WEAVER FAMILY-- East Indian ancestry

The Weaver family descends from Richard Weaver, born about 1675, an East Indian who lived in Lancaster County, Virginia. He is first mentioned in the court records and called an "East Indian" on 11 April 1711 when he sued the estate of Andrew Jackson for 400 pounds of tobacco due by bill. He was probably the brother of William and John Weaver, "East Indy Indians," who sued Thomas Pinkard for their freedom on 13 August 1707 [Orders 1696-1713, 176, 183, 262].
Richard Weaver witnessed the Lancaster County will of Edward NICKEN in 1735. He was excused by the Lancaster County court from paying taxes in 1739 due to his old age.
Their descendants spread to Norfolk County, to Hertford County (North Carolina) and on to the Weaver Settlement in Indiana. There are photos of family members in the Weaver settlement on my site.
