The Hazelrigg Family in America

Although Thomas HAZELRIGG of VA is said to be the son of Thomas HESILRIGE (d. 1651) or of John HESILRIGE (d. 1650), brothers and sons of Sir Thomas HESILRIGE (1563-1629), note the critical difficulty with dates. Thomas of VA (b. 1615) could hardly have been the son of either the 7th or 8th son of Sir Thomas when the latter's eldest son was born in 1593. The immigrant also became an indentured servant to pay for his transport to America. It appears that an alternative English ancestry is required.

With the publication of the Hazelrigg Family History, by Lawrence Hazelrigg (2007, 652 pages) by Xlibris.com, there is now available a comprehensive study of the HAZELRIGG family, including extensive listings of descendants. In addition to eight generations of the following line and collateral lines from immigrant Thomas HAZELRIGG, the Hazelrigg Family History includes some unconnected lines from Benjamin HAZELRIGS of Gwinnett Co., GA, William HASLERIG of Walker Co., GA, Charles Henry HAZELRIGG of Clark Co., KY, and others. The only documented descendants in America of the HESILRIGE family of England are through a daughter of Sir Robert HESILRIGE, 8th Baronet, and Sarah WALTER. Their daughter Sarah married Col. David HENLEY, and they had numerous descendants through son Alexander Hasilrigge HENLEY of MA and TN. The author also maintains on-line support, including documents, photographs, corrections and additions, and an index to the book of persons with the HAZELRIGG (and variants) surname.

The family of Thomas and Ann HAZELRIGG was documented in 2002 by descendant David A. Dunn from early Virginia records. When included here in August 2002, it is believed that this was the first published identification of Thomas HAZELRIGG as the indentured servant of Col. John MOTTROM. From the copies he has shared, selected Northumberland and Westmoreland County Records are provided to support these Hazelrigg family narratives.

Thomas and Ann Hazelrigg

Thomas HAZELRIGG - b. 1615, England; d. before Dec. 1679, Westmoreland Co., VA. It is likely that Thomas HAZELRIGG became an indentured servant of Col. John MOTTROM to pay for transport to America. Available court records indicate that Thomas signed with his mark. In the 1657 estate records for Col. John MOTTROM, a list of indentured servants included Thomas HAZCHIPP or HAZELIPP, and he petitioned the court on Feb. 20, 1656/7 for "his Freedome Corne & Clothes", obtaining and order for release and payment by the estate of Col. MOTTROM. In Jul. 1657, Thomas HAZELIP received payment under court order from the estate of Col. MOTTROM for "the ballance of all Accompts betweene the sd. Colls: Estate & the said Comptons." He deposed in 1675 that he was 60 years of age. Son James consented to a Dec. 1679 court order that he live with his brother William HAZELRIGG. Thomas probably married the widow Ann COMPTON between Feb. 20 and Jul. 20, 1657 in Westmoreland Co., VA. After the death of his first wife, Thomas married Hester (or Easter) before Sep. 1673. Easter HASELRIGG made oath on Sep. 24, 1673 that she was "aged 34 years or thereabouts". She was granted administration of her deceased husband's estate in March 1680, and married second William KEMP.

Ann - d. after 1663, Westmoreland Co., VA. Ann COMPTON witnessed the will of Edward WALKER on Dec. 2, 1650, signing with her mark. She is identified in the Jul. 20, 1657 "hearing of the Cause betweene Tho: Hazelip, whoe marryed wth: the Widdowe & Relict of Jno: Compton, decd." concerning the estate of Col. John MOTTROM. On Jul. 20, 1663, Mrs. Anne HAZELRIGG made an accounting of the cattle of her minor son John COMPTON [Virginia Colonial Abstracts, Vol. I, p. 514 and 542].

Children of Thomas and Ann Hazelrigg

  1. William - b. about 1658, Westmoreland Co., VA. In Dec. 1679, William obtained a court order to have his brother James live with him. In May 1692, Hester KEMP, wife of William KEMP and widow of Thomas HAZELRIGG, petitioned the court to have her stepson William relinquish 50 acres of land whch she claimed as a dower right. The court ordered that the property be assigned to her.
  2. James - b. about 1660, Westmoreland Co., VA; d. 1713, Westmoreland Co., VA.

    1. William - d. 1795-96, Westmoreland Co., VA. His will dated May 21, 1795 and proved August 22, 1796 names wife Mary, granddaughter Mary PORTER, daughter Keziah McCLANAHAN, and Edward PORTER [see above].

William and Mary HAZELRIGG were parents of at least one daughter:
      1. Keziah - b. before Mar. 1755; d. before May 1795. The wills of her grandmother and her father indicates that Keziah married a Mr. McCLANAHAN after Mar. 17, 1755, and prior to May 21, 1795. Married John McCLANAHAN (d. about 1845, Westmoreland Co., VA), son of William McCLANAHAN and Martha SMITH. John's brother Rev. William S.

Richard K. and Ann (Williams) Hazelrigg

Richard K. HAZELRIGG - b. before 1697, Westmoreland Co., VA; d. about 1762, Prince William Co., VA. Son of James HAZELRIGG and Ann. Note that the middle initial of 'K.' is traditional, with no documented support. Richard stated that he was the oldest son of his deceased father, James HAZELRIGG, in Jun. 1713 and returned the inventory of the estate in Aug. 1713. James settled in Prince William Co. by 1744. His will was admitted to probate Feb. 22, 1762, presented by his sons James, Abel and William, and proved by the oath of two persons, including Elizabeth VICKERS (relationship, if any, unknown).

Ann WILLIAMS - b. abt 1695. The will of Edward WILLIAMS, dated January 26, 1733 and proved May 28, 1734, Westmoreland Co., VA, names "neice Frances daughter of Richard HAZELRIGG" [see above]. From the will abstract it appears that Edward WILLIAMS had wife Sarah, brother William WILLIAMS (father of Sarah), brother Joshua WILLIAMS (father of Elizabeth), and a sister who married Richard HAZELRIGG (father of Frances). The omission of his sister's given name suggests that she may have died before the will date.

Children of Richard and Ann Hazelrigg

  1. Frances - b. abt 1713. Likely the "Miss Frances Hazelrigg" noted in the 1768 and 1769 ledgers of James Glasscock and Company. If so, Frances apparently never married.
  2. John - b. 1715, Westmoreland Co., VA; d. after 1780, probably in Prince William Co., VA. In a deed of Apr. 18, 1764 the wife of John is identified as Elizabeth.  In a deed of Jun. 10, 1780 his wife is identified as Nancy. No evidence has been located indicating that John had children.
  3. Richard - b. about 1718; d. Feb. 1757, Frederick Co., VA. His will dated Aug. 11, 1756, probated Mar. 1, 1757, names the following: his father, brother John, brother James, brother William, brother-in-law Peter Cockrell, brother Abel, cousin Nancy Haselrig (probably his niece, the daughter of Abel, who was just mentioned), cousin Thomas Cockrell (probably his nephew, son of sister Nancy), and cousin Nancy (identified as the daughter of brother William). Executors were his father Richard and brother-in-law Peter COCKRILL. In court Jul. 5, 1762, Ann is named as the daughter of Richard HAZELRIGG, deceased, and chose Peter COCKRILL for her guardian.  On Oct. 5, 1762 the Executors of the estate of Richard HAZELRIGG were ordered to deliver to the guardian of Nancy HAZILRIGG her part of her grandfather's estate. Daughters of Richard HAZELRIGG: Ann and Nancy.
  4. Thomas - b. about 1720, Westmoreland Co., VA; d. after 1777, Prince WIlliam Co., VA. Only circumstantial evidences places him as a son of Richard and Ann HAZELRIGG.
  5. Abel - b. about 1722, Westmoreland Co., VA; d. about 1778, Albemarle Co., VA. Abel and Mary sold land holdings in Prince William Co., VA 19 Apr 1764 and apparently removed to Albemarle Co., VA at that time. A court record of Aug. 12, 1772 names Abel in a trespass suit. Married about 1750 Mary THURMOND (d. Jun. 1817, Albemarle Co., VA). Mary gave consent to daughter Sarah's marriage Mar. 29, 1786. Children of Abel and Mary HAZELRIGG: a daughter who married Joseph PYE; Richard married first Mary 'Polly' EUBANK, and second Mary SHOUN; Sarah married Lewis SHIFLETT; and Nancy married Edward WINGFIELD.
  6. Mary - b. about 1724, Westmoreland Co., VA; d. Mar. 28, 1744, Albemarle Co., VA. Married about 1743 in Albemarle Co., VA to Nathaniel HAGGARD (b. Nov. 21, 1723, Overwharton, Stafford Co., VA; d. Aug. 21, 1806, Winchester, Clark Co., KY). The will of Nathaniel HAGGARD, dated Jul. 16, 1800 and proved Aug. 25, 1806 in Clark Co., KY, names "Hennery Hazelrigg and son, John." Nathaniel HAGGARD was married second by 1751 to Elizabeth GENTRY, daughter of Nicholas GENTRY and Mary BROOKS. Sons of Mary and Nathaniel HAGGARD: Rev. Henry Hazelrigg married Dolly RANDOLPH; and possibly Rev. Martin never married. Rev. Henry Hazelrigg HAGGARD (b. Mar. 27, 1744, Albemarle Co., VA; d. 1842, Bibb Co., AL) married Dorothea 'Dolly' RANDOLPH (about 1746-about 1813), and they had ten children, including David B. HAGGARD (b. 1767, Albemarle Co., VA; d. 1850, Winchester, Clark Co., KY). The latter married Amelia 'Milly' ELKIN (b. Jun 16, 1777, Albemarle Co., VA; d. 1865), and their daughter Sally married James HOLLOWAY. The latter was son of John HOLLOWAY and Millie BUNCH; refer to HOLLOWAY narrative for family details.
  7. William - b. about 1725; d. 1805, Clark Co., KY.
  8. James - b. 1738, Westmoreland Co., VA; d. 1819, Clark Co., KY. Received 350 acres of land in Fayette Co., KY, surveyed June 26, 1783, by a survey team including Daniel BOONE, Deputy Surveyor, Fayette Co., KY. Married first 1759 in Prince William Co., VA to Margaret GREGG (b. 1742, Westmoreland Co., VA), and second on Oct. 30, 1793 in Clark Co., KY to Lucia 'Lucy' PETTIT (b. about 1743, York Co., PA), daughter of Thomas PETTIT and Rebecca HENDRICKS of York Co., PA. Lucy was first married on Nov. 27, 1763 in York Co., PA to Patrick DONALDSON (d. Mar. 1781, Clarke Co., KY), with children John, Thomas, William, Betsy, and Sally. She second married Col. John FLEMING (d. about 1787, Fleming Co., KY), with children John, Thomas Wallace, and William. Supporting this identification of Lucy is a listing of Clarke Co., KY marriages which includes "Robert Donilson-Sary Donalson, May 12, 1796," and the original which includes consent for Sarah to be married given by "James Hazelrigg, stepfather." Children James and Margaret HAZELRIGG: Joshua married America Frances WRIGHT; Nancy married David SNOWDEN; Mary 'Polly' married William CRAYCRAFT; Rebecca married John STILLWELL; Eli married first Rebecca FLETCHER, and second Ruth (FLETCHER) BYRAM; Elizabeth married John McGINNIS; and perhaps Ruth.

William and Jemima Hazelrigg

William HAZELRIGG - b. about 1725, Westmoreland Co., VA; d. 1805, Clark Co., KY. Son of Richard K. HAZELRIGG and Ann WILLIAMS. Executor of his father's will, 1762, and named in his brother Richard's will, 1757, as follows: "I leave to my brother, William, all my working tools," and " I leave to my cousin <niece>, Nancy Hazelrigg, daughter of my brother, William Hazelrigg, ten shilling." Sold land in VA in 1780 and received grant of 750 acres in Fayette Co., KY on Mar. 15, 1780 which was described in a Jun. 26, 1783 survey by Daniel BOONE and others as on the "Cantiuke river in the first large bend above Hickman's Crick." A deed of Oct. 8, 1792 transfering 150 acres of this tract to his Joshua HAZELRIGG was signed by mark by William HAZELRIGG, Senr., and witnessed by William HAZELRIGG, Junior, Graham HAZELRIGG and James HAZLERIGG. Though relationships are not stated in the deed, it is probable that witnesses William, Jr. and Graham were sons of William, Sr., that witness James was brother of William, Sr., and that Joshua was the son of the witness James HAZELRIGG. The inventory of the estate of William HAZELRIGG, December 1805, Clark Co., KY, is extensive, signifying he was a man of considerable means. William may have been married more than once, since his oldest child was born around 1745 and his youngest some 30 years later. However, no documentary evidence has been located naming another wife. The birth order of William's children are given as they appear in Hazelrigg Family History.

Jemima NEAVILL? - b. about 1730; d. before 1805, KY. Named as wife of William on Prince William Co., VA deed of Jun. 10, 1780. Jemima may have been the only wife of William, being married about age 15 and having her youngest child at age 45. If William had a prior wife, Jemima was at least the mother of the younger children. It is noted that daughter Frances and son John both named daughters Jemima. Some family sources have suggested that Jemima's birth surname may be NEAVILL.

Apr. 1, 1792, Clark Co., KY; d. 1846, Linn Co., IA), who was married first on Nov. 3, 1814 in Clark Co., KY to Eleanor BEALL (b. Mar. 15, 1795, Clark Co., KY; d.

William and Sarah (Knox) Hazelrigg

William HAZELRIGG -  b. 1764, Prince William Co., VA; estate inventoried Mar. 16, 1821, Clark Co., KY. The son of William HAZELRIGG and Jemima, he resided in PA prior to moving to KY. William was a member of the Chester Co., PA militia in 1783, and served in the Washington Co., PA militia 1783-84 (DAR National Number 581490). He moved to Clark Co., KY, probably in 1784, witnessed a deed  there in 1792, and executed a deed there with his wife in 1794. William has been located in the 1810 and 1820 censuses of Clark Co., KY. The place of his marriage about 1783 has not been established, but was most likely Clark Co., KY.

Sarah KNOX - b. abt 1765, KY; d. after Aug. 1836, Pettis Co., MO. A letter written in 1904 by George H. HAZELRIGG reads, in part, "My grandfather's name was William. My grandmother's maiden name was Knox. They lived in Clark County, Kentucky." Sarah was married second on May 24, 1824, in Clark Co., KY, by Thomas BOONE, to Daniel DONAHUE, whose deceased first wife was Jemima HAZELRIGG, daughter of John HAZELRIGG and Anna CLEVELAND. Deeds in Clark Co., KY between 1827 and 1836 identify Sarah DONAHUE, wife of Daniel, as widow of William HAZELRIGG. Sarah and Daniel were living in Pettis Co., MO in 1836.

Children of William and Sarah Hazelrigg
