would like to make a remark about granville NC Granville was a district that was in NC until 1760.when Granville was no longer. it became known a part of old 96th dristict which the old granville became Abbeville district. by 1762. So the southern part of NC became SC. Why do i know this??My Hanvey familythat came from N Ireland, County down, on his first papers in 1762 for 250 acres of land in Granville NC was correct when he received his first set of immigrant papers. by 1766, the land in question was now abbevile dist.later became abbeville cothen at the endas of today it is greenville co.
Granville the community is in Greenwood co SC by the town of troy. the community changed its name many times to Hillsborough, Belast, boonsville and finally Troy.
Yes there were clayton's there in granville NC +in 1750's I had an ancestor that was born after 1767 and it says she was born in Granville NC.Not really because 1762 was when granville became SC.In 1790 there were clayton's still in the same GPS area.
My Hanvey family, the caseys and many other families married into the Clayton family. in 1850, some of the hanveys moved to Cowetta GA and later to NW Alabama where more hanveys were closely related.
You have to know a little bit about Granville NC and when it became abbeville dist scthen abbeville Co sc and finally Greenville co. SC.The counties changed several times since 1800. becase of the number of residents in each county.they had to be balanced.
in the 1840 to 1900the name Clayton appears as surnames and as middle names.I am currently working on the Clayton's in Ala, one of my allied familiies. around the Colbert co area NW AL and searching backward to ga and SC and TN
However there was another Granville co In middle NC which still exist today. However, it is probably the SC Granville you are looking at.
