Bobbitt family of North Carolina
GRANVILLE COUNTY formed from Edgecombe County in 1746.
The 1800 census of Granville County did not list any Bobbitt families. The families of Warren County and Franklin County lived near the Granville County border. It is likely that there were no Bobbitt families living in Granville County in 1800 or that they were counted as living in Franklin County.
ORANGE COUNTY - formed from Bladen, Johnston, and Granville in 1752.
1 male 10 - 16 (1784-1790) 1 female under 10 (1790-1800)
1 male 26 - 45 (1755-1774) 1 female 10 - 16 (1784-1790)
1 female 26 - 45 (1755-1774)
Sion Bobbitt was a son of William and Martha (Turner) Bobbitt. He was born in 1765. He married Sarah Mangum a daughter of Arthur Mangum of Orange County. Sion lived his life in Orange County.
In the year of 1800 there should have been other Bobbitt families in Orange County. For some reason they were not counted.
WARREN COUNTY - formed in 1779 from Bute County.
Warren County is a separate study of the Bobbitt family in the 1800 census records.
Descendants of William Bobbitt were living in Virginia, Kentucky, and North Carolina in 1800. One family was living in Georgia and perhaps three families in South Carolina. There was no families in Tennessee before 1808. Most of the migration to other states was after the war of 1812.
