Looking for Dixons and Stallings from NC & VA
I have traced the Stallings name back to Nicholas Stallings. B.1620 in Middlesex England. He came to America. He was first reported to have been in James County Va on Nov. 5,1635. Iam not sure about the dates, if he came here in 1635 that means he was only 15 years old. A book written by Nell N. Nugent 1943 claims Nicholas was imported with 23 others by William Swan. Swan bought 1200 acres of land in James County Va on the south side of the James river. Nicholas Stallings was the overseer. He married Christine Morecroft in 1654 in Nanesmond County Va. I believe Nicholas d. april of 1663. I believe all my dates for Nicholas Stallings Sr. are wrong. I know he had 3 sons, Nicholas Jr, John, and Elias. John is where my family begins. I have 10 generations. All the way to my grandson Aaron.
