James Ramsbottom of Madison County, Virginia
Posted by: Michael Johnson (ID *****1715) Date: May 05, 2002 at 05:04:30
  of 160

I would like to have two bits of information.

The first is information that definitively lists James Ramsbottom Sr. (b c1745) and James Ramsbottom Jr.(b c1781) as father and son, possibly a will or property/deed transfer where Sr. call Jr. his son.

The second is information that links James Ramsbottom Sr. to the Ramsbottom's of England. I have seen files where some researchers have tried to make him the James Ramsbottom born 1757 in Lancashire, England and married to Elizabeth Hargreaves, but after reading the book "Ramsbottom-Ransbotton" by Wendall Hickerson Bradley, and his analysis, I don't believe this to be true. The book is available in the Library in Culpeper, Virginia.

In the book, Wendall Bradley lists James as born about 1745, and believe he may have come to America before or early in the Revolution. He believes that the James Rasbotham who takes the "Oath of Allegience" on 18 August 1778 in Pennsylvania, is probably the James Ramsbottom born c1745.

The first records for James Ramsbottom (c1745) are the 1782 Land Tax and Personnal Property Tax lists for Culpepper County, Virginia (from which Madison was formed)

He also believes that James Ramsbottom's (c1745) wife Elizabeth, may be a Garriott. This is evidenced by James (c1745) having possession of 300 acres of land in Culpeper County once owned by A. Garriott, without there being a deed sale or transfer. This may indicate a possible dowry of the 300 acres from A. Garriott to James Ramsbottom for the marriage of his daughter Elizabeth.

I have three generations of Ramsbottoms as follows:
