For current research on Teague origins and family, see Space:Teague_Name_Study
Edward Teague is believed to have been born circa 1660, based on his appearance before a court in the Province of Maryland in 1674: Thomas Jones brings his servant Edward Teage before the Court and prays the worshipful Court to judge his age. He, ye said Edward Teague, coming into this province without indentures. After a full review by the Justices setting in Court of the said servant Edward Teage, this Court does adjudge him the said Edward Teage fourteen years of age.
The location of his birth is not known nor is his exact date of birth. His parents are unknown as well.
He was Previously listed as a son of John Teague Teague-10, though there are no sources to corroborate this.
On June 8, 1675, Edward and Thomas Jones again appear before a court in Maryland, to claim a headright of land granted to Jones:
Sometime in late 1686 or early 1687, a warrant for Edward's arrest appears to have been issued for an unpaid debt, since the court in Somerset County, Maryland records that in January of 1687:
Note: "'n:est: Invts Caps" is an abbreviation that suggests that the Sheriff was unable to locate Edward to answer the arrest warrant or the plea against him.
In 1695, Edward claimed his right to 300 acres of land: 160 acres he called "Pembroke" and 130 acres called "Tegg's Delight," both located along the Susquehanna River in Cecil County, Maryland. Pembroke was the first to be patented, on October 10, 1695:
The second of Edward's land patents was granted for Tegg's Delight on November 10, 1695:
Edward is known to have died on March 9, 1697 at Tegg's Delight.
He is said to have drowned in the Hunango Creek of the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania. "Edward Teague died in the River that runs through Tegg's Delight. According to the Cecil County Historical Society his body was never recovered and the church records do not show him being buried at this location." 
Robert Barnes reports that "--- Teague had died by 19 April 1704 when his widow Susan married Emanuel Smith, and had issue: William, Catherine, Anne." 
He is said to be buried in the Saint Mary Annes Episcopal Church Cemetery, North East Cecil County, Maryland
His estate was appraised on September 20, 1697, and his possessions were listed as follows:
His estate was settled 5-4-1702.: an appraisal of his estate, entered in court by Cornelius Comegy and George Almery of Cecil County. Emanuel Smith who was the administrator of the estate, married Edward's Widow, Susannah.
Interestingly, the land originally granted to Edward in 1695 remains largely intact near the modern town of Conowingo, Maryland. Since 1955, 600 acres that include Pembroke and Tegg's Delight have operated as Camp Conowingo, owned by the Girl Scouts of Central Maryland. Indeed, portions of the chimney and traces of Edward's homestead continue to stand where the stones were set more than 300 years ago.

Martha Bapp Bapp-4 and Betty Unknown Twigg Unknown Twigg-1 were both listed as mother of Edward Teague and spouse of John Teague. No data in either profile to support claim, no ancestors to compare. I completed the merge for Edward. (Bairfield-1 00:17, 21 May 2014 (EDT)) This is proven in court documents in Somerset County, MD, where it states that Edward "as the 6 year old child has 'no other relacon in this county'.
Further, "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 believe 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."

Frederick County, Virginia He moved with his family to where he remained for 14 years. He acquired several tracts of land recorded in the Winchester Court House Virginia. As some of the sons became of age, they too acquired land. Teagues, Shephads, Morgans, Crawfords, Van Metres, Hites and others were identified with the Mecklenburg (now Shepher dstown) locality. This area was known as the "Hite-Van Metre" patents. Wm Teague settled on the Hite-Van Metre lands: His property was a part of a 300 acres tract, then in Orange County, granted to Richard Pendell, 3 Page 4 of 826 Monday, August 17, 2020Generation 2 (cont.) His property was a part of a 300 acres tract, then in Orange County, granted to Richard Pendell, 3 Oct. 1734. 88 acres of the 300 sold to him by Pendell on a branch of the " Shenandore" River, called the " Cattail Branch" 121 acres from James Brown "lying on the south side of the Cohongoluta River, (Potomac River above its confluence with the Shenandoah) probably between Martinsburg and Mecklenburg 11 Oct. 1750, 145 acres granted by Thomas, Lord Fairfax. It is uncertain if he resided on any of them. A small stream, "Teague's Run", in the vicinity of Mecklenburg had its headspring on one of the old Teague properies. It empties into the Potomac near Shephards town. From County records at Winchester, Virginia 13 July 1744, Wm. Teague was the assignee of Jno. Baldwin. In 1751, Wm Teague prepared to emigrate to the Carolinas and sold his entire holdings of approx 500 acres in Frederick County, Virginia: 13 June 1751 to Benjamin Sebastin, 88; 17 Aug 1751 to Elijah Teague, his son, 145 acres; 17 Aug 1751 to Robert Fulsham, 121 acres; 3 Oct.1751 to Abraham Teague 135 acres; 12 Feb. 1752 deeds of lease and release for 192 acres made to Elijah and Abraham Teague by Wm Teague. Rowan County, N. Carolina 1751 Wm came into North Carolina with his two younger sons, Joshua, born N. Carolina 1732, Wm Teague, Jr. 1733. They were the first of the clan to settle in North Carolina. In the next 6 years they were joined by the other four sons, Rev. Edward, Moses, Abraham & Elijah & their families. All settled in Rowan County acquiring good tracts of land on Abbotts Creek. Conditions were suitable for progress and happiness. Within 15 years, this changed. 9 Jan 1761 #4918 Wm granted in Parish of St. Luke on North side of the Cattaba River. Wit: Jas Watson, Wm Reed. Examined by Tho Jones & W. Churton Warrant dated 3 Apr 1752, surveyed 18 Feb 1753. The plat reads "tract of land in Anson Co"; the grant reads "sd land in Rowan Co" - Rowan was formed from Anson in 1753. (Lord Granville to; from Original records�North Carolina State Archives- Raleigh)" In North Carolina, prior to the Revolutionary War, there was considerable unrest because of the method of taxation & the collection of these taxes by the British Authorities. This brought on the " Regulator Movement.' The climax being the "Battles of Almance," 16 May 1771. Being inexperienced, the 4,000 Regulators were defeated by the British in a matter of hours. Those who were engaged in this conflict found it expedient to remove themselves from the jurisdiction of the local authorities to avoid reprisals. After this took place in North Carolina, the Teagues family began to move into South Carolina. Elijah Teague settled in Newberry County, South Carolina several years before some of the other brothers came in. Joshua Teague began to dispose of his land in North Carolina & on 10 July 1771, he purchased 250 acres on Bush Creek in Laurens County, South Carolina.

Info sent from Cheri Johnston: "In a chat with the manager of the cemetery for the City of Salisbury, she said it wouldn't be possible for Isabella to be buried there since the cemetery began in 1888, and Isabella died in 1762. (Unless perhaps she was moved there from another burial site, but there were no records in the cemetery office to indicate that.)"
