Surnames: Blitchendon/Blitchington/ Dykes/Hurst
I am researching the Blitchendon/Blitchington surname in early Barnwell Co., SC and Orangeburgh Dist. SC.
I have not yet found a connection to my ancestor, but am collecting information trying to find a clue.

Thank you.

Hi Pat,

Other researchers feel that there is a strong connection between the Blitchendon and Padgett families in the 1700's.

Regarding the will of William Patchit (Padgett) dated August 20, 1768 in Colleton County, South Carolina. John Blitchendan is listed as a witness to the will.

The Padgett's were in Barnwell County, South Carolina in the early 1800's.

Early Colonial Records - Jury duty for the General Court House at Queen Ann's Creek in Chowan Precinct, North Carolina on March 31, 1720. Listed for jury duty are Thomas Blitchenden and Samuel Pagett(Padgett).

Would you have any documents where the Blitchendon and Padgett families were together?

I am willing to share what I have on the Blitchendon family.

I live in the Orlando, Florida area and can be reached at

Warm regards,

Dennis Padgett

Hello,
I have a file of research notes from another Blitchendon/Blitchington descendant that gives some information on the connection between the Blitchendon and Padget families. The following is copies from these notes.
Sarah Blitchendon, b 1/14/1716 or 1717 listed in will of Thomas Blitchendon, m. Wm Padget, Bladen, NC and died 1790, Swinton, Sumter Dist. SC. ( Ancestry.com) Wm. Padget was the son of Margaret , dau. of Nicholas Tyner ("Descendants of Nicholas Tyner of Isle of Wight, Va"). Sarah and William Padget had the following 7 children:
William 1740-1800 ( Ancestry.com)
Samuel 1741-82 "
Elijah 1747-97
Josiah 1750-1811
Joseph Joel 1751-1800

Hello,
Thank you for the message. I am excited to be exchanging information with a Blitchington descendant!
That's great that you are interested in tracing your family history. Since I know that you are using a computer I recommend that you use a genealogy program to help organize information. I personally use Personal Ancestral File or PAF which can be downloaded for free from the LDS site www.familysearch.org. It will help you keep family groups and pedigree so that you can quickly refer to them. They also have information for beginners that will help. Rootsweb also is a great site to use.
Begin by recording what you know about your family and working your way back generation by generation. The US Census records are very valuable. Have you been in an LDS Family Center? There is probably one near where you live. If you need help finding one I will be glad to assist.
Good Hunting and I you will find as much joy as I have in tracing your family.
Pat
