Notes


Dr. John D. Landrum Jr.

In 1720 John sold land in Essex County that had been left to Jane Landrum under the will of Martin Johnson.

In 1722 John purchased 595 acres of land in Spotsylvania County from Larkin and Hannah Chew. On October 7, 1729 he sold this land for 12,000 pounds of tobacco.

In 1734 the western part of Spotsylvania County became part of Orange County. In that year John was listed in Orange County as "Surveyor of Roads." In the same year he also patented 250 acres back of "Great Mountain," (now the Blue Ridge Mountains) at the mouth of the south fork of the Shenandoah River.

In 1736 he was granted a patent to 650 acres in the Great Fork of the Rappahanock River.

In 1738 he executed a deed of lease and release to Peter Refnough conveying land in Orange County.

John was involved in lawsuits with William Catlett in 1738, 1739, and 1740.

In 1746 the Ray Research Collection refers to a grant to John.

John moved with six of his sons (Thomas stayed in Virginia but later moved to Oglethorpe County, Georgia) to Orange (Chatham County), North Carolina where he received a land grant acres from Lord Granville in 1754. He was listed as a taxpayer in Chatham County in 1755. He returned to England, outfitted ships, and brought settlers by way of Cape Fear to the interior where he sold them plots from the grant.

As the Revolutionary War approached and a radical spirit took hold, the settlers became dissatisfied that they had been required to pay John Landrum, Jr., for the land, which they decided should have been free.

In 1774 at the height of the controversy, John, Jr. died. His son John Landrum III, who was a Tory, took charge and was murdered by Ephriam Alexander during a riot of settlers. Alexander was briefly jailed but then released without trial by the Revolutionary state legislature, which was apparently not too concerned about the death of a Tory. John's son Thomas meted out his own justice by seeking out his father's murderer and killed him. Thomas fled to Georgia to his uncle Joseph Landrum of St. Paul's Parish when he was released on bond, but he was captured and brought back to Hillsborough for trial. In the trial that followed, Thomas was acquitted for the murder, but he was convicted on a charge of horse stealing, which perhaps he committed during his escape, "condemned to death as a Tory," and hanged.

Drusills Landrum

There is a MAJOR problem here. This Drucilla Landrum is being claimed by researchers to belong to two different families but married to the same man, William Hawkins Anderson. Henry Marshall Landrum is also listed as her father. I've not seem a census so cannot help sort this problem out.
