About Guillaume (William) Salle, Sr.

From

Wendell E. Wilson, The Huguenot Ancestry of Jane “Jinny” Sally of Kentucky, http://www.minrec.org/wilson/pdfs/16A.%20%20Sally.pdf

Guillaume Sallé (1704-1790)

Guillaume Sallé, our ancestor, was born in Manakintown in 1704 and married Elizabeth Givaudan, daughter of Antoine Givaudan, in 1727. Guillaume, also known as William, had received “a plantation,” a young mulatto slave boy, and 20 pounds sterling or 5,000 pounds of tobacco in his father's will in 1719.

After the birth of his son Oliver in 1749, Guillaume (William) moved west to what later became Buckingham County. Tax and tithable lists are records. On January 12, 1747, William patented 1200 acres on both sides of Joshua Creek, a branch of the Slate River, at that time, in Albermarle County. Three years later he sold practically all of his and his second wife, Magdalen's holdings in King William Parish. At one time he seems to have owned 2050 acres, but by 1782 he had reduced his holdings to 700 acres.

William was about 83 years old when he died on February 5, 1789. Magdalen seems to have died after 1800 (she may be on the tax list of Lincoln County, Kentucky?). William Salle´ of the Parish of St. Anns, in the county of Albemarle, in a whole series of deeds in May 1750, virtually stripped himself of realty in King William Parish (Cumberland County). In 1771, he advertised for sale, two tracts of land “on the branches of Slate River in the county of Buckingham.” containing 950 acres and 400 acres “with alll necessary houses for cropping and is convenient to Church, Mill and Courthouse.” (Virginia Gazette)

William was taxed in 1782 on 700 acres in Buckingham. He was taxed one person in Buckingham annually through 1789, then the tax lists of 1790 records tax imposed on “Wm. Sallie Est.” Magdelaine is listed through the year 1800 and still carried on the realty lists in 1803. -------------------- http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/3955851/person/346841515
