Re: HONESTY: another unique black surname?

Hi HM. The Honesty family is on my website:
1. Elizabeth Honest, born say 1725, was a servant woman valued at 1 pound currency in the 24 January 1749/50 inventory of the Westmoreland County, Virginia estate of Presley Neale with (her children?) a "Malatto Boy" named John Honest, valued at 2 pounds, and a "Malatto Girl" named Jane Honest who was valued at 5 pounds [Records & Inventories 1746-52, 101b]. She was probably the ancestor of

i. Jane, born say 1745, a "mulattor girl" given by Margaret Neale to her daughter Jemima Neale "forever" by her 11 October 1753 Westmoreland County will, proved 27 May 1755 [Deeds & Wills 1753-6, 234].

2. Hannah Honesty, born say 1771, was head of a Fairfax County household of 5 "other free" in 1810 [VA:267]. She was the mother of
