The Daniells (originally D'Anvers or Danyers) are of English descent. their genealogy is directly traceable to the Knights of the Norman conquest. The Honorable Robert Daniell departed England in 1669,(via Barbados and Bermuda) bound for Port Royal Island, South Carolina. His voyage ended at the mouth of the Kiaway River in late 1669. Here was established the settlement of Old Charles Town where he became the Colonial Governor of South and North Carolina
Prior to leaving England, he was issued a Landgrave (8/12/1698) which entitled him to 48,000 acres of land, making him one of the largest landowners in the Carolinas, After settling in the Charles Town area, Daniell involved himself in shipping and political affairs until the success of the settlement aroused the jealousy of the Spaniards in Florida. In 1702, Daniell (who led naval forces) and Governor Moore (who led land forces) attacked Florida. Daniell took the Spanish Settlements of St. John and St Marys in route to St. Augustine.
Throughout his career in the Carolinas, he was a staunch Royalist, serving in the Eighth Assembly, Eleventh Assembly, and the Fourteenth Assembly. he was a judge, Chief Justice, Tax commissioner, a Captain, Major,and Colonel in the Militia. In his Capacity as Governor of South and North Carolina, He held the ranks of Lieutenant General and Vice Admiral.
He died on his plantation, Daniell's Island, south Carolina, between 5/1 and 5/18/1717. He was survived by his wife ,Martha , and five children. His remains were later removed to St. Phillips Churchyard, Charles Town, South Carolina. (This information taken from THE HISTORY OF METTER AND CANDLER COUNTY GEORGIA),[1]

Other Sources furnished by Skippy Davis list birthday as 20 Apr. 1646 and born in England or Scotland [5]
Daniell family History Book 2 by Clara Daniell Williams or Lithia springs GA list the birth place of Robert as Lianddewi Brefi Cardigan County, Wales . I belive this is the most reliable information. [15]
History of Metter and Candler County list birthday as 1642 and place of birth as Devonshire England. [1]
