Noble Ladd, Sr.

Noble must have been born earlier than about 1731 as reported by some sources. His father was born about 1662 which further supports an earlier date of birth for Noble. A Noble Ladd bought 400 acres from Amos Ladd in early 1732 for 20 pounds. Noble witnessed a sale of land by his father to his brother in 1733. In 1735, Noble Ladd, planter, sold 100 acres for 10 pounds.

In Virginia, his plantation was located near the Seven Islands (a rapids) on the Fluvanna (Upper James) River where a ferry was established in 1748. This was located between Scottsville and Bremo Bluff (near the present community of Hardware and the river island known as Big Island), where the river presently divides Buckingham and Fluvanna Counties. On 27 August 1750, he sold one hundred acres of his plantation on the south side of the James River in St. Ann's parish to Peter Jefferson, father of Thomas. The official record reports that Noble resided in the Parish of St. Anne's in Albemarle County while Jefferson lived in the Parish of St. James Northam in Goochland County. The land was in the Parish of St. Ann's on the south side of the James River. (The transaction with Jefferson is found in ALBEMARLE COUNTY (VA) WILLS & DEEDS NO. 1, 1748-1752. pp231-133.) Also, in 1750, Noble gave his son Amos 300 acres of land on the north side of the Fluvanna River in St. Ann's parish.
 
Noble later moved his family southward just across Virginia's border to settle at what was to become known as Ladd's Ford and is now known as Pine Hall, Stokes County, North Carolina. During the Revolutionary War he furnished supplies to the North Carolina troops in Surry County.
 
When he died, he left a 450 acre plantation and at least eight slaves: Chloe, Isaac, Dilse, Dick, Abraham, Doll, Dinah and Jacob. The slaves, some silver, horses, pewter, feather beds, various cattle and his husbandry tools were divided among his children. His youngest son, William, inherited the plantation with the stipulation that Noble's widow and youngest daughter should live with William. Several of his children and grandchildren were to remain in the area.
