Additional Information:

During the colonial period a Sayre family settled on a plantation on the north side of Broad Creek, land ultimately merged into Otterbirn. Jeremiah Sayre and Elizabeth Green were married in 1770; the 1786 birth of a daughter, Sarah Bell, is recorded in St. Helena’s Register. An interesting map of the area was drawn by R. Sayre and J. Bennett in 1775. Jeremiah Sayre owned parts of Lots 14, 15, 16 of Bayley’s Barony in 1783.
