  • Notes 
    • INFO: Notes for PETER HAYES: Peter joined the migration of settlers pushing south into the great virgin forests of the Tidewater, after theTuscarora War. From the earliest records it would seem that Peter whohomesteaded on Urashaw Swamp, and his sons, were more interested in buying and selling land thanin farming. The many grants and estate transfers in which they were involved would indicate that theHayes men obtained a comfortable living from real estate, or what would be consideredcomfortable in those frontier days.

      INFO: Peter Hayes of Urashaw born on the Hayes Blackwater plantation in Isle of Wight Co. Just across the river in Surry County was the plantation of Charles Sledge. Peter married Martha Sledge, daughter of Charles. Peter Hayes was the executor of Mary (Clarke) Sledge's will (Boddie, Southside Va. Families, Vol. I, p. 366). The record of a grant of 640 acres in the Urashaw Swamp region has not been found, but it is mentioned in a land transfer. In 1720 Peter Hayes and his eldest son William were listed as having arms and able to defend the colonies against the Indians. This list constitutes a military roster for Capt. Patterson's company, and was made up of all the male residents of the upper part of Chowan Precinct, an area today found in Hertford and Northampton Counties. (Hathaway,Register, Vol. I, p. 443). His will dated August 3, 1760 and probated in March 1761 in Halifax County, North Carolina, names his wife Martha as executrix and gives each of his younger children five shillings. His wife was to have the estate and to see that the children were educated and cared for. Thethree eldest children were not mentioned in the will; they had been established with their own families.
