Colonial Pettypool-Poole-P'Poole Families

Phillip Pettypool[5], and Ephraim[6] and Henry[6]Pool
(of William[1] , William[2] ,William[3], ?Stephen [4]).

Edgecombe County, North Carolina

During the French and Indian War, the militia in Edgecombe County, North Carolina, had three Pettypool soldiers on a muster roll from the 1750's (1). Corporals Phillip Pettypool and Stephen Pettypool were brothers, sons of William and Frances Pettypool of Lunenburg County, Virginia.  This third Pettypool was another Phillip, probably younger, since he was a private soldier.

   Petypool, Phillip, soldier

The possible age for the second Phillip can only be crudely approximated by making assumptions about the date of the muster roll, say 1759, and the minimum age of soldiers in the militia, about 16. Soldier Phillip would then have been born before 1743. Corporal Phillip was born 13 March 1730 (2) and therefore was not likely to have had a son at age 13. Corporal Stephen Pettypool was born 30 October 1721 (2), and would have been age 22 when Phillip was born. Stephen and Phillip had two other brothers who came to North Carolina in the nearby county of Dobbs, namely Ephraim (b c.1735) and Abraham Pettypool (b.c1730-1734). Of these choices, Stephen Pettypool (wife Sarah ?Colwell) was the oldest, and more probably the father of Soldier Phillip Pettypool.  It can not be overlooked that this Phillip could also have been a son of an as yet unknown Pettypool.

No further record of Soldier Phillip can be substantiated in North Carolina. Corporal Phillip Pettypool lived in Edgecombe County and Dobbs County, North Carolina. Several of the sons and/or their offspring moved to Camden District, South Carolina, in about 1768 -1770, namely Corporal Stephen Pettypool, Abraham Pettypool, and Ephraim Pettypool. It is likely that the Revolutionary War soldier, Phillip Pettypool of Camden District, South Carolina, and Warren County, Georgia, was the younger Soldier Phillip Pettypool of Edgecombe County.

Camden District (Formerly Craven County), South Carolina

Phillip Pettypool moved to Camden District, South Carolina by 1770 (3). Philip married Mary Tapley, as will be shown below. Also joining Phillip was Ephraim Pettypool, Jr., likely his son, who married Lucretia. They settled in what is now Sumter and Claremont Counties, South Carolina.

Ephraim's name is difficult to read in the 1776 defense roll, and has been mistranscribed as Ephraim Wesley Jr. The "Pool" in Ephraim X Petey Pool has a smudge over "oo" and the signature is extended into the next column, crowding the adjacent signature of "Thos X Woodard"
