Mid 18th century records of Prince Edward County indicate patent claims for Bartelot and Charles Anderson brothers of the York Basin Anderson family, therefore it is likely that some of the above are descendants of theirs. Researchers in this county should be cautious, because there is quite a mix of families including those of the south side families as well as those from the north side of the James River.
