      I have different information on Britton Edwards of Beaufort County (marr Ann
      Orrell):

      Britton Edwards born estimate bef 1765 (if age 21 or older at time of 1786
      Tax List)
      1786 Beaufort County Tax List
      1790 Census, Beaufort County (1 male 16+ for Britton Edwards)
      c1800 NC marriage to Ann Orrell
      10 Sep 1815 Beaufort County Will of William Orrell "I do give and bequeath
      to my loving Daughter Ann Edwards One hundred and Sixty Acres of land lying
      on the North side of Nutons Run..... I do make constitute and ordain my two
      Sons in Law Tho. M. Adams and Britton Edwards my Executors of this my last
      Will and Testament, William Orrell (seal)"

      Have not decided parents of this Britton Edwards.... but a possibility is
      Walker Edwards who in his 11 July 1805 will Beaufort County indicated
      "Executors: Son Brittain Edwards, Walker Edwards."
      In his 1805 will, Walker Edwards listed wife Liddy and children as:
      Walker Edwards son
      Samuel Edwards son
      Liddy Edwards dau
      Rachel Edwards dau
      Rear? Edwards son
      David Edwards son
      Brittain Edwards son
      Julian De (no surname listed) dau
      Elizabeth (no surname listed) dau
      Juda (no surname listed) dau
      Christopher De (no surname listed) son
      Susannah (no surnamed listed) dau
      Howel Downes grandson

      Interesting when there are several men with the same name.
