Dear Charlotte

I've generated an accumulation file on my possible line of paternal decent,

including information from your website (hope you don't mind). I hope

you'll find the info useful and hope that you might have some additional

info, especially on Israel in NC (you might have additional information

whether he's really related to Nathaniel or not). Any comments or

information you have would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Michael Baxter

Notes:

1)

Cheney Boyse is listed as an "ancient planter." The term

"Ancient Planter" is applied to those persons who arrived in Virginia before

1616, remained for a period of three years, paid their passage, and survived

the massacre of 1622. They received the first patents of land in the new

world as authorized by Sir Thomas Dale in 1618 for their personal adventure.

The early settlers were often granted "headrights" or parcels of land for

each male immigrant they were able to bring over.

Title: Prot Books, Port of London; Searcher; Exports from

London by English Merchants

Dates: 29 Dec. 1674 - 28 Dec. 1675

References: Lists of Exchequer, Queen's Rememberancer; Port

Books, Pt. 1, 1565-1700, p.24

Examined 22 Aug-14 Oct. 1961 Exposures: 252

Parchment Book, approx. 10" x14", consisting of 400

unnumbered folios. The book is in a very poor state. It contains hardly

one perfect folio, and nearly one-third of the folios are badly torn; of

each of the last 80 folios barely half remains. The book therefore does not

now give a complete picture of London's exports in 1675; but enough remains

to show the importance of Virginia's trade.

The book was made by the Searcher, who examined the goods

packed on board. The entries are therefore arranged in "blocks" of

commodities packed in each ship and labeled for their various destinations.

"Since the pulbication of "Hottens's Immigrants," no

successful effort has been made to gather toghether, in one volume, a list

of the thousands of persons who came into Virginia during the early period

of her life.

The records of the Land Office in Richmond remain the only

source from which these names can now be obtained...

Nearly twenty-five thousand names have been collected from

the original records and arranged in alphabetical order. The search has

been systematic and thorough, and every neme from 1623 (when the records

begin) down to 1666 has been noted, with the date of appearance. ...

From: 1623-1666 Early Virginia Immigrants, Greer, George

Cabell (Clerk Virginia State Land Office), Baltimore, Geneological

Publishing Co., 1960. (copy obtained from the Library of California State

College at Fullerton).

NOTE: a) headrights could be claimed on anyone entering

Virginia, b) if the claimant paid for the individuals passage, a period of

indenture might have been agreed upon, c) abuses of the headright system

were widespread, d) headrights often were not claimed at the actual time of

entrance to Virginia.

NOTE: No Baxters are found to have claimed headrights in

Virginia as listed in Greer's text.

========================================================================

A List of the Taxables,

Pitt County, North Carolina

for the year 1763

Transcribed By Roger Kammerer

The 1763 tax enumerators listed the white polls and black

polls in two

separate documents. Follows is a transcript of the white

polls list in

the North Carolina Archives, # ___________; the list of

black polls

could not be located. The extant list shows totals of blacks

and whites

on its last page. Edward Salter, Junior Clerk of Court,

testified to the

authenticity of the list, and probably acted as scribe for

this bound

copy as submitted to the office of the Secretary of State in

1763. The

handwriting is clear and legible, leaving only blobs or aged

paper to

cause the transcriber much difficulty.

Typesetting conventions: Punctuation has been added for

readability.

This transcription uses commas to separate the surname of

the tax payer,

and semi-colons to separate the other names on the same

line. No commas

have been used to offset titles such as Jr., Sr., or

Constable (spelled

Counstable). Spelling has been retained as in the original.

Questionable

letters or words are indicated with editorial comments in

brackets.

of King George II against him and again he lost. He moved to the adjoining

county of Pitt and there made a deed of gift to his children Stephen,

Sarah, David, Theophilus, and Rebecca in 1763, and the next year he gave

most of the remainder of his personal property to them His eldest son Israel

was not named in either of the deeds, he having already "quit the nest" some

six or more years earlier and settled on the Peedee river in present

Marlboro County, S. C. Rebecca, the youngest, was not named in the second

Theophilus appears as a private on the muster roll of Capt.

Simon Herring's company of Col. Lewis Henry DeRosset's regiment of foot

soldiers of Johnston County, dated October 5, 1755. This was at the time of

King George's War and the regiment was raised to curtail activities along

the North Carolina coast. Courtesy of Elmer O. Parker and Charlotte Hensley.

7)

.After Dobbs County was formed from Johnston, Theophilus

acquired over 600 acres on Falling Creek, about ten miles west of present

Kinston, Lenoir County. By 1770 he had followed his elder brother Israel to

the Peedee. Theophilus, after his arrival in the Cheraws, joined in 1778 the

St. David' s Society, which had been organized to establish public schools

and seminaries along the Peedee river. To subdue the rebellious colonists

who were yearning for freedom from the domination of the mother country.

Britain, during the first three years of the war, concentrated its military

operations against the northern colonies but without success. Then she

decided to shift her efforts to the southward. To meet this threat South

Carolina found it necessary to draft its able bodied men for service in its

militia. Theophilus was drafted in Georgetown District in 1778, but his

16-year old son Israel, then not subject to draft, volunteered to go as his

father's substitute and marched to Haddrell's Point near Charleston and was

discharged after a month's service. He afterward volunteered and marched

under Gen. William Moultrie to Purrysburgh and on May 3, 1779, was in a

fight with the British at Coosawhatchie bridge; later was under Gen.

Francis "Swamp Fox" Marion. After the fall of Charleston in May 1780, the

British sent officers through the countryside and compelled the conquered

males to swear allegiance to King George III. John Harrison, a native of

Virginia who lived on Lynches Creek in Camden District, joined the British

in Savannah in 1779, and in june 1780; Lord Cornwallis gave him a commission

as major commandant of S. C. Rangers. He enrolled several hundred men, many

under duress, among them Theophilus and his brother David who had followed

him to the Peedee. Before April 1781, David was " a prisoner with the

rebels", possibly a defection --something that Cornwallis told Lord Rawdon

he feared. Theophilus was not so fortunate for he died in British hands on

January 13, 1781, leaving his small family to face destitution. Courtesy of

Elmer O. Parker and Charlotte Hensley.

. Young Stephen, son of Theophilus of the Cheraws on the

Peedee, went down into present Colleton County and in the fork of the

Saltcatchers was savagely beaten by William Davis on July 24, 1771; hired

Thomas Phepoe, a Charleston attorney and loyalist during the war to sue for

lb500 damages, but Davis ' skilled lawyer John Colcock (though he later lost

the life of another cilent Isaac Hayne) obtained a general demurrer on

grounds "there are so many causes it would be tedious to recite them. Davis

was a man of considerable influence and during the Revolution got himself a

commission as lieutenant colonel of the upper Granville County regiment of

S. C. militia. Stephen, who was probably born about 1752 near present

Kinston, N. C., apparently returned to the place of his nativity and married

a Hunnieut ladyof the long established family of that name that resided

first in Johnston, then in Dobbs after it was formed in 1758, and finally in

Lenoir when it was created in 1791. He appears to have lived in Dobbs until

after the birth of his first two children--Elizabeth, about 1785, and

Stephen, about 1787 then returned to Colleton County where a daughter Mary

Ann was born on January 22, 1790, and a son John H. in 1795. Courtesy of

A List of the Taxables,

Pitt County, North Carolina

for the year 1763

Transcribed By Roger Kammerer

The 1763 tax enumerators listed the white polls and black

polls in two

separate documents. Follows is a transcript of the white

polls list in

the North Carolina Archives, # ___________; the list of

black polls

could not be located. The extant list shows totals of blacks

and whites

on its last page. Edward Salter, Junior Clerk of Court,

testified to the

authenticity of the list, and probably acted as scribe for

this bound

copy as submitted to the office of the Secretary of State in

1763. The

handwriting is clear and legible, leaving only blobs or aged

paper to

cause the transcriber much difficulty.

Typesetting conventions: Punctuation has been added for

readability.

This transcription uses commas to separate the surname of

the tax payer,

and semi-colons to separate the other names on the same

line. No commas

have been used to offset titles such as Jr., Sr., or

Constable (spelled

Counstable). Spelling has been retained as in the original.

Questionable

letters or words are indicated with editorial comments in

BAXTER, WILLIAM 1745-1787 TATTNALL

William Baxter was born in North Carolina about 1745, and

about the time of the close of the Revolution moved to Barnwell District

(but at that time, Orangeburg District) in South Carolina where he died in

1787. His wife was name Catherine; maiden name unknown. They had only two

children:

1. Levicy b. 1770, m. Thomas Griffin.

2. Theophilus b. 1777, m. Mary Unknown.

William Baxter served one year, 1781-1782, in the North

Carolina Line in the Revolutionary War, being a private in Capt. Bailey's

company, 10th Regiment, commanded by Col Abraham S. Lane (Vol. IV). See p.

100, "Roster of Soliders from North Carolina in the American Revolution."

The estate of William Baxter was partitioned in

Barnwell District, S.C. Jan. 23, 1788, between the widow Catherine and the

three above-named children. In 1805 or soon after, this family all moved to

Tattnall County, Georgia. Church records, poorly-kept however, of Beard's

Creek Baptist (now Primitive Baptist) Church in Tattnall County, show the

daughter, Mrs. Griffin and the son Theophilus were baptized into the

membership of the church before 1808; church records as kept for the early

years do not show date any of the members were received into the church; an

1808 church roll shows their names and that they were received by baptism.

The curch minutes show trouble arose between Mrs. Griffin and her

sister-in-law, Mrs. Mary Baxter, and that Mrs. Griffin expressed her sorrow

for what she had said about her sister-in-law buth the latter and her

husband refused to be satisfied, whereupon they were expelled Sept. 13,

1808. Thomas Griffin was also a member and died in 1812, and his widow was

dismissed by letter March 20, 1813 and transferred her membership to Ceder

Creek Church in the same county.
