Notes for FEMALE HAMPTON: No indication of Andrew's daughters name has been located.

Notes for JOSEPH KING: In the Granville “Miscellaneous” box there is a slip of paper dated 1747, or 1749, which says Joseph King is granted permission to operate a mill on Indian Fields Creek. The only land on Indian Fields Creek suitable for a mill was Andrew Hampton's land. Joseph King was Andrew Hampton's son-in- law. Indian Fields Creek, about 1750, became Hampton's Mill Creek. A few years later, Ephraim Hampton went into the mill business with a neighbor named Addcock. SOURCE: James Foster


JOHN HAMPTON, b. Abt. 1745; m. KITURAH.

Notes for JOHN HAMPTON: John Hampton was constable for the 1767 tax listing. He is on the 1778 Rowan County tax list along with Ezekiel. His signature last shows up on the Granville records on a road petition filed in 1777, but several months could have elapsed between signing and filing that petition. He and his wife, Kiturah ("Catte", probably pronounced "Katie") sold their last Granville property 27 July 1776, to Robert Reid, an official of the Granville County Court. John and Kiturah are shown in the deed as being "of Rowan county." The deed was not brought to the County Court until February 1780. In 1771 John's name was the first on the list of signers of a petition protesting taxes on top of taxes, the final straw being a tax to build more churches in Granville County. About 1771 he and Sherwood Harris filed a record of processioning all the "patented and deeded land" between Oxford and the ford where the Old Trading Path crossed the Tar River. John is last on the Granville tax list of 1772, along with Ephraim and Ezekiel. On the next list, 1774, John is gone but Zachariah appears by name for the first time, as head of household, along with Ephraim and Ezekiel. It is Ezekiel's last appearance on the Granville list. Andrew's son, John, was a singular man. He was a Loyalist Lt. Col. during the Revolution who trained the only southern Loyalist regiment accepted by the British as part of the regular British army. After his capture, the patriotic citizens of Granville wrote a letter telling what an outstanding young man John was, even if he was in the wrong army. The Governor of NC wrote that John was a truly honorable man and delegated an American Major to be personally responsible for John's safety in case "some of the more intemperate citizens of Salisbury should seek to do him harm".
