William Hudson participated in the American Revolution

William Hudson, was the son of Isaac Hudson Sr. and grandson of Henry Hudson and wife Mary Russell. He was born about the mid 1730’s in VA. Some Hudson family records and recorded Books state that William Hudson is the sixth generation in VA. He died in 1809 in Edgefield Co. District, South Carolina. William married in Lunengberg Co. VA., to Susannah Allen, born in VA., daughter of Robert Allen Jr. of Virginia and North Carolina.

Children of William and Susannah Allen Hudson are:

  • 1. Lucy Hudson, died 25 July, 1825 in Giles Co. TN. She first married Isham Edwards who died in Bute Co. in 1771.

In 1775 she married Thomas McKissack Named in her grandfather Robert Allen's will 11 November 1783. "To all Christian people to whom this present writinshall come, I Robert Allen of the County of Caswell, State of North Carolina, send greetings. Know ye that I, Robert Allen, for divers and good causes and valuable considerations do give and grant unto my granddaughter Lucy McKissack of the same County, one negro girl named Charlotte. Witness: William McKissack, Jurat. (Caswell County, NC Deed Book B, page 134.)

2. Allen Hudson, born 23 June, 1768 VA., and died 31 August, 1824. He married Sarah Ann Myers

3. Elizabeth Hudson, also known as Bitsy was born 18 March, 1770 VA., and died 6 October, 1835 in AL. She married James Simmons

4. Isaac Hudson, died 1831 Lowndes Co. AL.

5. Winiford Hudson, married Stephen Wilson

6. Susannah Hudson, died 1836 in Monroe Co. GA. She married Joseph GibsonWhen Robert Allen moved to North Carolina,

When Robert Allen moved to North Carolina, William and his family moved along with the Allen’s. As stated before on Robert Allen’s page, there was a close knit family tie between William Hudson, his brother John Hudson, to Robert Allen. Of course the brothers married Allen sisters, daughters of Robert Allen, but it appeared to be much more than a father-in-law and son-in-law connection. In Bute Co. NC., Deed Book 3, December, 1768; Robert Allen deeded 200 acres to his son-in-law, William Hudson for natural love and affection and for better support. John Hudson, brother to William and Robert Allen Jr. were witness to the signing. It is known that Susannah Allen, died before her fathers will was written in 1782, but appears she died before October, 1780 in NC. October 1780 William deeded to his son Isaac Hudson for good causes and valuable consideration, the land where he lived in Granville Co. and moved to Chatham Co. where some of his other children had moved. By 1808 William had moved to Hancock Co. GA., and was living with his daughter Elizabeth and son in law, James Simmons. William’s wrote his first will which was recorded in Hancock Co. GA. but never probated. Seven months later he was in Edgefield Co. South Carolina where he wrote a new will, this will was probated in Edgefield Co. in 1813. It appears he was living with his son, Isaac Hudson who was named executor of his last will. Between the two wills his children can be identified. One thing for sure, when he moved to Ninety Six District, South Carolina other family members were living there. His brother-in-law; Josiah Allen had lived in this area before he died in the Revolutionary War. Josiah's oldest son, James married Rebecca Hudson daugher of Isaac and a grand daughter of William and Susannah Allen Hudson. This is just another twister to the Allen/Hudson family and could be a reason for William Hudson to move to South Carolina to be near his son or son(s) family.



Named in the first will was: Lucy Hudson, one dollar Isaac Hudson, negro; Gloster Susannah Hudson, his riding horse Winifred Hudson, one hundred dollars Allen Hudson, one dollar Bito (daughter) bed and all furniture, this appears to be Elizabeth, since he moved all his household items to her home and left them there. In this will his son in law, James Simmons was Executor

The second will was dated 25 October, 1809 and was proved in Edgefield Co. South Carolina Dis trict. Elizabeth Simmons, one feather bed and all household possessions I left with her when I moved from GA. Susannah Gibson, my riding horse and saddle Note here that Allen and Lucy were not mentioned. They lived elsewhere and did not live nearb y. The daughter Winifred was deceased and the legacy which was previously bequeathed to her w as given to her son, Stephen Wilson. There is no mention of Bito Hudson who was named in the first will, she may have died without marrying.


Residence: his farm of 248 acres on Gunters Creek 1762 place Granville Co., North Carolina

Residence: his home FROM 1780 TO 1795 place Chatham Co., North Carolina (this is the father of Susanna Allen)

Residence: the home of his daughter 1808 place Hancock Co., Georgia he was living in Edgefield Co at least by 1811, and died there in 1813

William Hudson resided in Edgefiled County SC in 1811

I propose that you be the profile manager, this turns out not to be my line. I'm happy for you to delete the bio notes that I had put down.....

My William Hudson is the other William Hudson who was living in Edgefield SC near his Wilborn Daughters in 1809 (Polly Hudson Wilborn and Cary Hudson Wilborn -- I got these two Wm Hudsons confused.

By the way, I saw a good write up on this line at genealogy.com,

I do have some files on this line from when I thought it was mine, I can send them if you want them, but the work I saw at WorldConnect and (similar work) at Genealogy.com looks to be much better than mine.

Working to correctly distinguish the various Wm Hudsons living in the Ludenburg / Brunswick / Mecklenburg area of VA.....

Now appears to be at least 3 distinct men: a. Wm Hudson who m. Susanna Allen b. Wm Hudson who m. Sara (maiden name unknown) c. Wm Hudson who died and left will -1814

a forth Wm Hudson now liklely, there are multiple deeds co signed by Wm Hudson and wife Susanna ... I had previouslly believed this to be the Wm Hudson that married Susanna Allen; however, as I accumulate more Allen records, it now appears that there may be conflicting dates - when one William and Susanna were in Granville NC and one remaining in VA (still working on this).
