1729 Meherrin Reservation

In “An Act for the More Quiet Settling the Bounds of the Meherrin Indian Lands” a new reservation was established at the confluence of the Chowan and Meherrin rivers. This was an expansion of the reservation at Parker’s Fairy.

“all English people, or any other, living in the said bounds, shall move off, and that no persons but the said Indians shall inhabit or cultivate any lands within the limits aforesaid, while the said Indians remain a nation, and live thereon.”
