  The Early Lawley Family (http://www.jps.net/mgdlucas/lawley/) In the late 1700 �s there were five recorded Lawley families in Randolph County, North Carolin a. These Lawley families were headed by John, Joseph, a married Elisha, a sin gle Elisha, and Christopher. These men were probably related as brothers or c ousins. Various spellings of the surname are found in recorded documents. S ince literacy was poor, census takers and clerks recorded the name as it soun ded to them. The surname
  was often recorded as Lawley, Lolly, Lolley, Lawler, as well as other variants. Most Lawley descendants today use the Lawley spe lling, but not all. (Click here to view a discussion of this topic.) John Lawley was born in the 1750�s. He served in the American Revolution and there are records of him being in Craven and Randolph Counties. In
  1787 he was gra nted 120 acres of land and another 50 acres in 1796. John migrated to the Pen dleton District of South Carolina prior to 1800 and
  lived there over 10 years . Before 1820, John had settled in Jefferson County, Alabama. Joseph Lawley was born in the 1760�s. He was granted 200 acres of land in 1796. In 1809 he was granted another 100 acres of land at Bear Creek in Randolph County. In 1 816 he sold his land and settled in the southeastern corner of Bibb County, A labama. This Lawley line has produced a large
  number of Baptist preachers. Elisha Lawley is most obscure of these early Lawleys. The oldest record
  of a n Elisha Lawley is a signed petition in 1773 concerning a move of the Guilfor d County courthouse. An Elisha Lawley appears on the 1779 Randolph County tax list and Elisha Lawley was granted 100 acres in 1806. Elisha Lawley, which may not be any of the above, migrated to St. Clair County, Alabama by 1819, a nd later settled in Shelby County, Alabama. Christopher Lawley was born in th e 1760�s. In 1794 he bought 100 acres of land. Christopher married Catherine; Catherine had previously been married to Mr. Walker; James had been born to this union. Christopher would later remember James in his will in the same ma nner as his own children. By 1790 Christopher and Catherine had five children , three boys and two girls. He sold his land in 1798 and moved to Edgefield C ounty,
  South Carolina. Between 1790 and 1800, two children were born, one boy
  and one girl. Between 1800 and 1810, another son was born to Christopher a nd Catherine. Also, four dependents, which were not their children, were adde d to the Lawley household. In the Fall of 1815, the Lawleys migrated along wi th others from Edgefield County, South Carolina to Shelby County, Alabama and became its earliest inhabitants. (Click here to view a transcribed copy of a newspaper article describing this migration.) Many other residents left Edge field County due to the declining economy and
  soil depletion. As a result of the defeat of the Creek Indians during the War of 1812, Alabama had just open ed up to white settlers. In 1820, two sons and one girl, probably not their c hild, were in the household. Christopher owned one slave in 1820 and two slav es by 1823. On the 6th of January 1824, Christopher deeded land to his grandc hildren, Bradley and James Lucas. In 1832, Christopher died, willing his prop erty to his surviving wife and children. The town of Lawley in Bibb County w as named for Marion Lawley, a grandson of Christopher. (Click here to view a history of Lawley, Alabama.)
