    Robert Boyd Jr. was executor of his father's will. The estate papers include Eleanor Boyd's estate delivered to Moses Boyd, Dec'd, in trust by Robert Boyd to Hannah Boyd, Admrx. of the estate of Moses Boyd, dec'd.



    "The amount of Elenor Boyds estate delivered to Moses Boyd Decd in trust by Robert Boyd, Exec. of Robert Boyd, dec'd on the 23rd of January 1812 was two hundred and sixty six dollars." There were receipts from Joseph Boyd, Moses Boyd and Aaron Boyd.

    The settlement of the estate of Robert Boyd, deceased, with Robert Boyd Jr. and John Boyd as executors, was completed and signed by Wm. Smith, Thos. Snoddy, and F. Johnston. There were receipts from Joseph Boyd for 40:5:0, from Moses Boyd 20:0:0, from Aron Boyd 35:10:0, plus receipts for taxes and executive expenses.

    Three of the sons of Robert bought items at the estate sale. Joseph Boyd bought grindstone, sycle, hoe, axe, and bull; Robert Boyd, curry comb, plows, hoe, clevis, --iron, and irons for a doubletree, and 15 bushels of corn; Moses Boyd, sundries, 40 bushels of corn



    When the Boyds moved to North Carolina, the area where they settled was part of the Granville District. This land belonged to John Carteret,

    Earl Granville. When the Earl died in 1763 the district land offices were closed. The only way for a newcomer to buy land was from another

    person who had received land before this time. Many of the people in this frontier area were squatting on the land. With the declaration of

    American independence, these lands were taken over by the North Carolina government and soon after, the land was available for purchase. In 1772

    in Burke Co., North Carolina, Robert appeared on a tax list of Walter Lindsey, living near the present day town of Taylorsville. Also in this

    area were Robert Holmes, Solomon Barnes, Samuel Woods, Francis Wilson, and Samuel Murphy. It was not until 1778 that the Boyds are recorded as

    buying land. On 23 Dec 1778 in Burke Co., North Carolina, Robert Boyd received several grants. Grant #1569 was for 200 acres on the Muddy Fork

    of the Lower Little River. Another grant, # 1570, was for 200 acres on Lower Little River including the Big Falls and his own improvements for

    complement was transferred to John Cummins. Grant # 1571, 100 acres to Robert Boyd on Mountain Branch between John Smith's and John Russell's

    entry. Grant # 1591, 200 acres on Little River on the south west side of Whitstone hill including meadow ground for complement. On 27 Nov 1792

    in Burke Co., North Carolina, Grant # 1545 to Robert Boyd Sr., 2 acres (sic--probably 200 acres) on both sides of the Muddy Fork on the waters

    of Little River, joining Watts and John Lutches [Leach, lbl]. Registered 16 May 1806.



    In 1790, the area where Robert Boyd lived, north of Taylorsville, was listed in the census of Wilkes County. He was in the Morgan District, Fifteenth Company: 2m +16, 2m -16, 1f. For about two years, the Boyds and their neighbors can be found in the records of Wilkes County. After that, they are in the Iredell County records.
