ANDREWS OR LIBERTY HALL

Benjamin Andrews arrived in the Province in November 1673 and on 27 June 1674 a warrant was issued to lay out to him 100 acres.[4] This was evidently laid out on Ashley River for the grant to Thomas Rose of Fetteressa in 1677 bounds on Benjamin An- drews.[5] Another warrant to Benjamin Andrews was issued 19 April 1679 for 240 acres,[6] and on 14 June 1679 a grant was made to Benjamin Andrews and Elizabeth Brant for 270 acres on Ashley River.[7] This grant either escheated, or was transferred to JOSEPH OLDYS for a new grant was later made to Joseph Oldys for the 270 acres, and under his will was devised equally to his son Joseph and his three daughters Arabella, Elizabeth, and Margaret Oldys. Arabella Oldys married William Cantey Junr. and on the division of the plantation received one fourth or 67 ½ acres, to which was added the two fourths of her sisters Elizabeth and Margaret ac- quired by her husband from them, and for the whole aggregating 202 ½ acres a new grant was on 3 November 1703 made to William Cantey Junr.[8] The motive for obtaining a new grant seems to have been to escape accumulated quit rents, for the new grant declares that it is free of such and that the quit rents would com- mence at a future date. On 8 April 1704 William Cantey Junr. "Yeoman" and Arabella his wife conveyed the 202 ½ acres to An- drew Russ;[9] who on 20 May 1709 conveyed the same to Jonathan Fitch Senr.[10]
