William Magee was born sometime before about 1700. He was living on a tract of land on the northeast side of Fishing Creek, Edgecombe Precinct, North Carolina on 22 Aug 1733, when John Stewart of Edgecombe Precinct bound himself in the sum of 100 pounds, with the provision that he would make "unto the sd. McGee title of inheritance in fee simple in a tract of land on the north east side of Fishing creek, being the plantation whereon the sd. McGee now lives" (Edgecombe Co NC deed, 22 Aug 1733, John Stewart to Wm. McGee, recorded in Halifax Co NC DB 1, 42). On the same date, John Stewart made bond for 100 pounds to Robert "Greaves", on the condition that Stewart would "make one deed of gift for 300 acres being the upper part of that tract whereon the above bound John doth live, within 6 months after the sd. Stewart shall receive a patent for the same" on the north east side of Fishing Creek (Edgecombe Co deed 22 Aug 1733, recorded in Halifax Co NC DB 1, 41). This leads me to the conclusion that William McGee and Robert Greaves married daughters of John Stewart, and that he was giving them his property in preparation for Stewart's removal from the area. Since I conclude that John Stewart's daughter married William Magee, this would mean that the William Magee in the above bond could not have been the William Magee who married Ann Moore. The latter (William Magee who married Ann Moore) was the son of the former.

John Stewart made two other deeds in Edgecombe. The first was executed 20 Aug 1734, for 6 pounds, for a tract on the north side of Fishing Creek, part of a grant to James Bryant 4 Aug 1730 (Hofmann, 11, ref to DB 1, 116); the second was executed by John Stewart "of Onslow Co." to George Stephenson 9 Jan 1737, 25 pounds, for 320 acres on SS Marratock River and the north side of the north east branch of the first fork of Fishing Creek, joining James Bryant (Hofmann, 21, ref to DB 1, 237).

William Magee appears to be the father of John, William and Solomon Magee. John and Solomon also held land on the north side of Fishing Creek, acquiring their holdings several years after 1733. All of the children of the elder William will receive further treatment in the appropriate places.
