I've just come across some pretty credible information that explains the 'Name Change' that has us all itching to be a fly on the wall in 1752/3. This guy says that the handwriting and the accent of the Alewine family confused things. It seems like a credible option. I'm going to try to get my hands on either the original clerk's request for land, or a really good copy of it. I'm not too far from Charleston, and may be able to get my hands on it. I did manage to see the actual land grant, but because the surveyor likely couldn't read the chicken scratch of the clerk, its likely incorrect as well. It seems a likely scenario in any event.
