About William Taptico, II, Chief of the Wicocomico Nation

King William Taptico- the last Tribal Chief before the English got 4400 acres of reservation land pf the Wicocomico's

William Taptico II was the last Tribal Chief of the last Tribal Chief of the Wicocomico Indians of Northumberland County. He died in 1719 and it appears the tribal land was turned over to Phillip Smith, based on a document William Taptico I supposedly signed about 1693.

When he died in 1719, the English did not appoint another Chief, the English in turn was able to take over the tribal land. The English law was, when a tribe vacated their land or the tribe no longer existed, the English could then patent the land. So when William died , the English took the land. William's wife, Elizabeth Taptico settled his estate and changed the family name to Tapp and moved to Spotslvania.
