Possible connections between Va/NC/Ga Hayslips/Haslips
In researching this family, I have come across info I haven't seen mentioned elsewhere online, so I'm sharing for others who may be interested, and I'm hoping to elicit more info to confirm or refute these connections.
Accomack Co., Va
George Haslip (with many spelling variations) first appears in this county's records circa 1682 in a court case; someone stated in a deposition that he said he wished he was back in England. He leaves a will in that county circa 1706, naming his wife Ann, sons George, William and Charly, and daughter Elizabeth.The first two sons got land, while Charly got a cow and calf, suggesting he was younger.
William Kellam leaves a will in Accomack probated Oct 1714.He names many children including a son Nathaniel, along with his wife Ann and son-in-law Charles Haslip and daughter-in-law Elizabeth Haslip.In the usage of that time, this means stepson and stepdaughter, so William has married the widow of George Haslip.This will is interesting, as there is a Nathaniel Kellam who sells land to Charles Haslip in Onslow Co., NC circa 1782.(Anybody out there know anything else regarding links between these two groups of Haslips?If so, please share.)
Abner Haslip's name appears in Accomack records in the early 1750s in a court case.He is neither plaintiff nor defendant, but the case involves some money he owed.
Abner and Southy (Southey, Surthey, Southog, Surthard) Haslip (Hazlip, Hayslap, Hazelip, Haeslop, Hairslip) appear together on muster and payrolls for the Virginia regiment beginning Jul 1754, including one muster roll that includes Lt. Col. George Washington.They are initially in a company led by Capt. Peter Hog, and later by Capt. Thomas Waggoner.There is a Peter Hog in Accomack records in the 1750s.Abner and Southy are always listed either immediately adjacent or near each other in the rolls in 1754-1756.They both received 5 pounds extra pay for being in the Battle of Monongahela, the famous battle in which British General Braddock was killed and George Washington gained more prominence.In 1757, Abner is listed on rolls without Southy in a company led by Capt Josh Lewis.One roll says that Abner is from Southampton Co.(See Colonial Soldiers of the South, 1732-1744 for all this military information.It's available online on Ancestry.com)
Tyrrell Co./Martin Co., NC
Southey Hasslip received a patent for 596 acres of land in Tyrrell Co., NC on 21 Jun 1762.The survey for this patent had occurred 16 Feb 1762; the chaincarriers were Charles Hayslip and John Harrell.After Martin Co. is created from Tyrrell in 1774, this land is in Martin Co.Southey engages in real estate deals first in Tyrrell then in Martin until about 1805, when his name stops appearing.Charles Haslip's name appears in these counties with Southey's for the first few years.
Onlsow Co., NC
Charles Hailslipp receives a patent on 1 Mar 1780 for 168 acres in Onslow Co.Survey was 17 Sep 1779; chainbearers Thomas Bryan and Benjamin Kilyard.He sells this land, and buys 100 acres from Nathaniel Kellam (see Accomack Co., Va above).
Onslow Deed Bk. P, pp. 22-24 13 Oct 1787 Abner Haslip, Charles Haslip and Zorabelle Haslip sell 25 acres of land to John Godfrey.This was part of 400 acres patented to Daniel Catholick on 21 Sep 1754 and deeded by him to Nathaniel Kellam who sold it to Charles Haslip, who had died with the land descending to the three grantors.The 25 acres roughly represented their Mother's third.Excepted from the deed was the 25 square feet where "my father is buried" and the use of the graveyard for "myself or my father's family."All 3 men sign their names (no marks), and spell their name Haslip.
Onslow Deed Bk. S, 9 Sep 1793 There are two deeds where Sarah Haslip gives cattle and household goods to grandchildren. (One is dated 9 Sep 1794, but this is clearly an error as it was recorded before that date.)In the first she gives stuff to Sarah Haslip and Jackey Boneta Haslip, children of Abner Haslip.In the other, she gives stuff to Zorababel Haslip son of her son Charles Haslip (yes, that is clearly what the deed says).This is the last mention I have seen of Sarah, widow of Charles.
All three sons married in Onlsow Co., and each of their names appeared in Burke Co. or Jefferson Co., Ga records.The family later spread to Sumter and Lee counties in Ga.
I think I'll stop there to try to limit information overload.As previously mentioned, I would greatly appreciate it if anyone shares information that could clarify any connection between these cluster of Haslip/Hayslips in Virginia, North Carolina and Georgia.
