    My husband is descendant of the William Chambers you are researching. We did some research in the genealogy library in Danville, Va. and according to "The Line of Mary Madeline Harrison" compiled by Bettye M. Green (Mrs. M. Leonard Green) 2243 South Blvd., Houston, TX 77908 she states: "William Chambers was born in Albermarle Co. Va., probably before 1729 and died in the spring of 1801, Person Co. NC. It is believed he was the son of Edward and Elizabeth Harralson Chambers of Hanover Co. VA. He married about 1750 in Albermarle Co. VA., Elizabeth (Patterson): abt. 1722- 7/7/1818 and they went to NC in 1751. He purchased land on Storey's Creek in St. Lawrence District in Orange Co. NC in 1753. By 1780 he owned 6,118 acres of land. That area became Caswell Co. in 1777 and Person Co. in 1793". She then lists the names of all 14 children if you do not have them let me know. There are no birth and death date but there are marriage dates and spouses names for some. One of the sons was William, Jr. - he had two sons: Henry and Joel. Henry had nine children, one of whom was named Allen, who is my husband's namesake. Allen moved to Texas about in the early 1850's. We have good knowledge from that time on this line of the Chambers family.

    I see that several of you have roots in the Caswell Co and Person Co NC Harrelsons. Have any of you looked at the message from Mabel Chambers #133 on the Chambers board where she gives the children of William Chambers bn@1728. Of the 14 children, there are two married to Harrelsons: one Jane Chambers who married Ezekial Harralson (who died 1779)and my John Chambers who is believed to have married Rebecca Harrelson. Josias Chambers married in 1783 (Caswell Co NC) Nancy Stanfield. Elizabeth Chambers md Hugh Barnett. The Chambers, Stanfields, Harralsons, Barnetts, and Adams seem to be interrelated for several generations. Can anyone shed light on these families of Caswell Co, NC and then Person Co when it was split from Caswell. Thanks Meredith Adams Sheridan

    Notes:

    From "Book of Imigrants" found in Person Co. library
    The Muster of those that Live in Ye Treasurors Plant
    James Chambers in the Dutie 1620
    Living in Virginia Feb 16, 1623 At the Eastern Shore = James Chambers
    (James was the only Chambers listed in VA at that time).
    Church records show Edward's first son as named James. Since it was the custom to name the first son after the father's father and Edward lived in New Kent Co., very close to Williamsburg, I believe that it is reasonable to conclude that James is father of Edward.

    1998-2007 Swyrich Corporation - Certificate # 2536320072400681853 - names of early Settlers in US. They list James Chambers who setled in VA in 1620 among the name of early Settlers and James being the earliest.


    In April Court, 1625, James Chambers was placed upon a committee; again, in 1634, he was mentioned. Also, in 1625, Thomas and John Chambers were recognized in some way by the Virginia Court. The above were English representatives of the Chambers family.
