Prudence was the daughter of Mary Chadwick Adcock and William Adcock.Mary's mother gave them land in Granville Co. NC when they married. William's will lists all of their children and I believe there were 12. William was the son of Bolling Adcock and Eliza (Liza, Elizabeth) Smallwood, who was the daughter of William Smallwood in Granville Co. Bolling was the son of "old John" Adcock of Granville Co. who came to Granville Co. from VA in 1747 and John died in Granville in 1780.John was the son of Henry Adcock and Susannah of Essex Co. VA, and Eleanor. John's brother, Tobias Adcock, also came to Granville Co. in the mid 1700's. Henry was the son of Edward Adcock and Elizabeth Smith of Essex Co., VA and Edward was the son of John Adcock of York, VA who was there in 1640. Bolling also had a grandson named William Adcock, whomhe called "Petey" in his will, and this William was the son of his daughter Asenith Adcock.He was born in 1793 and it is believed he is the one who married the Paschall in the county next to Granville.He may have also moved to TN.
