General Notes:

FROM: Dennis Lee's Genforum Post Edward came to NC from England in approximately 1767. An original ancestor had a huge land grant given to him that covered most of North and South Carolina (???). In 1767 Edward bought land from Samuel Porter (SC 1772, Vol. 11, pg. 435 from the South Carolina Magazine of Ancestral Research, Dallas, TX, Public Library, R929.3757/s726).

This is apparently the 200 or so acres "on both sides of Fishing Creek, above Mary Smith's land" in Mecklenburg Co, NC, later Craven Co, SC, and York Co, SC. This land was originally granted (in 1766) to Samuel Porter and sold to Edward in 1767. Edward died before 21 Nov 1808, because his land had been passed on to his son, John, who in turn sold it to Edward's other son, Henry.

Edward married Susannah Bazil on 7 Feb 1737 in Anne Arundel Co., All Hallow's Parish, MD.
