Steward/Stewart/Stuart of Early-day North Carolina

After reviewing my materials collected over the years, I believe I can make some statements about certain STEWARDS/STUARTS/STEWARTS of early 1700s in Chowan NC.
There were two Steward/Stuart men living there: A William and a John, maybe a father and son.

My ancestor, Charles Steward/Stuart lived closely enough to the Paces that he married Ann Pace, whose father lived on the Chowan, as well.

The Stuart/Steward family lived south of Yourha Swamp.
My speculation is that Charles' father was William in that his first son was named William, second son, Richard, named for Ann's father Richard Pace, III.

Charles and Ann live later in Brunswick VA, acquiring considerable land during that time in that county and Surry, which became Sussex.

I do not know what happened to the other Steward/Stuart families living in NC, but would be interested in what some of you know about that time/place.

If you have not reviewed my research at, please do.

Hoping this generates some interest and response.
