About 1756 or 1757, James moved his family from Isle of Wight County VA to Granville County in NC
Granville County was created from Edgecombe in 1754 ( Map), then it became Bute in 1764 ( Map), and finally Warren was created 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 in 1779 into Franklin and Warren Counties.
Son Moses was a Revolutionary War soldier. According to colonial Bute County records, his will was dated Dec 9, 1776 and administered on Feb 12, 1778. The will left "all estate, negro & all my portion in hands of [stepfather] Mr. Randolph Hazilwood to go to my brother Wm. Maddrey, when probated."
