I am working on my husband's genealogy, which includes some Brightwells.
The earliest Brightwell I have so far is Reynold Brightwell b. 1735, King William, VA and d. Apr. 1806 In Prince Edward, VA.
He married Drucilla Allmond in 1771 in Louisa, VA.
His son was William Blackwell 1775-1831 in Prince Edward, VA.He married Mary Young in 1800.
Their daughter was Elizabeth Brightwell b. 1805 in Prince
Edward, Va.and died in Buckingham, Va.She married Josiah Shepard in 1826 in Prince Edward, VA.
Does this info correlate with anything that you have?Can you help me trace these Brightwell's any further back?Any help would be greatly appreciated.
