HILLSBOROUGH, LITTLERIVER, ORANGE COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA:
In June 1965, Hugh Conway Browning, held along conversation with Mr.
George Walker, born 1888, a son of ThomasWalker, grandson of Phillip
Walker, great grandson of Robert Walker,and great-great grandson of
William Walker Sr. Mr. George Walkerrelated that as a youngster his
grandfather had told him a great number ofitems relating to his family
history. Among them being that WilliamWalker Sr, the first of his family
in this area, came to Hillsborough, LittleRiver, Orange County, North
Carolina around 1767, from Canada. Williamreturned to Canada taking with
him all members of his family except hisson, Robert, who on April 18,
1791, married Eleanor Latta, a daughter ofJohn Latta, Sr. The residence
of Mr. George Walker is located in theSchley-Caldwell area of Orange
County, north of the present day roadwhich runs by New Sharon Church and
continues to the intersection of this roadand the Guess Road at Hopkins
Cross Roads. This was the home place ofhis great grand father, Robert
Walker. The house was built for Robert bya man named Hanks about the time
that Phillip Walker, (his grandfather) wasfour years of age, which
indicates that the house was built about1814.
Land Transaction Records
1. In a deed dated November 15, 1784,Barney Grimes and Mary his wife, conveyed to William Walker 100 acres of landlocated on the south branch of Little River, it being part of a 360 acre tractof land granted to Thomas Perkins by John, Earl of Granville, December 6,1761. 2. In a deed dated July 3, 1787,Thomas Riggs conveyed to William Walker 100 acres of land located on the watersof Little River.
3. In a deed dated April 7, 1788,Alexander Hunter and Susannah his wife,
conveyed to William Walker 200 acreslocated on the south side of the
North Fork of Little River.
4. In a deed dated December 30, 1789,James Riggs conveyed to William Walker 100 acres of land located on the watersof Little River.
5. In a deed dated December 14, 1791, JohnMitchell and Elizabeth his
wife, conveyed to William Walker 213 acresof land located on the waters
of Eno River.
6. In a deed dated August 30, 1793,William Walker conveyed this tract of
land to Levi Whitehead (Whitted?).
7. In a deed dated November 28, 1793,William Walker conveyed this tract
of land to William Dunnegan.
8. In a deed dated April 22, 1794, WilliamWalker conveyed this tract of
land to Robert Walker.
9. In a deed dated April 22, 1794, WilliamWalker conveyed this tract of
land to Robert Walker.
10. In a deed dated February 17, 1794,William Walker conveyed this tract
of land to William Roark.
The aforementioned land transactionsindicates that William Walker Sr’s earliest known land purchases in OrangeCounty were in November 1784. Also,that he purchased other tracts of land in the years that followed.
This indicates the probability thatWilliam came into Orange County about
1767, his eldest son, Robert, was born in1767 in North Carolina, and that
William disposed of his real estateholdings not later the April 1794. It
is also noted that the two April 1794 landtransactions were to his eldest
son Robert. This was about the timeWilliam left Orange County, North
Carolina for his return to Canada.
GRIMSBY, CLINTON ANDNORFOLK COUNTIES, ONTARIO, CANADA:
Around 1794, William Walker Sr., with hiswife Sarah, nine of their children, David and Elizabeth Palmer’s family, andthe widow Margaret McCool’s family came to Grimsby and Clinton Twps, LincolnCounty, Ontario. In his petition forland dated July 10, 1794, William states he was in the army of Lord Cornwallisand that he has just arrived with his family, four of which are men able tobear arms, from North Carolina. He further states he has suffered everythingbut death by the American Revolution. He had property in eight hundred acres ofland taken from him and sold by the rebels. William further pledges hefaithfully adhered to the British Government and can procure witnesses of hisloyalty. He requested an allotment of land adequate to his family and askedthat his long travel, nearly one thousand miles be considered.
On July 12, 1796, William states that hehas received for himself and
family, consisting of a wife and ninechildren, twelve hundred acres,
Grant No. 139, and praying for additionallands at the Long Point
Settlement. The land granted to WilliamWalker Sr. was located in Grimsby
Township Lots 11, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, ConVII. Later the map of Clinton
Township, shows William Walker Sr. hadalso received Lots 19 & 20, Con. B,
F, and I on the shore of Lake Ontario,where he and his family lived until
his death in 1819. This land was at theend of “The Thirty Road”, which at
that time was known as “The Harbour”, aport of call for lakeboats for
many years. William Walker Sr., a Loyalistfrom North Carolina, is
credited with having been Clinton Township’sfirst settler. He was active
in the social and business life of bothClinton and Grimsby Townships. In
1804, William was recorded as one of five “Freeholders”to choose two
representatives of the district to run formembers of the Assembly of
Upper Canada and his name was on thevoters list of 1812, 1816, and on all
subscription lists for the building of thefirst church in Grimsby
In 1796, the following of William’schildren were granted their own lots
in Townsend Twp., Norfolk Co., Ontario(Long Point Settlement) with their
families and had cleared over ten acres:Ralph Walker Lot 8 Con 7, Isaac
Walker Lot 8 Con 8, William Walker,Jr Lot1 Con 9, and John Walker Lot 2
In the years 1861 through 1890, several ofthe children of those named
above moved their families to Kent,Montcalm, Ionia, and Saginaw Counties,

Walker built onto the Hall in 1848. TheHall is now a Teashop and is no
longer owned by the Walker family.

WALKERS OF SOUTH CAROLINA
THOMAS WALKER FAMILY:
1. ThomasWalker b.abt.1751 d.1815 m. Mary (unknown). Thomas arrived in 1771 from Ireland, he selected his land in SouthCarolina and had it surveyed by 1772 but it wasn’t certified till 1773.
Thomas settled in South Carolinaclose to an area called “Ninety Six” on
Cuffeetown Creek by other Walkerslisted below:
1. JohnWalker Jr. and Isabel Walker names appear first on the land records, each beinggranted a bounty in 1767. 2. Francisand James Walker had their land surveyed and filed by 1786.
3. Johnand William Walker received their land around surveyed and filed 1786.
All of the Thomas Walker’s land adjoinedone or more of the other Walker lands listed above, leading one to believe theywere all related. Thomas was a successful farmer till the Revolutionary War. In1775, the first SC casualties of the war were sustained through a clash offorces at Ninety Six Courthouse between Whig and Tory forces, the Whigsprevailed. There is no records of what if any roll Thomas played during thisbattle, but it is believed he was with the Tories. In Thomas Walker’s claim tothe British Commission, he states he “joined the British after Charleston wastaken”.
The pay records confirm he served duringthe periods of 6-14-1780 to
12-3-1780 and 12-7-1781 to 3-5-1782.Thomas Walker fled alone first
heading to New Brunswick, Can. andabandoned his lands in SC after
1782-84. His wife, Mary, and five childrentraveled by night and rested by
day. Before Thomas joined them on thetrail one child had died. Another
child died on the journey to St. John’s.Thomas and Mary had other
children after their arrival in NewBrunswick. All the children grew up
and had homes near their parents in NewBrunswick except one who moved to
The memorial of Col. John Hamilton of theSC Militia, 96th District, 3-22-1784 is quoted: “Shewethy, that thesaid Thomas Walker hath be personally known to you Memorialists these eightyears and upwards, that he always supported an unblemished character andzealously attached to his Majesty and the British Government. That hisexertions as a Private in you Memorialists Regiment of Militia were at alltimes used to promote the good of the service. That in consequence thereof hebecame obnoxious to those who were disaffected to the British Government. Thathe was obliged to abandon a good living (well known to you memorialists) andseek refuge within the British lines. His family were in a short time drivenfrom him, deprived of every neccessary except part of their clothing. That youmemorialists left the said Thomas Walker and family, the fifth of last at theriver St. John in such straiten’d Circumstances as rendered his laying claim inperson utterly impossible; Nevertheless, your memorialist hopes there are nowhere evidence to prove the Justice of said Walker claim.”
Thomas Walker was first granted a town lotin Parrtotown in 1784. In 1786,
he received land in Belleisle Bay,Springfield Parish, Kings Co. Thomas
was a member of the Springfield BaptistChurch.

OTHER WALKERS OF NORTH CAROLINA
PHILLIP WALKER, Sr. FAMILY
My oldest know ancestor was PhillipWalker, Sr. who was born abt 1736 and died in Orange County, NC in 1826 leavinga will naming his children but not his wife who had apparently preceded him indeath. My direct ancestor Phillip Walker, Sr. apparently lived in Pennsylvania12 October 1780 when his son Phillip Jr. was born because Phillip, Jr. reportedin the 1850 Census (Henderson, Co. TN) that he was born in PA. The evidencestrongly suggests that Phillip Walker, Sr. was the brother of the John Walker,Sr., who married Nancy Ashford. A descendant of John wrote “John and hisbrother Phillip came to America from Ireland before the Revolutionary War.
They settled in Maryland, then on toPennsylvania and finally to Orange
County North Carolina.” Phillip, Sr. andJohn lived in the same general
area, along Jordan Creek in Orange County,however after the counties were
divided John lived in Caswell County andPhillip, Sr. lived in Alamance
While in North Carolina, the PhillipWalker family lived in what was
Orange County, now Alamance County, onJordan Creek. The earliest deed
record found for Phillip Walker, Sr. inOrange County, NC is 1788, with
two additional tracts one purchased in1795 and the other in 1800, however
all three were not proved until 1802. Thisland was later passed on to
sons Alexander and James in PhillipWalker, Sr. will in 1826, with
Alexander receiving the largest part,which later at his death passed on
to Phillip, Sr.’s other childrenindicating that Alexander was the oldest
son and James being the youngest son. Itis also likely that the other
children had received their part of theirfather’s inheritance prior to
his death as they only received a tokeninheritance.
Phillip Walker Sr.’s know children are asfollows:
1. AlexanderWalker (abt 1765-1835) death in Orange County, NC leaving a will namingbrothers and brother in law.
2. Counley(Conley, Connally) Walker (28 Oct 1768 -25 Oct 1845) death in Orange County, NCleaving a will naming his wife and children. 3. William Walker (17 Jan 1770 - 19 Sep 1819 death in Orange County, NC,buried in Union Ridge Cemetery, Alamance County, his brother Counley was appointedguardian for his wife and surviving children. 4. Mary Walker (abt 1775 - after 1850) married Samuel Crawford, some ofher descendants moved to Fayette County, TN and still live there. 5. John Walker (abt 1776 - death dateunknown) but was still living in 1845) at the time of the death of his brotherAlexander. 6. Phillip Walker, Jr. (12Oct 1780 - 9 Apr 1858) died in Henderson County, TN (place of birth named in1850 census as PA). 7. James Walker (19Jun 1785 - 19 Jun 1853) died in Alamance County, NC, buried in Union RidgeCemetery, Alamance County.
8. JinneyWalker (abt 1790-bef 1835) was not married in 1826 and believed to have diedbefore 1835 because she was not named in her brother Alexander’s will.
My great-great-grandfather wasPhillip Walker, Jr. who married Rebecca
King in Orange County in 1816. Thiswas where all their children including
my Great-grandfather Ezekiah Walkerwere born before the family moved to
Henderson County TN in the mid 1830’s.My great-grandfather Ezekiah
married Cathrine McCall and one oftheir sons, Grandville Walker, married
Isabelle Rushing and were mygrandparents and one of their sons, Lucian
Walker, married Ida Anderson andwere my parents.

WILLIAM WALKER FAMILY
William Walker b. d.1769 in Orange Co.,NC. m. (unknown). There is littleinformation on William Walker. He own property on Hogans Creek. Hogans Creek isin Rockingham County, NC, and flows in a northeasterly direction through thatcounty and Caswell County until it empties into the Dan River. That area is onthe far western edge of Orange County as it existed in 1769. Walker also named,as his executor, John Robertson, whose name matches that of a man known to havelived on Country Line Creek since 1761. What this means is that Walker lived inan area that today is the southeastern corner of Rockingham County.

OUR WALKER FAMILY’S LANDS AND PLACES
GRIMSBY, CLINTON AND NORFOLK COUNTIES,ONTARIO, CANADA: Around 1794, William Walker Sr., with his wife Sarah, nine oftheir children, David and Elizabeth Palmer’s family, and the widow MargaretMcCool’s family came to Grimsby and Clinton Twps, Lincoln County, Ontario. Inhis petition for land dated July 10, 1794, William states he was in the army ofLord Cornwallis and that he has just arrived with his family, four of which aremen able to bear arms, from North Carolina. He further states he has sufferedeverything but death by the American Revolution. He had property in eighthundred acres of land taken from him and sold by the rebels.
William further pledges he faithfullyadhered to the British Government
and can procure witnesses of his loyalty.He requested an allotment of
land adequate to his family and asked thathis long travel, nearly one
thousand miles be considered.
On July 12, 1796, William states that hehas received for himself and
family, consisting of a wife and ninechildren, twelve hundred acres,
Grant No. 139, and praying for additionallands at the Long Point
Settlement. The land granted to WilliamWalker Sr. was located in Grimsby
Township Lots 11, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, ConVII. Later the map of Clinton
Township, shows William Walker Sr. hadalso received Lots 19 & 20, Con. B,
F, and I on the shore of Lake Ontario,where he and his family lived until
his death in 1819. This land was at theend of “The Thirty Road”, which at
that time was known as “The Harbour”, aport of call for lakeboats for
many years. William Walker Sr., a Loyalistfrom North Carolina, is
credited with having been Clinton Township’sfirst settler. He was active
in the social and business life of bothClinton and Grimsby Townships. In
1804, William was recorded as one of five “Freeholders”to choose two
representatives of the district to run formembers of the Assembly of
Upper Canada and his name was on thevoters list of 1812, 1816, and on all
subscription lists for the building of thefirst church in Grimsby
In 1796, the following of William’schildren were granted their own lots
in Townsend Twp., Norfolk Co., Ontario(Long Point Settlement) with their
families and had cleared over ten acres:
1. JohnWalker requested Lot 2, Con 8 in Townsend Twp. He cleared over ten acres whileawaiting verification of his land petition which was granted in 1799. In 1801,John Walker sold to Fredrick Sovereen two hundred acres 2/8 To. and in 1806,John sold Lots 9 & 10, Con 12 in Grimsby Twp. to
2. WilliamWalker Jr requested and received a land grant in 1796 for Lot 1, Con 9 TownsendTwp. William’s brother Ralph had petitioned for Lot 8, Con 7 in 1796. There washowever some dispute of ownership and it was determined that Calven Cooley wasowner. In 1797, the land was prized by Robert Averill who valued it at ninedollars after William had shown he had done substantial work on the lot. CalvenCooley agreed to the price and quit all right and title to Lot 8, Con 7. In1799, William requested a lease on Lot 2 Con 9 in Townsend Twp. In 1810, hiswife Margaret received her own grant as a daughter of the U.E. Loyalist,Archibald McCool. Her two hundred acres of land were located in Walsingham.Other land transactions for William and Margaret: 1811 to Benjamin Collver twohundred acres 1/9 To, 1811 from William McCool one hundred acres SHf5/9, 1811from Joseph McCool one hundred acres NHf6/9, 1811 from Joseph McCool onehundred acres SHf6/9, 1811 to John Barber one hundred acres SHf5/9 and onehundred acres SHf6/9, 1811 from John Barber in all sixty three acresPf5&6/9, 1813 from John Singer two hundred acres 15/7 Wo, and 1813 to

4. IsaacWalker requested Lot 8 Con 8 Townsend Twp. in 1796. However in 1797, PaulAverill ascertained Lot 8 Con 8 had been requested by Isaac Petitt as well. Mr.Averill recognized Isaac Walker as the first improver and had the best right toit. The claim of Isaac Petitt was annulled.
Other land transactions: In 1800 AncasterTwp., 8/8 to (878), in 1803 to

3. MiddletonTownship, Norfolk County.
This township has a rather odd layout forthe Cons and Lots. There were
actually two sets of each, one starting inthe middle of the township and
running southeast and the other startingin the middle of the township and
running northwest, both in a triangleshape, however only one set is
labeled Con and the Lot numbers for thosenot named Con start at 142. I
will be listing each separately, startingwith the one running southeast
which does not have the word Con next tothe rows. The ones labeled Cons
run from the middle of the township to thenorthwest, the Lots are mostly
rectangle running the same direction. Iwill be including town names and
other landmarks in the Lot or Lots wherethey occur.
