THE DESCENDANTS OF JAMES SAWYER (or BURTON) ARBUTHNOT (1773-1815).

 

James Sawyer (or Burton) Arbuthnot. Born Aberdeenshire, Scotland (or France or England) 1773 (or 1770?), possibly a son of a George Arbuthnot. Died 8 January 1815 from wounds received in the battle of New Orleans 8 January 1815, per the Mormons who give their source as his grand-daughter, Martha Arbuthnot. He has clearly been confused with at least one quite different James; nevertheless, we list some of the statements which have been made about these several different potential pasts for it may be that one of them has some truth in it, though such truth may and may not relate to this James. His name has been linked to that of a possible brother, George Arbuthnot, with whom he emigrated to New York. There was a George Arbuthnot who signed a petition to the President of the US concerning intruders of Chickasaw lands, (at?) Sims Settlement, Elk River, Mississippi Territory on 5 September 1810. It is suggested that James is the James Arbuthnot shown in the Mormons' records as having been born in Dundee, Angus 28 April 1763, brother of Archibald Arbuthnot (born Dundee 21 October 1760) who were both children of Francis Arbuthnot (born c.1734) by his wife, Margaret, née Miller (born c.1738) [Source described as: F Scot 6 pt 668] - this suggestion is thoroughly unproven (and unprovable from old parochial registers); this family is shown on Table 68. It is suggested that this Francis and his son James (born 1763) emigrated together to the USA in 1772. There is a record of the emigration on board the 'Pennsylvania Farmer' in 1772 from Ireland to (Charlestown) South Carolina of one or possibly two Francis Arbuthnots; those allowed to travel on the ship had to have enough money to live on when they landed or had to have someone vouch for their keep: one Francis appears to have been listed as a servant to a doctor on board the ship, his wife being listed as a maid to another passsenger in order to get passage fees; all foreign Protestants were given 450 acres of land, but those who had enough money were asked to pay for it; if there were two emigrating Francises, presumably it was the other who was able to pay [transcript of "Compilation of Original List of Protestant Immigrants to South Carolina 1763- 73 (Port Charles Town)" 3751 pp 125, 126]. This man has been confused with the James Arbuthnot of Table 5 and we hope we have properly separated the information. We don't think that the James, the subject of this family, is as has been suggested that or those James Arbuthnot(s) who is/are shown in the Mississippi archives as follows: (1) owned land in Claiborne County, Mississippi in 1803; (2) the land is called Claim 774; (3) (made?) 19 June 1803, a pact to Eli Crockett regarding improvements where he was then living on Lingon Branch of South Fork of Bauyou Pierre; (4) "made 1 May 1798"; (5) 20 December 1803 before Edmund Hall, JP of Jefferson County, Mississippi Territory "in case of my death before I return from the Atlantic States I do make over all my rights to 'within' to Jesse Lum . . ."; (6) (mentioned in document?) 16 September (year?) "320 acres to include improvements"; (7) Certificate D-172 16 December 1806; (8) "Witness says claimant desires to take only half of the desired tract on pre-emption if it does not prove to be a donation; (9) Claim for 640 acres 45 miles from Natchez by virtue of these (6, 7 & 8?) records; (10) James was a signatory of a petition asking for Federal control of land on 25 August 1803 [Volume 5, Mississippi Territory papers]. It has also been speculated that James Arbuthnot was son of John Arbuthnot [4] and Jane Burton (Table 58). We believe the following to be true: there is a Land Grant in Mississippi dated 1 May 1798; James went from Mississippi to St Helena Parish, Louisiana in 1803, buying about 3,000 arpents of land in the St Helena & St Tammany Parishes (near Greensburg, Louisiana) in 1803 and in the following years and marrying in Natchez, Mississippi, 7 October 1795, Catherine White (born 1775; dvu 1809). Both James and Catherine are buried at Zemurray Lodge, Loranger which was once part of the Arbuthnot holdings in this area.
A. William Burton Arbuthnot. Born Natchez District, Mississippi 7 January 1798. Died 1843. Married in Wilkinson County, Mississippi, 13 September 1829, Sarah Woodside (born Co Antrim 13 February 1813), daughter of Thomas and Jane Woodside. Both were buried at Liberty, Mississippi. In the Arbuthnot Cemetery in Kinnabrew Lane lie William Arbuthnot (died 14 March 1844) and his consort Sarah Arbuthnot (died 5 August 1841) - which is inconsistent with Benjamin's date of  birth. Webster's shows "wife" to be one of the meanings of "consort". Mary Duck Pallon says: Location of tombstones: From Liberty SW on Hwy 48, 4.2 miles to Enterprise Rd, turn right 1.8 miles to Kinnabrew Ln, from there abt 1 1/2 miles.
