Seven different family surnames were listed among those thought to be Lumbee Indians in Bladen District which was sparsely settled in 1763. The classification of Gilbert Cox and Thomas Ivey as Lumbee is less than certain. All were classified as White, not Black, although no provision was made for other ethnic categories such as mulatto or "mestizo." The names Braveboy, Bullard, Drinkwater, Kersey and Locklear are obviously core Lumbee names. It appears that not all Lumbee names were given in to tax collectors because several others, including Chavis, Lowry, Oxendine, and Perkins, were there according to deed and land grant records.
