Ursula Presley - Wharton Ransdell
Posted by: Eduardo Bolanos (ID *****4594) Date: June 05, 2006 at 08:13:15

I have received the following message from Alice Algood at my personal email:

"I regret that there is so much misinformation out on the internet when there is much proof of this line. Ursula Presly, daughter of Peter and Elizabeth Thompson Presly married (1) Daniel Neale (2) Wharton Ransdell. Wharton Ransdell was the son of Edward Ransdell. All of this is in a 618 page book on Ursula Presly Neale Randsdell grandmother, Ursula Bysshe, who married Richard Thompson on the Isle of Kent, Maryland in 1641. Ursula Bysshe was the neice of Col William Claiborne and her English ancestry is provable back to the mid 1100's. Please contact me if you are interested.
Check the attachment for more information. FYI the book is on now on sale for $50.00 plus $5.00 shipping and handling.
Alice Algood"

Alice's email is: athenae1@bellsouth.net

I wrote Alice asking her about the birthdates of Ursula Presley and Wharton. This is her reply:

"Elizabeth Thompson, b.c. 1645, and Peter Presly married sometime after 20 February 1663/64. My records indicate that Ursula Presly was born circa 1676 and was the youngest daughter. Her sister, Jane, is the only daughter whose birth/christening [29 June 1664] was recorded at St. Stephens. Ursula Presly married Daniel Neale circa 1695 since he was born 26 July 1673.
Daniel Neale made his Will 19 December 1713 and it was proven 2 March 1713/14. Wharton Ransdell was the eldest son of Edward Ransdell whose Will was made 1 May 1724 and probated 24 June 1724. Ursula predeceased Wharton whose Will was made 10 June 1755 and proven 25 April 1758. Wharton married as his 2nd wife a widow, Sarah Monroe Sturman, widow of William and d/o Sarah Monroe. From the above information it can be deducted that Wharton was born about 1680-85 Since Sarah Monroe Sturman Ransdell did not name any of Wharton's sons in her Will, again we would confirm that those sons were Ursula's ."
