John Earle Jr

1Mrs. Thomas Eugene Hooker, Earle, Patience of Perquimans County, N.C., New England Historical and Genealogical Register 104:227, pg 226. "Added to the latter item is the reference from "The Earle Family", by Pliny Earle: "John Earle (John, Ralph, Wm., Ralph), b. 7-4-1727; m. Patience Stafford; and supposed to have removed to Perquimans Co., N. C." This answers the question as to the husband of Patience of Ptrquimans, but gives nothing further concerning them or their children. And so begins a search which carries us from the rocky coast of Maine to the sunny shores of Carteret in North Carolina."

2Mrs. Thomas Eugene Hooker, Earle, Patience of Perquimans County, N.C., pg 230. "From the foregoing records, and from other references from Hinshaw, vol. 1, we are now able to build a somewhat clearer picture of John Earle, Jr., and his descendants: John Earle, Jr., was born 4 July 1727 in Swansea, Mass., where he married Patience Stafford on 29 June 1745. Patience was probably born c. 1728. This would make John eighteen years old and Patience seventeen years old when they married. John was dead by 28 Dec. 1748, meaning that he died before he was twenty-two years old. Patience died after 17 April 1770, showing that she was forty-two or more years old when she died. They had the following known descendants: 1. Sarah Earle, born c. 1746 in (?)Swansea; married 22 Dec. 1764 George Walton. She must have died before 4 Aug. 1773, as her husband was reported married to Mary Winslow on that date. They probably had children: a.} Sarah Walton, married Eli Copeland 17 Aug. 1817, and (b.) George Walton, married Isabel Scott 1 Jan. 1803; 2. John Earl III, born 28 Dec. 1748 in Dutchess County; married Elizabeth ----; died by 28 Dec. 1789 in Pasquotank County, N. C.; and had: (a.) Sarah Earle born c. 1768; married 20 Jan. 1788 Charles White, and had John Earl White and Mary White."

Patience Stafford

1Mrs. Thomas Eugene Hooker, Earle, Patience of Perquimans County, N.C., New England Historical and Genealogical Register 104:227, pg 226. "In Perquimans County is to be found the most fascinating of Earle items: Patience Earll deeds land in Dutchess County, N. Y., to her son John Earll 17 April 1770. Who was Patience's husband, and who were her other children? The reference to land in the Province of New York reminds us of a tradition among descendants of Capt. Francis Earle that he was of New York and sailed ships to trade between New Turk and the Indies. A great pearl, said to have been given his son, Josiah (also a sea captain) by some ancient Official of one of the Indies Isles was a family heirloom."

2Mrs. Thomas Eugene Hooker, Earle, Patience of Perquimans County, N.C., pg 226. "John Earle and Patience Stafford were married in Swansea, Mass., 29 June 1745. They were both members of the Society of Friends. John and his parents, John and Sarah Earle, lived in Swansea. Patience lived with her widowed mother, Sarah Stafford, in Tiverton, R. I., her deceased father having been JOSIAH STAFFORD (see Rhode Island Vital Records, Arnold, vol. 7, p. 285). Quaker records of Tiverton, R. I., show that Josiah Stafford died in Tiverton on 9 April 1743, and Sarah (wife of Josiah), died 10 May 1754 in Tiverton (Arnold, 4-108). From these two items, we have a possible source of the given name "Josiah" in the Albcmarle Sound family of Earles, and arc spurred to greater effort."

3Mrs. Thomas Eugene Hooker, Earle, Patience of Perquimans County, N.C., pg 229-230. "On 22 Dec. 1764 in Perquimans County, N. C., "Miss Sarah Earles" was married to George Walton, Richard Hodges, security (Hathaway, 3-413). Then, on 8 April 1765 in Tiverton, " --- Patience Earll of the County of Perquimans in North Carolina, widow, for Sundry good causes --- by these presents do -- ap­point -- my trusty and well beloved Friend GEORGE WALTON of ye sd County in North Carolina, marriner, my true & Law­ful Attorney to Sell & Deliver for me and in my name & to my use.

   Wit: Noah Chase and John Low.  Received and recorded 31 Oct 1765, by Restcome Sanford, Town Clerk (Tiverton deeds, I-405). It can hardly be doubted that Sarah Earle, who married George Walton in Perquimans County, N.C., on 22 Dec. 1784, was the daughter of John Earle, Jr. and his wife Patience.  We also know that John and Patience had a son, John, born 28 Dec. 1748."

John Earle III

1Mrs. Thomas Eugene Hooker, Earle, Patience of Perquimans County, N.C., New England Historical and Genealogical Register 104:227, pg 230. "The John Earle, with wife Elizabeth, living in Perquimams and Pasquotank Counties, N. C., between 1775 and 1788, is undoubtedly the John Earll, born 28 Dec. 1748, and the son John to whom Patience deeded land in Dutchess County, N. Y., 17 April 1770. This John and Elizabeth Earle had a daughter, Sarah Earle, who married Charles White on 20 Jan. 1788 in Pasquutank County, N. C. (Hinshaw, 1-138). The inventory of the estate of John Earl was taken 28th day of the 12th month 1789 by Elizabeth Earl: I negro man Jack, 1 negro woman Ame, 3 negro children named Demcy, Pharaba & Rose, I old Bible, signed - Elizabeth Earl (Pasquotnnk Count)-, N.

Charles White

1Mrs. Thomas Eugene Hooker, Earle, Patience of Perquimans County, N.C., New England Historical and Genealogical Register 104:227, pg 230. "Pasquotank County Friends Records (Hinshaw, vol. 1) show that on 12 March 1797 Charles White and his children, John E. and Mary, were granted certificates to the Piney Woods Monthly Meeting (some time removed). Then on l April 1797 the Perquimans County Friends Records show that Charles White and his children, John Earl White and Mary White, were received on certificate from the Symons Cr. Monthly Meeting."

Capt. Francis Earle

1Mrs. Thomas Eugene Hooker, Earle, Patience of Perquimans County, N.C., New England Historical and Genealogical Register 104:227, pg 230-231. "In an effort to fit Francis Earlc into the foregoing family, we refer to the 1800 census of Camden County, N. C. (Camden was taken from Pnsquotank County, 1777; Pasquotank, Perquimans, Chowan, and Tyrrell were part of old Albemarle Precinct), which says that he was born before 1755 (over 45 years old in 180)). We therefore believe that Francis was born between 1745 and 1755. John Earle, Jr., and Patience were married on 29 June 1745, and had a child born (presumably) about 1746. Their next known child was not born until 28 Dec. 1748, at which time John Earle, Jr was dead.  Therefore, a third child would have to have been born between 1746 and 1748 - which fits the census requirements. That, with the Christian name, "Josiah", and proximity, are the only points which this study has produced in regard to the parentage of Capt. Francis Earle, of Camden County, N. C. If the letters, referred to by the Rcv. Pardon G. Seabury, written by Patience Earle to her mother in Tiverton, R. I., could be found, they might contain information concerning Patience's children. Francis Earle left children: Francis, John, Margaret, Josiah, and Miles."

2Mrs. Thomas Eugene Hooker, Earle, Patience of Perquimans County, N.C., pg 235. "Francis presents this picture: 1800 Census, Camden Co., N. C., p. 102 - - Francis Earle, 5 m. 10, 1 m. 16, 1 m. 45 plus, I f. 10, I f. 45. He is not to be found in the 1790 North Carolina census, nor in any census subsequent to 1800. The probable explanation of this is that he was a sea-faring man. From records of Exports & Imports, Dept. of Archives & History, Raleigh, N. C.; Port Currituck, 5 Feb. 1788 - "Schooner Peggy & Betsy - Francis Earle Master - from St. Bartholom - Cargo Rum"; and again, Port Currituck, 21 March 1785 - "Sch. Peggy & Betsy - Francis Earlie Master - from Tobango -- cargo Rum".  He died before February 1816 in Camden County, leaving land inherited by his wife, Sarah Jones."
