Notes


"Just prior to the American Revolutionary War, Lewis and his brothers Sampson and Spencer, Jr.migrated into the backcountry of South Carolina.


Sampson BOBO's family moved to Craven (later Spartanburg County), South Carolina around 1773, following a similar grant from the King of England.


"George the Third, by the Grace of God, of Great Britain, France and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, and so forth, To all whom these Presence shall come, Greeting: Know Ye, That We, of our special Grace, certain Knowledge and mere Motion, have given and granted , and by these Presence for Us, our Heirs and Successors, DO GIVE AND GRANT unto Sampson Bobo, his Heirs and Assigns, a Plantation or Tract of Land containing four hundred and fifty acres in Craven County on a small branch the waters of Tyger River Bounded on all Sides by Vacant Land_______and hath such Shape, Form and Marks, as appear by a Plat thereof, hereunto annexed.........Given under the Great Seal of Our said Province: Witness His Excellency Lord Charles Grenville Montagu, Governor and Commander in Chief in and over Our said Province of South Carolina this Eleventh Day of February Anno. Dom. 1773 in the thirteenth Year of Our reign. Signed by his Excellency the Governor in Council, Montagu"
(from a copy of an original document in Grant Book 28, p. 261, and certified by Frank O. Thornton, Secretary of State for South Carolina)


...surveyed 1 April 1772 by James Wofford and the plat delivered 21 October 1774 to James Samples Jr. for Sampson Bobo. (Leonardo Andrea #11)


The family of Lewis BOBO settled in Berkley (later Union) County, South Carolina, around 1770 following a receipt of a royal grant of land.


No record of a land grant to Spencer, Jr. has been located. However, his name does appear as an adjoining land owner on the plate of Ezekial Backler in Craven County-in 1775. The appearance of his name on his document indicates that he had purchased lands in that area before 1775.


An additional son of Spencer BOBO, Absalom would wait until after the war to remove to South Carolina. His first purchase of land must have occurred before 1791, when he sold (for 30-pounds-sterling) 250- acres in Laurens County, South Carolina, to John Frederick Harmoning situated "on the draught of Cedar Shoal Creek, the waters of-the Enoree River, and bounding N.E. on Sampson BOBO.


This would leave by 1790, one son of Spencer BOBO, Gabriel BOBO in Virginia and his sole daughter Mary Elizabeth BOBO, now married to John HOLT and residing in Orange County, North Carolina, since the 1700's.


The first federal census occurred in 1790, and its data reflect the following:


Absalom BOBO residing in Laurens County, South Carolina, with no sons over-sixteen, no sons under sixteen, and one female, and three slaves;


Sampson BOBO, residing in Spartanburg County, South Carolina, with 2 sons over sixteen, five sons under sixteen, and four females;


Spencer BOBO, Jr., residing also in Spartanburg County, South Carolina, with no sons, and two females; and


Lewis BOBO residing in Union County, South Carolina, with two sons over sixteen, one son under sixteen, five females, and two slaves."


Lewis and Sampson had some land transactions in Bute County, North Carolina as early as 1769. From the records it appears that Sampson lived for a short time in Bute County, North Carolina before migrating to what is now Spartanburg County, South Carolina."


Due to boundry changes Orange/Culpepper & Caroline counties, the Bobo’s live in the same areaas counties changed.Source:"Huguenots in the Back Country: The Bobo Family of France, VA, & SC by Bryan Scott Johnson


On 11 May 1786 Sampson Bobo awarded "Four pounds. fourteen shillings, and three pence farthing...for Militia duty, since the fall of Charleston in Brandon's regiment." (McCall, James, Auditor General, Revolutionary Claims Index Book, Aug. 20, 1783 and Aug. 31, 1786. Copied by Janie Revill, Genealogical Publishing Co., Baltimore, MD, 1964)"

Notes


"RICHARD STOCKTON of Princeton, New Jersey; b. in London, England, probably 1654; d. 1709, at Princeton. He accompanied his father from England to Long Island 1656. In 1701, purchased from William PENN an estate of 6000 acres which included the entire present borough of Princeton, where he settled in August, 1695; built “Morven” which has been the family homestead for over 215 years (1701-1916) and which is now occupied by his gr., gr., gr., gd. son Bayard STOCKTON; m. 8th November, 1691, Susannah Witham ROBINSON, b. 29th November, 1668, d. April, 1749, dau. of Robert and Ann WITHAM and widow of Thomas ROBINSON. "


From New Jersey Biographical Sketches, 1665-1800 Name: Richard Stockton Bio: "His son Richard removed from Flushing to Piscataway, and thence (in 1696) to Princeton, buying 400 acres, and in 1701 bought of William Penn 4,450 acres more, in and about the present Princeton.


He died in 1709, leaving six sons--Richard, Samuel, Joseph, Robert, John, Thomas. His estate being divided soon after, the homestead, now known as "Morven," fell to John, who became an influential man in the community. He was a Judge of the Somerset Common Pleas, and was a warm friend of Princeton College.--Princeton and its Institutions, by John F. Hageman, I., 33-9.


Richard Stockton, son of John, was born at Princeton, October 1, 1730, was one of the first class graduates from the College of New Jersey, in 1748, studied law under David Ogden, was licensed in 1754 as an attorney, in 1758 as a counsellor, and in 1764 as sergeant, his practice meantime becoming co-extensive with the Province, and even reaching beyond its limits.--Ib., 78; Provincial Courts of New Jersey, by Richard S. Field, 192; Life of Com. Robert F. Stockton, 9-10; Sketch of Life of Richard Stockton. by William A. Whitehead, N. J. Hist Soc. Proc., January, 1877; Rules of Supreme Court, N. J., 1885, Appendix, by G. D. W. Vroom, 54, 59.


In 1764, writing to his former law student, Joseph Read, he suggested as the readiest solution of the troubles between England and her Colonies the election of some bright Americans to Parliament (Reed's Reed, I., 30); but a year later, during the controversy over the Stamp Act, he took the positive ground that Parliament had no authority over the American Colonists; so rapidly did public sentiment develop in those times.--N. J. Hist. Proc., 149. In 1766 he went to England, where he spent a year, mingling in the highest circles, and had much to do with persuading Dr. Witherspoon to accept the Presidency of Princeton College.--Hist. of College of N. J., by John MacLean, I., 297, 385; Provincial Courts, 192-6. Appointed to the Council in 1768 (see ante, page 59), on the recommendation of Governor Franklin, he stood so well with the Governor that six years later he was commissioned one of the Justices of the Supreme Court, as above, to succeed Judge Reed, removed to the West Indies.


The affairs of his country were evidently on his heart and mind during these troublesome times, and under date of December 12, 1774, he drafted and sent to Lord Dartmouth "An Expedient for the Settlement of the American Disputes, humbly submitted to the consideration of his Majesty's Ministers," in which he suggested substantially a plan of self-government for America, independent of Parliament, without renouncing allegiance to the Crown.--Historical Magazine, November, 1868, 228. He retained his position in the Council until the end of royal government in New Jersey, and attended the meetings of that body as late as November 24, 1775.--Minutes Provincial Congress, etc., 323.


He was elected to the Continental Congress, June 22, 1776.--Ib., 473. Six days later the New Jersey delegates took their seats in Congress, in time to hear the closing debate on the Declaration of Independenc, and Mr. Stockton is said to have made a "short but energetic speech" in favor of the measure.--Works of John Adams, III., 53-8; Field's Provincial Courts, 197. While he was still attending to his duties in Congress, a large number of his friends and admirers at home favored him for Governor, and on the first ballot in the Legislature (August 30, 1776) the votes were equally divided between him and William Livingston, who was chosen the next day.--Minutes Joint Meeting, passim; Sedgwick's Livingston, 205-6. Gordon alleges this whimsical reason for the preference: "Mr. Stockton having just at the moment (of the ballot) refused to furnish his team of horses for the service of the public, and the Legislature coming to the knowledge of it, the choice of Mr. Livingston took place immediately."--History of Revolution, ed. 1789, II., 108. The true reason doubtless was that it was thought best to have a man of some military instincts in the Governor's chair, and Livingston was then in camp. Be that as it may, the Legislature the same day (August 31) elected Mr. Stockton to be the first Chief Justice of the new State, but he declined, preferring just then the more active career of a Congressman.--Minutes Joint Meeting, passim; Sedgwick's Livingston, 206. On September 25, 1776.


Congress appointed him on a committee of two to visit the Northern army, and he set out immediately. He was greatly affected at the unfortunate condition of the patriot soldiers. Writing from Saratoga, October 28, to Abraham Clark, he says the New Jersey soldiers were "marching with cheerfulness, but great part of the men barefooted and barelegged. My heart melts with compassion for my brave countrymen who are thus venturing their lives in the public, service, and yet are so distressed. There is not a single shoe nor stocking to be had in this part of the world, or I would ride a hundred miles through the woods and purchase them with my own money."--American Archives, 5th Series, II., 561, 1256, 1274.
