    end of biography

    John Bragg was the son of 8. Joseph B Bragg and 8a. Elizabeth Nash or Moore (1710-1757). Joseph B Bragg was born 1690 in Rappahannock, Richmond, VA and died 4 May 1747 in Richmond, Wise, VA. In December of 1714, Joseph was summoned by the Sheriff of North Farmington Parish to answer to the Grand Jury for not attending church for the past two months. On 7 July 1715 he was summoned to court and fined 100 lbs of tobacco for not attending church.

    On 16 April 1716 he married Mary Settle (Suttle) and they had 5 children: “The above is a Just and true account of what Marryage Lycences have been issued out of my Office since the 19th day of January 1709/10, a list whereof according to custom annually in October gave to the Sheriff of the Couynty to collect but by whom or to whom or in what manner they have been discharged I cannot certifie and as to the above Lycences not yet delivered to the Sheriff, I have received of ISAAC WEBB twenty shillings for the Governor Given under my hand the seventh day of May 1715 MARMADUKE BECKWITH, Cl R. Cur.“

    Almost immediately after her death, he married Elizabeth Nash (Moore). On 1 May 1723, Joseph B Bragg made a court claim seeking a reward for capturing a runaway servant named Michael Williamson belonging to William Mercalf of Northumberland County. The fact that the runaway has a first and last name and is referred to as a servant rather than a slave suggests that this was a white indentured servant. To have a chance at life in the new world, many young men and women indentured themselves to someone who paid their passage; in exchange these poor people had to agree to work for their ‘master’ for a period of time (usually 5-7 years).

    They received room and board but no pay and were supposed to be apprenticed to the master so that they learned a trade so they would have a future when they were freed. Masters often abused their servants so some did run off. Punishment could be harsh. Parents who could not afford to pay for an apprenticeship would indenture their own children in the same scheme, except that the children had to endure their indenture until they reached 21 (if they survived).

    In 1727, Joseph B Bragg was appointed “Surveyor of Highways from the Rappahannock Bridge to Coll’s Carter’s Mill…to Lisson’s Landing and ordered that he forthwith clear all the said roads according to law.”

    On 31 May 1735: “William Marks sold to Joseph Bragg 8000 lbs. tobacco of cask for 150 acres in parish of Lunenburg late north farm, being one moiety of half of 300 acre formerly granted to McHugh Barrott (g/father of Wlm Marks) & granted by B. to his dtr Patiense Marks.”

    In 1740, he again made a court claim for capturing runaway servants, this time a “woman named Wilnor Gurman belonging to Stanley Gover of this county.”

    On 26 January 1746 he made a will in Lunenburg Parish, Richmond, VA in which he bequeathed some slaves to his sons and daughters, disowned one daughter, Catherine, and left the remainder of his estate to his wife Frances:

    “In the name of God Amen I Joseph Bragg Sr. of Lunenburg Parish in the County of Richmond being very sick and week but of perfect Since and Memory thanks be to God for the same doe make and ordain this to be my last Will and Testament in manner and form following that this is my first and principally I bequeath my soul to God and that gave it my body to earth to be decently buried in a Christian manner at the discretion of my Executor hereafter named.

    Item – I give and bequeath to my son Joseph Bragg my Negro girl named Mariah to him and hid heirs forever with her increase only the first child the said Negro girl shall have that lives to be two years old it is my will and desire my young son shall have delivered to him at the age of twenty years and if in case this my young son shall dye before he arrives to the age of twenty years or without lawful heirs to my son Newman Bragg and his heirs.

    Item – I give and it is my desire that my son Monroe Bragg and his heirs shall have the plantation that he now lives on. Together with my Negro girl Hannah to him and the lawful heirs of his body begotten and if in case he should without such heirs of his body to my son John Bragg and his heirs. Item – I give my daughter Eliz. A. Bragg a cow and calf.

    Item – I give and bequeath to my daughter Catherine Bragg one schilling and noe more. Item – It is my desire that my two sons Moore Bragg and Newman should have three years schooling out of my personal estate. Item – If please God my Negroe wench Winny should have another Child after this she now goes with I give and it is my desire that my son Richard Bragg should have it to be delivered to him at age of twenty years.

    Item – I give and bequeath to my beloved wife all and singular Est. real and personal during her natural life except what I have already bequeathed and after her decease to be equally divided between my children that has not a Negro given them. Except my daughter Catherine which I desire to have no more than one schilling as before mentioned. And do also make and ordain my well beloved wife my whole and sole Ex. of this Will and Testament revoking and disannualling all other Wills and Testaments by me heretofore made as witness my hand and seals this 26th day of January 1746. Wit: Richard L. Dawson, Wm. Lawson, Ingoe Dozer.”

    Joseph B was the son of 8.Joseph Bragg and 8a. Mary Tapp. The senior Joseph was born in 1670 in Rappahannock, VA and died 4 May 1747 in Richmond, Wise, VA. He married 8a.Mary Tapp (1670-1731) in Old Rappahannock, VA on 10 March 1689 and they had two sons and two daughters. She was the daughter of THOMAS TAPP and MARY LEWIS. (Order Book Pages, Rappahannock).

    On 5 August 1685 the “Commission of Administration is granted to Mary Tapp upon the Estate of her dec’d husband, John Tapp, she giving in security to be accountable for the same either to this court or to whom it shall properly belong. Ordered that Thomas Gaymes, Rosomund Jacob, Wm Johnson & Leonard Chamberlaine do the last day of Sept next, inventory and appraise the estate of John Tapp dec’d and that they make report thereof under their hands at the next south side court held for this county. Mary Tapp, together with John Waters, enter themselves in an assumpsit of 10,000 lbs of tobacco and cask for the said Mary Tapp’s due administration of the estate of her dec’d husband committed to her. [This record refers, perhaps, to Mary Tapp Bragg’s mother Mary Lewis Tapp.]

    On 2 December 1685 Ordered that Mary Tapp make her personal appearance at next south side Court held for this county and that she give and exact and true account (upon oath) of her decd husband’s estate.

    On 1 December 1731 at Richmond Co., Virginia, Bond of Joseph Bragg, Charles Bragg, Richard Branham & Henry Suttel of Richmond, in the sum of 100 Pounds to insure that Joseph and Charles Bragg, Administrators of all the goods, chattels, and credits of Mary Bragg dec’d make an inventory of the goods etc of the dec’d.6 An inventory of her estate was presented by Joseph and Charles Bragg, administrators on 5 January 1732 at Richmond Co., Virginia. (Death; Title: George Harrison Sanford King, Registers of North Farnham Parish 1663-1814 and Lunenburg Parish 1783-1800., Pg. 19).

    His father was 9. John Bragg and his mother 9a.Alice Sheffield or Bassett (1647-1663). John was born 1647 in Rappahannock, VA and died there, we think, after 1670. He married Alice Sheffield (Bassett) in 1663 at the age of 16 and they had four sons. He served in the Colonial troops before the Revolutionary War.

    Biography

    Thomas was born about 1664. He was the son of Francis and Elizabeth Settle. At the time of his father's death, he was married and settled on the tract of land that his father left him in his will. No information pertaining to his wife has been found, but, she must have preceded him in death as he makes no reference to her in his will. He does mention his son Thomas and a granddaughter Catherine Burrsa and a great grandson Tarplay Bragg. The granddaughter may have been the child of an unknown daughter, and no one has discovered who Tarply was. Thomas passed away about 1747.[1]

    Biography

    You will find this person with a middle name of Posthumous all over the web. That is because he was born after his father passed. In his father's will, his father refers to this unborn child.[1]

    Francis Settle was born about 1622-1623 in Yorkshire, England. He married firstly Elizabeth Unknown in 1658 and secondly, Mary Williams about 1702. He died on Totusky Creek, Richmond Co., Virginia in 1707.[2][3]

    Francis was transported before 1657 by William Underwood.[4]

    His wife, Elizabeth was mentioned in a land deed on May 2, 1665, based on that date, she must have been the mother of all of his children. With her he had four children:

    JOHN (1659 - 1738),
    FRANCIS (JR.) (1661 - 1701),
    THOMAS (1664 - 1748), and
    HENRY (1666 - 1702)

    After Elizabeth's death in 1701, he married MARY WILLIAMS (widow of RICE WILLIAMS) in 1702 and had children.

    Francis died in 1708 on his plantation on Totusky Creek in North Farnham Parish, Richmond County, Virginia, where he had made his home for approximately a half century. He lived to be 85 years of age.

    There has been speculation that Francis' first wife's maiden name was most likely a Bruce. [5]. The church of "All Saints"[6] did not record anything in their registers between 1602 and 1631. Either the church was being built or repaired, they had no priest or the registers for Barwick in Elmet were recorded at another church during that time, which is very common. To date, no evidence exits of a known last name for Elizabeth.

    Generation No. 1

    1. THOMAS1 BRAGG was born Abt. 1580 in England. He married MARY (MOLLY) NEWPORT Abt. 1615 in James Town, James City, Virginia, daughter of CHRISTOPHER NEWPORT and KATHERINE PROCTOR.

    Notes for THOMAS BRAGG:

    There is a common folk-tale of "Six Bragg brothers in England. Three went North, three went South." Thomas, William, and John being the ones who went South in England. Supposedly the Susan Constant (under Adm. Christopher Newport's command and, according to Daughter's of the American Revolution,carrying two Bragg teenagers, Thomas and John.

    Thomas Bragg and Molly Newport were joined in matrimony about two years before Christopher Newport's death. Born in England around the year 1580, Thomas served a stint in the British Navy prior to being hired by his future father-in-law. Little is known about his life in England, just that he and two brothers, John and William, came to America, settled, and became the ancestors of the vast majority of Bragg families currently living in the United States.

    Having "obtained land grants from the Crown" for his services in the Navy, Thomas and his new bride, Molly Newport, settled down to begin raising their children, the first Braggs born in America, William (1624) and John Bragg. Little is known about John and his family, but the descendants of his brother William have been extensively researched. William was blessed with the birth of a son (John) in 1647. The child was born at Old Rappahannock, Virginia, the location to which William migrated.

    About Thomas (The Immigrant) Bragg
    True or not. There seems to be to much info for Thomas to not have been both real and married to Mary/Molly Newport. He worked for Capt Newport on his 2nd trip and married a daughter. As we know children are left out of records sometimes when born last. Until there is more definitive proof I am considering Thomas/Molly/Christopher my kin. Rather than argue the point I plan to keep this in my tree. JDBragg.5.24.11 Thomas Bragg 1580 m.1610 Mary/Molly Newport Bragg 1585 -25f -30m

    Additional curator's notes: The information about Thomas is generally accepted as correct but the name and family of his wife is disputed by several researchers. The citations below show both sides of the dispute. Documents have not been found by any researcher yet to settle the matter.The DAR accepts that Thomas Bragg arrived in Jamestown on the ship Susan Constant, commanded by Adm. Christopher Newport.

    Newport made many trips between England and Virginia over a five year period, including the voyage of the Sea Venture which wrecked in Bermuda due to storms. It would not have been unusual occurrence for a naval officer to transport his family to a colony where he made frequent trips. The belief that his daughter could have been in Virginia, met Thomas Bragg and married him is plausible but NOT proven. Maria Edmonds-Zediker, Curator, 4/22/2011

    Immigrated to James Town settlement from England in about the early 1600's. Not clear on any record showing he was married to Mary Molly Newport--the daughter of the famed Capt. Christopher Newport. There are stories that Thomas came over with two brothers, but again this is circumstantial. Thomas was reported to do a stint in the Royal Navy even though there is no actual evidence or record of this. The only story of how he and Mary came to be husband and wife is that he was reportedly Cap't Newtons best mariner thus making their marriage a possibility. But this is just a great story without the evidence to support it. I would imagine that due to the conditions and hardships of the new settlement that record keeping would be nearly non existing in James Town. I have researched copies of the remaining records of James Town, which show no evidence of the existance of Thomas Bragg or Mary Molly Newport. If there is evidence or sources that someone has, please e-mail me at nathan.brgg@gmail.com

    end of biography

    Thomas Bragg was born before 23 January 1579 in Lancashire, England and was baptized on that date in Hawkshead, Lancashire, ENG. The marriage date and place for Thomas and Mary is still unclear, but it is believed that they married in Jamestown, VA about 1615. One record indicates that he arrived at Jamestown, VA in 1649, at the age of 70, and died there in 1660, but this ‘arrival’ might have been after returning from a visit to England.

    This is a version of the story of the English Bragg brothers, 3 of whom went north and 3 south. Thomas, William, and John went south and sailed on the Susan Constant with Captain Christopher Newport (former pirate and eventual Admiral of the RN fleet in charge of the VA expeditions. The DAR has confirmed that Thomas and John Bragg, teenagers, were on board.

    Thomas served in the Royal Navy prior to being hired by Capt. Newport, his future father-in-law. Having “obtained land grants from the Crown” for his services in the Navy, Thomas and his new bride, Molly Newport, settled down to raise children, the first Braggs born in America, William (1624) and John Bragg. Little is known about John and his family, but the descendants of his brother William have been extensively researched. (Bragg Family Genealogy Forum http://genforum.genealogy.com/bragg and ancestry.com).

    Thomas Bragg (1579-1660) was the son of 12. Thomas Bragg and 12a. Agnes Braithwaite (1550-). He was born 17 November 1551 in Solihull, Warwickshire, England, married Agnes Braithwaite 23 January 1579 at Hawkshead, Lancashire, ENG and died after 1579. More on the Moore/Bragg lineage to come…

    Biography

    Name

    Molly was a nickname for Mary, so her real name was probably Mary.

    Birth

    Molly was born in 1590. She is the daughter of Christopher Newport and Katherine Proctor. [1]

    Undocumented Speculation

    She is not listed in the will of Christopher Newport. Newport married Katherine Proctor about 1585 and she was dead by 1590, so if Molly is a child of this marriage she was born in that time frame, say 1586.

    She would have been 31 and married when Christopher Newport died in 1617.

    All of this is speculation based upon the dates of others in her alleged family. Her profile should remain "unsourced" until some documentation arises!

    About Thomas Bruce, 1st Earl of Elgin

    The Scots peerage, Vol. III, page 477-478


    end of profile

    Thomas Bruce, 1st Earl of Elgin, 3rd Lord Bruce of Kinloss (1599–1663), of Houghton House in the parish of Maulden in Bedfordshire, was a Scottish nobleman.

    Early life

    Born in Edinburgh in 1599, Thomas Bruce was the second son of Edward Bruce, 1st Lord Kinloss by his wife Magdalene Clerk. He succeeded to the Scottish peerage title as 3rd Lord Bruce of Kinloss in August 1613, aged 13, on the death of his elder brother, Edward Bruce, 2nd Lord Kinloss, killed in a duel with Edward Sackville, 4th Earl of Dorset. The family estates included Whorlton Castle and manor given to his father by King James I of England in 1603. The King granted the wardship of Thomas and the estates to his mother Magdalene, until he came of age at 21.[1]

    In 1624, King James I granted Houghton House to Thomas Bruce, near Ampthill, Bedfordshire. The house was built by architects, John Thorpe and Inigo Jones, in the Jacobean and Classical style for Mary Herbert, Dowager Countess of Pembroke;[2] it had been reverted to the King by Mary's brother, two years after the Countess' death in 1621. It became the principal residence for the Bruce family for over a century.[3][4] King Charles I of England later granted him nearby Houghton Park to preserve game for the royal hunt, but persistent hunting and hawking by the local Conquest family forced the King's subsequent intervention.[3][5]
    New titles

    During King Charles I's period of Personal rule, Thomas Bruce maintained close relations with the court. He attended the King for his coronation in Scotland in 1633 and was created Earl of Elgin on 21 June 1633.

    The year after performing in Thomas Carew's masque, Coelum Britannicum, Bruce received the degree of Master of Arts from the University of Oxford in 1636. He was invested as a Knight in 1638 at Windsor, along with William Villiers and Henry Frederick, Prince of Wales.[6]

    Thomas Bruce continued in royal favour. He was created Baron Bruce of Whorlton, in the Peerage of England, on 29 July 1641.[7][8] In 1643, he was appointed "Keeper of the King's Park" at Byfleet, a role he held until 1647.[9]
    Civil War

    Although Bruce's sister Christian Cavendish, Countess of Devonshire was a notable Royalist, Bruce himself took the side of the Parliamentarians, serving on several county committees from 1644 to Pride’s Purge.[5]

    Shortly before the 1648 outbreak of the Second English Civil War, fellow scot, William Murray, 1st Earl of Dysart, whipping boy of Charles I and husband of his relative, Catherine Bruce, appointed Bruce as principal trustee of Ham House to act on behalf of his wife, Catherine, and their daughters. The move was successful in helping protect Murray's ownership of the estate by making sequestration by the Parliamentarians both more difficult and, given Elgin's influential position with the Scottish Presbyterians, politically undesirable.[10]

    Bruce was later described by Sir Philip Warwick as 'a Gentleman of a very good understanding, and of a pious, but timorous and cautious mind'. He recounted how Bruce expressed some uneasy regret for his actions, that he had tried to avoid parliament when he could and denied having been one of the handful of lords that condemned Archbishop Laud to death.[11]
    Marriages & progeny

    Thomas Bruce married twice:
    Effigy in the Church of St Peter and St Paul, Exton, to Anne Chichester (d.1627) (Countess of Elgin), daughter of Sir Robert Chichester.

    Firstly, on 4 July 1622, he married Anne Chichester (d.1627), a daughter of Sir Robert Chichester of Raleigh (1578-1627), by his first wife, Frances Harington (d. 1615), a daughter of John Harington, 1st Baron Harington of Exton (1540-1613), and a co-heiress of her brother John Harington, 2nd Baron Harington of Exton (1592-1614). Anne was a half-sister of Sir John Chichester, 1st Baronet, of Raleigh (1623-1667).[12] She died on 20 March 1626/27,[7] the day after having given birth to an only child:
    Robert Bruce, 1st Earl of Ailesbury (1626-1685), only son and heir.

    The Ailesbury Mausoleum, Maulden Churchyard, Bedfordshire, built by Thomas Bruce, 1st Earl of Elgin, in memory of his 2nd wife Diana Cecil. One of the earliest free-standing mausoluems built in England[13]

    Secondly, on 12 November 1629, he married Lady Diana Cecil (d.26 February 1658),[14] daughter of William Cecil, 2nd Earl of Exeter by his second wife, Elizabeth Drury, and widow of Henry de Vere, 18th Earl of Oxford.[15] The marriage was without issue. Diana had married de Vere in 1624, just a year before his death, and thus brought with her considerable estates at West Tanfield and Manfield, near Bruce's existing Yorkshire estates, as well as property in Lincolnshire and Middlesex, including Clerkenwell Priory.[1] Thomas built in her memory, the Ailesbury Mausoleum, in the churchyard of St. Mary's Church, Maulden, in Bedfordshire, an octagonal building built over an already existing crypt. Inside the Mausoleum survives the monument to Diana, and marble busts of her husband Thomas and of his grandson Edward Bruce.[16] Sir Howard Colvin identified it as one of the first two freestanding mausoleums in England, the other being the Cabell Mausoleum in Buckfastleigh, Devon.[17]

    Death

    Thomas Bruce died on 21 December 1663 at the age of 64, and was succeeded by his son and heir Robert Bruce, 2nd Earl of Elgin, 1st Earl of Ailesbury.[18]
