Heyward Hutson in Summerville SC -- former state representative -- has Limehouse family connections and strong interest in geneology. He published in the Summerville Journal Scene on 12/17/97 a long article on Limehouse family in Summerville; however, he starts with Commodore Thomas and Lady Elizabeth. Thomas, according to the article served in the militia and is listed in the 1897 Yearbook of the City of Charleston as being present atthe siege and capture of Charleston in 1780. In 1790, Thomas was listed in the Charleston City Directory as ashopkeeper at 34 Broad St, midway between City Hall and the Exchange Building where a bank is now located.
Thomas and Elizabeth had son Robert (1761-1851) and daughters Elizabeth and Sarah. Thomas apparently died in 1791, because Elizabeth executed a renunciation of rights in favor of son Robert that year. Robert took over his father's business, because in 1794 he is listed as a shopkeeper at 34 and a half Broad St. In 1800 Robert, merchant and bachelor at 39, married Lady Margaret "Peggy" Price (1783-1849) who was only 17 years old. They had eight children, including five daughters and 3 sons between 1801 and 1820. Their third child was Robert Ilderton Limehouse

The article contains considerably more detail about the life of Robert Limehouse and his son Robert Ilderton Limehouse.
