* Virtually all of these family names appeared, however briefly, in the Lumbee Settlement between 1760 and 1820; and many are "core" Lumbee surnames. Executions were issued against each of them for $4 in poll tax by Charles Richardson, Tax Collector for Claremont & Clarendon Counties, 25 Sept. 1802. Reference: South Carolina Department of Archives and History, State Treasurer Papers, Unarranged S-218051, Box 3, Free Negroes, mulattoes, Mestizos, Clarendon County 1800. Transcribed by John L. Andrews, Jr., "Clarendon County Free Negro Tax Defaulters 1800-1801," The Carolina Herald and Newsletter: Official Publication of the South Carolina Genealogical Sociey, Vol. XXXIV, No. 3, July-September 2006, 38-39.

Note that some names, such as Perkins and Stapleton, are those that disappeared from the Lumbee Settlement. Clarendon County was located just southeast of Sumter County, not far from Privateer Township, here designated as an early sub-settlement containing several families of Lumbee Indians. This geographical patterning may suggest that thin portions of the Lumbee Settlement on the North Carolina-South Carolina border  extended not only into current Marlboro, Dillon and Marion Counties but also down into the mid-state counties of Sumter and Clarendon as well.
