Nat Taylor said on this date April 17,2002: "I have seen NO documented information on either the descendants of Rowland Taylor (other than a claimed descent to Jeremy Taylor, a seventeenth-century Anglican bishop in Ireland), or the parentage of the immigrants

? John Taylor of Lancaster County, Virginia,

? Richard Taylor of Old Rappahannock County, Virginia (my ancestor),

? James Taylor of Caroline County, Virginia (ancestor of President Zachary Taylor),

? Robert Taylor of Essex County, Virginia,

and other people groundlessly alleged by Brewer and her informants and followers to share kinship with each other and descent from Dr. Rowland Taylor."

With all the Taylor families come here about the same time it is hard to see if they are related unless someone goes or hire a searcher to find out. As for now no one knows.

COLONIAL FAMILIES OF THE Southern States of America TAYLOR FAMILY

JAMES TAYLOR, of Caroline Co., Va., b. 1615, near Carlisle, England; d. 1698, in Virginia; came to the Colony in 1635 and settled in Caroline Co. Carlisle, from whence he came, was but 20 miles from Penhington, the old ancestral home, and where his forefathers were buried. Several of the English Taylor's married with the Chi-chester and Culpepper families of England, who also came to Virginia about the same time. He m. (first) Frances --; (second) Mary Gregory.Issue by first marriage

This read all of this wonder news That Robert Allen wrote me

"Yes, so the legend goes. I do not dispute anything you say about the James Taylor who died in 1698 except that his first wife was either Frances __?__ .

Mary Gregory's mother is Elizabeth. I doubt her maiden name was Bishop. Elizabeth Father: Cyprian Bishopp Mother: Mary Davies Eilizabeth Bishopp was a sister to Robert Bishop, by her first husband. Robert Bishop who died in 1678, willing some real property to John Gregory, Jr., Mary Gregory's brother. I was send a copy of this and Robert Bishop did leave John Gregory Jr estate and John Jones JR got heifer and other things too. John Jones JR father was John Jones SR and his mother was a sister to Robert Bishop. For the Robert Bishop mention that John Jones is my brother-in-law.

Now for the mention of Robert have sister. What if this sister was name Mary Bishop. The mix-up of the two women cause the wife of James Taylor to be thought of as Mary Bishop Gregory. Then the name Bishop as middle passed on to his daughter Mary Taylor who married Henry Pendleton. I was told that middle names where not use until after the REV WAR

For the copy of Robert Bishop's will go to Gregory page on my webpage. The link is later mention on the is page or you go back to main page and link there.

Judge Edmund Pendleton had Bible. The Bible is mention on my Pendleton page.

He states That Henry Pendleton wife Mary Taylor (1688-1700) was daughter of James Taylor (who died April 30,1698) of King and Queen Co by his second wife (whom he married Aug 10,1682)Mary Gregory (1665-1747) the daughter of John and Elizabeth (Bishop?) Gregory of Farnham adn Sittingbourne Parishes, Rappahannock Co., of which Parishes he was a Vestryman in 1665. On Feb 20,1663 he had grant of 600 acres in Rappahannock. Co. He was referred to as Captain on May 24,1676 d late in the year 1676

I dispute that the Mary Gregory who was the second wife of James Taylor (d. 1698) had a middle name "Bishop" or any middle name. I was told that middle names where not use until after the REV WAR

Mary Gregory's John Gregory b: 1622 in Langton, England Mother: Elizabeth "Bishopp" b: 1625 in , , "Virginia"

"Genealogical and Heraldic History of the Commoners of Great Britain and Ireland Vol. 4", John Burke, Esq., Family Tree Maker CD 367 Page 237 Taylor of Pennington Lineage The name of this family has not been exempted from the corruption in spelling, which is to be traced in the records of many other family names. Their ancestor was the Norman Baron Taillefer, who accompanied William the Conqueror in his invasion of Great Britain, and of whom Wace, the Anglo-Norman poet, speaks, in describing the battle of Hastings, which took place on Saturday, the 14th October, 1066, Taillefer qui moult bien chantoit Sur nn cheval qui tot alloit Devant eux alIoit chantant De Kalemange et de Roland Et D'Oliver et des Vassals Qui moururent a Rouscevalles.

WFT8-1383

States that a seal ring which had belonged to Jame Taylor I and which bore the crest and seal of Taylor arms has been handed down to the present generation. With his seal ring has also descended a legen to the effect that on a certain occasion when the King of England was enjoying a chase in one of his royal forests, a wild boar, Hard driven, turned upon the royal huntsmanm, whereupon ther sprang to his defense on of the knights who slew the boar. The King out of gratitude gave the Knight a crest, the destingusimg mark of which was an uplifted hand, accompanied by the motto:"CONSEQUITUR QUOD COMQUE PETIT".

Frances Bell Evans, a Gr Gdau of James Taylor has in her possession a Seal Ring, which bears the Taylor Arms, which he wore, and with the ring the legend has been handed down which is said to have added the fourth Boars' Head to the Arms.

"The bible is located at the library of Va with was made in 1767. James Taylor d 1698__his first wife last name is not mentioned. (Many ASSUME it is Walker because the neighbors were Walkers.)

These are bible records:

Meadowfarm

Helen Marie Taylor speaks of he ancestors with an uncanny intimacy."I'm a legend bearer"she says. My grandmother Sally Sears Taylor, instilled in me sense that history is both interesting and immediate. I can remember Sunday dinners where stories from 60 years ago considered hot off the press.

The origins of the estate date to the early 18th century, When Colonel James Taylor II built a small manor house known as Bloomsbury on 13,500 acres of what was the the edge of the wilderness. When Colonel Taylor's children reached matirity, he gave them parcels of adjoining land. The portion given to one of the his elder sons,Zachary(grandfather of the president) was Meadowfarm, where Helen Marie's family lives today. The elder Zachary buila a house on the land in 1727, but it was razed and replaced by the current white-painted brick Greek Revival house in mid 19th century.

Dear Sir;

This register was copied by me in 1870 from the old Bible formerly belonging to John Taylor , the son of the original James, of Carlisle, England. It was at that time the property of my great-aunt, Mrs. Mary Blackwell, formerly Mary Taylor, who was at that time a very old woman. She promised to give me the Bible in her will, but her residence at Bartlett, Tenn, was burned and the Bible destroyed. She was a sister of my grandfather, Joseph Taylor, and a sister of the Rev. Thomas Taylor, who died in Jackson, Tenn. In 1877, I think Your friend, Joe W. Taylor.

He was the 4th President of the United States (1809-17), known as the father of the Constitution because of his central role in the Constitutional Convention Madison was one of the founders of the Jeffersonian Republican party in the 1790s, and he served as Secretary of State (1801-09) under Thomas Jefferson.

Elected as President in 1809 with 122 electoral votes to 47 for the Federalist candidate Charles Pinckney, Madison approved the repeal of the embargo by which Jefferson had tried to avoid war through a ban on trade with the warring European powers. Tensions between the U.S. and Britain continued, however, and Madison's conduct of foreign policy was increasingly criticized both by the Federalists and by members of his own party. In 1812 Madison asked for a declaration of war against Great Britain.

Retirement: Retiring to his estate, Montpelier in Orange County, Virginia, Madison avoided further participation in party politics but did express his support for President Andrew Jackson when South Carolina revived the controversy over nullification of federal laws in 1832. He helped Jefferson found the University of Virginia and became its rector in 1826. He was also a member of the Virginia Constitutional Convention of 1829.

Generation No. 9

PRESIDENT ZACHARY TAYLOR ((COLONEL) RICHARD8, ZACHARY7, JAMES6, JAMES5, THOMAS4, THOMAS3, REV. DR. ROWLAND2, JOHN1) was born November 24, 1784 in Montebello, Virginia, and died July 09, 1850 in White House, Washington D.C.. He married MARGARET MACKALL SMITH June 21, 1810 in Jefferson County, Kentucky.Margaret Mackall Smith, the daughter of a Maryland planter.The Taylors had five daughters and a son. Two of the girls died in infancy. The eldest daughter Sarah, married Jefferson Davis, an officer in Taylor's command, but died three months after her marriage.

(PRESIDENT) ZACHARY TAYLOR:

12th president of the United States (1849-50)He was a career army officer who was elected on the strength of the victories he won in the Mexican War (1846-1848. His father was Col. Richard Taylor, as a officer in the American Revolution he received 6,000 acres of land from the state of Kentucky. Shortly after Zachary was born, the Taylor family moved from Virginia to a plantation on the Muddy Fork of Beargrass Creek, near the present day city of Louisville. Richard Taylor soon became an influential citizen in Kentucky. Despite the wealth and position, Zachary had little formal education.

In 1840 Taylor was sent to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, to command the Southwest Department. This position enabled him to purchase plantation land in Mississippi. Taylor had been a planter and slaveholder since his marriage, but his Cypress Grove plantation, an 2,000 acre tract on the Mississippi River above Natchez, then became his main interest.

Taylor was a reluctant candidate. He had never voted in his life, and it was only after Whig politicians had created a popular groundswell of support for him that he demonstrated enthusiasm for the race. Taylor's opponents for the Whig presidential nomination included U.S. Senator Henry Clay of Kentucky and General Scott. Clay was the most respected Whig leader, but he was old and had previously been defeated three times for the presidency. Scott's candidacy, despite his efforts, never got off the ground. Nevertheless, Taylor faced two obstacles. Northern Whigs opposed him because of his Southern and slaveholding background. Professional politicians opposed him because he had made statements implying that he considered himself above the party. Nevertheless, Taylor's great popularity with the people overcame all obstacles and he was nominated on the fourth ballot at the Whig national convention. Millard Fillmore, comptroller of New York, was chosen as his running mate. As was the tradition at the time, Taylor did not campaign on his own, although he wrote many letters to friends and politicians.

On July 4,1850, Taylor stood in the hot sun at the foot of the Washington Monument in Washington, D.C., listening to patriotic speeches celebrating Independence Day. That night he had an attack of cholera morbus, or acute indigestion, and he died five days later. His last words were, "I regret nothing, but I am sorry to leave my friends." Vice President Fillmore took the oath of office as president and soon delivered a message to Congress indicating that he was willing to compromise on California.

Margaret Smith Taylor:wife of President Taylor, was born in Calvert county, Md., about 1790; daughter of Maj. Walter Smith, an officer of the U.S. army and an extensive planter in [p.107] Calvert county. Her ancestor came from England to Maryland in 1649, and held the appointment of attorney-general from Oliver Cromwell in 1655. Her grandmother Mackall lived on one of the family plantations named by her ancestor, "God's Graces."

Mrs. Jefferson Davis records an incident at a White House dinner in 1849, at which all the parties interested were present, when President Taylor, speaking to Senator Davis of his army life said: "You know my wife was as much of a soldier as I was." She had four children, Anne, Sarah Knox, Elizabeth and Richard. Anne married Dr. Robert C. Wood, surgeon-general, U.S.A., and had four children, John Taylor, Robert C., Anna Dudley, and Sarah Knox Wood. Sarah Knox Taylor married Jefferson Davis, at the time a lieutenant in the U.S.A. Elizabeth married Colonel Bliss, adjutant on the staff of General Taylor, and after his death she was married to Philip Dandridge of Virginia

Children of (PRESIDENT) TAYLOR and MARGARET SMITH are:

1. SARAH KNOX TAYLOR, b. 1813, Vincennes, Indiana; d. September 15, 1835, Locust Grove, Louisiana; m. (PRESIDENT) JEFFERSON DAVIS, C.S.A., June 17, 1835, Louisville, Kentucky. Note: Jefferson Davis then went directly to Louisville, Ky., where he was married to Sarah Knox, daughter of Col. Zachary Taylor, to whom he had been engaged for two years but had failed to secure her father's permission to marry. The marriage took place at the home of the bride's aunt, a sister of Colonel Taylor, and in the presence of the colonel's two sisters, his brother and his son-in-law. The marriage was in no way an elopement, although not sanctioned by the father, and the estrangement between Colonel Taylor and Lieutenant Davis was not healed during the lifetime of Mrs. Davis, who only lived three months. They located on the Brier field tract, a part of the plantation of his brother, Joseph E. Davis, near Vicksburg, Miss., which he accepted in exchange for his interest in his father's slaves who had passed into the service of his older brother. The young couple contracted malarial fever and while on a visit to Locust Grove plantation near Bayou Sara, La., owned by his sister, Mrs. Luther Smith, Mrs. Davis died, Sept. 15, 1835. Mr. Davis spent the winter of 1835-36 in Havana, Cuba.

2 Harriet m'd Franklin Harper Elmore, senator, was born in Laurens, S.C., Jan. 16, 1799; son of Gen. John Archer and —— (Saxon) Elmore. His father was a native of Virginia, a member of the South Carolina legislature, and removed in 1819 to Alabama, where he died in 1834. His brother, Benjamin Franklin, was treasurer of South Carolina; and another brother, Rush, was a soldier in the Mexican war and a justice of the U.S. district court of Kansas, 1854-61.

Died Aug. 4, 1852; the brilliant belle of the White House, known as "Betty Bliss," m. (2) PHILIP PENDLETON DANDRIDGE, February 11, 1858.

7.(LT. GENERAL) RICHARD TAYLOR, b. January 27, 1826, Louisville, Kentucky; d. April 17, 1879, New York City, New York. Richard, soldier, was born in Baton Rouge, La., Jan. 27, 1826; son of Lieut.-Col. Zachary and Margaret (Smith) Taylor. He attended school at Fort Snelling, in Jefferson county, Ky., and in Edinburgh, Scotland, 1839-42, and in Paris, France, 1842-43. He matriculated at Yale in the junior class, 1843, and was graduated in 1845. He at once joined his father on the Rio Grande and continued with the army until after the battle of Resaca de la Palma, when, being attacked by fever, he returned to his home at Baton Rouge, and subsequently engaged in cotton planting on a plantation in Jefferson county, Miss. In 1849 he transferred his planting operations to St. Charles parish, La., where he conducted an extensive sugar plantation. He was married in 1851, to Myrthé Bringier de Lacadière. He died while completing this work in New York city, April 17, 1879.

"TENNESSEE COUSIN" "A History of Tennessee People" by Worth S Ray.

Mentions James Taylor of Carolina Co. VA.

" James and Mary Bishop Gergory Taylor had two more daugthers Jane and Sarah."

In the Tennesse Cousin by Worth Ray. The book had all the counties of Tennessee and Washington Dis. of NC. The following is what is in the book on the Taylors of Tennessee. The "I" in the following is Worth Ray

Found in Carter County, Tennessee: Were Taylors The came from Augusta Co, Va. Isaac from Ireland to Rockbridge Co. Va. His son Andrew was found in Carter Co. TN. I do not think this is our Taylor family. But just want you all to know that we are not the only Taylors in Tennessee.

Our Taylor family was found in Lincoln County, Tennessee. Page 571: "Where the Poplur Name "Young" came into the Taylor family"

Naturelly, the persistant use of the name YOUNG as foremane is the Lincoln County, Tennesse Taylors, had a rason. In tracing the famnily I(Worth) never lost sight of it as a clue. I found Where Edmund Taylor m'd Milllion Shelton in 1775 and where Jamee Taylor m'd Jincle Shelton in Crutchfield in 1804 and them locaated the will of Daniel Shelton in Pittsylvania Co., Va. in 1809. (If anyone wants to know about the Shelton email me) Edmund and his wife Million Shelton had a goodly sized family found in Pittsylvania and Henry Counities. AS Follows: In order that th reader may understand the basis of the wirtter's conclusions about the orgin of the Taylor Family of Lincoln County,TN. I append below some to he items on which these conclusions are founded:

James Taylor m Jincie Shelton of Crutchfield in Pittsylvania County, Virginia Nov 10,1804

Edmund m Million Shelton in Pittsylvania County,Virginia April 1,1775

Benjamin Hawkins m Molley Taylor daugther of William Taylor in Henry Co.,Va. Oct 1, 1778.

John May m Charity Taylor, the daughter of James Taylor, June 23, 1779 in Henry Co., Va

George m Hannah Jinnigs, the daughter of Miles Jennings in Henry Co., VA June 23rd 1779,( the same day that a John Mary married Charity Taylor as shown above.

James Pitman m Martha Taylor in Henry Co Va, July 2,1781

Lucretia, daughter of James Taylor, m John Pearson, Pittsylvania Co. Va. August 22, 1808, William Taylor security on the bond signed by James Taylor, father of the bride.

From the records that have been presented it is easy to figure the relative generations of the TAYLOR family that settled in Pittsylvania county

Charity who married a certain John May in Henry County, Virginia, June 23,1779 was the dauther of Cap James Taylor, who was of an older generation

Mollie m Benjamin Hawkins Oct 1,1778 was of the same generation of Charity above but William evidently brother of Cap James, Mollie and Charity were first cousins.

Capt Edmund was brother of James and William and was the father of Edmund, who married Million Shelton daughter of Cap Daniel Shelton. on April 1,1778

Thus we have three brothers, Edmund, James and William, ancestors of the Pittsylvania Taylors.

About 1688 he entered a tract of land as a homestead consisting of nearly 1000 acres situated on the Mattaponi river in that part of Drysdale Parish of New Kent County, later in the southerly part of Caroline Co., VA (Virgina Land Patent Book #7, p. 520, Oct. 30, 1686).

James Taylor is reputed to be a descendant of the Earls of Pennington.

Ancestor of President James Madison and President Zachary Taylor.

Crest: A naked arm couped at the shoulder embowed, holding an arrow ppr. Motto: Consecquitur quodcunque petit. James Taylor, ancestor of the Caroline county family of that name, is said to have come from the vicinity of Carlisle, England. He was in Virginia before 1650 and took out patents of land on the Mattaponi River. By his first wife, Frances, he had Jane, born 27 Dec., 1668; James, born 1674; Sarah, born 1676. His first wife died in 1680, and in 1682 he married Mary, sister of John Gregory, by whom he had the following children: John and Anne, twins, born 1685, John died young; Mary, born 1688; Edmund, born 1690; John, born 1693, died young; Elizabeth, born 1694, died young; John, born 1696. James Taylor died about 1698 at an advanced age. An old ring handed down in the family is said to have once been his property, and it bears engraved upon it the above crest which is that of the Taylors of Pennington Castle. The descendants of James Taylor have been exceedingly prominent in the history of the State, one of them - Zachary, becoming President.

"Genealogical and Heraldic History of the Commoners of Great Britain and Ireland Vol. 4", John Burke, Esq., Family Tree Maker CD 367 Page 237

Taylor of Pennington Lineage: The name of this family has not been exempted from the corruption in spelling, which is to be traced in the records of many other family names. Their ancestor was the Norman Baron Taillefer, who accompanied William the Conqueror in his invasion of Great Britain, and of whom Wace, the Anglo-Norman poet, speaks, in describing the battle of Hastings, which took place on Saturday, the 14th October, 1066, Taillefer qui moult bien chantoit Sur nn cheval qui tot alloit Devant eux alIoit chantant De Kalemange et de Roland Et D'Oliver et des Vassals Qui moururent a Rouscevalles.

Virginia Marriages to 1800 Virginia This database of Virginia marriages to 1800 contains over 85,000 names. Each entry includes groom, bride, marriage date, county, and state. Every name is indexed so you can search for one name, or two names that are linked. The marriage date is usually the date of marriage as given in the original entry. However, when no marriage date is given (e.g., the "marriage return" was not provided to the record keeper), the date of the license is used. In a few cases, a marriage will be listed twice, but in two different counties. This most often happened when a couple obtained a license in one county, but were actually married in another. These marriage records, compiled by Liahona Research at the LDS Family History Library in Salt Lake City, UT, unfortunately do not contain citations for the origin of each entry. The purpose of this database is to provide a time and place for as many marriages as possible. It is up to the researcher to examine original records (see the Family History Library Catalog--available at any LDS family history center-- under the heading "Vital Records" for the appropriate locality) and gather whatever additional genealogical information is desired Dodd, Jordan.
