Notes


i. ROBERT4 BRACEWELL, b. Abt. 1611, London, England; d. May 01, 1668, Isle of Wight Co., VA; m. UNKNOWN ?, Bef. 1645; b. Abt. 1612; d. Aft. 1652.


"At the age of fourteen young Robert Bracewell was sent to Oxford College to be educated for the ministry. Records of colonial Virginia show that Robert Bracewell, son of Richard Bracewell of London, England, Gentleman, entered Hart Hall, Oxford University 22 February 1627 at the age of fifteen and graduated with an A.B. Degree November 1631. This information had been certified of recent years by an Oxford Registrar. " (THE BRASWELL FAMILY - Elizabeth Braswell Pearsall).


ISLE OF WIGHT COUNTY, VIRGINIA DEEDS, 1750-1782 transcribed and abstracted
by William Lindsay Hopkins. 1995:


"Isle of Wight County was one of the original shires of Virginia established in 1634. For three years, until 1637 it bore the name Warrosquyoake. Only then did its name first appear as Isle of Wight. As first constituted, the new county bore vague boundary description which was clarified by several Acts (1639/40, 1642/43, and 1647). It included the land south of the James
River between Nansemond County on its eastern flank and James City County on the northwest. Nansemond land consisting of the Terrascoe Neck and the Ragged Islands was added to Isle of Wight in 1656. In 1769 land west of Chuckatuck Creek and in 1772 Rascow's Neck were also added to Isle of Wight from Nansemond. Finally, in 1749, the only division of the county occurred when the southern portion of the county was taken to form Southampton
County."


Reference to John Upton and the patten sold to Rev. Robert Bracewell and dated the 16th of Nov 1638. This verifies that Rev. Robert was in Virginia by 1638. He graduated from Oxford University 1631. So, in the space of only 7 years, starting about age 19, the Rev. Robert married and came to Virginia. We do not have proof of his wife's name or where they were married where the children were born.

Rob Bracell


In Wittness of George Gwillim Richard Izard


This will was proved in open court held for the Isle of Wight County this first day of May 1668 and then recorded


Teste John Jenings Clr: Recordes


There has been speculation by some that the Bracewell name was pronounced
Bra zuell. We believe if you look at how Rev. Robert Bracewell signed his
own name on his will above, Rob Bracell, it will be obvious that the "long
u" is not possible. We believe this was an attempt to change the spelling to
Brazil. There was a family in the area named Brazeale at the same time.
There are certainly many spellings of Bracewell/Braswell down through the
years but the "long u" seems a stretch at the least.
