Surry Co, Va & Frances Bennett of Isle of Wight Co, Va. She

Whig Militia Commanders' Enemies Lists of 1783
SOUTH CAROLINA LOYALISTS & REBELS
On 17 March 1783, about a year after the passage of the Estate Confiscation Act (No. 1153), the South Carolina Fifth General Assembly passed Ordinance No. 1189 entitled Disposing Of The Estates Of Certain Persons, Subjects And Adherents Of The British Government; And For Other Purposes Therein Mentioned.
According to this ordinance, the real and personal property of former citizens who had chosen to join the British were vested in the Commissioners of Forfeited Estates. It was a comprehensive act, but had no lists of names. The commanding officers of the State's militia regiments ware instructed, when asked by the commissioners, to make lists of those men who had joined the British. Men so identified had six months from the end of the legislative session to return to the State for trial. Ten (10) militia commanders made returns, resulting in a total of 689 names. These returns constitute the largest listing of Loyalists/Tories ever promulgated by the Whig Government of South Carolina.
The lists returned by the individual militia commanders are stored at the South Carolina State Archives in Columbia, under the title "Miscellaneous Papers on Forfeited Estates" at File Number S126170, Box 4. I reviewed these records in January 2002. Unfortunately, many of the original returns are now missing, including the return by Colonel Thomas Brandon of the Upper or Spartanburg Militia District. Even so, a number of years ago, the Archives personnel prepared a consolidated and alphabetized record of all the returns under the title "List of Enemies to the State - 1783."
A total of 689 names were provided in the returns, that were received from the ten (10) militia commanders as follows:

"Persons who settled in the General Neighborhood of Bennett's Creek & Rogers' Branch, Incl:
Leonard Langston, William Langston, John Langston, Robert Rogers, Ephriam Hunter, William Hunter, John Alston, Vann families, Lassiter families, Roundtree Families, etal, "
"The Vanns, Rogers, and Langston's according to old records lived near SARAM CHAPEL, an old landmark in what is now Gates County, which was at the head of SARAM CREEK in the BENNETT'S CREEK section. There were two Indian towns not far from this same settlement. One of these was near the mouth of Meherrin River which was occupied by the Meherrin Indians. In fact, Indians were all around them at that period and it was much later when the Indian lands were laid out lower down on the Morratuck or Roanoke, in the bounds of present Bertie County. Among the neighborhood of these families were the Ross family, the Odums, the Hayes, the Barnes, Jones & Williams, as well as the Alstons and the Daniels, with whom they were intimate and with which they probably intermarried then and later."
