Spriggs/Sprigg - 1600's, Virginia and Maryland
Posted by: Melva M. (Girton) Sloan (ID *****0889) Date: April 17, 2005 at 16:44:50

I am looking for the parents of Alice Spriggs, born about 1644, who married Robert Brashears. I was told long ago (though I have no proof) that Alice was the daughter of Thomas Sprigg and Eleanor Nuthall. I am seeking proof of that connection.

I have a copy of the book "Maryland and Virginia Colonials: Genealogies of Some Colonial Families", by Sharon J. Doliante, which gives a lot of information on the Sprigg and Nuthall families, but list no daughter Alice for Thomas Sprigg. (I would be glad to search this book for anyone.)

Thomas married Kathryn Graves ca 1650, and he married Eleanor Nuthall before 1668. Now I'm wondering if there was a wife before Kathryn and Eleanor, since my Alice appears to have been born before Thomas married Kathryn.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
