Granville County, North Carolina.
Notes for EPHRIAM H. HAMPTON SR.: Ephraim Hampton went into the mill business with a neighbor named Addcock in the mid 1750's. The Granville Militia Regiment under Colonel William Eaton in 1754 shows eight companies, with Captain Hampton commanding Company #8, with 60 men. John Adcock shows as the Lieutenant in the company, with Ephraim Hampton as Ensign. A map of the area for this period shows Hampton Creek and Adcock's Creek, at the head of the Tar River. Joseph King (Andrew's son-in-law) signed a deed selling his Granville land at Nap of Reeds (near the present Durham County line north of Butner) to Ephraim, the deed reading "Joseph King of the parish of St. George in the province of Georgia." A part of St. George's parish became Jefferson County. NC, Granville Deed book H 416, Nov 17, 1767. 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. Ephraim reported two males 16-21 in his household on the 1772 Granville tax list. He had been married only 9 years, so they probably were not his sons. On the next Granville tax list (1774), the two males are gone from Ephaim's house, but Zachariah shows up as an adult for the first time.
