Yet the said Narramore although so indebted and often thereto requested XC, hath not paid your petitioner said sum of money, but the same to pay hath refused, and still doth refuse, to the damage of your petitioner one hundred dollars and therefore, your petitioner prays that process may issue requiring the said Eli W. Narramore to be and appear personally or by his attorney at the next Superior Court to be held in and for the County of Hall then & there to answer your petitioner in an action of Debt OC.

I made a trip to Virginia and North Carolina a while ago, for research on another branch of my family, and happened to stumble across the Narramore name. So I didn't do an extensive amount of research, but here is a summary of what I found:
1) Edward Narramore is on the roster of the Granville Co. NC Militia in 1754.
2) In July 1754 Orange Co NC (Orange from Bladen and Granville in 1752): William Narrowmore was appointed constable in the room of (in place of) James Williams.
3) In Mar 1755 Orange Co NC: John Long appointed constable in the room of "John" Narrowmore. (I suspect the "John" was a recording error and that this was really "William").
4) On 28 Sep 1762 Cumberland Co (from Bladen in 1754): William Narremour buys land from John Pate on Little River (recorded 16 Aug 1763).
5) On 22 Apr 1763 Cumberland Co NC: William Narimor receives land grant of 100 acres in the fork of the Lower Little River (recorded 22 Feb 1764).
6) On 13 Feb 1764 Cumberland Co: William Narremor sells land to Edward Narremor on Lower Little River. It is described as the land on which Edward "now lives." (This likely indicates that Edward is William's son, or at least a close relation. I've got to go back and check if the deal was at market value).
7) On 16 May 1764 Cumberland Co: Edward Narremoure sells to Nicholas Smith (this is the recorded date). This is definitely the grant land, as Nicholas Smith re-sold this in 1771 (DB4/p410) and that deed refers to it as the land "first granted to William Narramore 22 Apr 1763."
8) On 20 Aug 1765 Cumberland Co: William Narremore sells to George Folds (this is the recorded date). This is likely the land purchased from Pate.
9) In 1763 and 1764 Cumberland Co: There are six references to William and Edward in the court minutes. For the four concerning William, they were all various references to his being appointed a constable (his area: from Cranes Creek to McClendons Creek). For Edward, he was on two petty juries, the first on 22 Apr 1764 just after he became a land owner, which strengthens my belief that William was selling land to his son.
No other references to Narramore in Cumberland County records after 22 Aug 1764 for Edward or 20 Aug 1765 for William.
Edward was granted land in SC in 1761 (I know this from the Internet and lack proof). Edward's son John says he was born 22 Jan 1762 in SC. So it is possible that this may be about the time that Edward first moved to SC. However, Edward was doing jury duty in 1764, so perhaps he had not fully moved yet. And one last tidbit I have recently found on the Internet and have not followed up--Edward Narramore is listed among the Regulators of Orange County, NC that were pardoned in South Carolina on 31 Oct 1771 for acts committed on 06 Aug 1768. I don't quite know yet how to interpret this, but perhaps he hadn't fully settled in SC during the 1760's.
Edward must have been born by 1735 if he was of age to be in the Militia by 1754. Thus, his father (say William) had to have been born by about 1715. This timeline may put us back to sea captain Richard Norramore who was granted a town lot in Charleston in 1695. However, I wonder if that is a red herring. Most English residents of north central North Carolina in the 1750's migrated down from Virginia. Most Scotch-Irish residents of north western NC came down the Cumberland Trail from Pennsylvania. The English name Narramore and the location in Granville County would tend to favor Virginia. There is little to favor moving up from SC. So anyway, I'm starting to look in VA to see what I can find.
That's virtually all I have on the Narramores. I've a little bit on the Cooks and the Reagans-Frances Reagan married a Narramore-supposedly one of the Eli's. That information is from Elbert Co., GA and is rather sketchy. I've never found any reference to a Narramore other than in James Reagans will where he references his daughter as Frannie Naramore. No one has ever given me a better understanding of how to jump from there to one of the Eli's.
Anyway, let me know if this sheds any light on anything. I'll do my best to let you know if I uncover anything that may be of interest to you.
Best Regards-Louis Ogden
