 Edmund Lilly [II]
Land and Court Records


    All of the following report was researched, written, and sent to me by Lou Poole who has graciously shared his work with us.  It ws an enormous task to collect all of these records.  

        The following records document Edmund Lilly’s arrival and presence in Anson County. In the beginning of this, the identity of the individuals is clear.  By the time that sons and grandsons, all with the same names, are show up in the records, we can't always be sure of who is who.  

“15 Jan 1753, Benjamin Dumas of Anson Co., to David Dumas, for s5 and fatherly love to his child ... 353 Acres on N side Great Pee Dee, adj. Widow Harrington’s line ... Benjamin Dumas (seal), Wit: Edmond Lilly, Jeremiah Dumas, Thomas George, Benj. Dumas.”(16) [Note: Benjamin Dumas was the father of Sarah Dumas who married Edmund Lilly.
David, Jeremiah, and Benjamin (Jr.) are brothers-in-law of Reverend Edmund Lilly, i.e., sons of Benjamin Dumas Sr. (16)

“15 Jan 1753, Benjamin Dumas of Anson Co., to Edmond Lilly and Sarah for s5 and fatherly love to his child ... 350 A on N side Great Pee Dee, beg. at corner in Buffelow Island, S side of Ye Throwfare in Buffelow Island ... Benj. Dumas (seal), Wit: Thomas George, Jeremiah Dumas, David Dumas, Benj. Dumas”(17)

On the same day, Edmund Lilly and his father-in-law, Benjamin Dumas were granted three tracts of land:
“Benjamin Dumas. 10 April 1753 400 acres in Anson County on the N. E. bank of Peedee at the Mouth of a Small branch, joining the sd. Peedee.”(18)

“Edmond Lilly 10 April 1753 236 acres in Anson County on the N. E. bank of Bufflow Island, joining land that formerly belonged to John Clark and the N. branch of Peedee.”(19)

“Benjamin Dumas 10 April 1753 360 acres in Anson County on the bank of a creek that runs into little river of Peedee on the West side.”(20)

The deeds above and below place Edmund Lilly in the very southern-most part of what is now Stanly County, NC. What is referred to below as Buffalo Island is probably now called Buzzard Island, and is an island in the Rocky River just before it empties into the Pee Dee River.

“15 Sep 1753, John Stone of Anson Co., to Jacob Richard of same, for £12 Va. money ... land on N side Great Pee Dee, lower south of mouth of Huwarry River, 300 A granted to John Stone ... John Stone (mark) (seal), Wit: Edmond Lilly, David Dumas, William Crittend.”(21)
“16 Jul 1754, Henry Walker of Anson Co., to James Adams for ten pistoles ... land on S side Pee Dee, be-low the mouth of Rockey River, 135 A ... Henry Walker (seal), Wit: Edmond Lilly, Jeremiah Dumas, Jo-seph Culpepper.”(22)

        The following deed is an important one in our history of the Lilly family, because John Lilly to whom Edmund Lilly sold the following land at a very nominal, or token price is almost certainly the brother of Edmund Lilly – he was the John Lilly who died and left a will in Albemarle County, Virginia in 1759. See John Lilly. The William Lilly who witnessed this deed is certainly the William Lilly, brother of John Lilly. See William Lilly.
“16 Oct 1754, Edmond Lilly of Anson Co. to John Lilley of Albemarle Co., Va., for s5 Va. money ... land on N side Pee Dee, upper end of Buffelow Island, 197 A., granted to Edmond Lilley 1753 ... Edmond Lilly (seal), Wit: Wm. Lilly, William Queen.”(23)

    “17 Dec 1754, Thomas Harrington of Anson Co., planter, to Benj. Dumas of same, for £150 Va. money ... 270 A, N side Great Pee Dee ... line of John Cheek ... 100 taken up by John Giles and the other by Thomas Harrington by patent 1754 ... Thomas Harrenton (T) (seal), Wit: Edmond Lilly, John Culpepper, Sarah Lilley.”(24)
    “24 Oct 1755, Walter Gibson of Anson Co., to William Culpepper of same, for £15 Va. money ... 100 A on N side Rockey River against land of sd. Gibson, at mouth of Spring Branch ... Walter Gibson (seal), Wit: Edmond Lilly, Jeremiah Dumas, John Culpepper.”(25)
    “14 Apr 1755, Thomas Williams of Anson Co., to John Thompson of same, for £30 Va. money ... 200 A on N side Pee Dee above mouth of Clarks Creek ... granted to sd. Williams 23 Feb 1754 ... Thomas Williams (seal), Wit: Edmond Lilly, Benjn. Vines, Sarah Lilly.”(26)
    “20 January 1756, Benjamin Dumas, planter, of Anson Co., to Edmund & Sarah Lilly of same, for £100 proc. money ... 400 A on S side Pee Dee on N side Rockey River, opp. to Andrew Moorman’s land, granted to John Clark 13 Apr 1749, sold to sd. Dumas 10 July 1750 ... Benj. Dumas (seal), Wit: Jeremiah Dumas, Zechariah Smith, Jno. Collson, 7 Jul 1756.”(27)
    “22 Apr 1756, Benjamin Dumas of Anson Co., to John Collson of same, for £50 ... on S side Great Pee Dee, adj. John Hall, granted 27 Feb 1756 ... Benjamin Dumas (seal), Martha Dumasa (X) (seal), Wit: Jeremiah Dumas, Zechariah Smith, Edmund Lilly.”(28) [Note: Martha was the second wife of Benjamin.  See Dumas Family.]
    “26 Apr 1756, Edmund Lilly to Benjamin Dumas, for £100 proc. money ... 390 A on N side great Pee Dee, adj. John Lilly’s corner, including Buffaloe Island ... granted to Edmund Lilly 1753 ... Edmund Lilly (seal), Sarah Lilly (seal), Wit: Jeremiah Dumas, Zechariah Smith, Betty Prestwood.”(29)
    “25 Jan 1758, William Harrington to Thomas Davis, for £20 proc. money ... 200 A on Clarks Creek, grant-ed to sd. Harrington 17 Sep 1756 ... William Harrington (+) (seal), Wit: Edmund Lilly, Joshua Weaver.”(30)

        The following record is also notable, because it represents John Lilly’s selling of the same land he bought from Edmund Lilly in 1753. [Note: The 97 acres listed here must be a mistake, because it was described as being 197 acres in 1753. Remember that the courthouse burned and the deeds were recopied.] John Lilly’s Albemarle County, Virginia will is dated 5 November 1759, almost exactly one year after the following transaction. This probably explains why no records are found for John Lilly prior to his will in Albemarle County, Virginia; he was a resident of Anson County, North Carolina almost until the date of his death.
“24 Nov 1758, John Lyly of Anson Co., to Benjam. Dumas of same, for £100 proc. money ... land on N side Great Pee Dee, upper end of Buffelow Island, 97 A ... conveyed from Edmond Lilly to John Lilly 16 Oct 1753 ... John Lilly (seal), Wit: Jerh. Dumas, David Sneed, Hiller Wileder (I).”(31)

    “14 Apr 1760, John Davis of Anson, planter, to John Vanhose, Blacksmith, of same, for £10 proc. money ... land on SW side Great Pee Dee River, adj. Joshua Weavers, John Halls, land he sold to Vanhoser ... 150 A granted 25 May 1757 ... John Davis (I D) (seal), Wit: Edmund Lilly, Thomas Davis, ___ Jacob ____.”(33)
    “1 May 1761. Jacob Richards. Inv. Wm. Richards, Johannes Vanhoese, Edmund Lilly.”(34)
    “5 Mar 1762, Thomas Davis of Anson, to John Wilson of same, for £21 proc. money ... 200 A on Clark’s Creek, N side Pee Dee, granted to sd. Davis by deed from William Harrington 27 Sep 1756, 200 A ... Thomas Davis (T) (seal), Wit: Edmund Lilly, David Snead.”(35)
    “20 Sep 1764, David Evans of Anson, planter, to Thomas Williams, for 10 proc. money ... land on SW side Pee Dee, at mouth of Davids Cr., adj. McCullohs line, 140 A ... David Evans (D) (seal), Wit: Tiery Robinson, Edmd Lilly, Joseph Murphey (I). Recorded according to law. Saml Spencer, C. C.”(36) 

This following deed is important because Sarah Lilly signed this.  
“19 Jan 1765, John Vanhose, Sen. of Anson, to John Hagler, of same, for £20 proc. money ... 150 A on SW side Pee Dee, adj. Joshua Weaver, John Hall ... granted to John Davis 25 May 1757 & conveyed to Vanhose 14 Apr 1760 ... John Vanhoser (seal), Wit: Edmund Lilly, Sarah Lilly, Johan Jacob [could be Vanhoser, German signature].”(37)

    “20 Jan 1766, David Dumas of Anson, planter, to Benjamin Dumas of same, planter, for 500 proc. money ... 1181 A in 4 tracts: (1) 188 A opp. to Rocky River, on Pee Dee, (2) 50 A, these two granted to Benjamin Dumas the elder in his lifetime (3) land on S side Buffaloe Island, formerly belonged to John Clark 236 A, granted to Edmd Lilly 10 Apr 1763 & (4) 810 A granted to John Clark 20 June 1746 ... David Dumas (seal), Sarah Dumas (X) (seal), Wit: Francis Smith, Richard Dixon (X). Proven July Ct., 1766.”(38)
    “25 Oct 1766, John Gibson, planter, & wf Anna, to John Ryle, planter, for £40 ... land on S side Rocky River, S side Pee Dee, opp. Edmund Lillys plantation, granted 2 Nov 1764, 140 A ... John Gibson (seal), Anna Gibson (X) (seal), Wit: Jno. Pickett, Shadrack Hogan. Proven Oct. Ct. 1766, Saml. Spencer, C.C.C.”(39)
    “16 Mar 1767 Timothy Taylor (Anson Co) to John Hagle (same); for £20 sold 100 ac on S side of Pee Dee R; border: begins at a hickory near mouth of a gut that empties into the river; part of 200 ac granted 3 Feb 1754 by the King to Joshua Weaver who sold 20 Oct 1758 to Timothy Taylor. (signed) Timothy Taylor’s mark ‘T’; witness Edmond Lilly, John Jacob ‘Donharbru’, & Nathaniel Lilly; wit. oath Apr 1767 by [omit-ted]; reg. 8 Jul 1787.”(40)

        In North Carolina, as well as in Virginia, a young lad of only 16 could legally witness a deed. Who is the above Nathaniel Lilly? Insofar as we knew prior to this time Edmund did not have a son or a brother named Nathaniel. The above record, with a number of others provided herein, convince me that Nathaniel Lilly was almost certainly another son of Edmund Lilly who has been heretofore unrecognized.

        The following deed appears to be a very important one. The following 300 acre tract appears to have been divided into two equal pieces, each 150 acres. Half of the following land was given by Edmund Lilly Sr. to his son Edmund Jr. in the 14 March 1785 deed transcribed and provided below. The other half appears to be the land that Nathaniel Lilly (Jr.?) sold to Edmund Lilly Jr. in the 4 January 1803 deed provided in the next section. If I have interpreted these three records correctly, then I think the equal division with each part going to Edmund Lilly Jr. and Nathaniel Lilly is further compelling evidence that Edmund Jr. and Nathaniel were brothers, and sons of Reverend Edmund Lilly.

    “30 Sep 1775 David Dumas, planter (Anson Co) to Edmund Lilly (same); for £10 sold 300 ac on NE side of Pee Dee R and known as ‘the’ rich lands; border: begins at a red oak on the river bank near mouth of Jeremiahs Cr; granted 3 Jan 1754 by the King to Benjamin Dumas deceased and fell to David Dumas ‘proper heir at law.’ (signed) David Dumas; witness Benjamin Lilly & Covington Smith; wit oath 1777 by B Lilly.”(53)

Davidson; in Anson, now Montgomery Co on NW side of Rocky R; border: begins at a pine in said Lilly’s old line; Nathl Lilly & Benj Lilly, chain carriers; grant #34 issued 23 Oct 1782.”(60)

In 1778 the North Carolina Assembly passed an act for the creation of Montgomery County from Anson County. The act specifically directed:
“An Act for dividing the County of Anson into two Distinct Counties aand other purposes therein mentioned
    “…VII. And be it further Enacted by the Authority aforesaid, That West Harris, James Allen, Edmund Lilly and James Roper Walton, or a majority of them be, and they are hereby impowered and directed to agree and contract for at least fifty Acres of Land, and also to agree and contract with Workmen for building a Court House, Prison and Stocks for the use of the said County of Montgomery thereon, at such place as they, or a Majority of them or their Survivors shall agree upon, and for re-imbursing the said Commissioners the Money they shall expend in erecting the said Buildings and running the dividing Line between the said Counties…”(61)

        “23 Dec 1778 Mark Allen enters 640 ac in Anson Co NE of Pee Dee R; both sides of upper Richland Cr; includes Joseph Downing’s improvement and ‘perhaps’ joins Edmond Lilly.”(62) [Comment: The above land is apparently part of the land squabble involving Mark Allen , Edmund Lilly, and John Christian  (and others) discussed at length below.]

        “30 Jul. 1779 Mark Allen enters 640 ac in Montgomery Co on NE side of Pee Dee R and on waters of Rich-land Cr; border: his own land and ‘perhaps’ Edmond Lilly.”(65) [Comment: See similar entry above dated 23 Dec 1778 in Anson County. Was this a re-entry of the same land, just in Montgomery County? Montgomery County was created in 1779 from Anson County.]
        “5 Aug 1779 Henry Hall (Anson Co) to John Brooks jr (same); for £100 sold 150 ac on S side of Rocky R and on Cribs Cr; granted 25 Jul 1774 by the King to Henry Hall. (signed) Henry Hall; witness John Lilly & Robert Broadiway; wit. oath Oct 1779 by Robert ‘Brodiway.’”(66)

The following deed is especially remarkable because it constitutes the only real proof of any of the sons of Reverend Edmund Lilly. (And the reader should notice: 1) that a David Lilly signed as a witness, who probably is another son of Edmund Lilly, Sr., 2) the first tract is described as being near the land of a “Widow Lilly,” who is most likely the widow of a Nathaniel Lilly.)

Note: It was about this time that Edmund Lilly, Jr., son of Reverend Edmund Lilly, should have emerged into the records (he was born in 1761). Therefore in the listing of records that name Edmund Lilly below it is possible that some of the following records named him versus his father. It is impossible to determine if the record does not refer to Edmund as “Rev.” or “Jr.” or “Sr.” I have opted to list most records in which there is no clear identification under those of Rev. Edmund Lilly.
        Beginning in 1785 one of the Edmund Lilly's was the county surveyor since his name appears as such in many of the land warrants and surveys. Ordinarily, survey work was done by a young man since it involved a lot of traveling and field work. The records that list Edmund Lilly as surveyor do not explicitly identify him as “Jr.”, but I am confident that these must refer to Edmund Lilly Jr., and so have included them in the next section under the records of Edmund Lilly Jr. (but I could be wrong, hence this note here).
        “Edmund Lilly sr 337 ac; warrant #398 issued 20 Feb 1785 by John Crump to Edmund Lilly sr for 337 ac on Rocky R, joins his own line where he lives, & on the river; 337 ac surveyed 3 Mar 1785 by Edmund Lilly on Rocky R; border: begins at a pine in said Lilly’s second line, joins Deep Br, & the river; Frank(?) Ryle & David Lilly, chain carriers; grant #370 issued 9 Aug 1786.”(82)
        “Edmund Lilly sr 200 ac; Anson Co warrant #1092 issued 1 Jul 1785 by David Love to Edmund Lilly for 300 [sic] ac joins his own lines & includes Joseph Smith’s improvement; 200 ac surveyed 15 Sep 1785 by Edmund Lilly; border: begins at said Edmund Lilly’s corner spanish oak on bank of Yadkin R & joins Little Cedar Cr; John Ryle & David Lilly, chain carriers; grant #368 issued 9 Aug 1786.”(83)
        “30 Jul 1785 Edmund Lilly sr enters 100 acres on NE side of Pee Dee R; border: his land where Christopher Christian decd formerly lived called the Hollow head; includes the land formerly held by the former line of said tract; includes part of the improvement made by said Christopher Christian decd.”(84)
        “Edmund Lilly sr 100 ac; warrant #452 issued 15 Nov 1785 by John Crump to ‘Edmond’ Lilly sr for 100 ac on NE side of Pee Dee R, begins on the river bank, joins said Lilly’s land where Christopher Christian deceased formerly live called Hollowhead land, & includes land formerly held by ‘the’ former line of said tract and includes part of improvement made by Christopher Christian deceased; 100 ac surveyed 21 Dec 1785 by Edmd Lilly on NE side of Pee Dee R; joins said Lilly’s land where Christopher Christian deceased formerly lived called Holly Head & includes surplus land of said Lilly’s tract; border: begins at a wild ‘plumb’ tree by the old corner hickory stump on the river bank; Charles ‘Coly’ & Wm Coley, chain carriers; entered 30 Jul 1785; grant #418 issued 7 Aug 1787.”(85)

The above 100 acres, and Edmund Lilly, were part of a lawsuit that involved Mark Allen, the brother of Isaac Allen:
        “3 Nov 1786 John McClendon swears: He entered 150 ac in Montgomery Co on NE side of Pee Dee R; the land borders: Edmond Lilly and Mark Allen on lower side of upper Richland Cr. About three months later, Mark Allen reversed the courses of a 640 ac survey so it covered his entry and omitted as much land on ‘the other’ side of the survey. [signed] Jesse McClendon before Peter Randale, J.P.
        “3 Nov 1786 Edmund Randle swears: He heard Mark Allen tell Jesse McClendon he [Allen] reversed the courses on a 640 ac survey and covered his [McClendon’s] 150 ac on upper Richland Cr, and he intended to ‘old the land’ from McClendon. Edmd Randle before Peter Randle, J.P. 3 Nov 1786 to Gov. Richd. Caswell: Jesse McClendon petitions to have a grant to Mark Allen suspended: No. 733 for 640 ac in Mont-gomery Co on E side of Pee Dee R and both sides of Richland Cr ‘perhaps’ joins Lilly, so a ‘legal’ trial by jury can be held. [signed] Jesse McClendon; [on the back] 9 Dec 1786.”(86)
    “19 Apr 1786 to Governor Richard Caswell from Edmond Lilly: I entered 100 ac in Montgomery Co on NE of Pee Dee R and joining the river; [being] surplus land of my own tract and includes my improvement; the land is where Christopher Christian formerly lived called the Holly Hedge land. Mark Al-len had an older entry for 640 ac in Montgomery Co on NE of Pee Dee R and waters of Richland Cr ‘per-haps’ joining Lilly’s lines ‘which’ I have two tracts on Richland Cr which is at least three miles from my entry which will appear by oath of Mr. Thos Meckeson, esq. After I entered and surveyed my land, then ‘he’ came and surveyed my land on the river which is ‘very unjust.’ I ask you to suspend his grant so the dispute can be settled by a jury. Please deliver the return by the bearer David Gray. [signed] Edmond Lilly. Montgomery Co 19 Apr 1786 Thomas Meggerson swears: About two years ago, he was about to buy the above mentioned 640 ac from Mark Allen which is now in dispute between him and Edmond Lilly. Allen said he sould [sic] put his warrant on Richland Cr which he believes is at least three miles from Lilly’s entry and threatened to take John Hill’s improvement, which he believes is ‘four miles.’ He believes Ed-mond Lilly has one or two old surveys on Richland Cr. [signed] Thomas Megginson before Jesse McClendon, J P; [on the back] grant suspended 1 May 1786.”(87)
    “1 May 1786 at Kinston Gov. Richard Caswell to the Secretary of State: I have suspended execution of a grant to Mark Allen due to a complaint ‘in behalf of’ Edmond Lilly; the land is 640 ac in Montgomery Co on NE [side] of Pee Dee R and borders: the river. The land includes 100 ac of Lilly’s entry ‘being’ the sur-plus of Lilly’s ‘tract’ and includes ‘his’ improvement. The land is where Christopher Christian deceased formerly lived ‘called’ Holly hedge land. Certify the same to the Justices of Montgomery Co Court so a trial can be held. [signed] Rd Caswell.”(88)

Edmund Lilly (III) junior Records
Edmund Lilly as a Surveyor
 
       Beginning in 1785 one of the Edmund Lilly's was apparently named the Montgomery County surveyor. I strongly suspect that it was the younger Edmund who was so named. They are listed in chronological order by the date of the survey. The one underlined from 1785 suggests that the surveyor was Edmund Lilly junior although we cannot be 100% sure of this.  
        The fact that an Edmund Lilly junior was listed as a chain carrier in some surveys conducted by Edmund Lilly surprised me at first, and made me doubt whether I had correctly identified the right Edmund Lilly as the surveyor. But I have now found a number of similar surveys done by Mark Allen in which he was listed as both the surveyor and a chain carrier, and there was only one Mark Allen in Montgomery County. So it appears it was not at all unprecedented for the surveyor to serve as chain carrier when the situation necessitated it.
