The family groups in the King and Queen tax rolls during the period in question (about 1782 to 1824 is what I'm studying) contain no "Spencer"s or "Wyatt"s. The groups are fairly small, and cluster in two distinct areas of K&Q. One group, the "Northern" group appear near modern day Aylett, some 20 miles NW of the Court House, just above modern state Rt. 360. The "Southern" group appears some 20 miles South East of the Court house, in the lower end of the Pennensula. The earliest tax record (1782) only lists two Atkins', both "John". The naming patterns don't branch out much. Mostly Johns and Josephs to the North. Lewis appears in the South starting in 1791, last appearing in 1817. It is from the John Atkins (Sr. and Jr.) group in the North that Clayton, the subject of my study springs. It is the Southern group, however, which stayed in K&Q, the Northern bunch largely moving several miles over to Essex and putting down roots near Miller's Tavern. The tax records are about all that exists from that period, since the Yanks burned the K&Q Court House during the War.
