CARLISLE FAMILY       FROM THE BEGINNING
Small Heading
Generation No. 1

1. JAMES1 CARLISLE I was born Bet. 1730 - 1740 in Tarnaneal, County Monaghan, Ireland, and died Bef. December 06, 1770 in Abbeville, South Carolina. He married ANN IRVING Unknown in Tarnaneal, County Monaghan, Ireland. She was born Unknown in Tarnaneal, County Monaghan, Ireland, and died Bef. 1770 in Abbeville, South Carolina.

JAMES CARLISLE I

James Carlile, a farmer in Tarnaneal, County Monaghan in the 1750's, sailed for America in the fall of 1769 with his young family. Pious Presbyterians, James and his wife, Ann Irvine Carlile, and their young children left Belfast aboard the crowded ship Hopewell and arrived in Savannah, GA in December after six weeks at sea.

After waiting several days in the hull of the ship for clearance to leave the harbor, the passengers sailed up the Savannah River to a plantation for immigrants near Queensborough, GA. But when the plantation failed to live up to its advertising, several families, including the Carliles, hired the ship's captain to take them to Charleston. There James and Ann were treated well and granted land at Long Cane in the old Ninety-Six District which later became Abbeville.

The Charleston, S.C. Court of Ordinary recorded the proceedings as follows:

Citation granted to Samuel Paxton and Jane Carlile daughter of James Carlile of Long Canes to Administer the Estate and Effects of James Carlile late of Long Canes, Prince William Parish, Craven County as nearest of kin. To be read in the Parish Church aforesaid and returned certified (by the minister), granted 6th December 1770.

In 1775, a royal grant of 400 acres in the name of James Carlile was signed by William Bull, Esq., Lieutenant Governor, Province of South Carolina. The grant, made five years after James' death, was terms a memorial and apparently intended as a rememberance by his family. 

James could have also been a teacher or minister as well as a farmer.

Generation No. 2

2. JAMES2 CARLISLE (JAMES1) was born May 23, 1763 in Tarnaneal, County Monaghan, Ireland, and died April 09, 1842 in Abbeville, South Carolina. He married MARGARET BOLES October 15, 1783 in Abbeville, South Carolina, daughter of JOHN BOLES and ANN UNKNOWN. She was born June 27, 1762 in South Carolina, and died August 13, 1857 in Abbeville, South Carolina.

JAMES CARLISLE

James Carlile, son of the immigrant, was only six years old when his family came to America. He was born May 23, 1763 in Tarnaneal, County Monaghan, Ireland. At age 17, he was drafted into the South Carolina militia as a private, and three weeks later fought in what has been called the greatest tactical victory ever won on American soil, the Battle of Cowpens in upper South Carolina. The fighting began Jan 17, 1781 near Spartanburg. James served under his brother, Captain Francis Carlile. Both served under the command of Col. Andrew Pickens.

Around 1790 James built a house of hewn logs just northwest of Lowndesville, SC on land granted to him for his service during the Revolutionary War. The property remains in the family to this day. James and Margaret raised their family, farmed, and lived there for the rest of their lives. The house has been added onto over the years, but the original log house still stands, and the graves of James and Margaret in the field approximately 200 yards behind it have only recently been marked. About 60 people are buried there in the Carlile Family Cemetery including James and Margaret's oldest son, John, and his wife, Frances Tucker. A descendant of John and Frances currently owns the property where the old home and cemetery are located.

Margaret Boles-Carlisle died at her residence, in the upper part of Abbeville District, South Carolina, about the 13th of August last, Mrs. Margaret Carlisle. The deceased was about ninety-five years of age, and had been a zealous and confident member of the Associated Reformed Church at Little Generostee, under the successive pastorates of Revs. Robert Irwin, Ebenezer E. Pressley, D.D. and James C. Chambers. Her zeal for the Glory of God, in attending the public ordinances of this house, was not perceived to experience any diminuities until utterly incapacitated by the infirmities of old age. How forceably does her case illustrate the scripture truth: "Thou shalt come to thy grave in a full age, like a shock of corn cometh in the season" Job: vs 26:[Shackelford & related families.FBK.FTW]

On Mar 18, 1857, shortly before her death at age 95, Margaret applied for land from the federal government based on James' military service. In the application, Margaret included information taken from the family bible. Published dates about the family come from the application which was discovered during the 1960s at the National Archives in Washington.
