MY HUSBAND 
For His Many Willing Sacrifices and Encouragement

The memory of the CHAMBLEE, FISHER, GRUBBS , HUGHES, ROBINSON, SHIRLEY,

CHAMBLEE FAMILY OF N , C. & S. C. 



The name CHAMBLEE is spelled various ways, Chamble, Chamblee, 
Chambley, Shamble, Shamblee, Shambley and Shamley to mention just a 
few. 

Land patents of Va, show one Randall Chamble in Lancaster Co. Va., 
28 July 1662, also an Ann Chambley, ref. Cavaliers and Pioneers by Nugent 
p. 216, 398. 

My search of this family has been done primarily to establish the 
relationship between Robert Thompson and Mary Jane (Armstrong) Chamblee. 
Since my mother knew two of her gt. aunts md, cousins., however the 
relationship to the Armstrong family has not been established. Both 
families used the name Thompson. 

ROBERT CHAMBLEE, of Bertie Co. N. C. On 15 June 1759 John 
Barrett of Bertie Co. N. C. a cooper, sold to Robert Chamblee of same 
place 100 a. on deep branch. John Chamblee of Bertie Co. N. C. excused 
from paying taxes one year, probably because of age or health, ref. 
Bertie Co. N. C. deed bk. 1 p. 357.

granted for the estate of James Burress dec'd. Joshua, Esther and Joshua

GRUBBS FAMILY OF VA. & S, C. 19 



The name is of German origin, "The family of Grubbe, spelled in the 
old register Grube or Groube, migrated from Germany about the year 1430, 
after the Hussite persecutions, and subsequently settled in Eastwell in 
the Parish of Pottrne Co., Wilts where they have lived since." John 
Grubb arrived from England on the ship Kent in 1677 at Burlington, N, J., 
then to Grubbs Landing, New Castle Co., Del.

Sr. , gave him for love and affection 200 a. on Barkers Creek, wit, William 
Cant and Meredith H, Brock. There is a tradition that he md, Sally Barr,

Sally B. Robinson, b. 22 Sep. 1799 Anderson Co. S.C, d. 31 July 1868, 
dtr. of Richard and Mary Robinson. Probably John and Richard 
Robinson's mother was nee Barr. For most of this family carry the 
initial "B" said to be for "Barr". They are both bur. Duncan Cem, and 
probably lived where the Duncan Cem. is located and which was used by 
both Robinson families after John Barr Robinson became a member by 
marriage. On 29 Jan. 1861 John Barr Robinson and Sallie, his wife, 
were mentioned in the estate papers of her family so, although she 
also had a bro. John who md. a Sallie, they are clearly identified,

Sherley, Sherlye, Shirle, Shirlay, Shirley, Shirlye, Shorley, Shurley, 
Shurly, and Shyrlye, to mention a few. There are several Coat of 
Arms. One, SHIRLEY EARL OF FERRERS, SEWALLIS, is at the Old SHIRLEY 
Manor house, the third to be built on the land, near Stratford-on- 
Avon, in Warwickshire, England. The SHIRLEYS have lived on this 
land for over 900 years. Over the mantle is carved the SHIRLEY Coat 
of Arms and that of the name SEWALLIS, "These be the Pales of Black and Gold 

The which Sewallis bore of old 
and this the Coat which his true heirs 
the ancient house of SHIRLEY bears." 

The family line back to the beginning of names and their Coat of 
Arms may be found in Burke's Heraldry, Stemmata Shirliana by Evelyn 
Philip Shirley, Lib. of Congress. Brochure of Shirley Mansion.

Henry Walker was allowed a land grant for the transportation of Henry 
Shirley to Va. In the early Va. records many transactions were not

Their son William Sidney Porter, 11 Sep. 1862 N.C. was "O. Henry," 
the renowned short-story writer. Mr. C. Alphonso Smith who wrote 
the William Sydney Porter Bigography wrote that it was from the 
Shirleys of Wiston for whom Shirley Plantation was named and 
that Daniel Shirley of Princess Anne Co. traced his family to the 
Shirley family of Wiston, ref. C. Alphonso Smith, p, 24. 

SIR ROBERT SHIRLEY, chr. 20 Oct. 1650 East Sheen, Surry Co.

made the First Earl Ferrers in 1711. He was zealously attached

There is yet another of the SHIRLEY family who distinguished 
himself in America, a descendent of Sr. Anthony Shirley of Preston, 
Sussex England, William Shirley, educated at Cambridge, app . 
Gove, of Mass. 1741, ref. Shirleiana by E, P. Shirley, p. 236, 
307, 324, Chart 305. 

While these illustrious figures of the Shirley nobility were 
losing their wealth, prestige and titles in Europe, many of the 
name were seeking their fortunes in the New World. Some came to 
relatives, already established in Md. and Virginia. Because of 
the old English custom of primogeniture, the eldest male in line 
heired the ancestral estate, and the titles as well. As a 
consequence many of the family lines were not extended in England. 
In Virginia, early records were fragmentary, sent to England, lost, 
destroyed, or never recorded. There is ample proof that our 
families came from Va., tradition in several branches claim to be 
of English Royalty and that they settled first along the James 
River. Records indicate they were located, very early, on the

Eastern Shore of Va. especially in Northumberland Co. and gradually migrated 
Westward. After the Revolution many settled in S.C. It is these Virginia 
families who came into S.C, I have attempted to trace.

In early records of Virginia a person received 50 acres of 
land for the transportation of each person, consequently when 
people traveled from Virginia to England, headrights were given, 
as well as for emmigrants to Virginia. These grants for 
transportation of people often were issued and recorded long after

68 BENJAMIN SHIRLEY FAMILY OF VA. AND S. C. 



for Revolutionary service has been located. Uncle Gustavos Adolphus 
Shirley said his branch of the Shirley family were of English Royalty. 
Benjamin's pts. may have been Richard and Margaret Shirley who were 
dismissed from Broad Run Baptist Church 12 June 1774, Fauquier Co. Va. to 
Culpeper Co., if so, they remained there only shortly for, on 22 Jan. 
1785, Richard and Margaret Shirley were among the Charter members of Old 
Turkey Creek Baptist Church, Abbeville Co. S.C. 

On 25 July 1784 Benjamin Shirley obtained, by purchase, 200 a. below 
the ancient boundry line on Turkey Creek, a branch of Saluda River, adj. 
William Robinson, dec'd, and James Smith, recorded 3 Jan. 1785. On 22 
Apr. 1785 he obtained 200 a. on Turkey Creek, a branch of Saluda River, 
N.W. adj. James Shirley and vacant land and, 5 Mar. 1792, he obtained 
841 a. in Abbeville Co. S.C. James Shirley, 300 a. Rocky River 15 
July 1784. Land plots show Benj . Shirley 200 a. Rocky River, 3 Jan. 
1784. Perhaps related. 

He md. Elizabeth Hughes, b. ca. 1770 Va., d. Apr. 1826, dtr. of 
James and Rachel Hughes and sis. of Edward Hughes. In 1790 the family 
consisted of a son and a dtr. In 1810 there were three boys and as 
many girls. I have been to the old place said to be the original home of 
Benjamin Shirley some six miles from the Old Greenvale (Greenville) 
Presbyterian Church on the High way to Hodges. I wonder if he did not, 
in fact, live near where his son, Nathaniel, lived and where Mastin 
later lived. Nathaniel and several of his family are buried there. They 
were members of the old Greenvale Presbyterian Church where the citation 
of his estate was published, Abbeville Co. S.C. He died, intestate, Aug.

THOMAS SHIRLEY, (of #1) b. ca. 1740. One Thomas Shirley served 
in Colonial Wars from S.C. under Col. Richard Richardson from Carven 
Co. S.C, 1759-1760, in the expedition against the Cherokee Indians, 
On 4 June 1772 Thomas Shirley a tract of 500 a. on Roberts Cr. of 
Pacolet River, Craven Co. bounded by vacant land. On same day a tract 
of land 500 a. adj. his own land on Roberts Cr. of Pacolet River. On 
26 Sep. 1772, 500 a. in Craven Co. on Wateree Cr. of the Catawba River, 
adj. William Gwin, Richard Tidwell, and 26 Sep. 1772, 650 a. on Island 
Cr. of Pacolet River where it empties into the Broad River. This 
2150 a. could not have been a head right and no note as to his being 
a surveyor, consequently it is thought these grants were for military 
service to the Crown. He may have sold before the war and the conveyances 
in Charleston. A Memorial tax return is recorded in Charleston, 8 Dec. 
1772, for Thomas Shirley. These lands were in what was then Spartanburg 
and York Co. In 1790 in Spartanburg was a Thomas Shirley, his wife, 
one son o/16, 3 sons u/16 and 4 dtrs. Some of the name Shirley were

Sep. 1873, ae. 46, of typhoid fever near So. Union, Oconee Co. S.C, dtr. 
of Aaron and Clarissa Terrell of Pickens Co. S.C. Dad knew cousin Kit, 
admired his fine singing voice and recalled he was a prominent Educator. 
It is said he took a book to the field and read instead of working to the 
despair of his family. "Rev. C. H. Speer was the first teacher chosen 
for White Rock Academy, he taught the school for five years and raised it 
to a high position, attracting students from various parts of the State. 
The closing exercises became famous and were attended by people from miles 
around. He was an example of what one can accomplish who will. He 
never attended school until he was grown, and so awkward and ill at ease 
was he among the small children that he felt almost in despair, but 
his teacher encouraged him and induced him to continue. With his kindly 
help, the ambitious youth soon passed two or three classes and by the end 
of the first term was with boys almost his own age. Those early difficulties 
made him an unusually sympathetic and a very successful teacher. He 
took up the work early, and often found himself only a few days work 
ahead of his pupils. He became a Methodist Minister and was noted for 
his fine singing voice. After teaching at White Rock, he went to 
Clearmont Academy but the people of the community requested his return, 
he went back and for four years taught with all of his former success. 
He died Sep. 1873 of typhoid fever, while teaching at White Rock and was 
buried in the nearby Church Yard. Pts. of 9 ch. , ref. Vandiver p. 101,

Ga. , Laura Anna Watson, b. 24 Oct. 1872 Bowersville, Hart Co. Ga. , d. 
13 Oct. 1959, only child of Robert Ira and Elizabeth Carolyn (Armstrong) 
Watson. Dad was given a plantation by his father and mother was 
given one by her mother, however they joined the L. D. S. Church. 
Opposition was so intense that they chose to come West; they arrived 
in Pima Arizona in Dec. 1900 with Mother's half bro. , Uncle G. A. 
Shirley family. Soon they moved to the Hildreath place where grand- 
mother Watson visited the family. Dad filed on a homestead which was 
then available in Arizona, where they lived until 1915 when we moved 
to Lay ton Ariz., then in 1920 to Inglewood Calif. Aunt Rachel also 
came West. She lived in Layton Ariz, but the boys had girls in Ga. 
so they returned in 1905. Mother went back to Georgia in 1902 where 
William was born. Jonnie stayed with Grandpa Speer 's family until 
his death in 1904 at which time Dad and I went back. She returned 
with us. Dad was a successful farmer, raised alfalfa seed and 
stock. He played the organ, had a lovely voice and a fine sense 
of humor, loved to tell stories with negro and Spanish dialect. 
He traveled with 01 McKinney, a cousin, when young tuning organs, 
always sat on the back seat at church but was always asked to 
play the organ. They both rest together, Inglewood Park Cem.,

GEORGE TRIBBLE, (of #2) ca. 1700 King and Queen Co. Va. , eldest son 
of Peter Tribble. While Peter Tribble named his eldest son George, we 
assume the George of this sketch is that son, when we know there were 
two of the name who served in the Revolution. The George Tribble of this

JOHN TRIBBLE, (of #2) ca. 1704 Essex or King and Queen Co. Va. He 
was of age when his father executed his will 6 Apr. 1738, one of the 
Executors. His eldest bro. George was named in his father's will how- 
ever he was not named an Ex. indicating that he had settled elsewhere. 
He died in Essex Co. Va. intestate, 1749. On 20 June 1749 bond for adm. 
of the estate of John Tribble, dec'd, John Dean and wife Esther, with 
Thomas Dean security. On 15 Aug. 1749 John Dean, guardian of minor 
orphans, Peter and John Hill Tribble. Paid John Pyles for schooling of 
children, alloted to John Hill Tribble and to Peter Tribble, recorded 
19 Sep. 1749. Since the children were called orphans and the estate was 
divided into three pts. it is obvious the mother was deceased and that 
Esther, wife of John Dean, was a dtr. ref. Essex Co. Va. will bk. 6 p.

GEORGE TRIBBLE, (of //3) b. 1757 Caroline Co. Va. We assume he is 
of this family since he stated he was born in Caroline Co. , however no 
documentary proof. He was living in Spots. Co. Va. 3 Sep. 1832 when he 
applied for a pension for service in Revolution. He enlisted and served 
seven tours in the Va. Militia, 1st under Capt. Vivion Minor of Caroline 
Co. He was married twice, md. Nancy, a widow Bell, probably a large fam- 
ily, ref. Spots Co. by Wm. A. Crozier p. 529, Pension application. The

JOHN HILL TRIBBLE, (of #5) ca. 1730 Essex Co. Va. He was a minor 
when his father died, 1749. His guardian John Dean employed John Pyles 
as instructor for himself and bro. Peter. In the settlement John inher- 
ited a negro girl Phyllis, recorded 19 Sep. 1749. On 16 Sep. 1793 John 
Tribble, with John Mann and William Hawerton his securities, gave bond 
as adm. of the estateof Peter Tribble, deceased. This Peter Tribble 
could have been a bro. or his son. On 21 Sep. 1812 John Tribble, with 
Philip Mann and Richard Covington his securities, gave bond as adm, of

PETER TRIBBLE, (of #5) ca. 1731 Essex Co. Va. He was a minor in 
1749 and apparently his mother predeceased his father, at which time 
he was living in Essex Co. Va. and received, among other items, a negro 
boy Simon. He may be the Peter Tribble who settled in Halifax Co. Va.

MILTON (MITT) PYLES TRIBBLE, (of #22) b. 27 Aug. 1840 Laurens Co. 
S. C. He joined the Confederate Army Apr. 1861, served until close of 
hostilities. It is not known when he settled in Anderson, however some 
of his children bom in Newberry Co. In 1880 he was elected treasurer 
of the Co. and in 1884 Clerk of the Court, in 1894 appointed Postmaster 
of Anderson, served until 1898. In 1902 he became a member of the State

"The first paternal ancestor to settle in this country was EZEKIEL 
TRIBBLE, of Scotch-Irish blood, who came from Ireland to Va. and, ca. 
1790, settled in S. C. The mother of the subject of this sketch was 
descended from Dr. Abner Pyles , of French Huguenot extraction". Dr. 
Abner Pyles was his gr. father, however his Tribble gr. father was 
Jeremiah, which leads one to wonder if he knew his Tribble gr. pts. and 
if Mr. James Calvin Hemphill verified his record from any source other 
than tradition. I feel confident that cousin Emma Martin and others 
obtained their information from the above article which may be in error. 
The only verification of the name EZEKIEL is that Lemuel Williamson so 
named his first son. He also named ch., Mary and Oliver Brown. 
Jeremiah named a son Elijah as did Richardson. He md. 28 Oct. 1868
