!FAMILY HISTORY: A Williams family genealogy indicates Anthony Herring, brother of Samuel, married Mary Williams (listed as Mary Herring in John Williams' will of 1745 in Bertie Co, NC). An Isle of Wight Co, VA deed of 1724 lists Bridget as the wife of Anthony Herring, and so she was when they sold their VA land on 22 Nov 1740 -- the same in 1742 when Anthony came to North Carolina. This researcher, among others, believes Mary Williams married Abraham Herring. Abraham probably left the Isle of Wight Co. between 1718 and 1724. The Herrings in 1718 bought 150 acres from Benjamin Joyner on Blackwater Swamp and, in 1824, "brother" Anthony sold this parcel where Abraham Herring lived to John Little. Abraham did not surface in Bertie Co, NC until 12 years after that sale -- 1736 -- when "brother" John sold him 380 acres on Bear Swamp for L100. Three years later Abraham Herring sold this property. As of the 1740s, most of Abraham's documented activities are in the Bucklesberry Swamp area, adjoining John Williams, et al. One Herring family researcher says that Abraham served as sheriff of Bertie Co. Abraham had his stock mark registered (a swallow fork in the left ear and a nick in the right ear) at the Bertie Co court in Nov 1740. On his death, in an account supposedly dated 1744, "John Holbrook was paid to cas for going to Neuse after debt that was due there to acquaint the heirs of his death . . . Note mentions, among others, Abraham Herring." However, in 1749 an Abraham Herring was listed in a deed selling land to Arnold Hopkins, & continued to be listed in Bertie Co deeds until 1757 -- sometimes as a witness.

Noted that brother John, sold him land in Bertie County, North Carolina in 1736. (Research):From Rose Parks (Rootsweb): Abraham died in 1741 in Bertie. Mary Williams Herring is listed in her father's will in Bertie Co. as Mary Herring. Abraham left Isle of Wight between 1719 and 1724. The Herrings bought 150 acres from Benjamin Joyner on Blackwater Swamp in 1724. Anthony sold this tract where Abraham lived to John Little. Abraham did not surface again in documents until 1734 when his brother John sold him 300 acres of land on Bear Swamp for 100 pounds. Three years later Abraham sold this property. Most of Abrahams documented activities are in the Bucklesberry Swamp area joining John Williams and others. Abraham served as Sheriff of Bertie and his stock mark was registered as a swallow fork in left ear and a nick in right ear at the Bertie Co. Courthouse in Nov. 1740.(There is also a Bucklesberry Swamp in Lenoir) On his death in an account dated (supposedly} 1744 John Holbrook was paid cash for going to the Neuse River after debt that was to acquaint the heirs of his death, however Abraham was listed in a deed selling land to Arnold Hopkins and continued to be listed in some deeds until 1750's. This Herring material was from material compiled by James Grimwood, himself a Herring researcher and others, into Herring Tidbits I, II and the latest Vol. III published
