I have different information on Britton Edwards of Beaufort County (marr Ann
Britton Edwards born estimate bef 1765 (if age 21 or older at time of 1786
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.
