The family of Isaac DuBosc is found among the earliest families in the Province
of Carolina. Isaac Dubosc came to Charles Towne ca. 1685/87 and settled along
the Santee River. The "List of French and Swiss Refugees in the Province of
Carolina who wished to be Naturalized English" was prepared 1695/96 and included
Isaac DuBosc, son of Louis DuBosc, and Anne DuBosc, of Dieppe in Normandy,
France; Suzanne DuBosc, his wife, daughter of Pierre and Susane Couillandeau,
native of "La Tramblade" in Xaintonge. The mother of Suzanne DuBosc was Marie
(not Susane) Fougeraut Coullandeau, who married 2nd Moise Brigaud and who sold
Lot #90 in Charles Towne that she had purchased in 1688 from Henry Hughes. This
was in the Plat and Draught of the said Charles Towne. Henry Hughes was granted
the lot in 1680. This would have been the original Draught of Charles Towne. In
the deed she refers to her daughter Suzanne Dubose and her son-in-law Isaac
Dubose. On this document, Isaac Dubose signed his name as "-- Dubos".
"The Royal Land Grants" books in the Dept. of Archives, Columbia, S. C., show
Grants of land for Isaac DuBosek, Dubose, etc., and also for Isaac (2nd.),
Andrew, Daniel, John, Peter, Stephen, Joseph, Samuel, Benjamin, William, and
many others. The name is spelled many different ways and the Dubose family had
many grants and plats.
Isaac Dubose, the emigrant, made a Will dated 6-19-1714 which cannot now be
located but is referred to in a Document of his widow in 1733 in Memorial Vol.
8, p. 245, Archives, Columbia, S. C., which states he left all property not
disposed of to her for her lifetime and then to his children, eight in number,
but not listed by name. Isaac Dubose died between 1714 and 1721 for in 1721 his
widow is found purchasing land as "widow". On March 11, and 12, 1733, Susannah
Dubose, widow of Berkeley Co., put her property in Trust to John Laurens as a
marriage was intended between Suzanne Dubose and Bentley Cooke, whom she married
in 1733. Her property did not pass to the children until 1742. Deed Book AA-ZZ
(1744-1773) page 185, Charleston, S. C., shows the Deed of Gift 6-12-1742 of
Isaac Dubose, son of Susannah Cooke and heir-at-law to her real estate, making a
division of his mother's estate. The children that participated in the
distribution of the estate were: Isaac Dubose, Elizabeth Whilden, Daniel Dubose,
Stephen Dubose, John Dubose, Andrew Dubose, and Peter Dubose.

The Will of Isaac Dubose mentioned 8 children. Records show the eighth child was
probably Antoine Dubose who witnessed several deeds of the family and is listed
in the Charleston Directory of the City in 1735. He was deceased by 1742.
The DuBois family that was in Charleston at the same time has caused many errors
in the Dubose records. Charleston, S. C., Wills Vol. 1722-24, shows a John
DuBois died intestate with widow Jane DuBois, Admin. 12-6-1723. This John DuBois
could not have been the John Dubose, son of Isaac Dubose the emigrant, as John,
son of the emigrant, received his share of his father's property in 1742.
The lineage of the Isaac Dubose family in South Carolina begins with Louis
DuBose and his wife Anne, of Dieppe, Normandy, the parents of Isaac Dubose b.
ca. 1660 d. 1714/21 who married ca. 1680 Suzanne Couillandeau (b. ca. 1663 d.
1742). The children of Isaac and Suzanne DuBose (Dubose) were: Antoine,
Elizabeth, Daniel, Andrew, Isaac, John, Stephen, and Peter Dubose.


Elizabeth Dubose, b. ca. 1695 m. ca. 1721 Jonathan Whilden who d. 1738. His Will
is recorded 3-21-1736, Charleston, S. C. They lived in Christ Church Parish.
Their children were:

 A. Jonathan Whilden, Jr., b. 1722 m. 1749 Ann King;

 B. Elisha Whilden, b. 12-30-1729, m. Ann (they had issue - Elias Whilden, b.
12-18-1765 d. 6-16-1835 who m. 1st 1791 Sarah Dorrill; and m. 2nd 1815 Laura
Emma Rowland, William S. Whilden, b. 4-25-1768 d. 1-7-1834, m. Sarah Anderson;
Ann Whilden; Robert Whilden; and Elizabeth Whilden who m. Joseph Dorrill.) 

 C. Elizabeth Whilden, b. 1726. 

 D. Joseph Whilden, b. 1724, m. Dorcas and their children were: Elisha, Martha,
and Elizabeth Whilden. There were possibly others. 

 E. Susannah Whilden, b. 1733. 

 F. Mary Whilden, b. 1736. 

 G. John Whilden, b. 1731, m. 1755 Susannah Murrell and their children were:
Joseph 1761-1793, (who m. 1788 Charlotte Robinson and had son Joseph); and
Charlotte Whilden who m. 1786 Rayfield Waller.


As far as is known Anthoine DuBose died without issue. Since he was not in the
group to share his father's estate, It is believed he was deceased prior to
1742. No family has been found for him. 


Daniel Dubose, son of Isaac and Suzanne Dubose, the emigrants, was b. ca. 1697
and m. Anne Rembert, granddaughter of Andre Rembert, and daughter of Pierre
Rembert. Daniel and Anne Dubose lived in St. James Parish and are on that
"Parish Register 1753 to 1788." They had one child, Anne Dubose, who m. Daniel
Jaudon in 1759 as shown in St. James Parish Marriages. Daniel died ca. June 1755
From Inventory record 6-9-1755, Charleston, S. C., records. In the inventory
mention is made of notes given to the Admin. for use of the orphan.
