Ethno-Historic Surnames on The Cheroenhaka (Nottoway) Indian Tribe, Southampton County Official Tribal Records – State/County/Land Tracts

 

State Records:

1808 Census = a census included in Nottoway trustees’ letter of 7/18/1808, in Executive Papers

[i.e., the papers received by Virginia governors since 1776; boxed chronologically]

                                    That Census listed 17 Nottoway Indians living on the Reservation.

Exec. Jnls. = Executive Journals of the Council of Colonial Virginia (pub. 1925)

J of H of B = Journal of the House of Burgesses (pub. 1915)

Leg. Pet. = Legislative Petitions; now microfilmed, county by county; dated ca. 1780-1865               

 

County Records

D = Deed Book      O = Order Book      M = Minute Book                  W = Will Book

 

POMBNBNOM = Person Of  Mixed Blood Not Being Negro Or Mulatto [i.e., Indian]

                  Law passed, 1833; certifications handled by county courts

Section 17, Chapter 107 of the Code of Virginia 1860

 

NOTE:  All county records are from Southampton Co. unless otherwise noted.  Southampton Co. branched off from Isle of Wight Co. in 1749, so records of the Nottoways before that date come from Isle of Wight Co.  Before the 1730s, the county dealing with Nottoways was Isle of White and Sussex Co. [Note: First ethno-history contact in Nottoway County in 1607/08 – Sussex County 1650 (see Bland papers) …WDB]

 

NOTE:  Where someone sold land before getting it (1837-38, 1840-41), they were selling the rights to an allotment before it had been surveyed and officially awarded to them.

 

NOTE: except for a few carefully noted places, all Land Tracts below are stated specifically in the records to be current or former Cheroenhaka (Nottoway) Indian Tribal land.

                  [Martha Stewart never received Indian land herself, but by 1883 had somehow acquired two Indian allotments to use as collateral on debts; acquisition needs checking. She seems to have been the widow of a later Alec Scholar/Stewart, also a non-allottee, and also mother of one of the George Stewarts in the county.  Nottoway land inheritance was matrilineal, either because the tribe had been matrilineal or (equally likely) the old colonial rule that status of children of non-married parents came from the mother.  Littleton Scholar’s descendants would therefore have been Nottoway-descended but ineligible to get tribal land and moneys when they were divided up, so that they would not appear in the later 19th century records mentioning the Tribe.]
