Esther Ball and Mary Outerbridge were the grandchildren of Thomas Smith. His sister was Mary Basset of Charleston, South Carolina. Esther married George Ball; Mary married William Outerbridge. Both couples lived on Mariner Island, Bermuda, during the 18th century.
This collection consists of a 1766 deed from Mary and William Outerbridge and George and Esther Ball to John Hodgson of South Carolina for Lot 315 in Charleston, South Carolina, sold for £4,000. The lot originally belonged to Mary Basset of South Carolina. At her death, she left the lot to her daughter, Dorothy Basset. Dorothy married John Edwards, but they did not have an heir to whom they could leave the property. Therefore, the property passed to Thomas Smith, Mary Basset's brother. Through Thomas, the land passed to his granddaughters and heiresses, Mary Outerbridge and Esther Ball.
