was this foray south to the Kingsale area just an investment? A later tax list of Chowan County, NC mentions one Thomas Boon as “a Virginian”… So I assume it is this guy who gets the 1724 Virginia patent on the NC/VA border at Meherrin River. around 1720 a Thomas Boon in Chowan County is referred to as Thomas Boon “Junior”. If the North Carolina Thomas Boon is referenced in this 1713 deed… this is next to where Carolus Anderson gets his patent in 1726… he also had John Bryan as his power of attorney which seems to indicate he may have been living near the Maherrin River near Carolus Anderson? Here are some notes on 3 other of the “apparent” brothers: Joseph Boon d.1728 sons James Joseph Thomas Ratlif daughters Mary Elizabeth James Boon d.1733 wife Elizabeth sons none named in will daughters Mary m. From the above though, it seems plausible that Nicholas may be the culprit… per the NC patent of 1668- that Thomas Boon is likely born prior to 1648. B Boon is still alive and his death date is undetermined…. it is not impossible but very unlikely in my opinion. and below is another image of the 1705 sig mark to compare… From that I conjecture that at least William Boon may have been around NC as early as 1706???

without re-writing anything below, I am now of the opinion that there was never a Thomas Boon property record dating to 1668. The “earliest” record of a Boon that I can even remotely consider to be a progenitor is the Nich Boon of 1667 or so in Isle of Wight, VA.

I also cannot connect any history to that Nich Boon of IOW… So I am left with only questions concerning the early 1700s Boons of NC.

He still has the land on the “upper” Mathew Strickland patent and he is dealing 1713/1714. This is Mathew Strickland “Jr” and wife Anne: Matthew (M) STRICKLAND made his will in Isle of Wight County on July 14, 1730, and it was probated on October 25, 1730. it is on the VA and NC border at the Meherrin River. My guess is that he was still alive per the 1731 Pierce deed mentioned earlier. CHOWAN PRECINCT NORTH CAROLINA Chowan Co., NC Deed Book B #1 pg. William Boon to Carolus Anderson, May 13, 1728 , ” for and in Consideration of a full and Valuable Consideration in money to me in hand already paid by Carolus Anderson” 200 A part of 423 Ac tract granted to Boon Dec. I live in Florida which is a long drive to the Chowan records. he had sons Nicholas and William (who likely signed the will of Carolus) and he had a daughter Mary. B.” Boon of which I am still gathering data (proof). Boon who came from Isle of Wight was the son of the T. I am curious where the 1723 death date of “a” Thomas Boon ‘supposedly’ of Isle of Wight came from? This seems to prove that the Thomas Boon with wife Elizabeth Strickland witnessed the will of Joseph Boon in 1728. That seems to be the earliest “North Carolina” date that I can attribute to any of these Boons.

Ratcliff Boon seems to stay on the old Thomas Boon property on Horse Swamp (acquired from Mathew Strickland)… his son adds a few acres in 1771: Ratcliff Boon appears to die intestate about 1752 or so when he divides his land to his sons: 1715 -The Great Book, p. to James Millikin, 20 pds for 200 acres on NS Roanoke River, bounded by deed given from William Boon, on Beaverdown Branch, part of a patent of 600 acres granted William Boon on March 5, 1712. Strickland William Boon died intestate; he was married to Elizabeth ____. But his brothers begin dying off about this time (Joseph Boon died 1728… 3, 1720, on Meherrin River, “Beginning at a hickory tree upon the Great gutt thence running by line of marked trees adjoyning to Jos Boon to the river so down the river to the Country line and along the Country line to the river agin thence down the river to the Great Gutt begun upon and up to the beginning place” 20 £ 600 acres on the south side of Meherrin River, joining William Boon, meadow branch, John Pace and Braswell all houses, orchards, etc. Forster, J Pratt NC Ct 1730 All these SIMS boys and William Little lived near Occoneeche Neck. But then the intestate William Boon may have named sons the same? I bequeath to my Lawful wife my bed and furniture and my horse Tobe and a horse Cate. I am unable to “grab” an image of the 1728 will of Joseph Boon from the NC Archives site (the damn thing won’t load as an image… B.” Boon as a witness) Note where Rasberry (Rasbury) winds up with a patent in 1713… I am suspect that a Thomas Boon who obtained land in NC in 1668 would still be alive and kicking in 1728… B.” Boon as the other documents above signed the will of Joseph Boon in 1728 ( I would lean to the idea it was a brother). ===================================== A hat tip to Forrest King… King offers some interesting snippets of info concerning one Nicholas Boon of Isle of Wight in his piece on Mathew Strickland. “Descendants of Mathew Strickland (1648-1696) Through Four Generations,” North Carolina Genealogical Journal, Vol.

the one on the 1721 Chowan list is Thomas “A” Boone (remember that the IOW Thomas had a “mark” of a capital T with a B on the stem. even if a bit younger she would be up to dying also about this time… I have gone to great pains in another Page on William Browne being the son of John Browne (Indian Trader of Nansemond). 9, 1724., Part of a patent for 600 AC granted William Bennett, dated 1723-land on S/S Meherrin River adj.

Item: I give unto my sister Martha Bayley a hifer and calf …….. Since a son of Joseph Boon (Thomas) is a devisee in the will, I don’t think he could also be a witness.

The William Boon who signed Carolus’s will could sign his name.

But the fact that he left property to him could show a relationship. So this appears to be the reason some folks think the Thomas Boon of Virginia was the progenitor of the NC Boons… Especially when I think I have proved that Thomas Boon was still kicking when he signed the Will of Joseph Boon in 1728.

and I am unsure of another so-called proof that William Boon and William Browne were brothers-in-law.
