This is another Charleston deed that points back to Eastern NC families.
The John COLLINS family was of Beaufort County, NC.
1-263=Q-127 11 & 12 Sep 1723 John Watkins (Watkings), planter, Mary (her
mark) his wife, of Berkeley Co., to Jonathan Collings, mariner, & Sarah, his
wife, of Charleston, for £200 SC money, 143-1/2a in Berkeley Co., bounding W
on the Broad Path; E on Ashley River; NW on Robert Daniell; S on the Rat
Trap belonging to Charles Hart. Whereas Jonathan & Sarah Collings own 175a
in Berkeley Co.; John Watkins owns 143-1/2a in Berkeley; they agree to
exchange their holdings; therefore, Johnathan & Sarah Collings convey to
Watkins 175a commonly called Hobcaw, Berkeley Co., bounding NW on William
Watson; NE on Carter Collis; other sides on marsh of Cooper River; & Watkins
conveys 143-1/2a to Collings, as above. Wit: William Watson, Richard Splatt,
Robert Hume. Before Joseph Wragg, J.P. Nathaniel Johnson, Register.
