Witnesses to the March 18, 1823 will of William Pope included James Wells and Josiah Wells; possibly they were island planters since the 1783 Navy map shows a Wells Family holding Possum Point Plantation. Charles Wells and John Wells appear in St. Helena’s Parish Register in 1734 and 1740; Mary Wells married island planter Daniel Savage in 1736 and Susannah Wells married James Pope in 1755.
