Re: Throckmorton, Hack, Terill, Byrnes 1750s

Please let us know if you have resolved some of the questions posed in your query.

Robert Throckmorton married Betty Hack on or about 8 Apr 1788. He died in some time between 26 Aug 1800 and 16 Aug 1801, and examination of court orders in that time period would probably fix the date with more certainty. His will was presented for probate (it is reported) 20 Oct 1801, but the will book is not given even though one source gives the page as 311.

This Robert was Robert Throckmorton Senior, and was born before 11 Apr 1926, on which date he was mentioned in his uncle's will. He used senior and his son Robert used Junior at least from 1782 through 1796, when the younger Robert moved to North Carolina.

The marriage to Betty was a later marriage. I have yet to see any reference to a document before 1788 which gives the first (much less the last) name of his earlier wife. Most researchers have assumed that she was Susannah Sharpe.

Henry Throckmorton is the only child named in Robert's will, the text of which has been posted on a WorldConnect page. He was to receive the entire estate subject to a life estate given to Henry's widow Elizabeth. The will has a contingency provision if Henry were to die before reaching age 21, so he was then a minor.

Sharp Throckmorton was the son of Robert born to a previous wife. His name is used in support of the view that Susannah Sharpe was Robert's first wife. He was born in 1772 or 1773.

Thomas is said to have been a son of Robert, but I have not yet seen evidence of a father-son relationship. Thomas was born probably in 1800 and would more likely have been a grandson of Robert. He is more likely to have been a son of Julius Throckmorton, a son of Robert, who died in 1802.

Henry is shown as marrying Mary Terrill on or about 2 Dec 1807 in various indices of Halifax marriages. The date given is usually the date of the bond.

As to the migration, I refer you to Halifax Deed Book 42, page 2 (which I have not seen), which has been described as a deed from the ESTATE of Henry Throckmorton to Mary Ann Hall, dated 27 Oct 1834. He seems to have died in 1831-32. It would seem that the heirs, or at least Robert and Richard, took the money and moved west. You show Catherine in MO. Henry the younger?

Hope this helps. Would like to learn what Halifax documents you might have.
