Liber M, Page 231 Enrolled at request of Samuel Farmer 25 Aug 1727: Indenture, 27 July 1727; Between Samuel SWERINGEN, planter, and Samuel Farmer, planter; for L25; part of a parcel formerly called SWERINGEN'S Expectation formerly taken up by SWERINGEN;bounded by the great swamp that falls into the north branch of the Patuzent; containing 100 acres now called Samuel's Forrest;/s/ Samuel SWEARINGEN ; wit. Ralph Crabb, John SWERINGEN (mark);ack. Samuel SWEARINGEN and Elizabeth his wife..

NC records show that Samuel purchased land from Joseph Lane in Berite Co. in May 1728. In 1733, Sam sold the land back to Lane and moved to Edgecombe Co. In July 1761, he received a Granville grant of 617 acres on Autry's Creek adjoining William Wooten and Benjamin Evans. On 22 Oct 1765, Samuel sold to Thomas Wallis 159 acres on the Creek at the mouth of Hurley's Branch adjoining John Corbet and Samuel Williams it being part of a deed he purchased from Lord Granville, 3 Nov 1761. On 21 June 1762 in Edgecombe, he sold to John Corbit 308 acres which were a part of Samuel's 600 acres, and also deeded to Samuel Williams (son-in-law) 100 acres on Autry's Creek adjoining said Samuel Swearingen Jr. , for love and affection. In 1764, he gave a gift of deed to James Cravey. By 1768, Sam was in Anson Co, NC where on 14 April 1772, the County Court recommended that Samuel, "poor, infirm, aged" be exempt from taxes.. In Colonial records his sons are named as Regulators (persons opposed to the crown). (Whyte)

The oppressions of the officers of the Crown were so great, and their exactions so heavy, that he, with many other citizens, arose in self defense, entered the court house, and expelled the officers. They then sent a letter to Governor Tryon, reciting the causes which led them to this action, and said the " no people have a right to be taxed but by consent of themselves or their delegates." he was also identified with the "Regulators," a body of men banded together to protect themselves in those rights which were soon after proclaimed in that immortal document--The Declaration of Independence."
