     William Washington Quarles married Sarah Ann Day, daughter of John Day and Elizabeth WoJohnDay, in 1821. Sources on the Averett family list Sarah Ann Day's first husband as Samuel Quarles.

William built a four-room house on this land with a wide hall for his bride upon this property.

     Anthony Rackley Anthony Rackley was obviously named afted his great-grandfather,Anthony North.
On 13 Feb 1737, Anthony Rackley witness the will of Peter Leath ofSouthwark Parish, Surry Co VA. The last record we have of theRackleys in colonial VA is the sale to Charles Leath of 200 acres onthe Nottaway River and Indian Swamp in Surry (present-day Sussex) Coby Anthony Ratleif, who used as his mark the large underlined capitalA. Anthony Rackley in NC later used the same mark. The land Anthonysold in 1741 had been obtained by grant in1740. Landmarks indicatethat it is situated in the southwestern corner of present-day SurryCo. Anthony's involvement with the Leaths suggest a familyrelationship.
While Anthony was in Surry/Sussex Co from 1737 to 1741, his son Johnpushed southward into a part of Bertie Co NC.
On 10 Apr 1749, Anthony Rackley and his son John bought land on FoxCreek in Granville (now Franklin Co) Co NC from William Sims. On 30Apr 1753, John (Anthony's son) received a grant from Earl Granvillefor 560 acres on Buffalo Creek in present-day Franklin. The land wassurveyed on 20 Oct 1751. A sworn chain bearer was supposed to be atleast 21 years of age and someone other than the grant applicant.John sold land from his grant to Saul and Person Rackley in 1755.Thus the brothers John and Anthony and their rapidly maturingfamilies, settled near the Tar River in Franklin, just a few mileseast of the place where Louisburg was authorized to be laid out as thecounty seat in 1779.

     Anthony Rackley , son of John Rackley II and Jane Mills, was born circa 1700 at Essex Co, Virginia.
     Anthony Rackley died after 1765. Duplin Co, NC, probably.

Rackley
     Edward Rackley In the early days of the Colony of Virginia, death from natural causes and Indian raids seemed to claim the colonists as fast as new settlers arrived. To encourage people to come to the New World, a policy of headrights was adopted. Fifty acres of land would be given to each person who paid the cost of transport for himself or for any other person. Headright records indicate that Edward Ratcliffe camefrom England to Virginia in or before 1639. In 1641 Richard Preston received 250 acres for the transport of five servants, including 'Edward Ratcliffe'. Both citations appear to be misspellings of the Rackley surname, which also appears in Virginia records as Ratlief,Ratleiff, Ratliffe, Rackly, Racle, Racly, Ratly, and Rattle. Names were spelled as they sounded in those days. There is no documentationas to the identity of the other four 'servants' who came over with Edward nor any documentation as to why they came. Richard Rackley also arrived in 1639 and nearly 40 years later, about 1676, William Rackley settled in New England, having come over as boatswain on a ship out of Bristol. No relationship is known between Richard,William, and our Edward. Edward Rackley probably remained in the service of Richard Preston for the customary period of seven years.Once on his own, Edward seems to have prospered. In 1657, he obtained the aforementioned 400 acres of land in present-day Essex County, VA.The site 12 miles above Nansemond Towne is approximately half way between the modern towns of Tappahannock and Port Royal. On 21April 1657, Edward Rackley patented 400 acres of land on the southside of the Rappahannock River, behind land of John Gilliot, about 12 miles above Nansemond Towns. He obtained that land through headrights, by having paid the passage to the Colony of Virginia for eight new settlers. The date of Edward's patent is only 50 years after the founding of the colony. In 1658 Edward and his Essex County neighbor Peter Ford patented 640 acres in New Kent County, VA by headrights. In 1663 they acquired another 640 acres in New Kent,also by headrights. There are presently no known records documenting the disposition of the New Kent land. This 1663 record is the last known record of Edward Rackley.
     John Rackley I , son of Edward Rackley, was born circa 1650 at Essex Co, Virginia.
     Edward Rackley died circa 1663 at Essex Co, Virginia.
