Weapemeoc Division villages (along the Albemarie Sound): Mascoming, Weapemeoc, Chepanoc, and Pasquenoke. Chesapeake Division villages (at the mouth of Chesapeake Bay): Apasus, Skicoak, and Chesepioc. The Chesapeake Division was wiped out by the Powhatan Confederacy in 1607.

 

Incidently, the Moratoc/Mongoack and Neusiok/Neuse on the maps were probably Tuscaroran Iroquois. Evidently, there is no linguistic proof they were Algonquian....
