Research on this family was done by me in 1976-1985
CAROLUS ANDERSON was born abt 1694 Probably in Isle of Wight Co, Va. where, I believe, he married MARY ( BOON?) (NO PROOF--PROB. Dtr of Joseph Boon & #1 wife, Elizabeth of Isle of Wight Co, Va., & Bertie Co.., NC, about 1727. Joseph Boon died 1728 Bertie Co, NC-WILL.
The first record of Carolus Anderson in North Carolina, is in William Byrd's Journal April 4, 1728, (Wednesday), while surveying the boundary line between Virginia & North Carolina, when Chaplain Mr. Fountain christened a child of Charles (Carolus) Anderson. Carolus Anderson's family lived on what became the official boundary between Virginia & North Carolina; and in May, 1728, William Boon deeded him 423 Ac on Meherrin River, " in consideration of valuable causes, in hand paid"..
He "proved his rights" in February, 1743 in Edgecombe Co., North
Carolina.(8 wh, 3 bl)
He lived on the line separating the states of Virginia and North Carolina, and some of his closest neighbors were the Boon & Fort families. In 1742, the family of Robert Warren from Surry Co. Virginia, located nearby, whose son Hinchey Warren, married Rachael, the daughter of Carolus Anderson, about 1749. Robert Warren "proved his rights" in August, 1743 in Northampton Co., with 10 whites, and 2 blacks in his HH.
CAROLUS ANDERSON was the son of JAMES & ELIZABETH ANDERSON. His mother made her will Nov. 5, 1732, naming sons, James Anderson, Carolus Anderson & daughter Elizabeth Pitman, (& others) with her granddaughter Sarah Anderson as Administratrix. Sarah is obviously the daughter of her son James, as it appears Sarah, the daughter of her son Carolus wasn't born at the time (or would have been an infant, therefore could not have served as Extrx. of her grandmother's estate. Sarah Anderson presented the will in Bertie Co Court as Extrx, for Probate. (Bertie Co Court Minutes)
Carolus Anderson & his wife MARY are buried in the Anderson family burying ground, Northampton Co, NC according to his grandson, James Judkins, Sr, (1760 NC-1823 Ohio) in an account of his life, written in 1820.
The Judkins family were of the Society of Friends (Quaker) religion.

Excerpts From William Byrd's Journal April 4, 1728 P 33-34
The Isle of Wight county begins about three miles to the east of Meherrin river, being divided from that of Nansemond only by a line of marked trees.
4th. The river was here hardly fordable, though the season had been very dry. The banks too were so steep that our horses were forced to climb like mules to get up them. Nevertheless we had the luck to recover the opposite shore without damage.
We halted for half an hour at Charles Anderson's, who lives on the western bank of the river, in order to christen one of his children. In the mean time, the surveyors extended the line two miles and thirty-nine chains, in which small distance Meherrin river was so serpentine, that they crossed it three times. Then we went on to Mr. Kinchin's, a man of figure and authority in North Carolina, who lives about a mile to the southward of the place where the surveyors left off. By the benefit of a little pains, and good management, this worthy magistrate lives in much affluence. Amongst other instances of his industry, he had planted a good orchard, which is not common in that indolent climate; nor is it at all strange, that such improvident people, who take no thought for the morrow, should save themselves the trouble to make improvements that will not pay them for several years to come. Though, if they could trust futurity for any thing, they certainly would for cider, which they are so fond of, that they generally drink it before it has done working, lest the fermentation might unluckily turn it sour.
It is an observation, which rarely fails of being true, both in Virginia and Carolina, that those who take care to plant good orchards are, in their general characters, industrious people. This held good in our landlord, who had many houses built on his plantation, and every one kept in decent repair. His wife, too, was tidy, his furniture clean, his pewter bright, and nothing seemed to be wanting to make his home comfortable.
Mr. Kinchin made us the compliment of his house, but because we were willing to be as little troublesome as possible, we ordered the tent to be pitched in his orchard, where the blossoms of the apple trees contributed not a little to the sweetness of our lodging.

*NOTE-Helen Leary, in her North Carolina Research: Genealogy and Local History, mentions (p 324-5)
"...between 1665 and the first survey in 1728 of the dividing line between Virginia and Carolina, numerous Virginia patents were issued for land thought to be in Virginia but later found to be in North Carolina."
She adds that "special attention should be given to tracts identified as 'lying and being in the Upper Parish of Nansemond (Virginia).' That designation is usually a good indication that the land is now in North Carolina." ( My Note-this applies to all border Counties, prior to 1728)
