Later descendants went on to Chowan Precinct in NC before going on to Old Dobbs Co. on the Neuse River where they settled in a tight little clutch called Herrings Nest. John Herrings name appears on a list when Robert Eyers got a 200 acre land grant for transporting people (VA) Deeds in Isle of Wight in 1640's place John's home near Blackwater River in vicinity of Horse Swamp, northwest of present day Windsor in Isle of Wight Co. He made his will in 1672 naming son Anthony. The name Herring is Teutonic origin. In German-Nordic terms it was spelled Herinc, Herink, Hareng and during early Saxon times it meant Warrior. Gradually it changed to Heryng, Hareng and those surnames are in the records of Oxfordshire and Cambridgeshire England in the 1100's and by the 14th Century Herring was common in Norfolk and Suffolk Co. As in medieval England the Herring name soon became common in America. Many record keepers added to the variety of spellings for the name. There are more than 1 listing of a John Herring being transported to Va and the one cited above may not be ours but our John did continue to have some transactions with the Ayers family and some by that name also moved to Dobbs Co. NC. Marjorie was John's wife although it's not known if she was his only wife. She made her will in 1675. John's will mentions a John Whitfield who was 14 at that time, but the wording of Marjorie S will seems to suggest she had been married before and it may have been to Whitfield, but she named Clement Creswell as Executor. Why didn't she name Anthony? He was an adult in 1672. John was a tobacco farmer and may have processed tar. He is mentioned in 17th Century Isle of Wight in a land deed as being on the border of a certain mans land. Will of John Herring: 10 June 1672 In the name of God, Amen. being in good and perfect memory.. Give unto my son Anthony two steers at 4 years old and a cow called Brantia, one 2 year old heifer, a small flock bed with a flock pillor for it (May be feather?) One iron pot of 3-4 gallons, one small fowling piece (gun) three dishes, 1 pewter basin, 1 candlestick, 1pewter flagon, 3 pewter spoons, 1 white earthen salsellor (salt cellar?) and one other boll (bowl) and one sow. And I give to my son Anthony after my debts are paid 3 barrels of tar, half of the crop of tobacco, and leave everything else to my beloved wife Marjorie.

Will was proved in open court in Isle of Wight by John Vickers and Thomas Gross on 20 June 1672 and recorded. John also appointed Marjorie as his executor. Is this date of will writing also or only of recording date? All above from records of James Grimwood of Houston, but many others gave him some records too. Marriage 1 Margorie (WHITFIELD?) Married: in Isle of Wight County, Virginia? Children Anthony HERRING b: 1648 in Isle of Wight County, Virginia
