LADY AXTELL.– I have always been puzzled to understand why William PRATT is his Journal, REGISTER, xxviii., 468, gave the title Lady AXTEL to Rebecca, widow of Daniel AXTELL, whose will I communicated to the REGISTER, xliv., 51.  I think I have just found the explanation.  In the last Calendar of State Papers, Colonial Series, America and West Indies 1669-1674, is a list of the Landgraves, Cassiques and Deputies in Carolina.  Daniel AXTELL was one of the Landgraves, and the title Lady was very naturally given to his widow in consequence of the position held by her husband during his life.
