About Governor Robert Daniell

http://paynedaniel2.com/robertofcarolina/D2.htm#i11190 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Daniells (originally D'Anvers or Danyers) are of English descent. Their genealogy is directly traceable to the Knights of the Norman conquest.

The Honorable Robert Daniell departed England in 1669, (via Barbados and Bermuda) bound for Port Royal Island, South Carolina. His voyage ended at the mouth of the Kiaway River in late 1669. Here was established the settlement of Old Charles Town where he became the Colonial Governor of South and North Carolina.

Prior to leaving England, he was issued a Landgrave (August 12, 1698) which entitled him to 48,000 acres of land, making him one of the largest landowners in the Carolinas.

After settling in the Charles Town area, Daniell involved himself in shipping and political affairs until the success of the settlement aroused the jealousy of the Spaniards in Florida. In 1702, Daniell (who led naval forces) and Governor Moore (who led land forces) attacked Florida. Daniell took the Spanish Settlements of St. John and St Marys in route to St. Augustine.

Throughout his career in the Carolinas, he was a staunch Royalist, serving in the Eighth Assembly, Eleventh Assembly, and the Fourteenth Assembly. He was a judge, Chief Justice, tax commissioner, a Captain, Major, and Colonel in the Militia.

In his Capacity as Governor of South and North Carolina, he held the ranks of Lieutenant General and Vice Admiral.

He died on his plantation, Daniell's Island, South Carolina, between May 1 and May 18, 1717. He was survived by his wife, Martha, and five children. His remains were later removed to St. Phillips Churchyard, Charles Town, South Carolina. -------------------- Martha Daniell Logan (1704-1779), colonial teacher and gardener, was born in St. Thomas Parish, S.C., the 2nd child of Robert Daniell and his second wife, Martha Wainwright. Her father, who may originally have been a Virginian, had arrived in South Carolina from Barbados in 1679; already propertied, he increased his holdings in real estate, slaves, and ships over the years. In 1704 and 1705, he had a stormy term as lieutenant governor of North Carolina; and he served twice in the same capacity in South Carolina from 1715 through 1717.
