I would like for folk to name the earliest records they know of any Brogdon/ens in America. I'm checking out a hunch here. I don't see many mentions beyond the early 1800s and would bet the family came during the last part of the 1700s. Any ideas on this?
Also, I am betting Brogden was the original spelling and that the Brogdons are primarily an American version of the original British Brogdens.What do you bet our folks came from York or Oxford? Or both? Has anyone searched ship records yet? Did all the other Brogdons and Brogdens have family in the Carolina area or did some of them begin first in Virginia before spreading other places?
