From Pitt County Chronicle Mathias Tyson (1246) p. 689 "In 1679, he, his mother Susannika, and his father John, a planter, purchased together a farm on Virginia's Eastern Shore in Northampton County. After his father's death, he and his wife Mary lived in admoining Accomack County from around 1691 to 1702. He and his family entered North Carolina as early settlers of Bath County, in the area which is now Hyde County, and lived near Slade's Creek, a branch of the Pungo River. In his Bath County will, dated April 5, 1710, Mathias Tyson made bequests to his wife Mary, daughter Susannah, grandson Aaron and sons John, Edward, Cornelius, Edmond, Thomas, Jonas, Samuel and Mathias. He and John, probably the oldest of his sons, had been among the petitioners who around 1708 sought to have courts established in Wickham Precinct, which later became Hyde County. One of Mathias Tyson's sons, the father of the grandson Aaron, was killed by Indians around 1710.
