About Hezekiah Hyatt, Sr.


Hezakiah Hyatt purchased 75 acres, part of "Two Springs," one of the Perrin properties on Murley’s Branch [in Allegany County, Maryland] and with his wife Esther came West as the appointed Constable of Oldtown Hundred in 1769. At this time, Old Town Hundred, an area designated to support 100 families, extended from Old Town on the Potomac River, North to the Pennsylvania line. As the area became more populated this was divided in two, the southern portion being renamed Skipton Hundred and the northern portion, Murley’s Branch Hundred....It should be mentioned here that "Two Springs", a Perrin property, was a tract of nearly 300 acres and lay along the West side of Murley’s Branch from "Three Springs Head" of John Twigg, to Rush, MD. Among the shares of "Two Springs" from 1783 tax records are Hezakiah Hyatt 75 acres, Cornelius Willison 50 acres, his son Edward Willison 50 acres, and Joseph Lazear (Leasure) 50 acres. By this time two additions had been made, likely from a survey of one of the parts. These were in the names of Moses Robinette 50 acres, George Robinette Sr. and John Willison (the elder), son of Cornelius, 96½ acres.


Seth Hyatt moved from Maryland to North Carolina, and was named as a Tory in the court-martial of Col. McDowell. Seth Hyatt, Hezekiah Hyatt, and Edward Hyatt are listed among the Loyalists in Burke County indicted by the state (see above). Hezekiah Hyatt (born about 1740) was the son of Seth Hyatt.
