I have read most all of the SPRIGG messages and most of my "brief" Sprigg data pretty well agrees.BUT I do have a question that didn't appear to be answered in any of the Sprigg messages.
We know Thomas SpriggSr. m. 2x ....first to Kathryn [Graves] Roper abt. 1650. [She was dau. of Capt Thomas Graves and a widow of Capt William Roper]. He married second to Eleanor Nuthall [dau of John Nuthall Sr. and Elizabeth [Bacon] Holloway].
Is anyone certain what children were born from which marriage ??
I presently show: 1st mar - Nathaniel, Samuel, Sarah [my ancestor who married about 1677 to John Peerce/Pearce Jr.], John and Thomas Jr...... 2nd mar - Elias, Elizabeth, Mary, Eleanor, Martha and Ann.
On 16 Mar 1700/01, Thomas Sprigg Sr. granted 200 acres of land to ..."eldest and well beloved daughter Sarah Pearce" ....
Capt William Roper d. about 1650/51, Northampton Co, VA.Only one child is known to have been born from his marriage to Katherine Graves:Verlinda Roper - known only thru having been transported into MD [from VA] by her step-father, Thomas Sprigg, about 1656.
I am getting away from my original question..:) .... does anyone have the number of children born by Thomas Sprigg Sr and by which marrige?
