Simon Halstead Jnr.

Simon is the son of Simon Halstead Snr, brother of John and Henry Halstead. Simon Snr, Simon Jnr, Henry and John are all connected to the area between Great Bridge and Ferry Point in the Norfolk tithable lists. Simon Jnr eventually inherits Simon Snr's slaves, including one Jamacia (James Hallstead), and some of his property. James Hallstead identifies Samuel Halstead as his former owner in the Book of Negroes, but it is not possible to identify James among Samuel's slaves in the tithable listings. It is probable, given the immediate family connection, that Samuel is a mistake for Simon and that Simon Jnr was James' last owner. It is his brother Henry Halstead however who claims the loss of James and his son, Moses, to the British in 1775.
