Pasco Curle, a Justice of the Peace in Elizabeth City, Virginia in 1688 was probably born in St. Michaels Parish, Sussex, England.His brother Thomas (who died 1699 in Elizabeth City) was born 24 Nov 1640 in that parish. Thomas left his estate to Pasco and Joshua, sons of his brother Pasco. (See Wills & Administrations of Elizabeth City County, Virginia).Pasco and his wife Sarah had the following children: Pasco (died in 1701; no children) Joshua (married Rosea) Nicholas (married Jane Wilson) Mary (married Henry Jenkins) Judith (married John Bayley) John Thomas
Nicholas died 15 Aug 1714 in Elizabeth City.His widow, Jane Wilson (the daughter of Colonel William Wilson) then married James Ricketts and finally Merritt Sweeney.She died in 1757 leaving a will.Nicholas and Jane had two children: Pasco Wilson who was born 18 Dec 1709.(A land dispute in 1742 gives his birth date, mentions his parents and grandfather -- see Hampton County Virginia, Deeds, Wills, Orders, film #31122, page 45).He married Priscilla Meade (the daughter of Andrew Meade) and died in Elizabeth City in 1748.Their children: Wilson David (who died 1767) Hamilton (who died 1760) Nicholas (who died 1768) Andrew (who died 1762) Jane Mary William Roscoe (who married Euphan Wallace)
Wilson and David both moved to North Carolina.In 1760 David was granted 640 acres on the Great Creek in Halifax County and the following year was granted 665 acres on Pritty Creek in Edgecombe County.In 1762 he received 640 acres on Roanoke River in Halifax County from his grandfather, Andrew Meade.This land passed to David's brother William Roscoe Curle at David's death in 1767, although "the Curle orphans" were taxed on this land in 1788.Wilson Curle bought 124 acres on the south side of Compass Creek in Edgecombe Co., North Carolina in 1770 and bought other land in Nash Co over the next several years. His wife Mourning is mentioned in the deed records for the last time in 1787. William Roscow Curle was secretary of the Norfolk Sons of Liberty when it was organized in 1766 to protest the Stamp Act.He was also a Judge of the Admiralty Court.In 1760 he was living on the west side of the Chowan River in Bertie Co., North Carolina.He and Euphan Wallace (daughter of James Wallace) had two children: Elizabeth Wilson (who married Lockey Langhorne) and died in Elizabeth City in 1792.From his father he received the 640 acres on Great Creek in Halifax Co., North Carolina which had been granted to his uncle David. Can anyone extend any of these lines?
