Return to Hyde County

Edward Midyett - 1849
NC State Archives; Original estates records 1745-1904; CR.053.508.51

Mar. 1, 1849 - Signing an administrator's bond for $600 were Joseph C. Jennett (administrator) with Thomas R. Gibbs and Tilson G. Credle as his securities.

Feb. Term 1851 - Petition of Fereby Midyett against John W. Rolinson shows that she is the widow of Edward Midyett late of Hyde County who died in the year 184_ intestate, leaving her unprovided for; that he died seized and possessed of a tract of land that adjoins the lands of Reuben Ballance and George W. Stow and others, whereon her late husband lived and died.  Petitioner further states that Joseph C. Jennett took out letters of administration on the estate and by an order of the court sold all the said land, subject to petitioners right of dower and that said defendant became the purchaser.  Said petitioner asks that the court order a writ of dower.  /s/ W. Clark, Arr. for Petitioner

Feb. 1851 - Summons for the Sheriff of Hyde County to subpoena John W. Rolinson to appear in Swan Quarter at Court on the 9th Monday after the 4th Monday in March next to show cause why Fereby Midyett should not be granted her dower.  /s/ Will. W. Spencer

[NOTE:] I believe that this Edward Midyett could be the son of Timothy Midyett, Sr. and his wife Sarah who died about 1810 & 1812, respectively.  Currituck Court Minutes for August Term 1812 show that Thomas F. Midyett, orphan of Timothy Midgit, be bound apprentice to James Midgett until he becomes 21, he now being about 10 years of age, to learn the trade of shoemaking.  Also at this same term of Court James Midget was appointed guardian to Edward, Abner, Sarah, Timothy, Thomas & Frances Midgett, orphans of Sarah Midgitt, dec'd., who entered into bond of 100 per child with John Quidley and John Barnard as his securities.  I believe that Edward was born between 1790-1800, married a Millie Scarborough by 1820 and then married Fereby between 1836-1840.  More research needs to be done on this family!!]
