Our SCOTT line may be related to Nathaniel SCOTT who died in Queen Anne's County, MD by 1742.

From MARYLAND CALENDAR OF WILLS: Volume 8, online at

Scott, Nathaniel,Queen Anne's Co.,16th Feb., 1738;
15th July, 1742.
To wife Ann, use of dwelling plantation during widowhood.
To son John, and hrs., 200 A. “Partnership.”
To cousin William Young, son of William, 50 A. “Partnership” providing he pay a proper proportion of charges shd. there be a lawsuit.
To son Solomon, and hrs., bro-in-law John Young and hrs. “Scott's Enclosure” on Garmans Ridge.
To dau. Sophia and hrs., 100 A. “Tom's Fancy Enlarged.”
To grandson William Godwin and hrs., 100 A. “Tom's Fancy Enlarged.” Shd. he die without issue to pass to his younger brother and hrs., and in event of his death to his sister –– and hrs.
To dau. Ann Earle and hrs., 43 A., “Tom's Fancy Enlarged.”
To sons John, Nathaniel and Solomon, plantation at death of their mother. Testator does not wish son William to have any share in this as he has already been provided for.
Exs.: Wife and sons John and Solomon.
Test: T. H. Wright, Alex. Abercromie, Joshua Lawrence.
22. 491.

Our Scotts may be descended from son Nathaniel mentioned in the will. We *think* son Nathaniel, born about 1725, migrated to Anson County, NC where he was granted land in 1773-1785. According Anson land records a William Scott left that county in the late 1780s for Georgia. William may have been the other son mentioned in the above will.

A William Scott received land grants in the late 1780s in Burke County, GA. We *think* William was the son of our ggg grandfather Britton Scott of nearby Emanuel County, GA

See my website:

Our Scotts are a direct DNA match with a man who is descended from Nathaniel Scott b 1786 in Montgomery County, NC. Montgomery Co. was cut from Anson Co in 1788. This means Nathaniel 1786 was likely the son of Nathaniel 1720.

Would like to hear from anyone researching any of these Scotts. I encourage male Scotts to have their DNA tested at Family Tree DNA. As more males are tested our chances of discovering our Scott lines increases.
