    "The Board deferred action on this Petition (desiring to come to Georgia) until the families should actually come into the colony. By February 1751 only Gray, John Young, David Hailey, John Ayers, George Tarr, Joshua Griffee and William Payne had arrived, and on February 27 they presented their petitions for
    allotments of land; however, only four allotments were made. Edmund Gray was allotted 500 acres in the fork of Savannah River and Little River on Feb 27 (2), and John Young was allotted 200 acres adjoining Gray on December 18 (3). On the latter date, George Tarr and William Payne received allotments for land in the Indian Country, fully 20 miles north of Gray and Young, who were at the extreme northeast frontierline."

    "James Rabun Haley went to Franklin County, Georgia about 1804 m Iney - 1790 Elizabeth Parr - A listing in Orange County, Virginia dated 1790-1800 carried the name Jack (believe a misprint for James) m Elizabeth Parr. James Heley, b. 1802, named a son David, as did his son, James, name a son David." "Haley Jones" by Lucy Cline

    James and Elizabeth made a deed 9/26/1807 in Franklin Co. GA.
    "Some say there was another daughter to James R. She married a (Lewis) Proctor and had Priscilla born in 1800 and Sterling L. born in 1805. Some say they are his nephew and neice. They lived with James R. in 1850 census. Their mother went back to Orange Co. VA. Some say James R. adopted them and changed their name to Haley." Joanne B. Haley

    "oldest member of the James Rabun Haley family of Franklin Co remembered a sister of his father by the name of PRISSY PROCTOR, a widow with a young son. She went back home (Orange Co, VA) and
    took the child." Lucy Cline

    "Orderd that James R. Haley be appointed Guardian of the Person & property or Starling Proctor an Ediot." FRANKLIN CO. GA COURT PAPERS

    "Also remember the spelling can be Haley, Haly, Hailey, Haily, Hayley, Hayly, Healey, Healy, and maybe even Halley. I have seen Haile in Va. but think that a totally other family . But sometimes Hayle slips in there. A name can be spelled two different ways on the same document." Jim Self<SRSELF@aol.com >

    "I stated that the original Haley/Haileys in Ireland were originally descended from the Halle family in France and the deHalle family in Spain, members of which accompanied William of Orange on his invasion of England in 1066 AD, settling in Ireland, and that both families had retained the original
    spelling of their names until Irish kings began to change them. In my note, I'd also quoted O'Lochlainn, one of the foremost authorities on Irish names in which he stated the earliest recorded usage of the Haley/Hailey family name or any variation (O'hailche, O'Haille, O'Halley, O'Haley, O'Hailey, Hally) was in 1679." "Betty Haley" <haley.haley@worldnet.att.net>
    There are a group of the Scottish family of Hay that spell their name Haylee and Hayle. Some of them came from an estate called Ley. So they are Hay's of Ley or Hayleys. Just thought I'd throw another monkeywench into the works.

    "In looking at this information, I recognize The London haberdasher and stock holder in the Virginia Co. His records show english(notice small 'e')origins. Secondly, Walter Heyley. The surname De Heya or Haya, now shortened to Hey(the older spelling) and Hay is Norman. This Heyley is a Scottish variant of the Norman name of Hay. Also the name Walter, normally is associated with Norman names." Joseph.

    Subject: [{HALEY}] Hayle(Hayley) spelling
    I don't understand why you insist on changing all the family spellings to Haley. That's what's buggered up my family for three generations, this idea that these people all came from anglo/irish origins.
    In Scotland there is a ridge of hills called 'Hayle'.in the Largs area. The peole of this small area are MacHayle, and they belong to Clan MacDougal, the old Lords of Lorn and descended of Somerled. Opps! Somerled was Irish.
    But he was back in the 1100's. So they were Scots for nearly 800 years.
    There is also the Hay family that has a group of Haylees/Haylee. These are of Norman origins, later in Scotland and are hereditary High Constanbles of Scotlannd. So not everybody you are talking about is a Haley. With respect Jos. W. Lindsy Hayle

    "When I referred to the Halle's in France and de Halle's in Spainaccompanying William of Orange in 1066, when he invaded England, I standmore than properly corrected, as in fact, they accompanied William theConqueror/William the Bastard (1027-1087) in his conquest of England. (Imajored in European history, so all my old profs must be really spinning over that goof!)"

    5 Oct 1800 rec 28 Oct 1807 James Haley & Elizabeth of Franklin Co sell to John Towns in Acker p 230 (Deed Book RR #16 & 17). There must be an earlier deed showing the sale to them - get it. I looked in Franklin Co abstracts of deed books at Franklin Co. Historical Society office prior to 1800 and didn't find an earlier deed. Could it have originally been in Elbert Co that was where John Towns lived later?

Looked for court details in Franklin Co but only found these orders in the Minute Books.Hoping to find Sterling's parents & then their home state. Look in Atlanta.
    6 March 1826 James Haley given authority to sell the real estate of Sterling Proctor, a minor. Later he became Sterling Haley
    Check the Guardian returns in Atlanta, they are not in Franklin (both returns are rg 159-2-27 these # mean not in Franklin) May 1839 vol 8 p 261-262 Bk G, Jan 1846 vol 9 p 174/Bk H) to see if any other info
    Judith Haley married Lewis Proctor 23 Feb 1807 in Highland, VA (could this be James R's sister and the mother of Sterling & Priscilla?) What county is Highland in?

    Haley Land Grants - this means original owner of the land not military service. Ordinary citizens received bounties for not leaving the state during the Rev. The Act of 25 Feb 1784 was to open up Franklin & Washington Co. After 22 Feb 1785 land was granted free. The amount of land a man was entitled to depended upon his own and his family's head-rights (200 acres for himself, 50 acres upon the head of each member of his family). The restriction of 1000 acre maxim remained unchanged. No surveys for bounty grants made after 22 Feb 1786 but a grant could be made for land surveyed prior to that date. "Index to Headrights & Bounty Grants of GA" 975.8 R2i
    Wm 1801 Franklin 100 acres, Grant Book DDDDD p 471
    Mark 1807 Franklin 91 acres, Grant Book G5 p 201
    Jas 1824 Franklin 550 acres, Grant Book P5 p181
    Joel 1847 Madison 371 acres. Grant Book W5 p67
    Ludy 1823 Franklin 450 acres, Grant Book O5 p575

    25 Sept 1823 James Haley appraised the estate of Wm Edwards, dec. (Minutes of Franklin Co Court 1823-29" p 125a RG 159-2-39 vol 10
    29 Oct. 1839 James R Haley, Joel & Frances Haley witnessed the will of William Ford, Sr (p 311 "Franklin Co wills 1827-1850"). I studied these records and could find no kin relationship between the Fords and Haleys.

    James R Haley & Elizabeth lived:
    Crockett's Creek1800
    Little's Creek 1807
    Nail's Creek 1815
    Middle fork of Broad River 1821

    19 Dec 1853 (rec 2 Feb 1864 or 7) Heirs of Rebecca Moore, dec., daughter of James R Haley, dec., sell their 1/6 of the land on which James R Haley resided to Ludy Haley for $121 (Cherokee Co Deeds #243) witness: Abram Moore
    4 July 1853 Joel Haley sold his 1/6 part of his father's tract to Ludy Haley for $116 (Cherokee Co Deeds #242)
    4 July 1853 James this Cherokee deed book for additional transactions - none. Were there Franklin Co deeds showing these transactions? Suzanne Haley says check AB #233 (which county?) Ludy died ca 1853 - look for an et al deed or a will from Ludy.
    I think remaining parts were given to Ludy, Ludicy & Nancy. I couldn't find the deeds becasue they didn't sell them at that time. Found several of Uriah Miller's deeds of gift in 1873-1878 in Franklin Co to his children Nancy, Ludicy & John A - his wife, Sally, must have died as no mention of her.
