My ENGLISH Brickwall is (name and circa) Greenberry English
Earliest known Geographic location & date Gadsden County Florida
We think our ENGLISH migrated from (no proof yet) Georgia
Comments:
The 1850 census of Gadsden co, Florida shows him working as a laborer for Tabitha Bateman. Age is 28, so 1822ish is birth year guess. He married Mary Newbern in Madison county FL in 1853. He isn't on 1860 census but Mary and children are in Taylor county FL. I know he wasn't a child of Cornelius of Georgia and Florida. Wonder about the Josiah English in Gadsden in 1850.

Some sites have listed William Thomas English/Ingles (1729-1782) as father to Thomas. Mother is listed as Mary Elizabeth "Bettie" Draper (1729-1813). They lived in Virginia, what is now Pulaski CO. I haven't seen any proof that this is my Thomas' parents.

My ENGLISH Brickwall is (name and circa) Nicey English
Earliest known Geographic location & date Tatnall County, GA
Comments:
Nicey English married a John S. Whitfield and had her first child in about 1814 so she probably was born in 1790's. Can't seem to find her on any censuses. Know that her husband, John Staten Whitfield, served with Cornelius English in Lowndes County in 1839 as Justice of Peace.
Also, think her last child, John B. Whitfield, might be named after someone in Barrentine family (Cornelius English married a Mrs. Nancy BARRENTINE in 1827). Stumped because the family had sooo many "Nancy's" but no mention of "Nicey". Nicey's children ended up around Dixie Taylor county in Florida.

My ENGLISH Brickwall is (name and circa) Ruben English
Earliest known Geographic location & date Tattnall County, GA
We think our ENGLISH migrated from (no proof yet) North Carolina
Comments:
Ruben English (1797-1880) supposedly migrated to and settled in Bryan County, GA sometime before 1820. He was supposed to be driving cattle north after wintering in Florida. He had a cousin, William English, who settled there too. Also a female sister or cousin who came from Tattnall County, Georgia.
I believe that Ruben was one of the orphans identified in Tattnall County in the 1805 GA Land Lottery. Somehow he must be related to Cornelius English because one of his grandsons was named Neil English. I can trace Cornelius and his brother back through Montgomery Co., GA, to Washington Co., GA. I found them earlier on Drowning Creek in Montgomery County, NC which was formerly Anson County.
Ruben English stated on the 1880 census that his father was born in Georgia.
During the colonial period a James English married a Mary May in 1770 at old Ebenezer Church (Salzburger) in nearby Effingham Co., GA. Just before or right after the Revolution, a James English was operating a ferry across the Ogeechee River, also nearby.
I doubt that we will ever determine the name of Ruben's father or mother but I'd like to know more about the ancestry of the Tattnall County Englishes. Some or most of them migrated to south Georgia and eventually ended up in Florida.
I have been most everywhere trying to locate my Englishes. Some received land grants in colonial NC. Another family of Englishes lived in Bladen County, NC. I have also searched the Spanish records microfilmed at the Tallahassee FL Archives. I don't read Spanish but I recognized the surname "Ingles," or "Inglese," I believe. My sister and I still own a few acres of Ruben's original land grant in Bryan County, GA. His genealogy has been published in the Shuman family genealogy but it is incomplete. The old English cemetery is located very near Lake Lorraine, Bryan County, near Ellabell, GA. All my English cousins and great aunts and uncles left Bryan County for Savannah or Atlanta. There is no one left there today.
Any help will be appreciated.

Comments:
I can find no official documents on Thomas English. However, the memoirs of Ida Clark, granddaughter of Thomas, suggest he was married to Jane Wicker, and that his father was William. She details his children who are all found in the early 1800s in Cape Girardeau. There is a tombstone in Jackson, Cape Girardeau, Mo which places his birth at 1751, although the memoir places it in 1754. He is also an active participant in the creating of a Baptist church, Bethel Chapel, in Cape Girardeau. He could be the Thomas English in Virginia's 8th foot regiment during Revolutionary War. There is also a Thomas English granted land in Washington County after the war.

Earliest known Geographic location & date talladega, AL
We think our ENGLISH migrated from (no proof yet) Waxhaw Settlement, SC and/or Maury, TN
Comments:
Alexander Crawford English, b abt 1807 in SC, married Margaret Rose Lewis abt 1838; purchased land in Pickens Co, Al, in 1820 for cash, but they lived in Talladega after they married. The 1840 AL Census, lists 'farmer' as his occupation. By 1860 he had totally disappeared. Learned he died in 1951 in Maury Co TN, but don't know why he went back or what happened to him. They had 5-6 children, Emma Harriet, James Crawford, Sarah Margaret, Laura Julia [the census taker wrote LORD, but she was my GG, so I know it was a mistake), Thomas, and possibly one more. Margaret Rose was quite a bit younger than he was and remaried after Civil War to a Dr. D E D Echold, who had also been a boarder.
The Waxhaw Settlement people, and perhaps Maury TN people also, tended to marry cousins, and I admit I am totally confused by all the Crawfords, Lewis's, Craigheads, and Alexanders. Where I seem to be most frustrated is the English line and where it came from. I suspect that there may have been some same name marriages and even Uncles marrying nieces as this would explain the same name thing. If anyone can help me out, I'd really appreciate it. Sorry this is wordy.
Thanks so much,
-Marta

Family tradition has it that three English Brothers, James, David and Robert, came to this country from the region of the "Boyne Waters" in Ireland sometime before 1726. We can find no record of this. The borough of Englishtown, New Jersey is named after James English. He was married to Margaret Rhea and attended Old Tennent Church (Presbyterian). We do not know just where he lived or where he was buried. Would like to hear from someone who does.

Greenberry married Mary E Newborn 1853 in Madison Co Florida. Mary is listed in Taylor Co. FL on 1860 census with 2 children. In 1866 she remarried John Norton, so the assumption is Greenberry was deceased. Greenberry's children said they were cousins of (Taylor Co Florida) Cornelius English's children. Greenberry was my g-g grandfather.

Comments:
Patrick English and his wife Anna Collins migrated to the US with their two Children in 1795. We have extensive info on them after coming to the US but nothing to trace them back to a specific place in Ireland. I only know he was born in Northern Ireland and she was born in County Down, Northern Ireland. Their other Children were born in Delaware and Penn. Most ended up in Ohio and Indiana.

If anyone wants more info, email me and I will send you what I have.

Joshua English married Charlotte Adaline Wilson Little in Autauga County, AL 16 Jun 1842. They had: Jennie G. born March 1843; James born about 1844; Dixon Lewis born 31 Oct 1848, married in Bryan, Brazos Co, TX and died near Grimes, OK; Mollie born about 1852 married a Lawson and John McDonald, lived in TX' Archie English born abt 1863 in TX and died 16 Aug 1896 and is buried in Bryan, TX; Laura E born abt 1864 married Jerry C. Brasher; Hortense born abt. 1859 married a Stoddard about 1876; "Bam" married A. L. Beauchamp; and perhaps one more unknown child.
Joshua English has entries in the Commissions Court Records in Autauga Co, AL from 1846-1851. A Robert English bought land on 30 Nov 1841 in Autauga County but disappears. However, A Lousia English is living with the Joshua English family in 1850. She was 40 years of age. Joshua was at that time age 34 and Adaline was 32. Could Robert and Lousia have been married and Robert deceased in 1850? One of Joshua English's daughters was named Lousia, perhaps for the one living in Joshua's household in 1850. Joshua moved sometime prior to the 1860 census where he appears with his family in the Town Of Montgomery, Texas where he is a hotel owner. By 1880 he was living in Bryan, TX with his family.

Comments:
Alice (age 25) and Honor(age 18) English were sisters living with John and Margaret English in Cohoes NY in 1870 Census.No relationship in this census, but I presume niece of John or cousin. John English was the youngest son of Michael English of Waterford and then NY City; John was born in 1836 at Castle Richard, Townland of Glencairn, Parish of Tallow, Waterford. Alice married Michael Daly in Cohoes and Honora remained single. I have found immigration records for Honora with her parents;Patrick and Honora English left Ireland with their daughter Honora on the Ship Neptune arriving in NY on Mar 24,1869. Alice had come earlier on June 11, 1862, on the Ship Manhattan. There is an older Patrick English in Cohoes in 1860, but I can't connect these families to my Michael in NY City. Michael died in 1866 age 72. He is buried in Calvary Cemetery in NY City.

Comments:
According to a Declaration to Obtain Army Benefits, dated March 11. 1839, Robert English from Antrim, Ire.(who is said to have married a Sarah Ann Crooks, also from Ireland), came to America in 1774, landing in August in Philadelphia. In 1775, Robert entered service in the Revolutionary War and left service after four years, four months, and as a Prisoner of War. One account indicates that Robert had 7 sons and 3 daughters, the seven sons settling in 7 different states: William English in Indiana, James English in GA., Robert Jr. to Colorado. Henry English came to N.C. and is buried in the English Family Cemnetery in North Cove, NC where I live. Names of the other 3 sons and where they went is not known at the time of this writing. It is assumed that Robert married a second time and that some of these ten children had a different mother since Sarah Ann Crooks was only 24 years of age when she died. In 1790 a Robert English and son Henry are found in Washington Co., TN. In 1796-1798 a Robert and Henry English appear on the Carter Co., TN tax list. There is some indication that in the early 1800's our mysterious Robert English is found in Wythe Co., VA and listed on the 1820 Federal Census. I do hope that others are searching for this same Robert English and that together we can find the facts!
