Colonial Pettipool-Poole-P'Poole Families


IV.a. John Pettypool[4] (of William[1] , William[2] , Seth[3] ) (born 1725) married c1748 Sarah ?Sanford.


John[4] Pettypool's wife, Sarah, was most likely a Sanford, related to a Robert Sanford of Lunenburg County, Virginia, who died about 1747 (1). In that year John Pettypool was appointed guardian to John Sanford, orphan of this Robert Sanford, and John's father, Seth[3] Pettypool became one of the admininstrators of Robert Sanford's estate (2). Another orphan, Robert Sanford, later lived with John and Sarah Pettypool in Granville County, North Carolina.

1747 March Court, Lunenburg County. Ordered that the Church Wardens of Cumberland Parish in this County do bind out Robert Sanford, orphan of Robert Sanford, deceased, according to law.

1747 April Court, Lunenburg County. On the motion of Seth Petty Pool and Francis Ray allege that they became bound with Ann Sanford to this court for her due and faithful administration of Robert Sanford, her late husband, deceased, that Ann has since married John Forrest, and that Ann and John are wasting, squandering , and embezzling the estate of said Robert Sandford, whereby said complainants are in danger of suffering by reason of their suretyship. Ordered that John Forrest and Ann be summoned to appear at
next court to show cause why the estate should not be delivered up to the said securities.

1747 May Court, Lunenburg County. John Forrest and Ann his wife, late widow and administratrix of Robert Sanford, deceased, failing to give Seth Pettypool and Francis Ray security pursuant to order of this Court, it is ordered that John Forrest and wife Ann do deliver up the said estate to Pettypool and Ray to be disposed of by them in such manner as they think best for their indemnity.

1747 October Court, Lunenburg County. John Sandford, orphan of Robert Sandford deceased, came into court, and being of lawful age for that purpose, made choice of John Pettypool to be his guardian. Granted if Pettypool gives bond & security at next court.

1747 November Court, Lunenburg County. John Pettypool is appointed guardian of John Sanford, orphan of Robert Sanford, deceased, and with Seth Pettypool his security acknowledged bond.

John Pettypool was not listed with his father, Seth Pettypool, in the 1748 Lunenburg County list of tithes (3), rather, he was in a separate household with John Sanford. This suggested that John and Sarah Pettypool were married by 1748. Since John Sanford was tithable, hence at least 16 years of age, and was under the age of majority in 1747 but at least 14 years of age in order to name his guardian, he was born between 1726-1732. John Pettypool, born January 06, 1724/25, was not much older than his ward, John Sanford.

John Pettypool lived on Aaron's Creek, which forms part of the county line between Halifax and Mecklenburg Counties, formerly both carved out of Lunenburg County, Virginia. John Pettypool was listed on court records in 1753 in Halifax County, Virginia and his land on Aaron's Creek crossed the county line (4). This was the same location where his parents, Seth and Martha Pettypool, and his brother, William Pettypool lived.

There were two John Pettypools in Granville County taking the oath of allegiance in 1778. There is no record of John and Sarah Pettypool naming a son John. Peter[4] and Elizabeth Journey Pettypool had a son John but he was a child at this time (1780-1790). Seth[4] and Mary Wood Pettypool did name a son John who married Ellender Green. This John was born c1761 and is likely the John P. Pool listed above. John Pettypool Jr was later found in 1785 on Tax Lists.

John Pettypool continued to purchase land in Halifax County, Virginia, during and after the conclusion of the Revolutionary War (13). The purchaser was indeed John Pettypool and wife Sarah, because in a 1789 deed John was identified as the brother of William Pettypool of Halifax County.

John was dead by January 1803 when his children began the division of his lands, and his estate settlement papers were first dated 30 December 1803 and recorded 25 June 1804 in Granville County. His heirs were named in several court records (8, 17), including the deed below:

Logustine, the youngest son, took care of his mother, Sarah, by 1811. Logustine[5] Pettypool (born c1775) was appointed executor of John Pettypool's estate in 1812 after declaring to the court that his mother, Sarah Pettypool, was "insane" (8, 18).

In the October 1813 inventory of the estate papers of her husband, John[4], Sarah was mentioned by her son Logustine as being deceased. She apparently died 1811-1812, as she was not recorded on the 1812 tax list, and Logustine had possession of the estate (8, 17).

Children of John and Sarah Pettypool
Not Intended To Be An Exhaustive Study, Rather An Aide To Descendants


Agnes[5] Pettypool Dixon.
Agnes Pettypool Dixon married Jacob Dixon and had children Sanford Dixon, John Dixon, Jacob Dixon, Margaret Dixon Humphreys and William Dixon. Estate inventory records state "We allott unto the heirs of Aggy Dixon deceased (wife of Jacob Dixon)" which clears up any confusion due to the deed transcription above (17). Agnes died prior to 1803, and Jacob was likely dead, too. Jacob and Agnes Pettypool Dixon lived in Person County, North Carolina. In 1777 and again in 1790 they were enumerated in Caswell County:

1790 US Census, Nash District, Caswell County, North Carolina
Dixon, Jacob [married Agnes Pettypool]
Haliburton, John
Haliburton, Charles
Haliburton, Thomas
Pettypool, William [married Frances Owen in Granville County, 1797]
Rooks, Buckner [married Frances Pettypool]

Jacob and Agnes Dixon's children were all adults in 1803. They lived in Person County. Below are a few records that document part of this family (19).

1816 July 31, Sanford Dixson, Jacob Dixson, Henry Humphries and wife Margaret Humphries, all of Person County, North Carolina, deed to Gabriel Jones of Granville County for land inherited by said Sanford Dixson, Jacob Dixson and Margaret Humphries from John Pettypool, dec'd...

1817 May 8, Aggy Dixon, wife of Jacob Dixon, was a daughter of John Pettypool, dec'd...

William Dixon's land passed on to his daughter, Martha, named in Granville County land records (20).

1820 February 9, John Davis and wife Martha Davis, of Pittsylvania County, Virginia, to Gabriel Jones of Granville County for $57.20, the one-half of the land that William Dixon, deceased, inherited from John Pettypool, deceased, which descended to said Martha Davis, daughter of William Dixon; proved February Court 1820 (1820 February 7, Martha, wife of John Davis, deposes that she freely deeded the one half interest of the land William Dixon, deceased, inherited from John Pettipool, deceased, and Martha, who was the daughter of William Dixon (Martha also called Elizabeth in this transaction))

John Dixon lived in Person County. His legacy from his grandfather, John Pettypool, was confiscated by the Sheriff of Granville County to settle debts (21).

1803 December 10, Person County, Solomon Draper to William Dixon, 94 acres north side of Hyco beginning at large pine on Edmund Dixon's line, corner of orphans of Robert Black, widow McCain's line, Joseph McGehu's line, 94 acres tract conveyed to said Draper by John Pearson.

Margaret "Peggy" Dixon married Henry Humphries of Person County. Henry's sister, Martha Humphries, had married Thomas Halliburton, brother of Margaret Halliburton, who was the wife of Stephen Pettypool. Charles Halliburton in the record below was a brother of Margaret and Thomas Halliburton (22).

1797 November 7, Person County, Elkanah Parish from John Parish, 50 acres on Bluewing Creek adjoining Henry Humphries line, Pittman's line; signed: John Parish; witnesses: Lene __, Jesse Ragan; recorded 1798

The following 1828 deed (23) to a Pool Dixon (married Catherine L. Parish, 31 December 1821, Person County) is very intriguing, and the relationship of Pool Dixon to the Jacob and Agnes Pettypool Dixon family must be close. The Lewis Wilkerson named in the deed was the brother-in-law of Martha Pettypool (married William Wilkerson) and Sarah Pettypool (married David Wilkerson, Jr.), daughters of John and Sarah Pettypool.

1828 Person County, Abel L. Parrish of Granville County, Kentucky [sic] to Pool Dixon for 25 acres Aaron's and Donaldson Creek, land said Parrish bought from Lewis Wilkerson adjoining lands of Jo. Person and Wm. Little

Jacob Dixon Jr was likely the Jacob Dixon who lived in Person County with wife Margaret. He died in 1854, testate, naming daughters Leatha Dixon and Frances Dixon. Other children were Peter Dixon, John G. Dixon, Nelson Dixon, David W. Dixon, Jacob Dixon, and Eliza Boyd Dixon (24).
