1680 depositions re:  THE CULPEPER REBELLION
See Wiki page for description: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Culpeper%27s_Rebellion

Culpeper’s Rebellion was a popular uprising in 1677 provoked by the British Navigation Acts. It was led by John Culpeper against the ruling Lords Proprietor in Albemarle County, Province of Carolina, near what is now Elizabeth City, North Carolina. The uprising met with temporary success before being suppressed by English authorities.

Development of the revolt

In 1677, a group of about 40 men opposed to the lords+ decided to force Miller out of office. They were led by Durant, Valentine Bird, and John Culpeper, who had been thrown out of Charles Town and who, according to one historian, “had the reputation of a troublemaker who enjoyed a good fight.”1 They armed themselves, arrested Miller and other officials, and took over the government.

The rebels then held new elections for an assembly that met at Durant’s house. Acting as the colony’s government, they tried Miller, convicted him, and imprisoned him, and they warned Thomas Eastchurch, who had recently arrived in Virginia, to stay away.

Miller again escaped from jail and went to England to report to the lords. Culpeper followed him to make his own case. The English government held an investigation, and Culpeper was tried for rebellion. The Lords Proprietor, though, wanted to keep the matter quiet. Lord Shaftesbury, one of the lords, defended him, arguing that the colony had no settled government and that the colonists had every right to “riot” against the abuses of Miller and Eastchurch. Culpeper was acquitted and returned home to Albemarle a hero.

Depositions regarding the Culpeper Rebellion:

The Deposicon of Thomas Harrison aged 34 yrs or thereabouts saith That Capt Haron sent for him to Repack some Tobacco & when ye depot had repact about three or four HHds he found it so Rotten & bad yt he told him he thought it would not be worth his time to Repack it ye sd Capt Haron said he did not know what to doe with it he thought it would not be worth his carrying home then ye said Capt Haron asked yor Dept if he*might putt Six or Seven HHds in his Tobacco house to wch yor Depot Consented then ye said Capt Haron sent a shore the sd Tobacco being about Six or Seaven HHds & ye sd Capt Haron told yor Dept perhapps he might gett somewhatt for it when the New England Men came in.

On the front cover of the Bible almost illegibly written are the names of 8 of their servants and the date of their birth.

Miss Chloe Cowand was a member of the Family of John Gray Blount and also of his son Thomas Blount for several years. Upon the death of Capt. Joseph Bozeman she returned to Edenton and lived with her aunt until her death. She then returned to Washington where she purchased a house and lived there until her death. She was very much attached to the family of John Gray Blount, and by will left her property to several of his grand-children — subject to the life estate of her cousin, Mrs. Arcadia Howard Mastin.

Judge Rodman was one of the heirs, hence the Bible being now in the possession of Miss Lida T. Rodman to whose kind and thoughtful consideration we are indebted for the above copy of the Record.
