JOHN1 PERRY KIRKLAND was born about 1784 in South Carolina, as he indicated to census takers in later years.  Based on the scant evidence available, the compiler believes JOHN1 originated in Beaufort County, St. Peters Parish, South Carolina.  Two men named JOHN KIRKLAND lived in that county in 1790, either of whom could have been his father, according to the 1790 Federal census.  In 1800, the only Beaufort ‘KIRKLAND’ census record is for DIANNA and indicates that she had one son under 10 and two sons 16-26 years of age, as well as two daughters age 10-16 and one 16-26.  She was over 45 years herself and was probably the widow of the younger JOHN-1790 and the mother of  JOHN1.  The older daughter was evidently named Mary, who appears in this interesting record from Chatham Co. Georgia… [KETTLES-STAFFORD Indenture - 1802]

By 1810, the Beaufort census shows the additional households of JOHN and WILLIAM, while Mrs. D. KIRKLAND had one young son 10-16 still at home.  JOHN-1810 is shown having one son under 10 and one daughter under 10, which fits approximately with the accepted family composition of our JOHN1 .  In 1820, the only two KIRKLAND households in Beaufort are those of  NANCY, who was possibly the widow of WILLIAM (b. abt. 1780-83), and of JOSHUA (b. abt 1793) who must have been the third brother, while JOHN and WILLIAM are not listed.  From this, we assume WILLIAM had died or moved away and JOHN had migrated to Georgia in the 1810-20 interval.   [JOSHUA_App for Bounty Land_1855]

The notes of Martin C. Kirkland Jr., a descendant of JOHN’s son Robert L. Kirkland, states that JOHN was born in Beaufort Co. SC and that his brothers were WILLIAM and JOSHUA.  While no proof is offered, this conclusion by an independent researcher lends a degree of comfort with our conclusions.  Perhaps Martin had access to oral family tradition or a bible, so did not rely on impartial evidence to make this determination.

The census evidence does not prove that our JOHN1 originated in Beaufort Co. SC, but seems to support that conclusion with a moderate degree of probability.  Sadly, the courthouse  records (deeds, wills, etc.) for Beaufort County were burned during Sherman’s march through South Carolina, so are not available to prove the origin of  JOHN1.  In addition, the loss of the 1810 census records for Georgia makes it impossible to rule out our JOHN1 being in Georgia in 1810.  A so-called  recreated census for Georgia has been compiled based upon tax records, etc., which places JOHN1 in Camden Co. Georgia by 1810, but the compiler has not viewed any original record which shows him there that early.  However, this remains a subject for further research; additional records are continually being indexed and made available for study. 

Recent Y-chromosome DNA testing has confirmed that the compiler shares a common male ancestor, within seven-ten generations or so, with contemporary men, some of  whom were born in the Savannah River region of South Carolina to well-documented Kirkland families.  This scientific evidence  provides an additional degree of comfort with assumptions about our family origins.

EDWARD KIRKLAND (c.1712-1770), one of the early migrants to the Savannah River region of South Carolina had a son named JOSHUA and a grandson named JOHN.  [King Branch-Pipe Creek]  These relationships are proven by the recorded will of EDWARD.  The recurrence of the name “Joshua” in 1820, while not proving a familial relationship, does offer a clue to the probable kinship between JOSHUA of Beaufort-1820 and the older man EDWARD.  Also, since JOHN1 named his first-born son “Reuben”, the compiler is led to  believe that JOHN1 was probably a relative, perhaps a great-nephew, of REUBEN KIRKLAND SR., Revolutionary Soldier of Barnwell County SC, which adjoins Beaufort to the northwest on the old maps of the period.  The kinship of REUBEN SR. and EDWARD has been established with acceptable certainty, based on land ownership records.   Refer to Dr. Jim Peacock’s book, Kirkland Family Roots for more on EDWARD and other Kirklands of SC and elsewhere in the southeastern US.

If one accepts the available indirect information regarding the kinship of JOHN1 to REUBEN and EDWARD, then his ancestry can be established with some certainty based on the research of others, and his pedigree would therefore be as follows:

                JOHN1 < JOHN < JOHN < JOSHUA < EDWARD < RICHARD(c.1670-1743, Maryland and VA)
Based on all available evidence at this time, this seems the most probable lineage for our JOHN1.


RICHARD KIRKLAND and his family, of Maryland and Virginia have been documented in many sources,   Richard was the father of Edward and is believed to be our earliest ancestor in America, based on all records the compiler has seen.


JOHN1 married JANE PENELOPE WEBB (b. abt. 1790, SC –d. abt 1857, FL).  Evidently they resided in SC for several years, bearing three children there.  Then between 1810-1812, they migrated to Camden County GA near the present town of Woodbine and lived there many years,  several of their children being born there.  A court record exists of a man named “J. B. Kirtland”, who had died when the case was heard in 1814 .  This may refer to the father of our JOHN, who apparently died or left Beaufort SC before 1800, but it is not clear.   JOHN1 was a timberman, farmer and cattleman and owned over 100 acres on the north bank of the ‘Great Satilla’ River, as shown on a survey plat dated July 16, 1821.  JOHN served in the Georgia militia, Camden Co. in June-July 1817.  He also served as Justice of the Peace for District 270, Camden Co. from 1820-1824.    In addition to his other work, JOHN provided estate appraisal services {APPR1} {APPR2} to the County Court in Camden.  Like any public-spirited citizen, JOHN also served on many juries when court was held.

  About 1825, JOHN and his family were among the earliest settlers of Florida during the Territorial Period, moving across the St. Marys River into what is now Nassau County and residing there until after 1840, even though he evidently maintained his residence in Camden as well.  JOHN continued his public service role as a Justice of the Peace in Nassau Co. during 1827.  Both JOHN and his son Reuben were among the signers of the Petition for Division of Territory, which led to the partition of Nassau Co. out of Duval.  JOHN served as a private in Thigpen’s Company, Florida Mounted Militia during the Indian Wars and was awarded bounty land for his service.  JOHN was evidently a caring family man; he once bought a herd of cattle from his son-in-law, Lewis Daniels, then essentially gave them back to his daughter Mary Ann a month later. [1830 Nassau FL census]    [1840 Nassau FL census]

In the 1850 census, JOHN, JANE and several members of their family were living in Putnam Co. FL, near present-day Hawthorne.  The specific location is not known, but JOHN owned two different parcels in western Putnam county during the 1850’s.  He also bought 40 acres of land for $20. in eastern Alachua Co. in 1858 at a Sheriff’s sale, which had been seized from a John S. Perry and Sarah Perry.  This is the sole record found by the compiler which shows JOHN’s middle initial, while none have been found which prove his middle name of ‘PERRY’, but the frequency of recurrence in various branches of the family offer sufficient proof, in the compiler’s opinion.  The surname ‘Perry’ in this land record causes one to wonder whether this John S. Perry was a relative and ‘Perry’ was perhaps the maiden surname of JOHN’s mother DIANA.  John S. Perry was living in Marion Co. by 1860, but with a wife other than Sarah.  One can imagine various scenarios which may have played out here – perhaps further research will clarify the situation.  JOHN’s son OHP Kirkland also bought land from the government in the same area.  See area map for the location of these parcels. 

JANE apparently died between 1856-58, as indicated by two factors: (1) the relocation of daughter Marianne and her family to Levy County from Putnam County during that interval; (2) JOHN sold his land in Putnam Co. by deed in 1859, with no release of dower by JANE.  Family lore is divided as to where JOHN resided afterward.   Martin C. Kirkland Jr. wrote that JOHN relocated to the Umatilla FL vicinity near his son Robert L. Kirkland and died there on 14 Feb 1860, with burial in Umatilla Cemetery.  This is given credence by the fact that JOHN’s daughter Jane and granddaughter Tereza, who lived with JOHN and mother JANE while in Putnam Co., were living next door to Robert L. in the Sumter Co. census of 1860.  Others believe that JOHN relocated to Levy Co. FL with his son OHP Kirkland and is buried in Kirkland Cemetery near Rocky Hammock with many of his children and grandchildren.


Children of JOHN KIRKLAND and JANE WEBB are:


1.  REUBEN (“Rheuben”, “Rubin”) W.2 KIRKLAND; b. abt. 1805, SC;  m. MARTHA L. (LEE?), a native of Florida, about 1830.  For $250, Reuben and William Wilkee purchased 640 acres of land on the King’s Road in Nassau Co. FL on 3 Dec 1835.  Reuben later bought out Wilkee’s 320-acre share for $200 in Feb 1837.  Reuben was apparently a timber farmer and cattleman throughout his life.  He purchased a slave in 1841 to assist with the work on his extensive farmland.  He signed  (R.W. Kirkland) a Notice of Certification on the final page of the 1840 Nassau Co. Census.  He served in several units of the Florida Militia during the Indian Wars, achieving the rank of Sergeant in 1836.  [Piles Co_1837]  [Mason’s Co_1837]      Reuben died after 1880 and is believed to be buried in the old Kirkland Cemetery (now destroyed) on the banks of the St. Marys River near Mill Creek in western Nassau County, Florida.  Reuben and Martha apparently had two children, both sons:
