yes! that is very interesting. These Mallet families have got my curiosity going.
Peter Mallet is what I would love to find out more of. I just wish the report of Peter Mallet being bound to Lewis Patrick provided more information than what was provided online. Mecklenburg County Va is no more than an hour away from Warren County NC where Peter was bound at the age of 12. Wilkes County NC is just a few hours away from Warren County NC. This makes me believe that this is the one and the same Peter Mallet we are talking about.
I wonder if Peter's mother, Mary Mallet, was a slave herself (or if she was a part of the actual Mallet family) and if the reason why he was bound was because she had died but the information did not list Peter being an orphan of Mary's.
I've been to Warren NC many years ago and it was still a small little town. I just wish I had the information I know now so I could of done some research then.
All I have concerning Peter is,
From the Apprenticeship Records of Warren County, NC (1779 – 1799)
On Feb 26 1790, Peter mallet, being 12 years old last August in 1789, was a base born child of Mary Mallet. He was bound to Lewis Patrick, to be a planter. (by presiding Justice, William Johnson).
Also..... on Feb 14 1780, being 8 years old last September in 1779 was an orphan named Shadrack Lambert, son of John Lambert who was deceased, was bound also to Lewis Patrick to be taught to be a planter.(by presiding Justice, William Johnson).
I'm not sure how many children were bound to Lewis Patrick to learn the ways of a planter but I'm sure this is a good lead. I have still yet to find where Peter was living with Lewis Patrick during this time. I suppose the best direction will be NC.
