Andersons of Edgefield District, SC

These are the raw, uninterpreted data. I hope this post helps researchers.

The Andersons left behind numerous records, but even then they are sometimes difficult to sort out. So we don’t even try. You’ll have to do that, if your family line links up with them

Let’s get started.

Note: The Royal Grant Books and the Plat Books can go outside Edgefield District or County, since early on Edgefield didn’t exist, but was created in 1785.

Mays’s friend Thomas Anderson has been unsuccessful in some of the undertakings in consequence of which three tracts of land belonging to said Anderson have been sold by the sheriff, and Mays bought them at what he considers a low price; and in consequence of a friendship with old Capt. William Anderson in his lifetime, Mays feels duty bound to assist Anderson’s family rather than take advantage of them and advance his own. He hereby gives in trust to Thomas Anderson and Dr. James Spann for the children of Thomas Anderson namely Lein?, Eliza Ann, John and Thomas M. all the plantation lying on both sides of Wilson Cr. containing 942 acres and a mortgage given to Mays as executor of William Mays (location of acres described, including mill tract as it is called). “It is my express will that the said mills and land shall immediately begin by my executors to the said Thomas Anderson and Dr. James Spann in trust and as trustees for the children of Thomas Anderson and Dr. James Spann until the youngest child become at the age of twenty one years and then to be equally divided among my children. I also authorize the said trustees (in case they think best) to sell up to one half of the land and use the proceeds as the profits are used.”
