Notes:
"JOHN PIPKIN III 1677-1745"
It is believed by this writer that "John Pipkin III" was born in Surrey Co. Virgina. His father "John Pipkin II" migrated to Virginia Colony abt 1659 from Bedfordshire, England. John Pipkin III is on the "Quits Rent List" of Nanesmond Co. North Carolina in 1704. This is the earliest that John Pipkin III shows up in any kind of offical records. His father, however, shows up on several occasions in Surrey Co. Virgina court documents as early as 1665. John Pipkin III was a "Planter" in North Carolina. Very probably a planter of tobacco, as that was the major export crop of the area & for that time era. John Pipkin III was a large slave owner in North Carolina & farmed several hundred acres of land. I have been able to count no less than 17 slaves that John Pipkin III owned & he also held the indenturment contract of at least one man named Adam Knight in 1711 in Chowan Co. North Carolina. John Pipkin III seems to have been a fairly quiet man politically, as he doesn't show up on very many colonial
documents. But he also seems to be quite active in social affairs. As he was a "Witness" on several land Contracts/Documents for his friends, neighbors & relation. His sons, however, were a different story as you'll see when you navigate your way through this web site.It is also quite obvious that John Pipkin III was a very religious man as his "WILL" would indicate. It appears that John Pipkin III had no formal education, as all documents that bare his signature are marked with an X. This indicates that he came from a modest if not poor family back ground. It is very possible, if not probable, that John Pipkin III was married before Martha Goodman. Some researchers have suggested that her name was "Mary Steward", due to the age difference between sons "Steward" & "Daniel", and the son named "Steward". Of the
10 Children "Steward" is the only one that doesn't have a Biblical name. Was he named after his mother?? Did "Mary Steward" die in child birth with "Steward"?? I think that it is very possible, if not probably. There were a few "Steward" families in the Chowan
Co[unty], North Carolina area during this time. John Pipkin III's second wife at his death in May 1745 was "Martha". Some researches have suggested that her maiden name was Martha "Goodman". However, no documentation has surfaced to say exactly what her maiden was. The reason that I & other Pipkin Family researches think that this is the case, is based on the fact that "William Goodman", who was a close friend & neighbor of John Pipkin III, had a daughter named Martha. This is all that we have to go on for her. Martha's death place or date wasn't even recorded by the Pipkin Family.

In 1704 when John Pipkin III first appeared on the "Quits Rents List" he was, lets say,
a "Humble Man of Means". By the time that he purchases the indenturment contract of Adam Knight in 1711, John seems to have come a long way in his pursuit of wealth. When he died in May 1745 he had already established his older children on thier own plantations & left a small fortune by colonial standards to his wife, Martha, & his youngest children, who were under age.
