William Gulledge, the son of Edward and Alles Gulledge, was born in about 1730. This date was arrived at from the fact that William was mentioned as owning land in the Granville District of North Carolina on October 31, 1751. This is the earliest record found for William Gulledge.

In the lists of warrents for lands granted in May Court of Claims for the year 1769 by Governor Wm. Tryon, William Gulledge was granted 100 acres of land in Bladen County, North Carolina on the south side of Drowning Creek on May 3, 1769.
