I saw your posting. If you will look in the book " The Register of Overwharton Parish 1723 - 1758" you will find a list of the "Tobacco Growers of 1724." It lists all the persons in the household they could work the tobacco plants. If they were under 16 their age had to be given. This is what it says:
Philemon Waters, William Rice, Philemon Waters age 13 (which made him born in 1711 ) and Thomas Waters age 10
( which made him born in 1714. Philemon Waters head of the house hold had a wife Mary.
Philemon Waters II did marry Sarah Bordroyne. All their children came to South Carolina from the Northern Neck of Virginia except John Waters who stay in Virginia. Phil II and Sarah did not come to SC. Phil II shows as a witness in Prince William County, Virginia in 1778 and he died in 1779.
Col. Philemon Waters born 1734 married Mary Berry. It was their cildren who were baptized in Charleston, SC. About 1772 he did move to 96th Ddistrict, which later became Newberry County where he died and was buried.
The name I have come across that Bordroyne made be a corruption from is: BEAUREIGN & BEAURAIN. There are listings on World Connect, but they are in the 1600's and then jump to the 1800's.
In fact from these Philemon Waters men comes one of our Apollo Atronauts who walked on the moon--Charles Duke, Jr. who is still living.I will another answer as I'm out of space. Jean
