William I left his name many times on the records of North Carolina. In 1723 he was one of 137 jurymen for Bertie County. In 1724 the Council held at Edenton, N.C., heard the petition of William Whitfield "praying for the recovery of certain lands from one John Holmes being 600 acres lying at Beverly's on Meherrine".

August 1732 William appointed Thomas Jones his attorney in a case against William Badham of Edenton.
