Bertie Deed B-198
William Cain (Bertie Precinct will 1733) named in his will a son William
and devised to him 290 acres purchased of William Whitehead. William Cain
had purchased this land on 6 Nov. 1726 which was part of a patent of 490
acres 16 Aug 1720 to Whitehead and adjoined the lands of Thomas Bryant,
sd Whitehead and William Bennett

#2452 p.224 William Whitehead 2 Apr 1730 640 ac on south side Morattock
river Bertie Precinct adj Westerly side of Deep Creek and a small branch.
Edgecombe Deed 1-243 shows William Cane, the eldest son of William Cane
had inherited his land and sold it to Capt. Thomas Bryant on 26 Aug 1737
who on 10 May 1738 was then selling it to John ONeal for 640 ac described
as on the fork between Fishing Creek and Deep Creek on the north side
Tarr River. See p.C-85 and p.C-87 for maps showing the locations of
Urahaw Swamp and also Fishing Creek and Deep Creek. It appears to me
William Cain's land on Fishing Creek could be in present day Halifax Co.
in the extreme SE corner.
Edgecombe Co. was formed from Bertie 1741 and our Cains seem to be in
Edgecombe then. Halifax was formed 1758 from Edgecombe and because the
town of Halifax then fell in Halifax County along with the old court
house, all the early Edgecombe deed books remained in Halifax and are
today known as Halifax deed books. But the Halifax deeds made and
recorded before Halifax Co. was formed are Edgecombe Co. deeds and are
thus designated in this compilation, though anyone wishing to check the
original deed must check the Halifax deed books.
