Notes for Lemuel Lanier:|
Lemuel Lanier came to Virginia with his brother, Robert, and brother, Clement about 1687, as there were records of Robert as early as February,1688, in Charles City County. In 1702, Clement Lanier was in the tithes of Surry County, and it is possible that Lemuel may have been there under some unrecognizable name.
His first record in a Petition from Sandy Point, Chowan District, North Carolina, July 13, 1719, asking for land. On April 5, 1720, Lemuel Lanier and Mathias Tobias Swanner were granted a patent in Bertie District; in 1733 he was granted a Crop mark there.
On April 20, 1745, Lemuel Lanier was granted 350 acres of land in Edgecombe County, North Carolina. Very shortly after, Granville County was formed from Edgecombe and Lemuel Lanier was in the new county. He was Justice of the Peace for many years, from 1747-48-49-50-and 1751. Left no will or other record.
No record of a wife or family has been found; Lemuel and Mathais T. Swanner were close friends, and in the latherís will he names a son Lemuel, and a wife Jane. Whether Lemuel was named for friendship or his mother Jane might have been a daughter of Lemuel Lanier has not yet been determined.
Lemuel Lanier was living july 27, 1762, when he witnessed a deed for Benjamin Lanier, son of Bird Thomas and Mary Lanier of Surry Coounty, Virginia, enroute to Duplin County, North Carolina.
