GRANVILLE COUNTY, North Carolina:

Granville County, North Carolina:  Granville County is especially confusing – it has at least two separate Going families living in the same county with several people having the same names.  I have created a chart based on tithe records I have located to attempt to differentiate the families:

Granville County NC tithe chart for black and/or mulatto and white Going families

This chart is based on the following tithe records:

From Gowen Manuscript:  http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~gowenrf/Gowenms096.htm

Colonial North Carolina, particularly Granville County, was an area where a good relationship existed between whites and “free colored individuals.” A number of prominent individuals petitioned the state legislature for tax relief for inter-racial marriages, according to “Colonial and State Records of North Carolina,” Volume 5, [1755]:

“Records of the Legislature: The petition of sundry Inhabitants of the Counties of Northampton, Edge­combe, and Granville was read, setting forth that by the Laws now in force, free negroes and Mulattoes In­termarrying with white women are obliged to pay Taxes for their Wives and Families Praying Relief etc, on which the House Resolved that the Matters in the said petition contained are reasonable and that the Committee appointed to Revise the Laws receive a Clause or Clauses to be inserted in the laws for their relief.”

The matter was taken up again by the legislature in 1762, ac­cording to Volume 6:

“To the Worshipful the Speaker and Gentlemen of the Assembly. The petition of Sundry of the Inhabitants of the Counties of Northampton, Edgecombe and Granville Humbly Sheweth:

That by one Act of the Assembly passed in the year 1723, Intitled ‘An Act for an Additional Tax on all free Negroes, Mulattoes, Mustees and such Persons, Male & Female, as now are or hereafter shall be intermarried with any such Person resident in the Government. It was enacted That all free Negroes etc, that were or should thereafter be Inhabitants of this Province being of the Age of twelve Years & upwards should be deemed Tythables and as such should yearly pay the same Levies and Taxes as other Tythable Inhabitants.”

That many Inhabitants of the sd Counties who are Free Negroes & Mulattoes and persons of Probity & good Demeanor and chearfully contribute towards the Dis­charge of every Public Duty injoined them by Law. But by reason of being obliged by the sd Act of As­sembly to pay Levies for their Wives and Daughters as therein mentioned are greatly Impoverished and many of them rendered unable to support themselves and Families with the common Necessaries of Life.

Wherefore your Petitioners would humbly pray in be­half of the Sd free Negroes etc, That so much of the said recited Act as compels such of them as Intermarry with those of their own complection to pay Taxes for their Wives & Daughters may be repealed or that they may be other relieved as to your Worships in your great Wisdom seem meet. And you Petitioners as in Duty bound shall ever pray, etc.”

Historians sometime refer to mulattos in this area as Melun­geons. Colonial recorders, upon occasion, listed them as “white” and, at other times, recorded them as mulattos because of the color of their skin. The term “Melungeon” was a more recent appellation and was probably not widely used in colo­nial times. A large colony of Melungeons by the name of Gowen [and other spelling variations] existed in Melungia, the area where Virginia, Tennesseee, North Carolina and Kentucky come together.
