Info & Sources
Edward "Ned" Christian was the husband of Sarah Hulett Christian and father of five children (Robert, Molly, Jacob, Alice and Lillian) born at Shirley Plantation. Family Bible Record, Charles City County Richard M. Bowman Center for Local History Archives. He appears to be one of two slaves purchased 28 DEC 1849 from Joseph Stamper Trustee for Dr. John F. Christian for the sum of $1,300. This interpretation accords with family oral tradition which says that he was brought to Shirley on a boat. The family Bible record lists his birth as 10 JAN 1828, although Shirley records show his birth year as 1830. He was listed as a runaway male slave age 30 who left with the gun boats in July 1863. Undated report filed pursuant to Act of March 28, 1863 by Francis W. Ware, Charles City Commissioner of Revenue, Auditor of Public Accounts: Runaway and Escaped Slaves, Receipts and Reports, 1863, Library of Virginia Archives. On the night of 18 JUL 1863 Ned joined approximately 18 other slaves in making their way out to Union ships in the James River. He enlisted in the U.S. Navy, serving on the USS Wabash and the USS Ohio. During the blockade of South Carolina he lost his left eye. U.S. Navy Widow's #17176.

The emancipated slaves were left all of Dulings property. Charles City County Will Book No. 3, p 349. Mary gave birth to three more children LIGHTFOOT CHARLES, JOHN WASHINGTON, and NATHANIEL EDLOE before she passed away. The Overseer of the Poor bound out WILLIAM HENRY GOIN, LIGHTFOOT CHARLES, SOLOMON, and CHRISTOPHER to WILLIAM FOLKES. Charles City County Minute Book No. 2, pg. 223.

Info & Sources
Solomon Dorillios, "a Negroe" was transported to Virginia by Thomas Phillips who claimed a 50-acre headright for his importation. The land patent was for land on the south side of the Chickahominy in what was at that time James City County, but is today Charles City County. Patent Book 1, p.216. Historians hold differing views on whether negroes imported to Virginia in the first half of the 17th century served a term as indentured servants for a term of years or were held in hereditary servitude. Thus, Dorillos may not have been a slave. Also, the patent of land in this county does not necessarily mean that Dorillos himself was brought to Charles City.
