(Zwischen 14. Jul. 1756 und 7. Mrz. 1757)
George Town, Prince George Winyaw Parish, S.C.


From Don Halsell -
The Halsells are first found in Prince George County, Maryland in the early 1700's. They migrated on to Lunenberg, Virginia, then down to South Carolina, then up to Kentucky. My branch moved on to Montgomery County, Tennesse, which is just across the state line from Todd County, Kentucky.
12/14/2000- note to Carl Mobley from Ann B. Willis
"The Humble Petition of the Inhabitants of Sinecar & Monocacy in Prince Geo. County (Virginia)" - dated abt. 1742 was to have the Parish of Prince Georges divided (establishing a new parish....All Saints...which is now Fredrerick Co, MD). Signing were: Jno. Poole, Jno. Delashmett, Delashmutt-26 , George Williams, William Williams, William Browne, THOMAS HALSALL (Sr), Alexander Duvall, Edward Mobberly, Wm. Mobberly, Clement Mobberly, Geo. Williams, Giles Williams....and many more. I have a copy of this original document....
8/21/2001 - from Anne Willis -
Dear Martha, The "Humble Petition" has no date on it. I did note however that it was about 1740 (1742?). Perhaps you can find more information at the Maryland Historical Society. That is where I found the "Petition", in fact, it was given to me by a minister (probably Episcopalian ) who I think just happened to be there that day. He was connected to one of the large churches in Baltimore. It has been years since I worked on this (I'm now 82).
I now work on my father's family in New England (Puritans...Roger Conant arrived in 1623...Founded the Massachusetts Bay Colony. My Brookses were in Concord in 1636 and still there when Paul Revere made his ride.) So, as you see, I have a lot to do. Sorry, I can't help more on Halsells. I did not work on them. The Maryland Archives in Annapolis have wonderful records...including William Mobberly being whipped for horse stealing. They did not think much of Edward either. Perhaps that is why they left Maryland.
My Sincere Regards, Anne (nee Brooks) Willis

I show six children for Thomas, Sr.: George, Sr., Sarah, Thomas (Jr.), William, Mary, and John. You do not show Sarah, born about 1740, married 1755, to Albert Beam(e), Sr. No middle names. There is quite a bit of information available on the Beams.
Also, you show a Benjamin and an Edward Halsell, which I have not listed. I think I have seen them listed, too. As you know from the paper " Early Halsells of South Carolina " there were alot of Benjamins and Edwards.,d.Yms
