Lawrence Dameron, Jr. was the son of Bartholomew Dameron, his mother's name was Elizabeth, she may have been Elizabeth Garlington. It is unclear why he was referred to as Junior, his grandfather was Lawrence Dameron the immigrant and his father had a brother also known as Lawrence Dameron, Jr.

In early January of 1708 Northumberland County court orders mention that Lawrence Dameron has "land adjoining John Claughton in Mattapony Neck, St. Stephens Parish." This is thought to be the land originally patented by Lawrence's grandfather when he immigrated to the colony. Mattapony Neck lies in the north end of Northumberland County near the county line with Westmoreland.

Lawrence, Jr. was listed in his father's will later in 1708. "I give unto my son Laurence one cow and calf besides what I have already given him, caryed to his plantation." Bartholomew also gave to his other son, Josiah, "The remainder part of my land in Mattapony from his brother Laurence up the Neck," he also gave Josiah pasture rights with Lawrence for seven years. Other court orders from the year 1708 refer to "Lawrence, son of Barth., grandson of Lawrence" when he purchased a mare.

Court orders from May 16th, 1717 make reference to Lawrence Dameron and his wife Jane. It appears that they only had one child, a son. In 1724 Lawrence signed a petition asking Northumberland County to recognize the Presbyterian Church. Lawrence died without a will around 1731. Jane's fate is unknown. Their son, William, was put in the custody of Lawrence's brother, Christopher.
