He took to successive land grants for "increase in family". Sometime before 1775 William Cloud deeded this land on Fishing Creek in Chester County to his daughter, Mrs. ALICE BOYLESTON. This land is still owned by the Boyleston family. The other grant of William Cloud on Fishing Creek in Chester Co. was deeded to their son, JAMES CLOUD. WILLIAM CLOUD then removed to Virginia until after the Revolution when he came back to S. C. and records show that he was buying lands in this county on the first of January 1787. The family record is that WILLIAM CLOUD married in Virginia to ALICE HARDEN before coming to S.C. originally. There are deeds in Fairfield and in Charleston showing ALICE CLOUD, the wife of WILLIAM CLOUD, as signing dower rights. WILLIAM CLOUD made his Will March 14, 1810, probated Aug 30, 1811, as follows: To wife and son, JOSEPH, certain negroes, cattle and furniture, remainder to be sold and divided equally between my daughters, SIN FORD, ALICE BOYLESTON and grandson VINCENT BELL; to grandson, WILLIAM CLOUD, son of DANIEL, all my lands lying on south side of Thorntree Creek at death of my wife; to daughter, ANN GUPHILL 5 schillings; JOSEPH CLOUD, my son and VINCENT BELL, my
