Here is what I had in a file on Abel Bolling:
Nel Hatcher 4/13/2005: Abel was living in SC prior to 1779. Abel censused 1790 Laurens-SC was a Loyalist during Revolution. Had land in Camden/Kershaw Dist., which became Richland Co., prior to his arrest for being a Loyalist and imprisonment (about 30 days). Some time after his release he sold his Richland land and moved into Laurens-SC where he presumably died after 1800. [Abel Bolling was Def. in lawsuit with Charles Sullivan, Plt. in 1786 and was on several juries in Laurens Co. in 1788 (Brent Holcomb: Laurens Co., SC Mins of the Co. Court 1786-1789, pp33, 43, 61, 79, 100-104)]
There is another Abel Bolling (younger man, Nel said) who is censused in 1790 in Wilkes-NC next to Benjamin Herndon, Esq. This Benj. Herndon was probably the Capt. in Wilkes-NC under whom Elihu Ayers served during the Revol. Elihu is part of the Ayers family of Pittsylvania Co., VA, with members who married Group 5 John Bolling and Rebecca Rae’s children. John and Rebecca moved prior to 1800 to Greenville-SC.
Later, Apr 2007, Diane Jones saw Able Bolling, Larkin Bolling, and Jason Cloud, Esqr., listed in an Anderson Co., TN petition dated about 1801. (Petition in BL correspondence with Diane Jones letters). Diane suggested this Able might be a son of Group 5 Joseph Bolling and Valentine Haley.
13 Jan 1774: Abel Bowling, So. Carolina, a wife & 1 child. 200 acres on ye Beaver Dam running into Savannah River about 7 miles above the Lower Cherokee path. £2:12:8, Reserve 3 months. (from GA Gen. Society website, Ceded Lands 1773-1775, Records of the Land Court at Augusta, GA) http://www.gagensociety.org/members/Wilkes_cededLands/16.php
Todd Bolen has this in his Bolling book, on Abel Bowling:

Here is what I have on him. I don't know his Family String or DNA Group. Does anyone have a guess?
Abel Bowlin along with John and William Bowlin were on the jury list 1778-79 Laurens County, South Carolina. (7) Abel and John Bowlin, on the Little River between the Broad and Saludy Rivers, 96th District, South Carolina, were on the jury list 1778-79. (307) Abell Bowling was held as a prisoner of war 1779 in Georgia for being a Loyalist, on the British side in the revolution. Abel Bolin, private, loyalist in the Revolutionary War was listed as sick, 1781, Dorchester County, South Carolina. (7) Abel Bolen was grantor on a sale deed on land laying between Wateree and Congress Rivers, Ninety-Six District, South Carolina 1782. Land grant was in his wife's name prior to their marriage. Grantee was Andrew Rogers. Witnesses were Robert Hannan and Robert Templeton. Recorded 1784. (306) Abel Boling appraised the estate of William Simms, June 8, 1789, in Laurens County, South Carolina. (7) Appraisal, 8 June 1789, of the estate of William Sims, deceased by A. Rodgers, Jr. Abel Boling (UK) and Thomas Babb. 1 rifle only. From the Greenville Co. S.C. Wills and Estates Book: abstracted. Greenville County created in 1798. (1527) Abel Bowling was in the 1790 Census of Laurens County, South Carolina. (7) In 1790 census of South Carolina, Abel had himself, 1 boy over 16, 3 males under 16, his wife and 1 girl. (946) Able Boling (UK) found in the 1800 tax list of Laurens District, South Carolina ...as per the AIS search 1 of the LDS Family History Records. (1414) In 1800 there were only three boys still with their parents. I believe the three boys were Robert born 1782 (maybe Fh550), Henry born 1784 and Daniel born 1786. In those 1790 and 1800 censuses he was listed as Abel next household to Samuel (maybe Fh610). Samuel died in 1808. (946)

I did not find the Montgomery Co. Va tax lists at our site. Where did you post them? Under which category!
BUT I did notice in looking at out site a possible son of Val and Joseph that we have not studied very much: Able Bolling. I had posted a list out of Sullivan Co. Tenn. that included all right next to each other:
Joseph Cloud, Larkin Bolling, and Able Bolling. I believe they had signed an early petition in Sullivan Co. Tenn. It is posted at the website. Able lives in 96th Dist. SC in early tax rolls...and dies there or at least estate. Can it be same one?

Why not inquire of Ms. Blomquist...or better yet order the roll of film and read it for yourself. Most libraries can order it on interlibrary loan.
If Diane found an old and infirm relieved of tax burden Major Bolling out in Pittsylvania Co. VA - who obviously would not be the rich Major Bolling, then I personally don't think it was a clerk's error.
As I told you all once before,....there is a family of Boldings from Warwickshire, England who had several infants baptized in the church records named Major Bolding/Bolling. He could quite possibly be one of them.... brought as an indentured servant.
The Bourlands who were servants to Robert Patterson quickly became land owners. So did the Gentry's mentioned right here in Goochland.
I do agree that the Major Bolling of the large land grant is NOT our line.

I haven't a clue as to who this is in your citation [if indeed it is not a clerk's error]. What I can say is that Joseph Jackson lived on the North side of the James on Bolling's Creek and Major John Bolling's primary home is to this day, shown as being on the North Side of the James River, just east of the town of Goochland.
Joseph Jackson, grantee. 17 Sept 1731, Goochland County. 400 acres on the north side of the James River on Bolling's Creek and other branches of the River. VA Land Patent Ofc Pat #14 (1728-1732), (pt. 1 & 2), p. 367 (Reel 11).
Further, if you look at the Goochland County Road Orders 1728-1744, which is on line, Joseph Jackson is mentioned on pp 9, 47; Major Bolling pp 5,6,7,35, 36 and 46 [most notably his mill[. There is nothing which indicates to me that Major Bolling listed there was a servant to anyone.
As I mentioned in an earlier e-mail, it is not far from Major John Bolling's property [or James Pleasants] on the North Side of the James to Hanover County and the South Anna River. It's within hiking distance. George Alves and his step-sons, the Harris boys, bought land in Goochland.
Thank you for posting it for us.
I had sent a photo copy of this page....but here is what I can tell you again:
This is page ii of Goochland County Virginia Court Order Book 5 1741-1745 by Ann K. Blomquist
It begins in the 4th paragraph discussing the court extending its protection to Mary Napier who was living separately from her husband Robert Napier because he had "often beaten the complainant." He [Robert] refused to provide for her food and clothing. Then she states [not naming a page or date but having just discussed p. 464] the case of Patrick Cammil brought to court due to the complaint of his servant Thomas Miller.
And here I [Hazael] quote her directly:
"On the other side, servant Major Bolling [a rather unusual name] had 25 days added to his service for "asenting himself" from his Master Joseph Jackson."
The next paragraph she mentions Stephen Hughes sued for defamation of character and loosing.
Also within this book she mentions deed Stephen Hghes to Christopher Bolling and then Christopher Bolling to James Bolling May court 1743.
