Notes for William GLOVER
iv. WILLIAM GLOVER, b. 1678, Longfield Plantation,
Parish of Varina, Henrico Co. Va.; d. August 1754, Northampton County, NC; m. MARY NORWOOD, Abt. 1705, Surry, Virginia.

William Glover was probably born in Va. though there is no proof of his parentage. No immigration record has been identified for him. The first record finds him in Southwark Parish, Surrey Co., VA in 1698. This merely means he was a free (not indentured) white male, 16 years or older.

He does not seem to have owned land at that time and was either working for another planter or renting land. His name appears as a tithable from 1700 to 1703.

By Sept., 1722, William Glover had acquired 640 acres "lying in the Chowan Precinct on the N. side of Morattock River...on the side of Beaver Pond...", and later acquired 450 acres in Granville or Edgecombe Co.s,NC. Although it appears that William and Mary Norwood Glover seemed to raise their family in Granville Co., NC, their descendants seemed to relocate to other parts of the state, and later descendants migrated to 96 Dist., SC which, by the mid-1800s was heavily populated with Glover families.

William Glover left a will dated July 30, 1754, recorded in County N'hampton, Aug. 1754 in which he names seven children. From the date of his marriage I presume all of these children were born in Surrey Co., VA.
