The only reason the compiler can ascribe to this action is that Captain Doniphan knew his son Mott had married an heiress and that the eldest son of this couple would inherit a goodly land estate from his mother and it was his desire to provide for the second son of Mott although he had not yet been born. Perhaps Captain Alexander Doniphan used this same reasoning when he failed to bequeath his son Robert any land, being aware he was the eldest son and heir of Margaret Mott Doniphan he was already entitled to a vast acreage; he therefore left the land in which he had a fee simple estate to his other children.

Alexander Doniphan was raised in Overwharton Parish, Stafford County, where he married 17 Jun 1740 Mary Waugh daughter of Joseph Waugh and Mary (Crosby) Waugh. From her father she inherited 1176 acres on Potomac Creek, while her husband was possessed of a considerable landed estate by inheritance and purchase in the counties of Stafford and King George.

NOTES FOR

GENERAL ALEXANDER WILLIAM DONIPHAN
Alexander William DONIPHAN was born in Mason County, Ky., July 9, 1808, the youngest in a family of ten children. His ancestors on both the paternal and maternal sides were of English extraction. His father, Joseph DONIPHAN, was a native of King George
County, Va., and removed to Kentucky with his family in 1790. His mother, whose maiden name was Ann Smith, was a native of Fauquier County Virginia and was a native of Fauquier County, Va., and was an Aunt of Gov William SMITH, of that state. Joseph Doniphan served in the American army during the entire Revolutionary struggle, and at its conclusion, being yet unmarried, he spent several years with Daniel Boone in Kentucky, and is said to have taught the first school ever opened in that state.

Our subject was left an orphan by the death of his father in 1813, and his after nuture devolved upon his mother, who was a woman of extraordinary mental powers and sparkling wit. When he was in his eighth year she placed him under the instructions of Richard Keene, of Augusta, Ky., a learned through eccentric Irishman and a graduate of Trinity College, Dublin. At the age of fourteen young Doniphan was entered as a student of Augusts College, where he was graduated at the early age of eighteen with especial distinction in classics. While in that institution he had the benefit of the training of several able instructors particularly Drs. Bascom and Durbin.

Upon leaving college, Mr Doniphan devoted himself for nearly a year to the systematic study of history and general literature. He then began the study OF LAW IN THE OFFICE OF Hon. Martin P. Marshal, of Kentucky, one of the most eminent jurist of the Marshall family, and after spending two years with that gentleman, he was licensed to practice by the Supreme Court of Ohio. In Mar he came to Missouri and was licensed to practice by the Supreme Court at Fayette in the succeeding month. On the 19th of April 1830, he settled in Lexington, Mo., and commenced his long, successful and brilliant forensic career.
………
In 1833 Mr Doniphan moved to Liberty, Missouri which he made his home for the succeeding thirty yearsMr Doniphan to assist in raising troops for volunteer service in the Western counties of the state, and he acceded to the request. The enthusiasm of the people was high, and in a week or so the companies of men which upon organization at Fort Leavenworth formed the famous First Regiment Missouri Cavalry had volunteered……….
In Jun of 1846, the regiment began its long march to Santa Fe, Chihuahua, Monterey and the Gulf, a distance of thirty six hundred miles. The march is known in history as Doniphan’s Expedition………..
On December 1837, Col Doniphan was married to Miss Elizabeth Jane, daughter of late John THORNTON of Clay County, Missouri. She was a woman of much strength of character, of refined and gentle manner and elegant literary tastes. She was acute in her perceptions and highly religious in feelings. The domestic life of herself and husband was characterized by the utmost harmony. Two children, both sons, were born to them, but they died in youth. In 1863, and then returned to Western Missouri. He lost his estimable wife in 1873, after which time he lived in retirement, devoting himself entirely to the amusements of reading, correspondence and converse with his friends.
…………
He died in Richmond, Mo., August 8, 1887, and was buried in the new cemetery at Liberty, Mo., on the 12th of the same month. A lofty monument marks his resting-place.

Before 1686/7 Edward MOUNTJOY married Elizabeth widow of Major Andrew Monroe of Monroe Creek County. He married secondly c1710 Mary CROSBY (16??-1756), daughter of George CROSBY of Stafford. Edward and Mary had one son, Captain William MOUNTJOY (1711-1777), WHO RESIED AT Locust Hill and became very involved in the affairs of Stafford County.

Edward’s will dated September 6, 1712, ordered that a certain tract of land on Potomac Creek be sold and appointed Mary his executrix. That land, 246 acres of the original 940 acres grant was sold in June 1723 to John Lomax of Essex County for L40, the money being used to pay Edward’s debts. Left with Edward’s infant son, Mary married secondly Peter Mauzy, by whom she had issue. Like Edward, Peter died soon after his marriage, leaving Mary with several small children. Mary married thirdly c1720 the Reverend Joseph Waugh (d.1727) of Belle Plain. His first wife had been Rachel Gowry, daughter of John Gowry.

Captain William Mountjoy resided at Locust Hill and was a considerable land hold in Stafford and adjoining counties. He married Phillis Reilly (1717-1771), daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth Reilly of St. Paul’s Parish. They had nine children who lived long enough to be included in their fathere other children received land in Stafford and Fauquier Counties.
Several of the Captain’s children appear in Stafford County records, including Thomas (b.1740) who acted as Presiding Justice in Stafford. He was still living in 1806, when a deposition given by him listed his age at sixty six.

The first is part of a 246+ acres granted to Edward Mountjoy 11 Aug 1704 and by his widow who married Joseph Waugh sold jointly to Colonel Lomax who sold in 1736 to Bristol Iron Mine Company and Colonel John Champe by a power from said company sold to Doniphan. Part was taken by Mr. Allen’s Elder Patent leaving 139 acres. The other tract of 38 acres was sold by Lomax in 1736 to said company and sold by Champe to Doniphan; on North side of Potomac Run; adj. Thomas Brooks, Allen, Mountjoy, Carter, Withers. Surveyed by Jno. Mauzy.

 

In November 1838, Doniphan refused to carry out an illegal order to shoot Mormon leader Joseph Smith Jr. and others on the Public Square of Far West, Missouri. This marker commemorates Doniphan’s home site during that period, while he served as a lawyer to Mormon leaders. His home was located on the south side of the small park (next to the alley) across the street from the First Presbyterian Church. The First Pesbyterian Church of Liberty owns the park where this new marker stands. In relation to another familar landmark- it is on the east side of the street, one half block southeast of the Liberty Jail Visitors’ Center. Students and scholars of Mormon History are excited about this new Doniphan marker. MMFF Secretary Bill Curtis coordinated arrangements with First Liberty Presbyterian Church, Liberty, Missouri, making this commemoration possible. The featured speaker was Juarenne Hester of Liberty, Missouri, who is a champion of Alexander Doniphan and first suggested such a commemoration to Bill Curtis. A matching marker was erected last year by the First Presbyterian Church directly across the street commemorating the Doniphan Hubbell House, Doniphan’s Mexican War era home. The marker text reads: Alexander W. Doniphan 1808-1887 Lawyer, Statesman and Military Leader While living on this site in the 1830’s, Alexander Doniphan championed the Constitituional rights of an oppressed people to ensure their religious freedom. He helped create Caldwell County as a refuge for the Mormons in 1836 and refused to carry out an illegal order by his superior officer to execute Joseph Smith and other Mormon leaders in 1838. Doniphan became highly respected for his leadership and integrity. This marker sponsored by Missouri Mormon Frontier Foundation, a non-sectarian, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of Mormon history and marking of Mormon related historical sites in Missouri.

ALEXANDER DONIPHAN & MARY WAUGH

3a. Alexander DONIPHAN was born about 1716 of Stafford County, Virginia.
Alexander married Mary WAUGH on 17 June 1740 Overwharton Parish, Stafford
County, Virginia. Alexander DONIPHAN died between 29 Mar 1766 in King
George County, Virginia.

Alexander Doniphan died in Stafford County in 1768 his will being recorded now in the now
missing Will Book N page 37. We are fortunate to have a copy preserved in the suite paper
Doniphan vs Doniphan which pended before the Superior Court of Chancery for the
Fredericksburg District.

Mary WAUGH was the daughter of Joseph WAUGH and Mary CROSBY of
Stafford County, Virginia. Mary was born 1721 on the Potomac Creek, Stafford
County, Virginia. Mary died about 1756 in Stafford County, Virginia. (See Waugh
Family Section)

Tyler’s Quarterly Magazine Volume 26 1944-1945 page 280.

(1) Alexander Doniphan was born previous to 1716, his grand father Captain Alexander Doniphan so indicating in his will. Captain Doniphan bequeathed two tract of land to his son Mott and his second son that shall be borne the reversionary interest in the said land, thus indicating Mott already had one son but it was not the grand fathers intention that he should inherit any of the land which he bequeather his father. The only reason the compiler can ascribe to this action is that Captain Doniphan knew his son Mott had married an heiress and that the eldest son of this couple would inherit a goodly land estate from his mother and it was his desire to provide for the second son of Mott although he had not yet been born. Perhaps Captain Alexander Doniphan used this same reasoning when he failed to bequeath his son Robert any land, being aware he was the eldest son and heir of Margaret Mott Doniphan he was already entitled to a vast acreage; he therefore left the land in which he had a fee simple estate to his other children.

Alexander Doniphan was raised in Overwharton Parish, Stafford County, where he married 17 Jun 1740 Mary Waugh daughter of Joseph Waugh and Mary (Crosby) Waugh. From her father she inherited 1176 acres on Potomac Creek, while her husband was possessed of a considerable landed estate by inheritance and purchase in the counties of Stafford and King George.

(1) Will of Henry Thompson. In this will, Henry Thompson leaves legacies to many people, including “John Simpson in Aquia Creek Scotsman.” Although some researchers assume that Henry Thompson and John Simpson were related, there is nothing in the records to indicate this. The claim that the Scotsman’s wife was a daughter of Henry Thompson is totally unsubstantiated and appears to be based solely upon the mention of John Simpson and his three eldest sons in Henry Thompson’s will. However, Thompson left property and possessions to many others in his will, did not mention any relationships, and no relationship to any of the legatees has been found in the records. PLEASE NOTE: the 300 acres left to John the Scot’s sons was NOT on Aquia Creek but located on Powell’s Run in the area that later became Prince William Co., VA. Thompson’s will reads as follows:

CHAPTER 14

REV JOHN WAUGH FAMILY OF STAFFORD COUNTY, VIRGINIA

Reverend John WAUGH of early Virginia was a controversial Gentleman

John WAUGH settled in Stafford County, Virginia soon after it became a county in 1662. Reverend WAUGH was the first minister in Overwharton Parish, Stafford County, Virginia. Apparently he served in this area from approximately 1665 to 1700, about thirty five years.

“Waugh, Rev. John was a minister of the Church of England in a parish in Stafford County, Virginia where he was living as early as 1666. During the Reign of James II, Virginia like England was much agitated with rumors of popish plots, and John WAUGH greatly inflamed the people by his harangues against the Catholics. In 1669 he was elected to the general assembly, but declared ineligible as minister. He died in 1706, leaving a wife Christian, and sons Joseph, John, Alexander and David.”
Virginia Biography by Hayden.

“John Waugh…He came from the north of England and was a man of education and parts, but a natural agitator. He had been suspended at least once from his ministerial function for violating the law and was constantly quarreling with his neighbors and the local authorities, but he seems to have had a strong hold on the majority of his parishioners. His cloth did not deter him from active participation in politics… In religion, as might be expected he was what was called at the time “of enthusiastic principles”meaning evangelicanism mingled with Puritanism, and he courted popularity.”
Landmarks of Old Prince William Harrison

“WAUGH , John. Born in the North of England. Became a minister of Potomac Parish in Stafford County, 1667 or before, and was probably its first minister… After Potomac was divided… into Overwharton and Choatank…. He continued in charge of both until about 1700. Died about 1706. a man of education and political influence, and had a very turbulent career, suspended by the Governor for six months in 1675 for marrying a couple with out banns or license, and got into trouble about 1691 for the same cause. Arrested and imprisoned for helping to arouse a popular tumult at the time of the expulsion of King James II from England in 1688.” The Colonial Church of Virginia by Goodwin:

Parson John Waugh and the Catholic Rebellion is discussed by Jerrilyn Eby in her excellent Book entitled, “They Called Stafford Home” page 199. To learn more about our colorful ancestor I would refer the reader to this excellent publication see page 199.

Page 205. Despite his pleas to the governor in 1674 claiming poverty, Waugh managed to amass a great deal of land, including the first lot to be sold in the new town of Marlborough. On May 9, 1700, shortly before his last marriage, he conveyed 2, 246 acres of land to his sons, Joseph and John. Parson Waugh died without a will, and his 6,350 acres along with some other land holdings went to his eldest son Joseph. Following his father’s death, Joseph divided the 6,350 acre estate into five tracts of approximately 1,200 acres and gave each of his brother, John, Alexander, and David an equal one-fifth part of it. The mansion house tract, part of the 6,350 acres, was equally divided between brothers Joseph and John the latter inheriting two-fifths of his father’s estate. The tract is in present-day king George County and remains known as Waugh Point
They Called Stafford Home – The Development of Stafford County, Virginia 1600 until 1865, by Jerrilynn Eby, published by Heritage Books, Inc. 1997.

John WAUGH is listed showing his wife as being Elizabeth WAUGH FROM 1674 TO 1691. Elizabeth died before 1700. We know that his third wife was named Christian.

was living in 1691. Richard is mentioned in a Record of Henry THOMPSON when he mentions
the children of John WAUGH as being Richard, Alexander and Ann WAUGH. As he is not
mentioned again, it may be possible that he died before his father John who died in 1706

DESCENDANTS OF JOHN WAUGH

George Crosby of Stafford County, Virginia. She died 14 Dec 1756 in Stafford
County, Virginia

They Called Stafford Home, Jerrilyn Eby page 221
In 1945 George H. S. King, noted genealogist, located the Locust Hill cemetery
seven-tenths of a mile southeast of the railroad under pass at Brooke Station. That
year he wrote, “By a large lone cedar in the cornfield of Mrs Robinson near
Brooke Station is the crumbling headstone of Mary Waugh.” King notes that a
Mountjoy descendant moved the headstone of Captain William Mountjoy and his
wife Phyllis, from this same location to St. John’s Episcopal Church of King
George Court House in order to preserve it. The descendants apparently didn’t
realize that the field had once been part of the Mountjoy estate, Locust Hill, or that
Mary (Crosby, Mountjoy, Mauzy) Waugh was actually the mother of Captain
William Mountjoy, or he might have moved her stone as well. Captain Mountjoy’s
stone reads:
To the memory of
Capt William Mountjoy
Was born the 17 day of April 1711
And died the 27 of Sept 1777 his
Age 66 years
Phillis Mountjoy wife
of William Mountjoy

Lee’s death, the property reverted to his next of kin, maternal and paternal
relatives. An official surveyor and representatives from both families met at
Belle Plain in 1802 to determine a division of the property. After much
haggling a settlement was reached, each side receiving one-half of the land

JAMES, Bartley married WAUGH, Eliz, Mrs. on 20 Dec 1763 in Lancaster Co., VA

Giles Travers, son of Raleigh/Rawleigh Travers was born ca 1662 possibly in Lancaster, VA. He married ca 1687 Ann Waugh and they had issue: Elizabeth, Ann and Million. Giles Travers died in Stafford, VA in 1717.
The Reverend John Waugh was born ca 1630 in Scattergate, England. He married ca 1655 Elizabeth Unknown. Rev.Waugh and Elizabeth had the following children: Ann, Joseph, John, Elizabeth, Alexander, Richard and David. The Reverend Waugh was a minister in Overwharton parish in Stafford, VA. He lived for a time in Northumberland, VA. Rev.Waugh died in Stafford, VA in 1706.
John Cave was born ca 1640 in England, the son of Samuel Cave and Rachel Kellogg. He was an importer of fine wines. He owned land in Stafford County. He married 1) Unknown Andrews, daughter of George Andrews and had issue: John (this John died in 1749 without issue) and David. He married 2) Elizabeth Travers and had known issue: Mary. It is also possible that John Cave was the father of William Cave who died in 1742 of Stafford County as David released the land which reverted to him upon his brother John’s death to Keene Withers who was married to this William Cave’s daughter as this William Cave had died prior to 1748. In 1707 John Cave of King and Queen County, a carpenter, purchased from Sampson Darrell of Gloucester Co. 300 acres in Stafford County on the south side of Potomack Creek and bordering the lands of John Gorvey, Thomas Gregg, William Waugh, and Giles Travers. John Cave along with John Echols paid for the transportation of many others to America. In 1721 the will of John Cave was proven at Stafford. The will was written in 1714 and devised 200 acres of land to his son John Cave but was reverted to David Cave and his wife Sarah in Orange County, VA. John Cave lived in Overwharton Parish.Other Cave’s in Stafford, Spotsylvania and later Orange and Culpepper Counties who may have been sons of John Cave were: Benjamin, Robert, Thomas and Joseph. David, Benjamin and Robert were closely associated with one another in the public records between 1720 and 1750 and gave sons these names. David named sons: David, Benjamin and Robert. Benjamin named sons: Benjamin, John, William and David. Robert named sons: Robert, John and William. A chart for the family assembled by English genealogist, Tyrell, shows Benjamin as the immigrant of Rev.William Cave of Windsor, Chaplain to Charles II, and his wife Anna Stonehouse. Rev. William Cave’s will was cited in support. The will mentions daughters, a grandson, a deceased son Ralph, but no mention of Benjamin nor any living son. Anna Stonehouse Cave died in 1691. Benjamin’s depositon in 1758 states his birth in 1703. John Cave (ca 1640-1720) may not have been the immigrant. There were earlier Cave’s who could have been a prior generation.

WAUGH , John. Born in the North of England. Became a minister of Potomac Parish in Stafford County, 1667 or before, and was probably its first minister… After Potomac was divided… into Overwharton and Choatank…. He continued in charge of both until about 1700. Died about 1706. a man of education and political influence, and had a very turbulent career, suspended by the Governor for six months in 1675 for marrying a couple with out banns or license, and got into trouble about 1691 for the same cause.

I have a connection to the 1691 marriage. The marriage was recorded in 1692 in Westmoreland County. From Westmoreland records abstracted by Mr. Beverley Fleet “Mr. John Waugh married Benj. Blanchflower and Mrs. Temperance Crabb without Lycence or Banes.” Temperance Gerrard Hutt Crabb Blanchflower was my many greats grandmother. My many greats grandfather was Temperance’s second husband John Crabb. Oh, speaking of the Gerrard family, in the records for Capt. Alexander Doniphan (the immigrant) is mention of a power of attorney from Thomas Yeabsley to Doniphan to collect debts due Yeabsley by Robert Slye of Maryland. Robert Slye was married to Temperance’s sister Susanna. The early record books of Westmoreland are filled with the scandals of the Gerrard family–and the language in those records It’s enough to make me blush. But it is great fun reading them.

Virginia Families.
1. Blagrave of James City and Stafford Counties.
The Blagrave family is of some interest because of two records: (1) William Ballard, son of Thomas Ballard of James City witnessing a deed dated 1686 that is recorded in the records of Stafford county, Virginia; and (2) Henry Blagrave being named in 1719 as a legatee in the will of Ballard, son of Thomas Ballard of York county (William’s brother). The connection to Mssrs Gregg and Gowry in Stafford suggests a connection between William Ballard and the Thomas Ballard who left a will in Stafford county in 1730 (of which only a fragment survives; see page 275). This Thomas appears to have died without issue, but devised some of his Virginia property to a devisee in England on the condition that he come to America to claim it, providing yet another clue to the origin of the family in England. It is also interesting to chart the movement of the family from the Tidewater into the Piedmont and on to Kentucky and South Carolina.
2. Bland of Stafford County.
The Bland family that settled in Northern Virginia has been extensively researched by Charles Bland, author of Vision of Unity: The Bland Family in England and America (1982), a history of the Blands in Virginia. He has been able to distinguish the Northern Virginia Blands from the family that settled along the James River in Virginia. The Northern Virginia branch is the most likely source of the first Bland Ballard, given the consistent naming patterns used in both families; you will note that nearly all of the male names appear among Bland Ballard’s descendants, particularly George, James, and Benjamin. Unfortunately, the name of a likely daughter who married William Ballard has not been confirmed; most likely it was a daughter of George Bland, No. 2, below, for her to be of sufficient age to have children in 1700 (the traditional birth year of Bland Ballard). Researching these lines is extremely difficult due to the loss of records in King and Queen county, Caroline county, and Prince William county.
3. Gregg of Stafford County.
Associates of Thomas Ballard of Stafford county.
4.Head of Orange County.
Benjamin Head was associated with Bland Ballard of Spotsylvania County.
5. Shiflett of Albemarle County.
The Shilflett family that settled in Albemarle county is included here as an allied family, for they traveled the same route from Essex and Caroline (formed 1728 from Essex, King & Queen, and King William counties) into Orange and Albemarle counties as the Ballards that came from that part of Virginia. They also share, with maddening frequency and without explanation, the frequent and repeated use of the name “Bland,” suggesting that they are most likely cousins sharing a common Bland ancestor.

William Ballard of James City, then Charles City County
Very little is known of William Ballard, the youngest son of Thomas Ballard of James City county. We assume that he was born after 1668, given the bequest made to all of the children of Thomas Ballard except William by Robert Baldrey in his will dated 1 May 1668  and recorded 30 December 1676 in York county.1 He is probably the William Ballard who witnessed a deed on 11 October 1686 between family friend Henry Blagrave of New Kent county and John Gowry of Stafford Parish, Stafford county, for the right to 600 acres in Stafford granted by patent to Capt. David Mansell “my late grandfather,” being a patent dated 6 October 1654. The language of the acknowledgment indicates that it was executed in New Kent county.2  Please note that a person 14 years old or older could serve as a witness in Colonial Virginia. He figured in the York records shortly after his father’s death, in a suit he brought against James Harrison, William Ballard being then described as “assignee of Benj: Goodrich, Attorney of Alice Ballard, Exorx Coll: Tho. Ballard, dec’ed”: this suit, begun at a court held 24 September 1691, was dismissed at a court held 24 November 1691, the defendant making oath the debt had been paid through Jerome Ham.3 Most significantly, two records place him as residing in James City County. A William Ballard appears in a Militia list for James City county dated 27 March 1702 preserved at the Public Record Office at London, England.4 And he is probably the William Ballard who in 1704 had 300 acres in James City York county, as shown in the Quit Rent Roll of that year.5 Since he resided in James City county, then sadly the bulk of his public life likely took place in what are now known as “burned” counties whose records have been destroyed, such as James City and Charles City, among regrettably many others. We note that his association with Benjamin Goodrich continues, for on 24 April 1708, William Ballard witnessed a deed recorded in Essex county between Benjamin Goodrich of James City county, Gent. to Wm. Aylett6 of St. John’s Parish, King William Co., Gent., for £10 Sterling, “all his interest in a tract granted to Jos. Goodrich & ‘one Price & Ball’ [probably “Jno Price & Batt”] by patent, in Essex Co.”7  William Aylett is known to have been a cousin by marriage, having married Sibella Caynehoe (1628-1674), the widow of Matthew Hubbard whose second husband was Jerome Ham. There is also mention of a William Ballard in a deed recorded among the records of Charles City County, suggesting he had acquired land there as an investment sometime after 1667 (the date the property was acquired by Charles Roan, who took a patent for it that year8), and a William Ballard who is named in a deed that recites the chain of title. The transaction between Archibald Blair and Benjamin Willard is dated 31 December 1728 and recorded in Charles City county:
Deed dated 31 December 1728 from Archibald Blair to Benjamin Willard, for £130, 200 acres on Kittawan Creek in Weynoke Parish, bounded by land now or late of Edward Turner & William Arronger, being a moiety of 400 acres purchased by Thomas Gregory & William Ballard of Charles Roan, Gent., & divided by line running from mouth of Mapscoe Creek. Witnesses: Jno. Edloe, Richd. Grinsell. Recorded 1 January 1728.9
Since one had to be at least 21 years of age to purchase land, that transaction was probably after 1695, since no mention of an order to record the deed appears in the extant Order Books.  The transaction was certainly prior to 1724, which is the date the Inventory of Thomas Gregory was recorded in the Charles City County records. The reader should be well acquainted with the will of Elizabeth Ballard (now included in our page on William Ballard of Charles City County) that was recorded among the records of Charles City county in 1726. Her associations (Henry Soane, the Duke family, etc.) indicate that she was a member of one of the more illustrious families of the county, and the uncanny similarity of the forenames of her children named in the will: Thomas, Francis, Rebecca, Anna, John, Elizabeth, William, Martha — suggests close kinship with Thomas Ballard of James City county and his son, Thomas of York county. This compiler has searched the extant records of Charles City county and found no mention of any Ballards prior to 1725.

William Ballard of Charles City County, Virginia (c.1668-c.1725).
Very little is known of William Ballard, the youngest son of Thomas Ballard of James City county. We assume that he was born after 1668, given the bequest made to all of the children of Thomas Ballard except William by Robert Baldrey in his will dated 1 May 1668  and recorded 30 December 1676 in York county.1
He is probably the William Ballard who witnessed a deed on 11 October 1686 between family friend Henry Blagrave of New Kent county and John Gowry of Stafford Parish, Stafford county, for the right to 600 acres in Stafford granted by patent to Capt. David Mansell “my late grandfather,” being a patent dated 6 October 1654. The language of the acknowledgment indicates that it was executed in New Kent county.2 Please note that a person 14 years old or older could serve as a witness in Colonial Virginia.
He figured in the York records shortly after his father’s death, in a suit he brought against James Harrison, William Ballard being then described as “assignee of Benj: Goodrich, Attorney of Alice Ballard, Exorx Coll: Tho. Ballard, dec’ed”: this suit, begun at a court held 24 September 1691, was dismissed at a court held 24 November 1691, the defendant making oath the debt had been paid through Jerome Ham.3
Most significantly, two records place him as residing in James City County. A William Ballard appears in a Militia list for James City county dated 27 March 1702 preserved at the Public Record Office at London, England.4 And he is probably the William Ballard who in 1704 had 300 acres in James City York county, as shown in the Quit Rent Roll of that year.5
Since he appears to have resided in James City county, then sadly the bulk of his public life likely took place in what are now known as “burned” counties whose records have been destroyed, such as James City, among regrettably many others.
We note that his association with Benjamin Goodrich continues, for on 24 April 1708, William Ballard witnessed a deed recorded in Essex county between Benjamin Goodrich of James City county, Gent. to Wm. Aylett6 of St. John’s Parish, King William Co., Gent., for £10 Sterling, “all his interest in a tract granted to Jos. Goodrich & ‘one Price & Ball’ [probably “Jno Price & Batt”] by patent, in Essex Co.”7  William Aylett is known to have been a cousin by marriage, having married Sibella Caynehoe (1628-1674), the widow of Matthew Hubbard whose second husband was Jerome Ham.
There is also mention of a William Ballard in a deed recorded among the records of Charles City County, suggesting he had acquired land there as an investment sometime after 1667 (the date the property was acquired by Charles Roan, who took a patent for it that year8), and a William Ballard who is named in a deed that recites the chain of title. The transaction between Archibald Blair and Benjamin Willard is dated 31 December 1728 and recorded in Charles City county:
Deed dated 31 December 1728 from Archibald Blair to Benjamin Willard, for £130, 200 acres on Kittawan Creek in Weynoke Parish, bounded by land now or late of Edward Turner & William Arronger, being a moiety of 400 acres purchased by Thomas Gregory & William Ballard of Charles Roan, Gent., & divided by line running from mouth of Mapscoe Creek. Witnesses: Jno. Edloe, Richd. Grinsell. Recorded 1 January 1728.9
Since one had to be at least 21 years of age to purchase land, that transaction was probably after 1695, since no mention of an order to record the deed appears in the extant Order Books.
The reader should be well acquainted with the will of Elizabeth Ballard that appears among the records of Charles City county in 1726. Her associations (Henry Soane, the Duke family, etc.) indicate that she was a member of one of the more illustrious families of the county, and the uncanny similarity of the forenames of her children named in the will: Thomas, Francis, Rebecca, Anna, John, Elizabeth, William, Martha — suggests close kinship with Thomas Ballard of James City county and his son, Thomas of York county.
Will of Elizabeth Ballard of Westover Parish, Charles City County, dated 22 May 1726, recorded 2 November 1726.  Charles City Co. Va. Wills & Deeds, 1725-1731, p. 131.
To daughter Martha Ballard, when of age or married, negro girl Ancy, now in the possession of my brother-in-law Henry Soane; and my daughter is to continue with said Henry and my sister Sarah Soane until 18.
If Martha dies, negro to be sold and money divided between my children: Thomas Ballard, Francis Ballard, Rebecca Ballard, Anna Talman, John Ballard, Elizabeth Firth and William Ballard.
To my son-in-law William Firth, one gray horse and to have the obligation to pay £5 I owe Benjamin Dormous on a judgment in James City Court obtained against me.
Executor: Brother-in-law Henry Soane. Witnesses: Henry Soane, Simon Stubblefield, Mich’a Sherman. Presented by Henry Soane, proved by other witnesses. Inventory, p. 152. Value £28.18.8 ½, by court order dated November 1726; appraised by John Lide, Wm. Parrish, Charles Christian & Jeffry Murrell, recorded 1 February 1726; presented by Capt. Henry Soane.
An interesting avenue to explore is this Elizabeth’s relationship with her executor, Captain Henry Soane, who is identified as her brother-in-law. One online genealogy identifies a Henry Soane, II who was born 1675 and died 1739 in Charles City county.  His wife’s name is not known, and they had three children: Elizabeth (born 1704), Susanna and Henry. A secondary source we have not yet had an opportunity to verify (The Duke Family, by Evelyn Duke Brandenberger (self-published, 1979) claims Henry Soane had married Sarah Hubard/Hubbard, which would make our testator a member of the Hubbard family, likely close relations of the Katherine Hubbard that married Thomas Ballard, Jr.  This assumption may be in error, however; on Henry Soane’s demise in 1750, administration of his estate was granted to Rebecca Hubbard Soane, with John Edloe as security.  Rebecca Hubbard may have been a second wife.  Charles City Co. Va. Order Book 1737-1751, p. 593.
A side note: A witnesses to the will (Michael Sherman) and one of the appraisers (John Lide) had married sisters — Michael Sherman was the husband of Susanna Duke, and John Lide was the husband of Sarah Duke.  We know this from the will of Elizabeth Duke, dated 20 April 1729 and recorded the “1st Wednesday in December 1729.”  Charles City Co. Va. Wills & Deeds, p. 263.
This compiler has searched the extant records of Charles City county (dating from 1655 to 1696) and found no mention of any Ballards prior to 1725, which we believe is because the family did not live there until a boundary adjustment between James City county and Charles City county when a part of James City was added to Charles City in 1721. William Waller Hening lists the following legislation in his Statutes at Large:10
An Act for enlarging Charles City County; and for consolidating those parts of the Parishes of Westover and Weynoake, on the North side James River, and that part of Wallingford Parish, on the Westside Chicohominy River.
An Act to divide those parts of the Parishes of Westover and Weynoake, which lie on the South side James River, from those parts of the said Parishes which  lie on the North side the said River; and for uniting Westover and Weynoake Parishes; on the South side James River, to Martin Brandon Parish, in the County of Prince George; and for erecting a Chapel in Bristol Parish, in the said County.
Noted antiquary Lyon G. Tyler put it this way: “It took in the portion of Wallingford Parish west of the Chickahominy River (the Sandy Point region previously in James City County”). Morgan Poitiaux Robinson, Virginia Counties: Those Resulting from Virginia Legislation (Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Company, 1992) p. 78 (a reprint of the Bulletin of the Virginia State Library, Volume 9 (January, April and July 1916).
Wallingford Parish existed from 1643 to 1721. Acts in 1643 increased the area of Wallingford Parish to include all of James City County west of the Chickahominy, as well as considerable territory east of it. According to Charles Francis Cocke in Parish Lines: Diocese of Southern Virginia (Richmond: Library of Virginia, 1964, p. 61), David Jones’ Creek, now Kennon’s Creek in Charles City county, was the western boundary of James City county. With the Act of 1720, the following year the boundary between Charles City and James City counties became the Chickahominy river.
It is clear from the Quit Rent Roll of 1704 that other families associated with the Ballards in Charles City in the 1720s appear in that list with property in James City county, namely:
Henry Soane, 750 acres
Henry Duke, Jr. 1,000 acres
Henry Duke, Esq. 2,986 acres
Benja Goodrich, 1,650 acres
See Louis des Cognets, Jr, English Duplicates of Lost Virginia Records (Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Company, Inc., 1958) pp. 172-77.
It appears that all of their property likely fell into Charles City County with the boundary adjustment with James City County in 1721.

Blagrave of James City & Stafford Counties.
The Blagrave family is of some interest because of two records: (1) William Ballard, son of Thomas Ballard of James City witnessing a deed dated 1686 that is recorded in the records of Stafford county, Virginia; and (2) Henry Blagrave being named in 1719 as a legatee in the will of Matthew Ballard, son of Thomas Ballard of York county (William’s brother).  The connection to Mssrs Gregg and Gowry in Stafford suggests a connection between William Ballard and the Thomas Ballard who left a will in Stafford county in 1730 (of which only a fragment survives).  This Thomas appears to have died without issue, but devised some of his Virginia property to a devisee in England on the condition that he come to America to claim it, providing yet another clue to the origin of the family in England.  It is also interesting to chart the movement of the family from the Tidewater into the Piedmont and on to Kentucky and South Carolina.
HENRY BLAGRAVE I (HENRY2 BLAGROVE, HARRY1) was born 1633 in Chievely, Berkshire, England, and died Bef. 13 Oct 1686. He married (1) ANN WHITAKER? Bef. 22 Jan 1653/54 in Warwick Co., VA?. He married (2) MARY MANSELL Aft. 1654, daughter of DAVID MANSELL. She was born in Virginia, and died Aft. Oct 1686.
Notes for HENRY BLAGRAVE I:

Is This the Father of Bland Ballard of Spotsylvania County?
2 October 2015 Stephen Ballard
We received an intriguing comment the other day about the Ballards who settled in Stafford , Richmond, Essex and other nearby counties in Virginia.  We’ve never been satisfied with our work there (there’s so much more to study), and fully intended to re-visit the records in that part of the Commonwealth, particularly the research as it relates to what we consider the “weakest link” in most genealogies that trace their lineage from that union — the assumption that the William Ballard who was married to Philadelphia _________ was a son of Thomas Ballard of James City County, which we believe to be in error.
The note below makes a credible case that the father of Bland Ballard of Spotslylvania County (and Thomas and John of Albemarle and Richard of Bedford County) is a Thomas Ballard who settled in Stafford County with connections to Maryland, and that Bland’s grandfather was the Thomas Ballard who built the house at Marlborough, and that his son, Thomas, married Mary, the widow of James Mann, and that Mary was the daughter of a Margaret Bland who settled in Maryland c. 1670.
This is a great article on Thomas Ballard. Thank you for writing it. I think I can add to it. If I’m not mistaken DNA testing shows the Ballards of York Co. Va. and Ballards of Stafford Co. Va. not kin.
According to Maryland immigration records by Skordas a number of Ballards, Elzeys, Blands and Manns came to MD in 1670’s and many crossed into VA. after end of Bacon’s Rebellion. A Thomas Ballard came to MD in 1676. No further record. Then a Thomas Ballard, “Junr.” and a William Ballard appear in Stafford Co. VA. by 1682 according to Sparacio’s abstracts. Research there has been problematic due to record destruction during Civil War. Plus the Overwharton Parish lost its founding records.
Some Stafford colonial record books somehow survived the Yankee sack on the courthouse. Thomas Ballard and William Ballard built the small house at Marlborough according to “The Cultural History of Marlborough, Virginia”, by Watkins. The Ballards who later migrated to nearby Richmond Co. VA. and Essex Co. VA. seem to come from this original Thomas & William.
I think there were two Thomas Ballards.
The later one, son of either Thomas or William, I think was born circa 1684. This younger Thomas Ballard was the second husband of the widow Mary Mann. I will give more on her in the following. This Thomas Ballard stated in the Rich. Co. court order book that he was “Thomas Ballard of Stafford County” in 1707. He was involved in much litigation in Essex Co. His second wife was a Sarah and they later moved to Spotsylvania Co. VA. The elder Thomas Ballard, it would seem, stayed in Stafford Co. His apparent sons had moved to adjacent counties. He bequeathed the little house to his godson David Waugh and Waugh later conveyed it to Mason, as you well-know.
Thomas Ballard, Sr. moved to the part of Stafford Co. on Neabsco Creek that is today Prince William Co. According to the tax list he died there at Neabsco about 1722. This area bordered Spotsylvania Co. so kin were never that far away. The Thomas Ballard who married Mary I think is son of Thomas who moved to Neabsco Creek. In 1705 Thomas Ballard, Mary Ballard, Jos. Waugh and Thomas Elzey and others were at the house of James Mann, deceased, to appraise his estate in Stafford Co. Also there was a John Gowry.
That Mary’s maiden name was Elzey seems logical but I have another suggestion. Thomas Ballard and Mary named their first son Bland Ballard. Bland later owned land in Spotsylvania Co. VA. I will show an indirect connection to Blands who lived nearby. Let me summarize what I believe is Mary’s origin.
In 1670 a Margaret Bland came to MD. Then by 1674 an Ursulah Bland came to MD. James Mann also owned land in MD before moving over the river to VA. James Mann was born 1649 according to a deposition. His first wife was a daughter of Henry Thompson who left a will in 1691 in Stafford Co. VA. He married second Mary. James Mann was a judge in Stafford Co. Bear with me as I will try to tie all of this chaos together. James Mann also served on a jury with Theodorick Bland in Stafford Co.
James Mann had only two known children by Mary. The girls named in his will in 1705 were Margaret and Ursulah. When Mary later married Thomas Ballard they named their first son Bland Ballard. James Mann also owned land on Neabsco Creek, coincidentally the same place where Thomas Ballard, Sr. would move to after leaving Marlborough. This tract on Neabsco was willed to his daughters Margaret and Ursulah. Their mother Mary appears to have been the illegitimate daughter of Margaret Bland who came to MD in 1670—but that’s another story.
Thomas Ballard, II, moved from Essex Co. to Spotsylvania Co. Thomas Elzey also owned land in Spotsylvania. Thomas Ballard died there by 1755. I descend through Thomas son John Ballard who moved to bordering Albemarle Co. Va. leaving a will there in 1780. John also named a son Bland Ballard.
Let’s look at what we can find about this.  References are as found in various Internet sites such as Rootsweb.
Mann Immigrants to Virginia.
A Henry Man appears in a certificate filed 12 June 1665, who may have been the father of James Mann.  This may be more than a coincidence, because James named a son Henry (which we will get to in due course).
Lancaster County Court 12th of June 1665
– Certificate accordinge to Acte is granted unto William Neasum for the transportacon of Margery, his Wife. Michaell Willington, Richard Stephens, Will: Parr. Susan Furnell, Edward Tisoo, Roger Sidwell, Robert Scissen, Will: Percifull, Jo: Ashford, Hen: Man, Eliz: Killinghorne, Susan Loatt & Philip Sutton into this Country.  Lancaster County Deeds & Wills 1661-1666; Antient Press; Page 345.
We have much more research to do here.
Mann Immigrants in Maryland.
A list of Mann (Man) immigrants can easily be viewed using a database maintained by the Archives of Maryland that lists individual settlers named in the Maryland land patent volumes from 1633 to 1683, and a land warrant volume from 1681 to 1685.  It combines Gust Skordas’ Early Settlers of Maryland and Dr. Carson Gibb’s The New Early Settlers of Maryland (references are omitted; please consult the database).
Edward Man (Mann) of Talbot County, by 1676 transported himself, Jno., his son, & Jno. Shanck, Jno. Sharpe,* Jno. Roberts, Jno. Tossall; & by 1679 transported Luce, his wife, Elizabeth, his daughter and Jane Whitle.
Ann Mann, transported by Capt. Ford, in 1663
Jno. Mann, by 1676 transported by Edward Mann of Talbott County, his father.
John Mann, of Talbot County, transported himself and John, his son, in 1676
*Note that a Sharpe family was an allied family with the Ballards in King George County, Virginia.
James Mann of Stafford County, Virginia.
James Mann was born c. 1649, according to a deposition recorded in Stafford County on 12 February 1691/2.
The Deposition of James Mann aged about forty & two yeares in a Suite depen dinge between Mr, John Waugh Executr. to ye Estate of Henry Thompson deced and Capa. William Downinge in an action of Debt due by Accompt from ye said Capa. Downinge to ye Estate of ye said Henry Thompson who deposeth & saith that not longe before ye death of ye said Henry Thompson yor Depont beinge an his house when hee desired to come to Accompt wth Mr. Downinge and there did appeare to bee due to him upon ye ballance from ye said summe of foure thousand four hundred & eight pounds of Tobacco wch ye said Mr. Downinge did then not disowne and further saith not as Wittness my hande.  Juratt in Curia Febry 12th 1691/2 James Mann
then recorded further the Depont deposeth that Capa. Downinge went away immediately because that Henry Thompson would not allow him for a year accommodacion.  Stafford County Va Deed & Will Book 1689 – 1693; The Antient Press, p. 227a
He is believed to have been the owner of a plantation in Charles County, Maryland (in what is now Prince George’s County, which was organized 1696) called Fortune, acquired by patent dated 2 April 1685, Recorded Liber 22, folio 266.  Additional work is needed to determine if we can find a record of its sale.
If this is the same James Mann, he may have been living in Stafford County by 1690, when on 13 November 1690 he was ordered to pay eighty pounds of Tobacco to John Toney and Eleanor Fletcher for two days attendance for a lawsuit between him and John Mathews.
Court held 13th November 1690. Ordered that James Mann shall make payment of the sum of eighty pounds of Tobacco to John Toney and Eleanor Fletcher the wife of James Fletcher the sum of eighty pounds of Tobacco per peece for their attendance two days at Court in a suit depending between him and John Mathews with costs.  Stafford County, Virginia Order Book, Page 111.
We know James had three children: Henry, Margaret and Ursula.  We know of Henry from the 23 October 1691 will of Henry Thompson leaves a bequest to Henry Man (Mann), son of James Mann.   Margaret and Ursula are named in James’ will dated 11 April 1705; since Henry is not named, presumably Henry pre-deceased him.  Note that the will of Henry Thompson names Thomas Elzey, Snr and Thomas Elzey, Jr, who are close associates of Thomas Ballard of Stafford County.

Elzey is a name closely associated with the Ballard family in Somerset County, Maryland.  That Elzey family is believed to descend from a John Ellzey who left a will dated 23 September 1633 and proven 12 November 1633 in Southampton County, England.  The will names his wife Joan, his sons Arnold, Thomas and the “undutiful and ungracious son Henrie”; his daughter Elizabeth Bennett, and his grandchildren John and Arnold, the sons of his son Arnold.  Curiously, though stated to be underage, his grandson John is named the executor.
Will of John Ellzey, 23 September 1633, Prerogative Court of Canterbury, 12 November 1633, PROB 11/164/568.

Virginia Elzey Family
Given that the Thomas Elzey named in the 1633 will of John Ellzey was married at the time of its writing, and assuming he was at least 21 years of age when married, that would put his birthdate circa 1612 – more than 100 years prior to a patent taken by Thomas Elzey in Essex County on 22 January 1717 for 484 acres “on the South side of a branch of the Mattapony River against the head of the hunting run in St. Mary’s Parish.”  Land Office Patents No. 10, 1710-1719, p. 353 (Reel 10).
We need to research the family in Stafford, Essex, Richmond, King George to develop a fuller picture of Thomas’ activities and relationships.  We have already identified those transactions in Stafford that involve his connection with Thomas Ballard, andthey appear here.  In each instance where Mary Ballard appears in a record, so too does Thomas Elzey/Ellzie, who we assumed was a likely family member.  He very well could be, but he could equally be a relation of Thomas Ballard as well.
Thomas Elzey left a will dated 19 May 1698, proved 11 November 1698, printed inTyler’s Quarterly, Vol. 24, pp. 275-276.  Online sources fail to transcribe it; an abstract found online states that it names his wife Jane, sons Thomas, Jr., William and John; daughter Sarah Elzey.
The will of his son Thomas Elzey Jr. dated 10 March 1719/20, proved 10 May 1721 also appears in Tyler’s Quarterly, Vol. 24, pp. 276-77.  Thomas married Isabelle Thomasin, the daughter of Simon Thomasin and Patience ________.  Thomas’ brother William is said to have married Isabelle’s sister Margaret Thomasin.
Bland Family in Maryland and Virginia.
Connections with members of the Bland family in Maryland are, at best, tenuous – but compelling.  Our correspondent noted that James Mann and Mary Ballard named their daughters Margaret and Ursula, which corresponds with a stunning coincidence – that a Margaret Bland arrived in Maryland circa 1671, and an Ursula Bland arrived in Maryland in 1674.
Henry Bland, transported by 1665.
Susan Bland, transported 1661
Thomas Bland, of Calvert County, Gent., transported himself 1672
Thomas Bland, of Anne Arundel County, rights 1680
Ursulah Bland, transported 1674
Margaret Bland (Blan), transported by 1671.
This observation is compounded by a pedigree of the Bland family found in Familiae Minorum Gentium, Vol. II (London: Harleian Society, 1895).  At the top is the following note:
This fine pedigree is compiled from three sources : —
1. Dale’s pedigree inserted in the ‘ Duc. Leod.,’ p. 208 & 584.
2. A pedigree compiled on the basis of Dale with additions to the year 1759. Supposed to be the work of Richard Bland of Scarborough.
3. The information of Mrs. Anna Bland of Sion Hill, by which I was enabled to continue the English part of the family to the year 1820.
The pedigree begins with “Roger Bland of Orton, co. Westmorland, temp. Hen. VIII” and a few pages in includes the Virginia lines, including “Theodorick, eldest son, b. at Westover in Feb. 1663; d. there in Nov. 1700” who married: “Margaret, relict of …. Man.”  Two sons are listed: John, who in turn had two sons, but both died without issue, and Theodorick, who died young.  The father of the Theodorick born at Westover was also Theodorick, died 1671, and married Anna Bennett; her second husband was St. Leger Codd; they removed to Cecil County, Maryland c. 1688.
Pedigrees like these are, at times, notoriously inaccurate.  Given the sources, it is conceivable that children have been left out.  It’s entirely possible that Theodorick Bland (1663-1700) and Margaret _______ Man had a daughter Mary, who married (1) James Mann (a cousin by marriage?), then (2) Thomas Ballard of Stafford County, but if this theory is correct, the compiler of that pedigree across the sea in England did not know anything about her, or didn’t care enough to include her.  Clearly women gained short shrift; all that they knew of Margaret, for example, was that she was the widow (relict) of ________ Man.
Our correspondent’s  argument that Mary _______ Mann, the widow of James Mann is a Bland descendant, relies upon coincidences of name and place, which unfortunately, at times, is all we have to go by in genealogical research.  Considering all the evidence as a whole, the conclusion is plausible.  With the occurrence of the name Margaret and Ursula among two Bland immigrants who arrived in Maryland in the 1670s, and the fact that James Mann gave his daughters the same names is compelling, though we would be more comfortable with this conclusion if we knew more about these two women and if they were, indeed, related, but to date we have found no documentation whatsoever about them.  Our correspondent mentioned rather coyly that Mary was the illegitimate daughter of Margaret Bland, but gave no indication of the source of this information, which we have not yet been able to discover.
Two compelling wills recently came to our attention that were published in The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, Vol. XLVIII (January 1894) pp. 111-14.
Thomas Bland, died 1674.
Thomas Bland of London, gen’ 26 August 1674, with a codicil dated 30 October, 1674, proved 29 January 1674. To my grand children Jane and Sarah Moyser two hundred and fifty pounds apiece, to be employed at interest or laid out in buying of several annuities for them. To my grand son Joseph Day fifty pounds, to be employed to put him out to some decent calling when he shall attain to fifteen years of age. To my daughter Sarah Day the wife of Joseph Day one annuity or yearly rent charge of ten pounds by the year during her natural life, issuable and payable out of my lands and tenements at Mildenhall in Suffolk. I give to my son in law Joseph Day and Sarah his wife ten pounds apiece to buy them mourning. I appoint my son Richard Bland and my son in law Joseph Day and Sarah his wife to be executors and do appoint them to give all my linen to my grandchildren. In the codicil he speaks of his grandson Joseph Day as ” now deceased.” Dycer, 2.
Thomas Bland, died 1700.
Thomas Bland, of London, merchant, 25 November 1700, proved 13 January 1700. To my sister Sarah Day ten pounds every year during her natural life, she was living with my executors. Ten pounds to Mary Keemish if she shall live to be lawfully married. Ten pounds to Keenish, my sister’s grandson, at one and twenty. Twenty pounds each to Sarah and Margaret Bland, my brother’s two daughters if they live to be lawfully married. My cousin Lawrance Pendrill. To Ann the servant in my cousin Pendrill’s house forty shillings. To my said sister Sarah Day ten pounds for her mourning cloths at my funeral. To every person whose name is inserted on the back of this will one gold ring of the value about ten shillings. To my cousin Sarah Pindrell the wife of Mr. Lawrance Pindrell all my lands, plantations mortgages, houses, tobacco houses &c, in Ann Arundell County in the Province of Maryland, and also (after the payment or other accomplishment of the said contingent legacies) all my negroes, cattle, horses, mares, household stuff, debts in money and tobacco, ready money, plate, goods and chattels whatsoever, either in England or Maryland or elsewhere. And I make my cousin Lawrance Pindrell and Sarah his wife my sole executors. Dyer, 2. July 1652.
It’s clear from the second will that this Thomas is the son of the elder Thomas Bland, who was probably omitted from the will because he was living overseas in Anne Arundel county, Maryland.  It’s likely that the Margaret and Ursula who came to Maryland in the 1670s are of the same line.
Could the Thomas Ballard of Stafford County who married Mary _________ Mann be the son of the Thomas Ballard who arrived in Maryland in 1676?  Yes, though we would prefer to have additional data that would support this conclusion.  We do know from the records that this Thomas associated with the leading families of Stafford County — among them Fitzhugh, Waugh, Gowry, Elzey, which suggests descent from a prominent, well connected family, which points to descent from the Ballards of York county.
Looking at other Ballard lines — namely the Ballards who settled in Albemarle who were closely allied with the Mills and Clopton families — supports that idea if this was indeed the father of Bland Ballard, and then by extension the closeness of the Mills family with the Ballards of York and Albemarle extends to Bland, which would mean that this Thomas Ballard would be more closely allied with other descendants of Thomas Ballard of James City County.  If true, then it suggests that Bland Ballard of Spotsylvania and his brothers really are descendants of Thomas Ballard of James City County, and that Mary, the widow of James Mann, is a descendant of the Blands who settled in Maryland and Stafford county, Virginia.
