Hans Michael Heyer SC

I found this information in, Petitions for Land from SC Council Journals, by Holcomb.
Tuesdat A.M. 4 February 1755.
The Petition of Hans Michael Heyer humbling setting forth That the petitioner arrived here from Rotterdam in the ship Ann and consigned to Mess'rs Austin and Laurens by whom he and his wife was bound out to Samuel Stevens and was free. That he had a wife and was desirous of settling in this province and never had ant warrant, prays to lay out one hundred acres of land free of charge and that he might have His Majestys Bounty of provison. Dated Feb. 4th 1755. Signed Hans Mich'l Heyer. The prayer was granted.

He is not listed on the list of people in the Hiers book that arrived Oct. 1751. He was aboard ship but could not pay passage.
Jacob Hiers has a Michael Heyer but he was born in 1742. I don't think he would have been married at 13.
I thought if you had lost a Hans Michael Heyer this would be helpful.
