Today's Chowanoke Tribal members descend from Chowanoke family members whose ancestors originated from the Reservation. These community members can be found on various court, state, apprentiship, church and governmental records. These families intermarried and provided the nucleus for other smaller communities located on, and near the Chowanoke's original lands.


Some of theses families include Hiter (Hoyter), Beasely, Pushin, Reading, Greene, Butler, Manley, Robbins, Saunders, Martin, Rooks, Bennett, Hall, Bass, and Weaver. This list isn't all inclusive, nor suggests that having a particular surname ties individuals to the Chowanoke community.


The Chowanoke people are bound by blood, culture, community, and origins.
