Re:Black and Native Relations
In Response To: Re:Black and Native Relations ()

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.
Eliza Brisbon was taxable on a horse in 1834.
Matilda Briston/ Brisby was taxable on a horse from 1845 to 1851.

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.
