I have a question concerning a Lewis Ballard that is mentioned in William Eaton’s will of 1759. …”Saint Johns Parish, Granville Co., NC Will of William Eaton, made Feb 19, 1759, probated Mar 20, 1759 Sons: William (lands in Dinwiddie and Brunswick counties in Virginia, except land received of William Scoggan), Thomas, Charles Rust. Daughters: Jane, wife of Colo. Nathaniel Edwards; Anne Haynes, relict of Andrew Haynes; Mary, wife of Robert Jones; Sarah, wife of Charles Johnson; Elizabeth, wife of Daniel Weldon; Martha Eaton. Grandson: Eaton Haynes. Wife and Executrix: Mary. The following lands devised: plantation in Granville “whereon I now live”; land in Granville called Bowsers; land where LEWIS BALLARD and Cormelial Earls live; land in Northampton called Cumboes; lots in the town of Halifax; land “where Granville Court house is built”; land on Tabbs Creek; lot in the town of Petersburg; land in Granville called Gould’s; land on Little Fishing Creek called Youngs; land on Andersons Swamp; two tracts on Smiths Creek called Hughes and Rayborn’s; lot in Halifax adjoining the Market place and Main street. A large number of negroes bequeathed, some being on plantations at Tabbs Creek and others on Mush Island. Witnesses: Wm. Person, Jas. Paine, Richard Coleman. Clerk of the Court: Daniel Weldon.”… Does anyone have a record or information on Lewis Ballards ancestry prior to Granville county? His name comes up quite a lot as he is mentioned as a tenant on William Eaton’s land.
