I show his parents as Benjamin Ladson, b. Apr 13, 1752 and Mary Unknown and
that he had a sister Elizabeth Ann who married Daniel C. Webb.  Benjamin
Ladson's parents were Benjamin Ladson and Elizabeth Perry who were married
Mar 19, 1748/49 in Stono, SC.  His parents: Samuel Ladson and Elizabeth
Toomer.  His parents:  John Ladson, b. 1660 and Mary Stanyarne.  John Ladson
had a brother Francis Ladson from whom my husband descends.  This
information came from two sources--the more recent from Jean-Benedict de
Saussure who was a frequent contributor to the Huguenot list, and the
earlier information from:

Fishburne, Henry Gordon, "The Ladson Family of South Carolina and Georgia
1678-1900" The Reprint Company, Publishers. Spartanburg, SC 1995., 12,
Francis Ladson, planter, arrived in South Carolina before 2 November 1678.
The record of his brother John provides the information that they came from
Northhamptonshire in England. The record of John indicates that he came to
Carolina by way of the Barbadoes Islands and we assume Francis did also.
Francis received a warrant from the Lords Proprietors of Carolina on 2
November 1678 for one hundred acres of land on the Ashley River. He received
a warrant for another one hundred acres of land on 6 May 1696. This land was
just west of Magnolia and lying on the Ashley River. By way of his will in
1717 he devised this land to his six children. He also received a warrant
for two hundred acres of land in Berkeley County 21 November 1707. The
information about his will and the names of his six children appeared in
"South Carolina Historical Magazine" 20:97. Resource: SCHM 20:97; Salley and
Olsberg, "Warrants for Lands" pp. 185, 548, 639; "First Settlers of South

Hope this helps.
