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

As my revisions are extensive I have decided to make use of a new blog post rather than edit an existing post.

Sir Thomas Dale was born in Surry County, England. We know this because when he was knighted June 19th 1606 by King James 1 at Richmond he was giving Sir Thomas' place of birth. At an early age he and his family moved to Middlesex Co. It is possible that his brother, Richard, and his sister, Isabella, were born in Middlesex County.

We do not know the exact date of…

Edward Douglas of Accomack County, Virginia.

The given name of 'Edward' is rarely seen in 17th and 18th century Scotland. However, when I look at early America the given name 'Edward' is fairly common. I wonder if Edward Douglas of Accomack County is responsible for this. George Douglas, the emigrant, had a son named 'Edward'.

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?
