". . . nr. Northampton City, VA. 1651; nr. Resurrection Manor, Calver Co., Md.; Northampton Manor, Md. "Thomas Sprigg, the colonist and Lord of Northampton Manor, probably came from Northamptonshire, England, and first settled in Northampton County, Virginia, where he and John Nuthall signed the 'Submission to Parliament' in 1651. He probably came to Maryland with Gov. Stone. He was a party to a suit against John Nevill in the Provincial Court in October 1657. He lived at first near Resurrction Manor in that part of Calvert County that was afterwards called Prince George's County and later at Northampton, which in 1910 was still in possession of the descendant Lord Fairfax of Cameron.

"Sprigg was one of the Justices of the Peace and of the Quorum for Calvert County in 1658-1661-1667-1669-1670-1674, commisioned High Sheriff of Calvert County April, 1664, and held the office until May, 1665. He was Justice of the Peace and of the Quorum in Prince George's County in 1696. Thomas Sprigg's first wife, Catherine, died after August 17, 1661, probably without issue.

"He built Northampton Manor house, encircled by a plantation of 800 acres, prior to 1661. His direct descendants have owned and occupied this manor though seven generations. The full length portrait, in which Thomas Sprigg is in full court costume, ks still in the possession of his descendants. No other family other than the Sprigg family and their kindred ever owned the manorial rights of Northampton Manor although the Fairfax family about the end of the Civil War, 1865, became owners of the land."




On December 22, 2011 Marie Mills wrote:

Resurrection Manor is an example of early brick architecture in the United States dating from about 1660 to 1720, and possibly later, and as a rare survivor of a brick house in the southern colonies from that period. Originally built as a one-room house with a steep stair leading to the garrett, a later one-and-a-half story addition was added to the house transforming its footprint into a hall-and-parlor configuration. The original house was also one-and-a-half story and measured 24 feet wide and was 20 1/2 feet deep with a steep-gabled wood shingle roof. The one-bay wide addition was added to the south end of the original building increasing the home's width to 40 feet. The house is illustrative of the evolution of a southern one-room brick structure into a hall-and-parlor plan house.

Built amidst a 4,000-acre farm granted to Thomas Cornwaleys in 1650, it stands as one of the earliest manorial grants in Maryland. Although an exact date of construction is unknown, Cornwaleys ordered bricks in 1660. The amount ordered corresponds to the number of bricks used in the structure. Resurrection Manor was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1970 for its significance as a rare surviving architectural type in the South.



On December 22, 2011 Marie Mills wrote:

Thomas Sprigg's biographers said he was "an officer in the Royal Lancers." Sharon Doliante's book (cited before) says they are unable to confirm this, but that in 1653, in Virginia, he "signed himself as 'Leift. Sprigge,' meaning he was an officer in the military. He came to Virginia as a "Cavalier" and left England "immediately after the execution of Charles I in 1649 . . . " Burke’s Landed Gentry says this for the lineage of a James Cresap Sprigg: "Lieut. Thomas Sprigg of Kettering, Northamptonshire England, b. 1630, officer with Royal army, left Great Britain to settle in America before 1650 . . . .”
