Andersons of Colonial N. Carolina

Phillip Brantley notes… 1720ish to 1760s.. ish…

with 3 comments

His son John seems to have stayed around the area after Phillip died…

This is pretty much a note to myself to pick up at a later date…

This particular Brantley line is interesting to me because of this area of modern Southampton County, VA. It was Isle of Wight in early colonial times. (IOW extended all the way to the NC state line, which did not even exist until 1728). Also many of this area’s inhabitants were associated with folks I am researching…. my Andersons of course, but also Brownes, Boons, Forts, Sims… and others.

I could easily write for an hour just expounding on the clues… but my interest right now is the Boons around Meherrin River.

I am still searching and mapping the early, first patents of this area… all these clues listed are mostly the sons and later folks acquiring the land from dying parents or folks selling out and moving. In order to help satisfy my curiosity I will need to map these later folks. (The Brantley Association Southampton Project will be instrumental for that little project).

Feel free to comment… I will revisit this when the urge allows…

The deed references are the work of Forrest King whose research I constantly run across in my Google searches. (Thank you Mr. King for sharing)

  1. I would love to discuss maps with you. A tutorial would be nice. Trying to make map of Brantley migration from Isle of Wight to Georgia. My daughter & her family are moving from TX to GA & this would be a great project.
