My name is William T. Brightwell part of the Brightwell's from Charlotte, Prince Edward and King William County. I have my grandfather's birth record listing his father as Thomas L. and Sarah Elizabeth (Roberts). As I see it I believe his father was Thomas A. married to Louisa W. Harvey. I have seen on the 1864 map of Charlotte Co. to show T.A. Brightwell living next to the Harvey Family of Charlotte Co. I believe his father to be Charles married to Hopy W. Boatwright. I have seen in 1783 Census where it shows three Brightwell's: Barnett; Charles and William and I believe them to be son's of Reynold Brightwell as listed on a will dated 15 Aug 1804. It does not show the name of Reynold's wife, anyone know it? I am seeking and offering any help to get back to just when our family settled in this country. Does anyone have anything going back past and including Reynold??
