In Reply to: Re: Tabitha Scruggs B. 1694 Henrico Co., VA by Michele Petersen of 1672

Tabitha Jones, daughter of Edward Jones and Mary Field m. John Robinson/Robertson. Edward Jones appears to have been an older man, so it may have been a 2nd marriage for him. Mary Field, daughter of Thomas Field, died bef Feb. 1718/19 in probably Henrico Co, where Edward died earlier. They had 4 daughters: Tabitha; Susanna who married Wm. Bradley; Elizabeth who married John Turberfield; Mary who married John Gates.

When Thomas Field Sr. died, his son Thomas inherited his property in Henrico Co; Thos. died shortly after, and the property went to his brother, John, who also died soon. As their sister, Mary inherited the land, with Edward Jones, her husband, who petitioned the court for administration of the estates of Thos. Field Jr. and John Field on 2 Apr 1688. Edward and Mary were evidently in debt, as they mortgaged some of the land 14 Mar 1697/8 to John Pleasants. Edward Jones evidently died around that time, as Mary married Charles Scruggs (often listed as Snuggs) in 1697 or 98. Scruggs apparently had also been married before. They had only one daughter, Judith, who died aft Sept. 15, 1747; she married William Bradshaw. Mary died before Charles, as he left a will.

Tabitha and John Robinson had 11 children:
1. Unknown daughter who married John Holloway, Jr.
2. John Jr. who married Ann Bradshaw
3. Thos. who married Jane Magdaline LeGrand
4. Field, married Obedience Bradshaw
5. Christopher, m. Sarah Nichols
6. Edward m. Judith
7. Judith m. Field Bradshaw
8. Susannah m. Wm. Bradshaw (not the same one who married Judith Scruggs;
9. Hezekiah m. Judith
10. Joseph m. Jane Hendrick
11. Elizabeth m. Daniel Hogan

All children thought to be born in Henrico Co. VA. The family moved to Goochland/Cumberland. They are heavily intermarried with the Bradshaws.
