Re: WILL of Charles ODINGSELL, ca 1721 - 1771, Savannah, GA
Ms. Van Cleef,
This may be of some help to you.
Charles Odingsell 21 March 1698/99, by Warrant for Land (Salley, Olsberg Revision, Warrants for Land in South Carolina, 1672-1711, pg. 285) This document refers to Westbrook's Island. Also, a memorandum dated 13 November 1702 referencing the prior document and referring to Westbrook or Datha Island (first use of the name), to which claim is forfeited (Ibid., pg. 606), clearing the title for Joseph Boone.
Present day Dataw Island is a South Carolina sea island gated country club community located 6 miles east of Beaufort, SC.
I came across this while conducting research on Caleb Westbrook, a Scottish trader who was the previous owner of the island.
