Some of the information on the descendants of Caran Brannon was sent to me by Sara Jane Chandler of Simpsonville, SC. She got it from the book DESCENDANTS OF JOHN WATSON I, 1752-1823.
Mr. Hank Shockley gave me a paper on which were listed Court Orders of Richmond County,VA., for the years 1697-1699. This is one section of that page:
"CHARON BRENHAN, Servant to George Davenport, being presented to this Court to have inspection into his age, is adjudged Twelve years old and ordered to serve his said Master or assigns according to Act. "
Additional information is from "The Registers of North Farnham Parish, 1663-1814, and Lunenberg Parish 1783-1800. Richmond Co., VA" compiled and published by George Harrison Sanford King, Fellow, American Society of Genealogiests, Fredericksburg, Va, 1966.
According to a genealogy written by Mr. Hank Shockley (from memory) the line is supposed to descend thusly:
