Notes for WILLIAM GLOVER:

Will of William Glover Will V. XI Northampton, NC.
Will of Mary Norwood Glover Will WB I 86 Northampton, NC

*Much of the information about William and Mary Norwood Glover and family was taken from a book by Sara E. Mason, "Glovers of Marengo County Alabama".

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.

Mary Norwood Glover was the daughter of William and Lydis (Jordan?) Norwood. William Norwood arrived in VA about 1649, probably by way of Bermuda as no emigraation record has been found. The Norwoods had been "Kings Men" during the Civil War in England and were well connected in Virginia.

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 Aug. Ct. N'hampton 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.
Mary Glover made her home with her son Benjamin who bought the Beaverpond plantation in 1758. She made her will dated Dec. 30, 1763, rec. Feb. Ct.in Northampton Co. (Northampton Wills I, 86).
