This is my working hypothesis – the way I see it as of this moment!!


About Henry Winborne: In 1762-63 Henry Winborne [ 1720 – aft 1763 bef 1772] was a member from Hertford County of the Colonial Assembly or House along with William Murfree. Winborne came to Hertford County in 1742 with his companion, Bryan Hare from Nansemond County, VA. Henry married Sarah Hare, a Quaker lady of Nansemond County, VA. He was one of the colonial justices of peace. He died after 1763. Their children were: Henry, William, Thomas and Sarah. [maybe others].[B.B.Winborne erred in confusing father and son as one and states that Sarah had died by 1759] Any way we know by John Freeman’s will that his widow Sarah was the former wife of Henry Winborne and James Rasco. Henry Jr died in the 1790’s]

Sarah after 14 Nov 1778 and before 7 Dec 1782 married John Freeman of Bertie County, who died in 1785. He leaves to his wife “all the things she possessed from the estates of her former husbands Henry Winborne and James Rascoe.”

  1. Hello….I’m tracing my family genealogy and found your detailed family history to be greatly helpful. Being an African American, we weren’t included in the census prior to 1870, only in slave records. My great-great grandmother was Amanda Winborne, a slave on the Winborne plantation. I’m in the Norfolk area and wanted to know exactly where the plantation was located so we can also archive that in our family history. Any information you could provide would be welcomed blessing.
    Sincerely,
    Kevyn
