White, Isaac (b. 1729, d. 1801)
Note: Isaac and his wife Mary left Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania and traveled south to establish a plantation in South Carolina.

According to the Union County World Wide Web Site the following information is available on Union County Early Settlements and Families: The earliest land grant in the Brown's Creek area, located approximately four miles northeast of what is now the town of Union, was issued in 1752.

The area was settled by a group of Scotch-Irish Presbyterians. By 1755, there were enough families to organize Brown's Creek Church, which soon became known as Union Church because it was used as several denominations. Some of these families later moved elsewhere, but descendants of many of these families remained in Union County for decades.

Families that settled along Brown's Creek, after the Revolutionary War include the family of Isaac White.

Isaac White enlisted while residing in Charleston, under Captain Philip Pricleau. In 1780 and 1781, he was under Capt. Anthony Toomer and Major Gilball in the Charleston Battalion of Artillery. After being wounded in the hip and taken prisoner during this fall of Charleston, he was paroled for one year. Thereafter, he was put on a prison ship for refusing to swear allegiance to the King. He was held prisoner for another four months and then exchanged. (Moved to R.I. and N.Y.)

In May 1781, the following person were sent on board the prison ship Forbay and the Schooner Packhorse: The list of names include that of Isaac White.

The following is evidence that Isaac served in the militia.

The following is a letter from Stephen Moore and John Barnwell to General N. Greene
(From North Carolina State Records)
PRISON SHIP FORBAY, CHARLES TOWN HARBOUR, 18TH MAY, 1781

We have the honor of inclosing (sic) you a copy of a letter from Colonel Balfour commandant of Charlestown, which was handed us immediately on our being put on board this ship. The letter speaking for itself needs no comment; your wisdom will best dictate the notice it merits. We just beg leave to observe that should it fall to the lost of all, or any of us, to be made victims, agreeable to the menaces therein contained, we have only to regret that our blood cannot be disposed of more to the advancement of the glorius cause to which we have adhered. A separate Roll of our names attends this letter.. With the greatest respect, we are, Sir,

White, Isaac John (b. ABT 1700, d. ?)
Note: Va Wills and Administrations list Isaac as recording his inventory in 1767. It is not known when the exact date of death was recorded.

It has become a strong possibility that Maryann Ewell was not Isaac's first wife. The children's birth dates indicate that perhaps Isaac was married and from that union had three children. His wife may have suddenly died and he quickly remarried to ensure a safe and maternal upbringing for his children. He and Maryann then most likely had Isabel, Isaac and John.

Recorded in Old Frederick County in 1735, Isaac listed his family as Presbyterian and his country of origin as Scotland.

The above date of 1735 represents the time of settlement in Old Frederick County. This sources states that several of the families later went south to the Carolinas. Some 73 families migrated south. We have proof that Isaac and Maryann remained in Frederick County as their wills registration and probate records indicate.

Isaac, Maryann, and Richard White are buried in Old Frederick County, VA.

There are no records of Isaac and Maryann owning any slaves at any time.

MARRIAGE: Charles Ewell died before Mary Ann married Isaac. William Ballentine signed as her guardian.

MARRIAGE: In a Depository Public Record Office Survey Report No.3653, there is mention of a Thomas White. It reads, " Two endorsements on the second fragment read as follows: "Ann Accoumpt (sic) of the passengrs (sic) passing from the porte of gravesend from the 11th August 1677 to ye (?) of Nov 1677. and "Delivered this first day of December of 1677 into the office of H.Ms Fem. these tenne Rolles by Thomas White, Clerck (sic) to Wm. Monsharst & Obadiah Clayton, gents."

In a Depostory Public Record Office Survey Report No. 763, it reads, "Sale is to be completed to Thomas White of a tract of 220 acres, and of a tract of 136 acres of moorland bought from Robert Taliaferro and his wife Margaret; both tracts are in St. Mary's Parish."

There are several references to Thomas as being a clerk to Monsharst and Clayton in the Library of Virginia. Proof that this is the same Thomas White as father to Isaac has become difficult as there were several Thomas Whites' in Lancaster County,Virginia at the same time. However, it is a strong possibility that this is the Thomas from whom we descend.

Dejolie (d'Saill, Charles (b. ABT 1645, d. AFT 1710)
Note: NAME: Charles /DeJolie (d'Sailly)/
Title: Count

As early as 1691 the General Assembly of VA established a western boundary line beyond which land was not to be granted. A boundary line road ran from Manakin Town some twenty miles above the falls on the south bank of the James, north to the Rappahannock River above the settlement on that river.

Manakin Town, which had been deserted by the Monocan Indians as the colonists advanced westward, was to become the site of as new settlement. During the summer of 1700 more than eight hundred Huguenots, fleeing persecusion in France after the repeal of the Edict of Nantes in 1685, sought refuge in Virginia. The marquis de la Muce and Count Charles de Sailly with the expectation of settling in Norfolk County, but except for some land in dispute in North Carolina, there was no vacant land in that region. For this reason and because the climate in the area was considered unhealthy, they were offered land at the old Indian village known as Manakin Town.

The first group of 207 refugees journeyed up the James to the falls. There Col.William Byrd II gave them shelter "upon his own Plantations" and allowed them "to furnish themselves from thence with Corn, and other Necessities." Byrd had preceded the group to the falls and had made arrangements to quarter them there. He then led the marquis and Count de Sailly to Manakin Town to show them the land. After they moved up the river beyond the falls, the refugees laid plans for a village and divided the land around the village site into small farms.

In the spring of 1701 Byrd went to visit the settlement and reported that their "Hutts" were "very mean" He was encouraged by the fact that they had cleared a great deal of the land and had planted gardens and corn, but was apprehensive because they had not started to break up the ground. He felt that continued support would have to be provided until their crops came in. Acting under orders to lay out 10,000 acres for the French refugees in 1704, Byrd reported that 77 acres had been laid out before he set the bounds encompassing 10,033 acres for the settlement. While setting the bounds he reserved a parcel of 344 acres within the 10,033 acres for himself.

About this time, or soon after, the refugees began developing a town. The small town, called King William's Town, had been a square in the center intersected by two streets. A main building was to be built at each corner of the square-a church, rectory, hospital, and schoolhouse-and connected to either gardens or houses along the sides of the square.

TRANSCRIPT OF

"Communication from Governor Francis Richardson of Virginia Regarding Huguenot Refugees on Board Ship 'Mary and Ann'," THE HUGUENOT, 6 (1933), 82-86.

Virginia, James City, August 12, 1700 P. R. O. Am. & W. Ind. May it please yo'r Lordp.: No. 638

(Extract)

The 24th of the last month, I had the good Fortune of receiving his Ma'y's Royal Commands of March ye 18th, 1699/1700, sent me by yo'r Lord'p, concerning the Marquis de la Muce, Mons'r de Sailly, and other French Protestant Refugees; and I beg leave to assure yo'r Lord'p, that as I have, so I will endeavor to obey them (they were on board the ship Mary and Ann, of London, George Haws, Commander), who had about 13 weeks passage, and the 23rd of the last month arrived at the mouth of this River), and upon receipt of them, I immediately went down to Kickotan, to give directions in order to their coming hither, some of wh. came on Sunday in the evening, the rest the next day. I wrote to Colo. Byrd and Colo. Harrison to meet them here, w'ch they did, and we concluded that there was no settling them in Norfolk nor thereabouts, because esteemed and unhealthfull place, and no vacant land, except some that is in dispute now betwixt us and No. Carolina: So we thought it would be best for them to go to a place about twenty miles above the Falls of James River, commonly called the Manikin Town. There is a great of good Land and unpatented, where they may at present be all together, w'ch we thought would be best for his Ma'ty's Service and Interests, and that they would be astrengthing to the Frontiers, and would quickly make a settlement, not only for themselves, but to receive others when his majesty shall be graciously pleased to send them. They may be prejudicial to his Ma'ty's interest and Service, vizt., by living long together, and using their own language and customs, and by going upon such manufactures, and handicraft Trades, as we are furnished with from England: but according to duty, I shall endeavor to regulate these affairs, and when, please God, the Council meets, I shall lay before the matters relating to these Refugees.
On Tuesday I mustered them, and No. 1 is a copy of the List of them.
Colo. Byrd went before them in order to meet them at the Falls of this River, where he formerly lived, to dispose of them thereabouts, till they can gett housses or sheds in the place for their Reception, and he promised to go along with the Marquis and Mons'r de Sailly to show them the Land. The people at present seem to be very well affected towards them, and to commiserate their condition, and some who have seen them have given them money, viz: Colo. Harrison, 5 pounds; Mr. Comissary Blair, the like Sum. The Reverend Mr. Stephen Touaie, thereabouts; mr. Benjamin Harrison, 5 pounds; Mr. Attorney General Fowler, something, as likewise Mr. William Edwards, Merchant of this place. I am apt to think that Several Gentlemen and others will be charitable to them. They went from hence yesterday.
If his majesty be graciously pleased to send over more, I humbly propose that Mr. Micajah Perry, merchant of London, may be spoken with about their passage hither, and that they may have their passage on board the Ships which come to the upper parts of James River, w'ch is the nighest place to their settlement, and that there may not above 40 or 50 come in any one Ship: So they may be better accomodated in all respects, for I have observed that when Ships that come into these parts, are crowded with people, 'tis very prejudicial to their health; some getting sicknesses, w'ch not seldom prove catching, some dy on board, and others soon after they come on shore.
Your Lord'ps' dutifull and faithfull humble servant.

PLAC Henrico County Virginia

Order in Council (Page 128) dated at Kensington on 14 March 1699 [1699/1700] approving a representation dated 14 March 1699/1700 submitted by the Commissioners for Trade and Plantations (not given in this volume) concerning the proposed settlement of French Protestant refugees in Norfolk County, Virginia, and directing that a letter be prepared for His Majesty's signature accordingly. This Royal letter dated at Kensington on 18 March 1699/1700, signed by the Earl of Jersey, Secretary of State, and addressed to the Governor of Virginia, required the Governor to give "all possible encouragement" and grants of land to the Marquis de la Muce, Monsieur de Sailly and his fellow refugees.

Immediately following the above Order in Council, the following series of events occured:

26 March 1700 Copies of 2 orders in council were read, one of 7 March 1699/1700 on French refugees, the other of 17 March 1699/1700 accompanying the draft of a letter to the Governor of Virginia.

27 March 1700 Ordered that a letter be written to De Sailly to tell him about the King's letter to the Governor of Virginia relating to French refugees.

5 April 1700 A petition to the King of De la Muce and De Sailly of 1 April 1700 was read, and ordered that it be returned to them so that it could be properly presented to the King by a Secretary of State.

10 April 1700 De la Muce and De Sailly told the Board that they were about to leave for Virginia with a large number of French Protestant refugees. Ordered that a letter be written to Bird (Byrd) of Lincoln's Inn to assist them with his advice and a letter of recommendation to his father.

12 April 1700 Letters to the Governors of Virginia and Maryland were signed, relating to the King's permission for them to meet the Earl of Bellomont at Philadelphia or elsewhere, and to other matters.

26 April 1700 Ordered that as occasions arose to write to the Governors, they be directed to send private and public Acts of the Assemblies separately. A petition of Dr. Cox that Sacheverille be appointed Deputy Governor to the French and English colony at Norfolk County was returned to him as the Board did not think it fit to meddle in such matters except by the King's instructions.

BURIAL: PLAC Gilead Baptist Church Cemetery, Jonesville, SC PAGE Land Bounty Papers

MARRIAGE: Thomas G. Fowler built a house (actually a log cabin) at the fork in the road, where the road from Jonesville, S.C. to Union S.C. forks to the left and goes to Lockhart, S.C. According to family members of Thomas G. White, he passed the house down to his son Charles Ellis, who gave it to his son, George Fowler.

The house is still in the George Fowler family. Manning and Lillian Fowler live there today. The house was supposed to have been built by Thomas's slaves before the railroad came through Jonesville, about 1840 -1855. Thomas had about 257 acres in three tracts. The house is built of hand hewn logs and put together by wooden pegs. The roof beams are small round logs and the rooms have wide floor boards and wide boards on the wall.
