Married to two Catherine Morbes (?) (Research):From Rootsweb (Rose Parks): The area in North Carolina where these Herrings were, constantly changed county names as more people came in and then began to move west. When they first went to the Neuse River area in 1738 it was in Craven County but in 1746 it became Johnston and in 1758 it became Dobbs. Wayne Co. was created in 1779 perhaps from some of Duplin and some from Dobbs? Lenoir County was created in 1791 and Greene in 1799. Other Counties mentioned with this family are Duplin created in 1750 and Sampson was created from it in 1784. John probably followed his in laws to NC as suggested by acreage assigned with no monetary considerations. In Oct. 1715 George Morbe and Catherine his wife assigned 380 acres on south side of Bear Swamp to John Herring of Isle of Wight. In Oct 1717 John acquired a Crown Grant of 640 acres adjoining Will's Quarter Swamp in present Bertie Co. Land tax records for 1721 when John paid 1 pound 1 shilling 7 pence showed he had acquired 1300 acres. In the middle of 1730's he began selling this acreage, deeding 380 acres on Bear Creek to brother Abraham. It appears that the home place on Will's Quarter Swamp where there was a saw and grist mill and court house, he sold to William Byrd on 22 July 1738. Ambrose Ayres was the first to obtain land on the north side of the Neuse River and east side of Falling Creek in what is now Lenoir Co. and John Herring was the second when on 11 November 1738 it was still a part of Craven Co. In 1739 he received a grant of 200 acres on east side of Bear Creek and north side of the Neuse near what was and still is known as "Cliffs of the Neuse" this is in present Wayne Co., NC. John's home site may have come from a purchase he made 2 Feb. 1739 from Ambrose Ayers, planter of Craven Co. for thirty something pounds, 150 acres on Falling Creek and north side of the Neuse, including houses etc. Besides acquiring land John entered into politics, being appointed a Craven Co. JP and serving as Sheriff of Johnston Co. when it was formed . From 1750-1752 he represented Johnston County in the Colonial assembly. While there he helped pass an act to create Duplin Co. Service in the Legislature indicates he was literate. Many deeds he usually witnessed with the mark H. These marks were registered as a trademark of sorts and X was used by those who couldn't write. (This statement made in James Grimwood material and I disagree with it in general. Some men who could not write learned to make a mark of some kind, sometimes being their initials, etc. this may not be the case with John Herring, who knows [RP]} These two deeds are in the Noah Rouse Collection at Duke University Library, and transcribed for the Lenoir Co. Archives by Sue Guptill. (June 2000) Dobbs Co. deed from John Cotton Jr.. to John Herring, same co., 400 pounds. Land on Ground Nutt marsh 100 a. 28 Aug 1779. Signed John Cotton Jr., witnesses Wm. Morton, Elizb [X] Taylor. He was appointed vestryman for St. Patrick's Church in Johnston Co. in 1746. when Dobbs County was formed St. Patrick's Parish remained there and St. John's was formed in Dobbs with John probably remaining a vestryman. This was the Anglican or Church of England, also appointed with him were Col Simon Bright and John Becton. A promissory note found dated January 1753 named John Jr., Simon, Benjamin and Joshua as sons of John Herring. He had died by about 1760. The Herring information came from James Grimwood of Houston, a Herring researcher himself but some of the material was given to him by others and he compiled into books.
