Notes for John TEAGUE:

It is known that a John Teague was transported to Virginia, arriving November 27, 1652. He was brought to that colony by Edward Revell, who inherited 500 acres in that area from his father Randall, who witnessed the grant of Wachawampe. John Teague shows up in Northampton, Northumberland, and Westmoreland Counties of Virginia shortly after this transport was recorded.

Again from the Somerset County Court Archives (Maryland): "The Same Cort: Commrs as afore The Deposicon of Roger Patrick aged 35 years or thereabouts taken in Cort ye 10th novembr 1675.

"This Deponent Saith yt about Six years agoe John Teague Senr: gave a Cowe with A Cowe Calfe by her Side to his Son John Teague Junr: before me & my wife Anne And Henry Bishop Junr: This Depont: further Saith that Robert Richardson of Pocentenorten hath in his Possession the Said Cattle & theire Increase & further saith not Roger Patrick."

Comments: It would appear that the John Teague who arrived in Virginia with Edward Revell (son of Randall) and the (elder?) John referred to above in Somerset County, Maryland are the same person.

On the same day's Court records in Somerset County, Maryland, there is an entry of:
David Brown is the Securitie for ye appearance of Randall Revell next County Cort: Acknowledgeth himselfe to Stand indebted unto the Lord Propty:in the Sume of ten pounds of Lawfull money of England.

It has been suggested that Edward Teague was the son of this John Teague of Maryland, however the above extracts seem to disprove this. As the 6 year old child has "no other relacon in this County", it would appear that her father, John Teague, was the John Teague Jr referred to in the first extract and that the male family line died out.

Early US Teagues A great deal of work is currently being done on the earliest Teagues in America, so it seemed to make sense to collect all the available data together on one page.

More About EDWARD TEAGUE :

Also Known As: Ed
Arrival: 1675 in Province of Maryland, British Colony
Burial: North East, Cecil County, Province of Maryland, British Colony; Saint Mary Annes Episcopal Cemetery4

Notes for Edward TEAGUE: He died Mar. 9, 1696/7; Appraisal Sept 20,1697, Cornelius Comegy and George Almery, Cecil County, Maryland. Edward Teague (also "Tegg ") was from Bristol, England, and paid passage to America on Thomas Jones' Ship in 1675. He settled in Cecil County, Maryland where he bought 290 acres of land, naming it "Teggs' Delight." Dave R. Larrimore ODT41-0001.html he says Edward was born bet. 1655-1660 in Bristol Eng. and that his father was John Teague 1635 in Eng. d. Abt. 1677 in MD - Source: Teague Family Mag. Web site: http://people.hsc.edu/faculty-staff/lewisw/research/teague/aqwg01.htm (Dead Link) Source: Excerpt from the Teague Family Magazine originally published in the 1970's "The earliest known record we have located on Edward Teague is contained in the hall of Records in Annapolis, Maryland in the "Index to Early Settlers" (1630-1680). Volume 2. This reads as follows: June 8,1675 "Eoderm Die (this day) Thomas Jones proved his right to two hundred and fifty acres of land for transporting himself, Edward Teage, John Edmonds, Sr., Rebecca Edmonds, John Edmonds, Jr. into this Province to in habit"

The question, where did Edward Teague come from? Was he transported direct from England, or was he brought into Maryland from the Eastern Shore of Virginia where some earlier Teagues had settled? The record doesn't say but in checking on Thomas Jones, the person who transported him into Maryland we find he, (Thomas Jones), was a mariner from Bristol, England, a trader and sheriff of Somerset County, Maryland. We belieive Edward was 15 when transpored into Maryland; that his year of birth was in the neighborhood of 1660. As to the names of his parents, the Association hasn't let up on the research. We have several good leads, but nothing definite that we can prove by the records. The second record on Edward Tegg (as was spelled in these documents) relates to a Warrant Patent of 300 acres of land in Cecil County, Maryland, as laid out in two tracts by Thomas Coursey, Deputy Surveyor, - one for 130 acres dated August 25, 1695, and the other for 160 Acres dated August 26, 1695. These were recorded in the Land Office in Annapolis, Maryland. Ten."

Source: www.parsonstech.com/genealogy/trees/sniederm/d174.htm(dead link) they say Edward was born 1655 in Bristol, Gloucestershire, England This interesting since no one else seems to know where he was born.

Notes from Judy L. Rodgers, (edited for privacy) rodgers (at) thrifty.net:

Edward Teague
It has been suggested that Thomas Jones' ship may only have 'transported' its four passengers across the Chesapeake from Virginia in view (a) of the very small number of passengers and (b) the relatively low number of acres he received for the transportation. Numerous passenger lists and land grants to ships' captains bringing immigrants both from England and Ireland have been checked and it appears that a 'grant' of 50 acres per head is the norm, which would suggest that Jones had brought his passengers across the Atlantic.


Could the following extract be a clue as to Edward Teague's whereabouts in the 20 years between his arrival in Maryland and his acquisition of land in Cecil County?
