I believe James Knott was born about 1721 (-1728) in Nansemond County, VA, but I need documentation to prove that. He died in Granville County, NC about 1781.

He had a son, David Knott, who was married to Mary Catharine Downey and lived in Granville Co, NC.

A couple of things to investigate, or at least rule out:

James Knott, born 1726 in Northumberland County, VA.

James Knott Jr, born 1721 in Isle of Wight, VA, with son David married to Catherine Downey.

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/2:2:S5M8-N56

This one is likely to be your ancestor. Still not a lot of actual documentation, but it's a starting place.
