In 1716, Benjamin deeded land on Hawkins Branch (Washington Co.) into Chapel Swamp, now Tyrell Co. NC.
Albemarle County was formed in 1664 but by 1670 part of it had been split into Chowan and Perquimans Precincts. Tyrrell County was formed in 1729 from Chowan, Bertie and other parts of the Albemarle Sound region. See Map of the North Carolina Counties in 1740.
