U.S. States: Virginia: Isle of Wight County
Lynn, here is a quote from "ISLE OF WIGHT COUNTY, 1608 - 1907" by Col. E. M. Morrison.
"In 1642 the county, heretofore one parish, was divided into two. Lawnes Creek was the northern and Pagan Creek was the southern boundary of the Upper Parish; Pagan Creek the northern and the Nansemond county line the southern boundary of the Lower Parish. They both extended to the North Carolina line, about ninety miles."
