John and Rachel moved from St. Mary's Co. MD, after 1711, to possibly James City Co. VA.
Sons James and William both married, Sarah and Elizabeth, respectively.
It appears John left his son John property in Surry Co. VA in 1744, Col. John Simmons of Surry Co. being the agent.
Son John Egerton Jr. was appointed High Sheriff of the area that eventually became Warren Co. NC by King William about 1739, according to James Albert Egerton in his History of the Egerton Family. James Albert is the son of Gilbert Gray Egerton, the second son of James Egerton
Edgecombe was formed in 1741 from Bertie County ( Map), then became part of Granville County in 1754 ( Map), Bute was formed in 1764 ( Map), and finally Warren in 1779 ( Map). Bute was the Prime Minister of King George III and the residents did not like that so they split up Bute County into Franklin and Warren Counties. See map of the region in 1746 from the Granville County 1746 Society's website.
