Note

James came to America with his father in 1709. He is listed on the tax rolls for 1720, 1721, 1724 and 1726. He owned a considerable amount of land (750 acres). In his will dated 18 Dec 1761 and filed 11 Jan 1762, he divided his land among four of his sons but did not leave any land to his son Robert. This is made more unusual due to the fact that Robert was the oldest and as such normally receives the largest grant. Robert only received a grant of 1 shilling (a token amount) in the will. I believe that this was due to the fact that earlier Robert had left the family plantation and struck out on his own and was probably in SC by this time. The token amount of money and no land was just to recognize Robert as a son.
