You can trace the Brisbon/ Brisby family through the personal property tax lists of King William County. (The Library of Virginia will send a copy to the nearest public library to you which has a microfilm reader--usually your county library). I was not researching the name when I read the microfilm, but I did note the following:
Ned Brisbon was a "Mulatto" taxable on his own tithe and a horse from 1804 to 1817.
Note that there is a separate list for people living in the Pamunkey town (since they were not taxable on their persons) and Ned was not listed there. Perhaps the family joined the tribe later.
