Stith Slave Transactions

Hi All, just recently I received some very valuable information from

Wayne Stith concerning the transfer of slaves from members of the Stith

families to individuals that I will later list. But first, I want to

address the reason for my asking about the give name Annaka. I saw it

listed as the name of one of the Stith slaves. Annaka ,Sanco and

Ferdinando stood out enough for me to wonder if they were of some race

other than African. According to the responses that I received the name

could be anything from Ann aka(also known as) to Norweigan. So now I am

wondering about Sanco. All of this wondering is in keeping with the

Melungeon theory of "Portuguese "settles predating the settlers of

Jamestown and other colonies. Are Sanco,Ferdinando and Annaka

Portuguese?

&nbsp

Well here is the list of individuals who were involved in slave

transactions with the Stith families. Keep in mind that many of the

slaves were given as gifts to other Stith familiy members. I will not

list the Stith names.

Robert BOLLING,Prince George Co; Thomas COCKE,Surry Co.;Wm.

&nbsp

These transactions took place from the 1700s to the middle 1800s. I have the names of the slaves involved, if anyone is interested.

Thanks for your time,

Linda

Send any flames to me personally, not to the list. Thanks<g>

"David Meade, some time before his marriage, made an aquaintance with the family of Sir Richard Everard, who resided at Edenton, North Carolina, the then seat of government of North Carolina, wherean attachment, perfectly romantic, was mutually formed between my father and the eldest daughter of Sir Richard Everard. It so happened that Sir Richard and his family were about to return to England(He relinquished the government on Feb.25,1731) and his vessel, in which they were to take passage, was lying in Hampton Roads or Nansemond River. Andrew Meade`s house being the nearest to the place of embarkation, the baronet and his family lodged there. Contrary winds and other contingences detained them there several days, during which time David Meade became enmoured of Susanna, daughter of Sir Richard, and in ardour of his attachment resolved to accompany her to England. Andrew Meade, distressed at the idea of being separated from his only son, by his entreaties prevailed upon Sir Richard to allow the couple to be married at once. Immediately after the wedding, the baronet and the rest of his family sailed for England, leaving Susanna with her enraptured husband."

(1) " David Meade had two daughters and five sons. His daughters were Anne, who married Richard Randolph, of Curles, and Mary, who married Colonel Walker, each of them leaving many children, who are scattered over the land. The sons were David Meade, who inherited the estate in Nansemond, married a Miss Waters, of Williamsburg, then settled in Macox, in Prince George, then removed to Kentucky, devoting his time and fortune to the improvement of the seats on which he lived, and which were celebrated all over Virginia and Kentucky. The others were R.K. Meade, aid to General Washington, and Everard Meade, aid to General Lincoln and afterward raised to the rank of General. Andrew Meade, who settled in Brunswick, and John, who died in his youth. The three elder children were sent to England for their education, and placed under the care of Dr. Thackery, the principal of Harrow School, and Archdeacon of Surrey."
