It looks like from the "Info" link for Chuckatuck/Nansemond that "specific meetings" include Levy Neck which is also known as Pagan Creek. I added the category Levy Neck, Isle of Wight, Virginia but I don't know if that is correct. 

Here's some specific data on at least one member's participation, who appearance in certain lists supports that Levy Neck was also known as Pagan Creek:

Some Levy Neck, Isle of Wight, Virginia meeting house membership is presumptively identified in the below William and Mary citation as well as the list of known Quakers from the Boddie text, which may overlap with Chuckatuck or totally supplant, but the deed transaction date and the marriage event data upon which the longer Quaker list appears to have been generated both contain Thomas Tooke.

Be it known unto all men by these presents that I, William Bressie of ye Upper parrish of ye Isle of Wight County in Virginia, planter, with Susannah my wife have given granted enfeoffed from us or heires an doe by these presents for evermore give and grant and enfeofe unto William Yarrett, John Grove, Francis Wrenn, Edward Jones, Thomas Tooke, and Henry Wigge and the rest of the sect of God frequently called Quakers, one house built by ye said people in ye place called ye Levy Neck Ould fields neare the creeke side to worship and serve the living God, in spirit and truth with ground sufficient for a Graveyard and what more may be thought fit. . . . . . This acknowledged in open Court by Mr William Bressie and his wife to be their Act and Deed and Ordered to be Recorded 9 Feb 1679. . .[1]

From Boddie's treatment, it is unclear what relationship existed between the Levy Neck Meeting House and the Chuckatuck or Cypress Creek District in Isle of Wight (near the Nansemond County line) Society of Friends meetings:

The Southern Historical Association had published the records of the Quaker meetings at Chuckatuck. . . 6th day, 10th month, 1679:[2]

  1. Thomas Jordan, [who on this date married]:
  2. Elizabeth Burgh
  3. Edmond Godwin
  4. Thomas Godwin, Justice, member, House of Burgesses
  5. Elizabeth Godwin
  6. Joseph Woory, Justice
  7. Elizabeth Woory
  8. Barnaby Kearney, Justice, member, House of Burgesses
  9. Thomas Taberer, member, House of Burgesses
  10. William Denson, member, House of Burgesses
  11. Thomas Tooke, member, House of Burgesses
  12. Thomas Jordan, member, House of Burgesses
  13. Richard Bennett, Governor

Thanks for the heads up. The category is misnamed in any case (wrong format) and we'll need to research this.
