He already possessed land next to this which was willed to him by his father in 1761.

    Isle of Wight Murfreys
    One family in particular is intriguing, although there is no real evidence that Daniel Murphree belongs in it.

    A William “Murfey” first appears on 20 April 1682 patenting 200 acres in Isle of Wight County adjacent to Edward Perkins.[7] He was probably related to Perkins in some way, as Edward Perkins’ will of 1686 named “William Murphry, Senr.” executor and left him all of Perkins’ land with reversion to his son William Murphry Jr.[8] He also made bequests to “Margaret Murphry, daughter to William Murphry” and to “Mikill Murphry”, both of whom were apparently adults. (There were two legacies to Margaret Murphry, but it is not clear if the will refers to one person or two.)

    William Murfrey Sr. wrote his will on 14 November 1717, and it was recorded in Isle of Wight on 26 June 1721.[9] The will names wife Sarah, “my three sons” Michael, John, and William, and “my five daughters” Catherine Murfrey, Margaret Lawrence, Elizabeth Farrow, Elinor Kerle, and Sarah Anne Murphrey. Sarah was apparently a second wife (his first wife seems to have been named Francis). She is the same Sarah Murfrey whose own will was dated 26 December 1740 and recorded on 26 April 1741.[10] It names her children William Murfree, Anne Murfree, and Catherine Bryan. William Murphrey Sr.’s other children were evidently by a first wife. Sarah was ne Sarah Holladay, as the will of Anthony Holladay written on 3 January 1718 named his daughter Sarah Murphrey and a granddaughter Catherine Murphrey.[11]

    It is confusing, but it appears that William Murphrey Sr. had two sons named William. The first son named William predeceased his father. The William Murfree named in Sarah Murphree’s 1740 will was apparently born after the death of the first William Jr.

    The “first” William Murphrey Jr. was born before 1686, when he is mentioned in Edward Perkins’ will, but was clearly a minor at the time. His age is uncertain, because there don’t appear to be any references in Isle of Wight that we can definitely attribute to him. He died intestate in Isle of Wight County sometime before 25 April 1715 when the court ordered an appraisal. The appraisal was dated 5 May and recorded on 27 June by the widow Mary Murfree.[12] By 22 February 1719/20 the widow had remarried to Barnaby McKinnie, as Barnaby and Mary McKinnie signed an accounting as co-administrators. This final accounting includes 29 pounds to be paid to “ye four orphans” and other monies paid to “Rickeses orphans”. Mary Murfrey was ne Mary Exum, who had earlier been married to Jacob Ricks on 14 December 1699 but was a widow by 14 September 1704.[13] (Her brother-in-law was Isaac Ricks, whose Bible gives Jacob Ricks’s date of death as December 1703.) The will of her husband’s father Isaac Ricks, written on 26 September 1721, leaves one shilling each to Isaac and Martha, the children of his deceased son Jacob Ricks.[14] The will of Mary’s mother Anne Exum, written on 3 February 1726/7, mentions her daughter “Mary Mackiny” and a grandchild “Ann Murfry”.[15]

    In summary, it appears that William Murfrey Jr. married the widow Mary Exum Ricks sometime after September 1704, and had four children by her before 1715. (If he had an earlier wife, but we have no evidence of it.) One of the children was Ann Murfrey named in her grandmother’s will, but the names of the other three are unknown.

    It is intriguing to speculate that our Daniel Murphree may have been one of these orphans. His apparent age would fit if he were a very young child at the death of William Murphree Jr. However, there is absolutely no proof. Nor is there even any circumstantial evidence. However, neither can we disprove the case.

    All of the Murphrees in the above family remained in Virginia for several decades. Barnaby McKinnie, his wife and (presumably) the four Murfree orphans migrated across the state line into North Carolina by 1720, settling in present Halifax County roughly 25 miles northwest of the place we first find Daniel Murphree in 1743. We have reason to believe that Mary Exum’s children lived with Barnaby McKinnie until adulthood. For example, Barnaby McKinney made a deed of gift in 1722 to his son-in-law Isaac Ricks (his wife’s son by her first marriage), and Isaac Ricks appears several times in Bertie records. If Daniel Murphree were one of the four orphans, this would explain how he came to be in the Bertie area. And, if he were an infant at the death of William Murphree, that would explain his absence from records until 1743.

    Barnaby McKinnie and his son appear several times in early Bertie records with a William Murphrey.

    William “Murphey” and his wife Martha sold land to Barnaby McKinnie Sr. in July 1720 which had been inherited by Murphey’s wife Martha, the widow of William Browne.[16] He had married her sometime after Browne’s death in 1718. As William “Murphew” he patented land in what was then Chowan (now Halifax) on 5 April 1720, and sold it to Barnaby McKinnie Jr. on 27 March 1722.[17] This same This William Murphy appears frequently in Bertie records as both “Murphey” and “Murphrey”, and died in 1737 in Edgecombe County leaving no male heirs. His will names three daughters (Mary, Martha, Edith) and a wife Ann, who may have been Ann McKinnie. (The will bequeaths a Murphrey patent of 1721 to “kinsman” William Hurst, husband of Barnaby’s daughter Christian McKinnie.) It’s a mystery who this William Murphrey is. He is not the second William Murphree Jr., who lived in Nansemond County, Virginia and was alive after 1737. Nor is he likely to have been one of the four orphans of the first William Murphree Jr. – he was evidently an underage orphan as late as February 1720, yet must have by then entered the claim for which a patent was granted just two months later and was married by that same year. If he were one of the four orphans, he would have to have been born well prior to the marriage with Mary Exum Ricks. His connection with the McKinnie family may have been my marriage: Barnaby’s daughter Mary was married to a son of William Browne.

    Parker (Pride) Bevill (1728—) [1658.3]

    Parker PRIDE, the daughter of John Pride Sr. and Susanna, was born 2 September 1728 according to the Bristol Parish Register. Parker Pride was a witness to an Amelia County deed between Robert BEVILL and William Bevill. Parker married Edward Bevill (c.1728-1793), the son of Robert Bevill and Ann.
    Edward Bevill appeared as a tithable in Amelia County first in 1749. Two years later he and his brothers secured a patent to land on the north side of Winticomack Creek. A later deed described the land as “part of an Order of Counsill to said... Edward Bevill...” In September 1751 they sold the property in three parcels: 200 acres to EDWARD TANNER, 100 acres to Daniel Coleman, and 248½ acres to Abraham BURTON. Bevill alone sold 9 acres to Edward Tanner again in April 1752. The Bevills still had land remaining from their patent and some sliced off portions for themselves. Joseph Bevill bought the right to 120 acres in January 1752/3, Edward carved out 240 acres for himself in November 1751, and William Bevill of Amelia County took 200 acres in June 1754. The Bevills sold 200 acres to Daniel Bevill in July 1752.
    During August 1754 Edward Bevill, with a wife, Parker, sold 247 acres in Amelia County on the south side of Bevills Great Branch to Abraham Burton Jr. They settled in Lunenburg (now Mecklenburg) County two months later, buying 300 acres on Allens Creek from James BILBO. Elisha Brooks sold Bevill 50 acres on Allens Creek in June 1760. Edward and Parker sold 100 acres to WILLIAM MURPHY****. Edward Bevill was of Lunenburg County in August 1761 when he bought 300 acres from Richard Gregory of Dinwiddie County. In 1764 Edward, with three tithes, paid taxes on 550 acres in Mecklenburg County.
    In March 1765 Bevill bought 296 acres from John TUCKER in exchange for 150 acres on the north side of Allens Creek. Edward and Parker sold 65 more acres on Allens Creek to Abraham Burton in October 1766, 150 acres to Joseph Sutherland in March 1767, and 10 acres to William Wills GREEN in November 1774.
    Edward Bevill was head of a family of six in Mecklenburg County in 1782. Edward Bevill Jr. and John Bevill were nearby.
    Edward Bevill died in Mecklenburg County in 1793 (will dated 2 Feb. 1793 , recorded 10 June 1793). By 1800 Parker was the only Bevill paying tax in Mecklenburg County.
    Children of Edward and Parker (Pride) Bevill:
    Ann Bevill [1658.3.1] married a Neal who was likely Francis Moore Neal, an executor of the will of Ann’s father.
    Susanna Bevill [1658.3.2] married a Brown.
    John Bevill [1658.3.3].
    Edward Bevill [1658.3.4] was dead by 10 September 1798 when two acting administrators returned the estate accounts of Edward Bevill Jr.
    Elizabeth Bevill [1658.3.5] married Thomas HIX in Mecklenburg County 13 December 1796. Francis M. NEAL was surety.
    Martha Bevill [1658.3.6] married a Holloway.
    Micah Bevill [1658.3.7] married James Cole in Mecklenburg County 13 March 1797. Francis M. Neal was surety.
    Robert Bevill [1658.3.8].
