Notes


Born about 1745. He lived in Williamsburg District until about 1770, at which time he moved to Goose Creek in Charleston District.


HEADS OF FAMILIES AT THE FIRST CENSUS OF THE UNITED STATES TAKEN IN THE YEAR 1790 SOUTH CAROLINA CHARLESTON DISTRICT, BERKLEY COUNTY, ST. JOHNS PARISH. CHARLESTON DISTRICT, ST. JAMES GOOSE CREEK PARISH.
Name of head of family: McCants, Nath
Free white males of 16 years and upward, including heads of families: 2
Free white males under 16 years: 2
Free white females, including heads of families: 3
All other free persons: 12


1790 Census neighbors: Martin, Lindsay, Hugh S. Winter, Nath. McCants, Sarah Blackman, Zach. & John Dehay, Amhert Danelly, John Dupont, Hamilton. The 1790 Census lists in the entire parish 118 heads of families, 158 free white males 16 years and older including heads of families, 79 free white males under 16, 202 free white females including heads of families, 15 other free persons, and 2,333 slaves, totaling 2,787 persons.


The birth mother of Nathaniel is in dispute - was it Agnes McKnealy or Martha Jane Scott? His records indicate he was born between 1745/1755, as he had a son b by 1772. (1790 census) That he used Scott as a middle name for his sons, and named a daughter Martha Jane indicates a strong affiliation to Martha Jane Scott as his mother, but the date recorded when she (widow Jackson) turned her Jackson Estate over to Nathaniel's father is 1761, possibly the date they married.
If his mother is Agnes McKnealy then she prob.died when he was quite young.


"American Revolution Roster Fort Sullivan (later Fort Moultrie) 1776-1780 Battle of Fort Sullivan" pub by Fort Sullivan Chapter DAR (SC). Nathaniel McCants YB; AA-4898; PI (1745-9 Jul 1816) SC mil; at fall of Charleston in 80; m. Elizabeth Gautier.

There is also a record of receipt to James Eady Senior for beef and supplies provided to the Southern Army commanded by Major General Green. An endorsement was made in the Charleston District for supplies to the Francis Marion Brigade.


In 1787 Nathaniel was one of 7 reps from St. James Goose Creek to the state convention to ratify the newly drawn Federal Constitution, and SC was the 8th state to approve.


In the 1790 census, Nathaniel is listed of St. James, Goose Creek, with a wife and five children. 1790 census: 2 m o/16; 2 m u/16; 3f and 16 slaves.


In 1795 he purchased Bannister Down Plantation. This 1500 acre plantation was located in St. John Parish, Berkeley Co.

Rand McNally Road Atlas for 1996 shows Goose Creek, S.C., to be just Northeast of Charleston between US Highway 52 and the west bank of the Cooper River.


Berkeley County was named for two of the Lords Proprietors of Carolina, Lord John Berkeley (d. 1678) and Sir William Berkeley (d. 1677). The county was orginally named in 1682, and at one time it included the parishes of St. John Berkeley, St. James Goose Creek, St. James Santee, St. Stephen, and St. Thomas and St. Denis. In 1769 this area became part of Charleston District, and it did not become a separate county again until 1882. The county seat was Mount Pleasant from 1882 until 1895, when it was moved to Moncks Corner. This area was settled in the late seventeenth century by English and French Huguenot planters and their African slaves. Many of the old rice plantations are now covered by the waters of Lake Moultrie, which was built in the 1940s as part of the Santee-Cooper hydroelectric project.


Two famous Revolutionary War generals were residents of the area: William Moultrie (1730-1805) and Francis Marion (1732-1795), known as the Swamp Fox. Henry Laurens (1724-1792), president of the Continental Congress, resided at Mepkin Plantation, which many years later was purchased by publisher Henry Luce (1898-1967). Luce and his wife, writer and diplomat Clare Boothe Luce (1903-1987), are buried at Mepkin, which is now a Trappist monastery.

Hi Josie, There were no Gotea's listed. We struck gold with McCants though...

I looked for Gautier, as listed above, but found none.


After Lincoln's War on the Southern States, the lower part of the parish lost much of its population. Many families moved into Charleston or to other sections. The fields grew up and many fine houses tumbled down or were burned.

Reference: B. The MacNauchtan Saga. by V. V. McNitt. Published in two volumes by Hampden Hills Press, Palmer, Mass., 1951. Reprinted in 1981. A story book history of an ancient clan and its branches, with the brief biographies of prominant MacNaughtons, McKnights, McNutts, and McNitts.


This source presents most acceptable account of family movements from Galloway, Scotland, through N. Ireland to Massachusetts, Virginia, and Nova Scotia. Most of earlier references omit any connections with Covenantois in Galloway, 1640-1720, and promote a brother relationship between Alexander, the colonizer and William of Nova Scotia, largely at instigation of Francis Augustus MacNutt in 1895-1897 when he was seeking Palpal Envoy status in Rome.


Clan MacNauchtan becomes McNutt Family of Augusta, Virgina
The Augusta County, Virginia family with the surname McNutt had its beginnings in the surnames of McNitt, MacNaucht and MacNauchtan and can be traced back through Northern Ireland (1720-1656) and Scotland (1650-1200).


In Roman times, Scotland, known then as Caledonia, was occupied chiefly by the Picts, a Celtic race. The Romans, unable to conquer the Picts, controlled Britain, only south of Hadrian's Wall which is south of the present boundary between England and Scotland. The Scots, another Celtic race, originally lived in Ireland, and migrated to Caledonia during the first 500 years A.D.. These Scots converted the Picts to Christianity, then united with them under Scot King Kenneth MacAlpine in 843 A.D.. A third Celtic race, living in England, was controlled by the Romans, and ultimately was pushed back into Wales.


The Clan MacNauchtan is older than recorded Scottish history, and may have originated with one of the three Pict kings of Caledonia named Nechtan who ruled during the periods 458-482, 599 - ?, and 710-730.


Families in Scotland did not have established surnames until the later half of the 11th century, when Scot King Malcolm Canmore (1058-1093) encouraged his people to accept the practice, already begun in other countries. However, standards of literacy were low so the records show many variations in the spelling of the surname, including MacNaughton, McNaughton, MacNaghtan, MacNachtan, McNaghtane, MacNaghtane, etc..


The early MacNauchtans were Picts who had settled in Strathtay, the valley of the Tay River in the Scottish lowlands, north of Edinburgh. These MacNauchtans were a brave and warlike people under the leadership of chieftains called Thanes of Lochtay. In 1164 Scot King Malcolm IV gave the clan chiefs control of lands in the Scottish highlands to the west, in gratitude for help in controlling the MacDougalls. This marked the beginning of the movement of the clan chiefs from Strathtay to Argyll, north and west of Glasgow. Additional lands in Argyll were assigned to the clan, as vassals of King Alexander II in 1222. In 1267 King Alexander III granted custody of Fraoch Eilean, a castle on an island in Loch Awe, to Gilcrest MacNauchtan, the clan chief, for assistance in driving Norsemen from W. Scotland. Clan headquarters were later moved to the castle of Dubhloch, in Glenshira, and then after 1473, to Dunderave, near the head of Loch Fyne.


During the disagreements over succession to the Scottish throne, after the death of King Alexander III in 1286, the MacNauchtans initially supported English King Edward I and his choice of John Balliol, then, later switched to support Robert Bruce who became King Robert I of an independent Scotland in 1314. A coat of arms was assigned to the clan chiefs sometime after this. The MacNauchtan highlanders of Argyll remained loyal supporters of the dynasty of Steward Kings, until they were thrown out in 1688. King James VI of Scotland became King James.........."
