I have looked in censuses for Kent County, but they do not show the names of children this early. I need a lookup for land or probate records in Kent county. Bartholomew is said in our family to have been an only child. There is a Bartholomew Manlove born in 1776 whose parents are listed as Ann/Nancy Bolling and William Manlove. Ann/Nancy Bolling is from Virginia, however. She and her sister married brothers. Elizabeth Bolling married Christopher Manlove and Ann/Nancy married Christopher's brother, William.
I can find no conclusive documentation of Bartholomew's parents or birth, but he seems to have large sums of money to buy slaves at the age of 24, and I have found documents of sales of land by him to people in Maryland, prior to his move to Kentucky. Also, I find the relatives of Dr. Christopher Henry Manlove of Virginia (who left and settled his family in Robertson County, Tennessee), moving to Texas and settling on Bartholomew's land grants. So I feel like that these people, also from Virginia Manloves, must be his relatives.
Since Ann/Nancy and William seem to have dropped off the face of the earth, I am wondering if Bartholomew could have been orphaned and living in another home with relatives at an early age.
Any lookup help for Bartholomew would be appreciated.
