About Longshore Lamb

From William F. Medlin, Quaker Families of South Carolina & Georgia, Ben Franklin Press, Page 31.

Between 1799 and 1830, the overwhelming majority of Quakers left South Carolina and Georgia for territory where they could rear their children free from the influence of slavery. The exodus began in 1799 when a few Friends left Georgia for the Miami Valley of Ohio. In 1801, Friends began leaving Bush River for the same area. (A few Bush River Quakers had removed much earlier to Tennessee, where slavery had much less influence than in other Southern states.)  By 1810 that once large Meeting was decimated.  Cane Creek Meeting in Union County removed almost as one body to Ohio, forming up there Caesar's Creek Meeting a few miles from the present city of Wilmington. After 1822, Charleston was the only Monthly Meeting left in either South Carolina or Georgia.

In 1766 Longshore Lamb, a young boy of about 11 years of age, arrived in South Carolina with his parents and siblings.  The Quaker records indicate Thomas Lamb (1721), Alice Longshore Lamb, and their six youngest children were granted a certificate to join Wateree MM, Kershaw County, South Carolina.  This information is consistent with the 1790 Census for South Carolina.


The Bush River MM, Newberry County, South Carolina, disowned Longshore Lamb on October 30, 1779, for marrying a person who was not a Quaker.  A deed dated October 7, 1807, and recorded in Spartanburg County, South Carolina, indicates Longshore Lamb married Sally in 1779.  Longshore was about age 23-25 years when he married.  Longshore Lamb served on a jury in South Carolina in 1796.  Longshore Lamb purchased 163 acres on Frenchman’s Creek of the Enoree River in Union County, South Carolina.  The will of Richard Chesney of Spartanburg County, South Carolina, refers to land in North Carolina once owned by Longshore Lamb.  Longshore Lamb served under Colonel Brandon during the Revolutionary War and was present at the fall of Charleston in 1780.  This was another reason the Quakers disowned Longshore Lamb.


We know little about Sarah, except that she was born about 1758-1763.

Longshore Lamb was the father of the following children. “Decree of Court in John Lamb vs. Martin Lamb”, Legal Document, Courthouse, Caldwell County, Kentucky, March 01, 1848.
