Re: Hurst/Hunt FPOC VA
In Response To: Re: Hurst/Hunt FPOC VA ()

Hi, Tsonga. I followed this thread to Paul Heinegg's website, and came across the Hurst listing there:

HURST FAMILY

The Hurst family may have descended from Richard Hurst, an eight-month-old "Mulatto" valued at 4 pounds on 2 September 1724 when he was listed in the inventory of the York County estate of Joseph Walker, Esq. [DOW 16, pt. 2, 329]. Members of the Hurst family were

1 i. Faithy, born about 1757.

ii. Angey, born say 1762, married Burwell Artis, 21 August 1783 Southampton County bond.

iii. Robert, born say 1765, taxable in St. Luke's Parish, Southampton County, from 1790 to 1805: taxable on 2 horses in 1790, called a "free Negro" in 1801, a "FN" in 1803 and 1804, a "M" taxable with Henry Hix (Hicks) in 1805 [Personal Property Tax List 1782-92, frame 762; 1792-1806, frames 55, 82, 163, 192, 517, 555, 624, 694, 808].

iv. Mima, head of a Southampton County household of 9 "other free" and a slave in 1810 [VA:54].

v. Hannah, a "M" taxable on a horse in Southampton County in 1806, 1807 and 1809, taxable on 2 free males and 2 horses in 1810 [Personal Property Tax List 1792-1806, frame 844; 1807-21, frames 73, 170]. She was head of a Southampton County household of 4 "other free" in 1810 [VA:75].

vi. Isabel, born about 1780, registered in Southampton County on 30 July 1810: age 30, Blk., 5 feet 3 inches, free born. She registered again on 12 March 1828 [Register of Free Negroes 1794-1832, nos. 733, 1694].

viii. Drury, born about 1786, registered in Southampton County on 28 July 1810: age 24, 5 feet 11 inches, Blk., free born [Register of Free Negroes 1794-1832, nos. 705, 1690]. He was head of a Southampton County household of 2 "other free" in 1810 [VA:54].

1. Faithy Hurst, born about 1757, was a "Mulatto" taxable in St. Luke's Parish, Southampton County, from 1802 to 1804: taxable on a free male tithable, a slave 12-16 and a horse in 1802; on 2 free males, a slave 12-16, and 2 horses in [Personal Property Tax List 1792-1806, frames 554, 623, 693]. She registered in Southampton County on 28 July 1810: age 53, blk., 5 feet 4-3/4 inches high, free born. She registered again on 12 March 1828: age 71, Black, 5 feet 4-1/2 inches high, born free. She emancipated (her husband?) London Williams by deed acknowledged in Southampton County court on 21 April 1806 [Minutes 1804-7, 158]. He registered in Southampton County on 15 September 1806: age 50, Blk., 5 feet 6-1/4 inches high, emancipated by Faithy Hurst deed [Register of Free Negroes 1794-1832, nos. 398, 707, 1691]. They may have been the parents of

i. Solomon, born about 1781, required to post bond on 19 March 1804 for maintenance of an illegitimate child he had by Amey Artis [Minutes 1803-4, unpaged]. He registered in Southampton County on 23 May 1805: age 35, 6 feet 1 inch high, blk., born free. He registered again on 24 May 1817: age 35, 6 feet 1-1/2 inches, blk., free born [Register of Free Negroes 1794-1832, nos. 325, 1090]. He was head of a Southampton County household of 6 "other free" in 1810, and there were two other Solomon Hursts who were heads of Southampton County households with 3 "other free" in 1810 [VA:54, 70, 74]. He was listed with his wife Milly in 1812 and 1814 [Personal Property Tax List 1807-21, frames 291, 419].

Of course, I was looking for Lytle and they don't match [so far]! :( I hope you don't mind me posting the information here since I found it in looking for the Lytles.
