    1200 acres near the head of Sewards Creek adjoining the land of Mr. Cooper and Captn. Barnard

    In 1711 [her cousin] William BRACEWELL and his wife Mary were in Chowan County, Nort h Carolina. He was the first of his family to move to North Carolina, bu t was soon joined by four of [his uncle] Richard's sons- Richard Jr., Robert, Valentine, and Jacob, with whom he was closely associated during his short life there.
    Toward the latter part of the seventeenth century, the vast unsettled lands of North Carolina had been opened for homesteaders. After the Tuscaroras Rebellion was crushed in 1712, there was a rush to secure choice plantation sites along the rivers and creeks of the new territory. Many younger sons of prominent and wealthy families who by law of primogeniture inherited no share in their father's estates, took advantage of the opportunity to make their fortunes. New arrivals from England and indentured servants who had completed their period of servitude joined the throng of hungry land speculators.
    Many of William Bracewell's relatives began taking up land and establishing homes and plantations in the central and western parts of Edgecombe County. One of the first to arrive was Richard BRACEWELL, who settled in the extreme southern parts of what is now Nash County on White Oak Swamp. When Richard divided his property among his sons in 1747, he had over 1,000 acres and thirty slaves. This was a large number compared with the number of slaves owned by most plantation owners in this area of the countr y (Halifax Deed Book 3, pp. 177-178; Land Grant Book 16, pg. 252).
