Petition for a new county out of Nansemond and Isle of Wight in 1784 (which didn't happen)... has quite a few names interesting to this family, including James' own and his brother's. It seems there may have been a number of petitioners who, having failed to form a county, moved (or completed a move already under way) south into North Carolina shortly after.
