SKAGGS FAMILY OF MARYLAND
Posted by: DENNIS GLASSCOCK (ID *****3981) Date: February 24, 2006 at 05:18:51
  of 362

=======================================================================
KENT COUNTY, MARYLAND

Kent County, Maryland was formed from St. Mary's in 1642. In 1659, Baltimore County was created from parts of Ann Arundel, Kent and unorganized territory. In 1662, Talbot was created from Kent, and in 1666, Somerset from non-county area. In 1671, Kent gained substantially from Talbot, and in 1696, Kent and Talbot exchanged lands.


William SKAGGS (SCAGGS, STAGG, Or SKAG) was a ship Captain who sailed to and from the colonies in the mid 1600's. George SKEGG and William SKEGG were both listed on the same page in the index, but they had been sentenced to "transportation, T/53/40 page 337-8." (We can surmise they were not sentenced at the same time.) Both George and William were sentenced to Hertford Prison and their destination on the Speedwell and Mediterranean was Maryland. The captains of their ship were William CAMPLIN and George HARRIOT, whom I noted had made various voyages with other ships as Captains...He was transported to the America in 1666. May have had sons named John, Henry, James & Charles SKAGGS. County: DEVON. (Taken from "The Original Lists of Emigrants in Bondage" from London to the American Colonies 1719-1744, Edited and with introduction by Marion and Jack Kaminkow, Published by Magna Carta book Co. Baltimore, Maryland 21215.)

Nothing further has been learned of the above William SKAGGS--either in Kent or in Devonshire, England.

========================================================================

1720s-1730s, NC, TN, VA: Our own undocumented SKAGGS family tradition,
descending from Henry's grandson, John W., through John's grandson, Alvie, says that three brothers, David, Benjamin, and Henry, came to NC from northern Scotland in the late 1720s or early 1730s. David went to western NC or eastern TN, Henry went into VA, and Benjamin stayed in NC.

The name of James SKAGGS, believed to be the patriarch of the SKAGGS clan in southwest VA and west-central KY, first appears in the records in August 1746 when he and other local residents were appointed to build a new road from Adam HARMAN's to the North Branch of the Roanoke River. --Mary B. and F.B. Kegley, Early Adventurers on the Western Waters, v.1 (Orange, VA: Green Publishers, 1980), 367; F.B. Kegley, Kegley's Virginia Frontier, v.? (Roanoke, VA: Southwest Virginia Historical Society, 1938), 117; Ulysses S.A. Heavener, German New River Settlement--Virginia (by the author, 1928; 1961 printing), 12.

Kegley, Early Adventurers, 367: "James SKAGGS (also SCAGGS, SKEGGS) was
one of the earliest residents on Meadow Creek, appearing first in 1749 when he served as one of the appraisers of John ELSWICK's estate. He had lands surveyed as early as 1751 and added other tracts on Meadow Creek and Little River by deed (Chalkley, Chronicles, III, 18, 293, 321; Augusta County surveys). In 1769 James SKAGGS and his wife, Rachel, sold part of their lands to Henry SKAGGS and James SKAGGS, Jr. probably their sons (Chalkley, Chronicles, III, 490). Other tracts were disposed of to Thomas MASTIN and John PLICKINSTARVOR (Summers, Annals, pp.668, 1671).
"In 1776 the Committee of Safety for Fincastle County recorded that Captain James SKAGGS was unable to serve any longer because of his infirm state of health, and Thomas INGLES was appointed to succeed him. Presumably this is James SKAGGS, Sr. (Harwell, Committee of Safety . . . p.76).

"There is no record of a will or settlement of James SKAGGS' estate in Montgomery County and so no list of children can be established. Other SKAGGS mentioned include James, Henry, Charles, Richard, Moses, and Aaron. In the militia records and tithable lists additional names appear including William, Archibald, John Jr., John (Goard Head), Zachariah, Henry (son of Aaron), James (longman) and Jacob. The D.A.R. lists Charles, James, John, and William. The 1810 Montgomery County
census only lists Joseph. Marriages for Isaac in 1787, Jeremiah and Peter in 1788, and William in 1825 are recorded in Montgomery County (Montgomery County marriages; 1810 census; Kegley, Tithables; Kegley, Militia; Kegley, Tax List; D.A.R. Patriot Index).
