    Father Gamaliel Earls 
    Mother Martha 
    Census (Family) 1769  Granville, NC, USA Find all individuals with events at this location 
    Notes 
    • From Jim Earles, per Joe W. Stout:
      Gamaliel immigrated to Brunswick County in the Virginia Colony from England. In the early 1740's the family moved across the Roanoke River to Granville County, NC but lived very near the border and over the years family members also owned land &, at various times, lived on the Virginia side.
      The surname was clearly Earle upon arrival from England but is most often recorded as Earles or Earls and sometimes as Earl, Erle, Erls, Url, Urls, Yearl, & Yearls. For example, Warren County records for the 1782 marriage of Obediah & Joyce Cunningham show the name as Urls.
    • Gamaliel & Martha lived in Granville County, NC, near the Virginia border. They lived in the Fishing Creek District in 1749, and William Eaton's 1759 Will mentions Gamaliel Earles living on his land. Gamaliel and his sons were tobacco planters; and on 15 May 1761 he purchased 493 acres located on both sides of Ready Branch of Smith Creek in Granville County. He sold the same parcel on 23 February 1762. Gamaliel and his son, William, are listed in the1762 Smith Creek District tax record list and Gamaliel is identified as insolvent (most likely because he had sold the land being taxed). Gamaliel paid Granville County taxes in 1769 & 1771, and on 07 Jan 1772 paid for 40 ac in Bute County on the West side of Henderson's Swamp Creek. On 19 Aug 1772, that deed was assigned to Williams Earles. Gamaliel purchased wedges at an estate auction 11 Jan 1773, but he is not on later tax lists and probably died before 1775. Martha is not listed on the 1762 land sale deed, but that apparently was
      not a requirement in North Carolina. However, she may have died before 1770.
      As noted above, William Earles was living with Gamaliel Earle in 1762 & in 1772 Gamaliel assigned the Bute County land to him. William later assigned that land to Obediah Earls, who sold the 40 acres on 22 Dec 1792. William Earl paid Bute County Taxes in 1766, bought 100 acres in 1772 and sold that land in 1777. He paid Warren County taxes in 1779 & 1781. In 1781, he is listed as owing 136 shillings with 100 shillings to be allowed for insolvent mistakes, (which means he probably moved before the 1791 tax date). William Earles paid taxes in Montgomery County, NC, in 1782 and was on the 1790 census list for that county. In 1800 he was on the Rutherford County census list and in 1803 his Will was probated in Rutherford County.
