I'm posting what I have from my files hoping it will be helpful to someone. I beleive my Lancaster's came into Guilford Co from Warren Co NC -

1850 Census - LANCASTER LEVI F. Guilford Co. North Carolina pg 399 Northern Division

The 1830 census of Guilford Co North Carolina shows a John, Benjamin and Lawrence Lancaster living next or near each other. They all are listed as being 30 to 40 years of age with wives (assuming) at 30 to 40 years of age. John has 3 boys and 3 girls, Benjamin has 3 boys and two girls and Lawrence is shown with 2 boys and 2 girls.

I also found these marriage bonds - Benjamin Lancaster and Rebecca Perkins 12 Jul 1817, Guilford Co, NC
Lawrence Lancaster and Rebecca Price, 03 Aug 1815 Warren Co., NC Their are two marriages listed for a John Lancaster in Warren County, NC One to a Amy Bobbitt 17 Feb 1813 and one to a Polly Bennett 23 Dec 1813

pg 170 partial page showing Lancaster neighbors 1830 Guilford Co., NC Census
Heads of Household in order:
Drury Wood or Woof
John Lancaster
Benj Lancaster
Dudley Jaks/Johs
Laurence Lancaster
John Mendenhall
Aaron Mendenhall
Joseph Perkins
Nathan Rail
Benj Church

It appears that since both Laurence and John married in Warren County they may have came to Guilford sometime after 1820. Perhaps Benjamin was younger??? Below is the Lancaster's I found on the 1820 census for Warren County, NC, all in Warrenton township. The household members were difficult to read, so I can't guarantee they're correct.

(a Harris Bobbitt is shown close (two households away) to Laurence Lancaster. John Lancaster married an Amy Bobbitt in 1817)

Wiley or Arly Lancaster

Also - The Laurence that married Rebecca Price in 1815 in Warren Co is referred to several times as "Laurence R. Lancaster." He is listed with that middle initial on
the marriage bond.
