Footnotes

1.  In 1788, the year of his death, Cordall owned 1400 acres in Southampton County, Virginia and 694 acres in Northampton County, North Carolina.

2.  This is "Henry the Tory;" his father was John Norfleet of Nansemond.

3.  Hezekiah was the younger brother of John Norfleet of Nansemond; for many years he was the "Reader" at the Anglican Chapel near Cypress Swamp.

4.  He is the father of "Henry the Tory," as well as James and David Norfleet of Kentucky.

5.  Nathaniel (1760-1836) was one of the few Norfleets known to have served in the Revolutionary War; in 1797 he removed to Person County, North Carolina.

6.  This Abraham was the eldest son of Abraham Norfleet, Senior of Chowan; Abraham Sr. Had recently died in 1784.

7.  This Elisha was the son of John Norfleet (1699-1753) of Chowan County, North Carolina; Elisha never married and died circa 1798-99.

8.  Elisha (d. 1811) was the Clerk of the Chowan County Court and a successful merchant; he resided in Edenton Town for most of his life.

9.  Elizabeth was the widow of Jacob Norfleet, who had died in 1780.

10.  Son of Reuben Norfleet of Bertie; this James died in about 1791.

11.  This James is the son of Philissia Norfleet, the niece of the elder Marmaduke Norfleet (1700-1774) of Rich Square in Northampton County. This James Norfleet emigrated to Montgomery County, Tennessee in about the year 1806.

12.  This may be the same Marmaduke who is listed under Halifax County; I know that Marmaduke of Halifax owned land and had slaves located in Northampton County. The one white poll listed for Northampton is probably one of Marmaduke’s overseers.

13.  Father of Marmaduke Norfleet of Halifax.

14.  Major James Norfleet is not listed in the 1790 Federal Census for North Carolina; census records for the Middle Tennessee County of Davidson is no longer extant. However, court/land records from Davidson County indicate that he was residing in Davidson County as early as January 1790.
