David Ralston Family Records
Williamson Co. TN
by Kenneth Ralston
Roulston or Rolston is
rare in Ireland outside Ulster, where it is most common in counties Tyrone and
Antrim. It is an English toponymic
and can derive from several places called Rolleston or Rowlston in
Leicestershire, Nottingham, Staffordshire, Wiltshire, or Yorkshire. All these place names were originally spelt Rolvestun,
meaning Rolfs farm. Most
in Ulster descend from the Staffordshire Rollestons, R. Rollestone of that shire
being one of the English undertakers of the Plantation.
He was granted 1000 acres in Teemore Oneilland West in Co. Armagh.
The name is also found as Rollstone and Rowlston.
This account is based on
oral family history as related by Lois R. Collins, Jim Dub R., and Fender R.,
Juriah R. records, and documents found in the Tennessee State Archives:
the English civil war, Cromwell confiscated property from Irish aristocracy,
(mostly in Northern Ireland), and gave it to English lords who had supported him
in the rebellion. Much of this land
had to be cleared and drained before it would be productive.
The English lords ordered the Irish off these farms and offered the land
at cheap rent to English tenant farmers to encourage them to relocate.
Some people named Rollestone were among those who accepted the offer.
After a hundred years or so, the land had been made productive and the
landlords raised the rents to the point that their tenants had trouble making a
living. Many emigrated and came to the United States.
By this time, (mid 1700's) the name was spelled "Ralston".
Prior to the American War of Independence,
a David Ralston, (ca.1741-1831) left two children, (Robert and Isabell), in
County Tyrone and came to Pennsylvania (probably Armstrong County) where he
married and started another family. Before
1784 he was farming on White's Creek in Davidson County, Tennessee.
His son, Alexander, was a cabinetmaker with a mill on the Harpeth River
in Williamson County, (later known as the Pettis Place).
Alexander wrote to his half-brother in Ireland and encouraged him to come
to Tennessee. Robert's son Andrew
(1793-1863) decided to emigrate. Andrew and wife (Loveagh Wauchop 1790-1848)
sent their money ahead to a bank (in New York?) and left Ireland ca. 1819. A violent storm caused the voyage to be much longer than
usual and they spent the money they had with them to buy food on the ship.
When they arrived, the bank had gone broke and they had no money to
continue their journey. Andrew lived in Pennsylvania for some time and his oldest
sons Robert and David were born there. He
eventually came to Tennessee, by boat, down the Ohio and Cumberland Rivers.
Andrew rented a farm at Windrow until he bought land on Highway 99 near
Eagleville. The Ralston families who lived at Old Jefferson, Readyville,
Nashville, Franklin, Pulaski, Martin, and Memphis were descended from David
Ralston's large second family. The
Ralstons around Eagleville are descended from David's grandson Andrew.

Until about 1831
Alexander lived on the Harpeth River in Williamson Co. TN where he had a mill. A
cabinet maker, court records show him taking apprentices. He wrote Andrew in
Ireland and encouraged him to come to the US. First wife died before the move to
Weakley Co. and buried at the home
place. Second wife Sarah Jordan daughter of Archer Jordan of Williamson County.
See Historic Williamson County Pg. 13 and 54. Major Alexander Ralston served in Col. Pipkin's Regiment in the Tennessee
militia under Andrew Jackson. This
is listed in the War of 1812 Muster Rolls & Index to War of 1812 Pension
files. This regiment of about 960
men was ordered to man the various forts of the Mississippi Territory--Forts
Jackson, Williams, Strother, Claiborne, & Pierce. Alexander Ralston was a
prominent figure in early West TN and the village of Ralston was an important
railroad station. He owned vast
sections of land and was very prolific in land purchases and sales.
