Sprigg Family Genealogy Forum
I have a book with me which has some information on these people which I will share with you; "Tidewater Maryland Architecture and Gardens, a Sequel to Early Manor and Plantation Houses of Maryland" by Henry Chandlee Forman:
In the section "Sprigg's Northampton and L'Enfant's Garden" - One of the important estates of Prince George's County is Northampton, a tract of 1000 acres surveyed on May 26, 1673, for Thomas Sprigg I, born in Northamptonshire, England, and who later became High sheriff, Justice, and Commissioner of Calvert County, Maryland. He was married twice, first to Katerine Roper, as sister-in-law of Governor William Stone of Maryland (my ancestor), then to Eleanor Nuthall, a granddaughter of John Nuthall, who owned the Manor of Cornwaleys Corsse and St. Elizabeth's Manor near St. Mary's City."
"When Sprigg died in 1704 he bequeathed to his son, Thomas II, 'my dwelling home and all houses and land of Northampton and Rolling that I have not disposed of, and one part of five hundred acres of land I patented for me, The Manor Collington.' In 1707, fifty acres of Northampton were possessed by Thomas Brooke, and 850 by Thomas Sprigg II."
I will continue this information.
