    • Biography

      Jacob was born in 1705. He passed away before May 19, 1763.

      Jacob made the voyage to America at the age of 12 with his father, mother, brother and sister aboard the ship "Scott" in 1717 to America. They were part of the Second Germanna Colony that eventually settled in modern day Madison County, Virginia.

      It appears that all of Jacob's children lived to adulthood. His descendants comprise the Broyles family and his brother Conrad was progenitor of the Briles line.

      The names of his sons and daughters are given in birth order in his will and we can assign approximate birth years based on Michael's birth in June 1740, likely marriage dates for the other children, and birth years of Jacob's grandchildren. The three daughters are worked into the list in similar fashion.

      28 March 1705 - Hans Jacob and Conrad Bre˙el, twin sons of Johannes and Ursula Bre˙el, are christened at the Evangelical Lutheran Church in čOtisheim, in the Duchy of Wčurttemberg (present day Germany).[1] (Conrad would die young but four years later another son named Conrad would be christened.)

      1717 - The family voyages to the New World.

      2 May 1727 - Jacob Bryoll proves his right to take up land and was granted 50 acres. He apparently sold this right to Jacob Manspoil (see the entry below dated 3 Oct 1734).[2] On the same day his father did the same, and patented 200 acres. Jacob would thus appear to be on his own, and probably recently married.

      28 Sep 1728 - Jacob Broil patents 400 acres in Spotsylvania Co., Va., St. George's parish, in the great fork of the Rappahanock River on Jacob Crigler's line. [3]26:90 This tract was located on modern Weaver Hollow Road in Madison Co., Va.

      1734 - Jacob Broill is taxed for 1 tithe, in the precinct of John Mikell.

      3 Oct 1734 - Jacob Manspoil receives a patent of 400 acres based on the importation of 3 persons, including Jacob Bryell. (see 2 May 1727) [2].

      28 Jul 1737 - Jacob and Mary Catherine Broyle buy 156 acres of land "by the river side" from Ziriakus Fleischman. (The river in question is the Robinson River in modern Madison Co., Va.) On same date Ziriakus sells 200 acres to Henry Sluchter and wife Sarah. In 1743 he sells his remaining lands to Peter Fleshman.[2] We know from the church records of Neuenbčurg in Germany that Ziriakus had two surviving children, Peter and Maria Catharina by his wife Anna Barbara. As well, he had a stepson Heinrich (Henry) Sluchter by one of Anna's previous husbands.[4] These transactions show that Jacob's wife Mary Catherine was the daughter of Ziriakus Fleischmann. If additional proof is desired, one need only look at their son Cyrus, and anglicized version of Ziriakus.

      Nonetheless, Keith[2] also speaks of a tradition saying Jacob married a Wayland.
      c. 1738 - He is taxed as 1 tithable in the precinct of John Mickell.[3]27:26

      1739 - 1 tithable in the precinct of ( ), Orange Co., Va.[5]2:136

      Jacob Broyl is mentioned in the suit "Jacob Stover vs. George Home". He and John Landrum received a total of š16.15.0

      28 Aug 1741 - Jacob Broyles sues John Sutton, claiming that in December 1739 he had sold cattle & hogs to a Thomas Botts who was to pay for them the following March, April, or market-time, but who had sold them to Sutton and run off. [2]

      22 Feb 1742 - Jacob Broyl witnesses deed of John Thomas to Michael Thomas. [2]

      23 Jan 1743 - Jacob Broyle witnesses sale of land by Ziriakus Fleshman to Peter Fleshman.

      29 Jan 1743 - Isaac Smith sues Ludwig Fisher. Jacob Broyle is security for the defendant.[2]

      10 Aug 1743 - He witnesses the will of John Nicholas Blankenbeeker. He signed his name "x". Orange Co., Va. [114]1 The will was probated 22 Sep? 1743, and "dear friend" Jacob Broil and eldest son Zacharias are named executors. [2]:85

      11 Aug 1743 - He witnesses a codicil to the above will.

      26 Jul 1744 - Jacob and Conrad Broil convey to Adam Wilhite 200 acres of land patented 24 Jun 1726 by John Broil. This was their inheritance, and would indicate that their mother had died.

      25 Mar 1746 - Jacob Brayell reports, as executor, the value of Henry Fireback's property. Orange Co., Va.

      25 Mar 1752 - Jacob Breil is a sponsor at the baptism of Zacharias, son of Zacharias Blankenbaker, born this date. Catherina Breilin was a sponsor of other of Zacharias' children.[2]

      16 May 1754 - Jacob buys 200 acres from John Shafer. Culpeper Co., Va.[2]

      19 Mar 1761 - Jacob sells to his son Cyrus 200 acres for "love and affection". This land is part of a patent to Ciriakus and Peter Fleshman. It had been sold to Jacob by John Shafer on 16 May 1754.[2]

      3 Nov 1761 - Jacob's will is written. Culpeper Co., Va. [90] Wife Catherine is to have the "plantation" during her life and it is then to go to Matthias. Young sons Peter, Michael, John, and Zacharias are to have 100 acres each from the 1728 patent. Finally, he lists all of the sons in apparent birth order followed by the daughters Catherine Wayland, Elizabeth Wilhite, and Mary Broil. Sons Adam and Michael are named executors.

      17 Jan 1763 - "we the subscribers have met at the plantation of Jacob Broiles, dec'd. and have valued and appraised his estate." Adam Wayland, Adam Wilhit, Adam Yager.[6] The estate valuation is listed in [7] The date would appear to be in error because estate valuations took place after the will was proven and the executor or administrator was given power to settle the estate. Generally speaking, the probate (proving a will valid) occurred quickly after death, while it often took months or years to settle an estate. A possible explanation, given that the entry was for the first court in a new year, is that the clerk forgot the year had changed to 1764.

      21 Apr 1763 - Jacob Brayell was named executor of the will of Matthias Blankenbaker. The court appointed John Blankenbecker as executor, which means that Jacob was either incapacitated or dead at this time. [3]

      19 May 1763 - Jacob's will is probated. wit: Samuel Klug, Peter Fleshman, Robert Fleshman. [8]

      18 Nov 1771 - Mary Catherine Broyle, Adam Broile, Matthias and Eve Broile sell 166 acres to John Glassell. This appears to refer to the 156 acre tract from Jacob's will.[3]26:90

      1776 - On the 17th Sunday after Trinity, Catharina Breilin is listed on the communion roll of Hebron Church.[9]20:386
