  • Notes 
    • Prior to the War of Revolution, a father and five children came from England to America. Two of the sons fell fighting with the colonial army for American independence. One of the remaining three was numbered among the founders of the Mechlenberg colony in NC." Appears to have reached majority by 1737 (land left to brother is left in a trust) - Cashed out circa 1739 having already migrated 50 miles to the south to Edgecombe Precinct, NC. Began acquiring land in the Halifax/Edgecombe, NC area - source Clay Abrams.

      Subsequent to their father's death, the two sons (Edward and William) moved to Halifax Co., NC. Records of several Halifax/Edgecombe Co. deed transactions exist for both men.
