Albemarle County:

1729-32. James Tuder paid quit rents to his majesty the king, 29 Sep 1729 to Mar 1732, for 100 acres of land (N. C. Colonial Records, book 22, Pg 243).  The land was in Chowan.  See Bertie County where James bought land.


Anson:  Formed 1750 from Bladen.

  1. Owen Tudor, born 1743 in VA; son of Henry Tudor born 1720 in VA. Married Lucy Harris in VA about 1765. Died in Anson.  Originally in Cumberland County.

1800 Morris Tedder, 6 slaves.  Indian ancestry.  In 1810 listed as Tutor in Robeson.  Supposed father of Ethelred/Etheldread Tutor and Dumas Tutor, see Robeson County census.


Beaufort: Formed 1712 from Craven.

  1. Corn Tax, no Tedders.
  2. Land listing, no Tedders.
  3. Beaufort/Hyde Jury List, no Tedders.

1755 tax list. Benjamin Tedder, no dependents(this just means that no child is 16 or older).  Most likely Benjamin is an older son of George Tuder/Tedder; named after his uncle John’s son Benjamin, based on name and location.  See below.  I believe this Benjamin became deceased.  The Benjamin in Richmond most closely relates to be a brother of Thomas of Cumberland, son of Jesse, who I believe was a son of Samuel of Surry, VA.  Since we know that George’s brothers, Samuel and Jacob, are younger than George, see Edgecombe County, Benjamin isn’t likely to be one of their sons.  George Tudor with sons George Jr and Thomas as tithables on tax list.  Jesse who I believe is a younger son by name, location, and association with brothers and other kin is not listed because he is younger than sixteen.  George was son of Samuel Tuder of Surry VA who left Surry and was first documented in Edgecombe County; after 1755 he went back to that part of Edgecombe that became Halifax County and can be picked up in Halifax County.

  1. 1764. George Tudor. com: Tudor census records 1670-1790. This is probably Jr.

Joseph Tetterton 1 16+, 1 under 15, 2 females; believe this is brother of William. This family was in that part of Beaufort that became Pitt County (see 1780/87 Pitt County); they then came back to Beaufort, then went to Hyde County where William Sr died; William and Nancy came back to Beaufort; see 1820.  Birth of William Tetterton, son of William, son of the William who passed in Hyde County.

  1. 1796. Birth of James Tetterton, son of William Jr, and father of William Rufus Tetterton, b abt 1835. Married Sarah A Coplin, date unknown.

Craven: From now extinct Bath County in 1712.  Note the family below moved a lot.  See Hyde, Beaufort, and Pitt.

  1. 1769. Joseph and Sarah Tedder found in tax records. I think this is a name corruption; believe this is almost certainly Joseph Teterton documented in 1780 in adjacent Pitt County and Joseph Tetterton in 1790 Beaufort.
  2. 1777. Inventory of Abraham Fordham taken 15 Dec. Proved before William Tudor (probably William Tetterton).

1780 Samuel Tuder born 8 Sep, son of Owen, son of Henry b abt 1720, Surry VA.  Owen Sr moved to NC around 1772.  From an earlier input.

1780, 5 Mar.  Birth of Betsy Tedder, daughter of William Tedder, son of Benjamin Tudor, son of John Tedder of Surry Virginia.

Note: My personal thoughts on the Thomas and Jesse Tedder below is that Thomas is Jesse’s son and brother of Benjamin who was first documented in Richmond County.  Believe this family was at one time in that part of Anson County that later became Richmond County as Thomas married Winney Turner who lived in that part of on Anson County that became Richmond.  A descendant of this family also believed that Jesse was Thomas’s father.  Believe that Jesse was another son of Samuel of Surry.  The name Jesse, Benjamin, and Thomas occur over and over in this family.  See Beaufort, Dobbs, and Johnston Counties.

Unknown Date.  First documented in 1790 census. Thomas and Winney Tedder (Winney daughter of Moses Turner of Richmond County.  See 1790 census images and other information for Richmond County, NC: Moses included in 7 free persons of color and 1 slave; Lumbee Indian extraction.  See year 1825 below.)  Children, Scion (Per LDs born in 1772), Elijah b between 1790 and 1800 (per Alabama census), Easter b abt 1784, John b between 1775 and 1784, Mary b abt 1780, Tempy 1790, Winifred b abt 1777.   Note: Reviewed 1777-1780 Cumberland Taxables and land records, no Tedders.  Have gone through every record I could find; Thomas and Jesse must have appeared in Cumberland from that part of Anson County that became Richmond County after 1780 and before 1790.  Thomas had to have lived in Anson County in the early 1770’s based on age of first child and because he married Winnie, daughter of Moses Turner who lived in Anson at this time.  Note that the children of Thomas have names that are mostly those used by Lumbee Indians; however, only Winney is a Lumbee.

1784 approximate.  William Tedder and brother-in-law William Redding among others to lay off road from the end of new road opened in Wake County to county line into the road to Daniel’s Ford on Cape Fear River.  From some Tedder records prior to 1790 from another researcher.  Note:  At this point in time Cumberland and Wake were adjacent counties.  See 1818 will of William Redding.  William is a son of Benjamin Tudor; his descendant’s DNA markers match perfectly at 37 markers to a son of Harmon Tedder, another son of Benjamin.

1785 William Fedder (Tedder).  Land entry 210 acres between Robert Cobb’s line.  Believe this is William Tedder married to Martha Redding, father of Betsy, Nancy, Littleton, Benjamin W, and Elizabeth. 

1786, 17 Sep. Birth of Nancy Tedder, daughter of William Tedder, son of Benjamin Tudor.

1790, 30 June.  Birth of Littleton Tedder, son of William Tedder, son of Benjamin Tudor.

  1. Jesse Tedder, Fayette District. Code: 16+, less than 16, females, slaves. 10200. Note:  William Tedder, Fayette District, 12300 (The 1 is William, one of the boys less than 16 is Littleton, the three females are William’s wife Martha Redding, and daughters Betsy and Nancy; who is second boy?).  Note: Pick William up next in Wake County then Chatham, then Robeson, then Georgia.  Thomas Tedder, Fayette District, 23600.  Thomas left will when he died in 1800; children later lived with son John.

Edgecombe:  Formed 1732 from Bertie; not confirmed by assembly until 1741.

Note 1:  My interpretation of the land entries from 1752 through 1754 below:  George Tedder applies for a grant of 200 acres of land near William Blackburn in 1752.  Samuel and Jacob Tedder, which evidence indicates are George’s brothers, are chain carriers for the surveyor measuring the land in 1753.  In 1754 the state only grants George 136 of the 200 acres he requested, which he immediately sells to John Hargrave.   George can next be picked up on the tax list in Beaufort County in 1755 with his two sons, George Jr and Thomas; younger son Jesse is not listed because he is younger than 16.  Benjamin Tedder who I believe was another son of Samuel is also listed in this census.  George then comes back to Edgecombe and buys land beside the land he sold.  This land is in the part of Edgecombe that became Halifax County.  Pick George up in 1760 in Halifax County.  George probably settled on the land several years or more before applying for the land grant, the same as his father Samuel did back in Surry County VA.

Note 2: These Tedders, etc., below are with certainty the tithables of Samuel Tudor/Tuder mentioned in Surry County, VA.  They disappear from Surry after 1749.  Believe these tithables are George (believe named after Samuel’s father George Tuder), Jacob, Samuel, Benjamin, and possibly William; William could also be a son of one of Samuel of Surry’s tithables since William is first mentioned in 1760.  In addition, I firmly believe Samuel of Surry was a brother of John Tuder/Tedder of Surry; they had similar names, lived in the same county, were born in the 1690s, and DNA reinforces the same conclusion: by my research, a descendant of Samuel’s son George Tedder is off only one DNA marker out of 67 markers, DSY 456, from me a descendant of John Tedder’s son Benjamin.  In addition, George’s descendant is off just two genetic distances at 67 markers from John Tedder’s other son John Tudor’s descendant.  Most likely George came first to Edgecombe and occupied the land that he later applied for a land grant and then his brothers joined him. Note 3:  English son naming conventions at this period of time was that the first son be named after the father’s father, in this case George Tuder; the second son after the mother’s father, in this case probably Jacob; and the third son after the father, in this case Samuel.  As Samuel’s brother was dead when the fourth son was born, he probably named is fourth son after his deceased brother’s son, Benjamin.  Don’t know who Jesse was named after.

1752, 12 Oct: George Tedder listed in Warrant for 200 acres on Deep Creek near William Blackburn.  Internet.

  1. 1753. Samuel Tedder and Jacob Tedder land rev scc. From a Tedder researcher. Note: From research of North Carolina warrants, surveys, and land grant data, a surveyor measured boundaries of land using two court-sworn chain carriers.  The surveyor drew to scale the boundaries of the land.  This drawing was called a platt and the boundary description was called a certificate of Survey.  The certificate of survey included the names of the sworn chain carriers indicated as scc(Sworn Chain Carriers).  To save money, chain carriers were almost always younger relatives of the person to receive the land grant.  Thus Samuel and Jacob, the chain carriers, are almost certainly younger siblings of George since we know George’s two sons (see 1755 Beaufort).
  2. 1753. Jacob and Samuel Tedder clerks of Edgecombe Court. From research of Dee Thompson, a Bladen County NC Genealogist, as listed in the Tedder Family Genealogy Forum.  Note: While I don’t doubt this information, I do wonder if Dee Thompson confused being a clerk of the court with having to be sworn by the court to be a chain carrier.

Perquimans:  Berkeley changed to Perquimans in 1681.

Due to long documentation of some inputs and to allow inputs in a chronological order, have identified documentation of these inputs at the end of the inputs with either a (1*) or (2*), and put the documentation at the end of Perquimans County inputs.

Note:   I believe Edward Titterton of Gloucester VA was the father of William Titterton/Tetterton.  Edward was originally documented in York County VA as a Tedderton in 1659, he was born around 1634 per info he gave in a deposition.  Gloucester was formed from York(See my Virginia file).  Edward or his wife is listed in multiple entries between 1675 and 1685: 1. 930 acres escheat land formely granted to Edward Titterton; grantee Mary Titterton; 2.  Same land, grantee Mary Dickerson, Edward’s remarried widow.  3.  Same land, grantee John Dickerson; entry indicates Mary is deceased.  Another researcher has identified the Lilly family living near Edward and I believe the Lilly family and William Tetterton moved together to Berkley Precinct, later Perquimans, NC.

1679, 23 September.  William Titterton married Margarette Hall.  Rev Thomas Gordon officiated at wedding.  Berkeley Precinct.   Note: Margaret’s maiden name was Bibing.  She was born around 1650 and first married Samuel Hall, b 1640, on 15 (torn) 1676.  Samuel died 1679.  Had son William Hall born 24 Dec 1674 in Perquimans and possibly son Daniel, 16 Jan 1675 or 1676.  See 1691 and 1698 below.

1682, 27 Dec.  Birth of William Tetterton, son of William Tetterton and Margarette Hall, in Berkley Precinct, NC.  Married Sarah Lilly.  Had sister Elizabeth Tetterton, birth date unknown.

1702 Titables: Peter Paywell (Pavel) 2, Himself and Will Tetterton.  (This is the William who later married Sarah Lilly).

  1. 1702. William Tetterton married Sarah Lilly as witnessed by Thomas Evans and step-father Peter Paywel(Pavel). From another researcher. Note:  This date has to be false: According to a Lilly family descendant from information available on the Internet, Sarah Lilly was born 15 June 1691 and her sister Hannah who married James Sitterson was born 29 Sep 1694.  Therefore, Sarah would only have been around ten years old in 1702.  The marriage must have occurred later, possibly around 1710 to 1712; Sarah is first documented as William’s wife in 1713, below.  In addition, cannot find Thomas Evans in Perquimans at this time; also the 1718/19 land and poll tax lists William with only one tithable, himself.  Note:  The only children that can be reasonably documented for William and Sarah are Samuel, James, William and John.

She was also married to Christopher Gale and had Penelope Gale, who married William Little, making them “brother and sister” in the will. She was Thomas Harvey’s half-sister.  The children of William Tetterton and James Sitterson” were mentioned because they were the children of Sarah and Hannah Lilly, daughters of Hannah Harvey by her second marriage to John Lilley (John Lilley marries Hannah Phelps “Last of March 1690” Berkeley Parish records.)  Hannah Harvey Lilley is mentioned in other Harvey family docs as “Aunt Hannah Lilley.” Her first husband was Jonathan Phelps.

Rowan:  Formed 1753 from Anson.

Note:  There were two families who used similar names in Rowan.  Hans Johann George Teter was born in 1703 in Schwaigern, Wuerttemburg, Germany, and died 23 March 1743/1744 in Orange County Virginia. (See my Orange County Virginia file).  Wife was Maria Margareha Luddmann.  After Johann George died in Orange County VA this family with the Reverend Henkle and his family moved to Rowan County and four children married into the Henkle family.  Children who came to Rowan were Johann Michael (Jacob), Maria, George, Paul, and Mary Barbara, Philip, and Rosana.  In 1760 or 61 Rev Henkle became concerned about the Indian raids and the family moved to Augusta County, Virginia.  Note that Jacob Teeder is not listed again after this date in Rowan.  Next documentation of Teaders/Teeters in Rowan is not until 1766.  Note 2: I believe the Samuel and George first documented in 1766 are Samuel and son George from Edgecombe.  Note similarity of names from Edgecombe.

  1. 1750. George and Jacob Teater in Rowan militia. From another researcher; I can’t verify this input. This could be the George and Jacob Teter above who came from Orange County Va.

Tyrrell County, North Carolina Deed Book 1 p, 108].  By age this has to be William who married Sarah Lilly and who is first listed in Perquimans.  See 1759 will of William Tetterton Jr who mentions wife Elizabeth.

1747/1748. North Carolina Processioners’ Book: William Tetterton (Tetherton in 1748) listed as present at two land transactions.

  1. 1748. William Tetterton witnessed will.
  2. 1751. Birth of Benjamin Tutterton, Revolutionary War soldier. See Dobbs County.  Grandson of William, son of John or William.  Most likely son of John as it appears all three brothers, William, John, and Benjamin can be found together later in Dobbs County.

(Abstract of NC Wills).

1755 tax list. John and William Tatorton, sons of William Tetterton. (See Perquimans).  Note:  Both John and William had sons named John and William. Benjamin and Thomas are also sons of one or the other.  Also believe Matthew in Wayne could be a son. Two Johns, one William, Benjamin and Thomas later moved to Dobbs.  We do not know the children of Samuel or James, who should be brothers of John or William.

1752-1757. Birth of Thomas Tetterton; pension stated born 1757, but 1800 census has him over 45, and Muhlenberg KY 1830 has him between 70 and 80 and in 1840 is listed as between 80 and 90.  Died Oct 1843 in Muhlenberg County, Kentucky.  If census and pension application are correct, then Thomas is most likely a son of William who passed in 1759, below.  Thomas moved a lot: Enlisted in militia in 1780 in Lincoln County, in 1781 in Dobbs militia, then that part of Dobbs that became Green, then Lenore, married Ann Higgins 5 Jan 1790 in Wayne County, moved from Lenore in 1797 to Duplin, and finally to Muhlenberg County, Kentucky in 1803.  NOTE:  John, Benjamin, and a William can be picked up later in Dobbs County.

  1. 1757. Birth of John Tetterton; this has to be a son of William, see 1761 below for son of John. Note: Born Tyrrell; NC Militia. Pension R 10441.

Note 1:  This has to be William Jr; only one William is listed in the 1754/5 tithables.

  1. 1761. Birth of John Tettleton, son of John Tetterton (Tatorton in 1755, above). Born near Mouth of Roanoke River. Married Jane Farish.  Died 1845, Clark, Alabama. (Rev War soldier).

Date not definedWilliam Tetterton on pension application said he was born on island (Edenton), near mouth of river.  Believe this is brother of John in 1761 above: believe born at same place.

1776-1780.  See Dobbs County for Revolutionary War records of the two Johns, William, Thomas, and Benjamin Tettertons.

  1. 1779. William Taterton signed petition to form new county. Believe this almost certainly the William who married Hanna Stone; believe the other William went with his two brothers to Dobbs County.
  2. 1782. William Terteton on tax list.
  3. 1784. William Tetterton on tax list, 1 poll.

1785, 12 Aug.  William Tetterton married Ann Kelley.  Believe this is son of the William who died in 1759 and who first married Hanna Stone.

  1. 1786. William Tetterton on poll tax list, 1 poll.

1788, 24 Sep.  Marriage of Epfraim Tetterton to Sarah Hollis.  This is probably son of William who married Hanna Stone.

1790 census: William Tetterton 1 16+, 2 females.  Epfraim Tetterton 1 16+, 2 less 16, 1 female.

1790 census.  William Tetterton Jr.

1781 tax list: No Tedders.

1783, 17 May.  Birth of Elizabeth Tedder.  Married Johnson Poe in 1804.  Died 30 Jan 1867 in Allen County, Ky.  Probably one of eight daughters of John Tedder (See Chatham County) or daughter of Benjamin Tudor, Jr (See Granville County).

1784 approximate.  William Tedder and brother-in-law William Redding among others to lay off road from the end of new road opened in Wake County to county line into the road to Daniel’s Ford on Cape Fear River.  From Some Tedder records prior to 1790 from another researcher.  See Cumberland County.

  1. Hannah Tedder married Jacob Moonehan on 28 Feb. Possible daughter of Benjamin Tudor(See Granville County).

1790 census: Solomon Teddis (Later Tedder).  William Tipper 1 16+, 2 0-16, 2 f.  Jacob Moneyham, married to Hanna Tedder, 1 16+, 2 0-16, 2f.  Note: Per DNA, Solomon Tedder is not related to the other Tudors or Tedders in NC.  It is believed he got the Tedder name by corruption.

1796, 18 Feb. Birth of Benjamin (W) Tedder near Raleigh.  This is William Tedder’s son, Benjamin W.

  1. Solomon Tedder married Sarah Powell 24 March See 1790. See 1790.

1798 James (W) Tedder married Nancy Barnes 1 September.  Son of John, see Chatham.

1800 census Solomon Tedder.

  1. 28 Dec, William Tutor married Telletha Powell; daughter was Dorcas Tutor.
  2. Wake County Census, no Tedders.


Washington: Formed from Western Tyrell in 1791; the following William Tetterton carried over from 1790 Tyrell.

  1. 1800. William Tetterton, 3 0-10, 1 45+, f 1 0-10, 1 10-16, 1 26-44, 1 45+. Wife is Ann Kelly, see Tyrrell County, 1785.  This is son of William who died in 1759; this William first married Hanna Stone.
  2. 1810. William Tetterton, 3 10-16 and 1 45+; f 1 0-10, 1 16-26, 1 45+.

1819, June 19.  Benjamin Tetterton born June 19, 1819.  Died Sept. 20, 1882. His wife was Mary Jane NcMair.  His children were Henry J., John Whitefield, Benjamin T., Mary Ellen, Spencer, Deborah and there could be others.

  1. 1820. Benjamin Tetterton, son of William and believed father of Benjamin born 1819. 3 0-10, 1 26-44; f 16-25. Jane Tetterton (Since William and wife appear to be deceased, believe this is daughter of William who was the female between 16-26 in 1810; in her household is one of her brothers and a sister: she is head of household because she is oldest survivor in household).  1 16-25; f 1 16-25, 1 26-44.


Wayne: (1779 from Western part of Dobbs County)

Note:  Don’t know when Matthew and his family came to Wayne County.  They are not documented in Wayne in 1790 or 1800 and had to come after the 1800 census.  Most likely Matthew came from Beaufort County and is one of the three 16+ in William Tetterton’s 1990 census.  The Joseph below I believe is from Beaufort and was a brother of Matthew’s father.  Zechariah cannot be a child of William as William has no children in 1810.  Zechariah is almost certain a son of David.  See below.

  1. 1790. No Tettertons or similar names on 1790 census images.
  2. 1790. Thomas Tetterton married Ann Higgins 5 Jan 1790; lived in Lenore County.
  3. 1800. No Teddertons or Tedders in census images.
  4. 1810. Matthew Tetterton 1 16-20, 45+/F 2 10-16, 45+.
  5. 1810. William Tedder. 1 26-45, f 26-45. Note: This is not George Tedder Jr’s son, William, who is in the 1810 and 1820 census in Bladen.  This has to be William Tedder’s son from Edgecombe.  Pick him up in in Glasgow and Greene counties before coming to Wayne.
  6. 1810. David Tettes. 1 0-10, 2 10-16, 1 26-45, f2 0-10, 2 10-16, 1 16-26, 1 26-45. Most likely another son of William of Edgecombe and brother of William above; name corruption, should be Tedder.
  7. 1820. William Tedder 1 45+, f 45+. Matthew Tetterton 1 26-45, 1 45+, f1 0-10, 1 16-26, 45 up.
  8. 1820. Zechariah Tedder 1 0-10, 1 16-26, f16-26. Almost certainly this is the Zechariah in 1830 Washington Co Georgia. Logic and age indicates this is one of David Tettes’s (Tedder) two 10-16 years olds in 1810.  But, who would be the 70-80 year old in his Georgia household in 1730?  This family is not in Wayne County in 1830.  William Tedder would not be 70 years old in 1730; also by my reading of census images of 1830 Wayne, William is in Wayne County.  Zechariah was a resident of Jefferson County GA in 1927 when he was in the GA land lottery.   He drew Troup County.
  9. 1820. Joseph Teterton. 300010 f10110. Most likely the Joseph from Beaufort and who I believe was a brother of Matthew’s father.


Wilson  Formed from Edgecombe

1761, 28 Feb: Warrant to Jacob Tudor, 700 acres at Foisnot (Should be Toisnot) Swamp.  Note:  This land was in that part of Edgecombe County that later became Wilson County.  Jacob also documented in Edgecombe as Tedder.  This is Samuel of Surry VA’s son, brother of George, Samuel and William.

Unknown date: James Taylor, Entry 700 A bs of Tosneot Sw nr mth of Jacob Tudors.  From Granville district of North Carolina Land Grants.

1860 census:  Tedder, Stephen 36, Elizabeth 27, Burden 7, Wilson 6, Nancy 5, Zina 5, Celia. 3.

Please note: Y-DNA testing has revealed that one or two Tudor/Tuder lines in North Carolina match with the elusive Morris/Ledbetter/Hall line that has been posted about elsewhere here on this site. Any comments on the subject are welcome below.


  1. Rick Tuter

    I have a direct paternal DNA link to Morris/Ledbetter/Hall lines. My gg grandfather was Henry V Tuter, Born in NC about 1825 and died in Smyth Co.? VA about 1860. His wife was Susan Love born NC.

    • Sara Whitford

      Oh, yes! I remember seeing your name in my grandfather’s matches. His name is Albert Dorsey MORRIS and I manage his kit. We think we know which LEDBETTER fathered Laban, but we’re not positive yet. There was a young man in the right place at the right time and with the opportunity, and his name turns up among Laban’s sons and grandson’s, so we’re thinking it’s him… however until we do some more DNA testing, the jury is still out. 🙂 Where in NC was Susan Love from?

      • Rick Tuter

        I don’t know, sorry.

        • Rick Tuter

          I re-entered this information below. I forgot I had been here before. Sorry

  2. Martha Tetterton Guill

    My great,great, grandfather was Benjamin Tetterton born 1819 in Tyrrell county. He died in Washington County in 1882. I would like to know who his father was. Wife was Jane McNair. I was born in Rocky Mt. N.C. 1939

    • Sara Whitford

      Thanks for writing, Martha. I apologize for the delayed response, but I’ve not been getting some of my comment notifications, so I’ve not seen many until today.

      I do not have any further information on the Tetterton family beyond what is posted on this site. The gentleman who provided me information on some of the Tedders/Tudors might be worth contacting.

      • Martha Tetterton Guill

        Thank you, I will continue to look for my roots.

    • janice winchester

      Martha, I too am looking for information on Benjamin Tetterton 1819- 1882….he has a son Ben jr. And on his death record his father Ben sr. Has his birth place of England…I grandmother was his great granddaughter…

      • Martha Guill

        At age 80 I continue to try to find the parents of Benjamin Tetterton. It is been Several years since we corresponded. Perhaps you have found more information by now, I have not.
        A gentleman by the name of Robert Tedder informed me that Benjamin‘s father was William Tetterton, perhaps Benjamin was from England, I shall attempt some research and that direction. Again I thank you for your time, and for all the information would be greatly appreciated. Martha Tetterton Guill

  3. Rick Tuter

    I am a great great grandson of Henry V Tuter and Susan Love. I have an extremely close DNA match to the Hall, Morris and Ledbetter families listed above. I am descended from Henry V’s son Ballard Preston Tuter and have a cousin with a DNA match who is descended from Ballard’s brother, Henry Pickard Tuter. My distance to the three named families above is closer than the 3rd cousin 1 removal above.

  4. Paul Humphrey

    In regard to George Teter under Cabarrus you have: “1800 census. George Teators. 1 10-16, 1 16-26, 1 45+, 2 females. Almost certainly the father of George Teters b 1795 who is documented in the Cocke County, Tennessee, 1850 census.” Do you have any other information on this line? I’m pretty sure this is a grandfather of mine. This George shows up again in the 1860 Census for Blount, TN. His son William is in the 1860 Census for Monroe, TN. William died in the Civil War, but left a son TJ who was my great great grandfather. I guess what I am asking, is there information that makes you sure this George to be the father of George who shows up in the 1850 Cocke, TN Census? Prior to this I had hit a brick wall at this point in my research.

  5. ross tedder

    Hello to any body who can possibly help me. My name is Ross Tedder. My family and I are from Pittsburgh however my grandfather was From Society Hill, South Carolina. His grandfather (my great-great grandfather) was a slave owner whom I know was from some part of the United Kingdom. His name was James Tedder, II I believe. My grandfather’s name was also James Tedder, but due to complications with his genealogy he didn’t receive the “IV.” If anyone offer any information to me it would be highly useful.

  6. Gayla Jackson

    I am a descendant of William Owen Tutor and Lucinda Senter from Wales and then settled in NC

    Gayla Jackson

    • Jack Ruple

      Gayla, I head the Tudor yDNA group at I would like to know the sourcing you have for the Wales connection …do you have each generation documented or the immigrant information showing positive connection to a particular birth record in Wales or ancestors in Wales who have tested the same on a yDNA test? Thanks

      • Mike Tutor

        For Jack Ruple: William Manning Moore provided the information regarding Owen Tutor’s [1772-1850] birthplace as Wales. Moore’s grandmother provided him with most of the early information that has been handed down to Tutor researchers. Moore’s grandmother lived with one of Owen Tutor’s [1772-1850] daughters from the age of five. According to William Owen Tutor III, Owen Tutor [1772-1850] crossed the Atlantic Ocean three times but drowned in a spring branch.

  7. Martha Tetterton Guill

    I continue to look for the Tetterton “roots” . Several of my Tetterton cousins have sent in DNA including myself. Has anything come from this.
    Thanks to anyone that can help. continue to look for the parents of Benjamin Tetterton born in N.C. In about 1819, wife was Jane McNair.
    Martha Tetterton Guill
    My parents were J. Wilton Tetterton and Esther Johnson, both from Rocky Mt. N.C.
    My Grandmother Tetterton was a Davenport also from Tyrrell county.

  8. M. R. Tutor

    There are a lot of entries regarding Owen Tutor (c.1774-c.1850), of Cumberland County, NC, being a son of Owen Tudor, of Anson County, NC, without any proof whatsoever. As a result, there are a lot of sites and blogs reporting this as a fact. My great uncle Robert E. Lee was the son of my great-great uncle, Henry Lee. That did not mean that my Robert E. Lee was the son of Henry “Harry” Lee, the revolutionary war hero. My Henry Lee was in Baltimore, Maryland, when Henry “Harry” Lee was in Baltimore. Many families used the same given names. My Richard Pace, Jr., had about six grandsons named Richard Pace and their brothers had similar given names with other unrelated Pace families. With the amount of disinformation being disseminated on the internet, we may never find out who Owen Tutor’s parents were. According to Family Tree DNA, my YDNA and that of a descendant of Henry Tudor, of Sussex County, VA, through his son Henry Tudor, Jr., showed a MRCA 12 generations back. There are only six generations between Owen Tutor and me. Mutation differences in my other families show “0” mutations for eight to ten generations to a MRCA.

    OWEN TUDOR and wife LUCY HARRIS had their children born in SURRY/ SUSSEX CO. VA and they are listed on this ALBEMARLE PARISH CHURCH REGISTER of BIRTHS, SPONSORS, DEATHS in book by Boddie, showing the GODPARENTS ( Sponsors ) listed for these children are our NATHAN ROGERS and wife ELIZABETH HARRIS ROGERS ( sister of LUCY HARRIS TUDOR wife of OWEN TUDOR ) and JESSE RODGERS is the brother to NATHAN ROGERS and his two other siblings living then in SUSSEX CO. VA .


    pg. 141 –

    FANNY, 3/19/66, Henry TUDOR, Jr. , Anne Wellborn, Sarah Slate
    HARRIS, 4/26/68, JESSE RODGERS, Edward Slate, Letty Waller
    LUCY, 10/20/71, Joshuah Smith, Hannah Hix, Sarah Pate

    The ROGERS/ RODGERS are Y-DNA tested and match both my WILLIAM L. ROGERS line of ANSON / MONTGOMERY CO. NC as well as the DNA MATCH to the SURRY/ SUSSEX CO. VA ROGERS out of JOHN ROGERS b. 1617 ( England ) who arrived on ship ” George ” in 1635. It is this JOHN ROGERS who is thought to have been the Burgess in JAMESTOWN VA in 1645, then gained his 200 ac. of land on Cypress Sw. SURRY CO. VA in 1666 for transfer of 4 persons to him. His wife is MARY but she cannot be verified to be the MARY ATKINS listed on many genealogies.

    Within my own line of ROGERS in ANSON/ MONTGOMERY CO. NC are the groups of FIELDS/ JERNIGANS / TARVERS also of ANSON CO. NC who later also migrated to CARROLL CO. TN, where we know my G. GRANDFATHER BASIL ROGERS was neighbor to GREEN H. FIELDS and wife CELIA JERNIGAN ( the 5th G. GRANDDAUGHTER to THOMAS the Immigrant JERNIGAN who d., abt. 1705 NANSEMOND CO. VA . CELIA JERNIGAN was dau. of WM. JERNIGAN and wife LUCY TARVER of ANSON CO. NC who had moved then to ROBERTSON CO. TN where GREEN H. FIELDS married CELIA.

    LUCY TARVER may be a niece of JOHN TARVER who md. SARAH ROGERS, the dau. of JOSEPH ROGERS and wife MARTHA FERGUSON of NORTHAMPTON CO. NC. JOSEPH ROGERS d. 1752 NORTHAMPTON CO. NC after having removed from SURRY CO. VA sometime after 1740. JOSEPH ROGERS was the son of WM. ROGERS/ ELIZABETH CARTWRIGHT (2nd wife of WM. ROGERS ) and WM. ROGERS b. 1657 Surry Co. VA ; d. 1727 SURRY CO. VA is the verified son of JOHN ROGERS b. 1617 England who arrived in 1635 to VA and lived on Cypress Sw., Surry Co. VA.

    It is possible that our ROGERS line in ANSON/ MONTGOMERY CO. NC ( Y-DNA and FFDNA tested ) is out of the same line of JOHN ROGERS b. 1617 England and his son WM. ROGERS b. 1657 SURRY CO. VA but through a different son, named BENJAMIN ROGERS b. 1687 Surry Co. VA who d. May 28, 1744 SURRY CO. VA. leaving 4 sons and 1 daughter. I am probably out of the 2nd oldest son JAMES ROGERS b. bet. 1700-1726 VA who removed then to ANSON CO. NC by 1774 where he is found along with his son JAMES ROGERS, on the 1774 ANSON CO. NC ROAD ORDINANCE. By 1779, we know our ROGERS also signed the same 1779 ANSON CO. NC Petition to form upper ANSON into MONTGOMERY CO. NC where the ROGERS land then lay. During summer of 1779 JAMES ROGERS entered his many acres of land into the MONTGOMERY CO. NC Deed books or lose it as they were Squatters, and finally had to claim the land if they had built improvements on the land or lose it to auction after the newer county of Montgomery was created from ANSON.

    Other families of SURRY / SUSSEX Co. VA traced into ANSON and MONTGOMERY CO. NC as well besides the ROWLANDS who are HAMS, FELTS, HATLEYS, TUDORS, LOFTINGS, DUNNS, JUDKINS etc. So we know many of these ancient planters of SURRY and SUSSEX CO. VA did migrate as did the TUDORS into ANSON CO. NC beginning in about 1770’s – 1790.

    We know my own line of ROGERS in Anson/ Montgomery Co. NC to CARROLL Co. TN have many other connections within many other SURNAME groups of SURRY/ SUSSEX CO. VA such as the ROWLANDS, GREENS, HATLEYS, and others, with some having been Y-DNA tested such as the ROWLANDS who do match the ROWLANDS who arrived in 1640 to COLONIAL VIRGINIA and are also in SURRY CO. and SUSSEX Co. VA after JAMESTOWN VA.

    Knowing that the swabber of the Y-DNA kit for our best 67/66 ROGERS Y-DNA MATCH is probably out of the NATHAN ROGERS/ ELIZABETH HARRIS line and since ELIZABETH HARRIS is sister to LUCY HARRIS who md. OWEN TUDOR and they too migrated into ANSON CO. NC and died there, I have to wonder what is really proved on HENRY TUDOR of SURRY CO. VA so far ?

    The will of HENRY TUDOR is listed below showing his son named OWEN TUDOR and I am having problems finding more on HENRY TUDER/ TUDOR prior to his 1757 Deed below so point me in the direction of trying to find more on him and his possible father, if known. – Tina Rogers Beller,

      This is great information. Thank you for adding it to the page. 🙂

    It is my understanding that William Tetterton/Teeter/Tutton married a Margaret B. Hall who had two orphaned sons from a previous marriage to William Hall. William Tuten then adopted her sons named William Hall and Daniel – they then became William Hall Tuten and Daniel H. Tuten. They went on to have yet a son together named William. Perquimans/Pasquotank counties records and listed in the information on this page.

    The blood lines of William Hall Tuten and Daniel H. Tuten would therefore reflect the Hall bloodline and not that of the original Tuten bloodline. Many Tutens forward would now reflect the same. (William Hall Tuten settled in SC)

  11. Mike Tutor

    For Jack Ruple: William Manning Moore provided the information regarding Owen Tutor’s [1772-1850] birthplace as Wales. Moore’s grandmother provided him with most of the early information that has been handed down to Tutor researchers. Moore’s grandmother lived with one of Owen Tutor’s [1772-1850] daughters from the age of five. According to William Owen Tutor III, Owen Tutor [1772-1850] crossed the Atlantic Ocean three times but drowned in a spring branch.

  12. Pam Tudor

    Does anyone have any information on Stephen Tedders/Tuders From Bladen NC? He died in Clay county Kentucky. I have read in one of Robert Tedders posts that he believed Stephen was the son of Jesse Tedders and in another post that he was the son of Morris Tedders. There is so much misinformation out there on Stephen. Many people on ancestry have him being married to a “Cherokee Princess” Morning Dawn. This is wrong information and has been proven to be a myth.
    Robert Tedders if you see this will you please contact me at pamtudor64 at gmail.

  13. Nan bATEMAN

    My line goes back to Charles Moore b.1740 and Rebecca Tudor b.1739 in Granville. I think those are their correct birth dates. If you have different, please let me know. I don’t think they were born in Granville though if these is their correct dates. I still think Charles Moore is either Cason Moore’s son (Cason of 1715) or his father, Captain Henry’s son due to what was said in Capt. Henry’s will. I think they were all in Lower Norfolk when the Revolution broke out and the British pretty well blew that place up. I know that Benjamin John and John Tudor came to Granville but I am not sure how Charles came. I think Rebecca was born prior to coming to Granville but I could be wrong.
    I can’t find any records from Lower Norfolk and he is not mentioned in Lynnhaven/Princess Anne’s Vestry. I know his mother, Elizabeth Ashwell (if that is his mom) supposedly went to Augusta VA. Anyway, I have DNA to Rebecca Tudor and Charles Moore. I just don’t know where to go from there. Very confusing with their military service interfering with their lives as well.

    Owen Tutor of Cumberland Co., NC, was not a son of Owen Tudor of Sussex Co., VA. The YDNA of Owen Tutor’s descendant did not match the YDNA of Henry Tudor’s descendant. This “internet” genealogy is exactly that. Real research must be conducted and documented and should not rely upon guesses.
