George Douglas of Accomack County, Virginia

Thank you William. I have found my computer to be stubborn. For the past couple of years I have become dependent upon secondary sources as travel for any distance is difficult. I make use of a book by Marshall who has abstracted the early wills and Administrations of Estates. In the index we find a reference to George Douglas who was an emigrant and came to Accomack County. The index gave the wrong page for him. However, I recently, I found the correct page. George was a witness to the will of…See More

Rev Thomas Teackle

After the death of Thomas Teackle an inventory of his personal effects was made and the inventory of 329 books constituted the finest private library in America. These books were printed in English, Latin, Greek, and other languages. There were books on theology, medicine, history, etc. I knew he was favored by the Crown, and was recognized as an outstanding ecclesiastic and he was so honorable to his first wife, Isabella. That he was so erudite took me by surprise. The first college in America…See More

Martha Senior

Posted on January 13, 2018 at 17:16 0 Comments

I suggest that Martha went to live in Accomack County with Gertrude. This made it appropriate for her to correspond with Judge Lee. It appears that Martha and her parents were strainied in their relationship. Gertrude was the widow of Henry Hermanson and, if my memory serves me correctly, a daughter of none other than Edmund Bowman, cousin of Lt. Colonel Edward Douglas.  John Senior and Martha Willett had two daughters and they were mentioned in his will. I descend from Mary Senior and will…

Willett and Senior Families

Posted on January 13, 2018 at 17:04 0 Comments

I have mentioned that George Douglas of Accomack County had two sons, namely Arthur and James. Neither son had male children. When I addressed the Willett-Senior families I was not thinking clearly. I had two problems-one, I was trying to present the Senior family from the down up. This never works well for me. I shall go to the head of this constellation of families and work down. The head shall be Ensign Thomas Savage. The second problem relates to Martha Willett. I had found a reference…

Captain William Willett

Posted on January 1, 2018 at 17:27 0 Comments

Captain William Willett and his wife, Ann Stringer, had a son named Thomas Willett. Thomas might have been named for a Willett. He might, also, have been named for one of his family in Scotland. Not all, but much of this is speculation on my part.

I was describing the will of John Senior. Witnesses to will were William Bishop, Edward Peake, and William Willett. At probate Martha Senior refused and Gertrude Harmanson qualified. I happen to descend from Isabel Senior. Now, poor Martha leaves her two children with her brother, Captain William Willett and takes off for Yorktown to be with her mother.

At the moment I cannot remember the name of Elizabeth Willett's husband. I do remember seeing that she is mentione twice in the…

Henry

I am following your post with great interest. There are early researchers of my line that have tried to connect Col Edward Douglas 1713-1795 to Lt Col Douglas line through his son Edward. I had thought this impossible because I thought Edward Jr had dird without issue. Your recent blog comments seem to suggest otherwise. I had changed my focus from Lt Col Douglas to a James Douglas, of Kincardineshire as a possible father candidate for Col Edward Douglas. Perhaps there is something to the idea that he wss descended from Lt Col Douglas. You have renewed my interest. Thank you. My email address is davidd1103@gmail.com. I will continue to follow your blog with great interest.

Welcome, Henry. Hopefully someone will know Colonel Edward.
 
 
 

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
