Grayson County, Virginia in 1793. This younger Andrew had married Sarah Griggs, the widow of John Grigs, who was one of the sons mentioned in the 1760 Griggs will................. Andrew Hampton and 36 other settlers from Granville, with 19 settlers from Edgecomb, petition for the repeal of the tax on free Negroes in1763. Andrew had been a militia Captain at least since 1754, which is the date of the earliest militia muster roll showing his name, but he had resigned his commission before the 1763 muster roll was drawn up. If Andrew were born as early as 1710, he would have been 53 years old. JANUARY 10, 1767: This is the latest date for a land entry found in Granville for Andrew Hampton, he deeded 200 acres to son Ezekiel having obtained the same land on the same date by deed from Henry McCullock, Esq. On the deed of sale for his last Granville land, Andrew is noted as "being in the Province of Georgia." Other deeds indicate that Joseph King, Andrew's son-in-law and Ezekiel went to Georgia at the same time (1765), although Ezekiel returned shortly thereafter. Granville, NC Deeds H-279 and H-476 (1765) show both Andrew Hampton and Joseph King "in the Province of GA." In 1769, Andrew Hampton applied for a land grant in Georgia along the Altamaha River, stating he had lived in Georgia for four years along with his wife and two minor children (Georgia Headright Grants Book F.5, pages 470, 473) Source:JW Foster. One of these minors could have been Zachariah. The other one could well have been the son Joseph mention, born about 1746. An Andrew Hampton owned land along the Altamaha around 1810. That Andrew Hampton was the son of Joseph Hampton (most likely the son of this Andrew). It is probable that Andrew died in Georgia, but no record of his death has been located. The connection between NC - Andrew Hampton and the GA - Andrew Hampton has not conclusively been proven and further research is needed.

Notes for EZEKIEL HAMPTON: Ezekiel (son of Andrew) sold a tract of land August 4, 1760. Lee Albright and Helen F. M. Leary point out in the first chapter of "North Carolina Research," a man could own land in colonial N.C. before he was twenty-one, but he couldn't sell it until he came of age. Ezekiel was also Constable in Granville Co, NC, responsible for a part of the 1761 list. TAX LISTS FROM 1766 chronicle the migration of Ephraim, Ezekiel and John from Granville to Rowan County. Tax lists from 1766 through 1775 only the head of household is named, followed by the number of tithables in the household, but in 1768 and 1769 the lists name all tithables and whether each is white, black male or black female. After 1775, the lists concentrate on the name of the taxpayer and his or her wealth. Ezekiel and Jane probably moved to the forks of the Yadkin River north of Salisbury just before the Revolution started in the northern colonies. Ezekiel and Jane sold their last property in Granville 22 February 1773. He is listed on the 1778 tax list in Rowan County, N.C.
