Looking for any info on Henry BLAGRAVE I, b. 1630, England?; m. Mary MANSELL/MANSFIELD (d/o David MANSELL/MANSFIELD) & Ann (--). Children: 1). Mansell BLAGRAVE, b. 1651, Martin's Hundred, York Co., VA. 2) Henry BLAGRAVE II, b. c1655, Martin's Hundred, York Co., VA.
Henry was a physician in York Co., VA in the 1650s.His neighbors included Joseph Croshaw and Timothy GRAVE(S).According to one source, a Thomas GRAVES (b. 1584, Gravesend, England; d. 1639, Accomack, VA) married Katherine CROSHAW, daughter of Joseph CROSHAW; this Thomas GRAVES is believed to be the son of Thomas GRAVES (b. 1556, England) and Joan BLAGROVE (another common spelling for BLAGRAVE).Is Henry BLAGRAVE I connected to this Joan BLAGRAVE, and if so, how?
I'd love to hear from anyone familiar with the BLAGRAVEs of England or of early VA.
