-1-0-0 or man and wife, no children and no slaves. King VANN was a minor when his father died. In 1782 he sold in two parts his 124 acres on Cachie: " King VANN of Duplin to


62 acres on Cachie Swamp, an estate of inheritance in fee simple....(Bertie NC Deed Book M p569-570). In 1788 he had bought from Felix Kenan 200 acres at Taylor's Bridge in Sampson (Sampson Co.,NC Deed Book 5 p429).

William VANN was one of two William VANNs on the Duplin Tax list of 1783 and the Sampson Tax List in 1784, but he was not head of a household in 1790, and from here out, it is hard to know which William VANN was the uncle and which was the nephew. Many of his descendants moved to Alabama and Florida, and on to California
