     William settled at a plantation called Rockford in Lenoir Co., North Carolina, sometime prior to 1743. He was a member of the Colonial Assembly, a member of the Committee of Safety as well as a member of the Council of the state in 1779. He was a prosperous planter and slaveholder and furnished supplies and ferriage for the patriotic cause. In 1743 he built "White Hall" in Seven Springs, North Carolina1.

     William was an ancestor of Nathan Bryan Whitfield, who moved to Marengo County, Alabama. There Nathan purchased land from General Gaines, and built the famous "Gaineswood" estate which he named in honor of the General. The noted and ill-fated architect, Stanford White, said that Gaineswood was the "most exquisitely perfect country home" he ever saw.4

I am uncertain as to whether this is the John Daughtrey that Margaret married. It appears his first wife Elizabeth died about 1758, so if Margaret and John married before 1742, did he and Elizabeth divorced? Also the apparent will for John names Margaret but none of his children by his first wife Elizabeth.4,5,2,6 She married second Thomas Langford after 1749.5

Narrative

     On 25 February 1739/40, John Lawrence assisted John Bowin and William Fowler in appraising the estate of William Bradshaw. On 25 June 1744, John, John Johnson, and William Fowler appraised the estate of James Tullaugh. On 9 September 1749, John and William Lawrence and William Edmonds appraised Fowler's estate. On 6 August 1752, John Lawrence, Jacob Butler, and James Bryant appraised the estate of William Daughtry. On 5 June, 1755, John and William Lawrence and John Darden appraised the estate of John Daughtry.

     On 12 July 1770, Charles and wife Amey sold land to John Lawrence for £50. The land was described as "being in the County of Southampton on the south side of Black Water it being part of a pattein granted to John Lawrence the sixteenth day of December 1714 Bounded as follows: Beginning in the pattein line where George Lawrance's new line begins as bounds him and thence south __East along that new line to the Cattail Branch then along the said Branch to the Pattain line then along the said ____ distance to joyn the said John Lawrances one land and so along Lawrances Land to the Pattain line then along the Pattain on to the begining it is one hundred & fory acres … as was given the said Charles Lawrance by his uncle Jeremiah Lawrance."5 I believe this John is the John Lawrence in this transaction.

     John made a will on 2 March 1757 in Isle of Wight Co., Virginia. John's will:

(1) grandson Elisha Lawrence Ballard, the home plantation, the land in Southampton County received in his father's will, half a patent in Southampton County, 2 slaves, still, worm, featherbed, and furnishings; (2) nephew John Lawrence, half a patent in Southampton County; (3) granddaughter Honour Ballard, slave, feather bed and furnishings, and £20 in cash; (4) granddaughter Ann Ballard, ditto; (5) daughter Ann Ballard and her husband Elisha Ballard who is to act as executor, 2 slaves and the rest of the estate.
