I believe Capt Samuel Dalling of Edenton must have been a different man than Capt Samuel Dalling of Portsmouth, NH and Northampton Co, NC.

Title: Transcription of the suit of George and Richard Rome vs. Mary Dalling, Exrx. of Samuel Dalling, debt, heard in Chowan County Court of PandQS at June term 1788. [June.]
Years: [1788]
Creator: Great Britain. Treasury
Verdict for the defendant though plaintiff had urged the articles of the definitive treaty of peace. [Copy on paper watermarked 1793. Folio page endorsed.]

Since Edenton was in Chowan Co, this must have been the Samuel Dalling of Edenton. He was dead by June of 1788. Since Mary was his exrx, he must have left a will somewhere - maybe England?

Samuel Dalling who bought land in the Oconeechee Neck of what's now called Northampton Co was definitely the one who traces back to Portsmouth, NH where he can be proven as a son of Capt Thomas Dalling and wife Elizabeth Pittam (some say Pitman).

He bought a tract of land from John Reynolds soon after this 1741 record and was referred to as "of Northampton Co" later.

This date would have been 15 Feb 1743 as we think of it. The year didn't changed until March 25 by the old Julian calendar. Samuel was still living in Portsmouth on 19 June 1742 when his daughter Mary was born.

A son Thomas Dalling was born to Samuel Dalling and Mary, probably in the 1740's, but I haven't found a record for his birth date. Perhaps the family was living in NC at the time of his birth.

Some time prior to 1765, Samuel Dalling's first wife Mary died and he married Mehitable Peavey, sister of Sarah Peavey who had married Samuel's brother Stacey Dalling. Stacey Dalling had died prior to 1765.

On 31 Oct 1765 , Mary Stuart , widow; Sarah Dalling, widow; Samuel Dalling, mariner, and Mehitable, his wife; all of Portsmouth, conveyed to John Peavey , carpenter , the premises on Pickering’s Neck where the grantee now lives, formally of William Peavey, father of the grantors. (NH Colonial Deeds, vol 91, p 417)

Capt. Samuel Dalling's tombstone can be found at the Old North Burying Ground in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The inscription reads:

In memory of. Capt. Samuel Dalling who died October 15th 1788 aged 77 years. Firm to his word in every action just, The Man still lives tho' moulder'd into dust.

Samuel Dalling of Chowan had died before June 1788, at least several months before Capt Samuel Dalling of Portsmouth died on 15 Oct 1788. The old Julian calendar would have no effect on these dates. Also, Capt Samuel Dalling who left the records in Northampton Co was living in Portsmouth, NH in 1771, not Edenton. These have to be two entirely different Samuel Dallings.
