The Above List of Rogues is all free Negroes and Mullatus living upon the Kings Land.
The title "Captain" for James lvey may suggest that he was a Militia Captain of the region or the title may have been purely honorific. Note the historically new or additional Lumbee names of Dees [Deese], Grant, Groom, Pace, Sweat and Vaun. Their appearance supports the idea that more and different Lumbee families were being added to or drawn to the Greater Lumbee Settlement in the late 1760s and early 1770s.
