THE FITZHUGH FAMILY.
To what has been said in regard to Colonel William2 Fitzhugh, the Immigrant, in the last number of the Magazine, may be added the following from the British Public Record Office:
"June 14, 1682. Minutes of Board of Trade and Plantations. The addresses of the Assembly and the Governor of Virginia, and several speeches of Mr. Fitzhugh were read, showing the people are extremely desirous of a cessation of planting tobacco."
In a letter dated April 22, 1686, he describes his dwelling house:
"Upon this same land is my own dwelling house, furnished with all accommodations for comfortable and gentle living, with rooms in it, four of the best of them hung [with tapestry], nine of them plentifully furnished with all things necessary and convenient, and all houses for use, furnished with brick chimneys, four good cellars, a dairy, dove cot, stable, barn, henhouse, kitchen and all other conveniencys, and all in a manner new, a large orchard of about 2,500 apple trees, m st grafted, well fenced with a locust fence, which is as durable as most brick walls, a garden a hundred foot square, well paled in, a yard wherein is most of the aforesaid necessary houses pallisadoed in with locus puncheons, which is a good as is if it were walled in, and more lasting than any of our bricks."
Mr. Bruce in his admirable Economic History of Virginia, makes frequent use of the Fitzhugh letters see the index of that work.
Colonel William,2 and Sarah (Tucker) Fitzhugh had surviving issue (named in his will).
9. William;3 10. Henry; 3 11. Thomas; 3 12. George; 13. John.
9. William3 Fitzhugh (William2), of "Eagles Nest," Stafford (now King George County), was born --, and died in the winter of 1713-14. He inherited under his fathers will 18,723 acres of land in Stafford and Westmoreland; was residuary legatee of all lands not bequeathed, and rights to lands in Virginia, Maryland and England; eight negroes; 18 pieces of silver plate; £200 sterling out of his fathers money in England; half the household furniture; "my own and my wifes pictures, the other six pictures of my relations, and the large map in the study" (W.F.s will), half his fathers "study of books," &c. He was appointed clerk of Stafford county, July 18, 1701, and was a member of the House of Burgesses for that county 1700, 1701 and 1702 (Stafford Records). Possibly he was a member in other years. On December 13, 1711, the Lords of Trade and Plantations presented a representation to the Queen, recommending William Fitzhugh, Esq., as a person fully qualified to fill a vacancy in the Council, being a good estate, and being well affected towards her Majestys government (Sainsbury Abstracts). The appointment made on December 19 and Fitzhugh took the oaths in Virginia, October 15, 1712 (Council Journal). His tenure of office was short, for his last appearance in Council was in November 8, 1713, and January 27, 1713-14, there is an entry in the Council Journal that he was dead. Besides the offices named, Wm. Fitzhugh was a justice of Stafford, and high sheriff in 1707. If he made a will it was doubtless recorded in Stafford, but the books of that date have been lost. He married Ann, daughter of Richard Lee, Esq.,2 of Westmoreland county (member of the Council). She married secondly, Captain Daniel McCarty, of Westmoreland county, speaker of the House of Burgesses 1715-20. In her will dated November 7, 1728, probated Westmoreland county May 31, 1732, she names her son Colonel Henry Fitzhugh, brother Henry Fitzhugh, brothers Thomas, Henry and Richard Lee, her daughter Lettice, Elizabeth daughter of Major John Fitzhugh, her daughter Sarah Fitzhugh, & c.
Issue (Fitzhugh): 14. Henry,4 15. Lettice,4 born July 15, 1707, died February 10, 1732, married, May 16, 1727, George Turberville, of "Hickory Hill," Westmoreland. Her tomb remains there, and its long inscription was printed in the William & Mary Quarterly, VIII, 95; 16. Sarah,4 born 1710, died October, 1743; married, January 5, 1735-6 (St. Pauls Psh Reg.), Edward Barradall, Attorney-General of Virginia. They are buried in the same tomb in Bruton churchyard, Williamsburg, Va. The epitaph has been printed in Virginia Historical Society Collections.
The tomb bears the arms of Barradall and Fitzhugh empaled.
10. Henry3 Fitzhugh (William2), of "Bedford," was born Jan. 15, 1686-7, died Dec. 12, 1758 (Family Bible). He inherited under his fathers will 17,598 acres in Stafford, 7 negroes, 6 pieces of plate, £120 sterling out of his fathers money in England, half the books, &c., &c. He was high sheriff of Stafford 1715, and member of the House of Burgesses for that county in 1736 (Va. Hist Register, IV, 136). His portrait has been preserved. He married Feb. 21, 1718, Susanna, daughter of Mordecai Cooke, of Gloucester Co. (who was a member of the House of Burgesses for that county in 1714).
Issue: 17. William4, born Dec. 12, 1719, died unbaptized; 18. Ann,4 born March 8, 1720-21, baptized by Rev. Giles Rannford, and had for sureties Mr. Henry Butler, Mrs. Elizabeth Berryman, and Mrs. Barbara Fitzhugh. She died April 18, 1789. She married Nov. 6, 1740, the distinguished minister Rev. Robert Rose, of Essex, and afterwards of St. Annes Parish, Albemarle. Her portrait has been preserved; 19. Henry4; 20. Thomas4; 21. John4; 22. William4; 23. Sarah4, born Aug. 21, 1729; twin with William; 24. Elizabeth4, born 18, 1736.
11. Thomas3 Fitzhugh, of Stafford Co.; clerk of that county in 1715. He married Ann, widow of William Darrall, and daughter of Col. George Mason (2d), of Stafford. He inherited under his fathers will 4,334 acres, 7 negroes, 7 pieces of silver plate, £120 sterling, &c., &c. The will of Thos. Fitzhugh, of Stafford, proved in Richmond Co. 1719, names his wife Ann, daughter Mary, and brothers George, John and Henry Fitzhugh. But it is evident that a son was born after the will was made, for in Richmond Co., Nov., 1723, Ann, widow of Thomas Fitzhugh, was appointed guardian of Henry, his "younger son and heir." None of the accounts of the family give any notice of his descendants, so it is probable that the son and daughter died young.
12. George3 Fitzhugh, of Stafford, inherited under his fathers will 5,975 acres, 7 negroes, 7 pieces of silver plate, £120 sterling, &c., &c. He was a member of the House of Burgesses for that county in 1718 (Va. Hist. Reg., IV, 18). He married Mary, daughter of Col. George Mason (2d) of Stafford (who in his will dated 1715 names his son-in-law George Fitzhugh), and died intestate about 1722 (Stafford Records).
Issue: 24. George4, died unmarried (Stafford Records); 25. William4.
13. Major John3 Fitzhugh, of Stafford Co., inherited under his fathers will 2,273 acres of land, 7 negroes, 8 pieces of silver plate, £120 sterling, &c., &c. He married on or before 1719, Anna Barbara, daughter of Daniel McCarty, Speaker of the House of Burgesses (by his 1st marriage), and died Jan. 21st, 1733.
Issue: 26. William4; 27. Daniel, born June 27, 1733 (St. Paul Reg.); 28. Sarah, born April 30, 1727 (St. Paul Reg.); 29. Elizabeth4, named in will of Mrs. McCarty, 1728, as "daughter of Major John Fitzhugh"; 30. Barbara4, married Feb. 6, 1739 (St. Paul Reg.) Rev. William McKay, minister of Hanover Parish, King George Co. The Va. Gazette, in a notice of the marriage calls her "daughter of the late Major John Fitzhugh, of Stafford Co."; 31. John ? (a John Fitzhugh, said to be "of the Marmion branch," married Jan. 31, 1760, Elizabeth, daughter of Nathaniel Harrison, of "Brandon," Prince George Co. He was certainly not the son of George3, nor of Thomas3, nor was he the same as John Fitzhugh of "Belair," son of Henry3. So from a consideration of all the evidence, it seems probable that he was a son of Major John Fitzhugh).
14. Henry4 Fitzhugh (William,3 William2), of "Eagles Nest," was born 1706, and died December 6, 1742 (St. P. Reg.) He matriculated at Christ Church, Oxford, October 20, 1722 and on his return to Virginia settled on his paternal estate in Stafford county (now King George). He was a member of the House of Burgesses in 1738, 1740, 1742, and probably other years (Journals), and was once an unsuccessful candidate for the place of Speaker. A notice of the inventory of his very large and valuable estate was given in Vol II, 278-9, of this Magazine. It included a library of books valued at £258. 7. 9. Lieutenant-Colonel Henry Fitzhugh (a rank he held in the militia of Stafford) married Lucy, daughter of Hon. Robert Carter, of "Corotoman," Lancaster county. She married, secondly, Colonel Nathaniel Harrison, of "Brandon," Prince George (his second wife), but had no issue by this marriage.
Issue: 32. William5, 33. Lucy, born October 6, 1736 (St. P. Reg.); 34. Elizabeth,5 born April 20, 1731 (St. P. Reg.), married February 12, 1747, Benjamin Grymes, of Spotsylvania county. Her son, Benjamin, was ancestor of the Grymes family of King George county, and her daughter the mother of Bishop William Meade.
19. Henry4 Fitzhugh (Henry,3 William2), of "Bedford," born September 10, 1723, "baptized by Rev. David Stuart, and had for sureties John Fitzhugh, his uncle, and Henry Fitzhugh, his cousin, who was then at the University of Oxford, but was represented by Henry Berryman, Jr., Mrs. Barbara Fitzhugh, and Mrs. Elizabeth Berryman" (Family Bible). He died February, 1783. He married, October 23d, 1746, Sarah Battaile, of Caroline county. In 1752 he was colonel of the Stafford militia (Cal. Va. State Pap.) The will of "Col.

He married, October 30, 1746, Alice (born August 21, 1729; died March 5, 1790), daughter of Rowland Thornton, of "Crowes," King George, and died May 1st, 1809. He does not appear to have held any public office, except perhaps that of justice of the peace.
Issue: 50. Henry5; 51. John,5 born September 29, 1749; died February 9, 1807. Did he marry or leave issue? 52. George,5 born April 24, 1751, died November, 1810. There is on record in King George a deed, February 20, 1787, from John Fitzhugh, of "Bellair," and his son George, conveying to Daniel McCarty Fitzhugh 473 acres in King George, called Feneaux, or the Hop Yard; and on January 12, 1788, George Fitzhugh, of King George, and his wife, Humphrey Francis Toy Fitzhugh, conveyed to Thacker Washington, of King George, a track of land in that county. It seems probable there was no issue of this marriage, as the will of Mrs. Humphrey Frances Toy Fitzhugh, proved in King George in 1791, names only her husband and niece, Caroline Matilda Fitzhugh. Her surname was probably Tabb; 54. Thomas,5 born June 15, 1753. Did he marry or leave issue? 55.

Fitzhugh, with reversion of most of it at her death to his nephew, Edwin, son of Francis Conway, of Caroline county; and if he dies, then to his brother, John Conway; legacy to his niece, Lucy, daughter of his brother, Thomas Fitzhugh. Wife and nephew, Francis Fitzhugh Conway, executrix and executor. Codicil giving 100 guineas to his nephew, Francis, son of his brother, John Fitzhugh.

A. B.s) daughters; to nephew A. S. Hooe, nephew Wm. C. Posey, and to Henry M. R. Beverley, son of her niece, Sarah Ann Beverley.
