Re: THomas Penel and Mart Penel of Bute Co, NC in 1770's

My 3rd great-grandfather Thomas Calvert/Colbert married Vashty Pinnell, daughter of John Pinnell (variant spellings) of Franklin Co., NC. Franklin was once part of Bute Co, which was once part of Granville Co. John owned land on Little Shocco Creek.

John had a brother named Thomas who also lived in Granville/Bute/Franklin Co. He bought land on Cabbin Creek in 1750.

The Calverts, Pannells, Baylys, and Bakers originally came from Northamptonshire, England. Christopher Calvert was transported to Accomack Co., VA in 1636 by Capt. William Bibby, also of Northamptonshire. John Pannell arrived in Accommack Co. in 1646 aboard the "Honour" by Capt. Thomas Harrison.

The Colbert/Calvert, Pannell/Pinnell and Bibby families have lived together as a "unit" for over 350 years and still live in Franklin Co., NC today.

The counties of Accomack and Northampton, VA were first populated by families that came from Northamptonshire and Norfolk, England.

John Pannell was a farmer in England and related to several families, including the Bakers who also made their way to Accomack Co. The Bakers were also related to the Neal family. John Neal was a Commissioner of Accomack. And Obedience Robins, also a Commissioner of Accomack, had a wife named Grace Neal. Her mother was a Baker.

I need to check my notes, but I think the Duncan's also lived in Accomack Co. in the early 1600's. If so, they may have also come from Northamptonshire, England.
