Ref: Brief Sketch of Some Glisson Families in North Carolina-
By Phillip L. Glisson-
Previous Glisson researchers have guessed that the early Glissons in North Carolina were descendants of Obediah Glisson and that he was son of Francis & Elizabeth Glisson and that Francis was son of Henry Glisson, and that Henry was son of William Glisson of Rampasham, England and that John & Joseph was his sons. I believe there is a lot of error in this theory. I now believe that Obediah, John, Joseph and now maybe William Glisson above were brothers or cousins and their parentage cannot yet be proven.
In the Virginia records Francis Glisson did have a headright in 1654 arriving in America in Maryland then to Virginia. But no other records of him have been found. Also Elizabeth Glesson did arrive in 1655 as an indentured servant. I doubt that Francis & Elizabeth were husband and wife since she came a year later and was an indentured servant and their headrights were in different counties in Virginia.
Also there was a James Glisson listed in 1637-38 High Court of the Admiralty in Virginia. No other info on James yet either. See my References of Colonial Glissons pre 1730 back at my homepage.
So parentage of above brothers could be Francis, or James or a son of one of them. Also it is not proven that above Francis was a son of Henry Glisson and grandson of William Glisson of Rampasham England. See my References of Glissons in England. Henry’s brother John did have a son Francis about the right age to be above Francis. Henry also had a brother James. Maybe above James. So for now I am going with the theory that the early Glissons in North Carolina were probably closely related and will treat Obediah, John, Joseph and William separately until their parentage can be proven.
Obediah or Lidiah Glisson b.1665-1674 d.1714-1724. Wife was probably Mary. Mary married widower William Burt after death of Obediah. Mary left will as Mary Burt naming my 3 children James, Mary, & Ego(Eliyot) Glisson in 1724. Obediah witnessed land sale in 1714 and Lidiah witnessed land sale in 1714 in Craven Precinct. Both made their mark and they were similar, thus I believe Obediah & Lidiah was the same person. Some Glisson researchers think Obediah was son or grandson of Francis & Elizabeth Glisson in Virginia. This is possible but not proven. Possible counties in Virginia to search for his father is Northumberland & Westmoreland which changed to Lancaster then others. Most families in records connected to Obediah, Joseph and John seem to have been from Isle of Wight, and Nansemond counties in Virginia who migrated to Northeastern North Carolina. Almost all of this group were English Baptist. Originally it was thought that Obediah was father to below John & Joseph but I now think they were brothers or even 1st cousins. Will of Mary Glisson Burt states my 3 children. If she had other children she would not have said that. Also she was young enough to remarry to William Burt but too old to have children by him. Thus I would put her date of birth between 1665-1674. Thus I believe Obediah then was probably about this same age and he was not as old as some thought when he died. Possible children of Obediah & Mary Glisson is James, Mary & Ego. I have only found records on James and his descendants seem to all have stayed in Bertie Co. and then about 1800 no more records on them.
John Glisson b.1670-1680 d.1734 wife Jane. John was probably brother of Obediah & Joseph. John & James witnessed land sale in Bertie Co. in 1728. John, Dennis, & James signed petition in Bertie Precinct in 1733. John left will in 1734 in Bertie Co. listing wife Jane. Jane sold land 1734 in Bertie Co. Jane bought & sold land in 1737 in Bertie Co. Possible children of John & Jane were, Dennis, James, Joseph, Isaac, Abraham and Elsie Glisson who married John Swinson the Bricklayer and maybe Ann Glisson who may have been 2nd wife of Epenetus Griffin. Dennis & James signed petition in 1739 in Bertie Co. Dennis sold land to James in Tyrrell Co. in 1744. Dennis, James, Joseph, Isaac in other land deals in Tyrrell Co. Beautfort Co. Tax List 1755 list Abraham, Dennis, Isaac, James, Joseph, Isaac son of Dennis, & Jacob son of Dennis. Pitts Co. Tax List 1762-64 list Abraham, James, & Joseph. James left will 1762 in Pitt Co. Dennis went to Duplin Co. in 1764. No info on what happen to the rest. His descendants started in Bertie Co. and lived in area that changed to Tyrell the parts of that to Beaufort, then Pitt then Martin.
Joseph Glisson b.1680-1690 d.aft 1734 wife unknown. Joseph was probably brother of Obediah & John above. Joseph witnessed land sale 1716 in Craven Precinct. Joseph witness 2 land sales in 1721 in Perquimans Co. He sold land in 1734 in Perquimans Co. Possible children of Joseph was Henry and probably more but no records of any others. Descendants of Henry were mostly in Bertie, Northampton and Hertford counties in North Carolina records. He lived in lived in Bertie area that changed to Northampton and Hertford counties.
William Glisson b.bef 1716 adult in 1716, only record on him is for him supplying shot and flint for ships in 1716. See 1st page of References in North Carolina.
NEXT Generations of Glissons
James Glisson b.bef 1700 d.aft 1750 wife unknown. James listed in will of Mary Burt. James listed in 1721 land sale in Albermarle Co. James listed in 1727 Albermarle Co. He was listed Court records 1724-27. He sold land of William Burt in 1727 in Bertie Co. He witnessed land sale 1750 in Bertie Co. Possible children of James was James, Daniel, Elizabeth, Sarah, David, John .
Dennis Glisson b.bef 1712 d.abt 1785 wife Mary. Probably son of John & Jane Glisson. Dennis signed petition 1733 Bertie Precinct. He was in land deals in Tyrrell Co. 1739-54. Listed on 1755 tax list in Beaufort Co. nameing sons Isaac & Jacob. Bought land in 1764 in Duplin Co. and lived there till his death abt 1782-1787? He was in many land deals in Duplin Co. 1764-1787. Deeded land as gifts to sons Jacob 1767 and John 1774 nameing them as sons. To sum up Dennis lived in Bertie Precinct 1733, lived in Tyrrell Co. 1739-54, Beaufort Co. 1755-64 and Duplin Co. 1764 till death. Dennis's son Jacob left will in 1806 Duplin Co. listing his brothers and sisters. Namely Isaac, John, Michael, Abraham, Frederick Glisson, Rachel Gufford, Prudence Chambers, Charity Summerlin, & Mary Summerlin. Bertie, Tyrrell, Beaufort & Pitt Counties all bordered each other.
Henry Glisson b.bef 1728 d.aft 1773 wife Charity O'Quin dau of Patrick O'Quin and sister of Patrick & Bryant O'Quin and Rosannah Deans and probably more. Henry was listed in the Colonial Soldiers of the South 1732-1774 as private aft 1748 living in Northampton Co. In 1749 witnessed land sale in Northampton Co. Will of Patrick O'Quin in 1752 listed sister Charity Glisson both of Northampton Co. Henry was listed with Thomas Glisson as members of the Sandy Run Baptist church in 1773. Northampton, Hertford, and Bertie Co. all bordered each other. Possible children or grandchildren of Henry Glisson was Thomas, Daniel, Henry, Patrick, Edward, 2 more males and probably a few daughters. Henry & Patrick went to Logan Co. Kentucky, by 1795.
Isaac Glisson b.bef 1734 m. Jun 1762 in Tyrrell Co. to Martha Whitfield. This may have been a second wife. Isaac lived in the part of Tyrell Co. that changed Martin Co. NC & most of the Glisson's in Martin Co. were probably his descendants. Isaac listed as son of Dennis in 1755 Beaufort Co. Tax List. Possible children of Isaac Glisson was James, Isaac, Ann, John, 2 more males and probably daughters. James went to Henry Co. TN by 1825. John died bef 1790 and was probably father of Daniel Glisson wife Susan in 1810-40 Martin Co. Census records.
John W. Glisson b.abt 1740 d.1810-20 wife Jean. Listed as son of Dennis in Duplin Co. Land sale. Possible children of John Glisson was John Jr., Daniel, Abraham, Lewis, Millard, Elizabeth, and William and several more. Daniel had a large family half of which went to TN and half stayed in Duplin Co. NC area. Lewis and his descendants went to Dale Co. AL. William’s family stayed in NC. John Jr. is the John Glisson listed in Duplin Co. NC census for 1790-1800 etc. not John Sr.
Abraham & Frederick Glisson sons of Dennis Glisson went to Burke Co. GA by 1786.
The first couple of generations of Glisson's in NC were listed in records from different Precincts & Counties but did live fairly close to each other and may of later been listed in different Precincts & Counties without even moving because of all the boundary changes.
Some proof exist in the references for the early generations but not all I have listed can be proven. I tried many many times to put them together. Above is theory so do not take as proof.

listed with the NC family groups.

Elizabeth (Betty) who married John Norman and brothers Brinkley & Hugh and had other siblings. In will of
James Glisson in 1849 Henry Co.TN he list children Martha Mcdd??t?n, Elizabeth N??r??n which probably is
Martha Middleton & Elizabeth Norman. Also listed was Dennis, James, heirs of Nancy F.Lake, Boddy Leesley.

descendant of Eliza's & John Norman has a copy of a bible which list their birthdates and dates of the
children of John Norman & Eliza Glisson. Eliza previously thought to be dau of Daniel Glisson & 2nd wife
Elizabeth Kornegay. But she may have been dau of James Glisson on Martin Co. NC and Weakley & Henry Co.

female age 58, & C.W. Glisson male age 6 lived with him. Unsure who they are. Brinkley lived next to
Dennis Glisson in Henry Co. TN. I believe he is a brother to Dennis. However bible record of Martha
Glisson Middleton states she had brother Brinkley and I know they went to Henry Co. TN. Brinkley appears
to be son of James even though he was not listed in James's will.

land from father Dennis as deed of gift 1774. Bought land from father 1779, from Arthur Herring 1782,bought land

in will of his brother Jacob dated 30 Nov 1805. ?: Maiden name may have been Haywood but no proof. There were many
later Glisson named Haywood Glisson, William Haywood Glisson, John Haywood Glisson etc. that all are descendants of

family? disappears 1810-1820? John Sr would have been too old to have had children b. in the 1790's. He is
listed in will of Jacob Glisson 1805. He was also listed in 1784-87 census. All of the above census definitely
pertains to the same family. Past referenc es said they were John Sr. but I don't think so.
