Robert T. BOYD was born about 1790 in North Carolina. He was also known as Robert Boyd Sr. He died Unknown.

In the 1840 Horry District, census Robert Boyd Sr., is listed as head of household. In the household are one male under 5; two males 5 to 10 years of age; two males 15 to 20 years of age; one male 50 to 60 years of age (himself). 

Three females 5 to 10 years of age; one female 15 to 20 years; one female 40 to 50 years old (wife?). no slaves listed. Robert Boyd is living beside Nicholas Prince Sr. head of a well known and researched Horry County, family. On the other side is who I take to be his son is a Robert Boyd Jr. Three doors up is who I take to be his father or brother is Simon Boyd. I would rather think that the aboved named Simon would better fit as a brother than a father as they both are in the same age range. (WSH)
